Strongly considering another playthrough of Thief 2. I'm feeling the need for some kind of steampunkish universe ahead of Dishonoured. I dabbled with Arcanum but it just made me want to die. Also repeating the Divine Divinity experience. I tend to find new things whenever I play it again and I'm genuinely sad that the forthcoming prequel is going to ditch the combat and go turn-based. It's like they're doing everything they can kill what made the original good, first the terrible Draconis modifications and now this. The original just works. It's everything that's great about Diablo but with a decent story and an open-world. How can you go wrong with that?

Started a replay of Arkham Asylum. I remember someone praising it as "the best 3D implementation of a Metroidvania game"... The difference is that the best games of that ilk provide a genuine reason to go out of your way and backtrack to uncover new areas. I find Detective Mode offensive (and my doubts about Hitman: Absolution are resurfacing) and the one-button AssCreed combat rather boring, so I probably won't get all the way through it again. How much does City improve on these areas? And do the boss battles still actively insult my intelligence?

If you don't like Asylum, you won't like City.

After checking the Fallout 3 GOTY for Vinraith, I ended up playing it. Some eight hours into it so far, mostly just exploring, and I think I kind of prefer it over New Vegas. It's been a while since I played NV, but it felt sort of too crowded for a wasteland and perhaps the Vegas thing also didn't grab me (it never really does, in movies or games).
NV probably is better written, though (I'm mixing up too many memories of FO3 with those of NV, so I'm not quite sure yet).

I would also like to mention that the Riddler Hostage situations have some very cool puzzles and room design. I just rescued the fourth and it was like a scene from Saw.
@sabrage. The combat is improved in City, you have more variation in enemies; dudes with knifes, riot shields, stun sticks, padded armor which all require a different type of approach.
Boss battles in City are also an improvement which is a lot more than just dodge+ bataring.
And City is less linear and is more a sandbox game with lots of side missions and collectibles which provide little short stories of characters and Gotham.

And I don't think it's all that strange that Fallout felt small to you. Fallout is small. Even if you end up doing everything it'll still only take you ten to fifteen hours. The sequel is almost twice as large and even that pales when compared to 3 or New Vegas in terms of content. Though I liked the way they handled travelling. The map is a bit abstract, but it does a good job of conveying that you're actually walking long distances. By comparison, Fallout 3 felt really tiny at times because you could walk from one corner of the world to the next in ten minutes.

I'm playing Rage, the shooting bits are quite enjoyable. But the whole megatexture thing is a catastrophe, the constant resharpening when higher resolution stuff is streamed in is terrible.

Driver: SF is playable on a keyboard for me, and really fun. My only problem with it is the blatant rubberbanding cops make a showcase of.
Darksiders is proving to be great.

You know what,Darksiders 2!! is proving to be even greater! :x

This weekend I finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution and followed it up by playing through The Walking Dead (both episodes) and Dear Esther. I have no idea what to play next, maybe Warlock for a change of pace or perhaps Max Payne 3 for shooty goodness.

What can cause high ping,i was trying CSS few minutes ago and ping was like 180. I also played TF2 today and i had normal ping,also i'm not downloading anything. :x

Distance from server, bandwidth (ie. if you're downloading something in the background) etc.
I started up Crysis 2. My oh my, it sure is a pretty game, isn't it? Let me rephrase, during the pre-title sequence, I think my jaw was hanging loosely. Jesus. So pretty. Not that far in, only completed the first level, but I'm enjoying it so far. A lot of the suit stuff that's been streamlined is taking a short time to get used to, but I feel is generally better. There's a couple of things I don't like, such as the speed boost being automatically applied to sprint (I'd want it as an addition) and armour being a constant drain, such that your default state is kinda weak. Other than that, it seems to be pretty good. The actual level design is wider than I was led to believe. I'm excited!
