Hey all my fellow Dtoid community members. I hope you've all had a good weekend. I ended up celebrating Halloween a week early this Friday night. I dressed up as Rorschach from Watchmen and my girlfriend dressed up as a forest fairy. I have to admit that both of our costumes looked extremely awesome. I plan on posting pictures from the part sometime this week, so be on the look out for them.
I spent most of the week playing Uncharted 2
and loving it. It has some of the best multiplayer, if not the best, I've played all year. I just can't seem to put the controller down. You should check out my official review
over at Gamer Limit if you get a chance.
This week I'll be putting all my time and effort into Borderlands on the PC. I have been really excited to play this for a while, and after hearing a lot of people rave about it, I'm ready to dive in head first. I should have a review posted for the game by sometimes next weekend, assuming all goes according to plan.
So I'm curious as to what all of you plan on dressing up as for Halloween. Feel free to share in the comments. :-)
