This week I have been largely taking part in The Witcher 3 Some luddite ripped the fibre optic cabling out of my property not long ago which has remaining me bereft of interwebs, with only up coming-gen Geralt for company. Sure, I have been the sufferer of an IRL DoS attack.
This month I have been mostly screening gaming laptops
I have experienced 4 unique RTX 40-collection gaming laptops on the exam bench this thirty day period, all with various degrees of desirability. From ‘oh god, no’ with the MSI Titan GT 77, to ‘oh essentially, maybe’ with the Asus Zephyrus M16. Not a rousing good results, then…

The goose is screaming as the final, distended golden egg tears its way unfastened of the ruined cloaca and plops onto the floor, its fragile shell cracking on effects. In a moment the screaming stops, the goose’s neck goes limp, its head drops, and it breathes its ragged very last breath. Just after each and every successive golden egg, the farmers pumped additional expansion hormones into the inadequate, weakened beast, right up until at very last people shiny eggs had grown so huge they tore up its insides.

Certainly, killing the goose that laid the golden eggs is a tortured metaphor for the Computer gaming industry at the instant. And sure, I have been listening to a ton of Alan Partridge not long ago.
