  1. BF: BC 2 (PC), and nothing else. Been playing BF 2 since it came out. So I really needed som proper BF action again, of course that is when BC 2 works which is only periodically at best. Hope they get that server system and EA-online working soon :-). But when it works it’s really sweet! (next goal top 3000)

  2. I was playing for most of the weekend the disappointment the watered down wine which is SUPREME COMMANDER 2. Thank goodness i played it at a friends house. Its definitely not like the original. Fortunately for me i never played the FORGED ALLIANCE expansion so i picked that up sunday afternoon and am loving it. Ah nothing like playing an old cpu intensive game on a modern computer.

    Keeping my fingers crossed the release of DAWN OF WAR 2 CHAOS RISING doesnt end in more watered down tragedy later this week.

    Also squeezing in a bit of FALLOUT 3.

  3. Hellbishop: Chaos Rising looks great, I’m pretty psyched to slaughter some heretics. The new campaign stuff sounds great as well 🙂

    Sokal yes CHAOS RISING looks like its going to do for soul corrupting spirit obliterating evil what DAWN OF WAR 2 did for purifying glistening brilliantly bright life enhancing good.

  5. I’m afraid Sushi Cat peggle has my heart these days.

    I did give it a brief break to play Torchlight, though. I’m feeling a bit in the mood to follow up my Mass Effect (1&2) marathon with a Fallout 3 marathon some time soon.

    That or actually play the billion-and-a-half other games I got in the Steam Christmas sale, of course. 😀

  6. Hey gstaff,

    A question for the Bethesda devs: do you think if Bethesda made a multiplayer game they’d be able to make a server browser that worked/actually did what you wanted it to/had more functionality than a fly with no wings or legs?

    EA/DICE seem to have a mind-numbingly, head against wall-smackingly incessant need to create great playing games that are nigh-on impossible to actually get in to and play.

    Naturally this in reference to Bad Company 2. The irony of the name of the game and EA/DICE is not wasted on me. Bad companies indeed.

    Rant over!

    On a related note to your post: I notice noone is playing Pirates, Vikings and Knights 2; a free mod available via Steam. If the devs in the office are looking for a quick, light hearted, sword slashing, explosive keg loving fun multiplayer game then look no further. It has killer homing parrots for goodness sake…that’s got to win some sort of awesome award 🙂

  7. Picked up the WARHAMMER 40k DAWN OF WAR 2 expansion CHAOS RISING on release day and having a blast with it. A true sequel that enhances the greatness of the original.

    Also putting in some heavy time with a new character in TORCHLIGHT for a cheery yet still creepy contrast.
