This long Memorial Day weekend, I'll be asking myself the following question: how much better or worse is this than Split/Second? Yep, this weekend shall be a Blur.

Of course, there are still plenty of strangers to befriend, wild mountain cats to slay and flowers to be picked in my copy of Red Dead Redemption. Drunken cowboys will be knocked out cold as I fiddle with those many unlocked achievements in Rockstar's dusty open world action game. Anyone up for a little Red Dead multiplayer this weekend?

I may fire up this newly installed copy of Half-Life 2 on the iMac, just to see how well the game holds up.

You? Got some gaming and BBQing plans this weekend?
