Re: What are you playing right now?
Trying to finish Call of Pripyat. Maybe then I can get into the Thief series.

i think i'm gonna make that my next game.  i really enjoyed the previous two, once appropriate bug fixing and head bobble removing mods were applied.  are you aware of any such must-haves for CoP before i start?  (not complete)
No, just using Complete. I do wish there was something that could optimize the **** out of the game. I mean come on. The slowdowns do not follow any logical pattern.

Other than that, I have a strong love/hate thing going on with the game. On one hand, I love how they carefully craft the oppressive, scary atmosphere and really make you feel like you're walking around a weirdass, hostile Pripyat. On the other hand, I hate that kind of atmosphere (I'm not fond of scary stuff).

Re: What are you playing right now?
i used complete on SoC, but honestly wasn't terribly fond of it.  certainly not to the degree of praise it gets.  it took too many liberties.  they made DRASTIC art changes, and not always good ones.  the game became unplayable at night.  i pretty much only used it for the bug fixes, which i couldn't/didn't want to figure out how to get alone.  some of the upgraded sounds were nice too though.  i played CS vanilla with a few minor bugfix mods i could find.  and honestly, i didn't miss the art.  it looked quite good on its own.

add to that, the brief searching i did suggested complete for CoP is a broken mess.
I like to stare at the sun.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Oh. I just installed Complete because there was so much talk about the SoC version of it and I just assumed that it'll be as great for CoP too. Oh well, just finished and uninstalled the game. Maybe I'll try it without Complete (and maybe with something else) in future.

Re: What are you playing right now?
I've been purposely staying far away from LOTR Online, because I know for a fact I could become horrifically sucked into that.  Hell, I originally played Spiral Knights just for a TF2 hat, and now I have who knows how many hours there.  And that's a game with a built-in daily limiter! :p

Yeah, same here. Only Spiral Knights wasn't for the hat, it was for the winter bonanza they had in 2011. Got myself a free copy of Half Life from it!
Been streaming this stuff for no apparent reason either. Gotta reduce the bit rate though on OBS. Lag less perhaps

Re: What are you playing right now?
I spent roughly 4 hours last night in FFXI just crafting. I'm trying to use up all the materials I've collected through my campaign, sell everything that's not bolted down for gil, and distribute it to my linkshell. THEN I can finally retire.

Sure, I could just sell everything to the NPCs, but I'd get a lot less for it. And if something's worth doing, it's worth doing right.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Currently Homeworld: Cataclysm. It has some of the best music and atmosphere I ever encountered in any game, but story, while not horrible, could be a bit better at times. The end of the campaign just feels underdeveloped.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Finished up the main story line of Saints Row the Third. I honestly didn't think I'd enjoy playing this game, I got in the THQ bundle, but I have to admit I'm having an a lot of fun with it. It has completely changed my mind about the idea of abandoning caution to the wind. It's so ridiculous that I can't help having fun. It also helps that the gameplay is pretty solid IMO.

Some people are like Slinkies.  They aren't really good or even useful for anything but they always manage to put a little smile on your face when you give them enough of a push down the stairs.

I just spent five days (not straight) on a single session of it. I'm quite impressed just how much time I put into just one session
Let's go again shall we! This time, perhaps less nuking and more peace

Re: What are you playing right now?
But nuking is fun! Despite the fact I've only dropped one twice for whatever reason.

I'm currently attempting to run that old Star Wars: Rebellion game because I have a mad desire to play something like it and it's better...ish, than Empire at War. It's not going well.

It's annoying though as the workers don't automatically clean up the ensuing Fallout. Honestly, that's what really bugs me
