Chat and discussion not related to either Marathon or Aleph One. Please keep things at least mildly interesting, though.

Playing some Cave Story right now. Awesome freeware game, for those who are interested.
The cake was a lie, until I ate it...
Just cause I like Windows and Microsoft doesn't make me any less of a Marathon fan!

The word blasphemy comes to mind when i think of this game. But the first 3 Myst games were great. I wasn't too big a fan of the fourth and fifth though.
Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?

Mega, you have no clue. The sheer graphic realism was unparalleled. Did you actually play it?

I played the first five Myst games then Uru, but I never got around to playing Uru Live. I was about to check it out when the server was taken down. There's a new server apparently.

I should add you to my friendslist. I think my name is "Zott" or Zott820. Add both, why not.

I didn't like where it took the story and I consider that to be incredibly important in the adventure genre. I didn't play Uru for the same reason.

For new games I've just finished Stalker: Call of Pripyat yesterday... amazing game. I am also trying to finish Dragon Age Origins.

For older games, I play Jagged Alliance 2 v1.13 on a regular basis, too bad it does not work on with my Seven installation.

Actually, I have a lot of games I want to play but does not have enough time :(

Bioshock 2 (it has the perfect balance of Ayn Rand and bashing people in the face with a f*cking drill) and Brutal Legend.

Some would argue that reading Ayn Rand and being bashed in the face with a f*ing drill are roughly the same.

I also just finished playing N.O.V.A. on the iPhone. It's a blatant Halo clone, with decent gameplay but awful writing. It was amusing enough, but the controls on the iPhone are just terrible for shooters.

I thought that was the plot of Atlas Shrugged.

Nova sucked. It was way too easy, even on the hardest level, one shotgun blast, rocket, or sniper shot killed everything exept for that last... thing.

Finally finished the first dungeon in Guadia Quest. I had been stuck in that maze for about a year. Now I've unlocked the final game, Haggleman 3, with two challenges to go until I've completed the game. Just in time for Ace Attorney Investigations which comes out on Tuesday.

Oh, and I'm working my way through this, which feels kind of short.

I love Loom and all other Lucas Arts Adventure games. Full Throttle is the greatest though.

I'm considering doom3, it looks like a fun game. I'm very surprised its heavily story driven, with puzzles to0 solve, and objectives to clear (sounds like an older FPS game that came in 10 year before?)

Reading about the game, and watching a few lets plays, it looks like the perfect candidate for a rendition of pathways into darkness. It seems to carry much of the same features that the PiD game carried.
