Mass Effect for PC from Steam.
Solid gameplay and combat interface
Fantastic voiceover work (bar none, it's excellent)
Highly customizable main character appearance and combat abilities
Unlockable achievements promoting multiple playthroughs
Story-affecting dialogue decisions
Quick-Save option makes manually saving progress near effortless
Minor glitches (apparently fewer than on 360)
Repetitive appearance to sidequest areas

LA Noire - 7/10
It started as a promising game, but then it kept going. And going. And going. It's too overly long with not enough difference between the cases to make it worth playing. Not a bad game, but... I'd wait til the price inevitably goes down.

It just gets longer. When you replay after downloading new cases, all the DLC cases get put into the storyline. Personally, I think that's a pretty cool feature of the game...but for people that think it drags on... it just gets worse haha

Can you play the DLC cases at any time if you download them after finishing the game, or do they actually have to come within the context of the game, meaning you have to replay the entire game when you get an additional DLC?

The Whispered World 6/10
- Awesome drawings, with a lot of details
- Interesting concept. Will we destroy the world by trying to stop that?
- Finally a cute pet for the main character
- The music was nice, but nothing special
- The voice acting in the German and the English version is not too good. (Especially the main character)
- The main character is constantly depressed which really got my mood down
- Puzzles I have seen in too many games. Oh the key is in the lock on the other side of the door but if I just let it drop it on the ground I will never get it. I know you know this puzzle if you played more than 3 adventure games that are not by TTG.
Without this end the game would have still been a 8/10. This game somehow made my appreciate TTGs style a lot more At least in their games I always know what I am looking for. A f***** mouse. GOD!

A friend on Steam (thank you Ted12) told me a few days ago that Portal was being given away on Steam. Naturally, I seized the opportunity and downloaded it. I finished it today, so... here's my two cents on Portal.
Graphics: Can't really complain. Everything looks realistic, so that's good enough for me.
Gameplay: Imaginative design. Who would have thought that making physics your personal bitch would be so hard, though? I died a few times before I got everything right, and the final fight with GLaDOS was such a pain to get right I was about ready to punch a hole in the keyboard. When I finally finished it, though, it felt surprisingly satisfying. Tough game, but worth the effort.
Story: We have absolutely no backgroung in this game about GLaDOS, Aperture Science Labs or even the mute protagonist Chell. All that you are told is "Stand back. The portal will open in 3...2...1..." and you just start the game. At first it seems like a simple physics game, but as the test gets noticably tougher and tougher, you become less sure of your success (and acquisition of cake), you see the darker side of GLaDOS, and your first thoughts as you near the end of the tests is "GET ME THE HELL OUT OF HERE" When you finally get to GLaDOS, you know there's no turning back. Only one of you is going to survive, and you know it's not going to be you unless you move. When you finally fight her, you get to see her different personalities as she breaks down. Best of all, as a reward for all of your trouble, you finally earn your freedom.
AND your cake.
Final Conclusion: This game was a triumph. I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS. It's hard to overstate my satisfaction. Seriously, though, I was WAITING for this Game to impress me. It did NOT disappoint.

How can anyone ever give it less than 10/10.

I can. But I did not. Because I did not rate the episodes yet.
And I don't want to have to replay the season again just to rate them. That's how much I didn't like most of the season.
