Just kinda curious what everyone is doing with their spare time.

For me right now:

1) Heroes of Newerth (trying out the new rift wars mode)
2) D&D (Doom and Destiny) - Old school JRPG that is hilarious and quite enjoyable
3) Magic the Gathering - Not really a video game, but a game none-the-less

It's really good, a ton of new stuff. That it was free is also a huge bonus, the amount of content could have easily been billed as an expansion we would have to pay for but the dev is legit and did an awesome thing. He's working on Terraria 2 as well so it's a pretty solid "franchise"

Warframe, Windwaker HD, Pokemon Y. Trying to cut down on multi-tasking in games - one or two at a time (online games like Warframe don't count).

When the PS4 comes... inFAMOUS.

unless there's something absurdly wrong w/ a game I'd say most games are worth playing @ least once.

Thanks for the link Detri.

Off-topic: I sometimes find myself enjoying Polygon's article layouts (and use of the newest, cutting-edge web design technologies) more than the article itself.

I played it - story is pretty good. Only play it if you've played AA & AC before it. Otherwise I agree with what allustypie said

@realm - yeah lol, I love Polygon. Can't read Kotaku anymore (unless it's Kotaku Australia, which isn't bad) due to the hideous layout of Gawker.

Polygon is the only remaining decent vg journalism. Game Informer totally went to shit in the past couple of years, and none of those e-rags like Kotaku or Destructoid have ever been worth a damn.

I'd argue there isn't any good vg journalism, but if you think polygon is okay, then I won't argue much.

The only videogame journalism you need is my fist


Currently playing the new Professor Layton game on 3DS (Layton and the Azran Legacy).

Just finished Pokemon X i.e. defeated elite 4 & caught legendaries, cant really be bothered with the rest of the aftergame.

Also recently got a Wii U (which is great btw, everyone should get one) and after finishing Wind Waker am checking out the backlog of other Wii titles -- just bought Twilight Princess (never played).

Love the Wii U, catching up on some titles I didn't catch on the Wii (Xenoblade, Last Story, etc). ZombiU wasn't bad either. And my god Windwaker is gorgeous.

The time it takes for me to poop increased drastically since the Wii U entered my life.

I poop for 5 minutes and just never leave the toilet.

I like that you had to clarify your poop timing so that we don't mistakenly think the Wii U gave you constipation.

But ya, that console was/is ridiculously under-marketed. Being able to play any game away from the TV is legit revolutionary. The controller itself is amazing and even browsing online with it is ridiculously good experience compared to any other device out there.
I have a thing against using phones/handhelds in the toilet tho, dat E. coli.

Yeah the lineup looks insanely good, I bought it mainly for the Wii backwards compatibility (having never owned one) and thought anything that came out would be a plus, but they are doing a seriously great job

Buy Xenoblade, Last Story, Pandora's Tower while you can get them for under $70 lol :) Though being in Australia that's par for the course for you guys, I guess. What region is your Wii U?

polygon isn't amazing, but its online approach and general aesthetics make it heads and shoulders above the rest of gaming 'journalism'

Back to FFXIV for the upcoming 2.1 patch. Replaying Ocarina of Time on 3DS in the meantime, while I wait for ALBW to arrive here (shipments have been slow since the typhoon and I don't want the digital version - I have every Zelda game - even BS Zelda [repro] - in physical format).

It's pretty good right now, they released an optimization patch about a month ago that fixed alot of frame rate and client-stable issues. Combat feels fine, each weapon has it's pro's and con's, and you pay for the weapons with cash or grind it up over time with certificates to gain those weapons. Just the teamwork that exists in the game and the fact that no other game out there can have 200+ players in a battle has me hooked.
