    Well it would have to be something pretty special because I'm not big on first person shooters from the start. The scare factor and sound etc is not a plus for me either. Now if you can tell me that the narrative of the game is immensely engaging then I just might be tempted but apart from that, well...

    So tell me, is the story worth the ninety or so dollars?

    KOTOR Spoilers

    What did people think of the fact that you play Revan? I didn't see that coming...but now that I've played it again I can see all the clues they throw at your face *DOH!*

    ...apparently so, Grieyls. I only played the Demo, but will probably pick up the full version when it gets cheaper. The Demo is the first chapter of the game, and the "story" of the game is very well written!


    If there was only ONE Star Wars game to play on PC, what would it be?

    KOTOR 1/2? Republic Commando? Jedi Academy 1/2?

    KOTOR!

    I loved my character! I didn't see it coming at all, but then suddenly a whole bunch of stuff made sense! I kept saying OMG for 3 days. Best twist in a game yet!

    Would have to be X-Wing Alliance for me.

    I could never get X-wing alliance to work properly after the 4th mission. Now my computer is too supped up to play the thing.

    Okay folks, holidays so I get down to gaming again. And another re-run of KOTOR while I wait for #2 to come down in price. (Am I the only one who plays games multiple times? My flatmates think I'm completely crazy...) Anyhow, has anyone actually run into Xor? If you have can you tell me how.

    Well I hope none of you are playing Legend of Mir 3

    ...Qiu Chengwei, 41, stabbed competitor Zhu Caoyuan repeatedly in the chest after he was told Zhu had sold his "dragon sabre", used in the popular online game...

    Time to go outside and check out that big yellow fireball we call 'sun'

    Grieyls, to quote a gamer:
    "Sif! j00 1337! j00 pwnzor me!"


    Erm, translated means, "I'd like to but your skills would be too advanced for me to be an able opponent."

    Bah! My gaming talents are well over rated. Assuming they have a rating at all of course. In any case I play well in the single player game on easy but beyond that I just get frustrated. And I have not yet won an online game. Of course I only played the one and I didn't finsh it as my opponent started to swear at me through the chat function. I don't put up with that kind of attitude so I quite the game right there and then. Mostly I play against the puter as I've finished the single player part. Besides Goob, DoW isn't that hard to master.

    Anyone here played SW: Galaxies??? I'm thinking about getting ADSL (if I can) and online gaming seems to be the next logical step. I want to know if Galaxies is worth the money or if I should try something else.

    It's worth it if you like your persistent world RPG type games. I had a go at a PWRPG before and lost interest with it within the hour. It's hard to get involved with a game when there is no obvious goal. Of course that's just me.

    I just had another go at the Doom3 demo, trying to decide if I should buy it or not.
    Gawd that game gives you the willies! Might buy it, but I know I'll be hitting the esc button every time that big undead guy jumps out at you, catching my breath, then resuming to kick some zombie butt!

    I'm a huge RPG fan, I've heard good things about EverQuest2 and WoW, but not much about SW:Galaxies, which is why I was asking.

    I'm right there with you with the RPG fan thing though I have to admit I'm from the old school of Table Top games. That being said however I have got quite a few PC RPG games here, all though are single player games. Except Neverwinter Nights, which does have the Persistent World component to it. As such this was the game I was referring to when I mentioned it before.

    That being said I can't tell how "EverQuest" or "World of Warcraft" are like as I have played neither but I am very temted to give WoW a go. Just got get past the justification of spending that monthly subscription thing. I have a problem with that as I tend to look it this way. I've paid for the CD's to install the game I shouldn't have pay any more.

    Anyway, as far as SW Galaxies goes I know a few people who are playing it and they think it is fantastic so I gues it can't be all bad.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the subscription fee... I understand the need for it, but the way I see it is this.
    We should pay our subscription to the local host and they pay the company for the priv. of distributing the online component of the game.

    Yeah, I know the reason for the subscription and in all honesty it is only fair considering. Still, it is the one thing that holds me back from getting the game.

    I'm stil playing Kingdom Hearts..yeah I know! but it's fun!

    Tried to play Return of the King Last night but hated it!! Way too hard for beginners like me.

    Anyone else had trouble with these sort of games??
