Playing through Borderlands for the first time. I now understand why everyone talked about how addicting it is!

^ Yeah Borderlands is sooo much fun. And I'm not even a fan of first person shooters.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've spent several hours this past week playing the Xbox live arcade version of Spelunky. It's addictive and with the randomly generated maps I don't get tired of it very easily.

I'm also still playing Birds of Steel. I'm having a blast playing in simulator mode. Finally cleared the Battle of Midway stages after about a dozen attempts. Has anyone else here played it? It's a fantastic game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Well, I haven't played it, because I don't own a console (I just have a PC, and a rather old one, at that), so I don't really know about Birds of Steel, but I'm a big fan of flight simulators. I've played many... Battle of Britain II, IL-2 Sturmovik 1946, Lock On: Modern Air Combat, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004... and my favorite in fact are WWII combat flight sims. Really fun. In fact, alongside point&click adventure games, simulators (mainly flight sims, but also realistic racing) are my favorite genre, of course, I like games from many different genres, but if I had to choose an actual favorite genre, it would be these two.

They have a steep learning curve, but once you've started climbing up the curve it's really fun. IMO it's even better with a joystick (the only way to play on full realism, that's how I play, with a really cheap one, €5). I assume the analog sticks of the console controller serve the purpose, though.

If you need any flying tips, just ask. Salute, fellow pilot.

I'm doing pretty good outside of those pesky aircraft carrier landings...

I've been using a controller (which works well enough), but It is compatible with several flightsticks. I'm going to pick one up sometime in the next month.

I used to play some of the Microsoft games, but it's been many years since I've picked up a flight sim.

It is a really fun game, the ending is such a let down though.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Beat Arkham City on hard... got a new game plus going, also working on the riddle trophies... sweet jesus, there are just too many of them. But I'm still loving the game. Also booted up Arkham Asylum and started a play through on PC, I have the uhh... Platinum trophy on the PS3 version... whatever you get for 100%... and I think I'll do the same on the pc version. I really like those games.

I played through Super Mario RPG. Fun game. Still need to find Grate Guy though.

I started playing through SC2 single player on Brutal again, I already have all the single player achievements... it's just damned fun. I don't know what it is with replaying games right now, I have so many new ones to try.

I also ran through Ninja Gaiden on NES without a single continue. Was a close one, third final boss had me down to one hit. I did have one extra life remaining, but seeing as dying at that point sends you to the very beginning of Act 6, I think the battle was going to be decisive one way or another.

Maybe next up in retroville are Mega Man 1 through 6, or Castlevania 1 through 3 on NES. I just have to stop being lazy, crack open the carts and give them a proper cleaning first.

I knew I wasn't going to have the patience to beat all the Riddler challenges, so I told my roommate to let me know when he beat it so I could see what happens. It's pretty fun; much better than what happens in Arkham Asylum: Really? I just got all these damn trophies, and my reward is hearing the Riddler get arrested on the radio? LAME!
