Chatty Twitch Highlights 53: Time to go Homeworld

After an unexpected hiatus, the Chatty Twitch Highlights are back! And there's no better way to come back than by revisiting one of the greatest PC games ever made.


After last week's unexpected hiatus, it's time to return to doing what this weekly feature does best: taking Chatty's best playthroughs on Twitch and posting them for the Shacknews audience. With that, we welcome everyone to the 53rd edition of the Shacknews Chatty Twitch Highlights.

For this week, we start by revisiting one of the most beloved PC classics of all-time by having dael walk us through Homeworld. Then it's trucking with Euro Truck Simulator 2 before getting our fix of Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Warning: Some clips may contain NSFW language.

Homeworld Remastered Collection

Homeworld finished at #38 on the Chatty community's list of Top 100 PC Games of All-Time. It is a beloved classic, which is why there was some cautious optimism when Gearbox first announced they'd be tackling the franchise. Just how much would they tinker with an old favorite?

As Steven notes in his impressions, Gearbox worked wonders on the old game, offering up both a classic mode and a remaster that fully brings the old experience to life without compromising what made it so great in the first place. It's the shiniest coat of paint possible. How does it look? Chatty's dael played through the first part of the original campaign with its remastered visuals. It's every bit as impressive as one would have hoped.

Euro Truck Simulator 2

It's time to take another drive across the European continent with Euro Truck Simulator 2. And when our posters aren't busy getting themselves in multi-truck pileups, they can be heard singing to music from Baywatch. We miss David Hasselhoff here on Shacknews. Hemtroll has the full playthrough on his Twitch channel.

Ultra Street Fighter 4

Wednesday fighting game tournaments are not all that uncommon. Los Angeles and New York both have their weekly tournaments that fighting game fans set their watches to. But in-between attending tournaments himself, Chatty's Mantle takes part in competitive Street Fighter play himself. Last Wednesday, he hosted some casual sessions to try out some of the game's best fighters. So those looking for their Ultra Street Fighter 4 fix will want to check out Mantle's Twitch channel.

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?
