Playing jump scare video games isn’t for the faint hearted, but makes for quality entertainment on live stream as Summit1G proves after his step dad set him up for a perfectly timed prank.
Outlast 2 is a first person ‘survival-horror’ game, which came out early 2017. It is lauded for being incredibly immersive and frightening in equal measure, with the evil creatures that lurk sneaking up on you at every turn.
Upon release, it took over live streaming website Twitch, with many of the most popular streamers broadcasting the game and viewers almost playing along with them.
It is easy to see why these kind of games make for such good entertainment to watch as well as actually play yourself, and so summit1g decided to give it another go on a recent stream.
Summit1g, real name Jaryd Lazar is in the very upper tiers of Twitch streamers, with over three million followers making him the 5th most followed channel.
As a former CS:GO player, he is known for being a skilled player as well as an entertainer, but nothing can prepare you for the trials of Outlast 2 – and certainly not for your step dad creeping up on you in the dark.
With the lights off, Summit1g was going for the most immersive experience possible, making a perfect opportunity for his step dad to catch him with his guard down and in a tense moment of the game.
Maybe in future summit1g might lock his door before jumping back in to the thriller game, which is known to elicit these kind of reactions all by itself.
While he recovered however, his step dad took over and it must be said he wasn’t too shabby a gamer himself – and also wasn’t convinced by how scare it is either.
You can watch summit1g stream almost daily via his Twitch Channel, although we wouldn’t count on too many Outlast 2 streams in the future.
The organization has since started a new interview series with its intern, JhbTeam, whose unique style resulted in a downright hilarious conversation between himself and Neekolul for its pilot episode.
Neekolul’s forthcoming answer was something that no one expected: “It’s cool. You know, you can say almost anything and someone’s gonna like your tweet. You could say like, ‘I like to eat s**t,’ and people are like, ‘Yeah!’”
However, Neeko didn’t have an answer for “Why do you have a boyfriend?” leaving Jhb giving her an humorously intense staredown as she scrambled to address the random question.
It seems that Jhb’s response of, “Flying, so I could come see you,” didn’t go over so well, with the star giving an understandable “WTF” look at his reply — which senior producer ‘rufhaus’s’ editing skills made into a truly funny moment.
Amid the ensuing hijinks with Jhb, Neeko did admit that her rise to internet stardom wasn’t a piece of cake, with many criticizing her for reaching fame so quickly and doubting her abilities (although that was about the only serious moment throughout the entire interview).
Introducing “TBH w/ JHB” an interview show starring our social media intern, Jhb, who created this concept as part of his internship project.
While fans probably didn’t learn anything totally new about Neeko in this video (aside from her favorite primary color, which is blue — which isn’t even a primary color), it’s definitely worth a watch for viewers looking to have a laugh as they watch their favorite influencer scramble for answers in the face of a gut-bustingly awkward interview session.
Who can we expect to see on TBH with JHB in the future?
Although Neekolul was just the first guest on 100 Thieves’ new show, Jhb did let fans in on what other guests could be making an appearance in his famously awkward series later on.
“Basically, people that are close in the gaming scene/community and are recognizable to fans,” Jhb revealed. “I want to make sure the guests know who I am in a sense of not making them uncomfortable, and that they know how awkward I am.”
Jhb is 100 Thieves’ intern, who boasts a successful YouTube channel and Twitch stream where he collaborates with other big names in the gaming space.
That’s not all; he even dropped a few potential names, most notably CallMeCarson, Jordan Fisher, Hitchariide and even 100 Thieves founder, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag.
“We honestly have no idea who to have on next,” he added. “I definitely want to have Nadeshot on the show, as I see it as one of the most iconic ones that we’ll make, but as of right now, we have no idea. I mainly want to have 100 Thieves creators on, but in the meantime, no idea.”
Who knows who will be featured on the show next? Not even Jhb himself is sure; but that just means that the possibilities are endless.
