EU News Wrap, October 3 – What happened today

Sorry, my Prada’s at the cleaners along with my hoodie and my fuck-you flip-flops, you pretentious douchebag… You better lawyer-up, asshole, ‘cause I’m not comin’ back for 30 percent, I’m comin’ back for everything. – Eduardo Saverin, The Social Network.

I only watched The Social Network for the first time at the beginning of this year when it got its home release and, quite honestly, why I missed this first time round at the cinema baffles me after watching it. It’s safe to say it’s now one of my favorite movies ever.

While Jesse Eisenberg is just terrific as Facebook’s co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, it’s Andrew Garfield that stole it as Eduardo Saverin just for his final speaking part in the movie alone, part of which I’ve quoted above. Justin Timberlake – shock – actually gave a not too shabby performance of his own as Sean Parker, the paranoid and manipulative founder of Napster.

In fact, I’m writing this to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s soundtrack, which in itself helped made the movie become oh so great. Just a terrific film all round. Please don’t make the mistake I did by missing out on it and go rent it at least tonight or sometime soon.

Anyways, game news wise, it’s been a bit quiet on the European front today. It should hopefully pick up tonight before Bren comes back from the public holIday Australia had today. Here’s what’s happened in the past nine hours:
