      What are you playing right now?

      So, we have a music thread for this, but no gaming- I thought this might be a good idea (Because my 'good ideas' always turn out really well ). So. What are you playing at the moment?

      Right at this minute, I'm playing.. how can I put this..erm..I'm playing Dwarf Fortress. Yeah. Moving on..
      If you young'uns don't know what dwarf fortress is, well, stay awhile and listen, and I shall educate you..
      Long ago, in the distant past of .. well, 2002.. came a game. A roguelike, in fact. But not just any roguelike! A roguelike with city building elements! Your little band of dwarves would be plonked into a randomly generated world and left to fend for themselves. Your first priority is to build a shelter, and in true dwarven style, this is done by digging holes into a mountain somewhere. As your dwarven empire expands, you'll be building a mighty fortress, and you'll dig down into the earth- too greedily and too deeply, one might say. You'll get better resources, which allows you to build many delicious things, including various mechanisms and traps. Does this sound familiar at all? Yep, it's the original Minecraft. Notch looked upon the majesty of dwarf fortress, and he saw that it was good- and then basically took the idea and twisted it into minecraft. And like minecraft, the game is never finished- it's still being developed and getting updates to this day, 10 years after release, and the single developer, Tarn Adams, has said that he expects it to take at least 20 years before he considers it to be 'finished'.

      Put simply, it's a fantastic game- I expect a lot of people will be put off by the ASCII graphics, but there are 3rd party graphical interfaces around if that takes your fancy. I only really got into the game recently, but i've had an interest in it for a few years now. Check it out, by all means- it's free, after all

      I rambled on a bit more than I'd intended there.. So back to the topic at hand, what are y'all playing?
      Thanks Whim, Sage thanked for this post

      I'm currently doing another play through of Starwars: KoTR. It was probably one of my favorites games i played when i was younger, I spent probably around 200 hours playing it. It was a solid game but suffered a plague of glitches which really hindered the gameplay a lot. Although the story was more than enough to make up for the glitches and probably had one of the best plot twists in gaming history.

      KOTR 1 was a favorite of mine too #2 not so much, and TOR was just.. yeah, let's not go there

      On the subject of older games, I'm currently playing through an oldish point-and-click, The Curse of Monkey Island. Don't ask why

      Right now, I'm currently playing through Super Mario RPG again because I haven't played it for a while. Other than that, I'm just doing the battle challenges on Pokemon White version while waiting for the sequel to come out.

      Spoiler: Who do you use?

      Right now I'm playing the Sims III Supernatural. Trying to get back into the Sims again.

      With a bit of TF2 on the side, as usual.

      relationships. Life goes on
      with, or without you. I swim
      in the sea of the unconcious.
      I search for your heart,

      Right now I'm playing Pokemon White 2. Suprisingly it's better than I expected. Though you gotta love the classics.

      Haven't played a pokemon game since Emerald. What absurd number are they up do now? 600-something?
      also, blastoise ftw

      I never really looked at sims 3- I played #1 a hell of a lot, then a reasonable bit of #2, but didn't really bother with #3 because I wasn't convinced it was actually going to offer anything different or new, and I'd also lost a lot of faith in Maxis since the colossal disappointment that was Spore. Is it actually any good, in your opinion?

      I'm playing Megaman Battle Network 6 at the moment. I kinda want to go back and buy 1 and 2 because I haven't played them yet. I love these games. There is so much creativity in the characters, plot lines, and movement style. Its one flaw is that the gameplay can get repetitive where the other Megaman games had extremely interesting and new terrain for each stage of the game... But yea, battling on 6 now.

      Liberation missions in 5 were a pain...but still enjoyable.

      They got rid of it in 6. Back to the standard Battle Network. I enjoyed that they presented that something different in 5.
