I can't play Skyrim as a survival simulator the way I can and do play NV. I think apart from the setting it comes down to the leveling system in Skyrim. Since there's no xp, there's nothing to scratch at that itch to be rewarded with items or power. You complete a quest in Skyrim, you maybe get some gold or an item of mostly insignificant power. You complete a quest in NV, you get a lovely little xp boost and maybe some items.
NV in my opinion is better than Skyrim.

The Witcher 2 is amazing, such a huge step up from the 1st and one of the best RPGs I played in the last few years. I gave up on Skyrim after a few hours.
Out of curiosity, what didn't you like about it?

Got Assassins Creed over the weekend in the saley thing, mainly to see what I was missing by mostly ignoring the franchise.
Not bad, though the cutscenes are very mid 2000s "We wanna be films too", albeit giving me the ability to make my character spin in circles when people are having serious discussions.
But GODDAMN! LET ME QUIT THE GAME EASILY! I want to quit the game! Ok leave the animus thing, then quit? NO! Quit, NO! WHY AM I SELECTING MY PROFILE TO QUIT??? *angry sounds*

EDIT: Should be apparent from this that I meant to respond to the same post you did rather than your own. World, witness my shame.

Woohokay. Started XCOM. God, where the fuck were my tictacs? I got Napoleon and Mordekaiser wounded and they almost took Combo's head off. Fuck, I'm getting rusty. But on the bright side, Mordekaiser got Psi-promoted for mind controlling *cue Dr. Evil laugh*
It seems the only way to build and get additional Firestorms to the other continents is to transfer them after dismissing a few Interceptors. This bug's weird.

Found myself curiously between games this last weekend, having successfully set aside my planetside addiction and wrapping up both Farcry 3 and the Imperial Agent story line in SWTOR. There's always the endless pile™ of old things to still install or new stuff to actually click on and play once things get patched up (Sim City / Tomb Raider) but those dusty old Mass Effect icons were just staring at me from their EA/Bioware folder.
I still haven't played the Omega or the Citadel DLC's, and have only played two of my three "legacy" characters from the prior two games to their bitter multicolored fruition in ME3. I could also try the latest Skyrim DLC's as well, but then a stroke of coincidence arrived in the form of this video and its related mod post on the game forum:
No idea if this has been posted on in RPS yet ( I did a couple cursory searches and came up dry ), but here's the Link and trailer for it.
"The Mass Effect Happy Ending Mod"
The promise of a new completely edited extended cut ending with tons of glowing praise from the community was enough to prod me to install it and import that last legacy Shepard for her journey to save earth (and the galaxy)!All times I have enjoyed greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those that loved me, and alone.

Nobody's talking about NS2. Did it reach the expectations set by the hype? What shape is the game in now?

So if you are okay with playing with assholes and/or are willing to put the time in to find private servers/a gaming group, it is wonderful. If not, pass.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Played a couple of hours of PoP Sands of Time last night. I'm enjoying it, but not as much as all the praise it's gotten would seem to imply. Maybe it just hasn't aged well. The controls are a little cludgy.

All the "new school" TES and Fallout games have given me hundreds of hours of fun, yet I barely pay attention to the story in any of them. I mostly enjoy exploring, looting, combat and progressively building a stronger character. Sort of like a single player MMO. I used to play EVE Online in a similar way, several years ago.
I expect the Witcher 2's strength is its story. I found the combat a bit tedious (especially early on; that amounted to roll, hit dumb AI from the side, rinse and repeat) and felt that invisible walls kept funnelling me away from the exploration I'd rather be doing. The game wants to deliver an experience that doesn't appeal to me. I think our love was destined to fail.
On the flip side, with that expectation I can see how Skyrim would disappoint. The story is utter pants.

Performance is an issue for some people, but there was a patch today aimed at fixing some of those problems.
I disagree with gundato about the state of the community. You get unpleasant people in all online communities sure, but by and large NS2 has a very nice playerbase.
By the way, there's a bunch of RPSers playing NS2 every week! We're over in the social forum.

Anyhow, when I push up on the left stick the prince skitters along like when you tap a direction repeatedly and makes third person characters "ice skate" with their animations. At first I thought it was my old pad, but I got the same problem with a 360 pad after buying it again. I may end up using Xpadder or Joy2Key etc... but PoP aint high enough on my playlist agenda atm.

That's odd. I'll play around with it later on, my pad has both Directinput and Xinput support so maybe I'll get lucky.
Coincidentally, the reason I got this series on PS3 when I already owned the first game on GOG is because I am spoiled by Xinput and don't want to deal with control issues for early games. Setting up San Andreas was a proper pain in the ass. Looks like it was a good call in this situation.
