    I mean they've gotta make money somewhere I guess? My fiance has always been interested in getting in to journalism but the whole industry is fucked and dying because nobody pays for news any more.

    I've been playing Halo Reach pretty heavily. It holds up great, I'm really enjoying playing through the campaign. There's some issues with crouching at the moment which is kind of irritating but I'm definitely getting my moneys worth.

    Otherwise I've been playing a heap of DOOM II. I've started the Eviternity level pack which is just a master-class in amazing level design.

    I have vague hopes of this (or its successor) becoming my daily driver one day. Most of what I do is web based these days. The only app I really can't part with would be Signal so if someone can figure out how to make that work I think it'd be possible for me.

    This seems like one of those things that is great on paper but doesn't pan out in reality.

    I did not realise they had a release date for this and then I woke up to an email from Steam saying it's out. Gotta say, it feels REALLY good!

    I've run a few games on Rolegate. It works really well and it's optimised for mobile. Most of them have sort of petered out after a while though as people forget to post or lose interest and disappear on you.
