I started playing Homefront the other day.  It appears to be a set in the Red Dawn universe.  You play as the resistance.  It's not a bad shooter, and I've been quite enjoying it.  Ammo is scarce so you use whatever weapons you can take from the enemies cold dead hands.  It's pretty balls to the wall action and the acting is believable enough.  Fun stuff.  If you like FPS then this is for you.

Hearthstone on Mac and a backlog of playstation games.

I'm also trying to pickup a few old racing games like Total Immersion Racing and Distance.

Still plugging away at PST:EE and enjoying it very much. It is fun playing a Mage class for a change. Sure enough, they really do come into their own later in the game.

About 20 hours into ME: Andromeda. Despite all the hate, outrage, and death threats surrounding this one, really enjoying. Good palate cleanser after playing too many titles in a high fantasy setting.

Love ya', Geralt but...LASERS pew pew pew.

And speaking of CDPR and lasers--pls pls pls finish Cyberpunk 2077 before I die or my kids go to college and I'm bankrupted...whichever comes first. Thx.

Very excited to see what this game looks like...

I'm pretty addicted to Player Unknown's Battlegrounds at the moment. I'm awful at it too which makes it all the worse.

Also getting into a decent amount of CS:GO with friends. Here's a highlight if you'd like to see my unco clutch skills.

My attention span at the moment is atrocious. I'm studying Japanese so amongst trying to play through Quantum Break and the Witcher 3 Blood and Wine, i'm also trying to play through Shenmue 1 again, only this time the Japanese version... probably bitten off more than I can chew.

I played through Wolfenstien: The New Order recently and loved it. Highly recommended shooter if you don't have an AMD card (awful port, heres hoping the follow up is as polished as DOOM 4).

Also played through DOOM for before I upgraded graphics cards (had a AMD HD 6990) and couldn't put it down, even on low settings 720p!

Recently started up Broken Sword 2 on the iPad, as I really dig adventure games.

So far it is a tad less good than the first one, as the story feels a little bit less coherent. Still good though. Good humor, gorgeous animations, difficult riddles to solve..
My two complaints is that despite being the 'remastered edition', it still looks like a game from the 90's with you having to identify things in the background based on 4-10 pixels. At least they could have update the discussion icons from being 16x16 pixels to something even remotely modern.

I'm playing a bit of Armored Freedom after picking it up from the MGS for $3.99. You get what you pay for, but it's pretty fun, and nicely presented.

The gameplay is extremely simple (roll dice, move minis, use terrain to your advantage and deploy attack or defence cards in battle and the highest number wins - that's it), but it's entertaining enough for short spells.
You must gather your party before venturing forth.
