What are you playing now?

Recommended Posts

Dragon Age: Awakenings, am about 50% of the way through. It's ok, but the story doesn't feel like an XP. I'm saying that in a good way, I prefer some of the Awakenings NPCs (well, Justice and Sigrun) to the originals.

 

As for WoW, never played it and never will but I loved the Mr T advertising campaign.

they actually put a tie in to those campaigns in game where you could go to a particular npc and talk to him and get five mohawk grenades... I had at least one raid where the entire team was mohawked.

I've never bought an expansion that didn't give you a free month. I know Burning Crusade gave one.

I don't know about Awakenings but I'm having more pure fun with WoW then I ever had with DA. Insofar as they can be compared (in say, combat, level design, balance, progression), sadly, WoW is a far superior product. There are more on the fly tactical considerations when going solo in WoW than with an entire party in DA. And party based combat in WoW is really party based, unlike DA where everyone is a meat shield for the spellcasters.

 

I'm continually surprised at how good this game is, even with Blizzards high standards. Area design in particular is simply ingenious, both visually and in terms of functionality (at least when you have a mount).

 

Then again, since its my first MMO, the novelty might be clouding my judgment.

WoW is the king for good reason. It is an extremely polished MMO.

 

I'm really starting to chafe at my lousy internet connection. I miss my short forays into different MMO's.

Well, if you picked up Wrath you could try out some of the lower level raids (assuming you got the gear for the elitist berks to actually let you in). You think 5 mans are tactical... wait for 10/25 man raids where boss fights can take up to about 10 minutes of battering (Arthas has something along the lines of 117 million hp I think).

I got a nice boost yesterday when a kind dude who as he said, was quitting WoW, just handed me 300 gp out of the blue (so the money doesn't go to waste). Really refreshing after the horrible kids that spam each other in general chat.

I don't want to open up another Pandora's box with online gaming - FFS Company of Heroes ate about 6 months of my life. I fear for my sanity if I got into WoW.

Torchlight. I bought it for $5 in a Steam sale a few weeks ago, and I just got around to installing it. Some nice mindless fun, so far.

When you reach 80 it's actually pretty easy to earn money. I earned about a grand in the week after I completely drained my bank simply by only doing my daily random dungeon (earns you like 20 gold and 2 badges).

 

Also it should be pointed out that your leveling is going to slow WAYYY down when you hit 60 because (among other thigns) blizz has gone through a few times and dropped the total amount of XP required for the 1-60 game by a third, and hasn't really touched the burning crusade stuff. Although it is easier in BC because you don't run from continent to continent 8 times for three quests.

 

BTW what class did you roll up?

You don't want to put ALL your talents into one tree. In general there are a lot of talents that are fairly useless

^my warriors fury spec.

I think I have a point in the wrong spot but I'm not sure. That said, not all the talents I have would be very good for leveling because they're designed to maximize damage output, while some of the others are designed to keep you going. Warriors are ROUGH to level as they don't have any internal healing ability, but once you get titans grip things get MUCH easier.

 

Also, I r clensing the galaxy of tyrnaids on orks on Dawn of War 2.

 

Not as good as the first.

Unless I'm horribly wrong, as someone who has only the vanilla WoW, the only way to get Titans Grip at lvl 60 is to invest all talents into Fury? (all 50 talent points cos TG is the last one) The plan was to do this until I get BC, which is when I will delete all the talents and rearrange them?

True, but until that point one thing you may want to do is go with an arms spec (gives you more damage at this point I think) until you're in outland.

Bought the Zombie Island & Knoxx DLC for Borderlands. Skipped Moxi. Zombie is kinda fun, but didn't like Knoxx as much. It upped the difficulty some, which was cool, but too much focus on cars now, and when you're done & lvl 61, the game doesn't scale enemies to max lvl again, like it did in playthrough 2.5, so now you outlvl everything and the post-game fun diminishes. Also, no Fast-Travel in either. I thought both were worth getting however. For the $10 eac. anyway.

 

That's about it. :p

Adiosurf. I felt like I needed cheering up. Absolute pure ****ing genius. Basically the game converts media files (but not DRM protected media files) into a racetrack. So far so good. But I hate racing games. The thing I didn't realise is that in fact it's a racing puzzle game. You hit things as you go round the track, and you buidl blocks of these things, like a sort of tetris. While racing. Inspired by your favourite music. It's mental.

 

My favourites so far include

 

Beethoven's Ninth symphony 'The Ode to joy'

Run DMC/Aerosmith Walk This Way

 

The Tiger Lillies Bully Boys.

 

The program doesn't really pay much attention to drumming, but it goes nuts over accordion music.

I picked up Mount & Blade: Warband on Steam. So far I only notice a nice graphical upgrade, but the more I play, the more new stuff I am sure I will discover. I forgot how hard it is at the start though. I am pretty weak.

adiosurf is a fantastic game, when i'm feeling a little bored or down i can instantly be cheered up by this game... a really really recommended experience

 

lately i've been playing

1. street fighter 4

2. batman AA (again)

3. valkyria chronicles

4. Left 4 dead 2 (still)
