I could never get into Homeworld 2. I don't know why.

I can remember this being tucked away in a directory on my Half-Life CD. I saw it, and lost my shit. It looked amazing. PC Zone were also looking forward to it, and when they reviewed it (it was on the cover image, I believe), I couldn't wait for the release date.

If I can get it working I am going to play Diablo (the first one)

I played the demo back in 1996 but never got around to playing the full game. I thought I should catch up.

Also been playing Alien vs Predator from last year (got it free) which is actually quite good fun. Playing as the Alien is always good for a laugh, especially with the excessively drawn out kill sequences you can trigger.

I'm rather tempted to invest in a pre-owned copy of Half-Life 2: The Orange Box, but, must, save, money...

It's 9.99 new on Amazon, to help you gauge if it's worth the money pre-owned.

It's definitely worth owning.

Played Dungeon Keeper 2 again for the first time in years. It's still great, graphics are pretty dated but the gameplay's still amazing. The series really needs a reboot, I'd buy it smile.gif

Gamestation were trying to sell it for 17 pre-owned last time I was in, so 9.99 is pretty good. I hope it's still around that price in June when I can finally buy new Xbox games.

My local GameStation were selling it for 15. I've since spotted it new in HMV for the same price. So 9.99 new is indeed rather a steal. I may still opt for the slightly cheaper used option though, but not yet... I've kind of overdone things already as it is. I may have a shopaholic problem. unsure.gif

The more I even think about Fable III, the more I realise that it is awful. I don't hate it, though. I probably should by now.

It's just a bad sign if I of all people can't get through it without making a mental list of all the ways in which it could be objectively improved. I mean, me. I know nothing.

I've had that problem the last couple of months. I don't think I'm entirely over it yet as I can think of several things I still need (read: want).

I'm definitely buying more DS games after Christmas.

There is a heck of a lot wrong with that game (and Fable II for that matter) but I just can't stop myself from loving it. It's just a fun, easy game to play and I like all the daft little things in it. Like Jammy. happy.gif

I've noticed that the original Crysis has appeared on Xbox Games on Demand.

I remember there being quite a fuss made about this game when it came out (mostly people online complaining about how insanely high the required system spec was). Is it a good game?

Yes. It's probably the most tactically flexible shooter I have ever played. Plus it's damn good fun and really, really pretty.

Due to being away for most of this week for work and having borrowed my mums netbook, I am going all retro and playing Baldur's Gate Trilogy (a mod that lets you play the first Baldur's Gate in the BG2 engine.
