Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s power level may have peaked at over 9000 while playing the latest anime game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot.

Lengyel, who was loving the game and watching the anime at the same time, finally reached a portion in the story where main protagonist Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan – a powerful evolved form with iconic blonde hair.

Kakarot follows the events of the main Dragon Ball Z anime. Goku’s transformation, which xQc had been waiting to see, occurs after one of the villains Frieza kills the character of Krillin.

“What? He made him implode!” xQc gasped as the scene played out. As the character of Goku began to transform into a Super Saiyan, a smile began to emerge on the streamer’s face.

“Pogchamp,” he smirked as the ground beneath Goku shook. “Oh sh*t! Finally, dude,” he grinned as Goku leveled up.

Unfortunately for xQc, before he could even lay a hand on Frieza with his new power, his game crashed.

“Game crashed, fatal error! What the f**k happened?!” the streamer exploded with enough rage to make Broly blush. As a ‘fatal error’ message appeared on stream, Lengyel roared with anger.

“Are you kidding me, dude?! Too much power!” he screamed, seemingly implying that Goku had caused the game to break. “Too much power! F**k off.”

As it turned out, the Android saga may have begun sooner than expected, because the former Overwatch League pro began blaming “bots” to causing the game to crash.

Luckily for the streamer, his last checkpoint wasn’t that far off from when the game froze, so he was able to get back to fighting Frieza in no time. Still, it was quite aggravating for xQc who had been waiting so long to reach that point in the game.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.


Pokimane responds to transphobia accusations after Discord DMs emerge

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
