Popular Twitch personality Mizkif exploded in rage after his attempt to conquer Jump King’s latest DLC ‘Ghost of the Babe’ quickly went south at the very end of the game.

The notoriously punishing Jump King is back with its third chapter Ghost of the Babe having released on December 13, and has again taken Twitch by storm as streamers continue to put themselves through pain and misery.

During his December 15 broadcast, streaming star Mizkif lost it when his attempt at the jumping simulator fell apart at the final stretch of the game, as the difficult title claimed yet another personality.

Nexile GamesThe popular jumping game is brutally punishing.

The popular streamer has a history with Jump King, even finally beating the notoriously difficult game back in May. However, he was making his newest attempt at beating the newly released DLC during a recent broadcast.

Mizkif carefully made his way to the very top, as his friend who was watching gasped at every jump because he had reached the final stretch of the game. “This is the end” he said triumphantly, before things went downhill – literally.

A misplaced jump sent the Twitch personality falling down, and he flew into a rage, screaming at the top of his lungs as his character continued to sink to the bottom. “Oh my God, no!” he shrieked, as he put both of his hands on his head.

Determined to not give up, the Twitch personality pushed on through to make his way back to where he failed. However, as he continued to struggle to progress once his chat began to taunt him.

Responding, he said, “To anyone saying making the same mistakes over and over, you are making the same mistake every day by coming to this stream!”

Mizkif finally made his way back to the spot he originally fell down at, and managed to fall in the exact same way as before. This time, instead of screaming, he pounded his fist on his desk in frustration.

Despite the game’s brutally punishing game mechanics, the jumping title exploded in popularity back in May when it first released, as it became a favorite among Twitch streamers.

Now that the game’s latest DLC has dropped, personalities are torturing themselves again to reach the top, and it’s endlessly entertaining to watch.

Fans of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast have been left frustrated after episode #1572 with Moxie Marlinspike was uploaded exclusively to Spotify, with many feeling “cheated” by the apparent business move.

Joe Rogan has become one of the most popular podcasters on YouTube, with his channel accumulating over 965,000,000 views and 10 million subscribers since its launch in 2009.

Rogan has become well known both on the internet and in celebrity spheres, and has hosted a wide variety of superstar guests, such as the likes of Kanye West and Elon Musk.

Many huge stars have graced Joe Rogan’s podcast studio, including Kanye West.

However, many grew concerned back in May after he announced that the podcast would be making a move exclusively over to Spotify. Up until now, episodes have been accessible in full along with highlights on the Joe Rogan Experience YouTube channel.

But as of December 2, full episodes of the podcast are exclusively available on Spotify. In highlight clips from recent episodes that have been uploaded to YouTube, the description reads “this clip is taken from the Joe Rogan Experience #1572 with Moxie Marlinspike – Now exclusively on Spotify.”

In the comment section of the YouTube clip, fans released their frustration towards the exclusive move. “It’s been a hell of a ride guys. See ya,” one viewer said. One fan said “bye” to the podcast with their comment “This feels like a break-up, and I feel cheated, for a richer guy. Bye JRE.”

Another disappointed viewer revealed that while they tried listening to the show on Spotify, they couldn’t handle the “ten straight minutes of ads” and said they would not be paying for a premium account just to listen to one podcast.

Rogan has previously spoken about his good relationship with Spotify after they were criticized for alleged censorship in October. In episode 1544 Rogan called them “a great company,” saying “they’re open-minded, they treat their employees very well,” and stressed that “in terms of then silencing me, zero. There’s been nothing.”

The move over to Spotify has certainly brought about some dissatisfaction among fans of the show, though precisely how much impact this will have on his audience numbers remains to be seen.
