What are you playing now ?
« on: December 23, 2010, 12:17:15 AM »
I play nothing. I have acquired The Loungest Journey almost a year ago, but haven't got time (or HDD space) to play it. But I have played Syberia 2, and it's superb.

So, what are you playing ? screenshots are welcomed.

EDIT:
Oh no, it's not showing on the index page.

I play FreeCiv now and again, and Battle for Wesnoth. Strategy and/or RPGs have the most long term appeal for me. Apart from that, I occasionally fire up old C64 and Amiga games... And I keep on having phases where I play some puzzle game manically for a few weeks because it's easy to get in 5 minutes here and 5 minutes there, often flash games. Most recently: http://www.jeanffy.com/haxe/haxealchemyst

At the moment I fantasize about writing my own bastard combination of Chambers of Shaolin, International Karate and Last Ninja, as they're some of my old favorites that I occasionally go back and play. Getting time for it is another matter.

On my PC:

Battle for Wesnoth (single player and multi)
Steel Storm (indie shoot em up in beta)
Penumbra (just getting started on this one)
Osmos and Revenge of the titans (indies, both good for a quick game)

On my miggy:

Historyline (grinding my way through the levels as the Germans)
Legions of Dawn (but yikes is it hard)
Quick games of various stuff. Turrican 2 and Deep Core have gotten a lot of play lately.

It won't do - nothing does when its in the coffee house forums. You might want to speak to a mod about shifting it to a more suitable location outside of the coffee house :)

Guys, you are my opposites, I like adventure, you like strategy (and RPG). All I ever played strategy wise
were Megalomania (Amiga, and I think it was strategy, must've been), Civilization AGA (A1200) and Railroad Tycoon (PC - 486). They were really fun but I got kinda impatient after those. RPG ? well, what was it's name "Black Crypt" I believe. My friend liked RPGs alot, notably Dungeon Master, EYe of The Beholder and the like. I liked to watch but not play. I tried getting into them through "Black Crypt" (?) since it looked interesting for me, but it just didn't happen. I think Point'n'Click adventure games are my top favorite genre, have always loved them and still do.

I forgot to mention emulation, of course I do play from time to time, who can not ? Not so much Arcade anymore, mostly NES, SNES, Genesis (Mega Drive), and of course Amiga. On nintendo systems It's mostly the Zelda series. On SEGA it's usually some random platformer. On Amiga again platformer as that's what I had most of and feel most nostalgic about (P'n'C adventure games (except for monkey island 1) are better played in ScummVM). One of my favs was Prophecy: the Viking Child (lol), somewhat obscure game only ruined by the insanely primitiv jumping "physics": First up, then down with no acceleration whatsoever. The atmosphere and music was pretty sweet.

Eve online is probably as close to Frontier that you get when playing a modern MMO. It's not for the faint of heart though. And yes, it's a point'n click game! :)

As for miggy games, I've been playing 1869 quite a lot recently.

I can't really move it to the amiga gaming forum as it's not amiga specific (and considering Kesa's alien breed thread was moved here from there, that would be hypocritical to say the least). This is actually the most appropriate forum but as it's not visible, I can only suggest "other operating systems" as an alternative. I think that one shows up.

There's quite a few mentions of Amiga games in this thread. I'd say it qualifies for the gaming section.

I love futuristic games (and movies), but prefer them in the P'n'C Adventure and FPS genres :)
