Re: What are you playing right now?
Playing the **** out of Black Mesa, with a few DotA 2 games every now and then.
BM is incredible, definitively worth the wait. A bit difficult compared to the original Half-Life, but I don't mind the challenge, nor the more advanced AI.
Other than that, my DotA-fu is a bit rusty for now.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Just finished To the Moon, following Scourge's enthusiastic endorsement. Didn't quite bring me to tears, but it was really good nonetheless. A nice change of pace from most other games.

Re: What are you playing right now?
I take it all back. Dark Souls is a piece of piss, Daggerfall is the real challenge!
If you hit it and it bleeds, you can kill it. If you hit it and it doesn't bleed...You are obviously not hitting hard enough.

From some youtube videos I watched, it would seem that it's important to have some sort of teleportation spell. The dungeons are all randomnly generated (pre-generated, not procedural), so apparently it's possible to have a dungeon from which you cannot escape. Though it's possible the player in question simply couldn't find the secret exit, but the player has been playing the game for years and years so I would assume they know what they're talking about.

Re: What are you playing right now?
You were right about the 'Real Barenziah'. Considering the most profane term I've heard in elderscrolls to date is "Milk Drinker", reading such a...'descriptive' text honestly caught me by surprise. Moreso because it was in my starting inventory.

It sort of tells a story regarding the decline in maturity of gamers over the years.

Also, finished Dishonoured tonight. Much fun was had.

Oooh, I've been thinking about getting that. Do let us know if it's actually effective. And if it teaches to actually read music notation.

 
Re: What are you playing right now?
Well, new Gundam Vs DLC, so back to playing that for a while.

Arios + GN Archer. So we now have all four Gundam Meisters playable. Arios itself is kind of meh, but a FANTASTIC harassment suit.

Other new suit is the Strike Noir. Now THIS one is badass. Very mobile, versatile, and can string together some amazing combos. I'll be using this one a lot.

reading music, no.  the notes work just like guitar hero/rock band, scrolling "noteway" color coded for the strings.  very similar to tabs.  reading music isn't hard at all though, and you should easily be able to teach yourself that part just by buying a music theory workbook from your local music store. 

i'd recommend demoing it if you can find a way to do so.  i have it on PC because i don't have a console and didn't want to buy one for pretty much just this.  i've noticed a little bit of input lag on the PC version.  hopefully i'll be able to work it out eventually, because you can imagine the problems this might cause.  but being as how the original development was for the consoles and the PC port was released a year later, i'd say there's reason to believe the console ones may be better optimized and less likely to lag.

Re: What are you playing right now?
I been playing Men of War with the Dynamic Campaign Generator mod, thinking of doing sort of a LP with people volunteering to drive a tank or artillery piece into battle.

Yes, i do play with mostly tanks, rarely any infantry.

If there's interest in a LP, i'll put up a topic and see if i can find Fraps again :)

Re: What are you playing right now?
Recently finished: Spec Ops the Line (Thanks Battuta for the tip) ... one of the few retail games to have a story that compares to Transcend as far as mind bending goes. ;)
Also: Dishonored... just all around gameplay awesomeness from beginning to end.

Right now... I'm digging into the the last two episodes of Telltales The Walking Dead ... incredible little game.

I'm playing classic Half-Life right now (well, as much as I would like to play the original Sierra disc version, the only thing I have on hand is a copy with the HD Pack [you know, hi-res people, Glock replaced with Beretta, MP5 replaced with M4, yadda yadda yadda], came with Blue Shift and Opposing Force). I was a bit pissed with the "laser tripmine staircase deathtrap" in On a Rail being gone in Black Mesa, but I let it slide.

Ahh... reminds me of the day I was playing OpFor multiplayer with my friends during down time. (Now I just have to wait for the remakes of the Gearbox expansions, last I heard the two groups banded together a few months ago, and they post periodic progress.)

On a less serious note, I tried to play Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000, I apparently am too much of an idiot to get a Concorde off the ground (it was for a transatlantic flight training mission, London to New York).
