Hi. I'd like to shoot things and blow things up with my guy. We have a PS2 that's been gathering dust for years, largely due to the fact that the last time we tried to shoot things and blow things up it was a disaster. [more inside]
I just bought Final Fantasy XIV, and I can't get over 8-10 FPS, even on the title screen. My computer runs Windows 7 64-bit, has 6 gigs of RAM, has an ATI Radeon 5450 HD graphics card, has 180 gigs of hard drive space available, and is defragged once a week. I have tried running the game directly after a restart and with no background programs on. I found something online about Razer Game Booster, so I downloaded that and gave it a shot. Nothing changes the 8-10 frames per second I'm seeing. How can I fix this?

My sister loves playing co-op shooters. Can you recommend any? Our systems are the PS2, and a PC running Windows XP that was middle-of-the-road 3-5 years ago (so no Army of Two, thank you). Freeware/shareware/indie are great, but so are huge blockbusters. It just needs to have as long, good, co-op section.

Freeware or shareware games for old iMac (256MB, either 266 or 333Mhz)? Especially first person shooters?
I'm giving away an old tray-loading iMac (256MB, either 266 or 333Mhz, I really can't recall right now) to a friend and have loaded it up with productivity-related stuff. Now I'm looking for games I can download. Freeware and shareware, preferably, as opposed to warez (although if you care to recommend a NES/SNES/etc. emulator ...). In particular, is there a decent FPS I can download for this machine? [more inside]
