Lots of things! I just got a shiny new G74SX (it is so beautiful) and I've been using it to play a variety of different things:
- Alien vs. Predator
Just playing it for the alien campaign, really.
I grabbed it in a sale for a few quid.
On my second play through of this.
- Batman: Arkham City
There are a lot of things that bug me about this one. It's not a perfect game but it is fun. It's not been taking up a whole lot of my play time, though. Just a bit, here and there.
I picked it up in a sale for around ten quid.
- Book of Unwritten Tales
A wonderful little point & click adventure. Not as funny as it could be, but definitely full of charm.
- Dead Space & 2
I always was a fan of the Dead Space games, I've extolled their virtues over on RPS many times, and I'm currently replaying them now that I can do so with stupid levels of graphical goodness.
You must look into this. It's a game about a malevolent dirt entity that's taking over the world, afflicting animals, people, and critters and corrupting them. The only ones that can stop them? Street cleaners and sweepers with various cleaning tools.
I am not making this up.
This is pretty fun. I get a definite Megaman vibe from it, yet so different.
- Fortune Summoners
This is just a beautiful little thing. It's only the demo but I look forward to the actual game coming out. I've put far, far too much time into this one.
I love playing this in co-op. But then, I just like dragons.
- Jolly Rover
I never did get around to completing this entertaining poing & click game, I'm working on it, though.
- L.A. Noire
It often comes across as a bit of a substandard version of the Phoenix Wright games and there's a lot they could have done better. But there's also a lot which is pretty decent and fun. I'm poking away at it in my own time.
This game is EVIL. EVIL, EVIL, EVIL. But I still love it. Plus it reminds me of Batteries Not Included, and that's never a bad thing.
This... how to explain. This is about an overweight every-man who's out to save his co-workers from a disaster and thwart a conspiracy. He has a gravity gun-like device that does that better than Half-Life 2 did, and it has some of the best use of gravity I've ever seen in a game.
It's like Trine in some respects, but nowhere near as frustrating or annoying, you never lose because of poor controls or awkward level design. As much as I loved Trine, this is better, because it flows better and the design of the puzzles and levels and generally just superior.
It's not easy though, there are some parts that will make you feel like a bit of an idiot. But it feels you like screwing up, not like the game is, which is a feeling I got from Trine occasionally.
I urge everyone to give the demo of this a go.
- Saints Row: The Third
Completely ridiculous. I have an overweight guy in a mascot suit who can parachute out of a helicopter, land on a truck, and surf on it. It's just silly on every level. I've been having a lot of fun just screwing around in it and seeing what I can do.
- Shadow Era
I absolutely love this one. My tagline for it? It's Magic: The Gathering, but less wallet-raping and with better mechanics. In fact, it's superior to Magic in just about every conceivable way. It's more accessible to newcomers, and definitely more fun to play, but it's also trickier to master because ultimately there's a more complex game lying under that accessible exterior.
It's also very friendly to visually disabled people. Which I appreciate.
I like this so much that when they put up a preorder for physical cards, I immediately put my money down for a Wulven hero set. And that's another thing - you can actually have heroes in this which aren't just boring human mages or whatnot. They have a huge variety of hero characters - even werewolves!
And that's about it.
