Today, we heard about how an Apex Legends player refused to finish off a disconnected enemy despite there being $2 million on the line, development on the GoldenEye 007 remake is in jeopardy because of the war in Ukraine, and fans of the franchise are going to have to wait a little bit longer for the Halo Infinite co-op campaign beta. These are just our top stories and so read on for the rest.
Apex Legends Global Series Player Refuses To Down Disconnected Opponent For $2 Million Prize
Someone seems to have been right in the middle of an Apex Legends tournament when their connection was cut, resulting in what could have been a very easy victory for their opponent. But their opponent refused to finish them off even despite a $2 million prize pool. The player in question, ImperialHal, has been basking in the praise ever since. “Don’t shoot him. Don’t shoot him, bro! He’s crashed,” ImperialHal told his squadmates. Kudos.
Hungrybox Apologises For Attending Smash Bros. Tournament After Vomiting Blood
The player taking part in a Super Smash Bros. tournament known as Hungrybox apparently chose to attend the event after having vomited blood, attracting all sorts of ire from the community in the process. “It goes without saying I did a super fuck up today. And it was incredibly selfish of me,” Hungrybox later apologized. “It was clear I was sick in some respect. Deciding to play or even go to the venue was a massive mistake.” Let’s hope not. I’d rather not get some weird bacterial infection.
GoldenEye 007 Reportedly “In Limbo” Due To Ukraine War
Fans of the franchise have been eagerly awaiting a GoldenEye 007 remake ever since the game was released for the Nintendo 64 back in 1997. The latest update is that we might be waiting for a bit longer. According to the journalist Jeff Grubb, “GoldenEye 007 is still in limbo because of the war. 1 v 100’s team lead left Microsoft. I don’t know what that means for the game.” Unfortunately, I don’t either, but it’s probably not good.
Shroud Returns From Retirement As A Pro Valorant Player
The former professional gamer Shroud is going to be returning to esports at some point in the very near future. Shroud just announced his return from retirement as a Valorant player with the Sentinels. “This whole thing was spur of the moment over dinner,” Shroud recalled during an interview. “Like hey, Sentinels needs a fifth, do we throw your name in there? And I was like, absolutely.” Welcome back, Shroud. We missed you.
Halo Infinite Co-Op Campaign Beta Delayed
The co-op campaign beta or “flight” for Halo Infinite has been delayed. Well, technically not delayed, but pushed back which although could be conceived of as a delay, according to the developer behind the game, 343 Industries, does not in fact represent a delay. Confused? Don’t worry because everybody else was, too. In any case, contrary to expectations, the Halo Infinite co-op campaign beta will be starting today. I mean later this week. Maybe next week. We’ll see. “The team is still working on our upcoming Halo Infinite network co-op insider flight build,” Community Director Brian Jarrard said. “While we always said our ‘target was the week of July 11,’ many sites reported it simply as ‘starting July 11.’ Still hoping for this week, but it will not start today.” Jarrard gave his “apologies to folks who expected the flight today. We’re eager to get this into your hands, but we also want to ensure it’s a positive and worthwhile flight experience. Still targeting this week, but it’s day by day as work continues. Thank you for your patience and understanding.” Ahem.
