Usually, parks are an ideal place to kickback, and nowadays maybe even catch some rare Pokémon; but thus was not the case for Summit1g, a Twitch streamer with 86 million views. The poor guy was literally mid-stream, playing Pokémon GO in this video, when all of a sudden you see the police show up, guns pointing at him, because one of his viewers prank called in on him. 

I mean come on dude...According to KKTV, the police were alerted that a man in the park had an 'AK-47 or AR' and that he'd 'planted remote bombs in the park, and wanted to kill cops.

“I offered to give [officers] a little information about what was happening because I kind of knew, considering it happens to other streamers all the time but more in their homes. You get someone’s address and you swat them. I never thought it would happen in a park,” Lazar told KKTV.

Fortunately, everything worked out, and Summit1G was able to explain to the police what was going on. Some final parting words of wisdom regarding all the madness from the man himself:

"It's always got to be some type of dickbag on Twitch," Summit1g said. "Literally all they're doing is making cops waste their resources, and putting people in danger...that guy was pulling an M16 [rifle] out of his trunk...and I still got the f**king Charmander, bitch."

The video above shows the live stream of a video game streamer named Alex Ramirez when he "allegedly" witnessed a murderer dump a body behind a church while he was playing. You can hear him begin a 911 call, the video also follows up with a separate video where he claims to have been fired from his job. All this led to a lot of people being fooled and some people even donating money to a GoFundMe account which has now been deactivated. 

Not everyone was convinced, a person in the comments to this video links Ramirez to a troll account on Twitch that has already been banned for faking similar hoaxes.



 One man even did his own sleuthing and called the police department that Ramirez pretended to call and found out that it was, in fact, a hoax. 



According to Gizmodo, Uber has confirmed that Ramirez does work for them but hasn't been suspended (yet) and that anyone who donated to the GoFundMe account will be refunded.

Jaryd “summit1g” Lazar ranks as one of the leading Counter-Strike streaming authorities with comfortably over a million followers. Over the weekend he took a gander and subbed for a pro team, which suffice to say, didn't bode well for the young lad.

With a whopping $250k on the line the big boys were definitely out like Luminosity, Tempo Storm, and Cloud9. Summit however, was subbing for Splyce, which isn't the most accomplished of American teams.

Splyce found themselves squared off against Counter Logic Gaming, where they surprisingly enough held their own, and even took 15 rounds to CLG's 11. Things got real heavy, real quick though when after Summit achieved a clutch kill, he proceeded to walk into the very flames of the molotov he'd tossed to elminate his opponent on the way to disarming the bomb, and 'almost' taking home the victory.

Splyce went on to end up in OT, lost the next couple games, and the eventual match 2-0.

The memes thus far have been golden:

By "better" I mean that they really rekt this streamer. YouTuber Jericho decided to subject himself to playing Smash while sitting on a mechanical bull couch controlled by Twitch.

WARNING: Strong language near the middle of the video. 

These cops really got the wrong guy.  Jarid Hamilton was in the process of live streaming on Twitch when the cops came knocking at his door for a noise complaint.  His neighbor, Benjamin Michael Frostad, allegedly called the police on Hamilton so he could steal from him.

 After giving the police some trouble, Hamilton is taken out of his apartment to be arrested for refusing to give his name to the police. 

That's when Frostad sneaks in and takes some shoes and headphones.  He also returns for more items a little later.  You can see him look straight into the camera to check if the coast is clear.

Obviously, it wasn't. The people watching Hamilton's livestream on Twitch called the police to report the burglary.  Now Frostad's facing felony burglary charges. 


Twitch plays and defeats dark souls after 43 days.

With over 900 deaths and and over a month spent on the endeavor, the community of Twitch has vanquished Gwyn, thus beating Dark Souls.

It took them a while to figure out. For a very long while, it looked like this:



But, as Kotaku details, the community eventually found a system that works:

After a few days of fumbling around, it was decided to change the rules of the game or call it quits. In some circles, this disqualified Twitch Plays Dark Souls from being a legitimate playthrough; it subverted the way Dark Souls plays. They essentially changed it from a 3D action game into a turn-based affair.

Was it cheating? Sure. Was it the only way for Twitch Plays Dark Souls to move forward? Probably. Does that mean their achievements are meaningless? No.

Soon enough, they beat the Asylum Demon.

A little later, they beat the game's hardest boss, Orstein and Smough. With O&S slaughtered, it seemed a matter of time until they'd actually beat the game.

That time, as it turned out, was on Saturday. 43 days, eight hours, 14 minutes, and 23 seconds after attempting the nearly impossible, Twitch Plays Dark Souls was able to finally say they'd beaten Dark Souls. They only died 904 times, too!

Naturally, they are already on Dark Souls 2 and it's just as interminable to watch.

Which you can do right here.

Naughty Dog designers seemed to have confirmed work on Last of Us 2.

Well, well, well, you naughty dog, you.

During a recent Twitch live stream discussing the Uncharted Nathan Drake Collection, a Naughty Dog designer seemed to let a cat out of the bag when he mentioned the first Last of Us game.

Folks, there has only ever been one Last of Us released or announced or otherwise. This careless reference seems like a plain admission that the fantastic developer is working on a sequel to the incredible 2014 release.



Games Radar broke it down



It was Uncharted series writer Josh Scherr who had a slip of the tongue, talking up his co-worker Eric Baldwin's facial animation work on "all of the Uncharted games and the first The Last of Us."

Baldwin immediately recognized his error and attempted to backpedal, but he couldn't seem to come up with anything else to say. "Uh, did I say 'the first The Last of Us'? The first The Last of Us. Uh, The Last of Us! The first Last of Us."



They were also kind enough to upload a YouTube video of the incident in question. See for yourself:
