EVE Online players can now use Twitch to stream their gameplay sessions. The streaming service has been integrated into the Neocom panel and proper overlay support and the ability to delay the stream is being looking into, providing the initial launch proves popular. Meanwhile, the EVE Online community has raised $190,890 in PLEX donations for Philippines typhoon relief, after an eight hour livecast featuring members of the EVE development doing odd things such as shaving each other and getting inked. One of CCP’s developers even promised to be shot by a paintball for every $2,000 raised. Ouch. Hit up the links for more information. Thanks: D’toidand Eurogamer.
