Waiting for the Elder Scrolls Online to come out for X Box. Also waiting for the new Sherlock Holmes game, Crimes and Punishment.  :)

Just last night I dug out my old games; I've been playing Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time again. Probably one of my top two favorite games of all time.

I'm 155 hours into a playthrough of Skyrim. My goal is to hit 1000 hours before I go to beat Alduin. I haven't even visited High Hrothgar yet. I wonder what month and year it will be by the end if I can do this...  ???

I got Project Zomboid (beta) on steam.  Pretty fun with PS1 graphics.  Also played a couple games of Age of Mythology last night.  Been a long time since I played that!

Age of Mythology just re-released in a package on Steam -- I've been debating if it was worth picking up a copy since there will be some interest again...

I played Age of Empires but never did get a copy of Age of Mythology.

Lately, I've been playing 007 Legends on the 360. Recently, I bought a 2DS, too, and I bought Bravely Default with it.

Right now, I need to figure out what games I'm going to play when. I have a long backlog.

It is an interesting game. It works a bit different than previous games though you can see some elements being carried on in AoE III.

Been playing Baldur's Gate on my new Nexus 7 (2012). It's surprisingly much more intuitive than I would've ever expected, and it's a blast so far. I'm about to hit up Cloakwood. These are a couple older screenshots where a thunderstorm randomly saves the day with a couple well-placed lightning strikes, back-to-back finishing off two enemies:

I've been working, and haven't had as much time to play games. Guess I'll try again this weekend. :)

I wish they would also make an online version of the Family Feud for X Box. I like that show! :)

So, I recently purchased Dragon Age Origins- Ultimate Edition due to a Steam deal. And, lo and behold, it actually works on my laptop.
Needless to say, I haven't been doing much else the past couple of days  ;D

Prototype. I played through it once with minimal civilian casualties, trying to act as I would act if put in the character's situation, but now I'm just going through it carelessly to unlock everything.

I understand that the second one features a Roman Catholic protagonist who goes to his priest for missions (and possibly confession?). Definitely gonna check that one out when I'm finished.

This profile is defunct as of 11/8/2017. I created it before Orthodoxy, and have used it after Orthodoxy.

I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

I will likely lurk on this forum under a different name.

I just picked up the free plants v zombies myself, last night.  I never had gotten around to playing it. A nice change of pace.

Origin does these free offers from time to time. If you have an account it's probably worth logging in to see what's available.

I own Plants vs Zombies from like 6 different sources and platforms - iOS, Android(free through Amazon), Xbox 360, Origin(free), BigFish Games(free), and I think Steam but not sure.

It's definitely a great game. The shooter spin-off, Garden Warfare, is also pretty good too. I barely played PvZ2, but what I did play was a bit disappointing with it's "free-to-play" model.

Plants vs Zombies Adventures is a decent Facebook game, but also suffers from f2p nonsense.

219 hours...

Generally I just play while listening to the baseball game each day... that way I kill two birds with one stone entertainments with one arrow to the knee.

Plants v Zombies has been a riot -- I'm enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would. There's so much detail in what seemed like such a simple game. Now I see why it was such a phenomenon...

Next up for me is Europa Universalis IV, which was 75% off on Steam last week. I'd been wanting to pick up a copy forever, and just could not resist!

I bought a Nintendo 2DS recently. I bought Bravely Default to play on it, but I've spent all my time playing Virtual Console and downloadable games.

I want the upcoming Super Smash Bros and the new Kid Icarus game released last November for it.

I miss Doom sometimes.  There was a time, back before they got rid of Holy DOS, that I had this Doom/Doom2 mod that put in an aiming cursor.  I think they just copied Doom into the Quake engine or something.  Lots of fun.

I still remember that Quake didn't have a cursor by default, and it had to be turned on every time you played by entering certain text commands into the console. Good times.

Oh, and you'll need the Doom 2 wad. You can buy that cheap on Steam. Alternatively, it's widely available by unscrupulous means; they're way beyond enforcing the copyright on it.
