I'm actually playing quite a bit of Diablo 2, believe it or not.  I DL'd the demo for Titan Quest and it seems identical so why not go back to the source material?  So I've started D2 over with an Amazon...

Probably get some Advance Wars in and add Phoenix Wright back into the rotation.

Will be taking my son to a Cub Scout campout this weekend, so no gaming for me until Sunday night.  Will probably play Chromehounds, though.

Chromehounds on the 360.  Battlefield 2 on the PC.

And I need to download the latest roster update to MLB'06 The Show for my PS2, and see if they added Clemens to the Astros roster yet.  That is really the only thing I see pulling me away from the other two games this weekend.

With my free weekend I'm definitely going to catch up on some gaming.

On the PC side I'm going to continue with Star Wars Empire at War & Titan Quest and I'm starting my coaching career in NFL Head Coach.

For the X360, I'm definitely continuing my play in Tomb Raider Legend, some Oblivion and perhaps dabble in some Table Tennis.  I'm also going to fire up and start playing Star Fox Assault on the GC.

Of course, I will be interspersing all this game play with episodes of CHARMED Season 1!  biggrin

I just picked up Monster Hunter Freedom, so I'll be toying with that during my weekend downtime. That, and maybe I'll catch a game of FIFA '06, my Aresenal are off to a slow 1-4 start!

I've three reviews on deck plus another pair of discs for 24 season 2 so I think I'll be doing that this weekend. If I happen to squeeze in some Titan Quest along the way then cool. smile

I'm playing the original Grandia.  I'd played it awhile back but didn't get far.  It seems much less boring to me now.  I made it to the steamer which is where I stopped last time.

I also started up a game of Snatcher for the Sega CD.  Hideo Kojima pre-Metal Gear Solid.

I intend to put some more time in with Eternal Darkness for the GameCube.  I've only really gotten to play it for one good session this week, and it gave me such vivid and specific dreams that night that I'm not quite sure I can distinguish between the parts I made up and the parts that actually happened.  I'm not kidding.

I also expect to continue through 2000's The Longest Journey which, like Eternal Darkness, I'm playing for the very first time.  Everyone seems to remark on how easy the puzzles in this game are, but I just started Chapter 5 and I've had to check a hint guide three times so far when I got stuck.  For those who are familiar with the game....

Spoiler for Hiden:
1) In the first chapter, I repaired the water pumping machine next to Border House, but never knew there was a valve that I had to release before I could turn the big wheel and release the clamp.  That valve is about 10 pixels by 15 pixels and I don't think I ever would have found it on my own....

2) Much later, I had to get the cop's prosthetic eye to gain access to the police archives.  I had Constable Guybrush in my inventory, but it had never occured to me to try pulling out his eye so I could swap it with the cop's.  "Do the MONkey!!!"

3) In order to get the anti-grav unit from the shuttle crash, I had to get the thirsty cop to abandon his guard duty by...putting a soda in a paint shaker?  April couldn't just shake it up in her hand and have it spray all over the cop's exoskeleton?  And why would that work at all?  If *liquid* causes those robosuits to malfunction, what do the Newport police do when it rains!?  Bah!


Aside from those hiccups, it's been a great game so far!  Cool

Man, I can't imagine the size of your package if it fits inside a portable game cartridge.  Might want to check the caloric intake as well as I doubt it is healthy to eat.

I have never liked Valkyrie Profile myself, tried it on the PS1 and thought it was garbage.

Valkyrie Profile and Sword of Mana (which I'm finding surprisingly enjoyable considering the horrid reviews).  Plus, I'll be reading Tim Powers' great Last Call.

I've found the first half of TLJ signicantly harder than the last.  Most of the harder puzzles are early in the game.  There was only one puzzle that I found relatively difficult in the last half.

Bah.  My dinner date got canceled (seems to be a theme this week, I've lost 4 engagements to people either leaving too late to get somewhere or to finding things more important), so much more Chromehounds than I thought.

I've been putting tons of time into College Hoops 2K6 on the Xbox, the finest sports game ever made. So what if they lost ESPN. Not a big fan of ESPN anyway, so I like the presentation better this year. The depth of the game and fun of the gameplay is incredible.

Also be playing Brain Age and M&L: Partners in Time on the DS.

Tonight on the menu a slight mix of Jedi Knights: Jedi Academy with a dash of Call of Duty 2 (Bayou Beatdown|Rifles Only Server)

As for tomorrow after my lunch date, probably dig some more into Valkryie Profile, followed with another round of Call of Duty 2

Sunday I'm thinking some Disgaea with a little bit of Tactics Ogre: Knight of lodis and yet another round of Call of Duty 2.

Try AGAIN to play some multi in Chromehounds.  Have yet to actually play in one.

Try and finish my last 5 minutes of Aliens vs Predators 2

See if I can find a cheap copy of Diablo 2 since I never played it.

What?  Get thee to Tristam, forthwith!  DII is a blast, provided you enjoy hack-n-slash.

I might try to get through some more Oblivion, but running through the repetitive dungeons, fighting the same monsters, and doing the same FedEx/exteminator quests over and over is starting to bore me a bit.  Hopefully the main story line picks up a bit and makes things interesting (I'm about 30 hours in and have finished the Fighters Guild and done a couple of the gates)

I also might give HOMM V another try and see if I can convince myself I like it.

Well, duh... FFXI, cz I'm officially an addict...:roll:

However, due to peer pressure at GT, I'm trying to get a schedule that allows not ony GT, but Obivion as well.  Played a bit of Oblivion today but I'm co-leader of a linkshell (clan) on FFXI, so we'll see  how that works!

And I've never heard of any games other than FFXI  and Oblivion.... so  I guess that's it!  :twisted:
