    Goodman, try applying the latest patch from here: http://www.gamershell.com/news_26281.html

    I've heard that it fixes the issue with international players. However, I think online play is still limited to US users only. Single player should work fine though.
    Goodman says thanks.

    Another classic...

    Star Control II: The Ur-Quan Masters

    While it's not going to win any awards for great graphics today, this was one of the most popular games back in the day as they say. For those familiar with Star Control series not much needs to be said. In short, great storyline along with tons of star systems to explore and aliens to encounter. The current WinOS build is based on the source code of the 3DO port, but it is semi-actively updated and fully compatible with Windows OS. Approximate Size: 1MB

    Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun (Firestorm expansion is included)

    Noctis IV

    Now this game is something special. A more of a feat of procedural generation than actual game but still amazing nonetheless. It contains nearly 80 billion star systems to explore, many with planets to explore and land on. Did I mention the alien lifeforms or that the game is less than 2MB? Approximate Size: 1.8MB

    Alien Arena

    This online shooter is probably known to many already, but here it is. It's based on the heavily modified Quake-II engine which is pretty amazing considering that particular piece of software dates back to mid-to-late 1990s. Anyways, the game features decent graphics and tons maps as well as variety of gaming modes. Approximate Size: 220MB

    [Note: Some of the recent 7.xx versions feature ads so I will mark this title as ad-supported for those who are cautious about such things.]

    FreeOrion

    Although the creators claim the game is not a clone of Master of Orion series but simply inspired by those games, it does come close to clone status in some respects. In a good way of course. Overall a pretty good turn-based strategy game of galactic conquest. Approximate Size: 130MB

    I downloaded this game and it seems to have a huge bug in it. When you go to turn the paths to make them all go together, the game crashes. They just need to work that out and it should be all fine. Not too bad of a game if it wouldnt crash on that lol.

    After some delay, here is another one...

    Operation7

    This is another relatively standard online shooter with some pretty amazing weapon customization options. Graphics are not that great but considering the price they are fine. Requires signing up for an online account, but that is free as well. Approximate Size: 600MB+
