Why We're Covering Operation Supply Drop and 8-Bit Salute

There are times when covering new stories can be very mundane and others that make us sit up and take notice. Today's press release from 8-Bit Salute, a games charity designed to raise donations on behalf of the US Military and allies. We'll simply let it speak for itself.
