    Can't get into CSS at all so I suppose I'm in the clear. I'm hooked on something milder though: COD2. :(

    i play CSS alot more than i do BF2 nowadays. CSS is something i can always go back to, it is annoying when you have a bad game, and i can completely see how people who arent very good must hate it. But im fairly competent so its pretty good fun, i feel its more skillful that other FPS games. It hasnt taken over my life, gaming as a whole has

    I've kicked css too. It was good fun when I wanted it to be, but meh, I have a life now.

    shame really, I got quite good :(

    I'm getting rather addicted to it, although it's been the half term so that's given me more time to play it when i've been in, but i think going back into the school routine will be a lot better for me.

    ho hum.

    Im trying to, I only play for 2-3 hours a day now. How I find the time to create my own CSS maps as well is beyond me, as I spend the same amount of time doing that each day as well.

    yea "upgrades make you play better" ( lol )
    120 quid soundcard, 40 quid headset, 160 quid GPU, 180 quid RAM... im a skint studant and its money i dnt really have lol :p

    for CSS being such a popular game... i really dont know anyone who plays it !
    obviously all my friends in thew clan but theyre from all over the world... there seems to be no one in RL who plays... or maybe they got to thwe same stage as me and didnt really emerge into the outdoors ? lol

    still feels a bit naff when im on TS and i can hear "the bomb has been defused" through someones mic. and i see my mates on xfire and their scores etc lol.


    now i need a recreational game. none adictive... maybe its between hitman contracts, quake 4 and far cry at the moment :p

    still getting my medusa 5.1 tomorrow though :p lol

    I kicked my CS:S addiction almost a year ago. I just started playing WoW and BF2 in unhealthy amounts.
