Ion shock

I’m not going to lie to you all, I’ve been in a state of shock all day. From the moment I woke up until the seconds I’m typing this. The American elections are over, and I genuinely feel sick to my stomach. It’s all just too much. I’d say something funny or witty about it, but I’m not sure I can. Instead, you can watch me and Matthew being silly on live national TV yesterday (4:43 and 31:20).

In news today: Metro 2033 sequel in the works for 2017, Vivendi edges closer to Ubisoft takeover and Mass Effect: Andromeda ditches class, changes gameplay and reworks morality.

In Other News: Fight on wings in SFV, Netflix to do something with Ubisoft IP maybe and XCOM 2 gets controller support.
