News that Ninja and Drake scooped an award for gaming moment of the year didn’t go down too well with everybody, especially one Dark Souls streamer who decided to trash their room. 

The outburst from The_Happy_Hob, quite clearly in jest, was a reaction to Drake and Ninja scooping the ‘Fan Favorite Gaming Moment’. 

Ninja picked up this award and two others during the Gamers’ Choice Awards from CBS, however the (not so) Happy Hob couldn’t believe that it wasn’t him picking up the prize instead. 

So, he went a bit crazy. 

Grabbing almost anything within five yards of him, the streamer threw things across the room, slammed equipment onto the floor and eventually went on to punch his camera before screaming about the awards ceremony results. 

“Ninja and Drake for favorite gaming moment of the year… That’s fine. OK” he said, before launching some of his belongings around the room.

According to a post on Reddit, the streamer was mad because he was also nominated for the same award after “beating all 3 games without getting hit”, however we was pipped to the prize by the popular duo.

After punching the camera, he picked it back up.

“Where’s my award CBS? Huh? Where’s my fucking award? Gaming moment of the year… Drake? Who’s Drake? Who’s Drake? Huh? Fucking hell. 

“Do you know what I’ve been through, huh? I needed this!”

His reaction was quite obviously sarcastic, but we’re sure he is a bit saddened by losing out to Ninja and Drake to some extent. Just not as much as he’s making out in this video (surely).

xQc explains why he actually likes strict Cyberpunk 2077 streaming rules

CD Projekt Red just unveiled details surrounding content creation and early access for Cyberpunk 2077. While many believe the guidelines to be quite strict, Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has explained why he actually likes them.

There’s no denying Cyberpunk 2077 is one the most hotly anticipated games in quite some time. After all, it has been seven years since the reveal trailer. The gaming industry has been salivating over every little detail since, and in a matter of days, it’ll finally be out in the wild.

Before we get to the December 10 release date, however, a few lucky individuals have already secured some early copies. Be it through accidental early shipping, or popular content creators being provided early access. Regardless of how people got their hands on it, everyone has to follow a set of strict rules.

Failing to do so will be met with harsh consequences. While various streamers were initially against this kind of approach, one of the biggest names on Twitch has spoken out in favor of CD Projekt Red’s decision. Here’s why xQc actually prefers the strict guidelines.

“Our ambition is for gamers all across the world to have the same – spoiler-free – experience at the time the game releases,” the devs shared in a December 2 post. As a result of this goal, no one is allowed to stream or release content before the December 9 embargo that drops at 3 AM PT.

Anyone that goes against this ruling will be met with copyright strikes and potentially face further legal action. Obviously, once this deadline expires, they want everyone to be sharing their experiences “like there’s no tomorrow.”

Reacting to the news, xQc explained why this approach is far better from a streamer’s perspective. In order to stream various other titles as soon as possible, xQc has had to jump through some hurdles.

“The only games I got to stream early… I literally had to get someone’s account from New Zealand, pay them so they buy the game on my account, get the account back, change password, log in, and play early.”

For other streamers, they’re often given early access codes. That’s never quite been the case for xQc though. Instead, he has to go about things in a more convoluted way. Manually accessing the game through a New Zealand-based account, the region where games unlock ahead of every other country. 

“I had to even out the playing field,” he explained. But thanks to these new guidelines from CD Projekt Red, that won’t be an issue with the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. “I’m happy that [they] took action in making sure the playing field is even across the board for the consumers.”

“It’s better for everybody,” he added before going off on another tangent. Currently investing his time into GTA V, it’s clear that xQc is eager to take a trip down to Night City. Expect to see him, along with practically every other streamer, jumping into Cyberpunk 2077 as soon as the December 9 embargo comes to an end.
