What are you playing right now?

Postposted on Thu Dec 19, 2013 11:54 pm

Ok guys, I don't know if this sort of thread has been started already but... What are you playing right now?

To start things off I just finished playing Thief Gold last night. Funny thing is, I started playing this playthrough back in November 2010 and after the 5th level (Thieves Guild) I kinda felt too lazy to continue and just stashed my save files somewhere. Of the three Thief installments, Thief 1/Thief Gold is the one I like least due to its featuring zombies and whatnots which makes the game feel awkward. I have already finished TG before this playthrough but I accidentally deleted my saved games so I wanted to finish it again. I've finished Thief Gold perhaps twice now, counting the latest playthrough, Thief 2 perhaps 3 or 4 times, and Thief - Deadly Shadows perhaps more than 10 times. That's how much I love the Thief series. Like I said, I dislike some elements of the first game and I guess that's why I dropped this playthrough back in 2010 for a while and finished Thief 2 instead. I'm too lazy to finish Thief 1 and Thief 2 ever again. Perhaps I'll just explore the finished levels once in a while to 'adore' my work (I enjoy 'tucking everyone to sheep' in each level, or killing them so I could walk around without worrying about NPCs trying to kill me or running off).

Right now I'm looking at getting a new game from GOG.com. I'm looking at playing Dreamfall - The Longest Journey. Or maybe Trine 2. I also just got Legend of Grimrock so I might go there. Or maybe I'll revisit Arx Fatalis, which is an amazing game I played about 5 years ago and whose save files I also accidentally deleted. I was too far along AF already so losing my saves unavoidably made me too lazy to start over. I'm considering giving it another shot.

I've been playing WoW and LoL consistently for a few weeks. I'm also having some of my periodic fun with TF2 (I tend to play for a couple weeks, then not play for several months).

I'm pretty far into Batman: Arkham Origins, which I'm aiming to finish this weekend, and I reinstalled Diablo 3 off of expansion curiosity.

Right now, playing Dragons' Crown on PS Vita and loving it. On my second playthrough, unlocked Hard difficulty. Just got Cytus Lambda (rhythm game) for the vita as well, nice if you're into jpop/eurobeat.

On PC, I recently finished Hotline Miami, and unlocked the secret ending (I actually prefer the mysterious unsolved original ending better). Before that, I was playing Sanctum 2, lots of fun. I hate to say it, but PC gaming has taken a bit of a backseat since getting the Vita. I still played Hotline Miami on the PC instead of the Vita despite having it on both, because the mouse and keyboard are still more natural to me, and the big screen and big sound really heightened the experience. But the Vita is just so accessible, and a joy to game on. Plus, the games I'm playing on it are mostly exclusive/console titles at the moment. Maybe Wasteland 2 or Project Zomboid (or DayZ) will break me out of this funk and get me back to PC gaming. :P

Games I plan to play over the holiday break include:
Persona 4 Golden
Dragon's Crown
Spelunky
Tearaway (if it goes on sale over holiday break)
Wind, Sand and Stars.

And Tearaway gets a flash sale on PSN this weekend, $17.99 until Monday morning. Woot! So looking forward to this...

Finished XCOM Enemy within normal difficulty, and now, today i just started playing Titan Quest. I had it for a long time, but never really payed any attention to it, it's on steam on sale now, and it's quite cheap and funny.

Minecraft
GW2
LoL - Lots of Arams and Showdowns at the moment.
That damnable Neverwinter
Civ V
Wasteland 2 - for being so early, it's way less buggy than 99% of "finished" games.
Played a little StarForge - seems quite rough around the edges
Rocksmith 2014 (actually playing that RIGHT now)
I did play some Dota 2 - still totally not getting it. - biggest thing for me is the lack of a viewing mode where the viewport is locked on the champion is highly annoying. Best feature of LoL. :)

Just finished Saints Row IV last night. Very good game, but tries a bit too hard to be egregious and also suffers from consoleitis.

Next up is Just Cause 2, XCOM:EU or Darksiders depending on what sort of mood I'm in tomorrow morning.

FTL, Kerbal Space Program, and ARMA3 the past week or so. I also have about have a dozen games I've bought on Steam that I'll hopefully play at some point. :P

Yep FTL is one of those games where you think you are just going to start it up and have a quick game, but after every game you think you can do a little better next time. :)

Titan Quest was great fun. Make sure to pick up the add on "Immortal Throne" as it's also quite cheap now.

For me it's been Hitman: Blood Money. Picked up Hitman: Absolution back in the Amazon Summer Sale so I wanted to get a sense of where the game came from. That and Total Biscuit made some comments about HBM being a great game during one of SteamBox vids. Oh, I've also been playing more Plants vs Zombies but that's my goto game when I just have a couple of minutes to kill so I can't get into a more complex game. Think of it as a replacement for Solitaire.

I've been doing a lot of Skyrim. With new mods every now and then the game never gets old.

I tried posting some screen shots but for some reason this forum doesn't recognize the links so here they are if you want a peek.

Playing Borderlands 2 right now, decided to pick it up as it was on sale with steam with all the dlc. I had watched angry joe play the game and it looked interesting, and even though I am not a huge shooter fan I am actually enjoying it. The voice acting is top notch and the art style it pretty cool also.

I love Borderlands, but its biggest issue by far is that it tries too hard to be a shooter when its strength comes from the RPG elements.

I dunno man, I think if they'd ditch this 'Golden Key' crap they'd have a solid shooter too.

Having to fish outside the game for the good **** is about the lamest thing I can imagine.

I thought most people playing hard modes farmed bosses for loot...after all, I think the golden keys just give you purple (epic) items, while bosses drop orange (legendary) ones.
