Popular Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect is an FPS fanatic, so when Riot announced they were working on a tactical shooter, he was immediately intrigued. However, when Valorant was revealed on March 2, the Doc was less than impressed by what he saw.

Riot elected to reveal the name of the game, previously only known as ‘Project A’, with a two-minute gameplay reveal, showing one complete round of action.

This was a somewhat unorthodox approach, rather than using edited gameplay for a trailer, and it has yielded a mixed response. Fellow streamer shroud believes it possibly made the game look less exciting than it is.

Valorant has a mix of gun-on-gun action as well as unique character abilities.

Similarly, Dr Disrespect checked out the gameplay on his stream on March 2, at the request of his viewers, but from his initial reaction, it’s clear to see he had higher expectations for the game.

As he watched the abilities being thrown down, he asked “what the f**k are we watching,” exasperated. As the trailer ended, he took a few moments to gather his thoughts, but the disappointment was clear to see.

“I’m not mad at what I’m seeing, I’m just disappointed,” he explained. “But, again, it’s too early, we’ll see what happens. They’ve been working on it for a long time, I’m sure it’s balanced, I’m sure it feels really good.”

He also agreed with his viewers that the game was heavily inspired by Counter-Strike. Riot have not been coy about making their intentions clear with targeting CS:GO players, boasting of 128-tick servers and the end of ‘peeker’s advantage’.

“It’s like a composite of other games, nothing new” the Doc read from his chat, “It didn’t blow me away.” Another viewer joked that it looked like a “mobile Overwatch.”

Valorant is set to release in Summer 2020, with a beta of some kind potentially releasing sooner. Riot had planned to host a behind-closed-doors play session for content creators, which Doc would possibly have been invited to, but the event was canceled amid growing concerns around Coronavirus.

It should be noted that the gameplay shown is still in a development stage, and may not represent the exact look and feel of the final product. However, given we’re only months out from launch, the gameplay should give a fairly accurate idea of what to expect.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
