Let's do some math:
Deus Ex: $15.99 36 hours 44/hr
Skyrim: $54.99 213 hours 26/hr
Portal2: $49.99 23 hours $2.17/hr

And you know what, Portal was worth every penny.

It was my favorite game of last year, over Skyrim, over Deus Ex, over... everything. Shoot, there should have been an option to leave your web-cam on during the entire game so that you can go back and just watch your own $#!? eating grin for hours on end.

There wasn't a part of that game that I didn't think was about perfect.

Possible my favorite part is this: you go through an entire game without hurting a fly (unless you count personality cores or turrets). No, I'm not a huge pacifist, and I... Read All

Some people actually created a Super Mario Brothers with portals game. Looks pretty awesome.

http://stabyourself.net/mari0

Can download it for Windows, Mac and Linux.

From the site:

"Two genre defining games from completely different eras: Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. and Valve's Portal. These two games managed to give Platformers and First-Person Puzzle Games a solid place in the video game world. But what if Nintendo teamed up with Valve and recreated the famous Mario game with Portal gun mechanics?"

Anyone here still playing this one? It has been a bit frantic since out went free, but I still pick it up from time to time, you know, looking for hats.

Ive been seeing reports that Valve may release a "Steam Box" to compete with Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft in the console market.

The picture above is from a patent application filed by Valve last year for a "game controller having user swappable control components."

"Apparently meetings were held during CES to demo a hand-built version of the device to potential partners. We're told that the basic specs of the Steam Box include a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GPU. The devices will be able to run any standard PC titles, and will also allow for rival gaming services (like EA's Origin) to be loaded up."

Some more interesting bits from The Verge:

Anyone else ever played this one? It is the must frustrating/exhilarating game I've played in a long time, and its turn based.

Basically, both teams tell their team what to do at the same time. Once you have it ironed out, the teams just go. Everything is broken down into 10s chunks, and you'll spend an hour coming up with the most perfect, intricate plan, and when some guy you didn't see pops his head through a window and takes out everyone you had pointing the other way, you'll curse and scream and toss your keyboard through the monitor.

If anyone has ever played the Vicksberg War Game, it reminds me of that, just not as lopsided.

This game scared the crap out of me the first time I played it. I liked it. Mixed success with Wine, almost need to have a windows partition around to play it.

This game's goal in life is to destroy the player. It's hard. The enemies are tough. Low level minions can still kill you with relative ease if you aren't careful, and the bosses can often kill in two hits or less. Did I mention the enemies level up when you die? It also auto-saves whenever you die or change gear or reach a certain point. Fun times. Fun times. While this game is tough, it's not impossible. It requires that you take things slow and think. You'll survive 9 times out of 10 if you don't get ahead of yourself. I love it for that. The other part of the game I enjoy is how everything is linked to souls. You get souls for killing enemies and they... Read All

Okay, I know this isn't Assassin's Creed, it's Assassin's Creed III.

When I first heard the concept of an Assassin in the revolutionary war I was skeptical, but these screens look fricken' awesom.

I don't think a person has to buy this title any longer. It's not for sale anywhere and available for free and legal download. In my opinion a fun game and funny.

Posted that ive been playing through Rage in my spare cycles. I have spent some time in game beefing up my Caprino. I slapped some rocket launchers to it, won a sick spiky spoiler on front, got some spiked blades and upgraded the engine. Its pretty fierce out in the wasteland and when I get into a fight with some bandits I turn on the shields and can blow them straight to The Underdome.

Here is what my ride looks like as I am driving it:

Oh and the pictures above are the actual in game shots of me driving and standing in front of my car.

One of my top picks this year, if not ever. My wife bought it for me for Christmas, and I was disappointed that I didn't get Skyward Sword . . . until I played.

I liked how the story kept revealing villain doublecrossings, and was very surprised in the end. It felt like non-stop action and then, all of a sudden I was done. Thankfully, I was able to continue with side stuff that I hadn't completed.

Flying was probably my favorite part. Do play if you're a fan.

Can't say I didn't have this idea a few times in the Skulltula house :)
