What are you playing?

Extraneous communication, genuflection, adulation, dissection and admiration should make its way in here.

What are you playing?

After some struggle I finally got DOSBox working and playing Quest for Glory 1 VGA. Other games I have played and finished these past months are Tales of Monkey Island, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall and half way through The Path. All from Steam.

Space Marine, Gears of War 3, A Game of Thrones: Genesis.

The first is great, loved the campaign and the multiplayer is very fun. The second is brilliant, the best game i've ever played so far, and the third is on its way to me now, hopefully it will be good.

I'm playing D&D Online a lot. Damn that addictive repeat-the-quest-on-a-harder-difficulty-to-get-more-loot dynamic!

When I'm not doing that, I'm playing stuff like Terraria and PuzzleQuest. Casual stuff really.

Oh, and I dusted off my copy of Eternal Sonata the other day, embarrassing my 14 year old son mightily in the process. Which, as any father will tell you, is a real result! :D

Medieval II Total War, Minecraft and Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning for me. Can you tell this isn't a good gaming machine I have? :roll:

Ooh, Minecraft too, of course. Don't worry, Xisor, I'm in the same boat. Warhammer Online (AoR) and Mass Effect 1 are the newest top-graphics games on my computer.

Hey, I'm playing QfG 1 from 1992, the remake of the 1989 QfG1. Not to mention the old Lucasarts games, from the time they were good, on the ScummVM emu. P&C, the olden way. New games mean nothing to mee. :)

360: Assasin's Creed, Bioshock, whichever Halo takes my fancy, Space Marine demo (I still can't decide if I want to buy the full 'un). PC: Homeworld 2 (Complex mod), Jet Set Willy, some of those ancient text adventures I used to love when I was a teenager (a lot are now available online).

Just got given a copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops, so it would be rude not to try it, but also just picked up Deus Ex: Human Revolution, so ought to play that too, if my duaghter allows it :?

I don't see why not. Get the feminist game of the year. :)

Played about an hour of Space Marine yesterday. Having spent 8 hours on the demo helped :D

Erm, Probably Red Dead Redemption here, as I've completed the Space Marine game. Looking to get GoW3, Assassins Creed Revelations, Fifa 12 and eventually Deus Ex at some point.

Oh and, as far as handhelds are concerned, it's Monster Hunter Freedom Unite on the PSP and The World Ends With You on the DS.

That is all.

I was playing Empire: Total War and Evil Genius before my computer died for no apparent reason.

I'm also making my way through Pottermore, if that counts as a game. It's certainly the most frustrating game I've ever played, but that's largely down to a cumbersome interface, ludicrously insufficient bandwidth and game-ending and unreportable glitches (on a beta, no less!)

Bought an Xbox Live Gold subscription the other day and busted out my copy of Halo: Reach (bought it for the single player, for a Halo based comedy fanfiction I was writing) and found myself having an absolute blast. Fallen in love with the jetpack class and generally flying around all over the place shooting things. Not too bad at it as well, for complete beginner.
