Another year, another E3 show with a good helping of awkward, cringy and hilarious moments, and thankfully YouTuber PewDiePie is back once again to give us the full round-up.

PewDiePie’s ‘Awkward and Cringy Moments’ video from the 2017 E3 convention is one of his best, creeping up on almost 10 million views, so it is no wonder he is back for part two following E3 2018.

And E3 did not disappoint this year, with plenty cringeworthy moments inducing a sharp intake of breath, as well as some downright funny highlights.

At this point, it wouldn’t be a proper E3 without some awkward technical issues, presenters forgetting their lines and game developers just being, well, game developers.

It is an expected outcome when trying to turn these devs into showbiz stars and presenters, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable to rewatch and cringe all over again.

“E3 – a moment of excitement, a moment of hype, every year. What games are they going to announce? What trailer, what new footage are they going to show us?

That’s what moron would say, a man of true culture, true intellect only cares about, that’s right – cringe compilation everybody.”

Perhaps the most infamous from this year’s event was the unfortunate moment a teleprompter died during the Bethesda conference, leaving the two developers stumped for words on stage for what felt like an eternity.

And there was the poorly executed attempts at getting the rather unenthused audiences to cheer loudly, or the very over the top game introductions.

PewDiePie gave his own verdict on the show, with special attention to each major publisher’s conference.

Some of his favorite moments of course being the extremely hyped up music performance by Andrew WK ahead of the RAGE 2 reveal by Bethesda, and the rather odd flute player during Sony’s preview of Ghost of Tsushima.

Jinny banned from Twitch again for reckless driving

Twitch star Jinny has revealed that the streaming platform will be banning her after she drove quite recklessly on a scooter while visiting Germany.

The popular IRL streamer explained to her viewers that her impromptu decision to ride a scooter without very much experience was a bad idea.

“I got banned. Not yet, but I will get banned because of scooter,” she said. “Because I don’t have a driver’s license, I’ve never tried scooter that much. So, I made a lot of mistakes.”

As Jinny further noted, even though she tried to be careful, mistakes were bound to happen. “So, I’m just not going to ride scooter to avoid any mistakes being made.”

In a since-deleted clip, Jinny can be seen riding a scooter while wobbling and appearing to have significant trouble steering.

At one point, the streamer even ran a red light and nearly bumped into other people trying to ride their vehicles.

“It was green! Damn it!” she cursed after crossing the road. “Wasn’t it green?”

How long will Jinny be banned for?

According to the Korean streamer, this ban will last for seven days, because this isn’t the first time Twitch has had to discipline her.

As Dexerto previously reported, Jinny was first banned back in July after playing The Last of Us Part 2 on stream.

During the broadcast, she erroneously referred to the female character, Abby, as a “transgender” which resulted in the platform banning her for a “hateful comment.”

However, Jinny was unbanned a mere eight hours later after making a public apology.

The ban timing is extremely unfortunate as Jinny is in the middle of a trip, so being unable to stream takes some fun out of the experience.

For her part, however, Jinny is taking the ban seriously and accepts that it was her fault. As for when she will be banned, she claimed that it will happen when it’s “morning in NA,” so the ban should be kicking in at some point on October 20.
