Watch Someone Try To Play ‘Super Smash Bros.’ On A Twitch-Controlled Couch
February 14, 2016 - Super Smash Bros
‘Twitch Plays Pokemon‘ was a gaming materialisation distinct anything else before it. It took a diversion that millions on million of fans have already played and presented it in an wholly new light. It incited a single-player RPG from 20 years ago into a village eventuality – and, somehow, thousands of people personification concurrently managed to finish a game.
Since then, Twitch Plays has developed in a series of opposite ways. More Pokemon games were beaten, Dark Souls was cowed and a goldfish once took over for a chat. If anything, a several Twitch Plays have proven that gamers wish to play together…especially if a prerogative is something value fighting for.
For example, renouned Twitch pennon Jericho recently competed in Totino’s ‘Bucking Couch Bowl’: instead of simply personification Super Smash Bros. on a unchanging couch, Jericho’s chair was built on tip of a automatic bull. That sounds dangerous adequate on a own, though when control of a longhorn was given to a Twitch chat…well, it went about as good as you’d expect.
Spoiler alert: Jericho gets annihilated. Getting tossed off a automatic longhorn is tough on a own, and doing it with a face full of pizza rolls substantially doesn’t assistance much.
At a really least, Jericho’s corporeal mistreat was a large hit: a Totinos deputy told GameSpot that a tide brought in some-more than 310,000 viewers, while roughly 167,000 commands were sent to a automatic couch. Sadly, Jericho didn’t finish adult winning a eventuality (the prize went to Twitch pennon summit1G), though who knows – maybe a Bucking Couch Bowl will make a lapse in 2017…
