I just finished playing Eschalon book 2. And now I'm a bit undecided on what to play...

Maybe I'll finally finish Icewind Dale 2 ;)

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.


Funny, it just wanted to mention I am playing this game, but find hardly any enjoyment in it. It has great admosphere, and a lot of work has gone into this title, yet it's simply not a lot of fun to play. It's way to easy, the story nor the characters are very memorable, but the setting itself may be the biggest problem, it's just not a very rewarding experience after the ooh and aah of the visuals wear off.

On a better note: I just finished Resonance of Fate after 60 hours, and started with Arcanum on the PC, I think one of the very few PC RPGs of that era I never played.

Still messing around with Dragon Age, and I just reinstalled The Witcher.... Now I'm trying to decide which I consider the better game *grin*.... which is giving rise to some intriguing fan fiction ideas... :devil:

Currently toying around with Fallout 3 (which I borrowed from a friend) and its mods. As for the game, in simple terms, it reminds me of Oblivion with a Fallout skin. Story seem better written compared to the former, plus much better VOs and no more npcs being voiced by two people, even though Liam Nesson's vo is rather lacklustre.

As for game performance, it's erratic. Sometimes it's smooth, sometimes it stutters in places, especially when it load new areas. Graphical options is troublesome to deal with, particularly when most of the important options are used in the launcher and a stripped down version is used in-game. Very similar to Dragon Age's graphical options.

I didn't particularly like the way how the dialogue is designed, as it still reminds me a lot of Oblivion, despite the writing being miles better than it. Not to mention how the gameplay feels like Oblivion with guns.

Halflife 2, Ragnarok, Civilization 3, The Longest Journey, Planescape Torment and Morrowind. Seeing as how I can't play anything new, I have turned to great variety.

Feeling a bit strange to come back here after some time of, well, absence.

Been playing Guild Wars for the last 2 years mostly. Did almost all the content, got bored of title grinding that comes for the MMO force. Nice experience being there overall, and it got me hooked to MMO's.

So, beside Guild Wars 2, I'm looking at the SWTOR development, and thought about replaying KOTOR 1 & 2.

Cheers Banshees, good to see you all still in place!

I admit, I frequently play World of Warcraft.

For the past month I have been delving, once again, into the Final Fantasy series, particularly VII and IX.

Just yesterday, I started a new file on Fable: The Lost Chapters, which had picked up a little too much dust for my liking.

Next? Maybe The Legend of Dragoon.

Nowadays I play NWN1 (again... but now I learn how to use scripts :p ), Morrowind (I've never ended it so I repair my mistake now) and sometimes Allods Online (but after release of the new patch I'm thinking about quitting).

Sadly, my computer doesn't have the specs to play Morrowind. My GotY edition just sits collecting dust. *sigh*

Currently playing Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2. Better ported than the first game, which is a bad port, but still feels like a console game, which isn't surprising.

Playing Modern Warfare 3 at the moment. Single player is much better than the second game and it was satisfying when compared to the latter, even though I liked it as well. Hanging Makarov never felt better. :p

Aside from that, I am also playing with RAGE, which reminds me a lot of Borderlands, albeit with a bigger budget and a more convincing game world. Cities and towns have a sense of life as opposed to those in Borderlands where they resemble ghost towns. Not to mention that the weapons do have impact and it doesn't feel like a game that is meant to be played co-operatively when compared to the latter.

I've sunk over 170 hours into Skyrim (according to steam) and I'm still not bored of it...

Happy Days!

I'm still playing Skyrim (and I'm still not bored) and also Fallout: New Vegas (the game just keeps getting better with every playthrough - it's absolutely one of the best RPGs released in the last 6 or so years).
