Mixer star Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek gave a hilarious explanation to his chat as to why he won’t be playing the newly released Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order anytime soon.

After much anticipation, the new Star Wars game ‘Fallen Order’ is finally here, as it released on November 15 to positive critical reception. The game takes place after the 2005 film Revenge of the Sith.

The single-player action-adventure developed by Respawn Entertainment centers around protagonist Cal Kestis, who discovers that he is force sensitive, and is now being chased down by the Empire.

Despite the game’s praise and hype, popular streaming star shroud says he’s in no rush to play the Star Wars title, and revealed to his audience that his addiction to something else has his attention elsewhere.

Shroud’s not in a rush to play Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

During his November 15 stream, the former CSGO pro was asked by his chat whether he would be playing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. “I want to play Star Wars, but at the same time… Bro, I want to play Tarkov, it’s weird,” he replied.

The streamer then exclaimed, “Watching Stars Wars, I’m like “yeah, this looks cool and all” but in my mind I’m thinking I want some Tarkov! That’s what I’m saying, f*ck. I wish Tarkov wasn’t this fun, or else I would be jumping into other games!” he said, revealing his addiction for popular FPS Escape from Tarkov.

The Mixer star clarified that he does want to eventually play the new Star Wars game, but not yet. “I want to play Star Wars. It does look really good, it look very interesting, pretty fun. I do want to play, but the fact that this boy is a single-player, I feel like it can wait a little bit longer,” he said.

Responding further his to chat, he reiterated, “[The] game does look great, though. It’s like a Star Wars Dark Souls is what it looks like. Dark Souls games are kind of boring. But it’s Star Wars so it will make it better.”

After explaining the reasons why he isn’t in a rush to deviate from his love for Tarkov, the popular streamer then joked with his audience “Let the Tarkov be with you,” echoing the iconic line from Star Wars, which got a bunch of laughs from his chat.

Shroud recently left Twitch to their competitor Mixer at the beginning of October, and just broke over 800,000 subscribers on the Microsoft streaming platform. Only time will tell when his love for Tarkov will wane enough to check out another game.

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
