    I've got Hotline Miami on my wishlist for steam, looks like a good smash TV sort of game to me and quite fancy giving it a whirl myself.

    I finished Dishonored and felt it was very overhyped and far too short offering very little for little gameplay. Only took 7ish hours to do and that includes cut scenes and side missions which is not worth the 30 quid I paid for it. Luckily I have sold it on ebay now for 28 quid but I'm still waiting for monies!

    Played very briefly of Hell Yeah but moved on to Double Dragon Neon which is a bit of a guilty pleasure. I'm on the last level for it now and I'm struggling to finish it lol, really good fun though but can see most people hating it.

    I find myself completely in agreement with Martin over the "sweet spot" of racing games, and also that they don't really need to be updated annually, or in some cases at all! In particular, the games that try a realism-based approach can last ages. I could quite happily have stuck with Forza 2, and haven't bothered with 3 or 4. Horizon looks nice, but it looks like Most Wanted is going to be THE game to own this year.

    I'm still primarily playing Borderlands 2, which is just such a perfectly put-together package. It does tend to flood you with Badasses at times, which can be quite annoying when you are just trying to get somewhere, but even when that happens you forgive it.

    That is mainly it, apart from a crapload of demos and the "free" stuff on PSN Plus. I couldn't get into Double Dragon Neon, but I genuinely giggled at Hell Yeah, and the list of stuff I now have from the service but haven't yet gotten round to is getting terrifying. I also picked up Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars on 3DS for £4 from ASDA. £4! Not buying it would have been criminal. So far the game informs me I am 2% completed, but even if it stays like that and I never play it again, I definitely got my moneys worth. (I will play more, it is my new "Play a mission before going to sleep" thing.)

    I've watched people play a lot of Halo, does that count?!

    Played quite a bit of Borderlands 2 and XCOM too, both simply amazotastic. Looking forward to getting in to some FM13 as well, played a little of the beta and once again it's looking like a brilliant timesink.

      Yeah from the last time I posted on here to this post, I did ODST with Martin, Neon and Ian.

      Very rusty on my Halo but the other three were good Smile was quite surprised how easy it was on heroic, still a rubbish game mind.

      Been trying to enjoy Deus Ex:HR. I can spend hours on it with out noticing but I'm finding hard to jump back in every time, finding hard to really fall in love with it. I have no idea why as it is a good game and should tick all my boxes but I am struggling.

      Thanks to rbevanx sending me a 48hr XL code I was able to do some co-op on Borderlands. Killed Knoxx but still got a lot to do after that with the side quests.

        Have you got to Barret yet on Deus Ex: HR?

        After him I promise it gets much better fella, the first 20ish percent of the game is terrible and the bosses are annoying. But mind you the controls could have been done much better, but all round it has some charm and is worth finishing.
