There's Nothing I Like Better Than To Meet A High-Class Mama That Can Snap 'em Back At Ya

by Rainier on June 15, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Damn, that was a pretty slow day yesterday, but I guess everybody did their thing during E3, so it might be boring for the next week or two.

Haven't had a chance to try Duke Nukem Forever yet, but I've been seeing reviews and feedback that is all over the place. Some people claim it's juvenile, boring and ugly, and others say it's fun and not exactly revolutionary, but still a decent game. Guess I'll have to play it myself to judge.

However, what I'm really looking forward to is Falling Skies, a new sci-fi TV series about some sort of alien invasion with Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Dale Dye (also know for working with Gearbox on Brothers In Arms) and a bunch of others. Starting this Sunday, it'll tide me over until The Walking Dead comes back!
