This Is A Simple Story... But Not An Easy One To Tell

by Rainier on Nov. 14, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

We failed yesterday and didn't manage to keep up the pressure. We watched a few episodes of Hawaii Five-0 but then got distracted by that damn four-eyed sorcerer. We nearly completed LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 to completion, but didn't make headway on the DVR. We watched three episodes, but four new shows recorded in the meantime. Shame on us!

This week will see the release of another batch of high-profile games, such as: Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Airline Tycoon 2, Saints Row: The Third, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom, Need for Speed: The Run, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, and Anno 2070, to name a few. Quite a diverse offering, so there should be something in there for everybody.
