    Hey anyone play Topspin 2 on Xbox Live? I don't, but when I go back to school, my friend who lives in the same dorm as me should have Xbox 360, and I don't mind paying for Xbox Live so...

    Oh c'mon! That barely ever happens! I like it cause I like the concept of RTS war games but I definitely cannot do them in real time so Civ is a nice compromise. Getting nuked is definitely no stress reliever though...

    I recently revived an old copy of Unreal by playing on the "SnipersParadise" servers. (website: snipersparadise dot net)
    New maps, weapons, gameplay.
    Before that, I thought I had completely kicked my First Person Shooter habit.

    Are you talking about the original Unreal? I didn't even know they had servers for that any more. Well they still have Q2 and Quakeworld servers last time I checked, so anything is possible.

    Barely my A**!!!! I conquered the original Civ with catapults!!!!! The 2nd Civ was and still is very good IMO, it introduced hit point system to fix this problem. However, it was not developed by Sid Meier. Civ III was developed by Sid Meier which the same problem surface again. Freaky spearmen (whatever their name was) poked at my riflemen or tanks and they die, they all die. Tanks blew up beause of spears poke at them!!!??

    I am not saying it is a bad game, but this get me mad everytime, so mad I stopped playing it. I felt like my computer was having more fun than me.

    You must just have horrid luck then, because it's happened to me maybe once or twice in Civ III.

    But yeah...Civ games should have stuff like that be an autowin for the more technologically advanced unit. Like archers should be able to take out musketeers and stuff and riflemen I guess, but NOT infantry, tanks, etc...

    Yep, I didn't know either, but my friend told me about www.snipersparadise.net. Next thing I know, I'm going to work in the morning, bleary-eyed, from starting at my trinitron all night!

    Check out the "sniper" server, if you get a chance... they also have a "run and gun" server for people who prefer running around to sneaking and sniping.

    Might not have a special box art. But I remember the manual was hundreds of pages with full color gloss painting of WWI planes. I am still sad I sold this game to my friend more than 10yrs ago.

    That's a nice one. I greatly prefer the box arts of the late 80s early 90s.

    agree with you, but disagree on the stress relieving. it is more stressful to play games online, unless I just wanna spend time having fun without thinking.
    But after some time of gaming, I feel more tired and BRAIN DEAD: the reason I stopped gaming.

    On the contrary, after playing tennis, I feel more refreshed and feel better.

    For any Wing Commander Fans out their, GameTap has added Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom on their Coming Soon list.
    Game play wise it is not as good as Wing Commander II: The Heart of The Tiger, does have a bit of a better story, and acting.

    Also thanks to those that have posted some of their favorite box art.

    I'm currently playing Wii Sports & Twilight Princess. The Wii is incredible.

    EDIT: I think Prince of Persia: Warrior Within has the best cover art.

    One of the best boxing game, great 3D animation in 1991
    http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/4-d-boxing

    IMO, very decent tennis game for its time, plus you can play against the player you created after he/she retired.
    http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/4d-sports-tennis

    Best hockey game bar none. The AI and feel is still better than the modern games by EA. I still run it from time to time to just look at the dots moving around and around, fun.

    Me and my buds used to always play timesplitters 2 on the gamecube. Damn, it was fun. So many characters and stuff, like monkeys, calamari, cooks, aliens. We would have these team matches of 4 vs. like, 20 computers. First to 1000 kills....

    I used to play a 2d space shoot'em up called Subspace -> Continuum. Unfortunately my game zone Starwars is now dead.

    I've been playing the wii, games Resident Evil 4 + Godfather Blackhand. Completed both main mission and just have the submissions to finish. Have metriod echos + new zelda, animal crossing to play.

    Still playing the old classics, Master of Orion, Master of Magic. Bit of Galactic Civ2.

    Q6600? Guessing it is since that is the hot item these days. What are the final specs of your rig? It's looking very nice!:D
