Earlier, installed DM of MM SP demo. The Dark Messiah of Might & Magic SP demo was quite good -- but was over way too quickly, to suit me.

It's basically Arx Fatalis w/ much better graphics, some physics, more action-orientated gameplay, and a easier (and much better) magic system.

Hmm, I still wonder why I never played Arx Fatalis.. I had never even really heard of it until sometime around 2004/05. It's really weird how that one slipped under my radar.. I think I kept confusing it was Arcanum or something, or I thought it was another weird Civ kinda game.

I'm playing Okami, just like everyone else here is and I'm also playing Megaman ZX for the DS. Its a little tough but I'm having a good amount of fun with it, its good to play a platformer again with great looking sprites and animation.

I just played through the FEAR: Extraction Point DEMO.

Now I remember what I loved so much about FEAR.....combat in that game is intense, vicious, and flat-out rules. :)

Just played a bit of Arx. It's pretty awkward and stiff in terms of control. It also seems prone to crashing. It has some pretty good elements, but because the graphics are dated the overall appeal is not impressive, especially with the permanent fog. It looks a lot like Heretic II. I'm sure I would have appreciated more had I played it in its day.

Graphics aside, it just feels too awkward for me to continue playing. The interaction, the magic system, and the inventory just don't feel "right." This might be one of those games I'd rather watch than play.

I'll have to be patient and wait for Dark Messiah!

Make sure you patch it up to the newest version -- b/c that kills many of the game's bugs.....out the box, it was basically "beta in a box...."

W/ Arx all patched up: I had trouble w/ it crashing all the time on my older PC, but it ran great on my new one. Never had an issue w/ it.

Arx did look great, for its day....

All this Arx talk makes me wanna go play it some more.....hehe. I do need to finish it. It is good stuff.

I liked Arx's hand-to-hand/melee combat. For its time, it was very good. Still holds up quite well, if you ask me. And the violence is sweet, w/ the "Fatalities" and all for final blows -- depending on where you swing and how powerful it is, you can sever body parts: torsos, legs, arms, and heads.

I really did like how Arx can let you switch b/t the "mouse cursor" mode and the "regular mode" for when dealing w/ inventory and talking and stuff.

Arx's magic system is something you'll really have to learn -- to be honest, it's for Arx experts, I'd say. B/c you might have to also remember what rune combo does what. You can always do an autocast, though. Me, I prefer the magic system in Dark Messiah. Namely, I find the biggest problem is that b/c Arx doesn't allow you to "pause" when drawing. I don't mind drawing the runes and all, but it can get tough to draw when in actual combat to actually draw it right....

Yeah I patched it up to v1.17 (latest patch I could find on 3D Gamers), and it still crashes to desktop occasionally.

I'm not much of a magic user, so I'm not too reliant on using spells. I just use them for convenience, like lighting torches, speed, invisibility, etc. So I'm not too worried about the magic system as of yet..  In general I prefer to do things the old fashioned way (even in Oblivion the only magic I use are Invisibility, Night Eye, and Detect Life). I'm gonna play it some more, see if I can get the hang of it, but if it crashes too much on me I'll jsut quit.

Speaking of Oblivion, I just got back into it and this time I tried out the Mehrune's Razor plugin. It's a pretty sweet mod, and I just acquired Mehrune's Razor! Oddly enough I discovered the mesh for the dagger was already in the game, the plugin just uses it.. Weird..

I just got my first atste of Prince of Persia The Two Thrones! A friend of mine just got it on his Xbox, and man is this game sweet. I only saw the beginning of the game, but it's clear that it works very well with it predecessors.

As you play, you collect "Sand Credits" which allow you unlock artwork. A little thing I noticed is that the unlockables are from all three games!

One thing they added that I LOVE is stealth kills! The game isn't stealth oriented, it's the same gameplay as before, but remember those times when an enemy was not facing you, and he hasn't noticed you yet? Well, now you can kill him quickly and quietly. The stealth kills aren't as simple as push a button and it's done, there's a bit of timing skill required. When you push the Y button, it will intiate the Stealth Kill sequence, and then it will signal you to push X for each strike to complete a successful stealth kill. If you push the X button too early or too late, well it fails and you have to fight the old fashioned way. It's pretty cool, I really like it! It's like an Arab Ninja game! So I'm happy :D Now, I'll have to ensure that Ubisoft release a Trilogy pack for PC!

I have Warrior Within. I am planning to probably get Sands of Time soon; my Best Buy nearby has that for $10, in a small jewel case.

I do like Warrior Within, but it's often trying too hard, in many cases. I don't mind The Prince w/ his new dark and rough attitude and all, but the rock music sounds way too generic and some of the game seems way-over-the-top and often forced. I don't mind the cussing, but it does sound forced by the voice-actor. And, I don't mind excessive violence, but it just seems like every swing I make results in someone dying horribly -- that just get boring and repetitive. At least w/ Arx Fatalis, it likely won't be a decaptiation or a torso be sliced in half w/ every last strike on an enemy; it's just here and there.

The thing is w/ The Two Thrones, I really want Ubi to remove that bloody Starforce in a patch or something. I'll probably scoop that up, sooner of later -- especially if they remove that SF in a patch. If they remove SF in a patch, I'll go buy that game ASAP. Until then, I'll wait for a price drop....

Interesting. I bet that Razor item was planned to be in the game, but just didn't make it for when they planned to put Oblivion out.

Hmmm....I wonder if that entire Mehrunes' Razor quest was planned for the Oblivion game, but was cut out due to time constraints.

I really hope they plan to put all of those plug-in's on disc sometime....If so, they'll get a sale from me...

I just discovered Gitaroo Man Lives! (PSP).  This game is going to hook me.  I can feel it.  Thing is, I don't even like DDR.  It's a bit of a shock that I like this.  And of course, Okami continues to dominate my game-playing time.

I'm not really "currently playing it yet", but earlier today, I reinstalled XIII onto my new PC.

After having trouble w/ Uru: Complete b/c of Coypright protection (Safedisc, pretty much...), installing the SafeDisc driver fix from Microsoft, and eventually getting that going by having to install Ubi's latest file fix for Uru: Complete, I figured what the hell w/ XIII --  try it again! That was another game that had issues w/ Safedisc and locating the CD. A while back, it wouldn't run -- but I wouldn't have any of that, so I uninstalled it out of frustration.

So today, I reinstalled XIII onto my PC. Installed the 1.3 Patch for it. Funny enough, bam -- it worked!!!

Wo0t!!!

XIII had a lot of potential to be great. I enjoyed the gameplay in general; the movement, the shooting, the satisfying kills. However the game fell short with a few things. I think one of the most annoying things about it was the Checkpoint save system, which seemed kinda buggy too. I hate it when devs don't give you the option to save whenever you want, especially in a FPS.

I created my character -- and that was about it, b/c I am in the midst of already a bunch of games.

Graphically, looks great in full 3D and all. The controls are pretty good, too. :)

Yeah Quake 4 was awesome, and 'that part' was pretty sweet ;D

Right now, I am entranced in the world Faerűn.. NWN2 has sucked me in.

I got Splinter Cell Double Agent (early birthday present ;D), unfortunately my system can't run it because it absolutely requires Shader Model 3.0 and My Radeon X850 Pro (as powerful as it is) is only capable of SM 2.0. Since I'm sticking with ATi, and I'm not buying a new motherboard any time soon, my only option is the Radeon X1650 Pro AGP (Thank God! I won't have to switch to PCIe for a little longer!). Rumour has it ATi will be released an AGP version of the Radeon X1950 as well, it's expected to be released before the end of the year, so I might wait for it, but considering its price will be close to $300 I might just go for the X1650 (I found it for $175).

Yep, the reqs are pretty ridiculous, but the game is supposed to be some kind of technological marvel with its effects.

I misread the reqs the first time and I assumed they had listed all the Radeon X series cards, but it's just the X1K series.. The really bitchy part? My X850 Pro is technically more powerful than all but the X1900 and X1950. It just lacks the interface to run 3.0 shaders.

Having the DVD sitting in front of me really tantalizes me.

Oh by the way, what's the biggest game you've ever had installed?
SCDA is a 10.65GB install! Biggest game yet ;D

I just played and beat Armed and Dangerous. Pretty fun game with a good sense of humor. The levels all seemed kind of disjointed and didnt really flow from one to the next. I mostly played to watch the next cutscene (where were hilarious). Overall not a bad game if you get it cheap like I did ($5).

Heh, I remember Armed and Dangerous.  I didn't really play it, though, but I still have a copy lying around somewhere.  I wanted to try it because I thought GIANTS was funny as hell, but I never got around to it.  Bought it for like 10 bucks.

Some of my high installs....

I think FEAR takes it.
FEAR takes up a little over 5 GB.

Oblivion is a little below 5 GB.
Silent Hill 3 and 4 were both around 5 GB.
Dreamfall was around that, too.

Yeah I think the biggest installs I've had were:

SCDA: 10.65GB
MGS 2: ~7GB
F.E.A.R. + Extraction Point: 6.98GB
NWN2: 6.39GB
Oblivion: ~5.5GB

Man, games are getting huge. I remember back in the day when the average game was somewhere between 20MB and 300MB.. The biggest game I saw back then was Blade Runner! 1.6GB installation! My HD was 1.6GB at the time :P

haha I remember when I was a kid and bought a F-16 flight sim, that I was ridiculously excited about. It was 12 floppy discs! And I couldn't run it because I had 4 Megs of RAM and the requirement was 8. :(

I heard Duke Nukem Forever is gonna take up 50 GB of space, since it'll be done in probably 2015. :P

I forgot to mention I picked up New Super Mario Bros. for the DS. Classic 2D side scrolling Mario. It seems rather on the short side, as I'm already at World 8. Though there are 2 worlds I haven't found the secret entrances to, and I didn't unlock a lot of the side levels so I might not be judging it properly.

Only thing I don't like so far is the lack of save anywhere. This gets unlocked after you beat the game...but by then I don't really need it. You can only save after the little middle castles and the big castles. So if you get frustrated in between and shut off your system, you lose your progress. What I've found is there are side paths you unlock with the big coins you find, and after you spend the coins you get the option to save. So I have a bunch of those I can use to save my game.
