The final Saturday Morning Stream of 2014 is now live — on Sunday night. I promised one last hurrah and here it is — watch me play Omikron: The Nomad Soul, the 1999 classic from Quantic Dream, back when their games had real controls. Instead of making a big deal about it, just hit up my Twitch channel to watch.
Tomorrow Skylanders: Trap Team introduces two completely new elements to Activision's wildly successful toy-meets-game series. We're going to play with them today, and you can watch.
I know absolutely nothing about this colorful new platformer other than it being developed by the studio behind Hard Reset and the Shadow Warrior reboot and the fact that there's a level covered with strawberry jam. That's good enough for me.
The Saturday Morning Stream will return tomorrow. No, it's still the Saturday Morning Stream on Sunday. Unfortunately today's game, Farming Simulator 15, will not start from Steam on my computer. I am genuinely disappointed. Maybe they'll fix it by tomorrow.
When Rovio and Hasbro announced Angry Birds Transformers, I imagined sling-shotting helmet-wearing birds at stationary targets, just like Angry Birds Star Wars. The game I'm streaming this morning is not that. It's more of an action game.
For the past two weeks I've had to hear or read about how much almost everyone on the site playing Middle-earth: Shadows of Mordor is loving the game. Now it's my turn to exterminate some orcs.
According to developer The Astronauts, horror adventure The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is game to be played at night, alone, with the lights out. So I'm playing it in the morning with a group of Twitch friends in my brightly-lit office.
Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS is out in Japan. So while you wait anxiously for the upcoming western release, join me as I once again steal the Saturday Morning Stream from Fahey’s cold dead hands to bring you Japanese import gaming action.
No Saturday Morning Stream this week. A massive migraine has derailed plans to play and talk about games this morning. We will see how our game-playing robot feels tomorrow. We apologize for the convenience.
In this week's very special episode of the Saturday Morning Stream, the mildly-medicated Michael Fahey triumphantly returns to get his first-person magic combat on with Lichdom: Battlemage.
While not out for another month in the West, Hyrule Warriors—the lovechild of The Legend of Zelda and Dynasty Warriors—was released in Japan this past Thursday. And since I'm here in Japan with my Wii U all ready to go, Fahey has graciously allowed me to stream for you all this fine Saturday.
Sacred 3 was quietly released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC this week, which is never a good sign. Is there more to the shallow sequel than dashed hopes?
I had two shiny new things I wanted to show you all this weekend — Gameloft's new first-person shooter, Modern Combat 5: Blackout and Nvidia's powerful Shield Android tablet. Since the latter comes with built-in Twitch streaming, I figured we'd do both.
Thanks to Valve's big-ass DOTA 2 competition, I've got multiplayer online battle arena games on the mind this weekend, but I'm no DOTA 2 player. I'm barely an Infinite Crisis player, but at least I'm dying surrounded by DC superheroes.
Some weekends I pick a game to stream based on its relevance or popularity. This week I picked Adult Swim's Super Comboman, because it looks like a lot of fun and I'm too tired to be bored.
I backed it, Kirk loves it, now watch me play Larian Studios' successfully Kickstarted take on the old school strategy RPG.
When is a movie tie-in not a movie tie-in? When Activision and developer Edge of Reality mix movie machines with Cybertronian ones. Let's see how that worked out for them.
As announced at the big show, Bungie's next big thing scored a PlayStation 4 exclusive alpha test this weekend. I just so happen to have a PS4 and access to that alpha test. Wanna watch?
The Saturday Morning Stream will return next weekend. Fahey is currently battling strep throat and doesn't want to risk infecting you all through Twitch. This also means he won't be making the Games Journalism panel at Momocon in Atlanta today. As an apology, he offers this tiny GIF he found of a doggy on Reddit.
In this week's exciting episode of The Saturday Morning Stream, I play a challenging fantasy action-adventure game that just sort of showed up this week — Bound by Flame.
