A few months back I was in hospital, so to pass the time I stare writting feature pieces and mainly posted them here. Everyone was lovely and really supportive, it gave me the motivation to keep going. I even got some inspiration for the people here when it came to deciding what to write about. Anyway today I got published by Vice (https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/evjgdj/the-unexpected-legacy-of-dogs-life-aka-grand-theft-auto-with-dogs).

Thanks for being an awesome community (we should take more time to take stock of just how generally positive this place is).

Saw the piece earlier and read it. Reminded me of Brad reading his old gamespot review on UPF. It's great stuff about an obscure and special game. Didn't realize it was written by someone from the GB community.

Congratulations and thank YOU for writing this! It's good stuff.
