    Last game was Battlestations Pacific. It's a nice change of pace from the usual mix of games. You can manage your units at a more strategic level from a map, but can also jump to and take control of any specific unit. You get play air units like fighters, bombers, and torpedo planes or naval units like subs, carriers, destroyers, crusiers, and battleships. Nothing like seeing some good old-fashioned ship-on-ship battles. Plus it was only $5 :)

    For those (like me) who are wondering what game the screenshot is from: it's COD:MW2.

    My last game purchase was NFS:Shift and i didn't regret it. The excellent Cockpit perspective was a huge boost to the racing experience.
     
  4. Recently I have purchased Borderlands for 360 and I still have many more games on the way. I am getting a Prestige Edition Modern Warfare 2 for 360, hardened for 360 for my brother and also another copy for my PC. (Which I hope is 360 controller compatible) After this I will be getting Left 4 Dead 2 and Assassins Creed 2 for 360. I love video games and I like having a wife that doesn't mind. I don't see myself slowing down in the near future and I am probably going to have a great year with plenty keeping me busy.

    hmmm... i think the last game i purchase when i was still in philippines was that ever famous dota allstar... i bought it for my younger brother's birthday and at the same day, he installed it on his pc and play the whole night!

    i'm not an avid fan of pc games but this game seems very interesting. i gave a try couple of times and i always crave for more!... especially when there's a new hero in the net... i would even search for it's skills...

    but here in china... mostly are using garena site to play dota. and i was shocked to know that they have their own "chinese version" of this game...all in chinese characters!

    Yeah I got Need for Speed: Shift too. It really is a terrible game on the computer unless you have a joystick or steering wheel setup. The one time my G15 failed me. I have an R32 =).

    The last game I bought was Fallout 3, and it was fun, but it felt like somewhat of a ripoff for $60 (Had to buy it for 360 because my computer is old and decrepit) The last game I played was Elder Scrolls DaggerFall. Free on Bethesda's website. A little tweaking of the controls and you're good to go.

    The last game I bought was Borderlands (xbox 360). Its a great game, possibly one of my favorites of all time.

    Last game I bought was Dawn of War 2. Been playing it on and off and it's been a lot of fun. They released released a new game type, and I think the expansion is coming out soon.
    Definitely worth the price, since I bought it on one of the Steam discount weekends - $20.

    My last game purchase was the Wrath of The Lich King expansion for WoW a couple weeks ago. I'm extremely addicted. As far as console games are concerned, I purchased GRID for PS3 3 weeks ago. I'm very impressed with the graphics, playability, and the dynamics of the game.
     
     
  12. I've purchased three games worth talking about this year via Steam. The first was Empire:Total War which, when released, was not quite ready for prime time as you couldn't finish a campaign game. There were some other annoying bugs that should have never made it to a release version but most of these have been substantially addressed and it is now a pretty decent game. I still wish they could get it to true multiplayer that would include the strategic elements. At the moment you can only undertake tactical battles with a remote opponent. (3 stars)

    The second game that I spend a lot of time with is Darkest Hour which the Western Front expansion for Red Orchestra. Terrific game. Think you're a hot-shot FPS guy? Come online and try Red Orchestra or Darkest Hour. This multiplayer attracts players from all over the place. You haven't experienced WWII gaming until you've heard your team chattering away in real Russian and/or German through the headset while you're trying to gain an objective. (4.5 stars)

    The third and most novel gaming experience I've had in years came from Fallout 3. If anyone had told me how engaging it would become before I bought it I would have said, "Psshaw!". Actually I've never said that in my life but let's just say I would have appeared to an observer as highly skeptical. Fallout 3 is the best game I've played in ages. A genre buster. (5 beeg stars)

    The last thing I bought was the Indie Gaming Pack from Steam a while back, with Audiosurf/Braid/Darwinia/Gish/World of Goo/Everyday Shooter/Etc. Holy crap, that was SUCH a great deal! IIRC I only paid like $30 for it all, and most of the games (specifically the ones mentioned) were just plain awesome, especially Audiosurf and World of Goo.

    I'm as big a computer gaming enthusiast as there is - it's a huge part of my personal recreation. I'm also currently single (my gaming probably has something to do with that ;) ) and make OK bling-bling so have decent spending money.

    Lately, I've been on a game-buying frenzy with the D2D $5 sale and all the recent Steam discount offerings. My most recent purchases are pre-orders for L4D2, Dragon Age:Origins and last night I picked up Dead Space that's on sale at D2D.

    And HAPPY HALLOWEEN TechSpot!

    Last game I got was AION CE. Fun and quite different from some other games. Don't really like the idea of pay to play, I may give it up soon. It is fun though.

    I had Modern Warfare on preorde, but I've cancelled it since I heard the news that all serves will be run by them. :( Last games I bought were Company of Heroes anthology and Operation Flashpoint 2.

    Last game i purchased was Dawn Of War: Soulstorm. Really cool RTS game based on the Warhammer 40k universe. Soulstorm is actually the 4th game in the series and added 2 new armies to the collection.
    If you've never played it before there are demos available [its how i got hooked].
    Other than that, City of Heroes: Architect Edition.
    Yep, I'm an MMO Player too.

    The last game I purchased was Halo 3:ODST. Even though it is just an expansion, I believe it is a good value because you get every map released for Halo 3, a campaign and a completely separate multiplayer mode. While the campaign was short, it was a good length for an expansion, and I thoroughly enjoyed the story and presentation.

    Graphics are the best they have been in Halo, although they never have been able to do human faces too well...I really enjoyed the Gameplay enhancements, including the revamped HUD, and I'd say the mechanics are much better than in Halo 3. I wish the Firefight mode (Horde equivalent) had more customization to it. I would love to have enough control that I could fight one hundred grunts unarmed, and then a bunch of Hunters.

    But sadly it's contained to predefined waves of enemies, and an ordered skull schedule. the waves will also continue until you die, so the best you can come to "beating it" is to unlock the achievement for gaining 200,000 pts on each map. Overall I'd give it a 9/10, and I am very much looking forward to Halo Reach (prequel to Halo 1, with many Spartans) If anyone plays on xbox live feel free to add me Mr Panucci

    I'm going to buy Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 soon, but my last game purchase was actually Super Mario World for SNES. Just got it in the mail yesterday.

    Most recently I bought Uncharted 2 for the PS3. Awesome game with a superb story, compelling characters and amazing gfx and physics relative to the hardware! Before that I picked up Arkham Asylum for the PC. Deffinately the best comic book hero game EVER!!!

    Most recently I purchased Prototype , Velvet assassin , CC red alert 3, I took advantage of the madness sale at gogamer.com .. woot .
    My most recent played is Wolfenstien -- still in progress , I like the game and abilities it brings , but as I find with any console port the graphics are lacking .. not too bad tho , I found the game refreshing as a FPS .
