Started up Dwarf Fortress for the 3rd time this past week and actually made some progress (after having embarked, looking at the main menu and going NOPE). I started looking around for similar titles and stumbled on Gnomoria, which is shaping up to be a ridiculously amazing DF-alike with a mouse-based interface and isometric eyecandy. I am super addicted.

You might be right about the quicksave, though. My sister was playing the game a few months ago and I think I remember hearing the 'ding' sound of saving pretty often.
Edit: Now I remember. You can save any time you like, but loading the game will put you right back in the most recently visited town. Your progress is saved, but your location isn't.

Currently playing through The Witcher. Just arrived at the second chapter and killed the cockatrice together with the paladin. The second chapter seems even more interesting than chapter 1. Sure, this game is quirky but it is actually quite good!
Also picked up Gratuitous Space Battles this weekend. I really like it so far, but it would have been fun to have the AI use your designs, just as I've heard it does in Gratuitous Tank Battles...

Finished Witcher 2 EE playthrough, nice bit of extra content at the end there and it's fantastic that I can be playing it for the third time and still be doing markedly different things. Shame the spectacle fights (eg. those against big beasties like the Kayran) are not very well done due to hitboxes or bossfight rules; especially seeing as the parts where you're given a tonne of human/humanoid enemies to fight are a lot more fun, especially towards the end once your skill trees are more fleshed out.
Still love the game though. There are few better. Can't wait for the next one

Finished Dreamfall. It did feel oddly short. Also, that was one catastrophic no-ending that really answered just about no question. It's one thing to leave some mysteries unsolved but they kind of crossed a line here. I don't think a single character's fate is resolved by the end. Well, except for Faith and Brynn. Maybe.
Then there's all the dangling plot lines as well...
Yeah, I'm kinda miffed about this. Very disappointing.

New Vegas is magnificent. I feel like i can really plot my own course, make shit happen, and it feels organic and big and involved. So much opportunity to craft your own way forward, and so much mechanics wise to support that in terms of narrative as well. There's a ton of exposition and lore but it's also crafted in such a way to leave space fot all that to evolve of it's own.
Good example-I was running away from the Legion Assassins to find shelter in Vegas-Benny was very much secondary now to the fact that I had been hunted daily ever since Nipton by a mob of very dangerous enemies- thought I'd try and get in with either the Kings or the Van Graffs for protection.
Was asked by the VG's to deliver something to a mysterious man, who I suspected was Legion, so I shot him. A thing popped up saying "Quest failed etc" but I thought I would go back and see what would happen becuase that's usally how you get extrea content in RPG's.
I was expecting trouble because I failed the quest, but Gloria asked me how it went, I lied and said good, and that was that. I got paid and aksed if I wanted in on the next thing. Which makes perfect sense. No-one else was there to know what happened, so she had no reason or ability to know what I'd done. I asked her about who it was for and she didn't tell but said something vague, so now I'm even more convinced it was for Caesar, but hey, I don't know, maybe it will turn around and bite me in the ass.
But out of that simple little quest tree I can either continue to work with Graffs, carry on and do no more, or decide to go after them on the Legion pretext. I could have potentially pissed off someone who isn't the Legion as well, I just don't know. But all those concluions are plausible and they're all due to some economic and clever plotting. Most other games would have been initially up front with consequences and identity as soon as I inquired into it, just as an avenue to XP before moving onto something else, but the way it's done it keeps everything moving even once the XP gaining bit is over and helps to create a rich context that surrounds what's going on besides your main quest line. Really good stuff.

On another note, five hours in Deus Ex and lots of progress. Finally went back to New York for the Illuminati bullcrap after blowing up the UC (and Maggie Chow with a GEP gun) in Hong Kong and killed the 'reporter'. Man, my head hurts...

Plus, the game is eight years old, so I don't know where you'd find another friend playing it at the same time.
Also Dungeon Siege is the best and you should play it even though it's a bit old, DSII is all right but takes away a great musical score, an interesting skill mechanic and exploring but still a fun game. Stay clear from Dungeon Siege III and Space Siege.

Finished Hitman: Absolution and it left behind a slightly disappointed feeling, 47 felt a bit OOC at times... moving on to the new Chrysis which looks fantastic... and playing the beta of Legends of Aethereus.

Also playing Rayman 3. It's okay, but I'm not enjoying it nearly enough as Rayman 2.

Rayman 2 has a very special place in my heart. I don't know why but I dearly love the game.
Probably because it was one of my favourite games on the Dreamcast and I bought and played it again on the PC. Its just a good game that rewards me with a happy, fuzzy feeling.
Meanwhile, in KotoR the Sith base on Manaan is utterly ruining me; i'd forgotten how hard the game actually is on hard difficulty. The three dark jedi destroy me always and the master? Oh gawd. Decided to reload a save prior to entering the base and building my cash reserves so went and won the Swoop tracks on both Manaan and Tatooine. Gonna go back to Manaan after a bit of levelling up and getting HK-47. >:D

Finally checking out the original Crysis. Loving it so far, although I wish it were a bit easier to shortcut between the nanosuit powers. Since I'm in quite the shooty-shoot-shoot mood, I'll probably keep playing through Warhead and then Crysis 2 in anticipation of the third one.
On another note, I'm long heard about how this game required a monster machine to run. I am able to max it out with a Geforce 670, which isn't that impressive, but then I remembered it came out in 2007. Yeah, it must've taken a beast of a machine at that time to truly show it off.

Dungeon Siege 3 is a great game for those who aren't nostalgia blinded by DS 1 and 2. It actually requres you to play it, rather than being a glorified screen saver like the first was* or a monument to mediocrity like the second.
*I still enjoyed the first game but it dragged on too long and barely ever needed input beyond "click your people to move forward". Seamless world engine was incredible at the time though, and I look forward to buying the game on GOG one day.
