I gotta get to Oblivion eventually... I decided to stick with MW for now, but maybe in a couple years when there are even more mods available...
Oh and here's another video I did for MW :

As for the rain thing lol, limitation of the game engine :( [Although there are emulators/new fan-engines for Morrowind in the making!]

TrackMania Nations Forever

VIDEO: Video in HQ: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVcWrBr-Ea0&fmt=18

It's a free game, so there's no reason you shouldn't try it (unless your CPU is slower than around a 1GHz and your GPU is a 10-year old piece of crap) so GET IT NOW.

Standard HTTP Download
Bittorrent Download
Steam Download

The game reminds me of hot wheels actually, with the crazy flying jumps, loops, etc. This is a racing game, but it's slightly different. It's more of a "multiplayer time trial" unless you're specifically playing online on a server in laps, rounds, or stunts modes (all of which are less popular than time trials) - even more so since there's actually no collision detection between cars, but that's good for people with crappy connections. The handling and "feel" is what I call "sim-arcade", in a similar style to something like Project Gotham, where braking is DEFINITLY necassary, but is still too arcadey to be considered a sim-racer.

The game by default uses only the arrow keys really, but you can customize the controls completely, to the point of using a gamepad. Also note that you can use the Enter key to respawn at the last checkpoint and Backspace/Delete to retry from the beginning of a track (both of these may at times be disabled by various servers when playing online). Use the space bar for chat messages and ESC for a pause menu; NUM Pad changes camera view.

If you want a custom car model, Trackmania Carpark is what you'll want. Take note that they won't show up for other people online unless you're playing the retail version (TrackMania United Forever, which includes 6 other environments among other things).

As for playing online, time trial servers are plenty, so no need to recommend one. Rounds mode too isn't too hard to find a server for. It's laps that's the rare one, so allow my to point one out (my personal favorite): 'Real F1 Forever' located under United States -> Arizona. There's also stunts mode, but I've never been into that really so I haven't payed attention to how common servers are for it.

So, uh... DOWNLOAD THE GAME!

Oh, and if you're worried about this "StarForce" thing you've heard about, worry not - that was in an older TrackMania game.

EDIT: I nearly forgot an important tip! Use the Enter key (or your "check-point respawn" key) to skip track intros. It'll save you time and possibly prevent late-starts online.

So, i'm going to buy a new RPG. I can't decide between Eternal Sonata and Lost Odyssey. I found both at the same price, new and sealed. (About $25-30, in dollars)

Suggestions D: ?

I have more RPGs that i want but i either can't remember them at the moment or they are expensive.

Already bought it... well, in the process of doing so. I'll pay for it this Monday (hopefully) and will probably get it by Friday.

FINALLY! after 6 months out, managed to get my hands on resistance 2... the easier way to describe it:

Future post: On 9/9/09, I will (hopefully) be playing the then just released Fire Pro HD. Nearly crapped myself when I heard this was announced as downloadable.

Considering that one is FPS and the other is third person... i don't think that's the case.

I was thinking of getting a PS3 this summer because of the price cut, but the damn dollar sky rocketed and it will cost me the same D:!! Fuck you, economic crysis. Fuck you.

Oh, Eternal Sonata just arrived and i'm loving it.

Just replayed and beaten FFX. Holy shit, that game is f**king awesome, more so if you replayed it many years after your first playthrough.

Fifa 2009. Taking the Chicago Fire up against ****ing Liverpool is the biggest pain in my ass ever. But hey, I was able to get Landon Donovan from LA, so I'm happy. Also: King of Colosseum II. Having a fun storyline going on right now. Poison Mist FTW.

Picked up Mirror's Edge yesterday, fun shit. I'm not far into it, but so far it reminds me of Prince of Persia but first person PoV, and I loved PoP.

Good game.

Now, what could be so awesome about a self-exploding mega-man ripoff? I'm now waiting for it to be released! It seems way too stupiod and fun to just let it pass.

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.

I'm playing DISCIPLINE and it's the most hilarious piece of shit ever. They protagonist comes 20+ times each day, and 10% of the dialogue is actual story, and it's so freaking baaaad I want to tear my arms off, but I can't since I'm busy laughing.
