Tracy  Lauren ‘Ice-T’ Marrow is a voracious gamer who never shies away from sharing his opinion. Tackling the follow up to 2016’s reboot of DOOM, the popular rapper addressed one key aspect of DOOM Eternal he just can’t stand.

Always sharing his gameplay experiences through social media, Ice-T has become a popular figure for some of the hottest gaming takes on the internet. While he’s been involved in a number of passion projects in the industry, even voicing Balex in Borderlands 3, he’s never afraid to criticize a game.

Jumping into DOOM Eternal just days after its March 19 release date, the rapper seemed mostly satisfied. There was one element of the vintage FPS franchise in particular, however, that the rapper said he absolutely “hates.”

Refining the fundamentals of their 2016 reboot, the developers at id Software seemingly knocked it out of the park once again as Eternal launched to much fanfare and critical acclaim. Fans of the series especially have loved it so far.

While the gameplay pays homage to the 1993 classic, harkening back to raw FPS mechanics and movement, not everyone is on board with the old school feel. In particular, Ice-T pinpointed “jumping” in DOOM Eternal as his least favorite feature.

“DOOM Eternal, I’m enjoying the game…BUT! I HATE all the f**king jumping,” he explained in a March 21 tweet. “I had that get that out.”

The fast-paced action and relentless enemies ensure that players are always on the move in DOOM Eternal. Pushing through hordes of demons is intertwined with segments of gameplay focused entirely on traversal and exploration. 

As Ice-T explained before jumping into his second sit down with the game, players just “can’t stand still. It’s virtual cardio.”

Although the rapper might be somewhat miffed about the jumping mechanics in DOOM Eternal, that appears to be his only major gripe for the time being. In fact, he’s already jumped back into the title to see things through to the end.

For fans of the rapper hoping they might be able to tune into Ice-T’s gameplay sessions in the near future, however, things might not pan out that way. He recently outlined how he uses gaming as an escape.

“I kinda play games to be alone. Streaming is kinda the opposite of that,” he said, damning any hopes of a Twitch stream. While livestreams might not be an option, fans can still keep up with his thoughts through his spicy hot takes on Twitter.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
