Well, I'm not gonna buy any games for a pretty good amount of time... Probably till summer or something. The reason is, I'm saving up for a GeForce2 MX, new Case and Power Supply, motherboard possibly, and some more RAM. So basically I'm gonna overhaul my comp, because of dumbasses at HP. According to PriceWatch, all these things total are going to put me in the 200 or so dollars range. Kinda makes me mad tho, cuz I won't be able to play Fallout: Tactics OR Black 'n White, unless I bum one of em off my friends . But most of them aren't into comp games... DAMN IT.

Just buy one and then save up a little longer. How about that?

I don't get money that often for one thing. And even if I did buy Black 'n White for Fallout:Tactics, both use 3D GFX, which means my system will overheat and freeze up randomly while playing. Plus my Vid Card is lagging behind current games... Like when I play Giants, all the textures have lines cutting through them and my FPS go to shit when there's more than one creature on the screen. And Giants is just the FIRST game of many to come using advanced graphics that I won't be able to handle.

Get the Geforce 3, it comes with a special supped up version of Giants. And seems to be able to do a lot of different things.

Got a PS2. It's a sweet system. Dynasty Warriors 2 is the best game I've played for it, followed by Summoner.

I don't like PS2, most of the games suck. There's maybe 5 good ones. And sure, I'll buy a GeForce3... If you give me 600 bux that is. No? Thought so. I'd rather spend my money on a MUCH lower costing card that gives me great performance on today's games, rather than games 2 years from now, which is what GeForce3 seems to be targetting. Wasn't GeForce2 debuted with Halo? The only game to utilize all its features? Well that game isn't even out yet... Nah, I'm not gonna buy a GeForce3. Waste o cash.

BTW, Giants is a pretty cool game. I thought it sucked at first, but once I got the hang of it it was pretty good. I like how the area you're in is huge, and you can just fly and jumpa round everywhere. The most fun though was zooming in on the Sea Reapers, and blastin' their heads off with the RPG . I'll probably buy that game in the summer when I have my new parts.

I don't buy many games at all. The latest one I've bought in SC was Half-Life, and that was last fall. Ahhh, so is the life of a struggling high-school student. *sigh*

But I can always download and play Megaman, so life is good.

Of course the first generation playstation 2 games arn't gonna be that great. Compare the first gen playstation 1 to the current playstation 1 games. Image what PS 2 gonna be like?

As for Giants, I didn't like the game...
until I played it! The game is soooo phat!
If you haven't Download the demo.

I got a PS2. It's great. Not only does it play all old PS games (even better than the Playstation itself did), but it also plays DVDs. Between TTT and DOA2 you have the choice of two of the best fighting games out there, and SSX is about the best sport game ever.

It has all kinds of good titles coming up too: MGS2, Silent Hill 2, RE Code Veronica Complete, the next several Final Fantasy games, etc...
