    Just bought Final Fantasy 13 for the PS3 and liking it a lot. Square Enix definitely did a great job on this one with there hardly being a difference between CGI and game play it looks really good… of course that is in 1080p.

    I too got the superbox, but will likely have to wait until next week to receive it from Amazon. You have Evil Genius Pinback? I loved that game! The traps you could create could cause some hilarious results! Although the game was obviously inspired by Dungeon Keeper, I always thought there was a little of No One Lives Forever in there too 😉

    You bought the “superbore” box, lol? 🙂 Are you a collector, Pinback, driven to have things for completeness’ sake? I thought you’d be the last person to pick this up. I bought Terran Conflict that way but there’s no way I’m buying every game again in a massive collection! C’mon, Egosoft – what are you going to do next??

    This weekend I bought Aquanox 1 & 2 from GOG.I’d played Archimedean Dynasty on Dosbox and had always heard how good these games were supposed to look, even if the gameplay wasn’t as good. and I want to support GOG a little more as there’s no other service like it and it would be a crime if it disappeared. Disappeared properly, I mean – dumb publicity stunts notwithstanding. 😀

    I collect space trading games, so like any one who collects anything you tend to get a bit obsesses, 😀 don’t know about playing any of them, 😆 might have look at X2 again. 😕

    Play the Evil Genius demo when it first came out and thought Iam going to have to get a copy of that, then totally forgot about it.
    Love the Dungeon Keeper games as they have the single greatest game feature ever “IMP SLAPPING”. 😆 😆
    Never played any of the No One Live forever games.

    Evil genius is great, I have a copy of that collecting dust somewhere.

    Its far too short though I think theres only 2 or 3 levels IIRC.

    The game I’ve been playing quite a lot this year is Dwarf Fortress, a free game.

    It has many similarities to Evil Genius and Dungeon Keeper, more to Dungeon keeper.

    Its a very impressive game, although it sounds pretty dorky 😉

    Almost every aspect of the game is procedural, which means no two games are ever the same.

    Before you play the game will generate from scratch an entire land-mass, as well as generate civilizations and populations and track every person created. This all gets added to the world history, which is also procedurally generated.

    The world is created very realistically, with erosion, rainfall, wind and weather ect.

    An example of the realism:

    I remember reading that someone had keyed in the height map for Western-Europe, The game then filled in forests lakes and rivers in almost the same places as real life, all based on its procedural settings.. Even some cities were in the same place, such as paris, although it had some rediculous name 🙂

    I’m sorry if this has turned into an advertisement for Dwarf Fortress, but it really is a good game.. IF you can get over the learning curve, which is pretty immense.

    The game itself:

    Comprised of 3 parts, Dwarf/Fortress mode, Adventure mode and Legends/Historical mode.

    In Dwarf mode, you set out with 7 dwarves to make your mark on the world you just created. You have to mine the Earth for your materials, and build build build 🙂

    But it has a lot of depth, the materials you mine are real, with real properties.

    The dwarves all have their own histories and likes/dislikes as well as personality.

    Here is a pic of the description of my Mayor. just so you can see the insane depth this game goes into:

    Dwarf%20Fortress%202010-10-10%2018-41-22-37.jpg

    Here is the main view you will see in the game:

    The Red 7s either side of the bridge are magma, as this fort it built inside a volcano.

    It has elaborate ways of releasing the magma onto unsuspecting tree-hugging elves and would-be invader Goblins. 😉

    The red smears on the bridges are Elf blood.

    You can also see some Polar bears, I bought those from the elves and bred about 50 of them into war animals, which help to defend the fort with my military dwarves 🙂

    Dwarf%20Fortress%202010-10-10%2018-42-32-45.jpg

    And heres an overview of my fort in a visualiser app, that you can run alongside the game:

    What your looking at is a giant Clear Glass pyramid which is situated directly over the caldera of a volcano. The volcano has been demolished and the glass pyramid build in its place. Eventually the lava will flow/erupt out of the top of the pyramid, but its taking a long time.

    knifesea%20overview.jpg

    In advernture mode, you take control of one guy, and travel the world visiint your old forts and villages doing ‘adventures’. Its ok but Dwarf mode is better.

    In Legends mode, you can inspect every detail of the world. Population, history ect ect.

    Does anyone else know of Dwarf Fortress?

    Looks like the ultimate dwarf fortress.

    Ghost master is another game in the mould of Dungeon Keeper is there any more.

    Bought an xbox an original one still in its box , look like it never been used.

    I guess I should have looked at the back of box a bit closer although the Chinese letters should have been a bit of a give away as it turns out to be a region 3 one. 🙄

    Then again it was only 7.99. 😀

    Also got a brand new joystick for a fiver haven’t used one about 10 years.

    Yesterday I finally succumbed and bought AI War from Arcen games. I wish I could recommend it but in all honesty I don’t [yet] know what all the fuss is about with this one. – I bought it purely to support the developers, who seem to churn out new content on a frighteningly quick basis, not to mention recently porting the entire game into a brand new engine. I also bought it to support their efforts to raise money for a sick children’s charity. Finally, the entire internet seems to love the game giving me the sneaking suspicion I’m missing out on something… 😉

    “Your minions are winning the battle! Your minions are falling in battle! Your minions are winning in battle!” Sometimes the Mentor gets confused when there is more than one battle at the same time.

    Bringing down, torturing and converting Avatar was the best thing ever! It felt like taking revenge for all the hard time Avatar gave me in Ultima 8 Pagan. 😀

    You could use an emulator if your not adversed to that sort of thing, its legal providing you use your own games and have an xbox which you do 🙂

    I just remembered this old Gem: KeeperFX, which is a dungeon keeper fan expansion made to work on modern computers 🙂

    I’ve got no problem with using emulator, use them all the time for 8/16 bit computer and consoles. Just didn’t know there was a working one for the Xbox ,but you can pick up a real Xbox for about 10-20 quid.

    Interesting fan site for Dungeon Keeper, never played the first one only the second one.
