I got Borderlands 2 GOTY gifted to me from a friend. Other than that, I'm broke for the sale anyway.

I can do alright, but don't ask me to fly street-level or do any bridge stunts anytime soon.

The other day I was watching a Let's Play of GTA 5 on Youtube...one of the players screwed up, somehow flipped his Cargobob upside down and exploded on a bridge.
That sounds about like how I fly planes.  >_>;

They did have some good pilots though, one of them was able to land a large jet on a road and then take off. Probably only worked because no cars spawned.

Exactly! THAT is probably the real reason no one has made a sequel. The first was just so awesome they can't really top it.

Wow...I really want to do a Psychonauts rp now...lol

Psychonauts was an amazing game, and it's one of the reasons I wish I still had my PS2.

Good video games...Dungeon Fighter Online is a great game, and I'm so happy that Neople's bringing it back to America. I just...need to last the few months it'll take them to update our client to something halfway recent...Hnnnnngh...

My brother got me One Finger Death Punch.  It's...  Really kinda cool.  It's a timing based fighter...  I fully recommend it.   It's on sale for 2.50USD right now.  It is however, a single player game.

Just beat Borderlands 2. Great game though things get a little twisted during the second half.

Now that I beat the above game I am now playing Skyrim again, want to beat it a second time around using a Magus Summoner. Never used magic much so this is going to be fun. And for the computer Minecraft and Gnomoria.

If they haven't patched this unlimted level up glitch I suggest you go and get the Oghara Infinium in Skyrim.

They patched it in the last patch. But with legendary skill setting, you can just grind smithing over and over tow earn perk points.

Been playing FTL lately, that game has its highs and lows. The worst is when you make it to the end with a great ship idea and the federation flag ship bitch slaps you.

Picke up Banished on a Flash Sale, lots of fun but the game feels "too real" since you can follow your workers from birth to death. My inner story teller likes keeping tabs on my townspeople.

I just can't play FTL. I don't think it's a great game. It's average to good. It's more a success for crowd-funding rather than the return of roguelikes into the modern gaming lexicon. It's too random, and not in the same way that Roguelikes are random. It's more about finding the Golden Run (or getting lucky enough to have one) than overcoming the random challenges presented on generation of the game. It's more like it forces you to fight that random uberbeast you'd find upon occasion and instead of being able to run from it, you're forced to fight it. If you run it just makes you weaker for the next fight.

The unstable equilibrium of the game is just way too much for me, and, like you said, the Flagship pretty much requires a few select builds per ship layouts to beat. It pretty much runs anathema to the concepts the rest of the game ran on. That's worse than the randomness. It's basically one giant luck-based mission, and the developers are just fine with that. :P

I agree with Indiku on all points, but that said i've still played/love the hell out of FTL. Advanced edition is craaazy hard now.

Otherwise I grabbed the Civ V collection for all the expansions. ermagherd, that game got so vastly improved by Brave New World.
Still need to beat Watch Dogs so I can forget about it... Witcher 2 need to start. Curse you steam sale.

I like it, I just can't play it. It's not healthy for me. :\

I don't get enough privacy to play the Witcher 2.  :-[

My friend just gifted me a copy of Torchlight 2, and already, we've gotten a mod compilation and two other mods. How dare the game tell me that I can't equip two polearms at once?! I'll fix that! >:3

I got the first one when GoG gave it out for free. It's fun, and I like that you get a ferret.

It's my go to game when I just want to hack and slash everything in sight...with intermittent fishing trips.

Vanilla or Modded?

Vanilla on Xbox 360 version (obviously).

PC, I played on Minecraft 1.2.5 and modded.

V1.2.5 is my favorite version so far honestly so I stick with it. Did tried to play 1.6, 1.7, etc but wasn't too happy about a good bit of changes in both mods and the main game. Though I do tend to do a bit of my own modding on 1.2.5 to get things how I want it but have issues at time. I'm not an expert with the coding of Minecraft and only figured out so much.

Well, yesterday was my first time playing, but I must say, I enjoyed it. I'm playing it modded, so I'm using a Barbarian dual-wielding polearms, because polearms are awesome.

I'm more the sword melee, fireball throwing type. I couldn't put the game down when I got it.
