Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit SP1

Age: 24
First "big" game: Warcraft: Orcs & Humans
Most played game (online) : Star Wars: The Old Republic
Most played game (offline): The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Games currently playing: Star Wars: The Old Republic, CoD:Black Ops, TESV:Skyrim, TESIV:Obilivion, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Crysis
Favorite game of all time: Final Fantasy Legends (1989) Original Gameboy

Gave the favorite to the game that had the largest impact on my life as a whole. The game made me realize that you could be part of a story, instead of just watching or reading about it. It lead me to one of the passions in my life, and led me to pursue a career in technology.

Good news for Dungeon Siege1/DSLoA diehard fans..
aww c'mon there must someone out there who still plays this little gem..
Dungeon Siege: Legends of Aranna - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

thanks to a very enthusiastic tribe of modders, over the years
there have been a number of excellent mods created for this game..

I have already mentioned Mageworld, Lands Of Hyperboria and Legend Of Utrae
which anyone with an eagle-eye can track down, via a search of the inter-web

there is another mod out there called DSAbstraction, which was being developed for the DSLoA game
the latest version is still available for play-testing, via the SiegeTheDay site, see here:
request for abstraction dsmap file | Siege the day

it introduces a great many innovations to the gameplay, including martial arts
and, although not finished, it plays really well and provides an excellent adventure..

it's a good-looking thing and plays well at 1600x900 - switch off crossfire if you have it, though
as the engine doesn't like it at all, and gives artifacts otherwise..

Thanks for that, Bugmeister.

Got the game/s as a freebie with my last comp, which wouldn't run it properly.

Threw it onto this new one last week, and it runs like a dream.

This is the first time I've ever played it, and I quite enjoy it.

Back on topic....

Age: 54

First 'big' game: Gauntlet on the C64.

Most Played: Colin McRae Rally (the original).

Fave Game: Too many to list.

Currently Playing: MoH:Pacific Assault, CoD 2, Stalker: Call of Pripyat, Half-Life 2, Dungeon Siege
NFS Underground 2, DeusEx 1 & 2 (again!).
