It's funny, I've never gotten into multiplayer games myself. All the best gaming moments I've ever had have been single player, either by necessity (my beloved Planescape: Torment is single player only) or because I'm an unsociable wench. :)

Actually, I think part of the reason I've never played much cooperative multiplayer is because I've never really had any friends who wanted to play with me; most of my friends haven't really been the sort who'd be into LAN parties or playing online (although I would like to say that strip Neverwinter Nights PvP is very entertaining, hehe, even if I always end up being the person with all my clothes still on). It's only since I've gotten into Guild Wars that I've been enjoying playing cooperatively with someone else. I bought it for my best friend last week for his birthday so that I could have another person to go questing with and to enjoy the thrill of merciless slaughter of hostile creatures with.

I like to play mages. My current favourite GW character is an elementalist/mesmer, my Nameless One is almost always a mage, and I can't remember the last time I played NWN/BGII/whatever with anything other than a sorcerer or wizard. There's something about the thrill of Fireballing something that makes my girlparts tingle. I almost never play rogues or healer-types. But in PnP D&D, as I think I mentioned before, I much prefer to play fighters/rangers/paladins (yay for two-handed swords!).

And I totally want a Hammer of Not Bickering. It would be very useful for our Wednesday game, which sometimes feel like an issue of Order of the Stick. :)

For me, it is more difficult to arrange the logistics of such events. All the activities described above took place during long separations from my wife, which is why I don't play much. But for me, playing single-player is too much like being alone.

And thanks for the link - that brought back humorous memories of many quests.

The elf in your avatar looks a hell of a lot like Katee Sackhoff's Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica.


Planescape: Torment

I absolutely adored that game. I played it through 3 or 4 times. I haven't played in years. I don't know if I even still have the disc. Sad sad.


Generally, I like my Black Isle-style games single player, but I did do the WoW thing in a semi-hardcore manner for a year and a half. That was good times, but I got really burned out and have barely looked at it in many a moon.

There's really only one game that I can play over and over and not get sick of: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

I just finished it for something like the 12th time. I even got my 5 year old begging me to let him do the last boss fight over and over.


I almost always played magic-users table-top and fighters on the computer. My Nameless One is nearly always a thief.

It's indeed Starbuck! I needed a portrait for my PnP elf paladin and am too lacking in artistic skills to draw one, so I used base images of Katee Sackhoff and Elrond's armour to put together something that looked relatively appropriate for the character:



My four-year-old demands his turn too when I'm playing games. He prefers WWII flight sims (obviously too many movies), but he is prepared to compromise by helping me drop Horrid Wiltings on Jon Irenicus in BGII. Of course, he is not very expert, so there are lots of reloads, hehe. :)

That's nice work on the elfification of Starbuck.


I've played Castlevania: SOTN enough to know the cheap ways to grind xp and the mobs that drop exactly the right eq so as to make my character super-buff so that I can safely turn my boy loose on Dracula without having to deal with reloads.

I'm caught up too. There's bound to be an explanation. Was that the last episode of Season 3? See, it's a cliffhanger...it's just not real. Right?

I was trying not to spoil it for you.

She is not a Cylon I am positive. She is still alive but captured by the psycho Cylon.
