I thought I'd start a new thread in the same spirit as the "What are you currently listening to?" thread regarding music in the general section. The idea here is to just post whatever game(s) you're currently playing, what you think about them, whether they were hard to beat, etc. It also will potentially provide a way for people who play the same games but didn't know it to hook up and do multiplayer if desired.
Also, remember that we now have a Xoxide group on Steam (thanks, C.Hill)! If you're not already a member, join up, chump.
Here's the link for our Steam group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/xoxideforums

Yes, good idea Grez! You might also wanna throw a link up to the Steam group if you can find it, just a suggestion :P
Anyway, here goes:
Final Fantasy XI - My guilty pleasure. I quit about two or three years back, and just picked it back up maybe two or three weeks ago. So much has changed, it's like a whole new game... Still haven't decided if that's a good thing or not
Mass Effect - Picked up 1 & 2 for like $15 total or something last month. I'm trying to play through the first one so I can start on the second, but... I duno. The background story is really cool (I'm a big technology buff, especially when it comes to things like physics) but the actual gameplay and storyline haven't really hooked me. The second one is supposed to be much better, but it's kinda feeling like a chore to get through the first.
Inside a Star-filled Sky - At least, I think that's the title. It's something like that, anyway. Pretty cool game, it's a top-down shooter with a very interesting dynamic: you can go "into" just about anything you see. Enemies, power-ups, even yourself! Say you get hit by an enemy. You'll get knocked inside yourself, where you can pick up power-ups that will take effect once you go back up a level to give you an edge against the enemy who just shot you. Not finding the kinds of power-ups you want? Dive into a power-up and change it to your liking! You can go infinitely up or down, but the goal is to go up as far as possible. There are also temporary and permanent markers that you can flag as you go over them, and other players will be able to see your flag whenever they get to that marker. The temporary ones only show the flag of the last person who visited them, but if you flag a permanent marker, it will display your flag permanently (imagine that! lol). Very cool concept for a game, and at $8 I definitely recommend it to anyone!
Tvang, what do you like so much about EVE? I tried it out a little since I used to have a lot of friends who played it, and I just couldn't get into it. I do, however, LOVE the fact that they're coming out with that new FPS for PS3 (Dust 517 I think?) that ties directly to EVE. That's pretty much freakin' AWESOME, and it actually kinda makes me wanna buy a PS3 lol.

New free game I stumbled across on FB. http://us1.battlestar-galactica.bigp.../?afterlogin=2
Graphics are not bad, considering it is free.
GUI is not to bad, somewhat intuitive
Flight controls take a little getting used to but not to bad.
Runs in your browser, not an installed app!
Oh, it's free.
It's BSG, and you have to chose Cylons or Humans. It is kind of like EVE, you train skills, and resources you collect you use for advancements on your ship. Very straight forward and not a huge learning curve.
Did I mention it is free?
