Attempts to replay the game have run into complete apathy, but that's the one thing I wish I hadn't missed.

I've been dabbling a little with Drox Operative's beta. Neat idea, very Soldak execution (that is, at first glance it's Din's in space, though there's actually more to it than that). It's got enormous potential, and I think I'm going to step back and let it develop a bit more before I play it seriously. $15 well spent, though.
I'm still playing Hegemony: Gold, and it's still pretty awesome. I'm having some issues keeping track of everything, though, as my empire gets larger. I need to figure out whether the problem is that I don't know how to use the interface, or that the interface isn't up to the task.
In co-op, I've been relearning Sins (now with the two expansions) to see if my opinion of it has reason to change. I find it's a game that I enjoy thinking about playing more than I enjoy playing it. I'm still not really sure where I'm at with it, but the fact that I check the clock quite a bit as I'm playing probably doesn't bode well.

Alice: Madness returns.
Tis very pretty and I am enjoying the multi jumpyness but whilst some areas look fantastic in their design, others are a bit bland (I'm on chapter 3/6 atm). Combat is a bit basic and the lock on a bit iffy but nothing too bad, apart from that it seems fairly solid if a little repetitive. May post some screenies in the other thread if I can be bothered :]

And I've completed Psychonauts. The ending is heart-warming, entertaining and down-right brilliant, although I'm not entirely convinced of the final level. I didn't much appreciate the mini escort quest or the platforming to obstacles at a bend in 3D, however I'll let it all slip for the sheer creativity of the level itself. The whole game is great and generally a joy to play. Whilst I didn't 100% it, I will take solace in the fact that I recovered [spoiler]all the brains[/spoiler], so that's something. That being said, I do think there were a few too many collect-a-thons, although like pretty much everything else in the game, they were worked in magnificently. Nothing in the game didn't work and it all felt like it belonged.
It's not too hard to see why people would want a sequel, especially on the hilarious note it ends on.

@JG Man: there's a small extra cutscene for 100% completion, but if you can't be bothered, I suppose it'd be easy to youtube it.

About 6 hours into Sniper Elite V2 and loving it. Multiplayer is awesome too.

After 24h in LA Noire (= I've just begun the last case at Vice, with plenty of driving and messing around), the repetition is starting to get me. The peak of my enjoyment so far was the Studio Secretary Murder case. Also, I'm missing Rusty "who shoved that riddle book up your ass" Galloway.

I think the game might not be 4X enough for you, sadly enough. What sort of skirmish setups have you been playing so far? If you're finding things a bit too prosaic then all I can suggest is playing some crazy games: 8 players in 4 teams of 2 over 2-3 stars sort of thing. Then there'd hopefully be enough going on - even just in little things like scouting - to occupy you. I reckon it'd allow the diplomatic side of things to open up more too.

Playing Civ5 in anticipation of Gods/Kings, usually as China.
In the current match, I chose an Earth map and ended up starting in India. I expanded over India and Persia, found America in China, noticed they build more cities than anybody, and ended up taking over Chicago and razing San Francisco somewhere in the Tibetan highlands. Got stalled by Dublin, America's client state, high in the Himalayas. Signed a peace agreement on my terms, and immediately started suggesting to the Songhai in Vietnam to attack them while they were weakened so I could focus on buddying up with my client states in Thailand and Sri Lanka. Right now, pretty much all my borders are mountains, I'm just about to start pumping out zhugenus, and I have three generals to make citadels with, making the Great Wall I built rather redundant. I can pretty much harass anybody at will from my fortress of solitude!

I swear AssRev has the longest credit section I have ever seen. Those ran for at least fifteen minutes. Interestingly enough, it seems they hired an actual historian this time. Also, there is someone in the world named Stone Chin.

Just started playing SpaceChem again after a while and several computer transfers. Goddamn it is good. The puzzles are just so... mesmerizing. I feel like my brain is amazing when I solve them, especially the special challenges, and I find myself just thinking about the puzzles and playing that music in my head over and over.
I am taking a break for a couple days, though. I went a bit overboard this weekend and fell behind on some projects and mostly on sleep. And I'm a little worried that as the puzzles get bigger and harder (I'm at the end of the third planet, I believe?) it's going to feel really daunting to start each new challenge.

Started Saints Row The Third finally. Not many hours in thanks to all the footie, but blasting throgh this shouldnt take too long. Playing also some Runespell Overture. Neat poker puzzle quest. It is not real poker, but there is some tactics with the powerups and timing.
Tried also playiny R.U.S.E. on 360, but that was horrible. Could maybe tackle the controls and the odd checkpoints with lower difficulty, but churning through the campaign which I understood is quite long on Easy does not sound too tempting. Had bought this while ago, but I've upgraded my PC since that. So surely would be able to run in now on the superior platform. Maybe if its comes on a Steam sale. This copy is going to the local charity shop.

Alternatively, if you still think it could be a problem, play with the Game Options sliders to slow down research rates or income - http://sinsofasolarempire.wikia.com/wiki/Game_Options.
