    Been sick with the flu. Our go-to while ill is Peggle. Yes, we really do keep our old Xbox specifically so we can play the original Peggle.

    PC. Though I'm going to have to start over here shortly. My husband is in the process of building me a gaming rig (for my birthday). So I have to get another copy of the game and my own steam account since I'd been briefly using his. Anyway, yeah. It's a pretty awesome game.

    Same here. Started a NG+ for the first time. Taking a slightly different route with the choices this time around as well.

    I am now playing Baldur's Gate 2. I think I've not really played this one in a very long time. And even the last time I played it, it didn't play it very far. I don't think I really spend much time with this game in well over 15 years, and I am actually running in some minor things I didn't know are in the game and have to work out the solution to some puzzles again. And that's still in the early parts of the game that I played several times back in the day. The later parts I am much less familiar with. Really looking forward to see how those will play like.

    While the first game had a very generic standard medieval style overall, the second game has a slightly more exotic style with influences from the Planescape setting. It feels a bit like a mild version of the fantastic and alien style of Dune and Morrowind that I love so much, and playing constantly makes me want to stop and work on cool new ideas for my writing.

    Sweet. I'm easy enough to find (Steerpike7). My main character is also a werewolf, which has been fun!

    When I'm not obsessively working it's World of Warcraft, as usual. Also playing a lot of Fable on Xbox One (backwards compatible, I have all three consoles). Also Star Wars the Old Republic and a little Mass Effect.

    Getting an idea why I'm a slow writer. lol

    I love Tabletop RPGs. Right now we are playing MASKS, a teenage superhero RPG using the pbta system. It's a blast. The drama rivals CW superhero shows, and it's effortless to get it to be so much fun.

    I've been in a retrogaming mood, so I've been replaying Amulets & Armor. I dunno, I've never quite found a game that scratches the same itch except perhaps some Minecraft mods. It's quite a shame because "FPS/RPG with episodic adventures" seems like it would be a more common formula.

    Or maybe it is and I just haven't heard because I mostly play old games anyway... :pompous:

    I couldn't find you under that name. What is your @?

    I also have a Wood Elf Nightblade! She uses archery + wands. Then there's my prized Altmer Dragon knight and the Breton Dark Brotherhood assassin. I roleplay the latter two because it's been hard finding other players who do Bosmer. Poor hated Bosmer, lol. My @ is DanHirschberg if you want to look for me. :)

    My @ should be Steerpike7. I’ll double check it tonight, or else try to add you. I’m about to be out of town for four days but after that I’ll be back online as normal.
