You got me there :(
I even just got the free codeweavers gaming thing yesterday and I should 
have remembered that.  At the time I wrote that I did not have my morning 
coffee.  That's my story and I'm sticking with it!  What I should have 
said is that the very latest games will probably not run very well without 
subscription software or some tweaking in wine.  I have gotten some older 
games running pretty much OK.  I also have not put in a lot of time in it 
so I am sure it can be done better.  And there is always DosBox for the 
really old ones.  I can still play Doom 2. (now if I can ever shoot some 
rockets into that mouth at the end I can actually finish it)
