Just started "Sam & Max Episode 1: Culture Shock", after having finally played "Tales of Monkey Island". Also, am going to play all the other games that were in the Telltale Developer pack offered at Steam until recently.

Also, am planning to continue and finish "Fallout: New Vegas" finally, after having gotten a bit sidetrack out of frustration with not managing to get through that one sequence with all needed people alive after several tries.

Also have started playing the "Gothic" series. The controls take a bit getting used to, but it's looking good nevertheless.

Maybe will again play some Morrowind soon.

Also, still waiting for the Ajantis mod for Baldur's Gate 2 to finally be released so I can at last install the Big World Project. Am considering to leave it out after all if it isn't released soon. >_<


Am planning on playing the Witcher 2 soon. And also finally completing the Witcher 1.


Am going to try and catch up with the "Reality-on-the-Norm" series again. Shouldn't be too hard, seeing as the games are never too long.

You've just reminded me that I've got so much to do still in that game. Not having been able to finish it during my relatively short periods of time at home have made it drift to the back of my mind.

Shame, as I enjoy it when I get into the swing of things.

Been playing "Assassin's Creed 2" again. I've got this hard murder contract where I have to kill 10 brutes in 60 seconds. Most I got was 5 LOL, and that's counting the 2 I automatically get by jumping on top of them from a nearby roof. They just keep blocking me, and I can't counter because when I target one, it's always another one that actually strikes so either I get killed, or I run out of time. I guess this one needs a new strategy.

I can't believe that you can just cruize all around Liberty City in GTA IV and there's so much detail, so many shops that feel real, and so many ads for pretend places, and you don't even go to half of them. <3

And when Niko had to save Roman, I felt raw emotion there, it was an amazing scene for me. <3

I've still never played any of the GTAs before. I keep meaning to, though.
You might like LA Noire though, if you enjoy the feel of the open environment but combined with a more tightly structured adventure game-style narrative.

It took a silly (long) amount of time to get set up but I'm finally playing New Vegas again. Going for a Grindhouse-trash vibe, playing as a Samurai/Cowboy wannabe.







It took an age to track down updated versions of some favourite mods as well as new ones to get the visual look just right. Imaginarium tweaks, lighting and effects, cinematech film grain, grindhouse shaders... and most importanly, ponchos!

Hopefully it won't crash too much.

Last time I played a pro-NCR Miss Fortune character (female Batman from the 30s), complete with her outfit. This time I think I'll stay neutral. I never can play pro-Ceasar's Legion characters. I hate 'myself' too much and give up.

Has managed the impressive feat of having played over 20 hours of Oblivion, and my character just reached level 3.

How? Well, I was completely new to Oblivion and the Morrowind universe, and wanted a character that was strong and could withstand some damage, so I made a heavy armor, block/blade, destruction/restoration hybrid, with all my 7 majors in combat abilities.
But, playing the game, I've ended up doing most of the non-combat quests, enjoying talking to people and practicing alchemy, and really managed to train every other skill than my majors..

Should probably reroll now that I understand the game better, but I'd have to redo so much.. :S

I'm playing Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, and have a Toreador with maxed out celerity, mellee and brawl. It's hilarious now, because I just got through "Italian Dinner" like a whirling Dervish. lol

I'm also playing through The Lost Crown again and I'm at the church... Spooky! In Just Cause 2, I'm creating mayhem and playing without any real direction. The last two games I'm involved in are Star Trek Online - L'[email protected] and X3: Terran Conflict. Vice Admiral in the former and scardy-cat profiteer in the latter...

Just finished Dead Cyborg, Episode 1. I'm not a huge fan of freebie games, but this one is exactly to my taste. SciFi setting, goofy athmosphere, funny lines and queer philosophy, lots of running around searching for levers & stuff. The keyboard controls take a little getting used to, but it strangely feels like the old Tomb Raider without Lara Croft... if you take my meaning.



Game homepage & download link is in the Freeware section.

Trying to play Zork 1, but having a hard time. I don't mind having no pictures, but if only the map I'm trying to draw would come out right! Everytime I enter a new room, I draw it on the map, but if I entered from the south, and I try to go back south, it leads me to a room I've never been to before!!

I remember Return to Zork.That was a fun title. Wasn't it one of the first voiced games? Anyhow, I recall having to pass through some forest maze at one point-that was pretty discouraging. Ugh, how I dislike labyrinths!

Arg, I think I hate mazes/laybrinths the most, besides maybe sound puzzles. > lol

I just started "Secret Files 2". I love how there's a picture of the Atomium in Nina's cabin on the boat, but I dislike the new voice actress; that's not the Nina I came to love in her Tunguska adventure!

Yesterday, I've started playing "Broken Sword - The Shadow of the Templars: The Director's Cut". At first, I've thought that I was going to skip the remastered versions of both "Broken Sword" games, but the games dry season just kicked in for me. I've finished the first part of the game with Nico, and today I will continue with George at the cafe. There are some details about the game that I don't like much, such as mini-portraits during the dialogs and the fact that the game doesn't begin with the famous "Paris in the Fall" phrase. Still, the spirit of "Broken Sword" can be felt in the air. So far, I can tell there is enough story differences from the original as well as the visual appearance of the game to make it "worth playing" to the fans like me who have played the original games several times. I expect the same from the remastered version of "The Smoking Mirror" which I will play next. The original "The Smoking Mirror" was the first adventure game I've played on the PC, so it will always have a special place in my heart.

The big question is, should one recommend the newcommer to "Broken Sword" to skip the originals and start with the remastered versions instead? I think not, but the seasoned fans will IMO find enough reasons to reexperience the games this way.

I just got an iPad last Friday and have been pondering whether to get the Broken Sword games from the App Store. Just when I decide it's probably worth it, I read a really negative review. Then when I'm convinced not to get it I read an upbeat, positive review. No Paris in the Fall, though? Usually those words instantly make me want to play the game. Takes me back to the first time I saw Broken Sword with my brother and watched the opening credits in awe. I remember reading that nothing was cut from the second game's remastered version. Is that right?

Either way, the decision will have to wait. Next up for me is Deus Ex: Human Revolution...

Well I really got myself into a mess these last few months because I am playing through loads of games (which is bad, very bad) and all of them are not finished because of other games that came my way not because I got bored of them and it is a endless cycle which I can't seem to break so anyway here they are:

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice For All
Loved the first game and finnaly got round to start playing this one, I'm only at the 2nd chapter but I like what I see

Fallout: New Vegas
I have already finished it once but started it all over again the moment I finished, I just couldn't leave all those undiscovered locations and DLC's unplayed

Dragon Age 2
I really hate myself because of this one, I'm on the last chapter and I can't finish the game because of Fallout, damn you post-apocalyptic splendor! Damn you!

Wild Arms
I also play when I have the time to PS1 rpg's that I either never played or never finished when they were hot stuff, WA being one of them

Vandal Hearts 2
This one has been one of my greatest failings as a gamer, played it when it was fresh years and years ago and got to the final battle and my memory card got erased. I am only just now trying to finish it for the very first time in order to redeem myself of what I now suspect was a curse! Oh memory cards such a wonderful love-hate realtionship we had

Professor Layton and the Unwound future
I think I'm at about half the game, solving a few puzzles here and there. Thank God the game reminds you of whats been happening so far or I wouldn't remember a thing

LEGO Everything!
My brother and I are playing through all of the Lego games, haven't finished a single one. Batman. Pirates. Star Wars. Harry Potter. I'm getting a headache.

Hector Badge of Carnage episode 2
Good thing it's short.

Gemini Rue
Play it every night before I go to sleep. Then I fall asleep. Damn you wireless mouse and keyboard!

Lure of the Temptress
Got it free from GOG, never played it. Should be good.

Driver: San Francisco
Well I'm officially an idiot but it is such a great game, I have been waiting for a good Driver game for so long and it is finally here

PES 2011
This is an honourable mention since all of my time is spent playing multiplayer with my brother and cousin.

And yes I have a job, not for long though

I've given Two Worlds II a fair shake, playing almost to chapter 3 for nearly a week and I just can't finish it. Its so terribly boring. As pretty as the landscape is and as varied as the monters are it does not feel like a world.

For one thing the entire game is fetch quests given by npcs who literally lie around on beds or sit on their asses. Its a criticism you could level at most crpgs but in TWT they go to great lengths to insult you with it.

So why did I play it for a week? As I said, its pretty to look at and the setting isnt medieval england with orcs and dragons. I tried to break the bordom up with horse racing and sailing the sea on apretty good simulation of a sailboat.

Aimlessly wandering an open world gets dull eventually and I could care less about fighting Gandohar any more when that fight is undoubtably going to be just like every fight getting to him. And my just reward will be some shit heel npc getting off their chair or bed long enough to grudgingly thank me, as though they did me a favour sending me on the quest in the first place, and offering me 50 cents as a reward to add to my bazillian dollars stockpile from selling all the mook's weapons gathered from my slain foes.

I just bought Baldur's Gate 1&2 from GOG, i absolutely loved Planescape and it uses the same engine (d&d universe rules). Used BTG mod to paste them together, widescreen and some mods,fixpacks,etc. I'm just at the beginning but already having immense of fun.

I'm going the NEUTRAL EVIL path muahaha
