Someone who shalt not be named gave me the short version of the Trading Cards FAQ (the whole concept I found to be so boring I couldn't get to keep my attention on it), so I'm now into the time honored tradition of idling.
As a side effect I've beaten all the basic levels in McPixel in one sitting. I'm getting the parody of adventure and hidden object games, but its crude variant of slapstick comedy is hit and miss for me, mostly miss: I had a couple of chuckles at the beginning but then the game falls in a pattern of kick mostly everything, piss on what's left, try to be illogical. It still managed to surprise me here and there with its twisted logic, and it's kind of cute - might still go back to it instead of just idling the remaining cards.

I was trying Firefall for a few hours, which doesn't seem that bad despite its horrendous UI and tutorial, but then the game decided to delete my character out of the blue.
Not sure I'll bother with it then.

Puzzle Quest 2 that I picked up for two quid in the sale. It's actually pretty good.

Took a break from my first playthrough of Baldur's Gate (GOG modded 1&2) to knock Torchlight 2 off my unplayed Steam list. Runic really managed to nail the formula with the sequel. They could make the same game again with a new story and I'd be first in line to buy it.
Trying to enjoy Tomb Raider but it's not quite hitting the spot, not sure why. Seems a decent enough mindless platformy shooter. Perhaps I'm just getting old. Though I did love Far Cry 3 and that had a hilariously bad story.
And stumbling around in Total War: Shogun 2, trying to figure out the mechanics. I've only just learned that soldiers can scale fort walls. I had my entire army trying to blow through one doorway, to hilariously poor (but ultimately victorious) effect.

Playing Borderlands 2 and not quite getting into it. Something is off with the difficulty curve. I'm either having no problems at all or are proper fucked. It somehow seems a step backwards from the first game. Sure there are more types of guns, but that seems to mean that most things I find are shit. About 10 hours in and I have no cool things; no blue gun which feels unique to me and gives me a sense of power; no orange gun I found 3 levels back and is starting to get a bit obsolete but damn it I'll keep using it anyway. Think I'll have to spot it with another game so I don't get bored. Might finally be time for another KOTOR2 playthrough.

The difference with the 0.7 patch (current) is threefold:
-Resources are now also rewarded for mission running, which is far more exciting than its EVE Counterpart. ARES missions are pretty varied, occur randomly all over the map, are easy to find and people tend to group together pretty quickly for difficult ones.
-The player market is now open. Players can sell not only Thumped (Mined) resources, but also gear, including weapons, etc. Now one no longer needs to thump to get what they need.
-Progression in 0.6 required each frame to use a certain resource type for every unlock above a certain tier. No longer. Now, all frames require gas for one type of unlock, minerals for another and organics for a third. So you have FAR more options in terms of resources to use to unlock/upgrade frame abilities now, as opposed to the last patch.
TL;DR: Where Firefall once forced everyone to Thump for resources several nights per week, one is now free to play the game the way they wish and still progress. Not that progression is really the point. Dynamic, ever changing events rotating in and out, and random occurrences that will never happen exactly the same ever again, in a world with excellent art and amazing, immersive ambient sounds, is the real point of playing Firefall. Progression is just a happy aside to what is quickly becoming a very fun open world game.

And for crying out loud just avoid the new game plus mode, or "True Vault Hunter" mode, as its called. It just ups health bars, gives more enemies shields and elemental resistances and in general provides every enemy with a boss-fight-like health bar the whole game through. Its really, really awful.

Did a lot of Surgeon Simulator this morning while grabbing the cards
Also been playing some Path of Exile. I must say, I really like it.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Brave New World awaits.
I am also in the process of learning to setup a Garry's Mod server with Prop Hunt. We try to do a casual game night on Mondays and a friend suggested it. Few of us got the CS:S/Garry's bundle during the flash sale.

I've bought a few games in the Steam Summer Sale that I'd been looking forward to playing, but I've instead been absorbed in the world of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. I don't know how much of that is a fit of nostalgia, but so far it's been very fun indeed."He has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to
the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free". ~ Luke 4:18

gnh. Not having much luck finding something to play that grabs me lately.
Spent a day figuring out how to bypass the CD check in No One Lives Forever (without using a crack) and how to stop my system from scaling 1280x960 to 1920x1080 and once I had it working kind of lost interest.
Played one level of Super Meat Boy and uninstalled it. I should know by now that platformers just aren't my thing at all anymore.
Got annoyed with the keybindings setup in Hotline Miami and lost interest.
Spent a while installing mods for Skyrim and when it all seemed to be working I got distracted by something else.
Minerva for Half-Life 2 hadn't worked right for ages (and the fix didn't fix it), so I installed the new version, checked that it works (it does) and lost interest.
Got killed by the first zombie you meet in The Walking Dead because I was backing up into something I couldn't see which blocked me so I couldn't get away. Lost interest.
Psychonauts, Alan Wake, Saints Row 3 (had played the first bit before, but once I got to the game proper on my laptop, I got so sudden and severe FPS drops that it was unplayable. It seems to work on my new desktop) seemed sort of interesting, but ...
Scribblenauts Unlimited is probably the game that has managed to keep my interest for the longest lately, but that's only for an hour and a half or so, with lots of breaks.
Granted, I guess it's not only about games; I can't really focus on anything lately, but it's rather frustrating.

It was mostly that it felt like quite a shift; up until then everything's been slow and just about clicking on things and then it suddenly changes to something more action-ish, which I didn't expect from the game.
Try Fahrenheit? Game starts, you just murdered someone in a diner bathroom, and there's a cop right outside. Instant hookage.
