Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One game or two on Twitch for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. Last week, we streamed Sixty Second Shooter Prime and Nutjitsu and dished out codes to 10 lucky viewers.
Tonight at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific), we'll be playing Strider from Capcom! We want you guys there, chatting along. So we're giving out five Xbox One codes for Strider, plus several Playstation 4 and Steam codes!
Update: The stream has ended. Congratulations to tonight's winners! Everyboy who missed the stream, continue reading to see an awesome replay.
Capcom released an arcade game called Strider in 1989. The game impressed with its flashy sword-based combat, wall climbing and no-gravity sections, and huge mechanical bosses. The next year, Capcom created a completely original Strider game for the 8-bit NES. The NES game starred the same character, Strider Hiryu, who later appeared in the Marvel vs. Capcom series.
In 2014, developer Double Helix teamed up with Capcom to make an all-new Strider for Xbox One and 360, as well as other platforms. The new Strider combines elements from the arcade and NES games (plus Strider 2) into a single action-packed Metroidvania-style platformer. With superfast gameplay, wonderful music, and tons of futuristic areas to explore, Strider is a fantastic modern take on the classic series.
We'll be streaming Strider for 90-120 minutes tonight, starting at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific). During that time, we'll be giving out a total of 12 game codes:
- 5 Strider for Xbox One
- 4 Strider for Playstation 4 (US)
- 3 Strider for Steam
To enter, just follow me at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch and tune in during the stream. You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream chat to have a chance at winning. We'll deliver codes to the winners via Twitch message (PM) during the stream. No code begging!
What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Unfortunately you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.
I'll be available for a few minutes before and after the stream if you have any questions or just want to say hi. If you enjoy the stream, I'd love for you to tune in to future streams. For now, we'll do one every weekend, with a few non-contest streams throughout the week.
