    I'm pretty much at work all the time now, but I spend my wee hours at home playing Diablo 2 LOD and Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess on the Wii.

    Diablo 2... insanely addicting as always
    Zelda... very awesome adventure

    Well I was trying to play Star Wolves 2 because I had enjoyed the first installment despite the bad voice acting from the russian developer. Much to my amusement the voice acting in 2 was on a level so much worse than the original that I think my ears actually began to bleed.

    After 15 minutes of play I was trying to find a way to turn off the voiceovers so I could enjoy the game, unfortunately it's either listen to the remedial style 1st grade level non-english speaking voice actors or turn off the sound completely. I haven't played since the first night I installed it. I can only hope there's a patch or some mod at some point to fix the voice acting.

    Well, I started up a new game in Temple of Elemental Evil with the Circle of Eight patch installed, + the addon thingie.
    Some of the new content is a bit meh, but no bugs yet, so it's worth it really. When I played the Vanilla game, I had so many crashes I couldn't play the game properly.

    And I have to say, I really like this game now that it works. It's to bad Troika chose ToEE to bring to the computer (not that interesting), but I still really find it enjoyable, and I'm no lover of dungeon crawls usually. The combat just fuckin' rocks, and is often pretty challenging (though I think the difficulty could be pushed a bit in some areas). Unfortunately I hear the Co8 mod have a tendency to unbalance the game towards the endgame. Oh well.

    Once you get going with the game (finishing some of the boring quests in the starting town), I really think it becomes enjoyable. If anyone hasn't tried it, I'd really recommend it (with the mod to remove those pesky bugs) if you don't feel like killing yourself just thinking of dungeon crawls.

    ugh... i killed a hero, returned to pick up a thingy and hups, the hero is respawned. now, in itself not too bad, except seeing the hero sends you into a cutscene where you pretty much loose all your minions.

    also, you can only autosave, not really save yourself.

    typical for a console game, but sucky as fuck on pc.

    I just got a Xbox 360 about 1 month ago, because I couldn't get my hands on Nintendo Wii, it was just consistently sold out every week in my area for about 4 months, so I gave up.

    I've been playing the Xbox Live arcade which is pretty fun.

    Original Doom 4-player co-op and death match, online

    Fighting against people online in Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat 3

    Playing 4 person deathmatch Worms online

    Playing 4 player co-op original Nintendo Gauntlet online

    Playing Castlevania SOTN online

    Everyone of these games is through Xbox Live Arcade

    Other than that, I've been replaying Fallout 1 this week because I've been really hyped up over the Wasteland 2 news.

    I just finished the longest journey and dreamfall. TLJ was great lots of puzzles but the dialog choices didn't matter at all it was kinda annoying. Dreamfall was crap it was just one long cutscene with a few trivial puzzles. I hope the designers get the next one right.

    Weird, I'm playing TLJ now and Dreamfall is next on my list. I'm really enjoying it so far TLJ so far; I think after I finish Dreamfall I'm going to have to dig out all the old Sierra and Lucasarts games.

    well...TLJ and Dreamfall are one of the best Graphic Adventure games i have ever played on the pc . Mostly because of the Story and the Atmosphere .I agree that dreamfall was mostly like a long cutscene but the story and the twists were kinda interesting.btw...the Part in russia was the best part of the game in my opinion .

    damn...i think its time to actually replay both games .
