I think...

...only had had a few hours so far with the HD remakes of Ico and Shadows of the Colossus, but it is fun to see them again after so long. It's not often I revisit games, as I usually fear they will suffer compared to what I thought I remembered...but these may be exceptions... 

 ...The Old Republic is pretty much what I think I was expecting. It's a cross between the old KoTR games and an MMO, and I've enjoyed most of the main story-line I've played through. I also kind of like the way they wrapped their tradeskills into the companion system. Not entirely sure how much it will grab me long term, but I'm also prone to over analysing, the ever present professional curiosity gets in the way of thinking about the game as a player might. It definitely nails the Stars Wars aesthitic though, and there will always be something about getting to take a light saber to gunfight for someone of my generation... 

...falling a bit behind on the TV, but iTunes and travel let's me catch up somewhat. Also glad I stuck with Persons of Interest as it is starting to hit a stride and I'm looking forward to see where it's going now that it's opening up the larger storyline...

...also looking forward to next show from Mister Abrams when Alcatraz starts next week... 

...the tech behind the new Tintin movie was impressive, and I enjoyed the film. The technology is fast approaching he day when its starting to avoid the 'uncanny valley' issue. It was also quite interesting to see how much of an homage they were to the old cartoons I used to watch as a kid...
