Given that the rain shows no signs of stopping, looks like we’ll all have plenty of quality “inside time” for gaming. Here’s what we’re playing:

Craig Lafferty, Producer:  GTA IV, Fallout 3

Michael Lattanzia, QA: Age of Conan Beta, Grand Theft Auto 4, The World Ends With You, Hellgate: London

Daryl Brigner, Level Designer: GTA IV still

Matt Grandstaff: Fallout 3 demo — over and over again (edit: Let me clarify that Matt is playing the original E3 demo we showed to the press over and over again as part of a trip to show the game to retail folks…he is not playing an actual demo, because there isn’t one and won’t ever be one. –Pete)

  1. Guys, i am really sorry for my question here but i want to know..

    I can’t see any global dynamic shadows in all currently available screenshots of Fallout 3 (example: http://www.ag.ru/screenshots/fallout_3/206495)

    How can that be for modern game? There is shadow maps, SSAO, SSIL, etc. I hope you surely will integrate some advanced shading technics, will you?

    Sorry and thanks for patience :)

  2. Shame The World Ends With You doesn’t have wifi capabilities over the net. Makes it tricky to get a completed game…


  3. “Matt Grandstaff: Fallout 3 demo — over and over again”

    thats exactly what I’d being doing :) :)

    I’d probably just be licking the screen and already be statisfied.

    Ha ha :D Thanks for the..tip :D

    As for what am playing mostly OBLIVION of late with all the cool armor mods and really weird dungeon mods that have come out the past months. One weird and original dungeon mod is “Pizz Scary Castle and FFXII Sword 1.0″ Talk about pretty freaky and occultish plus the castle looks alot like a ruined version of Castle Sentinel from TES 2 DAGGERFALL.

  5. The sims 2… The Godfather(currently taking out the other gang compounds) And… Watching Diamond Daydream
    (The Japanese ver.)

  6. For me, it’s Morrowind and Oblivion all the way! And maybe replaying some of the old Halo games and the Darkness (not sure if they’re by Bethesda, I know Halo isn’t, it’s by Bungie, right?) I’m really having fun of exploring Oblivion, I love Ayleid ruins! But I hate the traps. Anyone recommend a trap-free one?

    I cringe in terror as i realize there is no such thing…

    Best bet is to do more caves they’re a tad safer but not by much :D ha ha!
