Ethan Klein, also known as H3H3, has explained why he would “fully recommend” Ghost of Tsushima, the brand new action-adventure PS4 exclusive that has captivated audiences across the world. 

As far as exclusives go, it’s Sony and Playstation that have raised the bar incredibly high, giving next-gen consoles an awful lot to live up to. From The Last of Us to God of War, PS4 exclusives have regularly left players reeling from their narrative powers.

Ghost of Tsushima is another PS4 exclusive, this time released in July 2020. Upon release, it received critical and commercial success, with some suggesting it is in the same league as the best games of the year.

In a July 29 podcast alongside his wife Hila, Ethan Klein explained why he is having so much fun with the game, and why he’d “fully recommend” it to all his viewers.

“I have been playing Ghost of Tsushima,” Klein said. “I have to tell you all – I’ve been playing for probably 5, maybe 6 hours [and] so far it’s really good. I’d highly recommend it to everybody. It’s like Skyrim samurai style.”

The game combines an open world with a samurai narrative, focusing on Jin Sakai, one of the last warriors on Tsushima Island during the Mongol invasion of 1274.

“Usually I’m so annoyed by video game dialogue,” he continued. “Story and the mannerisms, but this one I’m loving everything about it, the combat, the dialogue. You get to see his a*s when he goes in a hot spring. It’s beautiful, unbelievable. So there you have it, highly recommend.”

Sony has confirmed that thousands of current-gen games will be playable on the PS5 so, if you’re worried about how late in the PS4’s life-cycle Ghost of Tsushima has released, don’t be. You can pick it up and play it to your heart’s content, whether on current or next-gen.

It’s well worth the purchase, at least according to Ethan Klein.

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.
