Probably splitting time between Rainbow Moon on PS3 and Book of Unwritten Tales on PC.  Both excellent games that are likely under the radar of most gamers.

And working my way through season 3 of Breaking Bad on Netflix.

something from the new steam backlog, or the old one? 

probably Alan Wake and maybe start Krater. 

I should go back into dragon's dogma and max payne 3 though.

I will be playing poker with the Stangises and friends tomorrow, then prepping for my flight back to the baking metropolis of Dallas on Sunday.

Gratch, if you reach the end of Season 4 and realize you'll have to wait another year to see what happens next, you won't be able to face yourself in the mirror.  This will partially be because I'll have quietly replaced your favorite beverage with carbolic acid, but frustration and impatience will play a role as well.

You've only missed three episodes.  Pull up your TV provider's search function, look for these episode titles, and make a note to watch them in order:

- Live Free or Die
- Madrigal
- Hazard Pay
- Fifty-One (the new episode airing this Sunday)

Well, I know what one of those is at least.  I may also play some MechWarrior Online and may fire up Skyrim to get a taste of Dawnguard.  Or maybe not.

Blacklight Retribution and Path of Exile are the others.

for me, I'm not sure how much game time I'll have this weekend but I'll be taking part in the free to play celebration for Secret World at the very least.

Sadly, I have great difficulty playing more than one game at a time, unless they are hugely different and not on the same system... I confuse so easily, lol.  When I finish each day on the mmo Forsaken World, which I'll be playing all weekend, I may hit up an iPad app with a hidden object game, Scrabble, or Free Cell.  Otherwise, yeah, it will be Forsaken World - and my current addiction state means that will be the majority of "whenever I'm awake!"

Some things never change, lol.

Time to look into Steam for some PC gaming. Even without a top tier laptop, there should be plenty of last-gen games that will be playable.

BF3 360
Too Human - still playing this even though I figured I would have quit by now. It's grown on me like a rash I guess. Still has lots of flaws but I've been experimenting with the different classes and it's been interesting with a good melee character. The ranged Commando was easier to play if kinda boring.
??? - not sure what I should start next.

What about Star Ocean: The Last Hope?  It won't be worth significantly more if you leave it sealed, and you might discover you really like it! smile

Got to the 6 hour mark in Book of Unwritten Tales, then hit a game-breaking bug.  Apparently the only way to get around it is to e-mail the developers your save game file, they do some sort of magic and e-mail it back, then you can proceed.  I've sent the save file off to them...we'll see if I get anything back.  Shame, as it had been a fantastic game up until that point.  frown

Put about an hour into Rage and ended up completely bored.  It's Fallout 3 or Borderlands without even a hint of the personality and charm that made those games good.  Spent about 90 minutes with Transformers:  War for Cybertron and came away fairly unimpressed as well.  I probably need to dig out my gamepad and try it that way, as keyboard/mouse controls felt horribly clunky.  Gave The Dark Mod (Thief mod for Doom 3) another shot.  After fiddling with things for an hour to get it working, I found out that it doesn't recognize the scroll wheel on my mouse for some reason, which makes it damn near impossible to play.  Tried remapping to the keyboard, but it just didn't really work.

All in all, it was a shitty gaming weekend.   finger

I'll probably chip away at Resonance of Fate some. Maybe play a little Dark Souls.

Nope, not really.  I did touch MWO for a couple quick nothings, but most of my time was spent in MineZ and some random games on my Nexus 7.

and i played none of these.  I made the mistake of loading D3 and lost several hours yesterday.  I also played a bit of an android game called Dangerous, which is like a single player version of Eve online and other random games on the Asus.
