I bought the original Battlefield 1942, installed the Desert Combat mod and it's still the only game (online or not) that I play. I think I tried BF2, didn't buy it though, and wasn't convinced. As for DC, there's still a few servers around. Unfortunately some of them insist on having crappy maps on rotation. Apart from that, it's still great fun.
You are ignoring the fact that it seems like one highly intelligent and technology-developing species could probably not evolve in coexistence with another one on the same planet, at some point one would win and kill off the other one.
Probably not around here, but imagine an earth like planet, about 17 times bigger... Two separate intelligent species could evolve separately and not be aware of each other well until they get close to XX century earth-like tech. Remember we only got to really start moving around in the XVI century. And earth is a relatively small planet. Now imagine something much MUCH bigger.
Still, of course, we have to consider, what would happen if those 2 species met. Would we be talking about human-like vs over-developed-dolphin?
That depends on the cables!
There may be a need to repopulate the planet. That scenario renders about 99.9% of slashdotters pretty useless...

Do you mean: 'pump up kicks?!
- D: Dradis contact! Oh frack! A cylon base ship just jumped in on top of us...
- Admiral Adama: If only it was full of number sixes...
- Colonel Tigh: Oh man, I'd give my right eye for that!
Oh crap! Sorry guys... I'm having those number six dreams *again*.
Truth is, it's probable just The Stig in the trunk, with a laptop.
How can I schedule an interview with a 419 scammer, and am I allowed to bring a baseball bat?
Great, so you'll loose all the money you have with you AND a baseball bat...
Hating NASA is like a religion these days. Anything NASA does is bad. No matter.
That's what they get for using MS software.
Incidently, I gotta ask, what comes after Karma: Terrible, even when harmless jokes are involved?
Now she does.
My fault, I read it here and... well, I talk while I sleep...
This is an outrageous insult to the Dutch people. Expect to see a lot of burning embassies in the news soon.
You're missing the point. This means there were once trees on the moon!
Big Mean Idiots?
