Waiting for Sid Meier's Pirates! to be released 'sometime' this year, at present.

Gaming? A bit of Nanosaur or THPS4 on my eMac, the kids SIM like mad on the eMac and do a bit of Crash Bandicoot (various versions) on the PS1

Music, now there's a "playing" of a different and altogether better kind... Stevie Ray Vaugh
Led Zep
Kilroy de Geek

6th July 2004, 09:51 AM
iMac - Carmageddon (I'm not much of a gamer, and this is an oldie, but still a goodie, and its a good way to work off road rage! :ph34r: )

6th July 2004, 01:28 PM
MegaDrive - Urban Strike
Snes - FFVI (emulated, anyone got the cart for this game?)
PSX - FFVII - best game *EVER*
PS2 - GT3 (waiting for GT4)
Mac - UT2k4 (not as good as the original tho.)

6th July 2004, 09:31 PM
Bad news on Pirates...may slip to '05 if the rumours are true (sorry.) And no I haventt seen a FFVI cart, but have seen FFV. And no, she won't sell. And GT4 looks like blowing every other driving game away - played Prologue yet?
Good spread of titles here, and platforms too.
Come on lurkers, post! ;)

6th July 2004, 10:22 PM

No not yet, I am going to have to grab a copy one of these days. I heard somewhere that logitech will be releasing a new wheel specifically for GT4, to be boxed and sold with!

7th July 2004, 03:34 AM
these are the games that i play pretty strtange combonation huh :P

PC- ffxi and halo
ps2- ddrmax2
xbox- halo

8th July 2004, 09:47 AM
RC Helicopter
GliderPro (hours of entertainment)
The Day of th Tenticle
Sam & Max - Hit the Road
SimCity2000 - It came on one floppy. the other one was all the scenarios.

Battlefield 1942 - this game still rocks.
Battlefield Vietnam - where are those damn gooks?
Need for Speed - Underground - I have an addiction that the Nissan Patrol will never fullfill.

Would really like to hear from people that have got PSX and PS2 (if there is one that works) emulators out there for OS X. Oh! how I would love to be playing Gran Turismo 1/2/3 on the iBook.


8th July 2004, 10:37 AM
PC - Was playing Far CRY for ages (before this Call of Duty)
PS2 - GTA VC (which I spent 6 months playing then moved houses and not played it in the last 12 months) although I do tend to power it up and have a go every so often

I wish I bought an XBOX instead of PS2. Ah well, if I can get rid of the PS2 eventually I might buy a XBOX

8th July 2004, 07:53 PM
The argon: The wheel is already out, and it rocks! 2.5 turns lock to lock. And yes, if GT3 is anything to go by there will be a bundle, but I havent seen anything yet. iodine keep that PS2, GT4 and San Andreas are well worth the wait. San Andreas is 6 times bigger than Vice City in play area, and has taken over 650 hours to finish in beta testing! Funk me! And you can ride chopper pushbikes!!!! ;)
But the 200 dollar wintel box, ahem, Xbox isn't too bad at all. Still playing Full Spec Warrior mainly atm, but played galaga on macmame for a good 2 hours at the laundrette last night! (and got some funny looks too!)
Game on!

19th July 2004, 03:54 PM
God I love Vivendi...got a pre-release copy of Riddick on Xbox on Friday. It is the best looking console game I have ever seen! No lie. And it's a well above average FPS to boot!
Now, if my iBook wasn't scratching cd's, life would be awesome!
Game on!

19th July 2004, 07:51 PM
