You Know What To Do, Feed The French And Shoot The Germans!

by Rainier on Nov. 24, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

In our infinite wisdom, we decided to check out a few new TV series that we'd been on the fence about, The Good Wife and Glee. Unfortunately, now we've decided to add them to our already-lengthy DVR schedule. Now we'll have even less time to actually sleep!

This week should be rather slim news-wise since most companies will shut down early because of the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, so expect things to really die down mid-week. We'll be off visiting the in-laws, but the laptops are ready and primed, so we'll be on the case no matter what.

I've been checking out Torchlight, and I must say that it totally sucked me in. It's not really about the story, but the game is just fun.  If you ever played Dungeon Runners / Mythos, or if you're an old-time Diablo gamer, then this is very much like it. I wish the inventory was a bit bigger, even with the additional space from your pet, but maybe that increases later in the game. We'll see.
