    You should get a console and play some games. But don't become an annoying fanboy like some people here like nvidiafreak and others.

    I'm back to bf2142 myself - loads of great servers still up - I quite like ut3 tbh but the lack of online severs shows that most of the community doesn't - why did this game flop so bad I wonder.....

    Well one of the reasons is that UT3 has far less content to begin with when compared to UT2004. Second the gameplay on UT2K4 seems better somehow.

    Yeah this one is created by the original developers who created the game and not the ones that made the 2 bad expansions. (Extraction point and Perseus mandate)

    i know what you guys mean as well there is not a lot coming this summer but there are a few gems i can't wait to play. First off Battlefield heroes might turn out to be decent and the best thing is you don't have to pay for it. Then also in august mercenaries 2 comes out, i am dying to play that game ever since i rented it on PS2 then proceeded to buy it i have loved it. It is kinda like a military grand theft auto. but other than that everything else comes out in the fall. The game i can't wait to play other than mercs 2 is fallout 3, i mean come on its from bethesda who did a great job on oblivion so fallout should rock. But yeah currently i hop between a few games to keep me going on the weekends.

    I currently play:

    TF2: A great game that is well balanced, colorful, fun and valve is creating unlocks now.

    BF2: I don't think this game will ever die, i bought it in 2005 and am still playing 3 years later.

    BF2142: Not as enjoyable as the BF2 but still fun for some sci-fi action

    Madden 08: Fun to play when bored, it sucks that they stopped making madden for PC.

    Yeah so that is about it summer is always a dry spell for games unlike for movies, so my advice go see a bunch of movies.

    k this may be a big post. 4give me :)

    Not a chance. I like consoles and all, but I'm a true pc fan. I would never in my lifetime try and play a shooter on a console, so there is no real worry. And I would definitely prefer to play gta on pc.. since I'm sure my rig will play it better than a console as well..

    Tell me about it.. I have it new in the box and every time I look at it I shed a small tear.. why did you have to do this to me epic, you bastards. Ruined my favorite shooter franchise of all time. now unreal is just junk.. I seriously HATE UT3.. its such a pile of $hit.. and I gave itevery chance. I played the beta for weeks hoping all of the crap would be addressed.. ff to now, and yeah.. its a pile.

    Wow good to hear! I was hoping for some feedback like that.. looks like I may be investing some time into it then. thanks for that!


    As for you guys that mentioned Battlefield, i have to admit I quite dislike the game. I've tried playing in the past but the whole game to me seems like a real $hit show. You spawn and if you don't get to a chopper or tank you're pretty much dead in the water.. lame. I found it quite boring tbh, so yeah that wouldn't really be the ticket.

    Here is a list to give an idea of the games I've playe and completed in the last little while:

    Lost Planet (got too good at online play, no challenge anymore)
    FEAR + expansions
    Stalker (found this one dreadfully boring and the hype around it is just silly IMO. don't even know how I made it to the end)
    All of the Tomb Raiders (i have been playing all of these since Sega :)
    CoD1,2,4
    Unreal2
    Unreal Tournament 99/2004
    Timeshift
    Fall of Liberty (this game really sucks.. )
    Diablo 1 + 2
    Sacred
    Oblivion
    Witcher
    Resident Evil (all of em.. love this series)
    Halflife (all of em)
    Quake (all of em)
    Doom (all of em)
    Painkiller
    Assassin's Creed (can't even play another moment of this bs. I have hay so far up my ass from how many viewpoints you have to dive off of..)

    I'm sure there are more.. but anyway, you get the idea. I can rip through games pretty quick, and I don't ever really replay them. I find I waste enough time going through them once.. and that once is enough.

    well thats good news. the screenshots look promising

    i am playing FEAR XP atm. i like it but would have more so had i played it right after i finished the first one for the first time......2 years ago lol

    i played the demo for the third one. didn't see much to it. read some really bad reviews.

    XP is ok so far i suppose. the AI act a little funny, though. and its easy as hell even on high difficulty. i mean so is FEAR but its only because i know every given situation. the AI in XP react slowly and just seem lethargic

    GTA IV is the worst game in the series by far. Its dull, lifeless and a waste of time. The new more "releastic" graphical style adds to the boredom I much prefered the brighter cartooner PS2 GTA games. The controls esspecially the PS3 are dredful driving with those pathetic excuse for triggers is crap and the sixaxis is about as useful as a quadraplegic in goal. The story is boring, its just about some stupid imagrant who thinks hes a gangster. The missions are boring, the whole aspect of taking people out to nightclubs and bars is tideous and again even more boring than the missions. Do your self a favor and buy Crackdown or even Saints Row both are better and more fun than the over hyped GTA IV.

    Finally someone else who also thinks Crackdown is better than GTA4 (not saying GTA4 is crap, just saying Crackdown is better :banana: ), saints row is worse IMO though :D .

    NEVAR!!!!!!!!

    I have a feeling even with a console I would get pretty bored.. considering I don't really play sports or racing games.. what else is there? I wouldn't buy a FPS on console.. which leaves what, only a handful of games really.

    yea same here, i'm pretty much done with pc gameing myself,only two games i am interested in this year and they are WSC real snooker 2008, and empires total war, i too am playing more playstation 3 games , formula 1 and of course all the football games(soccor to the yanks).

    racing games on a console are so much better than playing on a pc,plus sitting on a sofa in front of a 42" HD LCD tv makes gameing a far better experiance.

    i hate to admit it, but even tho i know pc gameing is not dead.......i do feel a little ripped off,with the lack of pc games compared to the amount of hardware we all have.......the only good thing about all this for me is.....i don't have to upgrade my rig anytime soon, as whats the point, i can play every game out there on what i have(hate FPS games so crisis is a no no anyway)and with the lack of titles for the pc, im quite happy to put pc gameing on the back burner.......

    i have over 200 purchased pc games and i have only ever finnished 5% of them , i even have the witcher which i purchased over two months ago and not even started, so you see im not in any rush.but i do feel sorry for the really hardcore pc gamer who has very little to choose from especialy after spending so much on hardware............i am lucky i love both pc and consoles.

    If all else fails just start playing EVE: Online, seriously you can waste a whole year playing that game. I however have learnt my lesson, far more addictive than smoking!

    Download the trial and see what you think
