Been playing Dead Synchonicity, which I've been enjoying. Something of a cross between Beneath a Steel Sky and I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream. Not perfect- some of the voice acting is pretty ordinary- but the atmosphere and setting are lovely. Not exactly the most original scenario you'll find in a game (post-apocalyptic wasteland!) but it's convincing enough. A good, proper adventure game, nice scope, clear goals, challenging puzzles;  far removed from the episodic-type adventures of recent times.

Good things to look forward to: April 28 for the second half of Broken Age. Hopefully more difficult and longer than part 1.

And May for the next episode of Life is Strange. And probably Borderlands.  Game of Thrones I could care less about; at least, the game, anyway.
