Well known British game critic and YouTuber John ‘TotalBiscuit’ Bain has passed away on May 24th, 2018.

Bain, who was 33 at the time of his death, had been struggling from bowel cancer, which he was first diagnosed with in 2014.

His wife, Genna, announced his death by posting an endearing remembrance message on both her and her husband’s Twitter pages.

Despite the fact that TotalBiscuit’s cancer was publicly known to be terminal since October of 2015, his death still comes as a shock to the millions of people who followed his popular game criticisms and YouTube channel.

He had recently announced his retirement earlier in May, saying that his intensive treatments were no longer working. During the announcement, he expressed his desire for his wife to continue tending to his work and channel after his death.

“I fully expect The Co-optional Podcast to go on and I love the thought that once I’m gone, the channels will go on in my absence, hosted by the person who knows me best and has been with me for the better part of my adult life.”

He had also taken the time to thank his numerous fans for all that they had meant to him

“It’s been a privilege. Thank you all for letting me into your life and do something so important as to have an impact on how you spend your hard-earned money.”

TotalBiscuit will be remembered for his candid nature and eccentric personality as a video game critic, commentator, and professional esports caster.

He is survived by his wife Genna and step-son Orion, to whom we express our deepest condolences.

Apex Legends Season 7 is almost here, and that means changes to characters. So, we’ve rounded up all the buffs that Respawn have confirmed so far.

With each new Apex Legends season, players are always looking forward to getting their hands on a new Legend as well as seeing what’s been changed to existing Legends, weapons, and items.

As Season 7 is on the horizon, Respawn have begun to roll out their teasers – with a familiar-looking UFO turning up on both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Aside from that, the devs have also been planting seeds about what buffs and nerfs are coming in the new season. So, we’ve rounded up the buffs that we know about so far.

Mirage

As one of Apex’s most popular characters, players have been desperate for Respawn to give Mirage a power increase, even after his abilities rework.

Those changes have always been on the horizon, as devs have answered numerous questions with positives answers about buffs, and those promises will finally come to fruition with the start of Season 7.

Daniel Klein, a game designer for Respawn, confirmed that they’ve been testing changes to his Life of the Party ult, so that could be the main change that the Holographic Trickster receives next season.

Mirage is finally set to receive some changes.

Octane

Octane is also confirmed to be getting some positive treatment, but Respawn say it will only be a “tiny buff,” so no indication exactly what it will be yet. 

Rampart

As for Rampart, while a buff has been confirmed, there haven’t been any hints as to what it could entail. Since her introduction, players have made a number of suggestions – including being able to move around while firing her minigun. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see on that front.

Pathfinder

Pathfinder will also be receiving a change to the cooldown on his grapple ability. However, the last time this was labeled a buff, it actually turned out to be a nerf

Audio

Not a buff as such, but Respawn have also confirmed that lots of progress has been made on audio problems, which have been plaguing the game for months, and these fixes will be coming in Season 7.

As for what else is coming in Season 7, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know here. We’ll just have to wait until November 4, when the new season starts, to see it all in action.
