What Video Game are you Currently Playing?
 
After seeing similar threads for books, and music, I figured why not one for video games?

I am working on Dynasty Warriors 6 (XBox 360), I have gotten 1 officer (Sun Shang Xiang) to level 50 and am working on unlocking the remaining characters.

Resident Evil 4 for Gamecube.

That game never seems to get old.

Civilization: Beyond the Sword. That game gets in your head. I'm nearly on Prince difficulty, using a cottage economy and a builder gamestyle.

I've got an older computer, so I play Diablo 2, Starcraft, and Civilization 3. Love them all!

Some Warhammer Online with a side of Warhammer Online. A dessert of Warhammer Online also accompanies the meal.

Pick up The Wind Waker for the Gamecube, or download, well, pretty much any other Zelda off of the Virtual Console. They're lightyears better. You know, if you haven't played them. If you have... play them again. I don't want to see someone throwing away their taste buds. :p

Currently, other than Animal Crossing: City Folk and Wii Fit as daily activities, I've been plowing through Okami on the Wii. FANTASTIC game. It has fantastic gameplay, style that makes TWW pale in comparison, and great plot and pacing. It's five stars - honestly, anyone who likes adventure games should pick it up. It's just that good.

I'm currently working on Fable II (360) and Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core (PSP) at this point. After I'm finished with Fable, I'll move onto Mirror's Edge.

PC: Civilization: Beyond the Sword (I have owned every version of this game. It is without a doubt the best franchise ever! :2cents: )

PS3: Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe (My MK skills have always been a bit lacking so, I'm trying to catch-up.)
Rock Band 2 (I can now perform some of the easier songs on hard.)

Word! High-five, brother! You ever consider playing a by-email game? I still play at noble, so I'd probably get creamed, but oh, well.

I have never played a by-e-mail game. How are they? If I can get some free time I will definitely send you a PM. That game tend to take-over my life and I can't afford to let that happen right now.;)

They're just like a normal game, except you take one turn and send the file to another person. It's suggested that you put it on Quick mode for this one.

And I totally get you about it taking over your life. Why do you think they added an optional on-screen clock to the game? So you can see if you're up at three in the morning again. :p

Oh, cut it out, already. :roll: TP was my second favorite Zelda game, and I've planed nearly all of them. It's personal preference.


Currently I'm playing Okami. It's darn good, but the dodging and camera controls are a little annoying... After I play that, I'm going to finish playing Zelda: Ocarina of Time. One of the few I've never finished. But so far I still like TP and Wind Waker better...

Seems like it would be a little slow at start of the game, but once you got on a bit you could really maximize each turn. Late game world war… yummy!

Currently playing Assassins creed (360) i just figured out there are counter attacks and quick kills. no more getting my butt kicked by guards.

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?
 
I've recently (re)discovered the solution to my hopeless lack of spare time: old-style arcade games. not necessary old games, but games you can pick up for a quick couple of games, then forget them for two weeks without forgetting buttons layout and combos or what was happening in the meantime. games such as Out Run 2006, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Resident Evil Umbrella Chonicles and House of the Dead, Geometry Wars, etc...

Pumpkin_King January 13th, 2009 06:18 PM

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?
 
Gabbi reminds me. I have also recently pulled my Sega Genesis out of storage. Boy, what great games there were for that. Street Fighter? Vectorman? Vapor Trail? Clayfighter? The very underrated Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine? All of the good Sonic games? Right now I'm playing through Sonic 3 for the umpteenth time; it feels good to remember all those little secrets you thought you forgot.

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?
 
I was playing LoZ:TP as well, but that was set aside unfinished; thanks Left 4 Dead! I'll finish up Twilight Princess soon, since I know Hyrule Castle has to be near the finish, but there's nothing quite like getting some friends together to survive commit genocide against the zombie horde.

On the DS front, I just started playing a game called Dementium - The Ward. It's pretty spooky so far. I'm wandering through a dark and bloody, and I do mean bloody hospital. Not shore why I'm there yet. Or what was going on there. But I keep running into this things that I don't think should be real... and they seem to be hungry.

Funny thing about that; the Zombie Genocide achievement originated in Dead Rising, in which you also had to kill 53,594 zombies.

I tried to like L4D, I really did, and I tried to accept it for what it is but I couldn't though playing it on a PC may alter my views on it as it stands, I dont like FPS' on my console, or my zombies stupid fast and moderately intelligent.

Roland, it might help you to remember that they're not Romero-style zombies, more like 28-Days-Later zombies.

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?
 
I am currently hooked on:

Supreme Commander (Large scale RTS)
Warcraft 3 FT (RTS)
Guild Wars (MMO)
Heroscape :D (Board game)

I'm curious if anyone else has had experience with SupCom; they have announced a SupCom 2 (not Forged Alliance), and I don't know what I want to think of it. The first was good, but had some major set backs; the "expansion" IMO wasn't much better, and they took away from some aspects of the game that I really liked.

EDIT:If anyone is interested this is the link to were I found the announcement. http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/news/42...er-2-Announced

(I couldn't get the underline to go away for some reason.)

I really like sports video games. I realize that I'm probably in the minority here though. I really like NBA Live 09 and Fifa 09. I am currently playing NBA since I recently got the game but both are awesome.
I play on all-star on NBA and legendary on Fifa 09.

SimCity 4

Too much to do. So little time.

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?
 
My cousin has Halo 3, so I play that a little bit, but the big one is definately 'Battlefront 2'. I'm still a feared and respected (I hope) player, and I can get some good kills now and then. For instance, I was playing CTF on Tantive IV, and the Clones were ahead 3-4, and one of my team mates got a point to tie it with 16 seconds left, and I grabbed the flag to win the game right before an enemy got it. (If the teams are tied, the team that has the flag in the end is the winner.) Yep, nothin' beats a good ol' Star Wars game!

Can you even really beat SimCity 4? I'll admit that I have it myself, but isn't it an ongoing game? Or are there scenarios? I can't remember.

Been playing a lot of Wii Sports lately. Thank God for the strap that keeps the control anchored to my wrist. If not for that I guarantee I would a have thrown it through the window by now. :)

Plenty of Guitar Hero World Tour too...

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?
 
I'm currently beating Twilight Princess on the Wii (I've already defeated Ganon(just in case) on the gamecube version).
Right now I am at Hyrule Castle, have 17 hearts, the magic armor, the giant quiver, the big wallet, 41 poes, 18 bugs, all bomb bags, three bottles... I made it to the battle with the three darknuts in the Cave of Ordeals... ...and I think that all counts for 27 hrs of play time...

It is easier in some parts than other zelda games... but I think it's still a pretty awesome game!

EDIT: I also have all seven skills.

I love that game! PM me if you need help with pretty much any mission, but, if you do that, please send me the name of your character!

Team Fortress Classic on Steam.

I'd be playing more NES with the NES Max turbo controller I ordered, but I left the system and games at my mom's house.

For the Wii, I've been playing the crap out of Boom Blox, and Iron Chef America.

For the DS, I'm playing Chrono Trigger (brings back SO many memories!), and the new revamped Civilization.

And for PS2, my son and I have been playing through the original Spyro trilogy and we've about 20% through the second game.

I was wondering the same thing. I usually just work on a town when I play this game.

For PS2 I'm currently playing God of War II, Viewtiful Joe, and I just started Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal.

For Wii, I've recently gotten hooked on the Zelda shooting game. I've gotten six platinums, one gold, and two silvers so far. I'm also in the middle of Galaxy, Resident Evil 4, and Wario Land: Shake It. I'm terrible at completing games.

I just got a new hi-def tv and subwoofer, so I'm back to Halo 3 a bit now. It looks and sounds fantastic; I can make the whole house shake with that woofer cranked up. The neighbors are happier than pigs in poop, I'm sure.

Also, still absolutely addicted to wii sports bowling. My buddies and I play every night it seems.

I just discovered a awesomeness of Boom Blox a few weeks ago. It is a great game that I would recommend to anyone. Great Party Game too.

Currently I am playing LOTR: Conquest on PS3. Seems to be a big split whether people like/dislike this game. I am on the side of liking the game. I can play it for hours and still be ready for more :D

I just replaced my DS (accidently got it wet and would not charge :( ) so I think I will try out Elite Beat Agents again. I am on the hardest difficulty and need to practice to get back my Elite Beat Skills.

Boom Blox is the jam for local multiplayer. Single player is decent, but the game shines with 3-4 people playing.

Just finished Drake's Fortune on PS3. Very satisfying. I've been hooked on the new Grand Theft Auto and Oblivion for the PS3 for the past few weeks. My kids and my wife love to watch me play Oblivion and get very excited about what I should do and where I should go. It's just like playing a video D&D game with them. I actually started Shadow of the Colossus a few weeks ago as well. One of those games I picked up for the PS2 over a year ago when they dropped the price down to $19.99 and threw on the "I'll get to this game someday" shelf.

I'm planning on getting this game very soon because I suspect it'll be one of those hard to find games in the future. How are you liking it so far?
