    Geneforge 4 - a very good recovery after the disappointing #3.

    Kiss: Psycho Circus: The Nightmare Child. It's a bizarre FPS using the LithTech engine, developed by a bunch of people who quit Ion Storm during Daikatana's development. It's got some interesting level design and some pretty surreal moments - "psycho circus" is a good description. It would even be quite scary if the writing and the voice acting weren't so atrocious.

    I finished my first, and probably only, run through Witcher. I enjoyed it but I wouldn't be bothered playing through it again.

    I liked the overall plot and characters but the combat and alchemy systems were really boring me by the end. There was far too much repetitive killing of weak enemies for my liking. Most combat can just be resolved by just selecting one of two weapons and one of three fighting styles and clicking the mouse using the appropriate rythm for that style. By the end I was running away from most enemies because I just couldn't stand the boredom of clicking through the silver/fast sequence for the 800th time to kill yet another drowner. I did get some relief from this boredom when I decided to just fireball to death anything that got too close to me but that got old really fast too.

    If you pair that up with the frequent crashing you don't exactly have a recipe for replay.

    Finally started playing The Witcher. A very nice game so far, with great graphics and music.

    "More Mammoth tanks!" is still my motto. :p

    Started Demon Stone again, it's not special, but a better time waster than solitaire. Maybe some NWN afterwards.

    Oh, and MotB was awesome.

    Warhammer 40K . It's fun, I think I may try it out online when I get better. For some weird reason, I like the Tau most.

    ....nothing! I'm in gaming limbo. I was playing Lego Starwars2 which was really fun until I had to start replaying the levels to get the extras. So I stopped playing that about 3 weeks ago. I wish they would make another starwars lego game.

    I wish I could warm up to RA2, I really do. But after the massive amount of WIN the first part had, 2 was just...a disappointment.

    Arx Fatalis. I cannot decide if I love or hate the game. It does some things incredibly well and fails so miserably at others.

    Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2. It's a great game, but the single player story is a bit short.

    I'm stuck with the endboss of the old NES-game Legend Of Zelda 2 - The Adventures Of Link. Not too bad of a game, although a little too short and little too simple, but sure brings back those childhood memories.

    Ahh, nostalgia...
