how can you be a junky for a single player game that gets boring extremely fast? >_<

also jeff, im not sure if my motherboard can handle that mobile card. my brother told me it only takes thunderbirds, and don't you have to buy a seperate heatsink and fan for it too?

have you been to siliconsolutions.ca? its the best computer store in victoria, great prices and service.

AMD AthlonXP 2800+ 2.08GHz 512K 333FSB Socket A BOX Info $186.00

thats what i've been thinking of getting. i really just want it to last a couple years until the 64bit ones are the ''norm''.

doom 3 > hl2 bwahahahha!!!!!!!!!!!

Socket A is Socket A man. If it can support 333 front side bus, it can support mobile athlon. All a mobile Athlon is is an UNLOCKED desktop Barton.

LMAO!

Yes I have been sucked into the world of computer games to the point I barely play PS2 or XBox games at all.

I like
Deus Ex and Counter Strike, and the older Red Faction which I only just recently played...all that type of stuff...

I have also played other types of games such as Diablo II extensively, Neverwinter Nights (and all expansion paks) etc.
Then I have the lamer side of me which enjoys things like The Sims, RollerCoaster Tycoon, Age of Mythology type stuff, etc :P :P

Unfortuantly I do not know all the bells and whistles our computer has, but since my boyfriend is sooo utterly "into it" we have good stuff right now. And more than enough to play those games anyways

Marisa
Edit to add:
I am going to be LIVING in the new game Spiderman 2 BTW folks!!!!!!!

No actually I left that title out since I do not play Doom and I am not aware of what it takes to play :P....played the original a bit but nothing of the newer versions.

And it's nice you hate Spiderman 2, but I doubt you have a real reason why you hate it, since you only played it for five minutes....but wow sounds like you really must have tried it out! I on the other hand am 1/2 through the game on XBox and enjoy it a lot!

yeah see i don't get what people like about spiderman 2 so much. bad graphics and gameplay, the webslinging is pretty awful on manual. the graphics remind me of a bad ps2 game. but anyways, theres much better games than that on xbox, maybe you just haven't found them yet.

doom 3 > spider man 2 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'd love to hear your description of Spiderman 2's "bad graphics" and "gameplay"

Why exactly is the gameplay bad? Not only is it in Vice City style, but it has three times the amount of available "missions" including petty crime, and civilian crime which have no relation to moving the story forward, but serve to up your characters stats. As for manual web slinging, it couldn't be easier with a small amount of practice, I have TERRIBLE hand eye cordination and I got the hang of it within about 10 minutes.

As for graphics, I have YET to see a similar styled game with better graphics. The zoom in and out of the 3-D map alone is amazing and FAR more usable than Grand Theft Auto ever hoped to be.

As for there being better games for the XBOX of course there are, but considering Spiderman 2 is for all gaming consoles including the PC..... with DIFFERENT story lines for each format, I think they did amazingly well. I have played on both Xbox as well as the PC. And this weekend I am going to attempt to try out the PS2 version as well.

In either case, by your own admission you played SpiderMan 2 for five minutes so...........

i don't play cs.

marisa, gameplay doesn't mean the amount of stuff there is to do in the game, its more about how good the controls are, how fun the game is to play, stuff like that. for me spiderman wasn't fun AT ALL. seems like a waste of $50+ for anyone who bought it.

The new Doom trailers looks INSANE! Its actually been out for a while now, but it looks like they upped the res. of the video.

When Quake IV hits, then we'll separate the men from the boyz! LOL!

So, it's been out for a week.

Verdict?

I got it the day of release but have only had time to play it for a couple of hours. I'm loving it though. The gameplay is typically shallow for an id game, but more than makes up for it in gunplay and ambushes.

I think a remake of Resident Evil is due from the mod community With full freedom of movement.

Between that and Quake IV (by Raven this time) it's going to be a nice winter for playing cool mods.
