And That, My Liege, Is How We Know The Earth To Be Banana-Shaped

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

The week is off to a good start, especially if you are a Halo fan. I'm sure quite a few of you are in line somewhere as we speak, waiting to get your copy of Halo: Reach.

If I get some spare time today, I'll check it out and see for myself what Adam's critique is all about.

We watched Kick-Ass last night, and while we expected it to be a mediocre flick with some comic book action, it turned out to be a visceral ass-kicking fest. Legs getting chopped off, throat-slicing galore, and countless blood spraying headshots by a foul-mouthed 13 year-old-girl. We surely didn't expect that, but we loved every minute of it.

Almost makes me want to check out the PSN title from earlier this year ... almost.
