While popular Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was initially impressed with Gearbox Software’s latest game Borderlands 3, the former CSGO pro explained why the looter shooter is not very enjoyable during his September 18 stream.

Gearbox Software’s Borderlands 3 released on September 13, and it quickly became a hit on Twitch and has consistently been in the top ten most watched categories on the streaming platform since it’s debut.

Twitch star shroud was initially impressed with the game as it passed his ‘true test’, but now that he’s hours into the popular shooter, his feelings have cooled down a bit – as he explained to his audience during his stream on September 18.

Shroud is not really liking Borderlands 3 so far

Shroud was hours into the game as him and his co-op partner made their way to Athenas – the third major planet in the looter shooter – when a fan asked in chat whether he was enjoying the game so far.

“Is shroud liking the game so far?” he read the comment from his chat, and then replied “Ehhh. Not really, to be honest. I’m just trying to give it an extra shot.”

During the broadcast, his co-op partner asked him if he would rather play something else. “If you want to switch to a different game, I wouldn’t be upset,” she said, which sent the Twitch star into laughter.

“You’re basically saying I want to play Rainbow Six Siege,” he said, which got her to admit “I’m basically saying that I, uh, will keep playing this. But it’s just not that fun.”

Shroud agreed with her assessment and said, “Yeah, it’s really not…”

Disappointed in “how sh*tty” the game runs

Many fans were outraged at the performance issues on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, and based on shroud’s experiences the issues haven’t entirely escaped PC either. “I would say the only real problem with this game is how shitty it runs.”

The former CSGO pro then explained how he had to lower his in game settings to get the kind of performance he wanted, and that he found it disappointing.

“I have to run this game at all very low. And I’m still barely pulling 120fps. It’s kind of disappointing!” he said.

It’s hard to say whether shroud will see his playthrough of the looter shooter until the end, as he continued to broadcast it for a couple of hours after making the statements about not enjoying the game.

But either way, he continues to be one of the top streamers on Twitch, with over 6.9 million followers as of the time of this article.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
