Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've been playing a lot of X3: Terran Conflict lately... it's easier to play now that I'm actually starting to make some good money rather than the few dimes here or there I was getting previously.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Just finnished Valkyria Chronicles (sans DLC, which I plan to get later when I've got a few more pennies) and Penny Arcade RSPoD ep 2. Enjoyed them both and wish they'd hurry up and do sequels. Don't have a PSP and don't plan on getting one for VC2, it was good, but it wasn't that good lol.

Well after completing Prince or Persia TFS i went out and bought POP the 2008 game, got it for £8, and again really enjoying it, seem to be going through a hanging from high ledges type game craving at present.
Good to see another PoP 2008 fan.

I'm actually thinking about getting tFS on the PC. But if it contains Ubisoft's horrid DRM I don't think I'll bother.
I can highly recommend POPTFS, i thought it was brilliant in the whole climbing and puzzle thing, I'm sure the DRM thing has been overcome now if you look about for it........plus just finished POP, brilliant game, not a fan of the combat though, that became somewhat annoying as i simply hate games that require you to learn combos for fighting....but i got there in the end, and what a novel ending.

Really did enjoy those two games.

^ Well to be honest, you could easily get through PoP (2008) by either learning one or two simple combos or just button mashing.

And yeah, I absolutely adore PoP. I loved the main characters, their interaction and wow... that ending.

Yeah the button thing worked but it became a war or attrition at times...

10 I get some hits.
20 It knocks me to the ground.
30 I miss the quick time event button,
40 I get saved
50 It gets its energy back.
60 Goto 10.



Good game though, loved the story, the music and the whole climbing thing was just brilliant, some of those heights you reached where phenomenal., and your right about that ending....brilliant stuff.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Yeah, it's an under-rated game, but it doesn't strike me as being "Prince of Persia", it just doesn't seem to have that style. Collecting all the light seeds was tedious, but I got there in the end. A WTF ending, but I don't mind. And how I enjoy the Concubine taunting me all the time.

Currently playing: Win Trek. That's a kind of old 80s/90s Trek game where you control the Enterprise ridding the Galaxy (represented as a 8x8 grid) of aliens.

On an old-school kick still, FFVI.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

"Alan Wake". It's not what I'd call brilliant but I'm enjoying it for the most part. Running through the forest can get a little tiring, mind you, and I hate Alan for not learning how to use pockets (I've lost count of how often I've needlessly started out with no flashlight and/or weapons).

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I am currently playing through Ultimate Doom. I have been reading a book about the history of Id Software called "Masters of Doom: How Two Guys Created an Empire and Transformed Pop Culture", and I just had to go back and play it again. I am using the Chocolate Doom source port for the authentic old-school experience.

I'm playing Nethack again after a break of about 8 years. It's still fun.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I downloaded Snoopy Fighting Aces (or something, I forget) on a whim, and played it for about an hour. It is not very good, I don't recommend it.

I got Danger Joe from the PS store last week and I gotta say it's a very entertaining game. Pretty good value for $15.

Civ IV. Once you start playing, you just can't seem to stop.
