At the moment, I'm going through Secret of the SIlver Blades, and playing Space Cowboy a bit on the side.

FreeCell Grin

Honestly there just aren't any PC titles right now that pique my interest.  I am hotly anticipating the following:

IL-2: 1946
Enemy Territory Quake Wars
Supreme Commander

I haven't seriously been into any PC titles for some time now aside from a brief stint with Star Wars Legos II several weeks back.  For the above titles I'll probably be building a new rig sometime early next year.

Star Control 3. It's actually better than I remembered. If you can ignore the boring music, the shoddy puppetry, the plot inconsistencies, the pathetic colonies, the proliferation of aliens with speech defects and/or silly accents, the having to wait for timed events (everything interesting happens at 000.00 hours!) or fuel production, the bugs and the general lack of original dialogue, there's actually quite a good game there.

Star Control 3 would have been a much better game if Legend had fled to Alaska and finished it properly.

Never underestimate the commitment of Accolade to release dates. Cheesy

Games that I've played recently:

-Starflight (Amiga version through WinUAE, as it totally stomps over the IBM PC original)
-Beneath a Steel Sky (Just finished the ScummVM version on Wednesday. Can't get the CD32 version to work through WinUAE, though. It was inevitable that I'd play it due to constant comparisons with SC2.)
-IL-2 Sturmovik demo (I'm debating to myself as to whether to buy IL-2 or wait for BoB:SoW. And one thing-do I get anything from merging the original with FB, the AEP, PF, and soon, 1946? The compilations never include the original.)

I'm probably going to start playing Starflight again as soon as I finish a few more furballs to hone any piloting skills I might have.

I'm not sure why you would want the original.  FB is simply the original with additional stuff (updated flight model, graphics, additional planes and campaigns).  The soon to be released 1946 'expansion' is a DVD-ROM containing FB, AEP, PF, as well as the three new campaigns/expansions in the form of Sturmoviks over Manchuria, Pe-2, and 1946.

I've been going through the games in Fedora's repo. So far there isn't much there
that catches my attention. Maelstorm and Stones&Diamonds are kinda fun. And,
of course, UQM is in there.
Hunt For Gold was good, but it's unfinished. It's a Pirates remake which was abandond
a few years ago.

Same here; I've been stuck on the level named "emerge -ev world" on a laptop for several days now.  What level are you on?
In the mean time, I've been trying to get BF2 to work online.  I'm pretty sure it's my ISP now... grrr

I was nethacking until I pissed myself off again.

And slowly playing on KingdomOfLoathing.com (going 'hardcore oxygenarian' does tend to slow you down a bit)

There's a special event going on right now... join before the 25th (WELL before, ideally) for the most fun!

I'd like to try StarFlight, it seems interesting. Kinda hard to find the Amiga version with b2r down. Cough.

Cough cough cough. I'm having a cough attack here, can someone hit my back?



I liked the GUI I saw here. Reminded me of M.U.L.E.
Clean and bullshit free. I couldn't restrain myself, so I did a font and font drawing func. Not so sure about the selleri dude though, even Bellsprout (Pokémon) is more enigmatic.
