Re: What games are you playing currently?

Over the next few days it'll be Dragon Age: Witch Hunt and Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker.

I'll probably play some more of Modern Warfare 2 single player too

I haven't played Dragon Age I was just wondering in general.
Oops. I should have been more careful not to spoil some of the decisions you can make. Sorry about that!

I probably won't play Dragon Age. I love Bio Ware and all but the fantasy setting... enh.

I would suggest reconsidering. I'm not a fantasy person as well, but an outstanding game is still an outstanding game, despite the setting.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

My Steam copy of Amnesia: The Dark Descent is installed and ready to play. I am waiting for it to get dark out so I can play it with the proper atmosphere.

Everyone who likes horror games should check out the demo.

I love the story, the setting, and the characters of Dragon Age: Origins, but next to the Mass Effect games, playing the Dragon Age games with their Baldur's Gate-style engine, uninvolving combat, and voiceless protagonists feels like a huge step backward. I hope the upgrades and improvements made to DA2 will be similar to what ME2 was like compared to its own predecessor.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I picked up some games from my school's library to kill some time:

*Final Fantasy VII
*Nobunaga's Ambition: Rise to Power
*Lord of the Rings: The Third Age

"Final Fantasy VII" and "Nobunaga's Ambition" are both great games.

Actually, I like DA:O for the same reasons you dislike it. I also prefer the ME games overall, but DA:O was a very nice change of pace and a nice throwback to the Baldur's Gate games (which I loved).

Also, the differences between the two franchises were very much intentional by design, e.g. the voiceless protagonists.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've been trolling the 'net and my local Recycled Video Games for some titles that won't make my computer cower in the corner like a terrified dog, but no luck as yet. It's a pain in the arse when you can't afford to buy a brand new computer every time a game takes advantage of the newest DirectX tech or video chip. Mmm... chips...
The game that my computer has the least trouble running is the original Star Wars: Battlefront... with the graphics turned almost all the way down... and even then it stutters if a grenade explodes nearby.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

^ Oh, there are quite a few things you can do still. It's not over yet.

After finishing LotSB for ME2, I've played Toy Story 3 all evening. It came free with my new (second hand) 360 Elite and it's so much fun!

Today I'll download Witch Hunt.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Help! I'm doing the "Trouble on the Homefront" side-quest in Fallout 3. I talked down the Overseer and now I'm supposed to talk to Amata to finish the quest. But I can't find the bitch anywhere! I've walked up and down that entire damn complex, and the walk-through instructions don't make sense!

"You can head north, talk the Overseer out of everything by a Speech Challenge, then head down the stairs to the lower level and locate Amata (and you'll bump into Butch here too) who will tell you to leave the Vault forever, even if you just saved it."
