In life you have to do a lot of things you don't f*cking want to do. Many times, that's what the f*ck life is... one vile f*cking task after another.

Goko Drops HTML 5 Requirement, Native iOS Apps Underway
Remember Goko? Let me refresh your memory: last August they launched their much anticipated port of Dominion and it crashed harder than the Hindenberg. What was supposed to be a HTML 5 release that could be played cross-platform in any browser ended up being unplayable on any platform. It got to the point that any post that mentioned Goko news raised everyone's hackles.

Well, hold on to your hat, folks. Owen at Pocket Tactics is reporting that HTML 5 is going out the window for Goko and they are working on native iOS apps for Dominion and CATAN. Turns out Goko has a new CEO and a new strategy.

Not a lot to go on at this point, but I believe Brad is hoping to get some more info when he's at GenCon next week.

What does this all mean for Dominion on your iPad? Let's wait and see, but it seems to be in a better spot today than it's been in a long time.
