The debate about mouse and keyboard vs controller has been around since consoles existed but Twitch streamer Aris has one of the most unique takes yet as to why he prefers to use a controller.

While many prefer to use a mouse and keyboard while playing PC games, Aris bucks the trend entirely by using a controller when playing titles like Doom 3 or GTA 5.

While streaming id Software’s FPS title on Tuesday, August 13, a member of his chat asked him why he prefers the joypad over the mouse, with the streamer giving an incredible answer to the viewer’s query.

Scuf GamingControllers are even being made in an attempt bridge the gap between the competitive gap…

“I don’t use mouse and keyboard intentionally due to its direct connection to working. I’m so against working and having a job that I refuse to use those peripherals for fun,” the American explained. “They’re so closely tied to sadness (laughing).” Aris elaborated further saying: “I can’t bring myself to combine them with the concept of fun.”

After a calm and fairly reasonable explanation, he finished by sarcastically saying to enjoy using “that mouse and keyboard” before insulting the viewer with a few expletives.

AvoidThePuddle has been known to do things a little differently with one example being opting to camp an entire match of Blackout – something which nobody does in the high-octane battle royale game.

MKB vs controller

Few gamers will argue that using a keyboard and mouse provides a distinct advantage, at least in a competitive sense. The difference is clear and results in even the best console players being, for the most part, unable to compete with the best PC players.

It’s the reason why aim assist is a feature used on console shooters and not PC. Due to the difference there has also been discussions about whether using a mouse and keyboard on console is cheating.

The debate between MKB and controllers will continue with both sides having their own arguments as to why they use each and whether they should be allowed in the same game. Aris though, at least provided one of the more unique takes to date.

Bryce Hall puts Quen Blackwell on blast after Griffin Johnson TikTok drama

Following on from Quen Blackwell and Griffin Johnson’s social media clash, Bryce Hall has now jumped into the mix and lashed back at the original post that kickstarted the feud.

If you’re not up to speed on the latest TikTok kerfuffle, don’t stress. Here’s a quick refresher. Two days ago social media celeb Quen Blackwell reacted to a TikTok post featuring Bryce Hall and Addison Rae.

Their relationship has been hot and cold throughout most of the year. Blackwell took the opportunity to joke about the on-again, off-again couple, yelling “no” at the top of lungs in her own post. While Johnson was the first to take issue with her comedic reaction, Hall has now fired back as well.

Rather than calling her out on social media, however, Hall allegedly got in touch and hashed it out directly. It’s clear that things didn’t go down all too well between the pair as he’s since gone on to expose their private conversation.

“So I confronted her and talked about it,” he said. As it turns out, Blackwell was forthcoming with her intentions. “I only do this for likes and being relatable,” she explained, according to Hall.

“I get it, you’re just doing it for numbers. It had like 1.5 million likes, I get it,” Hall assured. As social media personalities, both have their own audiences and both create content to generate engagement. While that TikTok may have struck a nerve at first, it seemed as though they were able to get on the same page in their chat.

That mutual respect didn’t stand for all too long though. Blackwell claimed she wouldn’t do it again, though that wasn’t the case as she touched on the subject 24 hours later before deleting her videos. “It’s so fake,” Hall said in response.

“Now that she’s deleted the videos, we’re friends again. We’re gonna be like the rest of these social media people and just act as though nothing happens behind the scenes.”


Clearly not too pleased with how the drama unfolded, Hall can at least respect that Blackwell deleted her latest videos. At the time of writing, this seems to be the end of the controversy. Though it could all kick off once more if Blackwell goes back on her word yet again.
