Playing Endless Space, which is a great little 4X and is pretty much everything SOTSII wasn't: stable and fun.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Just got Diablo III and I'm enjoying it thus far.

Still playing Star Trek Online (But less and less often)

Been wanting to jump back into World of Warcraft especially with Pandaria on the horizion, but can't seem to make the time for it.

And of course I'm still wanting to pick up, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Now there's a game that I haven't played in way too long.

It isn't as deep and lacks the humour that made GC2 that little bit more special. GC2 is a better game, but Endless Space's more simplistic offering makes it easier to get into and play.

Damn it, this is making me wish Stardock would make a GC3 now.

I'm giving The Old Republic a try. It's ok, but I'd prefer an offline Old Republic game. (Yes, I won both the KOTOR ones, but an up to date one would be nice)

Picked up Catherine yesterday and am going to start that soon. I've been playing COD World at War. Today I've been addicted to this though...

Lego Batman 2 right now. I had gotten kinda tired of the Lego games, but my roommate picked this one up last week. I've only played it for an hour or so, but it's a lot of fun!

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Well I picked up a Sega Game Gear last weekend. Not really playing it because the AC Adaptor comes loose, I have no batteries, and the games suck anyway. Best use of $60 ever. Although I did almost buy a Virtual Boy for $120, so it could have been worse.

In other news, I did find a copy of Tomb Raider: Anniversary for the PC at a Value Village for two bucks. I've never played a Tomb Raider game before, but a critically acclaimed remake of the original game seems like a good place to start.

Why... why would you spend even 1 dollar on a Game Gear? Or on a Virtual Boy, for that matter.

As for me: Persona 4 Arena.

I'll give you all a moment to Google that.

No, seriously. I've never personally seen ANY mention of fighting games on this forum (I haven't posted much obviously, but I've lurked a fair bit). Am I the only one here who plays em?

Both systems may have been complete bombs, but there are a handful of great games that are worth playing. The $60 for the Game Gear included about 10 games, so it was a good deal.

Not a big fan of them, but I do enjoy fighting games. Guilty Gear is awesome.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I liked fighting games back in the day when people actually played against their friends...in the same room...with a second controller. Single-player fighting games are lame, and I don't like playing games online.

I'm pretty sure the last fighting game I played was Mortal Kombat 2 on Sega Genesis.

Playing through Dawnguard. This is my first return to Skyrim since finishing the main quests a couple of months ago.

Just got Tropico 4 from a Steam sale (under $20 for it and all the DLC) and will probably give that a go before the weekend is out.
