In recent times, my compulsion to play has revolved around a desire…

The season of giving thanks is upon us once more, and it is time to once again discuss what we’re thankful for when it comes to our favorite hobby.  My whole life has been consumed by one drastic change after another, but never before has this been more apparent than now, when the entire world…

A Tale of Two Fallouts

When the “One Wasteland for All” patch was released for Fallout 76 in September, despite my best efforts, I was pretty darn excited.
