Lately, days feel like weeks and weeks feel like months. I need a game to distract me from the ever nearing release. I've dabbled in Aion and Torchlight, neither really caught my interest. I'm debating going back to Baldur's Gate II, or something similar.
What I want to know is, what are you playing while you wait for May 15th to roll around? Or, do you have any suggestions for me.
Since there is a big thread about this subject in the "other games" section, i merged your thread into it.
Since Diablo 3 was announced my friends and I realised that any game we play was going to be filler until we got our hands on it. WoW was a good time sink for a while but with Cataclysm a lot of my friends began to quit. I stuck it out for a while but during Firelands I was running out of steam. I quit just before Dragon Soul and am actually glad I did because now the content has stayed stagnant and isn't going to change for a while. I've tried not gaming, but thats not fun lol.
I spent some time playing guitar hero on my PS2 and beta testing Firefall, but SW:TOR takes up all my time now. It's a blast and will be consuming my time until I can finally play D3. When it drops my demon hunter will own face.
I'm playing SACRED 2: FALLEN ANGEL. Besides the bugs, and the immensely complicated UI, it's a pretty entertaining game. The graphics are okay, but there is little emphasis on atmosphere (in comparison to D3). The Quests are not repetitive and each one is pretty fresh.
Also, just when u think "these items are boring", you find rare stuff. Everything cool is rare. The game has COMBO packs which work pretty well, also a neat rune system for your spells and skills, of which i hope blizzard learns but doesn't force you in one direction.
The voice acting and 'over-joking' can make you not take the game to seriously and no monster i've fought has made me flee... But besides that, the game is entertaining... If you're welcome to the fact of stopping play immediately to install Dragon Age: Origins.
