Online Gaming Frenzy

Postby Matt Darcy » Fri Feb 08, 2002 1:17 pm

Ladies and gents. I fancy playing some online games, I am board with playing with people in the USA and Germany, I want to play with people I "know" There fore I have put a server on the net to host an online game or "something" - it is quite powerfull so don't be shy. I would suggest something with many players available in 1 games, like Age of emipers II or Startrek Armada 1 or 2 ? empire earth, unreal (poor PC's can run untreal) I am open to suggestions

I will quite happily LRM you to death in Netmech - I used to be well into that game. See:http://www.adamantium.demon.co.uk/netmech/Haven't played for ages though. I doubt I could shoehorn Quake 2 back onto my machine; my on-line gaming mainstay has been Starcraft: Brood Wars for literally years now, because it's dead easy to play on-line and isn't massively resource intensive. It's out on bugdet, BTW. So I'd be game for that, although I'd have to admit I normally play with a team vs comps rather than vs humans. It'd be easy to set up a SFXB room and stuff on Battlenet too. Looks like it'll be a couple of weeks before I can start whooping ass in any new shiny games, and the Ethernet card on the new machine won't be getting used in anger either, so...

Looks like Andy is still stuck with 56K until cable or BT cable him up

Exactomundo. Unless I form the world's daftest W/LAN by getting a really long cable to someone else's machine! I did it with a view to the announcement that BT is going to be cutting the cost of broadband - although I'm not 100% sure what BT's definition of "broadband" is - presumably ADSL. Whether I could actually get it in my area would be another question of course... If the 3G rollout was going faster I imagine high speed wireless connections would be a good alternative, provided they did capped rates...

£2.99?! Well that's definitely one for my wish list - I played the original PC Battlezone and enjoyed it a lot, it'll be budget range as well. So let's see, that's Battlezone 2, Homeworld, Homeworld: Cataclysm, Half-Life, Independence War 1+2, Black and White, maybe Mechwarriors 3 and 4, and so the list goes on! Great thing is, a lot of games that will be "new" for me will be out on budget. Having waited this long for a new machine you'd think I could wait another 2 weeks but I'm getting seriously impatient now!
