Can you let me know when you will be returning to sports coverage so I can go back to checking in once or twice per day? I have a lot to do today at work and all of these posts about non-sports topics are distracting because I Must Read Every Single One of Them. Whereas with the sports stuff I really only care if its… Read more

I mean, I’m not expecting every game to be capital-F fun, but this one seemed designed to actively discourage me from enjoying its gameplay. Doesn’t help that it would have been better if it was half the length. I hit about 30-40 hours in, reached a new chapter and looked up a walkthrough to see how many chapters were… Read more
