Here's an update on all things Conrad.
1. I'm married. Very happily I might add.
2. I never quit the internet. I did reduce my internet usage by at least 50% though.
3. Work is the same as always. I will probably start looking for a new job so that I can make more (only way to get more money in this industry)
4. Home life is better than ever! Since I got married, I'm able to put my wife on insurance, get her the meds she needs, which lets us go out more, which is why I've found new friends that we instantly grew very close to. Things only keep getting better.
5. Eating healthier? We've been doing a good job so far. Gotta keep it up though!
6. I typically walk around the park at lunch instead of napping, and I choose to stand all day at work. I need to work out more, but it's a start!
It sucks not keeping in touch with all my friends I've made on RT and other places I've stopped frequenting, but my life seems much more full and happy since I've focused more on my home life and less on my internet life.
Recommendations: All things RT! Mega64 (they're awesome), GameGrumps, JonTron (He's great), and Philly DeFranko (#PhillyD2020)
Games: Overwatch, Ark, Fortnite (closed alpha currently)... I have been playing fewer games.
IRL Games (My jam): D&D 5e (I love 4e too though!), Werewolf, One Night Werewolf, Secret Hitler, Machi Koro, Two Rooms and a Boom, Cash and Guns... too many.
(Here's my collection/ratings: https://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/Conrad500 )
Stop this shit. Please be better than the other shitty news outlets. Stop spreading bad news and using clickbait titles. I respect RT and the presenters too much to see this happen.
Most blatant example, Youtube HIDING Gaming Videos!
The problem? 100% incorrect, misleading, and purposefully clickbait title.
Youtube didn't hide gaming videos. Opting in to restricted mode restricted videos. The problem is that the algorithm is fucked (as it has been for years, this isn't new) and it's overzealous.
Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I just think this is clickbait, but I'm disappointed.
2. Stop regurgitating kotaku. You might as well use wikipedia as a source.
I use kotaku. It's the easiest, most up to date site to get all kinds of gaming news. If I ever read any articles on there about drama or controversy, I look for another source. I would not use kotaku at all if there was a reliable alternative, but I'M JUST A PLEB! You guys are a "News Outlet" and I hold your sourcing to a much higher level than my casual browsing, and even I find an alternative source for most kotaku articles I want to research!
Offender: Steam VS FAKE Games!
Still clickbaity title, but hey, i mean, it is accurate, so I can't blame you for it. That's not the issue here.
In the video there's a problem RIGHT off the bat.
First thing said after intros? "Is Steam finally cracking down on fake games... again?"
If you're Jim "Fucking" Sterling, then yeah, this is an appropriate introduction. I've never heard The Know use the term fake games on their show or reference how much of a problem this is, yet you choose to start the episode this way. Is this because of the one video about greenlight being taken down, now we have to think it's a horrible issue?
Secondly, did yall actually listen to either of the videos by TB/JS? They both heavily mention how these discussions were just that, discussions. They are talks and nothing they talked about is probably going to happen. They'll probably all evolve into a system that wasn't even discussed, because if valve is openly talking about it, you know it's not going to happen.
You present this very fluid, very future plans as if they're set in stone. After talking about them as fact you do mention that they haven't been confirmed by steam yet, but that's a much bigger bullet point in the discussion than yall make it out to be.
I get it. Yall are just doing what every other gaming news outlet is doing. And that's why I'm disappointed. I hold you to a higher standard and I've been using kotaku less because I can get my gaming news from you guys, but when you act just like them, it makes me feel like I need to start looking again.

Last Tuesday around 1A.M. my fiancee and I lost almost everything in the Houston flooding.
I am finally able to return to work after a hefty repair to my car (which thankfully didn't get flooded) went under due to driving through high waters before the main flooding happened.
My fiancee and I are ok. She is staying with her father near Dallas and I'm currently staying with my family (8 people in 1 house because of the floods now...) and I will not have a place of my own for at least 3 weeks.
We lost almost everything. I thankfully kept my PC on my computer desk, which avoided the flood (I have yet to test if the moisture in the air has ruined it) so not everything is lost, but almost everything.
Please keep us in your prayers (especially since Becca could be seeing tornadoes in the coming days...) and if you would like to help with our recovery, please check out our GoFundMe page

I will not be going to PAX South sadly, but I was able to snag a weekend pass, so it'd be a shame to let it go to waste. I'll take the best offer I can get for them, but I'd like to remake my $80 back at least (More would surely help my financial situation though!)
