That's what I thought too! I haven't played either. Excited by anything valve makes. L4d2 is a riot (and the first is still great too). I'm currently in a heated battle with my wallet over Portal 2.

I've been playing Borderlands on PC. Just beat the main campaign, and moving on to the DLC.
Just bought Costume quest on xbla. Hoping to get the wife to play that with me :)

edit: oh, and sooooo much minecraft. always minecraft.

I've heard about dota2. It's going to have to stand out somehow and be amazing for me to switch from league of legends. It's valve, so I know it's going to be good, but I'm also really fond of LoL.

It's like starcraft 2's situation. Sure it's shiny, new and polished. Still doesn't make me like it more than the original. It feels different. Sequels don't always capture the same feel. Sometimes newer isn't better.

I play Company of Hereos, by far my favorite modern game. I bought Starcraft 2 as a replacement, but CoH just kills it in terms of complexity and strategy. I still play Twisted Metal:Black for the PS2 as well. Great difficulty and excellent game design.

Its been a while since iread about it, but supposedly valves version will have all types of special coaching features, like people viewing while you play, and being able to talk and give suggestions, and great coaches get extra stuff in game, don't remember what, probably like decorative stuff like badges and costumes. So there's an incentive to teach nooobs, and not to be an ahole while doing it

It's not really like that in LoL. Once you rank high enough people are mostly good and the fights are pretty fair (good matchmaking). People often get mad at bad players because it ruins the match more than in other genres though. It's not worse than in other rts's however.

I've basically just been playing Sotis (storm of the imerpial sanctum, a dota game for SC2). Was playing Halo Reach, but the game is really badly designed in comparision to their previous games.

LoL, they add new stuff every 2 weeks which is great. free2play means devoted devs it seems.
diddy kong racing, just bought a used cartridge
other than that, haven't played much lately.
