It hasn't been the best week for Twitch, as far as fan relations goes. But even in the face of this week's new policies, there's still a solid base of Twitch users here on Chatty that are posting gameplay clips of their recent sessions. This week, we take a look at sergeon taking us to a PlanetSide 2 Shackbattle, while raija runs through some Dota 2 and dael re-lives the classic Mirror's Edge.

Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of August 9, 2014.

Warning: Some clips may contain NSFW language.


PlanetSide 2

You can bet that Chatty's Giant Comunist Robots group is continuing to venture through PlanetSide 2, especially with the latest Directives update now in place. Let's check out sergeon helping lead the GCR push a Sunderer vehicle forward past heavy resistance.

Dota 2

Chatty's raija feels intense on this day, so he unplugs all external distractions and simply focused on the task at hand. So he picks up a Drow Ranger in this Dota 2 session, showing off some ranged gameplay and rolling through his enemies.

Mirror's Edge

Mirror's Edge remains a modern classic that fans look back at fondly. So this week, dael takes us back to the parkour-heavy platformer. Not only that, but he's running it on a high-end PC, reminding fans of how the game still holds up as a model for great PC games. Also, he reminds us that it's very easy to die. Very easy! Enjoy this clip and we'll be back next week with a whole new round of highlights!

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?

      Mirror's Edge is bad ass, played it through already on 360 a few years ago and I'm actually feeling my way around it now and contemplating speed running it. It'll be a LONG while until I attempt a whole run, lots of stuff to learn and practice first but it's all stuff I like. I did competitive Quake back in the day and there were a lot of trick jumps that came with that which were a lot of fun to do. Mirror's Edge has a ton of them and they seem pretty doable.
