Happy Friday! I can’t believe Summer is already here! I’m going to be vacationing. A lot. Don’t worry though, you’ll still see me lurking in the forums and posting updates.
Before you read on, HaloUnity has given us a task. We have to round up 117 people to comment on this page. SIP gets $1 per person so this is a really good way of making money for the site and proving ourselves to the other communities You can read more about it in the Announcements section below.
Anyways, the house has been full of family relatives whom I haven’t seen in 4 years. I better go upstairs and talk to them, see you next week for more gaming news!
