Top 5 Weird Gaming News Stories in April
Coke Makes Metaverse Flavored Coke
Last week Coke announced it’s new limited time metaverse flavored soda. Coke has said that this flavor is inspired by “the playfulness of pixels.”
I’ve seen a ton of announcements regarding the metaverse, but didn’t expect a beverage to be a part of it. This has led me to several questions. What does metaverse taste like? What do Pixels taste like? Does this have anything to do with the flavor producing monitor we reported on months ago?
The metaverse talk felt over the top before. Now it’s just ridiculous.
Streamer Eats 17 Disgusting Meals a Day To Get Gaming System
A streamer named Savannah was disappointed when they found out that their computer wasn’t powerful enough to stream Elden Ring. Her Solution?
Eat her way to a gaming PC. Savannah had a plan. Make and eat some of the most disgusting food possible. According to Savannah, the plan was to “eating food in a cursed manner until someone buys me parts to build a gaming PC”.
One example of these fantastically disgusting meals involved blending a fried steak to make a sauce. The sauce was then put on a molded steak made from steak sauce, mayo, and gelatin.
After 17 days of eating these disgusting creations, Savannah now has her gaming PC. Now, that is dedication.
Cyberpunk 2077 at 72p is Fantastically Awful
It would be easy to assume there is a typo in the heading. There is not. Kryzzp of zWORMz Gaming set this up for April Fools Day.
Running at 720p he set the downscaling to a factor of 10x while leaving all of the graphics settings on high with ray tracing on.
The result? A blurry mess. You would think at 72p the it would run high frame rates. Due to the amount of work FSR had to do, the frame rate was surprisingly low.
Why is all of this important? Because now you know if you want to play a modern game and make it look like it is from the 80’s, you can!
You May Be Able To Eat Your Computer Chips Soon
Feng Zhao and Brandon Sueoka, researchers at the WSU’s School of Engineering and Computer Science, may have come up with a sweet solution to the silicon shortage.
The Duo took honey, made it solid, and jammed it between two electrodes with a design similar to the human synapse. This type of architecture maybe able to replace the architecture used in computers today.
If they are able to create chips out of honey they will run cooler, be more efficient, be biodegradable, and possibly edible.
