Join us at 8:30 pm ET today for live-streamed games ahead of E3 madness

our official Twitch channel  (Thursday, June 7) at 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT to watch me play games and join me in the chat room.

If you missed last week’s premiere, the show concept sees us picking out modern games, anywhere between a week and a couple of years old, that we might otherwise have skipped for the sake of an article (or have substantially changed since launching).

While we strive to dedicate time to playing, reviewing, and writing about games that our readers care about, some games in the modern software deluge fall through the cracks, including ones we love and ones we don’t.

Thus, we’re testing Twitch as a compromise: you can see us play and talk about “spillover” games during a live feed, and ask questions while one of us is live on a mic, or you can come back later for an archived video and a brief text summary of what we thought.

This week, Ars Frontlog will focus on three primarily 2D games from the past month or so.  ($19.99, Win) is the first early access game from Graybeard Studios, founded by co-creator David Brevik, and it combines the craft-and-survive mechanics of with -like looting and dungeoneering.  ($19.99, Win/Mac/Linux, Switch, PS4, XB1) is a surprisingly solid spin on , with a swashbuckling fox adventuring through worlds whose seasons can change at the press of a button. And  ($19.99, Win, Switch, PS4, XB1) is… a beat-’em-up starring former basketball great Shaquille O’Neal. (What, that’s not descriptive enough?)

We’ll update this article with a link to the archived video and some text after the episode has aired. And we’re continuing to listen to your feedback and thoughts as we look into a more formalized schedule for Twitch content. We’ll likely skip a broadcast next week due to our collective gaming trust heading to LA to live at E3, so, come check this week’s stream out if you’re free.
