What are you playing now?

Postby JasefWisener » Tue Oct 14, 2008 7:18 pm

Either Sierra or other. Or, if you're not playing anything, what do you wish you were playing?

Right now I'm into SQ5 again. Haven't played it in a good while, so I'm gonna play through it.

I was playing SQIII, KQIV and Wizardry VIII - but my external that had all of that - crashed. So I am in the process of recovering. On the XBOX360 when my friend comes over - we're playing CO-OP Rainbow Six (we do all the Co-Op FPS games). :)

On regular XBOX I play some Toejam & Earl III from time to time.

Whenever I'm in a console mood I usually head straight to RE4 on the Wii.

Currently, I'm not playing any Sierra titles (unless you count Half-Life, which they published -- I'm playing through that again in anticipation for the sequel's next episode). For modern games, I just finished Silent Hill: Homecoming on the XBOX 360; I was planning on giving it another run to get the second ending, but my rental time was up ("next-gen" video games are too expensive to purchase these days -- almost $65!) There's a few decent-looking, mindless-FPS games coming out this holiday season, so the only game I'm really killing time with right now is World of Warcraft, which I don't really play that often: maybe a few hours every month, but since another expansion set is on it's way out, I'll see how long I can hold interest.

I just finished "Max Payne" over the long weekend and I've been on and off with "Woodruff and the Schnibble."

For my next game, I'd either like to replay "Kingdom Hearts 2" or go through all 5 QfG games again in all three different modes.

I'm not currently playing anything. Haven't really had enough time. I recently finished Still Life, but was disappointed with it. A lot if people on Adventure Gamers had raved about it, but I found that it fell far short of anything that I could recommend. Too many meaningless puzzles that had little to do with plat development. I might give Benoit Sokal another try, though each one of his games seems to be less that the previous. Paradise was almost a stinker.

Well, I'm in not playing any Sierra games right now :)

* In the middle of Dracula 3 - Path of Dragon (taking a break from that one though)
* Just finished The Hardy Boys - (quite a nice game, not too difficult)
* Recently finished Woodruf and the Schnibble of Azimuth - awesome game 8-)
* Just started So Blonde and having a blast :)

I too was disappointed by Still Life: uninteresting story and character, not to mention totally absent character's development. I know that people loved it on AG, and I'm certainly the minority.

I loved Syberia, and I'm with you: Paradise was a great disappointment. I've read that Nikopol is even worse (and the demo seemed pretty clear), so I guess I've to wait for Aquarica.

A very good game, in my opinion. Enjoy ;)

I'm waiting for So Blonde, and I can't wait to sink my teeth in it! ;)

Currently, I'm playing:

- Mask of Eternity: second play-through
- Ecoquest 1: for review purpose, and I'm loving it
- Callahan's Crosstime Saloon: wondeful!
- Spore: despite all my initial concerns, I'm liking it. I hate the combat and the strategy part, but designing/coloring/dressing/accesorizing the creature is extremely funny :P

Marvelous game! A masterpiece: I've played it for hundreds of hours (something like 240 and plus) and I can't get enough!
