Planescape Torment. Always was and always will be the best game for me.

As for the Japanese, I picked up the Ultimate Sega Genesis Collection (or whatever it's called). 50 classic Sega titles. Lots of fun strolling down memory lane. And the unlockable content comes in two types, older arcade titles and interviews with the developers, subtitled of course.

Nice wallpaper. Gorgeous in fact. Too bad you couldn't decrease the image size though. Warning 1/3 for making me side scroll. ;)

I've been playing Dark Souls a lot lately, and it's simply awesome. It's supposed do be insanely difficult, but I find it's only difficult if you're not careful and rush into things. And since we're sharing wallpapers, here's a Dark Souls themed one. Sadly, with my brick the game is slightly less jolly :(

I've been wanting to play Dark Souls since its release. Haven't gotten around to it yet.

Dark Souls on the PS3. I haven't played this hard of a game in long while. I love it... and it's PSN Co-op!

How far along are you? The first mini-boss is a real wakeup call :)

::edit::

Days later, it occurs to me that I was slightly off my mark.

The first mini-boss is a real wake up call. Took me a few days to beat him. The difficulty is insane, but I love the challenge.

Alas, I have forsaken Dark Souls for Crusader Kings 2. I must admit, there is a certain satisfaction in seeing a back-water semi-noble family of britannic counts, and through diplomacy, deceit and warfare, turn them into the dukes, kings, and finally emperors of France - all in the span of six generations.

Back to Dark Souls for the moment, and I've encountered a boss that can only be described with one word: Teeth. Oh dear, the teeth...

I picked up a new laptop. Going to give DooM 3: Resurrection of Evil another go. That, and Diablo III will run better on this one. I'll actually beable to enjoy my copy.

Playing the Steam version of Kotor2 with the TSLRCM mod. You don't really notice the difference in the beginning, but from Nar Shaddaa (second planet after Telos), jeebus what a difference. Like playing a different (and much better) game.

I went looking for Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 this weekend (an AKJ request for some online gaming) and couldn't find it. To compensate for the disappointment I picked up Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe. Yeah, it's about three years old but it's still fun. And some of the combos are an absolute pain to pull off. And I mean that literally. Fighting games like this require some serious button mashing and it hurts the thumbs.

I've played all of the classes up to level 25 (of 100). They're all pretty fun. Haven't played multiplayer yet (Le frown). Right now, I'm playing a melee based outlander (originally a ranged class). So far, minus a few mass mobs, it's been the most successful one yet. The only issue I'm really having is that since I'm within melee range; I'm getting hit by a lot of elemental damage that I can't seem to mitigate.
