Played out all of your PC games from Christmas and short on cash? Stop by your local CompUSA or similar software store, because you would be surprised at the number of quality
games there. Just today I saw in a $9 bargain-bin display of jewelcases the very excellent games Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2
, Need For Speed III: Hot Pursuit
, and Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri
. All of these games run fine on any speed machine, so there's no reason to pass them up just because they're 2-3 years old. If they kicked ass then, they kick ass now. End of story. I personally picked up Oni
and Star Wars: Jedi Knight
, because I missed them the first time around. It's a good time to be a PC gamer.
