remember also the DS will only link to a supported router with WEP (or no) encryption, which sorta compromises your security if you don't want to change the settings every time you want to go online with the DS - no WPA for you!

if you're using it just for word-processing purposes, why do you need Windows on it at all? with Linux, it'll be cheaper and might even run faster.

I can definitely get it to run, and it looks nice, it's just that I know it can look nicer, and that bugs me a bit.  Everything else I've put on this machine, I can max out.

and thus my machine upgrade has been delayed once again... maybe i'll wait for full-speed PS2 and Xbox emulation. haha

Even my old 3+ year old machine was running most recent games (Crysis excepted) at some level, even if I had to live with graphical compromises.

I ran Crysis just fine on my 5 year old machine! of course, the video card was upgraded a while back to an ATi X1600 and there were still visual compromises made, but it still looked ok.

i made my first game (a point-n-click adventure in the style of the LucasArts and Sierra titles) in Macromedia Director, which is now Flash. it really wasn't overly difficult. i can only imagine it's gotten easier now with the new abilities and tools available. i would recommend Fenix, but there's not so much tutorial information available in English.

Future Tactics: The Uprising [PS2]
712  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Future Tactics: The Uprising on: January 27, 2008, 10:00:59 AM
it came out at the $19.99 price point a few years ago, but i just finished it. as one review put it, it's a 'turn based shooter' (obviously created by a British studio - Zed Two - as evident in the art style and dialog). lite-tactical elements with an interesting implementation - in how each turn plays out, it shows how the 3D Worms games from Team 17 could* have been made more fun than they were.

shots are made with a mini-game style aiming system. characters can find upgrade (as well as first-aid) in the field, granting new abilities. surprisingly, the game has a decent deformable terrain system, destroyable structures and large objects that can be blasted with firearms and cause a great deal of bodily damage on impact with friend or foe. craters, buildings and the like can be used for cover, as the monsters use line-of-sight to find you. there's also a multiplayer hotseat mode, and you can create custom one-off battles.

there are downsides to being developed as a budget title. the art style is very simple. enemies can run into the water and drown, fall off cliffs or otherwise injure themselves for no good reason, but it happens infrequently enough that it's amusing to watch. some mission objectives are unclear, and you can't get an overview of the battlefield before you take your first turn of the match. although the story is mostly dull, usually silly and lacks potential, it doesn't get in the way of the game itself. the first few missions are quite difficult at first, as you are completely overpowered by the opposing forces and must survive any way you can.

you can find it second-hand for cheap on PS2 (the version i'm playing), GC, Xbox and (in Europe) Windows PC platforms. (and it's on the Xbox360 backwards-compatible list.)

good review with many screenshots here

>>To get on the way to the best ending, as well as a hell of a lot more content, you need to aquire both the gold and silver rings. 

don't have these...

>>The hardest to get is the silver ring in the upper left of the castle as you need the spike armor + mist to get it.

spike armor? i don't have that either.

i've been unable to get into the water areas - should i have found the 'underwater protection' thingee by this time?
