    Age of Empires III

    Got to agree there! As great as AOEIII is, Rome does beat it.

    Ahh, but I have my own copy here already :p I remembr paying full whack for it back when it was first released. Must have watched the entire series a dozen times through already.

    A more indepth look at dreamfall

    Do! :D Although, have you played the prequel, The Longest Journey? Having played that through first, it does heighten the experience somewhat.

    Oh it's good. It's very good in fact! Lacking in puzzles of couse, which might put a few off, but the story and delightfully voiced characters....absolute heaven!

    Xbox 360 : Anyone else here got one?

    I gots one, of course ;) At the moment I'm playing Oblivion, Football Manager 2006, and Top Spin 2. Plus, the constant bouts of Geometry Wars Evolved. Now thats a game worth owning. Fight Night Round 3 is a great game, though it can get a bit tedious in single player. The Outfit's rubbish...

    At the moment I'm listening to a lot of Elbow, and Belafonte. No, not HARRY Belafonte :p Plus, trying to cut down my Radiohead listening time, so seeing them on May 13th might be a bit more special ;)
