What kind of combat system is it, like the old FF type, the FF10 type or the FF12 type?

I've been playing Diablo II a lot lately. That game owns 99% of the RPGs that have come out since.

Playing a lot of Soulcaliber 3 lately. Enjoyable but at the same time maddening in that it's fairly obvious I do not posess the skill to unlock it all.

I've been mostly playing Guitar hero: Rocks the '80s of late. That and Manic miner (Fuse rocks!), and of course Angband (the greatest game of all time).

Holding out for Assassin's Creed, whizzed through Halo 3 on Heroic 2 days after it came out :P

Manic Miner ftw.

I've also been playing a variant of Angband here and there on my PSP called ToME (Troubles of Middle Earth) which is pretty good but damn hard like all those roguelikes...

Anyway apart from that I've recently bought Halo 3 and The Orange Box. Both games are pretty damn good so far!

Portal > everything released this year so far.

Assassin's Creed and Mass Effect might top it though.

Halo 3 was fun for about 3 days. Finished it on legendary and then got that outfit. Wow?!

I've played the demo of Conan on 360, and good gawd is it dull, the only buttons used are x and y, and its none to pretty to look at graphics wise either. Though in its defence it's dead gory lol


I'm going to preorder Assassin's Creed on Virgin Megastores site, I'm busting my gut to play that game

yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
just realised how to finish the 18th puzzle. That sonofabitch is evil I tells thee.
Atm, I'm once more addicted to Football Manager. Also, I'm either playing Rome: Total War or Medieval 2. I ain't really played much else recently although I might get The Witcher. I did get half way through Bioshock though but then got bored. First things first though, I need a new graphics card and harddrive, then I can go get UT 2008. Damn money for being so scarce :evil:

Portal had one of the best boss fights and endings I've ever had the pleasure to play.

I've also got Assassin's Creed and Mass Effect pre-ordered for the 16th!
