Games played recently

What games have you played recently? PC, console, or Mac (Shudder)?

When I haven't been busy I've had some time to mess around with Civilization 4 and thats pretty much it.

The newest game I bought and finished was Another Code/Trace Memory for Nintendo DS. Right now I'm playing Pokémon Ruby and trying to train my team a little.

Last game I played was Star Wars: Empire at War, the new Star Wars RTS. compared to other RTSs it's alright but it's main appeal is simply watching little xwings and star destroyers duke it out in space.

The last few games I played were Counter-Strike: Source (surf maps), RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 and the great free game TrackMania Nations. Grim Fandango would also be on the list, but I lost the CD :'(

The last game I played through was "Killer 7", by Capcom. Without a doubt, one of the best (if not the) games I've played, and certainly the most thought provoking.

Recently I have been playing Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-Earth and Star Wars: Empire at War. Both are awesome.

Im trying to get my hands on Grim Fandango (*drools*). I reallllllly hope it'll work on my computer. I recently played the bit of the demo that worked for me. I may be trying some other old PC game demos from Gamespot.

I know where Newfoundland is but I'm not familiar with Canadian Stores having never been over the border(Which is rather sad being that it's only about am hour away).

Currently playing Beyond Good & Evil... Excellent, excellent game. Engaging story, intuitive gameplay, fun/smart characters that you really end up caring about... It's one of my goals to end up working in some sort of entertainment industry (currently studying games design at university), so if I ever end up making games I want them to be as good as this.

To play, that I own: Myst IV, V, Uru, FEAR, Half-Life 2 (if I can get it to work), the new Prince of Persia, probably a bunch of others...

Technically I get to call it "market research". :P

This Thursday I bought a copy of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney for Nintendo DS. It's brilliant! I haven't had this much fun playing a game in ages. The characters are outrageously hilarious, the murder cases are intriguing and it's so captivating to play an attorney and tear the witnesses' testimonies apart.

I've finally bought Halo for PC and I'm going through it on legendary mode (I may be stuck halfway through level 2 but I'm not gonna give in!!!)

I've also finished Day of the tentalcle-great game!

Is The Godfather difficult? I heard you can sometimes choose whether you want to get violent or handle the matters differently. The movies are among my favourites, but I'm hopeless with games that have any shooting, so I don't know if it's worth the price.

Also, would someone who really doesn't like GTA games find The Godfather any good?

From what I've heard, the game borrows from GTA, in driving and such. It probably would be worth renting if your a fan of the movie like me.

Im playing The Curse of Monkey Island now on my labtop and MGS3 : Subsistence on my PS2. I finally found a copy of Grim Fandango to order, and after getting the demo working, Im psyched as hell to play it.

Back in December I finished Half-Life 2 (PC) and was very happy; the gameplay and scope of that last chapter just smooth blew me away. Then I immediately started Psychonauts (Xbox), which I'm still progressing through (17+ gameplay hours so far--I'm taking my time). I just got to the Milkman Conspiracy. And I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir here, but Psychonauts has so much charm that I can easily forgive the occasional platformer quibble; the music, art direction, and humor are incredible. I can't wait for Schafer's next game, whatever that may be.

In between on the PC, I've played several hours of the full version of Darwinia (the demo sold me!) and have enjoyed it; I've noodled around with the demo of Rag Doll Kung Fu quite a bit and found it really fun; and just the other day I made a serious dive into Half-Life: Blue Shift for the first time, and it's not great but it's not terrible, either. (By the way, if you've got a Steam account and register your hard copy of Half-Life, you get Opposing Force, Blue Shift, and Ricochet moved into your account gratis...at least I did, and that's not a bad deal in my book!)

I don't know whether to officially count Syberia II (PC) on the list, since I installed it and played it for maybe an hour but haven't gone back to it. I got stumped at the train station (can't talk the Russian guy out of his key) and refuse to rely on cheats so quickly, so if anybody has any non-cheat clues, I'd be grateful. :-)

Happy gaming; Laters...

I finished Dreamfall the other day. It was really good, but so many cliffhangers!

Right now I'm trying to play Oblivion. Mages are the best ever. Enemy? Oh, just whip up a little bit of a roaring, flaming nuclear (well, almost) FIREBALL!

I'm obsessively playing Tombraider 3 at the moment - made at the same time as GF.

1998 a good year for games!

Just completed Tomb Raider: Legend, awesome game. Perhaps a little bit short and the mercenary fighting scenes can be a bit repetitive but other than that it was one of the most fun games I've played in a while. If you played Angel of Darkness and was on the verge of topping yourself then give Legend a shot. You wont be disappointed, it's a sweet game

I recently bought Beyond Good & Evil and tried it around a little. It looked like a very promising game, but my ancient computer won't run it if I don't turn the resolution so low that it looks more like The Dig than any modern game. Had to uninstall and put it away to wait for a better computer.

Still, it's been a while since any game captured me like that in the very beginning. Recommended.

i finished fahrenheit (AKA indigo prophecy) yesterday - the end was a bit of a let down, but overall it was awesome.

and obviously there's also psychonauts ...

Ah, Fahrenheit, that game was good until one point near the end where the story just went a little insane and hilariously bad -

Im playing MGS2 which is an excellent game. It has over 800 pages of script. It seems for every 3 minutes of gameplay theres 15 minutes of movies. You really get into the storyline though, so its all good.

Eagerly waiting for my labtop adaptor to come this week, so i can play Grim Fandango and Curse of Monkey Island. This wait is killing me.

Ugh! Hate the sims - its basically "mummys and daddys" but computerized! And to think its the bestselling computer game of all time - depressing...

I got bored with the sims after a while, then the first expansion pack came out. It had a woodwork set that your sims could make garden gnomes with, and you could sell them as well. So naturally I created a gnome making sweatshop! I worked my sims HARD - they were allowed only enough sleep and food to stop them from collapsing. Muhahahaha
