What games are people playing these days!?
#1
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

The Walking Dead (Mac)

FTL (Mac)

Empire: TW (Mac)

Up Next:

Baldur's Gate Enhanced (Mac)

Divinity: Original Sin (Mac)

And if I can find the time:

Fallout 2 (Mac GOG version) Because I never finished it when it was originally released for the Mac.

There will probably be others as they pop up but this is off the top of my head right now.

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

Did ME3, just finished Darksiders 2, and moving on to Dishonored and Dead Space 3.

Confess that it's all on my Windows partition.

You could have zigged... but NOOOOoooOOooOooOooooo... you zagged.

Bone injuries are the worst. Be tough for the rest of us. Cause we're all pussies.

Thats exactly how it happened. Had I dodged the other way around, he would only have barely touched me. Oh well!

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

Civ5: Gods & Kings

Crusader Kings II

BioShock 2 (paused)

MineCraft (my kid asked me to set him up a server, so now I'm suckered in to playing with him a bit each day; it's fun because of him)

Waiting on Mac/iPad versions of Panzer Corps and Commander: The Great War (Slitherine Games).

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 )

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...
