Played a tiny bit of Minecraft today, which I haven't done in a while.  I'm also waiting to download Mirror's Edge, which I'm super excite for.  It's on sale for $5 on Steam right now, if you're like me and haven't played it before.

Edit: Looks like I got lucky and caught the sale at the last minute, because it's back to full price now.

Okay so I just played Mirror's Edge for two hours and so far it is the greatest videogame I have ever played (granted, I haven't played many). My only complaint is that I think it gave me motion sickness and I had to stop. Never had a game do that to me before.

I liked the concept of Mirror's Edge, but I couldn't really get into it. It didn't help that the PC port of that game is terrible.

It is?  What did you find objectionable?  I wish there was some way to turn off head bobbing, if that would make me less motion-sick, but what else?

One of the biggest things is that all of the game prompts are auto-set to 360 controls, and the default controls are all set to really dumb keys for no reason, and since everything is labeled as 360 controls, it's a pain to get all the controls set up the way you need them to be.

Hmmm, that's not how it is for me. Maybe they updated it some point? Right now for me you got WASD to move, space to jump, shift to crouch/slide, Q to snap-turn 180 degrees, LMB to punch/kick, and RMB to disarm. It was all relatively intuitive (though it did take some getting used to) and I'm pretty sure it didn't prompt me to use any XBox controller buttons.

I played through Spec Ops: The Line today. The story was great. Gameplay, not so much.

I think I might. My nickname is BskAknrlsh, or something like that.

Started getting back into Insurgency again because they had an update with new maps and pistol/knife animations. Also several new awesome weapon replacement mods came out.

Also started playing Trouble In Terrorist Town with some friends. Also pretty fun.

I played the new Dragonball game, and its a looootttt of fun. The game mechanics are blatantly repetitive, but its just so addicting

Finally was able to get into a server with the InsurgenZ mod for Insurgency today. I'm not sure if many other zombie games actually require headshots to kill zombies, but it can be pretty frustrating. As long as you keep them away from you, you'll be fine though.

I was playing Arma 3 for a while the past few days. The game just never fails to leave me in awe, it improves so much over Arma 2 and still gives you the same enjoyment if not more because of the updated game engine that even refracts light in water properly.

I did a workshop mission with some friends and we all took screenshots as it was just such an amazing thing to be in. Here are the best ones from my perspective:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=420941316

Also of course playing a lot of Cities Skylines, the game is just what SimCity should have been. Not really much to say about that game because that pretty much sums it up. Though I do advise turning off the music as it's not that great, the SimCity OST was far better and adapted to the city but the game had a way bigger budget.

I really got into AdVenture Capitalist. And that's the only thing I will be playing for now, since my computer can handle it. Razz

Been playing Thomas Was Alone as I am trying to give some games in my library that I haven't played a chance. Why didn't I play this when I got it from a humble bundle? It's easily up there with my top 10 favourite games of recent times, if one game was needed to show video game is a form of art and entertainment this is it. A simple platformer with a lot of heart, amazing voice acting of Danny Wallace (who won a BAFTA for it) and an simply superb OST by David Housden.

OST adds so much to the game so I went in search of it:

Yeah, I made the mistake of trying to play it at native resolution (1366x768), which ended up in the game freeing up due to so much lag. I basically have to play it on the lowest possible settings, at the lowest possible resolution, in windowed mode for it to work. But it's so much fun, I don't mind.

I've also been playing a lot of GTAV, however unlike you having to run it on lowest settings, I've been able to run it ok at mostly maxed settings. The only exceptions are the advanced graphics because for some reason Rockstar made them terrible.

I've already played the game on PS3 so the story and stuff isn't really new to me but it feels better the second time because you know what you are doing so you can listen to little things more. The game has issues, I crash a good bit due to errors from the game and my brother can't play it well at all even though his specs are above the recommended.

But it's a good looking game and compared to the PS3 version it does feel like the definitive edition of the game.

Lately I picked up Star Wars Battlefront II and KOTOR II, as they were on sale. Battlefront 2 is kinda meh, but I'm really enjoying KOTOR II, and I hope I'll get some time to complete it (with the restored content mod, of course).

I just started playing Project Reality: BF2, as the most recent update no longer requires the user to own the base game. It's pretty good, though the graphics are rather dated. The one thing they have down is the feel/atmosphere of the game, and if you have a squad with a good leader and everyone's using comms, it can be really fun. Without a good squad, there's no sense of purpose.
