Admittedly my usage of Google+ has dwindled significantly over the course of the last year or so, but I always enjoyed it. This has been a good place to meet like-minded people and have good conversations. Oh well, yet another Google app/service is soon to be shutdown.

If you want to keep up with me or chat about movies, video games, or tech related things I'll be spending my social networking time over on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ztowens

I may still share some things here now and then before the end, but if not, I guess this is farewell! It was fun while it lasted!

This week we discussed Red Dead Redemption 2 without talking about the story at all. We also briefly discussed some initial impressions of Fallout 76, and we went over Nintendo's Smash Bros Ultimate direct!

We've spent some time with Assassin's Creed Odyssey via Project Stream so we're discussing what it's like to stream the game...

Just started a new blog and wrote up a review for the action, thriller film Mandy! Let me know what you think? Also, what did you think of the movie?

Well, it's official: Google+ is going away.

This makes me very sad. Even with all the ups and downs over the years, G+ has remained a vibrant and thriving community where I've connected with countless interesting people -- people who are as passionate about gadgets, systems, and other geekery as I am and who love discussing and debating those things in respectful and intelligent ways. As I'm sure I don't have to tell you, that kind of community is incredibly rare and difficult to find.

I can't say I'm entirely surprised Google is pulling the plug at this point, all considered, but I'm still extremely disappointed. But, alas. Here we are.

G+ isn't set to sunset until next August, so we have some time. And I'll stick around for now, as long as other folks are still here. Looking forward, though, the absolute best way to keep up with me, stay connected to what I'm doing, and stay in touch is via my weekly newsletter: https://www.androidintel.net

I'm also on Twitter, if you'd like to connect there as well: http://twitter.com/jrraphael

This has been a wonderful experience, and that's 100% because of all of you. Thank you for creating such a lively, fun, and thoughtful community within these virtual walls. I will really, truly miss it.
