SOME local ISPs DONT work for my Xbox360 to play online - so you might have the same problem with PS3... namely my 3meg connection HATES the xbox - so I use the slower ISP for the Xbox... the sad thing is that you are usually bound to a contract before you have time to test out each and every toy in your house with the ISP...

I have seen so much conflict while in the Philippines - amazingly 99% of it was merely online computer experiences :D

That reminds me to share an email I sent to Murf... about what FREE games to play - heres the copy and paste of that email:

G force Graphics Card


IN gaming there are only 2 graphics cards. G-Force is at the top of the list with teh other being \"ATI\" so you are ok - escpecially if its a Geforce 4 or newer

There are MANY categories of games - the Pharoah one you mention falls under the category of \"SIM\"/\"Simulation\" type games... Others in this category include but are not limited to

Sim City - the ones who pioneered the SIM revolution back in 1989.
The first version looked like this in 1989


Today Sim City part 4 looks like


Now yes, there are many different types including the Egypt one you played - and a whole line under the ... TYCOON name...  even \"Amusement park Tycoon\" ones and I saw just last week a JAIL SIM called Prison Tycoon! You you can manage your own prison - that was a funny one!

 
LINKS TO PLAY FOR FREE:
SIM CITY is now FREE at http://simcity.ea.com/play/simcity_classic.php

Another type of game is the ONLINE MMO (or multiplayer games) where you can meet REAL people who are playing at a PC that exact moment and join with them for treasure or fight against them. There is EVERYTHING MMO from Racing cars to DANCING ONLINE to Military spcial ops battles to Dungeons and Dragons to Karate and all 100% FREE !!!

The ONLINE MMO\'s is where I spend most of my attention. They are ALL FREE but stay in business because you can BUY upgrades online for your game.... such as DOuble treasure for a day at around $1 or a new sword for 25 cents... it may sound small but when you have 100,000 people who can potentially buy those items the \'micro-transactions\' really add up.

The Filipino games people online speak Tagalog but once you get past that the game play is AWESOME try here:
http://www.e-games.com.ph
and
http://cabal.e-games.com.ph

to get free games like my wifes favorite: MULTIPLAYER DANCING ONLINE ! she spent P100 to buy new clothes and sunglasses for her dancer - you can buy items from your cellphone too by sending a txt !  ;D

Screen shot shows 16 people dancing together in a \'battle\'


If you want military action - its in Philippines too ! http://op7.com.ph/
This is one of the TOP military games - but im not too into shooting if theres no magic and spells involved


One of my favorites is CABAL http://cabal.e-games.com.ph
Amazing graphics for a FREE game


Another type of online game is the Yahoo games type - checkers, scrabble, chess http://games.yahoo.com/free-games

Personally I just started Dungeons and Dragons online this month... It was $15 a month to play for the past 3 years... now its 100% FREE ! at http://www.ddo.com The only problem is that you have to REGISTER from a computer in USA (Philippines is outside their supported area) so I just called a family member and they filled out the 1 page form in under 1 minute and I was playing after a 1 hr download here in Philippines!

I decided to pay about $8 for new armor and weapons so I just called the DnD company (which happens to be the same one that released the original pen and paper game in the 80\'s) I told them im in Philippines and cant order online. They said MANY people out of the USA play and just call in anytime I need to order - they do it all the time ! Thats nice to hear

This one sticks almost 100% to the official DnD rule books so its nice for those who played DnD with a pencil, dice and paper back in the 80\'s like I did...


I should really wrote a book about gaming... Im not THE best gamer - but I have entered many contests and always end up just 1 place too far behind to get a prize ! (#2 worldwide in Everquest 2 after launch and again #2 worldwide for World of Warcraft - which means mere mediocrity... #1 gets freebies... all #2\'s get is \"gratz\" from their whole server - pffft)  :P

Im not sure about anything PS3 because I was already in RP when PS3 launched in USA and thus never got one. You will find the most local support for Nintendo Wii and a small following for Xbox360 consoles.

I have seen PS3\'s forsale here but when a new title is released you may have to wait longer than you expect to find it in stock somewhere. Wii and Xbox360 - you find those anywhere you find .... Everything else DVD wise...... and

The best people to ask about local support/availability would be a retail gaming chain called \"DataBlitz\" any new title can be reserved through them and you get it on the day its released in USA ! My guess is on releae day they get around 5 -10 copies of a new title... If your name is NOT on their list - it could be weeks before you are playing!

From the setup and inventory I would guess DataBlitz is affiliated with GAMESTOP of USA.... Its the best quality local franchise you will find for gaming consoles.

Thanks for the heads up on the Dungeons and Dragons online have to REGISTER from a computer in USA. I had been trying to set up an account and it would only say their was conflict with my information, and then would reject me. Now I know what to do to set it up now, Thanks.
Some say wonder why? Others say why wonder?
Some say the glass is half full. Others say the glass is half empty.

I wonder why that damn glass is twice as big as it needs to be !!!

Wow is nice... (World of Warcraft ONLINE - not to be confused with plain WARCRAFT or DOTA - because Warcraft III supports about 10 people at once playnig.... WOW has over 11 million ACTIVE subscribers who can be online at once and talk to each other - or kill them...)

I have a big GRIPE with Warcraft Online thou -

Out of that 11 million people I made #2 worldwide for my Profession there... and I missed #1 because I fell asleep at the PC for about 3 hrs...

Arrrrghh... Oh well... My character panel shows SERVER FIRST ... but worldwide would have been nice...

I will get that one when the Cataclysm expansion is launched then.... and drop another 30000 gold for Professions...
My guild still has 3 bosses to down in Icecrown Citadel... THEY NEED TO GET THE LARD OUT !

heh... I said \"lard\"

heheh...
I just got a lifetime subscription for Star Trek Online - so I never have to pay for that one again - and its only 1 week old and the NUMBER ONE selling game in the UK right now...

Just like Warcraft ONLINE in space...

MAKE IT SO NUMBER ONE !

WOW! You\'re big time! Once I started earning real gold I rebate 5% to customers, really freaks some of out!
My whole game experience is geared to auction house business. My toons are low level and working the ponzi.

Heh - Buying and selling can be a game in itself ! Mighty fun too....

If you ever feel like Wold of Warcraft Online and dont have your good PC to play it - every chain of the cafe called STATION 168 (baguio, manila and maybe a dozen other locations) has it installed on every machne !

Some of the computers there rival my own personal system - I guess thats why its $1 per hr to play there - ooh and they have waitresses to bring you food/drinks to your table as you play 24 hrs a day.

WoW! That is really cool. Lot\'s better than sitting in a waiting room watching a re-run of McGiver dubbed into Tagalog on the TV. Had to do that while my wife and her friend went through their physical cert for nursing job. They broke an hour for lunch and we were walking to a nearby mall. These street guys were calling out \"hey joe!), calling me \"big time\" (2 pretty ladies) and one was trying to sell me Cialis!

Been playing Everquest for a few years.  For quite a few of them my main focus was trying to see how much plat I could legally make (several million).  Never tried WoW. . . cant afford the time to play 2 MMO\'s

Been playing Everquest for a few years.

Memories of pain... lol... #2 worldwide on Everquest II as well... back on server: Grobb aka Najena as teh servers 1st max Sage and worldwide #2 sage... Crafted for Malice/Pandemic...

I missed my Erudite crafting to gain levels and having to actually WORK to do it... in wow you push the button and your item is completed !

In Everquest II if you did it wrong you made a lesser quality item or even DIED ! hahah that was nice !

Pre - Planes of Justice days I was on Everquest 1 as well... Got my Shaman epic before I discovered guilds - solo at lvl 50/51 - Camping PoF for weeks on end with my Barb/Shm promising to bring good buffs ! lol ... to get a space in a raid ! those were the days ! I prefer Everquest 1 Erudites to Everquest 2 - when they became aliens ! that sucked big time...

I DONT WANT TO BE A STINKIN ALIEN !

Now in Warcraft raiding the top content and nothing to kill because I already have the top gear in many slots... its kinda boring... so im just waiting for the next expansion - called Cataclysm...

And playing Star Trek Online when I can - but it kinda sux (im hoping they expand/fix it but its brand new...) ... I have a lifetime membership for Star Trek thou - so I can play and stop anything and not feel im wating $15 a month !

I wasnt sure what Burget Shop 2 was so I had to google it ... that upgrade is less than $7 so its not a bad price BUT... BUT...

What caught my eye was that it appears to be one of those games that you can play in a web browser - like the popular ones such as FARMVILLE, MAFIA WARS, CAFE WORLD or what have you.

Interestingly they sometimes have multi-player elements - where you can visit another users store etc... and now ... the next GENERATION OF BROWSER GAME has been announced ....

Announced JUST LAST WEEK is a Full multiplayer MMORPG in a browser game - BATTLESTAR GALLACTICA ! Shocking... all made possible by the succes of those smaller games....

If they never succeeded no big company would have ever developed a cult classic liek battlestar gallactica as a \"browser only\" game...

NOTE: AOL tried it years ago - runescape did it (with fail graphics but financial success)
