NBA 2K21 Arcade Edition Review -- Air Ball

Gamespot News Feed - Fri, 05/14/2021 - 23:52

Mobile versions of console or PC titles used to carry the stigma of being poor cousins, but as games like Fortnite and Genshin Impact have shown, it's possible for mobile games to be just as good as their console counterparts. At first glance, NBA 2K21 Arcade Edition seems like it will follow suit; the game looks very impressive, the action runs smoothly, and every NBA team (with full rosters) is available from the start. I thought I'd have all I need to enjoy some great NBA action wherever I went, but the more I played the more I realized what I thought would be a deep experience was instead very shallow.

NBA 2K21 Arcade is the annual basketball franchise's first appearance in Apple Arcade, and it features three main modes: Play Now, MyCareer, and Black Top. The game does a great job of bringing the impressive visuals of the NBA 2K games to iOS, with player models here looking pretty close to their real-life counterparts.

The Play Now feature is straightforward: pick two teams and play a game. The short amount of time it takes from booting the game up to playing a game is impressive, only lasting as long as it takes you to pick teams. But actually playing a game is where things get tricky, with the game's on-screen touch controls being too sensitive at best and non-functional at worst.

Hummer Loaded with Hoarded Gasoline Catches on Fire in Florida

Motortrend News Feed - Fri, 05/14/2021 - 23:37

On Wednesday, May 12, Citrus County Fire Rescue responded to an emergency call about a vehicle up in flames outside of a Citgo gas station in Homosassa, Florida. The vehicle in question was a Hummer H2, which almost burned to the ground after a man attempted to transport four five-gallon containers of gasoline.

In what appears to be an act of panic buying due to the fuel shortage along the East Coast, the occupant managed to escape with non-life-threatening injuries. According to the Citrus County Chronicle, the injured man refused medical attention against EMT advice. The call reporting a vehicle on fire near a Texaco Food Mart at South Alabama Avenue and West Grover Cleveland Boulevard came in at 10:52 a.m. Citrus County Fire Rescue arrived on the scene at 10:59 a.m., extinguishing the engulfed H2 by 11:09 a.m.

Based on the photos released by Citrus County Fire Rescue, the Hummer did not travel too far before catching on fire. How the fire got started in the first place remains unknown. What we can say is that the gas-filled containers that ultimately melted in the Hummer’s cargo area certainly had something to do with it. Although a Reddit post that has since then gone viral claims the driver lit a cigarette, the Florida State Fire Marshal is conducting an investigation and will confirm the cause.

The widely reported news of a gasoline shortage has caused people to panic and line up on the streets around gas stations a la Black Friday sale. Fear of running out of gasoline set in, and the crowds went wild. Many of these individuals have been filling up trash cans, storage bins, plastic bags, and other unsafe containers. Due to the high demand and limited supply, prices at the pump have been skyrocketing.

As most of you are aware by now, a cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline led to a shut down of services over the weekend. However, there was no need to create a stockpile of gasoline at home as several panic buyers did with toilet paper and hand sanitizer during the pandemic. Colonial Pipeline began to restore the system within days of the gas pipeline shutdown, and the only real issue was people making runs on stations and creating spot shortages before those stations could be restocked.

Furthermore, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission posted a message on Twitter urging panic buyers not to use plastic bags for gasoline. There are dozens of photos spreading online showing people shamelessly filling up inconceivable items and improper containers with fuel. Let’s keep in mind, everyone, that gasoline—and its vapors—are extremely flammable.

Do not fill plastic bags with gasoline.

— US Consumer Product Safety Commission (@USCPSC) May 12, 2021

The Colonial Pipeline stretches from Texas to New Jersey and does not run across the state of Florida. That in of itself makes this Florida case of gasoline hoarding outright foolish and hilarious. No offense to the H2 driver, but maybe it wasn’t a bright idea after all. In this situation, a quote by author and scholar Dr. Amit Abraham comes to mind: “Common sense has become an uncommon virtue.”
