oh, that was a (subtle?) clue—among dozens of others spread across this and the next two “prereview” videos—that i had handed it my two-weeks’ resignation notice to kotaku dot com and was about to embark upon a career as an independent video creator (which started yesterday) lol

the headline has my name in it. this is not Kotaku Dot Com’s Official List Of The Ten Best Games Of The Decade, Scientifically Calculated To Maximally Enrich You The Reader’s Life. it’s me telling stories about my favorite games of the decade. if you’re not in it for those stories, the list is probably meaningless for Read more
