What are you playing?

Postby Remco » 01 Nov 2011, 15:36

Believe it or not, but the Holiday season is around the corner. The most awesome games of the year are being released right now, so time to share what everybody is playing.

I'll start, no new games for me so far. I'm still playing Darksiders.

I got L.A. Noire for my birthday last month, so that's what I'm still playing right now. But I'm planning to grab Gears 3 somewhere along the way, although I still have to finish Gears 2 first....

I'm a nostalgic gamer... Games I've played recently are Red Alert 1, Carmageddon 2, Empire Earth 1, GTA III and GTA Vice City :) The latter being my fave classic...

No new games for me either - I'm just 'waiting' for CotD... Just hope my crappy old machine can handle it, hahaha...

Vice City is something I could replay 10 times and it would not become boring :-) I think I still know every alley in the city.

Playing 'Darksiders' for the second time around and also started on 'Red Dead Redemption'.

And I recently installed some Emulators on my PSP, so for the first time ever I started playing 'Zelda, a link to the past'!

Darksiders is an awesome game! Have it for the 360!

Been playing ratchet and clank for the ps3, Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty, Crack in Time. Awesome games, hope I can work on a 3D platformer in the future! Darksiders mechanics are awesome too!

Must've played out VC well over 20 times :) hehe... Doing the quests is fun, but mainly I'm just goofing around, doing stunts, etc... I must've logged tens of thousands of hours on the game <_<

I used to just drive around in the car that looked like a Testarossa, while 'Easy Lover' was blaring through the speakers.

I did, looks great! But then I remember being at the MediaMarkt around midnight for the GTA IV launch together with Remco and only playing that game for several hours before never touching it again....

Haven't even played GTA IV yet, maybe it was because of the major San Andreas disappointment... A bit of a cold shower after the brilliant Vice City...

I did eventually finish it, but I only remember myself thinking "how long does this #(&^%# game take to finish!!"

I just recently had the same problem with Battlefield 3, I always find myself just wanting to create games and look at games and reverse engineer.

Continued playing Darksiders over the weekend, and really got into it. It's much more like Zelda than I originally thought, but it's quite a bit more difficult. The puzzels are entertaining but not very challenging, the enemies are fun to play with and the boss fights are very well done. I'm loving this game so far!

Darksiders is one of the best action-adventure games out there IMHO.
The puzzel dungeons aren't difficult but a lot of fun to figure out and play through, it never really feels repetitive even though it kinda is. Same with the battles and boss fights. And I really like the way they simplified them stupid QT events!

Really can't wait for the sequel!

A few matches of League of Legends every now and then. I'm also playing Skyrim. Gravity-defying horses/physics glitches aside, it's a in-depth gorgeous RPG.

Darksiders was awesome but I never got around to finishing it. The last thing I remember killing was a giant teleporting spider demon.

Ordered DarkSiders from play.com, so that should arrive somewhere this week. Can't wait to play it after all your stories. Have to finish L.A. Noire first though.

I've been hooked on Skyrim since it released. Like dmbest said, the physics are a bit wack, but beyond that it is such an incredible game.

I'd love to play Skyrim as well, but I'll need a new computer first :) Time to look into that...

Minecraft!

Because independent developers always make the best games....sometimes. Depends upon the studio though.

Griefing in Minecraft is the best kind of griefing.

Me and my friends griefed a creative server at one point. My friend was flirting with the girl who was mod but then she slowly banned us one by one as we griefed and screwed up the server. I, for one, thought it was the most hilarious thing I have ever done.

They threatened us with hacking and everything but we sort of laughed it off in Teamspeak.
