Community Hangout: Join Kat on Twitch While She Plays Fire Emblem Fates

Discuss the latest in gaming with the USG staff, get a tour of Fire Emblem, and win a copy of Final Fantasy Explorers at 4pm PT/7pm ET.

We took a break from streaming for a little while, but we're officially back! Each week we'll be hosting a community hangout on our Twitch channel where you can chat with the USG staff, check out new games (and retro games, too), and maybe win some prizes.

This week, I will be streaming the first six missions of Fire Emblem Fates leading up to the big decision between Birthright and Conquest. I'll also show the new customizable cast, and if you'd like, one of the later missions of Conquest. Don't worry, I'll try to keep spoilers to a minimum. I'll also be chatting about this week's events, announcements, and whatever else you want to discuss. Finally, I'll be giving away my pre-played copy of Final Fantasy Explorers to one lucky viewer.

When I'm done, I'll be uploading the stream to our Youtube channel, as usual. In addition to our archived streams, you can find our One Hit Wonder archives, as well as lots of cool history videos. Check it out!

Next wee.: Jeremy tries to beat the Famicom Disc version of the original Legend of Zelda on the occasional of its 30th anniversary. I wish him the best of luck.
