I'm experiencing the odd crash in Natural Selection 2. Hopefully the devs will issue a patch this week. Still enjoying the hell out of it though.
I'm about halfway through Alan Wake. I'm kind of disappointed that the gameplay is basically a 3rd person shooter, with the added gimmick that you have to wear down your enemies with a flashlight before you kill them. I feel like they could have done something more interesting with the light/dark mechanics rather that just adding guns to the mix.
The atmosphere and setting are great though, and that's probably why I'm going to press on and finish it.
The deniable ops missions are great fun, and very replayable.

I decided to surprise myself and played a couple hours of Rochard. The first story cutscene (when you finally reach Skyler) was cringeworthy. I might have to eat those words about enjoying it more than I had expected...

State of the game:
I've been trying to be peaceful.
My wars with Carthage, Numidia and Thrace all ended at the same time with the death of their factions. I was besieging Selucid Halicarnassus as there were few troops in there, no nearby Selucid regions (their only other one was in Mesopotamia) and I wanted a foothold on Anatolia.
There was the odd skirmish with Dacia but a truce was in place, ended only when the damn Senate demanded I blockaded a port then renewed shortly after (Senate have gotten to the asshole stage where completed missions are no longer rewarded but failed/ignored missions involve punishments).
But it seems Halicarnassus is on the Pontic wishlist, as the fuckers just declared war and besieged it. This is annoying for two reasons:
1. They control all of Asia Minor so beating them is going to take a lot of time and resources
2. I was gearing up for a move on Rome: SPQR, Julii and Brutii; to stop the Senate shit and ensure I wouldn't have to go against late-game Romans at all.
Luckily the second point means I have several armies only a few turns away from the fight. And honestly this is going to make things pretty interesting, which is great. It's just, why couldn't Pontus have pulled this shit 5 turns ago? When I may not have held Halicarnassus but instead had a full stack of troops on Anatolia all ready to declare war on them first, before I came up with Operation Fuck SPQR..

Just put 28 hours in to Mount & Blade: Warband in 4 days. Awesome at the start, but I found it plateau's quite quickly and just gets tedious. Going to give Prophecy of Pendor a go!

After Casimir's Rome teasing and stumbling across Fumarole's awesome AAR, it's only a matter of time before I have a relapse. I'm probably going for Rome with Darthmod, like Casimir, since I've never tried Darthmod and haven't played Rome in a long time.
However, I have two questions:
1) Is it easy modding Rome on Steam?
2) How come one side's kills in a battle are pretty much always less than the other side's losses? Friendly fire? Desertions? Auto-dismissing of remaining pieces of shattered units? Is there an official explanation?

I'm currently replaying Starlancer, as I just got my CH joystick, throttle, and pedals in preparation for the two year wait of Star Citizen.

I'm not really playing anything. I want a game that has that 'one more turn' feel of XCOM and Total War, but I don't really know where to go next. I was thinking Civ IV: Colonization, or maybe SINS (not turned based but I can imagine the same conquering feel would be nice).

2) I think a lot of it is friendly fire, especially if you have a decent amount of archers in a unit. Then there's the 'Casualties Healed' amounts after a battle which may interfere with the kills/losses numbers; I saw a unit heal 90 people just yesterday.

EDIT: GMG has the same deal, but with Steam codes. Though, weirdly, they have Dynasty Shields II at regular price.

Wow! Raptr says I've played Assassin's Creed 3 for 58 Hours and I've only completed 32% of it. This'll be a 150-200 hour affair for me I bet.

I read somwhere that for completing 100% game in morrowind you needed about 900-1000 hours,is that true ?
Longest time i put in to an rpg was 67 hours (Gothic 2).
