I've been replaying The Witcher 2 and getting back into Battlefield Bad Company 2. I also have a copy of Hunted: The Demon's Forge here, so I'll give that a whirl later today.

You?

Last played Brink, but I'm taking a break in hopes of getting something resembling work done. I'll likely be back on TF2 this upcoming week, what with the spiffy new magician's cowl I just acquired for my demoman and the double-drop rate event.

Plugging through the Witcher 2 (casually), only just hit Act 2. Taking a break from Brink after rushing three characters to the level cap. Might pop back into TF2 as double drop week starts today (when huhmerica wakes up).

Otherwise, the usual hourly sessions of TF2 or L4D2.

That recent Far Cry 2 sales article on RPS made me feel like giving the game another try, after I got frustrated with its monotony back when it was first out. So I've been playing that quite a lot and I have to say I'm enjoying it. That said, it's already starting to feel slightly repetetive so who knows how long the honeymoon is going to last, but it's certainly not a game without merits.

Witcher 2. Not enjoying it as much as the first one though. Waiting on dedicated server for terraria. Not sure what I'll hit up after that.

I've actually been playing loads of Bad Company 2. I blame all the BF3 news that keeps cropping up. It bloody forces me to go play BC2 for hours on end. Apart from that its Starcraft 2 mostly, hit the youtube link below for some of our SC2 2v2 work :p

I’ve spent most of the week playing Red Dead Redemption. (Yes, it’s on a console-toy, I’m sorry. If it makes it any better, said console toy is hidden under my desk and connected to my secondary monitor :) I’m disappointed it hasn't had a PC release, as I’d love to ride around the old west with far draw distances and better-than-HD resolutions.

It's pretty good, though it’s very much Grand Theft Horse in structure, which is its biggest flaw. But after playing it, I really want a Stalker-esque RPG with Witcher-esque morality set in the old west.

With all this Duke Nukem Forever excitement I thought that a little WGRealms 2 was the ticket or it was until I got killed by Cyberdemons. It would be really amusing if it was better than what DNF will turn out to be.

I've gone back and started playing KotOR again (now that I've finally managed to get it reasonably working on Win7). I never did get very far in it first time round: after Taris and Dantooine, I think I did most of Tatooine, but that was it.

I've also been playing stuff that's been in sales recently: Just Cause 2, Mini Ninjas and Sam & Max.

Given future releases, I'm planning on replaying American McGee's Alice and, of course, Deus Ex, too.

Kind of want L.A. Noire, but I have to spend less time buying games and more time playing them.

I was considering starting Crysis, which I bought during the Steam sale a while back, but then I went and launched GalCiv II to mess around with something and I may be trapped there for a while now.

Playing Blood Bowl and Men of War: Assault Squad when friends are available, Far Cry 2 for when I've got half an hour spare. Red Orchestra is on the way, looking forward to playing Darkest Hour with some RPS chums. The mention of GalCiv II makes me want to play some grand strategy now... or Sins of a Solar Empire. Oh god.

I'm trying to power through the original Witcher so I can play Witcher 2 when my new computer bits arrive. However 'powering' for me means playing about four hours a week so it's taking me some time (just got to Chapter 5)

Also losing horrendously at Frozen Synapse, which is brilliant yet I am terrible

Terraria and Minecraft kill the rest of my time.

I've been playing Terraria and The Witcher 1. I plan on maybe giving that Duke Nukem thingie a shot, seems like fun. I wonder why I've never heard of that game before, it must've really been developed under the radar.

Minerva's Den for PC, it's really excellent and actually my second playthrough after completing it on the 360.

I've been playing Far Cry 2 (The missions are repetitive but I like driving around and setting things on fire for the hell of it too), Mini Ninjas, which is really quite good, and occasionally Brink which underneath all the bugs and poor developer choices is a great game. All of this up until last night, when I was hit by a wave of nostalgia for Dungeon Keeper when it came up on gog.com.

Right now, I am playing Fable 3 for PC. It's a great game, never thought I will like it THAT much. Beside that I am also playing Minecraft, Terraria, Bad Company 2, Left 4 Dead 2 and DiRT 3. Great games, all of them. :D

Dirt 2 is occupying a lot of my time lately. It's been on my "bought but not played" list for quite a while now and I figured it was about time I jolly well got on with it. I'm thoroughly enjoying haring around the tracks at LUDICROUS SPEEDS but some of the modes can be frustrating, as I seem to constantly be rammed off the track.

Finished Dragon Age 1 (+ expansion and all DLCs) a few weeks ago, started playing Dragon Age 2 (damn you, Steam, 50 euros. meh!). Occasionaly playing some clanbase in CoD:BO (which I don't like) and killing zombies in L4D2 (which I like a lot, has anyone tried Haunted Forest add-on campaign? Pretty tough on expert)

Since I can only play on consoles at the moment, I've been playing Just Cause 2, Assasin's Creed: Brotherhood, De Blob 2 recently on my PS3 and have just ordered 4 more games. Love buying a console late and having load of cheap older games to play.

I'm really struggling with gaming at the minute for whatever reason, but I have started playing Terraria a long with a friend who I gifted a copy too.

Really enjoying it so far but seems hard to make any progress on your own.

Currently, I'm playing nothing. As I'm "Participating in Contractual Employment for Monetary Renumeration". (In other words, I'm at work, but that's the last time I'll use that 4 letter swear word beginning with 'W'.)

Hope to update some of my steam games and start playing DoW 2 soon.

Frozen Synapse has me completely hooked. I'm regretting not getting it when I first heard about it last year. The multi-player unlike anything I've played before and seems like it could have a lot of depth to it, despite the simple presentation. Really loving it so far.

Absolutely hammering Frozen Synapse at the moment, so satisfying getting kills in multiplayer.

Other games which get a look in occasionally are Bad Company 2, TrackMania, Combat Mission:BN, Magicka and HOI3.

I got gifted Terraria yesterday, so I've played a bit of that, and I also started another playthrough of Portal 2.

I'm thinking of diving back into Clannad (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clannad_%28visual_novel%29) to play through the rest of the side content, and I really want to replay Fate/stay night (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fate/stay_night) at some point (hopefully after this (http://rnpatch.blogspot.com/) comes out), but aside from those, most of the games I've been playing have been on PSP.

After finishing Half Life 2 and it's episodes I decided to clear off some stuff from the hard drive. Decided to have a quick play of Deus Ex before deleting it, I'd played through it on the PS2 (worse environments apparently but much better inventory system.)

After struggling with it a bit I looked up and realised three hours had passed in an instant. Looks like I'll be playing through, at least to see what Chinatown looks like not chopped up for console.

I just finished HL2 episode 2. I'd been stuck at the final battle and left it for more than a year. Amazingly I had managed to avoid spoilers about the ending for the last 4 years :-)

I'm also 17 hours into the Witcher and am not sure I can wait to finish it before staring the Witcher 2 whose icon mocks me on my desktop. RPG games take so much time.

I'm debating starting to play Cargo as a diversion.

Steam and other digital sales mean I have enough games to last me the rest of my life...

I'm playing Frozen Synapse a lot and am starting to feel like I'm getting better. I still lose about half of my matches but at least I feel like I lose them well as I do in chess. Otherwise I've been playing some TF2 recently, partly, laughably, for coursework. I also need to get back to Mass Effect to finish my final perfect run through before Mass Effect 3.

03-06-2011, 02:22 PM
Far Cry 2, though its horribly repetitive. I am enjoying it and would like to finish it, but it has more to do with being ill, needing the distraction and finding most other games a bit too demanding right now, rather than it being good.

Also been playing Frozen Synapse, mainly singleplayer. I'm not sure I've got the hang of it enough yet to venture out into much MP at the moment. I'm so bad at strategy games. I do love FS though.

Brink, though that's taken a back seat the last few days while I've been setting everything (and everyone) on fire in Far cry 2.

On and off I dip into Trackmania, L4D (1 and 2), Battlefield BC2, Nation Red and Magicka - generally when my mates are about.

You would be surprised. A lot of people dive straight into the multiplayer and seem to do quite well. The community also seems to be very friendly and helpful so people will likely provide helpful suggestions if you want them.

Witcher 2 baby!

Seriously though, it's a good game and I've been spending so much time gawking at things/doing side quests that I haven't even gotten past the first chapter, even though I've spent about six hours playing the game.

With people saying it takes 25-30 hours for a normal play-through, at this rate it'll take me FOREVER! I guess that isn't a bad thing though...

Selesnya

Other than that, Starcraft 2 and Team Fortress 2.

I've nearly finished Borderlands (I think), and have been thoroughly entertained by it.

I've also abandoned my first playthrough of Dragon Age: Origins (I may come back to it later) and started another Bioware game instead, Mass Effect 2, which I'm enjoying very much indeed. I loved the first game and this one seems to be excellent as well.

Also having my weekly TF2 fix.

Just finished up with the Witcher 2, so I'll likely be going back to Raven Shield every other day. La Noire is beckoning on my PS3, and I'm also considering going back in for some Civ 5 after an 8 month or so break.

The problem I have with Civ 5 is that I start to lose interest in the latter, modern stages of the game (I prefer the more AOE2 vibe of the earlier, ancient history years. Also I love playing big games - ie. a huge map and a high number of AI players, but even on my relatively powerful system, the turns start taking way too much time to calculate as the game progresses. Not sure if that's something they've improved during my absence.

LA Noire. I finished the game earlier this week but I still have one of the two DLC cases to go and most of the freeroam missions. About once a year I am glad that I own a console and in 2011 that distinction goes to LAN.

I've nearly exhausted Terraria until more updates come along, so it'll soon be Frozen Synapse, Fate of the World or SpaceChem. I would have heard nothing of those four games if it wasn't for RPS, so cheers for that. New Vegas still gets the occasional outing - four achievements left, so I may as well scoop them up. Desktop Dungeons is still regularly poked, to stay in shape for the new version.

I'm currently bouncing between Witcher 1 and LA Noire.

I also picked up Blood Bowl.....on xbox. Wow. I got sold from the walkthru posted on RPS and got unsold by the PC price. Found it at a local blockbuster closing down (one of 4 in town) and got it cheap.

I like it...but now I wish I had gotten it on PC. Don't shoot me.

I'm currently alternating between Darksiders and The Witcher (1). Darksiders I got a little while back for free with a processor upgrade, but just fired it up due to the recent press of the sequel. Pretty straight God of War ripoff, but still fun.

The Witcher, well, I'm not really getting into. I'm only in Chapter 2 so far, but it seems very much like "Go to box A and nowhere else. Complete quests in Box A. Go to Box B and nowhere else. Complete quests in Box B." Kind of like Arcania. I hope it opens up geographically later on.

Dwarf Fortress. I've always loved the concept, but it's taken me this many years to find the time to watch a few tutorial videos and get over the awful interface.

And it's...good. Not wonderful. Very incomplete and not really the direction I would've taken in making this kind of simulated world game (too much micromanagement), but compelling and unique nonetheless. Needs more competition.

I was up until 2am in the morning last night fighting Letho in the witcher 2 :( I have heard complaints about this boss and its all justified, the guy basically cheats and its frustrating as hell, especially as the game has been fine for the difficulty so far. I eventually beat him without putting the difficulty down though, just use aard at the start of the fight and spam bombs and knives at him, he went down after less than a minute :\

My brother got Starcraft 2 recently so I've been back into that quite a lot the past couple weeks. Other than that, I finally got around to trying Machinarium and was very quickly made to feel like a simpleton when I ground to a halt with the puzzles. My brain does not get along well with the borked, abstract logic of adventure games it seems.

Also have frozen synapse ready to play but just havent been in the mood for it yet, so I'll probably be checking that out somewhere down the line.

Mostly been playing The Witcher 2 and making a concerted effort not to get distracted by any other shiny things and to stay clear of playing too much Starcraft 2, so that I actually get my moneys worth and finish something for a change.

Awesome game that improves on the original in so many ways. And that was a great game to begin with. Just reached the start of chapter 2 (I'm slow,) and have taken the Scoia'tael path. Already interested in seeing how different it might have been.

I enjoyed the game a lot, but was rather irritated to find it is not complete (ends abruptly after the 3rd main planet with a cliffhanger even less satisfying than most cliffhangers).

Steam currently looks as follows

BBC2 - which is just taking up space. In fact un-installing now.
Blood Bowl -Got a couple of leagues going with mate. awesome.
Crysis 2 - 1p was pants. 2p is actually pretty good. reminds me of the space waster above (without the massive maps) but with a little more macro tactics. The suit makes for some funny moments.
L4D 1 + 2 - return to it on a regular basis. Escort the gnome is awesome.
Magicka - My lame mates are dragging heals on LAN; but I made a deal with myself. No more then the first level until I get to LAN this.
Plain Sight - Left over from the recent promotion. Trippy but awesome.
Portal 2 - of course.
Serious Sam 1 + 2 - I'd never played them until the recent mid week sale ( I think it was mid week). Will be nice if lame mates get the LAN in gear.
Team Fortress 2 - Of course again.

Been playing Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 recently. I never really got into it playing singleplayer (installed over a year ago, never got past level two or so), but the recent sale has had us hunting turrerists with a vengeance. Seriously. 4-6 of us vs 99 of them. Bring it.

Spacechem is ongoing, although I haven't touched it in over a week except to see if anyone I know is as far as I am. Nope. The level I'm on looks difficult, as well, so I dread going back.

Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising. I've been going through that a few missions here, a few missions there. That was immediately preceded by DOW2, which I blew through in a couple of days to a week.

Some Section 8: Prejudice, TF2, a little bit of Rainbow Six: 3. Oh, and I finally finished Braid the other night.

Yeah, I've been mixing it up a bit.

Witcher 2. Good game so far (Act 1 atm), but the boss fights are a bit shit. Kayryan (or what it's called) is just frustrating. Learn to mash the right buttons at the right time, then trial and error where to hide from the blows. Bad game design, me thinks. Apart from that, it is good fun.

Finished conviction yesterday, it might be my favourite ever splinter cell. But its no stealth game.

But its a great action shooter, I played through it silently headshoting and snapping necks. But after the end I ran about a deniable ops level with the scar (you unlock with the uplay achievements things) and suddenly the last known position thing was beautifully poetic.
I'd grab one person, snap his neck and prepare and execute 3 more with the assault rifle, while everyone rushes and supressive fires where you were while you circle around and make use of the misdirection.

It's sloppy and brutal and I can understand why an ardent splinter cell fan would shun it. But having previously loved kill switch, rb6 Vegas and sc:chaos theory I love the cross section.

Try to keep your Quen shield up at all times, and remember to stock up on potions before the fight starts. Both go a long way in most boss fights, but particularly this one due to the slow-ish nature of attacks - as long as you've got your Quen up, you'll hardly feel a scratch.

As for what I'm playing right now, I was forced to leave my PC back at university for a week, so I am currently scrabbling around for games to play on an old 2003 rig that has degraded so much it can hardly run KotOR or CS:S without stuttering or crying out in pain. So far I've got by on Civ 3 and X-Com, but both have proved more than a little frustrating. Old games, eh? Civ 3's not that hard (or old) I suppose, but I never did complete X-Com - I think last time I got as far as preparing to invade Mars, when two of my main bases were suddenly invaded and destroyed due to my terrible layouts and lack of defences. Twas the nail in the coffin. Still, I'm not doing too bad on this one, and this time I'm actually bothering to use medkits and motion scanners!

Possible spoilers. Yeah, that's pretty much what I did after some embarrassing five tries with my dodging strategy. Saved me a couple of retries during the boulder throwing sequence. I was a bit surprised how quick the fight was over after that, not even another quick time event for the grenade (?) throw. Glad this is over. Apart from that, I am starting to get the hang of the fighting. Still, larger groups of baddies send me into the "line 'em up and hit them with grenades" mode. And god, I hate Wraiths.

Wraiths = specter oil and the axii sign. They have a chance to just absorb all your damage so use axii to make them fight each other and pick off the last one by hammering them with the Aard sign whenever they try and move, since it stops them hitting back.

I've been trying to complete the Extreme missions for Rise of the Triad. It's really brutal. If I was to describe it I would say that it's like Super Mario Bros.: the Lost Levels to the original's Super Mario Bros. ROTT is not really a game that I would recommend to someone who hadn't played it back in the day just as I wouldn't recommend repeatedly butting your head against a brick wall to anyone but if you play the game with these add-on missions it suddenly turns into something that I would recommend.

@Serenegoose: Yes, spectre oil or whichever fits best for the situation is a no brainer for me right now. Igni works also fairly good on the Wraiths, as do the ignition bombs. I was a bit surprised how easy it is to hammer them with heavy attacks once only one is left. Just one more of these bladed nightgowns (nice model design btw) and they pretty much raped me most of the time.

Fighting groups of even weak enemies can be devastating at the beginning of the game, which makes sense I guess - strength in numbers and all that. It is just a little bit unsatisfying to be able to kite to the point where the enemies turn their backs towards you and start to walk away, making it easy to nail them with heavy blows, signs or daggers.

I will apologize in advance. The new version of Tales of Maj'Eyal (or more commonly, ToME) has been released. It is a graphical roguelike with varying levels of difficulty, integrated IRC chat (so you see folks saying stuff like, "Should I be worried about <links monster>?" followed by ":So and so: has died to aforementioned monster"), and online character profiles to stalk your mates.

It is amazing, and again... I apologize in advance.

What a bloody brilliant game. I honestly can't remember the last time I played a game that induced such a basic physical response in me, literally heart pounding, blood rushing, finger shaking tension as I came close to the killing blow on the final boss (having been murdered by him on thousands of previous and doomed attempts)

finished The Witcher 2 a couple days ago. It's a shame about the ending, really. Chapter 3 doesn't have a single interesting side quest, there's like one real main quest and on top of that the level design is poor. The game just betrays its principles, there's no resolution to your decisions and no new dilemmas.

Finished the witcher 2 earlier, *spoilers ahead people* (sorry squirrelfanatic, my brain switched off I wasn't thinking)

personally I am with Letho on this one, I mean what does Geralt see in this Yennefer character? From what I have seen there isn't one sorceress in either game that could be described as decent or good, they all seem obsessed with manipulating everyone around them simply because they enjoy the power trip. Even Triss spent most of the first game happily manipulating Geralt so she could become an advisor to a king, if she had managed to keep her position she probably would have left the guy to rot in jail. Honestly, if this Yennefer is anything like the other sorceresses (Letho suggests she is) I am going to call shenanigans, she must have cast some sort of spell on poor Geralt because nobody can be that fucking gullible.

oh and great game too.

Jockie
07-06-2011, 07:28 PM
Bear in mind that Yennifer as described by Letho is post-wild hunt and therefore amnesiac. Admittedly losing his memory didn't turn Geralt into a whiny entitled eedjet, but there's probably more to the character than that. Presumably she's a character in the books that take place before Witcher 1, has anyone actually read them?

Playing League of Legends and giving Fallout NV a second playthrough with both the bits of DLC and the rather cool Project Nevada mod, I haven't actually gotten as far as either of the dlc bits yet because I'm not high enough level.

I hear that it doesn't happen for everyone though so you might get lucky, if you do get stuck on a timing based puzzle there is probably a thread on the GOG forums with the details, at least thats where I found out how to fix it.

Just started Deus Ex for the first time a little while ago. It really is impressive. Really enjoying it. So far what I like best about it is that it's hard enough to make you use all of your tools (or at least you can't just default to the same approach over and over) but not so hard that I find myself doing much reloading. And they really do give you so many approaches to doing things! And characters respond to your actions! And the story is silly but also rather good.

Let's see, on the PC I am of course playing The Witcher 2, Rift, Crysis 2 and the occasional bout of Dragon Age 2. On the console side of things I'm playing Red Faction Armageddon (360), Mortal Combat (PS3) and Infamous 2 with Demon's Souls still getting a bit of love here and there. I'm also really enjoying Outlander and Gatling Gears on XBLA.

Hamilton's Great Adventure. It's a actipn puzzle game and it's hair pulling sometimes because you have to restart the whole level if something goes wrong.

BrŁtal Doom. It's a mod for Skulltag/GZDoom. This makes me playing Doom on Hurt Me Plenty difficuly instead of the harder Ultra Violence. This mod features harder/faster enemies, changed weapons, A LOT of gore and blood and Mortal Kombat like fatalities if you are in Berserk mode. I like it. :)

@sk2k:
Brutal Doom is a very good mod, although personally i hate the gameplay changes. Still, i liked the gore and i hope the author makes a gore-only version of it.

Just started Just Cause 2.

Is it just me or is this game stupidly hard on Normal difficulty? I'm literally an hour or so into the game and I've had to replay a mission about six times because I either: 1) run out of bullets, because the enemies have skin made of metal or 2) Die because my health evaporates in seconds.

I'm loathe to lower the difficulty level (it can't be changed mid-game apparently) but I think I might have to at this early stage.

I think the general consensus is that JC2 is better on easy, because you can forget about health and just have fun making spectacular explosions and doing sillies with the grappling hook.

I had heard that alright.

I'm just slightly concerned that if I lower the difficulty, the game will become too easy. I like a reasonable challenge in a game: if I have a choice between too hard and too easy then I'll take the trickier route.

I think part of the problem lies in the open nature of the game. This is a far cry from a cover-based shooter; in fact, there's hardly any cover at all. With enemies constantly shooting at you and nowhere to hide, your health decreases rapidly. Maybe if you had a few portable medkits or something it might alleviate the problem.

The part I'm stuck on involves being shot at whilst on a moving car, and the only cover to be found is by taking refuge whilst desperately clinging on to the front grille of the vehicle!

I'll try it on easy and if I'm finding it a breeze I'll slog through on normal.

thats early on isn't it, took me twelve attempts that did. fun game, gets a bit too repetitive though so I keep it for short half an hour plays every now and again.

Thinking about which game to play in my backlog after the witcher 2 has led me to start vampire: the masquerade for the first time. I picked the Malkavian because it sounded the most fun, I am not sure if this was intentional on the part of the devs but I haven't laughed this much at a game in ages.

Also, best ingame computers ever.

If that is the bit quite near the start, I remember that was when I discovered the joy of grappling the enemy car bonnets to the road surface. Won't kill them but slows them down nicely! (spectacularly!)

It's frustrating as all hell on normal and can even get hectic on easy. No reason to play it on anything but. Walker laid this out this pretty well in his WIT, as I recall.

Edit: Yep, here we go:


I was playing on Casual. When reviewing a game itís normal to play on Normal. Thatís the setting by which a game should usually be judged. But almost immediately on Normal I was finding the game was curtailing my opportunities for fun by killing me. As troops were dispatched to deal with my naughty ways, I found that I was all too easily taken out. I restarted in Casual and found everything a great deal more fun. This isnít a stealth game, this isnít a survival action, this is a lunaticís playground. To have to play cautiously feels like a bastardisation of the point.

Regarding playing Just Cause 2 on easy, i would actually even recommend a trainer for infinite ammo, cash to get any vehicle you want, when you want and unbreakable rope.
Sure, play around without cheating but eventually you will find great joy in dragging things around with your unbreakable rope so it's totally worth it.

I'd been thinking about picking up Just Cause 2 when I got Windows 7 set up, but you guys have very helpfully talked me out of it. If the only way to make the game fun is to remove any challenge and play it as a destruction sandbox, it'll be fun for about 10 minutes for me (based on past experience with such things, I'm looking at you GTA) so I'd be better off spending my money elsewhere.

Yeah, it's single-player is another "interactive cutscene/pop-up shooting gallery" but it has some great levels and pacing. Maybe it's because I'm a veteran, but the extra realism of MoH makes it way better than any Call of Duty game single-player wise, at least for me.

Oh don't get me wrong, it's still a fun game without cheating and playing on easy. It's just...less fun. But you should try it either way. I think it's MUCH more fun than gta in regards to fucking around.
Plus the campaign, as shallow as it is, offers pretty decent enjoyment too. So you do a few missions and then fuck around and then repeat. After/if you had enough of the game by then, try cheating and you will get a little extra mileage out of it.

Finished SpaceChem! :D :D :D

Well, I still have most of the challenges to do, including some of the optional production levels. But I beat the final level, and man it was satisfying.

Spoilers ahead, sort of. (I didn't even read the story text, and I won't go into any specific detail about my solution, but some people might not want to know anything in advance about the final level.)

My first attempt got me a sort of borderline workable ship, once I'd fixed the obvious problems. But it fired far too slowly, and failed completely after too few cycles. I spent a lot of time optimising that flawed design, and running it again and again hoping that the boss would only take 5 hits, which I thought I could probably manage on a lucky and mistake-free run.

I finally realised I needed to rip it up and start again, and this time I knew a couple of pitfalls to avoid, so I was able to set up a much better basic design. It still took a fair bit of optimisation, but I eventually sorted it out so that it fired at a decent rate and worked perfectly for long enough. (It still became almost useless once the storage tanks filled up, but it didn't seem to have any inevitable point of failure, so if necessary I might have been able to eke out a last hit or two with enough patience.)

I was able to repeat my success pretty quickly, so it wasn't a fluke run, but there are a few asteroid patterns that give my ship trouble. Has anyone managed a design that would run well perpetually? I think mine would have kept firing forever, and remained controllable, but the firing rate slowed down a lot once the tanks filled, and I would have had to rely on the laser and missiles occasionally deciding to fire at the right time relative to eachother, which I'm not sure would have happened. (Their supplies weren't entirely independent.)

Anyway, yeah, game of the year! I think I need a break before trying to clear all the challenges (which, incidentally, are achievements done right). Might play a bit of Morrowind -- I discovered Morrowind Overhaul (http://morrowindoverhaul.net/blog/) the other day, which takes a massive amount of time and frustration and trial-and-error out of getting a really nice-looking collection of mods working together. Might also get back into Devil May Cry 4, and the Broken Sword "Director's Cut", which seems pretty great so far.

I've drifted back to Shogun 2 now that I've finished the Witcher 2 - the 1.2 patch bugs me a bit. I can't remember what default equipment I'm meant to start with and it's dumped a whole ton of free stuff in my lap. I don't want the free stuff it seems 'too good' but I don't want to ditch the equipment I ought to start with either. I'm probably missing an obvious solution however.

Finished Mirror's Edge which is good fun aside from when ALL THE BLOOM stops me seeing where the heck I'm going and when it does it's best to force you into combat.

I then played a few hours of Aliens vs. Predator (the newest one) and that was pretty much all it took for me to decide it wasn't for me. Got it in a sale though so I've probably got my money's worth anyway.

Next up I'll be having a go at Audiosurf after being gifted it by the suave and good-looking SoulPride through the kindness thread. :)

EDIT: Ah, I see Audiosurf is more of a "pick up and bash out a few songs" type (or will be for me) than a "sit and play for a few hours" sort of affair. In which case next I'm going to be having a romp around in FUEL.

Vampire bloodlines.

I visited a museum and saw a wolf man again, there were dinosaurs which was fun, but the gift shop was closed which was sad. I also made a friend called Patty and introduced her to my other friend Pisha, haven't seen Patty since though....but then I met an old friend called Samantha, we laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed, then I left her alone because the man wanted to talk to me on the pay phone. Between chatting with a jester and staring at street lights I am wondering when all the mindless head bashing begins and makes the game fall down a hole, am I close when I reach hollywood or is it far ahead of me?

It sounds like you're in the Downtown area. Hollywood is just after that.

The first half of Hollywood is ok. However, the second half - and large parts of the rest of the game - are ... not as good.

Finally mixed up a working modded Oblivion, with a character who I can stand to look at for the brief time I spend on the inventory screen. Surprisingly time consuming if you aren't a regular modderer. Now to actually play the damn thing. Last time I played this was a loooong time ago, so quite interested in seeing how I feel about it now I am older and supposedly wiser.

Other than that I occasionally log into LotRO to stab things with my Hobbit and I was working my way through Jade Empire again until recently, I've stalled for the time being. I also have a copy of TW2 that is still waiting for me to upgrade my PC, curse life and it's financial trivialities such as buying food.

After not being grabbed by AvP I went back and read the Wot I Think of it and realised I'm pretty much exactly where Alec was. The game wasn't scary enough to be compelling the abilities of the Predator and the xenomorph weren't put to use well enough to want me to keep playing as them. I actually like the movement of the predator including the way jumping worked, but found the invisibility to not be up to much once marines knew there was something in the area. And the melee combat for both beasties is clunky. The special kill animations were all pretty good when they weren't rendering you into a big, immobile bullseye for any enemy that spotted you but I rarely felt threatening when I got up close unless I was the xeno and sneaking up behind somebody.

The movement of the xeno is good too, actually, and in fact the "tutorial" bit in the alien campaign is good fun.

Basically there's the makings of a decent game there somewhere, I just couldn't be arsed going any further.

Anyway, tonight I think I'll get the REFUELED mod (that's the best one from what I've read) and give Fuel a bash.

So the fabled downfall of the game is only an hour long or shorter, seems a bit harsh that it has gathered a reputation like it has. A question though, is the hit to dexterity worth upgrading your armour to light leather?

Presently working my way through the Witcher 2 (about 6 - 8 hours in). One, that game is absurdly beautiful graphically even on mid way settings (the bubble scene was particularly impressive). Two,the combat is no joke compared to the original, and they do a piss poor job of explaining about the various weapon enhancements and potions at your disposal right at the beginning. Albeit having played the original I was familiar with the whetstones, oils and potions but it wasn't clear that you really needed to be relying on that stuff from the off. They could do with some tutorials for new players. Three, the stealth sneaking is a tad pants, save regularly.

I think I'm done with SpaceChem, though it's quite possible it will suck me back in. I finished all of the levels, but didn't meet all of the Challenges. It's really tempting to try, but I reckon the hard ones might drive me a little bit crazy. I'd probably end up caught between obsessive interest and failure-tinged despair, so I think I'll end this on a high note. It really is pretty much a lock for my GOTY, though. There'd have to be something amazing out of nowhere, or Deus Ex 3 exceeding my expectations by about a hundredfold.

So, still trying to get into Morrowind! There's been glimpses of awesome, but I don't know if I'll be able to hack the pace. I'm hoping to at least enjoy some exploration before I get bored, though. It does seem like a lovely world.

1. Witcher 2. I am drawing near the end of Chapter 2 (Roche's Path), which was a little bit dull. SPOILER ALERT!! The sequence where you end up in the spirit world had a great feeling to it though. Experiencing the events of the past after you've learned a bit of them through research and conversation made those scenes really atmospheric. END SPOILER ALERT.

2. JA2, Patch 1.13. Just started out to play this game (again), but it is my first time with the 1.13 patch. Looks good so far, although I just have completed the very first battle. Extra equipment slots through backpacks and all that seems like a very neat idea, although right now I am still a bit confused by all the slots. Will probably play this off and on whenever I've got some 15mins to spare.

3. Disciples II. Got it during the GOG sale weekend. I remember having played this game during the early 2000s, but it seemed a bit prettier to me back then. Still fun to play though. Started with the Empire campaign and already found out that different approaches to your party setup yield dramatically different results in battle. One of my favourites is the cheesy Archangel - Squire/Knight combo and the Mage(hero) - Squire/Knight - 2Healer setup, with one frontliner tanking all the damage while getting healed back to nearly full health every turn. I guess this won't work for a long time, but right now it serves me well. Also: The Thief is a nicely designed hero. Love his abilities (poisoning - weakens the enemy party before a battle, duel - fight the leader of the enemy party 1on1).

EDIT: I forgot to mention Mass Effect 2 as a fourth option for my electronic evening amusements. I have to admit that I am playing as female Shepard, but only because I couldn't work out a decent looking male. Also, pink lipstick + pink eye shadow + pink combat suit on a vanguard makes one aggressive bouncing ball.

I'm currently playing Episodes From Liberty City, starting with The Lost and The Damned which after the sore experience of GTA4 seems very, very nice.

I've also just finished Witcher 2 and was quite disappointed. I guess some spoilers will follow now, so beware. What I didn't like on the general level was the structure of the game - each chapter corresponds with some sort of central hub and quests around it. It was indeed good for a first chapter, but after that it's really tiring to anticipate and play out the same formula, especially in the third chapter where all I wanted was just to finally finish the game.
The plot was a bit muddled, and you are expected to constantly swallow many confusing names and facts. I didn't feel puzzled, however, and in the end everything was explained quite well. My grudge with the plot is closely connected with another prominent aspect of the game, and that's how the character of Geralt is represented. He often feels amorphous in his motives, his feelings are intangible but mostly inconsistent (and that was in the books, to some extent; for me, he didn't have distinctive characteristics and was seguing from one quality to the other) . I understand the trick with amnesia was played to give the player ability to make his own choices, so that you can shape your very Geralt, but even sticking to character-defining choices you're left with an amoeba of a character, though with a touch of charisma.
As it stands, the game lacks balance. Quen is overpowered, there's no need whatsoever to put any points into alchemy tree, and the 'hard' difficulty level fails to provide a decent challenge. Add some annoyances with UI (to be fair, some can already be dealt with by mods), the general feeling of catering towards more mainstream crowd, and you have me disappointed.

Right now I'm looking for more games to plunge into.

Where on earth did you find a squad that works even remotely together? I played only rush for quite a while, then got really bored of being the only guy that was actually rushing and quit BFBC2 completely. Recently I started a new soldier and started playing primarily conquest. That brought the game back to life though the aggressive recon style might have had something to do with that as well. Still have not tried SDM even once, I just don't see the point. Constantly switching kits and weapons has managed to keep the game fresh this time around, though platinuming the more marginal weapons is quite the chore.

I'm also having trouble motivating myself to finish Witcher 2. I was expecting it to be the game to restore my faith in modern actiony RPGs but that hasn't happened. The fights are meaningless by now being able to just button smash my way through any opposition and I'm constantly finding better things to do than slogging through the remainder of the fodder just to get to the story bits again.

Also bought Terraria but it seems I already got the ore hoarding out of my system with Minecraft and haven't gone back to 2D adventuring that often anymore.

Finished vampire, great game but it gets a bit too shooty, less talky in some places, especially towards the end (Hallowbrook and the sewers). on the whole it contains some incredible moments that make the whole experience worth while. Very notable that it only crashed once in the entire time I played it, that must be a new record for PC games that I have played!

I am trying to figure out which game on the backlog I am going to play next, think I will draw up a short list.

Things to start.
The undergarden
hitman; blood money
Machinarium

things to finish.
Kings bounty: the legend
Doom 2 (don't really fancy going back to that though)
or I could give the void another chance.

Any thoughts on those?

Currently just started Deus Ex, for the first time!! It's pretty good fun, shooting isn't as bad as everyone made out, yet it doesn't seem to me like you have as many options to complete a level as people have said.

Also, working my way through Trine, although the lack of mid level save is fairly annoying.

I'm playing far too many things at the moment...

Off the top of my head -

Terrarriariara (spelling?)
Minecraft
Dwarf Fortress
Empire Total War, until it crashes, then I go onto-
Medieval 2 Total War
Oblivion

And then on the sex box -
Far Cry
La Noire
Battlefield BC 2

Also, I like raptr... this be me - http://www.raptr.com/mrchinchin25

I'm having a blast with Red Faction Armageddon, moreso than I thought. I didn't really think it was going to be that great but it's just pure, destructive fun in a cheesy sci-fi setting. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Conviction, desperately trying to win an achievement thingy you get for wiping out a whole level without being detected... Its tough.

EDIT: Wheeee I did it, 50 people killed a row without 1 so much as getting a look at me. I celebrated by running around with an assault rifle shooting on sight and in the game.

Dawn of War II, the single player campaign. I know I'm a little late, but steam sales and I'm being a broken student until late 2009 prevented me from playing this game earlier.

Today I played a bit of the Magicka campaign with a friend. Great fun.

Currently I am struggling to defeat Dr.Fetus in Super Meat Boy. Started playing the dark world and retro warp zones. Will give it another go later on :>

I have an issue with starting too many games at once, i'm currently playing max payne 2 which is great, awesome shooting and solid story and characters too, the witcher which i'm also enjoying as well as machinarium, plants vs zombies, some bc2 and halfway through about 10 other games but not currently playing them much

Space Pirates and Zombies
Though I've reached Chapter 4 with a Beam/Armour build and it's becoming obscenely hard, the balance is all broken if you go down this route :(

Witcher
For some reason the original totally passed me by so I'm pleasantly enjoying it

Bloodbowl
Divisions of Death funtimes!
