'Planetside 2' To Be Massive, Says SOE CEO

SOE's 2003 Planetside was the first real MMOFPS, where thousands of players wage war in a battle of planetary proportions with first-person player-to-player combat and vehicular warfare across ten continents.

With much better organization, and a tight focus on making sure the action is always going on, with awesome graphics.'

Our trip to the movies to see "Surrogates" has been postponed until tomorrow, which gave us some time to watch stuff on the DVR. We caught up on Supernatural, Flashforward, Bones and The Amazing Race, which is like the old La Chasse au trésor that I used to watch when I was a kid.

Aside from the movie plans, we have nothing else on tomorrow's schedule, so we'll probably do some more watching (a few episodes of Heroes), groceries, laundry and perhaps squeeze in a few games (Republic Heroes and Operation Flashpoint).
