    Hi all

    After a long slow patch things seem to have gone crazy on the games front and I have just seemed to be buying the constantly recenty. Over the last month,

    Fable II
    Fallout 3
    Gears of War 2
    GH: World Tour (full bundle)
    PES2009
    Left for Dead

    and may well pick up Rock Band 2 (solus) at the end of the week!

    I have lent out fable to a mate and mostly playing fallout (stunning game) and am alternating between playing the other on xbox live.

    Whats other people playing at the min?

    I loved neverwinter nights they just released it at a bad time, going against Blizzard in ANY capacity is not smart...

    I honestly believe it was a better game then Diablo 2 but Blizz has name brand recognition....

    I have been playing D2 alot since I am anticipating D3 in the first half of next year...

    If anyone wants to play add: mlakrid on Bnet...

    Yup, twice :D

    I bought them all as seperates when they each came out.

    My NWN2 special edition came with them all on a single dvd and installer :)

    Same here complete with tacky plastic troll (or what everr it was) and some dodgy ring which will most likely make your finger go green

    I left them in the plastic wrap in the box :)

    I bought the special edition in an effort to encourage Atari to keep making D&D CRPGS :)

    yeah.... seriously crazy in the world of gaming.... ESPECIALLY PC Gaming. hell, PC's haven't seen this many GOOD games released in such a short amount of time in a LONG time. Hell.... in just the past month, i've bought 4 games that i can think of right off the top of my head (at least i think it's been just about exactly a month)

    FarCry 2
    Fallout 3
    WoW: Wrath of the Lich King (expansion... i know.... but still considered a game)
    Left 4 Dead (Pre-ordered on Steam... downloaded.... still haven't touched since it's release due to the previously mentioned game)

    Also plan on buying Prince of Persia when it's released for PC.... and probably a gamepad for my PC to go along with it (since as we all know, PoP on a keyboard BLOWS! And i'm sure there are probably others i've been eyeballing... but just can't remember them right now.

    i'm assuming the wired pad? don't really feel like spending the cash on the wireless one if it works for PC as well.... not to mention don't wanna buy batteries or a recharge kit.

    and indy.... i wouldn't rush it. I haven't touched FarCry 2 for a while now... and i'm not even 20% through the game. Just kinda lost interest.... with the whole need to do missions to get malaria medication and such (epk: does that ever go away later in the game? if not that'd be SERIOUSLY irritating since the game seems kinda long as hell, at least if you wanna get money and get a lot of weapons)

    mm.. sadly, that never goes away
    yeah, its quite boring and irritating..

    but, when u start getting the cool sniper rifles the game becames a load of fun :]

    oh, and the game is really long compared to contemporary ones.. takes a while to get used to

    I've been playing Warhammer Online and then me and the wife to be got a Wii for Christmas (that we have already hooked up) so a bit of Wii sports, Wii Play, and Super Mario Galaxy. :D

    I wanted to try Left 4 Dead but for some crazy reason Valve pulled the demo and lost my $50. Other then that perhaps the EQ2 expansion for me .. nothing that interesting on the PC front. :(
