I play Team Fortress 2 and a bit of DeathMatch Classic (Sadly most of the DMC servers have shut down now). I also occasionally play Unreal Tournament 2K4.

I never got into to Counter Strike.

yeah, xfire, yo can launch all the games you have installed, chat ingame, without the hassle to alt+tab and go on msn messenger or yahoo! and you can take screenshots, chat with your friends with mic, take video screenshots, and much more. Track what your friend is playing and everything! If i have convinced you enough and you have it or would like to get it, http://www.xfire.com

I have never played an MMO, RPG or otherwise, paying a monthly subscription to a game I don't know if I will have time to play never appealed to me. With TF2 UT2K4 and the like you can just play when you like, it dosn't matter if you don't play for a month (except that you will be out of practice).

@jonhill987
there's actually some mmorpgs that are free2play, like Pirate King Online or Tales of Pirates (same game, but i think one of them is an asian server). although, i only got to play around an hour of the game, let's just say i've gotten tired of mmorpg communities.

The only game I might want to play online is Chess (don't know if you saw my topic yesterday). But still need more information on how it works!

ah yes, I remember. I fear I never really had the opportunity to play the game much, odds are you could felt me (er, um, checkmate me) in 9 moves or less.

I don't do the online poker thing anymore .... I don't want to pay and the people who play the free games just go all in every hand .... not very fun.

Well, not exactly a youngster anymore Lighthouse, nearing primetime for a mid-life crisis in fact.

As for the poker, I play with a semi-regular group. The Tuesday night game is the best because it is a non-Hold'em game. In fact, if I remember correctly, tonight it's HORSE, and it's a bounty game too, good times good times (and not a bad bankroll builder either ;-).

@jack,
i havent yet ran crysis, but i'm sure if it will be ok, ( thats if i lower the GFx settings ) .
and by the way, i hae 2 GB of ram, and i really wanted to upgrade it to 4 GB,
but i have been told it's a waste..there isn't much difference!
is that true? or shall i get 4 GB RAM?

ok so what i've heard now is that vista 32-bit only goes up to 3gb so if you have 32-bit 3gb would be the max but with 64-bit the sky is the limit.

Hi All.

Just thought i'd add i suggest getting a x64 OS if you want to have more than 3 gig it doesn't get fully recognised on a x32 bit OS.
and i have heard crysis is REALLY good apprently you can kill people by throwing chickens at them :)

Death by chicken? That pwns! Are these thawed or frozen chickens, 'cause it makes a difference. The MythBusters demonstrated this in episode 14 with the chicken gun. Thawed birds go splat, but a frozen bird makes a neat hole in 12 panes of glass:

Yeah apprently if you use super strength ( or something or other ¬_¬ ) you can pick up a chicken and chuck it at them pretty much knocking them clean out :)

Anyone played TF2 since the new content came out? After the medic spam died down I got to play Gold Rush properly and it is probably the best map yet. I don't know about the new medic weapons yet as I haven't unlocked them (and doubt I will, some of those achievements seem imposable) but i have been killed by them.
