The concept obviously doesn't offer great gameplay depth, and there are some nasty bugs (the technical type).
Well, I'll always carry with me the memory of the movie. <3

Mixed shower room scene!!

The rest of the film is pretty good too.

And to keep this post on-topic, I'm currently playing Broken Sword 2. It still isn't as good as the previous one, but it's fun enough, I guess.

It sure is an good movie, but that's something else. Something entirely else.

F.E.A.R. - Someone ought to leave their copy of the Ring alone
The story was kind of nice, but after seeing the Ring Girl concept handled better in other games (such as Dreamfall), it was a bit predictable and I didn't feel the horror was that well integrated into the story and gameplay (I'm spoiled by System Shock 2).

The Ring girl in Dreamfall was stupid, especially in the very end.
And F.E.A.R. wasn't scary, but there were a few pretty good semi-scares during the game.

Fear is shite as far as I got, and I couldn't take anymore Ring girls after I just finished Dreamfall.

Should play Fear and Dreamfall...

Anyway, Command & Conquer
Love the game. I remember playing the demo of the old DOS version when I was young. It had only three levels but I loved leaving one NOD structure and then building an entire base over the map. Since I got The First Decade I started playing again. Finished all GDI mission. Now on the mission before the last one on the NOD campaign.

I would recommend playing Dreamfall first. Ring girl there is a lot more interesting than in FEAR.
But hey, I'm a Dreamfall fanaticus

Burning as in copying illegal or in setting on fire?

For some reason when I read El's post I didn't even consider that he might have meant copying an illegal copy.

But Dreamfall was a great movie! I mean game. Let's settle for interactive movie

....anyway played Red Alert 2 and the expansion pack, Yuri's Revenge, recently.
Got Just Cause, I'm hearing mixed opinions but I hope it's enjoyable.
But first I'll need to clear up some gigs for the massive installation.

Let me know if Just Cause is worth it, from the screenshots/videoshots it didn't seem very attractive.

Still awaiting Alan Wake. I'm bored to death of all those GTA-series ripoffs.

Well, from 40 minutes of playing Just Cause I can see some faults and also some potential.
Appearantly it has great graphics, not that I can tell with my current system, so anyway I need to tune it down and it's a bit too choppy for my taste, but that's my fault I guess.
Besides that it's pretty much tropical GTA with some stunt guy. Something that I never liked about GTA is that the action doesn't feel very smooth. I always tried to avoid conflict because I knew I wouldn't be able to comfortably take out enemies like in Max Payne for instance.
Another thing that annoyed me in this game so far is that every enemy is just some block that's meant to take some bullets. I carefully aimed at some guard and shot at his head, and nothing! Just like shooting his leg or any other uncritical organ.

That's it for now, maybe after a while I'll appreciate more the unserious tone of the gameplay (that's probably there not on purpose).

The last game I tried to play was "Settlers II 10th Anniversary". But it just would not run...

Darwinia ~ getting the end now. Fun little action game with statergy elements. (not really a pure RTS, its more arcadey).
Certainly fantastic value for £6 (in virgin).
