I think ...

... I am having an odd relationship with Guild Wars 2. I do enjoy the fluid nature of the game-play while I am playing, but seem to lack the motivation to log in compulsively. It might be a degree of fatigue with another content driven MMO but I'll play through some more and see if it grows on me. I think I may end up feeling the same way I did about first game - That it was a great PvP diversion for instanced play, and had PvE that I can pass on. The combination of the Guild Wars 2 and The Secret World has however firmly ingrained the preference for always being able to move and use abilities at the same time. When going back to playing the other MMOs I'm currently playing again (Rift and Everquest 2 in this case) I found myself getting constantly spammed with 'You can't do that while moving' style feedback! That might be a choice that becomes firmly locked into my preferences ...

... that my nostalgia senses are flaring a lot while playing the Planetside 2 beta. In fact the work-in-progress sequel currently captures both the good and the bad of the original. The experience is updated and immensely satisfactory, with all the progression and choices you would have wanted ... but ... I also fear that motivations for long term play and actual conquest might again be a little absent from proceedings. I am however having a lot of fun, and for now that's what is most important ... 

... I am really, really, enjoying the new season of Doctor Who. Some fantastic episodes so far, and I like Matt Smith's version of the Doctor more and more every time I see a new episode. I also love the way that you can already see the story threads that you know Mr Moffat is going to pull together somehow spectacularly at the end of the season ...

... looking forward to watching Dredd this weekend. At the very least, if I am lucky, it may finally scrub the memory of the previous movie version from my head ...

... I am not usually one for waxing lyrical about books on human behavior, even though the area fascinates me. Thinking, Fast and Slow, however is an exception. If you aren't already a psychology major, it will most likely change the way you think about yourself and other people. It really is an enlightening read. Thoroughly recommended ...
