The Last Wish

I thought it was about time to read Andrzej Sapkowski's Witcher books, and bought all the short story collections and novels at once.

However, once GOG gets their client out -- which will hopefully include screenshot and played time features -- there is no question which distributor I will always prefer.

Doom 3

I got pretty far on my first attempt to beat Doom 3. Maybe even 75% through. That leaves a good many hours left, though, as according to Steam it took me 13 hours to complete the game on this try. Which I think is too much with such monotonous gameplay. F.E.A.R. had the same problem.

Dead Space 3

For the third installment in the Dead Space series, Visceral decided to shake things up a bit. Various changes here and there, but the biggest new thing is the co-op. Because that is what people wanted into their previously single-player horror game series, I guess. To play with someone else and make the experience not spooky at all...
