KomodoHype Is Finally The PogChamp Emote For Twitch – We Have Arrived In The Future

Twitch had a bit of an issue to figure out when the face of the PogChamp emote, which has been spammed in chat well before Amazon came swinging a money-bag, started tweeting in support of the bizarre insurgency that many have labeled an attempted coup within the capitol building of Washington DC on January 6, 2021.

Twitch (along with third-party emote supplies such as FZZ and BTT) wasted next to no time in scrubbing the prior head of the PogChamp emote, but a rocky road was ahead as Twitch announced it would feature community faces in lieu of the former head – an idea that sounded fantastic originally.

Then, in standard modern-day Twitch fashion, they wasted no time leaping to the far side of the spectrum as the face of PogChamp was noted by some as being vehemently anti-white, a stance that some corporations seem to find more acceptable than anti-black.

This is an aspect that was debated the moment that it occurred, and the argument continues even now: Critical Bard, a writer of Critical Role, stated that ‘white lives don’t matter, at all’ then further continued that white isn’t a race, that people instead should be proud of being Scottish or Italian.

It sparked pseudo-outrage as race-baiting and arguments that are full of nuance are stripped to their bones and misrepresented on all sides to manufacture easy partisanship where the lines were drawn in the sand years ago and no new breakthroughs can apparently be made.

The event punctuated a frustrating day for Critical Bard that had the joy of wading through moronically racist tirades the entire day as a black face was given PogChamp of the day that has been cataloged through the brilliance of the internet and the rule that nothing published on the internet ever actually goes away.

Again, radicalized groups are continuing to take potshots at each other to continue race-baiting and flame-wars continue into 2021 because nothing really changes and ignorance can easily be perpetuated as thinking for oneself is, as it turns out, extremely difficult.

So as Twitch would push a new PogChamp every day, groups would scurry to find any type of dirt on the streamers that are living in front of cameras to generate some garbage controversy that results in manufactured outrage so they could keep literal bread on the table.

Not so with today’s PogChamp, KomodoHype. KomodHype may only be a temporary blessing where we don’t have to analyze social media patterns to discern who the ‘bad guys’ are and Twitch doesn’t have to spend an entire day desperately putting out fires and muting people on Twitter.

Resident Evil Village Features A Mysterious Lady Antagonist, More Will Be Revealed On January 21st

Resident Evil Village has garnered a good bit of attention since it was first teased by Capcom. They’ll looking to continue off of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, which had a compelling story that still has gas left in the fuel tank.

This upcoming installment is definitely showing a lot of atmosphere and compelling horror elements, from the mysterious castle to the chilling werewolf creatures scattered throughout the sprawling medieval setting.

What also looks particularly compelling is a woman witch that seems to be extremely tall. She was recently revealed in a teaser trailer for the game in celebration of an official event that is scheduled to take place on January 21.

That’s a couple of days away and more surely will be revealed about this character, who presumably will be one of the main antagonists you’ll have to go toe to toe with as Ethan Winters.

He was put up against some tough odds in Resident Evil 7, so it will be interesting to see what Capcom can do this time around — keeping fans on edge. This witch character is chilling and yet oddly beautiful.

Her stature definitely takes over the conversation as is evident in a couple of screenshots that have been going around from the recent teaser trailer. And yet, she’s dressed very formal as to invite you in.

You can bet you’ll want to keep your guard up around her as witchcraft and other strange events are happening around the new location that Ethan and Mia have retreated to. More will be revealed here in just a couple of days, which is exciting if you’ve been a fan of this series over the last couple of years.

Capcom really has done great work with the franchise as a hole, but just recently, they really started dialing in a successful recipe of horror and survival action. Let’s see if they can keep it going in Village, which is scheduled to release sometime later this year.

According to the developer, this game will have more open-ended environments and surprises that should keep even life-long fans excited about the future. The remakes have a lot of great elements, but it’s nice to see the developer continuing to move the story forward.

There are still so many possibilities they can take advantage of. So far, it looks like Village is one of the more unique installments in the franchise. Let’s see what else they decide to reveal here in a couple of days.
