The Entire Call Of Duty Community Just Got Punked

I am now convinced that “female Call of Duty streamer” is the hardest job in the world. Nadia Amine is one of the fastest growing Call of Duty: Warzone streamers on Twitch, and there’s been a ton of controversy on social media about her meteoric rise. If you search her name on YouTube or Tiktok, the videos are filled with cheating accusations against her. Seemingly joining in on the train, last week, Call of Duty professional Doug “Censor” Martin, who is the number one ranked Vanguard player in the world right now, tweeted that he was going to start unmasking…

Pro Gaming CEO Pops Champagne With Misogynist Andrew Tate, Now On Unpaid Leave

G2 Esports CEO and cofounder, Carlos ‘ocelote’ Rodriguez, was recently caught partying with notorious internet misogynist and general piece of shit, Andrew Tate. The news provoked a huge backlash on social media, and naturally the former League of Legends pro decided to tweet through it. “Nobody will ever be able to police my friendships,” he wrote. “I party with whoever the fuck I want.” Less than 24 hours later, Rodriguez announced he’s going on two months’ unpaid leave.

Madden 23 Is So Bad, Even NFL Pros Are Dragging It

Another year, another Madden. This time around, however, EA devs promised the “most polished version” in years. The reality appears to be much different as negative reviews pour in on Steam and Metacritic. In fact, even some NFL pros featured in the game are trashing it. “First game out on Madden 23 hung 50 on a kid…don’t get it twisted tho game is still hot garbage smh,” tweeted NY Giants receiver Darius Slayton a day after its Early Access launch.

Call Of Duty Cheating Accusations Lead To Controversial ‘Hacking Exam’

Before YouTuber IShowSpeed was put under the spotlight for his toxicity, Jake Lucky, an esports commentator and the person responsible for highlighting Speed’s behavior, was also under public scrutiny.

The Biggest Gaming Disappointments Of 2021

Hell-year 2021 is almost over. It’s been a terrible year for more reasons than I can count. Pondering all the bad, disappointing, or just plain sad news that transpired within the video game industry alone is enough to make you want to jump into bed, hide under the covers, and binge on TikTok, candy, and/or Animal Crossing until you pass out. But instead of running and hiding, let’s take a moment to look back at just how awful 2021 really was, examining some of the biggest disappointments, worst trends, and just plain not-great news this monster of a year threw…

When Nintendo released the bongo drum controllers used with the Donkey Konga games and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, the company probably didn’t envision them being used in a Call of Duty game. To be fair, neither did I. But in a recent Call of Duty: Vanguard match, Twitch streamer DeanoBeano managed to amass 105 kills and assists on a pair of DK Bongos.
