A 25% Slice Of Something Big Is Better Than A 100% Slice Of Nothing

Our DC Universe Online contest is over, as the closed beta ended last night with a "Battle of the Legends" event. While the access was a bit limited due to the late arrival of the codes, I hope the winners had a good time. We'll be having a new giveaway coming up shortly. Who doesn't like more free games, right?!

I've been browsing for some new music on iTunes and got some nice stuff from Yngwie Malmsteen, The Damned Things (Fall Out Boy and Anthrax members) and Killing Joke (I get all their stuff because I LOVE their "Love Like Blood" song).

Later today, I'm going to watch The Road, which I've been wanting to see for a while, but since the reviews were quite horrible, I did not pick it up until now. Wish me luck!
