Re: What video/computer game are you currently playing?

On my game machine I'm playing Galactic Civilizations 2.

On this machine (my notebook) I'm playing LImbo.

I'll also play ES4: Oblivion on my gaming machine (got hundreds of mods installed) and COD Modern Warfare 2 (done the campaign, playing the Special Ops stuff) and Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter occasionally.

I've not yet purchased Skyrim. I'm waiting for the Legendary Edition to go on sale at Steam. I expect that I'll enjoy Skyrim more than most people would consider "healthy".

I bought Red Dead Redemption for the PS3 since it is supposed to be awesome and wasn't released on the PC...I'm intending to play it withing the next few months.

If you had no interest in reading about my current video gaming details, sorry to waste your precious time.

Anyone play the Witcher 2 for PC? I've heard it was a good RPG, and metacritic gives it 88 out of 100. It is on a Steam Sale this weekend for like $5.00.

I just bought it in the wee hours this morning.

I haven't played the first Witcher, (I own a Steam copy and plan to play it sometime this year hopefully) but watched about a 30 minute "first impressions" type of YouTube of it...and it looked really good (which is why I bought the first one).

I think that with an average user rating score of 9.1on IGN with over 1000 votes, it is a pretty safe bet that if sounds like the kind of game you like, you'll enjoy it.


IMO, you should play the first one if you haven't. It's only $2.50 right now and since it's a continuing story, I think you'll get more out of the second one if you play the first one...first.

I probably will indeed get the Witcher 1 and 2 bundle since 7.50 for the two games is a pretty sweet deal I think.

Also, here are some other deals via Get Loaded for UbiSoft titles: http://getloadedgo.com/

Nothing that I'd really pick up, but they seem like decent deals:

Yeah, I hear Witcher 1 and 2 are some of the best RPGs, so tell us how it goes, Andy.

Hell if I know, though I finally came head to head with Ancient Dragons. Those were a pain in the butt to deal with, and went through a ton of health potions as well. But right now, re-started the game as a High Elf with the Thief stone. Haven't gotten very far, only just finished the Dragon Rising quest.

Though I did find out that once you max out a skill tree at level 100, and you're at the point where many of your skill trees are advancing slowly because you're at a high level, you can do the "Legendary" thing which resets it back the base level, gives you all the skill points you put into it, and if it was something like the Destruction skill tree, you keep all the spells and what not you learned. And with heavily enchanted armor that nullifies Destruction cost, you can level up relatively quickly.

Go to the settings or whatever it's called while you're running around. Put that difficulty bar at the "75%" spot to the right. Oblivion doesn't make 'em smarter nor cause that much damage, but they stack their health points very much. I like it there because it forces you to play more efficiently (defensively), so I can't run in there like an idiot and bash everything with my hammer.

The hammer resolves all problems though--especially fetch quests.

So I haven't yet been able to play Witcher: 1, since Steam sold the game but ran out of keys to distribute. And it seems to be a lot of people, ha. Owners of the game from years ago also can't connect, for the same or unrelated reason? It isn't clear, but they are angry too.

So back to Civ 5 I go. Also, http://www.getgamesgo.com/ has Civ 5 plus the Gods and Kings first expansion, and DLC, on some discounts.

i've spent the last few days playing dustforce. it's a difficult precision platformer. i still can't SS five of the stages.

one cool thing about this game is the in-game high-score replay functionality. some of the top dustforce players are absolutely mindblowing...
