Not sure it's steroids...

Finished Assassin's Creed 4 last night, played Trials Fusion and finished Infamous Second Son before that.

South Park: The Stick of Truth (US, PC)

For someone who likes South Park, this game is basically a deeper, XXL version of Costume Quest. Which is to say it's not just a great, interactive +10 hour episode of the show, it's also a very decent turn-based RPG.

People who don't like the show and don't get anything out of the myriad references and easter-eggs will probably not get their money's worth overall, though.

Just beat Wolfenstein: The New Order. Turns out it is far better than it had any right to be, I highly recommend it. Currently getting back into Dragon Age in preparation for DA: Inquisition.

A buddy downloaded Double Dragon NEON the other day, we played it prior to going out last night. My God, it's like mainlining Eighties. In the best possible way.

Playing it at moment, its a real laugh and solid gameplay for a casual RPG gamer like me especially as I am not a big fan of turned based.

I got up to the abortion minigame yesterday, and I have to say, it was not a big deal at all. It's a typical South Park joke, overindulging and crass, but the way it's depicted really isn't grounds for the way it was censored in Europe.

Meh, it's nothing to get worked up about, it's not like people were missing out on a significant portion of the game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Yeh the censored scenes were nothing compared to some of the stuff they left in the game so I don't understand why we didn't get the full game. I am very wary of cenorship in this fashion entering video games.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut, I just rented it for the Wii U. I played the Xbox 360 original edition, I'm not sure what the differences are between the two editions, anyone know?

According to Giant Bomb:
The Director's Cut has the following new features:

Improved textures
The Missing Link DLC is integrated into the main game
New Game+
Overhauled Boss Battles
45 Minute "Making Of" video
8 hours of commentary from the developer studio, Eidos Montreal

You are in for a treat with the Wii-U version, loved it, game pad integration is fantastic in the Wii-U version.

South Park is now done and was well worth the 11 hours+...Probably give it an 8 out of 10 score

I'd be tempted to try the Wii U version for the revamped boss fights alone. Those were awful and reminded me a lot of the boss encounters in Alpha Protocol. Depending on your spec and gear, they coud really screw you over.
