    That sounds about 10 times more fun than Minecraft :lol:;)

    I'm revisiting an old PC title that had gotten ported up to the Xbox 360....DarkStar One: Broken Alliance.

    It's a space fighter sim/open world RPG of sorts. Graphics and ship designs are decent, if uninspired. Dialogue is so so, and the voice work ranges from serviceable to truly amateurish. Space combat is okeeday, and the side missions are rather limited in scope.

    Still, it's not a bad way to kill a little time. :)

    I played that one on the PC a few years ago. It wasn't a bad game. Nothing really special though.

    As for what I'm playing now... still Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii (just passed the 100 hour mark), Fire Emblem Awakening on the 3DS, and Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy also on the 3DS.

    Plus Mario Kart and FTL whenever I feel like killing some time.

    List isn't getting any shorter... and it will have another entry next month when Hyrule Warriors comes out.

    Oh, DSOne Broken Alliance definitely isn't a bad game. Not great, but not bad either. As you said, nothing special. :)

    Oh, and I know this might be unrelated in the "what are you playing now" subject, but, Resident Evil's creator has finally decided to do a hi-def remake of the GameCube remake of the original Resident Evil for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. It is slated for early 2015. I'll be getting the PC and PS4 versions. For the longest time, the original remake was a GameCube exclusive, with the exception of a possible port up to the Wii. But, two or three favored games are not enough to warrant me getting another Nintendo product. I have a GameCube, and that's it...although I have a few games for it. Otherwise, it's $ony and Micro$oft for me...and Micro$oft has lost a lot of respect from me with their Xbox One debacle....so now, even though I have a 360, I shan't be getting an Xbox One...at least, not for the forseeable future. But I digest. All I can say is: It's about frakkin' time, Capcom! Now, do a hi-def remake of Resident Evil 0, 2, and 3: Nemesis! :)

    I got to the mushroom special world in Super Mario 3D World, and my god does the difficulty level spike! I may have lost twenty lives in worlds 1-8, but in these last two, I've lost easily double that!

    I hooked up my N64 last weekend and I've been playing through some older games that I never finished for some reason. Currently playing through Bomberman Hero and I'll most likely start Blast Corps when I finish with the White Bomber.

    Just started FF VI, really like it so far and I did some training in FF X. Been farming Ability and Speed spheres.

    Played some Tomodachi Life earlier and two of my characters, Reggie (Nintendo) and Olivia Benson (L&O: SVU) just had a little baby girl... might play some more of it tonight, along with some shiny hunting in Pokémon X.

    A little off topic, but anyone noticed the latest Steam update? I thought it was just a cosmetic GUI change but it looks like they've got account streaming working (I've tested it and I can now play Borderlands 2 in my living room!) and they're finally allowing multiple categories for the game library.

    Is it sad that I was more excited by the categories? Finally I can cross reference my titles! ;)

    They've also allowed for hiding games from your list, apparently.

    will have P.T to try and Watch dogs when I get home. Hear a lot of good stuff about the former, mixed things about the later

    Watch Dogs is a competent open-world action game. If you generally like the genre (let's say, you enjoyed Shleepy Dawgs, Just Cause, Prototype, Infamous, etc.) , you will definitely enjoy it.

    If one were to only play genre entries of the GTA franchise persuasion and avoid the genre otherwise, it might not be a great value because it is by no means a flawless game.

    Like Prototype and Infamous, Sleeping Dogs I played a little but didn't get in to enough to say one way or the other. GTA generally aren't my favourite games. Prefer something like Infamous or Assassin's Creed in my open world games.

    ^ You should enjoy Watch Dogs then!

    Been playing some Borderlands couch co-op on 360 last night. Still a great game for local splitscreen type action with the significant other. Once we're done with the main story, we might check out the DLC (we played all the DLC in BL2 thanks to the season pass), if we even get that far before BL: The Pre-Sequel releases in October.

    Finished Borderlands last night, still a very boring final encounter, still a great co-op experience overall :techman:

    I thought about picking up Watch Dogs yesterday, but I didn't. I am also a big fan of Infamous and Assassin's Creed, so I figured I'd give it a shot. Maybe later this week.

    No matter where you go, there you are.
    I bought Shadowrun Returns on Steam recently (thanks to RobMax for introducing me to Steam with Machinarium, solid game) and thorouhgly enjoyed playing through the "Dead Man's Switch" campaign.
