I Hope We're Still Friends After I Taser You

by Rainier on Oct. 16, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Glad that the week is finally winding down. Yesterday was a pretty good news day, with Sony announcing a 250GB PlayStation 3. We also posted our Dark Void preview based on our hands-on time with the preview build. Definitely excited about that one, since Crimson Skies was one of my favorite Xbox games.

Watched episodes of NCIS, Criminal Minds and Sons of Anarchy, and we got halfway through Next Day Air, a comedy about a parcel delivery driver who mistakenly delivers a very important box to the wrong apartment. Hijinks ensue. I only wanted to see this movie because I like Mos Def's acting, but this was another instance where the trailer made the movie look hilarious. It's pretty mediocre so far, and Donald Faison (from "Scrubs") is definitely wasted here.
