Skyrim. 74 hours since I got it seven days ago according to Steam, all with the same character and I suspect I haven't finished more than at most 20% of the game (haven't joined the Dark Brotherhood or the Thieves Guild or finished the Companion questline, for one thing).
Rather nice game and it runs pretty well on my laptop, much to my surprise.

I can only affirm that the German voice-cast for Drakensang is actually outstanding for a change. ;)
Now you know what we Germans suffer through whenever we get one of your games dubbed!

I would love to try the game in german, with english ui. That would be excellent.

The German audiofolder is around 860 Megabytes... if you have a FTP hidden away somewhere, PM me and I'll attempt to upload it the next time I have time to do so.

Got a copy of Soul Calibur V, so it's been that. Getting beaten up and beating up online so far.

As an example I'm currently playing Dragon Age 2 (currently on hiatus due to dead HDD) and would love to be able to have some French subtitles being a counterpoint to the English voices. Why? To see if it has any effect on my foreign language ability, which is something I'm always looking to improve.
I suspect what I'm asking isn't possible because of publishers not wanting people in some regions/countries playing the games from others, which having all the subtitles could facilitate, as they do enjoy putting a penis in my ideas.
On topic: Dragon Age 2 is a lot of fun. It definitely doesn't deserve all the hate it gets seeing as the combat is very similar the the original, just sped up a bit, and the gameplay is very similar.
There are places where it is worse, for example: repetitive environments, spawning enemies, dull loot system and some of the characters are just too... obsequiously written for the fans if you know what I mean.
But in other ways it is, to me, better: generally better level design, no Bioware hub-with-3-or-4-directions mechanic, character-centric story is more appealing, better ability system, voiced protagonist and little UI/gameplay tweaks (it is now far easier & quicker to re-equip the whole party, no having to jump in and out of camp which could sometimes progress certain events far too rapidly).

I could be wrong here, but I *think* TRoT only ships in one language per region. German is in, well, German, BeNeLux regions are in English, US is English, Italian is Italian and (if my memory is right) Spanish is Spanish. If there is a Spanish one, that is. There isn't an English release, funnily enough.
You might be able to get the audio files from those games and mix-and-match, but I wouldn't really know how or if it's possible, sorry :(

I have however come across a nice bug yesterday that may require me to start the entire necro zone again as I can't seem to access a boss fight after mucking it up the first time. This has severely dampened my will to play it for a bit (that and I find the undead armies somewhat underwhelming).

Finished SP&Z, ended more with a whimper than a grand hurrah but I cant really fault it, it was probably the right ending for most people who had barely given their ships orders up until that point.
Uninstalling it so it doesn't tempt me back too easily, but its certainly one I'll return to once they add more content.

About 6 hours in playing The Dark Spire. Running through the dungeon with just one Priest with the others dead, trying to get out while dragging their corpses alone was probably the hardest thing I've done in a DS game. Perservered, revived my party members in the temple one-by-one, and finally conquered the first floor of the Tower/Spire. Now, I'm killing Grave Robbers in the Basement. They're actually tougher than they look.
OTT, I always hated to save that Stalker at the Garbage. Not that I hated him, he tends to die almost every time I shot and killed one of the bandits. Spent 6 or so tries to actually save him.

With SP&Z filed away under P for "Put a fork in it, because it's done" I need to choose my next game to focus on. Deus Ex: Hilarious Radiation is a candidate but I'm almost ashamed to admit that boss fights you have to brawl with are required. In the original Deus Ex I didn't do boss fights, I either murdered the boss after a reload or laid a trap with plentiful explosives.
The Saboteur is my other thought, seamlessly swapping between pad and m&kb means a can drive the satisfyingly rickety cars with a pad and shoot with a mouse. It's WW2 GTA but it's still fun, not dry and not yet repetitive.
Also installed/close to hand is LA Noire, Crysis Warhead (with Crysis 2 waiting on origin), Liberty City: Episodes, 100% my Mass Effect 2 save in anticipation for ME3.
Ah to be less backlogged.

Dead Island. It's a horrible game, repetitve as hell, the rpg and open world parts were obviously tacked on in the last minute and the the story and narration are cringe worthy but I still managed to clock in a good 20 hours so far and I don't see myself putting it away any time soon.
Also, I must have bought DoW2:Retribution at some point, because I found it sitting in my steam list last night. Eventhough I can recognize that DoW2 is a good game, it never really clicked with me, the only reason why I played it at all for any length of time is the WH40K background. But I didn't like the Blood Ravens, so I couldn't be bothered to finish either the original nor Chaos Rising.
Anyway, I enjoyed the four or five missions I played with the Imperial Guard yesterday, though much of that enjoyment came from the simple fact that I was commanding Space Wehrmacht Soldaten talking with a posh british accent. "Drive me closer, I want to hit them with my sword!"
Apart from that I'm (always) playing Puzzle Quest on my phone of eyes. Stupid, pointless game, can't stop playing it.

So, I finally installed GalCiv2: Ultimate Edition, and gave it a spin in the early evening yesterday as a study break. Seriously, next thing I knew, it was 3 in the morning, and I had to be up at 6.
This game is crack. One more turn is an understatement. I can't believe I haven't played it before now.

Installed Arkham City and promptly found that the sound's not working properly on it. ¬_¬
And seemingly the problem has yet to be patched, which is ace.A brave heart and a courteous tongue. They shall carry thee far through the jungle, manling.
