bored and in need of a new game

Post by Mad_Goku » Mon Jul 23, 2007 1:02 pm

Any new games out there that are addicting and fun???

Once I get my main rig up and running again I'm going to need something to play.
I have and am tired of:
BF2
BF2142
C&C Tiberium Wars
Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Rainbow Six Vegas
CS: Source
Supreme Commander
World of Warcraft

I'm sure I have more, but that's the more current ones

What I would like, is for a new Worms game. Whatever happened to that? That was the most kick ass multiplayer game. I could play that for hours and never get sick of it!!!!!

Company of Heroes is a good RTS multiplayer game.
There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of animals Chuck Norris allows to live.

If you're into racing games at all, I would recommend Test Drive Unlimited, that's what I'm playing through now. It's pretty sweet because it blends singleplayer and multiplayer. If you don't know what its like, you can drive around (free roam) the 1000+ miles of road mapped out of the entire island of Oahu, Hawaii. The will be online racers driving around too that you can challenge and race with. If you just want to play the races/time trials with AI, you can just ignore the multiplayer guys and do only the single player stuff. The graphics are great and there are some awesome cars and motorcycles.

try Overlord, its fun for a while.

I've finished it and I enjoyed it. It was fun.

Also if you like racers (arcade) try Dirt. It's a bit short but fun.

Do you have a 360? The Darkness is a game I would suggest. Very enjoyable.

I've been wanting to buy CoH, but just haven't gotten around to it. I played the demo and liked it. But it's one of those games that I'm worried might be too easy.

No I don't have a 360...been trying to convince the wife to let me buy a ps3 since they are on a temporary price drop. I keep getting the "we'll see".

sup bro? long time, no chat.

Yeah, company of heroes is pretty fun, and I don't really like those kinds of games. We played it at a LAN the other night and I enjoyed it. let me know if you pick it up and we can hook up and play a bit.

COH is not easy when you play on the hard setting. this will come after you with a vengance. it is one of our favorite games around the homestead.

that kinda goes with most games though. Look at Supreme Commander, the game was hardly playable until the patch a couple months ago. After the patch the game rocked!

best games to buy coming or already out:

Crysis
World in conflict(not out)
Call of duty 4(not out)
Company of heroes
Dark messiah
Oblivion
Starcraft 2(not out till 2008!)
Medal of honor airborne(not out)
F.E.A.R
S.T.A.L.K.E.R

I would probal first buy oblivion then coh then wic.(wic isn't out yet or you can try the beta wich is pretty good)
Oblivion will take you along time to finish but it definently keeps me busy.

I bought CoH yesterday and played it a little bit. I haven't hit anything new as the parts I've played now are the parts I played in the demo.

I'm not a big fan of Oblivion, FEAR, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

There are a few games I'm waiting for to come out, but that doesn't fix the boredom now.

I have this game for my 360 and I love it. It really is fun and one of the best racing games I own. Its only like $30ish i think?

Ohh and S.T.A.L.K.E.R is really sweet as well

That would be me and if you are looking for a good game try out of Company of Heroes. PC Gamer gave it a 9.6 out of ten when it came out. That says alot, PC Gamer usually never gives a game that high of score. The best shooter right now would be FEAR or S.T.A.L.K.E.R. or you could wait for BIoshock. Hope this helps
