I purchased Metro Last Light, Space Engineers, Wasteland 2, Dark Souls 2 (for PC this time), and Alpha Protocol. I went from not wanting to use up 20 bucks to spending over 100. I can't fathom why I do this (not complaining, though).

Oddly enough Alpha Protocol is the game I'm having most fun with right now. It does the choice/decision thing far better than the Mass Effect series (up until this point), the story is fantastic (it reminds me a lot of the Agent story from SWTOR), and the gameplay while not great and needs polish, is still fun. It is no masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but it is made by Obsidian (Stick of Truth/Fallout 1 and 2/Planescape: Torment/Fallout: New Vegas/etc), so you can expect that same level of story/player choice and it really is a solid game especially for $15 on Steam.

No clue why I didn't pick this up sooner.

Alpha Protocol is fukin awesome, just remember to invest points in chain shot for the pistol... for the boss fights, which can be a pain in the arse otherwise.

It really is great. Lucky for me I went stealth/pistol build as that's how I always like to play this type of game. I'd say the only problem I have with the game is the bosses. The controls just aren't quite as responsive as they should be for such action packed fights. The pistol makes it a lot easier for sure, but as for a legitimate negative the bosses should have been slightly slower paced with an extra method of victory for stealth guys.

The rest of the game is really good, loving the story/characters especially.

Been playing a lot of FIFA 14 recently. I totally suck but there are literally no other decent games out for PS4 at the minute.

I can recommend Knack all day to anyone who enjoys an old school style platformer/beat 'em up. It's like a mix of Crash Bandicoot/a Pixar film. I beat it 3 times in a row to unlock all the forms/gadgets, it's addicting if you like those type of games. I'd say it's prob my favorite game on the PS4 (having not played Infamous yet). I like that style of game, though, where as many people feel that kind of game is outdated these days.

Get it on sale if you can (Amazon has it for $30 but you can probably find it cheaper). I bought it at 60 dollars and enjoyed it a lot, but again I love that style of game and miss the old Crash style of gameplay so it really hit the right spot for me. Just know what you are getting if you buy it, it's a linear platforming beat 'em up with tons of hidden walls to find and secret items to collect and stuff.

Hoping so. I actually have a trip to Ottawa coming up in June that I thought was the weekend after ea ufc was released and was kind of sad I wouldn't get any time with it because I can pretty much only play on weekends but checked the dates recently and my trip is actually the weekend before so I'll be coming home to it in my mailbox!
