Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice. Just completed the first case, so far am really enjoying it.

Chronicles of Mystery: The Legend of the Sacred Treasure. Not so good..

I'm currently playing Alan Wake. Wow, what a great game. I just got to the radio station and it's been a hell of a journey to there!

Just brilliant!

Just started playing Indigo Prophecy again, trying to finish it finally (last time I got probably 75% done before my harddrive died). Currently getting close to the half way point.

999: 9 doors, 9 persons, 9 hours :) Just have to get the final ending, and I'm good to go!

Fallout: New Vegas

I didn't expect to, but I'm actually enjoying this more than I enjoyed Fallout 3. Sure, not much has changed -- but it doesn't start as F**KIN SLOWLY and I find the environment really rich and interesting. :)

Haven't played anything "serious" in a while now.

Started Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder, in the middle of the night with the headset on, and I'm pretty spooked. And loving it.

Let's see...

Fallout: New Vegas (PC)
Running around doing NCR quests at the moment. I've got a quest to go into New Vegas itself, but I'm really not interested in doing so - at least not at this moment in time. I'm enjoying it, but I wish my card hadn't died as it's really not running that smoothly on my backup 7600GT.

Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror (PC)
I'm in the upper floor of the warehouse at the moment, so I'm not too far in. Reverting to my onboard sound sorted out my sound problem, though, just as it half did with Keepsake

Mass Effect: Galaxy (iOS)
Just met Miranda, so I'm not too far into it.

Mirror's Edge (iOS)
Only a few chapters in at the moment. It's good but the controls are a touch (Har har) annoying.

Surviving High School (iOS)
I did the Football megapack (Which comes free), and I got started on S1E1, but I managed to fail that so I've basically got to restart the episode.

Prince of Persia (2008)

A very pretty and so far rather easy game. I'm enjoying the banter, despite seeing some criticisms of it here and there. I have unfortunately ruined the ending by reading about the DLC for the game.

Spoiler:
Maybe I'd take Elkas elusive comments in a different light if I didn't know what was going to happen.


It has spotty performance, at least on my old gpu. It fluctuates from really poor performance when there's a bit too much particle effects going on (dust from climbing) to running too well and somehow overheating my whole computer, even with vsync on. Granted its over 30 degrees C with no breeze right now, but its a bit of a shock to see my notebook force itsself into sleep mode to cool down for a minute before firing back up where it left off.

So far, I actually enjoy the DS version of this title more, at least as far as gameplay. Elka and 'the prince' get really varied new powers to allow access to new areas.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Started this February last year, got only a few missions done, and lost interest. I came back to it November/December and I'm still going. I'm aiming to take my time and do everything - 100% completion. And 'taking my time' is an understatement as a whole year has gone by and I'm only on part 2 - the countryside.

I'm just about to tackle Catalina's last robbery mission at a bank.

Sounds familiar

I started the game twice and stopped after a couple of missions.
I´m just not into the ghetto gangsta theme.
Enjoyed the GTA3 & Vice City atmosphere much more.

But one year ago (or was it two :crazy: ) I finally completed it 100%.
It´s GTA after all and features some very cool missions & surroundings.

One minor complaint was that many save houses (and there are plenty) look almost the same from the inside.

Major complaint is that some side missions are veeeery hard to finish.
I´m curious which missions you´ll consider the most challenging.

Have fun !

The whole 'gangsta' theme doesn't appeal to me either. But regardless of that, it's still an excellent game. I never stopped playing because of that reason though. I stopped because I just lost interest in playing a GTA game at that time.

I agree with you about the GTAIII and Vice City atmosphere. Awesome classics! :) After San Andreas, though it could be a while, I should give GTAIII another replay. I'm feeling a bit nostalgic.

And you're right about the missions and surroundings in San Andreas being cool. There's soooo much to see and do and so much variation it's crazy!

Very true. And some of them look scabby on the outside, but great on the inside. :D

I found quite a few of them hard when I first played it. This time, however, the ones I have done weren't as hard as I remember. It may have something to do with my character/weapon stats, though. That, and I use my mouse for the first-person sections.

Of course - in regards to the difficulty - it's still early days yet.

I'm not far into Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, and I'm gonna be honest.

I don't hate it. I don't even dislike it. I'm just, so far, disappointed with it. I guess I've expected too much, but I think that some of the puzzles (At this point) have been very specific and I'm also not really a fan of how 'in-depth' the controls are, with regards to the verbs. I think the kitchen scene took me longer than it should have because I was just all over the place. I'm also annoyed as to how indirect and confusing it's been. I got stuck on what to do and consulted a walkthrough, and it told me to go somewhere that's not been mentioned or even hinted at - And I bet it's right.

Think I might have to put it onto the backburner for now and focus on more recent (Even though it's a remake) titles.

Momento Mori - 1/4 of the way through...
Its real boring so far, I hope it gets interesting soon.

Black Mirror II - Still in Boston
Very good so far.

Pirates of Voodoo Island - 10% into it
Not enjoying it... not really funny (probably comparing it too much to Monkey Island)

Vampyre Story - Over half way
Love the Graphics.... but not the voice overs.

Want to play "Black Mirror I" soon.....

Prince of Persia - The Two Thrones. Just started it so not very far at all. Using the Xbox 360 USB pad I treated myself to thanks to a Christmas gift-voucher from a friend. REALLY enjoying it so far though, and the gamepad makes SUCH a difference, it was awful with keyboard and mouse!

Obscurista 01-18-2011 02:21 PM

A few... Rune Factory 2 (primarily to pass the time mindlessly when flying or whatever :P) and Theresia on DS (approximately in the middle of both of those); on PC, just started Chronicles of Mystery: the Scorpio Ritual, plus the old Sierra 'Lode Runner Online' (freebie download with no music.. grr!) when I feel like an action-y game. (I also need to finish Ceville, but we reformatted our hard drive recently and my copy of the game is still packed from a recent move.)

I LOVED that game, top to bottom. The narrator's voice, Gabriel's humour "Mostly", Grace and even the simple "Ting ting ting ting" the game made when you did something right. GREAT game. :)
