Popular Twitch streamer Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo saw his hardcore Minecraft challenge once again end in disaster as a creeper snuck up on him and ruined the whole thing.

Despite Minecraft being almost a decade old, content creators continue to flock to the game. YouTubers and streamers alike are either playing with viewers and friends on a private server or trying to beat the game’s most challenging enemies in single-player.


The challenges get ramped up when you use Minecraft’s hardcore mode as the saves come to a close once you end up dying. 

Mizkif, however, took things up another notch by putting money on the line – giving his viewers a chance to profit off his misfortune.

Minecraft offers a seemingly endless expansion of the pixelated universe.

During his July 5 stream, the popular variety streamer had another attempt at completing the hardcore Minecraft run-through when a creeper snuck up behind him because he hadn’t properly lit a cave entrance. 

Mizkif turned his back as the explosive monster could briefly be seen lurking in the background. It quickly jumped behind Mizkif and took him out – leaving the streamer to scream “no way” as he threw his headphones to the ground and ran off-camera. 

He could only look on in disappointment as the game over screen continued to remind him that his challenge had gone up in smoke yet again.


Some of Mizkif’s viewers tried to point out that he’d actually seen the creeper before turning his back to it, however, he wasn’t so sure.

“Dude, this went so fast, how’d you see this? It’s literally that,” he asked, rewatching the clip moments as the creeper appeared for a split second.

Obviously, losing a hardcore Minecraft run through is annoying at the best of times, but to do so when you’ve made the progress that Miz had is even more frustrating.


He’ll just have to get back in the saddle and go again. Maybe next time, he’ll be able to spot the danger before it happens.

A Pokemon GO player’s livestream was interrupted when a mugger robbed them in front of viewers. The Trainer’s phone and car were stolen during the broadcast.

Pokemon GO took the world by storm in 2016, as players from all over ventured outside of their homes to catch their favorite monsters. The mobile title developed by Niantic brought the beloved Nintendo RPG to real life for millions.


Unfortunately, because the game takes place in the real world, unexpected things can happen – from fans assaulting each other over Gyms, to even murder. On October 8, a streamer’s broadcast quickly turned violent after they were mugged, much to the horror of their audience.

Pokemon GO player robbed live on stream

Pokemon GO streamer Anthony ‘xDeezzNutzx’ was broadcasting live on October 8 when his Twitch stream was abruptly brought to a halt. The player was trying to catch a Croagunk when a stranger attacked him.


While there is no video of the incident, viewers tuning it could hear the audio of the terrifying moment. “Whoa dude, I’m live! I’m live! I don’t got nothing. I don’t have anything!” the 23-year old told the assailant.

The thief can be heard telling the Pokemon fan “The f**k wrong with you?!” after they tried to resist the theft. The GO stream then cut off after the criminal stole the player’s phone.


The thieves could be heard talking on the stream after multiple attempts to unlock the victim’s phone. “We got to get up through here really quick. Come on. We got his vape, his car keys, let’s get the whip, right,” they said.

It wasn’t long before the criminals realized that the phone was still broadcasting live. “He was going live? Why does he got so many goddamn portable chargers?” they said, before taking off with the stolen items.


According to Reddit, a police investigation is now underway. At the time of writing, the individuals have not yet been found or arrested. Based on the audio, it appears that the streamer was mugged by four individuals.

This story is sadly another example of how unpredictable the real world can actually be. And unfortunately, that means even players trying to enjoy Pokemon GO outside can sometimes get caught up in some scary situations.
