On A Long Enough Timeline, The Survival Rate For Everyone Drops To Zero

by Rainier on Nov. 17, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

Today should be another glorious day for gamers! Plenty of new games should be in stores, including the hot hot hot Assassin's Creed II, Left 4 Dead 2 and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles (lightgun game! *drool*).

I'm somewhat intrigued by the setting and lore, but at the same time, I'm afraid the overwhelming CGI will bring it all down. I hope I'm wrong because I do want to go see the movie, as well as 2012, A Christmas Carol, Planet 51 and The Road, to name a few.
