Why Discord is a bad thing

The Problem With Discord
The Problem With Discord

Just like the millions (Discord, 2023) of people who use Discord daily, I quite like it. It reminds me of the old IRC days or chat rooms where people would talk about random topics until the big ball of plasma could no longer be seen. I fondly remember forums with myself running Just a Community and the same thing would happen with people talking about random topics. You might be wondering why I bring this up as surely Discord is just a replacement for those and technology changes and moves on.

Sonic Superstars

Ah, Sonic. A game series that I have a soft spot for for no real reason as the games themselves lately kinda suck. With that said when I heard about Sonic Superstars I was quite happy and eager to play it and this is my review after playing it. This review is spoiler-heavy.

With this in mind, this article is a guide on what you can try to get it working.

When it comes to the United Kingdom there is a ton wrong with it which mostly boils down to the shittest corrupted politicians we have had in a long while but one set of laws that is dumb and needs discussing is e-bike laws. It is worth saying before we carry on that scooters should be legal (but kept at the same speed limits as mobility scooters) but that’s a rant for another day. It is also worth saying this rant does not discuss insurance or taxes as while I do believe there should be no taxes I do think insurance is worth having – something I also think should apply to everything such as mobility scooters.
