    Hardware Minor Xbox One controller concerns

    Yep, that is normal. Just bought a replacement blue one a few days ago, and it creaks and pops like crazy.

    Alfonso Ribeiro is suing Epic Games for using his dance move in Fortnite

    But aside from the studio owning FP, what about the hired choreographer that probably taught him the move? And the Springsteen video? I could see it maybe having traction if Epic called it "The Carlton" but this... no, just no.

    Gaming WHAT IS PORT FORWARDING? UNBLOCK YOUR PORTS NOW
