My Playlist 2011 - March

  • Rift: 
Burnt out a bit too much with the beta and head start hardly put any time into Rift in March

  • Battleheart: 

A great little gem of a game on the ipod/phone. Played ten hours and just started a second play through with different characters, two hours in and still want to play this… feel a bit guilty still having a Rift account subscription going and would rather play this little game. 

  • Dawn of War 2 Retribution:   

This has been my bread and butter on my PC since it released put thirty five hours and still enjoying it. Even with all the campaigns basically being the same just with different units. Looking forward to the new Last Stand update coming soon, Wargear unlocks linked with certain achievements = win in my book. Still a bit pissed they dumped GFWL support though but oh well.

  • Alien Swarm: 

Finally found some time for this Alien Breed style co-op shooter that was originally going to be an UT3 mod. Great fun though I seem to always have to choose the medic role because of incompetent public game players 50% of the time. The lobby system feels very much Left 4 Dead inspired

  • Revenge of the Titans: 

Got this game on steam because I liked the look and style, not a bad base defence game with a lot of possible unlocks to choose from.

  • Maple Story: 

Noticed the new mechanic class on the US servers and decided to give Maple Story a try. Got myself a Mech, shot up some stuff, and then wondered why I wasted so much time downloading it.

  • Space Hulk Board Game:

Not a video game but spent a lot of my gaming time making a travel version of this out of print game.

I agree with Battleheart, it's addicting as all hell.
I was also in the Beta for Rift, and it seemed fun.

Why do you miss GFWL?

Edited by Deltex

@Seedofpower

it’s mainly the Microsoft achievements i miss, I’ve been a fan of them for a while and feel it’s the only achievement system that has any meaning too me. It’s been an online record of every 360 game (and the odd PC game) I’ve played over the years and I can see which ones i need to go back to and finish off at some point. Steam achievements just don’t feel right to me, mainly because not all steam games use them.

The steams multiplayer searching for group is a welcome change though i only ever use it for Last Stand and being able to add your own badge icon is cool.

Personally I would be happier with GFWL support but that’s just me.
