My favorite games: Armed Assault, Operation Flashpoint, Call of Duty series, The Sims series, Fable, BFME series, Battlefield Series, Roller coaster Tycoon series, Transport Tycoon (Oldie but a goody), World of Warcraft (Sorry blizzard, i use only private servers because im cheap) and most of all. Command and Conquer series
Athlon XP 3000+ 2.16ghz. 1.25 gigs of ram, Nvidia 6800, SOCKET A, AGP, horrible case.
I would update it, but i have no money. I have no job, i have no car. I could walk to work, but i live 20 fucking miles from a town. So im broke, and stuck playing old ass games. Once in a while i can play a good game, like Armed Assault, or STALKER, but other than that, everything else runs like shit. So lately ive been turning into a retro gamer, playing games like Freespace 2, Warzone 2100, and others. So destructioid, i ask you this: Got any old games that are must play, and at least tolerable to download on dial up if abandonware?
How many times have you heard that? Too many probably. Anyways, heres my reason. Today, i had a craving to play some Flight Simulator X, i installed it, but when i tried activating it, it said i had reached the activation limit for my key. So i called up tech support. I sat on hold for like 30 minutes just to talk to an Indian guy who then redirected me to someone else who had me say my product ID. I finally got the game working, but seriously. Why would Microsoft put a limit on activation. I understand it for discouraging piraters, but seriously, raise the limit to like 20-30. 2 is just too little.
Now, I'm not going to do a review on it, but i do want to ask this. Does anyone know of a good private server? I've been jumping around private servers for months now, and i can never seem to find a good one. Either they're unpopulated, too unreliable, or ultra low xp rates.
I got Armed Assault a few weeks ago from one of my close friends (Free and Legal, he bought the game for me). It is possibly *the* most realistic gaming experience I've ever had. With features such as a deep and detailed campaign with a ton of optional side missions, it had me playing it for long stretches of time. It also comes packed with a ton of drivable vehicles and usable weapons. As with most games, the teams are the US verses the SLA (A communist state with old cold war weapons). Vehicles include: Hummers, M1A1, M113's. Harriers, Ah-1, UH-60, AH-6. on the SLA side: UAZ, T-72's, BDRMs, BMP-2's, MI-17s, KA-50s, and much more. I recommend this game to ANYONE who's sick and tired of BF2's lame ass game play, and those who want to be challenged by AI. In this game you cant just go into a town or an area full of AI and just shoot everything. You're most likely going to get shot a few steps in. You need to plan things out and then execute them according to plan.
