Finishing off Unchartered 2 (not a bad game imo) and hopefully I will buy either Batman Arkham City, Deus Ex or Skyrim in the next week or two.

I heard that Deus Ex was really good.

What's your take on it? What are you/were you playing?

skyrim. It's just huge. You can play 200 hrs & still not see everything. You could also play it though so many times & go diff routes.

Look on ign.com at the video reviews:)

I'm playing Skyrim & battlefield

Skyrim shall both delight & frustrate you. Some funny bugs in the game & some you can use to your advantage.

Good workout above. I have Indian food last night so glad its a rest weekend. HA

Nice, yeah, I agree there!

Isn't Indian food awesome by the way?

I have still yet to find a place that does a vegan Vindaloo (as that was my favourite flavoured curry when I was an omnivore). Every single Indian joint has only served meat vindaloo's.
