There are people who actually pre-ordered DNF back in 2000, shortly after the big PCG exclusive on it, because everyone thought it was gonna be out soon. Some of those people still have their receipts, too.

Also, from what I've heard one of the problems with DNF is they've made a halfassed attempt to turn it into a modern game by adding things like regenerating health and a two-weapon inventory, so it sounds like it won't even be able to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with old-school shooters like Doom, Serious Sam and Resistance: Fall of Man for fun factor. I wonder if it even has that classic FPS bug / feature of making you run faster diagonally because all the classic WASD shooters just added forward speed + strafe speed to get your diagonal speed.

I totally forgot that this bug existed...

I just got back from seeing Super 8. It was a very good movie.

Also, in every movie about aliens trying to get back home, why is the military potrayed as giant assholes?

Maybe the military has seen all those movies were aliens come try to kill us. They're reacting to the assumtion that the aliens want to kill us.

Which would logically be their job.

Good news!! I'm almost done watching the second series of Doctor Who. Three more series to go!!

I also saw Green Lantern today. It was good, but they could of picked a better choice than Ryan Reynolds (like Chris Pine).

The trailer for F.3.A.R. has gotten the song "Four Rusted Horses" by Marilyn Manson stuck in my head. Guy creeps me out but I'm seriously loving that song.

The game looked meh though to be honest. Haven't even gotten around to playing the first or second F.E.A.R. yet.
