A short time ago, I posted my thoughts on UFO Online, one of the most exciting titles I found while at E3 this year.

Here in Texas we have been suffering from one of the worst heat waves in the history of the state. It's the type of constant heat that makes you mad at something, perhaps the sky or the sun. It's not logical, but you start to get mad at the state for being where it is. Then you start to get angry...
