Pokémon Brexit just makes it so much simpler.
If you want to extend the Pokémon Brexit metaphor even further, the European Union just wants to catch ’em all (European countries) but the Team Rocket of the piece (arch-racist Nigel Farage of UKIP, and an assortment of Tories including floppy-haired twat sandwich Boris Johnson and snivelling Pob-a-like Michael Gove) want to fuck everything up, because they’re generally jerks… and the bad guys never realise they’re actually the bad guys.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
