About to start The Secret of Monkey Island: SE. I haven't played SoMI in maybe 8 years so I've forgotten almost everything that happened in the game, so it will be like starting fresh.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

RDR made me laugh out loud last night. I was trying to get the master sharpshooter award and had to do the bit where you disarm 6 people without reloading or switching weapons, so I went to Pike's Basin and did the gang hideout there. I come up to a rock where two badguys were hiding and went into dead-eye mode with the intent of targetting their gun hands.

In the heat of the moment I tagged the first guys left hand. Instead of just cancelling like I should have, I went ahead and tagged his right hand as well and then hit the trigger. Both the badguy's hands got shot off, but the funny part was just as this happened, he held up the stumps as they gushed blood and the 2nd bad guy behind him takes a split moment to stare at them in disbelief, then turns his head to me and yells out "OH SHIT!!" before trying to fill me full of lead..

I swear, it looked like it was scripted. It may have just been serendipity, but it all seemed to be in context.

Picked up The Secret of Monkey Island: SE yesterday from XBLA. Of course, I don't play the HD version with the fancy voice-acting - I'm going old school, all the way

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Fallout 3 is strange because you can go quite a while without any meaningful action buts its very addictive. Played about 6 hours so far and I feel I've done very little of the overall game.

^ Well, it's a typical Bethesda game. It's addictive as crack if you're into exploration. Not to mention the background lore and side quests.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'll never forget the day when my copy of FO3 locked up on me just after I'd acquired the awesome T-51b power armor in [location redacted to avoid spoilers] after I'd soaked probably 60 hours into the game and discovered almost every location in the Wasteland. The bug frakked up my save so I can't access it anymore, and of course this happened on the one time where I wasn't using multiple saves as often as I usually do. I lost almost twelve hours of gameplay.

I still haven't gone back to it since then.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've got Fallout 3 sitting there, and I've put in some serious effort (I played up to the missionary fort), but I've never really been able to get into it completely.

It's ok, and I can see why people dig it, but there is just something about it that I fail to connect with. I've had more fun and kept coming back more times to Obliviion or even Borderlands than with FO3.

Geez, that sucks man

I guess this is why I get so paranoid and always keep several backups on several storage devices for my solo RPG saves.

Edit: Currently playing some Reach Score Attack, Gruntpocalypse on Corvette
