Space Rangers 2.
A utterly bizarre combination of genres.
Nice choice of options means it's quite fun when you start to play.
But that works only until initial learning curve is defeated - that's when the game turns out to be too shallow to be interesting long-term.

Max Payne 3. The shooting is very satisfying.

BG1. My mighty Chaotic Neutral Barbarian is now level 5 and reaving up and down the Sword Coast. Am about to disband my core group of whiny Jaheira and her useless husband for Shar-Teel and Branwen.

I deserve congratulations, for I have died.

I decided to give Modern Warfare 3 another chance. Man, am I rusty. I had a kill:death ratio of almost 2:1 in MW2, but I'm struggling to even keep a 1.00 in MW3. The maps that I played on don't seem to be very sniper-friendly.

Just completed NWN2 OC again, playing an evil ***hole. This time I played as a Ranger/Spirit Shaman, but I did regret picking SS. Should have gone Ranger/Monk instead.

I will start MotB for the first time tomorrow. Not sure what type of character I'll use. Might try a caster, because I rarely play as one.

I sort of want to save MotB and play SoZ first. Do the stories connect or anything like that?

IIRC, the only connection is one crossover-- the "evil-only" joinable-NPC in MotB appears as an optional-quest-giver in SoZ.

There are some small mentions, but they do not connect in any way. SoZ is basically a New Game.

And SoZ is a BLAST. My Party of 4 Bards KICKED ASS.

They wanted to call it Volo's Guide but didn't get the okay :( It would have been such a beautiful name for the expansion :(

I'm playing Icewind dale 2. I've never played it before and find the game pretty fun. I have a preety balanced good party of five characters. Nothing exceptional in the party, but it's for discovering the game.

I see, then I'll play them in the order they came out. Planning to play an evil character all the way through.

Orchomene: I played IWD2 many years ago but have never finished it. One many games in my backlog.

Spec ops : The Line. Thanks for turning me onto this forum. Got Max Payne 3 for some more adrenaline fix.

I have never had the game myself. I used to go over to a friend and play it on his PC. I didn't even reach the halfway point, but it's one of those games I'll get from GoG and complete someday.

Fallout: New Vegas on PC (Completed the PS3 version, but no way was I going to replay that considering the Gamebryo runs like ****. At the end of the campaign, the framerate was 10fps or something like that.) No kills playthrough. The only time I used a weapon was to shoot some bottles, but I skipped the tutorial that tells you to go kill some geckos. I'll get to see a lot of new conversation choices this way. Last time I played, I had Sneak, Energy Weapons and Repair tagged, plus lots of strength and Agility.

Started Mask of the Betrayer. P laying a fighter/monk, so no spellcaster as I had initially planned. Did play around with different builds before settling on this one. I like melee, and I like the fact that I can run away quickly (coward!) when in danger.

I think it's time for me to reinstall MotB. Just like with Deus Ex, every time someone mentions it I just have to install it.

Also the Day Z mod for arma 2 seems really interesting to me, but the bugs in the mod and in the game engine has kept me away.

And just like that, I gave up on Modern Warfare 3. I don't know what it is about the maps, but they seem to cater more to the Run N Gun crowd who like to jump around and spray bullets like the Halo crowd. God help me if I want to actually use a sniper rifle.

Poking around on Crusader Kings 2.
Made up a Genius King of Georgia, and so far I've managed to marry a Byzantine Princess and somehow my son is now heir to the Byzantine Empire..

Decided that my hiatus from Fallout: New Vegas had lasted long enough and picked up my game where I had left off. Still a tonne of sidequests to do, but went anyway to see Caesar himself in his fortress. After a polite exchange of Aves and mutual promises of eternal friendship and loyalty, the sucker actually gave me the platinum chip!

Decided that such valuable information was best used to benefit Gorth. I wonder if it's safe to visit Caesar again and suggest doing something nasty to Benny?

Anyway, wanted to start on the next DLC (having completed Dead Money previously), so I figured Honest Hearts was next. Chased away the whimpy Vault Dweller wannabe and I could also part with my companions for a while, no biggie. But then... your carry on baggage limit is 70 pounds. WTF is this, Ryan Air??? What am I supposed to do with the other 250 pounds of bare essentials that you should never leave home without? :(

Oh, cry me a river. I'm playing the game with Sawyer's mod installed-- my (5 STR) character's max carry weight is 100. And Stimpaks weigh a quarter-pound each!
