More than L.A. Noire, the big video game for me this month is Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. I pretty much jumped ship midway through the first Lego Indiana Jones, and consequently, the Lego series as a whole. But my infatuation with Pirates is overwhelming enough that I'll allow Traveller's Tales to reel me in one more time. It really does look like a lot of fun.
And with little else of interest this month, I'm likely going to allow myself to get swept up by the newly invigorated Pirates marketing. There's the "On Stranger Tides" art book and the soundtrack -- and I just went ahead and put an order in for the reprint of the Tim Powers novel. (Terrific read, by the way. It'll be interesting to see just how many elements they've culled for the new movie.)
