    Default Games, games, games...

    Well, now that I have been "forced" into creating this forum for all the Caithness Gamers I'd better come clean and admit to my gaming dark side

    First off, I'm a proper gamer and by that I mean a PC Gamer, I have the best of gfx and sound, the mightiest of control systems (keyboard and mouse). Now I'm not going to say I have the best PC gaming system, just that its waaaay better than any console (for now).

    I'm a big fan of First Person Shooters (notice I'm using the full name for the nuubs), driving games (especially the Colin Mcrae Series) and World of Warcraft.

    I have a couple of old vids on youtube from Colin Mcrae and a good few league matches recorded from Quake3Arena on my hdd.

    I've also recorded footage from Trackmania Nations which is a brilliant free driving game that reminds me very much of ReVolt (a classic):

    Anyway, have fun in the new forum....

    Looks like its only for windows users at the moment (no linux support booo).

    If I get time to reinstall windows I might give this a look. It doesn't look like they do a trial version either which kind of puts me off it a bit. Even the subscription behemoth WoW has a ten day trial.

    Looks like it'll be TrackMania for a while yet, runs like a dream on Ubuntu under Wine.
