It Doesn't Matter If You Win Or Lose, It's What You Do With Your Dancin' Shoes

by Rainier on Oct. 23, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Lots of interesting stuff happening yesterday: League of Legends open beta, Star Trek Online beta sign-ups, Modern Warfare 2 coupon, and the launch of the Dragon Age web game. Speaking of launches, Windows 7 is being rolled out, and I must admit, I have been testing it for a few months now and like it. It's definitely an improvement over Vista, that's for sure.

TV-wise, I watched Criminal Minds and NCIS Los Angeles, but not one of the episodes of the latter has matched the promise of the pilot episode, so I'm considering dropping it soon. We also picked up a new series through Netflix, Flashpoint, which stars Enrico Colantoni (AKA Veronica Mars' dad) and follows a SWAT-type unit. It's pretty good so far, and I'm liking it better than NCIS: Los Angeles.

As it's Friday, we're one step away from the weekend, and since we don't have any specific plans, I think I'll do some hardcore CrimeCraft grinding in anticipation of next week's patch and free-2-play launch, which surely will bring in plenty of n00bs ready for me to plow through with my LMG.
