I've been playing NBA2K12 on PS3 for about three months now, pretty much since the day I got it. (I am "allstarmatches" BTW.) I am completely addicted to myplayer mode.

Finished playing Mass Effect 3.

Of the two, I think I enjoyed playing Mass Effect 2 better.

Ultimately I think I liked ME1 best, but ME 2 is good. I'd give ME3 the least and not saying it wasn't fun to play but it certainly wasn't as satisfying a game experience like the other two overall.

So how is it? Can you play co-op offline via split screen? I ask because I'm playing 5 with a friend right now occasionally and we're having a blast. So I'd get this if we could. And it's, y'know, a good game.

Save your money and wait for RE6. No split screen and you AI partners are the dumbest things this side of a cereal box. If you want Co-op you have to head online. Not to mention the mechanics are awful. Playing online has it's moments but overall this game feels like a DLC not a $60 game.

Considering how good the trailer looked I had high hopes for Operation Raccoon City, but I've seen negative responses elsewhere. Somebody commented about it being like a subpar Call of Duty with zombies thrown in occasionally. Have no idea since I don't do CoD, but held off from buying. Burned before with slick cinematics that mislead. High hopes for RE6 & SH: Downpour though.

With the majority of Skyrim done, I switched to Dead Island, finally finishing the story on that. Then played the 'Grubbins On Ice' dlc for Costume Quest. Then finished out Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue. Made significant progress on Sideway New York. Finished FAERY: Legends of Avalon. Back to playing Borderlands because of the coming sequel. In particular the 'Claptrap's New Robot Revolution' dlc, though I do still have 'Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot' I haven't started at all.

That's the last 2 weeks of 'playing now'.

Okay, and you are allowed to snicker, but a friend hooked me onto the "evil" facebook game, Castleville - anyone one else hooked? ... or here looking for a neighbour? PM me if you are. And the rest of you keep your laughing to a dull roar ...

Spent a few days on Silent Hill Downpour. Can see what they meant in reviews I read. A few bursts of inspiration and brilliance, but seems like there should be more. Getting there isn't half the fun in this case. Did do better at trying to recapture what was special about the first couple than shattered memories, which I never finished & barely remember but for the repetetive chases.

Playing combat & predator challenges on Arkham City as all 4 characters(combat cleared for all now). Trying some campaigns too.

Bought Gotham City Impostors yesterday & played it a lot yesterday/today since they have 'community challenges' that are only available through tomorrow. It really is refreshingly unconventional in its approach to presentation what with the Bats being every bit as crazy as the Jokerz. The little 'office bat' character is entertaining all by himself in the animated tutorials complete with cheesy 50s music(this guy).

Also bought a "season pass" for The Walking Dead game, but have only played just past the events of the demo. High quality but still no idea how long the play time per episode will be. Hopefully each will be a couple hours at least.

I'm knee deep into Mass Effect 3 now. A couple nights ago I made a decision I deeply regret, but since I don't do reloads I'm not undoing it. Goes to show how emotional the writing for this series can be, I am carrying on.
I still really enjoy the multiplayer too, fun little 15-20 minute play sessions. If anyone wants a a partner for the PC my Origin tag is Centurion-David.

I also recently played the Diablo 3 beta and had a blast. I like the little tweaks they've made to the skill and combat systems although I can see not everyone will appreciate it. I'm not a big fan of too much micro managing so I liked it.

Star Trek Online. Free to play. It's actually pretty fun, different feel then SW: The Old Republic which is a good thing. Being able to bring your little party of officers and red shirts onto planets makes you feel very Captain-ish.

P.S. Thanks for the warning about Raccoon City, I'll wait for #6 instead.

Not playing much of anything at the moment. Going through and getting some dangling trophies in the Assassin's Creed games, and waiting with baited breath for Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition. Harley Quinn's Revenge!! FTW!!!

Don't have Arkham City at all? Were you expecting a GOTY edition & waiting for that instead? More patience than I've probably ever had....

I'm with Booyah, I also waited, but then I had a ton more distractions to keep me occupied so it was no biggie.

Oh no, no no no. I bought Arkham City the day it came out. I played it and beat it numerous times over three weeks, and then I traded it back towards Assassin's Creed Revelations.
I am buying the GotY because it comes with all of the DLC I didn't buy and the all new "Harley Quinn's Revenge" pack that just looks amazing.

I just picked up the GOTY Edition of Arkham City to play through the game and be able to use the 1970s Batman skin.

I was playing Skyrim as archer Oliver Queen and Fallout New Vegas as Dan Tanna.

Thinking about playing through Fallout 3 as Frank Castle.

Only thing I'm really playing day-to-day is Mass Effect 3 multi-player. Just can't stop, and with weekend challenges and rewards and all the free content it doesn't get boring for me. I love how some sessions can go incredibly smooth while in other groups by round 2 or 3 we're all dead. Ahh random co-op teams, gotta love 'em.

I'm still playing Dungeon Defenders a lot. I am trying to get my characters leveled up before the 4th DLC and patch to raise the difficulty come out.
