I dropped in on Diablo III, it's had loads of new stuff added since I was last there and I'm looking forward to the next update which adds even more. It amazes me the amount of support this game gets, on a console I'd have to shell out another £44.99 for an annual pass and probably a fiver each time they added a new skin.
I also took Assassin's Creed: Revelations for a whirl and instantly got sequelitis, i.e. it's just more Assassin's Creed and I'm a bit burned out on the franchise now, I might as well have booted up Assassin's Creed 2 or Brotherhood and played spot the difference.
Resident Evil 4 got a quick blast, I'm thinking anyone who describes it as 'brilliant' hasn't played it for a while, it hasn't aged gracefully imho.
Finally, as per usual, every waking second not playing the above was devoted to Life is Crime on Android. Been playing it solid for about 3 months now, still haven't paid a penny for the freemium side of things and am still managing to hold my own; there's a serious skew towards the 'biggest wallet wins' side of things in this game but the fact I can still have so much enjoyment means the balance is probably just about right so far.

Just polishing off Inazuma 11 2, (great game I recommend every check it out).
Looking forward to getting a bit of spare cash so I can buy tomb raider, after all, who doesn't like seeing rich girls get beaten up (I don't know if I do or not, but I'm sure I will after I've played tomb raider.)?

Wow @FM Diablo 3. I still haven't thrown away my disc for that yet so I might reinstall it one day, but atm dungeon-clicker-wise I still got Torchlight 2 to finish (lost about 10 hours or progress when my drive died, and Steam overrode my cloud save without telling me so I've stopped playing that for the time being), as well as Path of Exile.
My main game atm though is Final Fantasy XIV. Not sure if I'm just dense or what, but at 20 hours in I'm still not sure what the hell's going on. What is Eden? Cocoon? Fal'cie? Pulse? er- Granda or something? I can kinda guess at their meaning and I get the gist of it I think, but the game's doing a terrible job with it IMO. Having a mini-crush on Fang too atm, despite her having some weird Aussie-ish accent and being in dire need or a hairwash.
On the PC I've been playing Grotesque Tactics Evil Heroes. Buggy and annoying as hell. It's one of those turnbased tactics RPGs, and it has this weird mechanic where each of your chars have this obcession bar that powers up as you play. However unlike the powermove bars in other games this games moves are usually bad, and can (and will) hurt your own team. And considering your characters bars often moves up at the same time, it can often cause a major landslide where half your team kills itself in one move.
Oh and finally gotten round to playing FTL. It's neatos.

Its a cracking game Dave. Looking forward to future DLC and the next adventure.
I have been playing a lot of God of War over the past couple of days. Finished God of War HD on Thursday night and nearly there with God of War II. I'll be starting God of War III after that and then finally God of War Ascension. Gave the multiplayer a quick go, and I am impressed. Only went on the trials which you can do either on your own or with a partner. A lot of stuff to do if you prefer the single or co-operative route of play.

Ragnarok Odyssey on Vita, sort of Monster Hunter meets FF meets PSO. Not bad but lots of grinding for cards.
Skylanders Giants and Transformers Prime on Wii U, plus just starting Black Ops 2 on Wii U.
Lots on iOS and Android, too.

@Steve it looks awful as well, wasn't even gonna rent that one.
I did Dead Space 3: Awakening and it was total pants.
Like Severed re-used alot of locations from main game (about 90%) and wasnt scary as well as only being an hour long. Plot hole wise it was even worse than Dead Space 3.
Also did Ratchet and Clank: Q-Force, not good and far too short for a full retail game. Just as well I got it for ten quid and comes with a VITA version at least.
