Mmmm Civ3 till the wee hours for me... I'm a terrible person. I'm thinking Rebellion (Supremacy for the Brits [a Star Wars game {back when they were good}]) is up next, or possibly Tropico... best soundtrack ever.

Besides Jets 'n' Guns, of course... But now that someone mentions it, maybe i should go play that again on a higher level...

Hey happy birthday dude? How old are ya now? 87?
Bateman: :o HERETIC! good luck for the exams, I'll forget to mention it later.

What? I said I've played JnG! It's a start, isn't it? Although the game was quite short. Maybe I should pick up WoW again.
And for the exams, they are in August, but... thanks.

I've also played a bit of Total Annihilation with my friend (sure, it's old (1997), but it's one of the absolutely best RTSs out there...

Damn true! Need to actually finish the campaigns properly instead of just skipping to the last missions for both...  TA and Heroes 2 probably could do with another dust down, although H3 is doing just fine atm.

Guild Wars. Anyone else playing? If you are, and have a /roleplaying/ name, join Turtle and I in Sinistrals because being evil is l33t, right? My primary character's name is Krilana Nereth if you want to contact me.

Total Annihilation. Endless LAN fun.

C&C Tiberian Dawn/Red Alert. Emulating serial over TCP/IP so we can have LAN again, more endless fun.

I'm playing Phantom Dust on Xbox Live quite a bit.

Also playing some StarWars Galaxies again since some friends decided to try it after that huge Combat Upgrade patch. They totally revamped the professions and combat, totally different game (and thank god). It's actually somewhat fun now :)

Still dabble in WoW, but mainly to log on and check mail at this point.

Like I said, I plan to own Guild Wars in maybe a week or so if I'm lucky...

I've heard mixed reviews, and I participated in the original e3 preview event, so hopefully it's everything it should be

Also: Gothic <3

I've been mapping for Goldeneye Source (an HL2 modification)

note: these are alpha builds and are missing a lot of props so they may seem bare in some areas

Facility

noclipping through the air doesn't draw the props/models/entities so this shot seems really bare.

Control


There will be 2 big window things in the ceiling here later. For now there is just 2 floating out-of-place light for seeing purposes

this one is slightly old. The current version has a blueish tint.

Scythe, you should come join Ankle and I in Guild Wars.  I personally got really bored in the E3 event and figured the game would suck...  Now I can't stop playing :o

My main is Atelar Medais.  Contact me or suffer.  Or both.

Wow, those are damn good creations Vortex! Must've taken a while

I should play Guild Wars (if I could ever peel myself away from Warcraft), but from what I've heard of it, it sounds less an MMO and more like Phantasy Star Online - where you meet people in one area then move into a personal copy of a area, which is not MMO in my eyes.
Plus, by paying monthly subscription you are giving Blizzard workers their wages so they will keep improving the game. Whereas without a subscription, Guild Wars will most likely slow down as its limits are used up and nothing is improve because they do not have the money to do so.
I will try it one day though. As I will try Lineage II one day. And FFXI... ... One day

Looking good Vortex!

I've also been busy with a HL2-mod called D.e.a.d, doing models, skins and all kinds of sheit.
http://www.deadmod.com/ for more info.

Otherwise i'm having daily intercourse with my lovely PSP, playing illumines and Metal Gear Acid. They both rock.
