What are you playing now?

Will attempt to get Grim Fandango working on Win7 this weekend, popped back in my head from an EG article. Best adventure game I've played.

I loved Grim Fandango all in all but I really disliked the 3d control scheme. It was just really clunky.

 

That said, with all this news going about, perhaps it's time to start it up again... Or maybe Full Throttle.

It took a bit getting used to, camera relative movement was what I used

If there truly was a gaming god, this Kickstarter success would convince Neal Hallford and Brian Moriarty to try and make sequels to Betrayal and Krondor and Loom, respectively. After more almost 20 years, though, who in their right mind would still bother.

 

I finished a replay of Betrayal at Krondor last weekend, still an amazingly fun game to play. I'll move to Betrayal in Antara, and while it's a nice game as well, it just isn't the same.


The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

Gratuitous Space Battles. Got it from one of the past 'Humble Bundles'. I'm seriously considering some of the expansions for it. There is something relaxing about just hitting the 'Fight' button once the planning and deployment is done.

I know some have played Vanquish on these forums. The challenge missions get impossible! Anyone here beat them all? I think they may be too hardcore for me...

Playing Arc the Lad. I was only supposed to try it out for half an hour. I ended up playing 2,5 hours, ate dinner and then played again for another 1,5h.

 

Avadon: The Black Fortress.

Bought it on day 1 but didn't play much. Continued on my old save file and enjoying it. I like the turn based combat even if it is a bit simple. I guess I like to have a group of characters to control. Combat can be a little challenging on few occasions, but mostly it is a breeze on normal. I won't even comment on the graphics, no one plays this for the graphics. Writing is better than I thought, So that's a good thing. There are some annoying things like item management and collecting items is annoying. The lack of any music is also something that bothers me, but I remedy this by listening to other game soundtracks.

 

Will start Yakuza 4 next week. I've had it since it released, and I've been itching to play it.

Started on ME 2.

 

So late to the party? What gives?

И његова сва изгибе војска, 
Седамдесет и седам иљада;
Све је свето и честито било
И миломе Богу приступачно.

Capitalism II, pretty fun game although like most once the system is up it gets a bit boring. Firing up JA:BIA now.

Well it's nicer in the role where you win out of the whole deal. I can't find the Government Bailout button though.

From the first 5, only the 4th should pose some real problems. It's the hidden-untl-you-beat-the-5 challenge 6 that really needs skill and preparation. It's because of that, that so little people have platinum.

 

 

Beating the last boss on God Hard ( and i would be among top 10 >_<) and Challenge 6. I WILL CONQUER them one day. :/

 

And don't look at the videos on Youtube, that just makes you feel bad.


1.13 killed off Ja2.

Currently I am working on (in no particular order) Risen, the campaigns in Magic: Tactics, Fallout: New Vegas, and Dungeon Siege 3.

Up to around Level 13 in Skyrim. I'm enjoying it, mainly because of the exploration. I have to start actually finishing all these quests soon. I've just been going around to the various towns and cities and talking to people, getting quests added to my journal, but not actually doing them.

 

I've only found one companion so far, Lydia. I've come across three that I could hire as mercenaries, but Lydia's the only "free" help I've found. Wait, scratch that. I also had an Elf from the first town, but he got killed in one of the dungeons. Hopefully he wasn't necessary for further quests.

Jagged Alliance BIA was ok, I can't seem to get beyond a crashing issue when trying to go to another level after the airport one. Oh boy, do those voices grate on me though - Fox's especially.

After finishing Dark Souls I'm now playing Shadows of the Damned (good game, although with way too many **** jokes for my tastes) and Portal 2 (taking it really slowly with this one for some reason).

I played it when it came out. I mean I started a new game.

Oh.

 

Why would you do such a thing? :biggrin:

to my surprise the game did not end, but continues and gives you the possibility to reconsider your choice which led to your previous ending

I'm stuck on 4. Makes me want to curse at the game!!!

 

6 is harder...hmm...sounds harsh!

First Arc the Lad is pretty short overall...and doesn't finish completely. The second continues the story. Just a heads up.

Mass Effect. 5th playthrough, I think.

My condolences

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*
