The DS is a fine lil' system I've actually picked up a boat load of games for it lately and recommend most every one.
Just Cause was an extremely long distraction. Really enjoyed it because it was indeed a mix of everything Nav said. Nothing like viva la revolution.
Bully really ISN'T a bad game. Tight game play, ya know a lot of mini games woven together but unlike the GTA series they seem like something more than distractions. It's really cinematic tho'. Meaning, great voice acting and scenes that play out mostly like a movie. You pretty much do whatever the mission calls for to see the story advance along, and oddly it's a tale worth watching.
Dead Rising is just fun to blow time on.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance is right now spinning and I hear my pal and my girlfriend tearing stuff up which is always nice. I love games with active voice acting and makes glass shattering use of my 6.1.
As for the PC front I'm mostly on CoV or playing Age of Empires III's expansion War Chiefs. The new play styles are great, game spot's article on the expansion pretty much sums up anything I could say. Playing online isn't like playing YeOlde Amerikana SimColony any longer. You can unturtle the turtlers. Ahh the language of RTS games.
