lately i've been playing natural selection 2 on steam, awesome and unique game, got it for 1 cent via humble bundle!

it is an aliens-vs-human FPS with 1 player for each team acting as a commander, the commander plays the game as if its an RTS, they can exit the command center and play in first-person as well if they want (in this way the commander is a volunteer job for the team)

basically you secure various areas of the map and develop resource nodes to acquire more resources, you spend them on equipment or loadouts, commanders spend the resources on upgrading their teams weapons/armor or researching improvements or setting build requests for things that ping aliens, sentry guns, armories...

very interesting, kind of a mix of starcraft with halo perhaps? if i had to describe it

there is a mod i've been playing which ousts the commander role and leaves all personal upgrading/researching to the individual, you also don't worry about resource nodes, you gain exp/promotions which rewards resource points instead.  i would love to see more round-based games utilising this type of progression, it is very similar of warcraft 3 custom games

i've also been loyally serving the new conglomeracy in planetside 2, i changed the name of my outfit/clan to the grossest 3 words i could find, courtesy of some googling: Moist Festering Smegma - that is what other players are forced to read when i kill them, fabulous right??

Natural Selection sounds very similar to Nuclear Dawn from the way you're describing it.

Personally I've been playing some more EU4, though my interest has waned a bit from the initial excitement.

Just more or less wrapped up a Brandenburg -> Prussia -> Holy Roman Empire campaign, which was pretty fun. Prussia is the best at fighting.

I've also been playing some Planetside 2, though I'm pretty rubbish at it. Vanu Sovereignty for life.

Also recently got Borderlands 2, and played that a bit with my brother and a smidge with Pat.

Fun stuff.

Natural Selection is a masterpiece of a game.

I've only played the second one for a few hours but my friends and I played the first for years. So much fun to be had and absolutely unique gameplay and style.

There is no play. Only work.

Also, Smite and Hearthstone.

There's something poetic about an MMO that actually puts a monkey on your back.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I hope you don't think that TESO is going to be anything besides an abortion.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

He said he's hyped.

Poor soul
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Hawken is good, and OpenTTD is a fun game to play if you can talk to friends who are playing it with you.

I'm playing...
I'm playing...
What am I playing? Nothing, really. Books.

I guess sometimes I play Audiosurf for a bit.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Hearthstone

Beat Southpark, but it if you like the show, $60 is a lot though so if you've waited this long sale for sure

Heard I was supposed to buy it if I liked the show, or if I liked Paper Mario.

I like both, so this should be gotyay, right?
