    Victoria: Empire under the sun. Nearing the end of my first campaign, as UK to build the British Empire...

    Once that's rounded off, i'll switch back to Morrowind and HoI2:Doomsday + MDS2 mod, and rebuild the British Empire...

    P.S. you don't need the Burning Crusades expansion right away, unless you're going to race to level 60+, or you want to play one of the 2 new races (both of which are dorky, IMO). It's a lot of fun if you take your time through the early levels, and in many ways I think that's the best part of the game.

    Currently playing: F.E.A.R.

    O, what horror, what horror! Playing this game surely's a good way to stop your heart from beating once in a while. As soon as I hear that paranormal-like sound effect and seeing the flickering of that HUD, my brain freezes!

    It's a good game, and despite I've heard people complaining about the repetitive surroundings, it actually's very effective, for seeing certain similar-looking areas might make you think twice before advancing.

    The expectation one hath, 'tis too much. The tribal music when you are to engage in battle with foes sounds great, but howsabout the suspenseful music (or sound effects) that make you expect the most horrific occurrences in some climax? Not good for the heart, arrrgh! Especially when nothing happens at all.

    The weapons are great.

    The visuals are great (even on lower-medium settings). I'm playing it on my low-end PC with DX8 and have most settings to lo-med, with LCD resolution of 1280x1024, and it runs great. Only the autosave slows down the thing, but that's usually over very quickly.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    I'm now stuck at some part. The room looks like some kind of attic, very dark, lots of wood around inside. There's a door but it's blocked off on the inside. It's some time after which Fettel tells you "she's around, her presence is strong here," which freaked me out, 'cause I'd expect to see "her" again.
    Emotion, passions, and desires are, thus peace is not.

    I've always got a game of Imperialism II on the back burner and I just wrapped up two of my best campaigns ever. The first one I completed in 1764, the second in 1754. And that was on a difficulty level of 380, playing the weakest available faction and, of course, with my personal iron man rules

    Also playing the occasional scenario of Shadow Magic, on my way to finishing the game. The last one was terrific fun, I captured eight cities in the first 20 turns or so and wrapped the whole thing up really neatly, capturing every city on the map and killing the enemy wizard on the last move of the last turn. You don't often get to do that in the AOW series because the scenarios end as soon as you fulfill the often obscure victory conditions, which is pretty annoying when there is still plenty of challenge left in the level!

    The latest enthusiasm though is for the Europa Universalis Demo, which currently has me anticipating a new game more than I have in a long time.

    Resident Evil 4. Because it's like giving crack to an addict. It's the PS2 version, obviously, because the GameCube version sucks.
    I want to play the European version though. :(

    Well, on the MacBook Pro Windows partition I have a stalled M2:TW game as the Moors - still learning, and there's something about it that doesn't grab me like MTW. Ultima Online gets booted up regularly (now in my ninth year of this MMORPG).

    On the OSX partition I have a game of Baldur's Gate 2 just finishing (about the tenth time I've gone through this) Civ IV which as others have noted, is too addictive and tends to get me into trouble, and I'm trying out WoW a little - pretty landscapes, but I've never been a fan of levelling games. I have an installation of Victoria too, but it is all too overwhelming to get into.

    Lots and lots of Flightsim 2004. With all the add-ons I've installed it's up to 13 gigs.

    IL2-Pacific Fighters series but I don't have the new all-in-one IL2-46 DVD edition yet.

    Still On the slow slog through Splinter Cell:Chaos Theory. maybe I'll finish it this year.

    Not sure I even have enough room on my HD to reinstall M:TW2. I'll have to clean out some junk.

    I had a blast with the original Settlers, which was on the Amiga, but I wasn't nearly so impressed with its sequels on the PC.

    Settlers IV is the latest isn't it? The 3D version? Yes, I'd like to try that game out, but I'm not going to buy it until it becomes a budget game. AU$29 is about my limit for any game these days, with very occasional exceptions. One of those exceptions will be EU3, which is due out here next month.

    And I'm playing Fire Emblem (6 and 7)

    Hi,
    Settler III introduced the first ever 3D engine and Settlers IV drastically improved on it. The latest version, which cannot really be called a settlers game is Settlers V (Heritage of Kings). It is really a fusion of the Settlers IV with AoE with much more AoE in it than Settlers. It completely revamped almost everything focusing more on combat and losing the good old classical carrier system, now it is recourse gets exploited and gets "magically" teleported to some invisible treasury. It also included (shock, horror) cavalry for the first time ever in the series! It is, however, still an exceptional game, capable of beating most other RTS games both with the story and the graphics. It does, however, lack the extreme complex depth that the Settlers 4 and below had. If you desire to buy it then The Settlers IV Gold is pretty cheap at the moment, I got it for £7.50 off Amazon.co.uk so if you want to try it I would strongly recommend it.

    Yeah, I thought Settlers V sounded interesting but I wasn't sure how it had been received. Sounds like it might be worth a look.

    Thanks for the recommendation on Settlers IV, I've got all the other games in the series so I guess I might as well check that one out as well

    NBA Live 2005 - Just messing about with a super-team.
    Call of Duty - Borrowed it off a friend. He needs it back by Wednesday so I should get through the American missions as soon as possible, but I don't think they're as fun as the other two campaigns.

    PC
    I'll be playing RTW again soon when this Gaul PBM starts. Better reinstall it.
