Attention everyone, we are planning to launch a few high-end Digital Storm Gaming servers for everyone! You can join up and play against Digital Storm employee's, customers, or use it to play with friends.

We will hold tournaments with prizes too. Imagine how great this can be.
 
Now, what games would everyone like us to host?

4261, time to upgrade to UT2004.  I think you're the only one playing 2k3.  In fact, I would recommend:
BF2 (and all expansions etc)
BF2142
Counterstrike Source
and...
QUAKE 3!!!!!!  :-P

Guys check it out.  There are only a few FPS game servers that one can host without seeing the same thing over and over again. 
 
There should only be one or 2 games where everyone runs around in room and shoots everyone.  Boring.  Keep it simple.  Stick with UT2k4 and Quake for that.

BF2/2142 are cool squad based games where 32 people square off with 32 people, setup in squads and defend flags while the other team comes in (in squads) and capture flags.  These type games are fun because you develop a strategy as well as shoot the heck out of each other.
 
All other games are the same games... wash-rinse-repeat.

Counter Strike is a billion times better then Battlefield for objective and deathmatch. It's also so much easier to get into, understand, and work together.

BF2142 is a terrible because it uses gamespy and punkbuster when the game's only selling point is multiplayer. The load times are 1-2 minutes which is very sad.

BF2142 is also a lot more boring compared to CS, Quake, UT, Halo.. The maps are so huge with several objective points making everyone spread so thin (no hot spot on map). And the headaches I get playing in servers full of morons and then taking 4 minutes to switch to another server...

Everything in this world is rinse and repeat. We have went through every possible idea... there is no new ideas left in the world.

Counter Strike = best FPS multiplayer, nothing comes close to it..

I'm sad that Strike Force didn't catch on like Counter Strike did.
Sure, Counter Strike came first, but Strike Force was so much better. Unhappy

I'm a FPS player, so those are the games I like playing online. Here's what I like to play:
 
FEAR
GRAW 2
SWAT 4
COD
MOH
 
BTW, what's all this talk about Counter Strike? I downloaded the game when it was free and wasn't really all that impressed with it. Should I get the retail version and give it a go? Is it like SWAT? Help a noob out, will ya?

CS:S would be nice but BF2 would be even better. The only problem is getting enought people to play in a 64-32 players server.

You can still do a 2 vs 2 in CS:S.
Please accept my apologies for any grammar errors. English is not my first language and I'm currently learning it.

That's when the fun begins!
I think it will be great having a couple servers. I'm a bit rusty on the FPS's but if you put up a server you can bet I will probably get a hold of whatever game(s) being hosted. I've been meaning to try to get back into Counter Strike here soon.

In case of doubt, make it sound convincing.

Hey guys, actually I just signed up and need to call you fellas about some parts anyways....
 
But I noticed someone mentioned BF2142!
 
Check out one of my sites, www.conflict2142.com
 
We currently are one of the largest Battlefield2142 Tournaments and were the first to officially release a custom mod for BF2142 including blood spray, the hover vehicles now hover over water not just land, enhanced/tweaked weapons and vehicles plus soon to come - JETS! Our Mod team also were the first to make Karkand from BF2 for BF2142. The video is still up on our front page if you would like to view it or also we have been featured on Battlefield Podcast in episodes 50 & 62!
 
If anyone is interested in a partnership or us helping you to promote your servers then please throw me a PM here and I'll reply asap. I have had nothing but a great computer since the day I ordered, it has not given me ANY problems until recently (just the neons went out is all!) and it is nothing major. Love my machine and love your company, so like I said - If I can be of any help just let me know.
 
Digital Storm FTW!!!!

Okay, so what exactly does "FTW" mean? The only thing that comes to my mind is something "The World" would probably rather not have done to it.

What about some Homeworld and Homeworld 2?  Once I get my system, like to give it a try.  Also, Operation Flashpoint.  I think that game can do that.  I'll have to check once I get my new 'puter in.  It's on the way!  Be here Wed.Tongue
