So I tried Enemy Territory and it runs fine. The mouse movements sometimes seem a bit choppy but I think that is because my wireless mouse's response time isn't good enough. The only problem I have with the game is that I don't know what the heck is going on in most levels. I decided to play Axis first because they usually defend and that sounded easier to me than attacking. But there's always so much going on and there's so many objectives and the maps are really complex.

What I'm really saying is: I got killed all the time. Usually from behind. The other problem was that at first I didn't know how to tell Axis and Allies apart. Of course I didn't want to be a team killer so I basically had to wait until the guy shot me to figure out if he was an enemy or not. I think I got it now (Allies have brown uniforms and Axis blackish ones). I still find it hard to tell them apart though. And I still don't have any idea what the hell is going on most of the time. I wish I could find me a newbie server where nobody knows what they're doing.

You should try a game called Strong Hold. Easy to use, great for a begginer.

Just a quick question, what is your site all about?

Is it just an ongoing gaming diary?

No, it’s just my personal weblog. Since I’m a gamer though I tend to write about games from time to time :)

By the way, what is the type and spec of your digital camera? I am going to get one and after having a look at some of the photos I wouldn’t mind your version!

David: What kind of games do you like?
My camera is a Sony DSC P-5. It’s not the best camera I know but it’s small and that is why I bought it. Most of the pictures on my site have been touched up a bit in Photoshop because the pictures tend to be slightly blurry and not saturated enough when they come out of the camera. I guess most digital cameras have that problem though.

Lena: At your age you shouldn’t play Enemy Territory anyway :) It’s hard to recommend games when I don’t know what kind of games you like.

At the moment I am really into Morrowind, its not the type of game I usually go for. I really got into Soldier of Fortune 1, I played that all the time. I think its better than the second for online gaming. Splinter cell, still playing that. Medal of Honor Allied Assult, great fun. Wolfenstein, love the first person shoot ‘em ups!! What do you like?

What do you do for a living, I know you are currently looking for a job and I know how hard and soul destroying that can be. You will be fine! So, what type of skill area are you in?

I used to play Counter Strike a lot. After that I never really found an FPS I liked. I tried the BF1942 demo though I really liked it. I haven’t bought the full game yet. But I’d like to try that one. Enemy Territory also looks like it could be fun. I like that the mission isn’t just about planting/defusing bombs like it was in Counter Strike. The only problem is that the complexity makes it harder for newbies. I also wish I could find a strategy game that was fun in multiplayer. Warcraft III and Civ III didn’t do much for me…

Job stuff: I’m a computer scientist and am looking for an internet related job, i.e. webdesign, java and the like. What I really want to do though is be a game developer.

Ack! is there a way I can shorten that down? Anyway your last post reminded me of this. I should have forwarded it to you a long time ago, sorry about that.

You should do a course in Animation.
