I've been hearing a lot about Dishonored and how good it is. Might be worth checking out.

I've been playing a lot of Tokyo Jungle. So strangely addicting, even if some aspects of it can be extremely frustrating.

Telltale's The Walking Dead. Every episode I loved a little bit more than the next.

It's that time of year again: time for my annual Halloween Fatal Frame marathon! I have just started the first game.

My most recent was Yume Nikki, as far as I can recall. What can I say? I like weird, creepy stuff.

Dragged out the old Xbox to play some Knights of the Old Republic. The storyline's still what you expect from a BioWare game, but I seem to have forgotten just how clumsy and awkward the game's combat system and controls are. Mass Effect, this is not.

Still a good game, though.

Tried my hand at my brother's Dishonored. Surprisingly good.

Bioshock 2. I'm enjoying it and I got a great deal for it as part of a bundle of software.

Since I've been stuck at home the past few weeks, I decided to play straight through the entire Mass Effect series (yes, including Mass Effect: Galaxy ) And all the DLC (except Pinnacle Station, that one was pointless). I'm on ME3 now and am going to stop right before the assault on Illusive Man's base so that I can download the Omega DLC and play it then, rather than having to go back after I finish the game.

When I can escape the house...hopefully soon...I'm gonna pick up AC3 and Halo 4 next week.

I'm enjoying a little, mostly unknown gem for the NES by the name of Spiritual Warfare. Yes, it's a religious game. Yes, it's a Zelda ripoff. But to its credit, it does go beyond what the first LoZ game on the NES did. You get a map that's actually useful, varied environments, and an assortment of different weapons, called "Fruits of the Spirit" (the banana is easily the best, as it should be). The game does have many of the problems of the game it copies and goes crazy on its use of bombs (which are called "Vials of God's Wrath"--yes, really), but it's definitely fun and worth a try, especially since you can find it free to play on the website of the developer, Color Dreams.

Assassin's Creed III. Amazing storyline and loads of fun, plus "Borgia" has become my favorite word of the day/week/month.

Currently playing Monster Hunter Tri which is the first non-casual game I've played in years (haven't had the spare cash for anything capable of running modern games).
So much fun.

Bioshock 2, which is the first game I've played to the end in a while.

I suspect it's going to become what the first System Shock was for me; a game I played every day because I enjoyed playing so much.

I'll never be playing 'evil' though. I can't hurt little girls, no how, no way.

Currently playing Assassin's Creed 2. Now I remember how annoying the game was in places, particularly about the mouse + keyboard controls. If I misjump one more time backwards I will let out an angry little yelp.

Skyrim just keeps sucking me back in, to the point now I'm just wandering and filling out the few undiscovered locations on the map. And doing radiant quests for loot.

Deadspace 2 - *shat* myself, but it was worth it! The first one was scarier though, but with surround sound headphones, you can't go wrong!

Recently, I've played some of my favorite classic Super Nintendo RPG's: Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana. Such classics. One of these days, I need to get my hands on Final Fantasy II and III (or whatever their actual numbers are).
