Re: What are you playing right now?
I just finished playing Mass Effect 3. I enjoyed it, and whilst comprehend what all the shouting was about regarding the ending, have no strong feelings either way.

Went to play Skyrim, and not being able to find the disc, started to replay Metro 2033. Now THAT game is a failed masterpiece!

Re: What are you playing right now?
Played XCOM for a while, then went to GuildWars 2 for about 10 days. At Level 42 now, starts to get boring. Will switch back to XCOM, and next vacation at Christmas I will play SW TOR once it's F2P  :nod:

Re: What are you playing right now?
It is already free to play.  Free players get access to pretty much zero features though.

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[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?
In case anybody missed it in the "Steam Autumn Sale" thread, I'd like to point out To The Moon, the most beautiful, moving, and thoroughly incredible thing I've ever played.

And it's still on sale on Steam! Trailer here!

Re: What are you playing right now?
Been playing LA Noire after borrowing the XBox version from a friend.  Definitely loving the way the music brings the whole thing together and the general film noire (imagine that) feel of it.

 
Re: What are you playing right now?
Finally located all my old Gamecube games, so I've picked up F-Zero GX again.

I just have that one Master-class grand prix to finish and I unlock the final cup, dammit! :mad:

It's been driving me insane, just having that one grand prix I haven't beaten.

Re: What are you playing right now?
RIFT, Torchlight 2 and Borderlands 2 with friends, still fire up Skyrim every now and then, playing through Dragon Age: Origins again...also FFXII, since I finally have a CPU capable of running the PS2 emulator at good framerates (relax, I own the game and a PS2, it's just broken).

 
Re: What are you playing right now?
My RL friends got me into an MMO strategy game called Astro Empires, so I've been playing that since the new server opened last Saturday.

Cut-throat PVP while you're sleeping or away seems to be the only game mode, and taking a day's (or more) break could result in your bases getting farmed for credits. I'm probably quitting soon, after I curbstomp the guy who's been brutalizing the galaxy.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Oh hey, I remember Astro Empires.  It's pretty fun starting out and I liked the game mechanics, but yeah, persistent world PvP of that sort is pretty terrible.  Oops, power went out, or I got home late, or I forgot what time it was, or my internet connection derped, etc, now all my hard work is gone in an instant so that someone else can increase the size of his fleet slightly.  Urgh.

Zone 66, thanks dosbox

Also suffering slowly through what's probably the last mission of the first attempt at HLPX-COM3, trying to keep SpardaSon and Firespawn alive.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Planetside 2 cured me from WoT lately, but with only 2 gigs of RAM it seems to crash every couple hours. Slowly getting to the point of building a PC...

Crashing is totally not a game breaker though, I could easily blast 100+ rounds from my tank's main gun without paying a thing (just driving up to a reload tower or transport gets ammo to full at no cost), no repair costs (only a cost of spawning a tank, but playing carefully the resources regenerate before needing the next one), no feel of grind (competitive equipment from the start, no more firing at an enemy and damaging it for 30 seconds only to see it drive away)...

Lots of time (and space, it's possible to flank a mile wide front in this game) to use real world tactics (anything from ambushes to fire and movement to combined arms assaults) instead of going for a close range meatgrinder, realistic ballistics and no rangefinders which make it an art to shoot something a kilometer away.
The only thing I miss from WoT is the very realistic armor simulation they have there, in Planetside 2 it's only damage reduction depending on where the round hits to simulate varying armor thickness.

Other than that, slowly playing through Wing Commander Saga, with the Ancient-Shivan War next on the list. Working on TotT a few hours per week.

Sometimes an Open General campaign or two, modding that as well.

Alternating between Tropico 4 and Warhammer 40K: Space Marine. Neither for very long though. I have so little time that I'm playing like a casual gamer these days (yes, I hate that). No time for anything serious, like FS-related stuff (just some small tweaks here and there) or ArmA.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Just bought Deus Ex: Human Revolution for 5 during the Steam sale. Been enjoying it immensely, funny thing is I'm still not far from the beginning and FEMA is getting mentioned a lot. Of course I live in NJ so FEMA has been very active around hereabouts lately... :nervous:

Re: What are you playing right now?
Well, without spoiling, the role of FEMA in DXHR is very much intended to be faithful to the role of FEMA in DX1. DXHR can very much be played without having played DX1 but it is actually very consistent on many points.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Currently playing a lot of Saints Row The Third, for some reason. Also Endless Space.

I haven't played DX1... perhaps I should.
