Wish me luck good people of the internet, for tonight I will do my best to assist my hairier half as he takes on Dark Souls 3. I will also be taking care of a baby who had injections today. I don’t know which is going to be more dangerous. Think of me when you rest at your bonfires.

In Other News: GTA micro transactions yield macro-money, twitter makes AI into horrible being and my approach to gaming with child has made me giggle all day.

Here’s the news we didn’t post today because we were too busy making Graeme into a meme.
