    Skyrim. 74 hours since I got it seven days ago according to Steam, all with the same character and I suspect I haven't finished more than at most 20% of the game (haven't joined the Dark Brotherhood or the Thieves Guild or finished the Companion questline, for one thing).
    Rather nice game and it runs pretty well on my laptop, much to my surprise.

    I can only affirm that the German voice-cast for Drakensang is actually outstanding for a change. ;)

    Now you know what we Germans suffer through whenever we get one of your games dubbed!

    That's what I heard on the dtp forums, but you can't get the game's voice in German unless you take the sound files from a German edition. Yay...

    The German audiofolder is around 860 Megabytes... if you have a FTP hidden away somewhere, PM me and I'll attempt to upload it the next time I have time to do so.

    Got a copy of Soul Calibur V, so it's been that. Getting beaten up and beating up online so far.

    This leads onto a concept/thing I've been meaning to ask about for a while. Is there a way to get the extra language subtitle options in games without having to do anything too weird? This question mainly concerns games which are fully-voiced RPGs so I can have the English language track playing but then some French/German/Spanish/etc subtitles when in conversations.

    As an example I'm currently playing Dragon Age 2 (currently on hiatus due to dead HDD) and would love to be able to have some French subtitles being a counterpoint to the English voices. Why? To see if it has any effect on my foreign language ability, which is something I'm always looking to improve.
    I suspect what I'm asking isn't possible because of publishers not wanting people in some regions/countries playing the games from others, which having all the subtitles could facilitate, as they do enjoy putting a penis in my ideas.

    On topic: Dragon Age 2 is a lot of fun. It definitely doesn't deserve all the hate it gets seeing as the combat is very similar the the original, just sped up a bit, and the gameplay is very similar.
    There are places where it is worse, for example: repetitive environments, spawning enemies, dull loot system and some of the characters are just too... obsequiously written for the fans if you know what I mean.
    But in other ways it is, to me, better: generally better level design, no Bioware hub-with-3-or-4-directions mechanic, character-centric story is more appealing, better ability system, voiced protagonist and little UI/gameplay tweaks (it is now far easier & quicker to re-equip the whole party, no having to jump in and out of camp which could sometimes progress certain events far too rapidly).

    I could be wrong here, but I *think* TRoT only ships in one language per region. German is in, well, German, BeNeLux regions are in English, US is English, Italian is Italian and (if my memory is right) Spanish is Spanish. If there is a Spanish one, that is. There isn't an English release, funnily enough.

    You might be able to get the audio files from those games and mix-and-match, but I wouldn't really know how or if it's possible, sorry :(

    I would imagine it's the same, it does feel a tiny bit imbalanced in places but not enough to spoil any enjoyment.

    I have however come across a nice bug yesterday that may require me to start the entire necro zone again as I can't seem to access a boss fight after mucking it up the first time. This has severely dampened my will to play it for a bit (that and I find the undead armies somewhat underwhelming).

    Finished SP&Z, ended more with a whimper than a grand hurrah but I cant really fault it, it was probably the right ending for most people who had barely given their ships orders up until that point.

    Uninstalling it so it doesn't tempt me back too easily, but its certainly one I'll return to once they add more content.

    Hmm... it's just that some of the early fights in the DS version (forest and city) seemed to be ridiculously hard for how early they were, and it annoyed me so much that I stopped playing. Well, I'll probably just continue to wait for a decent sale price, then. Thanks!

    There's a few fights you're better off coming back to after a couple of screens, if you notice the enemy has all level 5 troops vs your level 2, then go fight some other dudes first. Maybe that's become part of how my brain sees encounters from other heroes/kings bounty games lately, you can't necessarily take on everything close to you from the start. There's not been any insane fights that were required at the time.

    About 6 hours in playing The Dark Spire. Running through the dungeon with just one Priest with the others dead, trying to get out while dragging their corpses alone was probably the hardest thing I've done in a DS game. Perservered, revived my party members in the temple one-by-one, and finally conquered the first floor of the Tower/Spire. Now, I'm killing Grave Robbers in the Basement. They're actually tougher than they look.

    OTT, I always hated to save that Stalker at the Garbage. Not that I hated him, he tends to die almost every time I shot and killed one of the bandits. Spent 6 or so tries to actually save him.

    Can you let me know the file names of the audio folder in the game directory? If they're the same as mine, mix and match should be no big problem by just overwriting the EN audio folder with my German one.

    With SP&Z filed away under P for "Put a fork in it, because it's done" I need to choose my next game to focus on. Deus Ex: Hilarious Radiation is a candidate but I'm almost ashamed to admit that boss fights you have to brawl with are required. In the original Deus Ex I didn't do boss fights, I either murdered the boss after a reload or laid a trap with plentiful explosives.

    The Saboteur is my other thought, seamlessly swapping between pad and m&kb means a can drive the satisfyingly rickety cars with a pad and shoot with a mouse. It's WW2 GTA but it's still fun, not dry and not yet repetitive.

    Also installed/close to hand is LA Noire, Crysis Warhead (with Crysis 2 waiting on origin), Liberty City: Episodes, 100% my Mass Effect 2 save in anticipation for ME3.

    Ah to be less backlogged.

    I'm not particularly bothered about doing it, myself.

    Dead Island. It's a horrible game, repetitve as hell, the rpg and open world parts were obviously tacked on in the last minute and the the story and narration are cringe worthy but I still managed to clock in a good 20 hours so far and I don't see myself putting it away any time soon.

    Also, I must have bought DoW2:Retribution at some point, because I found it sitting in my steam list last night. Eventhough I can recognize that DoW2 is a good game, it never really clicked with me, the only reason why I played it at all for any length of time is the WH40K background. But I didn't like the Blood Ravens, so I couldn't be bothered to finish either the original nor Chaos Rising.


    Anyway, I enjoyed the four or five missions I played with the Imperial Guard yesterday, though much of that enjoyment came from the simple fact that I was commanding Space Wehrmacht Soldaten talking with a posh british accent. "Drive me closer, I want to hit them with my sword!"

    Apart from that I'm (always) playing Puzzle Quest on my phone of eyes. Stupid, pointless game, can't stop playing it.

    So, I finally installed GalCiv2: Ultimate Edition, and gave it a spin in the early evening yesterday as a study break. Seriously, next thing I knew, it was 3 in the morning, and I had to be up at 6.

    This game is crack. One more turn is an understatement. I can't believe I haven't played it before now.

    Installed Arkham City and promptly found that the sound's not working properly on it. ¬_¬

    And seemingly the problem has yet to be patched, which is ace.
