revisiting old games
today i thought i might try out some old games which i have no played in a long while.

Ancient conquest, the thing is this version is in polish so i do not have a clue how to pass mission 4 after defeating the various enemies on that map and collecting all the artifacts.

Thief the dark project, on mission 7 on my way out of Constantine's building and saved until i resume it

Laser light, angles are deceptive and one hell of a game!.

wolfenstein 3d, exactly the same as dynasty of spear, very fun game.

transport tycoon, a president on the company profiles leaderboard and a huge chunk of different businesses, using maglev trains and super aircraft. starting out in africa-like map layout next.


any old games you have just play or thinking about playing?

Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds. Heard of it, could never find it. I'm thinking of re-installing my Bioshock so I could try mixing a few new plasmids together. I also wish my Uprising/Dark Reign/Armor Command/Total Anhilation were compatible with Vista. Oh, and I also wish I could find an Uprising 2 cd in Singapore.

I've heard of Transport Tycoon, but never really got into it. Is it fun?

can be if your willing to wait for your business to expand. their are a few variables which can also make you laugh, a light hearted attempt into creating a business manager game.

however i am unsure why you asked me if it is fun, you will need to find out yourself, i can not answer that for you :P.

I replay just about all of my old games every four or five years. I'm currently going through Descent 3 and will probably start playing System Shock 2 in co-op in a few days.

What is the issue with TA? I use XP but I've played many co-op games in that during the last few months.

If you get delayed like two weeks, tell me and I'd like to join in. I'm out of town this week and two or three days next week. :nervous:

Heh, I just finished the Mercenary expansion, myself.

Mind if I get in on that co-op game?

Well, last weekend I finally finished Dungeon Keeper for the first time, a good 10 years after I bought it.

Works fine on XP but crashes a lot on Vista, which is my OS.

I love that game.

HomeWorld2

:ick:

If you have to play Homeworld games, make it Homeworld 1 or Cataclysm.  HW2 was terrible.
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

its a trade off for me on homeworld series.
on homeworld 1 you got individual units you can move about, limited fuel and many random things going off like a computer ai accidentally stumbling across a derelict or computer ai salvaging one of your carriers and heavy cruisers. although it does get boring after a while.

cataclysm closes that down but the story line is not too good and is too easy.

homeworld 2 opens it up a slight bit or boredom, a few advanced camera movements, again not too good storyline, individual movement of units is limited however very powerful units and tactical usage is required such as get a few destryoers directly above the hiigaran battlecruiser to prevent the ion cannon from ripping a gaping hole in your fleet or get behind the vaygr battleship takes the engines then missile batteries out and destroy the ship from the rear, make sure to also keep taking the missile batteries out, in original homeworld their was none of that, all you needed was a big force directed at the mothership. in my opinion of course.

The first rings a bell, I actually have the second one lying around in my house somewhere. I think it was a pretty good game.

For what, all three or HW2? I played all three SP campaigns lots. I don't see whats so bad about it. Unless you don't like the "Hiigaran's are saviors of the universe" storyline.
