Trust me, when you open your map, and you see the purple dots moving around at all different locations and some of them capping a turret and running off, the rest of the team definitely didn't understand defense ;)
You can tell the Jedi definitely knew how to win -- they capped the middle first, built up a sizable defense, then capped the generator that our team wasn't currently capping and delegated a few men there. They would send out their star player to cap the generator no one was defending while our team tried in vain to grab one of the other two generators.
Once the guy capped our generator, the entire team rushed back to cap it, leaving the other two turrets to just wildly fire at our ship. Not once did anyone other than myself stay and try to defend the one turret after capping it, and often the team would split up and go their separate ways rather than mount a strong offensive.
A lot of the Jedi side were long range fighters who set up a good defense in the middle; I'd constantly see the same team members see that the middle is empty, run in to cap it only to get shot down almost instantly. This occurred numerous times, like my team never quite figured out why they were dying.
In every PvP match I've played, the Jedi side has always had strong tactics and good teamwork; I can't say the same for the Sith, which, in my experience, looks to be largely populated by younger players.
After a few matches, I was just doing it for the close to 10,000 exp I got just for participating.

I beat Cave Story. I don't know if it's just a case of PC gamers never experiencing Metroid and Castlevania, or just the fact that it's free, but I personally thought it was kind of a shitty game.
On to Wipeout HD, which I really adore. Also, who was complaining about rubberband AI in this game? I've won races where the competition was literally nowhere near me, and I generally don't get screwed over by cheesy weapon because the game actually warns you when they're coming. And when they do hit me, it never feels unbalanced. They aren't nearly as devastating as Mario Kart's weapons.

Oh God, Wipeout HD. I quite like how the game reminds me of F-Zero without the crazy car models it had. Tough races at over 400km/h in beautiful race tracks is ecstasy. Although, sometimes, I felt like it just need more speed to be truly a game that truly rivals F-Zero. Okay, now I really need a PS3 for Wipeout and fix my PC so it can run F-Zero GX on Dolphin.

Since we're also talking about console games here and there, I'm playing through Shadow Complex, which is...okay.. It's pretty good, actually, I just hate the setting and the utter blandness of it. The combat blows, too, with its wonky background aiming. The powerups, for the most part, aren't very imaginative at all. I'm probably 2/3 of the way through the game, and it's more or less Metroidvania-by-numbers. But since I love Metroid and Castlevania, I guess I'm okay with it.
On the PC side, I admit to whoring myself out for Steam's holiday achievements. EVEN THE FREE TO PLAY ONES. Rise of Immortals and Crimecraft have scarred me forever.

I suspect it has something to do with it being the /only/ Metroidvania style game on current-gen consoles. Metroid: Other M was the only other game that could have been a 2D successor, and from what I hear, it, er, wasn't. Castlevania has seen that one multiplayer XBLA game and Lord of Shadows, neither of which are exactly tied to the classic formula. Shadow Complex is kind of good by default.

I'm playing with AI War: Fleet Command and trying to:
1) Beat it in single player.
2) Actually play it multiplayer and see how that goes.

Opac's Journey" thing, and Outland might be worth your time. I actually bought ITSP the other day and meant to start it up but my 20 gig hard drive is all full up :/ I happened to love Shadow Planet; the actual map and powers were a lot of fun, at least to me, and it has some excellent boss fights. My only complaint about the game is, on the whole, it's a bit easy.
Myself, I plan on going back to good ol' Tomba! when I get the chance. Probably the most overlooked Metroidvania game ever.
Really, I'm still waiting for this style of game to evolve to 3D adventure games. I actually think that Demon's Souls might be the closest we've come.

Insecticide: Part One
A sadly unfinished game (at least on PC), with the second part supposed to be released three and a half years ago. Whilst it now looks a little dated, it's still quite a good looking game. Crisp and fairly clear. The controls are simplistic as hell, too, and they work... but it's not perfect. The combat feels a little sloppy and unbalanced, and the adventure sections are really not hard, more putting stuff in the right place (sounds obvious, but it's not as simple as it sounds). There's a good sense of humour though, with the bug related puns and stuff, and the weaponry is nicely diverse.
Could be a bit better, though, but for what it is? Awesome.

Battlefield 3 to pump me up, SimCity 4 to unpump me.
- I love canister shot.
- I really love canister shot.
- I love attack chopper pilots who buzz me at low altitude, stop, turn around and attempt to buzz me a second time. Why, thank you for the free shot! BOOMkchunkBOOM
- I love suicide jeeps that come at me head on. Oh, joy! BOOMkchunkBOOM
- Playing SimCity is like tending a garden, constant pruning and working, but without the zen reflections.

You found any good Rush/Conquest servers in Battlefield 3? Tried to get used to the Conquest mode in BC2 but that place was infested with hacks and base-rapes, it's practically unplayable.

Just finished The Book of Unwritten Tales which didn't end so much as stop. It's like if the good guys threw Sauron's ring into the ocean and said "whelp, that ought ta do it." Not only is is extremely anticlimactic, but it also fails to solve the overall problem - there's a badass evil which is tearing the land apart with or without the artefact. The characters inhabit a post-apocolyptic fantasy land where entire cities have only one or two residents each (they actually address this and offer "everyone else is dead" as an explanation). Talk about a hollow victory!

Like most people, I've been playing some of my Christmas purchases.
I bought a bunch of adventure games in the Gog sale, one of them being Broken Sword 2. I played the first game years ago and quite enjoyed it; hopefully it can satisfy my current adventure game craving.
I was intrigued enough to invest in Payday: The Heist when it was a daily Steam deal. As most have commented, it does owe a huge debt to Left 4 Dead; but it also feels different. The police come at you in waves, but combat occurs at a distance, meaning you have to take cover quite frequently, unlike when you're fighting zombies.
I'm still obsessed with Batman: Arkham City. I bought the discounted DLC and now I'm working my way through both Robin and Nightwing's Riddler challenges. The combat and stealth in this game are both absolutely superb.

I have beaten Binding of Isaac for the first time. After 16 hours. Well, the game is AWESOME! I am really glad I bought it because it is crazy fun and sometimes even frustrating. Probably game of the year for me :)

Been playing a bit of Nuclear Dawn with some friends, we picked it up for offer at Amazon one of these past days; it's an interesting blend of RTS and FPS, and while it's kinda rough around the edges, I have to say, the game makes me feel like I'm a soldier in the NOD or GDI, depending on which team I'm playing for. The game kinda feels like what a multiplayer C&C FPS should be.
P.S. I'm in (manly) love with your current avatar, Unrav.
