I'm playing ARMA III, diablo 3 and hawken.
Playing ARMA is actually, learning ARMA:)

I just finished Arkham Asylum (yeah yeah, a little late to the party) with 100% of the Riddler challenges and now I'm starting on Arkham City.
Kind of wary that playing both back to back might get me burned out on the series... on the other hand, that could also be a good thing if it convinces me to wait for a Christmas Sale on Arkham Origins.

So Sid Meier's Ace Patrol is really good. Really really good. There's a lot of content, and the gameplay is very well done. I feel like I'm playing Red Baron, only without a joystick and with no need for reflexes.

Thanks for this! You just reminded me that I bought this game, and also, that I read about the Steam Achievement crash being fixed. Going back to this tonight after work, as it really is excellent!
Other than Ace Patrol, currently playing:
-Bioshock Infinite. Bought for $13.59 in the recent sale. And I must say, as linear shooters go, its quite good. Excellent in places. Great gun play, and the sky rails are fun. The vigors are varied and while not needed as such, are fun to use. Highly recommended, but would wait for a sale price.
-Firefall Beta. I don't know what it is with this game. Its repetitive, and a little grindy. The devs claim open beta. Really, its more what you would expect from an open Alpha, just with (slightly) more to do than the usual alpha. Character wipes are long over and I get a bit of open world, and a jetpack right from the get go. Plus, they've got the Heavy Gunner (Dreadnaught), Sniper classes, bunny hopping AoE, standard FPS Combat Rifle class...if you like to play it in a shooter, its probably here. Sure it gets repetitive if you play long enough at a stretch, but I have found in small doses two or three nights per week that Firefall is quite the fun game to play, made all the more so by the whopping investment of Zero Pennies.

Shitty title - awesome game!
From Arcen Games this is a Rogue-lite (think Dredmor) with a Battletech / mech type theme and Drox Operative style loot upgrades. Very fucking addictive! Can't understand why I hadn't heard of this one before now.

Been Playing jak and Daxter on the vita, the first one. i am in the spider cave. I hate that place, it's really hard. I finally gave up on some of the power cores there and I am going to collect the ones I need for the lava tube elsewhere.
Still a really good platformer.

Version 0.13 of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup - in my eyes the undisputed queen of roguelikes - is live, and for those who enjoy such things the tournament starts this weekend. There's a new race, the gargoyle, new layouts for the main dungeon and branches and plenty of other changes. I'll probably be spending a fair chunk of the next fortnight trying to nick high-scores on obscure and lesser-played combinations.

You get upgrades, and as your pilots rack up kills they learn new maneuvers. There are 4 lenghty, semi-random campaigns, the game is cartoonish and pretty and it has that "WWI air war was really about flying knights" vibe, just like Red Baron. It's a bit sanitized (downed pilots don't die, they just remain unavailable for a few missions).
I know I'm not doing a good job of describing it, but it's excellent fun if you like turn-based games, I swear! Also, here's Tim Stone raving about it as well.

Still Knock-Knock. Four playthroughs later and I'm still not quite sure how everything works.

It's not the game of the century but damn it's really really good and I love the small animations and I cheer when I'm in a position to do a crazy manoeuver that completely destroys an enemy plane and I like it when I get to use the Ace "MEGAROLL SUPER CRAZY DODGE MOVE" manoeuver that saves my ass while making me feel like I'm the greatest fighter in the world.
Heartily recommand this game ! (thanks Faldrath !)

The Bureau: XCOM Whatever.
Lovely atmosphere, until you face the shitty aliens. I hate their design, it was boring and generic in last year's strategy and it's even worse here.
The gameplay is worse than the first Mass Effect's. Shooting is deeply unsatisfying. That would be OK if it weren't for the completely retarded agents you have to babysit. They keep peeking out of cover while enemies fire at their position, charge straight through enemy groups... It's unplayable. Every alien is made out of adamantium and the weapons lack accuracy. I have to Forrest Gump my way through the battlefield in search of ammo whenever I face more than five enemies.
I really like the world because it's as beautiful and detailed as I expected from BioShock 2's creators. I could wander around the levels, find collectibles and talk to people all day long. The action part of the game is a complete disaster... And now it started skipping lines during conversations. They're not even subtitled.
Got it for 8 pounds on SimplyCDKeys. I regret the purchase.
The XCOM FPS looked like the best thing in the world. I don't really mind the change to a third person game, and I could live with bad action (I mean shooting at black goo looked bad even back then so I wasn't expecting much). Unfortunately it's ruined by the shitty Firaxis alien design, atrocious AI and bugs.

The FPS version would have been a thousand times better. Shame they didn't release that stream of the game under a different label (ie X-Files: Roswell Conspiracy etc) and continued on with it. Looked like a far superior game to what ended up.Bipolar Game: http://store.steampowered.com/app/463450/

I'm currently playing Knock-Knock. I like the games surreal horror feeling.[I]But where did he come from, this fleck of spite in an abandoned paradise?[/I]

Mass Effect 3: Omega DLC. A lengthy discussion about the game with a friend has rekindled my interest, and I figured giving the DLC I had so far avoided a try wouldn't be such a bad thing. Turns out it isn't, and I'm already looking forward to playing the game in its entirety again.
I'm also eyeing the Assassin's Creed III sale on Steam, but I'm determined to wait until I've finished my AC-backlog."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

Playing XCOM Enemy Unkown right now, as I bought it at launch, but hadn´t been able to play more than 5-10 hours.
I was going to play the Mass Effect trilogy from the start, but Mass Effect 1 refuses to launch from that Origin thing :(
