Re: What are you playing right now?
I know what you mean: I have been flailing about aimlessly for a couple of months now, nothing is grabbing me.
I got a couple of cheap, short games in the Steam Sale today - Little Inferno, Proteus and Starseed Pilgrim - just to tide me over. They're not really games as such, I suppose, but the first two are short enough that I will feel like I'm ticking along, I think.
Some good deals - To the Moon is cheap, X3: Terran Conflict is less than 3 euros! A massive game for nothing at all there.
Far Cry 2 and all DLC is 2.99. Incredible.
Edit: that sounds like a wacky game of Civ.
