Twitch streamer Cory ‘KingGothalion’ Michael came across a scene in Rage 2 that reminded viewers that a crazy moment could pop up at any time.

Variety streamers on Twitch play a bunch of games, usually hopping on the newest game on the market and that was no different with KingGothalion starting his first playthrough of Rage 2.

The sequel to the 2011 original looks to build upon the foundation of the original by offering a more vibrant and lifeful world. This definitely shows one of the ways the world is more alive when compared to its predecessor.

BethesdaRage 2 takes a lot of inspiration from Doom.

The world of Rage 2 is strange

During his stream, KingGothalion came across a part of the game where an NPC was throwing up, however that wasn’t even the craziest thing going on in the scene.

Two other NPCs were wrestling each other while half-naked, which wasn’t really explained by the game and didn’t make that much sense.

“These guys playing ol’ slapass,” Gothalion asked as he burst out into laughter.

Moments like this come fast and often in open world games but nothing quite to this extent. It’s certainly a weird scene to see in a game but you certainly can’t have the same “empty world” complaints you had with Rage 1 after seeing this.

BethesdaRage 2 has received mixed reviews so far.

Is Rage 2 any good?

According to Metacritic, Rage 2 has received mixed reviews and is currently sitting at 73, which isn’t bad but isn’t great. Not every publication has released a review yet so this number could rise or fall in the coming days.

It appears that much of the praise centers around the shooting mechanics, which borrow a lot from Doom’s 2016 reboot, but the rest of the game leaves a lot to be desired.

Rage 2 releases on PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 14.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
