Weekend Reading: Tales from Journal Land

Posted by Gaiiden, in Weekend Reading 20 September 2013 · 485 views

This is me doing something other than Grand Theft Auto V. Or ArmA III (but mostly GTA5 - I got ArmA III set up but still reading through the amazing 350-page tactical guide that came with the special edition). If you're also into those games, I'm looking for crew members and squad mates, respectively.
