Mods: short for modifications. It usually refers to user-made content for a game, which can go from anything to improving performance, making the game look better, add missions and characters, etc...

I am playing Rayman 1 on PS2. Goddamn'! It's so horribly hard game!

But then again, who does.

Replaying the Assassin's Creed series, currently on Brotherhood. When I started playing Revelations, I just felt like it was necessary to replay the whole series again. So I did.

Playing the original Magic The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012. Ghoulkeeper deck.  Anyone knows the game? I also play Magic: The Gathering - Shandalar (from 1997)


Lately I've also bought The Witcher and The Witcher 2, and Heroes of Might and Magic 1-4 Complete (I still have Heroes III in original)

Here are some screens from:

Magic 2012:

Lately I've also bought The Witcher and The Witcher 2

These are excellent choices. The Witcher was certainly rough around the edges, a bit too old-schooled for a lot of critics, and felt a bit inconsistent on some details (may have been something related to translation), it really was a really great role-playing experience.
The Witcher 2 however, blew it out of the water. It is a gorgeous, action-filled game that just doesn't cease to impress me. Speaking of, I'm currently doing a third playthrough of The Witcher 2... Addiction much?

Also Agnes, did you pick them up on Steam or on retail? If the former, let's add up on Steam :)

Recently, I played the PC gaming classic Deus Ex; needless to say, even if it's 12 years old, it's awesome. I've also been going on and off Borderlands. And once extended cut DLC comes out for Mass Effect 3, I'm doing a full second playthrough of the entire series. I also recently decided to give L.A. Noire a chance, but I'm still too hooked on my third playthough of probably the greatest video game ever designed in Poland.

The Witcher I've bought on gog.com (Witcher 2 as a bonus copy, because my bf has bought a box with the game in the store). I haven't played Witcher 2 yet. It looks a little bit complicated like Skyrim :P

I am on Steam, btw. For Magic The Gathering and Worms Reloaded :) Give me your nickname there and I will find ya! :)

My Steam ID: qliphoth93; Good old OFFman is also on Steam, if memory serves me right...

As for the Witcher 2... It's really not that complicated. Yes, it has all the elements you expect in an RPG, but it also has a robust intuitive real-time combat system. It's an action RPG where the action doesn't overpower the RPG (unlike Mass Effect 2, although that one was also a great game).

No one here fancy about Diablo III?

I never played it (as well as I never play any computer games) but everyone is so horribly high about it. Think it was released today.
But then again, who does.

Released today. And I've read info from betatesters that the game is not THAT great. At least not that great to cost almost 200 PLN (50€)for JUST A GAME. Collector's edition costs 300-400 PLN..

When Diablo 2 was released, for 160 PLN (40€) we have got a version with addictional stuff like movies, audio CD, a mouse pad). In Diablo 3 box you have only the game..

I will wait when it becomes cheaper (less that 100 PLN) and then I will think *to buy or not to buy*. I have to tell you that I have both Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 with the expansion.

Well, I checked the prices before - was thinking of a gift for someone and yes, it expensive.
But then again, who does.

The prices of games have somewhat increased in the past few years. Getting games brand new for consoles in North America is spending around $60. For PC, depending on the game, it ranges between $50 and $60. And I'm personally not a fan of Blizzard, so I don't even think I'll pick up Diablo III.
However, I think that a pointer as to why the price is so high for nothing but the game is looking at the publishers. Blizzard merged with Activision (which in recent years together with EA, have become synonymous with "Satan's minions") a couple of years ago. Guess what else Activision publishes? Call of Duty, which has over the past 6 been the exact same game repackaged, with an ever-increasing price tag. So it's no surprise to me.
One publisher that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside though is Poland's CDProjekt, and their development studio CDProjektRED. Know what the regular edition of their games include? All sorts of bonus content like soundtracks and maps! What a so-called special edition of games published by EA and Activision include.

In short: Activision-Blizzard merger and EA = giant pile of (really greedy) crap.
