Chatty Twitch Highlights 39: Sunset Overdrive, Battlefield 4, and more

It's a special edition of the Twitch roundup, where we take a look at next week's Sunset Overdrive and help determine whether this Xbox One exclusive is worth the hype. Also,


Update: And by "Battlefield 4," I, of course, mean "Battlefield 2: Bad Company." This has been updated.

Today's a good day for the Twitch roundup. To go along with our regular gameplay clips from Chatty, we also have a very special look at Sunset Overdrive, from both the Shacknews video crew and from warcrow. The game isn't out for another week, so give it a look and see if it's your cup of tea. And along with that, we take a look at the weekly Battlefield 4 Shackbattle from Hemtroll and some Darkstone co-op from Sapiens.

Warning: Some clips may contain NSFW language.

Sunset Overdrive

We take a momentary pit stop this week to look at the exploits of the Shacknews video crew. That's because they have an advance copy of Sunset Overdrive, which is set to hit next week. Jury's been out on this one for a lot of people, so as a public service, let's give an idea of how this looks. Take a look at the latest from Insomniac below and judge for yourself whether this one will be worth picking up when it hits in ten days.

The Battlefield 4 Battlefield 2: Bad Company revival continues among the Chatty community, as we jump into this week's Shackbattle. Watch as Hemtroll kicks things off by shooting down a helicopter, because he can! That's followed up with sniping shenanigans and a skirmish along the snow. Check out the whole thing below.

Finally, we take a look at one of the classics. Sapiens jumps into the fantasy hack-n-slash RPG Darkstone, but he's not doing so along. He brings his partner Shmel along, as they explore the vast world as both man and beast.

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?
