Twitch’s New Hot Tub Category Is Full Of Parodies, Fakes, And Scams

Last week, Twitch finally responded to controversy surrounding the so-called “hot tub meta” by clarifying its rules and creating a new section called Pools, Hot Tubs, and Beaches. Given that many complaints about hot tub streams stemmed from the idea that they represented a “loophole” in Twitch’s rules, it has certainly been something to watch people cannon ball into the new section and immediately stretch the definition of “hot tub stream”—or even just “stream”—to its breaking point.

Check out this PS1 demake of The Witcher 3

By Dom Peppiatt, Monday, 15 February 2021 16:56 GMT The Witcher 3 is over five years old now, and even though it’s getting on (in ‘game years’) people are still finding new ways to celebrate its most iconic moments.One of the game’s most iconic moments, without a doubt, is the Geralt bath scene – you know the one. It’s where our gruff, often mono-syllabic hero takes off his armor and enjoys a nice long soak in a big ol’ tub in Kaer Morhen. Refreshing.It’s been meme’d to high hell, of course, but many of you are still finding a laugh…

The Witcher 3 loads crazy fast on Xbox Series X

By Alex Calvin, Tuesday, 3 November 2020 17:58 GMT It looks like the upcoming Xbox Series X version of The Witcher 3 loads very quickly.That’s going by a video posted by YouTube user rubhen925 – as spotted by the @_XboxNews Twitter account – which shows the silver-haired and incredibly sexy Geralt zapping from one part of The Witcher 3’s world to another in just seconds.

There’s Twilight fan fiction in The Witcher 3

I was today years old when I discovered that The Witcher 3 has Twilight fan fiction – and CD Projekt Red is Team Jacob. A Reddit user named herrick17 recently shared a post titled, “I think I found a Twilight reference lol.” At first I was sceptical – “think” is not the strongest word in the dictionary.But then I had a look, and, as it turns out, it’s not just a reference. It is 100%, unequivocally, absolutely Twilight fan fiction. Check out the screenshot below, which shows a passage from an in-game book called “Moribundia: The Vampire’s Last Likeness.”“Thereupon Isabella…

Did you know you can get Jon Snow’s sword in The Witcher 3?

I’ve played hundreds of hours of The Witcher 3, read A Song Ice and Fire at least two times through, saw Longclaw in both, and never for a second thought to connect them. It wasn’t until I saw it on Reddit that I finally realized: Geralt of Rivia can get Longclaw! Or at least a sword with the same name as it – I’m not quite sure Valyrian steel exists in The Witcher 3, but surely Viziman steel is close enough.Check out the photo below, which a Reddit user named DirtyDirtbike shared online earlier today.+10% chance to dismember?
