You Boys Ain't A Mild Case Of The Measles. You're The Plague

by Rainier on Oct. 1, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

It's official: We're loosing the battle with the DVR. We watched NCIS, Castle and The Good Wife last night, and by the time we were done, there was more on it than when we started. It's time to admit that we have a problem. We're slackers, and we need to step it up!

Out of my new game acquisitions (Lara Croft, Darksiders, Dead Rising 2), I have checked out the first two and am enjoying the Tomb Raider spin-off. It's a somewhat old-school, top-down action game that's not too complicated but fun. Darksiders is obviously a console port. It's visually passable, and they've done a good job in making the controls work, but it's mainly the premise and story that are of interest here.
