Is this thread still on?

I'm very fidgety. But I like to watch stuff, like movies and anime and so on. But I'm really fidgety. For the lack of anything to do with my hands while watching stuff, I have now more or less exhausted the possibilities of solitaire. What I'd like is a game to fidget with while I watch something. Preferably something without sound that won't kill itself if I suddenly stop playing to watch, and simple enough that won't make me drop the watching to focus entirely on it.

Any luck?

If you don't already have a handheld (like a PSP or a DS) get one. If you do, get some turn-based strategy games for those.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2 (DS)
Advanced War Series (Gameboy Advance/DS)
Final Fantasy Tactics (PSP)
.. I'm not well versed enough in the PSP realm to know what else they have, but I'm sure it's there. With turn based games especially, sound usually isn't that important.

Alternately, get something like those interlocking wood puzzles or Tavern/Blacksmith Puzzles as that will give you something to do with your hands that might not even require your full attention.

I imagine there are plenty of flash game type things that meet your requirements. Stuff like Bejeweled, simple puzzle type games.

I just finished playing Red Alert 3 for the second time (Hard mode instead of Medium as I did the first time) and I'm going to move onto something else. I look to the xkcd crowd to help suggest something, options I have are:

1) Final Fantasy 7 (for the nth time, but it's so good I keep going back to it)
2) XBox or 360 game, I like RPGs and some FPSs
3) PC game, I prefer RTS on PC
4) PS2 game, Similar to XBox/360

I have a Gamecube and access to a Wii but I don't really want to play either console.

You know, I've always had a craving for a kind of strategy game that I don't think I've ever found. No need to have all of these characteristics in the same game, but I'm just listing a few things I've looked for in games: complex resource management (Settlers II comes to mind); building complex things, mechanisms, buildings, connecting things, creating networks of stuff, making stuff work, making stuff that doesn't work and learning how to fix it; making mistakes and facing its consequences (i.e. I'm beginning to hate stuff like Call of Duty in which you have to try millions of times to do EXACTLY what it expects you to do. I'd like to make decisions that will largely affect the game later on, instead of being bullied into doing ONLY what it wants me to do); having little to NO focus on war and combat (competition is ok, but it'd be better to have NO war. I like focusing on creating and constructing things, not on destroying them).

Stuff that gets pretty close to that are Chris Sawyer's games, i.e. Transport Tycoon and Rollercoaster Tycoon - both of which RULE and are immensely fun to play. I'd like something like that, but bigger, grander, more complex and exciting. Civilization has too much war (sometimes it gives me no other option) and is way too abstract. I like puttng my hands on the real stuff and working them out. I like resource management. I like producing things, transforming one thing into the other and making networks of that stuff (yeah, like Settlers, but with a little more control). Some games seem to boast on how it has only ONE resource to handle and little to no micromanagement. I basically want the opposite. And, if possible, no combat and no war. I can't stress that enough.

War and combat CAN be fun, though, if I can think before acting. I hate real time strategies that rely on my skill of being fast and accurate enough with my clicking. If it's more tactical, it's ok.

I know, it's A LOT of stuff. I just let my imagination fly here, because I don't do that too often. :)

EDIT: Don't need to be a new, ultra-modern game with supah-kewl graphics. But, please, NO Dwarf Fortress. Minimalism is ok, but that thing hurts my eyes.

There are tilesets for DF.....

That said, did you ever give the old Railroad Tycoon a go? There's also Open Transport Tycoon which apparently has some upgrades to it. Simutranss is another transport oriented simulator. There's Democracy and it's sequel which I keep hearing things about and should really try one of these days...
Might look in to Majesty, but that might be more combat oriented than what you're looking for.

I've played Railroad Tycoon Deluxe some years ago and I liked it. Never managed to get too deep into it, but I might try. As for OpenTTD, yeah, that's been my choice for playing Transport Tycoon. I really liked the improvements. I also remember hearing about Simutrans, but I've given a look at the main page and I'm really interested now. I'll try the suggestions as soon as I can. Thanks a lot! :)

PS: Yeah, I tried the Dwarf Fortress tilesets, but my gripe is with how there's a million billion things to look out for on those cluttered confusing maps. And I have played ASCII roguelike games, without having that problem.

The way I finally learned DF was to basically just ignore everything I didn't understand. Which meant my first dozen fortresses failed in spectacular manners. (Which is kinda the point)

You might even want to edit the data\init\init.txt file to change
[VARIED_GROUND_TILES:YES] to
[VARIED_GROUND_TILES:NO]

So that the ground is just displayed as . instead of a mix of ,.'` which may help the cluttered aspect of it. Of course, if you're using a tileset, I don't think that even applies.

Really, just start a fortress and concentrate on understanding how farming works. Screw everything else, just get to where you understand how fields work and how to operate them for each season. Then on your next fortress, start in on figuring out just a few workshops - mason's, carpenter's, and craftsdwarf's are good ones to start on - masonry being how pretty much every piece of furniture, doors, floodgates, hatches and the like that isn't a bed is made, carpentry on how bins, barrels, buckets, and beds work. Craftsdwarf would be the most complex of those, simply due to the number of materials and professions involved in it (Bonecarving, Woodcarving, and Stonecarving)

Then there's the chains... You need a Butcher's shop to get raw skin (and meat and bones, but we'll get to that).. you need a tanner's shop to turn the raw skin into leather, and you need leather for the (wait for it..) leatherworker's shop. Getting cloth is even more complicated if you aren't sure what to do - basically, you grow Pig Tails in a field, build a Farmer's Workshop and Process Plants (not to bags, barrels, or vials, just standard processing) to make Pig Tail Thread. You then need a loom and a dwarven weaver to weave the thread into cloth... finally you have Pig Tail Cloth suitable for the Clothmaker's shop.

Let's not even get started on Glassmaking or Metalworking just yet.....

I guess what I'm saying is that if you fire up DF and try to understand everything all at once, you're going to fail. Your fortress will start starving to death, some dwarves will die, and even if you fix the immediate starvation problem, in a small fortress one death when everyone else is just content can start off a depression spiral that ends with dwarves going insane - which ends in more deaths (either via suicide or homicide) which just furthers the depression and results in the entire fortress going from what appeared to be a happy, healthy workforce of 45 to a depressed, insane trio of dwarves running around babbling until they finally throw themselves into a river and drown.

If you have any kind of fondness for those games, you must play Hotel Dusk: Room 215. It is brilliant. Plus it's been re-released on a budget label. Its predecessor, Trace Memory, is not quite as well regarded.

The Pheonix Wright (and Apollo Justice) games are also very much point 'n' click games that you will surely enjoy.

Apparently some people do like Time Hollow, but the reviews it has gotten are rather lackluster.

Hotel Dusk looks very interesting. Unfortunately, we don't have any kind of "butget label" thing for DS games here in Finland, the cheapest I could find was 35€. But I will definitely get that game later.

Babam, the problem here is that there is a venn diagram involved.

Some games are MMOs,
Some games are Free

The number of free MMOs are very small (most have paid-features you "have" to pay for, or it is not worth playing the game at all).

Of the games that I can think of that even come close, your options would be:
Gunz the duel
Combat Arms
Gunbound
Rakion
Infantry Online

Of these, almost all of them require you to "buy" in-game items if you want to be competitive (gunz doesn't let you get the best guns. gunbound doesn't let you get the best equipment, rakion doesn't let you get the best equipment). And all of these are korean games (koreans love their "free, but not really" MMOs).

Your best bet would be "infantry online". It is a top-down capture the flag (or kill the man with the ball, or capture the point, or any number of other competative modes), 3rd person shooter. All PvP focused, absolutely free, able to run on a 1.5ghz computer with 32 megs of video memory at full settings and still looking rather good, and really rather fun.

Actually, it's much simpler than Mr. Dissident is making it seems.
All MMOs are in one of the following categories:
Fun
Free
Neither

You can find MMOs in all of those categories that have the other characteristics.

This is, of course, assuming you mean MMO in the traditional sense. If not, Quake Live is coming soon. As is Battlefield Heroes.

FreeQaz you have three options that I know of
Subspace/Continuum: http://www.getcontinuum.com/ (some levels have MMORPG elements, and it is the closest gameplay-wise to EV:Nova
Hostile Space: https://www.hostilespace.com/Portal/browserreq.asp (MMORPG set in a 2d space game. But does not have similar controls to EV:Nova
Solaris Online: http://www.solarisgame.com (honestly, haven't had a chance to sit down and play it, but they say they are like subspace, and found it recently on one of my open-beta listings).

I'm looking for a good single-player game for the Wii. I've played (and enjoyed) Twilight Princess, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Paper Mario, Metroid Prime 3, Okami, and Zack & Wiki. I'm not really into FPSs, but otherwise I'm flexible.

Suggestions?

I want to get The Orange Box and was wondering wheter I should buy the physical game or buy it through steam. Seeing as how it's $20 in the store comprared to $30 online, I'm thinking buying from the store would be better. Plus, there's the advantage of actually having the CD and such. I'm just wondering if there is any compelling reason why it would be better the other way.

If you can get the physical copy cheaper, do so. There is no difference between the versions. In fact, you can just input the CD keys from the physical box and snap the disks in two and it will be quite-literally the same as if you just bought it online (it adds them to your account, and steam allows you to re-install any program added to your account from their servers).

Not that you should break the phyiscal copy, just that its the exact same thing... Ah, you get my point.

And of course even if you install it from discs, you'll have to download several hundred megabytes worth of updates before you can play.

Twenty dollars! What a bargain! You might want to spend the savings on Aquaria, a smashing game that recently appeared on Steam that is available for $15.99 until the end of the year. I've seen it compared to Super Metroid. (The $39 pre-Steam price tag might have hindered its popularity until now.)

My brother and I are looking for a game to play with each other over the Internet, and I was wondering if any of you could recommend one. It would have to run on Windows XP and an Intel Mac, which probably limits the selection considerably. We would prefer something like Myst 1-4, puzzle games where there isn't any time pressure, or something turn-based. Really, anything where it's easy for two people to stay in the same tracks would be good, where one of us could say after the fact, "I flipped the amber lever," and the other person could just click the amber lever and receive the same results. Alternatively, things we could play cooperatively, like Diablo 2, would work.

So cross-platform thing where it's easy to follow the leader or play cooperatively. If it has really low system requirements, I could just run it on a virtual machine, actually, so that would be as good as cross-platform. Any ideas?

A few of my favorite puzzle games of all time sound right up your alley, but they're all quite old and will probably require emulation on someone's part. There's a freeware Mac emulator for Windows linked from the first game, so that's worth a try. Anyway, the games are System's Twilight, 3 in Three, and The Fool's Errand.

Deadly Rooms of Death is probably worth a look too, and is also better supported on the systems you're running. I can recommend some level sets if you'd like.

Preferably something without sound that won't kill itself if I suddenly stop playing to watch, and simple enough that won't make me drop the watching to focus entirely on it.

Any luck?


Peggle I've linked the free extreme version with valve themed levels.

As for single player games on the Wii, I got really hooked on Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn, and now Shadow Dragon on the DS. They don't use any of the fancy features of the wiimote but if you like turn based RPG combat games, they are rather good.

Guess I whould have told you before, but I only have a PC. I could maybe find my old Game Boy Color, but I think I'd rather syick with computer games. Will look into Bioshock and Bionic Commando though.

Don't know if anyone's recommended this, but it's hands down the hardest mmo/fps game out there: its vertical learning curve makes EVE look like Bejewelled. Can be very frustrating, there's guys playing have more stick time in ME 109s than real WWII aces...and no matter how good you get, a day one player can still kill you, or a destroyer can drop a 5" shell on you from 3 klicks away...you get access to more equipment, but you don't really level up, so your toons are ultimately only as good as you are.

No hit points, no health packs, no body armor, no bunny hopping, no circlestrafing; real physics and drivable historic tanks and aircraft models, huge map of N. Europe in 1/2 scale.

They often have free trials.

My handle's the same over there, so if you log in Axis, I'll do my level best to kill you this map.

Since I just got it last week, and I've playing avidly and throughly enjoying (although I didn't like the #), I recommend Persona 4. Lovable characters, great story (although a bit cliché sometimes) with nice dialogs. And not too boring.

Professor Leyton and the curious village is a pretty nice DS game.

the puzzles are all easy, it's aimed at kids after all, but somehow it's quite compelling.
