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.
