Whooo I'm one happy boy... New HOMM stuff.
Well, WoG/ERA II are just temporary solutions, VCMI http://forum.vcmi.eu/portal.php is the holy grail of HoMM 3 fans, still quite a lot to be done though
Company of Heroes 1, Fallout 1 FIXT, Fallout 2 RP, Sniper Elite Nazi zombie army 2.
Some Company of heroes 2 as i'm going trough the campaign.. Some Dota 2 whenever i got nothing els to do and every now and then some APB Reloaded.
Was going to finnish off everything in Metro last light but then i stumbled upton the Developer Pack and i kinda rage quit for a whilt there.. Damn me and my urge for 100% completing games..
Playing Black Mesa right now. Good enough to keep my attention so far and making me want to finish it. So that makes it great in my book. Haven't had that in weeks. I quit Blackguards, a replay of Witcher 1&2(though I plan on trying again) and some others before that.
I do miss the original music and voice acting in black mesa though. The only iffy bit about it for me besides the obvious one where the ending is missing and they aren't even bothering to work on it, opting to port the entire game to a new engine apparantly. Source 2 or some shit. Otherwise we'd have it by now I'd wager.
Fallout New Vegas and The Sims 3 (to keep my creative mind in a good state).
The Titanfall beta is... ridiculously, stupidly fun.
The only Sims I tried was Sims 1, and God I hated having to wipe their little arses every 5 minutes.
That's why I only build houses.
Playing some pokemon red with 70k fellow twitch users and slowly descending into madness.
Main niggle for me is that, mostly because the HECU marines sound like someone doing an impression of a shouty man rather than the really weird yet cool robotic voices they had.
Chugging through Arcanum trying to complete it a second time. Yeesh they don't make it easy for techs to do it fast.
Finished Black Mesa. Looking forward to fighting the aliens in Xen.
Afterwards replayed the first mission of Dishonored, intent on finishing it.
But I was also interested in Morrowind, so I installed that too and wanted to try it out.
And holy shit I have no idea why but I am loving this game.
Fallout: New Vegas mostly at the moment. Fixing bugs using all kinds of programs is kind of satisfying.
Finally playing Fallout 3 after so many years of putting it off...
Is it fun? Sure. Better than average? Yes. A worthy sequel? I can't decide.
Like many here have said it's wonderful if you just pretend it's an independent PA-RPG made by Bethesday on it's own.
The Vault Dweller
Playing Icewind Dale 2, and this time i'm going to finish it. Wanted to solo it, but the game is just not made for solo, even the npcs characters refer to you as "you and your party", even though you're alone. So i'm doing the next best thing - duoing it: an Illusionist mage and a half orc rogue/barbarian hybrid. The game is really harsh at the beginning, but at least now i'm starting to really kick ass with illusion and deception. With a higher level wizard you can dispatch armies of opponents, but if you're not careful they will skin you in an instant, so it's a beautiful game as far as difficulty and tactics is concerned. Although it's quite linear, it still gives you different options time from time, like for example their is an altar that was corrupted by a Bane Cleric, but you can purify it only if you're a priest of illmater, other times you get an option to kill one or the other party, or not kill at all. Some parts that were too difficult for me, i managed to sneak past with illusion spells.
I think it's better than the people label it to be - "diablo on steroids" , it's just that after playing nwn 2 or bg 2 they go in with the same expectations, but that's doing yourself a disfavour, because one is missing out on the best part of the game: combat (which is much better than in later mentioned games), by concentrating on the lack of npc banter and superb story (though it's still pretty decent). The only game that tops it in terms of combat is temple of elemental evil, but beyond combat it's a pretty big mess, even after all the mods, which is a huge shame...
Wish there were a new breed of D&D games on the market (meaning games with D&D rules, not some shitty hack and slash turd), because i keep replaying them on and on without even the slightest concern about the new games that are on the market...
Elder Scrolls online beta.
I didn't have sky-high () expectations, but even then it's a bit of a let down. They took Skyrim, sprinkled some WoW on it, added a crapton of bugs (seriously, 3 crashes in 4 hours) and made it multiplayer, and that's basically it. Nothing in the game stands out in any way (contrarily to, say, The Old Republic which at least had a persistent story going its way). I heard the PvP is a standout, but IMO PvP in MMOs always sucks so I don't care much.
For me, it's most definitely not worth the 60$ + sub they ask for.
The current beta is an older version and it has already been mentioned.. And even if i didn't like the beta at first i got a bit addicted.. But the price is the big make it or break it for me. Not sure if i want to toss out so much cash now that i'm unemployed for something i really don't wanna stick with as i actually HATE mmo's due to it taking up to much time.
Playing Stick of Truth, very hilarious game, 5 hours in right now. And this is from someone who had fallen out of love with South Park a long time ago.
