I Met Death Today. We Are Playing Chess

by Rainier on May 17, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Well the first day of construction was kind of aborted when it started raining cats and dogs. Kind of hard to be windowless when water comes flying inside, so the crew had to call it a day. With predictions of rain for the rest of the week, we're off to a bad start ...

A slew of games are going to be hitting the stores again today, and I'm particularly interested in Fable III, finally back on the PC, and The Witcher II. When I played Fable III a few months ago on a 3-D enabled machine, it was amazing. However, I think The Witcher II is going to trump it as the better title. Of course, the big title of the week (and possibly of the year) is L.A. Noire, which we've had for a few days, so keep an eye out for that review as well.

We felt particularly lazy today, so we just order pizza (a combo of Maui Zaui and BBQ Chicken) and watched some NCIS (RIP Mike).
