Finished NOLF2. Great game most of the time. The India level where you are not allowed a gun bugged me a lot, though. By far, the Antarctic base was about the best. Such good atmosphere.

Age of Mythology seems great to me and I rather like the single player game simply because its more about building armies than WC3 was. WC3 was about building up your hero. Great. But I want to build an army and so AOM suits me.

Btw, if you haven't already, try some of the nice cheats for singleplayer, which you type into the chat window in all caps:

BAWK BAWK BOOM
WRATH OF THE GODS
I WANT TEH MONKEYS!!!1! ( I think that's spelled right)

I like using the latter two in tandem. Flying monkeys anyone? I can make a regular Wizard of Oz-esque scene. I wanted to see what the god powers were like in.. uhm... succession. >

"Erick? Those Greek invaders have more powerful gods than we do... may we worship Zeus to stop them all?"

"No, ye fool! Our gods give us awesome powers like..."

"Yes, as I said. The Greeks are raining meteors, raising tornados, and setting lightning storms upon our base constantly... our peasants are running in terror at the might of the Greek gods..."

"Thor will grant us power to stop them."

"No, sir. Thor is hiding in Asgard."

"What? What do you mean he's hiding?"

"He said he wouldn't come out until the balls of fire had stopped..."

"Well, what are we supposed to do until then?"

"He suggested we hide, too, but that Asgard was the official hiding grounds of the gods and not for us."

"I wonder if Zeus would take some slightly plumpy ex-Norse worshippers..."

ZEUS: "There's always room for more!"

I'm waiting on the new Medal of Honor expansion, Spearhead. Also being a huge NFS fan, I got HP2, but compared to the rest in the franchise, this one is a major letdown, with less features and lack of mod support for new cars. However, it is enjoyable to some extent.

I'll probably get NOLF 2 around Christmas. So that is that. I wonder if the Wolfenstein addon, Enemy Territory will ship before Christmas?

Ok, I've played Battlezone 1 for years but of late I have become addicted to Battlefield 1942. It will win GOTY.

Yeah have Hitman 2 also , but a bit to boreing not much interest for me , BTW i got it for free with my Audigy 2

OOO i just got today Star Trek Starfleet Command III

AWESOME GAME for me atleast , alot of improvement compared to early version , and all ships from ST THE NEXT GENERATION + Voyager included and Defiant

you can play Federation , Klingon , Romulan single player missions and even some with BORG have selection but havn't playd them yet ooo and best of all you can refit your ships buy better shield , weapon , torpedos , hull , engine......

and you have in game warp capability when map is huge why waiste time on impulse when you can go on warp

Federation strongest ship is no suprise Sovereign class or Enterprise - E from movies , in first mission you get orders from Picard later you get your own small fleet to command giving orders and all
quantum torpedos are cool hit hard , on those bastard romulans and they cloaked ships

oh and since i had this game on preorder i also got free ticket worth of 12$ to Startek Nemesis movie


oh and performance even with 4x AA in heavy fights with alot of ships it runs very solid and no bugs at all

ill post a pic or two maybe later

Age of mythology - i dont have it, but tried it. Its almost the same as AOE. only you have some myth units and crap. The AI is stupid.. ahh IMO its crap. i played this game few years ago.

need for speed hp 2 - crap.

No One live forever 2

Lord of the rings: Fellowship of the Ring - Im glad i didnt buy this game. Its ugly and runs like crap. And the voice acting is terrible

Mafia - best game this year IMO

NHL 2003 - i never liked hockey but this game is fun

dont have too much funds for buying games right now,

but i downloaded Navy Seals mod for Quake 3 and it is one hell of a multiplayer game. It is awesome and realistic and the graphics are very nice, close to sof2 quality. The violence... if only the game had ghoul <drool>

So far i am addicted to the game, folks who have a cable or better try downloading it, it is around 380 mb but go to quake3 planet and use their peer to peer network and you get rates of around 250kpbs which makes the download last 10-15 minutes. It is similiar to Urban-terror but this game is highly team based. You need to radio a lot and get your attack time perfect.

Currently there are very few no0bs playing this game, so online game play on the 6 servers which are there is great.
