Gaming ! (on the PC, of course)

until recently, I didnt know that the term gaming referred to gambling in general... I was shocked !!

but I, being the clean soul that I am.. 😎 , of course, referring to games on the computer....if there are any gamers around on CE... it will be great to have a shared library of games cds and dvds... since its impossible to buy 'em for most of us.. (at least the unemployed engineers..hehe..)

jokes aside (we really can share games, if anyone wants !!)... can we have some dedicated reviews of games on CE... not like the ones on IGN or gamespot...just plain simple things... to play or not to play will do...


these days I am mostly playing NFS Most wanted challenges... has anyone completed them all??

Yeah suyash, i completed NFS Most wanted challenge series and loved all of it. Great to know some1 on CE is interested in it too. But i bet there must be others as well. As far as i'm concerned, its my fav racing game.

thanks big K !!

to mahul : I totally agree with you, NFS Most Wanted is simply the best game in the racing genre, in fact I didn't like Carbon/ProStreet as compared to Most Wanted.
btw, let me know if you still have the game installed on your machine, cause I'm really stuck up big time on challenge #59 and #60 for quite some time... I'll be glad to mail you the save game file and hope you complete that race for me.. It will be a huge favour !!

please help me !!

to other gamers on CE : which other games are in vogue these days guys?
mahul
mahul • Mar 28, 2008
Sure, i do have the game installed on my pc. If u wd like me to complete challenge #59 and #60 for you, i would like to help you out, do mail me the savegame. I also have the totally complete save game, so i can mail it to you if u want that. And yeah, though the carbon graphics is awesome yet NFS MW is the best overall.
I love PC games! I'm into different sort of genres.. FPS, RTS, space sims, turned based strategies.

Anywayz, I plan to get a joystick soon, and will try to save up some cash to buy space sims 😀 I don't mind doing reviews on those!

I'm a bit old games guy, I like playstation 1 & 2 games

I've them as PS & PC games..

The most one is Driver series I LOVE IT!! I learnt car driving from this game It's the only cars game that simulates the real car perfectly, like when you hit some car with certain force not like hitting with higher force it doesn't cause the same damage & physical damage on the car itself & some great enviroments to drive in & exicting missions to accomplish, it's the most exciting car games series I've ever seen 😉

Friendster have u tried out Age of Mythology and Warcraft?? if not, do try them out, your opinions might undergo a change.

friendster7 • Mar 30, 2008
i have played age of mythology.but what it does is if we create few gods then we can easily defeat the nation.but in case of age of empire 2 the army play an important role.and the graphics is awesome too.

I've always wanted to play DRIVER series games, since car racing is one of my most fav genres..but still haven't had the luck to play them due to one or more reasons...

since you play on playstation, are you shifting gears up to ps3 then? 😎

I think one pretty interesting strategy game to try out is the Total War series. I guess its pretty realistic in terms of controlling an army!

By the way, for those interested in a free space combat simulation game (with battles between large capital ships), check this out: Freespace 2

It was a commercial game released in 1999, but the company later provided the source code. That means its free now 😀 There are some gaming communities who continued work on it by updating the graphics and sound. You can download it here: Hard Light Productions | News & Announcements

Friendster, check out the following games
1. starcraft (2 is also about to be released pretty soon)
2. warcraft (2,3,4)
3. aoe, aom
4. rise of nations
5. empire earth (1 and 2)
6. dune 2000 (if u r a fan of the dune series only)
7. command and conquer (all of them)
8. wesnoth (completely free game)
Sorry for the late reply, bro. Good list, Kidakaka!

C&C is one of the greatest series I've played. It brings nostalgia every time I play the original C&C, hehe. The prompts of "new construction options" and "insufficient funds", the little construction animations (especially the construction yard.. the MCV transforming to the building was just so awesome) etc.

I plan to get the Saitek Cyborg Evo joystick soon! Can't wait to play WC: Prophecy and Freespace 2 with it 😁
hey s
are you forgetting something. we missed our cup of tea...ya....i.e

COUNTER STRIKE

i think that this is the game which every engineer likes to play also there are several tournaments held in many colleges for this game. I and my collegemates play this game whole night.

Why Not!!

I guess I spend most of my time on my PC playing games 😛
But the list ain't very long as the duration, simply love playing Need for speed and the very populars FreeCell and Spider Solitaire 😁

I am playing Far cry right now. It's awesome game.
Previously I have played Counter strike,Project IGI, Project IGI 2, Hitman, Hitman 2, blood,Age of empires, rise of nations etc. etc.

I think so far playing Far cry is the best experience. After that, "Rise of nations" is also a good game, I enjoyed playing it alot.

Kedarjk, Have you played Half Life 1 & 2? You'll enjoy its story and gameplay 😀 The prices of the games would have dropped by now. Get the "Orange Box" compilation.. Half Life 2, Episode 1 & 2, Team Fortress 2 (multiplayer) and Portal 😀

Warcraft 4 - I meant Frozen Throne
I just played Codemaster's GRID last night at my friend's room. Totally AWESOME. Highly recommended for those playing racing games at the moment.
The Gears of War is also a very good game....everyone should take a taste of it.

Ithink i have spent half of my life in playing pc games and keeping it updated to meet the requirements for the latest games.but now i really think it is much harder to keep updating your pc.😔
last game i played was COD4 and i really admire the series of COD.
Just got "assassins creed" and "gears of war" installed
good to see Gamers here 😁
