So what are we all playing this Christmas, and next year? These are games I have, or will be getting:

-Team Fortress 2 (and any HL1-based multiplayer game)
-Worms Armageddon
-UT 2004
-UT 3

I see Thrik and Metallus in TF2 quite often, it's fun. So?

Worms it is!

Oh man! This is so exciting!

Worms is a given. To be honest, I'm surprised at our collective resolve - I thought we'd have broken down and started playing it again months ago. Not long to wait now, though!

As for the Christmas selection, it would be rude not to play Quake, especially as the suggestion received such a rapturous reception at the #mokee reunion! Well, Murray said he'd play at least. I need to give TF2 a go too...

I wasn't going to bother with UT3 - looks like more of the same to me, and not that many of us ever got into UT2004. The original UT with Monster Hunt might have to suffice!

Yeah, I have to admit that the UT3 demo entirely unenthused me. It just seemed to lack much soul, and is literally more of the same with better graphics; I can't see it being any less or more fun than UT if you're with people you know.

If you're by yourself it's cack and you just get wankered by these guys who've spent years perfecting their mastery of the UT craft. I do like to get good at games and the process of becoming better is something I normally enjoy, but this is so fast you literally can't keep up and it's just no fun at all when you get completely battered every time you encounter someone.

I have much more fun with something like TF2, but Worms remains my most anticipated. ;

Just had a go at TF2. I definitely approve - it'll make a good placeholder until the Worms embargo is lifted!!!

Looking through a few threads on these forums - a faintly sad journey through our annual Quake matches and not much else in between, by the way! - I was reminded of another classic. And yes, I'm glad to report that iSketch still exists. Brilliant news, I'm sure you'll agree.

Whether it's still frequented by dodgy people constantly trying to chat you up remains to be seen. Wish me luck!

Yeah iSketch will have to happen. But I would rather drink a pint of diahorrea than play Quake.

i'll be playing UT3 mostly... that's if they get a good enough patch out to fix the bugs :smash: .

I'll probably end up going back to play UT2004.. i still can't get enough of that...been playing it not stop since it came out, very addictive :D.

Halo 3 anyone?

Why is everyone talking about worms... worms armageddon cam out in 1999.. what am I missing?

Doesn't make it any less fun. :)

There's been no significant sequel to it on the PC, and Worms 3D definitely doesn't count.

A game doesn't have to be new to be fun (and I certainly play enough new games).

But why the sudden excitement?

Because 2008 is the year of the Worms.

We had to stop playing worms for a while, for several reasons I'd rather not go into. 2008 is as good a time to start again as any.

Force Unleashed looks brilliant
