Oh boy, here we go now... my pc spec are: amd3200+ Venice s939 single core cpu, single gpu (so no dual gpu on board, nor it is SLI) is Nvidia 7600GT, on board integrated realtek sound and, of course, I have no AGEIA PPU (pick-pocketing-u ;) ). So i downloaded and installed warmonger... took the most of time during installation to extract maps (i'm not expert, but i guess it is probably because of destructible environment, since they say you can almost completely level down the map with destruction, except some key elements such as map borders and objectives) and the it took a lot of time to precompile shaders.... then I got into game (offline tutorial), put every ingame option to minimum at resolution 640x480, tried to play a bit (it was indoor area and very, very choppy, low framerate)... and crashed to desktop with some warning about missing file... i tried offline multiplayer with bots: couldn't even spawn because of crash with the same message.... i don't dare to lag online with this since i have low framerate and crashes offline, so i uninstalled itso i guess you do need core2duo from intel and 7900 nvidia gpu at minimum to play (since i guess CPU compensates for the lack of PPU). If you have PPU beside those mentioned components, i believe you should be able to play the game... on high details probably... but i don't know... as far as i could see, game looks nice... and that would be first impression, hope to read some of your opinions if you can make it through this game and play :)

"Starsiege: Tribes (usually called Tribes or Tribes 1) is a sci-fi first-person shooter (FPS) computer game. It is the first of the Tribes video game series and follows the story from Earthsiege and Starsiege. It was developed by Dynamix and published by the company now known as Sierra Entertainment in 1998.

Tribes was one of the first online-only games of its kind and sported several multiplayer features that other games have only recently included (32+ player support, 128 players max, troop transport vehicles, several different player classes). Most of the standard maps were outdoors in a variety of climates, from sunshine to snow and hail. In general, bases were scattered throughout the map depending on the gametype. The outdoor environments were and still are relatively huge, extending for several kilometers in any direction, but "jetting" and "skiing" gave Tribes a fast-paced feel.

On July 16, 2007, Sierra Entertainment announced that they would cease online support of Tribes starting on August 16th, 2007. However, the master server was still active after this date. As of November 2007, the Sierra Master Server is no longer active. However the community has created their own. A Tribes installer is available Here that includes the game, all of the patches, and the updated Master Server."

To Install:
Download the Full Game and then the 1.8 patch.

UFO2000, a partially stand-alone free game inspired by X-COM: UFO Defence (or UFO: Enemy Unknown in Europe) its multiplayer only and it has loads of custom content. if you have the game files for X-COM or X-COM: Terror from the Deep, you can use them in the game.

the only bad thing is that it is often hard to find someone to play with if you don't plan ahead.

  • Link: Bootfighter Windom XP -sp2.NET
  • Forum Link: mirror moon's Bootfighter Forum
  • Description: This free Gundam clone offers surprisingly addicting gameplay and lets you indulge that fantasy you've always had ever since you saw your first Gundam anime. 3-D arenas pitting teams of mecha against each other makes the gameplay just like the Gundam Arcade game in Japan, which is similar to Armored Core and Virtual On, but you don't have to blow 100 yen each time you want to play.

    Well, it's a great game, and I thought I'd spread it around...

Woo, great find Jager. I was about to list Doom Rougelike as a freeware game. I'll edit this post later when Im on my laptop, but its a neat lil' game. Tough as hell though if you're new to the genre.

[EDIT]
Off the topic of Doom Rougelike, I found that Psi-Ops is free to download off of Filefront. From what I hear, its a very solid game (for a 'budget' title). Most of you probably remember it being off of the PS2 and such. Its a 3rd person shooter, with the ability to use various psionic powers to splatter people. Squee.

I would just like to say, Nexon released a new game called Combat Arms. Videos look like some Warrock or something but a LOT better...

You can download the pre-op beta here: Combatarms.nexon.net

Rising-eagle.com

Stumbled across this while looking at Wiki's freeware article. It looks like the bastard child of Tribes and Crysis, but I have yet to play it. I'll get around to editing this post to make it more fanciful and whatnot. Also, as promised...

Doom Roguelike ]
     - Link: Doom.chaosforge.org
     - Forums: Forum.chaosforge.org
     - Description: Its Doom, 'cept in full ASCII! Doom Roguelike follows the same formula as classic roguelikes of the past, right down to the graphics it employs and the dungeons you can loot. Featuring all the original Doom monsters, weapons, and pickups (as well as some new ones), it proves to be a refreshing and niche experience in today's market of high-end games. There's just an addicting nature about blasting away at textual critters, seeing the blood splatters represented by red-colored characters, and then looting their corpses of any worthwhile possessions. The forums are very active as well, and are helpful (last I checked). For me, the game was (and still is when I play it) fun, and the tried and true presentation is...well, what it is.

1 game I would like to add to the list:

Starpeace Online:
Short genre description: MMO Business Simulation

In Starpeace Online you have to manage a company. You start out with $100.000.000 and have to start a profitable company with that amount. You can research industries, services, commerces and other things. You need to level up, because not everything is available right from the beginning.
The game is basically open-ended, but there is a goal of ascension. If you ascend, you may place a monument on the map which can't be removed.
You can pursue a business-direction, but could also do politics. There are major and presidential jobs which need to be filled. This adds another layer to the game.

This game is pretty detailed gameplay-wise, and will keep you busy for some time. It has low graphics quality though.

Site: Starpeaceonline.com

Check out the site of you want to know more!

Cheeers,

Hrm, apparently Gore is free to download and play as of July 4th. Never played the game personally, but it might be worth a look. According to the wiki article, the version that was released was amped up by the developers. I'll give it a check later.

Ever heard of almighty DWARF FORTRESS?

People who play it say it's brilliant if you manage to learn to play it. And probably fortressfulls of dwarves will die before you finally get it right. Supposedly it has a long and steep learning curve. Watch out for giant ants who think of dwarves as quick snack.

This will help ya: Dwarffortresswiki.net

And this game will probably be loved by oldschool gamers. *hint-hint* *nudge-nudge* *lei* *lei*
