i've found i play very few new games anymore - i've been big on emulators for some years now, and lots of older stuff on PC and consoles.

also would like to bring your attention to the Pandora, which will be out soon. Smaller and tailored for games (and the spiritual successor to GamePark's GP2X):

Future Tactics: The Uprising [PS2]
733  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

I thought I'd link this issue as well. Just because so many have forgotten that Halo was originally destined for the Mac.

uhhh...
Spoiler for Hiden:
>>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?

maybe it's time to upgrade?  Tongue

oh, but i just did! a friend gave me her PSOne that she didn't need anymore, and i'm now using it... my original PlayStation was purchased from a garage sale for $20 (with a forgotten Tomb Raider 2 disc inside the drive) in 2001 and is starting to stutter and skip during movies/cinematics... as i think all the old ones do at some point.
743  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / anyone else currently playing PS1 games? on: December 16, 2007, 12:35:42 AM
...as nothing on my Dreamcast seems too appealing right now... 

i've been trying over the past year and a half to get all gold medals on the single races in Wipeout 3 - i'm about a third of the way through. :/  takes forever..

got the really crummy ending in Castlevania: Symphony of the night, and i can't figure out how to get past that...

meandering around in ChronoCross, - not sure what i'm doing and feeling like it's going to take about 80 more hours to complete this game.

and started Silent Hill last night, absolutely hating the controls.

got Syphon Filter on half.com for $0.75 plus shipping - excited to try that out.

i was totally looking forward to both games... but the UT3 demo looks not very good on my computer (and it won't apply the graphical settings properly), while the Crysis demo refuses to run at all.

752  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: RE4 Suggestions on: September 20, 2007, 05:17:18 AM
you might also have discovered, if you did not patch the game right away, that shader support is completely missing.  downloading the patch and enabling shaders will make the game *noticeably slower (like with STALKER) - hope your PC can handle it...
753  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hellgate: London - Elite or Pleb? on: September 19, 2007, 03:17:58 AM
if this becomes a trend in the future, it would make it very easy for me to save money by not buying games anymore..
