An Accident? An Accident? Do You Realize It's Snowing In My Room Goddammit!

by Rainier on Oct. 20, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

It's been raining cats and dogs again. I can deal with heat, humidity, cold and snow, but I hate rain.

Yesterday's NPD numbers were interesting; it's not so much a surprise that Halo 3: ODST topped the sales numbers or that PS3 outsold Wii and X360, but rather that The Beatles: Rock Band outsold Guitar Hero 5, even though Activision claimed the franchise has been outselling EA's rhythm series 4-1, also beating analysts' expectations.

Last night, we watched White Noise 2, with our newfound WP hero  Nathan Fillion, and it was quite decent. It hadn't been on our radar at all, but if you like the suspense/thriller genre, it's definitely worth a rental.
