    Just to name a few. The list gets long.
    Diablo is the worst game ever invented!

    Nah. It was released for the PC sometime around late 80s
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Mid 90s. And yeah, it was horrible. Warcraft III was
    the first Blizzard game that was actually good, and
    that's only because I bought the collector's edition
    and didn't want to feel like I wasted my money.

    >> Could never finish it though.

    (the origional Prince of Persia, that is), Me neither. But my dad somehow got a program, or wrote a program (I don't konw), which let you choose which level you wanted to start on. Sounds great, eh? But it messed up our computer ... and after that it was struck by lightning oddly enough, so I didn't use the cheat again. Bad omens and whatnot.

    I downloaded it the other week/month, runs funny on my lappy for some reason. The keys aren't as ... reflexive as they should be. As in, if I press the right key, and keep it down, then take it off, Mr. Prince stays running for the next three or four seconds. I've gotta find a way to fix that.

    NOBODY to play with 'cause ever noob out there

    Granted, I wish there had been a few more balance tweaks. But by and large I agree with you there. Aside from C&C, (back when it had a better quality to it), it was one of the major ones out there. Overall I enjoyed SC more than C&C.

    lol, Mario really doesn't know Ethic - this could get interesting. Hey mario, check out
    entropysink.com to meet the REAL ethic.

    some entropy with that sink? entropysink.com

    Friedrich Nietzsche

    "I spent a lot of my money on booze, birds and fast cars......the rest I squandered."
    George Best
