@Tom - PC! *Master Race, Master Race* and so on. Choose your own FoV
Bit of Radiant Defense on the phone thanks to a Neon recommendation ages back, touch of Big Sky Infinite thanks to PS+ and plenty of Need For Speed: Most Wanted on PS3 thanks to a special offer in Game, got it for £25. Love it, really good fun. Races are slick and exciting, just hooning around smashing into stuff is brilliant, top marks.

I've been downloading a lot of demo's this week in order to try to do a benchmark test for my PC. I'm mainly doing this because I was surprised to find out earlier this week that my PC can run the original Crysis and Bioshock(game that I thought were out of my hardware's league).
Other then that I've mainly been playing Trine. I want to get that done before I start trine 2 on Wii U. Having a great time playing it!

Mostly Far Cry 3 multiplayer for me. I've been gifting lots of speed boosts to everyone on my friends list (only one of whom actually plays the game) and am gradually getting to know the multiplayer maps. I'm also pleasingly efficient with an AK47.
I also caught the leaderboard bug bigtime when I discovered you can filter the leaderboards not just by Top and Friends, but also by City of Bristol so I can see how all the gamers - and there's a surprisingly large number of them playing Far Cry 3 - in my own region are doing, first time I've ever seen that done.
Also nabbed Torchlight II from Steam, which thankfully runs a lot faster and better than the Torchlight II demo. Includes 123 Achievements and it's a game that can last forever, just the way I like it. I now have a lot of games that can last forever and a serious problem trying to decide whether to concentrate on just one of them or be average at all of them.

Played a fair chunk of Assassin's Creed 3 Liberation and it was one of the most boring games I have played this year.
Got about half way with it and the game save become corrupted, there was no way I was gonna start again on that bore fest.
Did Medal of Honor 1 on PS3 and was alright but some parts of the game played up and I'm finishing off Dante's Inferno along with the DLC.
I also played a bit of WRC 3 and it's the best racer this year.

I just got myself a Wii U last night after an afternoon of hunting. The update didn't took long, but it seems I've been having some connection issues with the Miiverse, here's to hope it'll get fixed one of these days. All that jazz aside, I've been enjoying Nintendoland and New Super Mario Bros. U; both are a lot of good fun, with Nintendoland being a fantastic multiplayer option right now.
These last couple of days I also have been playing The Walking Dead (which now that I think about it, could do well on Wii U), and I must say is one of the most engrossing games I've ever played. I just completed episode 2, and with only the beginning of episode 3, I was blown away.

Playing a lot of AirMech on Steam, a sort of RTS MOBA mech simulator. Simple, intuitive and compelling.
Quite a bit more Guild Wars 2 which just goes from strength to strength. The Wintersday festivities are back from the original GW with Tixx the Toymaker and all sorts of other goings on. As expected ArenaNet's holiday events are still as top tier as they always have been.

Dipped back into Skyrim for a couple of hours but only really like to play it when I have a massive chunk of time to kill and that hasn't come around often this week.
The majority of my gaming has been spent on Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit which is entertaining at least. It has no storyline in the slightest though which I don't suppose you can expect from NFS but I think it would have just given me a little more reason to try and progress quickly if it had a sniff of a story involved. I've also got used to the fact that you don't have to actually be that good at realistic racing games to be good at this which is far from a realistic racing sim.
This may please the likes of my sister but it disappoints the shiz out of my boyfriend who won't stop saying how sh*te NFS is compared to GT5.

I finished off the story missions on Driver San Fran. Very good racer this one and as ridiculous an idea as the body shifting is, they managed to pull it off.
I've given Skyrim a 2nd chance to win me over and so far it is working. I'm getting swamped in quests though, everywhere I go a new quest is added. Certainly a lot to do in this one.
