Started playing Saints Row: The Third, so its been amazing

Fallout: New Vegas

#3 Posted by Poki3 (556 posts) -

Re-S Ranked Bastion, Beat Puzzle Agent 2 and had a 6 win streak in League of Legends, so pretty good :P

Renegade Ops

#4 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13807 posts) -

Have not played much right now.  
New Vegas! 

#5 Posted by Grimmy616 (435 posts) -

The year began the way the last one ended: Playing The Old Republic. Can't believe how much I'm enjoying the game. Even with the constant comparisons with WoW I still like it (disliked WoW never got into it)

The Oddbox. :-)

#6 Posted by BraveToaster (12636 posts) -

It's good so far. I just started my research paper for Biology and I've been playing Bastion and Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.

The Humble Indie Bundle #4

#7 Posted by nintendoeats (6138 posts) -

It's OK. I'm very busy, but I have had time to finish the MK story mode. That was awesome.

I would like Thief.

#8 Posted by Video_Game_King (36566 posts) -

2012's pretty cool, I guess. It would be better with Thief, though. Maybe. I don't know, as I've never played the game.

#9 Edited by ArbitraryWater (12718 posts) -

@Video_Game_King: I can confirm that Thief is pretty awesome, as far as traditional stealth games that came out in 1998 go. The one that's on steam isn't the best in the series, but it's still perfectly alright despite having an entirely unnecessary hub world in-between missions.

2012 is going alright. I guess. Classes start tomorrow...

Two worlds II would be good.

#10 Posted by Pie (7217 posts) -

Dead Space 2 sounds pretty sweet. 2012s been something

#11 Posted by Moncole (666 posts) -

I started playing playing the DLC of Orcs Must Die.

Bastion please :)

#12 Posted by BeachThunder (13141 posts) -

ok so far. Winning Fallout NV would make it a lot better though :P

#13 Posted by iBePeRFeCT (397 posts) -

Not bad thus far, but classes are about to start back so it's going to go downhill rather fast I expect.

I would like Fallout: New Vegas

#14 Posted by RTSlord (1227 posts) -

its going alright, bastion por favor

#15 Posted by Kanden (140 posts) -

This year is going pretty good so far, I'd like The Oddbox please.

#16 Posted by Vegetable_Side_Dish (1751 posts) -

As stressful as last year, but I'll stumble through it. 
Two Worlds II please. 

#17 Posted by FateOfNever (1863 posts) -

Let's go with.. Humble Indie Bundle #4.

As for my year so far? Eh, ok. Three days in and I've barely done anything. Just got back from a trip to visit my friends for new year's eve. And then some cleaning, getting my lost Amazon gift card taken care of, watching some videos, catching up on the game of the year bombcast, trying to work out some, nothing special.

#18 Posted by DarthOrange (4097 posts) -

The year has been great so far, but then again I don't start school until next week. Bastion would be great if I am still eligible. (can past winners win again?)

#19 Posted by CrimsonNoir (412 posts) -

Really digging that pixel art, good job!

#20 Posted by JCTango (1485 posts) -

2012 so far isn't anything special either way. My city actually started the year off with a few murders though :(.

Dead Space 2 please :D.

#21 Posted by nywt (455 posts) -

It's been great. I've been spending all of my time at the World Junior Hockey Championships.

Renegade Ops please.

#22 Edited by DoctorSage (184 posts) -

I'm escaping the winter in (relatively) warm Florida and planning to work through my backlog. So it's been great, honestly.

Half-Life 2 would be good.

#23 Posted by thehaven22 (13 posts) -

2012 so far is pretty normal.

Bastion would be cool

#24 Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff (5710 posts) -

One hour left!

#25 Posted by Pazy (2682 posts) -

2012 is uneventful, Id like to play Dead Space 2 please.

#26 Posted by DeF (5216 posts) -

2012 so far? well there's a storm raging outside which knocked over our pretty tall fence so ... not so super awesome?

fittingly post apocalyptic would be winning Fallout New Vegas! :)

#27 Posted by DjCmeP (1224 posts) -

It's been alright. Nothing to complain about...yet.

Dino D-Day would be nice, thanks.

#28 Posted by TehFlan (1954 posts) -

It's going pretty good. Been playing Mass Effect. 
I'd like Bastion, please.

#29 Posted by GetEveryone (4531 posts) -

I've worked both Monday and Tuesday, which puts me in a very select group of people with shit jobs, and I've also watched the first six Harry Potter films.


Renegade Ops, please :)

#30 Posted by Sessh (1496 posts) -

While the new year's was just freakin' terrible, I at least had fun S-Ranking Bastion since.

Well, Fall Out: New Vegas would be great.

#31 Posted by Ghostiet (5587 posts) -

It's been alright.

The Humble Indie Bundle #4.

#32 Posted by Winternet (8238 posts) -

The Oddbox.

#37 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2037 posts) -

2012 so far is alright. Already catching up on games (namely Deus Ex right now), and getting near a full PC upgrade for a modern rig for the first time in about 6 years.

Two Worlds 2, please.

#38 Posted by iShayman (99 posts) -

2012 has been pretty cool so far. I've been replaying Bioshock.

Gish, please.
