I'm Not Supposed to be Within 200 Feet of a School ... or a Chuck E. Cheese

by Rainier on Oct. 12, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

We saw Surrogates today, and while I'm a big Bruce Willis fan, I must admit that this is not his best work. It was just a weak movie with a weak story, and it was also slow on several occasions. If you insist on seeing it, wait for it to be available as a DVD rental. It's definitely not a movie that needs to be seen in the theatre.

Apart from that, we didn't do a whole lot. Watched Smallville, some more The Amazing Race, and checked out Operation Flashpoint 2, which has good graphics and may be easier to get into and has fewer bugs than its rival, Arma II.

There are three press trips lined up for this week, so there's plenty of gaming goodness coming your way. Stay tuned ....
