    You know one thing I always wished you could do in Fallout, was be much more stealthy. Sort of like Thief, but not that easy.

    Like when you tried to take out someone in a town that you didn't like, and the whole town turned against you :lol:

    It would of been cool if you could of just assassinated people, without having to destroy a whole town 8)

    How do I submit a suggestion to Bethesda? I think this would be a good one.

    You can be stealthy in Fallout if you really want to. Stealth works pretty well in that Hub mission where you need to assassinate Mr. Hightower.

    It's good, but I never managed to finish it. You need to have a nack for driving games :/

    I have a nack for driving games, but the cars in mafia suck.


    Commandos is a strategy game. Thats like complaining that Half-life had no character development.

    Aye Welsh its very good. Superior in virtually every way to Grand Theft Auto, to which it is usually compared. The driving is annoying, but I suppose the underpowered cars are historically accurate.
    By now it should be in the bargain bins for around 10 dollars, so there is no reason not to play it.

    EDIT

    Deprived as I am of my Fallout CDs, I am currently replaying Sentinel Worlds 1 and the first X Com game.

    Yay for Kosaka's Guns R Us!

    Damn. Most of the gaming I do is replaying old games, so I really can't give a list of what I've replayed over the years.

    I can say, however, that I've replayed most of the good old adventure games more that once, which is a bit strange, considering how linear most of them are. I guess it's the great story a lot of them have, maybe combined with a bit of nostalgia.

    At the moment I'm replaying the Tex Murphy games, starting with Under A Killing Moon.

    Damn. So many games I've played 5+ times...

    Lately I've been playing Transport Tycoon and The Settlers 2.

    But you don't get get those cars until the end, or only in special missions. And Mafia is good. Complete knock-off of Goodfellas though.

    And I am trying to find a goood way of playing my old Tie Fighter and Xwing on my new PCI express PC. I pwned with a mouse instead of joystick!

    Yeah, your feeble console mind must have nearly burned out under the strain of attempting to play a driving game that isn't a shallow arcade shooter.

    Terra Nova: Strike Force Centauri
    Tribes 2
    Discworld
    Heroes of M&M

    those are the ones I have installed. When I'm done TNSFC I'm probably going to go back to Realms of the Haunting again.

    New old game I'm playing: People's General. It's a great old-school turn-based strategy game. I always play with communist China, of course. This afternoon I got my ass handed to me by my imperialist friend in the battle of Seul.

    Ratty-

    That looked like a lot of fun. Based on Panzer General series, right?

    Yeah. It's newer than Panzer General II, older than Panzer General 3D, and more difficult than both. The setting is something completely different - early 21st century, China and its North Korea reclaiming their 'alienated' territories, UN intervenes... interesting and almost frighteningly plausible.

    By the way, People's General is abandonware. You can find it at www.the-underdogs.org . It weighs only 64 MB.
