I've been playing Dishonored a bit and it's really really cool, you can definitely tell the guys who made Skyrim and Fallout are behind it. It combines so many interesting elements into one game, I love it! Being able to possess rats is neat grin.gif

Right now, I'm taking a little break from playing NCAA Football '12 (using Penn State. Just ended season 6 which I went 14-0 winning the conference championship vs. Michigan and won my 4th National Championship vs. Texas A&M). Playing Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition. A little stuck right now on Oblivion but am trying to get through it.

If you play a game, accompany it with a good book.

 

Ex : playing the holy roman empire in crusader kings 2, read germany and the holy roman empire in 2 volumes.

 

For Skyrim you can want to read the saga of the icelanders, the poetic edda, the prose edda... and watch the movie vikings with kirk douglas

 

For fallout ( including the awesome fallout tactics ) there is whole bunch of post ap SF, and you can watch tarkowski Stalker.

 

I found it always add some more flavor to games, and vice versa.

That's a good idea!

I'm addicted to Dishonored now, but I really really suck at sneaking bigcry.gif

I was really really looking forward to the new sim city.

 

Then I learned it was multi-player ): Now I don't know I feel about it.

@Thorham Had lot of fun with a flash game where you are george bush and the white house is attacked by terrorists ( i mean the ones with beards, not the ones with drones, bwahahaha ) and you gotta shoot them, there are levels and you can destroy the decoration... in some levels you can play as Rice, dual handling uzis... perhaps you could like this one. But for the free shooters i tend to stay with urban terror. The last tribes is free but too fast paced for my taste. And i suck at this one.

 

Spending a lot of time on Aurora pentarch those days, best space 4x ever ( if you like excel and dwarf fortress and don't care about 3D, i think i already presented it before )

That is a good idea. Except the main game I play right now (League of Legends) doesn't have any historical analogs that I'm aware of. 

 

Sometimes I listen to audio books and history lectures while playing games that don't require too much focus or thinking (e.g. Diablo 3, any MMORPG with a "grinding" component).

I took a 1.5 month break from guild wars 2 to play borderlands 2 (loved it!), but now that I finished that I'm back to GW2 (Nice thing about no sub fees, can jump in and out easily!) Getting close to hitting max level and having a blast so far :)

Came back to ARMA2 OA multiplayer this weekend, was cool. With mods and multiplayer in a large group it's very nice. As long as it is played normally, not call of duty style.

Just love the chinooks and the coop, and on max graphics and distance view the game actually looks good.

Always doing airborne stuff, don't care much about the land vehicles, except the motorbikes :-)
