by Rainier on Nov. 18, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

Another big Tuesday shipping day. Good thing we don't have to pay for our games, or I'd be dirt poor by now! The new Scene It? and LEGO Indiana Jones 2 totally slipped my mind, but hopefully we'll be able to check them out soon.

My eBay-purchased zapper laser guns shipped, but they are coming all the way from Hong Kong, so it'll be a few weeks before they get here. I can't wait! Ever since I was a kid, I've always been drawn to the lightgun games, like Mad Dog McCree, and now I'll finally have my own setup.

Not much TV watching today, but we did manage to squeeze in the latest House. Hopefully, I'll be able to make more headway into the ever-increasing DVR backlog.
