I tried out some of the Halo: CEA map remakes this weekend. Thus far they are my favorite Reach maps.  :)

Bought a used GameCube today so that I could play some of the games I still have for it. Right now, I'm playing Sonic Adventure 2. I think playing Sonic Generations got me nostalgic. However, I left my memory card at home before I came back to school.

I still like playing Super Mario Bros Deluxe for the Game Boy Color; the original Super Mario game is my favorite (the one where the graphics are very simple and your only power-up is a fire flower). For those of you who like horror games, I'm a fan of the Silent Hill series (only the first four though since those are the ones made my Team Silent). I own Silent Hill and Silent Hill 2, and I shall get Silent Hill 3 and Silent Hill 4: The Room later. I love playing Madden and NBA Live. I also like Steam games (Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike Source, Team Fortress 2, Garry's Mod, etc.).

Oh man, am I waiting for the release of the downloadable content for Skyrim. I will jump for joy if somebody fixed the glitch that makes the city of Solitude still be on fire, even after I won the war.  8)

I just bought a used Gamecube from a local game store. Been blasting away at some of my old favorites. Unfortunately, I left some of my collection at home. *sigh*

I also left my memory card back home, so I had to buy a new one and start from scratch.

I haven't been able to get any new games for a while, so I've just been playing tons of Call of Duty: Black Ops. I've been thinking- the next COD game set during WWII really needs to do something new. My suggestion is to focus on resistance around the world. For example, French Resistance Soviet Partisans for Europe; for Asia do China and the Phillipines. For extra spice try tackling the Italian anti-fascist resistance. Of course I doubt the folks at Treyarch have the imagination to try something like this.

I would then play COD again. That sounds amazing.

I see. I've been avoiding the Civil War quests thus far. The roleplaying aspect is big for me, and my character tries to stay above politics, although he has Imperial sympathies that may develop as time goes on.

Well, I've been giving my new used Gamecube some quality time playing Sonic Adventure 2. It's one of those rare games I just never seem to get tired of. Sort of like Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country 2.

Conker's Bad Fur Day

OMG YESSSSSSSSSS

I know it's awesome right?

TBH I didn't know it existed until last week (I got the Rom for my N64 emulator), bc I was like 10 when it came out. But I'm loving it so far, it's kind of like a more adult version of Donkey Kong 64, but funnier.

It had the best multiplayer since Goldeneye. Unfortunately the sequel was not good at all.

Anyone ever play Tales of Vesperia? One of my favorite games.

I have a hobby of collecting various figurines & statuettes. They're mostly anime these days, but I have others. When I saw this figure of Yuri from Vesperia, I knew I had to place an order, heh.

Does anyone else ever have this problem in Pokemon White? I'm double battling an NPC and both my Pokemon get KO'ed at the same time. Then when I go to send others in, I get the same message on each Pokemon I try to send in, "[name] cannot be switched out!" My only choice is to reset.

Good for you. I have played Skyrim for a gazillion, zillion hours. I almost look up for dragons when I leave the house.  :)

Heh.  While driving home from the store the other day, I remarked to my wife, "Is it a bad sign that I have this strong urge to stop and harvest those purple flowers in that yard?"  I don't know anyone around here that would buy the potions from me, though. :-\

Crusader Kings II, would highly recommend it for anyone who likes historical strategy games. In my current game I've been playing as the Norman Duke(s) of Apulia (the descendants of Robert Guiscard) and married into Greek Orthodoxy, finally converted, then swore fealty to Byzantium, and was recently crowned King of Sicily after driving the Moslems out. :) Unfortunately the current Byzantine Basileus has turned into a complete tyrant and has been centralizing authority left and right, making me regret my decision to make myself a vassal of the Empire.

How's it compare to Crusader Kings?  I enjoyed the first one, but at times it just seemed to lack...something.  What are some improvements and drawbacks in your opinion, when compared to the first?

CK2 improves significantly on UI, graphics, and AI, and is much more polished than the original. People are still singing its praises on the forum, and to give an even better idea, it has a 10% higher rating on Megacritic. Icing on the cake, they're planning on adding more major features for free in addition to DLC. I'm really hoping for one that renovates Byzantium or Eastern Europe, as well as the Papacy.

Drawbacks... well, there aren't many that comes to mind. I guess some of the new features, such as mayors or the education system, could have been better implemented. But I have high hopes for future additions and it's a solid game as-is.

EDIT: I just remembered, I was driven crazy by the fact there was no difference in portrait appearance between Catholic and Orthodox bishops. Luckily I've installed a mod to fix that (just a sample of the vestments, in-game they have full facial hair):

After watching vids of crusader kings 2 all morning I was all psyched up to go out and buy the game. Two problems, none of the stores near me have it, and my graphics card would need to be upgraded to play it. Blah. I'll have to wait a couple months and then get it through an online seller (once I have a stable net connection of my own).

After watching vids of crusader kings 2 all morning I was all psyched up to go out and buy the game. Two problems, none of the stores near me have it, and my graphics card would need to be upgraded to play it. Blah. I'll have to wait a couple months and then get it through an online seller (once I have a stable net connection of my own).
Even the boxed versions are connected to digital carriers and require online activation so you might as well buy the digital version directly. Most people buy from Steam or Gamersgate (I prefer the latter myself). Shame about the graphics card but there is a demo you can try to see if it does work.

I've been playing through an old half-completed file of Final Fantasy VI for the SNES (known in those days as FF3). Still love the game, but I had almost completely forgotten what I was supposed to be doing in the World of Ruin. I'm slowly remembering.

Also, I've been playing Donkey Kong Country 3, also on the SNES.

I'm a vintage guy. :P
