Skype? What is this, 2004? All the cool people are using Slack now for communication purposes. It does literally the same stuff Skype does, but it allows for the use of custom emoticons too.

If you know me, then you’d realize that this is literally a dream come true. CUSTOM EMOTICONS 4 LIFE!

In Other News: Jade Empire is heading to iOS, Metal Gear Survive won’t cost an arm and a leg (HA), an expensive Super Mario Bros. watch, and the best No Man’s Sky mods so far.

Here’s all the news we didn’t post today because we were too busy calling each other ‘asshole’ with an emoticon of Gavin’s face.

      nothing like a cat for an ambush attack.

      We had this black and white moggy cat that would hid under the floor length table covering in the entrance and ambush anybody as they came past. Cats and dogs, he attacked from the side and fled, humans, grabbed a leg (no claws, we taught well) and hung on, would drag a few steps and then leave. Pretty cool, unless you were carrying, say, a tray of dishes or something.

    Skype works (and we use it) on my Xbox One, with Kinect for video chat. Does that not make me cool people?

      Probably lost most people at Kinect. However, video chat is an awesome way to keep up with family/friends that are kak far away.

        Does the next room count as “kak far away”?

          Might as well be in some families

        Once I do that naughty word, family tends to be far away…

      Think people will now start dropping Skype like a hot plate of MXiT.

      Microsoft went all out this week to screw it up and it seems basically discontinuing it on non-MS platforms.
