What are you playing right now?
We have plenty of threads in here for discussing individual games, but what we don't have is a catch-all thread for short blurbs about our current addictions.  So in the tradition of our favorite GenDisc threadnauts, have at it!

I'm currently working on the first-person survival horror title Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth.  It's a game that languished in development hell for a few years, which shows in some general clunkiness and mediocre graphics for its time, but damn does it present a fantastically creepy atmosphere.

Re: What are you playing right now?
I've been stuck in a Natural Selection 2 and Nethack rut most recently myself. I want to stop playing NS2 before I burn myself out of it so I can play more when they make more maps but it's too much fun. Nethack is a good time filler kind of game IMHO, but it's too hard to just sit through and play.

I'm splitting time between MWO and Defender's Quest, with a few minutes a day spent extracting myself from FFXI.

Re: What are you playing right now?
My computer can't handle MWO, so I'm stuck with World of Tanks for all my grindy goodness.  Playing Halo 4 on the side, and Left 4 Dead 2 whenever I've got enough friends on Steam to make it hilarious.

WoT, Civ V a little, going to go back to European Escalation instead of Civ V if there's any multi left, other things on occasion.

And MWO.

AirMech has recently made me it's *****, as the nostalgia value it carries from Herzog Zwei prevents me from leaving it alone.

Re: What are you playing right now?
i've been on a kick of the default windows games.  free cell, minesweeper, backgammon, pinball, etc.  i even have Hover!  someone really needs to make a modern version of that.

also, just about to complete a playthrough of RA2 and yuri's revenge.
I like to stare at the sun.

Hover is so much fun.

 
Re: What are you playing right now?
Some mods for Company of Heroes and Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion.  Killing Nazis never gets boring, especially in the final mission of the Brit campaign where you wipe out something like 32 Waffen-SS tanks as a secondary objective. :P

As for Rebellion, I'm mainly playing Sins of the Fallen right now until the rest of the mods get updated.

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: What are you playing right now?
I loved that mission in CoH. Finally getting around to finishing ME2, playing some World of Tanks and some Just Cause 2 silliness on the side. (got it for $6 lol) Been giving Minecraft a break.

Ys Origin (I swear, Toal's run is insanity with frequent hit-and-run tactic abuse), and The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky (seriously, 10 hours and I'm still on Chapter 1 thanks to all the sidequests and going to places I shouldn't have gone through without seeing if a board request had something relevant there).

Iji, a neat indie freebie with a graphic style that reminds me of Another World and Flashback.

It's a nice time sink if ya got nothing to do.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Easy to answer since i copy my latest games into a folder called current games, makes finding them easier
most of these have been completed but i keep them there to remind me to add them to windows game explorer which is a total pain and after about 300 games it stops working completely and wont add a game automatically (not that it always did in the first place)

Xbox 360 = Halo Reach
PS3 = Assassins Creed : Brotherhood
Android phone games = Galaxy on Fire 2, The Dark Knight Rises, Splinter Cell:Conviction.

I do not have access to a gaming PC or Laptop at the moment, otherwise I would be playing Diaspora: Shattered Armistice!  :cool: :yes:

ME3 Multiplayer and Borderlands 2 are occupying what little gaming time I have at the moment.

Just finished (FINALLY!) Deus Ex: HR. Playing a bit of Katamari Damacy when I have 5 minutes here and there. Not really starting on anything else just yet, finishing off the last couple weeks of University and somewhere in there doing a re-arrangement of my computer parts based on new parts I've found. After that, not sure.

Re: What are you playing right now?
At the mo, i am playing;
Brutal Doom: This is a sheer brillant mod for the original Dooms, it is just makes it so much more fun.
Star Wars Old Republic: This took me by suprise, i hate MMO's yet i like it as it can be played as a singleplayer game and has a good story.
Also Skyrim and Starcraft 2 every now and again.
