Recap #7

If January felt like a couple of months of its own while February passed by like a breeze, March is truly something else.

This month truly feels like forever. With the coronavirus outbreak sweeping over the entire world, people are asked to stay inside their homes hence the surge in concurrent online users.

But even if you’re online 24/7, here are some of the news you might have missed out on in March:

Bored at home? If you’re running out of quarantine activities, perhaps it’s time to download a new video game!

If you’re running short of cash but would still love to buy a new game or two, great news: EA is having a major spring sale on their titular games.

If you’re an avid Sims 4 player, some expansion packs and DLCs are also on sale. While the base game is currently 75% off on the store, the expansion packs are cheaper by 20%-50% off.

While the rest of the world cannot go out and return to their normal, everyday lives — it’s the perfect time to live in your ideal little simulated world.

DrDisrespect teased his fans about a big announcement on March 12, regarding his streaming platform decisions for the foreseeable future.

The two-time’s big announcement prompted many to think about the possibility of him leaving the platform.

Turns out, it’s confirmed that the Doc is staying on Twitch in a stunning reveal video posted on Twitter.

Sitting on top of Twitch’s list of most followed streamers at the sixth spot, the Doc has been catching up to some of the biggest names on Twitch who jumped ships to rival Mixer.

The gamer’s exclusivity deal is rumored to be a multi-year and a multi-dollar contract according to esports journalist Rod Breslau.

Famous Youtuber Mark “Markiplier” Fischbach recently called out a biographical book written about him.

While this may seem flattering or seen as an honor to many, the thing is: the said book was published without his knowledge or consent.

Surprised is an understatement to describe how he felt after reading a biography of his entire life and Youtube career in book form. The said book was titled: Top Video Gamers in the World – Mark Markiplier Fischbach.

He further said he’s not entirely sure about what he intends to do with the book, but suggested the likely possibility of bringing the matter up to his lawyers.

Seems like KSI will pause all boxing-related endeavors until 2021.

The Youtuber-turned-pro boxer decided to step back from the sport, shortly after Jake Paul challenged him to a fight following the defeat of his older brother (Logan Paul).

2020 is going to be a busy week for the Youtuber. He noted how his upcoming tour schedule and plans to release new music are keeping him too busy to focus on physical training.

However, KSI is not entirely saying goodbye to boxing. He even confirmed that he’d hop back into the ring sometime around 2021.

After 13 years, celebrity Youtuber Trisha Paytas recently announced she’s quitting the platform full-time.

The decision to quit as a full-time Youtuber is grounded on the desire to focus her time on TikTok, OnlyFans, and her podcast ‘The Dish With Trish.’

Paytas also revealed she no longer has an immense passion for Youtube like she used to.

Opening up about the future of her content, she said that she wasn’t feeling motivated by money, or by views on Youtube anymore.

It’s confirmed, Twitch is keeping one of its biggest stars.

Imane “Pokimane” Anys recently signed a multi-year deal to stay on Amazon’s streaming platform.

The streamer has committed herself to stream exclusively on the platform, ending fan speculation that she could be moving to Mixer soon.

The famous OfflineTV member started her streaming career back in 2013. As of writing, Pokimane has more than 4.1 million followers on her Twitch channel.

Her influence remains unparalleled, she even landed her own personal Fortnite emote to immortalize her in-game.

CouRageJD gets real with fans as he opens up about his streaming struggles.

Recently, he admitted how it’s hard for him to go live and play games because of viewership fears.

Titular games like Modern Warfare have left him uninspired to grind like he used to, even killing the love he has for streaming.

He is struggling to go live recently, because he doesn’t want to force himself to play specific games or lose viewership.

In a seemingly act of revenge, Alinity’s cat seized the opportunity to chomp the streamer’s arm as she was singing her heart out to some classic Aerosmith.

It’s worth pointing out (in a closer look) that the cat that got tossed on the stream was Milo, not Maya. It was not the same cat as most initially assumed it to be. In case you missed it, the streamer was under fire for tossing her cat Maya while on-stream a few months back.

Alinity fans need not to worry, though. The bite didn’t seem to be too painful, as suggested by the star’s reaction.

Previously known as Project A, Riot’s Valorant is revealed to be a 5v5 competitive, character-based first-person shooter game.

It is only designed for launch on PC, but the game may soon find its ways to other consoles.

Riot Games is the developer behind titular games such as League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, and Legends of Runeterra.

Devs designed Valorant to blend similar characteristics from Overwatch and Counter-Strike when it comes to gameplay. Two teams of 5 players battle to win a round-based, best of 24 rounds gunfight.

Youtuber Ethan Dolan shut down haters and told them: no, not today.

One of the Dolan Twins, Ethan has boldly called out the “sh*tty” people who are attacking his appearance as he opened up about his struggles in dealing with acne.

Many users have criticized the way he looked as of late, with a visible acne break out in most of his photos on social media.

Perhaps feeling overwhelmed by the hate comments, he spoke up on Twitter about his acne issues which he revealed was out of his control.

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has officially decided to skip this year’s E3 due to COVID-9 concerns.

The annual event will not take place this June as previously scheduled.

The decision came after careful consideration — given that the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic.

Fortunately, the ESA will keep in touch with both exhibitors and attendees to issue “full refunds” without any hassle.
