    Looks like Spiral Game Studios... Sorry, Trek Industries is in some hot water once again. This time, Activision is going after the studio with a DMCA takedown request. Activision says that Spiral's latest game, The Orion Project (AKA: Orion), uses stolen assets from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

    As such, it seems as though the game has been pulled from Steam until this is resolved. That is, at least, what Spiral is telling the public.

    Rich Get Richer - Twitch Adds Microtransactions to Partner Chat

    Starting today, Twitch is rolling out a test of its new microtransaction system that they call Cheering. Cheering allows the chat in partnered streams to "cheer" for a favorite moment during a stream. Cheering allows the chat to donate any number of Cheer Bits to the streamer.

    These bits equate to a monetary donation made for the streamer in lieu (or in addition to) the usual support of subscribing or donating directly.

    What are some of the benefits of Cheering?
