Childhood Nostalgia, Repreive

Alternate title: Childhood Nostalgia my ass!

Well, there it is. My new obsession. No longer does DOS compel me. For my true calling is Maximum PC's game of the year: Battlefield II. The game is truly gorgeous.

Basically you run around a battlefield as one of several units. They fall into like 3 or 4 classes: assault, anti-tank, engineer, and medics. You have to take command points.

It's nearly impossible to get online, and frustrating to play over the LAN, but I LOVE IT!

Alright, that's it. Quick Haiku, written in the 20 minutes between me finishing my book after the PSSA's and lunch...

"Wait"

"Wait", they say, "Patience".
For it is a virtue. But,
time is dragging on.

See if anything to address with comments...

Yeah, okay: Jesse, I was trying to run DOS. If I had run Linux, that wouldn't have accomplished what I needed, which was DOS. But thank you anyway. Heh heh.

I've heard of Battlefield II before. Supposed to be good. It stands for Link of the Week? Boy, I thought it stood for Lord of the Wings. Like, a Wing Bowl champion or something.

I know you wanted DOS, but Linux is so awesome, I just had to mention it.
