Smite starter gods overview stream this Tuesday night

SMITE for Xbox One

We post our streaming schedule each week, however, we'd like to start highlighting at least one of our more unique streams each week. Join us Tuesday from 10PM EST to 2AM EST for a Smite overview and in depth look at each of the starter gods (Ymir, Neith, Thor, Guan Yu and Ra). We will go over everything you need to know as a new player to get started, as well as breaking down some of the jargon you will hear if you watch pro matches or high elo PC streamers.

We will be streaming for people with no MOBA experience working our way to build the basic foundation you need to succeed.  We will go over basic strategies for both Arena and Conquest, as well as helping you know what your role is in an Arena/Conquest match for your specific character so that you can help the team win. We will give you basic item builds and let you know the key combos you need to hit. We may even touch on some more nuanced points once we've had time to cover the basics. If you have any questions during the stream feel free to interject and we will try to back up and explain things.

For those of you who can't make the stream feel free to bookmark this page, and we will edit the VOD in on Wednesday.  Join us every Tuesday at 10PM EST for Smite action on Twitch.

Should game developers let everyone stream every part of every game?

Xbox Twitch Streaming Pause Screen

Last month, XBLA Fans was streaming Resident Evil Revelations 2 on our Twitch channel when something unexpected happened: the feed abruptly cut to the pause screen pictured above. XBLA Fans' Michael Cheng hadn't stopped playing and was still attempting to actively broadcast gameplay, so we knew something external was affecting the stream.

That something was Capcom. The game's developer-slash-publisher, in an effort to minimize gamers' exposure to certain scenes that are critical to determining what ending players receive, blocks segments of Revelations 2 from being streamed via the Xbox Twitch app. Capcom kicks all Xbox Twitch streams to the pause screen during the final boss fight, cutscenes, credits and after-credits cutscene. Speaking with XBLA Fans, a representative for the company explained that it wants to "give players a pure and un-spoiled experience," so it "chose to disable the native capture so that video sharing during those segments was limited."

This got us thinking: how do other ID@Xbox game developers view Twitch streaming? Are they worried about potential gameplay or story segments being ruined for viewers? We asked a few developers if they had official Twitch policies and whether or not they felt streamers were helping their games to find larger audiences. Official stances on Twitch were a bit mixed, but everyone we talked to agreed that streaming could benefit them. One in particular, however, cautioned against giving streaming codes to anyone and everyone and noted that not all games companies need help from streamers.

Of streams and spoilers

Tales from the Borderlands

There is perhaps no ID@Xbox developer more well-known for story-driven experiences than Telltale Games. Unfortunately, the studio that popularized episodic game releases declined to comment directly on the issue. Telltale, however, did partner with The Nerdist to stream the entirety of the first Tales from the Borderlands episode a week ahead of its release last November. It also got together with voice actors Troy Baker and Laura Bailey to stream the second episode a few days after its release late last month. It remains to be seen whether or not Telltale will be so eager to stream the season's surely spoiler-filled final episode in full, but its past actions paint a picture of a studio that does not shy away from streaming spoilers.

Opinion: Xbox One to PC streaming is almost too good to be true

win10

Yes, you read that headline correctly. Your Xbox One games will soon be stream-able to any Windows 10 PC or tablet. If you weren't able to watch the Windows 10 Consumer Preview on Wednesday the 21st, then you missed out. It was a great show, and a lot of cool stuff was revealed for the Windows 10 platform.

The entire time I was watching, I had this feeling that streaming Xbox One games would finally be announced. Just before Phil Spencer — head of Xbox — said the magic words, I tweeted this:
