I've been DMing a (retooled / rejiggered) Van Buren PBP game. It's a bit of slow going (as PBP games are wont to be) and my sea leg acquisition is definitely visible at points but we're nearing the end of the prologue (the Tibbets / Big Empty prison, renamed The Big Top to avoid clashing with Old World Blues). Only took us 2 months and one player dropout!

You can read the thing here, if that's your bag. I've been heavily drawing from advice / documentation I acquired from Josh back in NWN2 day, when he lacked the good wisdom to prevent fans from directly contacting him. I also collaborated with Ausir to some extent when I was first pulling it all together. Good times.

Spurned on by having played through Storm of Zehir, started up a game of Darklands. It's been quite a long time since I played it so feeling a bit rusty all in all. However, it did not take long before it sucked me in completely. A game from the early 90s (92 I think?) does a lot of things better than many games today. The interface is a bit annoying (but actually got into it surprisingly fast again) and combat is not too exciting but man... It's a great game.

Continuing with Baldur's Gate. My PC is level 8 berserker and Imoen is dualed from thief at level 7 and is now level 8 mage, and I still have the whole city of Baldur's Gate and all of the expansion content to do.. Having Jaheira and Minc in the party too, I think I might destroy everything in BG2 with ease when I get there =]
Probably going to dual my PC to mage at level 13, shouldn't take too long to get berserker abilites back as I might be at level 9 when I get to BG2.

Also started a new world in Minecraft when 1.0 was released, the most effective spare time annihilator known to man. Got really awesome map, they really made the world generator better.

Still playing World of Tanks too. Remains to be seen how long though, it's turning to be the most expensive "free game" ever FAST.

I'm definitely having trouble focusing on much with TOR just around the corner. I ended up playing a few rounds of Battlefield 3. I got teamkilled a few times, one time for jumping in a helicopter that I saw a person in, and then bailing when I realized he wanted me to fly it. I guess this bothered him, so he opened up on me. Then I was killed in a jeep for driving off without someone. I was actually going to pick up a few folks who were running up ahead, but whatever. Hardcore servers are hardcore!

I might go back to Mafia II for a bit, at least the cars in the 50's are a lot more fun.

I dunno. I found dualling a bit empty in such a longrun as the whole Baldur's Gate franchise. A bit more fun to explore single trees in depth. Personal taste, I guess.

The two times I have finished SoA and once ToB, I had a single class berserker, so been there, done that ;)

I'm going to miss out on fighter hi-level abilities on my PC, but I think the spells he gets more than makes up for them.

I've now beaten all the guild quests in Skyrim. So I think I can put that down for a while.

I may go back to Metal Gear Solid 2 HD Edition. Or I may read a book.

Just got yesterday International C license gold for every test in Gran Turismo 5... Man I never thought some racing game could be so addictive... Spent more than 6 hours on the License to get it full gold... Besides that I started Star Ocean Last Hope International... Bot somehow I forgot to use save game feature, so after 2 hours of grinding I got owned and I nearly killed my DualShock 3 O.o

Finally got my C&C Generals copy. Gotta say, while it is in no way as good as RTS giants a'la AoE, SC1 or even the first two C&C games, it sure as hell is better than the latest 3 C&C games. It's a good thing EA decided to reboot the series with a (mostly) fresh team, 'cause that's exactly what the series needs in order to stay relevant.

So far, I'm enjoying it. Chinese sure know how to **** up their enemies.

Played a bit of Tribes Ascend. Is really fun, nice to know my disc skills haven't rusted up after all these years.

i was irritated by all those challenge missions and those long boring memory fights, and the actual story and narrative are pretty weak in my book.
i think the demo really brings out the best part of it.
The only things that impressed me besides the demo part are the song and the ending choice.

Looks like something that would have been released on the Amiga 20 years ago. Nicer graphics though :sorcerer:

I can at least give the demo a try.

I played it for a while, too. Seems like a fairly pretty hack and slash. I never saw what was so interesting before I got sidetracked by other things. I do need to go back, however. It wasn't bad.

I've been dabbling at a re-run of Fallout New Vegas with all the dlc. Finished off Honest Hearts, meandered around, just started up the whole Sierra Madre kickoff.

I'm not sure why, but I'm not getting hooked at the moment, having to stir myself up each time to try to get back into the game.

I guess it's one of those odd moods, and no doubt twill pass..
