Twitter Tags: Four Games That Define Me

Hello dear readers and welcome to Shoot the Rookie. I don’t know about you but I’m finding this whole lock-down thing a bit of a de-motivator when it comes to writing proper long form posts, so instead I’m concentrating on shorter, fun, community inspired ideas!

Valentine’s Day Shipping Extravaganza!

It is clear that Valentine’s is in many ways just a big corporate mess, but for me, having a day designed to celebrate love can hardly be the worst thing that could happen, particularly in these dark days.
