Howdy, I'm ShakataGaNai, but you can call me Jon. You can find my everyday blog @ Obviate.io, but here's a brief run down: I am not a prolific writer of news, but I fancy myself a photographer and enjoy doing reviews.
Around here you'll mainly find me adding pictures, image credits, doing reviews & playing
