We're Assets, Nicholai. Expendable Assets ... And We've Just Been Expended

by Rainier on Nov. 4, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

Another huge batch of games is available in stores. Too bad that the game of the week, Dragon Age: Origins, seems to be a bit of a letdown on consoles, but at least the PC edition shines.

It seems we're going to have to look for a new DVR, as its antics are continuing. When it's time to start recording, it automatically turns on at the appropriate time, only to record ... nothing. Luckily, we had yet to watch yesterday's Castle, which is finally starting to show Nathan Fillion's gaming interest with a Guitar Hero cameo. Speaking of Fillion, last week rumors started flying around that Hugh Jackman was in the running to play Drake in the upcoming Uncharted movie, but I'd rather see Fillion throw his hat in the ring for the role. He loves video games, has the right sense of humor, and, dare I say, he even looks a bit like the protagonist.
