What games are you playing now?
« on: July 07, 2010, 01:13:29 pm »
It's the slow time of the year for video games; the time of year you dust off some of those games you put aside for just such a time.  So what games have you guys been playing lately?  Something you never stopped playing or something you decided to pick back up?

My xbox recently red ringed and after an attempt at repairing it, it suprisingly worked for another month, then the RROD once again.  Luckily at the local Play and Trade they had recieved two of the new Xbox's and I got one the day they came in.  However in my Xbox's absence I started playing Final Fantasy XIII again, and started from the beginning determined to finish it this time.

got mount and blade: warband from the steam sale. for an indie game it is decent but i am sometimes at a loss as to what i should be doing

stole (read:...... uhhh well yeah i stole it) KIDS DONT DO THIS AT HOME AND/OR BAN ME)) continuum shift for my laptop again, because I WILL BE GONE for a week or so during and after release and that makes me sad

got grand theft auto 4 and metal gear solid 4 from a friend and i need to beat those, as well as S.T.A.L.K.E.R. which i got from a steam sale forever ago

will play tf2 soon, when the engineer update comes out... if i can fix this stupid adapter so that i can use my internets properly

APB
Starcraft 2 Beta (It's back up!)
TF2
MW2
Red Dead Redemption
Dragon Age : *insert name here*
...other stuff too.

APB primarily though as I enjoy the shooter action with a bit of a progression thrown in.

Red Dead Redemption (at 99.4% ugh wtf stupid bounties.)
Fallout 3
Orange Box (all done except Team Fortress 2 which sucks on 360 anyway)
Bayonetta hard/nonstop climax
Soul Calibur 4 (Zach playing, me trolling via headset)


Probably renting Bioshock 2 and Bully: Scholarship Edition from work. Waiting on Portal 2!


I tried to like Final Fantasy 13 but even I have my limits.

Wellllll with FFXIII i can understand, the first time I played nearly 50 hours and gave up, I still didn't have the mechanics down.  Now that I'm at the exact same spot on the second playthrough I have a MUCH better understanding of the game, and I'm really enjoying it.  It can be pretty tough at times.

I'm always down for Left 4 Dead 2 and I still play a few times a week, but I enjoy the expert campaigns and there are just too many noobs still out there, and I hate babysitting them. 

And I just have to say Half-life was one of the best games EVAR

Half Life 2 ep 2 was pretty awesome except for the gnome. There is no way to keep that son of a....in the car.

As for FF13 I tried to like it. I gave it a chance like I gave ff12 a chance- ff12 had it's redeeming qualities (I can leave it on overnight and bot level) whereas ff13 took 20 hours to get even remotely fun. Traded it in and got Red Dead.

99.6%!

i've always liked them for whatever reason.  i guess cause i grew up playing those kinds of games, like police quest, kings quest, monkey island, etc.

Rock Band 2/Guitar Hero 5
Final Fantasy XIII
Divinity II
Soul Calibur 4

I actually haven't played Final Fantasy XIII in a while. I got up to a point where I was going to farm gil, but I haven't done it yet.
And my friend got Divinity II and Soul Calibur 4, so we've been playing those.
