  1. Phasing Out TGN News

    I'll mention here and now that the news posts that went up near daily will more than likely be coming to an end soon.

    I'd rather I shifted focus to more original content than copy and pasting things everyone already gets at a million other sites.

    I'll hopefully have more on this soon. The more nuanced post will probably go up in the Announcement section here along with a main page posting.

  2. The Post About JonTron Being Racist and Colin Moriarty Being Sexist

    Recently, JonTron went in hard on supporting racist sentiments that culminated in him making incredibly racist and xenophobic remarks last night on Destiny's Twitch stream. We also have Colin Moriarty, the now former employee and co-founder of Kinda Funny Games, who "resigned" from the company following a series of politically ignorant and sexist remarks on Twitter these past few months. Moriarty's fate seemed sealed after a particularly sexist Twitter comment was met with some rather substantial and deserved backlash. Remember that he posted this on International Women's Day, a yearly event that celebrates women's rights movements. ...

    Hey everyone, this is just a quick update about some of the issues we've had recently with the site.

    Near the end of December our domain had expired. Tim and I had not realized this for longer than we care to admit. I just saw that the site up and died one day. He thought maybe something broke on the server we were on. Then he realized (after moving our site to an entirely different server location) that our domain had expired. Whoops.

    We, once again, had to contact MyIS to renew it. By "we" I mean that Tim did that. No, I do not know why MyIS still controls that. No, ...

    Yesterday, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was released to the public. It didn't take long at all to notice that the game also included a handy "Shop" button right on the main menu of the game.

    Opening it revealed microtransactions that allow players to spend real money in order to buy in-game items such as Praxis Kits (used to gain new abilities) and the in-game currency. Frankly, it's pretty damn disgusting to see this. There is no reason why there should have been any microtransactions included in the game.


    Yes, the argument will undoubtedly be ...

  5. Week in Review - E3 2016 Edition

    As you may have already figured, there will not be a "Week in Review" for this past week or even for these past two weeks. E3 took up far too much time and no new games were played.

    Actually, that's not 100% true since I did start to play the Far Harbor expansion for Fallout 4 prior to E3. It isn't terrible but it certainly still has that Fallout 4 jankiness that I hated from the core game. That's about all I'll really say on that for now, at least until I actually force myself to play more of that DLC. I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but there may very well be weeks that are intentionally (not like how I screwed ...
