With summer in full swing, Chatty is catching up with some of the best games from recent weeks. That includes Divinity: Original Sin, which Sapiens is happily running through on the recommendation of fellow Chatty posters. I'm also tossing in the opening minutes of The Wolf Among Us, which offers but a mere taste of the final episode, in case you need some motivation to catch up with Telltale's story. And wtf242 continues his efforts to master the game of Hearthstone, showing improvement with each passing day.
Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of July 12, 2014.

The Wolf Among Us
Telltale wrapped up its adaptation of Bill Willingham's Fables universe and it was quite wonderful. And episode five only clinched the story's brilliance, so I took it upon myself to take a look at the final episode's opening minutes. They not only recap the story (though it's my own personal story. Your choices will vary), but also give a glimpse into what's to come in the game's climactic confrontation. It should serve as a good motivator to get stragglers jumping in, because this story is not to be missed.
Diivinity: Original Sin
No game has quite captured Chatty's imagination in recent months quite like Divinity: Original Sin. The old-school RPG from Larian Games is harkening back to what everyone loves about classic RPGs of a bygone era, but also doing more than enough to stand out as a great modern RPG, as well. Sapiens offers a nice look at one small example of what makes the game a blast, as you can watch him stack some barrels.
Hearthstone: Heoes of Warcraft
Hearthstone is an easy game to learn, but incredibly difficult to master and perhaps nobody knows that more than Chatty's wtf242, who has been among the most vocal posters in regards to how to get better at the game. He's taken a lot of people's advice to heart and has gradually started to improve his game. So we're featuring one of his ranked matches, as he takes Malfurion the Druid out for a spin and finds himself in a very close match. And anyone that has participated in these kinds of matches knows that he can only get better from here.
