Re: What do you play when your not playing Freespace 2?
lolno. It benches "island" at 26 fps 1024x600, mix of low and ultra via heavy tweaking, 0xAA, 8xAF. A few custom shaders here and there.

Hence, that's why it's still on my computer for tweaking purposes. I took many, many hours to get it to look/run as good as it does for a Mobility 3650 HD and P8600, and I like to think that there's more I can find/do with it. This game single-handedly taught me everything I know about common rendering effects/terms and their approximate performance cost.

What do I play when not playing FS2?

Far too many games to list. Though currently Mushihimesama and Disgaea are favorites. I'm also replaying .hack//GU whenever I have extended periods of time to do something (RPG's are time-wasters).

Starcraft 2
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!

Re: What do you play when your not playing Freespace 2?
i've lately been on a C&C crunch.  mostly 3 and generals: zh.  i WAS a fairly regular Combat Arms player, but it seems the designers are trying to deliberately make it unplayable.  every update makes it worse.
others include

Crysis (and Warhead)
Halo PC
Far Cry
FEAR (all of them)
Descent (all of them)
occasionally Lock On

I agree, but it takes to long to finish one game. >_<

You bastard.
I can play Crysis at slightly below highest settings. :nervous:

League of Legends
Thought I am pretty bad

Mass Effect2
Haven't tried the Vanguard class. Find it pretty bad so far but at its the first time my face looks somewhat good ^_^

Wing Commander 1 Kilrathi Saga edition
Sadly it runs just a bit to fast. Not so fast that its unplayable but fast enough that it becomes a "workout session" instead of fun !  Man I have build up some muscles since I played it again.

Future games to be played more regular:

Borderlands
At least I will play it again as soon as I got myself the Claptrap expansion

Fallout: New Vegas
Might drop ME2 in favor of this. I played through ME2 2 or 3 times allready ^_^)

Play a few weeks of HoN, then go back to LoL, you'll win almost every game ;\

Re: What do you play when your not playing Freespace 2?
Guess I can add another one to the list, since I finally picked up and finished Chrono Trigger (I'd left things right before the final boss fight for several months).  I'm not even an RPG fan per se, but it's easy to see why this game is considered one of the best ever made.  Now I get to go back and play through it again to see how many of the alternate endings I can track down. :D

Re: What do you play when your not playing Freespace 2?
I'll assume these are the fallback games, the ones you keep coming back to?
  • Civ II
  • Ace Combat Six
  • Total Annihilation
  • Journey Man Project Time Turbo/Buried in Time
  • Dawn of War
  • Rome Total War
  • Rainbow Six Vegas II

There are at least 12, not including similar ones with minor variations. I only found 5 of them without guides.

Have fun! :D

i've never played any C&C mods.  i did watch one of the uber C&C nerds at my high school play something one of them made for RA2 that involved sniper monkeys that could run across the map in something like half a second.  and all the maps were literally covered in ore, every last inch.
