Just curious to see what everyone is playing a lot of at the moment... Doesn't matter which system the game is on, just wanna know what's managed to keep you occupied lately... or what you are looking forward to playing when it comes out..

I've been playing a fair bit of Ghost Recon on PC and SSX: Tricky on PS2.. Waiting for FFX to be released in Australia so I can give that a good working over...

NWN isn't looking so good anymore.. I mean, it'll be a great game, but there was a big problem that cropped up a while ago.. here's a copy of what Gamespy had to say about it:

Neverwinter Nights recently hit another snag when BioWare announced that they were ending their publishing contract with Interplay. Unfortunately, Interplay owns the exclusive license to the Forgotten Realms for the next few years. Hopefully, the two companies will reconcile, or the licensing situation will change so that BioWare can potentially find a new publisher and the suffering of fans can end.

From what i've seen of it so far, it looks like a great game. I know many people, myself included, who have been waiting for this for a long time now. Sadly, if/when it finally makes it out, unless they fix it up a little, it sounds like it might be a little dated...

Beefy how often do you buy a new game?

Beefy

I gotta admit I have been found guilty for actually buying a few games lately and within a month of each other :eek: what can I say I bought T2 cause it is good over a LAN (pitty no-one really played it (with the latest version) @ MORB II) still plays good on the NET though even with high pings. And Diablo 2 I bought about a week ago (needed a good single player game so I could ramp up the d/loads ;-) ) That's my excuse anyhow :D

SimGolf! God that game is wierd hehe

As for peeps playing Ghost Recon, how do you finish lvl 14? i kill lots of peeps and still dont clear the pass's. There are no red dots on the indicator at the pass areas and they still dont get cleared.

Playing Ghost Recon at the moment. Awesome game.

RtCW is ****. Typical ID software game.
MOH:AA owns it.

Recently got Operation Flashpoint. Have just finished it and have the expansion on order.
Yes- that means I actually paid for a game AND the expansion.

Looking forward the SoF2 and Unreal2. I think everybody is. :)

btw Beefy- that Bond game for the PS2 is called '007: Agent under fire' Playing it again today, pretty sick game.

cone som1 give me a description of this "tricky game"?

It's... it's... TRICKY!!!

Have ya heard the Run DMC song 'Tricky'? That's the theme song.. (well, a new mix of it..)

Basically, it's the sequel to SSX, which was a briliant snowboarding game on PS2.. They've included a heap more stuff in this one, and it's just good fun to play.. It's not a 'serious' snowboarding game like a lot of the others.. they don't even attempt to make it seem real.. but it's just great fun.

Everytime you build up this big bar thing on the side, you get Tricky mode (so you repeatedly hear the word Tricky... :) ).. then you get to do some unbelievable moves...

Actually, on the DVD special stuff, they claim that all the moves are 'theoretically possible'. Pfffffft. But who cares. They're cool!

That's a load of crap.. i'd like to see someone lie down on their board, do three barrel rolls, get back on it and land...

Well....with some massive air, im sure its 'theoretically' possible to have a cpu of tea and eat a doghnut as well.

I think by 'theoretically' they actually mean 'Landing optional'

:D

Finished Max Payne (again, on harder difficulty setting) today. What a total load of crap that game was....

Have played Homeworld on and off ever since it came out. Awesome game! Didnt know anyone else still played it...everytime I goto the lobby its deserted. They are all playing that horrendeous expansion....

Did anyone play Clive Barker's Undying?
Picked it up cheap and its totally freaky. I reccomend you empty your bladder every hour so as not to have any....accidents.
