Broke my no play spell yesterday with Bardbarian. It's sort of an arena shooter without the shooting, because you have pods (ok fantasy units) that do it for you, and what you do instead is dodge bullets, manage units and buffs. There's a TD twist in that the arena has predefined entry points on one end and some thing on the other that has health points just like your ship (ok barbarian), and you die because either one or the other runs out of them.
There's a cutey-cute lick of paint on it, kind of a(?) homage to Brutal Legend, but the gameplay routine is a lot like 10,000,000 (and I suppose many other mobile games): have a run, see how far you can go, spend resources on upgrades, do it all over again - it has much of the same addictiveness - in fact I played over 90 minutes in a row.

I want to restate that I'm playing Dead Space 3 on the hardest difficulty you can do off the cuff. It's really god damn easy. Then there's the crafting stuff that seems a little bit broken. Then there's the fact that I'm doing exactly the same thing against enemies that I've done in the past two games. Nothing is interesting. Oh, then plot happened. Of the two women you see, one has an unnecessarily low-cut top and the other one is leaning forward. Come on. Please try. Please try harder.
It then doesn't help that one of those women is Ellie. And then contrivance happens. Holy shit, this is so dumb. What am I even doing any more. This isn't a game, it's an exercise in Bullshit Tolerance.

Crysis has started to fall apart after the bulletproof head of Korean Boss man followed swiftly by Zero G Jack Frost Alien Shit. If I recall the actual game after the Alien Palace of Cold is actually still pretty good, some good set pieces at least, but this fucking level...rgghh.

Possibly? I tried Gears of War (on 360) by myself and got around half-way through getting bored. My best friend came round one day and we played it co-op and after a few sessions, we finished it. I think it was mostly because we were actively making fun of it and its characters as we played. Then again, GoW does have one of the most generic Generic Black Dudes in a game I've played. I'm with your principle though of why bother playing one game when you know there are other, better ones out there? I'm not sure if I'll continue with DS3. I might just do another run-through of Mirror's Edge instead, seeing as I haven't done so yet on the PC and I wouldn't mind seeing that world alive in a higher resolution and image quality.

The parts after are weird. I HATED them when I first played it because the squids were overpowered as hell and the gatling gun was horrible. But I replayed the series last year to get ready for Crysis 3 and it wasn't bad at all. I think they may have patched it heavily?
As for me: Finally got around to the last third of the ArmA 3 campaign. Still fun and rapidly becoming my favorite ArmA campaign due to the lack of vehicles or spec ops crap. Stealth against ArmA AI is just hell, and I prefer a rifle to a tank (smaller target :p).Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

I need to write a stealth breakdown for XCOM and compare it to how other turn based games(including board games) handle it. It's really ambiguous about what breaks the mimetic body upgrade, essentially being flanked. But sometimes breaks for unclear reasons. Funnily, stealthy opponents you haven't seen can't break your stealth.

Playing latest versions of Splinter Cell,Thief and Hitman.. And comparing them to Thief 2,Chaos Theory and Blood Money,BIG OUCH!

Aww come on, Blacklist isn't as bad as the other two. Sure it's different to Chaos Theory but it's not a turd.

Listening to what people have to say about new MGS,it feels me with hope that this is finally next good stealth games in a long longtime. Its very open and you can approach objectives in so many different ways. Just check it out on youtube.

It's probably the sight lines catching me out, sometimes I've shot and taken fire through walls which were clearly cosmetic and not considered by AI.

Playing Crysis 3. Mechanically, it's basically Crysis 2, but a bit prettier. (Vegetation!) The story is utter vapour, but I already knew that. There's some new guns, like the bow and that typhoon rifle, but mostly it's the same bunch as in C2. The suit upgrade system is revamped a bit, in that you buy an upgrade, and can the enhance it by completing a sort of achievement thing. I think it works okay by basically improving your chosen playstyle.
Overall, it's fun but forgettable, just like the second game. I was prepared for the vapid story, and don't mind it, but I'm a bit disappointed by the lack of gameplay evolution since Crysis 2, what with the reuse of all the weapons and such.

Finished Batman: Arkham City earlier today. There's a few more things to do though, it seems, and I did buy the Harley Quinn DLC so there's that. The finale was a bit of a let-down, as earlier boss fights were far more interesting than one with Clayface. I eventually got to grips with the combat, and did pretty well with it - on Normal difficulty.
Batman as a character was odd. I've never been too big on comics, and haven't seen any of the recent Batman related films, but even after spending a few hours with the man and his enemies I'm finding it hard to really care about what he gets himself into. Catwoman, on the other hand, is far more amusing. It's possible that her quips would get boring after a full length game, but I'd be interested to see a game focussed on her. Perhaps a bit like how Mass Effect 2 took the world from its predecessor and focussed on the dirty back-stage areas: the docking bays, the warehouses, the building sites, the slums.
Either way, a nice game - if perhaps not the amazing genre transcending game some of the reviews at the time made it out to be."He has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to
the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free". ~ Luke 4:18
