Two of Call of Duty Gears of War sequel on his September 23 stream, playing through rounds of the multiplayer mode to get a feel for the latest entry to the chainsaw-loving franchise.

Grzesiek had a few things to say about the game’s cover mechanics as he played, after one instance of the diving feature caused him to leap straight out in front of two enemies to be killed before he could react. The streamer had clearly had his fill of battling the cover-based moves.

The Gears of the War franchise has always been based around cover-based combat and chainsaw guns.

“Why? Why does it roll? I’m just trying to get off the fucking wall, bro!” shroud yelled as he was sent into the rapid-fire Gears respawning process.

The Counter-Strike pro wasn’t the only one that hasn’t had grievances with the cover-based system. Dr Disrespect, who had been tuned in to his streaming colleagues’ broadcast, also aired his problems with the automatic evades in-game.

“Watching shroud right now playing Gears 5.  He’s echoed the same problem I have. Why isn’t there a disable button for automatic evade off of cover?” the Two-Time asked. “I get that it does it off the cover edge but it seems too ‘systematic’ and limiting. I want full control.”

These issues with mechanics aren’t the first time one of the platform’s biggest streamers has struggled through problems relating to Gears 5 and its systems.

When the title was first released, Dr Disrespect spent hours battling with his PC options as he tried to turn off the Xbox notifications he was being bombarded with by fans, slowly descending into muted rage on-stream until he finally found a solution.

Although both Twitch stars have struggled to adapt to Gears’ click-and-stick cover mechanics, they’ve not lost any of their ability to produce exciting moments on their broadcasts.

Earlier this week, shroud bagged his first nuke of Modern Warfare on the final day of the beta, while the Doc proved that no matter how he feels about a game, he’s always willing to get better at it when he clutched a 1v4 sudden-death moment to win the round for his squad.


James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
