We at the Nerd Chambers have been gaming since our first memories, and we are sure our fellow nerds out there can relate! In our hiatus Jace Rush and myself have decided to take our gaming addiction to an all time high. We are excited to delve into the depths of 2018 with an emense amount of gaming, but this year we are going to tackle it in a slightly different way. Jace Rush and I are excited to start 2018 with a lot more streaming at The Nerd Chambers after our purchases of new compooters!
We will be looking for all of the big titles throughout the year on console, but now you can follow us on our new journey into the PC world! It has been fun to do some light streaming in games like Rocket League and Call of Duty, but we have been getting extremely excited to branch out into the intense realm of PC with games like League of Legends! You can check out our rise from the bottom of Bronze V into a legendary Bronze IV! We are also wanting to take our new computers on an adventure with many more games! Feel free to comment any recommendations for us to try out on PC or even console for 2018!

Twitch just announced earlier today on their blog that users will be able to buy games and in-game content directly from their website. The way it will work is that viewers that are interested in the game that is being played by a given streamer will be able to purchase the game via a link below the video player, if the game is available through the “Get it on Twitch” program.
This program, however, will only be available with partnered streamers who agree to be apart of it, but if you are a broadcaster, why wouldn’t you? Not only will does this increase interactivity between a streamer and his/her chat, it is also going to be another way for viewers to support streamers. What we mean is that 5% of the revenue earned in this program is going straight to the streamers channel from which it is purchased.
It will also benefit the viewer as well as Twitch will be giving out TwitchCrates to anyone who purchase through the “Get it on Twitch” program. The crates will contain “a game-specific emote, a chat badge, or some Bits,” according to the blog post.
There are already several game developers that have jumped on board with this program like Ubisoft and Telltale, and the games that will be apart of the program will be announced in the near future. The program itself is expected to start this Spring so be on the lookout.
What do you guys think about this new concept by Twitch? Let us know on Twitter, and don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram as well.
