If you want something you can actually use again, there is always http://www.classicshell.net/

I am praying this laptop doesn't die any time soon, the ones that run Windows 7 are actually going for more than Windows 8 now.

Huh. :? All laptops are capable of running W7, it's just that most new models come shipped with W8 now.

If W8 is such a problem, just blat it with W7.

To be honest I had my desktop 10 years, in that time I added 1 gb of RAM and put a Geforce 7600gt graphics card in it, I never used it for games, it was a surf and CV machine, so this laptop is actually more powerful than that was and portable, once I get used to Windows 8 I think I will be fine :lol:

it ran athlon 64 2800
2gb ram
Geforce 7600gt
250 gb hard drive :lol:

Tonight, I'm finally going to crack Dark Souls out of it's cellophane. Apparently it's a tough one but I'm feeling man enough for the challenge! :D



:evillaff: Good luck! Just remember to block and use a shield with 100% physical resistance. And look online for guides a lot :lol:

What's everyones favourite game music? I was listening to the Balder's Gate character selection music earlier - when I was a kid I used to just sit there making my characters for hours :lol:

As with many games of my childhood I never got much further than the into levels to the game... I completed it 2 years back though - have yet to complete the expansion though.

Nice voice Joe ^ :yes:

Of all time anything Zelda and Final Fantasy 10. At the moment the Devil May Cry remake soundtrack by Noisia as i'm partial to electronic music and it is just genius

Fuck sake now i want to play wind waker and i cant.

the new zombies map on cod is hard as fuck. We got to wave 18 and still had no real idea how to even get power on. I think we might actually have got close but we all ran out of ammo and got seperated and that was the end of it :lol: i made a heroic last stand in what i thought was a dead end corridor and got raped from behind. The other guys didnt even get together which was the whole point of me doing that :lol:

Okami, Kingdom Hearts 2, Silent Hill 2 and Bastion are some of my favourites from recent years.

Okami and Bastion are probably my favourites from that batch, and I honestly feel like Okami's soundtrack is one of the greatest of all time.
