    Free game from Valve - highly recommended.
    Okay, I got the chance to play this game properly today and it is great fun.

    If you have a Windows computer I recommend you grab it whether or not your PC is actually any good or not - it's free and it'll run on pretty much anything.

    It's best if you have someone else to play it with rather than random people the matchmaker put you together with, though.

    I heard it was going to be short.....but special. I'll get it. It reminds me of Abes Oddyssey and the SNES game called Out of This World (took me a while to remember the name!). Trial and Error baby....Trial and Error!

    Grabbed the demo for Hydro Thunder a while ago, I think this could be the Mario Kart title the 360 has needed; very easy to pick up right away, lots of action and speed without feeling overwhelmed, etc. Will be a definite crowdpleaser multi-player party game..

    New Red Dead Redemption Add-On Pack available today; "Legends and Killers" features a broad array of new multiplayer characters and maps. No new single-player/plot line content, that will be in a later add-on.

    If it has a decent single-player, sure. Hopefully the demo isn't online-only..

    I haven't played anything much in recent days, since I stopped forking over for XBL, and I don't wanna spend a bunch of money building a gaming rig. That said, I love anything by valve. I'm buying portal 2 once it gets here.

    You don't have to pay for the XBox live service to get the demos/games. And L.A. Noire may be out before Portal 2..

    I know, but single player gets really boring after a while. Multiplayer FTW.

    XBL is what, $35 a year? I spend more on batteries! And XBL offers hours of entertainment and the chance to "hang out" with friends who are separated by long distances.

    Got the Monday Night Combat demo; definitely a LAN party game, it's almost like being in an old "action" board game, very simple elements and play in an anything-goes arena. Pretty impressive for a quick n' dirty multiplayer..

    Earlier in the summer I was playing Warhammer Dawn of War 2, Stalker: Call of Pripyat, Borderlands, and some Left 4 Dead.

    Recently I have been playing some old school games like Freedom Fighters/Max Payne (direct x 8.1 baby!) and Alien Swarm.

    Rockstar Games' slogan should be "For misogynists, by misogynists".

    Anyone seen the new trailer for Bioshock:Infinity? It looks really cool.

    It's pretty, but I can only get so excited about a title release that's ~2 years out. I never really got the whole fascination with covering games that are many months away, which is so popular now; those of us who were around when Duke Nukem Forever was announced (in 1997; it still hasn't been released) have taken a "believe it when I see it" stance..

    The next big release is next week's Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, that's a time scale I can better work with..

    And in the case of games like "Daikatana", we wish that we HADN'T seen it.

    Still, whether "Secret of Vulcan Fury" would have been a good game or not, I'd LOVE for that to actually come out.

    Like StarHalo, I'll believe it when I see it.

    WOW, I can see why some are saying the new Lara Croft title is the best one yet; they totally did away with the third-person-shooter format and changed it into an overhead-real-time-strategy game (it's so new that they don't call it Tomb Raider..) The game has a much stronger/denser puzzle element, with more combat, now arcade-style, with a slick aim-and-strafe two-stick interface. The free demo is highly recommended even if you don't like the Tomb Raider titles, since this is an entirely new game..

    StarHalo, I'm just buying ALL of the Summer of Arcade games... they are all awesome, even Castlevania which is balls-to-the-wall hard.

    I still haven't tried that one; sources say the game is really meant as six-player co-op, so the fewer players you have, especially just one, it gets a lot more difficult. I like the idea of making the whole game a big puzzle though..

    It's true that it's supremely difficult as one player. But I have a bunch of friends on XBL who need me to set a good example by buying it before they do. Even then, I enjoyed the demo enough that I'd play solo.

    All the reviewers who rated it poorly are just whiny babies. Castlevania is hardcore like old-school.

    Planning on picking up Portal 2 at a later date... a couple friends have been bugging me to do co-op but I have a lot on my plate right now.

    Right now working on Fallout: New Vegas and I'm about 40 hours in so far. Great game, but pretty much just like the previous (Fallout 3). Saints Row 2 is probably the next on my list and by then LA Noire should be out. I'm super excited for LA Noire!

    I still love playing TF2 and L4D2. They need to hurry up and port all of the L4D1 campaigns.
