Re: What games are you playing currently?

Well I just beat inFamous earlier today... good game, I really enjoyed it.

Tomorrow I'm gonna either go back to The Force Unleashed (the first one) or maybe start either Battlefield: Bad Company 2 or Alpha Protocol.

Me and Aragorn are also still playing the Transformers campaign (co-op). Two chapters to go.

Yes, so far it's a lot of fun. It's very much like Fable II, the feel, the story, the whole atmosphere, and the gameplay is quite similar as well.

I'm sure it'll make for a few days of good entertainment.

How was Fable II, by the way?

I only played the first Fable on the original Xbox - I thought Fable I was fun, but I never bothered with a second playthrough. It just didn't motivate me enough I guess.

Voyager: Elite Force. I prefer it to the sequel.

I've never owned a Vista operated computer before, but it works perfectly well on my Win 7 machine x64, so I assume it will work on Vista.

... Although I did have to run the setup program myself rather than rely on autorun as it threw up an error.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Took a break from demolishing stuff in Red Faction Guerrilla to have a few races in PGR4.

Thought about playing through FEAR, Condemned or The Darkness for Halloween, but figured races are easier to dip into during lunch or whatever.

Then I got mightily impressed by the new Castlevania...

Very nice. Elite Force was an awesome game, and I agree about the sequel.

Oh, I loved it! I never played the first, so the second was actually my first Fable experience, and it was loads of fun. I loved the story, a bit fairy-tale like, I loved the humour in it and the fact it didn't take itself too seriously. The gameplay was also fast and fun. Not as complivcated an RPG like, say Oblivion, but with its own great features.

This!

I loved the original Elite Force.

I was so disappointed back then when I heard that Raven Software wasn't going to be responsible for the sequel, I think Ritual Entertainment really missed the mark with EF II.

I just finished The Force Unleashed. And Aragorn and I finished Transformers last night. It's been a pretty busy week for me because I recently also finished God of War 3 and inFamous.

Sounds very much like the first Fable. I enjoyed it, but it lacked the level of complexity and depth that is required in an RPG to keep me playing for more than one playthrough. Still, I think I'm going to give II and III a try, people seem to be enjoying them quite a bit.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Just started Fallout 3 (borrowing it) deffo more of an RPG than Mass Effect or Fable II (only other real RPG'S I played and liked). 2 hours or so and didn't feel like I got much done but It seems a decent game and I enjoy going around the wasteland.

Would of been great with Borderland style CO-OP.
