I have a section in my steam library called "podcast games" specifically for this purpose. Currently playing Kopanito Soccer while listening to the podcast. I usually switch between Trackmania and Geometry Wars otherwise.

Pinball FX 2 (Zen Pinball) has put out some of it's best tables this year, IMO. Fallout, Doom and the FOX lineup are all fun.

Oh man, a Doom table sounds awesome, it's unfortunate that you need to buy the whole pack for it instead of just one table.

We usually end up giving our gifts on New Year. Besides the kids, they get treated twice =)

Nevertheless, I ordered this bad boy for myself.

I'll use it to play some DJ Hero on my ps2. I'm also interested in using unusual control methods for games so this thing is right up my alley. It has a slider and a jog wheel which saves me from being those things seperately.

Kopanito All-Stars Soccer An arcade soccer game with powerups. It's quite good and pretty cheap on the steam sale right now =)

Princess Remedy In A Heap of Trouble Looks like an Atari/Amiga/C64 game. Has simple but fun gameplay with you fixing people's problems by fighting their inner demons. There's also a free version available!

The Metronomicon and Before The Echo. Both are DDR/RPG hybrids. Gave me an excuse to pull out my usb drumpad and bust out some moves! =) Not enough games like this! Before The Echo ends with developers providing a laid back commentary track over the end credits and a heartfelt welcome to all their Kickstarter backers. That game got heart, check it out!

Gunhouse on Android. Made by Brandon Sheffield, came out this year. I mainly know him from a harsh interview he did with one of the Rage developers a couple of years ago.

Goliath Yay for mechs!

Brigador Yay for mechs!

Neon Chrome It's a good twinstick shooter but I remember the later levels being really fricking hard.

DarkMaus Dark Souls with mice.

Duskers Explore abandoned space stations with your drones. Typical Austin Walker game.

I really liked taking pictures of stuff. There were some monsters that you could only see from certain locations or were off from the main path.

The pig dude and the main character were pretty cool.

I didn't like the racing. I think the last part of the game dragged on a bit too much but it was ok.

Ah, I didn't know the demo was updated. Apparently your progress is saved for the final product which is neat. The game is also coming out on october 7th!

I quite liked the initial demo when I played it. At the very least I could say it was interesting. The only other game I played from that studio was Flower, Sun, and the Rain which definitely was interesting and weird. I also keep forgetting they also made Sine Mora was seems like such a normal game in comparison with the rest of their stuff.

Looking forward to it!

I'll atleast be trying the demo after seeing all the Twin Peaks comparisons here. The graphics style initially turned me off from it.

I would never vape in a place where I'm not allowed to smoke. It's more about not being a dick than anything public health related.

I personally wouldn't buy anything external for my laptop. I also would always prefer pc games over anything else. There's so much good (free) stuff out there on top of frequent heavy sales and all around cheap games.

If I were to start over from scratch and I was on a tight budget, I'd get a 500 dollar laptop with an i3/i5 processor and the best integrated graphics card I could find (Intel HD 4600 or 5500). It's a heavy investment up front but I use it daily so it would be worth it for me. It will never run modern-ish 3D games great but it will run them. To give you a ballpark, it would run Skyrim and Dishonored at a decent framerate at the lowest settings. 2D games and older 3d games would be fine. It's still somewhat mindboggling to me how good integrated graphics cards have become. I remember buying Doom 3 and having to cycle through multiple pc's every couple of years with (bad) dedicated graphics cards before I could even run the damn thing.

What keeps me back from getting modern handhelds, especially the nintendo ones is that the games for it are still pretty expensive, especially compared to pc games. If you're getting a vita, remember that the memory card for it is very expensive. I do have an original PSP that I use as an emulation machine and for homebrew software. There's a kickass homebrew version of Tetris available for it and I still mainly use it for that.

All of them are PSX for me since I grew up with it. Fear Effect, like mentioned before. I bet the graphics style still holds up.

Tai Fu, Wrath of the Tiger. You're a tiger that learns kungfu and you need to beat a bunch of masters to learn their techniques. What a great game!

Einhander Really good 3D shmup with cool weapon system. Pretty hard though!

Not sure if really obscure but Fighting Force was pretty good.

I thought the PSX versions of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and 4 were pretty interesting (bad). They ran on the THPS2 engine and had new mechanics added to them that were never really meant to run on it. It's a world of difference with the PS2 versions (which were great).
