I have never been through Sonic so I'll pass.

As for games after coding - Juicing the Brick (or Flicking the Bean - depending on your hardware configuration) isn't a bad option.

After a head scratching episode of programming I generally go for lighter fare.
I played with my wife, on WARCRAFT you perverts. When Cataclysm came out, after 4-5 years in the game, we didn't like it any more or the monthly charge for both of us so we both quit WOW.
De wife is passionate about Guild wars. I'm not fond of RTS so I play Wizard101, Neverend (get the patch or you can't cross the swamp), Soulbringer, Warcraft II or Age of Empires (last 2 battling my wife and she wins 90% of the time) so you can guess I prefer turn based games. Cannot get Sierra's Rise and Rule to run, wish they would come out with a sequel. Starwars: Knights of the Old Republic is pretty good. If you want a review of practically any RTS game my wife has played it and is a fan of Dreamcatcher releases.

While playing Skyrim again, I've pretty much wrote my own guide to a number of skills - Smithing, for example. But, I was wondering if anyone knew of any decent sites that I could submit them to?

GameFaqs used to be pretty good. I used to go there all the time when I played Nintendo RPGs.

Hehe, yeah, I used to use GameFAQs too. I have a few print outs of some of their guides still, for Dynasty Warriors 4 on the PS2.

I used get stuck a lot in those old RPGs. I also used GameFaqs a lot when I was playing Diablo 2 to create the perfect character.

Many programmers enjoy playing "The Grid" - you can play it easily in your web browser, at home, or at work, or both!

The Grid is a text-only strategy multiplayer game you play by actually typing in commands and fantasizing you are logged in a BBS. It does feel quite a bit like a boardgame and generally has you capturing squares, building farms, hiring wizards, stealing from your neighbors, inciting revolutions, forming alliances and even attempting to bless everyone, while fighting to gather all the resources a powerful master of the grid would need.

Well, the last time I played games, I was playing Braid and Plant vs Zombies. Braid was so awesome!
