I think I tend to slow down on my play time at the end of expansions, though it isn't usually until beta is available. I have still been logging on for raids, that won't stop anytime soon! I miss hanging out with my WoW friends as much as I used to though, some of them need to try out some other games with me!
So, what have I been playing?
Trouble in Terrorist Town
TTT is a game mode created for Garry's Mod (a sandbox physics game using a modified Source engine). You play as a group of terrorists with one or more traitors in the midst. The group has to work out who the traitor is, while the traitor is trying to take out the other terrorists. The innocent 'terrorists' are expected to have evidence before shooting, and there will be one or more detectives who can be called to scan DNA on any corpses that are found. Being the traitor is fun! I somehow happen to spawn right next to the same person pretty often (Poor Rocker!) He takes a Deagle to the face pretty well though.

Prop Hunt is essentially 'Hide and Seek' only way cooler! Also on Garry's Mod, you choose an item on the map, disguise yourself as it, and can either hide in plain sight hoping the hunters don't see you, or find somewhere sneaky to hide. As a prop you have a 'taunt', a noise which plays to help people find you. The sounds can be really short, or quite long. One of the taunts is a song played on a loop which I always seem to get when I have a really good hiding spot and someone asks me to taunt.

Oooooh, boy. DayZ is a mod for ARMA 2 (A military simulator, which I have never actually played. I bought the game specifically for DayZ). It's a multiplayer, open world, survival horror mod. You are a survivor of a zombie outbreak, trying to stay alive by finding food, medical supplies and weapons to fend off zombies and other players (the latter being the real danger). I choose to play DayZ as a 'hero' meaning I do very little killing of other players, preferring to help my friends by gathering things they need and giving them medical aid when needed. A lot of my friends play as 'bandits' which means they kill most other players on sight! Scary!

A crazy man has invited you on to his cruise ship. Sounds legit, right? The catch? You have to kill another passenger! While you are hunting, someone else is hunting YOU! The ships have various weapons which you can use to murder your quarry, all of which will award you a different monetary value at the end of the round. You also have 'needs' that you are required to deal with while you are scouring the ship for your victim. You need to eat and drink, sleep, shower, read and even use the bathroom. Some of your needs will see you die if you don't take care of them, while others will just make you smell terrible!
I was never a Sonic lover, I preferred Mario, while my sister was a huge Sonic fan. This game, however... is pretty much Mario Kart and I looooooove it! Both the single and multiplayer modes are super fun. I just wish my sister didn't have such terrible internet right now so we could play together (with 2000km between us to stop us reverting to bratty, hair-pulling rivals)
