The Morning Stool: I Hate Darrell Edition


There are always certain people in your life that you hate; it could be the person who stole your wife and kids, it could be the person who cut of your penis in a horrible hunting accident, but for me, that person is Darrell.  A couple of months ago, we started a feature here on The Nerd Filter, called The Netflix Challenge, where we challenge another writer from our website to watch a movie and review it.  Well, Darrell challenged me to Miami Connection, and I hate him for it.  I’ll be writing a review on it this week, so look out for it, but I’ll have you know, we’re currently 3 minutes into it, and I don’t know how much more I can take.

This weekend’s gaming was a complete success.  On Friday, I got the platinum on Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and on Saturday morning I finished off Dead Island Riptide as well.  I started Alice:  Madness Returns after finishing Prince of Persia, having previously played it on the Xbox, I am still really enjoying it.  I think it is incredibly underrated, looks great, and has in incredible story.  You can probably get it for pretty cheap if you don’t have it, so check it out.


On the comic book front, this week might just break me.  I have 9 items being released, for a total of $55.00.  Yes, one of them is a graphic novel to drive up the price, but still, that’s a lot of money.  I may have to pare down my pull list considerably, but I honestly read everything I buy, with the exception of Supergirl, I just like the covers.  There is one issue that I am really looking forward to, and that’s Mass Effect Foundations.  As most of you know, I am a huge ME fan, and this series sounds awesome.  Also, instead of Mass Effect’s usual 4 issues, they’ve made this series a 12 issue release.  Needless to say, I am really excited for this!  Anyways, have a great day, and be good to each other.
