Portal 2! Great game, with perhaps the best ending and plot ever made. I really recommend it to everyone
Oh, I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?

I'm playing Panzer General (specifically, Panzer General Forever, an accurate remake available for free.) It's a trip down memory lane. However, I miss a lot of the features of Wesnoth. For example, it doesn't show you the path a unit will take. One time I knew where a hidden enemy unit was, and I moved a unit, hoping that the computer would not choose a path that took it by the enemy unit, but I got "ambushed". Also, I'm really wanting to hit "control-v" all the time.

Do you have any advice for using paratroops? Mine get slaughtered while jumping in behind strategic cities, unable to put a dent in the anti-aircraft guns and cut to pieces by artillery. So one adjustment I've made is to never upgrade an experienced infantry unit to paratroop. I'm guessing they should mostly be used to capture uncontested airfields.

Right now I've finished Moscow with a minor victory and next is Kharkov. The branching factor in the first campaign is just insane. That would be interesting in a Wesnoth campaign. Are there any Wesnoth campaigns with a huge number of possible paths?

StarCraft 2. And I have declared that StarCraft has the worst community ever. There is so much qq...it's ridiculous.

Out of curiosity, what is your 1vs1 ranking in SCII and on which server do you play?

I play Starcraft II as well and it might be interesting to play a few games in a row against someone I know. I'm a mid ranked plat at the moment.

I generally agree that the Battlenet community isn't very friendly but it seems to have gotten a lot more friendly since SC:BW (not that that's saying much).

I've been playing a little 0AD and FLARE lately (in addition to the usual Glest, but that's mostly for my modding work.)
It's spelled "definitely", not "definately". "Defiantly" is a different word entirely.

I play on the North America server. If you want my info, PM me, I don't really feel like giving it out to everybody on here, lol.

Unfortunately in 1v1 I'm bronze, however it's really a "relic" from when I was terrible (I'm around the silver-gold level now, I can go toe-to-toe with platinums and even beat them sometimes, though my macro needs work.) but I haven't gotten much time to play ladder. Hence I am silver 2v2 and platinum 3v3 (3v3 probably doesn't hold much water though). During the summer when all my schoolwork is over I'm planning going to make it to silver, platinum if I'm lucky.

Also during the Brood War days I was still in..elementary school I believe. So I really had no experience with the StarCraft community then, haha.

I've been playing FLARE ad-nausium for the past couple months.

Other than that, I've really gotten hooked on Frogatto's new arcade modes. And I can even play those on my iPod, which is awesome to the -enth degree. :D

I've been bouncing kind of all over the place. Trackmania has found a bit of my time recently.

I picked up "Frozen Synapse" on steam yesterday, and if there are any X-COM fans or just fans of tactical games in general, you should totally check it out. Its really quite good. Another bonus is that every copy you purchase includes a free gift copy for a friend.
