Like the successful, bloodthirsty investment bankers ring side at the MGM Grand, sprayed with another man's blood tinged sweat as he rocks to a fiercely delivered upper-cut, my giddy, primal joy at the orgnaized violence of Fight Night 3 is insatiable. Just thinking about the gorgeous visuals that will be delivered to my dialated pupils as faces deform like someone dropping a rock in a bowl of jello literally makes me gleam with a fine coating of testosterone. If, however, bloodying the brow of sportsmen isn't your particular violence du jour, you might keep an eye open for Galactic Civilizations 2 for the PC. I'd normally be all over that, but this week I'm much more likely to just punch the box, and maybe the guy behind the counter while I'm at it.
Once again, it's not like you've got better things to be watching on the DVD front. Believe it or not, the only thing on the DVD list that remotely interests me is Go Diego Go (the spiritual successor to Dora the Explorer), and then only because I can put it on the portable DVD player for my small-one, who I've diligently taught to not hit, while I punch people on the Xbox. Go rescue pack! Those of you with small kids know what I'm talkin' bout, can I get a hell ya? No? Oh, and I guess people throw stuff at Nicholas Cage in The Weatherman. I'd watch a full length motion picture of people throwing increasingly heavy objects at Cage. Particularly if it was a documentary. More DVD stuff here.
