I had laryngitis a few weeks back and I wanted something different to play so I went to the f2p section on steam. I started playing 'Aura Kingdom' thinking to myself "I can delete it when I get bored". I'm still playing it, and haven't really been playing anything else except mobile games, that game really stands on it's own merits.

Been playing Guild Wars 2 in preparation for the Tournament of Glory. Just started playing again and got invited to join my new guilds team after playing with them for 4 days. Its so nice to be wanted :3
Other than that nothing much really. Bit of Dark Souls 2 and Magic 2015 when the mood strikes me.

I have been playing EVE online for about a week, but feeling kinda put off the whole thing by the super-try-hards in the community telling me that I was playing it wrong. Now I don't really feel like playing anything :'(

Absolutely nothing for the past six weeks, and I can't find a shred of desire to play anything at all. The last few times I played I wound up having really bad experiences with others.

Maybe I'd play something if I knew I was going to have fun instead of having people coming down on me.
Exactly my problem right now. People get too concerned that you're not having fun right, and with the best of intentions, ruin your experience trying to set you straight.

Lately it's been Desktop Dungeons and Heroes of Might and Magic 3 In the Wake of Gods, and I'll be playing The Sims 4 in a couple days.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines!

It required some fiddling to get it to work, but my goodness, am I in love with this game. The music is great, the voice acting is great (for the most part), the dialogue is great, the atmosphere is amazing.

Everything about it is great, as far as I am concerned... except for the combat. It is a little bit clunky, and boss fights required some serious cheesing in order for me to survive, but maybe that is because I am playing as a squishy Tremere vampire.

But yes. It is wonderful stuff. I would easily place it in a list of "best RPGs ever made".

I very recently played through New Super Mario Bros 2 again and, beat Dishonored five-ways from Sunday. So now that I'm through with those, I've moved back to Pokemon Y (I want to finish the narrative at least...I keep telling myself) and, I'm giving Xenoblade Chronicles another chance. A couple of nights ago when Shulk was revealed for Smash officially, I said to myself 'I'm going to give this game another chance' and just like that I lost about 3 or 4 hours of my evening and had beaten up Xord. I'm still disappointed by how much closer to the beginning I am than I am to the freaking midpoint. I still haven't beaten Deus Ex: HR-DX so I may go back to that and if I end up actually having left over money I may get an eShop card for Takamaru, Gunvolt or...or maybe just Mario Kart DLC...I don't even know. I want Theatrhythm: CC now...

I've just picked up Civ 5 and have already had 2 concurrent days of going to bed at dawn. I'm also currently playing Borderlands 2, but the guy I'm playing it with has just moved and doesn't have internet.

Hm... mostly Awesomenauts and Firefall

So pretty much wasting my time with online-play.

If anyone says anything to me about the story or the ending, I will end you.
Sorry, but the correct term is I will destroy you [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mi2NKZ37YE].

edit: Oh yeah I'm playing through the Prince of Persia series atm. Still had it lying around, never got to finishing it because Sands of Time starts off kinda... lame. But the ending is excellent and I'm at Warrior Within atm.

Phew... let's see... There is quite a lot of stuff that I've started with but haven't finished, yet.

My first playthrough of Diablo 3 on PS4 was completed yesterday. Will definately not be my last. Diablo 3 is one of those games I potentially never uninstall because you don't really finish it.

I have started with 'Danganronpa 2' on Friday. Then I read that you 'can but shouldn't' play it without finishing the first one. So I'm currently waiting for the postman.

Aside from these two I'm wanting to finish Assassin's Creed 3, Arkham Origins, Kingdom Hearts HD, Final Fantasy X HD and a lot more.

That. And loads of visual novel style games like Dual Destinies, Virtue's Last Reward and the occasional Layton.



Hmmm... I guess I should take control of my backlog a bit.

I have quite the back log but at the moment, I am playing toy soldiers (it was £1 on steam!), I finally got a new PS4 controller so I have gotten to the first time you meet the runners (or something) in the last of us, play a round or two on UFC every so often, started playing Black ops 2 again.

Yeah, I am kind of a flaky gamer at the moment ... I did want to hardcore focus on TLOU but my controller/movement issues killed my mood for it.

My grandfather let me borrow his PS3 so I can finally try the exclusives I wanted to play for years. I don't have much time though since school started, but this weekend I decided to treat myself to Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. I finished it this weekend too, I liked it a lot!

I got both Metro Redux and Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 back on August 26.

I've been alternating between the two and the emotional whiplash is jarring to say the least. I just finished both Metro 2033 and Last Light Redux and I'll probably play through 'em both again soon to 100% them.

Am playing way too much Kerbal Space Program at the moment. It's even consuming a lot of brain cycles during the day when I'm not playing.
I am trying to get to Duna (KSP's Mars analogue for those who don't play) and back and the mission I have designed seems capable if only I could get the original encounter right. My finesse with the controls may not be up to snuff.
Other than that I finished season 2 of The Walking Dead over the weekend and turned on GTA V for an hour or two of simple dicking around fun.

Any other escapists playing KSP? Got any tips on how to get a decent encounter with Duna?
