Dead Nation lands on the PS4 today with a few upgrades. The original was a decent twin stick shooter but not really a stand out in my opinion. I’d probably skip this new version if it wasn’t for the Broadcast+ feature. Supposedly it will allow Twitch viewers to spawn items, weapons and even more zombies into the game by typing keywords into the chat. I’m sort of curious how this works so let’s give it a try today.
I’m still waiting for the game to hit the PS4 store but as soon as it does I’ll grab it. We will start streaming around 2:00pm PST today. I’m not entirely sure how the Twitch stuff works but we can all figure it out together. You can watch the stream right here.
If you want to join in the chat and try messing with our game you should be able to do that from my Twitch page.
In other streaming news we will be checking out Twitch on the Xbox One tomorrow and you can watch. Our friend Larry A.K.A Major Nelson is going to swing by the PA office and take us through the new Twitch app before it hits next week. We will start streaming around 12:00pm PST and the plan is to stream for about an hour while we check out all the new functionality. This one will be broadcast on Major Nelson’s Twitch channel though so you’ll need to watch it on his page right here.
I’ve read a bit about how Twitch will work on Xbox One and it sounds damn good. Just be prepared for my Twitch channel to turn into Titanfall 24/7.
