I finished Assassin's Creed (X360) over the holidays and loved it. I prefer PC gaming but it was a superb console experience.

And I mention it because it has an AMAZING keep experience that PC cprg's have attempted repeatedly, but always fouled up. I finally had my own domain that I could restore and watch transform in magnificent fashion. Finally!!!

My next project WAS going to be DA:O but I've prioritized Demon's Souls for the PS3. I hear it is amazing and extremely hard, which is a refreshing change. Looking forward to a realm where I have to take each and every encounter extremely seriously.

Will let you know!

I finally caved and bought Assassin's Creed 2 and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2. I suspect UA2 will be the game I pop in to tide me over while waiting for Mass Effect 2.

Marvel? I'm trying real hard not to hate you here.

I'm back to playing Rome Total War. Europa Barbarum mod active of course. And occasionally, I burn about three hours or so trying to win a single game of solitaire.

Playing some Fifa Manager 10 (have just won the League Cup with Wolves :D ) and still on Saboteur until I get healthy enough to put in my new SSD, and then I am waiting for Mass Effect 2 just for the heck of it.
Have finally put DAO on the shelf until the expansion pack comes out.

I was going through Mass Effect to build up a character to transfer over when ME2 comes out, but I got sidetracked by Grand Theft Auto IV. Once I got past the fact that it's a pretty awful PC port, it still is good old GTA fun.

I doubled my games catalogue in Steam over the holidays with all the ridiculous sales they were having. I've pretty much got games to play til the end of the year...and I probably won't get to all of them.

Currently playing Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for the PC with a little bit of Far Cry 2 and Modern Warfare 2 in between. Regarding the former, a real bad port compared to either GTA IV or Resident Evil 4. Technically speaking, it's riddled with memory leaks, causing slowdowns at random, and the video settings (and others) are rather sparse. The patch did improve things, but the memory leaks will still occur after playing for a while. It's a pity because I find the art direction really good.

In terms of gameplay, the controls are finicky, but once you get past the controls, it's not a bad platformer. Does get repetitive and it isn't helped by the trial-and-error nature of certain battles, particularly boss fights. The story itself is well written, including the characters themselves and it helped in keeping me engaged in the game. Currently, I'm in the middle already. :)

Ditto, save that I am playing it on the Playstation 3. I'm also playing NWN2 Storm of Zehir and Mask of the Betrayer (again and again, with different characters), and Dragon Age: Origins on the PC. I grew tired of MMOs and am enjoying life without them. However, with that said I am looking forward to Bioware's MMO effort, Star Wars The Old Republic. That will lure me back to MMOs to at least try it out when it's finally released (or if I get picked for beta testing). ;)

Currently playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for the PC. Found it to be just okay, albeit consoley (Then again, it is designed primarily for the consoles, so what to expect?). Performance-wise, it is okay, with some noticeable frame-rate drops in intense firefights but overall graphics are good. Gameplay-wise, very console-ish, weapon too close to the screen, small FoV and the melee animation is a bit on the slow side.

As I said before, it's a decent, well-ported game, but to add, one that should have stayed on the console since it was primarily designed to introduce the console players to the Battlefield franchise. If compared to Modern Warfare 2, I still think the latter is better than this game.

Currently im playing Age of Wonders (1). I find it greatly underrated and overshadowed by HoMM series. If you are sick of "Hmm, he has 21592 more behemoths, but i have 69101 black dragons more" then try AoW out!

To be quite honest AoW should be named Heroes of Might and Magic (due to the fact that your hero can, and probably will, turn into an unstoppable killing machine) and HoMM should have Age of.. in front of its name.. Cause of it beign a game where number of strong troops stands above everything else

The last fact, of hero turning overpowered is one of the down sides of the game. The biggest plus is.. Tactics that you chose will turn the pace of combat countless times!

Edit : Ah, and from time to time i visit Dwarf Fortress game to unleash some lava upon elves!

Metro 2033

Im enjoying this game a lot, It made me remember the STALKER games (russians, post apocaliptic setting, mutants) the game adds a few layers of immersion, I love putting my nightvision googles turning them off and play through a level like that, the mutants are really well done and their AI is good, humans are dumb as hell and not very challenging but oh well cant be helped :rolleyes:

thinking of etheir getting mass effect 2 or the expansion for dragons age
Have you seen my brain around here? No? well in case you see it its brainy and squishy looking. If you see it let me know

I liked Metro 2033 too. :)

Actually, I prefer it a lot more than STALKER, to be honest, despite the latter being interesting in terms of atmosphere and setting plus it's assortment of weapons and attachments (still didn't like the rather non-existent plot, though).

Also liked the mutant's behaviour, design and it's AI, but I have to agree with you that the human AI leaves a lot to be desired (a.k.a. very scripted). The problems this game have is it's random performance drops and a lack of graphical customisation.

I would also like to point out that there is a bug in the game where you might not be able to interact with anything at all (as in no gun will appear and you cannot pick up stuff) when you go back underground after the first trip to the surface.

Aside from that, I am also giving Cryostasis a go. Not bad, though performance is spotty in parts.

Currently playing through Half Life 2: Orange Box and the mods, plus experimenting with modding myself. Make that forced to as tweaking the weapon values requires creating a mod through the SDK (which can be aggravating as I encountered missing animations, vehicles missing their steering wheel and front wheels, etc.) instead of just using its ini files.

Not much time to play, thanks for six days and average of 52 hours per week -work schedule. :angry:

But when I find the time, mostly Dwarf Fortress, at times some muds and roguelikes.

Is it as good game as many claims it to be? Have been considering about buying it when I have more time to actual gaming.
