Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Appears On Donkey Kong 64 Charity Stream To Support Trans Rights

Youtuber Harry "Hbomberguy" Brewis has had a big weekend. For the past several dozen hours, he's been streaming Donkey Kong 64, attempting to complete the game at 101 percent, to raise money for Mermaids, a UK charity which provides support for transgender children, teenagers, and their families. He's raised over $260,000 so far, and has had several guests on to help promote the stream and its cause, including DK64 composer Grant Kirkhope, Doom co-creator Jon Romero, and, recently, New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

About 50 hours into Hbomberguy's marathon stream, it's revealed that Occasio-Cortez had tweeted in support of the stream. You can watch an archive of that moment here (11:53:28 in the video). After that, the stream chat quickly begins to ask her to come on, and one the members of Hbomberguy's stream begins reaching out to the congresswoman to come on.

Reader Discussion – What's Your Favorite Remake?

Reader Discussion – What's Your Favorite Remake?

Capcom's Resident Evil 2 Remake is out this coming Friday. It's a hugely ambitious re-imagining of the original game, to the point where it blurs the line between remake and original game somewhat. But we're not having that discussion right now. Instead, we want to know what your favorite remake is.

Mine would have to the HD remake of the original Resident Evil. And I do mean the HD one - I played a little bit of the Gamecube version, and just couldn't deal with the tank controls. The remapping of control scheme that came with the recent HD iteration fixed that issue, and allowed me to really sink my teeth into the first Resident Evil for the first time, and I loved every minute of it (except for maybe that one time I got stuck looking for a key I already had in my inventory. That part maybe wasn't my greatest moment). Recently, the Shadow of the Colossus remake really struck a chord in me, but since I'd already beaten the original, it didn't have the same impact on me.

So what about you? Is The Last of Us: Remastered and not the original one of your favorite games of all time? Has an HD update made turned you around on a game? Hit us with those comments, folks!

Jump Force Ad Seemingly Reveals Jotaro Kujo, Dragon Quest Anime Hero As Playable Characters

Jump Force Ad Seemingly Reveals Jotaro Kujo, Dragon Quest Anime Hero As Playable Characters

People are seemingly being served Jump Force ads across Instagram and Facebook showing two unannounced characters: Jotaro Kujo from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and Dai, the titular protagonist of Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai.

Photos of the wide-view ad popped up on Reddit, and several users there and on Twitter have reported seeing the two characters in it.

Neither character currently shows up on Jump Force's beta (which ends today) or any other official media, meaning they have not yet been officially announced for the game. That said, it's looking fairly likely the pair will be part of the Jump Force roster.

See How Persona 5 Pulled Off Some Its Behind-The-Scenes Tricks In This Video

Persona 5 got plenty of style points back when we reviewed it in 2017. As it turns out, it pulled off that style the same way most games do: With some sleight of hand, as some of the places you visit are not quite what they seem.

Youtuber Shesez shows off some of the neat tricks Persona 5 uses to detail its world. Areas that look 3D but aren't, objects rendered outside the scene that appear only when they're needed, and locations with lots of details players never see are just some of the things Shesez showcases below.
