EvE online. Nasty learning curve sometimes, but it's particularly spectacular.

Me too... when I can get near the 360 that is! as are most of the people on my friends list.

The LCE is well worth it yeah and the book you get with it is actually pretty decent.

Quite enjoying it so far! Up to the Colosseum bit - it's seems pretty easy so far - i hope the puzzles get harder :P

Do you know if that'll work on xp 64bit? I was a big fan of Tomb Raider way back, but I haven't played it much recently.

I'm 3/4 the way through it now and I'm using XP64, no probs for me. Hope that's of any use to you. Very good game, I rate it a lot higher than Legends.

Just completed Bioshock on 360.

Without giving anything away, I will say I was impressed at the game on a whole except the ending. What a disapointment.

Yet again NO coop... so automatically I give this game less then a perfect 10.

8.5

What games am I playing?

Well..... I've been playing GuildWars pretty much since it came out, I bought the new expansion (Guild Wars: Eye of the North) and really hated it. I mean, the game's great and it's nice to have new content, the new areas are stunning, and I like the new races, but I spent four hours yesterday being continually pounded upon by massive groups of monsters which seemed to do four/five times the damage output that my little group was doing. You can only restart an area to get rid of your -60% DP so many times before you start to feel like crying. It took me 2 of those hours to grind my way through the Shards of Orr dungeon.....so as you can see, I'm not even very far into the game :(

Today though I decided to give World of Warcraft a try..... I got the game home at about 1 O'clock, and I've been sat here installing and downloading ever since. It took just over an hour for the game to install, 10 minutes to register, and the rest of the time to download the patches/updates (and I'm not even 50% of the way through yet).....

I'm sure it will be sweet when (if?) I finally get to play it though :)

How long did it take in the end? Did you install and update the Burning Crusade addon as well?

Was it worth it in the end?

I quite wow ages ago, the thought of installing and updating it all just puts me off totally now (& that's a good thing imo).

Completed Bioshock on Saturday, was pretty enjoyable... although some ******* posted spoilers all over another forum i was reading... which completely ruined the plot for me :(

Dunno what to play now.. MoA Airborne possibly... meh...

Re: what game are you playing
 
Bioshock for me - only played it for about 3 hours, but it's absolutely stunning. Visually, it's probably the best game I've played, and the 'plot' is brilliantly carried out.

10 out of 10 for me :tu:

Finished Bioshock on the weekend too, i was mad cos i was gypped out of my 40pts for completing the game on Hard, oh well. I think this one is done to death on another thread but i gave it 10/10 too.

I'm clearing the decks for Halo 3 which means finishing off Lost Planet and Godfather, i bought Gauntlet for £1 on XBLA when it was on a deal the other day and i may get Streets of Rage 2 also (love it). Basically just odds and sods for the next 2 weeks. Got a whole bunch of people clearing the decks ready and taking time off work for Halo 3! Sad i know.

I also want to know when Speedball 2 is coming out, i've got it for the Amiga on 512 and for the CD32 but i want it tarted up on the 360 XBLA!

It’s just a very repetitive 'game' to be honest. I won't be keeping it that's for sure. Even playing against others it looses its fun element quite quickly. I've got to expert on just a few categories but even that doesn't inspire you to pick up and play it anymore...

Stuck on Portal, the level where you knock off about 5 of those gunners with the rotating ball of light throwing thingy, but not I can't see how to complete it (can't get that platform to move). Good game though.

Yep you have to be very fast to get that platform moving. It involved the switch to the left. You need to line up the portal with the door above to the left then another were every the ball is about to hit the wall then as soon as the ball comes through the portal make another to your left on the little bit of sticking out wall and one next to you quickly go through hit the switch and if timed right the ball should go in just in time. kepp in mind that the door only stays open for about 3 seconds.

Now reading that back it probably makes no sense lol so good luck with it :)

Re: what game are you playing
 
Gone back to, and finished, HL2 as I thought HL2 EP2 was boring! No new weapons (The Magnusson Device is an exception as it's a 'plot' device), 2 new enemies I could see 'Hunter' and 'Worker Antlion' (Advisors don't count as you can't fight them), same old gameplay, too short and no where near as challenging as HL2! The Striders in EP2 are pussys compared to those in HL2!!

So why is everyone raving about it?

Re: what game are you playing
 
COD4 of course which is top banana but I can't help feeling being a bit let down a bit by the brevity of the campaign mode.

SVR2008 - well what can I say other than the game is completely broken beyond comprehension. The graphics are nice but the controls are dumbed down to kindergarten level, there are less grapple moves, the "24/7" mode in lieu of a plot is rubbish and you can't manually change focus on another opponent which is really annoying. Massive letdown, THQ should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.
