2014 Community Members Appreciation

Hey, what happened to the 2014 MotY award? Don’t those normally take place roughly a month and a half ago?

Well, my children, 2015 is here and it wouldn’t be the case if 2014 wasn’t there to help us get to where we are now (award for most obvious statement of the year goes to..). This past year we’ve seen incredible people leave their marks on our community with their selfless contributions. As a replacement to what is normally our Member of the Year award, we decided instead to take a look at 2014’s biggest contributors and figure out what they’re all about. We wanted to take our time to thank everyone that’s been a part of SIP whether past or present, and to give our MVPs a chance to talk a bit about the group and themselves. I’d like to apologize in advance for releasing a piece about 2014 three months into the next year, but it was a project that took a great amount of care and as a result, time (and some people take their sweet ol’ nannies time answering interview questions (I keed, I keed)).

If you’re interested in taking a step back and looking at what made 2014 the year that it was, please follow the link and read the full story. I know it looks like a lot of text but I assure you, it’s all worth the time to read. It’s been a great ride so far, so hope you enjoy this little community project! Thanks.

SIPWU 6.14.14 Part 3: Sony @ E3 2014

Continuing from the momentum Sony gained from last years presentation, they went even bigger with their stage presence and the offerings they’ll be bringing to gamers later this year and into the next. With the controversy of last year’s Xbox One reveal waning, fans and potential purchasers have good reason to ask and see why a PS4 should find a permanent place in their entertainment center. Sony brought their game(s), and offered plenty of reasons as to why a PlayStation 4 is a prime candidate for any dedicated gamer. Plenty of announcements to ogle at, so without further ado, here’s what they brought to E3!

It is the year 2034…
Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within.

Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever.

As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour…
