    Yesterday was an eventful day for the culture surrounding two of the world's most popular games.

    Fornite’s player-base has been exploding as of late, and it just got a little bit bigger thanks to the help of one of the biggest musicians in the world right now: Drake.


    The game has been doing fine without the rappers help -- Fortnite had 3.4 million concurrent players last month making it "the biggest PC/console game in the world," -- but yesterday Drake played with popular Twitch streamer “Ninja” and hit a peak of 635,000 concurrent viewers!

    Check out the footage from the stream:

    The success of Drake and Ninja (and two other celebrities who also joined this stream) has prompted Epic Games to announce (just hours ago) that they will host a special celebrity edition Battle Royale at this years E3 event:


    Meanwhile PUBG (Playerunknown's Battleground) -- which is still gaining new players everyday, but also suffering developmentally under the strain of rampant cheating -- was dealt another blow yesterday… from a katana.

    Unlike the Twitch streamer who is a “ninja” in name only, a Washington woman thought she was a ninja in real life when she attacked her sleeping boyfriend (Alex Lovell) with a katana she bought from the mall because he “just sits at home all day playing video games and does not do anything to help.” This game, Lovell told The Oregonian, is PUBG:

    "Lovell said he had spent 12 to 13 hours a day playing and training for "PlayerUnknown's Battleground"... The long hours also required him to spend time doing exercises for his hands, wrists and shoulders and also practicing mouse moves and techniques to maximize performance.

    'I wasn't a sweaty nerd, more of an Ethlete,' Lovell said."
