Dear followers.

I’ve been thinking.

Ever since Bowling announcing his venture project Robotoki, I’ve been wondering if we, as a collective, should report on any news we find about its projects.

While I understand we’re first and foremost a Call of Duty blog, we feel obliged to help Bowling get the word out on tumblr about what he’s cooking up as a sort of thank you for putting up with the faceless, nameless and harsh individuals of the internet for so long.

What do you think? Should we do it?
