Over the weekend I decided to try out some of the games on my steam library that I've not really played. Started playing Galactic Civilizations II and I'maddicted to it.
Really good game, I used to love Star Trek Birth of the Federation and it reminds me a lot of that. I think I will be spending quite a few hours this week playing it.

I've bought that twice! Retail and Steam but its somehow never got its hooks into me despite my love of TBS.
I loved last years Endless Space though. It's my most played Steam game - though I expect XCOM to soon surpass it.
Curiously my second most played Steam game is Plants vs Zombies. As good as that game is I can't believe I've played it that much and I suspect Steam went wrong somewhere!

I just read that EA are going to give everyone that bought SimCity a free game. Not sure what yet. But I'll laugh if it's SimCity IV.
The list includes the new out Dead Space 3 which costs what I paid for Simcity. Pretty much buy one get one free on EA games will do me! There's still time to take part as well, they extended it until 25th in case the addition of any of those games free tempt you to SimCity.
I highly recommend Mass Effect 3 to anyone that doesn't have it.
The free game seems to be available now in the UK if you update origin.

I've still not got Sim City yet and I don't know if it's worth it, heard very mixed reviews and also it's rather expensive.
Gamefly will sell you it for a more reasonable £23.99 if that helps: http://www.gamefly.co.uk/Download-SimCity/5005534/ using discount code: GFDAPR20UK

This could be interesting: Black Annex
Looks very like Syndicate. The proper one - not the shooter. Indie devs are being kind to us fans of the classics atm with Underrail updating Fallout, Xenonauts for XCOM and now a Syndicate remake!
This is made in QBasic of all things! That's the one that came free with DOS and included the awesome Gorillas (a tanks/artillery/worms type game) as a demo.

Fez hits the PC In a few days. Can't wait to see what all the fuss was about on the consoles. I like a puzzle platformer.

I heard about Fez through Indie Game the Movie and it looked pretty good. It's taken years and years to make!

What have we got on the way then?
Flashback ofc as discussed in another thread. This is probably what I'm most looking forward to right now!
Batman Arkham Origins - certain to be a great game but as I've yet to play the second one, it's not high on my wishlist. I loved the first game but the save wiping bug put me off the second and by the time they'd fixed it I'd moved on to other games. Must find the time to play Arkham City.
Assassin's Creed IV - I've only just actually got into this series of games. I never liked 2 and whilst I like 3 it runs appallingly on my PC (and many other peoples according to Ubi's forum). I picked up an inbetween one - Brotherhood from the Steam sale and like it. It also taught me why I could never get into 2. 2 has no keyboard prompts! I don't do game controllers and Brotherhood and 3 actually kindly tell you what keys to press unlike 2.
Splinter Cell: Black List - I don't actually know much about this but you can't go far wrong with Spliter Cell. The last one was Arkham Asylum with guns!
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. When this was an FPS (I hate FPS) and the only XCOM game announced this was my most hated upcoming game! Now we've had a proper XCOM with EU and this game has switched to third person I'm quite looking forward to it. A reviewer who has played it has told me its not as tactical as the videos make it look unfortunately but it should still at least be Mass Effect in the XCOM universe. And you can't go wrong with Mass Effect either!
Space Hulk was just added to Steams upcoming games list - and has shot up high on my wish list!

I've gone pre-order crazy using my trading card steam credit and have Rayman Legends, Worms Clan Wars and Space Hulk pre-ordered!
