Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar couldn’t help but laugh after watching Dr DisRespect’s Splitgate gameplay, ahead of the pair’s Halo 1v1.

The two streamers have a hilarious public feud going, agreeing that when Halo releases on PC they will have a 1v1 match, with the Doc – as always – overtly confident about his abilities. The 1v1 is garnering some serious hype, with Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek sharing his opinion on it.

While streaming on May 25, Summit took a break to evaluate the Doc’s Splitgate: Arena Warfare gameplay, much to his, and his viewers’, amusement.

1047 GamesDoc was playing Splitgate, the new shooter many have been comparing to Halo.

Splitgate: Arena Warfare is a new FPS from 1047 Games, released on May 24. It has drawn a lot of comparisons with the Halo franchise, in both looks and feel. The Doc was streaming it on May 25, and summit checked in just in time to see him struggling, being killed by a player he had just accidentally ignored.

“What happened to those two bullets that just went right through him?” the Doc raged.

After watching the Doc die, summit was reduced to hysterics.  “Out of all the clips to watch,” laughed Lazar. “I can’t believe I came across that one – unless this is happening all the time. He just watched that guy run up and kill him.”

The Doc was unimpressed with the situation, and was even more unimpressed with shroud’s input on the pair’s 1v1, after the ex-CS:GO pro said he didn’t think summit has anything to worry about. In his rebuttal, the Doc says that once he’s “done with the little guy [summit]”, shroud’s next.

While the Doc is on Twitter throwing shade at shroud, summit was clearly having fun watching the Doc struggle.

Lazar has recently experienced a resurgence in popularity, thanks mainly to his GTA V role play streams. However, he is talented in a number of games, and clearly doesn’t seem too concerned about the Doc’s Halo ability, at least if his Splitgate talents are anything to go by.

Twitch bot finds PS5s and Xbox Series Xs in-stock so you don’t have to

A popular new Twitch bot is doing all the legwork to help gamers find out what stores have PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles in stock.

Gamers have been hard-pressed to find a next-gen console for themselves or loved ones as the Christmas season approaches. It seems like almost everywhere is sold out, leaving only scalpers who have been selling units for insane markups.

Now, a new Twitch bot has entered the fray and is helping anyone who can’t keep up with the constant refreshing know when they can get their hands on Sony or Microsoft’s new console.

Viewers can simply go to the Twitch channel and watch live as the bot searches through various sites to find inventory. The bot will actively check through Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, and more and state whether they’re out of stock or have consoles in.

As a nice little bonus, the channel even says when the last “drop” was. At the time of publishing, the last store to get both consoles in stock was Walmart at 9:30 PM EST on November 25.

Users can also use the !local command to check any store stock near them.

According to Polygon, the channel is run by Cam Ritz and uses a program called streetmerchant that does the monitoring.

The program’s features page state that it “scrapes multiple websites for patterns of being stocked via API and Chromium.”

Ritz claims that so far, the bot has helped viewers actually find consoles – with a few nabbing Series Xs from GameStop and Sam’s Club.

Unfortunately, for most viewers, watching the stream will result in a near-endless red wave of OUT OF STOCK notifications, further cementing just how difficult it is to find a console this year.

As the days continue and the Christmas season approaches, keeping this channel open may be a great tool if you’re actively still looking for a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Or for those who have managed to already snag a console, it can serve as a reminder of just how difficult it can be.
