It’s a new month and so it’s time to check in with dopers and ask what games they’re currently playing.
As before this is not restricted to any single type of game. Video games, computer, board games, wargames, CCG’s, pen and paper RPG’s, fantasy sports leagues, miniatures, or whatever your choice of gaming is more than welcome here.
Last month I mainly dabbled in a pile of games according to mood. I played World of Goo for the Wii and while the game itself was fine I thought it had far too little content for a $15 dollar game. I was finished in four hours of play. It was fun but not spectacularly so to justify that kind of price to play ratio.
I recently picked up Chulips which has one of the oddest themes I’ve encountered: you have to kiss everyone in town. Getting past that odd premise it’s a relatively standard adventure game; not bad but it’s not impressing me. I’m not too far into it, however.
Someone I know finished Fable 2 and is now pushing it on me as he plays through Fallout 3. I have little interest in Fable 2 due mainly to the fact that Fable was a short, poorly designed mishmash but I may be playing it soon.
However my “game” of choice for this month is mainly going to be NaNoWriMo as I push to write a 50k word novel in the next thirty days to win. If I win then I plan on getting Rock Band 2 for the Wii as my reward.
So, what are you playin’?
