    You play Far Cry online vslayer or Fetus? I really enjoy the game, and have been playing online quite a bit recently. However, I don't know how much time I will be playing since school is back in session.

    My name is IdleMind online there as well.

    Idle Mind,

    Fry cry seems to come with this Xfire IM for gramers things, you know anything about it or how to us it?

    Sure I have tried the online out just a little I got the game about 5days ago, I like it so far. I have always played a little Urban Terror ever since version 2.6. Realistic Combat Simulators are always fun in my book.

    I still fuck around on quake 3,although thats probably cos my 8mb rage pro powered laptop cant do much else.

    Other than that i play x-box.

    I used to play loads of video games on pc,but its always been FPS on pc's and its just too expensive these days with no real change in gameplay,i mean doom 3,to play that properly looking at the specs you really gotta have a mammoth pc,well in the graphics area mainly.

    Im waiting for pci express and standardization of laptops,so they can be upgraded,you will have that very soon.
    Itd be better then for people like me that just cant stand desktops anymore.

    I'm currently playing
    Deus Ex (for the 15th time

    Painkiller (really great fresh-new old school shooter, reminds me of Doom2)
    screenshot1
    screenshot2

    Baldur's Gate 2 now and then

    just finished Warcraft 3 (I like starcraft better, high fantasy setting bores me)
    trying to get Morrowind working. ATi drivers for Linux suck
    If you want to play games on Linux my advice is to get a nVidia card.
    In some games (Morrowind for example) the framerate is terrible.

    I have ATI Radeon 9000 Pro 128mb
    Linux Mandrake 10
    kernel: 2.6.3-16
    512 DDR 266mhz
    P4 1.8ghz

    Yes, I had Linux running now and then, but I sometimes got problems with my Radeon 9700...So I am back on Windows.

    Baldurs Gate II (preferably with Expansion) is cool, one of my favorite games. Played it through about 50 times I think; at least 20 times with my sorcerer, he got really nice stats by now.

    that is not the 3D one is it? I hate that one. I like the old isometric baldurs gates much more. It is a shame I don't have them anymore. I really enjoyed them.

    Nah, only isometric. The 3d one is either the Baldurs Gate for the PS2 (or was it PS1?) or Neverwinter Nights for PC.

    yep...now I remember; Neverwinter nights. I tried to play it for a few hours and then uninstalled it. I was very disappointed after the BG2 experience.

    That is true, Neverwinter does not compare to the BG series, but I found it quite entertaining when I played it with people over LAN. Also, I liked the map editor, quite a cool toy, and easy to use.
    But Baldurs Gate is one of the best games ever in my opinion.

    XFire is lame...it is designed to be an IM for people who play all games, so you can build up contacts. I don't use it though.

    You mentioned a beef about the physics in the game. What did you mean specifically?

    Idle Mind,

    Guns and dropped items that float on water or air, bodies that hang rigid rather then lay down dead, clipping errors, ect.

    I love Starcraft Brood War online. WHen I dislocated my knee (a few months ago), I bought the game SpellForce to kill some time. It's a pretty good game. Now that I'm working and going to school, I hardly play any video games anymore.

    I like video games but I'm REALLY crappy at them. I improve a little while I'm playing but after some time I stop improving and can't get better at it no matter how much I try. I get frustrated as hell and stop playing. It's come to the point where I get so intimidated by new popular games that I feel the need to play the easiest level and use cheat codes. Even by cheating though, I still find it fun.

    I think the longer I play, the more my skills decrease. As I stated above, I absolutely hate counterstrike. It bores me to death, I havenĀ“t played it for about two years. Recently I was on a LAN and everybody wanted to play it (all of them are playing on the internet many hours a day...). So I thought, ok I will lose anyway, but strangely I was better than ever before. I was surprised, and it was the same with Warcraft, I only played that game for a week when it was new and never touched it again, still I managed to be faster than those who train in it... I like that

    Yeah, I suppose you do have a bit of a point WellCooked. It doesn't bother me at all, but to each his own. I still think it's one of the best games visually so far, which is incredible since Crytek programmed the engine from scratch, and it's their first attempt at a game.

    I'm addicted to IL2 Forgotten Battles, a WW-2 era combat flight simulator. It is the only game I play. But I do play it quite a bit.

    Ubisoft is the publisher, Crytek is the programmer.
