Massively popular YouTube stars “SSSniperWolf” and Lilly Singh teamed up for a humorous take on dating simulator games, with Singh starring as the protagonist looking for love.

With SSSniperWolf being one of the platform’s top gaming creators, it comes as little surprise that Singh chose her for her latest collaboration, who “guided” Lily through the game as if she were streaming the title for her audience.

Tasked with a timed mission called “Ratchet Cinderella,” SSSniperWolf’s main objective for the game was helping Lilly “Get Laid” — which included several tasks like picking the right “skin” and correct items for her “inventory.”

SSSniperWolf, InstagramOne of Britain’s top gaming content creators teamed up with YouTuber Lilly Singh for a humorous take on dating simulators.

The video even poked fun at popular gaming tropes, after SSSniperWolf found the “perfect” skin behind a $5,000 paywall — which was labeled “Courtesy of EA” in reference to the company’s infamous Star Wars: Battlefront II DLC scandal.

Lilly’s collab also included a joke about Dark Souls and Cuphead’s famous difficulty levels, which she compared to her own “game” as a good-humored prod toward gaming publications’ trope-worthy praise of the titles.

Of course, Lilly’s journey was fraught with glitches, and even saw an awkward “battle of the exes” — and although she ended up failing the “mission,” behind the scenes footage of their collaboration shows a happy (and hilarious) ending to the shenanigans.

During this extra vlog, SSSniperWolf attempted to educate Singh on the world of gaming, which included more than a few humorous moments where Singh asked “What the heck is a CoD?” and “What the hell is Final Fantasy?” when the titles were brought up in conversation.

Although Singh might not be a gaming aficionado, her third collaboration of the holiday season went off without a hitch in wake of her late night show “A Little Late With Lilly Singh,” which has been met with mixed reviews from critics for such issues as “overused” jokes and forced laugh tracks.

For now, it looks like Singh is preparing for her fourth collaborative video — although good luck in the video game sphere may not be in her future.

Daequan’s first tweet after 6-month hiatus sparks hope for Twitch return

Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco has broken his six-month social media silence in time for Thanksgiving. While the tweet was short and sweet, it has given fans of the former TSM Fortnite star hope for a potential return to Twitch.

Daequan has practically disappeared from the public eye in 2020. He vowed that he’d try to return to Twitch by January 2020 after taking time off to focus on his health, but hasn’t made an appearance on the platform since December 2019.

On top of that, he’s gone quiet on socials, not posting anything since March. While he has moved in with long-time friend and former duo Hamlinz in the meantime, there wasn’t any indication he was coming back to streaming.

However, Daequan has finally broken his silence to give thanks to his fans on Thanksgiving, and tell everyone that he is getting along just fine.

“Feeling better than I have in years. Always thankful,” the short message red, with a selfie of the streamer.

The tweet has gone viral, with over 100,000 fans liking the tweet, and many of his contemporaries sending him messages of support, including TimtheTatman, NICKMERCS, and Classify.

Daequan’s eight-word return has also managed to spark hope in his fanbase of a potential return to streaming. No matter whether it’s Fortnite, or a new game that’s come out in his absence like Valorant, Daequan’s fans are itching to see him back on the platform.

There is potential for a return. Hamlinz has been a bit more active on social media, and Tfue even tried to get him to turn on the stream ⁠— even if just for a day.

No matter what though, Daequan is taking things at his own pace. He’s still on that journey to better health, and will return in his own time when he believes it’s right.

Fans of Daequan will be hoping it’s not another six months until we hear from the TSM Fortnite star again, but only time will tell if he actually commits to returning to streaming.
