I was playing Sims 3 recently; my Sim got married and had three sets of twins, all girls.

Been playing a lot of Alien Swarm and CSS lately though. I've beaten AS on Insane twice now, each time took ~5 hours. :ugh:

Well, over the weekend, I re-activated my EVE account, to console myself at my lack of Starcraft II part I.

*sigh*

EVE is awesome with my new Corp.

I've been replaying FFX, and I recently kicked Evrae's arse on my first try. It was very satisfying. :D

I'm currently playing through Splinter Cell: Conviction - I really enjoy it.
Also playing a running battle with a friend on Pro Evo. We're both spastics at it but it's enjoyable.

Well, I had trouble with him the very first time I played FFX, but it was probably because I was underleveled as not only was it my first Final Fantasy but my first JRPG, so I didn't appreciate the level of grinding you had to do.

FFX in particular as a lot of grinding especially if you want to beat the dark aeons

Oh lawds, the dark aeons. On my older save file I'm currently training for them (and Penance) and it's a chore just to get the clear spheres so I can max out my stats.

I didn't find the Dark Aeons too bothersome. Strategy guides from the internet are the way forward :P.
And my adaption of a Penance strategy made it impossible to die :D.
