Gave up on The Witcher 2. Mass Effect 2 effectively killed my interest in corridor shooters and the prologue of TW2 plays like one :(

 

Dug out Disciples II to supplement my current game of Fallout: New Vegas.

A friend of mine persuaded me to join him for a bit of free Champions Online MMO playing. As a game, it's a complete joke. Utter and complete rubbish with production value so low, it makes your average indie game look like a AAA production. Only in the world of MMO's could you get away with this kind of crap.

Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

In My Day... MMO meant muddy multiplayer outside. The production values came down to whatever you could imagine a stick was.

 

EDIT: It was boring as hell, but at least there was no level grinding.

Tropico 3, random whim. May get BC2 today too to further kill time. Mind you, should do something PRODUCTIVE with my time maybe,

MMOs are games developed by failed designers that could never bother learning how to use narrative in an intelligent manner, or even how to write a basic story. It's a number crunchers genre. And a complete waste of time.

Why so angry? Did you get kicked from your guild yesterday?

The Saboteur. Some rough edges here and there but still enjoying it more than I enjoyed GTA4. Driving the cars is easy, controlling Sean is much better than controlling Niko and combat is also more fun. A shame the studio is no more.

It's certainly the best non-FPS WWII-themed game out there, along with Velvet Assassin.

 

Bit over-the-top at times, but never excessively so. Also, excellent use of colour and great music. RIP Pandemic.

I had a moment of weakness yesterday. I went ahead and purchased Drakensang: River of Time, the DLC/expansion, and pre-ordered Dungeon Siege 3, and Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012. All while Alice is set to release tomorrow. And I just went back to playing Runaway 3.

 

Also two seasons of Babylon 5, but that's not a game.

 

I know what you're thinking. "He only bought Duels for the hats!" Not true, the 2011 edition was tons of fun. I pre-ordered for the hats. I probably would have bought eventually.

 

 

But this is why I have a backlog.

Your backlog is pitiful at the side of my own. I would wager a huge amount of money on it.

I came up with Crate 3.0 technology. 

Crate 4.0 - we shall just have to wait and see.

Only because I actually finish some of my games. Otherwise my backlog would beat up your backlog and leave it crying in an alley.

I didn't mean it like that.

 

More like, I have a massive backlog, that is probably bigger than your own, so don't worry about it... BUY AWAY!

I'm in need of a mental palate cleanser. So considering doing a fresh run through of ME2 when I get the free time..

Tried out the El Shaddai demo. Tycho was right. That thing is insane.

After playing HH & then "playing" just enough to make those two videos (I don't count that as real playing...), I'm burnt out on NV again.

The DS3 demo was fun for a couple runs...now I need something else. Either that or it's Netflix streaming marathon time again. Guess I could get around to buying DK on Gog and see how it fares on the Win7 rig.

Thanks for the reminder... I bought Velvet Assassin on a sale a long time ago. Never got around to install it. Might give it a try some day. Since I bought the big box of GTA games, I think I'll start with GTA III (somebody shout 'stop' if I should try San Andreas or Vice City first).

Hey, I resemble that remark :p

 

Spent many years, many manhours (and many beers) being part of a team running MUD (before video games got graphics). Sort of MMO Zork ;)

 

Of course, I never had any ambitions of ever working in game development, but it was a fun experience. Ye gods, gamers are whiners when they are subjected to rebalancing and rule changes :grin:

Which Zork or which Mud?

 

If the latter, it was called Deeper Trouble (incredibly, my 'Gorth' login still works after all those years), if the former, no Zork, just the style of text interface and area description.

Finished Runaway 3. Much better than 2. Glad they returned to what was successful in the first game.

Playing my Fallout 2 mod again lately, while working on it. Doesn't have any subtitle to Fallout 2 yet, because I really suck with thinking about a fitting subtitle. But beside this, I really wish progress would be faster, but oh well... Slow but steady. Finalizing the first location right now, which is a big milestone.

 

Maybe I should call it Fallout 2: Utah, but that would kind of miss the games theme. Besides, it's not fully set in Utah anyway.
