There is a problem in the brony community that has been seen in the need of an addressing. As time went by there have been allegations towards certain people in the fandom about various crimes committed by certain people.

Today we’ll focus on a disturbing case that has been starting to pick up a bit of steam and tension. This is the case of a Brony Analyst named ToonKriticY2K. This user (Also known as Zak Kayes) is in the middle of some hot water due to allegations of pedophilia.

The evidence presented to back up these accusations shows the offender grooming a 14-year-old girl in a series of erotic role plays. There is no shortage of screenshots that show this sort of behavior as there are over 500 of them.

Not only that, but the behavior has been shown to have happened consistently, with at least 2 other victims involved; potentially revealing a modus operandi in the way he performed these acts.

According to the screenshots, ToonKriticY2K had these Roleplaying sessions for well over 13 months. ToonKriticY2K groomed the victim until she finally apparently began to fall for him. The relationship continued to the point where the analyst started to send pornographic images to her, and solicit nude pictures of the victim; actions that took an already troubling situation into an unquestionably illegal one, if true.

All of this continued for some time until a recent call was made by Josh Scorcher (Firebrand), and other people among ToonKritic’s now ex-friend circle, where they talked to him about the allegation and tried to convince him to turn himself in to the authorities:

At the time of writing, no confirmation of arrest has been made by anyone. ToonKritic made most of his accounts private and unreachable and allegedly went into hiding; however, the reaction of the community at large exploded.

People prominent in the Brony Community like Lily Peet, Minty Root and other YouTubers have soon made their own essays about the whole situation. More testimonials about ToonKritic’s behavior started popping up as well.

Now, this is the part where I have to stress that so far these are allegations, though some have been admitted to by ToonKritic himself in the previously mentioned conversation with his former friends. Even then, some allegations remain to be admitted to or proven at all.

However, if we look back at the amount of accusations, we can see that some of them date back to as far as 2006. For those interested on the evidence surrounding ToonKritic, I took the liberty of taking the most damning screenshots and placing them in a folder in my Cloud.

While this will put the Brony Community on high alert for other abusers, there is another aspect of the fandom that needs addressing in order to keep stories like this from happening ever again.

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.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
