You Strike Me As A Man Who Wouldn't Want To Waste His Chair

by Rainier on May 24, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Later today, we're off to yet another pre-E3 event of sorts, checking out a few of Activision's upcoming games. Should be fun.

Now that APB is in open beta, hope the rest of those few hundred thousands of people who never made it in the closed beta are getting a chance to hop in and see what it's all about. We sure are having a lot of fun with our little ragtag band of misfits, cruising the street of Paro (Colby server).  It's a little more laggy than before the open beta, but I guess we can chalk that up to the surge of logins.

Watched the series finale of The Chicago Code and was glad to see that they managed to wrap up the story arc they had started, even if it was a bit rushed. Excellent episode.
