As you were probably already aware, yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and I feel pretty proud of myself for lasting as long as I did before dying inside. It was about 9:30 am when I saw some blond walk by with a good-looking guy, and she was acting like an idiotic, narcissistic toddler on helium, just to get his attention. It was then that I decided I had already had enough of this nauseating holiday, that is, until the candy started coming my way. Then I remembered why the bulk of society celebrates Valentine’s Day: chocolate. And man, did I celebrate. I still feel a little sick from inhaling last night’s Toblerone. …And about 6 chocolate hearts. …And that giant cookie.

 

Anyway! Moving on. About a week ago, some Halo fan site leaked images of the new Defiant map pack. Recently, Bungie confirmed this, setting its release date in March. The pack will feature two new multiplayer maps and one for firefight. If you’d like to see its awesome and cheesy promotional video, click here. It’s pretty exciting!

 

So why did I mention Valentine’s Day? Because there’s more! Yesterday, Valve released a cute little Valentine’s Day video that you can view by clicking here. It’s purpose was to announce that Portal 2 can now be pre-ordered! Yay! However, I don’t think I will be participating due to its release date falling very close to my birthday. I’ll let my family do the pre-ordering.

 

So there are two very exciting excitements to look forward to and have little nerd moments about. I’ve already begun fantasizing about their epic entry into my living room.

 

P.S. The picture at the top is a killer pumpkin. It has absolutely no relevance to this post.
