Kind of a low-key sucky day for myriad reasons. I don’t even know why I’m telling you this.

It doesn’t matter, I still get fucking shot in the back of the head two seconds after I pick it up.
Which #HaloInfinite weapon are you reaching for first?

I’ve always been a big proponent of cross play, but in this case add me to the list of Xbox gamers who would like the option to disable it in #HaloInfinite so we can play in our safe little console bubble without having to worry about PC cheaters/hackers. apple.news/AN9uzRlY9RkKGMMOn…

40 years ago today, these amazing people brought the BBC Micro to the world. Like so many others of my generation, this computer led to a lifelong love of computers, tech and a career in IT. Thank you to all at Acorn for making this possible! Happy birthday, Beeb :-) #BBCMicro

I really need to be writing because I’m on deadline but so far all I’ve done today is deal with endless mundane administrative tasks that cumulatively chip away at my time. I bet JJ doesn’t have to put up with this kind of bullshit. He’s better than me though so fair enough.

Sexiest things my husband has said to me today, parenthood edition: “Stay in bed, I’ll get her to school.” “Here, I brought you your Switch.” “I washed all the bottles.”

Dropped from a couple of ranked lobbies in #HaloInfinite because the game kept putting me on teams where we were a player short (3 vs 4) and now I’m banned? lol ok maybe instead of that fix your matchmaking system so players aren’t sent to the slaughter.

Also because I didn’t read up on how the new @FallGuysGame cross-progression works prior to linking my Epic account (as I assume most won’t) I logged into the “wrong” platform first which led me to losing a bunch of crowns. THANKS EPIC

This is a really fun and IMO overlooked game, I'm glad Game Pass will introduce it to a wider audience.

My favorite new YouTube series is this guy who plays online games until he encounters a really toxic trash-talking player, then challenges them to a 1v1 and has a top esports pro sit in for him and crush them invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=aeZIjncL…

Makes me worry about hackers too, which I’ve read is already a problem. That’s the one disadvantage of cross play I guess, console players can no longer feel secure in their cheat-free (or at least harder to cheat) bubble.

With cross play always turned on, you never know what PC players you're matched up against. That keyboard/mouse advantage is real. So, maybe it's not you, you're probably awesome.

I watched a video of Rocket League pros and I’m never playing that game again.
