What are you playing now?


Recommended Posts

You should try the Dragonlance series too. I used to love that as a kid. They were mostly about fighting hordes of really deadly enemies with your band of Knights. Still good games though. They also happened to have the best box-art ever in the history of mankind.

The Savage Frontier games were pretty good as well.

 

And the Ravenloft Games and Dungeon Master ones, but that's a whole different genre altogether.

 

Edit: Goddamn bandwith-scrooges, can't link to Death Knights of Krynn gamebox, so that's the original art.

I was raised by polar bears. I had to fight against blood thirsty wolves and rabid penguins to get my food. Those who were too weak to survive were sent to Sweden.

 

It has made me the man I am today. A man who craves furry hentai.

So let us go and embrace the rustling smells of unseen worlds

Finally beat Pool of Radiance. The last fight was nasty tough, not so much because of the dragon Tryanthraxus, but because of a hoard of lvl 8 fighters protecting him before the battle. I finally beat the encounter with only 1 surviving character.

 

Now to import to Curse of the Azure Bonds. :dancing:

Oh oh, I remember that fight! First you fought some lame dude that called himself Tyranithraxus.. and the game didn't end. I was like 15 years old or something and could not figure out what I had done wrong. I think it took me THREE YEARS to find that bloody hidden room with the real Tyranthraxus! And once I got in there it turns out all the evil aligned characters in my party betrays me and joins up with Tyranithraxus.. It was like.. 15 against three.

 

Best end fight ever! Unfortunately Curse of the Azure Bonds is not even half the game that Pool of Radiance is. Secret of the Silver Blades isn't nearly as well done either, even though the interface becomes better the longer the series continues. Pools of Darkness was OK though.

I can imagine this game was truly brutal playing it when it first came out. I have the luxury of Gamebanshee to help anytime I get stuck. :) Of course, didn't Pool of Radiance come with a 'clue book' back in the day? I remember the years it took me to beat Kings Quest 2 and Space Quest 1 way back in my Tandy 1000 days. I got held up for months in Space Quest 1 due to typing an improper command. It was 'Put Jetpack On' instead of 'Put On Jetpack', or maybe it was vice-versa... been a long time.

 

I absolutly intend to try the Dragonlance series after I complete the Pool of Radiance series. I'm going on sort of a retro-replay phase, trying out all the old SSI D&D games I missed. The hardest part isn't so much accepting the older graphics, but getting along with the interface which requires you jump through a million hoops to do something as simple as pass items between party members.

If you get chance and haven't already I can highly recommend the bards tale series! Bare in mind though squared paper is advised.

 

Had I more time I'd do the same, though I suppose in way I play alot of retro stuff anyways, but usually it's shooters like r-type.

Wait...there is only the mall. That's it, a huge mall.

 

 

Well, there's some old maintenance tunnel and some canal, but otherwise you are only going to get a huge mall.

A bit of JA2 (1.13) and Europa Universalis III (as Muscowy, now unified as Russia).

 

I think Paradox Interactives next game (EU III with a roman flavour) is very much on my look forward to list :-

Gah, don't mention JA2! I haven't played it in about a year, and I'm terrified about whether it will run in Vista. I find the addiction won't trigger if I don't hear about it.

Still playing one of the best games ever in NHL 08. Am in Season 6, and am a dissapointing 6-5-2 despite a strong finish last year. Both Ovechkin, and my guy are doing awesome though as I'm actually in the top 5 for offense this because olf them (they are tied with crosby with 19 points thus far) when I'm usually in the bottom 5. O has 11 goals, and my guy has 16 assists. WOWSERS! My defense is poor thoguh as I'm giving up way too much shots for my poor goalies.

 

Still in the process of setting up my stats based on line elague. Going well as I almost have a full compliment of players, and have a forum set up for it.

 

I LOVE THIS GAME!!! :)

I've got that beaten.

 

I currently (all have been played in the last 48 hours) have games going in

 

Super Mario Galaxy (61 stars and counting)

Zack and Wiki (Just picked this up today)

Command and Conquer 3 (Installed it again for my little brother and decided to take another run through myself)

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin (On the last mission of the campaign. I absolutely hate AOE attacks)

Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations (Also purchased today)

 

Z&W and PW:T&T both had recent price drops so I figured now was as good a time as any to pick them up. :D

I do that a lot. In fact, I almost put in Final Fantasy Tactics and Jeanne D'Arc as well, today. Only thing that stopped me was my vow to finish these older games before some newer ones.

I don't normally play this many games at once, but in the past 2 weeks I've picked up 7 games. Thankfully none of them was over $30 because of gift cards. On Thursday I have a copy of No More Heroes coming to me and I've just barely been able to hold the urge to buy Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn at bay. :sorcerer:

WoW. Put pvp on hold for a bit and finally started on getting my dragon mount. About that mount, it states that its 280% faster. Faster then what? A normal flying mount I would assume. Anyone know how much faster it is over an epic flyer?

Installan games!

 

Installing Devil May Cry 4. Got tired of Amazon's delays in shipping the game, so I went and bought it at 10% off from Circuit City and got a free $10 gift card to boot. Now upon checking, Amazon won't let me cancel, so I'm about to own two copies of the CE. Time to figure out if I should return it or if I should use it for a contest on another forum.
