Played a bit of Luxuria Superbia, as in, tried for a few minutes to figure out what the hell it was about. Then accepted that this was just junk, and moved on. 1/5. From my MGS review:
"So that was the weirdest and most psychedelic experience I've had, playing a game. Or was it a game? I don't know. You just click, trying to make four lines of color grow wide. At some point the game told me I lost? I tried again. I clicked more, that game liked that. I didn't.

Weird music. Colors. Eyes. Flags. Being inside a flower? If that's your thing, go for it."

Gave Runner2 a go again. Its an endless runner. Nice presentation of the game, but gameplay ultimately is so uninteresting for me. I can do endless runners for a few minutes if they have a nice setting and presentation (Like Canabalt), but this one, while well done technically, had been pulled through a rainbow coloured unicorn and given cutesy 3D models, and that wasn't too my liking. 2/5.

In Topic: 27" iMac Update: 10th Gen Intel Chips, RDNA GPUs, 10Gb Networking, and more

You have to wonder if Apple are lowering the bar for GPUs on purpose, since their in house ones that we will get with AS SOCs, aren't that great in comparison. Or we will get a full Big Navi jump, and that, along with the rest of the SOC, will be such an enormous power boost that Apple we be all "5x faster GPU performance!!!" just to push the AS SOC shift. I wouldn't put it against them.

Personally I am in for a major upgrade (Writing this on my 2011 Mac mini, after my 2011 iMac GPU died for good), and I can live with the 2011 Mac Mini for macOS for a long time, and build my first Win machine, if AS SOC machines turn out to be really lousy for gaming, at Apple prices.
