Runescape

RuneScape is a browser-based fantasy MMORPG from Jagex Ltd. that has been around in some form since 2001. The game takes place in the divided land of Gielinor, where players can create their characters and advance through quests and monster hunting. While there is an overarching storyline, RuneScape is very non-linear, and includes minigames, events, guilds, PvP, and more.


Although RuneScape's roots are old, the game has had several incarnations, with each new version replacing the old. RuneScape HD, for example, a major overhaul, was released in 2008. While the basic game is free to download and play, it is limited, and a subscription will net a player more frequent (and exclusive) content updates, a player home, the ability to play full screen (free users are limited to a windowed client), and more advantages. An item shop is also available for cosmetic items.


FEATURES

  • Adventure in Gielinor | Explore RuneScape's world of Gielinor, take on hundreds of quests, and advance your character in a huge range of skills.
  • Play Minigames | Engage in a variety of minigames for XP, items, and fun!
  • Create a Clan | Create a clan and join forces with other players.
  • PvP and Events | Participate in player-versus-player combat, in-game festivals, Clan-specific events, and more.

According to Dexerto.com, Aus_Swag was asked by a friend to phone a suicidal woman "for advice and support". He did so during his RuneScape stream and, rather than offering support, "he instead simply states, 'I think you should just kill yourself'" while laughing along with other participants in the call.
