Adam Sandler and His Signature Basketball Shorts
Adam Sandler, known for his laid-back style, didn’t disappoint on the court. Sporting roomy basketball shorts and a quirky “Let Me Ask My Wife” T-shirt, the beloved actor brought his signature swag to the game. With his clean pair of Jordan Why Not .5 sneakers, Sandler proved that you don’t need flashy attire to rock the court with confidence and comfort.
Timothée Chalamet’s Street-Style Hoops Fashion
Timothée Chalamet, the epitome of post-swag chic, arrived in Celine CT-06 high-tops before surprising everyone with a fresh pair of Trae Young’s Adidas basketball shoes from Foot Locker. The young heartthrob displayed his fashion-forward approach even on the court, effortlessly transitioning from casual city jaunts to a basketball showdown with his stylish sneaker choices.
Off-Screen Friendship and Shared Fandom
Beyond their fashion statements, Sandler and Chalamet have plenty in common. Both hailing from New York City, they share a passion for the Knicks, and Safdie brothers’ films, and even appeared together in a movie. Sandler playfully referenced Chalamet’s dedicated fan base, including his own daughters, during a memorable speech at the Gotham Awards, showcasing their endearing off-screen friendship. The basketball meetup of Adam Sandler and Timothée Chalamet not only gave fans a glimpse of their basketball skills but also provided a fashion face-off worth admiring. Their choice of sneakers and personal styles exemplified their unique personalities while showcasing their love for sports and the city that binds them together.
Fall Guys went free-to-play a few weeks ago after it left Steam and became an Epic Games Store exclusive. After the change in storefronts, the Fall Guys player count on Steam still received a huge spike, scoring almost five times as many players as it did at its peak. Unsurprisingly, it’s doing pretty good on Epic and even set a new record for active players on June 21, when Fall Guys went free.
Fall Guys Set a New Record for Active Players When it Became Free
It was a huge week for Fall Guys as they had more than doubled their previous active player record, contributing to a record number of players for the store. Epic thanked all the new players and clarified that the record number of active players referred to the cumulative number on the storefront during that day. Apparently, Fall Guys greatly contributed to the total number.
Player numbers for individual Epic Store games aren’t readily available but that is not the case on Steam. It enables people to draw conclusions about how a game is doing. According to Steamcharts, the all-time peak of players for Fall Guys on Steam was 172,026, putting the total number of players enjoying the game at 350,000.
Fall Guys Is Now Epic Store Exclusive but Is Still Played on Steam
So far, Fall Guys keeps getting significant attention on Steam, despite not being available for purchase there. It recently achieved a peak concurrent player count of over 56,500. Apparently, Fall Guys got 20 million total players during the first two days after going free to play. That kind of sudden rise in players is bound to bring about some challenges. Apparently, Mediatonic is still rolling out updates to ensure the new load of players gets handled properly.
The latest updates are really impactful. PS5 Players will be able to get into games when in a Party and teams will no longer spawn in the same place during Team Rounds. The company has also fixed some visual issues with Nintendo Switch and Spawn FX, some buttons and intro cameras, and issues with Airtime and Sweet Thieves intro cams.
Mediatonic Fixed Many Bugs That Fall Guys Had in the Past
Mediatonic fixed a bug that kept party members in the queue, even though a new player had joined the party. They also fixed visual issues like invisible tiles, control issues, and graphical corruption problems. Animation problems, communication issues, and a problem with freezing when changing controllers were all resolved as well, among other issues. Unfortunately, Mediatonic disabled the Daily Store while working on some of the more persistent issues. They then ensured the store was back online. Now that Fall Guys is getting even more popular, it is certain that it will receive more updates and fixes as time goes on.
