Partnered Twitch streamer “Quirkitized” had enough of dealing with frustrating hardware problems during a game of Wreckfest, and took out his frustrations on his PC — leading to an ear-splitting conclusion.

Considering the current global state of affairs, it comes as little surprise that many people are dealing with pent-up frustrations — Twitch streamers, included.

One such Twitch streamer, going by the handle “Quirkitized,” had his own round of frustrating experiences during an April 18 stream of popular game “Wreckfest,” a demolition derby-type racing game that soon led to real-life events of a similar theme.

Twitch partner “Quirkitized” was in the middle of a Wreckfest session when he took elements from the game into real life.

While playing the game, Quirkitized realized he was having issues with his computer mouse, being unable to move his cursor across the game’s menu nor type in the password for his server.

“I can’t even, like — I swear to god,” the streamer vented. “I can’t even, like, move my f**kin’ mouse around the f**king menu!”

That wasn’t the end of his problems, with the broadcaster also unable to move his mouse on a different menu — leading to a physical outburst shortly thereafter.

“I can’t, like… just nothing f**king responds when I use this f**king game, I swear to god,” he continued, before rising from his chair to beat his mouse against his desk, wielding its connecting wire like a whip.

Somehow, his antics disturbed some adjoining equipment, causing his audio to produce a high-pitched keen that he quickly remedied to save his viewers’ ears.

As though in perfect timing, Quirkitized’s subscription notification popped up just as he moved out of frame of the camera, which showed the streamer appearing from the doorway to say, “You’ve been Quirkitized” — adding a perfectly-timed layer of hilarity to an otherwise tense moment.

Unfortunately, the streamer ended his broadcast shortly thereafter, likely too heated to return to his game straightaway (not counting his destroyed mouse).

Thankfully, he has now returned to regular streaming of Wreckfest in spite of the game’s alleged hardware issues on unsuspecting players.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
