Counter-Strike Caster Users Racial Slur During Birthday Stream

During a livestream celebrating his 29th birthday, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive commentator Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett, uttered a racial slur in a fit of gaming-related braggadocio.

While playing PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds, Trivett went into a pumped-up rant about his own skill in esports, eventually using a slur. The archive of the stream has since been taken down. We caution that the video uses strong derogatory language, but you can find another archive of the video here.

In a subsequent "Ask me anything," segment following the stream, Dot Esports reports Trivett mentioned he had been drinking during the stream (the tweet has since been deleted). However, he also lashed out against Counter-Strike community members who upset him, asking them to commit suicide. We once again advise that these videos use strong language regarding suicide. You can find an instance of Trevitt doing this here.

Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger Delisted From Some Major Online Storefronts

Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger Delisted From Some Major Online Storefronts

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is one of the games I don't think about too often, but when I do, I think "yeah, you know what? That game was fun." Unfortunately, it seems like fewer people will be able to experience that feeling, as it's been delisted from major console online storefronts.

The game seems to have been delisted from Steam, PSN, and Xbox Live early Friday. Currently, searching for the game on the PSN store does not bring up results for the game, though it's been available on the storefront before. On Xbox Live, you can find its official store page, but all you can find is the demo. You can also find the demo on Steam if you type the name into the search bar, but clicking on the link to the demo will bring you back to the main store page. The rest of the Call of Juarez games are still available, however.

If you absolutely need to get this game now, however, you have a couple of options. You can still get a digital PS3 code from Amazon, or you can buy the PC version off the Uplay Store.

Pokémon Go Gets Sprited Up For April Fool's Day

If you're checking out Pokémon Go's new quest system this weekend, you're in for a fun surprise: sprites!

To celebrate the internet's favorite holiday April Fool's Day early, Niantic is replacing the images of Pokémon that show up in Go's menus with their 2D counterparts. This doesn't affect them on the field or during the catching and stats screens, however.

Of course, Niantic also had some fun with the concept on their blog:

What To Watch This Weekend: Dota 2, Tekken 7, And Call of Duty

What To Watch This Weekend: Dota 2, Tekken 7, And Call of Duty

Regionals, playoffs, and championships all make for a nice weekend to just sit back and watch people play games while you're ignoring Far Cry 5's story.

Dota 2's 7.12 patch showed up late for its own welcoming party, as teams had to play on the previous patch for the first day of the Dota Asia Championship in Shanghai. VP may have already qualified for the event, but seeing who might emerge as the second team to secure an invite (and get the $370,000 first-place price) makes a good case for staying up late on a Saturday night for the group stage (or catching the rebroadcast Sunday morning).

The League of Legends LCS is coming down to penultimate matches, as the four best teams in North America and Europe face off across the semifinals in the two leagues. (Stream / Schedule)

Streamer Hits Sea Of Thieves' Highest Rank, Other Fans Are Not Happy About It

Streamer Hits Sea Of Thieves' Highest Rank, Other Fans Are Not Happy About It

Sea of Thieves has a rank of Pirate Legend that was hit this past week by Prod1gyX, but some fans are claiming he didn't achieve it in a fair way.

The Pirate Legend class is not meant to be reached easily. It is the core goal of the game's lateral progression system and gives players an objective beyond the ships-and-treasure gameplay loop. To hit it, players have to hit level 50 in all three of the game's factions, which is no small task.

Enter Prod1gyX, who has been playing Sea of Thieves a lot since release. A lot. One stream of his lasted eighteen hours, which makes it no real surprise that Prod1gyX has amassed quite a group of Sea of Thieves fans eager to see him become the first player in the world to hit Pirate Legend.

The demo runs from from March 31 through April 3 with a selection of characters from the full roster. A number of characters have been added since the game's last demo, but it isn't known which ones will appear in this weekend's global test punch.

You can go ahead and download the client now ahead of it going live. It might be a good chance to see how you like ARMS after all its updates or just something to play around with over the weekend with people online.

Weekend Warrior – Easter Edition

Weekend Warrior – Easter Edition

Happy Easter weekend everyone! If you're not into all of the commotion with bunnies and eggs, that's ok too; it's still a great weekend to play some video games! Here's what some of the Game Informer staff is up to on this deceptively cold spring weekend.

Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – And from seemingly out of nowhere… AN AVALANCHE OF GAMES! I did, in fact, finish Pokémon Omega Ruby last weekend, so now I’m playing through Far Cry 5 and MLB The Show 18. Both games have their flaws, but I’m enjoying them. In addition, I’d like to finish Yakuza Kiwami prior to the launch of Yakuza 6 next month, but that’s looking less and less likely at this point. Also, I might spend a lot of time looking at my phone this weekend, as I’ve been putting some significant time into Marvel Strike Force this week, and Pokémon Go launched its quest system today. Thankfully, I don’t have any plans this weekend, so I should have plenty of time!

Fortnite Mobile Adds Tip To Stop Playing In Class

Fortnite Mobile Adds Tip To Stop Playing In Class

Fortnite mobile is making life hard for teachers as classroom after classroom succumbs to its spell. Now, Epic has a loading screen message about it.

The little message, which reads "Mr. Hillman says stop playing in class" has been added to the game's loading screen and was posted today by Fortnite's community manager K.L. Smith. It is a reference to a now-deleted Reddit post from the Fortnite subreddit which read:

Since mobile came out my students won’t stop playing in class. Idk if it’s possible, but I told them I’d write you and they didn’t believe me. Could you add this to the loading screen for a couple days to mess with them?

Date Death In Let It Die Spin-Off Let It Date

Date Death In Let It Die Spin-Off Let It Date

While mystery still surrounds the nature of Let It Die's upcoming event involving content for Killer7, Grasshopper Manufacture has announced an even more... interesting idea with Let It Date: a dating simulator that will release as its own game on PlayStation 4.

Players will be able to ascend the Tower of Barbs not through skill, but with style as they experience the game's unique brand of dialogue by romancing main characters from Let It Die. We're not entirely sure who will be "dateable" other than Uncle Death, but whatever waifu or husbando you choose to court in Let It Date, there's nothing quite like making the reaper your senpai when he's viewed you as his own for so long.

Be sure to check out Daniel Tack's review for the game to see why it made Elise Favis' list of the greatest modern horror games. You can also read our interview with the mastermind (Suda51) behind it all.
