    Mount and Blade! I've taken out 3 of the factions in Calradia, just gotta wait for the Swandians to wage war on the Khegits and it'll be complete.

    Medieval II again. Milan will dominate this time. Sicilly has fallen, the HRE is on the ropes, Venice has taken a major blow...

    Played a bit of Mask of the Betrayer at a friend's and was quickly hooked by the setting and writing. I'm looking forward to buying a new PC and playing through this one.

    NWN2 again, esp. MotB. I keep creating new characters (again).

    The NWN2 OC is just way too clunky to play through. The story only really starts at Neverwinter, and everything before that is so bloody railroad that I really can't be bothered playing through it again with new characters.

    Lore, how good is Dreamfall? I loved The Longest Journey but what I've heard about action scenes in Dreamfall has almost completely sapped any excitement I had about playing it.

    Dreamfall is fantastic. Yeah there are a few places where you have to fight, and you can die so there are some puzzles that are a pain (e.g. one in particular where you have to navigate what is essentially a maze solving a puzzle while avoiding being seen by roaming monsters). But still a really great game with a fantastic story.

    Ziad: I still haven't finished it but I must say that so far I like it. I second what BTA said. There's some fighting (which is rare and easy) and sneaking, (which I loathe in general, not just here), but the game is good.

    It looks quite lovely, especially some of the chars, (and Wonkers ^_^), and so far the story is ok too. Some puzzles are rather straightforward, but I think that it lives up to the original. (It even feels the same at some moments.)

    I'll have a better impression once I've finished it, but so far - I like it. :)

    Baldur`s Gate 2, for the first time in lots of years. Going through it with NPC`s I haven`t used before. Abit like playing a new game, really.

    I'm getting off my Chinese History phase (this one lasted for ~ 6 months), and I'm going back to my Japanese history - which means it's Nobunaga's Ambition for me again!

    Might acquire Witcher at some point, but really, when you can play two games repeatedly for years on end, why do you need new games? :)

    NCAA Football 07... maybe the most fun I've ever had with a console game (including N64 games!)
