    This one is distributed through Steam comments, apparently. The scam pretends to giveaway a skin but instead steals your credentials. Details over at .

    Mud sticks and TG really needs to start penalising people that create a dispute against a score with zero evidence. "That's impossible", "my friend can't achieve that", "my friend can only achieve that with TAs" and "I don't believe it" are reasons ...

    Unsurprisingly, I'm back at zero submission points again. RL circumstances prevent me from reviewing much but still have plenty of spare time for gaming. The queue of PBs is mounting - 3900+ documented and this would soar beyond 5000 if I were to find the time to finish documenting the outstanding ...

    Another Ingress challenge is over - another 11 day window to achieve a set goal within the game. This challenge had some convoluted rules to how it was being scored and was based on the optional Glyphing portion of Hacking the portal network (the primary way to gain inventory). Glyphing is a mini-game ...
