    No kidding, opened the article and thought for just a second it was Trump's doctor in the picture. Time for a break from all the news.

    I am happy with competition but the proliferation of 'clients' that I need to have to play the games I paid for is getting silly. Epic, Origin, Steam, Blizzard, UPlay... They need to have an industry get together and separate where you store your software from where you choose to pay for it!
