Borderlands is a lot of fun. I lost a lot of sleep over it from not wanting to stop.

The new Spider-Man game has 3 worlds so far. The main Marvel universe, the Marvel 2099 universe and the Marvel Noir universe set in the 1930's. One world left to be announced. While it could be the Marvel Zombie universe I think that is unlikely based on the storyline. I'm guessing and hoping it's the Marvel 1602 universe.

Dan Slott if I recall wrote the storyline for the game and he's a member here and maybe if we are lucky he'll give us a hint as to which world is left to be announced.

I'd like to get Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions for the Wii (only system I have right now).

Reading about all the older systems everyone's kept has got me nostalgic for my old Saturn. I had the game called Dragon Force for it. It was fairly simple Fantasy-based Strategy game. Man I played the heck out of it. It's pretty rare these days, and goes for a lot on EBay but I'd love to check it out again.

I'm hoping the fourth dimension in Shattered Dimensions will be the Japanese live action TV show - they already have one non-Peter Parker Spider-Man announced, Stan Lee loves the show and Marvel recently posted all of it for viewing on their website. But as long as it's not something like Marvel Zombies or Reign, I'll get the game anyway.

Also looking forward to Transformers: War for Cybertron, though technically the version I'll get is called Cybertron Adventures, since Activision renamed the Wii version for no real reason - Nintendo has no problem with "war" in a game's title and the DS versions (one for Autobots, one for Decepticons) keep the original title.

At home I am still moving through Fallout 3. I had to restart this past winter as I took too much time off to finish my master's. When I am done with that, I will finally go to Oblivion.  I have like 120 hours in and still haven't started the actual game. I think I will just dive into the quest since I won't start over on that one. I haven't played in over a year.

Finally, for some free time, friends have got me into MW2 and there is always Rockband.

My boys have me jumping in on Lego Batman with them.  And we are eagerly awaiting Lego Harry Potter.

I'm an avid sim racer, so I finally joined iRacing last fall (around October).  I've gone through a couple of hardware upgrades on my PC to get things running well with iRacing, and I'm now enjoying the heck out of that.

Aside from time spent on the PC doing iRacing, I occasionally fire up the Wii for some Mario Kart with the girls.  We recently got Wii Fit Plus but I haven't tried it out (kind of lost interest in the original Wii Fit).

I am currently playing...
Borderlands...which is awesome!

Bioshock...really nice horror title

Little Big Planet  with my daughter...we've finished the main game long ago, but she likes to create levels and we explore the online community level as well.

Fallout 3---so immersive.

Redemption is a lot of fun. The game sets you up as a goodie, so not quite the level of carnage we see in the GTA games. You get rewarded for doing the right thing and there appears to be no advantage to being bad (unless you wear the bandana).

Would be very interesting to see a sequel or spin-off where you play an outlaw, as there's a fair number of classic Western scenarios that aren't featured very heavily here.

I just played through Half Life 2 again over the past few days.  As a game developer myself, I have to say it is one of the best crafted games ever.  There is so much love and attention to game play and detail ... it is really amazing.

I didn't even finish Mass Effect 2, and after playing Half Life afterwards, Mass Effect doesn't even come close to the same game play level.

Anyone playing Fallout 3 should really like Half Life as well.

With the exception of the blu-ray functionality, my PS3 has been
collecting some dust lately. I've been loving Steam on the Mac, which
lets me download and play my games on my laptop AND desktop.
Working through Half-Life 2: Episode One, which I never finished, and
playing some Team Fortress 2 as well. Very odd--and totally
wonderful-- to be playing these on this platform.

Also playing some highly addictive games on the iPad: SpaceStation
Frontier, Plants vs. Zombies and a fun little platformer called DizzyPad
HD.

I just broke down and bought Red Dead Redemption(360). I have no regrets, it's a great game.

I have to admit I am looking forward to the Nintendo 3DS already.

As far as console gaming goes it is a certainty that Metroid: Other M will be the next game I play.
