Got bored of X2 &M:TW, have enough pbem CM to not need to play the AI, Battlefield Vietnam is a bit nerfed until the patch comes out (1.02 this friday apparently).

So I need a new game to keep me busy while the girlf's off at choir rehearsals/MSc classes.

And nothing EU style.

So amuse me

I'm enjoying Medeival Total War, but I imagine I'm about 3 years behind everyone.
Why not build a fabulous Sim city and let the UFO's level it?

I wanted to post and that was the first thing that popped into my head. I'm not a good person it appears.

sim city never really appealed.

yeah I like M:TW I've even got the vikings add on but it just gets a bit repetative after a few runs through.

How does the Viking expansion change the game?
I've got the newest release, but haven't loaded the Viking part.
I've been playing the game on "easy" and just got the 60% conquered message (I think I'll go for the whole world) and don't see myself playing through all the way again on a different setting any time soon.

I like the game enough, but easy is pretty damn easy and it seems to be lacking an element or two I can't quite put my finger on...reminds me a tiny bit of CM, but the in game battles could have a little more specificity I think...

Have you played Freedom Force? If you like comics at all, you'd like it...plus it has a pretty smooth/fun play style and they are (have?) releasing a new game soon...

Playing Baldur's gate 2 again. Not bad. Can get that and the expansion for 20$

Aw, Qweeg... you know how Venom gets right after he's had his distemper shot.

I found a way to run MoO2 under WINE. It runs under Win2k, but keeps freezing up and crashing, so I figure WINE will do a better job.

Congrats, Deacon.

BGH - finished freedom force, good game but lacking repeat value.

Viking gives you a new map/campaign - British isles about 300years pre the main M:TW era, quite good fun if you like hairy blokes with axes.

MoO2 - now thats an idea if it works under XP and I can find the disk

Works fine for me. You may need to use the Compatibility Wizard to get the installer to install under XP. And don't forget to grab the patch to update it to the latest version. ;)

Have fun.

It works for me on XP, but it seems to run the CD drive excessively. I had to do the usual tweaks to emulate Win98, or something.

MDA

Now Darkstar posted that two hours ago and I somehow missed it? Odd.

Maybe the CD drive is running excessively because I'm playing it off the CD directly?

try Dominion 2, best turn based fantasy strategy game around (fairly ugly, amazing depth)

MDA, MoO2 has constant CD spin... even with full install option. That's from it constantly looking up the background music, IIRC.

You can come play City of Heroes with me.

Thanks, that's good to know. Its hell on the laptop batteries, I could only play where I could plug in.

I've got my home system back now.

Sounds like HelloKitty wants you to dress up in your Spiderman pajamas, come into her bedroom, and spank her. Again.

I used to have Spiderman underoos. I'll leave you all to visualize that.

I've got Wolverine underpants, but that's only when I'm not wearing any.

I'll send your setup ASAP Beta.

MDA...this game is almost done...what's wrong, chicken?
