SIPWU 4.19.13

I’m back and with my fluffy hat!

So I’m the Spring MVP eh? I never saw that one coming. Then again I never saw the bombing of Boston coming as well, my heart goes out to all who were affected.

I do bring an update on that. After what seemed like a chase that was never going to end the Boston police finally caught and arrested the 2nd suspect. It sounds like Boston will be able to finally breathe again.

Enjoy the update guys and gals (mostly guys). And remember kids, drugs are bad m’kay? Don’t go out tomorrow and do something stupid that you will regret the rest of your lives.

SIPWU 4.12.13

Herro everybody!

Seems like everytime I try and post a SIPWU something always happens when I press “Publish” like a surprise computer update or the battery on my laptop runs out. Besides that, I’ve had a pretty awesome week full of projects. It’s crunch time at my school and every teacher is throwing projects at me left and right until Finals start….

School ends in four weeks for me though, I’ll be in Missouri catching Bass and eating fried catfish for four weeks with grandparents and cousins. I seriousley can’t wait any longer!!!

While I’m daydreaming about how much fun I’m going to have, read the update. Pokenut knew I had a lot on my plate this week and helped out….A lot. PeasAreEvil also wrote a short review on Halo 4’s Castle Map Pack.

See you all next week!

SIPWU 4.5.13

Good news, It’s finally Friday! Do you know what’s even better?


Did anyone fall for the fake modz chamber stunt on April Fool’s? Major props to staff. I can’t believe how much effort was put into that stunt and I hope I wasn’t the only one who fell for it.

Anyways, the lights just blew a circuit or something because I now have no lighting in my room. You guys can read the update while I fumble around in the dark looking for a light bulb.

SIPWU 3.29.13

Hey guys. I hope you are all having a good friday haha!

This update is filled with just about every kind of gaming news imaginable. New game announcements, map packs, and screenies!

I’m really looking forward to what Forge Island has to offer. That thing looks huge (TWSS). Does anyone have plans this week? My grandparents are in town so we are running around town for the day.

I’m still trying to fend off the massive hoard of WordPress zombies in the Communique. I think I banged LGOPs arm up a little in the process (maybe if he wasn’t running at me screaming brains I wouldn’t have hurt him). Don’t worry though, they won’t be lurching around in the forums. I got them all tied up downstairs in the basement. Hopefully they will be back soon….Considering they don’t eat each other.

As I was posting this I witnessed a guy in a brand new Escalade make one expensive mistake and crashed while trying to turn left into a busy intersection. The drivers are ok but let this be a lesson to all…

Don’t SIP and drive.

SIPWU 3.22.13 – Beatle Style!

*Intro provided by Beatle not Arby lol.

Why am I the only one to work on the SIPWU? Simple, Ham and the others have been attacked by zombies (that may or may not have come from WordPress). I’m the only one left because I was away on a donut run (we take turns and today was my week).

More for me!

I’ll rescue them later, I have a dozen donuts and a lot of news to go over by myself. This week we have a milestone, a contest, and a very special interview by someone nicknamed “The Voice of Halo”.

You may have also noticed the lack of color this week. The next couple SIPWUs may be like this until we can get used to how WordPress works.

If you don’t like it….Don’t be surprised when you find a zombie at your door.

Get reading and have a happy Friday!

SIPWU 3.15.13

That’s what I woke up to this morning. It’s blurry (sorry) but if you look close enough you will see a giant rabbit. Yes, I’m fully aware that it’s trapped in a window well. How it survived the fall I’ll never know, but he was jumping around and was going ballistic while my mom (whom I thought was going to burst into tears) was screaming at me to get it out quick before it hurt itself.

As funny as it would of been to open the window and let it run around in the house I got my gloves and climbed down to rescue him. I’m happy to say that the little guy is free again, hopping in the fresh/fine grass or whatever it is rabbits do. I blame my dad for leaving the dog outside.

So that’s my story. I’m such a good person right? Anyways, we have a TON of news to go over so I’ll stop talking.

Oh and one more thing.

Protip: Try not to fall into any window wells while reading this update. I may not be around with my gloves at the time to set you free.

[color=white]SPRING BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And it’s raining. No. Storming outside.

Not that I had plans to go outside or anything…

As you are about to see, we have been pretty busy with this update. The news just kept pouring in! LGOPs and myself were busy adding stuff while Arby and Snake were making sure things looked alright when we post this through WordPress (Have no clue what I’m talking about? See the Announcements section). It’s definitely harder than it looks but were still learning. I predict smooth sailing from here on out.

Before I go, I just wanted to say new front page will go live Saturday! As soon as it does please spam Arby and the staff members with thank you’s. They spent hours and hours of time perfecting it.

With that said, on to the update! Have a wonderful Spring Break everyone![/color]

SIPWU 3.1.13 – This update is “fresh” from the Thrift Shop

[color=white]Happy Friday everybody! It’s been a long week, but we survived.

In celebration, here is this weeks SIPWU. I bought it from the thrift shop next door. The lady said it was fresh but it has this weird green stain on it…In fact, that could be what’s causing my computer to go bonkers right now. Probably will have to scan for a virus after this.

One last thing before I go, we have some very important Gears news that’s worth checking into.  Yes, it’s about Judgement. Click the link below and read about it.[/color]

Maxim’s Gears of War Judgement Maps Revealed!

[color=white] See you guys next week.[/color]

SIP Weekly Update – 2.22.13


I was gifted a 3 day work week this week, thanks to our awesome snow day. Working on this update was something I spent most of my time with, and what a good week too. New info from Bungie (FINALLY!), new PS4 announcement, new tech announcement, that Crysis game…thing….Brilliant week for news. Probably my favourite bit of info this week, …well, second favourite I guess (Bungie being #1 of course) is the Google Glasses. Confused? Out of the loop? Consider yourself “looped”:

Pretty cool if you ask me. $1500 is pretty expensive, but for a pretty big leap in tech, it seems worth it. I have already pre-ordered mine. Maybe they’ll cure astigmatism. …maybe not.

Anyway, I have a load of tests to grade, and this sixer of Shiner isn’t going to drink itself.

Don’t drink and drive – you might spill. Have a great weekend and enjoy the news!

What do you get when a body builder marries someone with a sweet tooth?


Like that joke? I came up with it all by myself. Don’t worry guys I’m here all week!

Aside from my super lame joke, we’ve had a good week here in SIP. A hammer was bestowed on a Mongoose riding ODST and site announcements have been plentiful with awesome news.

Enjoy this short but sweet update guys. Oh and if you see Seth anywhere please tell him his horse in RDR is in great danger!
