Since there's loads of posts about other types of media gubbins, I thought that Computer Games should not be missed out.

Particularly since I've been playing Final Fantasy XI all week. Anyone else taking up the online challenge?

I've been delving into Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War on the PC. Lacking the patience to paint ickle miniatures this is rather good, and being done by Relic also known for the Homeworld series it's a sophisticated and pretty little number. Single player's a little short, but the multiplayer is quite interesting as it keeps good track of your records. Hard core table toppers beware - I understand this isn't a direct translation as it's real time strategy, but it seems pretty faithful, although what would I know?!
