On Wednesday nights, she appears in a cloud of glowing white light to shepard us to the Promised Land of edited articles and righteous font choices. Parting the murky waters of student journalism, the huddled Gauntlet staff follow her. Her wisdom enables us to ignore the evils of missed deadlines and American spelling. Thursday morning, she will dissapear again in a puff of smoke, but we will never forget her service.

  CUFF film review: Three Night StandPDF files may take a moment to load

A disenchanted married couple, a weekend getaway at a ski lodge, ex-lovers and other wacky characters barging in at the wrong times — it sounds like the recipe for a bland and generic comedy.

Don’t believe the hype. Titanfall is a fun game, but it’s not without its faults — and there are major ones.
