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?

Right now I apending ridiculously long hours playing Winning Eleven 8 which is the Japanese fore-runner to Pro Evolution Soccer 4. The Pro Evo series is the football game which pisses all over Fifa in the way that Subbuteo pissed all over Striker in the 80's!
The last time I was so hooked on a game was when I was surviving on 4 hours sleep every night due to playing Unreal Turnament 2003 online.

I'm not quite prepared to pay a whole lot for Final Fantasy XI, but I'm playing the newly released Ragnarok Online for Oceana. Free beta play until December! Can't go wrong.

Yesterday I was playing soul Calibur 2 on the Xbox round my mates. Great game, but not much of an improvement from the Dreamcast version, but that's a good thing as that version is great.


Played a bit of Doom 3 as well and I'm looking forward to some network play later this week. happy.gif

Having only brought my Dreamcast to university, I've been playing Metropolis Street Racer on an almost continuous basis. 4 years on, playing on and off, and I only managed to unlock the last chapter last night! Still a long way to go... biggrin.gif

Doshin the Giant on the Gamecube

Been wanting this quirky lil game for ages, but was not willing to pay 15 for it so when I saw it for under a tenner I bourght it

Im a nice yelly friendly giant who makes a nice Island with mountains, dumps a couple of people on it who worship me and build a town if I help them out. If they pee me off or if they ask too much and im lazy, I turn red, sprout horns and bat wings and DESTROY DESTROY DESTROY!!!!!!!

Fun fun fun!

If you like your retro gaming try and pick up a copy of Retro Gamer magazine, a good read. and you get a cover disk with lots of old games and stuff on.

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?!

Not technically a "computer" game, but I'm currently working my way through "Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds" on the XBox.
