Streamer Michael “shroud” Grzesiek was one of many trying out new survival game ‘SCUM’ on Twitch recently, but he wasn’t convinced of the game’s potential in the long run.

SCUM peaked on Twitch at over 200,000 viewers, as some of the most popular streamers on the platform gave it a shot.

At one point, it was the second most viewed game on the platform, only bettered by Fortnite. Devolver Digital also reported that it was its biggest launch ever, reaching top 10 on steam charts after being released on Steam in early access on August 29.

Shroud was one of the leading channels, attracting over 40,000 concurrent viewers to watch, but despite this early interest, he isn’t entirely convinced that SCUM will succeed where other games have failed.

Comparing it to Bohemia’s ‘DayZ’, shroud thinks that SCUM will also die down in popularity, considering how much more fine tuned DayZ is and yet cannot retain it’s once massive player base.

“Games like this aren’t easy to make. Like, if DayZ struggled to pull it off, do you think this company will be able to pull it off? It’s going to take them a couple years. Right now, all this is, is what DayZ was two years ago.

Now, DayZ is at a state where you get 300 frames [per second] and go ‘oh’, and the gun play is really good, like DayZ is in a really good state finally. But all [SCUM] is, is kind of like a restart of DayZ.”

The developers of SCUM, Gamepires, and publisher Devolver Digital can at least be encouraged by the fact that a number of top streamers picked up on the game, and viewers seemed to enjoy watching it.

In the current games market, dominated by Fortnite and other battle royales, the significance of getting good stream exposure on Twitch especially, cannot be understated.

But Shroud is in a unique position to comment on the potential success of such games, as one of the most popular streamers in the world and former professional player, he likely has a keen eye for what gamers want and expect.

Model, DJ, and internet star Charly Jordan recently confirmed her romance with TikToker Tayler Holder — but that isn’t stopping fans from spreading rumors to the contrary, leading Jordan to hit back at the speculation in a pointed Instagram story.

Charly Jordan and Tayler Holder officially revealed their relationship to the world in a spicy Instagram post on October 13, not too long after Holder and Instagram model Sommer Ray appeared to part ways.

Although there is clearly some bad blood between Sommer and Charly — with Sommer throwing some not-so-subtle shade toward her ex-bestie during a paparazzi interview — it’s quite clear that Charly and Tayler are currently an item. Of course, that isn’t stopping fans from spreading rumors and discussing her past flings.

Charly hit back at these fans in a series of pointed Instagram Stories on October 22, calling out commenters for discussing completely illegitimate claims about her love life and other relationship drama.

“I feel like a crazy person sometimes, when I’m looking through comments and it’s all relationship drama comments,” she began. “And it’s all these people talking about and commenting stuff that is completely inaccurate and having full conversations about it.”

“Y’all are just wasting your day, everyone else’s day!” she continued. “Let’s talk about something that matters, you know? Or, if people just did like, any research… like, I love you guys so much, for real. …but the internet, in general, the shit people comment, I’m just like, we are smarter than this!”

That’s not all; Jordan even debunked speculation from paparazzi that she is expecting a baby, completely shutting down the rumors by poking fun at such wild claims about her personal life.

“Not only did they spell both of our names wrong, which we’re not even going to talk about, but apparently, I’m expecting a baby and didn’t even know it!”

While it seems that rumors come with the package of celebrity status, it’s clear that Charly isn’t having any of it, and is trying to stay out of the drama as best she can while fighting back at gossip culture, as a whole.
