Re: What games are you playing currently?

Started playing Fire Emblem: Awakening on the 3DS. It's the first one I've played in the series and although it's still early in the game, I'm enjoying it so far.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Diablo 3 on PS3. Good to finally get the chance to play it. Originally intended to buy it back when the PC version came out but was put off by the DRM on it.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

The recently released Age of Wonders III has caught my eye, but I don't want to pay $40 for a game in a franchise that I've never played before. So I bought the first Age of Wonders on GOG for $2.99.

It's getting harder and harder to justify paying $60 for games these days.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I joined a game rental service called Boomerang games, I don't know if there are similar services elsewhere, I also have PS+ and I rent most games now. I still buy some games but for the most part that's how I get most of my gaming in nowadays. Hard to justify the pricetag of major games nowadays.

BTW if anyone wants to join if you would be so kinda as to let me send you the recommend a friend thing I get a free month out of it. Don't think you do but you do get a 3 week free trial.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm starting to get back into MMOs again. The last I played was City of Heroes/City of Villains: Going Rogue, months before the community shut down and the servers closed.

I'm installing Marvel Heroes on my PC.

Hide and let him come to you.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I started playing Skyrim today. Not quite as obsessed with it as I thought I'd be, but it's still very early. It seems like it's off to kind of a slow start.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Did you have any experience with past The Elder Scrolls games going in?

I started a fortnight ago, got about 3-4 hours in so far, not really seeing how people as sucked in as they do.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

One thing I will say is that I'm used to my games having far better maps. I spend so much time wandering around just trying to figure out where I'm supposed to be going.

I'm no fan of WRPGs, but I certainly see the appeal. You play the games to get immersed in a huge open fantasy world where your actions influence the world around you.

Yeah, the models all look like upscaled 2001-2003 era games, the map is poorly planned out initially.

And you can apparently randomly piss off "important" NPC's by doing the side tasks they ask you to do, to the point where they try to kill you before the first save, and can't be killed.

I'm hoping it gets a hell of a lot better a few hours in, as it is now it looks like someone adapted Return to Castle Wolfenstein into a medieval RPG and didn't bother polishing it up.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Yeah, I was definitely expecting it to look better given how hyped up it was. Almost every game that I've played on my PS3 has better-looking graphics than Skyrim. The combat also feels really clumsy. Ignoring that it uses controls that I am totally not used to (R1 and L1 for combat feels weird to me), I never actually feel like I'm hitting anything. My arms just flail around and eventually the bad guy dies.
