Chatty Twitch Highlights 37: Learning Elite: Dangerous and more

This week's highlights see sergeon learning how to Elite: Dangerous, while Chatty gets together to hit Battlefield 4 and Euro Truck Simulator. They're doing it for the children.


Not only is Chatty comprised of some of the best gamers you can find, but they're also happy to share some of their knowledge with one another. That's when they aren't busy using their skills to take over the world, of course. For this week's highlights, we take a look at the usual Shackbattles, while also highlighting one of the more anticipated future releases, as we peek into Elite: Dangerous.

Warning: Some clips may contain NSFW language.

Elite: Dangerous

Chatty has been excited about the Kickstarter success story known as Elite: Dangerous, fully engaging in the game's alpha and beta. But just what is Elite: Dangerous and how does it work? Our own sergeon (armed with his Oculus Rift headset) is about to find out, as Chatty's Wadmaasi walks him through the game.

Battlefield 4

Chatty has been engaging in the classic Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for the past several weeks, but with EA and DICE deploying a new fall patch for Battlefield 4, the weekly Shackbattle has veered back to more modern times. The patch was met with mixed reactions, you can tell below. Watch as hemtroll starts off with a profanity-laden tirade against DICE, while sergeon offers a more optimistic viewpoint of the Shack's drunken shenanigans.

Euro Truck Simulator 2

To cap this week off, Chatty decides to ride out. A number of our posters have come together to form a convoy for Euro Truck Simulator 2. Watch as hemtroll as the rest of the Chatty convoy get together to make as many deliveries to Abderdeen as possible. They're doing it for the children!
