We Have a Beam Pro Channel! February 27, 2017

We’ve got some big news to announce for the site today, we have created an all new game streaming channel on Beam.Pro!

We’ve been having constant technical issues streaming Xbox One games on Twitch.TV for almost a year and because of that we have been playing PS4 games exclusively in that time. For right now, we will use Beam exclusively to stream games on the Xbox One, and will continue to use Twitch for PS4 game streams.  This shouldn’t be an issue as we still plan to archive all of our game streams on our YouTube Channel after they’ve concluded.

This is exciting news as we have stockpiled a backlog of Xbox One games over the past year we would like to stream. There is no shortage of great Xbox One and Xbox 360 games including Quantum Break, Halo 5: Guardians and Alan Wake.

You may also notice we’ve posted a direct link to our Beam Channel on the site’s sidebar. Feel free to use it all you’d like.

Special thanks to Wynter for helping us out with the Beam service and answering some of our questions while we were doing test streams!

Here Are All of the Pokemon Day Festivities Today February 27, 2017

Big news for Pokémon Trainers across the internet, today is the 21st birthday of the original release of Pokémon!  This is an epic anniversary deserving of major recognition.  To celebrate, The Pokémon Company is doing lots of great events across the web, and we are going to tell you all about it!

First off, the official Pokemon Website and the Pokémon TV app are going to offer several movies like Pokémon: The First Movie, Pokémon 4Ever, and Pokémon: Zorark Master of Illusions for free streaming today.  We checked the app as of the time we are writing this article and the movies aren’t up on the Pokémon TV app just yet but we are sure they will be added soon.

Second, users of the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online will get some exclusive goodies.  We reported earlier in the week that GameStop in the US is also doing a TCG Online promotion  where they will give an exclusive online code for any player who buys over $11.99 US in TCG merchandise.  While you’re there, don’t forget to ask for a free bottle cap code that can be used in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon!  That promotion will continue until March 5th.

However, anyone who plays Pokémon Trading Card Game Online will get some all-new exclusive goodies just for logging in today!  Make sure to do that!

Pokémon Go players will be able to find Pikachus wearing festive party hats starting today. Once caught, the Pikachu will keep its party hat forever but you’ll only be able to find them in the wild until March 6th!

Finally, Twitch is hosting an all-day live stream of all things Pokémon today!  It hasn’t begun just yet but when it does you can watch the feed at twitch.tv/pokemon.  You don’t need a Twitch Channel to watch the event but if you have a Twitch account, you can always subscribe to the Pokémon Channel to get notified on when today’s stream starts.

UPDATE: The stream has begun.

If you don’t have the Pokémon TV app it can be downloaded for free on your Android or iOS-powered smart device.  The Pokémon Trading Card Game Online can be played by anyone with a PC, Mac, iPad or Android Tablet which meets the game’s minimum system requirements.

If you feel like you missed anything, check out this website for all the official details!  Happy Pokémon Day, Trainers!
