Return to Castle Wolfenstein!

Civ 3 is getting a lot of play, even if it is missing features.

The Operational Art Of War Century of Warfare Pack has me invading West Germany on a regular basis!

I can reach the Rhine in 12 days or so. Sometimes much less.

I play UT a LOT now. It's getting addicting because I play my friend online (who I actually have seen in person), and it's a helluva fun to talk on the phone with somebody and distract them while you aim your sniper rifle.

Alice is pretty damn cool, especially with a Soundblaster and 4.1 surround

I feel a bit silly saying this, but I still play Q3A about 95% of time! I just can't get enough of CTF. ChessWorks is way cool too; can play online. Except I get slaughtered often

Urban Terror.

I just bought Alien vs Predator.
It's pretty cool but it's hard to play as an Alien. Those things can crawl all over the place. Easy to lose your bearings.

I know it's not a real "gamers game" but I love Age of Empires II.

Also, after all the hype this summer, I've taken up the Tomb Raider Trilogy. Sure, the movie wasn't that great, but now, that's not Lara running around, it's Angelina!

Boy, do I need a life or what?

Elite Force, THPS 2, Airburst, TA, Rogue Spear. I will probably get UT once there is a OS X version.

I'v never been interested in first-person shooters like Quake or Unreal (save for Nintendo64's Goldeneye: perhaps the world's greatest videogame...it's either that, the original Legend of Zelda, or Super Mario Bros. 3). I like to play non-gamer's games like SimCity 2k and 3k, tronGL, minesweeper (of course), and any arcade, atari, or NES emulation I can get my hands on.

There is an X version. It just sucks right now. Give the guy time...

Surprisingly no body talks about Heroes of Might an Magic III :confused: and CivII. I've lost many hours playing at those two game . But UT still got the point !!

No one said Starcraft, Deus Ex, or Rainbow Six?!? :eek: hehe.

Lately though I've noticed a shortage in new games that cause excitment when released. I'm hoping Myth III and the 2002 releases will change this (warcraft 3!)

Is it just me, or are the graphics in snood really sub-par when compared to that of Bust-A-Move or Puzzle Bobble? I know its all about the gameplay and not graphics with this game, but couldn't they touch it up a little? Afterall, they released a Gameboy Advance version!

It doesn't take much to change the picture resources

Well Enigma I am hoping when they port Snood to X they change the graphics a bit

How'd you get TOAW running? Or are you cheating and using a PC? (Last I tried, it wouldn't work in VPU, may need to try it again)

ditto on Civ3

Harpoon3 will destroy my GPA once I get the money together. I will own it!

Deus Ex was undoubtedly the best game ever created.

You are correct, sir!

Over the past year, my gaming time has been divided between Unreal Tournament, Deus Ex, Quake III, Chrono Trigger and Tales of Phantasia (both for SNES), with a little Civilization II and StarCraft thrown in here and there.

Did anyone check out the new Warren Spector interview IMG posted a link to yesterday? Deus Ex 2 s going to rock! I'm most excited about EV Nova though.

UrbanTerror? Man, thats one of the worst and overhyped mods I ever set my hands on.


If you are used to StrikeForce for UT or other mods like that, UrbanTerror just pales. Its sucks horribly.

Aaaaanyway. Alice was a great game... and Giants: Citizen Kabuto had me laughing like crazy and is a great game (except the last bit where you play Kabuto... gets a bit redundant).

Otherwise I play Day of Defeat (WW2 HalfLife mod... awesome mod) and CTF for UT and been playing a lot of Marathon:Resurrection for UT too... Kill the man with the ball is just too damn fun

I played some Giants at MWNY and while it was slow and buggy (about 15-40fps on a Single 867 with GF3), I loved the humor in it. The first level was to capture the smartykid lol.
