Twitch streamer Nuts provided her hilarious take on part of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s story as she lost her mind with doing ‘favors’ for Kiera Metz.

CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may have released back in 2015, but it has seen itself become one of the most popular games on both Steam and Twitch in recent weeks.

This sudden shot in the arm of popularity follows the release of Netflix’s live-action take on the popular franchise, giving people who may not have had an interest in the game in the past a chance to actually see what all the hype is about. As such, many players have enjoyed the critically acclaimed third game but others, like Nuts, have found hilarious issues with its plot and storylines.

The Witcher 3 might be five years old but Netflix has helped breathe new life into the series.

During her January 3 stream, the Norwegian streamer was locked into a few quests centering on Kiera Metz – one of the game’s many side characters – when she took issue with what she was being asked to do.

“Why am I cucked? Every single time, I’m cucked.” Nuts yelled while also slamming her desk. “Why does she keep asking me to do favors? I’m here hoping for some like nice times spent together. I’m hoping for us to bond, for you to become my friend, to stay with me and she just keeps asking me to do things every single time!”

The streamer wasn’t finished with her hilarious rant there though. “She keeps asking me to do stuff for her and I’m like a fricking lap dog,” Nuts added. “She hasn’t given me any money yet, she hasn’t given me any herbs, she hasn’t given me anything! I just keep doing stuff for her because she’s so hot and I can’t help myself!”

Due to the hilarious nature of the moment, fans quickly created a highlight clip of it and shared it around, prompting the clip to go viral with well over 80,000 views.

Those views might not force the game to give Nuts some progress with wooing Kiera but that comes later down the line anyway – provided you run all her errands first.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
