I won a round of The Culling 2's battle royale before my parachute even opened

Battle royale game The Culling 2 has arrived on Steam, just six months after work on developer Xaviant's original BR game, The Culling, was halted. Today, I jumped into my first match of the Culling 2 and hung around the in-game lobby, waiting for other players to join. A few minutes later, the match began, and roughly 15 seconds after that I was declared the winner. It happened so quickly my parachute hadn't even opened yet. You can watch the entire 'match' above or here on YouTube. Audio is helpful so you can hear the announcer excitedly crown me the victor as I'm still in freefall.

GTA 5 Warfare mod adds 20v20 military-themed showdowns

It does look pretty good though, and once you've installed it there's a fair bit of flexibility involved. You can pit your two teams (yourself and 39 NPCs, in case it isn't clear) against one another in a variety of pre-set Los Santos environments, or else create an arena yourself.

Destiny fans raise $50,000 in 30 minutes, forcing charity stream hosts to tattoo their butts

GuardianCon is an annual two-day gaming convention held in Tampa, Florida, but for many people the event is all about the week-long charity livestream marathon leading up to the convention itself. GuardianCon 2018 kicked off its 'Charity Blitz' earlier this week, with all proceeds going toward St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and it's seen a bunch of fun streams since, with many streamers offering amusing donation milestones like shaving their eyebrows or wearing flamboyant cosplay. At the time of writing, the event has raised over $1.7 million of its $2.4 million goal (the daily operating cost of St. Jude).
