I've just bought CS:Source and DOD:Source. I only wanted DOD: Source but thought I might get CS:Source for when the DOD server I play on is empty. Ugh, this could be bad.

Other than that I'm currently playing UFO: Aftershock which is the closest modern game to the X-COM series as far as I'm concerned. If you like X-COM, get Aftershock.

I'm currently playing (my sidebar notwithstanding) N, which is a Flash platform game that is wickedly addictive (the level designer is both Satan and Jebus Himself), and Battalion, an online conversion of Advance Wars, I'm given to understand. It's a lot of fun, and free to boot.

I tell you, when I get my new PC I'm locking myself in a room with the best games of the past six months and not leaving. I shall have my meals delivered through a hole in the wall, and I shall train rats to entertain me when my eyes feel like they're going to melt. PC game withdrawl symptoms are harsh...

Currently attempting to play:

* Counterstrike Source: my main fps. Say what you want about the lack of teamwork, but people online are idiots in general who couldn't work as a team to save their lives. So it's good fun deathmatch with countless sub-30-ping servers to play on. Unfortunately, it also has a nice bug right now that's showing me tons of servers, but all but 15% of them fail to connect.

Currently playing:

* Starfleet Command: Orion Pirates. The game that never gets old.

* Diablo 2: for when you just have to randomly kill absurd hordes of monsters. My lvl 87 amazon and lvl 85 melee-sorceress laugh at even the lords of hell themselves.

Currently wanting to play, but waiting to buy at a lower price:

* Call of Duty 2. The first was fun. The demo of the second is even more fun. Making the rabid idiot hordes actually use iron sights and careful aim is pricelss. I look forward to many more enjoyable hours of point-blank bolt-action kills on the PPSH bunny-hoppers, and cross-map sniping. I love my un-scoped mosin nagant.

On PC I'm currently playing X3: Reunion... which actually seems to be an improvement on its predecessor. Yes the strain on the system is still ridiculous; even on medium shaders/models, no glow, no AA and no AF, I still get laggy FPS in places with my system. Especially if I try to enter cloudy areas. Which seems a bit nutty. Ore Belt is a lag pit. But the gameplay has improved, with a simplified interface (woot) and the option to play separately just as a trader, or assassin etc with storyline turned off (no Khaak, joy!). You can even make your own custom modes by the looks of it, which is sweet. Currently messing around with trader... could never get a grip for trading beyond energy cells in X2 (which, as has been said, seem to unbalance the economy). It's still pretty much the same in X3, unfortunately... but it's still fun. And combat is actually enjoyable now, with decent weapons fire and explosions... always a plus. :D

I also played around a bit with Genji on the PS2 - seriously worth picking up if you're looking for a simple, but stylish action game. It's easy, it's short, but the gameplay is extremely satisfying. Better even maybe than the Devil May Cry series. Demon Stone, by comparison, and generally, is awful. Don't touch it. Don't make eye contact. Just walk away. Advice I would give for most Forgotten Realms games really. :P

Currently playing: Morrowind (again). I keep coming back to it, it's just *so* obsessive. I never get bored, with all these mods coming out.

Planning to play some more: EVE Online, as soon as I get my bank account up and running.

Currently Playing: Morrowind (Yet again!) This is my first time however playing Morrowind on a PC... before this it was always Xbox... now I can use the console incase something messes up :) I'm excited...

Doom 3, I also beat this on Xbox, but now that I have a computer that can run it on Ultra settings, I thought it would be best if I were to beat it yet again... I've realized that they took certian events out on the Xbox version...

Far Cry, I quit playing this for awhile due to how bloody hard it got later in the game... hopefully sometime in the next week or so I get around to finishing it... I don't believe to much of the game is left.

Diablo 2, I've been attempting to play this yet again... I lost my illegal character account so that was a little disappointing... ~~Faust~, and ~~Freeze~ :(... I even got offered $200 US for my ~~Faust~ account when I had my level 91 Hammerdin :(... RIP D2 account haha...

Which server do you play on? I'm on USEAST non-ladder, might be able to give you some basic items, and can definitely give you all the rushes/quest help you could ever need.
