    Default History & Future

    Okay, i've been looking a bit and the Orien forum posts, are kinda low and slow at the moment. Plus, again, im slightly bored >.>. So, what are some of the games you guys have played in the past besides ddo? What are some of the games coming out soon that you've been looking forward to and/or dying to play? Please if you can list pros and cons for the games you list.

    Feel free to list games from any system; Atari to Ps2 to the fun little computer you might be on right now, unless you are looking at these forums on your phone, which makes you slightly...odd.

    I used to play kingdom of loathing online, and it was quite fun, but I got to the top of the heap and the game had started to feel more like a chore than fun, so had wandered off. Still very happy with my time there.

    Also, been doing a bit of skyrim as of late. I think I like it, but I like to remake toons quite often, and the inability to skip the opening montage is annoying me. Also, as best I can tell, you can't have two different tracks of savegames going, but I could be missing something there.

    Other than that, not much, just a bit of Chrono Trigger and such. Don't have as much time as I used to.

    Not pictured: a lot of old games that I play(ed) on emulators.

    Like a lot of people, I buy games during sale time and then never play them. It doesn't help that I play DDO. If I wasn't so addicted I'd quit.

    I'd really really like to play L4D1/2, AOE2/3 and Civ5 with people I know but everyone at my college plays League of Legends/Battlefield/Call of Duty/Minecraft and literally nothing else.

    Played it for 5 whole years, it was amazingly fun until i had the same feeling of a chore. If you were in KOL Addicts we might have crossed paths.

    I posted a list of games I used to play, and then the forums had a hiccup. What follows is the short version of my lost post. Apologies for the brevity.

    Played in the past:
    Final Fantasy II - IV
    Baldur's Gate I & II (including add-ons)
    Icewind Dale
    Fallout 1 & 2
    Neverwinter Nights I & II (only add-ons for I)
    Warcraft III
    Warhammer 40k (including add-ons).
    Starcraft: Broodwar (one of the few played as multiplayer games)
    CounterStrike 1.6 (multiplayer, too, obv)
    Diablo II: LoD (1.09 to 1.12, still playing this offline)

    Recent enjoyable Games:
    Portal
    Super Crate Box
    Super Meat Boy
    Stealth Bastard
    NotTetris2

    Looking forward to:
    Shadowrun Returns

    Just wondering, did you mean Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance for the Ps2?

    I was Sarghi on there, and started out in a clan from another game I had played earlier (Evernight/Monarchy) but spent much of my time in Hogs of Destiny followed by Noblesse Oblige. I was in some other clan, but I'll be damned if I could remember who at this point. I had a five-digit ID and all but have been away for 2+ years.

    Nope.

    I'm referring to the original PC games from the late 90s/early 00s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baldur's_Gate_(series)), which got recently re-released as enhanced edition with a tablet PC support

    You should try the Mask of Betrayer addon for 2 if you own it. One of the best RPG experiences around.

    Past:
    too many to remember, but in recent past I played TItan Quest excessively as well as Super Metroid (had a nostalgia attack)

    Currently playing:

    Path to Exile open beta
    God of War: Ascension
    Starcraft 2: Heart of The Swarm

    DDO lost its flavor by implementing Astral Shards.
    Characters on Orien:
    Wanzer/ Klingtanz/ Incanta Superior/ Mercantus

    Actually, I bought MotB, but I was very uneasy with in-game time being a resource. I stopped playing shortly after everything became black and white and one had to hurry. I might pick it up again.
