    System Shock 2 - I almost had a heart attack when by a strange twist of fate the chair I was sitting on collapsed with me while playing.

    I've been playing the Sims 2 for about 6 hours, between today and yesterday.

    I discovered CS:Source about a month back and am having a blast.
    Vampire the Masquerade:Bloodlines is pretty good too. I've also just finished the awesome experience that is Hitman Blood Money.


    Satisfying.

    Just finished playing Beneath A Steel Sky.

    Damn, this game was awesome.

    And a huge inspiration for Fallout, in the ending levels, methinks.

    I remember reading about this game near its release. Seemed awesome, and I was gonna get it, but I never did. Since then it has popped up in conversations and forum posts here and there, and each time have I said to myself "I'm gonna play this" but never gotten around to it.

    Damnit!

    Maybe I should look into it now...

    You can also get the full CD version + emulator at the ScummVM site:

    http://www.scummvm.org/

    The emulator is also a great program to have when you get the urge to play old LucasArts games.

    Dude, I've been playing so much goddamn Sims. It's crazy.

    I also did a level of R6: Vegas today.

    Overlord. The consoleness is a negative point for sure. However, Dungeon Keeper meets Pikmin? The positives outweigh the negatives for me.

    WOW. I need something MMOy to do until Pirates of the Burning Sea is released.

    KOTOR 2.

    Captain Blood. For some strange reason I have had the words "Upcom Activated" rattling around in my brain for a while now.

    Thanks for the tips about Beneath a Steel Sky guys. Looks I will finally give it a try. :P

    Found a cheap used copy of FFXII yesterday and bought it. These types of games are weird to me because there are usually about a thousand things about them that I really dislike.
    But I do think they're good at keeping the player interested through storytelling.

    Hopefully it will be enjoyable all in all.

    X-Com Apocalypse on my main box, and Discworld on my laptop.

    Both rather tricky :P

    Wasteland on my shity laptop also trying to finish up FEAR whenever I get home. Is quake 4 worth playing? I got the two for one deal when I bought stalker but I don’t know if the AI is going to match up to my exceptions.

    The soldiers from FEAR reminded me somehow of Half-Life. Better than Quake 4, that's for sure.
