basically wanna start downloading now so i got all this stuff next week when it arrives :)

Far Cry is a very nice game, especially if you want eye candy from your new video card. I ordered the 6800 GT also and I can't wait to play Far Cry. Also, I've been tracking Doom 3 for two years now. It supposively (take with a grain of salt) is suppost to release August 3rd, 40 more days!!! I'd get Joint Operations, Far Cry, and I dunno what else. Have you tried Painkiller? It's ok. There are alot of big games coming out this year.

06-24-04, 07:57 PM
Yup.. 40 more days.. check the sig.. hehe ;) Also, theif3 has really nice graphics, might wanna try that demo. Max Payne 2 still looks pretty nice also :)

Well he did say graphically. I dont care for the game other than a graphic front :)

06-24-04, 08:35 PM
I never play a game twice....not even FarCry with is the best FPS I've played since HL.
I stopped 1/2 through PaiNkiller, to wait on the 6800 and sm3.0 patch
as for the rest of the "must haves":
World of Warcraft
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines

06-24-04, 08:37 PM
Sadly I stopped playing all games right now :(

Theif- I havent gotten around to it, but I wanna pick up where I left off
FarCry- I already beat it, but gonna run it through again with the new patch
Painkiller- Again stopped halfway through, waiting on new patch
Splinter Cell- Lost all my saved games, still havent gotten around to starting again

UT2004 deatchmatch is the only game I play now :) Bring on doom3!!!

06-24-04, 08:56 PM

yeah I know, I was just throwing my 2 cents in there... old programmer friend of mine worked on it, he said it was a miserable project ot work on...

Graphicly though I think they geared the game more toward an Xbox game, and thought about PC second, rather than the other way around.

Call of Duty is good. Play it loud.

S something leak

"S something leak" doesn't include any SM2.0 shaders. It's all Dx8.1 and not a good example to show off your shiny new 6800. The full retail version of "S something leak" will perform a whole differently than the leaked version because now it has been updated with tons of DX9 stuff.

The same goes for "D something leak".

Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth :)

PS3.0. Runs on C&C Generals Engine It can bog down a P4 3.0Ghz

06-24-04, 11:43 PM
Although its not slated to be released until 2005, Middle Earth Online will undoubtably incorporate SM3.0(assumption on my part). Can't wait for that :)

If you like FPS type games and like online games, try Endless Ages(www.endlessagesportal.com). Its got great pvp action as well as PVM and PK and its a role playing game. Free 5 day trial. The graphics however, are not going to be like Far Cry, but remember its a massively multiplayer first person online role playing game. It includes jetpacks, jetskis, hoverbikes, and assorted otehr vehicles and flying items, etc.

If u are into other games besides shoot'em up.

I'd say Colin Mcrae Rally 4 :)

Maybe the soon to be relased Ground Control.

Perimeter maybe too

06-25-04, 12:23 AM
Far Cry, Thief III Deadly Shadows, Painkiller, Lineage II, Anarchy Online-Shadowlands, Colin Mcrae 4, NWN(HotUD), and SWG will all get tested. I look forward to Doom3, S.T.A.L.K.E.R, and Everquest II. I am sure there are others but none jump readily to mind. I too am very interested in Vampire:Bloodlines.
I STILL have VtMR on my computer :D

One of my favorite lines Cris said in that game "Stand Sir! or shall I send you to hell squatting upon your arse?"

Can anyone confirm Thief 3 runs good on 6800? It runs like crap on my 9800P 128.

06-25-04, 12:53 AM
Haha. Yeah, I played Far Cry for like half hour, then stopped because I wanted to wait for a new video card. It runs like crap on my 9800XT, but I'm very picky.

Lately, all I've been playing is NFSU and UT2K4. :)

Oh, and the new Prince of Persia is going to be awesome. I don't know if it's gonna be released this year though.

06-25-04, 01:11 AM
Prince of Persia 3 is already out i think.

06-25-04, 01:22 AM
No, no, no... It was previewed at this year's E3, and I think there's a preview over at Gamespot.com, too.

But, Prince of Persia Sands of Time is teh ownage. :)

06-25-04, 01:57 AM
I stand corrected then :D
