Hey look, I made it without getting drunk and falling asleep. This must be rehab!

Earlier this week, we went to a BioShock 2 event, and then THQ was in town to show off Metro 2033 and Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising, so we'll have some interviews and previews coming in the next few days. Keep an eye out.

Last night, we watched the latest episode of Burn Notice, and it was excellent, probably one of the best yet. Tonight we're meeting up with some friends for some drinks (you've been forewarned), but hopefully we'll be able to watch The Hurt Locker sometime this weekend, as we bought the DVD the other week, and I'm itching to see it again!
