Default Games you are playing

What's everyone playing? I am personally playing my way through Killzone 2 on the PS3. On the PC front, its still COD4 online.

I hate to report it, but, I haven't been touching too many games lately, and if I do make time to game, it's usually spent in Asheron's Call. I want to make more time for others though, since there are many games out there I've wanted to play through, but haven't. I mean, I still haven't beaten Crysis, or Call of Duty 4! I'm way behind on things!

On the console front, I've slowly been making my way through Rachet & Clank: Tools of Destruction, and after that, I'll probably play through the expansion. Also been playing WipEout HD, but I might be at a point where it's just going to take far too much time to progress, so I might be done with that.

There are many other games I wouldn't mind getting into though. Kind of a good situation, to be honest. Too many games to play ;-)

Let me know how Killzone 2 is. I remember drooling over that one big-time when the first-ever trailer was released.

Beautiful game. Shit controls.

I am going to beat it. Just because but I DO NOT care for the controls at all.

Barely playing anything here. I was playing some Iron Grip Warlords (Definitely not worth the asking price... just unbelievable) but I'm done with it now, and L4D.

Thinking about the new CoH Tales of Valor pack that's coming out in a week, and going nuts waiting for the new L4D downloadable content that's also about to come out (finally). All four maps will become versus playable, a completely new, harder map will be added, and a new game mode called Survivor will be added well.

I have been addicted to "And Yet it Moves", a Steam indy game. It's a lot of fun.

Lately I've been playing:

Touch 'Em - just put up a review on it

Cosmic One

Raging Thunder - really enjoying the feel of this racing game
Block Breaker Deluxe 2 - really enjoyable, polished game; right up there with Ikanoid and old favorites, Galcon and Metasquares

and how about you, what are some of the games you're enjoying as of late?

I have gone back a few years and have been playing Command and Conquer: Generals with my roommate and his cousin via the internets. Such a fun game.

DotA
Tried to get into warhammer, and it was ok... and I recommend checking it out... But over all it just wasn't for me.
L4D on occasion.
Did I mention DotA ?

I'm so lame. I love dungeon crawls, RPGs, puzzle and (shhhh, don't tell anyone) CCG's. And the occasional platformer. So my games list consists of:

Console (all PS3):
Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction (beaten twice but ALWAYS still fun)
Rock Band 2 (for groups or me and the missus)
Eden (downloadable)
Valkyria Chronicles (GREAT game, bout halfway through)
and collecting dust waiting for me to finish Valkyria is Little Big Planet.

Computer:
Oblivion (God bless Crossover games)
Baldur's Gate II
Icewind Dale 1 & 2
Neverwinter Nights 1 & 2 (notice a theme here?)
Thief Series
Deus Ex 1 & 2
The old, old OLD Microprose (remember them?!) Magic: The Gathering (shhh, I feel a little dirty about that)
Ultima 7 and 8
HL2 and Portal (again and again and again...)
Starcraft

That pretty much wraps it up. Yep, I've not really enjoyed a proper FPS in so long that I've forgotten what they're like. Except for HL2, I've not found anything even tolerable for more than an hour or two. I found FarCry fun for about 4 hours, though. I'd probably revisit that one! Oh, and Serious Sam was hella fun.

Ahh, I have R&C: Tools of Destruction downloaded, but I'm not quite through the original yet. This series is quite spectacular though. Not your ordinary platformer, that's for sure. Plus, there's humor that actually makes me laugh out loud. That's rare for a game series to do.

Ahh, Valkyria Chronicles. Are you a fan of Sega's other RPG games? I used to be a huge RPG gamer, but I kind of trailed off after the SNES (arguably the best console for RPGs ever). Sad thing is, I own like 20 RPGs for the PS1 and PS2, but have never got around to 75% of them :-/

Thief! Another game I keep meaning to go back and play. As for Oblivion, that's one game I just couldn't get into. I loved the open-endedness of it, but just something about it...
