Hi
I'm a third person game buff.

Games Ive played and pwned...


Devil May cry 3 (PC) and DMC 4 (PC)
Prince of Persia :Sands of time Triology
GTA Vice City & San Andreas
Tomb Raider: Legend and Anniversary.

I think these can give you an Idea of what kinda stuff i'm into....

I also like complex one on one fighters like the Tekken series... but sadly those are never available for the PC :( or are they...?

I know November is gonna be a good month with GTA IV, Tomb Raider Underworld and Prince of Persia Prodigy coming out but I need something to hold me down till then..... Graphics cut-off is at least as good as POP two Thrones....

Lost Planet I played halfway and got bored with the gameplay Midway... sorry.
Max-Payne I Played till my fingers cramped...*new York Minute Rules
GTA 3 was San Andreas right..?
I thought Gears of war was an FPS....

San Andreas was in GTA 3 line-up, yes.

Nah, Gears of War is third-person:

You can't run AA in DX9 mode, GoW AA only works in DX10. :thumbdwn: For what it's worth, the game doesn't really need AA, the level design makes it hard to spot jaggies or to get bothered by 'em. Just IMO.

The game is really fun and quite replayable. (at higher difficulties) The only downside is the crappy packaging+high price if you're in India.

No GTA 3 was the one before GTA:Vice City, set in Liberty City.

well ..i'm planning on registering a species on sporepedia.... A race of superintelligent little creatures (green colored obviously) who you contact if you need answers about anything in the spore universe....
The problem is whenever they answer... they are really ticked off and they have their foreheads furrowed in the "middle finger" pattern... They'll tell you anything but first you have to scratch their backs a bit and make the furrow go away... he he... And I shall name them Tickyuoffs... because they shall always disappear with a wisecrack that ticks ya off....

Don't know about that... sounds a lil old.... Is the gameplay fun enough to compensate for the graphics...?

gameplay is just like the other gta games, no motorcycles and a mute character are the main differences.

Not really, while it wasn't GTA 3 by name, it was in the GTA 3 franchise. Rockstar Games have a weird way of naming GTA titles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_(series)

GTA SA and VC fall under GTA 3 name.

GTA 3 is still called GTA 3, even if it was in the hello kitty franchise

Gears of War is really great game. You will play it hard time !
You can also try Quake4 and Painkiller. Just plain fun shooters

I've tried and finished painkiller several times.... and you are right it is a lotta fun... I just don't like the Quake/Doom/UT genre....

and I've never heard of indigo prophecy/fahrenheit

really...? I read the wiki on this and sadly it omits the graphics... and since its a 2005 game I dont really expect anything taxing my system at 1440 X 900.... now i need to find if anyone is selling this in India.....
