We're just about halfway through the year and Chatty would like to send readers into the second-half of 2014 with another collection of three action-packed Twitch highlights. This week, Derringer dispenses shovel justice with Shovel Knight, ChiefSquattingBear prepares to duel with Nidhogg, and bcyde starts to get into the spirit of Evo by practicing some Ultra Street Fighter IV.

Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of June 28, 2014.

Warning: Some clips may contain NSFW language.


Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight is certainly a great throwback to a bygone era, as Yacht Club Games scratches all of the right itches with their 2D platformer. Our review was certainly positive and now Derringer is checking the game out for himself. Watch as he tries to make some of these precision jumps for the first time. Can he make it through the dangerous pitfalls set by the Order of No Quarter? Give the video a look and find out!

Nidhogg

The Steam Summer Sale is rolling on strong and one of its most enticing offerings is Nidhogg. Aside from some online quirks, Messhof's fencing game is a very solid one, as Chatty's ChiefSquattingBear is discovering with this local multiplayer clip. If the playthrough below piques your interest, Nidhogg is still going for a nice discount over on Steam. There's also a PS4 version in the works, too!

Ultra Street Fighter 4

It's a great time to be a fighting game fan. This year's CEO tournament is in full swing and Evo 2014 is in two short weeks. To get into the spirit, bcyde is taking some time to learn some Decapre to add to his already potent character arsenal. Check out how he fares, alongside some other ShackFighters like eeeealmo and wtf242.

Senior Editor

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
