    Default Anyone play any good games lately?

    With E3 on our doorstep, there are a lot of fun looking things being hyped right now. Other than Backyard Monsters, I haven't really gotten into anything lately though. Recommendations?

    I've really only seen the promo footage for LA Noire. I've been meaning to look at what the actual gameplay looks like. I also kind of want to get my hands on that new Batman thing from Warner Bros., although from a time management perspective, I think Orcs Must Die is a better fit for me these days.

    most games don't really hold my interest for long anymore, but I did find dragonage 2 entertaining and too much of a timehog........but, still waiting for diablo3

    Left 4 Dead 2. Been playing that nonstop. It's older, but there's nothing like blowing a zombie's head off with a shotgun.

    i am very jealous. i would love to join you all for some d&d gaming. it would be ever so nice to not be the only 'weird one' in the group, for want of a better term. i was never quite comfortable being myself in my tabletop gaming groups, unlike on this forum or in my only games.

    I'll give Andrew a call today and ask, but I don't foresee any difficulties there. I also think that a dice-hunting expedition to Guardian Games would just about make my Saturday. Do you have both our phone numbers or just K's?

    We'll be taking her out for her first adventure on Sunday. Haven't seen her in action yet, but I stared in awe as this girl rolled two 99's and a 100 for three of her character's six statistics! Assuming the enemy NPCs have discernible heads (a safe bet, since this isn't "Call of Cthulu"), then most of them should be rolling in the dust by campaign's end.

    I'm sure this isn't what you meant at all, but I play neopets. Every single day. No video game can hold my interest like neopets.

    Although I do really enjoy all of the 007 games, and Star Wars Battlefront. I guess I'm old school. :P

    Done. I must admit though, your trophies and awards put me to shame. I mainly focus my efforts on getting as many NP as possible, so you've impressed me!

    Cool. To be honest, I'm too lazy to play like that if anything. I barely touch the site day-to-day, I just monitor it for temporary events and new wearables then play just enough to win them. I'm usually broke np-wise, but when you've been playing for so long there's always something lying around that you can sell at a ridiculous unexpected profit.

    Since the most up to date console we own is a GameCube, we still play games on that. Most of our console gaming is done while we try to get to sleep at night, so a game where you need to wave your arms around or jump around the room would not be condusive to helping us sleep.
    As for tabletop games, we play a friend's Victorian horror game "Haunt & Horrors", and I am being forced to play Dungeons & Dragons D20 by another gaming group. I can recommend a boardgame called Frag, if you like your First Person Shooters.

    Someone mentioned D&D, yay! I don't belong to any groups, but I have played a few one-shot games. It's pretty fun, the only part I dislike is the amount of planning that goes into your character. What exactly is Haunt and Horrors?

    Speaking of nerdy games, has anyone played Fluxx (it's a card game) or Pokemon? I love both of them, Pokemon especially. And I mean the real card game, it's actually pretty addicting. My partner's a huge nerd and even works at a game/comic shop, so his nerdiness has rubbed off on me a little. :P

    why is it no surprise that Raza is on neopets.

    I finally got fable III, which is fun but inferior to Fable II.

    I recently revived my Nation States account, but got bored with it when it was exactly as I remembered.

    Been staying at a place where the neighbors agreed to share thier password, so that also explains the temporary reactivation of my status on the BBBB.
