RPS Asks: What To Play This Weekend?


There’s almost too much to play! I probably should be hammering noobs on the Battlefield 3 beta, but it really could be anything. Hell, I have that epic game of Supreme Commander to get done, new Minecraft to explore, Dead Island to continue, Stalker mods to work on, and some secret things to preview. But what do you think I should play? What are you going to play? Suggest me do!

And yes, I probably will just end up being paralysed by choice and end up laying down in the sun…

    Psychonauts!

    • Jim Rossignol says:

      It certainly crossed my mind, so to speak.

    • SMiD says:

      Seconded! Downloading now. But while I wait for that, I’ll be off in Durlag’s Tower in BG1 trying to make it to the bottom. Feckin’ traps.

    • AmateurScience says:

      I have just restarted Baldur’s Gate from the beginning for no reason!

      Bye bye PhD!

    • LionsPhil says:

      Temping to once again try to get somewhere with that. (That being Baldur’s.)

      Or Planescape Torment, the surprisingly unengaging game that I should in theory absolutely love. Weak start, perhaps.

      Or Fallout 2, if I can even remember what the hell I was doing in it. I knew I finally had the blasted car and had completed most of the top of the map…

    • Hexidecimal says:

      Agree! That’s my plan for this weekend!

    • cristhianfs says:

      Does anyone know if they’re updating just the Steam version or the GOG one as well?

    • RoteByrd says:

      Yes! to psychonauts also Planescape: Torment is a little slow at the beginning, I would give yourself some time to simply meet and talk to the various characters in the game.

    • IchigoRXC says:

      Well Planescape has this weekend wrapped up I reckon, followed by The Binding of Isaac, while I download mods for a MegaMod Installation of Baldurs Gate: The Big World Project.

    • FriendlyFire says:

      I’ve downloaded Dungeon Keeper 2, Ground Control 1 and 2 and Empire Earth, so probably that and some Minecraft on the side.

      <3 GOG.com

  2. Choca says:

    Probably going to try the free to play City of Heroes thingy. Haven’t played the game for a while, should be fun.

    • Jim Rossignol says:

      Ah yes, me too. I think I lost my old account details though. Time for some serious login archaeology.

    • Choca says:

      I hate when that happens, especially since I have about ten thousands different logins, e-mail adresses and passwords.

    • oceanclub says:

      I hadn’t realised it was gone FTP already – must jump in and give it a go as it was once my favourite MMO. If any of us do stick it out, perhaps we could set up a RPS guild (does it even _have_ guilds? I can’t remember…)

      P.

    • Temple says:

      CoH has Supergroups silly. Free players cannot join them, old players with sufficient vet rewards can (about 33 months playing time) and, obviously, subscibers :)
      You can still team up and do missions together.
      Free players are limited in chat options as well (to stop gold spammers), but if you add someone to friends you can chat with them. Global chat name or character chat name I think.

      I’m giving it a go with the whole two characters you can create on a Free account. I’ll find my old account if it looks like I want to get back into it.

      Vague thread over on the forums, we seem to have settled on Union server. It is typically the busier of the two old British servers (all are in America now though and you can join any you fancy)
      link to rockpapershotgun.com

      Got to say the respawn of mobs seems way too high compared to what I remember -I wonder if it is because of more players. I do a street mission and as phone my contact I get jumped by the same team I just put down. Any I’m off to create a villain.
      Global name is @Zapster1 if any RPSers want a hand starting out (and by that I mean advice I haz no money)

  3. Doth Messar says:

    I would say Assault Squad, but since it wasn’t one of the choices, I say Stalker Mods. Do a journal of surviving in the modded zone. I always enjoy RPS journals. It’s like playing without spending all the time and effort!

    I however am going to spend most my weekend losing to Russians in MOW: AS matches. Perhaps if I get bored of being ground to dust by IS-3’s, I’ll play some nice Star Wars: Rebellion (Supremacy).

    • sgt. grumbles says:

      Ah, good choice. I’ve been enjoying MOW:AS duels with a friend lately. The co-op campaign was a let down, but the multiplayer is good fun.

      Non sequitur: in the article pic, it looks like the woman is about to dole out a vicious paddling on that dapper gentleman… and it appears he enjoys it. Then there’s the curious guy in the back, who looks like he just finished deucing out that tennis ball beneath him. All in all, an amazing drawing.

  4. sinister agent says:

    I am going to play an obscure indie game called Painkillers ‘n Booze, followed by a game of darts with my dentist. Single player.

    • Temple says:

      Meh, they nerfed the dentist drill.

      I’m going to play ‘dear surgeon why is this thread sticking out of my side, did you leave something in there?’ tomorrow. It’s a new game I haven’t tried before.

    • squareking says:

      @Temple: Oh god, flashbacks to my post-appendectomy this past March. Was poking around my belly and noticed this little line of plastic sticking out of my skin. Pulled on it a little and felt a gentle tug somewhere on my muscle wall. It was one of those moments in life where I paused and just considered throwing up.

  5. Lewie Procter says:

    I think the binding of isaac has me for the immediate future.

    • Tusque D'Ivoire says:

      This, mostly. However, if I feel the need to exercise further punishment upon ethically questionable decisions, I will most likely find myself playing some Company of Heroes, which i acquired in its most recent sale. Also, after that, Men of War.

    • Premium User Badge

      MarvinPA says:

      Binding of Isaac for me as well, definitely. Been playing it lots since release and I feel like there’s still loads more to see and unlock. And possibly I’ll give Frozen Synapse a go, too.

    • Buttless Boy says:

      This, a thousand times this.

      Two thousand times if the damn game stops deleting my data.

    • Aquamarine Jesus says:

      I plan on getting the binding of Isaac, and I will no doubt also get a healthy dose of League of Legends.

      Saturday afternoon will be spent in a pub playing Ascension and Small World. Just bought Ascension, so really looking forward to trying to out.

  6. Dariune says:

    Well im still playing the POP Mod for Mount & Blade Warband.

    Ive not really liked many of the games which came out recently. Deus Ex 3 was ok. Other than that i would play the New Witcher2 DLC stuff. Im gonna do that soon :)

    Or maybe go outside and enjoy the sun? We never know when we might see it again.

  7. Jams O'Donnell says:

    DXHR, first time through. Hopefully.

  8. djbriandamage says:

    I recommend doing what I did – buy a nice joystick (I got the Thrustmaster T.16000) and spend all weekend playing Wing Commander and Flight Simulator X. Master the thrust!

    • Tams80 says:

      Hmmm, that or Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Joystick or a Logitech.

      I would like thrust control…

    • AmateurScience says:

      Just finished wing commander and WC2. First time I’ve played them since my Dad’s 486. They held up a LOT better than I expected them to!

      Will be embarking on the third installment soon – never played that one so totally open minded.

    • LionsPhil says:

      Descent is still really good after all these years too, and that’s not nostalgia talking—playing it first-time after catching it in a GoG sale recently, having missed it back in the day.

    • djbriandamage says:

      GOG’s edition of Wing Commander 3 runs brilliantly despite its ambitious 3D engine and full motion video. The acting is even better than I remembered. You won’t be disappointed.

      Well, unless you want to use throttle control on a joystick in WC3. Then you’ll be disappointed. I can’t get it to work, even in the game’s “Thrustmaster” mode. A minor quibble, though.

  9. caprisundad says:

    Deus Ex 1, Limbo, and Bastion.

  10. Claudius says:

    Anyone here play Game of Thrones Genesis yet? Was thinking of picking it up this weekend but wanted to see some reviews first.

    • p4warrior says:

      Wrote up some early thoughts for a site. It’s very involved. Not much fighting, more espionage and careful diplomacy than large scale battles. It is pretty fun, but expect to spend a lot of time with the manuals, and don’t be afraid to use the pause button.

      I will say it’s the first game I’ve played that has “Bastard” as a playable unit. So that’s something.

  11. Scatterbrainpaul says:

    Lots of my non pc playing friends have been posting about Fifa 12 all day on Facebook. I take it that it came out today. Might be worth a look

    • Inglourious Badger says:

      (spoken with shameful look) I purchased that particular foot-to-ball title myself today. Being the first year in ages that we’ve had the same game the consoles have i thought it was time to get stuck in again.

      So ill playing that and the bf3 beta. EA should start sponsoring me

    • Jad says:

      Exactly same thing for me, Inglourious Badger.

      Two days ago I remembered that the copy of Medal of Honor that I picked up for cheap a couple of months ago was still a “Limited Edition” copy and therefore I could get into the BF3 beta early. Then last night I semi-impulse purchased FIFA 12 off of Origin, which sound like EA’s tie-games-to-a-storefront plan is working.

      I would undoubtedly have bought FIFA 12 eventually anyway. I am an American who has virtually no interest in soccer as a sport, and in fact I hadn’t played any sports videogames since childhood before I picked up FIFA 11 earlier this year for a few bucks (awkward shill mode: EA does good sales). I found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable action game with some light RPG and management aspects, and most importantly of all, it is a great same-room multiplayer game, which is rare for the PC. I have one friend, whenever we hang out, somehow we end up in my apartment at the end of the night drunkenly playing FIFA. So he would have made me buy FIFA 12 at some point.

      Dunno about my opinions on the whole annual sports thing yet, as I got FIFA 11 for $15 and the PC version of FIFA 12 is only $40, and currently I’m happy with my purchase.

  12. MerseyMal says:

    Definitely Dead Island and BF3 Beta, but also Guild Wars to get the juices flowing for its sequel’s release next year.

  13. codename_bloodfist says:

    Stabby-stabby Vindictus! *glee*

    • Film11 says:

      Same here. It has become quite endearing to me, the volume of content seems immense.

  14. xotobacco says:

    Binding of Isaac. So addicting.

    • matty_gibbon says:

      GAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

    • Megadyptes says:

      Addicting sounds stupid and pretentious, just use addictive.

    • Premium User Badge

      Skabooga says:

      @Megadypes (and Matty_Gibson?): Further explain this addicting/addictive problem that you perceive. I lack a full understanding of this issue and would like to hear you elaborate on it.

  15. Scatterbrainpaul says:

    I shall be playing Alpha Protocol – £1.50 from steam sale, and Tropico 4 – £1 from on live.

    Maybe the best £2.50 i’ve ever spent in my life

    • Choca says:

      Alpha Protocol is good fun. The game is definitely messed up in so many ways, but still really enjoyable.

    • Jesse L says:

      Me too. I haven’t run into any buggy parts yet, but it’s still early. I just started my first real mission and I feel like a spy, what with all the talking and influencing and trying to figure my handlers out. And growing a JOLLY GREAT BEARD. It is gorgeous, and great for disguise. No one will ever recognize me behind that thing.

      The mouse is really juddery, though. Apparently there are .ini fixes for that, which I shall try as soon as I get home. Also, for the first time ever, I wish I had a ‘walk’ button. I feel silly jogging all around my own safehouse.

      What I won’t be playing is the Battlefield beta, or at least the Metro level of the beta. Found it very yawn. Crouching in bushes and getting shot in the back – boring! Vehicles please.

      This is all just so much faff, though, as I’m preparing for my Tuesday release-day delivery of Dark Souls. Eat your hearts out, PC-only gamers! This is one you would clasp to your bosoms if only you could.

    • zind says:

      Yay Alpha Protocol!

      I honestly never found very many bugs in the game, and the only irritating thing for me was the hacking minigame, but even that wasn’t so bad since my mouse had on-the-fly DPI switching.

      I did stealth and pistols primarily (started as ‘recruit’ so I started with almost nothing in the way of skills) and ended up feeling pretty overpowered by the end of it.

      I’ve been toying around with the idea of loading it up and playing again and befriending different people, but something tells me that if I want to play a game like that I should just go ahead and buy DXHR.

    • LionsPhil says:

      Apparently the way you walk in Alpha Protocol is to push your analogue stick only halfway.

      No, there is no way to do this on the keyboard. I decided that even for £2 I was falling into “not worth the time and interest invested only for it to then fall apart” territory.

  16. grundus says:

    Play Marathon. I wish I could play Marathon. I’m going to look into how I can play Marathon.

    Well that was easy.

    • Thants says:

      Boom!

    • grundus says:

      Thanks, Thants… Thanants? I googled something while writing the comments and found that very link, played it for a little while and got a little scared about the fact you can’t save whenever you want, last time I played that game (OS 8.6 on a beige Macintosh Performa 640, at age… I dunno, 11? Total guess) I didn’t even know how to save so it didn’t bother me. Just knowing I ‘have’ all three Marathon games is enough, though, I don’t know why I didn’t look for them sooner.

    • Thants says:

      Don’t be afraid of the save terminals. Let them guide you into a wonderful world of old-school bliss. Soon, you’ll learn to go two, even three minutes at a time without saving.

      (Oh, and the Rubicon mod is a great continuation of the game)

    • field_studies says:

      “Thanks, Thants… Thanants?”

      Taking this way off topic (but you started it), has the Look Around You team go on to do anything else after that second season? Boy, that was brilliant stuff.

    • Thants says:

      Not together, as far as I know. The people involved have each been doing their own things but nothing like Look Around You, sadly.

  17. Alexander Norris says:

    Dead Island was pretty fun.

    But also, the answer is obviously Psychonauts. Or ArmA2 with ARPS on Saturday/ARPS+folk on Sunday.

  18. Tom4J says:

    Just played Stanley parable so i may look into more mods. Also its October so time to break out Amnesia!

    • db1331 says:

      I’ll be picking up Amnesia for $5 in the inevitable Halloween sale. I plan on playing it in the dark with my headphones on and hating myself for getting it.

    • Tom4J says:

      I did that with penumbra, i don’e see why this shall be any different. My halloween line up is amensia, Insanitarium and Trauma, maybe VtM:bloodlines again, and if it snows I have cryostasis sitting on my desktop, although if todays weather is anything to go by… not so much.

  19. Lord Custard Smingleigh says:

    The sun causes radiation burns. You’re far safer to lay out somewhere cool and dark.

  20. airtekh says:

    I’ll be tucking into heaps of Team Fortress 2, with a side of Fallout 3.

    • eclipse mattaru says:

      It’s dangerous to go alone! Take these.

    • db1331 says:

      Wow, that Wanderer mod sounds AMAZING. I love the idea of having to worry about food, clean water, and scavenging gas for a motorcycle in order to fast travel. I’m going to have to check that out.

  21. fitzroy_doll says:

    For god’s sake, if there’s any weekend to forgo the PC and get outside it’s this one. After the summer we’ve had, you owe it to your levels of vitamin D to drink beer in the sun.

    • cliffski says:

      what is this ‘outside’ of which you speak? is it a myth, like dryland?

    • The Tupper says:

      BURN THE WITCH!

      Also, here in Scotland it’s pissing down. Of course.

    • Milky1985 says:

      Outside is rubbish! Tried it before and it was like a 3d TV, unless I’m wearing glasses its just all blury and hard to see!

  22. oatmeal says:

    I’ll try my best to not play anything at all. Instead I should spend my time reading, writing and drawing.

    • sneetch says:

      And I’m going to spend it running around outside with a hoop-and-stick[tm]!

  23. evilbobthebob says:

    Finally finish The Witcher 2 (because I suck at the combat and the infinite blocking is now in with v2.0)

    Practice TF2 for a community Highlander match on a private server I frequent

    • db1331 says:

      That’s a good idea. I might finish up my 2nd trip through the game (I’m probably halfway through chapter 2 on Roche’s side) so I can start a 3rd in that fancy new dark mode.

  24. Meedoc says:

    OIO ( link to bit.ly ) released last week by a little French studio. This game deserves to be known =)

  25. Hef says:

    Why not Stellar Impact ??

  26. Ham Solo says:

    Driver SF…

    • The Tupper says:

      Any idea if a PC demo of Driver was ever released? I’ve not been keeping up with events.

  27. Srethron says:

    I should try to finish Thief, but I think I’m going to end up going back to trying to get farther in Terror From the Deep. I’m already pretty far. (Deciding to beat it on hardest difficulty was a big mistake. Still… Must. Press. On.)

    • sinister agent says:

      Apologies if you know this already, but just in case, to save you immense frustration, there is a guide at the following link to avoiding the game-ruining bugs in TFTD’s research tree:

      link to ufopaedia.org

      It’s a little spoiler-y, but there are a few things you must not do, or the game becomes unwinnable and you end up stuck in an endless chain of grinding ufo and terror sites. If you haven’t already, I’d recommend reading even if it means some spoilers. It’s better than breaking your game.

    • Srethron says:

      Thanks! I knew about some of these but not the mind control one. Hopefully I didn’t bork that up. I’ve got all the armor and most of the ships already, and fortunately have not researched the alien type that messes everything up. However, I’m not in good shape for the endgame. The aliens are constructing bases and artifact sites left and right, and I’m desperately recruiting more and more soldiers to keep up, and failing. Hoping to eventually put the best of the best on the final mission(TM) for the final push to save humanity from Not Cthulhu. But man, is it looking more and more like a losing battle.

  28. Ricc says:

    Going to play some League of Legends. The new game mode (Dominion) is probably the first hint at innovation in the “MOBA” genre. It’s pretty fun, but nonetheless not going to replace the base game for me, because that is (still) also pretty fun. :)

    Dominion might be a good starting point to get into that particular addiction, because it’s not as rigid as the Classic LoL. I think you could just hop in and have some fun with it.

    Other than that, BF3 beta and The Witcher 2 2.0! Going through chapter 3 now and my savegame has luckily not become incompatible. (I feared the worst… ^^)

  29. Morgu says:

    I’ll be playing Jade Cocoon for the PSX

  30. Voight-kampff says:

    Well, you still haven’t posted the long awaited “wot i think” on Men of War: Vietnam, which I’m really looking forward to..

    • felisc says:

      Didn’t sir Rossignol already post a wit ? something vaguely pointing to the fact that “you’re too hard, you whore of a game” ?

  31. actionthom says:

    League of Legends! Just got really into it in the past couple of weeks. Some of the heroes are hilarious!

  32. Nallen says:

    Battlefield 3 Beta :)

    And Starcraft, always Starcraft.

  33. gabapenteado says:

    Why can’t i stop playing Starcraft 2?

    I blame blizzard for my future self expending 6 months in a darkened room trying to catch up with future-old-now-present titles

  34. zind says:

    Minecraft at first; I’ve got some work to do on the dev server for a big event we’re holding for a community I’m a part of.

    Then some Magic, with real cards, since the Innistrad launch party is this weekend.

    Then some pen-and-paper d&d, because I still roll that way.

    Aaand in between all that I’ll hopefully be finishing up Dark Messiah Might & Magic (for the first time) and Kotor 2 (for the fifth time) before the week starts again.

    I shamefully still have yet to buy Witcher 2 or DXHR, because a couple damn steam sales caused my to-play queue to become distended and grotesque. However, I am slowly conquering it! Witcher 2 is my next planned purchase, and I hope to be able to complete it before Skyrim day.

    EDIT: Oh yes, possibly some BF3 beta in there somewhere, if I can get over my distaste for the current state of the battlelog system/process/whatever for launching the game.

  35. JB says:

    I’ll be trying to play some Binding of Isaac (when the kids are a-bed) also Shores of Hazeron and the 6-player RPS game of Dominions 3 I’m involved in at the moment.

    Oh, and the PBeM game of Med2:Total War Teutonic Campaign that I’m playing with a friend. I’m Novgorod, he’s Lithuania.

  36. JackShandy says:

    Frozen Synapse, Trine, Guild Wars Trial, Bastion, The Binding of Isaac. Yes, I just had a steam splurge. Games are everywhere, it’s a mess.

    The binding of Isaac: The mysteries in this game are so great. Tarot cards as weird random spell-effect things are just the best idea.

    And – you’re in your mums basement, and all the main enemies you fight are distorted, mutant variations on you? And, as you get powerups, you yourself become distorted and mutated? And the final boss is your mum? That’s solid.

  37. Unaco says:

    I might pop in to The Witcher 2 2.0, briefly… check out the Arena/Tutorial, and the combat changes. But I’m still saving playing the majority of it (halfway through chapter 1 currently) and Deus Ex HR for when I’ve got some work out of the way. Which is likely what I’ll be doing… working.

    Aside from that, I might pop on to the BF Beta a little, maybe find some time for a few turns of my Napoleon Total War campaign, and die screaming at the ARPS+FOLK Sunday evening ArmA2 session.

  38. DrGonzo says:

    “Supreme Commander to get done, new Minecraft to explore, Dead Island to continue, Stalker mods to work on”

    Creepy! I was going to log on and say I need to play those exact same things. With added RO2. But still, stop copying my choice in gaming Jim!

  39. Premium User Badge

    Bluerps says:

    I’ll finally finish DX:HR. After that, I’ll kill some babies, and (hopefully) mum.
    And after THAT, I may start a game of Sengoku. Or the new Total War DLC, I’m not sure yet.

  40. SoggySilicon says:

    Off to the Gempei wars… and when I am done playing Samurai Chess with Total War… splish a little urine on noobs in BF3… assuming I am not crashing all over the place…

  41. frenz0rz says:

    Dungeons of Dredmor! I’m on level 6, have just crafted some of the best armour in the game, and am on my way to give Lord Dreddy a right royal arse kicking.

    Oh, and I’m playing through Morrowind again before Skyrim, as I’ve played Oblivion to death and hadnt been to dear old Vvardenfell in many years. Spent a couple of days installing more or less every mod in this here guide and it was well worth it – the game looks utterly spectacular.

    I’ve also been thinking of getting into GalCiv2 again at some point, but thats opening up a whole can of space-worms, and one that would threaten to consume my time for weeks to come.

    And I’ve just realised I went and bought Alpha Protocol last week. And Frozen Synapse too. Oh dear.

  42. Gib says:

    I have to say OIO too, would love to see some thoughts on it here :)

  43. RickyButler says:

    Adhere to the calmness before the cliche. Forsooth, Tuesday will be the Day of Rage.

  44. Vinraith says:

    I know what you mean about choice paralysis, I have far too many appealing choices. I’ve been playing a bit of Majesty 2 Complete and enjoying it, trying to start a game of EU3 with all the expansions, craving a skirmish or two in Rise of Nations, and seriously considering trying to get into Frozen Synapse. Oh, and there’ll probably be some Sword of the Stars multiplayer. And maybe some AI War.

    Crap, I’m going to end up just staring at my computer playing nothing, aren’t I?

    • Olero says:

      Ah yes, “the staring at a long list of games for ages and not playing anything blues”. This world of choices, it is not made for people like you and me. And if I finally do make a choice, it’s usually a game that I’ve played too much before already, which probably translates to Fallout: New Vegas in my case. But hey, at least the DLC is new ;)

    • Bonedwarf says:

      I like that.

      I have far too much to choose from. Not that ultimately that’s a problem. I too have EU3 and AI War sitting here. Taunting me. I also have Sengoku. Frozen Synapse. Plus a whole slew of other titles.

      Prepping (mods etc…) to FINALLY play Fallout 3. Yes, I’ve never really played it. A friend is playing through New Vegas right now and has basically bludgeoned me with the Fallout stick to play 3.

      Of course I also have an ongoing HOI3 game. Playing as Finland and deliberately upsetting both Russia AND Germany. (It’s not going well). Plus I’ve got Morrowind to get back too.

      GAMING OVERLOAD!!!!

    • Vinraith says:

      it’s usually a game that I’ve played too much before already,

      Yup. AI War, SotS, and RoN are each well over 300 hours played for me at this point, yet they’re still on the “to play” list. I’ve got a pile of unplayed stuff a mile high, but I tend to gravitate back to old favorites more often than not.

    • Bonedwarf says:

      Easier to just play stuff you already know.

      I’d say about half my games I’d love to play, but I fire them up and think “Oh god, I’m going to have to sit through another tutorial… Maybe later.” List of games this applies too is far too long.

    • TillEulenspiegel says:

      I don’t mind a tutorial; it’s games with stories that I never have time for. “Oh no, I should probably be paying attention to this, and I don’t really feel like it…I’ll just put it aside until I have time to relax and concentrate.” AND THAT TIME NEVER COMES.

      I’m currently trying out the Clash of Kings mod for M&B Warband. It still feels quite beta-y, but the notion of M&B in Westeros makes me drool.

    • Bonedwarf says:

      YES! Games that make you sit through a bunch of interminable cut scenes before actually getting to do anything. Hate that. Just let me play. Give me exposition as I go!

      I don’t mind interactive stuff though. Far Cry 2 springs to mind.

    I’ll be playing a healthy dose of Lord of the Rings Online, what with the release of Isengard and all…
    Maybe a little Space Marine too, to stay in shape before the Exterminatus update is relased (which should be soon-ish™)

      Crap, my reply to Vinraith above I completely forgot I have Space Marine sitting there too.

      Problem was it got released, it was really hot and my desk is uninhabitable. Then when it cooled off, I broke my toe and was unable to get to my child proofed desk.

      Then I forgot about it…

    It’s the Jewish new year year, which means a long weekend for me.

    Between amusing a 3 years old daughter and trying to make a month old baby to laugh a bit (charming fella!), I’m playing Baldur’s gate 2 for the 2nd time (last time was 10 years ago) and finding it quite as good as I remembered. Except the horrible inventory system….

    Tried a bit of Empire: Total war but couldn’t get my self addicted as I thought I would…

    Is Napoleon any better? (Got them both for 10$ on steam’s summer sale).

    Shogun 2, The Witcher 2 2.0 and BF3!

    I feel like some kind of RPS outcast for not suggesting some kind of Mod/Indie/Atmospheric shooter, but I’m gonna be hitting up Fifa 12 this weekend and I’m rather looking forward to it.

      Your not an outcast, not everything needs to be some artsy pile of rubbish. Sometimes just wanna kick a damn ball, club a ball, toss a ball, fire a gun, or hack something down.

      Had I not bought FIFA 11 I’d be buying 12. (I refuse to get on the yearly bandwagon for anything other than Out of the Park Baseball). Though I am amused by the seemingly growing number of clips on Youtube of the new Impact engine causing some quite hilarious glitches. (My favourite being the goal scorer running, celebrating, then seemingly dying.)

      I should return to FIFA 11.

    I’ll hopefully get to finish Space Marine some time over the weekend, maybe some more Dead Island if I can gather my crew (of one other person) together. Then Deus Ex if the weekend gets expanded to include Monday as well.
