I've been playing Dirt 3 on Steam (since they removed Games for Windows Live) and it's great. It looks fantastic for a four year old game.

So, I'm excited, but I can wait for the full release. Not really interested in Early Access.

Man I sucked at the bosses. I summoned everything I could and still had trouble. Ornstein & Smough I summoned another player and the NPC and it still took me a couple of tries. Not only did I summon the witch for the butterfly and died several times, I died simultaneous to defeating him. I didn't even know that could happen.

Oddly, I beat the Capra Demon the first time. The only other bosses I got in one shot were Nito and Sif. Even Pinwheel got me a couple of times I think.

Euro Truck Simulator 2? I got a loan to buy a truck, then wrecked that truck and couldn't pay the repair bill, so I had to go back to working for the man. Seemed pretty realistic.

Seemed underwhelming. Honestly I sort of forget what's gone on from season to season so it will take me a couple shows to get back into it.

I was actually bummed to remember that Tywin Lannister had died. I thought he was a awesome bad guy.

No Arya or Bran Stark, two of the more interesting and sympathetic characters.

Hopefully Tyrion going to Danerys will make that whole side of the show interesting, because right now I really can't seem to care about those people at all.

When is winter supposed to be coming again?

Pool of Radiance is one of my all time favorite games. I can't tell you how profound an achievement it was to a young D&D nerd to see my favorite pastime so well replicated in digital form. However don't think that I can recommend it to a new player.

Maybe not worry about the D&D license, and go with Pillars of Eternity? I hear that's good.

They are all basically the same food and all terrible for you. So I'd just go with the one that has the highest total calories.

New emblems look dope!

I still check out most of the free Games with Gold on my 360. And I play stuff with my kids like Dungeon Defenders.

Hmm, I guess I haven't played any 2015 games yet. I played Horizon 2: Fast and Furious last night, does that count as new? Pokemon Shuffle?

As everyone has said, I play after they go to bed. I know some other folks who let their kids stay up late, and that's just insanity. Get them to bed by 8 and you have at least a few hours of gaming. (However that's why I don't watch a lot of tv. It's either watch a show/movie or game, rarely both.)

For you young parents I can say it's nice when they can start to play with you. My 5 and 8 year old boys and I make a great Awesomenauts team!

My wife has instituted a screen free Sunday policy at the house, which is just the worst. But we do get in a lot of board games that day.
