Ninja, Alinity, and xQC got into it on Twitter recently, and pretty much everyone tuned in to watch. It sparked a larger conversation about toxicity online that we have to break down. We also ask whether EVO is gone for good, and can a Fallout TV series be any good? Ric’s got a list of gaming speedrun world records, and we’ll try to guess whether the actual times are over or under. All of that and more on this week’s CheckpointXP On-Demand!
