I am playing Dark Souls.

Yea, don't ask me either, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Vanguard is still around? I think I played it for a week or so when it first launched.

Yea, it withered into F2P. I recall BarkingTurtle lamented the fact, if that gives you a timeframe for it.

With a longer break now I may get back into Skyrim. Mixing in some NBA 2k13. One other thing I've considered is F2P mmos. A return to LOTRO or perhaps one I've never played before.

Gonna try really hard to do an LP of Xenoblade.

Love the game, but so much busywork.

I picked up All of the Borderlands 2 DLC (except the skins, because, wtfderp) for myself and my girlfriend plus Left 4 Dead 2 from the steam sale. Been mostly playing L4D2 with her, a friend of mine, and his g/f. I may pick up a couple more games while the sale is going on, I'm a sucker for steam sales... makes me feel like I'm making back the money I spent on my PC. Especially compared to buying games on consoles at release.

This, although I don't think I have a chance, my wife likes to watch so I can't play as often as I would like. She's really enjoying the story so far, the game is amazing.

I'm trying not to spend a dime so I can buy a pc, a ps4, ARR, and Dark Souls 2.

I've been playing little spurts of F2P EQ2 and TERA.

I logged into DCUO on the PS3 just to test out my new keyboard/controller and realized I just can't play it anymore now that I've gotten a taste of FFXIV:ARR.

NCAA football 14, with a little FF9 or FF8 in between. For some reason, I've been wanting to get back into one of the latter two.

Just bought Cube World for what's equal to 20.00 bucks. I'll play that while I wait, and maybe play around a little here and there after FF14 comes out.

I went back to Vanguard because of the outstanding crafting.Contrasting it's crafting with most games out there really makes you aware of how shallow/dumbed down many of the games are today.

Ah yeah, I forgot about the crafting in Vanguard... yes it was very involved and interesting...

FFXIV:ARR actually has very good crafting too... maybe not quite the detail of Vanguard, but way more interesting then most.... certainly an improvement over FFXI.

Anything is an improvement over FFXI crafting imo. Synthing 60 holy waters to get 1 single level of Alchemy skillups? No thanks.

Not to mention the millions of gil thrown away just to get a few levels. Leveling smithing was beyond painful to my character's wallet. It's never a good sign when you're praying for your synths to break.

Not to mention also how boring it was. At least you are more involved with the FFXIV:ARR crafting. I was bored to tears levelling woodworking to 100+6 in FFXI, but I did it anyways.

I happened across DOTA 2 after phase 3 ended, and I have been playing the crap out of that. It is my first time playing a MOBA and I am enjoying it a lot. It seemed noob unfriendly, but like anything else the more you play the better you get.

I've been playing Real Racing 3 on the iPhone... I know it's not FF related or even RPG... but it's free to download and play and it's such a great game...

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ea.games.r3_row&hl=en

Apple: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/real-racing-3/id556164008?mt=8

Or you can search your phone store for Real Racing 3, if you want to add me as a friend in the game send me a PM so we can connect on FB or Apple Game Center.

I've resorted to re-playing Borderlands 2, to get the last character available to me (Gaige) to 50. I don't intend to buy any DLC until they group it together for a lower price much later on, so it'll have to hold my interest for another month or so.

Maybe I should give Star Ocean: The Lost Hope International a chance again, as well. Rented it and gave up on some boss fight, then bought the game on a whim and beat him rather easily, but haven't touched it since...
