I really enjoyed playing the Sims, with the first expansion pack. After that, I quitted. It wasn't that much fun anymore.

I'm playing Heroes of Might & Magic V a bit, some Settlers II . Maybe I should check out Psychonauts. I tried DotT and Monkey Islands, but those didn't work propery on my pc. Too bad

Use SCUMMVM for the first three Monkey Islands and DOTT.

Well, I've got all of the expansion packs (the 1st sims) ever released, and I'm having a great time learning magic and turning my friends into horses...

No that wasn't aimed at you

I used to be real CS junkie. After a while though I stopped taking it seriously and limited myself to using the knife only. Needless to say it was quite a challenge hehe.

I used to bum off a friends Steam account, then I got so damn sick of some of the jerks who play CS, why in the hell would anyone rent a server for their 13 year old to lord over?

I recently replayed The Curse of Monkey Island; great game with great music. Also I seldom replay a part of Grim Fandango; but mainly for the cutscenes.

I've been playing The Movies and New Super Mario a lot... they're both fantastic.

I've been playing Nintendogs. You can't imagine how addictive it is before you try it. And the puppies are so adorable!

Also, just won an auction about The Longest Journey. I'll be posting first impressions here when I get it.

Is it that good? I mean I am a huge Nintendo fan, dont have a DS yet but maybe soon. Isnt Nintentogs just a reworked tamagotchi style game? maybe its just not the game for me.

Well my game I played recently is maybe almost unknown, Killer 7 for the gamecube. I beat it tonight again after a long time in Killer 8 mode Its a kind of adventure game with puzzles, but often on a very low level ( its get harder in the Killer 8 Mode ) The gameplay is really repetitive ( like shooting monsters -" Heaven smile " ) but... the story is dragging like hell and the graphic style is awesome!

ok have to leave now..part 2 comes later

I think Nintendogs is amusing only in small doses (I play it in ten-minute bits) and it's definitely not worth getting unless you get it for cheap. It's basically like a tamagotchi and all you do is take care of the puppies, train them to enter them in competitions, get money for more puppies and so on.

If you get a DS, do yourself a favour and buy Phoenix Wright. It's one of the funniest, craziest and interesting games I've played in my life.

Don't forget Nintendogs has voice recognition so you can teach it tricks!

Also don't get Phoenix Wright unles you really, really, really, really, really want it. It's a few hours of gameplay and since it was discontinued it can cost up to $100. I paid $70 for my copy on eBay.

I thought Capcom was going to make more copies due to the demand. Was that cancelled? Also, wasn't that the case in the US? As far as I know, the game is still relatively easy to obtain in Europe, and last time I checked Sallim lived in Germany.

You're right about the short gameplay hours, though. It also has little to none re-play value, unless you want to experience the jokes and mysteries an extra time. I was so charmed by the characters and stories that I think I'll keep re-playing it forever. Still, I hope the next in the series is more difficult.

Huh... maybe it was just in the US, not sure, I know they're still making copies in Japan but not sure about Europe... still a good game and worth looking at anyway.

I just finished Broken Sword: The Angel of Death and I'm having mixed feelings about it. I loved all the locations and characters in New York, but I felt that the game got steadily worse after that. Some of the last hacking puzzles drove me insane because the game didn't explain all the new factors, and I didn't think to check out the manual.

The ending plain sucked. If it had been different, it might have saved a lot. What I especially missed was the well developed characters. I felt like there should have been more dialogue and background info regaring the different characters. Spallacci, for example. All in all, this is my least favourite BS game.

I heard the game sold quite well for starters, so maybe there's a chance for a fifth some time in the future. I wouldn't object. I refuse to believe that the series ends like this.

Just today I finished playing through Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes for Gamecube, its a remake of the original, but has the graphics and features of MGS2, in case you didnt know, of course this makes the game easier than the original PS version, even if you are playing on extreme difficulty

I played through to get the bad ending, so next time I start a game I get stealth, which makes for lots of interesting occurences, I like to toy with the guards

I just bought Keepsake and I've been playing it a little. What a boring game! I see no fun in wandering alone with nobody to talk to and solving mechanical puzzles (which I hate in general). I can't stand the voice acting and the cutscenes don't look impressive.

The only thing I like is the story, but the rest bugs me so much that I might finish it using a walkthrough.

I recently dug out my Mega Drive from many a year ago and played through the first Streets of Rage game, the music is amazing, I think its composed by Yuzo Kushiro, who composed the soundtrack for all the Streets of Rage games (1-3) and also Revenge of Shinobi.

The game brings back alot of good memories

At the moment I'm playing Anachronox and Neverwinter Nights 2. Anachronox is a hidden gem from Ion Storm me thinks.

Haven't really gotten into Neverwinter Nights 2 yet, but it's looking good. The requirements are way too high though, for a game that doesnt really have that great graphics.

I just finished Grim Fandango yesterday. It only took me a day, because I just got addicted to it. Definitly my favorite game.

Im also trying to get my hands on the original Sam and Max, with not much luck. After christmas Im downloading the first episode of the new Sam and Max thing, Culture Shock.
I'll be plugged to Oblivion and Gears by then, so alot later after christmas.

Well I just got done with Scratches, a good old home grown adventure game. Very subtle and has a great environment.

Otherwise, pick a letter

I've completed Sam & Max: Culture Shock and Sam & Max: Situation Comedy

Nothing special... quite easy puzzles, but both little buddies crack me up

Finished an older adventure game called I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream a minute ago. What a buggy game! I had to start over several times because it kept crashing and corrupting my safe files. I played it entirely with a walkthrough (because I wanted to avoid all the numerous bugs), but even then I got stuck several times. Bah.

Other than that, it was quite an interesting experience. My favourite segment was probably Ted's because it had such an interesting premise. Gorrister was excellent as well. Same for Nimdok, though I'm quite disturbed by that I grew to feel sympathy for his character, even after learning all the things he had done.

I hear the game has multiple endings, so I'll probably have to try again a few times to see if I can reach a happier one than the one I just got. Then again, I have a feeling that there is no happy ending in this game.

Anyone else played this? I'd love to discuss it.

Pikmin 2 is an awesome game for Gamecube; it's very long and challenging. The Metroid Prime games are great as well.

I haven't been doing much PC gaming lately, besides Grim Fandango.

I've been continuing on Call of Duty (1st one) online...it is just the perfect formula. I've also been playing a lot of Super Smash Bros. Melee with a bunch of my friends...can't beat it. I've also been playing Grim Fandango when I have time...I'd say my 50th time playing it...never gets old.

I just realised that my copy of Psychonauts includes a complete German audio track, so I've been playing the game in German. It's amazing how well some of the voices match!

I dug out Super Mario Sunshine a few days ago. Started it up and quickly realised why I'd stopped playing it in the first place, and that is that I suck at those darn obstacle courses! I always panic and do something stupid like simply walk off the edge of a platform to my death.

That and Spiderman 2, which I stopped playing because whenever I play it, my Gamecube makes these whizzing/clicking noises like it can't quite read the disk. As soon as I hear that, Im just waiting for the error message to pop up.

I'm about half-way through The Longest Journey at the moment. I'm liking the story, though it seems to be moving fairly slowly up until now. I also didn't realise that there was so much bad language in it. It seemed somewhat unneccessary to me.

Of the newer games, I've only played Broken Sword 4 and Dreamfall. BS4 was a disappointment and I've noticed that some people love Dreamfall and others hate it. If you want a fascinating story with no real closure, great voice acting, music and atmosphere, try Dreamfall.

If you have a Nintendo DS, you can't go wrong with Phoenix Wright.

Oh, and stay away from a game called Keepsake. It's a perfect example of a game that sounds really promising and then fails in almost every area.
