This is a weekly segment where we share what games we are currently playing for our readers to get to know us a bit better. Said games can range from retro to current and from casual to FPS games.
If we’re playing it, we’ll share it. Please feel free to comment with what you’re playing or your opinions on the games that we’re involved with.
William: Been going through Diablo 3 Nightmare mode. Kinda losing steam. The game isn’t so much the atmospheric dungeon crawler that the series used to be known as, and it’s more an “isometric beat-em-up”. Which is fine if you’re in to that sort of thing, but I don’t think it’s fully my cup of tea.
I’ll probably start back in on Legend of Dragoon now… That Eternal Dragon isn’t going to kill itself.
Greg: Finished and reviewed Max Payne 3. Rather good game. Check out the full review for details, but it is very good. Good narration, very tight and excellent gunplay. Much better than I had dared hope it be prior to released.
Other than that. Lots of Diablo 3. And discussion about Diablo 3 with William.
Jake: Diablo 3 every now and then. Now that I actually am done with my journalistic responsibilities for Tera and Diablo, I’m taking things a bit easy. Enjoyed some HoN Midwars last night and been playing Mario Tennis today.
Jeff: I haven’t been able to buy any new games, so I’ve been working back through my PS2 catalogue. This week I wrapped up Psychonauts and Ultimate Spider-Man, and made a little more progress in Resident Evil 4. I also worked up the courage to finish Half-Life 2: Episode 2, whose finale just doesn’t let up. These are all games I’ve completed before, but Microsoft neglected to make old hard drives and memory units incompatible with the slim units, and I fell victim to an embarrassing glitch that probably hasn’t affected anyone in about eight years.
Ben: Just started Hell difficulty and Diablo 3 still has my full attention.
Jen: Been playing Diablo 3 off and on. Its a pain not being able to save whenever and because of this, I haven’t been playing as much as I would like to. Most of my time this week has been with SWTOR again. I’m trying to help my husband reach level 50 with my own level 50 toon. I’ve also been playing as my Dark Jedi. By week’s end, I started to play the new Doctor Who game on Ps3. Its great fun for any Whovian. The review should be up today with more information.
