I'm not familiar with Twilight (she said proudly) , do you mean they sparkle? No Sim vampires in freeplay yet, I guess I could cope with sparkly ones even.
There are two kinds, the coffin sleeping, sun hating, blood drinking variation (harder to get and a lot harder to maintain) or "vegetarian" Vampires that drink cloned plasma from the fridge, sparkle in daylight and levitate above normal beds.

Both are ageless and have superspeed literally running 5 times faster than other Sims and turning into bats, but still.
Can they bite human Sims and kill them or turn them into vampires?

Both can, and depending on what you "feed" them, it turns them into one or the other.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

After a long break, I'm seriously back into Birds of Steel, playing through the second half of the Japanese Campaign.

I'm really impressed with the amount of content in this game. So many planes in the hanger, Two historical campaigns, and a ton of bonus maps and missions in every theater of the war.

After I finish the Japanese campaign, I'll have a chance to finally play the Battle of Britain DLC pack.

NFS Most Wanted, not the 2012 one.

I don't play enough games that buying a brand new computer would be a reasonable investment.

^ Makes sense, my PC is also a bit on the older side.
I do all my gaming on my PS3.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I don't play video games at all frequently these days, but I did pick up Sleeping Dogs on sale a few weeks ago.

Man, I haven't had this much fun playing a game in a decade or longer. It's as funny and quietly subversive as Vice City or Anachronox from that era. I think it's the characters and storyline that make the difference for me. I haven't finished it yet (I'm really slow at playing through games), but did anyone else play it?

On another note, do any of you watch video games as (and I hate the word) eSports? I find myself tuning into a few Starcraft 2 tournaments here and there.

^ Yeah I loved Sleeping Dogs, such a fun game.

And nope, I don't watch any eSports.

As for what I'm playing, I'm still working on the Borderlands 2 platinum trophy... I just can't find Jimmy Fucking Jenkins.

I enjoy watching StarCraft 2 quite a bit. I even went to the NASL finals in Toronto a few months ago to see it live. I find myself watching the game even more than I play it these days.

Cool!

Yeah, I don't play it at all (only ever did for a short while) but enjoy watching it a lot. It's one of those games where the fun strategic elements only really emerge when players have superb core mechanics & basic macro, such that the strategy & micro can come into play. I'm simply not good enough at the basics - and not willing to put in the time to get good enough - to get up to even a moderately decent level of play. I'm a much more casual type of game player, and tend to prefer playing games that make me laugh.

Re: NASL Toronto; IIRC, that was the tournament where Stephano kicked playboy model Lauren Elise in the face during his victory dance.

WCS finals this week should be decent, but Dreamhack Winter will probably be more fun, I think. Some of the groups are nuts.

I wish Blizzard (or someone independent) would put together a proper World Starcraft Pro Tour, the way the ATP or PGA do for tennis or golf. All the separate organisations would still exist but would be part of a wider, more meaningful series of tournaments. That would really raise the profile of the game and create more of an ongoing storyline to each year with the associated hype and interest.

I've only got one more Achievement for Borderlands 2 and that's getting all the Pirate side missions, which is a huge pain since none of my weapons do crap against Master Gee the Invincible

Playing my first Xbox shooter- Black Ops 2. Doing better than I expected to, but I still prefer/ miss using a mouse and keyboard for that sort of thing. So much more precision.

Can you put up SW or Trek vinyls on any of the cars in the NFS franchise?



Cade Skywalker would look awesome on my car, so would the newest Enterprise or the Kelvin.

Playing Black Ops 2 and New Super Mario Bros. U

The former makes me want to bite and/or throw peripherals in frustation. The latter puts a dopey grin on my face and helps me relax.
