What are you playing?

The question is: What game(s) are you playing or what are you going to play (on weekend, tomorrow)?

I'm planning to play Chaos Engine on weekend. Lock the door, close the curtains, turn the phones off, turn the volume to ten, drink Cola and play one of the best action game ever.
I remember when I got czech computer magazine EXCALIBUR in the summer of 1993 and there was an article about this game. I thought: I MUST have it.
Now: I MUST play it as soon as possible, I can't control myself

I'm hoping to play Blackwell Unbound very soon. I've pre-ordered it and it's supposed to be released today (after a delay in the previous release date on Friday).

At the moment its Death Trap, an achingly boring game by Anco, but this weekend I'll be mostly playing God of War II on PS2 as its my birthday.

Yay!

Ooooh happy birthday for the weekend!

I'm mostly playing SWOS, The Settlers, Sabre Team and the enhanced Trespasser demo featuring those 'spitters' from the first JP movie.

Call that a game? Where are the polygons? Where is the HDR lighting? What version Pixel Shader does it need? Will it run on my nVidia 9900GTX SUPER?

On WinUAE, I've been playing around with a whole host of games, WHDLoads and ADFs.

It is amazing just how many Amiga games there were, back in the day. Being on an isolated continent and having only one or two friends as an adolescent meant I missed out on a boatload of games... I think I bought like ten Amiga games, my friend about fifteen (a feat for highschoolers...). We had about 200 cracks between us, many of which were bugged. Now I see how big the scene really was, and still is... Amiga magazines failed to convey to me the enormity and variety of the games catalogue... Through these forums, I see how narrowly anglocentric my vision of Amiga always was. At present, I'm hunting down more "obscure" (subjective) Amiga games in order to re-Amigarise myself through WinUAE.

In the meantime, I must confess to compulsively playing Raiden and R-type on MAME. Only Secret of Monkey Island and Powermonger on WinUAE hit me hard like this with powerful nostalgia...

Not sure, some options are:

NES - Bionic Commando
Gens / MD - Saint Sword (not that good game, but playable - to complete game have to finish all levels one more time )
DOS - Dune 2
PC - Rise of Nations: Rise of Legens (great game, I started last campaign, after this game I'm planning to play Medieval: Total War, another great game)
PS2 - Shadow of Collosus (this one I played more then half trough, but for some reason I just lost interest)
Amiga - thinking to play either Rodlands or Blues Brothers.
