What is a WRUP

Turns out I’m not allowed to talk about my time with the ...group. Sorry, no more updates. I heard The Division is out. That’s cool. It’s probably a quite fun 3rd person Destiny.

Underwater WRUP

Quick update: Life here is quite busy. Can’t tell you what we are doing, but folks are really nice! Food is also surprisingly good. I had expected lots of seafood, with us being underwater and supply deliveries only getting here once a month, but we get a surprising amount of meat and some sort of…

3 Out of #4iF

Another February has ended and this year I may not have been an A student, but I still got a passing grade for one of my favorite Joystiq pastimes. I played three great games this year and was rather surprised by one. Join me after the break to hear my thoughts on said titles.
