    I'm a big gamer for the PC. I don't play consoles much. Here's the current games I play. Some of them I haven't played in months but I still need to finish, some I play a few times a week.

    Battlefield 2
    Matrix Path of Neo
    True Crime: Streets of LA
    Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
    Riddick: Escape from Bloody Bay
    City of Villians (Account has been put on hold)
    Hoyale Casino 2006 (Hit the $1Billion cap without cheating)
    F.E.A.R (Just bought it off ebay, heard it's really good)
    Simpsons Hit and Run
    GTA: San Andreas


    Jeeze, listing all those games reminds me I need to finish them, most of them I have owned over a year and haven't got past the first few levels. My most popular game right now is Battlefield 2, played about 6-7 hours this week. It's addicting!

    I'm a gamer as well.

    World of Warcraft was my big game for awhile, but I just cancelled.

    How is City of Villians, Ryan? I've been wanting to test it out.

    Most of the people I game with all left City of Villians and went to World of Warcraft. I refuse to go over to WoW. I played the trial and didnt enjoy it. I just played some CS for the first time in about 3 years and I wasn't used to it and died way too many times. The engine is very nice, but can't stand the game.

    As for CoV, it really depends. I'm a Player Vs Player person. CoV is an expansion of City of Heroes which was a Player vs Environment for over a year, so the PvP is really unbalanced and not much too it. CoV could be great, but they released it 7 months shy so everyone I gamed with were waiting for 5 months for new content to be released as CoV came out half finished. They're supposed to come out with Issue 7 (The content) at the end of April, which is too long of a wait for me as I have been waiting since Oct for the content. Overall, the game is very good and well balanced. CoH has more content released for it, and I am hoping CoV gets the content is deserves. Just not worth my $15 a month right now, which is why I let my account expire yesterday. If they fix the game, I'll go back and so will the gaming guild I have been with for awhile will too. I used to play Star Wars Galaxies, and that was a great game until they started to change the entire game, and I lost over a years work on it overnight.

    If you want I can try and find a trial key for CoV to send to you. (I think I used mine up, but I can look)

    That's awesome Ryan. I'm a big PvPer as well, hence why I cancelled my WoW account. I moved over there from Dark Ages of Camelot actually, I loved that game for RvR and battlegrounds. WoW just plain sucked ass for PvP, even on the PvP servers *humph*

    I am DYING for Mythics, Warhammer to come out. I really liked most of DAoC and am really hoping they fix the class balance issues and whatnot with Warhammer. We'll see.

    Well, I'm waiting for Stargate Worlds to come out, but that is 2009 or so. A bunch of people in my guild are waiting for Pirates of the Burning Sea, which is supposed to be heavy on PvP and another one Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising.

    Just looked at the GaH website, looks like the updated it. Hopefully it comes out soon, but we've been talking about it for almost a year. I'm not into the whole pirate genre, but that has been delayed also.

    i'm addicted to lumines on my psp... as for anything else, just haven't had time for console or pc games (school, work, kids, husband, etc...) I guess that's why I play lumines on my psp cause it's portable...

    My husband is a big time gamer though...

    Ah, ok.

    F.E.A.R came today. Just installed it, I'll play it in a bit. The shipping cost more then the game!

    I guess we're the dorks of the dorks here, lol, but we've got gamecube, nin64, playstation 1, super nintendo, and atari all hooked up to our tv thru a switcher thing, with the controllers running under the carpet to behind the couch, and we can just grab a controller and go... we like the old skool stuff I guess, lol...
