Just edged out Montreal 4-0 in first playoff round on NHL 93...

Ain't it strange that I like the oldest NHL the best? :?

Currently I am replaying Baldur's Gate 1/Tales of the Sword Coast. I have to replay all the BIS games on a more or less regular basis.

Apart from that I'm playing through a remake of the 8-Bit classic "Head over Heels". Like the original, great stuff. Quite hard.

Well, yes. The hard thing is, that i have no money, since there is no regular income. All income comes what you can steal from cash registers, etc. Soo, you're constantly in a situation, where you *cannot* rest/repair/heal for more than a few hours.

Just a while back, i almost got my 4 mercs to full health and i am currently very excited. Only problem being, that my merc's contracts expire in 48 hrs, i have $400 money and ammunition is seriously running out.

Bah!, I say. Onwards to capture a sector, that has 30 enemies! :D

Well I never heal, repair rarely and rest only when I must, so no biggie :razz:

Methinks I'd just choose to solo it with my IMP. :razz:

I'm kinda looking for a game right now. It has to be a new one, with extremely good graphics. No graphics, no game.

Oh, and I haven't become extremely shallow lately, it's just that I've brought a new PC and I want to test it's power a bit.

Got any tips, anyone?

Oh, and I'm currently playing Metroid: Prime and WW.

What about the leaked version of HL2?

I would recommend Max Payne 2, a great game in many ways, including graphics.

^NHL 2004. My comp can run NWN on full details easily, same with NHL 2003 or any other games, but in NHL 2004 it just plainly fucks up (goalies without pads etc).

I just finished KotOR... outstanding game... if it's not RPG of the Year I'll eat my keyboard without ketchup. Also just finished Deus Ex: Invisible War. A very good game; just not as good, in my opinion, as the original overall.

Am begging husby to download JA2 Urban Chaos for me, and am watching the shelves for Silent Storm, which I shall snap up the moment I see it.

Other than that, got HotU for Xmas but am waiting for the right mood to strike to play it.

Light or darkside? Either way, I would recommend playing the other side too.

You liked DX: IW? I only tried the demo and it didn't really give me a good impression. I've lost most interest in the game and I'm in doubt about whether to buy it or not, even though I loved the first, would you recommend it?

There is no way on earth I could play KotOR darkside. Seriously.

Yes, I enjoyed DX:IW (I hear the demo was truly awful). It was a good game; actually a very good game compared to most FPS I've played. But it was not, in my opinion, close to the complexity, atmosphere and downright genius of the original.

Still worth the money, IMHO

i hope you aren't plagued by the laggy performance with HotU, di... it really sucks. i get less than .2 fps when more than two critters are on the screen with any kind of spell effects happenings. oh well...

i just finished a modded bg2, though a multi-re-install of my OS over the course of the last few weeks has left me wondering if i really want to re-install bg2 and tob to finish up (just started tob). i have HotU installed and running like crap. [rant]arrgh. just once i'd like to buy a 3d game that worked the year i bought it... even the following year would be nice. even morrowind runs on my pooter, now.[/rant] i also have... arcanum *gasp* installed. boredom i suppose. oh well. :)

i've mentioned over at missy's the... coincidentally timed PR given to the fall creators due to BIS' demise. anyway, i'll probably give that a go once it's ready as a result...
