Eh? I just criticised DA:O too, and I like that game.

She was never hidden. She was barely even coy. Hell, she herself says that the way she dealt with nosy nancies is to kill 'em, and easily.

I'm beginning to think nobody is going to congratulate me for that Maleficent comparison.

I gave the new "indie" title 'Warp' a try on the consoleboxofXs earlier (it's Origin-only on PC atm, coming to Steam in a month-or-so apparently) and it's - well - it's "interesting".
Visually, it's a treat and it has a sense of humour and plenty of "oh wow that was NEAT" bits - but there are some NASTY design issues which, by the time the demo ran out, had pretty much worn me out.
1 - Without spoiling anything, you 'warp' around and you can 'warp' inside things and break them. To break them you have to 'waggle' the left stick - and you have to do this a LOT. Frankly, I was utterly pissed-off doing this after about 2 minutes, just make it a button press please, I'm not a performing seal...
2 - It likes loading stuff quite a bit, it's not so bad in the main levels, but it has these challenge levels where you have to complete objectives as quickly as possible and it reloads those EVERY time you try them AND makes you wait for a countdown before you can go. This is a massive, massive, massive ballache - esp on levels where there are only obstables to avoid and nothing to move/destroy (e.g. they DON'T NEED TO RELOAD THE BLOODY LEVEL)
3 - Quite a lot of bits will require some experimentation BUT checkpoints aren't too frequent which means you'll be repeating a fair bit of stuff. It's not a disaster but it does kinda grind a bit when you have to redo stuff in a what's basically a puzzle game.
Those things are a shame in what's otherwise a very imaginative and visually attractive thing - they're really schoolboy mistakes IMO and they're not unredeemable (and may be less of a problem on PC - who knows!!)

Here are my experiences with the free weekend for Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer, if anybody cares:
My first and only game look a minute to find a match, a minute to start the match while putting all level one players on the same team against three level 80 players on the other team, then we finally started playing. A few minutes into the match, one guy starts calling out someone else for hacking. The accused guy keeps on saying "mad" repeatedly. Then the angry guy begins throwing out insults and curses left and right, culminating with "go die a slow death you jew ass pussies."
I uninstalled the game as soon as my match ended. As they say, Never Again.

One of my favourite games ever. Don't think any other game has come close to capturing the feeling of sheer speed that GX has. Its arcade brother - AX - is amazing too, the cabinet it was housed in really added to the game.
CoD4: MW was the last CoD game I played and I loved it. The multiplayer lasted me a good eighteen months to two years. Very few games capture the reflexive nature of multiplayer CoD, I take it the sequels still retain this?
One of my favourite gaming moments happened in a CoD4 tffa game. It was on the aircraft hangars level with the nuke silos, Countdown I think? Somehow, just one enemy and me found each other at close range with him carrying a P90 and me a Skorpion in a corner of the map. We circle strafed each other perfectly emptying our clips and not landing a shot. Both of us went to reload but halfway through my reload I found myself charging him and knifed him. Pure instinct. I wasn't even thinking, it was one of those Batman like "I just did it" moments.
And this was on hardcore mode.

You do get hack accusers and occasion griefers but administrators usually fix that in short order.
This is part of why dota is such a breeding ground for contempt, no admins ever.

Loaded up my save in DA:O this week, and have been really enjoying getting back into it. I abandoned it about 18 months ago after I hit some issues with the DLC and a corrupt save game, meaning I lost all the items and storage benefits from the Warden's Keep DLC.
Someone said that they're not that great anyhow, so I'm just ploughing on without them, and having a blast so far. I've just finished saving the boy Conor and am now trapsing round Denerim looking for trouble.. and a Sacred Urn. Great stuff.

Still playing Amalur, still enjoying it. The only gripe I have is that sometimes I end up launching into a move I didn't want by accident and then I get hugely punished for it because I can't blink out of trouble or use my shield til its done its animation. This is where I take 99% of my damage against kobolds from, with their bloody spears and bombs.

I have to agree with Heliocentric here -- my 200+ hours in TF2 and about 50 hours in Bad Company 2 never had stuff that bad.

I'm finally going through the list of Steam games I own but never played.
Finished Ass Creed 1 & 2.
1 got boring quite quickly so I skipped most of the extra missions.
2 Was much better and I did a large majority of the side missions.
I'm looking forward to getting brotherhood and playing that at some point in the near future.
Today I started on Rage, which was an absolute bitch to get running. It took me a good hour of searching for the right settings for my graphics card to get the game to not judder or have the textures constantly flicker.
Once it was running the game seemed pretty fun although I didn't get long to try it out before work.
The pistol with the Fatboy rounds is very satisfying.

Ok so.. I've bought a copy of Borderlands to my multiplayer pal because the group I've played with before kinda dropped on this game and I really wanted to finish it BUT we can't connect in the friggin' game! I really don't know what to do.. We tried Hamachi, Gameranger but nothing works.. We tried it every possible way - online play, LAN game, me as a host, then he - everything! But it just doesn't work.. So currently I am playing nothing and my blood pressure is somewhere between "heart attack" and "dead." GAH!

Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer, I'll play the Single when I own the game. This is pretty good, but which departmental chimp decided peer to peer was a good idea?
I actually had lots of fun once the other players quit and I was by myself, with the resulting 0 ping game.
By myself i had a ball of a time, leaping from cover to cover fighting enemies. I can see this being great, but my god, peer to peer, are these people really that stupid?

I too had that concern with it being P2P, especially considering the last foray into small-scale P2P co-op of Space Marine, but this seemed to work pretty well for me. It was either no connection, a bit of lag before migrating host or fine. Sure it would be nice, but it seems to run rather well.

Let's see, I just finished "Zombie Shoot 1." It's pretty awful. All the enemies get stuck on walls, and there's a particularly horrible bug where bullets can't pass through each other so if groups of enemies are shooting at you their bullets will stop yours mid air. Plus, all bullets/missiles fired by enemies immediately hone to the player no matter what, which is kind of frustrating. Also, it's basically just killing massive waves of enemies who a re all clumped into tiny rooms with no ryhme or reason or consideration of strategy or placement. It's only saving grace is that the gore effects are kind of neat and it's very short--like 2 hours (plus I got it in a bundle, so I paid hardly anything for it).
I'm actually kind of shocked that Valve accepted it at all to sell on steam--it's that bad.
I did finish the first Blackwell game a few days ago, though, and that was awesome. One of the better adventure games I've played in ages. I even liked it better than Gemini Rue.
