Title: What are you playing now?
Post by: Superman on February 03, 2008, 08:22:54 AM
Post the game you're playing right now.

I just finished Shadow of the Colossus.  I would highly recommend it.

Right now I'm playing Mega Man Anniversary Collection.  I previously beat the first set of bosses on I and II, but not the whole game yet.  Now I've jumped up to VIII.  It's really fun to see how the game advanced but still retained a lot of the basics.

I'm playing Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds (2003) on the Xbox. Is good. Has Spike and Faith, the two best characters the series gave us.

Technically I'm still playing Final Fantasy VII. 


But I'm always still playing Final Fantasy VII.  That game has put me half a decade behind everyone else.  When I'm done, I plan to play Prince of Persia - the Two Thrones.  Then Final Fantasy X.   And some King of Fighters.  That's how behind I am.

Then I got Asterix at the Olympic Games for PC. It was cheap, I used to love the comics when i was younger. Pretty decent game :-)

Oblivion the Elder Scrolls.  I started over and now I'm in Shivering Isles doing everything.  I put a lot of stuff in Shadowmere, and then I installed the new expansion packs I had, and everything was lost.  :P  Start over collecting cool enchanted items.  Fun stuff.

Also re-installed Painkiller: Gold Edition.  Good stuff, a bit repetitive, but you have to have fun with how you kill them.  Stake gun + haste = awesome.

I'm waiting for Fable 2, and other games not as important because I don't recall what they were.

I too still walk the fields of WoW. I know, some say its done, but I still find it reasonably enjoyable.

I'm looking around at other pieces of online crack however. EVE Online is great, but complicated and can be somewhat boring.

Exactly the same with me, but I think it was also the online capability that gave the final push to purchase. Considering when I bought it I was still at school, it was a fair amount of money to me at the time. If only I could find my cd key  :'(

Also, Professor Layton and the Curious Village, I recommend everyone go play that.

I just finished FFIV. Good stuff. Now I'm on Soma Bringer - I've now been getting into games NOT released here but people have COMPLETELY fan translated so it's like an awesome game noone knows about but you ROCK as you beat it.

PM me if you want details. I have a fighter with 300 characters from every anime, they cant release it here due to licensing.

Scribblenauts! Fantastic Little Game. Going to go play it now!

Currently waiting on the epic fail that Royal Mail (They are on strike, again) to deliver Risen. Risen is a Gothic (The PC Game not the architecture) style RPG.

Recently finished Batman: Arkum Asylum and Wolverine: Origins. Batman was great and Wolverine was better than the film. First time I have seen a film licence that was good let alone better than the film it is based on. I also am still playing Fallout 3 from time to time.

I also have Starcraft, Warcraft II and Warcraft III.

Anyone? :]

I miss the good old RPGs... I'm playing Master of Magic and Chaos Overlords. Going to re-install Morrowind. Considering buying Oblivion... but The Elder Scrolls just aren't smart role-playing. Obvious stuff is missing. Like how your reputation doesn't seem to affect how people react to you?

Also, thinking of re-installing X: Beyond The Frontier... mmmm... games...

So I had one of my Youth Group kids over the other night and we took out Super Mario Galaxy (wii) which I hadn't played in like a year... and I've found myself re-immersed into actually caring about this stupid game.   :fail:

right on... well what adds slightly to the cool level of it all is that my kids literally LOVE to sit and watch me play.  My 6-year-old says he is Bowser and my 4-year-old says he is Bowser Jr.... so they think they are fighting Daddy.

Mario Party.  Well, I didn't hate it.  But I was a bit like "can we go back to Guitar Hero now?" so it didn't rate highly with me.

Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Otter ☧ on February 10, 2010, 02:35:54 AM
The only time I LIKE Mario Party (and we currently have MP8 but I've had 5-8 over time) is when people are over at the house who aren't "video game people"... you know what I mean?

I have a strong disdain for typical board games - but I'll play Mario Party with a bunch of teenagers or adults at my house for HOURS and we usually end-up having a great time.

Take the "soda can shaking game" in MP8/Wii for example... how close can you get to a masturbation euphemism for the purpose of hilarity without actually going directly there with people whom you would otherwise NEVER go there?  Seriously.  Too funny.

I only ever played 8 I think, if that one was for the cube. It got stolen before I could decide whether I liked it or not.  :-\ It's probably for the best. I don't usually have enough people at the house to make use of multi-player.

Board games, eh? If you like your games to last FOREVER, try Runebound. It's super geeky and can require 2 days to complete. We've also got about a million Magic cards lurking around, as well as Zombies - the only table-top game that's mine.

I played the extensive demo. It's really, really good.
Since you brought us Minecraft, I now have to believe everything you say.
…yeah, this game is amazing in a simple way. Nothing to deep, but somehow..... it is.
Did you ever play Elite 2: Frontier? Famous old space game. Minecraft reminds me of this game—completely open-ended. You do whatever you feel like doing.

I think the aspect that seals the deal is the danger. If there weren't monsters out there; if you didn't have to seal yourself in a home or a tower or whatever you can imagine; if you didn't have to be careful about how you mine, I don't think it would be quite as interesting. Its simplicity is its beauty. It gives you tools, creates a world, and sets you free.

The more I discover, the happier I become with the game. I'm enjoying finding pumpkin fields and cascading waterfalls. I've caught a few glimpses of lava but it's not near my home.
