And the game that may have rekindled my desire is: Pirates.

I fired up the xbox demo disk and launched the Pirates demo which was the ship to ship combat mini game.  I played it for almost an hour.  It was great fun and the trailer seems like a hoot.


What's the word from my fellow (again!) CGers?!

I'll have my review done this week, but for a short preview I think it's vastly entertaining with a friggin' huge "library" you can read about (some details of certain pirates I'd completely forgotten) and some quirks that I don't quite understand.

If it's anything like the PC version it will suck you in for a while, but then you'll feel that you need to divorce it within a month (my feelings).

Yay! I am just glad you found something to play. I agree that it is just sort of like candy-really sweet and yummy at first, but over too soon. It gets old very fast, but enjoy it while you can. Come back to gaming!

I rented this after reading so much praise for it, and I admit it was cute but not really the eye-catcher that I had hoped for.  The ship battles were fun, though.
