Genshin Impact is the new benchmark for free-to-play mobile games, out now

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play RPG that has been frequently compared to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, thanks to a similar cell-shaded art style. As you would expect, many gamers have been eagerly anticipating the release of Genshin Impact, and now that it’s here, it would seem the wait was actually worth it. Sure, this is a free-to-play release. It’s also a gacha game. So all of the typical underpinnings of F2P titles are here. Thankfully genuine care was taken to craft an enjoyable game that doesn’t teeter too far into pay-to-win territory, resulting in a game that’s not only worth playing but elevates the F2P field by setting a high benchmark that’s going to be tough to beat.

German and Italian Design, BMW and 3T Cycling, Spawn a Gravel Worthy Bike

If you don’t know much about the bike world, anytime a company has the word cycling in its title, they usually do things on a different level. 3T Cycling has a heritage dating back 1961 as one of the leaders in lightweight cycling.

Their initial products were composed of aerospace grade aluminum, but nowadays the use of carbon fiber composites has become the main material. Their products are usually found under some of the best Tour-de France athletes.

But what do they have to do with BMW. Frankly not much. BMW probably just wanted to offer their customers a certain something something for their would-be customer. Maybe, it’s all about the marriage of two companies to spawn a beautiful child. And I must say this offspring gets a huge like from me.

The last thing we need is for the auto industry to ‘get back to normal’

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the world how quickly life can go from normal to chaos. Many are aching to return to a state of normalcy, but being forced to face one existential threat has a way of illuminating the very real dangers of humanity’s primary existential threat — climate change. 

Those who know that returning to old ways is not an option are using this pandemic as an opportunity to press the reset button. Businesses and individuals alike are reflecting on their actions and thinking about how to implement changes. As one of the major contributors of greenhouse gas emissions, it’s time for the auto industry to put the pedal to the metal and work towards real change, not just shallow benchmarks.

This week is no different as we explore all that’s good about this week’s test drive, namely the 2020 BMW 8-Series. Delivered in convertible dress and featuring a special paint scheme, our 840i turned heads the moment it arrived.

First introduced in 1990 and lasting until the 1999 model year as a coupe only, the 8-Series was BMW’s flagship model in the luxury performance market and available only as a two-door coupe. After being dormant for 20 years, BMW brought back the 8-Series “second generation” in 2018 in coupe, convertible and four-door grand coupe trims. The new 840i is joined by two siblings, the M850i (coupe starts at $111,900) and M8 (convertible starts at $142,500). These latter two
