It's not mindblowing gameplay but I enjoyed upgrading my weapons, the commentator and of course the art direction

Nothing in my library/wishlist to play really. Been jamming Legend of Grimrock all morning, never really played an OG dungeon crawler like that, so it was pretty interesting. Making me keener for Starcrawler and Darkest Dungeon which I both kickstartered a while back.
Also got around to playing Sang-Froid, kinda cool, but a bit frustrating at times.

Warframe got boring for me. Tried both PS4 and PC versions, only got so far and gave up.
War Thunder online beta (PS4) is fun to play. I love shooting planes out of the sky.
FIFA14 Online is where the action is though. I have never raged more in my life.

They just released an update adding a mission system to Planetside to give people more direction, but a lot of it is still in development.
Seems like it would be a really fun game as a group/clan, or if you got really invested in it, but hard to get drawn in as a new solo player. Good way to get into it is just play medic and join a squad, follow them around providing heals/rez to learn the areas/strategies

Finished Guacamelee, got ridiculously sucked into Starseed Pilgrim after almost uninstalling it a few times, and playing a friends copy of Risk of Rain via Steam Sharing. Good stuff.

Oh yeah I started a new game of Rogue Legacy, and it's WAY better now. I was kind of grinding it but didn't realize enemies scaled with your level, meaning starting over with some skills is a huge advantage. Might actually finish it now...

Yeah, well.. the components would have cost about 1650 separately, I didn't mind paying an extra $60 for premium build quality and tidy as fvkkk cabling.

I have nothing to play and I'm bored shitless. So to tide me over until Dark Souls 2 I go to give the original another jam.
Then I log on to steam and GFWL and it says that my gold membership has expired (I didn't even know that was a thing for PC games) and so I can't play online.
This is why double-DRM is complete bullshit and people pirate games that use GFWL/Uplay. :/

Spelunky HD on PC. This game is deliciously difficult. Kinda like Rogue Legacy but less forgiving with checkpoints and game progress.

unEpic. Kinda rogue-like-like (Eg dungeons of dredmore), pisstake humour but decent gameplay and pretty good.

InFamous: Second Son - Awesome graphics/physics, pretty repetitive side missions and no cover mechanic which sucks. Really cool free DLC missions that update each week with more to uncover, ties into a very clever ARG as well.

This kind of roguelike (eg Spelunky FTL or Binding of Isaac) + podcasts or audio books, will kill a day fuuuuuucking good

I've been trying to get work done/ not game, but XCOM is on a friends library tempting me... such a good game.

Audiosurf 2 is on sale until the end of the week. Haven't tried it yet, but looks about as buzzy as expected!
