Can You Believe It? We're In The Middle Of A Drought, And The Water Commissioner Drowns

by Rainier on Jan. 26, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

We watched a little bit of the Australian Open last night, but nobody we are really rooting for. Even Andy Roddick is gone from the tournament. Prior to that, we watched an episode of Leverage and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, neither of which was really super amazing.

While we received our Mass Effect 2 console review copies a few days ago (look for the review later this week), I'm mostly a PC gamer, so I'll be snagging that off Steam. From what I've seen and played of it, the game is quite impressive, so I'm really looking forward to it.

We have several press events to attend this week, so stay tuned for some interesting coverage (previews, interviews and plenty of assets).
