Right now, I am playing Warhammer online. My 30 days ends today and I won't be extending my time. Very unpolished and although pvp is good fun, servers are already struggling for players to do public quests and more.

I'm also playing Sins of a Solar Empire, Battlefield 2142 (STILL!) and I pop into Galaxies every now and again

I'm not really playing anything outside of GMax (modeling program for those who don't know), but, when I do, I've been going down the road of nostalgia and playing some old PSX games from when I was a wee tyke. Games like Crash Bandicoot :p

I've attempted to play other games (TFU, GH:3, MP:3, ect), but until I get this TV situation sorted out, (our living room one was going funky, so it went into my room. The one in my room went in the back, the one in the back went down here, while the one down here went up until we can get our new TV set up. Then, everything will be back to normal. I will miss the HD shows, but meh) I can't really play anything higher then PSX games, because the graphics stink big time. (because of the low def TV down here, not the games, mind you)

Other then Crash, I've been turning TSL on every once in a while to test stuff.

LC Stories - played that one on the PSP the day it came out. It was a nice distraction, for a while, anyway...still, it was vastly superior to VC Stories!

I'm currently back to Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 on my PS3, trying to increase my rank to Warrant Officer! And I still play GTA IV regularly enough - GTA usually has immense replay value to me - and it's actually worth playing for a long time after the end of the story.

Haven't played much on the PC lately. Last things I played were Mafia (finally - far superior to PS2 release) and Rome: Total War. Now Empire taunts me from the shelves of every game store...cursed computer...

Aww. Well, proved my suspicions...I made the better choice :woo:

Still, being a VC lover (obviously, if you can't already tell by my name :xp:)
I suppose I ought to get VCS before it dissappears off the bargain shelves and ends up only on the internet for a wallet raping price. Happened to Jedi Academy. And some others like Marvel VS Capcom 1&2. ! was stolen from me though. :curse:

I am going to crack open that Mafia in my cabinet for my PC, once I tire of KOTOR 2. Then again, my electronics shop table is looking mighty sexy to me right now...I've got a few projects in mind. ^_^
I may just get lost in diodes, resistors, capacitors and ICs...with some lasers.

GTA 4 is MAJOR cool. Too bad I cannot afford all the parts and whatnot for subscriptions to XBOX360 LIVE (it was a gift and I seriously can't afford jack as it is right now), because I'd download the expansion Lost and the Damned--about 10-20 additional hours of gameplay and a few other things not available in the regular GTA4.

otherwise I'd get megaman 9 (GO RETRO 8-BIT, BOYEEEE!), SF2 turbo (hell, just about any SF game), other classics

Hm. so mafia IS all that, eh? Coolness. You will be SO envious to hear this, but at a local flea market I bought it for a helluva deal. Box in good shape, CDs nearly perfect.

The guy just wanted to throw some stuff out. He himself seemed like a mafia-ish apartment owner tossing out some schmuck's stuff, real quick, real cheap.

Perhaps, but I advise you to try to get it for (at most) half the original RRP - and keep all expectations quite low. There was one bug in particular that irked me - cars disappearing from some garages. Whether or ot that was fixed for PS2 I don't know!

I am going to crack open that Mafia in my cabinet for my PC, once I tire of KOTOR 2.

Do, absolutely. It's great fun - and the Freeride/Freeride Extreme modes really make it!

GTA 4 is MAJOR cool.

It really is.

Accursed Microsoft XBox thing...:swear:

You will be SO envious to hear this, but at a local flea market I bought it [Mafia] for a helluva deal. Box in good shape, CDs nearly perfect.

That is also a piece of sheer brilliance in gaming! I alway choose Western Rome and start setting history right. :carms: Of course, their campaign is devilishy difficult at te start, but some abandoning of cities ruthless re-conquest and general toadying usually does the trick until the treasury builds up again!

I'm currently playing Professor Layton and the Curious Village (DS) (http://www.professorlaytonds.com/), and Peggle (XBL) (http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-GB/games/media/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d80258410889/?p=1&of=1&sb=1#offers).

Professor Layton is like the perfect game for me, because I absolutely love puzzles, mind benders and riddles, and the ones in this game are truly brilliant. They are just the right level of difficulty to get the little grey cells going, and give you a great sense of satisfaction when you figure them out. The game is presented beautifully in it's setting and text, and Layton himself is as charming as Sherlock Holmes. One of the best games to come out on the DS in a very long time.

Peggle is simply one of the most addictive games there is. I got it yesterday, sat down and hardly moved from the sofa until I'd completed the Adventure section. Play the XBL demo, and you'll see exactly what I mean, or check it out on Steam.

Use dementation whenever you have the opportunity in conversation--some of those conversations are hilarious.

leXX--I picked up the Professor Layton game--I'm going to play that one after I play through GTA: Chinatown Wars that I picked up along with the DS a couple weeks back.

My kids and I are playing Rock Band 2 and we are just having a total Blast with it. I actually practiced some of our favorite songs in hard mode before they got home from school yesterday. They were absolutely ecstatic that I'd d/l'd the Spongebob songs, so of course we had to play those. Point Man laughs when we sing Eye of the Tiger and Hello There at the top of our lungs.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell (I had to take great pains to steal his copy), and its pretty slick. Needs quite a bit of patience and I can't play it for really long stretches, but it has that special quality of making you want to come back to it and get into more espionagy hijinks. The controls are a bit clumsy to use though, could have used more fluidity.

No achievements though. I shouldn't be one to complain either, not like I have the game XD.

I finally got around to buy Deus Ex, and I've been verily enjoying that, especially with my week off. The level design is brilliant, and really is reminiscent of Dark Forces in the way that every level is complex and realistic.

Other than that, I'll probably buy Platinum soon for my DS, but since there's also at least ten other DS games that I also want to play, I'll have to probably get one for now, which means that I'll probably get Hotel Dusk and Lock's Quest later on. But then, there's also The Dark Spire, Myst DS, Professor Layton, and others that I still want to play, so that'll be a hard one.

So many games, so little time/money. :p

Oh I'm loving those conversations. I find myself giggling every oportunity I have to talk to someone. It's made me hunt around for more people to talk to haha. Actually it was kinda on your recommendations(from the Lucascast) as your gaming seems to match more closely with mine.

I actually wasn't surprised at all by the two daughters of Janus Therese and Jeanette. It was obvious from when I first met them. I just finished the ship part. So far, I think I like playing a Malkavian... the response for Did you see anything strange when you see Lacriox was identical to what I said(before I saw the responses), "I see dead people" and of course one of my favorite quotes(thus far) "Death is not as peaceful as I had hoped"
