Popular streamer Grand Theft Auto V, has gained popularity on Twitch as it has allowed streamers to play a character inside the popular sandbox title. 

Players can, with the lingering worry of police around, pretty much do anything inside the game when it comes to role-playing. That includes joking around and pulling off comedic skits like heading to a nightclub or engaging in a yoga session. Yet, a yoga session landed streamer Sams, who plays the Dmitri character, in trouble and struck with a 90 probationary period following reports of sexualized content.

Screengrab via TwitchTrainwrecks aimed his crosshairs at Twitch and took aim with some verbal shots.

That didn’t go down with a few other streamers, including Trainwrecks, who pointed out that there is much more explicit content being streamed on other parts of the website – nevermind inside a game.

“Have you seen your Just Chatting section? That’s all ninety percent of it is, partner conduct team,” started the streamer after coming across his fellow broadcaster’s strange warning. “Have you seen the gym streams? Literally, someone on a treadmill and the cameras on their ass. Someones on the Stairmaster? The cameras on their ass.”

Trainwrecks wasn’t finished there though. “The only time the camera is on their front side is when suddenly they have to lean forward to aim the camera angle and you see down their chest while they’re drinking water,” he added.

The streamer continued on with the same line of questioning towards Twitch, pointing out that some streamers getting even more explicit with their real-life content, not just the game they play.

Of course, Trainwrecks isn’t the only streamer who has aired their frustrations with Twitch’s up-and-down warning system. Popular broadcaster MontanaBlack noted that he’d leave and stream elsewhere if there was a suitable alternative because of frustrations with how Twitch hands out warnings and suspensions. 

Whether or not the livestreaming platform will change course on their warning against the GTA RP streamer remains to be seen.

Yet, it’s clearly upset Trainwrecks and plenty of other streamers who want a bit more consistency across the board.

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.
