...and I'm done with Human revolution. God damn bosses are stupid, frustrating and not in the spirit of the rest of the game. Just.. Argh! (Even the makers of the main part of the game agree, the bosses were stupid. They were done by some other company... for some reason.)

I'm playing Hitman: Blood money a lot, trying to get good ratings (at least Professional but aiming for Silent Assassin) on expert difficulty. I've been also playing around with designing my own game (a side scrolling shooter, inspired by Contra for the NES and Sunset riders for the Sega Genesis). I've been playtesting it, so that counts, right? :P

DEHR is a game to play, not to beat. it is extremely fun, but the bosses are shit and it really gets crappy at the end. I mean, the ending, especially, is such a lame Deus ex Machina u_u

I'm currently playing 4X games... civ5gg&kk, endless space, i wanna download SoaSE, that kinda thing

I'm finally almost finished with Skyrim. Just a couple more things left to do.

And I've managed to install Supreme Commander on my mac. It's kind of nice, but also kind of messy.

And I'm sort of working on creating some sort of mix between Battle for Wesnoth and Magic the Gathering. Don't know if I'll get around to finishing it.

I just churned my way through Dawnguard, the Skyrim DLC and it was okay. Very much more of the same, which is what one expects from DLC, I suppose. My main character (Gulbasaur the Breton) had a go at being a Vampire Lord, which was somewhat underwhelming. He's built for being a sneak-attack mofo, but by level 45 he can more or less lay waste to anything anyway, sneakily or not. I like that vampires have glowing eyes though. That's cool.

I might start a new character and play through the Dawnguard side and see if that's more fun.

Anybody here play Vicky II (and A House Divided)? I'm thinking of getting it (it's on sale at Impulse), and will be trying the demo as soon as I have some free time, but would you suggest it, particularly in comparison with Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis III? The economic and political aspects of the game seem daunting to me, more so than the sim-like management of, say, Crusader Kings II, which is something I personally find more enjoyable anyways. Still, the era is a favorite historical period of mine, so I'm a little unsure right now.

Also, I am this minute downloading Faster Than Light!
Check it out, it was finally released today and it looks amazing!

Edit: Holy Damn! Choose the torrent option if you download it, though. I'm on a Faster-Than-God's-Own-Fist Korean internet connection, and the massive demand for this file is slowing the direct download to a crawl.

Not yet, I'm still quite nooby. I also have yet to buy the official game, need to save up some cash.

I borrowed Fallout: New Vegas off my brother. I didn't play Fallout 3, but 1 and 2 were close to my heart for many years.

It's very... Fallouty, complete with the "travel for hours across locations that are trying to kill you and not really knowing where to go or how to go there". But, it's still pretty fun. It continues from Fallout 2 by having a pant-shittingly tedious and much too difficult bit right at the start and having towns filled with quest-givers somewhere. I'm enjoying it, but all of my Fallout Frustrations have come to life again.

Apparently the VATS targeting thing has been nerfed, which is annoying as I think it's fun. I'm also playing it on Very Easy because I don't find combat tremendously exciting and it's more fun when limbs fly off your enemies. I'm currently in that place with the dinosaur gift shop and apparently there's a companion person nearby, so I'm going to try and get him on my team. I spent ages trying to make a character I would bang, as is always the case with this sort of thing.

Thanks for sharing some of your work experience, but I got a credit card and bought it online a while ago.

I'm playing Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. I'm not much of a gamer (I play like one game every 2 years), and I only found out about it because I heard about Assassin's Creed 3 when I updated my video card and saw an ad for it. I then discovered that my computer is not powerful enough to run it. So I bought the previous game :-/

I really like it so far.


Then, on Wednesday, I saw a PS3 + AC 3 for €299, and now I kinda want to buy it. But I really shouldn't. Besides, I have nowhere to put the thing.

Tekkit (Minecraft) for the last couple of weeks.

I force myself to play on hardcore mode because I find survival anticlimatic. I start off okay, however as soon as I get any sort of decent assets, like a quarry, or mass fabricator, I die. It drives me crazy, but I persist anyways.

Also, TF2. Sniper, mostly.

Thread Necromancy, but why not.

Anyways, I've finally gotten around to the Mass Effect series (thanks to my mother giving me her old PS3 for Christmas). I've played through ME1 and I'm on 2 now; I prefer the gameplay and storyline in 2 so far (not to mention I daresay my Shepard in 2 looks a bit better). After I go through that, I'll go on to 3.

I'm tempted to also go through another run of the ME series as a Renegade; right now, I'm going through as a Paragon. Which is fun, yes, but being evil never hurt anyone... too much.

I should give ME another playthrough, I think, but I wouldn't call the morality system a replay value feature. Its absurdly flat and meaningless for the most part... do you want to save the old lady or eat her liver? oh, jee, i dunno. Though in the later games it got a feel of impatient violence versus temperate patience, which hasn't anything to do with paragon/renegado but more like maniac on a murder spree / well composed guy on a murder spree.

Talking about murder sprees, I'm currently taking another stab at Skyrim: in the past I've played as an or rogue with a knack for alchemy and a warrior nord guy who did his own enchanting. I'm going for a pure wizard right now its pretty fun! some games can be installed and played years after you've beaten them and be pretty awesome.

Well, I finished it and all the DLC and it was awesome.

I've just started Fallout 3, and already it's not as good. It just doesn't feel... Fallouty enough. The desolation is kind of boring and the writing isn't as good, so far.

More thread necromancy.

Started playing Morrowind again about a week ago. I'm blown away yet again at how wonderful the conworlding is. Perhaps even more so this time because now that I'm getting used to its alien landscape I can more comfortably analyze its influences, how everything works, etc.

And the theme song is awesome, too. It's still awesome after all these years, even though I discovered it years before I discovered TES.
