      Had a hard time getting the bonus packs working for BF 2.

      EA Tech support manually activated it.

      What a way to run a railroad.

      Had a LAN party last weekend and played BF2.

      We couldn't play the expansions because EA is having some sort of problem with their content servers.

      They seem to be having issues with their tech support, too

    • Bots

      I find the multiplayer coop games that have an option for Bots (computer players) more enjoyable, especially when you only have about four people on.

      I was disappointed when Halo for the PC didn't allow Bots.
      There were suppose to be Halo maps which would allow Bots, but I could never get them working.

      And I never understood why some games had stupid Bots in multiplayer, but were good in single player
      (other than poor programming)

      The Battlefield games allow you to set the intelligence of the Bot players.
      It works fairly well, though there sometimes seems to be a fine line between stupid and deadly.

      Looks like my sons are working on a mini LAN party with NWN2.

      Part of the consideration (I think) for one is can everyone afford the price of the game to be played.

      That's why we usually play older games.

      But these days a game can drop pretty low in just a year.

      I got NWN 2 for $10 and I got the first expansion for $20.

      It makes me question the high price of new games.

      Looks like we may be getting into Battlefield 2 next.

      I bought the original game a while ago, but I thought the tanks were pathetic. Apparently they are a bit tougher in the expansions.

      I had a couple of friends who have been interested in getting into BF2, and with my sons buying a couple of copies with the expansions and playing it all weekend, I guess it can't be stopped. smiley1.gif

      I'll probably have to pick up one more copy myself with the expansions (you can't buy just the expansions anymore), but $29 isn't too bad.

    • Space Siege

      I was hoping Space Siege was going to be another good LAN game, but it isn't quite as advertised.

      Dungeon Siege allows you to play the campaign in multiplayer mode, so I was expecting the same with Space Siege.

      Instead, Space Siege only allows you to play "levels".

      An annoying thing about many new games are those that try to update when they detect an internet connection.

      The last thing you want at a LAN party is to have game versions out of sync and/or spend game time updating.
      Then there is the problem of newer updates causing new problems that you are not prepared for.

      So I try to remember to unplug the router from the internet before starting.

      Even worse are the games that will not play unless you have an internet connection, even if you are playing on a closed LAN.

    • Wireless Networks

      Going wireless makes LAN parties so much easier. Less wires to worry about.

      We still have some machines hard wired, but having extra connect wireless is great.
