After watching a brand new trailer for PlanetSide Arena during one of his streams, DrDisrespect seems very impressed by the new multiplayer game which is set to launch in 2019. 

The new multiplayer sci-fi shooter is developed by the Daybreak Game Company and after The Doc caught eye of the game during his Twitch livestream, he made his feelings known to his audience.

“I like what I see. You know what I see right there ladies and gentlemen? There are two things I see there,” said DrDisRespect. “I see skill. I see skill of the game – one thousand players per match – that’s skill. On a large ass map – skill.”

“Number two, which I think is very important, I see tonnes of content. Lots and lots and lots of content. It has a Halo feel to it, a Halo feel and look to it for sure. Now, those are my pros. Skill and content. It’s flooding my screen, flooding my eyes and I love to see it,” he added.

Daybreak are best known for H1Z1, and its battle royale mode ‘King of the Kill’ was once the most popular BR game on the market, before being overshadowed by PUBG and later Fortnite.

Players will drop into the war-torn landscape of Auraxis and will all fight to become the champion of the large arena. As DrDisRespect eluded to, games can reach up to one thousand players in a session of battle royale, which means players are going to have to pull out all the stops to survive.

The game is set to be made available on Steam on January 29 of next year and many people have touted it as yet another rival to Fortnite, PUBG and other battle royale titles, given the game’s massive multiplayer arena. Whether or not it will compete remains to be seen.


TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
