Recently I came upon Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The original Deus Ex was awesome, and DX2 was total crap, so I decided to give this installment a shot.

The result? Well, let's put it this way - it's been years since a game hooked so much that I played it the whole night, almost 14 hours straight. That good and that immersive game it is.

If you like some FPS/stealth play combined with a intriguing story, then give it a shot.

That prelude though... ugh.  I hated it.

But once you died and ah got augmented, it gets fun again.  =D

Edit: As a side note. thelaptop, I saw your rig info in another thread and... 32 gigs of ram? The hell, what are you doing with that computer man? My new laptop has eight and two of those spend most of their time twiddling their thumbs. Can't imagine what would need 32 Gb of RAM O_O

Virtual machines, file system buffers, RAM to pre-load databases for calculations, space for large inference networks... so yeah.  Lots of RAM needed.  My rig, when not set up for playing games, is acting as my private compute server using Linux.

Yup.
Computer Scientists could probably use up a TB worth of RAM in a home workstation. When that fails, time to move to the cluster!

...and we're off topic! sorry!

Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis IV. I'm stuck with these two for two months now and still want more. The export between CKII an EUIV is great way to enhance the gameplay :)

I just finished Legend of Grimrock
Brilliant game, really fun throwback to watching my brother play eye of the beholder on his Amiga! I'd wholeheartedly recommend it!

It's a bit uncanny that you say this, because my older brother has always been into D&D video games and I also have lots of fond memories of watching him play.  Also, I just Googled Eye of the Beholder and was treated to nostalgic remembrance; I wouldn't have remembered the name of the game, but it looks so familiar!  :)  (Grimrock looks cool too)

Wow, looks nice and feels Dungeon-Master-ish. Guess I have to play DM again, and give LoG a shot :).
