That's Like Being Hit In The Head With A Crowbar Once A Day

by Rainier on Nov. 13, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PST

I doubt that many people were surprised to learn that Modern Warfare 2 sold a whopping 4.7 million copies in its first day. With the success of the first title and the hype surrounding this one, you knew that it was going to be huge. I've been playing the game on and off throughout the day, and I have to admit that it's pretty intense, although I think it lacks a certain connection with the characters within the game. You play as various people, different nationalities, and you travel to locations all over the world. One of your first playable characters dies about 30 minutes into the game. So far, I've enjoyed the atypical shooter parts the most — the snowmobile racing, the wall climbing, etc. — which were fun to break up the pace.

In case you have not yet seen it, a first trailer has been released for the Clash of the Titans remake, and it's looking epic! We also watched the new NCIS and Sons of Anarchy, both excellent episodes. I've got a bit of a backlog on the DVR, so hopefully I'll be able to squeeze in an episode of Criminal Minds and/or Fringe during the day.

But wait, there's more! Tomorrow is Stargate Universe time!
