Following in the footsteps of Ninja (opens in new tab) and Shroud (opens in new tab), a third Twitch streamer called Cory "King Gothalion" Michael is leaving the platform for Mixer. Michael has 1,014,724 followers on Twitch (opens in new tab) where he mainly streams Destiny 2 and Borderlands 3, and while he may not be as big a name as Mixer's previous gets, he has a dedicated fanbase who are likely to follow wherever he goes.

Michael has released a video in which he explains the decision, stressing the value of having "platform-level input".

"Working closer with Microsoft and Xbox is not only gonna help us propel what we're doing," Michael says, "but help us propel what's always been important to the channel, which is doing good in gaming. Everything from helping broadcasters establish themselves, mentoring growing broadcasters, raising money for charity and putting on events like GuardianCon at GCX."

Michael will be streaming exclusively on Mixer from October 29, though he says he'll still appear as a guest on streams broadcast on other platforms.

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games (opens in new tab). He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun (opens in new tab), The Big Issue, GamesRadar (opens in new tab), Zam (opens in new tab), Glixel (opens in new tab), Five Out of Ten Magazine (opens in new tab), and Playboy.com (opens in new tab), whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
