Ahead of their boxing match on August 25, Deji, younger brother of KSI, showed up to the training gym of his opponent Jake Paul, and was immediately slapped as the pair came face to face.

Jake, younger brother of Logan Paul, is the main undercard for the KSI vs Logan bout, fighting Deji (a.k.a ComedyShortsGamer), and the tension between the two seems to be increasingly real.

Initially, speculation was that animosity between the two was somewhat manufactured, invented to stir up anticipation for the fight, selling more tickets and pay-per-view.

But, Jake Paul seems to genuinely dislike Deji, if his recent actions are anything to go by. Deji posted the following clip on Twitter, showing Jake Paul take a ‘cheap shot’, slapping him.

It seemed to be an entirely unmotivated attack, with Jake seemingly surprised by Deji’s appearance, and instantly wanted to skip any talking and get to the point.

Jake tweeted about the incident, saying Deji had turned up unannounced and to “talk shit”, so Jake slapped him and a video would be coming soon.

Deji responded, writing “You had to cheap shot me, you hit like a bitch.”

Another angle, from a camera in the crowd’s perspective, shows Jake slap Deji unexpectedly, prompting his opponent to lash out in retaliation, but the entourage from both sides quickly stepped in.

Logan Paul also reacted to the slap on social media, unsurprisingly backing his younger brother for “slapping the shit out of [Deji]”.

Regardless of how Deji feels about the cheap shot, it is a stunt that will only heighten the anticipation for an already long awaited fight on August 25.

The main event is of course the older brothers, KSI vs Logan, but Deji and Jake Paul are big names on YouTube in their own right, and fans will be equally intrigued to see who comes out on top in that one too.

You can watch the fight live on the official KSI vs Logan Paul YouTube channel, but it is a pay-per-view live event, costing £7.50 to purchase access. It takes place at the Manchester Arena, UK, and is expected to pull in a sell out crowd.

Twitch streamer blows $5k on Genshin Impact: “It’s a learning experience”

A Twitch streamer that spent thousands of dollars in free-to-play gacha game Genshin Impact has revealed that he now regrets the amount of money he spent on the endeavor, calling it a “mistake.”

Since its late September launch, miHoYo’s open world anime style game Genshin Impact has swept the internet, with millions of people downloading the game and exploring the stunning landscape without having to spend a single penny.

However, Genshin Impact and games like it make their money via the means of a ‘gacha’ mechanic, which relies on random pulls to obtain rare characters and collectible items.

While each player is given a certain amount of chances, or ‘wishes’ as they’re referred to in the game, to secure their favorite character, the odds of getting somebody you really want is incredibly slim. This leads to people spending real world money to increase their chances of in game loot and characters.

The action RPG has a massive open world with lots to see and do.

That’s just what streamer Lacari did, in one particularly expensive haul spending over $2000 to obtain the highly desired character Kequing.

Ask the total amount of money spent racked up he still had not achieved the result he wanted, but with one final plea to the heavens he eventually got the character he wanted.

However, it seems that since that stream, Lacari has had a certain amount of regret regarding just how much money he spent on the gacha game.

“The game, it’s a learning experience. I learned” he explain. “If I charge back that’s not gonna teach me anything. When you commit to something you commit, you know what I mean?”

Lacari went on to say that “the money I spent is my mistake. And it is gonna be with me for the rest of my life. It is gonna be with me for the rest of my life that I spent $5000 on this f**king game. Regardless of if people quit it next week, or tomorrow.”

“This is my mark of f**king shame dude, and I will bear that sh*t, and I will not spend another f**king dollar on games like this. We’re done. We’re free-to-play forever from now on.”

While it seems that the regret has not put him off playing the game altogether, it certainly seems to have put a damper on his views of the game’s divisive gacha mechanic.
