Started playing Tales of Phantasia. Not as good as Tales of Symphonia but I guess that can't be expected. It's really a standard RPG. Bad guy tries to conquer the world, etc. It has some good parts but it doesn't really suck me into the story like some other RPGs did (ToS, FF)

Civilisation: Call to Power.

The AI seems to be making more sense than when I usually play... normally my long-term allies suddenly think I've commited a great atrocity against them when I've done absolutely nothing, and declare war.

It's 2 years older than Civ 3

Civ II is the best. And Alpha Centauri.

I've been spending time with my little sisters recently...
Bananas in pyjamas.
Where in time is Carmen Sandiego?
The Anywhere Machine (The nostalgia!!! I played that game when I was Laura's age, and I found I had the code to the safe ingrained on my memory!!)
And funschool.

Hehe!! Not the kind of games you were expecting to hear!

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines

There's still a few too many parts of the game where things go all combat-crazy (especially the last part of the game, although the ending sequences are still pretty awesome) but apart from that, this game's full of brilliant dialogue and oozes atmosphere. Although as with any RPG or adventure game, the second play-through is never going to be as satisfying as the first.

I hope you played as Malkavian too? It really changes the game.

Just played some Enemy Territory. I had forgotten how lovely that game is, especially the fueldump map.

I'm gonna play that more in the future. Wuhuuw!

Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse - From the screens, this game looks quite good but infact they are misleading. This is one of the most boring and repetitive games ever. The first level is quite fun but then every level is the same and basically the only point is to eat everyones' brains and convert them to zombies. Gets boring so easily after that, also my computer couldn't handle it on maximum resolution, even though it is quite new, this meant i had to settle for 800x600 res, meaning it looked like shit. I really hate this game!!!

Have to agree with you there johnny. I played the game and at first I thought this was really quite fun, extras do get introduced over the first few levels, but when you continue playing, you realise that its like most shitty platform games, boring and reptitive.

Oh yeah, that was lots of fun. I especially enjoyed talking to a stop sign.

I JUST NOW finished Psychonauts. Wow. WOW!! This was a perfect game. PERFECTION. Like, all pluses. I have absolutely nothing negative whatsoever to say about it.

I may have been too good at it though because I got to Psych level 101, and the maximum is 100

Yees! Tons of milk! By the heavens, I will throw tons of milk on you! I am the Milkman, my milk is delicious!
Don't take it personal, though. The unhealthy effects this milk renders upon you, that is.

You could turn this offering down, however, that means you'd have to come into my house and bake some pie. But don't steal my husband.

My probably favorite quote is "I wish my loved one was not dead, but alive."
I don't know why it's so freaking funny
