TPiRecap: 26 May 2014 (Easing Back Into Things Speedrun Edition)


Engaging speedrun mode, because as much as I'm feeling better today, I'm still not really capable of giving you my usual standards. At least it's something, though, more than can be said for what I could give you by the end of last week... that counts for something, doesn't it?

Still working on re-establishing the full-service TPiRecap as soon as possible. Patience will be rewarded, I assure you.
