WRUP Speculation

Hey everyone, I'm back but still dealing with remnants of this irritating cold. I've been paying some attention to the new generation AMD GPU rumors and I figured I'd talk a little about that before we see what folks are playing around here. Read more

Hot as WRUP

What's up, Twinstiq folks? Happy August! Here in the northern hemisphere, we are now entering the hottest month of the year, and thanks to global warming, this August will likely be one of the hottest on record. Again. Though I suppose Covid-19 is giving most people a reason not to venture out too much at the moment. So...yay for that, I guess?

Either way, stay safe out there. What is everyone playing this weekend?

AJ’s (Non-)E3 2020 Roundup

You might have thought it would have largely subsided by mid-July; and it actually has, in many parts of the world. But here in the States, where I am, Covid-19 is currently raging out of control like a California wildfire.

First the orange imbecile refused to defer to the actual experts on the matter, then he openly opposed the most basic of safety measures, such as simply wearing a mask out in public, and now he is even going so far as to try and control the flow of information about how many cases there are.
