View Full Version : I need a new game
March 7, 2004, 08:59 PM
Can anyone please recommend a good game for me to play? like a good RPG or RTS? it has to be a new one cause I gone through WC3, the last game I was playing was Dungeon Seige expansion, and I'm tired of leveling up my character.
By the way, Xenocrates and GodKid...am I suppose to know you? I haven't logged on for a long time but from previous threads you said you played CS with us before.

So you say you are tired of the ones you are currently playing... why? Can you play Counter Strike? Right now I know of 2 Jamaican based CS Servers that you can connect to.

Q, you need to check out this game: http://www.desertratsgame.com/
It's called "Desert Rats Vs. Africa Korps". It's based on the engine for S.W.I.N.E. and made by the same people who made Platoon. If you haven't played S.W.I.N.E., you don't know what you're missing. It is by far the BEST looking RTS out there (until this game comes out on March 23rd). Yes, even better looking than WC3. The game is so good looking that playing it is like watching war footage live on television. The physics and environment models have been designed to reflect real world scenarios down to the bolt.
The game is one of those few RTS titles that do away with the harvesting/camp building concept. So you don't start the game by building resources or what not. Your team is dropped at the mission point and you process to kick *****. You start out with some cash, and based on how much you got, you can purchase units that you need to start the next campaign. Your performance in each mission determines how much cash you come out with at mission's end. All of the other traditional RTS elements are there.
But let it be known that the game is as drop dead gorgeous as it is HARD... But knowing you, that's good news.

Matronyx: I'm very tired of CS been playing that for 3 years....although I havent played it in the last year, I rather play AAO than CS now.

Xenocrates who are you ? how you know I'm Q? I'll give your recommendation a try.

March 8, 2004, 11:41 AM

TinGirl, Will u marry me???? ;D ;D

Q, I'm a close friend of CyVan's. You've seen me @ the office many, many times. Usually when I'm there I'm exchanging laughs with Wun, Rick & Cyv. But you never talk to me. Ever. There was one point where I swore u were mute. ;D (nah I'm kidding). But you were awfully quiet whenever I was around. (or maybe you were just awfully quiet - period).
BUT ...I've seen how you play. You play a MEAN CS. Terrifying even... I'd get chills watching u, Wun & Danny take people down like flies in a gas chamber. U've got unnaturally brilliant hand-to-eye co-ordination. Practically frightening accuracy... That's why when CyV finally upped you in the ranks, it was true cause for celebration. ;D
I think it'd be great to arrange a deathmatch between you and our local TechJamaica champions, Matronyx and Devnull. I'm sure they will be just as startled at your obscenely brilliant skill - that is, if you still got it ;). In fact, I don't think any of the gamers here know skill like yours (aside from myself, CyV & GK).
I can't forget those yelps when we went up against you & Wun in CS. "IT's Q! Ruuuuuuuuuuuuun!!!!".....LOL -
Damn I was scared to play CS with you folks. It was almost unfair...
Those days were wicked fun tho'! ;D
GodKid was one of the folks that regularly dialled in to get some action when u folks got a T1 phone-line hunter. BTW, is that service still active?
Mitchie - Easy yuself nuh yute! ::) Bwoy iah.... no wonder few females come here.... ::) Dah yute ya star... :D

Xenocrates: Oh I know who you are now...I think...I wouldnt think I'm that good as you describe, ;) but I do have good hand eye cordinations though (I used to play pool tournaments too). Long time I don't play CS now ..about a year so I don't think I'm good anymore, I would have to practice about a week to get it back. The T1 service is no longer there. We try bring back CS the other day but after one day we got tired of it already. I really missed those CS days, play CS from 10 in the morning til 4 next morning. TinFury plays AAO now. Prik plays Colin McRae3. For the past couple of months we 3 were playing Dungeon Siege expansion trying to level our characters like mad. I saw that game you were telling me...but I don't like War games. I don't like World Wars, games and movie wise. I'm getting Spellforce right now, hope it's good. So do you know what Cyvan been playing recently?
By the way, I'm not quiet just towards you...I don't really talk alot period only sometimes I'll talk nuff. TinFury thinks that I'm anti social sometimes.

Hey, hail up TinFury & Prik 4 me - that is if they still remember me. It was I who had set you folks up on a killer FTP site one long time ago. You folks got a truck load of stuff through that ends. I remember you guys literally raping the site with your über-fast ADSL connection and running out of hard drive space on a daily basis....
...and then Wun & Rick had this amazing ability to bring dead drives back to life just to store more stuff... Man, that was wicked awesome. ;D
CyV is on the site y'know! He does a lot of reading, and little posting. He seems to love the lurking ting. CyV is mostly into the flight sims and a little CS now and again. I guess I'm in a very similar position as yourself as there are few games coming out that I'm looking forward to. I've since moved on to Console gaming for XBOX and PS2. There are few PC games out there that are impressing me these days.
If Ricky hasn't signed up yet, tell that lazy azzed bum to git signed up. Hasn't he heard that Collin McRae Rally 4 is coming out?! (or rather, has come out!)
CyV would flip if he heard (knowing him, he already knows).
Also Q, have you tried Rainbow Six 3?!?!
The game is WICKED!!! :o :o
