Just thought to take a break from all of the techie stuff and see what fav programs (most likely games) you all are playing (using) on your system.

256 chickens that can say "bok" simultaneously while laying eggs asynchronously in 64-bit glory.

More about : game playing

Well, right now, I'm playing Dice Sliders on Yahoo. But I'm sure that's not what you wanted. I've put off playing any games until I build my new computer (1000 T-bird) next week-end. Then I will be playing:
Mechwarrior 3 and 4
Freespace 2
Crimson Skies
Nox (For a friend who likes the game but frequently gets stuck)

If you haven't tried it, and like fun flying games, play Crimson Skies. It's the first game in a long time that surprized me by how good it was. Plus, I got a free copy of it from MS. Be careful though, it's a hog.

Sacrifice! It's so addictive, my brother and I are refering to each other as Sac Heads.
NOLF is superb.

Sorry, but this is an incorrect statement.

Windows 2000 is built using NT technology, but it is far from being Windows NT 4.0.

Windows NT does not support Direct-X 7, so this game will not work correctly, if at all, on Windows NT 4.0. Sorry.

Currently I've been playing, of coure UT
a little quake, got tired of Diablo 2 and every once in a while a good game of Dungeon Keeper 2.
Now don't laugh I just recently just discovered Worms 2. It is <b>extremly addictive</b>. If none of you have ever played it you can download a demo at:<A HREF="http://www.worms2.com" target="_new">http://www.worms2.com&lt;/A>

WORMS 2 IS THE BOMB, i cant believe i forgot to include that in my list, it is the most addictive turn-based game you can buy, man the concept is just so intruiging (sp?), i cant seem to beat the missions though, im on the last 5 and theyre hard

If at first you don't succede, skydiving isn't for you.

Hey maybe we should try to get an internet game together? Have you ever been successful at it? Maybe this will help spread the addiction to other posters.

I was playing Baldurs gate until my hdd had a bowel movement, and I lost all my saves
January 26, 2001 1:19:48 PM

Let's see...

NOLF (just beat it, very cool)
CS (it runs nicely on a pii333 so i stick with it and satisfies my multiplayer jonesin')
Rollercoaster Tycoon! ( love this game )
Dungeon Keeper (just reinstalled it, still cool -- how does DK2 compare?)
Just installed the BG2 demo, tryin' before I buy (was thinking of getting the first one for the low price of 20 and starting some characters there first. thoughts?)
January 27, 2001 4:31:59 AM

Never played Dungeon Keeper only DK2. But it rocks.
I just tryed the Star Trek Elite Force Demo, I'm going to
have to get that game.Both good multiplayer and single player game.

i'm not seeing nearly enough counterstrike on this list. Hey, it's the greatest, man. And I get a very playable framerate (around 30 fps with very rare drops) at 1024x768 with a PII300 and a 8meg agp1x i740 based gfx card.

and then my roommate bought me FF8 for my birthday a few weeks ago... haven't done homework since... Ever since FF2 I've loved those. Thouhg it seems to tax my system much more than half life/cstrike.

And when i'm not playing around I'm working with soundforge/acid/vegas doing music and soundtracks.

Definitely get SS2 and Elite Force. I would say get the former first since it can be had for around $15 and is just outstanding (spooky too). Elite Force is a very cool game with a great story but quite short in single player -- I finished it in two (not very intense) days. The multiplayer is excellent though so that extends the value (picture Q3 multi with an excellent but short single player mode).
January 30, 2001 1:48:10 PM

i just beat Giants. It was a nice game. Had good graphics. The first part of the game with the Mecc guys was cool but the second and third parts of the game with the reaper and the giant were stupid and somewhat easy.
Nice game overall.
I am now going to give MS Combat Flight Simulator II a try, maybe online.
January 30, 2001 11:01:11 PM

I agree with you in messiah, but not on Planescape!

That was a kickass game!
Nice graphics, nice story and nice interface!

Hell , its like Baldur´s Gate!!
