However, there’s no clarity as to why the order was issued.  Day 10 #EIADissentDiariesWelcome to the (un)free stateYou've been living here, just unaware, for years.https://t.co/HhjdfsPhz2 (Jio actually spells death) For those of you lucky few who still can, checkout https://t.co/FYISshaybw to send/encourage…

This annoying Call of Duty: Warzone bug is absolutely killing me
Jul 14 2020


I was never a fan of the Call of Duty franchise, but its battle royale format, Warzone, has won me over. I love its pace, the fictitious city of Verdansk where battle takes place, and all the little details like custom loadouts and infinite respawns that make the gameplay so dynamic. I also appreciate the fact it’s free-to-play (even though you’ll probably end up buying the full game if you care about leveling up your weapons). But there’s one thing about Warzone that absolutely infuriates me: it’s painfully easy to get irreversibly stuck at any random spot. Protip: Don’t go prone while using a Buy Station…

Jul 14 2020


It hasn’t even been a full month since The Last of Us Part 2 came out and set the console gaming community on fire with its controversial story – but Sony is already back with another first-party exclusive to cap off this console generation. Yes, it’s up to Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima to be the actual last big Sony-published PlayStation 4-exclusive, before we move on to the PlayStation 5 era later this year.

Here’s how to scan a QR code on an iPhone
Jul 14 2020


Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff. Get comfortable and let me spin you a yarn you’ll one day tell your children. Last week, I went out for lunch. It does get better. Anyway, the cafe I went to had taken COVID precautions and removed all physical menus. In their place was a QR code stuck on each table. The idea was you scan it and are directed to a PDF of the menu online. I huffed and puffed about how irritating…
