Bought Lost Planet today, now I'm hoping that my weak hardware is enough to run it properly. I'm bit doubtful but if not then I have to upgrade in near future because of Fallout 3 and Mirror's Edge.

So...
- Lost Planet (hopefully) EDIT : nope, it doesn't work :(
- Need For Speed Carbon
- Mount & Blade
- UnReal World
- Rayman series (I got 3 parts from that series and been playing them with my son)

Fallout 3. A surprisingly decent game, but with the usual Bethesda flaws of poor dialogue and random unprovoked crashes(seriously, have Bethesda even released ONE game that didn't crash randomly? jeez, lern2code, people!). Like it a lot, though, even if it's not "true" to the Fallout series.

Also, I'd like to try the Left 4 Dead demo... if Steam would ever let me and Asor connect to a game :P

What's wrong with the dialogue?

I did have an issue with old black dude from Megaton disappearing. Can't fix it since there's no console to teleport him to me. :(
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Spore is a bit of a let down :(

and by a bit, I mean a lot.

Like Zero Punctuation says here: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/218-Spore

you're really just better off playing each COMPLETE game that each of Spore's sections tries to imitate.

Well, what I like best is just flying around in the start area or stopping up and looking at the beautiful fantasy landscape and listening to the very much appropriate score. Judging by how much I like this, I suppose the producers have focused on the artistic and imaginative aspects, rather than on satiating the whiny needs of the spoiled gourmet gamer not predisposed to the magnificence of anything related to dragons.

Ka-Locked-and-destickified!

Also, Gears of War 2, HL2: Episode 1, and possibly a bit of Defcon. And Hitman: Blood Money, until I gave up running it on my rather crappy old computer (my new computer being ultra-slick, really awesome and awfully lacking in the graphics card area).
