    Just finished Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer. Why do people rave about this? It's dire, sure there's some technical improvements over the OC, but the npcs and companions are so lifeless and uninteresting. The story, I actually found it distasteful to play, I can't explain that, but it felt like putting your hand in oily water and not being able to wipe it clean. The spirit meter, seems very familiar, I don't know, it kind of reminds me of Bloodlines' blood bar and humanity points?

    Overall where the OC was a slight improvement over KotOR 2, MotB seems 2 steps back.

    Replaying Doom 2.

    Shitty story. Graphics engine outdated by several eons, in computer years. Almost zero environment interaction. No fancy shit, no bloom, no beautiful, heroic soundtracks..

    So why do i prefer playing it over stuff like Jericho, Gears of War or Halo 2? Bleh.

    Style, baby. Style. New kids in the 'hood ain't got none for shit, you feel me, holmes? The world needs more Doom 2, urgently.

    I made a second attempt at getting Shadows of Undrentide started and the first thing that happened was that I ran into a pixie thing that gave me ambiguous and/or illogical riddles that I got wrong because I randomly didn't choose the correct interpretations so I quit in disgust. Does that count as currently playing a game?

    Been playing mostly Quake 2 lately.

    There's still a somewhat lively online community in parts of Europe and North America.

    My rail-only team "Immortal Reapers" is in second place in the North American insta League so far, with semifinals coming this weekend.

    I also played in a 500 frag endurance match this weekend called the Tastyspleen500 which includes upwards of 35 people and an hour and change worth of constant hectic fragging.

    1st place went to Dahang, a really skilled north american player who placed in the tourney at Quakecon last year.

    here was the top 10 scoreboard upon finishing:

    I actually played that game for 2 months or so because one of my best friends got me a free month and told me to come play the game.
    It got really fucking boring and I quit.
    See? It's not unbeatable.

    Also, replaying Gothic 2: Night of the Raven. Still a pretty cool game.

    Yeah man, i got me a freebie too, so i'm thinking, what the hell, why not give it a spin. Heard so much about it, might at least see what the big deal is.

    The way some people are sinking in it, you'd figure playing it is like shooting dope straight in your brain. Guess i'll see in about and hour, when all the patches'll install. ;-E

    Rainbow Six: Vegas 2.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like a good chunk of the recent Tom Clancy games have you killing Mexicans?
