Hi all,


It's so quiet here in the forums! To inject some energy and conversation, I pose the following question:

What games are you playing these days (Mac, PC, consoles)?

For me, it's been (in no particular order):

1. X-COM: Enemy Unknown
2. DmC: Devil May Cry
3. Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
4 Swat 4 Gold Edition (about to install and play)

The Book of Unwritten Tales (Mac, Steam)
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition (Mac, Steam) > Thank god this Wineskin crap cost me only 1,99 € during the winter sale, I still have to find a wrapper version that doesn't crash all the time
Trine 2 (Mac, Steam) > very, very beautiful game, plays perfectly with my wireless 360 controller

On hold:
Psychonauts (Mac, Steam) > waiting for the announced next patch that fixes the remaining gfx glitches, but the game is Mac native now, they ditched the Cider wrapper last year.
Mass Effect (PS3) > crap port, bad performance, ridiculous cover system! Gameplay wise, ME2 + 3 are so much better, the game really hasn't aged well.

Next:
Uncharted 2 (PS3) > bought it ages ago, never came around to actually play it
The Last of Us (PS3) > my most anticipated game of the year

Mostly Borderlands 2, but slowly coming to an end with that.
Legend of Grimrock
Minecraft

Some Castle Crashers and Awesomenauts.

Up next:
Saints Row 3 (PS3)
Heavy Rain (PS3)
The Witcher 2 (Mac)
Drakensang (Windows)
LEGO Batman 2 (Mac)
X-COM (Mac, when it's released)

So many games, so little time... :bleedingeyes:

Doom 3 and Neverwinter Nights 2 on the Mac... But I got hit by a cab yesterday while on bike, and got an open bone fracture, so I'll be stuck with my iPad at the hospital for quite a while... So I'll play all those small games I've downloaded, but haven't had time to try yet.

Playing Bioshock 2, but things are nuts so I only get in between 1 and 3 hours a week. (Say, does anyone know if there's a way to order my plasmids? Whenever I change one I have to relearn which FKey  the game has assigned to each one.)
Occasionally I try to solve a few more puzzles in A Fool and His Money.

On iPad, I'm playing bouts of: Riven, Agent Higgs, The Blockheads. And every day I do 2 Words with Friends moves, playing games against my dad and my daughter.

Many other games in my queue, most of which I'll never get to.

Not to derail the thread, but yes:
Go to a gene terminal.
Click on the plasmids row to get that active.
Click on the first plasmid slot, then select from the right, what you want there (can be the same one that was there).
Click the second, etc.
Go through them ALL from left to right in perfect order.
It will then be F-Keyed to that order when you leave the gene terminal.

So fricken annoying, and very clumsy-crappy way they did it. But they, it was on console first, and not much thought was put into a useful UI ;)

I'm impressed. I thought everyone who bought the game, played for a couple hours till they realized it was another bethesda game, and then gave up ;)

Thanks! As annoying as that will be, dying because I pulled up the wrong plasmid during a fight is even more annoying.

That's pretty much how I got pulled into The Blockheads (for iOS). Now my daughter and I regularly compare notes on things we found while exploring, and what we've mined, crafted, or built. Good stuff.

Just finished Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition (yes, I've been beta testing it :P )

Now I'm maneuvering among Arkham City, Book of Unwritten Tales, and Miasmata.

Speaking of Bioshock 2, I really wish Feral could have gotten the rights to Minerva's Den. It looks amazing, but I'm reluctant to rebuy it on PC just to buy the DLC. Maybe a steam sale...
