In the news today we had Microsoft talking about improving Games for Windows Live . Speaking of fixing things, Crytek put up a patch for the Crysis 2 demo and Sports Interactive unleashed their massive January update on Football Manager 2011 .

Now it's time to sit back and relax with a list of everything that's been going on in PC gaming, and more importantly, watch the next episode of Adventure Call. Are you ready to begin your quest, traveller?
