I just have the demo. I didn't check for any patches.

I'll try turning everything to the lowest to see if it works better. As of now I can make my units move, shoot, and some other basic things. Definitely not ready for an MP game. :p

Well, there are no patches for the demo. :p

I was talking about the full game. :D

Playing MotorStorm: Pacific Rift. Very fun game and the graphics are really awesome sometimes.

Also Deus Ex: HR on PC of course. Just came into my apartment for the first time yet already spent close to 6h with the game :eek:

I want to like X3 Terran Conflict because it's such a gorgeous game and the concept sounds so cool on paper, but everything is so slow. Fly in a straight line to that gate, do nothing for 15 minutes. Load. Fly in a straight line to that other gate. Do nothing for 15 minutes.
I thought it was going to be a much more interesting version of Freelancer, but it seems to be Freelancer: The Complex but Boring Edition.:(

Red Orchestra: Heroes of Stalingrad
Hm. Runs ok for me. Still not much of a fan. I'll play more when it works for my brother but so far he crashes when he attempts to join a game.

Gears of War 2
Wanted to play Horde with my brother, but it seems like they have another one of these stupid events going where only Tickers spawn and you get loads of bonus experience... Don't care for the experience, don't care for Tickers-only.
Just my luck, I guess. The last three times I dug out Gears of War 2 for Horde I always hit days with stupid events. Last time was during a Wretches-with-shotguns-only event, if I remember correctly.
They could really learn something from TWI and their Killing Floor events!
Tuesday though: Gears of War 3! Can't wait!:)

Far Cry 2
The only game I really play for any length of time, at the moment. I really like it. I wrote earlier why and it still applies.
This may be controversial, but I really don't mind the guard posts respawning. It's a little excessive, I'll give you that, but in principle it's cool. Very tense game.
Spoiler!


Civilization IV
I bought Civilization V when it was on sale but I haven't gotten around to playing more than the tutorials. Looks fantastic, that's all I can say for now. My brother got wind of this and he wanted to play Civ with me but he didn't buy Civ V so we played Civ IV multiplayer instead.
Just a great game all around. Multiplayer just works and you can do what you want. You can play Lan with one copy, very customizable options, you can save (and quit) at any time, resuming saved games works like a charm, players can even take over for AI and vice versa! Literally everything is as it should be. And the game itself is a blast as well.

My Gears of War 3 just came in the mail!

They couldn't just drop it off, interestingly, they needed to see my ID, jot down the number on my ID and had me sign a paper. Because it's 18+! *gasp*:p
It's like I ordered a canister of uranium and a cheap alarm clock, lol.

I love Big Brother!
2+2=5

Anyway, Gears 3! Yay!:D

I literally haven't played anything besides RO2 since I got the beta...and that's rare for me. Like, really rare. I'm typically juggling 2 to 3 games at any one time.

It makes me sad it couldn't be a big love fest where both the RO fans and the newcomers liked the game they were presented...but I seem to be in this silent middle group of people that likes the game, and is starting to love it more with every day (and every patch.)

Cryisis Wars.

Tried to play Lock On FC2, but like most Eastern European games it is full of bugs. I needed to reinstall. Now I have to import my profiles, game data, missions, ect.

I really should have no problems liking it, but I do.

Something about the way encounters are staged, having to shoot a guy with more than a full clip to down him, and the same repeated scenario of: 3 pieces of cover, x guys, take cover, shoot for 5 minutes, cut scene, ride a vehicle, defend a vehicle, get back on the ground, run into three pieces of cover with x guys....

To me it's like a slower, lumbering, less lethal version of Halo. I'll stop now. :p
