    considering getting the "warlord" (?) add-on.
    Just finished Stalker, the rail gun provoked a wave of fallout nostalgia. Vultures eye. Just had the urge to play alpha centauri again.

    At the moment, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., just entered X16. Haven't been so scared since playing System Shock 2.
    I've also installed Arcanum on my old PC, but, of course, it won't work. Crap.

    i shoot better irl than with the iron sights on the AK's ingame. nuff said. :roll:

    the other rifles are just fine though. even the Viper 5 (mp5 mod/ripoff) has better long range accuracy with iron sights than the AKs have.

    Was soloing a zen-master in Wizards & Warriors, but the dude is just so over-powered that the game is not challenging.

    GalCivII: DA
    Civ IV (the Warlords expansion is worth it, I think)
    Bloodlines (Go Wesp5!)
    DoW:DC
    RoN: RoL (got sucked in by the steam-punk look)

    Of course, FO & FO2 have permanent real-estate on my HD, though I'm not currently playing either. I'76 is another that's still there but hasn't been played in a while.

    I've also been playing Etrom: The Astral Essence. Meh, reminds me a little of Soulbringer. I wouldn't recommend either unless you are particularly bored and you can get them dirt cheap.

    EDIT: I forgot to add The Warriors. *Sigh*, I wish there were more games where you could beat the ever-lovin' shit out of people with your bare hands.

    No no, not UO. AO - Anarchy Online. :)

    I did play UO for some time tho, but i never really got much into it, dunno why, it seemed like a very good game when i tried it out.

    Ah ok my mistake sorry dude, just a thaught I lost intrest in UO because of the whole lack of space to build new a new house and that you could not role play in town's very well if you where doing a medevil assassination plot type story because the guards would show up and smack you in the head with a poleaxe.

    Hmm, you are tempting me to either install a C64 emulator or to get to my cousin's house and claim my C64 back. Violently.

    Tried S.T.A.L.K.E.R. didn't exactly like it...

    So, I'm playing CSI: 3 dimensions of murder, and Americas Army still.

    Playing Resident Evil 4 (Euro Release) and hating Ubisoft by the minute for doing a cheapo port. I know it's a console game but if it's getting ported to a more capable platform (PC) you could easily put the nice graphics from the Gamecube version and the goodies from the PS2 Version (it has these). My video card feels underutilized. I like this approach to the RE franchise because it has more action and it's a bit harder than just shooting zombies. I had to drop NWN2 because I felt as if I was playing NWN with somewhat prettier graphics (I say somewhat prettier because I had to tone down the graphics because my 7800 GTX was coughing on battles). I'm postponing Supreme Commander until I have a rig worthy of playing it.
