Hi ppl

I'm a bit bored w/ all the texts to read and those exercises to get finished. Think its time for some refreshments.

So, do you guys here play games?

I'm thinking of replaying Myst 3 : Exile, I finished for the first time more than a year ago.

So what games are you ppl playing these days?

Atomic Bomberman - some bugs but great game though

Warkraft - old but nice!

Simon the Sorcerer - it makes me laugh (warning - some art of canadian humor inside not appreciated by everybody)

Starkraft - great when played in teams!

I'm not playing any games atm, but I do play ROMS whenever I can, and other stuff you can play on emulators. I play rpgs only, I'm really big into the whole fantasy thing. Hate futuristic rpgs though.

I haven't played any games in a while. I basically have nothing really to do for the summer, so I might dig up Starcraft and Diablo II; get good enough, maybe play battle.net...

StarCraft and Unreal Tournament pretty regularly...
Warcraft III the odd time; but that game is so frustrating.

Yeah - me too. :(

But I watched my housemate play Resident Evil : Code Veronica X last week, it's ok if I watch. I don't feel AS guilty that I am not programming.

I think I bought and completed 30 games last year, this year only Never Winter and Vice City.. unfortunately there are a couple of corker RPG's coming out in the next couple of months so maybe.. NO.. MUST - FINISH - GAME....

Battlezone II (Patch 1.2): Forgotten Enemies Mod (Part 2; Multiplayer Revision C)

It has to be the greatest game ever. Combining base strategy with unit strategy (different units/weapons for different situations) plus 3D first person action (you drive your units).

The game came out in 1999 but the graphics are stunning! The FE mod just boosts the graphics tenfold. Multiplayer games are fun like heck and there's always a server up for you to play (you can host your own too). In multiplayer there's team play, MPI (humans vs. computer), deathmatch, capture the flag, and race.

With FE, there are 4 races, 50+ units, 120+ weapons (including the morphed states), over 20 single player missions in the original game, 19 in FE, tons of mods available, and hundreds of multiplayer/single player maps.

You can check out the graphics of this game on a lower-end machine here. BTW, all the screenshots taken in this site were outside the cockpit with no HUD (heads up display gui). The red "laser" on some of the pictures is where the player is looking at. These are the single player FE campaign walkthroughs:

I'm playing Morrowwind with the Bloodmoon add-on. Nifty
addition. Now when you go walking in the country, you come upon these strange mines and caves where all sorts of evil
lurks. I suck at this game. I can't even win when I cheat.

WAs hardcore Asherons Call II until may, but after they screwed up the already bad balance... ugh...
Currently playing Enemy Territory, it's a blast.
Looking forward to Lineage II and Ever Crack II.

Ah, I suck too. I had to start all over because I forgot what I
was doing, and the Journal was a mess, and I was lost. Now my
character is only at level 2...

I just started playing morrowind and bought the bloodmoon expansion also. I've got a lvl 10 character and I'm currently directing the mining colony, just getting started, but its fun. I was running through the tundras and this berserker mage attacked me and I killed her and looted and found a dagger that deals 10-20 damage and deals 10 damage every second for 10 seconds. It freaking rocks!

I'm not sure why but recently I've started to fall back to CS addiction. I've left CS for quite some time only to start back after having a casual game with my bunch of friends at the nearby Cyber Cafe. I felt the desire to fire again!

Mmm. . . Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Escape Velocity Nova. Can't wait till it comes out for Windows so I can stop playing it on my brother's computer. . .

You see you are smart and intelligent. Vice City was the , THE most awaited console to PC conversion EVER.

And it lives up to expectations. Stunning game.


I guess I could say I have swapped TS for Vice City....:)

You know their trying to ban games where you get to beet the #&!^ out of cops :D.. I see there point but I think it's rediculous. Freedom of the press, and vedio games aren't the cause of vilence(There are studies done).. It would take an idiot to try to mimick a vedio game anyway:confused:

Morrowind -- I'm about to get bloodmoon expansion
Serious Sam, the Second Encounter
Microsoft Visual C++ 6 :D
Various Wolfy 3D Mods (I like retro shooterz!)

I am about to start a new game in Chrono Cross again. I haven't played that game in over a year.

Now that the release version is out... does anyone else play Star Wars Galaxies ? You can find me on Ahazi, Naboo most likely.

Edit:
Oh, and on a sidenote: As there are only US servers, the game is not officially on the shelves in germany. People are paying up to 200$ for it on ebay. I ordered it from the states and including international express shipping ( ordered friday, received monday morning ) and european taxes of 14.x% I only paid 100$ for the collectors edition. I already thought of buying 5 or so and selling them on ebay. Some people must be real idiots.
