Re: What games are you playing currently?

Playing COD: Black Ops on XBOX 360. Also just got the Kinect accessory, and am having fun with the family playing Dance Central and Kinect Adventures. My wife is using the YourShape Fitness Evolved game, and says it is loads better than anything on the Wii. She likes the freedom from a controller and balance board. The kids love Kinectimals too, and find it super easy to use.

Not thrilled about the lack of Netflix support, but I figure it's coming. Have used the video chat to talk to the in-laws in another state, and we really like not having to clamor around the small laptop screen and camera.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

^ Sounds like your family fits right into the target audience

Still re-playing The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - about 70 hours in, so this playthrough should last another 50 hours or so. Probably a lot more though, as I haven't spend much time on exploring yet.

MechCommander 2 is a lot of fun. I wish they'd make another one.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Playing Recettear, which I got as part of the Indi Story Pack at the Steam sale. This game alone was worth the $5. Quirky humour and an original concept.

Rather challenging and frustrating in its own way, though.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Near end of Fallout 3 main story but I hear Broken Steel DLC is set after the main story...

Does this mean I can carry on doing side quests (picking up new oens as I go) and other DLC after?

If you complete the story without BS installed, the game ends. You then have to install the DLC and reload your last save, which may mean doing some (or all) of the final mission again.

If you already have it installed when you finish the story, you wake up 2 weeks after the end of the final quest, and you have the entire wasteland open to you, to continue exploring and looking for side quests. You'll also then be able to start the BS missions whenever you want.

The other four DLC will just open up new locations, to give you access to them, as and when you install them.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

^ Cheers

Am itching to finish the story off


I assume thats near the end of the game so after that since I have all the DLC installed, I will do all the DLC and any other sidequests I can find + explore rest of map.

I will probably play it a 2nd time in 2011, need a break before I do a 2nd more evil playthrough. I will also pick up New vegas between Spring & summer because it looks like it needs patching between then and now.

Fallout 4 please hurry

I'm 45 hours into my first NV playthrough, and the only problem I've encountered is the occasional game freeze. No game-breaking glitches (or minor glitches, actually) to report. Touch wood.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Both it and Medal of Honor were on sale a couple days ago, but I decided to go with BC2 since I played BC1 a couple years ago, and since MoH has been getting some pretty mediocre reviews.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Started DLC point lookout on Fallout 3, wish I read forums first at the warning about how a bunch on inbred redneck yokels can cause me major damage with a simple shotgun despite top of the line armour and withstand a brutal beating with my weaponary that takes down super mutants in mere seconds.

Might do other DLC and come back to that one last since its open ended and not a focus mission plot.

The Lever-Action Rifle is your best friend. Point Lookout is fucking brilliant.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

So, having run out of my A games, I started something I got for $5 at Target on clearance... Star Wars Clone Wars Republic Heroes. It's not terrible but it's not great either. I can't stand how damn tiny the characters are on the screen. It does have 40 missions though so at least I'm getting my money's worth. But they're short, I think I've done 10-15 in just a few hours.

I've been playing Forza Motorsport 3 this afternoon. I really enjoy it.
