Re: what game are you playing

Championship Manager 01/02 season with the latest data update. It's sad I'm playing a game that's now 10 years old however with the speed of computers these days I can whizz through a season within about 6 hours. The data updates I download are very detailed and up to date with the latest transfers and players.

I've tried all the newer version however personally I believe the series hit an all time high with Champ Manager 01/02 in terms of playability and simplicity. The newer versions are far too complicated.

Operation Flashpoint Red River... really enjoying it up to now. Bit of a flawed masterpiece in all honesty though, looks like they've used the AI code from the original game and the graphics are a bit crude. Feels like a blast from the past.

plus the ability to add managers and control your opposition, which means your can basically sell yourself all the best players for whatever price you want!!!

If you didn't have to wait ages time and time again on those cut scenes at the start and end of levels it would have been a lot better. When you do get past that the game is quite enjoyable though.

Yes it is, mainly due to the seemingly unlimited healing system so it's a bit more COD-like in difficulty curve terms. There's still the hardcore mode for those who want more challenge. The squad system and co-op is brilliant though although it doesn't quite reach the heady heights of GRAW/2.

With you on the cut scenes there peanut, it's a very frustrating bit of lazy coding that.

Re: what game are you playing

I love driving games; but not track-based ones. Love the original "Need For Speed" series; ie not Shift, etc. Finished the latest, Hot Pursuit, a while ago but still keep going back to it.

My list for this year includes Portal 2, Mirror's Edge 2 and possibly Duke Nukem Forever.

Also love CounterStrike, but haven't played it in ages.

Not tried TDU2 yet? worth a try now they've sorted a lot of the early bugs out.

Tried the original but couldn't get into it. Might have a look at 2 at some point but not too bothered based on the original.
