Recently got Driver:San Francisco in a sale and thought 'meh' at first - then managed to get my ancient Saitek gamepad working and now it's more like 'Woohoo!'. I haven't played a driving game on the PC for many years and it's really excellent fun and the acting pretty amusing. Though as the review on RPS said, the speedo seems to be a bit generous, it does help if you use bumpercam.
I'm also working slowly through Tropico4 which is my first Tropico game and enjoying it hugely. Very silly but it's good to have a totally different (for me) setting for an RTS
Tactical Tuesdays have rekindled my excitement for ARMA2 and as I now have a slightly better rig than when I originally played it (and thanks to various tweaking guides) I've been getting back into it. I'm still rubbish in multiplayer though. Also DayZ scared the bejesus out of me but I will have another go at it...

The Walking Dead game. It's really, really good. They've basically created an interactive movie like Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy) or Heavy Rain. Not much gameplay to be had, but plenty of dialogue and player choice which looks to be carried over in subsequent episodes.

Still playing Divinity II DKS and thoroughly enjoying it. My only real complaint is that, before you can become a dragon there are some choices you have to make in terms of deciding who wins (lives) in some particular quests. The problem is that it doesn't look like there will be any consequences to those choices because after you can become a dragon, something occurs in the game world that seems like it would make all of those scenarios moot.

Playing the Binding of Isaac because I want to kill mom before the expansion comes out. I keep dying in Depths I. It's a really awesome game and I like the challenge. I knew I would love it when it came out but I didn't feel like I had the time for it with Skyrim and BF3.

You mean killing Mom over and over to get the different endings? Ill probably still get it on day 1 because it'll motivate me to beat the vanilla stuff.

So, Saints Row the Third.
It's... both better and worse than I expected. I think the developers need to learn a lot more about the female figure and female clothing, but... it's not too bad otherwise. At least it hasn't suffered from an Arkham City in that the 'thugs' all run around shouting "bitch" at you.
- Ability to make your own character.
- Cars handle unrealistically but it's very easy to get used to. Not perfect, though.
- Game has the ability to make you cry with laughter.
- Pistols feel like a capable weapon (albeit too capable)
- Good variety of missions and activities
- Helicopter that doesn't need a controller to be piloted!
- World is a fair size. Smaller than GTA IV, Just Cause 2 et al, yet doesn't feel too small.
- Faith No More's "Epic" as a radio song
- Main character is pretty awesome
- Clothing quality is very, very inconsistent, and there's only one of each 'fringe' shop (at least where I am) but a billion Planet Saints
- Character creation is too slider-based, meaning getting good looks is hard unless you put a LOT of time into it, and even then you'll think you did a crap job as soon as the first cutscenes happen.
- Combat seems a bit too DA2-esque in that there's ridiculous waves of enemies more often than not.
- It feels like it's lacking a layer of polish expected for an AAA release.
- Lots of clipping issues. Long coats hang out from under cars, pedestrians/objects can get stuck 'in' cars.
- Graphic quality is made worse by additional effects; little control over the 'advanced' graphics settings
- Unless I'm missing cutscenes, it feels as though a fair bit of the 'story' isn't being explained - it just happens.

Just started playing Bulletstorm, although in the hour and a half since I decided to start playing it, I feel I've spent longer editing some of its files so it doesn't run badly. Firing a gun for longer than a second seemed to halve the frame rate. It's all on full, but my PC should be able to run it with no problem. I also found out how to disable the intro videos, what with them being incredibly loud and annoying.
Anyhow, the game itself. Obviously, just started, but it looks nice, plays well, but seems incredibly linear. I also just ran into a glitch, which isn't terribly fun. Still, I wanted to get this out of the way from my backlog and I'm having fun, so that's what matters. As it goes, the GFWL integration isn't too bad, if you have no intention of taking it online, which I don't.

I finished Diablo 3 on Normal with a Barbarian.
Worst story ever. At least other bad stories are inoffensive but this is a tragedy. It takes itself so seriously and it's delivered so badly - it manages to ruin a brilliant game. I am very disappointed. Blizzard needs to add options to make the game STFU and stop dumping exposition and dialogue, otherwise I can't see myself playing it too much. As much as I like the gameplay, everything related to the story, dialogues and lore is driving me mad.

Also, you can re-work your image - sliders and all - from any Image As Design shop, which acts as an on-the-fly character generator. Consequently,
