You have this many minutes to consume McDonald’s French fries before they’re inedible

You have this many minutes to consume McDonald’s French fries before they’re inedible

McDonald’s french fries become notably less appealing at around the 10-minute mark, and are a big old nope by minute 18.

Time of death: 17-18 minutes

Kate got out while the getting was good. Our final two participants bailed within a minute of each other, at 17 minutes (Allison) and 18 minutes (Kevin). At this point, the fries are lukewarm at best, no longer crisp, mealy bordering on gummy, and generally unpleasant to eat. They even seemed to lose some color.

Zynga hits Q4 earnings targets as CEO says ‘turnaround is now complete’

Zynga’s turnaround: How once-beleaguered game company plans for 2019 growth

Zynga went public in 2011, and it grew quickly on the strength of social games like FarmVille. But it hit the skids in 2013, and it began going downhill. Frank Gibeau, a former Electronic Arts executive, joined as CEO in 2016, taking over from Mark Pincus, the original CEO, who replaced his own replacement, Don Mattrick, who was Gibeau’s former colleague from EA. (Did you follow all that?)

Apex Legends is great because you don’t have to talk to anyone

I had very mixed feelings when Apex Legends was announced. On one hand, Titanfall and its sequel are two of my favorite shooters, offering an incredibly fast, almost balletic sense of movement that made otherwise standard skirmishes feel fresh and alive. The idea of developer Respawn taking that to the battle royale genre and throwing in charming Overwatch-style characters was incredibly exciting. But there was one very particular aspect of the game that made me wary: you can only play it in teams. As someone who spends hours in Fortnite solo and hates the idea of voice chat with strangers, this was an instant turn-off.

Putting Red Dead Redemption 2’s 23 million shipments in context

‘Battlefield V’ didn’t sell as well as EA hoped it would

Video game sales were particularly cutthroat last holiday, and it appears EA’s Battlefield V was one of the casualties. The publisher lowered the outlook for its revenue this quarter after revealing that its sales in the last quarter of 2018 “did not perform to our expectations.” While it didn’t explicitly blame BFV for the shortfall, that was undoubtedly the company’s flagship game — it otherwise relied on sports titles and the mobile-only Command & Conquer Rivals. The firm wasn’t shy about acknowledging “intense competition” as a factor.

People aren’t into revisionist history. They want Battlefield 1943.
