Default What games are you playing now?

Well, my original game distributed by MicroProse has a very nice printed manual. It's one of those which have a tendency towards being fun to read, and very informative.

I have a load of stuff I'm working through …
* PC: Elven Legacy - th eshine has worn off somewhat, but I am still enjoying the turn-based battles, just not so much the turn-limits for missions!
* PC: Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate - settled back into a long play session with this and it continues to be a great experience whose only drawbacks are related to the core NWN2 engine.
* PC: The Last Remnant - pretty typical jRPG experience, nice looking game, too many cutscenes. It feels like a huge game and I’ve put in tons of time and barely scratched the surface!
* PC: Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor - after loving the original and first expansion I’m rather disappointed, as the new content adds little and is over too fast.
* PC: Hard to Be a God - don’t know if this import will ever hit the US, but I’m glad I grabbed a UK release. Loads of dialogue & translation issues, but the nice strategic action-RPG combat with solid mounted battles is loads of fun and worth the price alone.
* DS: Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars - still haven’t completed anything, but am getting close enough that I really don’t want it to end yet …
* DS: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time - I liked teh first DS game, but this one is leaving me flat so far.

installed the original Spellforce "platinum edition" w/ both of it's expansions.

It's kinda clunky combat-wise (just like part two), and the resource mangement and economy is a bit more involved than the standard rts fare, but so far it's pretty fun.

Tried playing King's Bounty again this afternoon… woke up face down on my saliva-drenched keyboard two hours later! Tell ya, I know there's a good game in there, but for some reason it just KNOCKS ME OUT!

I realized yesterday that the new re-release of Majesty makes the CD in the drive obsolete, and is fully patched. At least *some* improvements …

I'm playing the Braid demo, but I'll probably buy it it's that good. This game is devious. A platformer that's incredibly creative and thoughtful, and works surprisingly well with the keyboard.

On stage 5 of Ghosts n Goblins. Yep, the fire was lit within by this funny video, so I broke out the old NES and fired it up. Been playing it off an on for two days, and decided this afternoon to sit down and hit it seriously - made it to the second to last stage in about 45 mins. Might go back and beat it tonight, if I dont get too entrenched in Runescape…

Here's a video of someone beating G&G in 22:56 - no deaths! kick ass!

Wait a minute, did i mention Runescape back there? Yep, that free el cheapo looking MMO. My fiancee loves it because it's a crafter's grinding paradise, it's like the only game she plays now, so I got in and made a char to check it out a bit.

Also playing the original Spellforce, it's fun rpg/rts!

Currently still playing Morrowind and Oblivion, and just started playing Planescape Torment again along with Boiling Point 2.0.

Gothic 3 with Community Patch 1.71,Alternative Balancing and AI enabled.
Finally after waiting for over a year,adding hardware,reformatting my PC and optimizing Windows I can play G3 on medium details and have decent FPS.
I'm going for pure mage with staffs so I had a REALLY hard time in the beginning.I'm level 22 still don't have Mana Regeneration so I use the Orc Slayer and the quarterstaff,I get killed really easy but with a couple reloads I win most fights.I can't even imagine going to Nordmar so I'll do a few quests in Myrtana and then go to Saturas who will teach me Mana Regen(30LPs!!!)
I think I'll go with Xardas but I don't really remember with whom should I side,Orcs in Myrtana and Nomads in Varant is what I remember but Orcs have some quests to kill Rangers and I'm a bit confused about it.

Still grinding away w/ my girl in Runescape. It's a pretty deep game as far as tradeskills go. Kinda fun in a low-tech sorta way, midi sounding music and basic 3d, but I'm having a lot of fun w/ it. Killing my other games tho, as MMO's usually do.

Pardon me, I have to get back to fishing

Kingdom Hearts re:Chain of Memories for PS2 was in the mail today. My most anticipated game in… well… days .
Once you get used to the card combat system, it's really appealing. What's more important - it bridges the story gap between KH 1 and 2.

It was sooooooo boring ….

I wonder whether I'll manage this in my whole life … *sigh*

Just finished Deus Ex this morning, and now I'm about to start playing DX:Invisible War.

I've never really played DX:IW, other than the demo…which I hated. Time to find out if this game is truly as bad as everyone says it is.

Recently purchased Cryostasis, and The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena. Played a bit of Cryostasis the day I got it….wasn't too impressed.

I'm trying to resist the temptation to install Dark Athena at the moment, as I've got a lot going on right now.

Can anyone point me to a good demo download for the Total War series? I'd like to try the series out and I can't find a valid one for Medeival2—but I'm open to whatever incarnation you experts think is the best one.

If so, I'm sure Riddick would assault that as well. He seems to be one pissed off dude.
