Re: What games are you playing currently?

Just got started on Overlord, having picked it up in the Steam Christmas sales.

The lack of a map is driving me insane, particularly as I only play the game in short stints. Perhaps I've been spoiled by all the hand-holding objective markers over the years, but I find it so frustrating running around in circles.

It's apparently a good game, so I'll give it a bit more of a chance before giving up.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

GTA IV reinstalled fine and kept my progress. Having done some web searching on the title (PC version) it looks like I'm lucky it runs well in version 1.0 - still it's frustrating that the patch breaks the game(on a fresh XP install, sp3, updated drivers, etc.) - but given what a bad port this game was, I'm going to leave well enough alone.

After I beat The Secret of Monkey Island I went back to playing Resident Evil 5 with my PS Move.

Going to start Army of Two: 40th Day with a friend over LIVE, first one was pitiful but the demo and cheap price convinced us to give the sequel a go.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Started God of War 1 today, haven't played any of them. The graphics are very good looking for a 2005 PS2 game, but the camera and gameplay is pretty annoying. I got real sick and tired of falling off a stupid plank to my death because the camera is at a stupid angle and I can't change it

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Am I crazy or is God of War 1 really frustrating to play? The unmoving camera, the wonky controls, those goddamn quick time button press events (god I hate those)... At least it's short, I think I'm already a quarter into the game. The graphics are certainly impressive for an old PS2 game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm currently hunting for some new fodder for my DS, but just for nostalgia I started up a game of Metal Gear Solid on the PC. I zoomed through about half the game in one sitting, and would have finished had I not had to get up for school in the morning. It's hard to forget the true classics, the memories they make...

Re: What games are you playing currently?

^ Nice, that's the only Halo title I don't own (yet). Come to think of it, it's about time that I dust off the good old Halo PC Custom Edition

I've only just got it, and not having any of the necessary consoles, this and the first are the only ones I'll have (at least for now, fingers crossed).

One of my mates has played all but Reach for now. I want to try ODST (the cast are fun) though he reckons it was too short and easy.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

ODST is neither too short nor too easy IMO, especially if you don't have that much experience with the previous Halo titles. Plus, it introduced Firefight, one of my favorite multiplayer modes. It has great atmosphere, the VISOR, audio logs that tell a compelling story, great additions to the weaponry, it comes with all of the (previously pretty costly) Halo 3 multiplayer map packs - it's great value and my third favorite Halo title besides the original and Reach.

Not to mention the audio-treat for Firefly fans

Re: What games are you playing currently?

That may be why he found it easy and short. Easy because he has a lot of experience with FPS type games (though probably not as historic as mine, he does tend to play a lot more) and short because he was playing it on a mates xbox and so probably rushed through it a bit.
I don't think he's seen Serenity yet (and definitely not firefly) so the cast wouldn't get his attention as much as it would me.
