by Rainier on July 19, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

It's not really a surprise, but installing my HD PVR and/or rebuild my gaming computer with the new case did not quite happen as planned. Instead, we ran some errands, went for a walk and saw the remake of The Karate Kid, which was better than we anticipated. If you have seen the original, you can safely go watch this new version as they have changed a few minor things throughout that makes it worthwhile without changing its essence. (It should have been called "The Kung Fu Kid," but I digress ....)

Later this week, we'll be heading to Capcom and EA to check out some new titles, so keep an eye out for some goodies.
