There’s been plenty of great games already in 2019, but Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek shared which ones he’s still looking for to the most throughout the rest of the year.

While you can mostly catch Shroud playing various first-person shooters on his stream, he has shown an interest in trying out a variety of other games.

In the past, he has dabbled with games like Last Year: The Nightmare, Jurassic World Evolution and more recently, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Shroud is excited for the new games on the horizon

There are always new games in the pipeline for players to play and Shroud shares the same excitement as everyone else when it comes to new titles.

Some new games on the horizon for the rest of the year include Mortal Kombat 11, Days Gone, Rage 2, Borderlands 3 and many more that just don’t have release dates yet.

In a response to a question that talks about 2019 being a bad year for games, shroud says 2019 has been good and it’s going to keep improving.

“2019 has been a great year for games and it’s only gonna get better in a couple more months as more games come up,” he said. “Games that I’m looking forward to like Borderlands 3, Cyberpunk, the [next Elder Scrolls Online] expansion.”

Shroud shares this excitement with many others

These are all games that many players are undoubtedly excited for. The Borderlands 3 reveal created tons of hype, Cyberpunk 2077 has been anticipated for what feels like years now and The Elder Scrolls Online just keeps getting better with each update that releases.

Gearbox SoftwareBorderlands 3 is one of the most-anticipated games of 2019.

It looks like we can expect Shroud to continue his recent trend of diving into variety streaming while trying out some of the biggest releases that 2019 has in store throughout the next eight months. 

Until these high-profile games finally release, fans will have to be content watching Shroud go through his normal rotation of battle royale games with a sprinkle of RPGs like Elder Scrolls thrown in here and there. 


Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
