Fake News
« on: 23 Aug 2017, 11:54 »

I dunno man, I kind of have been drawing a blank recently, in terms of new stuff to write about.

And some of the stuff on the new IGS is... well, it's like what the mainstream media looks like nowadays compared to The Onion, as opposed to what mainstream media looked like compared to the Onion ten years ago.

There has been a definite down turn.  But I have little doubt that your skill as a journalist will 'rake' up to something. :D

Get meta with it, just start quoting the most egregious shitposters word for word.

Kind of, yeah.

Not giving up just yet, just need things to stimulate ideas.

real life news sometimes, weird things found in missions/pve, deliberate misinterpretation of bits of lore, and so on.

You'll find something along the road. Alternatively, you could take up shitposting like what someone else said. Healthy and original content :)
