What games are you playing?
Besides Freespace that is. Unless you want to list it.
Yeah, I know, pointless thread. But it can be fun.

I started up Homeworld1 a while ago, and started to play through that but stopped for a bit on the Cathedral of Gadesh (with those cool multibeam frigates) when I got super busy with work.

Instead I'm playing Xcom2 TFTD. Steam is good for one thing at least, cheap classics for 5 bucks.
Just launched my first pair of Colony Assaults, though taking losses. Sucks without MC trained peeps, but at least I got Disruptors. At each base I only came in with one, but after the first level of the first base there were 14 or so lying around so I managed to acquire a few more (ridiculous).

PC Games: Prince of Persia Sands of Time, GTA III, Medal of Honour: Allied Assault, Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow, Splinter Cell Chaos: Theory,  Procyon Insurgency (FSOpen).

Xbox 360 Games: PES 6, Juiced 2, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, Halo 3.

That's just at the moment- I still have a few others games installed on the PC that I have yet to play, (i.e. Babylon 5 IFH, X2 The Threat.....Just the ones I can remember at the mo').

Damnit Davros, stop scaring the **** out of us.

Anyway, Linux doesn't offer much in terms of entertainment so I'm just playing small games that come included with gnome and now and then I fire up some random freeware game that happens to be in Gentoo's repository or that Wine doesn't complain about too much.

Jesus ***ing Christ, the combat in Sands of Time was PAINFUL.  I ended up using some checkpoints online to skip some of the fight sequences they were so bad.  Keyboard-mashingly unfun is what every single fight sequence in that game was.  Of course, it depended on combos, which, of course, were derived from a console.

I haven't been able to find Pandora Tomorrow though I do want to play it.  Where'd you snag a copy?

As for the topic of the thread, I just finished the original Homeworld and I'm eagerly awaiting my Homeworld 2 ebay purchase to arrive in the mail =)  I also play Fortress Forever (a HL2 mod) quite frequently.

Keyboard Mashing??? I use a joypad/gamepad!  :P Although the camera angles during fight scenes can be a PITA!    :mad:

I bought Pandora Tomorrow from GameStation! Dunno whether you've heard of it, small compared to Game, but better prices and older pre-owned consoles etc. (the local one is still selling second hand Master Systems & Mega-Drives). Pandora Tomorrow comes on 4 cd-roms rather than the one DVD-rom that comes with Chaos Theory.

Actually I think the combat in Sands of Time would be fantastic if it wasn't for the silly artificial difficulty they used. By the time you get to the end of the game half your moves are totally worthless because the enemies will just block them.

Keyboard mashing will get you nowhere with it, though. You can get some pretty fluid fights going even in the later areas if you know what you're doing.

People like to **** on Warrior Within, but the fact is it's not that bad of a game. The combat is the best in the trilogy, the Dahaka chases are great and the story had some pretty cool ideas. It's just a damn shame its immaturity buries most of these redeeming points under layers of mascara and metal thongs.

On topic, I seem to be replaying the entire Baldur's Gate trilogy at the moment.

Absolutely. I only finished it for the first time a couple of weeks ago, actually.

To be honest I was a little underwhelmed by the ending, but I suspect that was thanks to how I went about it. All the same, yeah, one of the finest narratives I've had the pleasure of playing through.

I believe there are multiple endings, yes, though I've never actually played it myself.

 
Re: What games are you playing?
    I dunno about the rest of you but when I play a game I play I'm addicted for like, a week or two and then I drop it entirely for like a year. I guess not everyone's like that since a lot of people are listing 10 games or more.

Re: What games are you playing?
I am playing various multiplayer co-op games with my brother these days, whenever I get time for gaming anyway. At the moment, we're going through Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory's co-op campaign, which is fairly long and adds a lot to the already top notch game. It ties into events that take place during the singleplayer campaign and is generally of a similar level of quality.

We're also playing C&C3:KW fairly often. These games can be quite hilarious when a lot of AIs are playing. We typically play 4v4s with the AIs making up the other spots. I would like to play the older C&C games too, but they only support IPX (even TS, a 1999 game) and we haven't been able to get that working through Hamachi. I was at my parents' place last weekend though and they were great fun over a serial link, especially with various mods.
