Have you ever wanted to show off your killing sprees so badly that you wish you could make your friends watch live? Well now you can thanks to Twitch.tv, the streaming provider Treyarch is working with for Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2. If you’re so good at the game, or have a giant ego, you can subject friends and family to watching you play the game live, even if they’re not in the same room! It’s a brave new day for boasting in video games, but perhaps also for tutorials and guides.
Don’t think you can get away with all the yelling and cursing you might normally scream out while fighting without a live stream, because Treyarch has set some strict ground rules for using the service. If you use foul or racial language, or decide to get naked while streaming, say goodbye to your privileges, because this isn’t Chatroulette. If caught you can have streaming rights revoked on a temporary or permanent basis. Treyarch even claims they will report you to the streaming provider to have your account banned as well. Oops.
All this makes me wonder though, just how many people are going to have to be subjected to a job life of watching people play Black Ops 2 live to check for violations. I hope they allow drinking on the job at Treyarch.
