Re: What are you playing right now?

To take a short break from Mount & Blade, before going back to conquer Caladria:
Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery EP
Very interesting game with it's combination of old-fashioned pixelart and music. Played the first episode so far.

Endless Space (Alpha)
MOO. If you now think of Master of Orion, rather than a cow then this could be something for you. Very pretty 4X-game set in endless space. The only thing I'm still a bit unsure of is the space combat, which looks cinematic and all but so far has no more strategic depth than rock, paper scissors.

Warlock - Master of the Arcane (Demo)
I failed to find Civ 5 particularly interesting, Warlock however - a modern take on Master of Magic - seems to push all the right buttons. Its a game typical for 2012 I'd say. Typical for a year that already brought Legend of Grimrock, a modern take of Dungeon Master, and that brought Kickstarter-kick-offs for games like Wasteland 2 and Shadowrun returns.
