You're A Funny Guy, But Looks Aren't Everything

by Rainier on Jan. 11, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

Our lazy Sunday was lazier than we even anticipated. How's that for achievement?

We had planned on watching some movies and TV series on the DVR and ended up sleeping in late and lounging around. We did watch Heroes (in our defense, it was a two-hour ep.) and then another nap, and bam, it was time for dinner. I guess we succeeded in our plan to do nothing. :)

Our site guru Ricky has rolled out a few updates over the weekend, adding our contest feature back into the mix, so we'll be running some game giveaways that have been on hold for a few months. He made a few tweaks to the screenshot galleries and a few back-end modifications. Up next is a change to how our review scores are displayed, and then on to the comments/forum. Yay!
