    Me and my colleagues are really into online gaming. How about you? :confused:

    Hello,

    Not at all, I like to keep my PC clean from "strange" stuff.
    I am running LINUX.

    Bertus -- some would say that Linux is strange enough! ;D

    There are some people here at work that are into OLG, but I get enough of a charge out of various Solitaire games. I visit about half a dozen electronics & micro sites when things get boring. There's nothing quite like a ChipA vs. ChipB battle, or a Language war.

    Of the eight engineers I have observed in this regard, only one does any online gaming. 3 of them like table games, 4 enjoy video games, and 4 seek entertainment elsewhere.

    Obviously, my sample is not statistically valid...

    From the number of computers I have had to resystem that had been on game sites, I would have to be very sure there was nothing significant to lose on the computer in question. Maybe my very old Gateway E-3110 with W98.

    But then I'm not an engineer.

    If you could choose: do you prefer a tetris kind of game or more warcraft kind??

    Hello,

    I have played tetris some time, also the 3D version blockout.
    I like puzzels more than action games.

    :cool: Hi, if given the choice i would prefer the warcraft kind.... but Tetris is excellent to kill boredom & stress (the latter being a scientific research proof!)

    Is the 3D Preview of Ultiboard the same?

    I was doing fine with my old system, until I was given Call of Duty 4 for Christmas a year ago. Ended up dumping about a grand in for a quad core, dual video, memory, motherboard, and power supply for all of it.

    I lost about 2 months playing that game. Then CoD WaW came out.. I've stayed out of multiplayer, so I haven't missed much time.

    There's no such thing as "Just for a little bit". i can either not play, or plan on a 8+ hour marathon (feels like 2 hrs tho).

    Never been a "Heavy Gamer" though. :p

    I [would] like to play racing and "war" games, as well as simple [AoE I...] strategy games, any kind of multiplayer connection would be good, but I don't have:

    1.) Enough bandwidth allowance.
    2.) "Cool" and "new" games [yes, the old, simple stuff is nice too, but not DOS games].
    3.) A computer that is actually mine and not to be shared.
    4.) Anyone to play against that I know in person, or well online, and isn't ULTRA inferior or Mega superior in terms of skill level.

    I like "precision" and the "maths" of games, which applies to the above. Anyone else feel that way?
