I missed last week. Sorry about that. I'm not sure there was much to talk about aside from more wildfire stuff. This weekend though we have some launches to briefly check out. Read more
The entire state of CA is under a heavy layer of smoke. It's like fog here because of the Creek Fire, which is now nearing 190,000 acres; but it's slowing. The valleys are blanketed from various complex fires that are now over 400,000 acres each and it's not just CA. We're getting smoke from Oregon as well. Read more
Well, the fires are lessening locally and so is the smoke that's been hanging in the air for the last couple of weeks. It's nice to be able to get some outdoor workouts in and not feel like I've just been in the smoking section of an airplane back in the 80's. Yeah that was a thing. Read more
It's hot and there are approximately 9853187 wildfires burning all around thanks to recent lightning storms. But we're still playing games.
Hey everyone, good morning from my seat here while I sip coffee with a look of derision aimed at 505 Games. Let's talk a little about that free-not-free upgrade for Control that's taking place very soon. And take a quick look at the postal service removing mailboxes from streets. Read more
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
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?
Well. I'm sick. Not terribly sick, not with COVID. I have a stupid cold and it sucks. I had to cancel work yesterday and I may have to do the same today out of caution. Even though it's not COVID I don't want to bring some sickness to anyone else. No matter how minor. So I figured I'd come drop this WRUP off before I start making calls. Read more
Hello again friends. It's me, AJ. You haven't heard from me since way back in mid-February, when this crazy coronavirus pandemic was only just getting started. 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.
So what do those other countries have that we don't? The one thing that truly matters during any large-scale crisis - - competent leadership. 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. At this rate things will only get far worse before they begin to get any better. This is why voting matters, people. Please, please remember to always exercise your right.
But enough about that. Let's remember why we come here - - to talk about games. Specifically, what we are all playing this weekend...
Hey everyone, me again, Scrooloose with another weekend WRUPing. It's 7:30am and it's already nearing 80 degrees and I have to drive into the central valley today to get materials for building a fence. Yay. Read more
