What the heck was that?

P.S. I went on a search for Koronis Rift, and found a recent remake. That's where I'll be for a while!

I've been spending lots of time (other than brewing and work), playing Baldur's Gate II. I've just beat it, and now I'm trying Icewind Dale. I've heard many great things about Neverwinter Nights, so I'll probably try that next. I've never played them multiplayer online, but it is possible, and sounds like fun.

I'm cheap and like to wait several years until the games are marked down before buying them (ebay, amazon, thrift store, etc). Besides, with games like these, it might take me a whole year to finish them. Civilization II was excellent, even for me playing last year!

A friend of mine is trying to get me into multiplayer Mech Warrior 4. I'll try it out, but I'm more into the "thinking" games of strategy and less tactical "guns blazing", which is what MW4 sounds like.

FIFA 2006 (soccer, for those of you scratching your head) is fun as well and easier to find a stopping point than the ones listed above.

I've got to get the gaming out of my system before my son gets old enough to know what I'm doing and start copying me. My wife will never forgive me

Wow, cool retro video games. They're all free, too.

When I saw someone was playing Koronis Rift, I did a search and found all these old C=64 games you could play on your PC.

Enjoy!

There's also a few hidden gems here (including Koronis Rift, Ghostbusters, Project Firestart, and other C=64 classics.)

HAHA. The only thing that would make that better is if the dog was wearing goggles or one of those 1940 red baron pilot helmets.

I've been a PC gamer forever, startingwith 'Adventure' and 'Hunt the Wumpus' (on cartridges!) on my old TI-99.

Now I'm addicted to WoW, the first MMO to really suck me in. Started playing right after my daughter was born about 16 months ago, when taking care of her meant staying up at night so I could feed and change her every 3 hours while SWMBO slept. My shift would end around 3am. I'm a nightowl, so it worked out great for us.
I also tried DND online when it came out, but it bored me so much I never even played out my free month that came with it. And considering I was a pen and paper D&D player for something like 25 years, thats not good!.
I'm also looking forward to NWN2, loved the first one.
For you guys looking for old-time games check out the Home of the Underdogs
www.the-underdogs.info
they offer old games and manuals for download, all games that are no longer in production, and focusing on games they feel did not get the recognition they deserved at the time. It may not be 100% legal in all cases, but if they find out a game is being sold in any way (besides used) they pull it.
WoW players, I'm mostly Toecutter on the Spirestone server (Horde), come join our crappy little guild, The Warsong Legion
