Streamer Raises Almost $1 Million For Charity In Just Four Hours

GuardianCon, which began a few years back as a small Destiny con and has since grown into an all-weekend show held in July in Orlando, also runs a week-long charity stream. Which has just raised over $3 million for a children’s hospital in Memphis.

As Forbes report, the stream operated in four-hour blocks, with streamers, teams and even some companies taking part. Bungie, for example, raised...

The Steam Stream Plays Murder, A Gorgeous Cyberpunk Adventure [Update: Finished]

The Steam Stream Plays <i>Murder</i>, A Gorgeous Cyberpunk Adventure [Update: Finished]
SteamedSteamed is dedicated to all things in and around Valve’s PC gaming service.  

Murder is a cyberpunk adventure with a great look and an interesting concept. Watch me play it right now.

After a few months of hiatus (I moved, I didn’t have reliable Internet for a while, it was A Whole Thing), The Steam Stream is back! Today I’m gonna play Murder—probably all the way through, because I’ve...

The Longest Five Minute Boat Ride To Hell Ever

The Longest Five Minute Boat Ride To Hell Ever

The opening moments of Skobbejak Games’ first-person horror game Vapour are alot like being seated next to a chatty person on an airplane, only with more flames and dead bodies.

If the developers were trying to convey the notion of hell, they nailed it. Protagonist Charles the Psychotic Warlock spends the opening four minutes or so of the game telling us all about his life, for the...

The Saturday Stream Plays Grow Home, A Wondrous Robot Adventure (Done!)

The Saturday Stream Plays <i>Grow Home, </i>A Wondrous Robot Adventure (Done!)

If it's worth your time , it's certainly worth mine. Today the Saturday Stream takes a flight of fancy with Ubisoft's Botanical Ultility Droid, the kindest BUD of them all.

An experimental platformer with clunky controls and strange alien physics, Grow Home is nothing short of delightful. It's the exact opposite of dark and gritty, in many ways the anti-thesis of many of the more...

Overwatch League's Eqo Faces Punishment After Making Slant-Eye Gesture On Stream

<i>Overwatch</i> League's Eqo Faces Punishment After Making Slant-Eye Gesture On Stream

Josh “Eqo” Corona of the Philadelphia Fusion is in hot water with his team and maybe the Overwatch League after making a slant-eye gesture about Korean players during an Overwatch stream last weekend.

After someone compared his skill to a Korean player’s, Corona (who was born in Colombia and raised in Israel) said “I am Korean” and pulled the outer edges of his eyes back. The Twitch video and...

Watch Me Play Steam's Most Promising Dinosaur Game

Ark: Survival Evolved looked almost too good to be true when I reported on it, but is the hyper-ambitious dinosaur game any good? Let’s find out. Tune in below.

Please, Steam Dinosaur Game, Don't Suck

Goodness gracious, ARK: Survival Evolved looks cool. So of course, I’m worried.

Tyler1 Takes Over Twitch In His Return To League of Legends

Tyler1 Takes Over Twitch In His Return To <i>League of Legends</i>

After his indefinite ban from League of Legends was lifted last week , Tyler1 made his return to streaming the MOBA game on his Twitch channel today, decked out in full Draven cosplay. The virtual seats filled pretty quick.

In his first game back, the opposing team recognized Tyler and banned his signature Draven. As he locked in a different champion, the spectators poured in and the chat...

Let's Play The Definitive DMC With Some Classic Devil May Cry Style 

Let's Play The Definitive <i>DMC</i> With Some Classic <i>Devil May Cry</i> Style 

I really enjoyed DMC upon its first release, dark-haired emo Dante and all. Released today, the Definitive Edition for PS4 and Xbox One gives fans of the first game a more traditional demon spawn hero to play with. He'll do. Let's play!

I've not streamed directly from my PlayStation 4 in ages, so if this all goes to crap we can blame Sony. It certainly isn't my lack of preparedness.

If...

Watch Me Play <i>Final Fantasy XV</i>, Live [UPDATE: Stream Over]

Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae is out today, and to celebrate, we're throwing it up on a livestream and seeing what happens.

Yep, for my first ever Twitch broadcast I'll be running around as Noctis and crew in the much-anticipated FFXV demo, which comes alongside Final Fantasy Type-0 HD on PS4 and Xbox One. I'll be streaming for an hour or so, depending how things go—and depending how much...

The Saturday Stream Attempts To Play Smite (All Done)

The Saturday Stream Attempts To Play <i>Smite (All Done)</i>

Having spent last weekend at the Smite World Championships here in Atlanta, I am now a certified expert in all things related to Hi-Rez Studios' third-person action MOBA, with the possible exception of playing it.

There's something about attending a live event that makes a person brave. During the quieter moments of the competition I snuck into the press room, loaded the game onto my...

Hearthstone Pro Leaves It All Up To One Card

<i>Hearthstone </i>Pro Leaves It All Up To One Card

Yogg-Saron is one of the most random cards in Hearthstone, a digital card game that loves randomness. Dropping it is usually—always—a gamble, so when Hearthstone pro Thijs Molendijk dropped it with one health against a stacked board, he was leaving the game up to one last chance.

The way Yogg-Saron works is that when it’s played, it casts one spell with a random target for every spell you’ve...

Update: The stream is done but if you want to see it, you can click the video below for 3 and a half hours of Fire Emblem goodness.

Like Dark Souls, But Spookier: The Steam Stream Plays Malebolgia

Like <i>Dark Souls</i>, But Spookier: The Steam Stream Plays <i>Malebolgia</i>

Malebolgia is best described as Dark Souls, except gorgeously cel-shaded and spooky as hell. I hope it’s as good as it looks. Watch me play it below.

Also on the docket for today’s stream: Karmaflow, a rock opera video game with involvement from a surprising number of metal stars, and a game where you’re a goddamn sperm. And maybe a Witcher 2 mod I’ve been playing to stave off my Witcher 3...

Two Commentators Fall For Oldest Donation Prank In The Book

Two<i> </i>Commentators Fall For Oldest Donation Prank In The Book

Like Moe Szyslak from The Simpsons, two commentators at this weekend’s Smash The Record bit down hard on some wordplay bait from donors.

Phil “EE” Visu and Daniel “DC” Coke were on desk duty last night for Smash The Record, a multi-game charity event raising funds for St. Jude Play Live. Much like Games Done Quick, those who donate can have a message and their name read aloud on the stream,...

The Saturday Stream Challenges Heroes Of The Storm [All Done!]

The Saturday Stream Challenges <i>Heroes Of The Storm </i>[All Done!]

"Is challenged by" might have been a more appropriate turn of phrase to use in the headline, but I figured if I wrote it that way and believed hard enough it would come true. Anyway, let's play Blizzard's MOBA!

Several members of Kotaku have been getting into the MOBA scene these days. As I type this Yannick is likely playing League of Legends, still wondering why the game he is supposed...
