I think...

...haven't had nearly enough time with new games this month. Got a little time in with Brink, but have to admit to being a little disappointed. Maybe is that a pretty perfect team based shooter for me already exists (in the form of Team Fortress 2), but something about Brink just didn't click, which is a shame as I have been a fan of some of their previous shooters. I like to see people trying something different and ambitious, and I liked some of the elements (the GUI, the movement among them) but overall the team dynamics were too disjointed to really enjoy the team play...it might grow on me though...so I probably will check it out again as the community matures...

...no chance to try either LA Noire or The Witcher 2 yet, despite really wanting to...

...the start of the summer movie season has been a bit hit and miss for me. I enjoyed Thor as a light super-hero romp that was nicely paced and cast well. I was eager to see what a director like Kenneth Branagh would make of a license like that, and it worked for me...alas can't quite say the same about the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, while Depp is still worth watching, even Captain Jack seemed a little jaded this time out. Ian McShane wasn't given the same opportunity to shine as the previous villains, and the script was a little disjointed. I guess at the end of the day I still enjoyed it as mind candy, but it didn't have the same fun factor as the previous entries in the series...

...I was always going to love an episode of Doctor Who penned by Neil Gaiman, and I wasn't disappointed, his episode was brilliantly written with great dialog and a brilliant concept. I am enjoying the new season, and while I can understand why some people feel it might be a touch darker this year than it's target audience usually tolerate, for me it's pretty much exactly what I like most in my timelords...
