    It's not really all that good anymore, but I doubt I will update it for a

    *tear. Macs make me sad - but I'm not going to convince anyone not to get one. They really aren't all that much better than PCs, just different.

    Still, not a bad setup, and I bet it was cheaper than mine :p.

    Currently enjoying my brand new computer (in-between the essay writing, a mans got to have some fun!) and it feels fantastic. Right now I´ve only played "S.T.A.L.K.E.R." on it, and it looks really amazing. This weekend will turn into one long gaming-marathon. :heh:

    I've got an 80 GB PS3... I'm too old for console games, but Blue Ray moviesare superior.

    PS3 only has two or three good games out of its entire library that are truly fantastic anyway.

    You should get the planet earth series on blu-ray. I heard it looked amazing.

    Is there anything worth playing on PSP at the moment? Me is a fan of RPGs mostly.

    Short answer no, long answer yes, if you don't mind playing Final Fantasy again. I believe they re-re-released four or five or something for PSP with updated graphics and good crap like that. Not really that great unless you're desperate for an RPG fix - I mean its solid, but not spectacular or "OMG BEST GAME EVAR" - but it'll get the job done. Even better if you can get it on the cheap.

    I don't know too much about PSP other than what I read though, because I don't own one. That's the best I can do, sorry.

    Thanks, DoC. I guess I'll stick to the emulation and whatever wonders it might bring in the future.

    These are bad times for RPGs on the PC. The two biggest hopes I had were that The Witcher and Hellgate: London would be great but looking at the tests I have read they seem to be buggy and monotonous.
    The next one coming out that should be really great is Dragon Age by Bioware and Bioware just doesn't produce bad games although the fact that EA bought them a few weeks ago could put an end to that I fear.

    Not monotonous, I dunno, reviews say somewhat that, but Hellgate is still fun for many (not trying it though), and it's about MMORPGs for PCs - single player is old news.

    That's the first time I hear about Dragon Age, what's more interesting is their MMORPG, which rumored to be set in the the Knights' of the Old Republic Universe. A must buy already (Star Wars and Bioware??? Fuck yeah!)

    BioWare makes the best RPGs on the market (single-player so far), I've ben on them since Baldur's Gate and till I lost interest :) Baldur's Gate is still the best ever... along with Fallout 2.

    I read about their MMORPG too and I hope it will be the first MMORPG I will like since I haven't been able to get into a single one yet. I didn't know it was set in the KOTOR universe but that would be awesome since I loved that game.
    I am also waiting for Fallout 3. It is made by the creators of The Elder Scrolls series so it shouldn't be too bad.
    Other games I am waiting for:
    Roma Surrectum 2 (a mod for Rome: Total War)
    The newest Piranha Bytes project (they made the Gothic series (similar to the Elder Scrolls series but smaller with more atmosphere) which is probably not well known outside of Germany)

    Games I am curious about:
    Alan Wake (by the makers of Max Payne 1 & 2)
    Assassin's Creed

    i already have the patch 1.12, and it seems that it is the most recent one. Now i started a new one (my old one was some messed up) and the problem is gone.

    Yes, but if you just started a new one I would recommend you also install the community patch since it solves many further bugs. You can read through the list of fixed bugs at the link I posted.
