    Sometimes I dream of the day I can replay the series (or rather, play ME 1 and replay ME 2 & 3 for the nth time). ...but I need to play Andromeda first.

    Currently playing Pokemon Ultra Moon. Really enjoying it so far.

    War Thunder, usually on @Bloo Leeder 's account since he has a nice Russian lineup of T34-100, T44-100, T-54 1947 model and the awesome IS-6.

    So, it stuck in your head enough to want to have another go at it.
    I'm trying to finish the tank trouble game, I haven't finished yet. Skyward Sword, and after that maybe some DS games. Currently playing rooftop snipers unblocked.

    This. It's taking me awhile because the mood and pacing of the game doesn't quite go with how I feel these days.

    Next some unfinished business (Prince of Persia WW and TT) and after that - Thimbleweed Park.

    Picked up GTA V at -67% discount today! Finally, after years of postponing it for various reasons... ;) Good timing, though, I have a lot of free time right now.

    I was never really into the GTA games, on the XBOX I had a double pack that had Vice City and I think III. I played around with both for a while but tired of them quickly. But after watching some videos of GTA V I had to check it out and really loved it. Though after finishing the story I spent most of my time either just flying around in planes/helicopters or playing golf. If I have a bad round I'll naturally go on a rampage at the country club. There's no telling how many times they've had to call the SWAT team and choppers out to that golf course.

    Yet another round of my (partly ocd-driven) crusade to finish the games I've started at some point. This time I've done:
    Prince of Persia: Warrior Within (2004)
    Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones (2005)
    Postal 2: Paradise Lost (2003-2015)
    (The expansion only. I've finished the main game ages ago)
    Legend of Kyrandia. Book 3: Malcolm's Revenge (1994) (Had to replay the first two to refresh my memory).

    Now onto a new game (for me) - Prince of Persia (2008).

    I stopped playing GoW, the new one, cause I'm trying get skins for Battlefront classes, GoW graphic are awesome, great game, gotta find time to get that in. I also put aside COD WW2 for Battlefront. I can't wait for the Geonosis Map coming in Water so I'm trying get all my Star Cards leveled up(purple) and get all my skins for my classes. I'm a big GTa fan but I got the last one for my 360. I can't wait for GTA for the PS4. I I rarely play on my old 360 (maybe if I'm snowed in LOL).:D

    Beat it! A well made game (if a bit too structured). But man, the ending sucked. And the Epilogue DLC (unavailable on PC for "business reasons" :mad:) sucked even more. Still, this is a reboot (mostly) done right and I wish they made a proper sequel, not just an NDS side-story.

    Never played the DLC, but I am one of the people who appreciated the ending. Sure, it's quite a downer but it does make sense. Not every sacrifice has to be accepted by the people closest to you and that's fine.

    Neither did I, but there are walkthroughs on Youtube.
    I feel like I would appreciate the ending a lot more, if there was a proper sequel. I quite like this "Prince" and maybe I'll even play the NDS game at some point, if I get it to work on my pc (nudge nudge wink wink).

    Ever since I discovered Elite Dangerous about 4 months ago I haven't played anything else. Not surprising as this is pretty much the video game I've been wanting my whole life although there could be some improvements. A Star Wars game in this style would be insane. Lately I've been doing a lot of smuggling, bounty hunting and assassinations... always baddies like pirates and terrorists though. Though sometimes I just spend hours exploring.

    If you've never seen it here's a crappy little video I made to show a guy I work with what I was talking about. I don't get into any combat or anything but go to a really cool moon called Mitterand Hollow. It orbits the planet New Africa so quickly (a revolution every 1 or 2 minutes) and so closely that when you're on the surface it looks like the planet is rising and falling across most of the horizon and causes a solar eclipse every minute or two. So you see the day side and then the night side of this planet dominating the sky as the moon you're on zooms around it. It's pretty amazing looking on a big screen (and even more so in VR I imagine) and sadly the XBOX game DVR downgrades the quality a bit... but I think it still looks pretty cool. I do accidentally miss catching Mitterand Hollow on my first approach and have to wait for it to come back around and catch me in its gravity.



    Asimov fans may recognize the name of my ship: Far Star. I also have one named Thunder Child from the novel War Of The Worlds and a bunch from movies: Eagle Five (Spaceballs), Thunder Road (Explorers), Discovery One (2001: A Space Odyssey), Moonraker (Moonraker), Nostromo (Alien) and a few others. Plus I have one named Yankee Clipper which was the name of the CM on Apollo 12.

    Managed to beat this... beloved classic. And actually enjoyed most of it! How, you may ask? With the unofficial 1.3 patch, of course! It updates textures, fixes lots of stuff and makes compainions invincible and optional. So, if, like me, you've started the game because of the hype and dropped it because it was, well, sh..t, now you can safely finish it without feeling like Romero's b-ch.

    P.S. In case you do want to feel like some dev's b-ch, try Dead Cells. You are going to lose and replay a lot, and most likely going to love it.

    Dang it, I finished GTA V some time ago and I keep going back to roam around, because I want more. Not much left to do, unfortunately. On a side note, free roam in finished games is weirdly depressing. :p

    I hear they're adapting it into a movie starring The Rock.

    Still just playing Elite Dangerous. I decided to strip down one of my ships for exploring to leave humanity's bubble for the first time and do some DEEP space exploration by taking the trip to Sagittarius A (and the supermassive black hole there) in the center of the galaxy. I decided to take my ship Far Star, not just because it had the most appropriate name for the trip (that I took from a ship in Asimov's Foundation trilogy) but it has really good jump range with some modifications. With the exception of a few isolated outposts it is deserted out there, given that I don't play constantly it took about a week to reach the first outpost on my journey. So it's a little tedious with no missions or battles (that one outpost didn't have any missions not that my exploration ship would have been capable of doing any), just jumping from system to system and occasionally stopping to explore a system. And that has been cool, since I've stayed in the bubble all this time I haven't discovered any systems/planets until now. So I've enjoyed mapping out some of the undiscovered systems, landing on planets knowing that no other player has been there before and seeing my name go on the planets as their discoverer. Boldly going where no one has gone before as Trek puts it. Plus there have been plenty of cool sights, I've flown through some cool nebulae and I'm seeing the Milky Way get bigger and bigger in my cockpit window. Admiring the view and scanning planets is about all there is to do though, and it will probably be close to 2 months before I actually make it back to Earth. That makes it kind of cool though, though I might prefer to break up the monotony of constantly jumping from star to star and fuel scooping by doing some missions/combat. However the length of voyage and isolation does lend a feeling of authenticity to the journey.

    Here's a couple of planets I discovered in the Droju SL-J d10-20 system. I didn't land on either one and get the SRV out (I have with some, especially the first ones I discovered), the first had a pretty boring landscape (pretty color but no big hills or mountains to go down) and the other had an interesting surface I was thinking about exploring until I bottomed out my ship and lost some of my hull integrity, then I decided it better just to get back on the road before I accidentally killed myself and lost the millions worth of data I'd accumulated and lost thousands of light years of traveling... as this was still during the first leg of my journey and it would have taken me all the way back to Earth (the last station I'd docked at) losing days of traveling and all the planets I'd discovered. As you don't get pay/credit for the charting/discoveries until you sell the data at a station and you lose the data if you die. I did make it to the outpost in the Eagle Nebula, sold my data and made repairs. Now if I kill myself I'll only go back that far instead of all the way back to Earth.
