What I’m playing

I like hearing what other games people are playing. Every week I look forward to Evil Avatar’s “Weekend Gamer” to read what the current gaming zeitgeist is (right now it appears to be Shadow of the Colossus). It puts a human touch on our collective gaming hobby. It’s good to see that other people are enjoying similar games and someone always mentions an older classic that brings back good memories.

I’ve done a “What I’m playing” a few times here on the blog. I’d like to do it more often. I’d also love to hear from readers what they’re playing.

Anway, on to what I’m actually playing. I’ve jumped back into Guild Wars. I’m getting used to the interface and reacquainted with my skills. My Necro/Mesmer just hit level 20 and I’m getting close to ascending. It’s good to be back into the swing of things and the lack of paying a monthly fee has freed me from the shackles of feeling guilty if I’m not playing every day.

I’m also playing Resident Evil 4, trying to get 5 stars on each level in the Mercenaries mini-game. I can’t get enough of that game. It’s challenging but hardly ever frustrating. My current favorite character is Hunk (pictured, sort of) and his neckbreaker is devastating. I’d like to go back and beat the main game on the hard difficulty. There are two months of releases left this year and it doesn’t look like any titles will be unseating RE4 as Game of the Year. Why hasn’t Capcom capitalized on the success of RE4 and released all the Gamecube Resident Evil titles (remakes and ports) in one big compilation? I’d be all over that for Christmas.

Finally, I’ve been playing a lot of Advanced Wars on the DS. This is a great game. How great? This great. That’s all I have to link about that.

So that’s what keeps me busy. What about you?


  1. Are you my doppleganger?

    I just started a N/Me in Guild Wars, just finished RE4, and have been playing Advance Wars and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance on the GBASP. I’m also dropping in some Dawn of War expansion play. Far Cry: Instincts is rockin’ after everyone goes to bed. Sometimes I’ll stop for a book, family, and potty breaks.

    After seeing the FFIII for DS on Evil Avatar, I’m thinking about a PSP for DS trade-in. I want some games that I can just pick up and play. The DS has that. The PSP just needs games.

    Looks like I’ll have to justify to the wife with Nintendogs.

  2. Due to TRU’s “buy 2 get 1 free sale,” I am now spending most of my time playing X-Men Legends II. The first was great, and the second improves on every aspect of the game.

    Other than that, I’m playing Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow before I head to bed every night, and Mario & Luigi on the bus to work.

  3. Johnny TooBad says

    i play all my games on pc. i was devoting huge amounts of time to guild wars but when i got my monk to level 20 and ascended and did the final missions, i suddenly got bored with it and turned it over to my kid. i had taken a 3 mo break from my previous addiction, america’s army, but the new build was just released and i’m back into it. it’s a very difficult and nervewracking game, basically a combat sim, but the gameplay and game mechanics are amazing. i left UT for AA and never went back. i also created myself as a 6’5″ shooting gard and am backing up rip hamilton in nba live 2006, another really great game.
