I loved the new Tomb Raider... partially because I'm a big fan of Camilla Luddington who plays Lara. And yeah, FC3 is a REALLY fun game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Just started playing the Day Z mod for Arma 2, as well as Legend Of Grimrock. Am enjoying both...wish I could spawn near my buddy when playing Day Z, it's getting tiresome having to spend thirty minutes or so just trying to find him in the world.

Apart from SWTOR I'm playing Guns of Icarus and Civ5 with friends. Solo I took advantage of the Steam Autumn sale to get Papers, Please and The Stanley Parable.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

So I just plugged in my NES for the first time in three years because somebody on the internet dared me to play Ghosts and Goblins.

And I found out something. My NES still works perfectly, but I have four NES controllers and THEY ALL HAVE STICKY RIGHT BUTTONS.

Yeah, I know I could play a ROM. Eh. I don't wanna.

You need some rubbing alcohol, a box of q-tips, and a screwdriver. Your controllers will be as good as new. Cleaning your old hardware and software is the price that every retro gamer has to pay to play on the original hardware. It's worth it. And once you beat Ghosts 'n Goblins you can tackle Battletoads.

I just bought Sky Shark, R.C. Pro-Am, and Ironsword: Wizards and Warriors 2 last night. It took me 7 game overs to finally beat the first level in Sky Shark and then I promptly got a game over within a minute. I love NES games.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Just finished A Link Between Worlds. Fantastic game. It was well done and a really good follow up to A Link to the Past. I loved being able to get all the items right from the start (or as soon as money would allow anyways) and having access to the entire world map right away. But I did feel that some of the dungeons were a little too short. Still a great game though.

Have to get back to Xenoblade Chronicles now before more games appear. Too many games on my list require a lot of time to be devoted to them. I suppose it's a good problem to have?

Re: What games are you playing currently?

The only way I'm ever playing Battletoads again is if I can skip the surfing section. I'm all for hard but that kind of hard where you have to basically memorize ten minutes of pixel perfect timing is just plain stupid. Ghosts and Goblins is a little more reasonable, it's all about learning enemy patterns.

Now, Super Castlevania and Super Contra are very high on my radar.

Yeah, I generally agree with that. Most people haven't made it past level 3 (the hoverbikes) of Battletoads, but I've made it to level 9. That's not because of skill; it's because I've memorized enough of the game to get there relatively easily. Battletoads isn't hard; it just requires grinding.

Ghosts 'n Goblins is legitimately hard.
