It’s been such a great year for video games I could make a convincing year-end top-five list featuring only games I came nowhere near finishing. The games I did play in 2011 astounded. This year’s tops five are all worthy of being Game of the Year, but decorum [...]
I've been playing a heck of a lot of "Bastion," this week's Summer of Arcade release on Xbox 360. Sadly, it's still under embargo and I can't talk about it yet. Also earning heavy time in my consoles are "Infamous 2" and "Magic: The Gathering."
The year's half over, and "Bulletstorm" unexpectedly stands tall as my game of the half-year.
It's been a while since I've done one of these, but nonreview games I've managed to sneak in include "Outland" and "Dragon Quest IX." I've also been spending time with old favorites "Bulletstorm" and "Portal 2."

I've been playing a lot of "Brink" in the run-up to Tuesday's release. I also managed to sneak in some "Bulletstorm" and "Divinity II," among other things.
