PC - Diablo review


January 19, 2002


Controls - 5/5

Graphics - 3/5

Concept - 5/5

Stabity - 4/5

Sound - 4/5

Diablo I was the longest online game that still exsists on a public server, even before Half-life. The reason I say that is that Doom and Hexen can still be played online is they they have IP support. Diablo was the first game to run on Windows to have its popularity, the and misclassified the online gaming community. The game takes place in 1 town but isn't as not small but not as big is Diablo II. The first carried 5 character in Hellfire which I never played. The game is also has really good gameplay with the use of keyboard and mouse. One said thing about Diablo is that constructed characters can play on battlenet and have no difficulty with mods such as God Mode and the wor

PC - Unreal Tournament review

Unreal Tournament

January 19, 2002


Controls - 5/5

Graphics - 5/5

Stability - 4/5

Concept - 4/5

Sound - 5/5

I haven't played this game since it is too bloody. The graphics even though have been surpassed looks like it will run on Windows and be a favorite amongst gamers for 3 more years. By that time Unreal 2 will of hit stores. Digital Extremes made Unreal Tournament simply a perfected version of Unreal. I own both games and Unreal Tournament looks the same to the first Unreal. Both games use Unreal ED 2.0. The level designer in Unreal Tournament. UT is a massive First Person Shooter with tons of developer support. One reason to get the game is that there are at-least 5 or 6 new levels that come out on Fileplanet every month. But I wouldn't know since I haven't played this game for weeks. The AI is variable. The levels that come with the game have very good to decent. I like the castle lvl the best and that ship lvl the worst. The harder the level the more hit damage. The game is very clean and is very stable which supports both OpenGL and Direct3D.

PC - Return to Castle Wolfenstine review

Return to Castle Wolfenstine

January 19, 2002


Controls - 5/5

Graphics - 5/5

Concept - 5/5 You play an American trying to get out of a German fortress.

Very cool. Very real. In fact extensive research was taken to make the game the best experience a player could have without making it difficult.

Stability - 5/5 the game is fluid and has had no freeze ups.

Sound - 5/5 German speaking Nazis, nice script, and realistic gunfire makes it up their with Unreal Tournament and Half-Life. The gunfire is in surround sound. The best part is that Id Software had this sound location mod that came with the game so it don't really use the sound-card at all..

The new game is a recreation of the first Wolfenstine back before Quake was released. The original game looked exactly like doom with the low resolution graphics. Return to Castle Wolfenstine is the same game with many Germans, great graphics, and an urge to play again and again. In my opinion this game is as fun as Goldeneye. This game doesn't exist in a fantasy world where hell has taken over (Quake III) The fact that the concept is world war II based is enough to buy the title. Another new trend in the game is that the single player mode and multi-player mode are cerate. I like this a whole lot. You can be on the Wolfenstine server in matter of a minute. It looks as if this game will soon become the next Quake III. Id has free level editors on the web already (Uses the Quake III editor) . New maps are popping up on Wolfenstine fan-sites, already. I would highly recommend this game to anyone.

PC - Diablo II - LOD review

Diablo 2 - Lord of Distruction

November 23, 2001


Type - Role Playing Game released on June 30, 2000

Controls - 4.5/5 mouse and keyboard are very responsive

Graphics - 4/5 Diablo 2 is for low resolution computers

Concept - 5/5 Perfect. The story which took Blizzard 4 years to create was modified for that many years.

Stability - 4/5 near perfect. Battlenet has kept the game online expect the few times attempts of hackers, disconnecting of modems and people who ping you who don't want them in their game.

Sound 4/5 - good orchestra music with decent quality sound effects and great acting.

Diablo 2 is fun and addictive. The game includes 7 characters and 40 locations and climates. The sequel takes after the original when the dark-angel lead a human to free Diablo, what he didn't know is that he wasn't the Protector and was killed. You are the character who plays the story up to the death of Diablo and the defeat of Baal.

I have played Diablo 2 for almost a year and the playablity always got better. Each new patch has worked better then the last. And beating the game is no easy task but once you reach the 60 level, anything in the game would be easy except for that quest in Act V where warriors come at you on top of this hill. That is extremely hard, but if you beat that the game can be rewarding. There are a couple bad things about it is that like all games run my modem, their are always slow downs which may get you killed. But a party can conquer finish a few quests in an hour. Battlenet is free and their are no long distance fees.

Over Diablo, Diablo 2 LoD has specific weapons for each character class. The expansion allows you to create perfect gems and unify it into your armor, weapon or shield to make the good even better. I have a level 77 sorceress that masters in fire and lighting. My character can wipe of another character 10 levels up (as long as it isn't another sorceress.) But you will find that once your character gets too powerful, you may this grow tired of creating new characters, which isn't bad, this it makes you feel that your lvl 80 druid or lvl 92 barbarian is this doing nothing, so it is something to think about if you play it all the time.

PC - Sims Deluxe

The Sims Deluxe

February 05, 2003


Playing the Sims is my new favorite over playing Metroid Prime for Gamecube. This is about 6 months after I've stopped playing Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction for the PC. The game has a great graphics engine if your computer can handle all the bitmaps that account for Furniture and the house itself. The characters of course are live action 3D models that really need a 32 Bit videocard at least. I use a 64 bit ATI Radian 9000 in my PC. The Sims is game were you get to control people and determine what personality. Every sim has a right to be happy. Sims start out happy. It is easy to keep your Sims happy if they have something to eat, music and a job that pays for their bills, furniture and food. I like the Sims because it is original. Some Sims get really bored and do nothing. But that's when you get to start over and make adjustments to your house size before you spend $15,000 out of your $20,000 on the home, then run out of money for personal items like kitchenware or beds and dressers.

The houses you can build are endless. You can even make gardens and keep them in good shape.

Your Sims start out at 0 work habits, 0 creativity and 0 skilled. Each time you learn to play the guitar or bench press you earn 1 level skill. Sometimes you will be doing so much that you won't have time for friends but don't forget your friends or they won't be your friend anymore. That is, unless the other guy is as lonely and bord as you are. Gamers will find that part out very quickly. Minutes fly by like seconds. Hours fly by like minutes. The day goes by very quickly. So you'll always have something to do. There is a learning curve that your Sim will learn. He/she will eventually learn to take out the trash by himself or shower himself or work out himself and if he really is happy he'll go to work without you clicking on the car. Ingenious system isn't it.

There is really no leveling up in The Sims like in Role Playing Game but like RPGs you can be playing The Sims for a long time. Most of it's uncomplicated. Buy the 2002 version of The Sims Deluxe. I recommend this game to anyone.

PS2 - Jak and Daxter review


Developer : NaghtyDog

A.) A new Crash game that plays like Crash Bandicoot but isn't him.

Publisher : Sony

B.) A lot of objectives.

Released December 2001

C.) Silly characters

D.) A lot of Dialog

Type : Platform

Jak and Dexter is a pretty platformer for PS2. I know that PS2 is getting obsolete, but the graphics just seem a little jagged in this game. It’s marvelous to play. The jaggedness is easy to look over because Jak plays well. Jak is the main character, he looks like an elf, and Dexter is a muskrat who Jak teams up with. The spoken dialog is mainly aimed at children, but the tasks, which are set up like Super Mario 64, are variable. I don’t know, I feel like a child when I play this game. It gives off a good feeling though, like you accomplished something. This is harder then Super Mario 64, but I marvel at the Jak’s maneuvers, they are precise. I started to play a game called Ratchet and Clank and while this game compares well to Jak. Jak is notably better. The gamer gets to do objectives which are highlighted in the beginning of the stage. You can repeat or change the objective. Jak is definably a Super Mario 64 clone, one of the best clones since the N64 game. One reason is the game’s developer, Naughty Dog is also known for developing Crash Bandicoot. The first Crash, I heard was the best in the franchise, sold over 3 million copies. The Crash trademark was then sold to Universal Interactive where it became an average game, Crash 4, never to be seen again as a recognizable mascot in the videogame industry. Naughty Dog created a new franchise that took off again. The 2 year project has lava levels, green levels, towns, and water craft. The game has 10 objectives for each stage in the game. This alone brings the game’s to-do list to 120 objectives. Jak closely representing another platform game, not as well known though, Rayman 2: The Great Escape. I like Jak a lot, and it deserves a high review.

Remember Jak is completely designed after Super Mario 64. SM64 was a good game. I didn’t know it was THE BEST PLATFORM GAME EVER CREATED until I found out from numerous review websites. Latest Rumor on the Internet is that Super Mario 64 is coming to Gamecube bundled with Super Mario 128 which the gaming community knows little about. It’s suppose to be better then Mario Sunshine. Jak brings dialog and funny scenes to the genre. The camera angle is nice and doesn’t get bad, ever! gave this game a 9.5 out of 10. I recommend going to a place I like to go called to read a good review. Browse for Jak and Dexter under Reviews.

Summing up Jak !



The game graphic quality is 10 to 1 and it was Sony's premere platform game in 2001.



Jak is easy to control. The control is responsive. The bottom line is if you aren't good at this game, then you haven't played Playstation like the rest of us! This game is inviting to any first time gamer new to Playstation. Its fun like Super Mario 64 was.

PC - Dungeon Siege review

Dungeon Siege

March 14, 2003



A.) one gigantic universe of in game scenery (an almost endless game)

B.) ability to create maps using the Siege Editor

C.) Many many people to talk too on the way to make the game look interesting

D.) Free Downloadable maps including Yesterhaven, the official expansion pack.

C.) 2 full maps, Kingdom of Erb, and Ultraean Peninsula each worth 10 to 20 hours of game play each. Depending on your skill level.

Dungeon Siege is the popular game from Gas Powered Games which has 100s of thousands of people hooked because if it's incredibly simple combat system. Yes you would have to be a fan of of either Warcraft, StarCraft, Everquest or Diablo to qualify. But what you want to hear is that Dungeon Siege is a better game then Diablo 2. Dungeon Siege what I am playing now on my PC. Diablo 2 being my second favorite online game. I can't really say how much detail graphically went in this game because my PC (Even with a Nvidia Geforce 2) slows down to a craw during my single player game playing one of six people in my party. Take that Diablo 2 single player mode. With a few mods and and trainer the game couldn't be more fun. I spent 3 hours and not even seeing 1/5 of the whole game.

Hacking enemies to death is not boring due to the party's ability to handle most enemies. I defeat a small army and go onto the next. This is the heart and soul of Dungeon Siege. P.S. I find that any sorceress's in the game is the worst. Having a sorceress join the party the first time slows the party down some what because sorceresses have a hard time leveling up using spells. The character's intelligence is hardest to gain. There are so many pipe sized army ranging from moderate to very hard. Again the game is graphically demanding, even a 1.3 GHz machine can get a heavy work out. At 800/600 there is a lot going on. The capacity of the game can even go up 3 resolutions.

Besides the fact that having a LAN running the game with a trainer would, to me, be the best thing that could happen to me. Not being able to join games on the network with out satelight internet or broadband would this kill the enjoyment of the game. The only possible way around this is joining a 2 person game with a modem in the same town. That way it won't cost you 30 dollars in long distance bills. Even though it would lag a bit it would be about the same as any FPS direct connection out there.

At the most basic level, it takes no thinking or standardizing to get what you want to happen in this game. If your party isn't able to take on a variety of enemies. You'll know it very fast. If you want you can try to "find ways of living longer" or most commonly known as "out thinking your opponent." To me however "out thinking your opponent" would be the same as me being a deer against a man with a rifle. So it is really a waste of brain power. Even though I like warcraft too. I have a very hard time with it because I have to think and rely on myself which gets me killed 10 times over. So I really appreciate ability to choice party members in single player mode.

I know it, everyone else playing this game knows it. Buying basic supplies is cheap. Most the time that's all you need. I find all my armor and weapons on the battle field. Because the elves destroyed and took suppiles from these towns, most of the humble towns people this want to get by so they sell you stuff really cheap. I like this because one of the essentials, the pack mule, only cost me a little bit. I can't recall what town it was - I don't remember names.

Dungeon Siege Quests, I have to say I enjoy questing as much as doing nothing in the whole game. Part of the game is knowing where to go to complete the chapter. If that makes a whole lot of sense. Characters in the game ask you to do things that are impossible. For an example in chapter one the town's blacksmith asks me to find his brother when perhaps I couldn't find him any ways because he was killed by a ugly orc.

Hmm. If you take notice in this game you'll realize that you can be playing it all day without looking at the clock. This includes picking items off the ground and adding the better ones to our party. The rest of the time hacking and slashing enemies. Spending all my time doing quests covering large amounts of land doing each one is hard work. It makes me want to drink a lot of pop.

Want to level up really fast in Dungeon Siege? There is a favorite that every likes to call the Chicken Level. With the use of the trainer your character will level up 3 times faster then he normally would with out dieing. Sadly this level can not be played in single player mode. Unless you want to import your story mode (aka single player mode) character over to your LAN party using the transfer option. Neat-O.

I'd also advise people to build up a multiplayer character. In single player you only get to play the Kingdom of Erb. Which is still long, and top notch as role playing is concerned. The Ultraean Peninsula is also a huge map with all new characters, and landscape. Playing the maps from the beginning is no fun so Gas Powered Games came up with the idea of opening progress points throughout the game. You gain access through the muiliplayer setup and going to game settings, clicking on the map. Then selecting what town you wish to travel though. Online there are extra downloadable files that will make Ultraean Peninsula a Single Player Mode option. Download it some where at

If you have a computer fast enough I hope you buy this game. Its my best gaming experience I had since a friend of mine introduced me to Diablo I. If you plan to play alone and don't have access to broadband, the story mode far outceeds the online experience. The patch really doesn't do much good. The game still runs good without it.


As many Dungeon Siege players know, this file is not only the most fun map, but also the only expansion pack made by Gas Powered Games. Some people can't download this huge file. Once downloaded, it is well worth the time. The size of Yesterhaven is maybe 1/3 size of Kingdom of Erb. This map isn't the longest map available to download, but it does comes with a decent story. You transfer to a location of a town called Yesterhaven. You and your character defeat wolves, snowmen, fire demons, necromancers, and such in 3 levels Ice, Dark and Fire. In the ice stage, I see a lot of trees. The landscape is smooth. You'll find a lot of reflections off ice in the cave, coming later in the stage. In my opinion I like the one with the skeletons the best of all of them. You have the best looking demons that I came across. Low level characters can level up here. In fact, because the stages can be completed with in 10 or 20 minutes. You character can buy extraordinary items from a skeleton dude which appears in all three levels. On my computer, Yesterhaven runs at a reasonable 40 frames per second. I am sure that the frame rate will rise on faster computers. The frame rate does drop when dealing with a lot of enemies on screen at one time. When I finished Yesterhaven, I like it a lot. I give Yesterhaven a 5 out of 5 in level design. This map isn't too hard, but not overly easy. To bad this map couldn't of been longer. Not that it was short, Yesterhaven is plenty long, and will take you atleast 2 1/2 to 3 hours to complete. In the end, you'll be awarded with better armor.

Chicken Level

Attack of the killer chicken is a prime example of this level. The small chickens that once were afraid of you, start flocking at you. In the latest build, chickens can easily peck low level characters to death. You must have 400 health and 300 defensive body armor if you even stand a chance out lasting the giant pecking mother fu__. As you go on, the chickens double in size. The hit points increase even more and their attack is stronger. If your character can get past those chickens (I advise retreating to more able ground) you go past this dragon that takes up the entire width of your monitor. In the end, you get to defeat "Diablo" That's what I call him. He's an exact duplicate of Diablo. He's not a chicken, he's red meanie and in charge! He does mega damage! The final boss does more damage then a large size chicken. I never tried defeating him alone before. Thus, the chicken level is purposely made for a group of players. For that reason I give it a 3/5.

Hyperbora v2.0

Hyperbora is a independent map made by a development team in Holland. I seriously doubt these people got payed for putting this game out. On the site, the publisher said that he and his development team spent 5 months on creating this level. (building, debugging, stabilizing the level for deleting unneeded scenery, etc) I haven't got much into it. However, I do know that this level is really long. Hyperbora has towns like Kingdom of Erb did. Except that all towns sell shit for items. It is also tougher then either Kingdom of Erb and Ultraean Peninsula. Some say that the map sucks. I say it doesn't. The majority of people will agree with me. I tried it out with my high level character and it works fine in the beginning. I would suggest downloaded this map at I guess I'm giving this game a 3.5 out of 5 cause it's an above average map from start to finish.

PC - Unreal Tournament 2003 review

Unreal Tournament 2003

March 2003


A.) Updated version of the Unreal Tournament. Since it is preferred then Unreal 2, UT2003 is the stand alone.

B.) 25 deathmatch maps, 10 counterstrike, 10 domination, what more can you ask for?

C.) Emensely graphical. Your talking about state of the art graphics that you before only saw on consoles.

D.) improvements in map design. Maps are larger, more open

I remember playing Unreal Tournament three years ago. The remixs made exciting off the wall music. No, they weren't exceptional, some were very good. Others were ok. A few were dull. I liked some of the soundtracks so much that I found the mp3s version of those somes, one example is "Run!!!". Unreal Tournament was a highly enjoyable game, I think, and the only game that I was able to play on 2 computers using the same disc. That game and Half-Life. I think that Castle Wolfenstine comes second before Half Life. I never really liked Quake III, which was a blood fest to say the least. I wasn't a fan of Quake III.

Then I bought UT2003 in November. Unreal Tournament 2003 is suppose to take off 100 years after Unreal Tournament. Unreal Tournament has different characters with varied skill sets. It doesn't much matter when playing the game. This game is real pretty from start to finish. The frame rate never drops, plenty to look at, and outstanding sound too boot. The music is very interesting to listen too. I don't care much about the announcer, though. UT2003 runs at a solid 60 frames per second, like on mine. That is 30 frames on some older computers. Unreal Tournament is a prime example of what a first person shooter should be, next to Halo and next to Metroid Prime, in my opinion. UNreal Tournament also comes with a single player mode where you try to complete missions in each game. Multiplayer is like the old Unreal Tournament. The concept never changed. I play this game when ever I have friends over. Got to get in time fragging with at least one friend. I don't play this game much by myself. I really can't stand playing it more then a hour at a time. After that, I lose my concentration. I lost interest with a lot of my games I buy over time. I stay interested usually when I download 3rd party maps available off the Internet. It's unbelievable how much quality people can come up with. Two/Thirds of all maps in UT2003 are worthy of play. The 1/3 that aren't usually weren't because they couldn't support a large amount of players. And it was a very frustrating game when playing in a small map in Unreal Tournament. You get smuttiered way too many times. The weakest point of a 3rd party map is usually that it does have enough pretty backgrounds to support their creation, all of these maps are bug free from the get go. A new standard that Digital Designs had put in UT2003. I doubt that the sequel will accumulate as many maps as Unreal Tournament had. Over 400 new maps, including bonus packs. Most of them, you can't download anymore. I recently downloaded the UNREAL TOURNAMENT 2003 Bonus Package, the only official bonus pack online. I'm glad I did. I give Unreal Tournament a perfect score of 5.

PC - Elder Scrolls III Morrowind review

Elder Scrolls 3 - Morrowind ( PC GAMER 2002 RPG of the Year)

Morrowind is a role playing game with vast environments in a 3d world that can ether first person or 3rd person. It looks like it takes place in the 14th century. I can tell why because the buildings are dated back to who knows when. It has the same group behind it that was on Elder Scrolls 2 in 1996.


I have both Tribunal and Bloodmoon, so I have an extended version of the game. Your character comes equipped with a dagger in the beginning, and you go out exploring. What is unique about this game is when you steal something; you’ll be reported to the authorities immediately. Stealing is half the fun in this game because you can get away with it. Don’t think you can walk in with the same clothes as one of the guards and not get noticed. The other half is leveling up your character. The easiest way is to become an outlaw. Outlaws in this game are fine, but they don’t get along with people to well.


There are 100s of weapons in this game. Some are downloadable in form of mods. The weapons look blocky though.


This game isn’t state of the art, but you’ll need an 800 MHz machine to play decently. You’ll have to deal with some major slow downs though. The game has pretty backgrounds, unparallel to other PC RPGS like Diablo 2. There are visual packs on the Internet that’ll enhance backgrounds. This game was first meant to play on a 500 MHz machine, but that’ll just make the game run slowly. Everybody has 1 GHz of speed now-a-days. The sky is bitmapped and days come and go. You’ll see stars at night and white clouds in the day, and storm clouds both day and night. It needs at least a TNT 2 to play, but you’ll get a lot of lag, your pc will load new more areas slowly created a lot of lag during actual play. It wouldn’t be noticeable on a 1.5 GHz machine, Bethesda said.

On super computers, about 2.5 GHz, and a 256-MB Geforce 4, you’ll get some awesome graphical effects. The detail, already compressed, will look cinematic like it does on Xbox. The graphics still look really good with a 128 MB Geforce 4 on my PC. Who knows how this game will be affected on newer processors?


Faces are above average and there are many Morrowind mods that’ll change the faces and make them better. They won’t look simple after some of the mods update data files that control faces.


Takes place in Renaissance period it seems like. There are super natural enemies in this game like skeletons and ghosts. But there are a lot of different races too. Races that hate each other are only apparent away from towns. But in towns, your race doesn’t mean a thing.

Drive Space

This game takes up less then a Gigabyte of hard drive space.


Microsoft Windows vs. Xbox. With a console having so much on board memory, the XBOX was an easy choice for Bethesda Softworks. The Xbox has particle shading that looks better then the PC game. But on high end PCs, there isn’t any difference.


Morrowind is a good game with plenty of quests. You can just about talk to anyone, and go on a new quest just like on Xbox. Xbox may be running smoothing, but the pc version can be modded. This game is great.

Review of Elder Scrolls III – Tibunal

Tibunal is suppose to be a good expansion, though, I won’t know until I get this far in the game. Review up soon.

Review of Elder Scolls III – Bloodmoon

Bloodmoon is the latest expansion that Benestha developed, probably the last. The expansion loads with Morrowind, and Morrowind installed with Tibunal. It has a lot to do with werewolves, and vampires. This is the first RPG since Vampires: The Masquerade that allows vampirism. Vampirism and WereWolfism are allowed outside Bloodmoon.

Never Winter Nights

March 21, 2003


A.) Very Stable, and very playable RPG. Latest patch is v1.29.

B.) 40 hours of adventuring.

C.) Battle system which improved over Baldur's Gate franchise and became a 3rd person prospective with a free rotating camera to boot.

D.) Dangerously addictive quests.

Never Winter Nights has been worked on for 5 years. One of the reasons that it's graphics has come outdated in the process. The game off cd is very buggy so I would advise getting patch update ver 1.20 off the Internet so you can run the game without it crashing. Bioware came up with Never Winter when they tried to create a real 3D version of Iceward Dale long ago, also made from Bioware. Except Neverwinter has an involving combat system. You have to constantly be aware of your characters statistics. I doubt that the Neverwinter Nights is trying to starve your character, the game is b focused on combat. This game is far beyond Diablo 2. In Diablo 2 : Lord of Destruction, you have 5 character classes including Sorcerer, Paladin, Barbarian, Amazon and Necromancer. However in this game, you can be Half Elf, Human, Half Orc, Elf, Dwarf or Half Dwarf and carry magic abilities. Which makes leveling low level characters an art in this game.

This game is ranked #1 for "Best Role Playing Game of 2002" by Gamespot and PC Magazine. Bioware shown me this how deep the story goes. The story is basically saving Neverwinter from the Plague. You can take several steps to level up in this game. Your character is saved to the game, so you can start your adventuring from the Academy through the city of Neverwinter, whether it be the Docks or Peninsula or Barracks, your character does a lot of quests for people. The game is definably rescuing people and knowing who your friends are. I know, from the first chapter, that being kind is how you get the rewards and being mean is just meaningless. I like to loot everything I get. I found some awesome armor by bashing locked chests. Try bashing doors inside towns and gain access to secret areas. Bioware has spent 5 years perfecting the battle system. The game has more in common with Dungeon Siege then Baldur's Gate II. This would be a plus for me because I was a Dungeon Siege fan most recently. Although that game was a favorite of mine for the past few months, I started playing this game instead, and will continue to play it for another few months. So far, I like the backgrounds in this title. They are really detailed. Don't let though's reviews tell you that they aren't, because they know they don't care as long as all graphics are in high resolution, which they are. I think people under-estimate how beautiful the game looks from a distance. We have running water, a lot of tiled stones and decent eye candy. Eye candy is special effects that comes with magic special effects. This game has the famous ice and fire rings appearing in battle. Found in all RPG games, first appearing in Final Fantasy, I think. This game looks a heck a lot better then Dink SmallWood! This game is bug free now with the latest patch Bioware handed out to the public. I give this game a perfect score of 5 for it's addictive gameplay.

Online Gameplay

First of all I like the online play because it's much less laggy then Dungeon Siege on a modem. Plus you get to talk to people. The game is free online and runs through the Gamespy network. You can do a lot of things in this game. Set and talk, drink beer and have sex. Really so, it's hilarious. People find the default female human character with long blue hair sexy. Anyone with the time should play online. I you have broadband, then the isn't affected unless you have someone using a modem within a 10 yard radius with in yours. Most people are either human barbarians for the fighter type. One skill that's worth having is the ability to weld your own armor together. You can sell it to someone and make money.
