    Hello All

    The first patch for Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds is now online, ready to download.

    The patch fixes up a few problems with the game such as A crash that occurred after selecting certain items in the Editor, Wookiee Carbon collection bonus is at the intended +5%, Rebel Farming Bonus is at intended +5% and Heavy Artillery is now doing proper damage. The patch is 2.0 MB in size. You will need WinZip to unzip it.

    Has anyone heard about the game called Medal of Honour: Allied Assault. Looks very good. Comes out next year and it runs on the Quake 3 engine. It's a first person shooter game set in WW2 like Saving Private Ryan. Both are very similar.

    If you haven't seen any screenshots of the game do look them up, they are stunning. [link=http://gamespot.com/gamespot/stories/previews/0,10869,2831754,00.html] Gamespot [/link]has a few screenshots up and has a preview of the game.

    Stinky's PC Game reviews:

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon:
    Overall this game is a mix of strategy and open ground combat. If you liked Rainbow 6 then you will love this. The graphics are pretty average and will run quiet chunky on most systems. Definitely a try before u buy game.
    Graphics: 8/10
    Control: 7/10
    Playability: 6/10
    Overall: 7/10

    Star Trek Armada 2:
    A space combat sim with more view options then there are gameplay options. While this is true, I think the graphics look less impressive than the first S.T.A.
    Gameplay is good, however, it?s hard to enjoy as due the addition of warp drive, ships can warp past most your defenses and straight into your base.
    Graphics: 6/10
    Control: 6/10
    Playability: 9/10
    Overall: 7/10

    Rollercoaster Tycoon:
    A great little game, which is very similar to an old favorite *cough*Theme Park*cough*. If you liked that game you will love this one. Setting up the individual rides, you can choose tracks that have been designed already or you can make your own. After making your own you can measure all the stats and G-forces on your rides to see what kind of pressure they will be put through. HOWEVER, having designed a ride that put the riders through 12g's max, I found that only 12ppl in 5 years plucked up the courage to ride it...(wimps). But afterwards they loved it, but still decided not to ride it again. :(
    Anyway, graphically the game is slightly dated, but it looks nice and tidy. Gameplay is relatively easy to get started and have fun.. However, due to the limited nature of the game, it can get a bit monotonous after a few days/attempts. Overall its good harmless, non-violent fun.
    Graphics: 9/10
    Control: 9/10
    Playability: 8/10
    Overall: 8.67/10

    Commandos 2
    Hard, very hard. If you like the first one for the challenge, then you will like this one. 3d rotatable maps, with more character types and classes makes this game more involving than ever. Although this might not be everyones cup of tea, as the gameplay is somewhat slower than the average top-down strategy. Good graphics combined with hard, sometimes frustrating gameplay makes this a game that will last for a reasonably long time.
    Graphics: 9/10
    Control: 7/10
    Playability: 7/10 (Very frustrating at times)
    Overall: 7.6/10

    Return to Castle Wolfenstein:
    Great, awesome game. Aesthetically pleasing, easy control and nice clean, detailed graphics. Runs smooth on just about any system and is creepy enough in places to make almost anyone jump. The plot is well thought out, and the maps contain various routes that can be taken (including secret passages).
    Graphics: 10/10 (Can?t give it more unfortunately)
    Control: 9/10
    Playability: 10/10
    Overall: 9.67/10 - What are you waiting for? GO GET IT NOW!!

    ok then...

    Empire Earth:
    Well, I approached this game open minded, due to not knowing what it was about.
    Its almost identical in most ways to Age of Empires 2, except that it goes from the stone age to the future in development. Besides that, the gameplay is easy to control and can be fun on multiplayer maps as the single player is a tad on the easy side to complete. Graphically, the game is ok, more 3d than AOE2 but it doesnt look as impressive.
    Graphics: 6/10
    Control: 8/10
    Playability: 8/10
    Overall: 7.34/10

    Havent played Harry Potter (oo-er), as its not a game that really has caught my attention. (is it even out?)

    Is it possible to "make a backup" of it without a crack? Or does it have cd protection?

    Ive played and finished Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Excellent story, levels, AI and I loved the silent missions.

    BUT THE ENDING WAS LAME!!! :(


    Harry Potter: This game was very childish but if it kept me playing to 1 in the morning to finish it it can't be that bad. Actually if you have seend the movie or read the books you would enjoy it as it reveals parts of the story you don't see. Like what was Potter doing when the other two were researching the stone in the library. NO, I won't tell you, not yet anyway. :)

    That reminds me I saw a t-shirt yesterday that said "Harry Pot-Head, and the sorceror is stoned" :D :) :D

    Well, I thought it was funny anyway.
