    Same, and I really enjoyed it. The puzzles are extremely easy to be sure, but the writing is really good for a video game, and easily better than the TV show. It's a fun time.

    ^ Yeah I used to play old-school adventures (mostly from Sierra Lucas Arts) and TWD is so easy it's not even funny. However as an experience it's a lot of fun. The second ep is seriously fucked up. ;)

    Played through The Darkness, which was... disappointing. OK in places, but far far too small-scale and constrained. If only one could go to town with the full powers across the city...

    I think either some Formula 1 racing or Lego Star Wars next...

    F1 2010 - no Kers or DRS, but very good and realistic. A totally different type of driving than I'm used to from other games where drifting and sideswiping opponents is the norm...

    I'm currently playing through Lost Odyssey after owning it for around 4 years and having only played until midway through disc 2. I'm now at the beginning of disc 4 and hooked - the effect that any game masterminded by Hironobu Sakaguchi has on a person!

    I picked up L.A. Noire in the Steam summer sale and am really enjoying it so far. It's basically a classic dialogs-and-clues adventure game benefitting from very good facial animation and with an open world bolted on for diversion in the form of "classic scenes from old cop movies" minigames (car chase, foot chase across rooftops, shoot the perp using the hostage as shield without hitting the hostage, etc.).

    And unlike Rockstar's GTA IV it doesn't run like a dog on PC, either. Well, the DX9 mode does actually, but they put out a patch in February that adds a DX11 mode and that runs like butter on my GTX275.

    I worry a bit that the clue gathering part will get repetitive after a while, but if the storytelling keeps being satisfying it'll make up for it.

    A little Spec Ops: The Line has been keeping me going lately. Short, but satisfying. I love the dark tone of the storyline.

    Just started Kingdom Hearts II, after buying it years ago and setting it aside after a couple hours.

    Turns out you don't have to spend hours grinding stupid mini-games for munny. I'm now about 5 hours in and greatly enjoying it.

    Tribes is shaping up to be a fantastic FPS.

    Playing Endless Space, which is a great little 4X and is pretty much everything SOTSII wasn't: stable and fun.

    Just got Diablo III and I'm enjoying it thus far.

    Still playing Star Trek Online (But less and less often)

    Been wanting to jump back into World of Warcraft especially with Pandaria on the horizion, but can't seem to make the time for it.

    And of course I'm still wanting to pick up, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

    Now there's a game that I haven't played in way too long.

    It isn't as deep and lacks the humour that made GC2 that little bit more special. GC2 is a better game, but Endless Space's more simplistic offering makes it easier to get into and play.

    Damn it, this is making me wish Stardock would make a GC3 now.
