I finally caved and sailed to the bay for Dark Souls. Because I stubbornly refuse to pay for anything with GFWL and wanted to see what all you young'uns are raving about. It's helped wash away the nasty aftertaste of Far Cry 3. It is now clear to me my experience as a Lann in Vindictus was for a purpose as I dodge roll away from comically oversized swords. If the sequel arrives sans GFWL it's almost bound to be a day one buy.
Nabbed Spec Ops The Line during a sale because that is one of the best stories a game has ever told. I'm finding my K/M much easier to use than a controller.
And slowing getting other friends to pick up Planetside 2 so it'll actually be playable. No one seems to realize the game has a built-in VOIP system and it's kind of a necessity.
