Oh wow, I haven't fired that up in forever. I still have the community patched version installed with the better resolution.

Right now I am playing Castlevania Symphony of the Night on my 360 since my PS1 has been down for a while and I got the itch to play it again. Great game. Top ten best game ever candidate for sure.

I just brushed the dust off my old Warcraft III cd's and reinstalled. Finished the human campaign the other night and I'm almost done with the undead campaign. I guess next is orcs and it finishes with the elves. 2002? Graphics leave me wanting but it's still a good game.

I wish I could get my Warcraft 2 to work. Battlenet on that thing was my jam back when I was 15. Many a late night was had.
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

Heh. I still have Warcraft II Battle.net edition installed, disc still works too. Haven't played it in a long while but I can't bring myself to uninstall it. As for now, I'm back to EVE Online again. I play a bit of Torchlight and Titan Quest now and again too.

C&C RA 3 is one of the best put-together games I've ever played. The cut scenes are fantastic and they didn't hold back on the budget, hiring many well-known actors. The chicks are hot too. The gameplay is fantastic. Definitely a 10/10.

And the humor! Did I mention the humor? It alone is worth it. Funnier than a lot of comedy movies. Too bad they ditched the whole concept. Why would they do that?

It's EA?

Funnily enough, though, the guys responsible for the original made Universe at War. It's as far from the original concept as one can get and I just couldn't get into it. I never finished it, which was disappointing since it looked awesome.

I have been playing Darksiders off and one when I get time to play alone. I'm enjoying it so far. There's enough searching for items and artifacts that it has more to it than just the hack and slash fighting. The "finish" move adds a bit to coming across new enemies to see what War does. I'm thinking the sequel will interesting enough to buy playing as Death.
