 Life is hard and so are videogames. So when you do a tough thing, take pride.

Steam Charts: Pretty Broken Edition

I'm nothing if not a hypocrite. Week after week I lament you utterly awful people buying the exact same five games again and again and again and again and again and again and again. This week I shall lament people buying games that barely even exist. Hold my hand, let me walk you through this most peculiar of weeks, and into oncoming traffic.

We’re also introducing two new voices this week. Who are these strange…
