Jeff Kaplan Nearly Revealed a New Character during 10 Hour Stream

Kaplan

December 24, 2017 saw a very odd Twitch stream done by the Overwatch development team. This could be defined as a massive trolling event or a work of art, I’d go for the former. Jeff Kaplan decided to make an appearance sitting near a fireplace… For 10 hours.

This transmission happened without much fanfare, soon everybody was flocking to the Twitch Stream to watch Jeff Kaplan sitting down and doing absolutely nothing. Also accompanying Jeff were some prop cookies and milk and an Overwatch mug which was revealed to be empty.

I mean, it’s obvious that some sequences during the stream were repeats of others. So Mr. Kaplan surely should’ve left his seat every now and then to spend some time with his family. The transmission itself managed to reach up to 40,000 people with clearly nothing better to do.

There were some highlights that happened during the transmission. Some of them include the moment where Jeff cleaned his glasses after being hit by a boom mic, when he played Hearthstone on his phone, he also received a phone call, and even lit the fireplace with a clap.

The most hilarious highlight must’ve been when Jeff unwrapped a gift. Just beside him was a purple wrapped gift that had a framed picture of Genji saying “I need Healing”.

The frustrating part came near the end when Jeff decided to give a Christmas gift for the fans of the game. He begun talking about a new character that’s going to join the roster in the near future. However, the real troll moment came during his “Announcement”.

So, Jeff said “To say thank you to all of you, me and the Overwatch team are very excited and proud to announced that the very next hero will be-“ And then the stream cuts to a “Technical error” where Jeff suffers a massive lag spike or probably got hacked by Sombra just to add salt to the wound.

And that’s it, Jeff left his seat after 10 hours and the new hero was still unannounced. Everybody has been thrown for a loop and probably got the biggest troll in Christmas Eve. You can watch the full stream right here or look at the highlights with this video below:

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

The new game from Danganronpa’s developers is being published by Aniplex, a Sony company, but it won’t be coming out on PS5

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

The photo mode in Alan Wake 2 on PS5 doesn’t hold many surprises

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.

There will be an update for Elden Ring next week that sounds pretty important. The patch will come out on June 20, right before Shadow of the Erdtree goes live on June 21. “New features” and “balance adjustments” are what FromSoftware says the update will have.

Luckily, the developer went on to give more information. We went ahead and put them all together in the patch notes below:

New parts of inventory:

  • Items that were just gained will have a “!” next to them
  • There is now a new tab called “Recent Items” that lets you look at items that you just got

What’s new in Summoning Pool?

  • Now, active summoning pools will follow you to NG+
  • The newly added Map Functions Menu now lets you turn on and off individual summoning pools
  • When you use the Small Golden Effigy, it will only choose active Summoning Pools

All new hairstyles:

  • The game now has five more hairstyles to choose from. You can choose them when you make your character, with the Clouded Mirror Stand, or with Rennala’s Rebirth feature.
    FromSoftware also says that the patch will have extra features that aren’t listed here. I hope they’re a pleasant surprise!
