One of the attractions for me building a HTPC was the thought of big screen, surround sound, gaming action so can anyone help with a couple of things? 1. Is it possible to initiate Games from within the MCE2005 environment? My guess is no but if there is, I'd like to know how to do it please. 2. What would gamers suggest I use to control a game from my settee? I nearly bought a cordless Logitech rumble game pad for a PC which seemed pretty trick. I've a Saito rumble joystick with a USB cable I can use but cords..... Across the living room...... . 3. I realise favourite games are pretty subjective but any recommendations for a fairly plain shoot to kill type game? You know, gun in hand, things in front of you that you have to shoot, that kind of thing. I've not played games since a game called Turrican, probably about half a million years (and a marriage) ago Thanks, Jon.
