well i woke up this morning and found i had a curious package waiting for me downstairs, the most curious thing about it was that it was from the BBC:
So i am intruieged, so i open the package to find a copy of the game Stolen in it:
I then remember a competion entered late one night a few weeks ago. I was listening to radio 5 live in the early hours, trying to get to sleep, and the IT section is on. I just catch the end competition which is to win the computer game Stolen, you had to give a brief, amusing, description of a film where a theft took place, the best one won. So i turn my pc on and enter with:
Lord of the Rings:
Four short fellows get into trouble trying to offload stollen jewlery
And W00T i won!!!!! So i am all happy now

Well its a different name, but pretty much the same game!!!
For those that dont know, Archmage is a turn base Massively Multiplayer strategy game where you are a mage in charge of a magical kingdom and you have to explore, build, cast spells, goto war and so on to advance your kingdom to being the best in the world. In its hayday (before it was taken down) there were about 60 000 players online, and (trying not to sound big headed) I was number 1 :D:D:D however the old game died 4 years ago.
However new people have started it again here: link
so come along and join in and i will see if i can remember how to play again

Well this is a game i have wasted many hours of my life playing, to be exact as i write this post it stands at 689.9 hours. However i hope this shows how addictive it is and how much pleasure i have gained from it.
JumpGate is a MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Roll Playing Game), well thats technically, to be honest its not massive as its more a community of good friends now, and the rollplaying is what you make of it; however its still a brilliant game.
It is a space simulater very similar to the old game Elite, but with far better graphics, much more to do and its all online angainst real players.
In the game you can fight, trade, mine, scout, run transports, claim sectors of the galexy for your own and much more, as well as joining squads and entering large galactic wars. The best bit is that unlike similar games, ie Eve, you actually fly your ship!!!
