That.

How is the new Godfather game?
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Battlefield 2142, when it's not crashing.

That's about it really. Might check out the new Riddick game when it's released.

I've ran through the first city, and it's pretty good. It's like the first one, debugged, with better graphics and controls plus with expanded strategic aspect. After two hours of playing, I can say it's a worthy sequel. I'd give it a 8+/10 as for now.

WoW, BG2: ToB, sporadic Dungeon Crawl: Stone Soup.

Also, next week is TG'09 (huuuge LAN party), so there will probably be epic amounts of all sorts of multiplayer goodness.

I had to review EndWar for the Dutch site I work at, and god damn it, that game bored me. Besides, it's no fun and good use at all to bark into the headset 'cause:

1 ) irritate people around you (if there are)
2 ) it will get you tired in an hour
3 ) you are faster by pressing the buttons

Apart from that, the only fun thing I found in EndWar was the Xbox Live Campaign. Only Chrome Hounds did it better.

Pfff. I'm waiting for the new Riddick, tried the demo and got me hooked (again). Dishwasher (Xbox Live Arcade) looks fun. Apart from that, I'm still busy playing Fallout 3 and Oblivion.

1) i wouldn't dare play it with others around, way too embarrassing :P
2) i'm pretty sure if you get tired talking for an hour, you might want to think about your fitness rather than blame the game
3) i've yet to play a console rts that controls well, endwar with a controller is no different. definitely prefer the voice commands.

each to their own i guess ;D

Lufia: the legend returns - on a GB emulator.

a mostly overlooked RPG for the GB... I love it.
A unique 3X3 grid battle system.

the dungeons get a little boring towards the end though.

Just finished the Godfather 2. A very good game, I give it a 9/10 rating. The ending is too predictable though. It took me 8-9 hours to finish it overall.

Still waiting for teh Riddick.

Decided to see if all the fuss about Deus Ex was justified.

It is. I'm terrified of giving the wrong answers to someone with a code I want, or attacking people who may have friends with keys I need, or pissing off the wrong group early in the game.
