Fine, fine, let's talk about a game that requires a graphics card for the first time today. RPS: bridging the hardware generation gap. Walker's currently busy pirouetting around Just Cause 2's lavish island for an upcoming Wot I Think (we had some technical problems with the review code, I believe, hence the short delay), but as the entirety of Twitter seems to be talking about what they're up to in it, let's showcase some of The Crazy right now.

In what insane fantasy world is throttling anyone to 128 kilobyte per second download speeds of an evening acceptable customer service? It's like repeatedly punching a man in the stomach as he tries to eat. Nnng. Hopefully I can finally play this electric videogame of ultimate possibilities tomorrow. Tomorrow. Boom. Tomorrow. Boom. Tomorrow.
