Re: What games are you playing currently?

All right, I have decided that Mass Effect 2 will be my new game. I did a little research, saw that Claudia Black is apparently a voice in that one, too. AND I saw Yvonne Strahovski!

Both of my favorite Australian actresses in one video game!

Claudia Black actually voices a couple different characters, though you'll probably only recognize one right off the bat (I didn't know about the others until a friend told me ). But Yvonne Strahovski's character plays a major role.

Enjoy! The ME games are some of my favorites.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Unfortunately, I won't be able to play the first one since it isn't on PS3, but this should still be fun.

Yeah, that does suck. Oh well, at least they added a "digital comic book" that will let you choose the most important decisions in ME1.

It'll be fine. I mostly just need something to pass the time until Arkham City comes out next month.

^If you really want it, I think the windows version is only a fiver on Amazon...and a tenner on Steam for some bizarrely counter-intuitive reason (not having a box is twice as expensive now?)

Though you can't transfer your save to your PS3, I think there are some tools out there that'll let you recreate your custom face in ME2 and IIRC the PS3 version has a little intro comic thing that lets you pick and choose the "big" decisions from ME1.

..incidentally, today I have been playing Mass Effect!

Yeah the fact that Yvonne is in the game is totally awesome. Make sure you play with a male character so you can hook up with her character.

Btw, ME2 is totally awesome.

Doesn't do me much good on my MacBook. Plus, I hate playing games on computers.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I recently got my hands on Deus Ex: Game of the Year edition for the PC and I've been having a blast with it, although it's definitely not a game for the impatient, especially if you choose to go with a stealth build I'm absolutely loving it though. Human Revolution is definitely on my to-buy list before the year ends.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I recently revisited Sid Meier's Gettysburg and Sid Meier's Antietam. Fun stuff: I'd forgotten how much fun it was to watch little brigades of men shooting at each other. The interface is too mouse-dependent for me, though. (I'm always having to move the mouse to the top of the screen, wait for the menu options to appear, and then click around to get what I want. Breakway games improved this when they adopted the engine for Waterloo and Austerlitz.



My initial troops, having driven off an opposing rebel force, are now being slightly outmaneuvered by reinforcements. (That was my doing, as I diverted a regiment to destroy the rebel artillery. This left my lines short.) Fortunately I have a brigade of fresh troops of my own. Together my two brigades will utterly ruin the slaver adversary.

I never got around to playing anything over the long Labor Day weekend, but I'm planning to start Mass Effect 2 this Friday.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I´m playing Castlevania:Lord of Shadoes on the xbox 360 and Torchlight on the 27" iMac (so great display ). The next game i´ll get will be probably Gears of War 3 or Deus Ex.

Just started playing Warhammer 40K: Space Marine on PC. Really fun so far!

Playing Space Marine on PS3. Had to restart after I realised that I'd not been playing on my profile.
