That Is The Sound Of Inevitability... It Is The Sound Of Your Death

by Rainier on March 31, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

I've been messing a little bit with the OnLive Game System, and while I haven't actually connected it to the TV yet, I have to give props to OnLive for putting together a great package. Most game systems these days (Xbox 360 comes to mind) do not include a variety of cables that you need to hook it up, whereas OnLive adds everything into the bundle: cat5 cable, spiffy controller, and even the HDMI connector. I did check out the service through the PC, and it's quite impressive to be able to select a title and be playing it within 5 seconds without a download or lengthy installation process.

Just noticed this new Spielberg series Falling Skies, starring Dale Dye, Moon Bloodgood, and Noah Wyle. It looks quite interesting, even though it made me think of The Walking Dead right away. It premieres on TNT this June (two-hour premiere on Sunday, June 19 at 9/8c), so I guess we know what to add to the DVR when it starts.
