Popular streamer xQc pulled off a brutal beatdown pretty much the only way it would be allowed to be shown on Twitch – by doing so in a VR game called Blade and Sorcery.

It’s no secret that xQc is one of the most eccentric and unpredictable personalities on Twitch, especially among the upper echelon of streamers.

His on-screen antics are devoid of both censorship and order, which is one of the big reasons why so many people tune in to watch his streams everyday. 

His latest act of hilarity came on a relatively new virtual reality game called Blade and Sorcey, which is self-described as a ‘VR fantasy sword fighting’ game. 

Placed in a sandy arena-like setting, xQc displayed his inner gladiator by absolutely demolishing another character with a morning star – a medieval weapon that’s essentially a club or a bat with numerous spikes protruding from it. 

WarpFrogBlade and Sorcery puts players right in the heart of medieval battle.

The moment in question came when xQc had just finished killing off a male character, and turned his attention to a female that was trying to attack him.

Grabbing her by the head, the streamer pulled her down to the ground until she was lying on the flat of her back, at which point he asked: “Any last words?

Before any final words were said, however, he began mercilessly bashing her head with the morning star weapon, continuing until so much blood had spattered everywhere that the character’s face was unrecognizable. 

Once finished, he cast her lifeless body aside, and tossed his weapon to the ground, as if to show that his work in the arena had been done and dusted. 

What is Blade and Sorcery?

Blade and Sorcery is a virtual reality game that takes place during medieval times, allowing players to use weapons from that era to fight off each other.

The game consists off “full physics driven” combat, including both close-range melees, ranged attacks, and even the use of magic.

The game is currently available in early access on Steam for $19.99, and it’s not clear yet when the full and final version of the game will be released.

Vinnie Hacker lashes out at “manipulative” fans after TikTok fame

Vinnie Hacker has spoken out about the problems of TikTok stardom, saying some of his fans are “manipulative” and “controlling.” He echoed the sentiment that nobody is perfect, and that people should “live life and learn from it.”

The role models and idols of today appear almost out of nowhere thanks to social media. The medium also leads to a host of those celebrities being quite young.

One of them is Vinnie Hacker. The TikToker has over 5.7 million fans on the platform, as well as 2 million on Instagram. However, life in the limelight has come with its own set of problems. Hacker feels like he’s been forced to live to unreasonable standards put by his fans.

“Why do some people want to control my life. Telling me who I can and can’t talk to. Saying that you’ll only allow me to be with “this person.” Grow up. Don’t be manipulative,” he said in a TikTok.

“You preach against manipulation and then go on and make sure that they live a life that’s satisfying to you and not them. One mistake and a person’s career is over in this area of work.”

“In the eyes of the internet, people are subjected to be role models. And people say to not set unnecessary standards for others, but wouldn’t you think a life without mistakes and growth and perfection is more of a high standard than learning and growing?”

He also said that once you get thrown into the social media machine, you can’t really pull yourself out. Ultimately, these stars live and die by their fans’ judgment.

“Once it gets past that breaking point to where someone becomes relevant, the assumptions come and get dragged along with them. Privacy is invaded and people try to tell them how to live their lives. You end up not being your own person, but the internet’s person.”

These comments come as Hacker takes a break from Twitch streaming to focus on his personal life.

“Taking a break from streaming for quite a while. I don’t really feel to explain. A lot of personal stuff, on top of the unfortunate stuff that happens whilst streaming. Something always goes wrong. I might begin again, I might not,” he said.
