    Tell us what retro/current game you're playing, and tell us a little bit about it :)


    Need not be Pandora/etc specific; maybe you're retrogaming on xbox or PC ..

    I actually haven't been playing many video games since I RMA'd my Pandora. :(


    But there's this, Mars TD Plus. A Japanese tower defense game. Possibly one of the best in existence. You don't need to know the language to play it. It doesn't run on the Pandora, unfortunately.

    For my part, I don't have much time and am looking for somethign to maybe play; I've not touched much Atari 8bit in a long time. I'm tempted to try to identify a bunch of games I played on Vic-20 as a kid (bought on taqpe casette.. eep!) Or maybe I'll go back to my quest to beat Time Bandits (Atari ST, Amiga.)


    Time Bandits is sort of like Gauntlet - top down maze run and gun, working your way floor by floor to higher scores. The trick is that Time Bandits actually predates Gauntlet, so Gauntlet is not the first game of its type as peopel tend to think.

    Left4Dead single player , most days on expert.


    Wonderful game due to the random engine it has, different every time. I doubt anyone can finish a campaign on expert every time due to that.

    Dwarf fortress. A roguelike city-building game. Aside from that, I'm getting familiarized with Minecraft modding.

    Anyway, undoubtedly more Starcraft 2, maybe some SSFIV:AE.

    Been playing a lot of Klax :) Klax is a cool puzzle game where there are colored tiles coming down


    like a random guitar hero and to match 3 or more colors in any direction to clear them. What I like most


    about it is that each tile has a different sound so when there are a lot of them its like playing a beat :p

    There will always be time for it. Even when Idiocracy starts to rear its head in reality.
