Fallout: New Vegas is indeed very good. It is a tad glitchy here and there, but nothing really to complain about. The combat is smoother and it's certainly more successful at the moral decision making than was started in Fallout 3.

So now that my girlfriend has a new computer, we can finally play the Orange Box. PM with your SteamID if you're still playing TF2 and I'll PM ours back.

Swapping between the two alot, but this week I've mostly been playing (deep breatth) World of Warcraft. Pressure from the nerds at work made me break down and try it.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

Well, it's better than my current title on here I guess.

This should be a video game. or a movie. or both.

Humble Indie Bundle is out. Very interesting package. You pay what you want (I know someone who paid about 6 cents, he plans to pay more later when he has money), and you get 5 free indie games, one of which being Braid, which is really good. I've played a bit of it already, and I get the basic mechanics, though like any puzzle game I'm quite stumped by a few challenges.

But hey, it's for charity. Woo!

I don't remember who posted it or where (it might have been someone here) but there's a similar "trailer" called Pokémon: Apokélypse: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDX1m0Y2Vkg

No "Red Dead Redemption" 'Zombie Overrun online.

Just finished 'Uncharted Two' which was excellent but too short.

Just started Assassin's Creed II.
