Been playing a few games recently. First off I’ve actually got into Left4Dead 2 after being given it as a gift a while back but only playing it a couple of times with friends; now I’ve actually played some single player. It’s deeply engaging and has me on the edge of my seat in a way that I haven’t been for a very long time with gaming, which is fun if exhausting.

Also started playing Trine from the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle. Enjoying it, gorgeous artsy graphics, but nothing super-special in the way that Braid was.

After getting it going under Wine again, I played a game of DotA this morning. Didn’t do very well but enjoyed it and might play some more this summer. Wine’s support has improved in numerous ways which make the whole experience a lot pleasanter.
