Sigh, WordPress decided to delete my post content again. Luckily, I didn’t write too much, but it still really pisses me off. I contemplated switching to blogger for a couple of hours but after I cooled down I came to my senses. Serves me right for not hitting up the ctrl-s combo.
So, anyway, here’s what’s on the docket for this week:
1) My review of Videodrome (1983), another David Cronenberg classic which the gods at LOVEFiLM have seen fit to send me.
2) My review of Battlefield Heroes for the PC, EA’s grand experiment with the free-to-play, microtransaction-led revenue model. (Check out the awesome G.I. Joe inspired trailer here.)
I also had a chance to rent and play The Club this weekend, a game so colourless and bland that I’m sending it back two days later. It’s not a terrible game; it works fine on a technical level, but it’s so horribly dull to play. I don’t know, the fundamental concept is a good one but they’ve really missed something here.
