    Seems like we have had several game or system questions pop up lately so let's start a good thread. Me and my wife are creeping upon 30 and still play. I have damn near every system since NES (would still have my Atari 2600 had it not bit the dust 15 years ago). If it ain't musclecars it's video games for me. With the 3 newer consoles on the market let's hear some of your favorites.

    As I type this on my laptop my wife is playing her new Gamecube. Luigi's Mansion looks pretty good makes me wonder what the system is capable of.

    i don't have a gamecube yet, but what really grabbed my attention is that you can use your game boy advance (nintendo's way of trying to get you to buy everything of theirs) as a controller for the game cube, and you can use the screen on the game boy to plan things, like football plays so your opponent doesn't see it on the tv screen. i thought that was really cool. i'd be definitely interested in getting one when mario kart comes out, my favorite game in the world.

    The Medal of Honor series coming out looks sweet. I always wanted a WWII simulation game. The previews say it is like being in Private Ryan in a first person view. This will be worth getting an xbox over, but we gotta wait til its spring release.

    Bah, XBox = New way for Willy G to take all your money.

    Seriously though, I've looked at the selection for the XBox and it leaves me lethargically uninspired. Not my kind of a system thus far. Plus the load times are slower than my old Saturn, which says something about that thing.

    For the time being I'm sticking with the Cube and Game Boy Advance. Plenty of decent titles out/coming for those two in the near future. If Microsuck wants me to buy the XBox they'll need to crank up the games coming and stop trying to pander to the computer gaming market.

    Laner, Mario Kart rules!

    SNM, I had Satutrn too. In fact I picked that over N64. What a mistake that was! But I wisened up, and I got N64 about a year ago. I just won Knockout Kings on ebay too. Anyone have that? Is it any good?

    I stuck this in another thread, just as it died, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried "bleem" which is s'posed to allow you to play PlayStation games on a PC.

    Anyone ever play Unreal Tournament? That's by far my favorite game for the PC. I saw they actually have it for the PS2, but I'm sure it's much more fun on the PC. Great game for those who like competitive first person shooter games, with a good amount of gore [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Try out Return to Castle Wolfenstein. It's really quite good!

    I think I read a few weeks back that bleem was going under. I could be wrong though, but I think I saw it on IGN.

    I hope all 3 consoles do well. My wife loves her cube, I my PS2 and possibly xbox. These WWII style games coming this spring look promising. The only problem with PC games is you always have to upgrade your system. Red Alert 2 kickass on the PC though. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Just walked in the door with the retail version, and about to check it out. Loved the demo/Test version. Its gonna have to be good to rip me away from Civ 3 for a few hours though [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Christmas must be coming. its been a pretty lean year for PC games. Now they all come out at once.

    Was amused by the pictures on the store wall of a man caught on security video stuffing a PS2 box down his trousers and trying to walk out the door. Theres some fucking morons around.

    You'll have to tell me how the single-player mode is, Goo. I'm still having a blast with the multi-player test. The toughest thing seems to be playing as an Axis engineer and trying to disarm the dynamite at the sea wall. Most of the fuckers on the team don't bother to support you at all, and you end up a bloody mess.

    Limecuda, download this and give it a try. You won't come any closer to a WW2 beach landing than this in a game.

    One thing about the medal of honour game thats been bought up as a possible major flaw is that it seems to be very much pre-scripted - thats not to say its not impressive looking is going to be a fatal flaw, but often games that feature HEAVY scripting and gorgeous graphics, end up falling well short of the mark in the gameplay stakes. I guess that one remains to be seen when its released.

    I remember plunking 50 cents into that first laser-disc game that came out in the arcades. Beautiful, but you had to tap the controller at the right time in the right way to get anywhere. What fun is that?
