What games are you playing now?
 
Just finished the NWN mod Wyvern Crown of Cormyr and working through Crimson_Tides_of_Tethyr, and just starting the 3rd person shooter El Matador on the PC.

Getting into Godfather Mob Wars on the PSP, Monster House on the DS, and Unfabulous on the GBA.

Jaz October 18th, 2006 20:02

…um… Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Rider, for about the 5000th time. But I'm waiting for my copy of Dark Messiah, about the only game I preordered…

xSamhainx October 18th, 2006 20:59

Gothic II (still in chapter II)
Rome: Total War (getting better at it!)
Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring (finishing it up)

Illuvatar October 18th, 2006 21:14

The Temple of Elemental Evil + co8 mod
Company of Heroes MP

Whip-0 October 18th, 2006 21:25

Tactics Ogre: The knights of Lodis (fun part is Lodis means bum in swedish).
Ultima V: Lazarus
Heroes of Annihilated Empires - heartily recommended!

txa1265 October 18th, 2006 21:35

How is Tactics Ogre? I can trade for it, but am holding back because it is so rare that it becomes 'expensive'.

It's all great fun if you're into Turnbased Stategy with some rpg elements, more on the fun (let's just do one more mission before I sleep!) side than super serious stuff like Jagged Alliance. It's a great world were you're allowed to like both kinds of games - which I do… :)

I'm stuck in Wyvern Crown of Cormyr. The part where you storm the castle -- I can't succeed. I either bolt past the orcs and make it into the castle, only to be mobbed, or I take out the orcs and they send up the warning signal. However, maybe I need to let that happen.

Anyway, that's what I'm playing. I'm also still doing a bit of Kingmaker, as I never finished it.

Company of Heroes MP

Game of the Year, IMO. Such a great game with an awesome atmosphere, even though I got an ugly bug today, as a result of which I couldn't bomb the enemy base :(. However, this is the first time in a month that I've come across a single bug, so it's forgiven. Graphics are beyond words too and the audio is just pure heaven. It's a must for everyone!

txa1265 October 18th, 2006 22:52

I've heard great things … but I really don't like RTS - I reviewed DragonShard and SW:Empire at War (two of my fave licenses, BTW) and by the end I was *done* with RTS ….

I must say that both of those titles you mentioned s**k a**. Sorry, I'm not the swearing type, but they are really that bad :( You should definitely give CoH a try, you're gonna love it, it has some welcome change to the typical - and boring - RTS formula of "mine stuff-build stuff-and-rush".

I recommend that you check out some reviews first so that you get the overall picture. This is not a traditional RTS, it's way better than most of the RTS games released lately. If anything, you can compare it to WH40K Dawn of War, primarily because the same team developed both games.

I have played the demos for warhammer - it is the genre I don't like. I've watched the video clips for CoH and have filed it under 'great games I'll never play - and that is ok'.

You sound like someone who cannot be converted. Ehh, so be it, then ;)

txa1265 October 18th, 2006 23:27

I never say never … as I did a huge list of Adventure games earlier this year (Fahrenheit, Keepsake, Daemonica, Scratches, Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, etc ) which I thought I was done with after Myst and Journeyman Project on the Mac about 14 years ago …

But with my list through the end of the year … not likely ;)

Neo October 18th, 2006 23:29

Gothic III
World of Warcraft
Company of Heroes

three top-quality games :)

xSamhainx October 18th, 2006 23:52

COH is on my short list, and i still have to play Winter Assault (which is sitting on my shelf) before I can in any good conscience buy Dark Crusade. Relic is great, im so impressed just by what I've played of the first Warhammer title and the COH demo. That's why I'm somewhat worried about another potentially good Warhammer RTS coming up, Mark of Chaos. Why am I worried? Because they arent making it.
Relic is the next Blizzard IMHO.

TXa, hook me up with a link or point me in the general direction of your Dragonshard review. Curious what you thought of it, i liked the game myself as im sure you know by now.

Cormac October 19th, 2006 00:05

Just begun Icewind Dale 2, after being fortunate in finding an unofficial patch that corrected a bug preventing me from even leaving the character creation screen. So far it's good, but I hope it doesn't turn into a straight hack & slash like the first ID.
Warhammer - Dark Crusade. No experience whatsoever with this mad universe but I'm finding the game very good, so much that I left Company of Heroes aside for now.
Just went through the Call of Duty games (except for the United Offensive expansion), great fun, with the first one in my opinion much better than the sequel.
I'm itching to play an old game, The Magic Candle, perhaps, but that'll have to wait.

I beg to differ on Dragonshard. It was good fun and had a few very interesting twists on the genre.

I'd say there's a heavy influence from the Kohan series as well. A remarkably deep and different RTS in it's own right.

Ragnar October 19th, 2006 00:52

NoTR for now and PREY as soon as the reservoir for my new system comes in next week.

Not going to buy G3 until they get the game all tweaked out…running and playing like a Gothic game should. :rolleyes:

Moriendor October 19th, 2006 01:19

- Battlefield 2 (every now and then, trying to advance in rank still)
- Call of Juarez (nicely done Western shooter)
- Gothic III (just fooling around now and waiting for patches before really getting into it)
- KotOR II (just finished part 1 recently and casually playing no. 2)
- Thief III (picked this up from the bargain bin for EUR 9.90 the other day and am pleasantly surprised… it kind of got dragged down together with DXIW but it seems like it's better than its rep)

Corwin October 19th, 2006 01:28

Just started Gothic 3 yesterday. Had been playing around with the U6 M2 prior to that!!

ShadowMoses October 19th, 2006 01:38

Gothic 3
Fallout 2
Ultima VII (Exult)

Ammon777 October 19th, 2006 01:48

World of Warcraft

Londonchris October 19th, 2006 07:37

I now have Gothic & Gothic 2 in my possesion (unplayed).
I shall be busy for a while me thinks!
Got abit behind the last few years,with moving country and having kids.
Oh, and i play VP3 sometimes when i want to shoot some pool.

Badger October 19th, 2006 11:58

As a "360" user I’m hoping that as time goes on, more and more titles will appear on both platforms, but at the moment (if I mention only rpg’s) one game I am playing which I definitely have in common with you “keyboard & mouse” types, is “Oblivion.”

You shouldn't be worried about MoC. Or should I say don't keep your hopes up? Even though the game's being developed by a Hungarian team, so I guess I should go all patriotic and all that, but I won't. Simply because from what I've seen so far I can't help but feel that this game is gonna be crap. Just take a look at any of the in-game videos on e.g. GameSpot.
Moreover, this is the WH Fantasy universe, not WH40K. I have nothing against fantasy, BTW; I'm adding this just to clear things up.

JonNik October 19th, 2006 12:17

ToEE… Waiting for the G3 patches …

Sem October 19th, 2006 15:14

Gothic 3
Darkstar One

Maybe the AoE3 the Warchiefs, not decided yet

svencha October 21st, 2006 02:29

I’m playing Gothic 1 again while I wait for the G3 patch. What a great game the first ep was… Fantastic, ambient Slowdive kinda music, great world and story. It actually looks pretty good too graphically after all these years.

Anyone that knows good shoegaze like Slowdive gets a tip of the hat from me!

On topic, I dug HoMM3 out and played a few scenerios. Good times.

Yes, it does :) . Especially since you can now turn on 8x AA and 16x AF without having to worry about performance hits. The trees and some of the other vegetation look kind of crappy but elsewise it's really aged gracefully if you activate all those quality enhancing options in your graphics driver.

At the moment I am playing Gothic 3.

I believe that IWD 2 is more hack & slash, not less. That was deliberate, if I remember the developer interviews correctly. They were in a crunch, and the fastest way to flesh out the game was to make it a succession of battles. Some of the devs have gone on record as regretting it, or at least as wanting to do more, but they just didn't have the chance.

Arma October 23rd, 2006 16:28

Been playing HMM3 for a while

Rendelius October 23rd, 2006 16:44

- heavily modded Oblivion (still loving it big time)
- Gothic 3 (small bits, waiting for the next patch)
- FATE (relaxing)

That's too bad. . . or not: I'm at chapter 1 and the game keeps crashing when I enter combat. So I guess I'll never find out by myself !

Korplem October 23rd, 2006 23:38

Just finished Lego Star Wars II (those ewoks were so cute) and Hitman: Blood Money recently.

Right now I'm working on:
-Thief: Deadly Shadows
-Battlefield 2142
-Dead Rising (360)
-Oblivion
-Rome: Total War (I feel like I'll never finish this game but I love it. Best strategy game ever, IMHO)

What platform? I played (and reviewed) PC, PSP and DS. PC was really good, PSP was very good but had awful load times, and the DS was just awful.

Tauschitz October 24th, 2006 02:55

- Ultima V Lazarus (fantastic!)
- Wizardry 7 (played 1-6 and 8 but this one fell through the cracks and I am loving it)
- Titan Quest (losing interest quickly)
- Dungeon Lords (almost done TCP/IP with 2 friends - great fun after 4 patches! but but very much a hack and slash.)
- Medieval Total War 2 demo (can hardly wait for the full game!)
- Heros of Might and Magic V (tried to love it, really, but the combat just isn't compelling.)

Getting ready for:

- NWN2!
- Medieval Total War 2
- Prelude to Darkness
- Geneforge 3 and 4

Now if I can only clone myself to get through these in a reasonable amount of time.

360. I mainly bought it for the co-op which was fun, although annoying at times (i.e. my friend doesnt notice I'm on a cliff and decides to advance, draging me into a pit). Overall, I thought it was worth a laugh with some friends.
