Twitch And Harmonix Announce Collaborative Project Twitch Sings

At TwitchCon today, the Amazon-owned streaming service announced a new karaoke initiative with music-game developers Harmonix called Twitch Sings.

The idea is as simple as you imagine, you can stream yourself singing along to music from Twitch's library of songs while an audience watches and judges you. In addition to judging you, they can pick vote to pick the next song, or let the chat control the effects going on around you. It sounds like a really cool idea and seems to limit audience interaction in ways that chat can't troll you, which is always a plus. Chat can however challenge singers to do things like singing like a surfer or holding a note for seconds.

The actual karaoke function seems to be using Rock Band's gameplay mechanics, which explains the Harmonix collaboration. Players can sing in groups or individually, but a camera and a microphone seems pretty necessary for the entire experience. Beta sign ups are going on right here and lets you choose platforms of iOS, Android (coming soon), or PC.

New Monster Hunter Movie Photo Shows Off Slinger

It is apparently no small point of pride for the people working on the upcoming Monster Hunter movie that the weapons in the film are accurate to the weapons in the game. The other day, a screen from the film showed a character carrying a rifle, causing fans to raise eyebrows at what exactly this movie was going for. Well, Milla Jovovich is happy to put doubts to rest.

Captain Natalie Artemis. Ranger. Monster Hunter. Just a little peek for all the @monsterhunterworld fans out there who were worried the other day.

Yooka-Laylee Shows Off 64-Bit Tonic For Nostalgic Fans

Yooka-Laylee Shows Off 64-Bit Tonic For Nostalgic Fans

Yooka-Laylee has never made any bones about how close to the traditional N64 platformers of yore it hews to, to the point where people have mistaken it as a sequel to Banjo-Kazooie at a glance. One of the game's promises from near launch dives deeper into that idea by introducing a 64-Bit Tonic, which Team 17 says makes the game look like a N64 title while avoiding all the copyrights of using those words.

Some fans are a little annoyed, considering the length of time between the announcements and updates. Comments on the post complain that they thought it would actually be a real low-poly mode that looks like N64 games, when the 64-bit tonic in Yooka-Laylee appears to be lower settings, a lower capped framerate, and some filters instead – which, to be clear, is not less than what Team 17 promised.

There's still no date for the release of the tonic, however, so there could still be some time to go before it makes it out to consumer hands. At the moment, though, this doesn't seem to be plucking at the nostalgia strings fans hoped it would be. When it does release, the Tonic update will be on all supported platforms.
