I definitely think it is worth the 20 dollars you spend on it.

Just started Quake 4 yesterday. The game looks fantastic, brilliant atmosphere and all that. It's even a bit "too involving" for my liking. It's scaring, actually. But I guess it's too hard, I'm a complete noob in shooters and the Strogg keep showing me why.

Still playing Bloodlines. I don't have much access to the computer I play games on because of my mother. But I'm getting close to the end as my Toreador. Right now I'm in the Hallowbrook Hotel trying my best to kick Sabbat ass (despite the fact my Toreador is more a social creature than a fighter).

Star Monkey, it's a bucketload of shmup fun! Only three levels, but they're pretty big, with mid-level and end-level bosses and loads of different enemies. Quite hard as well - but not too hard once you familiarize yourself with the patterns - so I suppose easily frustrated need not apply.

I actually reinstalled Baldur's Gate and I'm about 2 hours into it. I think it's first time I'm playing as mage. Maybe this time I can actually get to Baldur's Gate instead of wandering through the south. Hey, maybe if I finish it I actually complete Baldur's Gate II and the expansion pack (It may take me 3 years...). I dont own Tales of the Sword Coast, is it an important part of the story?

On the portable gaming I'm starting Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Its cool so far, but only a couple of hours of play time.

Edit: On the adventure side, I finally started Still Life. It was sitting on my shelf and decided to give it a try. Nothing special so far, except excellent graphics.

I've been playing Earthbound for a month or so. I'm kinda close to the end, I think. Although it isn't as brilliant as it was in the first half of the game...

Also playing (haven't played in a while, though. Started it in February ) Grim Fandango. And well, the beginning is nice, even very nice. But then, meh.

Heart of Darkness, which at this rate I will finish it on 2009. Frustrating, oh yes.

Morrowind! But this one comes and goes since December 2005. I've played the whole main quest, most of the cities quests, and the Tribunal quest. I have almost all the map revealed, I have a lot of skills and abilities at 100... I have to do the Bloodmoon expansion

And Keepsake Very nice, very nice. I will probably finish it this weekend.

Not really. It's just a nice expansion that adds four extra areas, quests, more options to gain XP, and some extra content. You can play Baldur's Gate II without having played the expansion of BG I.

The expansion of Baldur's Gate II, "Throne of Bhaal" is important though, as it concludes the story.

I recommend Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon in addition to that.

Need for Speed Most Wanted.

In true EA style, it tries much too hard to be cool and is loaded with unnecessary wank, but it's a pretty fun diversion.

God of War

Surprisingly fun. I'm not too far, somewhere around Medusa. I killed her. In fact, I've killed everyone alive (and walking dead) so far.

Which is the reason that I'm probably going to buy Atari's desparately-trying-to-stave-off-bankruptcy release of both Baldur's Gate games and expansions on DVD...

Thanks. I think I'll just skip Tales of the Sword Coast.
Playing as a mage is harder, one quick blow and I'm dead. I'm currently at the Nashkel mines with Khalid, Jaheira and Minsc ("Go for the eyes, Boo!" ) covering me and Imoen.

It's surprising how the Infinity engine holds up to these days.

Thanks. I'll be keeping an eye if I can find it. FFTAdvance has been great so far. The DS could use a game like this, it's perfect for the touch-sreen and the second screen for statistics and inventory. Disgaea DS please!

checking in:

when not studying for exams, i am playing "heroes of might and magic:five."

am bitterly frustrated.

big hero. all gone.

of course, i kind of knew this was going to happen, but when it did it was just...frustrating. i get all that way, the woman is at level twenty. she's getting to be fairly good at doing things and then they trade me her for a level three guy with a beard. admittedly, the beard is a winner. but you'd think that a guy who was /that old/ would have lived in the army and have done stuff and killed people and been level twenty one. but no.

he. is. level. three.

bitterly frustrated.

Finished Half-Life 2 a couple of days ago, in preparation for Episode 1 (yes, for the first time - don't ask).

I've been trying to get Messiah up and running, but it keeps on crashing. Also, it doesn't seem to recognize the second CD which holds all music and some speech, both on XP and 98SE. So I'm pretty pissed off, I think I'll play Redguard or Giants: Citizen Kabuto next.

I've played a couple of minutes of year two in Grim Fandango.
It was quite a while since I started this game, and I only play like half an hour every now and then. It's summer and nice weather and I don't want this game to end. I'm happy I've finally found one of the classic Adventure games to be as good as eveyone says.

Glad to hear you're having a good time with Grim, Jelena (I really like your new nickname btw ). Year 2 is superb. Enjoy it.

Still playing Need for Speed Most Wanted. I'm up to Blacklist Member #6.

If it weren't for the largely useless car customisation which seems almost entirely cosmetic (does EA put this kind of thing into every single one of their games, regardless of genre?), irritating 'EA radio', and unbelievably stupid catch up facility (which you can't disable ), this would actually be a pretty tight game.

The pursuits are great fun and most of the race modes are engaging and quite creative.

Finally arrived to the actual city in Baldur's Gate.
I have to say that the gets much more interesting in there, lots of quests that involve not only fighting, like the thieves guild one that you have to steal 3 items:

Spoiler:
Got into the house by pretending to be the new servant, got outside the room, used the stealth and the stole the items.


Also lots of items to buy, it's faster to level up without having to travel a large amount of time just to get to some quest.
First I was only trying to finish the game, but now I'm just exploring everything to see if I don't miss any great quest.
