Dr Disrespect sick of “wasting time” streaming on Twitch

PUBG, Fortnite Battle Royale, and even Battalion 1944 during his June 4 stream. 

However, even after playing a variety of shooter titles, the ‘Two-Time’ seems completely exhausted by the current options available for him to play. 

Square EnixDr Disrespect never lasted long streaming Battalion 1944, a game that’s surging in popularity on Twitch.

At one point in the livestream, one of his fans pleaded him to not stop streaming because they would have to watch streamers Ninja and xQc instead, which forced Dr Disrespect to break out a smile. Yet, in general, he seemed very downbeat about the games that he’s been playing. 

“I feel like I’m wasting my time playing these shithole games that are out. Where’s the new stuff man?” he said in a somber voice. “Holy crap, my brain is about to melt from the non-creative, pathetic approach to game design that is out there right now.”

After speaking in a low voice for a few moments, clearly frustrated, he screamed: “Nothing to get excited about! Nothing!” 

This isn’t the first time that the Doc has challenged video game developers to create something new and fresh for him to stream on Twitch, either. In fact, he’s been very critical of developers in the last few months – slamming Epic Games and even suggesting that he could help put together a better game. 

Dr Disrespect even took his frustrations to Twitter, where he said he’s hoping that developers deliver some big news at E3 2019 for the most highly anticipated games, describing his current gaming situation as a “god damn snooze fest.” 

Nevertheless, with such a committed fanbase tuning in to see him stream video games on a regular basis, it’s highly unlikely that his violence, speed, and momentum will cease in the near future, especially with the arrival of Halo’s Master Chief Collection arriving on PC in the near future.

Twitch bot finds PS5s and Xbox Series Xs in-stock so you don’t have to

A popular new Twitch bot is doing all the legwork to help gamers find out what stores have PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles in stock.

Gamers have been hard-pressed to find a next-gen console for themselves or loved ones as the Christmas season approaches. It seems like almost everywhere is sold out, leaving only scalpers who have been selling units for insane markups.

Now, a new Twitch bot has entered the fray and is helping anyone who can’t keep up with the constant refreshing know when they can get their hands on Sony or Microsoft’s new console.

Viewers can simply go to the Twitch channel and watch live as the bot searches through various sites to find inventory. The bot will actively check through Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, and more and state whether they’re out of stock or have consoles in.

As a nice little bonus, the channel even says when the last “drop” was. At the time of publishing, the last store to get both consoles in stock was Walmart at 9:30 PM EST on November 25.

Users can also use the !local command to check any store stock near them.

According to Polygon, the channel is run by Cam Ritz and uses a program called streetmerchant that does the monitoring.

The program’s features page state that it “scrapes multiple websites for patterns of being stocked via API and Chromium.”

Ritz claims that so far, the bot has helped viewers actually find consoles – with a few nabbing Series Xs from GameStop and Sam’s Club.

Unfortunately, for most viewers, watching the stream will result in a near-endless red wave of OUT OF STOCK notifications, further cementing just how difficult it is to find a console this year.

As the days continue and the Christmas season approaches, keeping this channel open may be a great tool if you’re actively still looking for a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Or for those who have managed to already snag a console, it can serve as a reminder of just how difficult it can be.
