    KOTOR 2 is great but I keep thinking that it's not as polished as the first one (little things like framerate and a major grammatical error in the dialogue within the first five minutes of gameplay). I'll have to wait until I'm a bit further into it before making a full judement (like after I've made my Lightsabre).

    I'm also pissed that Republic Commando comes out a couple of days before I leave meaning my Xbox will already be on it's way to Tokyo! Should I buy it anyway??!! I'm so torn!

    LOL, I'm on my 100th or so play of KOTOR #1, desperately waiting for #2 to come down in price because I think it is ridiculous to pay nearly $100 for a game that can be finished in 2 days.

    My genre of preference is RPG. I haven't played NW Nights, but I want to. My favourite though would have to be Morrowind.

    I also like Rogue Squadron, but I can't get it to work on my new compy because it way outdates the game. :(

    I really want to try my hand at online gaming, but my line speed simply isn't fast enough.

    KOTOR 2. Word of warning, the beginning is crap.

    No way, I thought the beginning was great, really drawing you into the story. I'm more than halfway through now and I'm still having a blast. Really getting sucked into it all.

    Good to see more gaming ladies!



    I might just have to try KOTOR2 and RC...
    I'm really enjoying playing Day of Defeat with my old clanmates again. Teamwork, few laughs, few drinks... all good.

    Just thought I'd point out that Blue Stinger on the Dreamcast is bad to the point of being comical, and comes highly recommended for that reason alone.

    I fiddled with RC and got it to work, and it kicked dangerous amounts of ass and took names (in that order). Once i get a new Vid card, ill have to pick up KotorII. Any recomendations on cheap cards?

    LOL - I don't know about the cheap cards but I can tell you about the more expensive ones :D
    I'm currently running a ATi Radeon 9700 128MB and it really kicks ass. But then I had my compy built to spec. I did really try to get the 9800 128 but I couldn't :(

    Well after many mishaps I finally got Dawn of War up and running to it's full potential. For those who didn't see my other post in some other thread it all started with the lack of a CD Key not included in the box which it should have been. Anyway I got a replacement only to find that I couldn't play the game, (once I did finally get it installed) in 32bit colour. When set to this all the in game text would go blurry and as such could not be read.

    Ah the hassle, still I figured I needed to update my video card driver to fix the problem, however before doing so I e-mailed the makers to see what they thought. After all there's no point in going to the effort to updating something when it isn't needed.

    Well as it turns out I was right about the update and so after a hasty download and installation I found myself throwing Imperial space marines against the Orcish horde of Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War!!!

    Tee hee, I'm in Mayhem heaven right now :D

    I might add at this point that the game is absolutely brilliant! If your fammilliar with RTS games you would know that they all require you to collect resources in order to build your base. Not with this game, you get to build up your force right from the get go, and you then have to engage the enemy to capture key points on the battle field. The more you capture, the quicker you can obtain reinforcments, so you can just send your army right in the thick of it as it were. It's brilliant not having to worry about resource collection. ;) :D

    And actually the PC game was based on the table top game of the figures, or minatures. Not the other way around.

    w00t! Just finished KOTOR. Great game. Now all I need to do is get several upgrades to my machine and then I can play KOTOR2 :)

    LOL.
    Out of curiosity, those who have played KOTOR (I'm assuming multiple times), what was your preferred character?

    Mine was Female/Scout/Lightside-sentinel(2 sabres)
    but darkside-guardian came pretty close.

    I have to give Doom3 the absolute-scare-the-bejeezus-outta-ya award.

    Battlefield 2 is only 3 months away!

    Playing Doom3 in absolute darkness with a surround sound system can really scare you! Of course buying the game just to see if it would scare you is a different kettle of fish. Altogether. :p


    Maybe when it drops to below $50.
