Hey all, my latest gig is with Gear Diary ... and I have just started a series called 'Netbook Gamer' about ... well, gaming on a netbook.

My first article is about Jedi Knight. Check it out here (http://www.geardiary.com/2009/09/25/the-netbook-gamer-star-wars-jedi-knight-1997-fps/).

The are twenty-one levels in the game including the Jedi battles, but that number is deceptive. The game includes some of the most massive areas I have ever encountered in a game, many of which remain exhausting and daunting to traverse. It also includes some of the most amazing levels ever – perhaps not so surprising given how highly it was regarded. The Falling Ship remains a tremendous challenge to this day – you are never sure exactly where you are or where you are going because the ship is … well, falling!

Very cool. My favorite level is still the Fuel Station by far. And err.. I tried running this on my netbook awhile ago, but it would crash to desktop when it got past the FMV. Blerg. But I will try again...

Hmmm ... I had no problem on my HP 2133 or my Lenovo s10 ... and I've done CD on both, and also the new Steam version on the s10.
