So, what are your favourite albums, games, books, films and whatever else you've come across during the year? Anything memorable published or happened in 2011 goes. I've never been too good at keeping up with the new stuff, but I'll try to post something.
Favourite Album: PJ Harvey - Let England Shake.
The first PJ Harvey album I bought. In some sense it's a protest album about war, but it's way more diverse and ends up going through Harvey's love and frustration towards England and its war ridden history also. In general the album has kind of wonderful timeless feel in it. The lyrics are also way more thought out than in most albums.
There's a series of short films build around songs avaible on youtube. I don't think I can pick any particular favourite on the album, so I'll give one of the catchier ones as an example. Favourite gaming moment: Star Craft: Brood War: Jin Air OSL
Possibly one of the last big BW tournaments ever delivered big time. Lots of excellent series, great comeback storylines, nailbiter finals and all that. As good as anything e-sportish can get. Watching the finals on a livestream was quite memorable.
If you're comfortable with the BW spectating already, it might be worth checking out the Korean broadcast as it transmits the excitement better. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgVRjxvRdVc
As for movies, I don't think I saw any particular stand outs. I think Captain America exceeded my low expectations, but that's roughly it.
Out of games Magicka sticks out quite nicely despite all the technical awkwardness. I'm still looking forward to try Bastion and Super Meat Boy at least. Limbo also seemed interesting. Bigger titles like Skyrim and possibly BF3 are on to-do list once I get some heavier hardware. Any other recommendations on the games section?
