I'm Like A Bad Penny, I Always Turn Up

by Rainier on Oct. 14, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Our summer is really arriving late this year. It's fall, and the weather hasn't been this hot all summer, save a few days here and there. I'm not complaining; it's just kind of weird.

The pizza fest from the other night kinda blocked our TV schedule, but we rallied back last night with House, Sons Of Anarchy, The Good Wife, Stargate Universe, and Hawaii Five-O. Don't remember much from the latter's original series, but we were pleasantly surprised.

Vindictus is back with an open beta, so everybody can join as long as you are in North America, so I had to check that out. The initial impressions are quite positive. The new areas are different, with more missions, a raised level cap, and increased customization options. Good stuff!
