A development build of Resident Evil Village has leaked online, leading to the usual flood of speculation and clickbait all over the internet as a result. There are a few things you can do to avoid spoilers. Most social media outlets like Twitter allow you to block words and accounts. Visit the blocking settings page and add this game or other upcoming releases to muted or blocked words and continue as normal to avoid spoilers.
The latest round of leaks originates from a ransomware attack on Capcom, leading to a lot of posts online about them. We’re not going to discuss them here, but what we will do is give you some help in avoiding them.
How to deal with spoilers on YouTuber
BlockTube is the best browser addon for doing this. Since there are so many low-quality YouTube channels that survive on asinine reaction videos and clickbait with zero substance, why not block them all? Enter BlockTube.
When you install it on Chrome, it will show up on your navigation bar, although may need to pin it by clicking the puzzle icon and the pin icon for BlockTube. When you open it, you will be greeted with an options page to block videos by title, as well as other parameters. Any videos that match these settings will not be shown on the site, and you will not be able to watch the video.
Simply add a video title to the box on each line, and any video matching that title will be removed. See below for some examples from my own blocks targeting “reaction” videos. In this case, just add Resident Evil Village to the Video Titles section and continue about your day.
If a video slips through the block, you can click the three dots next to a video result, or beneath the video player, and block the video or the entire channel.
If you’re a parent, this is also pretty useful for filtering out any offensive content, and you can password-protect the settings to prevent a curious child from tampering with them. You can even block the Trending page and auto-generated playlists in recommended video panes.
