What are you currently playing?

Post by djcarlos » Sat Jan 27, 2007 6:50 pm

Apologies if there is already a "currently playing" thread....I couldn't find one here, but I spotted one on the Games TM forums.

I'll start us off with my "current" list...

Sensible Soccer 2006 (it takes a LONG time to win all those leagues & cups!)
Gran Turismo 4 (ditto)
Marvel Ultimate Alliance (two player co-op with the wife)

...and about to replay Metal Gear Solid again.

I actually quite like Sensi 06 even though it got panned.

So there. 8)

PS I have actually just installed The Ur-Quan Masters, so that's about to get underway too. All this AND I have time to work?

I'm currently on my annual playthrough of Monkey Islands 1 and 2, but apart from that I'm dipping into WoW: The Burning Crusade now and again, and the perennial character slaughter of Angband.

I've had far too much college work to be playing for long periods, but I have been playing around with MAME a lot. The games I am currently playing are:

- Rad Mobile
- Outrun
- Aero Fighters 1, 2 & 3
- Jurassic Park
- Dungeons and Dragons: Shadow over Mystara
- Dragon Blaze
- Dragon Spirit
- Dragon Sabre
- Dragon Gun

You can probably tell from this list that I'm still obsessed with dragons! :D

I love Angband, me - I won it twice last year, with a High-Elf Ranger and a Dunadan Warrior.
I think I'll have to stop buying games for a while though. Take a look at this list of "works in progress"

PC: Medieval- Total War, Icewind Dale series, Rogue Trooper
Xbox: Freedom Fighters, Fahrenheit, Mace Griffin, Mercenaries
360: Prey, Tomb Raider: Legend, Oblivion, Gears of War, LotR, Dead Rising
GP2X: Doom, Heretic, Flight of the Amazon Queen, Beneath a Steel Sky, The Ur-Quan Masters

There's more. I seem to have been having trouble maintaining my attention span long enough to see many games through to the end lately. Though I did finally get around to completing X-Men Legends last week, after having owned it for about a year.
Why retro? Because you never forget your first love.

As I said in a lost post, I was playing Sonic Spinball to re-acquaint myself. Since then, I'm playing Final Fight in the Retroleague and trying out Vanguard on the PC too.

Probably going to buy Mr. Robot this weekend after having fun with the demo.
