The best thing about Fable 2: After you've left the game for a year's time because it got so darned boring, you'll have millions of gold that rolled in from your properties.

The latest Humble Bundle had this little game called Blocks That Matter. I'm so hooked. It's a really nifty little puzzle game.

PS3: Now playing Agarest Generations of War Zero. The original was somehow misunderstood as some kind of sex game (not that I have anything against those), while in fact it was a mediocre strategy RPG with the unqiue "soul breed" gimmick. That is, you played through five generations of main characters, each character wooing three female characters, one of whom would eventually become the mother of your next main character. However that may sound, it was pretty tame stuff.

Now we have the prequel, which is more of the same, only a lot less more of the same. You now only have two generations of characters and the maps for each generation seem smaller as well. Seems more like an expansion pack, but what the hey, wallets are deep, and more is good anyway.

I'm playing two games at the moment. On PC I'm playing "Blocks that Matter", the wonderful puzzle game from the last Hunble Indie Bundle. It's really addictive and I'm even tending to player levels again just to get the BMT (block that matters) and the star. Big recommendation from my side!



On PS2 I'm playing "Half-Life". I might not be the right person to judge it as I'm playing it for the first time, but I think this classic aged very well. A little to easy for my taste and the story isn't that innovative, but still good fun to play.

I'm in over my head... Skyrim, Saints Row the Third and Assassin's Creed Revelations all arrived in the same week (they should need no introductions). Plus I just got Fate/Extra for the PSP - an RPG based on a Japanese visual novel, Fate/Stay Night. What fortune that I have a week off from work now. But now you know where I went...

Did you complete the whole game? I got all "Blocks that Matter", but there are some levels where I'm not able to get the star in the end. And some of the bonus levels are that tricky that I have no idea how to beat them.

Yeah, I did beat the game and the Chocolate levels. I haven't collected all the BTMs and not that many stars, though. I did do some of the bonus levels that I had unlocked. I had to check YouTube how to solve the final chocolate level, though.

I'm going to start playing Star Wars: The Old Republic. Say goodbye, my desiccated corpse will probably be found sometime next year.

Playing through Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock with my wife. We have 1.5 sets left on dominate quest mode...if I never hear that Mr.Breeze song by Lynyrd Skynyrd I will die happy...

Does anyone else have the same problem as I have? I can't play just one thing...I have to play multiple games at once, or else I get bored too quickly but I could sit in one room for hours on end staring at a wall...maybe I am developing a sort of Gaming Attention Deficit Disorder...

I think I have that GADD as well. I have to have at least 4 different games running on my smartphone at any one period of time or I have to go scavenging through Android Market to find some new thing to mess with. I hardly ever play anything on my PC anymore though.

yay, I remember that you were quite a KotoR-fan back in the days like myself. I switched from PC to PS3 in 2007 and won't have the opportunity to play TOR. What makes this interesting is the fact, that it's the first storydriven MMORPG out there. And if you played Dragon Age: Origins or Mass Effect 2, you'll know how much impact this can have on a gaming experience. I would enjoy news and feedback on the game.

Actually, with the trophy card in my sig, you can always see what I have benn playing or on what game I am currently on. Yes, I became a trophy hunter. :Clap:

And as we approach 2012, my personal Top-3

1. Mass Effect 2
2. Batman: Arkham City
3. Yakuza 4

Disappointment of the year: L.A. Noire.....dull as hell but way too hyped. :Wallbang:

Usul, I have to say, get back to a PC, you don't want to miss this game. It's KOTOR 3, 4, 5 and probably 6. If you want to just ignore the MMO aspect and solo the game, you can even do that (missing out on a few things of course). While it's 300 years after KOTOR, you do get find out what happened to Revan (and certain other story lines get resolved too).

I can tell you what game I'm not playing currently, SpaceChem. Because I finally beat it. This year's off to a good start.

I am playing Gothic. I watched it 10 or 12 years ago while my friend played it in student's dormitory and i kinda liked it. So I finally grabbed the cheap copy and started playing it and now I like it even more. I wish everybody to have fun with dated games. 8)

PSP: Final Fantasy IV, complete with Interlude and The After Years expansions. So far just grinding FFIV, now that's a dated game.

I have to confess that I am still playing Godfather: Five families - but doing pretty well. I am in the top crew in Cuneo family with an important role as coords guy. DAmmit! I should never have started it - it is amazingly addicting!

I started to play The Blackwell Legacy, the first game in a series of four. It's an old-school point-and-click adventure game. In 2D, with hand-crafted blocky pixels, but at least with full speech.

There's just one thing that bothers me with this, just as it did in The Longest Journey: why are these game so talkative? More clicking on pixels, less clicking on dialogue options!

I believe we played Bestowers of Eternity at some point in here. That is part of that series I believe.
