I like Age Of Empires 2, and I too need the expansion. I dont play it anymore, cuz its only fun online and the Microsoft Gaming Zone rated deathmatch rooms are completely empty. I guess everyone either went to the AOE2:The Conquerors deathmatches or just stopped playing it, so with no one online to play with, I just dont play it anymore.
Has anyone played X-Plane? I have seen it at computer game stores and at Walmart. My friend got it through mail order and made me a copy. Unfortunately, I can't play it as it requires a Pentium 3 and I have a Pentium 2. I loaded it and tried to play it (I had a US Airways A330 on the runway at MSP). I tried to take off and it went very slow, the frame rate was like 1 frame every 3 seconds. It sounds interesting because it has a variety of commercial airplanes instead of a couple like FS2000 has, and it has real international airports, not small municipal ones.
