My System Specs


Crysis Wars and I'm about half way through Brothers in Arms: Hells highway. Crysis wars has many balancing issues but it'll do until some other multiplayer game catches my eye. Hells Highway has a great story but the graphics seem somewhat dated.

Looking forward to Farcry 2 and Dead Space.

Hm, lets see... the game i play most i guess is Flight simulator X, but then theres FSX, wich is a shorter way of saying flight simulator x an i play that one alot too, and I cant NOT mention flight simulator 10. That is just the BEST game out there, well... next to FSX... no, i think flight simulator X is a little better than both of those.... anyway, yeah... I guess i just play flight sim alot.
