Re: What games are you playing currently?

Completed Call of Duty: World at War on Veteran, and got all the non-zombie related achievements. Still playing it online, along with Modern Warfare 2.

Little Big Planet got a bit repetetive, and I really can't be bothered level creating, so it's been put to one side for the moment.

Taking a break from Oblivion for the moment too, cause I just picked up Dante's Inferno pre-owned, so I'm gonna start that tomorrow.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

^ Thanks mate. It's definitely one of the hardest things I've ever done on a game. Felt a huge sense of satisfaction planting that flag at the end of the final level.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Well, I've just finished Pop 2008 again, but this time I couldn't be bothered finding the last few light seeds. I ended up on 998.

I'm in the mood for playing Civ 4 right now, so that's what I'm mostly likely going to play next.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've been trying a couple of fan missions for Dragon Age (a Cousland one and a Korcari wilds one).

I've also stuck KOTOR 2 in and am trying that through. (It'll mostly be my first time though I've had it for years)

I just re-played Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne for the first time in years.

Damn fine shooter.

Starcraft II. I'm getting a jarring reminder that no matter how much I love RTS games, I am awe-strikingly terrible at them, especially against other people or against an AI set more difficult than "mentally handicapped".

The Saboteur, having fun tracking down Nazi AA emplacements in order to use them as turrets and cause more damage... Surprised to find that the gameplay is more like Assassin's Creed than anything else I can think of (except that you don't die as soon as you touch water)

Also halfway through Turning Point: Fall Of Liberty, which isn't as interesting, though killing Nazis is always fun.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Just decided to buy Hitman Blood Money on steam because I so enjoyed that game back when it came out. After watching The Pacific and Band of Brothers I decided to try the Brother In Arms Hells Highway demo on 360...

Its ok I guess might get it since only about £12 brand new anyone else here played it ? Semms perfect for a co-op mode pity they didn't add it and oh do your own AI actualyl ever hit anything ? in the demo they were useless I mean supressing yeh but hit something too FFS.

Same here. I'll be doing a complete Halo trilogy (re-)playthrough, including ODST.

Getting ready for Reach

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Anyome here played Company of Heroes ? am in a real mood of switching between games until something like Mafia 2 comes out and nails me to the controller. I was thinking of buying Company of Heroes to bide my time until the August release date of Mafia.

Well, as I put it to one of my friends earlier, "I'm a turtler in a rusher's world." I don't know if there's a fundumental problem with how I play or if the turtler gameplay is just too deeply engrained in me, but I am just not fast enough to be good. It seems like the enemy (AI or human) always has an army before I even have a barracks. I'm going to try to stick with SCII as long as possible and hopefully figure out how to hone my skills a bit.
