Well folks, that day if finally upon us. Today the Playstation 4 has officially launched in the US and the XBOX One is just one more week away. I've had so many friends come to me worried that they aren't going to get their hands on one. Pre-orders sold out in record speed, and it's looking like whether you're hoping for an XBOX One or Playstation 4, if you didn't sign up early you'll be waiting until after Christmas.
However, that being said I would ask you, is that really such a bad thing?
If you listened to our episodes The Great Debate: Parts I & II, you'll know that we recommended waiting until early next year to jump on with one of these consoles anyway. This recommendation has not changed, and please allow me to give you a few reasons why.
Ok, so I am obsessed with Ugly Betty. I know I am about 7 years behind the curve, but Netflix strikes again! Since I recently became a stay at home mom, my new hobby is finding the next obsession worthy show on Netflix that will fill the time between changing diapers and making bottles. I remember hearing good things about Ugly Betty, but to be honest, I couldn’t be bothered to rush to the TV at 10:00PM on Wednesday nights to catch the latest episode. I much prefer waiting for it to arrive on Netflix Instant where I can take in episode after delicious episode. Suspense is so overrated.
Well folks, the day is finally here, Man of Steel Tuesday...I mean, New Release Tuesday! As you can see, I have been bouncing up and down in my chair for weeks waiting for today. Finally, Man of Steel will be on my shelf for me to watch a million times a week, and honestly, it needs to be on your shelf too.
Don't hesitate, go buy this movie today...right now...what are you waiting for?
In the meantime, here are some other movies and shows that release today that don't come near to stacking up against Man of Steel.
We here at PAUSED! Reviews would like to take a moment to say thank you to all the brave men and women who have served our nation in defense of freedom and liberty. As good old Jack Nicholson once said, we sleep under the very blanket of freedom you provide. With that in mind I'm quite sure that I speak for all of us here at PAUSED! when I say, thank you!
We could give you a post of a thousand movies and games you can watch or play today in honor of our nations brave vets, but nothing will compare to simply reaching out and saying thanks. So we urge you today to show some love to our active and retired warriors in whatever way you see fit. We can never thank you enough for your sacrifice, but we thank you all the same.
We wish you all a very Happy Veterans Day from the bottom of our hearts.
Franc, Pol and Dre

On Friday night I decided to hit the town, brave the crowds and check out Thor: The Dark World on opening night. Now while it certainly isn't the worst film in the Avengers Saga (that title is held securely by Iron Man 3) it certainly wasn't the best. It was nowhere near as good as the first, but still somewhat watchable. Though, I'm not sure I would recommend anyone spend movie theater money on this one, and please allow me to tell you why.

Well ladies and gents we have a special recurring blog post in store for you for the coming weeks. Pol and I recently picked up Diablo III on XBOX 360 and have been playing a bit for research on an upcoming episode. However, we quickly discovered how much we actually enjoy the game, and how surprisingly complex and engaging it is on consoles.
So, we thought we'd do something a little different. We are always watching movies and playing games and telling you what we think. This time Pol and I will be posting periodically over the next month or two with thoughts and updates as we play the game. Each of us has selected a character, and while I will keep you guessing a few more days, here is Pol's first installment on playing through Diablo III as the Witch Doctor known as "Chang".
Well folks, it has certainly been quite the day here at PAUSED!, but I am happy to announce that it looks like all issues are resolved and this week's episode is up and ready for your patiently waiting ears.
Just a quick note that while the issues with iTunes seem to have been resolved, today's episode may take up to a day to post in the iTunes Store. However, if you are wise enough to have subscribed to our podcast, simply click the refresh button in your podcast library and the episode will appear, just like magic, with no wait time. So enjoy being awesome.
This week we take a look at indie games. We will give you a loose definition of the term, discuss how the indie game market might affect the console war, and finally, give three example of great indie games we found and played.
So, sit back and enjoy the show. You can find it in our Podcast Archive, or at some point today/tomorrow in the iTunes Store.

Enjoy and thanks for listening!

Here are this week's new releases. As always, above are the featured titles, and below you'll find all the rest. Hopefully we'll have some time to check out a few this week and get a Buy, Watch, Wait posted for you. For now, one word of advice, if you have the thought that you may want to watch White House Down, skip it and rent Oympus Has Fallen instead.
Anyways, with that, here are the rest of the titles that drop today.
