    I just bought SOF:2.
    I also own Q3 and UT.

    Hitman, how is RtCW multiplayer? I really like SOF's multiplayer, but some of the maps suck. They're always the same thing.

    Thanks,
    Draft

    Can this be right? No one here plays Stronghold? When I bought my mac that's the one game I made sure I would be able to play!

    Otherwise I've also bought:

    Oni
    4x4 Evolution (doesn't work, so I can only presume it's no good)
    Heroes of Might and Magic III
    CivII

    But then, I'm not so big on gaming (obviously).:rolleyes:

    Two words:

    Holy ****.

    I deleted my TO install just to make room for extra maps. The MP is to die for with varied maps and goals. They have a beach assault, an airbase level, a u-boot bunker level, etc. The weapons and classes are balanced. Team play is essential if you want to survive and win. You follow the lieutants and call for medics and you make sure your team-mates guard key objectives, i.e. blast spots for the dynamite. Oh yeah, there are engineers too. Your commanders can even call in airstrikes if you are pinned down by a machinegunner.

    During the summer when I was not playing TO, I would stay up to the wee hours of the morning playing the Beach level over and over and over and...well..you get the point. It never got old the entire 6 months it was on my HD.

    I deleted it from my computer at the beginning of the fall semester, because I was worried it would eat up too much of my free time....just like TO had. ;)

    Icewind Dale is good, but it is more hack and slash.

    Games I bought this year:

    Halo
    Madden 2003
    TimeSplitters 2

    Yes, I bought an XBOX, and I like it. The graphics are superior to any other console out there. This is actually a good thing because it will get SONY off it's arse and force them to make the PS3 much higher quality than the PS2, sicne Nintendo can't take on SONY in this area. Nintendo is becoming to the console gaming market what the Mac is to the desktop computer world.

    I would gladly not even own a console if it weren't for the fact that my Titanium PowerBook has none other than an ATI Rage 128 Mobility 8MB GPU in it.

    Tropico, CivIII, and Links 2002 CE.

    Removed the first two to make room for the latter.

    Have Marathon 1-3 (Trilogy Box; bought for my antique 6100/66 back in the mid-90's) and the Rubicon scenario under os9.

    Also have various Masque slot games under os9.

    I downloaded that nifty Alchemy game on my .MAC account.

    Just got Myst: Exile, but haven't installed it due to space limitations. (Hmmm... maybe if I stick the osX Developer Tools on my 30gb external...)

    Waaaaay too many PC games to mention, though if yer into Age of Empires, there's a really great clone called Cossacks (an add-on pack is out, as well). One of my fave fave fave games ever. (It could probably work under Virtual PC.)

    Only one new game this year, WCIII.

    I also one Q3, Oni and Black & White. Those three and Dark Castle are the only games I've ever completed (and I'm nearing the end of WCIII).

    Not huge on the computer games as I'm sure you can tell :)
