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".
So, you're like me, then?
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.
I sympathize, I'm a turtler at heart as well.

As far as SC2 goes, I heartily recommend the "I Suck at Starcraft 2" video series by TotalBiscuit, very entertaining and high production values

Demon's Souls.

It's good, but it's difficult.

Picked up Harry Potter LEGO. Enh. I think I'm just burned out on these LEGO games.

I was just playing GTA San Andreas, and took a break from it and am now playing NMH2, on the last area...

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I was actually thinking of playing GTA: San Andreas again.

I've only played it once. But then, it was like three games in one.

Plus, it broke my PS2. So I'm kind of scraed to re-try it.

Finished my first playthrough of Dragon Age and am onto Awakenings (also did Leliana's Song).

Also got the Sword of the Stars complete collection. Had a copy of the original years ago but I'm now still trying to learn the ways to actually get a win.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

After moving two months ago I finally unpacked my 360! I'm playing Halo Wars for the first time. I hate playing RTS on a console but their design is actually remotely playable, yay. I'm mainly just playing it for the Halo story. But it's alright. I actually like the pre-placed base spaces, and the defense turrets are damn powerful which I like since I'm a slow building turtler. 'Course I am playing on Easy...

Re: What games are you playing currently?

After finishing Dragon Age: Origins (which was decent) I am now back to Mass Effect.
After playing it again for two hours, I remember why I enjoy it more than ME2. The sense of exploration is severely lacking in ME2 and I love the Mako

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm giving a demo I saw on Fileshack a try. It's a FPS Terminator game using the Unreal 3 engine.

Initial impressions were that you can't alter the options too much and that I needed to turn the speakers down. It does have a certain amount of atmosphere to it, but I've barely started it so can't say how bright the AI is or how long it is. Going off the file size, I reckon it won't be huge.

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.
One of my mates loves it (Xbox original version though). I remember trying the PC demo and enjoying it, but it's been a while.

I'm still putzing around with Star Trek Online. The season 2 add on is keeping my interest.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Well, Halo Wars was fun but extremely short lived, and the skirmishes got boring fast. I'm glad I only paid ten bucks for it. Next up: Saint's Row 2... or Fallout 3... or Orange Box. Hmm...

Re: What games are you playing currently?

OK, I finally cracked open the Orange Box! I played the first ?14? levels of Portal before I finally got pissed off at it and stopped. It's a very fun and inventive game though, and I usually hate puzzle games.

Alas since I'm not on XBL I can never enjoy Team Fortress 2...
