170 hours of gameplay and rising, I am level 37 right now so no real challenge there but it's cool. I am finishing Daedric quests (5 remaining) and started the Fighters Guild quests which is the only guild I am no headmaster yet. I find the quests boring so far coz' I am more of the Dark Brootherhood/Thief type, go alone, sneak in, kill (optional) and leave without anyone taking notice…

I’ve regretted finishing the main quest because no more nice sigil stones for me now Unfortunately, the alter of enchanting produces less powerful weapons or armour. The only real challenge for me now is to come up with armour that is both nice to look at and powerful enough on the active effects level. I had a killer combination with 75% resist to magic and 100% fire resistance plus 50% damage and spell reflection but it looked like a damn carnival costume

I believe most of you are aware of the new Oblivion expansion "Shivering Isles" --> http://www.gamespot.com/pc/rpg/elder...opten;_title;1
Im talking about main quest only. The sidequests give you 2-3 weeks. I finished all quests, with a 2nd character for the evil ones. The one in which you have to track down about a hundred plants was the nastiest one

Im probably going to play the official oblivion expansion together with the previous one, both at the same time.

The nirnroot quests. I tried to cheat on these ones but it didn't work I put a nirnroot inside the enchanted chest (the one that multiplies ingredients) at arch mage quarters but no luck...

Still slashing away at Oblivion here.

Also have downloaded a new version of Battle for Wesnoth and its new single player campaign ... what a strangely addictive game that is. For anyone who doesn't think turn-based strategy is lame, I heartily recommend this free game.

Titan Quest
Still working on Titan Quest together with my girlfriend. We just reached Crete. She think it's fun and im happy we found a game both enjoy playing together. I do not really like theese kind of games in singleplayer (consider them boring) but when playing two or more they are fun.

Pathologic
The game looks like it's four-five years old, it do not support resolutions higher than 1280x1024, on my 4800+ 2x8800gtx SLI it runs surprisingly sloppy and it crashed when I tried to change keybindings so I had to edit my .cfg manually to control the game. Still, I am struggling to get it running to check it out.

Splinter Cell 4: Double Agent
This should be my next project really since I deeply loved the Splinter Cell series, but the messed up controls that are partially locked is a turnoff that made the box starting to collect dust on my shelf.

Avernum 2
I am not sure I will ever play this through since I considered the first "too long".

Space Rangers 2
Not really a game to be completed. Might stay on my harddrive for a long time to come.

Call of Juarez, Runaway 2, Sanitarium
Theese still do not work with 8800GTX despite the latest drivers.

GTA Liberty City Stories update

64% completed

I´ve completed all available side missions, Unique Stunts and found all Hidden Packages in Portland/Staunton. Except for one HP, which only will be accessable after one of the last, or even the final storyline mission. I still have to find the Phobos to complete the Love Media Garage bonus mission.
Just started to play through the story missions on Staunton.

Well, it manages to keep me entertained

Giants: Citizen Kabuto, I just met Kabuto for the first time. It's fine, although controls are not up to todays standards. MDK was better and more action-oriented, but Giants is more ambitious.

Oblivion is a game that keeps on giving...been playing that for weeks... Playing Wesnoth lately too-which is bad for one's blood pressure (lots of yelling at the screen and tearing of hair when your troops bomb out) also got a whole host of adventure games sitting in the other room (Tunguska, Last Express...etc) yet to play...

So true... I can't recall another game that deserves literally every penny I gave for it. Best value for money hands down.

I'm currently playing Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. I've gotten to the level where you have to hide from little cave trolls in a cavern, while trying to figure out the right combination of runes in order to open a locked gate. I'm kind of nervous on trying this level because even though I love stealth games, I've already found out that if you get noticed in the games' stealth levels, you get instantly killed. But maybe, it won't be so hard. I'll continue on in the afternoon, tomorrow, because I'm off work Wednesday and Thursday.

I played Dreamfall: The Longest Journey for four straight hours this afternoon, and I got all the way to chapter 8.

The sneaking level in the cavern wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be, so I pressed on. Overall, it feels like I'm watching a very exciting movie, but you also get to play it.

Just hit level 6 in Oblivion, having a blast with it. My last quest was helping some kooky lady who wanted me to protect her pets...giant rats that lived in her basement. Now I'm closing up an Oblivion gate. Playing as an Imperial Bard, btw....all that charisma and speechcraft works wonders when I need to get a quest or two from an NPC.

Oh, and I asked this in another topic, I think, but I'll ask it here as well: Is there any particular advantage to letting your character get infected with vampirism? Should I avoid it? I have a shrine quest that will put me up against vamps, and was looking to get some opinions on being "vamped"...

I know I had seen an Oblivion vampire discussion here before. Look here. You may want to peek through the rest of the thread too.

I'm at the very beginning of the final chapter in G.K The Beast Within. I have very mixed feelings about it. I can't wait to see the end of this great story and at the same time I don't want it to end. I've enjoyed every minute and the puzzles seem to be made just for me.

Still playing Oblivion (XBOX 360 version) here. It's really a great game, but certain issues which can be found in any Oblivion thread makes it fail to be as good as it could've been. I'm 76h into the game and I've finished the fighters, dark brotherhood and mages guild quest lines. I've just turned lvl 20 and gotten my hands on Goldbrand (this sword ROCKS!). Currently getting the third item for Marcus in the main quest. I think that when I finish the main quest and thieves guild quest line I'll put the game away. I'm starting to get bored with it now, still 76+h is really good

Decided against vampirism, at least for this character. Having a character who's excelled at speechcraft/personality traits, it seems like making him a vampire would defeat his main purpose. Maybe with my next character, though....

I'm now at Chapter 11 on Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, and just two more Chapters to go. I've gotten to a puzzle in the game where Zoe has to figure out how to get into a building in Russia.

If you feed him regularly you won't have a problem and you get a charm spell too. But nevertheless if you have advanced in the Illusion School you can bypass any negative personality modifiers because you can cast a spell so that every body nearby love you to death
