    Can't be letting the PC gamers have all the fun.

    What are people currently playing then?

    Got myself a cheap copy of Enslaved for the 360 and I have to admit it's a better experience than I thought it would be. I wasn't too taken with the demo (essentially the 1st chapter) but it does get a lot more interesting. R.U.S.E. (again, cheap) is also waiting for a play through.

    Dungeon Siege 3 on PS3. Waiting for Under Siege patch so I can play that one. Really feel like some RTS. Had a look at Swords & Soldiers - not sure about it. Demo is quite limited, but they only offer 30 campaign levels so I've already seen a tenth! Didn't seem very controllable. Then again it's only £3

    Section 8 Prejudice ! and I have to tell u guys that the Swarm mode, bascially horde +Tower defence, is a blast to play ! Extremely fun and addictive ! I have to say, its a lot like what STARHAWK is promising, even the turrets and vehicles that you spawn also fall down from the sky just like they showed in the Starhawk vids.
    Haven't played much of the campaign, seemed okay, nothing special and kindof like an iPad/iPhone game at the beginning. but the Swarm is too much fun:cool: ! Will try competitive MP if I get a chance.

    ALso, played the Stacking demo, and I seem to love the game ! A very Happy and lovingly crafted game ! Will buy it someday.
    Want to play Infamous 2, but somehow never do it.

    Halo 2 (on 360).

    It's the only Halo game I've not beat yet so I figured I should do that.

    Just finished Portal 2, never want to see another portal game again, basically. Was pretty much torture for the most part forcing myself to finish it, but I felt I had a duty too. Pretty much vowed never to buy another portal game.

    Alice: Madness Returns (360) - I finished American McGee's Alice two days ago and enjoyed it despite being an old game with some really outdated mechanics and today I'll start playing Madness Returns.
    Demon's Souls - Planning to visit Valley Of Defilement for the first time.
    Medal of Honor (PC) - Installed this one a few days ago and I've played about 20 minutes...it looks decent.

    I've been switching between Magic (360), Dirt (PS3), Bastian (360), and Kill Team (360).

    Just got done playing through Dungeon Siege 3. Going to let it marinate for awhile before I go back with a different character. All the games have been very enjoyble.

    I just got back, so nothing basically except GOW Ghost of Sparta on PSP.
    I've been watching the EVO fighting tournament, so I'll probably jump back in to MVC3.

    Anyone got that Warhammer Live Arcade game, I think it's called Kill Team? SP demo was ok, but it seems like it would be more fun in co-op.

    Bastion and GT5 - I'm going to go to the Nurburgring again with my Dad somewhere next month, renting a Stage 2 Swift Sport this time so I've been buying, speccing and testing a Swift Sport on the Ring in GT5. :)

    Finished Borderlands on the PS3. Entertaining enough, but also pretty dumb and a little too repetitive for its own good.

    That was my take. Felt a bit of a chore to finish it. I'm not sure whether the procedurally generated weapons really helped much either. *shurg* I know some people adore it but I though it was only OK.

    :oops: I know I'm late to the party but I really don't like the suspense/horror games but a buddy promised that RE5 was more of a "paced shooter" lol. We finished it in co-op and I must say I really enjoyed that game.

    occasionally I drop in AC:Brotherhood,

    I tried From dust and Bastion and may pull the trigger on one of those.

    Didn't really help me much, that's for sure. Like with most procedurally generated stuff, 99% of it was complete crap and generally worse than the stuff I was already carrying. I usually went hours before finding something worthwhile, and most of the more outlandish mods were unfortunately more goofy than practical (like a shotgun that spits out a row of bouncing pellets). I did enjoy the corrosive weapons though. Very cruel and satisfying, and generally accompanied by adequately chilling death screams.

    Still, 15 bucks for Borderlands and all of its dlc add-ons was a generous enough offer. I feel I got my money's worth.

    Now playing Limbo on the PS3.
