I think...

...a week until Civilisation V appears, can't wait to try some empire building again. After the frantic nature of Starcraft 2 I am about ready for a more sedate (but no less compulsive) strategic experience....

...Angry Birds might just be the most frustrating, but also the most addictive little app I have played on the iPhone yet. Slightly late to the party, but felt I had to check it out finally...and it is every bit as compelling and 'one more turn' inducing as I had been told. Maddeningly frustrating in places too though...

...my non-Conan MMO time has been pretty diversely split at the moment. Checking out the new free to play versions of both EQ2 and LOTRO, still pottering around Fallen Earth a little, and spent some time checking out the Planetary Interaction feature in EVE that I missed when it came out a few months ago...so more a period of sampling from the MMO buffet rather than being drawn into one single game...

...William Gibson's Zero History is a good read so far. I have enjoyed this current trilogy much more than some of his other work. I thought it was because the setting is a little easier to relate to, but I think the characters also resonate due to how people have to adapt to our ever changing world and how technology impacts us at every turn...

...The BBC's modern day re-telling of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Sherlock, was well written and well played throughout. The challenge of making the great detective's deductive powers mean something in a modern setting when science and everything CSI rule was very well handled...worth catching if you get the chance...just beware the ending, it will leave you cursing them and wanting more!
