Gridwars was fun, lack of dual analoge controller at the moment meant bad gameplay... I would love to add this to my MAME machiene. Too bad it doesn't have an insert coin feature....

The game is pretty fun with a mouse.

If you want to put some effort into it, you can hook up a controller to the computer (PSX/2, Wii Classic Controller, X360, etc) and do some manipulation with PPJoy and GlovePie you can get it to work any way you wish.

Good to see Enemy Territory up there, where it belongs.

Liero and Soldat
Its a shame that Soldat and Liero dont get the fame they deserve. Expecially Liero.

All these are a good selection but are all made by huge companies (well at least now) when Liero and Soldat are made by a single guy and in Liero's case a woman

I remember spending days as a kid modding out Liero and playing splitscreen with my best friend.

I just thought it might pop up again and was a little dissapointed

My two cents anyway

Free Servers
There are tons of free servers out there that you can play really cool games.

Such as Lineage2, Ragnarok, and World of Warcraft. And downloading these software for free is just as easy.

Re: Free Servers
Lineage 2 and World of Warcraft are not legally free.

This is a Personal Journal
I'd like to point out that this is a personal journal. I don't have any affiliation with any of the companies who have ownership of these titles or anything like that.

I would appreciate if technical questions about the games listed here were not asked in my journal ... if you need help, search google or try visiting the publisher's forums.

I will delete any further comments that refer to technical help.

Re: This is a Personal Journal
sorry bout that, only reason i asked on here was that i did try google and the forums so this was just my last try!

thanks for the links though!

Re: This is a Personal Journal
You can click on the link I posted. There's some people having trouble there too, but might be able to help.

Albeit it takes a couple days to register there (time limit for newbies).
