    Playing BladeRunner for the first time ever. It's pretty hard at some times, but it is surely enjoyable. Dunno if I'll be able to find all 7 possible endings, though.

    It's a great game. Playing it always makes me want to watch the movie and watching the movie makes me want to play the game. Can't say if I managed to get that many endings, though. I once managed an ending in which I managed to keep everyone alive (except for that lady cop, I think), but never quite figured out what I did right that time to keep them all alive.

    Still playing BGTutu myself. I decided I wanted to solo again, so started a game with a R/C. Quite enjoying it so far, I love how he levels up so quickly and with good armor he's nearly untouchable. He just got to Baldur's Gate itself and so far I only recruted Tiax once because I needed a thief to open a door for me.

    I'm kind of all over the board lately with switching games. I just started IWD2 last night, and for the moment, am enjoying the heck out of it! :)

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood multiplayer is so good! It is unique - you stalk people while being stalked, and you have to blend into the crowd, etc. Most multiplayers involve running, ducking, and shooting, but this has a much better tension.

    Also racing about on NFS: Hot Pursuit.

    I've been playing a bunch of games I got during the Steam sales and I have a bunch more that I haven't even tried yet.

    I've played Puzzle Bots, Machinarium, Plants Vs. Zombies: GOTY, Cogs, RUSH and Eufloria.

    Also started Vanquish. Very cool shooter, unlike other sci-fi ones.

    Plants v/s Zombies .... funny as all hell
    Also started to get back into IWD II ... its a lot easier to do with my time constraints than say a BG II
    Anyone else play Dawn of War II? Either of them.

    The BG trilogy. Even though I have several parties that I started earlier, I ended up finishing the trilogy first with a solo R/C. For some reason I like soloing a lot, maybe because it's less micro management or just a more focused experience...

    After I finished that game, I continued with my half-orc themed party: a kensai, a barbarian, a F/C and a F/T. All of them half-orcs. I love this fighter heavy party - they can cut through anything.

    Had an amazing time playing Trine with brother earlier. There are hilarious solutions available with two characters on screen - and you can send the Thief air-surfing. :p

    I've never played Trine but it's meant to be epic. I'll have to give it a go one day. Also, Hello Lore!

    Still playing BG, quite as addictive as ever. Also felt like playing an RTS, so reinstalled Red Alert 2 again. I actually wanted to play C&C Generals at first, but when I installed it, it turned out that it doesn't work under Windows 7. Or at least, not without some further tweaking. So I played Some Red Alert 2 instead. Still a great game and still one of my favorite RTS games, next to Supreme Commander.

    Some PS:T. Some IWD2 in HoF. Slow going, both, as my generally limited free time is strained even more than usual.

    Playing PG4ever.

    A revamped version of Panzer General/Allied General with a much better AI. Totally chagnes the game when playing vs. the PC. Currently sacking Moscow in the "Moscow 42" scenario. I have a force that is heavily Heavy Tanks, Mostly PZIIIJs with a few Tigers and a few Panzer 4IVF2s as well. Large Air force for Air Superiority and 4 Bridge Engineer units for quick river crossings, allowing for the Blitzkrieg to take effect from scenario to scenario. Still have England to knock out as well(purposely, wanted to experience more scenarios, so I lingerd in the France scenario to achieve only a Minor Victory.)

    Also soloing IWD again with a F/M/T. Currently entering the Hand. Reached the 2nd level. Levels are 9/11/11, so I am ripping through mostly everything with a buffed -14 AC. Still waiting for a Stoneskin scroll, once acquired, I will be unstoppable, for a while at least.

    Haven't played that much lately, too much else going on, and when I play, I tend to play different games.

    Still playing BGTutu off and on, mostly with two parties I have been guiding through the game for quite some time now. One is a themed mage only party, with a Wild Mage, a Cleric/Wild Mage, a Wild Mage/Thief and a Sorcerer. Can be somewhat challenging at times, but once I realised I really needed a tank of sorts, I equipped my C/M with heavy armor and a large shield.

    The other party is more varied, mostly with a couple of builds that I want to run with because I like them. They're a Monk, a dwarven Berserker/Cleric, a Kensai to be dualed to Thief at some later point and a Skald.

    Further playing some STALKER: Call of Pripyat. For letting myself get immersed in a game world, this game series is one of the best games I know. The original is actually more atmospheric and immersive than CoP, but the gameplay is much more refined in CoP.

    Interestingly, it's the upgrade mechanic for weapons and armor that takes me out of it the most in CoP. I think it stirs up my inner munchkin and I tend to focus too much on getting the upgrades, rather than just enjoy the atmosphere and gameplay. Maybe this is also why I never feel really immersed in RPGs, but much more so in (stealth-)FPS games. Too much powergaming potential for me to pass up on.
