Let's Do Some Gratuitous Violence

by Rainier on Oct. 2, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Whew! We just walked in the door from the BBQ. The ribs and mashed potatoes with corn and goat cheese were most delicious, and so were the half dozen bottles of wine we consumed.

Friday at last! I sense a weekend full of gaming coming up ... or sleep ... or catching up on TV series. There's plenty to do, it seems.

Played some LEGO Rock Band earlier today, and in line with the previous LEGO games, it is pretty enjoyable and has some depth even though it's intended for a younger target audience.

The PSPgo launched, and while I doubt I'll trade in my regular PSP for the new model, I'm kind of intrigued by all the minis that will be getting released shortly. I enjoy the XBLA and PSN games, so this is the same, only for a handheld system.
