View Full Version : What games have you been playing?

9th August 2011, 11:59 AM
Just launching a thread to see what you have been playing recently/lately, besides Warcraft 3 maps ...
For those who don't know what to play, it could be inspiring :)

I suggest you define 5 games that have been taking some of your precious time. Post some screenshots of each game so you can have an impression what's it like.

These are mine (in random order):
Team Fortress 2: A free to play FPS shooter with a cartoony look and feel from Valve.
(coop team multiplayer included)
Screenshot of me "commanding" the troops :)

Shogun Total War 2: A strategic game in which you control vast armies and try to conquer a huge map.
(single player, coop multiplayer included)

Men of War - Assault Squad: An RTS in which you control an army of World War 2 units, trying to conquer a map. (single player, coop multiplayer included)

911 Emergency - LA mod:
Manage police, ambulances, and the fire department to try to cope with disaster city.
(single player, coop multiplayer included, looking for players :))

Mass Effect 1 & 2:
A tactical shooter with a great story, in which you can make several decisions. These decisions have its effect on each sequel of the game.
I've finished these games several times but I wanted to create several chars with different decisions. Mass Effect 3 is released next year so... :)
(singe player)

Let me know what you think, and post what you've been playing!

They're N0TD :)

btw I created a HB Firebird thread and no one answered xd

Youtube tag doesn't seem to work, so I'll just post the links:

- Terraria (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTr5GETLPDE) (fan trailer): discover & reshape 2D worlds. Video's a little too glamorous for what it is, but it's strangely addictive :). Multiplayer is present but can be a bit of a hassle (joining by ip address).

- UT 2004: UT has been one of my favourite shooters for a decade or so, but I've been playing it a lot less than usual... (because of Terraria :rolleyes:)

These are my stats (http://ut2004stats.epicgames.com/playerstats.php?player=1966270) for about the last 600 hours of gameplay. I play Instagib CTF almost exclusively. 1 shot, 1 kill! :happy:

- Eve Online (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OFHzurWj9I) (Incarnia trailer): sci-fi space MMORPG which has all players (about 40000 to 50000 at any time) online in the same world, as opposed to WoW. Been playing this on and off since 2009. It's a huge sandbox in which you'll need to set your own goals. Also, no skill grinding is involved.

Eve is said to have a very steep learning curve, but it's become a lot more friendly toward new players in these last few years. It's a subscription based game but it allows you to buy game time with in-game currency - which I've been doing for half a year now. Free 21-day trials available from me... and I can provide one person with 51 days of gametime without trial restrictions if he/she is really interested :).

- Team Fortress 2 with Grim
- 911: First responders + LA Mod with Grim (looking for players!)

And also:
- Sins of a Solar Empire Entrenchment + Sacrifice of Angels Mod with Grim
- Anno 1404 Venice, with Grim (looking for players)
- Men of War: Assault Squad (guess with whom I played this :))
- last and least, a tiny bit of warcraft III (various custom maps)

Thanks Akhetaton! :happy:

I bet it would've gotten a few replies if it was posted in the N0TD forum though :). Ah well...

Still alive?

Same as penguin. Oo

VanGogh, well, the N0TD community on this server has mostly died out now. But 2005... those were the days :rolleyes:. We had 75 people in the clan (divided in two) and notd games going most of the time.
Little bit of history here (http://grilledfish.be/index.php?n=12&page=3).

Not too long ago we had a reunion (http://www.eurobattle.net/showthread.php?t=146531) where a few of our oldies showed up :).

9th August 2011, 08:33 PM
yes I saw you were combining reunion, nice memories, huh? What you guy are doing now? Still playing NotD all this years?

9th August 2011, 11:18 PM
Yeah, it was great :).

What you guy are doing now? Still playing NotD all this years?
I think there was still some activity until late 2009.

As for now, a few of us have irl stuff going on and don't have much time left for games.
Some have moved on to other games or maps (there are soms WoW and dota addicts out there).
Some still play notd on bnet, other servers, garena, starcraft 2, etc... :).
One has been developing his own game, with a few notd elements in it: The Red Solstice (http://www.theredsolstice.com/).

As for me, I've mostly moved on to other games, though I've been known to join an notd game once in a while, if I find one :rolleyes:. As are others... (looking at you nxuan :happy:)

9th August 2011, 11:59 PM
i am playing NOTD3 and SO most of my time.:tiphat:

and DOTA, when there is no games around XD

10th August 2011, 02:46 AM
Birdy, I don't see who you're talking about... :P

10th August 2011, 02:53 AM
(always happy to see N0TD :) )

10th August 2011, 09:16 AM
Birdy, I don't see who you're talking about... :P

Aww... wishful thinking on my part then :(. You did once say you joined notd games without loading to spy on me :ph34r:.

Kwowa, are you playing that on the zmc-bot? :)

yes, i am in this clan from the start :P :bat:

yes, i am in this clan from the start :P :bat:
Eh, where did you read that I suggested otherwise :huh: :).

11th August 2011, 03:56 PM
Hell, it has been a while since I last visited bloody xpam's forums. Especially after the hacking of my previous hotmail adress... Oh well, here we go!

World of Warcraft: Um, does it really need any description? :D And yes, yes, yes, I happen to be a victim of the diesease - currently running HC Firelands

League of Legends - Stand-alone DotA is the best description possible: 2 teams, 3 lines, destroy the enemy base. My clannies showed me LoL and suprisingly, as I was known to be one of the greatest DotA haters, I liked it. What is more! I could even be called... quite a decent player.

Portal 1&2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TluRVBhmf8w) - You are Chell, a test subject kept captive within Aperature Science's laboratories and forced to run test made of logic puzzles by (as we find out later on) a psychotic supercomputer and the only thing in your possession is a portal making device. The tiny game added to The Orange Box had bought me in no time and became my most beloved game. After the release of Portal 2 I bought it as soon as I could, had single player finished in 2 nights and... I have no one to play co-op with: everybody I know have either passed MP several times (and it's no fun being carried) or have an illegal version.

L4D2 - An online survival FPS. Players are distributed into 2 4-man teams: Survivors or Infected. The goal of the former ones is to survive throughout the campaign, the latter... well - Braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaains would describe it quite well. Basically, it was in Steam's bargain some time ago, so took the opportunity and bought it for... 5 euros?

hey guys

my games:

Heroes of Newerth : another DotA standalone game like League of Legends, but a way better! :p

Total War: Shogun 2
well Grim already told what it is about.

World of Tanks:
It's a kind of arcade shooter with tanks of WWII. Not very realistic but funny to play - sometimes. It's a 15vs15 versus game. You have to research new modules and chassis until you get your final tank.

Company of Heroes(ToV,OF,Online):
WWII strategic game. I played the Beta until the game was dumbed. I hope to see a new Game of that franchise soon.

11th September 2011, 12:24 AM
Well i still play basically 2 games: War3 and StarCraft2

1. Starcraft2 - Night of the Dead: Spec Ops (notdso sc2). This is an adaptation of war3 notdso into sc2 engine. It was made by Imeasytokill (now known as Malkavian on sc2) and myself with Syrus giving some input and critiques. The map is an entirely new terrain, some new classes, many new skills, some new enemies, and many reworks of old skills/mechanics.
The game is best described as faster paced and more action packed than the war3 ancestor. It can be played in the channel "notdso" on sc2 servers in north america and EU.

2. War3 notd2/3/so. Yes we still play this over on clan zmc on northrend. Pretty much a daily occurrence.

3. Left 4 Dead 2: Already described by others. I havent played this much lately but I did for awhile.

4. Runescape: A slow going grindathon of a MMORPG. The content is updated weekly and the members world is very robust and developed, requires monthly fee. The free to play world is like 5% of the game if that much. I used to play this alot many years ago but I am known to occassionally log on and do some quests or check out new features.

Guys listen to me: dayz mod for arma2 is so amazing. unbelievable! Its a military simulation of a zombie apocalypse with a huge survival component. 3D tactical SHOOTER! Although not that action packed as n0td, it a dream. If you are going to play any game it should be this one.

19th August 2012, 05:32 PM
I've played it on a test server, it's interesting. Must be fun with friends but it also seems like a pretty harsh game world (losing everything when you die etc).

As for me, just recently started with LoL since my cousin dragged me into it - yes, hell *is* freezing over, but I'm only level 3 or something.

What else: tiny bits of TF2, 911:First Responders, MoW:AS, AoE3 + improvement mod, Swat4 SSF, D3 and tried Endless Space. Thinking of starting with Eve again... anyone else playing that?

22nd August 2012, 04:36 PM
yesterday i played with a friend during server night time. it's crazy you actually dont see anything and as soon you switch on lamps/road flares you are worried some other player will hunt you down. at some point we run into a zombie because it was pitch black and my mate got down to low health. he could barely see b/o blurred vision. i had to carry a light so he was able to follow me. after we got lost (you dont have a map/compass in the beginning) we made it savely to the hospital and gave him a blood transfusion.
the concept of permanently dieing adds an insane athmosphere, that you are actually afraight and thinking twice if some target is really nessesary.

who is interested can find installation instructions here: http://niconde.blogspot.fi/2012/08/lets-play-dayz.html (are you allowed to post links?)
