Fans of Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek have noticed that he’s not playing Halo: Reach much anymore, and turns out there’s actually a very specific reason for that.

No one is bigger in the world of first-person shooters than shroud, so when Halo: Reach finally released on PC in early December, many waited in anticipation for him to try it out.

After playing the game for a few days, he decided to move onto other things, such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Apex Legends, and most recently, Rainbow 6: Siege.

BungieHalo: Reach is the first game in the franchise that’s been released on PC, with the rest of the series to follow.

It was during one of his recent Rainbow 6 streams that one of his viewers asked if he hadn’t enjoyed Halo, to which the Mixer star replied stressing the contrary.

“Actually, I loved it, but then summit1G stopped playing and I got really bummed,” he explained. “Because I wanted to play with him, that’s the main reason I was playing.”

“He stopped playing as I started playing and I got bummed about it, because I thought it was so fun” he added, basically citing summit’s decision as the reason why he hasn’t been playing Halo either.

Ironically, it was shroud who had initially suggested summit1G ditch Halo for Escape from Tarkov, the story-driven MMO that the Mixer star has been playing religiously over the past few months.

Why did summit1G quit PC Halo?

To say that summit’s few weeks of playing Halo: Reach on PC was an up-and-down rollercoaster ride would be an understatement, as the star Twitch streamer didn’t always have exactly the best of experiences streaming the game.

His main gripe was the huge advantage that he claimed controller players had because of aim assist, which caused him to quit the game several times and ultimately uninstall it.

His final verdict of the game, at least for now, is that Microsoft attempt to try and “save” the popular FPS franchise by releasing it on PC hasn’t worked, since it’s alienated a lot of mouse-and-keyboard players.

Summit1G and the PC version of Halo: Reach haven’t exactly meshed well.

Shroud admits that he “loves” Halo, but…

As mentioned above, the former CS:GO pro did say he really enjoyed playing the game but did make sure to point out that he liked the casual modes a lot more than the ranked playlists.

“Let me put an important ‘but’ here – I loved Halo doing casual game modes like SWAT, snipers-only was okay,” he said. “Shit like that. I liked that more than playing actual ranked.”

That said, he did have some complaints about the game when he was playing, such as citing the game’s old age as a reason for its graphical shortcomings, and sometimes getting spawn-trapped by more experienced players.

YouTuber and TikTok star Bryce Hall came under fire after uploading a video that showed himself attempting to break up a fight between the Sway House boys and a bystander — and now, he’s revealed his side of the story.

The video, originally taken on September 23, sparked outrage among Hall’s fanbase after being posted on October 4, with many critics calling out the influencer for what appeared to be bad behavior.

However, Sway House member Nick Bean clarified what took place in an Instagram Live stream, stating that the altercation had been his fault and that things ultimately ended on a happy note, while also claiming the incident was “misrepresented” by media outlets.

This didn’t stop some commenters from still finding fault with the situation — especially since a few choice homophobic slurs had been thrown out during the video.

Bryce Hall later told his side of the story during an episode of his “Capital University” podcast on October 7, seeming to confirm Bean’s version of events: A drunk Bean had tossed a traffic cone onto a nearby car, causing the owner to come out of a restaurant to assess the situation.

Bryce claimed that the car’s owner punched Bean in the face twice, leading to the all-out brawl seen in the video. Just like Bean’s statement, he claimed that the group made up in the end; but that wasn’t all he revealed.

The TikToker also explained why he’d even uploaded the video in the first place, stating that he wanted to get ahead of the media outlets to prevent any misinterpreting of the situation.

“We didn’t actually know that there was a video,” Hall admitted, referring to the now-viral clip originally taken from a paparazzi outlet. “I actually tweeted out the video, because I knew it was going to come out. I didn’t want the press articles to switch up the story at all. So I tweeted it out.”

At long last, Hall has finally cleared up the events leading up to the viral video; and while some fans are understanding, it doesn’t look like internet critics are willing to let this one go, regardless of his and Bean’s explanation.
