    It seemed like a real watered down version of Splinter Cell. Lord knows I've been through multitudes of mediocre stealth action games. From what I saw, I was not going to try to work through all the kernel panics and game freezing to play it.

    The gameplay takes a few minutes to getting used to. Reminds me a bit of Deus Ex, though it is more like Metal Gear Solid (alas, the main character lacks all the fancy stuff and moves, which makes it kind of appealing)

    I don't know about Cold War. I only played a little of that from the demo. And then the demo always froze my Linux box. From what I've seen, I'm not very impressed. In fairness, I only got through like a few minutes of the demo.

    A few days ago, I re-installed Cold War on my machine, and been hooked. I had forgotten how good this game actually is! , so it gets another mention from me

    I'm sure some of these were mentioned, but I'd like to make sure Introversion's first 3 titles get mentioned: Uplink, Darwinia, and Defcon. All truly excellent, and incredibly atmospheric (especially Uplink, and Defcon).

    Still might be a good idea to keep an eye on the listed titles, though. Quite a few are as yet unnamed/unanounced, with more not currently listed due to NDAs.
    iD an Epic get away with those sums because of the support they offer and apparently the engines are extremely easy to work with. It's not just the features the end users get to see that count (think gimp to photoshop, they both have a similar feature set- photoshop costs a lot but is easier to work with (or so I'm told, I have no talent for art and so have never used photoshop :P)).

    I'm keeping an eye on it once you reminded me about the engine. Nothing on the official list yet- but, still, you never know in this silly business. I didn't think anyone would be resurrecting the good stuff from Interplay like GoG has done.

    ET:QuakeWars too but I have not really played that much lately.

    Is there still anyone playing Quake4 MP? Haven't checked in ages.
    I play vanilla quake4 mp somewhat regularly. Theres usually 2 or 3 servers for DM / TDM, and several others for Freezetag, which i dont like. There are many more servers but most of them are usually empty.

    By contrast, there's Unigine which is more on par with the likes of UE3 and the Crysis engine (and has a native Linux port, btw):
    Unfortunately, all the titles you mention that you want don't USE Unigine that I know of. (Seriously, enlighten us over in the wishlist thread- I'd love to add anyone that might be a win for us over there into the "looking into" list.)

    If they did, it'd be less of an uphill battle getting them- much like you'd think it'd be.
