Anybody play S.T.A.L.K.E.R. yet? I picked it up Thurs nite. Only played it for about 45mins and didn't get a chance to try MP yet. My first impression is that it is ok so far. But I would have thought that being delayed for this many years it would be awesome right of the bat. Just my 2 cents

I've been hooked back on Homeworld 2 lately. My God does it look absolutely stunning.... I have also been playing alot of Starlancer lately on these long plane flights. I just wish it would support 1280X1024 resolution.

Yeah I played the Demo too, going to pick it up when it gets released on the 27th.
Yuri's Revenge is still my favorite to play out of the series though.

Only BF2 & some mods, I compare everything else to it and find them wanting.Guess thats why I'm stuck playing it, waiting for Forgotten Hope & Eve of Destruction.

I play mostly turn based strategy games and rpg adventure games, civilization, heroes of might and magic, broken sword series. I was an old kings quest fan from way back.
The reason I went on a video card buying spree last fall was because of Oblivion. :(
I bought a HIS x1950pro then asked my daughter if she wanted it for Xmas. Her response was "well duh.. of course I do"
Then I bought a sapphire x1950xt which was louder and more power hungry than the HIS one but less expensive. At least I can actually play any of the games I like now :)
I originally had a 9550 video card and it would not even start Oblivion.

What settings do you use for oblivion and what do you get for framerates? (~ tdt for the in-game display if you didn't already know).

Actually... I don't even have Oblivion installed right now due to a hd failure a couple months back. Lost my saves as well :(
It sucks because I was about 3/4 through. I haven't had the time or inclination to go through it all again. Soon I hope :)

I tried most settings maxed and had video 'clipping' in outdoor fights. Sorry I don't recall what the exact setting I tried where.
