Well, music has a Currently Listening thread, so games needs a Currently Playing thread.

Command & Conquer 4 (http://store.steampowered.com/app/47700/). Take C&C, remove anything remotely C&C and add Company of Heroes-styled gameplay. Mix and serve.

Oh, and RPG elements. Because every game needs RPG elements now, right?

Morrowind, one of my favorite games.

I'm actually looking forward to Skyrim even though it looks like an action RPG and I never played a mainly fighter character in any other Elder Scrolls.

Great thread idea, Danny.

Look at you, hacker -

panting and sweating as you run through my corridors.
How can you challenge a perfect, immortal machine?

I for one welcome the coming of our Dark Lady of Cyberspace to lift our wretched species from its miserable slough.

...Anyhow...

I'm currently playing System Shock, a grand old 90's shooter/rpg hybrid that just about defines the word classic.

For anyone who's interested, I suggest you try it.

Check it out here...
http://www.systemshock.org/index.php?PHPSESSID=3b584248b7e97d27020194ec3d4f1aad&topic=211 (http://www.systemshock.org/index.php?PHPSESSID=3b584248b7e97d27020194ec3d4f1aad&topic=211)
It's been made into a convenient "portable" module that you can upload to a USB stick and take with you wherever you go.

And just so we're clear, this Portable project caught the attention of one of System Shock's leading team members, Robert "Xemu" Fermier. He gave this project his okay and has even praised it.

I'm a big fan of System Shock 2, but I've never played Shock 1 because it's always been incredibly hard to get hold of, this might actually be just what I need to actually play it. I wish they'd do a remake though.. or a third game by Looking Glass.

Anyway.. currently playing Dead Space Extraction on PSwee, it's an on-rails shooter which acts as a prequel to the first game. It's pretty so far although I'm not used to having my movement taken away, I hate trying to grab stuff quickly with kinesis only for the camera to move suddenly and I can't face the right way again. Really damn annoying when you need to solve puzzles whilst enemies keep spawning and you have to fend them off whilst stationary, you'd be able to move if it was real!

Well it is an on-rails game. You could say that in a first person shooter if it was real you would be able to flip the enemies off before shooting them.

Eheheh, I'm not a OMG!!Greffixks! whorebag, but even I was wee bit disappointed when I first played.

funnily enough (if I'm remembering right) even back when it was released, SS2 got a bit grumbling for its polygonal graphics. They were sub-par even back then.

Take the character models in Thief II; they're primitive by today's standards, but they still do a good job of representing what they supposed.

SS2 was released in 1999, only one year prior to Thief 2. Yet the difference in model quality is striking. It's odd that there's such a stark disparity.

I'm a big fan of System Shock 2, but I've never played Shock 1 because it's always been incredibly hard to get hold of, this might actually be just what I need to actually play it. I wish they'd do a remake though.. or a third game by Looking Glass.

Even luckier for you, this version of the System Shock Portable module supports mouselook, quite a quaNtum leap for the game.
In case you weren't aware, SS1 was a pre-mouselook game. You could use the mouse to aim and shoot, but the screen would not move with you.
I actually played and completed the game twice before without mouselook before this update and didn't think it was that bad. The game was so good that I was able to adapt to the lack of mouselook.
The mod lets you switch between mouselook and regular interactive functions by pressing E. Why the need to switch? Because the mouselook one crippling weakness is that it's horrible to use in the Cyberspace Hubs. The mouselooking in the VR hubs is really loose and your view kind of floats...it's kind of hard to describe.
Bottom line, use mouselook in the "real world" and switch it off when you go into cyberspace.

All in all, it's a great feature that makes playing the game slightly easier, though that's not saying much; the game is still brutal and unrelenting with or without ML.

Some enemies (like Executive Bots, Security 1 Bots, Security 2 Bots, and Cyborg Elites) can blow you ass to Mars and back. No joke, you REALLY have to pay attention or you're screwed. The examples I just gave are some of the worst enemies in the game and can often kill you in 3-4 shots (depending on the circumstances). And I haven't even gotten into SHODAN's mutant playthings...

Must seem like I'm playing a new game every other day or something, and it may just be true, although I seem to recall actually being a hell of a streak-player. I just finished STALKER (worst ending of course) and got an overhaul mod for it, but I haven't been playing it a whole lot.


SO Now I'm playing this, I fucking love adventure/point&click games okay, but this is one of those where it's like an FPS movement wise!

(http://www.pcgamersworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/Darkness-Within-2_2.jpg)

Of course it is quite buggy in some places, and lacks in some other areas as well, but it's still a great adventure, and it has an excellent feeling even though I get pretty low FPS now and then.

Shots 1 and 2 are from Ponterbee Station, an excellent mod for System Shock 2 by the very talented Christine Schneider.

1 - Vehicular mishap!

2 - Elite Bots on patrol. Don't worry, these guys are here to help you this time.

Shot 3 is from PS's sequel, the UNN Nightwalker...

3 - A slow night a the bar, but let's have a good time anyway.

Banshee's with cloaking = Awesome
Just go up to your enemy's base, poke at their economy (SCV's/Drone's/Probe's collecting minerals and vespene gas) and when their troops arrive just cloak your banshee's and carry on (Unless they have detecting units, that's a problem - You gotta macro it).

Anybody with any scouting ability and proper tech (whatever you need for static detection turrets) can cockblock your harass then waste you because of your investment in frilly 'shees, Though if you grab a zerg off-guard, you win tbh. Though it's been a long time since I played.

Banshee harassment is usually good early game (If you get your build order right), but because I was up against my friend (whose new to the game and was raging on vent) I could constantly do it all game, he didn't even know that SVC's have two build pages.

EDIT:

The 11 Starport rush:
9 Pop -- Refinery
10 Pop -- Barracks
11 Pop -- Factory with Tech Lab
11 Pop -- Orbital Command
11 Pop -- Starport
11 Pop -- Supply Depot

You then use the buildings to block your ramp/choke. Once your starport is finished - swap it with the factory so the starport can instantly begin producing banshee's with the pre-made techlab. The only way you can counter it is by scouting and building some AA (Engineering bay + Spamming AA turrets).

Hey! A Bioware game! Knights of the Old Republic 1 is one of my favorite games.

Currently playing KOTOR II: The Sith Lords. A flawed game, make no mistake, but I feel it's somewhat overly hated. The TSL Restored Content Mod (the Deadly Stream one, not the one from Team Gizka) fixes most of the issues and make the game more complete.

Again, not as awesome as the original, but still an intense and very satisfying game.

Yeah I found it very easy and the puzzles were fairly non-intricate, by that I mean they lacked "good" backtracking to the degree I'd have liked.

Some of (most of) the maps were absolutely incredibly detailed, sadly you could usually just dick around in the squared off parts. and the jelly that looked like liquid plaster was really weird, it broke their linearity and perfectly set out portal spots completely, it ws a welcome change but it was just so odd that you suddenly could do what the fuck ever.

The moon gel, wasn't much a problem to me, first you have to be able to make a portal in order to spread it, second the map design was good enough to avoid being able to dick around too much

Seconded, there was some excellent map design. So tell me guys-  how many secret areas did you get into? The completion puzzles are reasonably passable, but the secret rooms you have to bust a nut to get into. None of this Portal 1 "Oh there's a panel over there that's out a bit" walkin crap. Some of them are bloody creepy. Also did anyone else get mild clinical claustrophobia while not "inside" the labs?

How. Just how. How did Valve pimp out their graphics?

Most of the mapping looks to be of the same standards seen in HL2, the major difference is the addition of props and better use of lighting/fog.

I'm kind of surprised by how blocky things look, the CSS/L4D team did a much better job of creating environments.  IDK why Valve have never been very good with graphics - I'm not saying their stuff is bad, it just always looks very unpolished.

Currently playing Bioshock (will throw up some screens later).  Surprised by how good the environments look despite the game being so old, also it's a lot of fun - this is a game that does scripting / survival horror well.

By rewriting large portions of their graphics engine over a hefty period of time, finally realizing that shying away from anything but basic shaders like they've been doing since HL2 was the bads, and (probably) un-fucking their stupidly low entity/[rop limits and such. Now if only they'd get rid of/actually redo Hammer so it wasn't stuck in the mid-90's and terrible.

I'm pretty keen to blame Hammer, really. Sure, a lot of people have made extremely sexy maps with it over its lifespan, but that takes a long-as-fuck time to do. Though, we are talking about Portal, where most of the stuff's at specific angles and whatnot for the purpose of testing. Not to say it couldn't have looked far better, especially in places like the underbelly, buuuut :valve:

lol true, considering Valvetime it was a miracle it got released :P

I've given up belief in EP3 since it's now 4 years after the release of EP2 (and 7 years after the release of HL2), though I'm pretty sure whatever it is will surface in the form of HL3.

Fucking hell, I remember being seven like it was yesterday. Is there really no good way to make things go a bit slower?

You can't really complain about P2 being blocky, I mean most of the maps consist of squares that connect to build white and grey test rooms.
Also hammer keeps being my favorite mapping tool. I don't really like having to deal with too much models for my walls and whatnot.

Constructive solid Gemoetry-based level design, as a popular level construction paradign died LITERALLY with HL2's launch man. Not a single new engine since (if you don't count iD's parallel tech launch at the same time) has had CSG at the forefront of the contruction principles. Sure, these tools are there still, but I've only ever seen them being used as placeholders for modelled geo.

Anyways, Currently playing Transport Tycoon (openTTD). I really shouldn't, it's worse than a meth addiction.

Lol fuck Borderlands. Monotone grinding until your level is high enough to take on the next "boss". All the weapons look and feel the same, and you can only carry a few guns.

The best way to navigate through enemy territory to the next objective is simply by sprinting in a straight line. Enemies can't keep up, and your shield will provide more than enough protection to get you from point A to B without taking any damage.

I'm currently stuck in a map, surrounded by hostiles, with all the exits blocked and have no ammo or a way out again.

Shit game.

[Sum of All Fears]

Nah it's terrible.  Ben Affleck kills the film.  Still it's pretty fun when Neo-Nazis and Russians nuke America.
Stick with the Harrison Ford series of films, those were rather good.  One of them had Willem Defoe in too (though he looked ridiculously skinny for SF).

I remember the Sum of All Fears PC game being pretty good, it's basically Rainbow Six in all but name.

I agree the level up system is BS.  The best thing to do is check your map screen and do all the missions which match your current level.

Oh, and you can find some pouches which give you space for more weapons.
The weapons do all look remarkably similar, it's worth looking at the differences between them in case you find something interesting.  Protip, weapons which shoot flame rounds are especially awesome (though they are useless against dragons).

I always have an issue with movement like that in games. It's of course odd that my character can't move as well as I can in real life, but what's even more odd is when they have actual "moves" that do this set thing, like wall running and stuff. I'd say just being able to sprint, mantle and jump/duck jump is nice.

Besides, it's spelled terribel when in that context.

Whitey didn't eat chicken before because it was considered terribel food. And then when the slaves were the hots, the only animal the slaves could care for was chickens. So they ate chicken (and then white people realized it was tasty and ate it too, probably a secret for a long time)

And the watermelon? I suppose it's a pretty nice fruit that's loads to eat and it's cheap or something, not too sure, could google it.

But I won't.

Backgammon is a gentlemanly game, best enjoyed with port for maximum sophistication.  It's always hard to know when to take a risk or not, and the games are usually quite short - two facets which make for a decent board game.

World of Tanks. It's a pretty shitty Russian F2P 'mmo' (apparently 15v15 TDM with tanks counts as an MMO so long as there's stat tracking and buying stuff). It alternates between pretty good and utter shit depending on how much Russian bias the devs are throwing about this patch. This patch cycle, it's utter shit, but it satisfies my current need for a grindy game.

Seriously though, I think it's a pretty great game! It feels, excuse the term, hardcore, enough for me in the sense that it doesn't try to tell you exactly what you can and can't do and then stick with that.

Far Cry 2 is worth $5, thats what I paid for it. Kinda felt like Grand Theft 4x4 after a while, missions except those involving the Jackel were pretty stock and somewhat bland, but the combat was fun. Only major complaint was the mirrored weapons and the length of the overall game. Could have used more side missions that had plots.

Caleb's voice actor, Stephen Weyte, is fantastic. He also voiced the main character in Claw, which (in my opinion) is the best sidescroller ever made.

This game is not that bad. It's not THAT dark either.

Doom 3 > Half-Life 2

Why? Because it doesn't lose itself in a pretentious muddled plot which is trying too hard to be emotional and deep but falls on it's face.

Doom 3 was exactly the game it was supposed to be, an updated version of the original Doom with a new graphics engine. Anyone who expected more, was being unrealistic.

and yes, Stephen Weyte is the fucking man... amazing voice actor.

The developers were kind of 3D realms and Monolith so it's a consistent theme I guess.

But I agree, he kind of has an interesting voice I guess, but I wouldn't say he's very good at voice acting.

Also fuck I'm not really playing anything, well, some friends from England were over during the weekend so we played "Galenpanna" or the Sticky Head game, or what youw ant to call it. And The Settlers of SATAN, I strongly dislike that game.

3D Realms actually had a hand in making both games.

In fact, Caleb finds the mangled corpse of Duke Nukem in E1L4 (Dark Carnival) and even satirizes Duke's one-liners.

Caleb > Duke Nukem

Duke is a boring and 2D character, Caleb's annoying? I cannot stand Duke's voice half the time... it is really tedious. I think the developers of Blood feel that way too, hence the easter egg Trilkin mentioned;

How to fined Duke Nukem in BLOOD (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-mfOsaV6yE#)

Both games also run on the Build engine.

Caleb has personality... an undead cowboy who's gone slightly mad.

I wouldn't say he's very good at voice acting.

"I'm gonna have to put you down..."

See he's awesome because he doesn't sound like your average character voice, his grizzly tongue is unique.

That voice actor sounded like a pervert breathing down the phone, though to be fair it was 1997 and voice acting in English games was still somewhat in it's infancy.

However, the great asian game makers whose name I feel are superfluos had already nearly perfected the art at the time. If I was from japan I would scoff at all the dumb gaijins trying to beat me at my own game so to say.

Caleb has personality... an undead cowboy who's gone slightly mad.
He has just as much personality as Duke and Lo Wang, none.
But yeah, Caleb is awesome! Duke 3d, Shadow Warrior and blood are kinda the best games I ever played.

I have to say he has a slightl bit more personality than duke has, however, that doesn't say that much and also to be noted is that I don't mind duke at all, he's a badass dude really, and it fits well.

Finally got around to finishing Bioshock just now, the final boss was surprisingly easy to defeat: a couple of hits with grenades, rush up to his power platform and press the use key 4 times.

T'was a rather entertaining game, way better than any other contemporary corridor shooters.  It also felt surprisingly long... I played this over a period of 7 months to get to the ending which is a damn long time (though steam says total play time was 12 hours for me, it felt longer)

I've had Deus Ex for years, I started playing the first level, got bored and quit and haven't been back to it since...

Anyway, been playing a criminally underrated game... Clive Barker's Undying. I love this game so much, if you look at the screens you can see the graphics are kinda hit and miss but they've been rather oddball since it's release, on one hand there are some awesome detailed textures and on the other some are just photos made to tile. The gameplay is brilliant. You're an Irishman who has returned to the manor of a friend he fought with in the first world war, in order to help solve the mystery of a family curse. On the way you'll encounter werewolves, pirates, wizards, monks and some things I can't even describe. It's a definate must play if you've never checked it out, best £5 I ever spent!

Note screenshots 5 through 7, at one point you explore an old abandoned monastery for several hours and then after procuring the correct items you travel back in time to the monastery when it was still being used. Very very atmospheric.

HUTTAH INVERTED NECK SNAP!

Seriously though, if anyone wants to buy me this game on Steam, I will hump your leg for as long as you'd want. Co-Op mode is probably the best Co-Op I've ever played in my life. (Lost my own copy, the above image is fucking illegal from a perfectly fine torrented copy.)

Splinter Cell: Conviction's Co-Op is good, but doesn't nearly require as much teamwork and care as Chaos Theory's.

Oh, and it costs $9,99. If you don't have it, BUY IT. (http://store.steampowered.com/app/13570/)

That's what's spinning right now. My computer is so damn crash prone I use my little brother's computer to play games. He's basically even nerder than me and has a year old computer with leet specs.

So I'm playing a game that's as un-hardcore as a game can be to relax.

Fuck yeah, Just Cause. Can't wait for JC3 and coop, tbh. Devs were tinkering with the idea of patching coop into JC2 in the meantime, but decided against it just because the game wasn't designed around it and it'd prove to be too much of a pain in the ass. :(

Part of the more expensive pre-order. Normal pre-order just gives you a day 1 unlock of the Kar98K and MN9130 bayonets and an 'assault badge' that shows up on your character model, expensive one gives beta + day 1 unlocks of a few extra weapons, lolTF2 hats, and a pair of KF characters.

I guess KF characters would be kinda neat, otherwise the early acces seems to be the only real reason there. Got my cheap one 20% off so it was kinda cheap and all, and also the euro was down to 9 kronor which is two lower than usual, so it was all good baby bay-bee!

Still though, euro and dollar are not the same, steam, god damn...

I have to say I concur wholeheartedly with Alex. Splinter Cell is okay, but hardly as great as it's made out to be. It tout itself as a gripping stealth/action gamer, but it comes up short on both counts. The "stealth" element is incredibly forced. When you here the word, you expect to use your wits and some creativity. Sadly, all I ever get out of it are the classic dilemmas of "try it until you get it right" "wait here while the scripted sequence finishes" and "hide here and hope to God that no one sees you."
I find the environments very constrictive and linear. Very rarely do I get any flexibility - that is, I don't really get much of a choice on how and where I can sneak hide, it's often very specific and predetermined. It's mostly superfluous simply I mostly beat guys down or shoot them. That ruins the whole point of stealth. Apparently these guys never heard of Thief, Deus Ex, or Metal Gear for that matter.

Don't get me wrong, the game can be great and has some awesome moments (the final battle in the slaughter house is great fun), but it's a mediocre stealth game.

TBH it doesn't really feel like a stealth game, more like Tomb Raider but with a less clear sense of progression (seriously, finding where you're meant to go is a nightmare).

Going to give the other SC games a try, but the first is pretty painful.

Unreal 1 & 2?

Been playing Gundemonium (sp?) it's actually pretty good fun, more fun than the sort of stuff I played back on the Megadrive / SNES in the sidescrolling-shooter heyday.

I'm not sure I understand how the hit detection works or if you have lifebar, basically not having instant death is appreciated.

Actually right on Unreal 1, but not the second one, not a particularly big fan of it so it will take some time before I reinstall that, which basically means when I finished these games.

The other one is Gunman Chronicles, but it kinda gets away with it because it's not being very serious at all at any time. Although I'd like to say unreal gets away with everything kinda because it's amazing. I was almost completely sure the CD wouldn't read because it's got it's fair share of scratches, but Unreal just installed perfectly and ran just fine, now the only issue with playing older games like that is aspect ratio... 16:9 wasn't so pop back then.

The game has some weird GFX card compatibility issues... But man that game is buggy as fuck and it's so weird how some things work, like how you enter games and can't set it up outside the game.

Yeah, BattleLog is pretty much the dumbest thing DICE could've done.

I'll be honest, it doesn't look as impressive as the trailers... also why is it so fucking green? 'Oh hey guys I just went out and took them photos and turned out all green because natural light is like really green isn't it?!!'

Green? Oh and I'm not playing at the highest settings. I actually haven't even touched the settings thus far because to me, it looks fine enough and runs very smoothly.

They also said the Beta to have slightly downgraded graphics. Dunno about this, but yeah, not the max. Getting new CPU and Graphics Card in a few days, so I'll upload some screens of the full game on the highest settings once it's out.

Ok fair enough.

The greeny blue colour correction stuff going on, real life doesn't look like this and I don't understand why game developers seem to think it does! It would be fine if it looked good.. but it doesn't.

Game defaults all settings to low. And yeah, the 'ultra' graphics settings are all locked for the beta.

Fuck yeah intrusive HDR and some sort of haze fucking everywhere even though it's overcast!

Light cloud cover != overcast. :smile:

The HDR can fuck off, though. You'd think that you were staring at the god damn Sun.

I'll be honest, it doesn't look as impressive as the trailers... also why is it so fucking green? 'Oh hey guys I just went out and took them photos and turned out all green because natural light is like really green isn't it?!!'

I'mma chalk it up to the fact that Metro is a terrible map. The color correction was far better on that Iran map they had in the beta until a few days ago.

Anyone know why so many old games shoot my FPS dead when stuff is transparent?
The force fields in Jedi Knight used to do it a lot, and now when I'm playing Unreal, the additive sprites do it. There is a setting for low detail transparency that I use on the world textures but none for the additives, this computer can run crysis well so Unreal shouldn't be a problem I gather.

So there have been a dozen fan patches of unreal throughout the years and they add loads of goodness like better support for newer cards and whatnot. But it's hard for me to play the game with texture filtering, it kicks all the nostalgia out of it. You can turn filtering of in the OpenGLsettings but that turns the lightmapping and shadows into huge pixels and also makes it run a bit choppy because... uh.. some reason.

ORLD GAEMS BEST

Implying old games were free of such problems.  I doubt anyone here (except maybe D3ads) is old enough to remember having to use gamespy to play Quake 2 online.  Now that was a nightmare.

Does anyone know of a decent graphics mod for GTA3?  I found this http://www.moddb.com/mods/gta-iii-improved-edition (http://www.moddb.com/mods/gta-iii-improved-edition) but I'm more looking for something which adds higher resolution textures (if that's even possible?) or better models.

I look forward to the trailer of GTA V crazy much. I have no idea what they will do this time. GTA IV still impresses me tech wise, the way characters move, how the cars get smashed and stop working and all the physics in the world, like drop a pistol the wrong way and it fires and such.

Honest Hearts was indeed disappointing. Joshua is a pretty leet character though, but not awesome enough to compensate for the uninspired enemies and that gay hippy Dead Horses tribe.

Old World Blues is pretty nice and imo quite a lot better. The quest is a bit lulzy (your organs have been replaced by cybernetic counterparts, and you have to do shit to retrieve them), with some memorable moments and the characters do have a lot of personality. The enemies are pretty much fillers and are generally as boring as the White Legs in DM, with the exception of Dr. Mobius (your "nemesis"). It has a lot of Portal-like humor, but it tends to go way overboard with pushing the "science jokes", also some of the conversations are fucking endless, especially those at the start. You can grab a lot of cool shit in OWB, such as a pro stealth suit, which unfortunately is so advanced that it also talks to you and a K9000 gun (machine gun with a dog brain).

The quest pretty much involves going to place v to get object x in order to advance to place y and get object z. It's pretty short if you just do the main objectives, and it isn't all that difficult to complete, especially if you got the pulse gun from one of the vaults in the regular game (you'll be dealing with a lot of robots) and a sniper rifle to deal with the other filler enemies. The side quests are meh, mostly retrieving things which can upgrade your gun (similar to that shit in that other DLC, with the holo rifle), just trivial rewards really.

Overall OWB isn't all that great, but the setting and characters make it at least more worthy of the $10 price tag than Honest Hearts.

Finally got around to installing BF3, holy fuck the single player is gay.  Generic corridor shooting shit which confines the player to the most retardedly small area and holds your hand for fucking everything.

You know what?  At least in HL2 I could move forwards and backwards of my own free will.  BF3 SP forces you into a room, closes the door behind you, kill all the enemies, then move to the next room, door behind you closes, etc etc.

QTE: press a button to stop a rat biting you ASDSFSDFDSF

The story is presented well, but seeing the usual "hi I'm an interrogator please tell me XYZ" (cut to flashback, gun battling) has been done more times than I care in FPS games.  The graphics are nice though, and seem to run pretty nicely maxed out (which I wasn't expecting at all, was thinking I'd need to play on minimum).


Anyway, we better nerd this shit up online Slider.

IDK, there's still usually one really good game which comes out each year.  I presume that would be Deus Ex this year (but I haven't played it yet).

FPS games as an overall genre are incredibly guilty of stripping down all gameplay and delivering a minimal experience.  The one big game for next is probably going to Stalker 2, with Far Cry 3 possibly being good (if they get rid of all the shit features from FC2).

Have you tried any of the ARMA 2 mods Tom?  Could be something there to keep you entertained if you haven't.

Myst, the original nittry-gritty Win95 version.

I've played this game thoroughly for over fifteen years, and to this day it STILL amazes me.
Watched the Making Of Myst Movie last night. Lots of nostalgia there. The QuickTime video compression is hilariously compressed and choppy, almost as bad as the Sega CD.  But back in 1993, it was considered great video quality.

As for the ingame graphics, would you believe that they're actually 8-bit? No really, I mean it. They look much denser, like 24-bit or something, but they're actually 8-bit. Apparently the programmers used a bit of technical wizardry to pull the illusion off.

Finally got around to installing BF3, holy fuck the single player is gay.  Generic corridor shooting shit which confines the player to the most retardedly small area and holds your hand for fucking everything.

It's waaaaay better than Modern Shitfare 3, watched a playthrough on YT and couldn't stop lolling. The Russians actually speak Russian and use other weapons than "ak47", the weapons in general are just so much more realistic and well... DEM GRAPHIX, game looks stunning on full whack.

I just finished Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, felt more like playing an interactive movie than a game, Among Thieves is still the king.

The Russian missions are by far the strongest ones in the game, and yeah hearing native speech was much better than the usual Jagdzamesh!

Can't finish the 2nd Russian mission, guy gets in da choppah and always escapes no matter how much I shoot at it.  Sigh.

As for the ingame graphics, would you believe that they're actually 8-bit? No really, I mean it. They look much denser, like 24-bit or something, but they're actually 8-bit. Apparently the programmers used a bit of technical wizardry to pull the illusion off.
HL1 used 8 bit textures too, I guess Myst used the same trick of bitmap specific palettes?  The same principal applies to GIF files.

The Megadrive and SNES used similar methods, although I think they were limited to 64 colours in one bitmap image.  I am such a nerd :B

Crysis 2 lags a bit, around 20fps. DX11 not enabled.

Kevin, I need to know how you are able to play this shit on all "Ultra" settings, I can only go so far as High. Might need to tweak some detailed settings... what is the most taxing graphical feature in Cryengine 3?

E/

Oh, and Bioshock 2 is awesome. Played through it. Greer said it was a weird "out-of-the-bule" stroy, and I can empathize to an extent, but that really only focused on a lore perspective... I think using plasmids and guns at the same time forces nerds to multitask, a skill that I still haven't polished up on even after beating it :x

Always thought dragons were lame as hell, and also I haven't ever played a bethesda main quest through because they just feel like a funnel whereas the rest of the game is a sieve (man I am so good at putting this stuff to words).

I am the archmage now however, which was also a stupid as hell questline, it was fun to play through though.

This game.

Is (will be) my buy of the season for a variety of reasons, most of which are because LOL EA SUX and LOLOL60$. Also because I've played Saints Row 2 and that was a hell of a lot of fun, and not just because my coop partner used the plastic surgeon to turn himself into a big black guy and chase my (small, white, female) character around Stilwater while yelling various stereotypical (racist?) black terms. ...that was a lot of fun though. :D

I couldn't stand the radio in GTA IV even, how am I supposed to take on all this incredibly messed up bizarreness

lolol GTA4. GTA split between SA and 4, with Saints Row (not sure about the first, but 2 definitely) going the downright silly (SA had a floppy pink dildo for a weapon) route and 4 going the emotionally charged serious route, which I guess some people liked but others didn't. I haven't played a GTA since 3 though (besides a little confused running around in VC), sandbox thirdperson games weren't much my thing til someone gifted me SR2.

tl;dr SR3 is godlike, but probably not for you if you didn't like the silly elements of GTA. Wait4GTAV, etc.

....hm. I've loved FPS games since I was little and didn't care much for the GTA/sandbox/gang stuff. Now in a year of big name shooters (and I grew up playing BF1942) the only game I'm buying is a GTA type sandbox game. what has the world come to, etc.

I absolutely Love Mafia and Mafia 2 though, when I started playing mafia 2 after a couple weeks of GTA IV it made it feel like GTA IV was made by a bunch of kids who tried to sniff glue but got stuff without solvent and got fake-high or something, it just felt so awfully bad. Still love it in its own way though.

I have never heard anyone say this before.

I love the childish ridiculousness of GTA games, having a game which doesn't take itself seriously is a lot of fun (well, assuming the main game is fun at least). Dennis Hopper in Vice City was absolutely hilarious :B

SR3 looks hilarious too, can't wait to have a go at that.

Also testing out a new randomob* skin for the zombie.

Sweet jesus 90% of that was spent either raaging at the speaker bullshit, mostly crippled fleeing the incredibly hard enemies or WANDERING AROUND LOST AS FUCK, even with the Pipboy's map. I did it at level 10 in hardcore mode, sure, but... most of it was spent wandering in dark alleyways avoiding beartraps and grenade traps. Though.... I did enjoy beating the old fuck to death with a baseball bat. Got out with 4 bars of gold too. :3

I finally got back into Dead Space 2 again, I'd had a major problem getting past a load of spawning enemies at the end of chapter 7 which caused me to stop playing for months. Pretty much just spammed all my guns in quick succession plus stasis and I still only just made it through the door! Enjoying the game again now, up to chapter 10 where you're back on the Ishimura again, feels strange being back there so soon, like the feeling I had when playing HL: Opposing Force.. One thing that really urks me about DS2 is how bodies disappear when there's a lot of them in an area, so you lose any pickups they once had... this happens pretty often when you're fighting off about 20 enemies at a time and don't have the time to stomp corpses because you're too busy shooting limbs off or pressing "x" to not die until your hands bleed :/

Oh lawl what a coincidence, I just finished it today ;D

DS1 and DS2 are amazing games. TBH it's hard to keep four guns and maintain sufficient ammo at the same time, I usually take three once I get 20-25 slots in my inventory. Had a go with the Plasma Cutter, Line Gun, and the Contact Beam. And it's easier + more versatile to mod up three guns evenly rather than four.

I did notice that disappearing bodies thing you mentioned, but it never really bothered me; I guess it's the game's way of keeping the FPS nice and high, which is understandable to an extent.

To be fair you shouldn't be worrying about disappearing corpses when you're pressing a single key to not die, since technically all other enemies stop attacking once that single foe has you pinned down. Stasis or the secondary attack of the Contact Beam with it's special unlocked can be helpful in a pinch if you're really in need of getting items during a fight.

I don't have the Contact Beam because I'm gay, I've got detonator, Pulse Rifle, Line Gun and Plasma Caster :joebiden: I wouldn't mind so much about having to press X a few times but you literally have to stab it for about 20 second before it gets off you!

I'm on the last level now, fuck me that respawning necromorph is even more annoying than the one in DS1!

lol @ 16:9 monitors.

Interesting fact, out of the 4 survivors, I am 99.99% sure Louis is the one that gets shot the most, and not because of the (obvious) reason of 'he's black', but because of the white shirt + red tie combo.

So anyways, I've been playing Saints Row 2 recently.

http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/596956495856560350/C9D21F1336194CD3440A4528D389DD0B02213FDE/ (http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/596956495856560350/C9D21F1336194CD3440A4528D389DD0B02213FDE/)

Akimbo NR4 for the win.

Also, yes, that's right ; the Bawss is wearing Jack Carver's shirt.

Also, more of note - yes, that is half of a hooker standing by the stereo. No, I have no idea what happened. SR2 PC is glitchy at best. :P

That colour grading looks awful. I am kind of opposed to it in general for games, but I get it in some places, like a really cold outdoor environment or such, but really once you have radiousity would you need it at all?

I don't mind the color grading, gives it a more realistic feel IMO. I think we can all agree, however, that those lens flares are fucking overdone. I hated that shit in BF3, it came to the point that the entire environment was just pure white, can't see shit captain. Also, that bloom does little to nothing in the large scope of the visuals, it's not very necessary. But, I am glad that it's not completely apeshit overdone like some games.

Just DNF so far, best 5$ spent in years. >:D

Mixed with Portal 2 in April and Saints Row the Third in November, I'm pretty sure 2011 was one of the best years for games in... awhile, actually, even with all the shitty games - Homefront, MW3 (cant really say if it's shitty/not, but it's COD), and.... other games I'm sure existed, though I never gave enough of a fuck to look them up.

Fuck all you haters and your over anticipating asses, DNF is one of the most fun games I've had in years. Just made it to where the demo showed off (Highway Battle, Part II), but sweet jesus this is unbelievable fun. I'm amazed how much you can interact with. :D Toilets, gloryholes (found that one by accident, I swear), sinks, toilets, microwaves, all sorts of props, frisbees, turds. Guns drop mags upon reloads. :D

Going for the 1911 achievement on my first playthrough.

http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/596957419729390053/7DAC844D401F0F87C16BD98BF625A389E3447AAE/ (http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/596957419729390053/7DAC844D401F0F87C16BD98BF625A389E3447AAE/)

Favorite level in the game so far, for some reason I -really- loved the kitchen section, even though I pretty much hate platformer/jumping puzzles. :C Oh, and the Assault Commander is just as terrifying as it was in DN3D when it yells "Suck it down". D:

http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/596957419703989144/3F7AB7CB677EBAAD0605C2C82C13E6DD7F2A5B51/ (http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/596957419703989144/3F7AB7CB677EBAAD0605C2C82C13E6DD7F2A5B51/)

This game is chock-full of winsauce and kickassery.

One of the best Star Wars games I've every played, right up there with KOTOR.

I first heard of this game a year or two ago from a fellow HLC'er named Jacek, better known as Wonrz (who sadly seems to have dropped of the face of the earth...where'd ya go, bro?). I highly recommend it. I got it of Amazon for dirt cheap - a brand new, unopened copy less than a dollar. I played more in shipping than I did for the game!

But Jedi Academy had Movie Battles II, so your argument is invalid.

Also, what the hell, I'm young as FUCK and I remember seeing that shit when it CAME OUT.

And good job using HapSlash's shit. That guy's awesome.

Maybe, maybe not.
I really wouldn't know.
When it comes to comic books, I am neither knowledgeable nor do I particularly care for them.

Regardless, I still find the game a blast, though some levels are insanely hard, like Temple Guardians.

Currently trying to play through Rainbow Six Vegas.  Trying to. 

I'm currently stuck on a section were you have to protect a computer from getting shot (seriously, a computer) but I get spammed with NPCs who all throw grenades at it.  I must have tried doing this bloody section about 20 times now, trying to do different things but each time computer dies and missions ends.  It's pretty unfun.

Ubisoft why are you so terrible :argh:

Yeah so I managed to finish Vegas.  Fuck that stupid section, but thank god for youtube videos to show exploits.

Tried giving Battlefield 3 another chance today... oh my god is that a broken piece of shit:
Origin demands 4gb update
Battlelog demands I download and install some crap update manually because Origin is too shit to do it itself
Try playing BF3 - I keep falling through the floor (repeatedly) each time this causes the game to crash

Not even the coop is good, it's like they took the single player and made it less fun.  Worst game ever.

EDIT: Ah clever nerds, they only use a couple of textures and stream all the base terrain, pretty sure you won't find a grotto or a cave too, also I CAN SEE THE LOD CHANGING !

Looks pretty ugly imo

positive KdR .. too bad it's against bots.
Also all you nerds better buy CS:GO when it comes out, it's one of the only games that usually holds my attention.

CS:GO looks pretty damn shit graphics-wise, but the gameplay looks rather fun. Nice to see a game like that still exists, considering everything nowadays comes with goddamn ironsights and all that shit.

Shipment wasn't that bad of a map in my opinion, it was just in the wrong game with the wrong features. Nade spamming was too viable and probably started off this entire "LOL I NADE YOU CROSS MAP" craze that all the modern Call of Duty games carry with them. Frankly if Shipment was in Counter-Strike in the form of an aim_ map, it would've made a lot more sense.

I'm (trying) to play Dark Forces. It's the first game to feature Luke's good buddy and professional badass, Kyle Katarn.

Oddly, this first chapter in Kyle's career has him without his signature Jonathan Frakes beard. He's clean-shaven here.
I guess this is a literal example of Growing the Beard (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GrowingTheBeard). (Yeah, I made a TvTropes reference. Couldn't help myself.)

Anyway, this is a pretty awesome classic FPS. It's also surprisingly difficult (for me).
No ingame saves at all. You have to beat a level before your progress is saved. Fine by me, except that the game's decided to be an incredible dick to me. I made it up to Crix Madine's Fate, but after completing the mission and happen to want to stop for the day, the game doesn't save my progress. If I abort the mission in game and want to come back it's fine, but quiting to "DOS" (DOSBOX, actually) and booting the game again ruins everyhing. No saves past the aforementioned save. Oh and for whatever reason, when I complete Crix's Fate, the game robs me of all of my weapons, even my beloved Bryar pistol.

This is bullshit.

So, though I hate to do so, I've skipped past the mission (already beat it three times, enough's enough) and cheated back my weapons and emptied out all of weapons I'm not supposed to have and dumped my explosives.

I have to level with you guys.
I finished Dark Forces, but I cheated like a motherlover towards the end. Remember I said the game keeps refusing to save my progress and steals all my weapons and items? Yeah well it never got any better.

So I used pretty much every cheat in the book to get past the final level. And by Christ I have to say I still barely finished it. I know I may sound like a pussy, but the last level to me was insane. Not only was it full of tough enemies and a nasty final boss, but it also threw all the cheap tricks at me like crushers, cryptic puzzles and turrets.

I'll try to make a more honest effort in the future, but I can't really take any more. Don't get me wrong, DF is a great game, but it goes way to far with some its tricks. It's godawful that there are so many FU traps that you have to memorize because you can't save in-game. If you get careless or forgetful even momentarily it can cost you everything.

Again, the game doesn't suck, but I do.

Playing the Phantom Menace video game.

This was one of the most memorable games from my childhood as well as one of the earliest video games I ever owned.

I played the Hell out of it when I was younger.

It got very low ratings from review sites, but I think the judgements were unfair. At time it was released, it was pretty advanced. A third-person shooter/brawl with a some decent (though by no means stellar) quasi-RPG dialogue-choice elements. It's got a nice assortment of weapons and still fun to mess stuff up. The lightsaber fighting is certainly less clunky and cumbersome than in Jedi Knight and Mysteries of the Sith, which were released only two years previously.

I have to wonder if the hatred for the movie (be it justified or not) spilled over to the game review. I personally think it's an underrated classic. Not spectacular, but fun and engaging, which is all that matters to me.

It was a real bitch getting it to run on my new computer though. I couldn't use the native installed since it was 16-bit and my machine is 64-bit. So I had to set up a virtual machine, install WinXP on the virtual machine, transfer the game files to a USB, drop the files in my regular machine, and then spend a teeth-grindingly long time making careful modifications to system files in the registry editor to get the game running.
It took me about four tries before I got it to work!

Good Lord, what a drag.

But was it worth it? I think it was.
I was willing to rake my own ass over the coals to be able to play it again, so dearly so I love this game.

I don't really get nostalgic about anything that I know of, sometimes it comes and hits me like a club and I have no idea when.

Some games I played I have very fond memories of though, Especially LBA2 and Unreal. Fucking nice pieces of game.

Midnight Club 2.

This game was shit, just thought I'd say that. It's impossible to play due to the broken controls, who thought it was a good idea to make a game where your car turns 45 degrees when you tap the arrow key. Seriously, lightly tapping the arrow key turns your car 45 degrees. How did anyone come up with such terrible controls?

The physics suck butts too, you can drive straight into walls or head on into traffic and it doesn't do anything to dent your speed. Carmageddon had this stuff nailed back in 1997 man, 1997.

This actually is one of the worst racing games I've ever played. I blame the Belg.

Replayed Dark Forces and beat it legitimately.

The saves now work without any problem. I deleted and recreated my ingame profile and that fixed the problem.

I enjoyed in immensely and can honestly say it's one of the best FPS jaunts I've had in a while. If you like classic-style shooters, I highly recommend it.

I also recommend checking out Next Tangent's excellent Dark Forces thread at the Something Awful LP archive. They're a great help for tricky parts of the game and exceptional at guiding you to secrets.

http://lparchive.org/Dark-Forces/ (http://lparchive.org/Dark-Forces/)

Now I'm playing it again for some reason.

It's old school and dated, but the gameplay's great and it has a certain ineffable charm that early/mid 90s shooters have that can't be matched today (like Wolfenstein 3D, Duke Nukem, Blood, and Doom are obvious examples, though I would guess that Rise of the Triad could count. Maaaaybe TekWar, too, but I doubt anyone's familiar with it.)

My brother and sister used to have a Gameboy Advance and Midnight Club was one of the carts that came with it.
My bro often mentions to me how much he hated the game. I think my sis had the same sentiment.

I often played a Spongebob sidescroller game on the Advance. It sorta sucked too, but it was kinda cool as a guilty pleasure. None of us were really serious with the Advance anyway. It was something we fiddled with when we had nothing better to do.

Rage, at full glory. I wonder, what they had to do to screw up the performance that bad... and those megatextures...
Overall, a half decent game. Glad, I bought it on some sale for just a few bucks.

It's just as good as Knight, if you ask me.

It's not as "pick-up-and-play" as JK1, though. You have to get used to the somewhat awkward controls. Mouse aiming is very limited, since DF was made before mouse-looking caught on. You can turn to aim on the X-axis, like in classic Doom and Wolf3d, but you can't aim on the Y-axis. Instead you have to look up/down with the PageUp and PageDown keys. Even trickier, the directions are reversed like a flying game, PageUp to look down and PageDown to look up. The other controls are kind of sticky by default, but you can luckily remap the binds in the Setup.

Another detail that may be off-putting is that there is no in-game saving whatsoever. Once you complete a mission, you're progress is saved. You have to rely on a lives system, with a max of 9. If you lose them all, you're sent back to the loading screen, but you get all your lives and equipment back.

Sounds survivable, I've finished half of Montezuma's Return and you can't use the mouse at all and you have to do well in some crazy fast first person fist fights anyway.

I never bothered with the main quest. And to be honest most major questlines felt weird to me. Being the leader of everything is just a bit strange. I knew one spell when I became the arch mage, and another student made his own spell the first day of school, something that's completely impossible for the player character to do. Why did I become arch mage again?

A lot of the side/minor quests are meh if you ask me. It's either doing some boring obvious puzzles that involved no critical thinking skills or delivering something to point A then go kill target A and afterward you receive a reward just like in many RPG games.The only reason why I got hooked to it in the first place was because a lot of the game seemed to have taken inspiration from the Norse mythology and the Danish old religions, which are some of my favorite topics I enjoy reading about, plus it's a break from the typical modern/futuristic/historical FPS that I have in my library of games.

Decapitating people with daggers is fun. The physics in this game is quite hilarious too. In the main quest where I had to capture Odahviing he swept down and somehow sent the Stormcloak guard that was standing on the grand porch spinning in the air far across the map. Then there was this time when I was fighting Umana at the Dwemer and somehow I flung my character out of the map in to the void when I lunged at her.

Oh? Maybe we should have a DM party. Shockwaves and Sidewinders up! Good times.

I actually don't think the game itself godawful. If anything, it's painfully, teeth-grindingly mediocre and bland.
I should also mention I'm playing with the game patched to 1.2 (the latest I could find). With unlimited saves, the game's flaws are far more forgivable, though that's no saying much. The SAVE GEM bullshit makes things so much harder than they have to be. I really don't know what the devs were thinking. Save gem systems always suck, in opinion, whether the game itself is good or not. Tomb Raider did the same thing and even then I felt it was bullshit.

Again, the game's bad. But it's funny-bad.

One good thing I can say: the music's pretty cool.

The ending is still shit.  I can't believe they spent 3 months making 10 minutes of cinematics and a short powerpoint.  The only previous decisions that are shown at all in the end are geth/quarian conflict and genophage stuff; the few major decisions in the first 2 games are forgotten.  

The new ending is really satisfying for the 15 seconds that it lasts, and control and destroy are greatly improved but still not acceptable endings.

So, replaying HL1 just for kicks and stuff. I was standing at this door and as Barney was opening it, my health started going up and up and up, past 100, all the way to 256, then it would start back at 0. The process was seemingly infinite, I jumped a couple times and it stopped, and the door opened.

As my health went down I figured it was just like normal, but nah, medkits wouldn't work.

This is gonna be a pretty long post, but bear with me.

I've gotten a bit burnt out with shooters lately, so I've decided to revisit an old favorite from my younger days...Claw!
(http://i.imgur.com/Gjke5.png)
It's also referred to as Captain Claw and also as Kapitan Pazur in the Polish version. It was made by Monolith Productions

In my opinion, it's the greatest side-scrolling platformer game ever made.

I had to borrow the above screenshot from a fan site because my screenies keep messing up...
(http://i.imgur.com/PagZu.png?1)
See? Don't know what's up with that.

It's an addicting and tricky game. The characters in the game are furries for lack of a better term, but the game is so good, I couldn't care less.

The player character is Captain Nathaniel Joseph Claw, a privateer who after escaping a Spanish prison embarks on a quest find a legendary magical artifact called the Amulet of Nine Lives, cutting a swath through many varied and interesting places including a forest, a crystal cavern, a pirate fortress, a shipyard, and a lost island to name a few.

Nathaniel is voiced by the fantastic Stephen Weyte, who you guys may remember as from the Blood series. In my eyes, this character is his best performance hands-down. He uses a sword, pistol, magic, and (perhaps a nod to Caleb) bundles of dynamite. he can also throw barrels of explosives at enemies as well as throw enemies into traps or into each other (like Super Mario Brothers 2).

Besides throwing TNT, Nathaniel also resembles Caleb in his gritty eat-rocks-and-spit-out-gravel personality, though he's not nearly as crazy.

There a fourteen huge and elaborately detailed stages to stomp through and there are plenty of secrets and treasure to hunt for. A warning though, this game is tough, especially if you trying to get all the treasure. Even hardcore sidescroller players will find their skills tested.
Another reason the game is it's music. It has an absolutely fantastic soundtrack, composer by Daniel Bernstein and Guy Whitmore, who -surprise, surprise - also composed the soundtrack for Blood. It also has well-done FMVs, especially in the DVD version.

Some other random stuff...

Red Tail, a boss towards the end of the game (voiced by Jason Hall, who also voiced Tchernobog in Blood)

If you love sidescrollers, I insist you check it out.

if you're interested, the website "Claw Recluse" has tons of helpful information and details about the game.
http://kapitanpazur.piasta.pl/en/index.html (http://kapitanpazur.piasta.pl/en/index.html)

The only downside is the game is somewhat rare and very hard to find in hard copy for a reasonable price. Monolith sadly appears to have brushed it by the wayside. They no longer seem to support or sell it and it is not available on Steam or GOG.com, apparently due to some kind of behind-the-scenes copyright dispute. System Shock 1 and 2 are currently stuck in the same limbo.

Luckily *ahem* "alternatives" exist. And thank goodness for that.

I still have my original CD-DVD of the game with me, along with a few other charming gems from back during the days when DVD games were a new thing...including Wing Commander IV and Journey Project 3: The Legacy of Time. Ah, good times.

The collectible hunt with those rust mites man, that shit was annoying as hell.



Also that picture is pure beauty trilkin.

Also I hope thief 4 is heading in a different direction than 3 did. I didn't feel thief 3 too much even if I liked the game.
Title: Re: Post what you're currently playing! [Screenshots] [56k is a JPEG saved in paint]
Post by: Trilkin on August 09, 2012, 12:24:52 AM
Agreed, I hope so, too. Deadly Shadows was quite good, but there were more than a few of stupid decisions made.

Like deep water, I don't get. It's not like the Unreal Engine couldn't handle water or swimming. It was a more advanced version, Unreal 2.0, but Unreal nonetheless. Maybe the physics were glitching up? Anyhow, if you couldn't swim, there should have been invisible barriers. Having you swim during the first mission of the first game and then having you drown in the third game in water that is negligibly deep (when compared to swims in the first two games) just by falling in is a cheap cop out. If they weren't able to incorporate swimming in deep water, they should not have made you able to reach the deep water.

I also don't get why the Rust Mites explode when you shoot them. Maybe the priests' enchantment causes the mite to combust? I don't know, but it's a pain to get good Faction standing with the Hammerites without causing too much of a ruckus (though I always do it anyway - I actually rather like the fellows and their strong, fiery sense of justice). You might as well be shooting fire arrows and detonating mines; people panic and everyone goes apeshit and things take forever to settle down. Then you gotta find the 20+ and do it again. You don't really need to kill all of the mites, anyhow. Just hunt down and kill as many undead in the Old Quarter as you can. It's less of a pain and easier to do, since the undead are so vulnerable to flash bombs. There's less chance for starting a ruckus, as well, since the undead are usually somewhat far removed from the guards and such.

I like to get good faction standing with the Pagans, too, just as a sort of bonus (I had to look up what those blood cornerstones looked like from Visual Walkthroughs, I think, yeah).

Oh well, I can be a patient man when I need to - so much do I love the Thief series.

...

By the way, guys, I tried the Jurassic Park: Trespasser demo yesterday for laughs and just to see what all the hubbub was about. Goodness me, the graphics are nice, but the controls are some of the lousiest I've ever experienced. I uninstalled the demo simply because I couldn't find a configuration that made sense.

What am I playing? Well, only one of the winningest run-and-gun shooters ever.

PAINKILLER!

(http://i.imgur.com/3QPEE.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/C4HZa.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/sVrzI.png)

It seems yet another Painkiller game is scheduled to be released in the fourth quarter of this year, September or October I believe.

The working title is Painkiller: Hell and Damnation.

http://www.vg247.com/2012/08/24/painkiller-hell-damnation-platforms-release-date-and-pricing-to-be-announced-in-september/ (http://www.vg247.com/2012/08/24/painkiller-hell-damnation-platforms-release-date-and-pricing-to-be-announced-in-september/)

Yeah, I know. I'm skeptical, too. All sequels released so far (except perhaps Battle Out of Hell) have been horrendous, mostly because Dreamcatcher has tried it's hardest to milk the game for every red cent through lazy, pathetic cash-ins (translation: let's adopt as many fan mods from the net that we can, slap a price tag on it and call it a "sequel").

However, this one might be a different story. A small group of former People Can Fly devs, called The Farm 51 (yes, that is what they call their team) are making this game. They previously made Necrovision, which I think is a pretty cool game.

So, crossing my fingers here. Maybe, just maybe, the PK community will finally get a true and competent sequel and not another shitsucker like rest.

EDIT: I looked again and it seems to be a remake. Oh well, my point still stands. I don't care if it's a reboot so long as it's done well. Better a good remake than a shitty sequel.

It will be interesting to see how it turns out.

(Please oh please, don't fuck this up guys.)

Let's run through some things:

- What version of PainKiller are you using? Version number etc

- What version of PainKiller++ did you install and where did you get it from? (I suggest using the PK++ 1.3 Beta and Update found on pkzone.org (http://pkzone.org/downloads/mods/pk-1-3-open-beta/))

- How exactly did you launch/start PK++? PK++'s installer should automatically place a shortcut on your desktop of which you should use to launch PK++, the executable that is stored inside PainKillers /bin/ (PKPlusX.Y.exe) folder for PK++ will just launch the original PainKiller game and not the modification. If there isn't either an executable nor shortcut on your desktop then you might of installed PK++ incorrectly. :shobon:

I have Black Edition, so by default, my game's version is 1.64.

The executable in my directory is PKPlus1.3.exe.

Uninstalled and reinstalled. Still can't play PK++.

However whenever I launch a level in singleplayer, an obnoxious deep voice says "PAINKILLER!". I can say for sure that voice wasn't there before.

I'll keep trying.

Got this evil SOB on Steam yesterday and just finished on Hard Difficulty. Had a wonderful, wonderful time.

I loved all of the episodes, but the last one, the Elder World is my favorite of them all. The action and gunplay is superb, the level design is phenomenal and the surreal atmosphere is out of this world. Most of the levels in EP4 were made by Carl "Sandy" Peterson, which came as a surprise to me at first. I didn't really like his maps for Doom (Hell Keep was, in my eyes, the worst map in the classic Doom Series) but I really changed my mind about him here.

His work on Ep4 is immaculate and all of the references to Howard P. Lovecraft are great. The maps really fit the style of the Cthulhu Mythos. No surprise there, since Sandy is devout HPL fan himself (as am I).

If I had to pick my favorite map, it would probably be Elder God Shrine. It really makes me feel like I'm wandering through the remains of a lost civilization or sunken fortress. It kinda reminds me of R'lyeh.

Oh, and the music, holy molie! The soundtrack is the icing on the cake (I used a patch for Darkplaces, but I also have an old shareware disk). Trent Reznor did an awesome job. It perfectly fits; grim, mysterious and sometimes disturbing. My favorite tracks are Whispers (sometimes named The Hall of Souls) and Life (also occasionally referred to as The Hammer and Underneath)

I really had fun faking out the Shalraths and tricking them into blowing themselves up, which is exactly what I'm doing in the second screenie.

I never could get my head around vanilla Quake maps, had to no clip through a lot of them.

Custom maps though... there were some great custom maps made for Quake. PlanetQuake used to have a great system for reviewing and archiving them, no idea if any of that exists anymore :F

I hear you. Many of the gimmicks and tricks get annoying and stale after a while. I really get sick of having Fiends spammed up my ass. The Wizards (or Scrags, if you prefer) teleporting in for no real reason is pretty boring and predictable most of the time (I hate the sounds they make!). And the ogres. I hate it when a map overuses ogres. Ogres are my least favorite enemy. They're not hard enemies, just annoying. They run back and forth, usually in a hard to reach place, spamming grenades like noobs.

It's funny that you mention Castle of the Damned. I found that map rather irritating. They really seem to like ogres and spam them everywhere. The nail traps are pretty annoying too.

I personally like Ep1 the least. I like it, but it feels quite bland to me a lot of the time. Chthon sucks, too. He's too boring and way too easy. Actaully both bosses are awful and lazily done. I don't really like the tech base maps at the beginning of each episode either. The dogs and troopers are worthless and no challenge at all.

I suggest you use the ezQuake (http://ezquake.sourceforge.net/) QuakeWorld client for online play. DarkPlaces is pretty shit despite it having both NetQuake and QuakeWorld protocols.

Just finished Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth and...eh, really didn't like it very much.

The title tricked me into thinking it would be a Cthulhu creepfest.
As it turned out, the game is mostly composed of asshole traps, annoying gimmicks, and clumsy design decisions that make it barely playable for the most part. I did like a few parts of it, however.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't expect a masterpiece. I knew the game had a very mixed reception. I wanted to like the love the game, I really did. But every time I started to like a part of a game,  I ran into a new source of aggravation, be it gimmick, puzzle, or trap.

Synopses of the game gave me the impression it would a survival horror. I found myself trying to survive constant frustration, honestly.

The player character, Jack Walter, was a big reason the game irritated me. His personality is wooden, his dialogue is stale, and his voice acting is almost unbearable. He never seems to talk or act in a way that's appropriate to the given situation. His tone is deadpan, but not in a good way. He always sounds bored and dry, like the actor was on downers. A suggestion to video game developers, never ever hire this Milton Lawrence dude to play a protagonist.

Additionally, it feels to me like the lines for most of the VAs were done in one take. Surprisingly the game has prominent VAs like Ryan Drummond, Lani Minella, Jon St. John and Deem Bristow, and even they manage to sound bad.

The game beats the dead horse gimmick of stealing the player's weapons into the ground. It happens about four times.

The story makes very little coherent sense, none of the characters are very interesting or memorable, the AI is horrendous and the shoehorned stealth element is horrible.

The ending blows chunks too.

Ironically, the last arc of the game, Part 9, is the only one I can say a really enjoyed. That's mostly because I got to use a weapon that was interesting and didn't suck, the Yithian Lightning Cannon (you can see it in three of the screenies).

I'll be a little nicer now, though. The levels are very intricate and beautifully designed. The settings are all loyal to the Lovecraftian Mythos, the monsters look pretty cool, and the music is pretty nice.

If only the gameplay didn't suck so hard.

Oh hell yes such a good game

I didn't get scared or particularly deep into the story, but what I loved about it was how much of an adventure it felt like. How you can examine everything and you have to puzzle about with everything gave me a first person adventure game feeling. The amount of detail put into the environments as well as the interesting, if somewhat strange, medkit system... I got really immersed playing it and I really did love it. It went a very strange direction for calling itself a horror game though.

Also I didn't have any trouble with the stealth system, killed a lot of dudes and almost-dudes with the crowbar.

Post by: Trilkin on December 31, 2012, 10:58:48 AM
Er, yeah. I was too vitriolic in that post.

I now think I overstated my complaints.

I'll try to correct this right now.

My complaints about the puzzles are probably due to the fact that I'm a rather impatient person by nature. I suppose, now that I think about it, that most of the puzzles were fair and the fault was mine for not trying hard enough.
I suppose they were trying to make it feel Myst-like or something. It certainly has great atmosphere, I never denied that.

I can honestly can sort of see where they were going with the stealth portions. They weren't that bad I guess. But the skill required is spotty. Sometimes I could sneak by someone even though I could almost swear I was in plain sight. I did like stabbing guys with the dagger. It was fun to go back to the prison after getting the knife in Part 9 and taking revenge on the guards.

Blowing Dagon away with the Urania's main gun was pretty cool and the puzzle to kill Hydra was pretty creative, though a bit obtuse.

I'm not going to back away on some of my complaints about a few design decisions, however. The architecture, while very pretty, is sometimes misleading. The game tries to be an adventure-type game, but is overly restrictive. Many times I was misled, like in the gold vault with the Shoggoth. I had to slip through a room full of crates and I thought I could climb the crates and over a wall, but nope, invisible barrier. If you aren't meant to use the terrain to your advantage, then it shouldn't look like you can.

I also stand by my complaints about the main character. Having him superfluously commenting on every single thing he touches ("It won't budge."/ "Nothing of interest") was distracting. A text message would have done just fine.

I don't hate the game, I liked parts of it. But overall, it felt very rushed and unfinished to me.

The SKS is a thing of beauty...

Continuing on my RTS tear, I recently finished both campaigns for good old Red Alert 1.
The game is really fun, but the AI has aged poorly. The enemy can be attacking your base and your guards often won't respond on their own, even if the assailants are only a few squares away (my screenshot displays this quite nicely).

(http://i.imgur.com/QmOHPbM.png)

I'm currently playing the Soviet campaign for RA2 and am on the very last mission. I find the Soviets to be obscenely overpowered, much like they were in RA1. The Apocalypse Tank is especially ludicrous when fully ranked up.

This screen is from the mission Fox and the Hound where you capture the President.
I seem to have unintentionally caught Ray Wise with a rather ridiculous expression on his face. The shadows on his face make him look like he has a Vincent Price mustache.

By the way, I live close to San Antonio and I can state quite confidently that the area around the Alamo looks nothing like it does here.
On an unrelated note, the famous Ripley's Believe It or Not wax museum is right across the street from the Alamo.

So I'm currently playing through Muv Luv Alternative, OH GOD IS IT DEPRESSING. Seriously, nothing else has anything on this for making you feel all out terrible.
Imagine if in MGS Meryl died by having her face torn off. That's what this is like. Torn eyeballs tongues and all.

What really gets under my skin is that it starts out so normally, it lets you get to know characters for a long time before it throws everything into the fan... and that's what cuts so deep. It's easy to laugh off most deaths and stuff in media, or to let "psychological horror" roll off your back but... damn... not here.

Apologies for sounding like a pathetic emo, but MLA. The only game ever to give me a chronic case of the feels.

I'm playing...eh, some game or another, can't remember it's name.

I'm sure someone can recognize it from the screenshots.

I think it's one of those newfangled AAA titles or something. It sucks though! No cover-based mechanics, no blind-fire, no takedown animations, no killstreaks, no regenerating health. What's going on here???? Did the devs forget to put those things in?????

'Kay, enough of that.
In all seriousness, I haven't played this game in almost two years. Making up for it though, here and now. I'm amazed at how fresh the gameplay still is.

Still working my way though my RTS collection.

I recently finished both the original and expansion campaigns of the underrated and somewhat unfairly vilified Command and Conquer Generals.
It's quite a solid game, though at times it felt a bit unpolished to me.
(http://i.imgur.com/PMPJiau.jpg)

I'm now working my way through Starcraft. It's still great fun in spite of how old it is.

Here's me having General Duke solo an entire Zerg base with an SCV buddy to back him up with repairs (he won without much trouble). This was in the "Precursor" campaign (the demo missions).

And here's that scene everyone remembers - that first encounter with an Infested Command Center.

Generals was kinda a new thing and I still feel that the SP campaign/story did not have a leg to stand on in comparison to Tiberian and Red Alert anyway. That was something we can to expect from the series and it didn't deliver sexy cutscenes of A list actors chewing digital backdrops.

Trying to finish Red Alert 3 ("trying" being the keyword).
Finished the Soviet and Imperial campaigns, now I'm wrapping up the Allied campaign.
I wish I could make up my mind on how I feel about this game. It's been full of ups and downs for me.

And seemingly in Red Alert tradition for the Allies, I'm dropped in the middle of the action with no support to speak of. And my MCV can be crushed because it's been shrunk. What a pointless tactical decision. It's not like being shrunk makes your guys harder to see.

Brilliant design decision there.

One of the weirdest games I've ever played. It's pretty good, though. Better than I expected. It's a quirky game, but not in a bad way.

Monolith appears to have an inordinate fondness for it. Shogo is referenced several times throughout the FEAR series (the Armacham name was recycled as well as the heavy use of mechs by enemies, a secret room in Extraction Point plays the game's theme, and Snake Fist in Project Origin wears a shirt with the words Shogo 2).

Working my way through Brood War. I'm on mission 6 of Episode IV. These missions are pretty tricky, but are far more forgiving than Enslavers (bonus missions for vanilla Starcraft which are infamous for their punishing difficulty).

Here I Archon-rushed the hive clusters in mission 3. Archons are so cool, it's sinful. They're pretty cheap too in terms of mineral cost. They take a fair chunk of vespene, but you can raid geysers as long as you care to. I rarely worry about vespene. It's all about those magic blue crystals.

The 5th mission takes a hell of a long time to get done, especially for a schmuck like me who prefers to keep losses to a minimum. In game time, it took me about around 2 hours, but I suspect in real time it was more in the neighborhood of 3 and a half.

Played the Nod campaign in Tiberium Dawn. Now going through the GDI campaign.
(http://i.imgur.com/zCuYZdC.gif)

The game is great fun, but gets somewhat gimmicky and annoying on occasion.

When I say "gimmicky and annoying," I mean that some missions are set up more like tedious puzzles and depend more on incredibly specific actions than legitimate strategy.
If I sound like a whiner, I apologize in advance.

As an example of what I mean, in the penultimate Nod mission you have to get your MCV across a river. The only across is a small bridge, but two Mammoth super tanks are camped out right in frontof the bridge. Besides the MCv, all I've got are 2 Recon Bikes, 2 Buggies, and 1 Light Tank.
Turns out the only really way to proceed is to have your tank and buggies bait the Mammoths out of their positions and have them chase the 3 around the ridge. While that's happening, you need to have the bikes jump the Mammoths from behind, since their the only anti-armor support you get.

How are you supposed to figure that out without a guide?

The last Nod mission is no better. You're on a tiny-ass island in the upper left corner of the map, you start out with an MCV, a few rocket soldiers, a buggy, and an engineer.
The enemy attacks with a respectable force consisting of a small group of troops and a Medium Tank. Their immediate target is the engineer. Turns out that you need the engineer to capture a chopper the enemy flies over, because otherwise, you're trapped on the island.
Once you have that chopper and have built a small base, you have to use it to drop off troops and engineers to the other side of the river. I say this in theory, because the map design seems to imply that you're supposed to overtake the GDI secondary base to better deal with the primary GDI base at the botton of the map.

Taking over the sub-base is tricky. The only effective means I've found is saving up cash, taking over a GDi building, then immediately dropping in an Obelisk of Light right next to it. After taking out key enemy forces, I build up a trail of sandbags to a new position, drop in a new Obelisk, sell the old one, and eventually I'm good to go. I call it "Obelisk walking" (see screenshot).

Things get better once I'm able to build GDI hardware. Mammoths help a lot.

Finished the GDI campaign earlier today. Last mission wasn't too tough until it came to mopping up. At the very end I ended up having to hunt for 3 or 4 Ezekiel's Wheel Stealth Tanks. Trying to sniff out cloaked enemies with no effective way to detect them became tedious. I got 'em all, though.

I'm playing Thief: The Dark Project - Gold.

As far as I'm concerned, it's the best game of all time. It honestly has everything I look for in a game - suspense, intrigue, great stealth and sneaking, a bit of action on occasion, and a rich, imaginative world.

By the way, I'm looking forward to NOT playing Assassin's Creed Cash-in X: Thief Edition -- mrrm, I mean TH4EF, I mean THIEF. As far as I'm concerned, that cheap whore doesn't even deserve to be called by the series' name. It emphasizes action and rewards killing from what I've seen. Oh, an apparently it has an Instinct mode a la Hitman: Absolution. Whoop-dee-doo.

Oh, and Garrett's gone from a morally ambiguous character to a "re-imagining" as a Robin Hood-esque "hero" fighting against the "evil" autocratic dictator. So cliched. Way to condescend to fans of the series by making it an insultingly formulaic battle of "good" against "evil". Good work there, Squeenix.

I'm entering the latter portion of the Nod Campaign for Tiberium Sun.
Finished the 12th mission, Villainess in Distress, last night. In it, you have to break Slavik and Oxanna out of prison. With the Cyborg Commando on your side, it's a breeze. I must have spent an hour and a half wrecking everything.

I've finished both campaigns for Tiberium Sun. Before tackling Firestorm, I've decided to try to finish Renegade, which I've been playing on-and-off for a good while.

I can honestly say I can understand the "mixed" (read, polarized) response this game got.

The vehicle-centered sections are great, especially when you get to pilot the granddaddy of them all, the Mammoth. Everyone loves the Mammoth.

The classic quote from RA2...

"They will run in fear."
-Apocalypse Tank

...comes to my mind often.
(http://i.imgur.com/SxgvqYm.png)

Unfortunately, I have quite a different opinion about the on-foot sections. My impression is highly contextual. When you're by yourself, it's good clean fun. When you have to work with teammates, it's not very fun. When you have to escort someone, the gameplay turns to dogshit.

Escorting Mobius is one of the most annoying parts of the game. He runs like a cheetah on crack cocaine, often jumping between you and enemies. He also likes to take the lead, which kind of goes against the "escort" part of the mission.
Mercifully, he has an extremely powerful weapon and is a bigger bullet sponge than a Cyberdemon, so it's not insurmountable. But on the flip-side, he has a very high "pain chance" and will flail and twitch if ANYTHING hits him (even though he wears a powered suit than even Gordon Freeman would be jealous of), so he almost never ends up using his weapon.

I like exploring the enemy structures and poking around. I like how intricate the Hand of Nod is.
(http://i.imgur.com/BG5gypA.gif)

I also like all the little call-backs and references.
The characters are decently done, too. Havok is particularly memorable, and also hilariously arrogant (ie, "Where's my medal?").

Screenie is from the 3rd mission, "Ruins of Tarsonis," which I finished earlier today. Dealing with 4 Zerg clusters at once was a bit chaotic, but luckily you only need to destroy the hives. It takes a little planning to do, but getting to the hives is far from impossible. There are key gaps and weaknesses in the defenses. I got a little hesitant because there were so many blips on the map. I kind of made things harder for myself, because it looked harder than it really was.

Just finished the 5th mission "Emperor's Fall (Ground Zero)."

Had a rough time with this mission.
The objective is simply to take out the Emperor's command center.

It's nowhere near as easy as it sounds. Enemy air and ground defenses are extremely heavy and the static defenses have next to no chinks in their armor.

It took me almost 6 hours to finally destroy the command center.

I just couldn't find an efficient or elegant way to get the job done. I ended up turtling with Goliath and Siege Tanks to seize resource nodes (as shown in the screenshot), having to wade through considerable enemy resistance.

Then I began slamming outlying bases with nukes to cut a path. Then, when I finally breached defenses to Arcturus' headquarters, I sent in 4 Ghosts to level the building with a quad-nuke final strike.

You know, for a Bethesda game, and for a game that's open as it, Skyrim's world ALWAYS looks good. Even with static objects such as rocks and buildings optimised for Xbox 360 perfomance, it still somehow manages to make it work. Probably comes down to good texturing and lighting sets. Still, kudos Bethesda, you've finally made a game that doesn't look like Ugly and Ass. It's only taken you how long?

Finished the last mission Brood War Terran Campaign, To Chain the Beast a few minutes ago. It was epic!

Despite a very difficult and frustrating beginning, I made slow but steady progress and finally overcame. I came to actually LOVE the mission. It was tense and difficult, yet a thrill ride at the same time. I loved it.

Not only do you have to capture the second Zerg Overmind, you gotta deal with 3 Cerebrates bristling with defenses all around. Additionally, there a sunken colonies that are invincible until you kill the red Cerebrate. As a final bug in your ass, the brown Cerebrate commands the nastiest motherfucker in the Zerg ground forces -- an elite Ultralisk called the Torrasque! This guy is crazy, a veritable battleship on legs. He not only takes a insane amount of punishment (he's fully ranked up at level 3 by default for all upgradable states, is quite fast, and totes 800 HP), he also reincarnites continually for as long as the brown Cerebrate stays in the running.

Torrasque is frustrating to deal with, but I found a slight workaround. It's a beloved familiar strategy to Terran players - walling. I used the base buildings themselves to cordon off my base and parked a large number of Seige tanks behind them. With Valkyries to cover the flanks from the occasion air attack and a few Battlecruisers on stand-by, I eventually dug myself into a comfortable position.

I found it easiest to prioritize the Zerg hive clusters by nearness to my base. I took out the red Cerebrate first, hammering him with Battlecruisers (closely escorted by about 6 Valkyries). His ground defense is cosniderable. There's not a single chink in his wall of Sunken Colonies (their invincible anyway, so attacking from the ground is pointless). However, his air cover and static AA is pathetic. Only a scant few Spore colonies are in his base and they're turkeys against the Battlecruiser's Yamato Cannon.

After quickly mopping up the red base with the BCs laser batteries, I moved my air battalion to the east canyons and dispatched a force of around 6 Siege tanks accompanied by 10-15 marines, 2-3 medics, and 4 Goliaths. I turtled slowly having to viciously pound my way to the brown Cerebrates doorstep. It gave me a perverse joy to crush the Cerebrate when I came into Seige mode range, at long last.

I mopped up the brown base, then very carefully turtled my Battlecruisers pixel by pixel until I reached the Spore colonies of the orange Cerebrate to the northeast, just over a ridge from the brown base. Once clear, I slammed by sent my air forces through the breach and mad dash for the orange Cerebrate, crushing him without much trouble. Mutalisks and Scourge tried to stop me, but they were no match for my Valkyries. With all the base having gone dormant, I spent more than an hour enjoying myself, slowly cutting apart the Zerg remnants piece by piece. It gave me quite a bit of exultant joy wreaking havoc on them after all the pain they put me through.

Progressing slowly but steadily through the Zerg campaign of Brood War.

Finished the sixth mission, The Fury of the Swarm, yesterday.
Whoa, it was a rather hard one. Well, for a while anyway. UED's got a small base controlling their two slave Zerg brood contingents who have respectable bases built up. Additionally, the slave broods blitz all of your outlying bases.

Luckily, taking out the Zerg main bases is unnecessary. The real objective is to kill all 30 scientists coordinating the attacks.

Dealing with the incessant attacks and the scientists takes quite a bit of slush cash, so seizing resource nodes is paramount.

Your supposed to retake the resource nodes, but working against 2-3 sub-bases is a bit tedious and irritating. I did manage to cheese the slave broods' expansion attempts. I killed the orange force's drones. For some reason, they never sent new drones. Eh, fine by me - I'm willing to be as cheap as the game is to me. Took 3 resources node for myself, then did what the Zerg are best at...overwhelming through sheer numbers.

I sent in 6 dozen mutalisks and threw everything at the UED base. That ended the mission well enough. Finally disposing of the scientists was quite rewarding for all the aggrevation. That splattered corpse on the far right was the last scientist.

Whew. Finished Brood War Zerg mission 7: Drawing of the Web earlier today. Not the hardest mission I've ever done, but it feels like busywork for the most part with the AI constantly distracting you with heavy attack waves that can cripple you if you aren't expecting them.

There's no way to put down the enemy attacks for good because their HQ, the city of Talemantros is on an inaccessible plateau and is totally inviolate.

That's not the annoying part. The annoying part is that you can't use any offensive air units at all. All you get are Overlords and Queens. As an added insult by the designer, you can't even built a Spire to beef up the armor of those two unit types, though I suppose it's a moot point.

Your supposed to get Duran to all the beacons. I found mass attacking with fully upgraded Hydralisks (40+) worked the best, constantly reinforcing with even more Hydras to bring down the hammer.

The AI attacks are of respectable strength, but seem overconfident and more bent on annoying the Hell of you than destroying you.  A force of about 20-30 full upgraded hydras at your base seem to be able to overcome anything in the computer's arsenal.

I've always loved Hydralisks. They're my favorite Zerg unit and they're good for just about anything.

*Sigh* Jumpin' bullshit, up next is to Slay the Beast, reputedly one of the most brutal missions of the entire series. According to some people, To Slay the Beast is even worse than the final mission in Brood War, Omega. Oh dear.

Finished Silent Storm yesterday, a strategy turn based game based in WW2 where the Allies and Axis tries to find out a secret weapon created by a third faction dedicated to rule the world, it even has a robot suit (Panzerkleins), haven't got a screenshot yet since there's no screenshot button and print screen is rather wacky.

I hate the fact that sometimes during my turn ingame when i suddenly found an enemy, an "Interrupt" turn happened where the enemy is allowed to act, usually leaving behind my teammates with more holes than before or just plain disintegrated.

Final mission's a jerk, unless you have a beam weapon, a panzerklein with a beam weapon, or something beam related, you're screwed fighting the final boss.

Well, okay then. Finished To Slay the Beast yesterday.

Not as bad as I expected, honestly. Surprisingly, I found it to be significantly easier than other missions I've previously played, most notably the Enslavers missions (*shudder*). I doubt anyone's heard of much less played the little known pre-Brood War expansion, Starcraft: Insurrection. There were many mssions in it that were worse than To Slay the Beast.

The problem with this mission is that is a fairly large map with about six bases, all blending Zerg and Terran tech trees to some extent or another.

There's all kinds of crazy shenanigans and interplay between the UED Slave Broods and their UED masters. You got medics healing Ultralisks, Overlords transporting Firebats, Hydralisks upoorting Firebats and Marines, Drones dropping off minerals at Command Centers, SCVs collecting resources and dropping them at Hives, Valkyries and Devourers teaming up, Guardians and Battlecruisers side by side...it's pretty crazy.

The annoying part is holding out in order to assemble a large enough fighting force. Using aggressive tactics and overwhelming numbers pays off richly in this mission.

Goodness, i had a blast playing while re-modding The Gate, had to do some modifications at first since i have the modder's curse (Where i practically modify almost every mod i encounter with either HD models, sound editing, and possibly map editing.) and the mod sometimes a little bonkers, but the mod was simply amazing when i did.

Here's what i experience playing this mod, don't read it if you haven't played it cause, SPOILERS!

I used Simon's model from Cry of Fear for the main character, of course edited quite a lot, i didn't like how Businessman-like John was, he was no longer with the army, no sign of jobs from where i'm seeing, and i'm pretty sure in that cold house he lives in, he'd probably wear a sweater.

Funny how the girl looked more like a hooker than an actual military personnel, replaced it of course with the secretary from HoE : NE.

Egypt, 1942, when he said to find a weapon, i found both an axe and a pickaxe in perfect condition i couldn't pick up, i changed that when i went through the files, broken, clumsy, unable to be used perfectly unless you're a master in crappy weaponry.

The traps were really easy, i just looked at the German files on the table, shot the floors which doesn't trigger the traps with me Luger, and just walked through, the axe trap is easy, the spear traps were a little tricky, but when i studied the lights, again, just walked through.

Sneaking is wonky, they should have just add a sense of stealth, instead of really just trying stealth, like crouching behind a row of enemy which impossible to see you unless you run or walk right in front of them instead of actually studying a single man patrol when obviously the guy would see you even before he even turned around 90 degrees full, funny thing even when i shot a SINGLE rifle round, the alarm sounded, but when i shot about 50+ round of my STG44 (Couldn't find a drum mag for the STG44 yet, still searching) to the guy at the tower, and only after he sees me the alarm rang.

Meeting with Anna was a lil' weird, i feel like she's actually a traitor at first who gave me away when i took her assignment, i somewhat just want to shoot her when i got back to the house, but she turns out to be nice, the main character just decide to have a relationship with her, and they got "busy" in French, how cliche.

The secret agent's little operation just bit me where it hurts, the battlefield just have to be, my most hated level EVER in any good Half-Life mod, bad levels in bad mods i can live with, but this map, 2 machine gunners, 1 tank, a bunch of grenade spammer idiots who just happened to headshot me from a mile while i miss with my freaking Scoped 98K, enemy spawns after i placed the radio, only a couple health packs, and the secret agent got me caught by the nazis right after that pain in the butt mission before even letting me grab the medkit on the truck he carried me with, curse you Craig John Beattie.

Prison level and French is wacky, the original HGrunt models were Afrika Korps, what is Afrika Korps doing in the snowy French? Not even wearing a winter coat, i see my SS-like HGrunt (Red's Timeline Trooper modified with an STG44.) fit the bill more.

The prison level is annoying, again i have to slowly and steadily move as i'm aiming down an MG42 position on the tower just to blow up the power line, and doing all that crud on the next maps with the gear, the backtracking, the water sewaging just to open a gate, how complicated are these nazis!?

French is just crazy, a tank is hunting me, i had to use barrels to avoid an MG42 position i couldn't take out even with grenades and dynamites (Satchel replacement, comes with a detonator i edited from a couple of models, SvenCoop longuse animation, and the mod's hands.) to get to a sewer where i met Anna.

Fine lil' thing on the next mission where i have to sink a sub, too bad the sub didn't really sank since the level designer couldn't put the sub with a slow moving func_door, and John spoke UNDERWATER when he placed the bomb, again, hilarious.

And finally, i get to heil Hitler with a bullet right in the middle of his face at the Bismark, before torching the boat and escaping with my life, only to come to a predictable and cliche ending ever.

Suffice to say, i couldn't wait for The Gate 2, which i heard has finished mapping and currently doing scripting and stuff.

What do you guys think about the mod?

Renegade, i remember playing that some months ago, i remember trying to destroy a hand of Nod with an Assault Rifle once, until i remember to just simply wreck the controls inside, strafing with a tank to blow up an obelisk, and trying to keep my weak teammates alive in SP.
It had a stealth gameplay at one part, but i forgot what happened there.
It's really funny at the final missions i think when the intercom asks all of the intruder to report to a detention center or something, and i keep dying there due to mutants, snipers, and the guys with the laser miniguns.

Finally finished Brood War a few days ago.

It made me feel pretty good to finally beat Omega, the last mission of the game.

Not much for me to say other than it took a lot of time and patience as well as tons of trial and error.

For me the mission dragged on and on.

Of the three bases, I found that the Protoss base gave me to most grief. There's really no clean or efficient way to take it out other than to slam it again and again and again.

Two things turned the tide for me. First the Protoss ran out of minerals and their unit production dramatically faltered. Second, I managed to destroy both Nexuses and all of their probes. A two-pronged attack did the trick for me. A wing of about 12-15 Guardians for each Nexus did the trick for me.

I also used an unusual strategy (first screenshot) to distract the Probes and base defenders.
I deployed a Hatchery on a platform immediately behind the Protoss base, just within range of their Assimilsator. I deployed some colonies, with a Sunken attacking the Assimilator. when the defenders came running up, a wing of Guardians mowed them down.

When I finally got both Nexuses and all their Probes, things got much better.

The ending of the game is pretty epic, I gotta say.

Omega was legitimately challenging, but I still say that Enslavers was worse than any BW mission.

Been playing The Trap mod for Half-Life, in Hardcore, trying to get all the achievements to see the alternate ending.

It's interesting how this mod is almost like Portal, as some people have said it to be, amazing puzzles, gameplay mechanics, and such.

And how the difficulties actually does affect the entire game by itself.

Boss fights were amazing too!

I finally got all of the achievements, and the extra ones.

I'm tired, gonna go play Reaktor's other mod, Prison, now.

Btw, i kinda searched around in The Trap files for some secrets, and one of the voice for The Trap's supervisor said (voice_whoami.wav reversed.), he's GLaDOS's brother. Mind blown.

Hooked on Titanfall. Been a long time since I played PC games online (since Half Life).
It's been months since I played anything online (what with limited internet etc). Maybe this'll sound weird, but not having games around has made me feel so much more upbeat and stuff this isn't something I'll mention in a job interview

That said, I did briefly enjoy playing Ninjatown on the DS. It's a tower defence game, which I usually have a lot of time for.
If Robbe still posted here he'd probably call me a casual old lady or something :V

Just finished replaying an old but gold favorite of mine. Besides Thief, Deus Ex is like my favorite game ever.

On this playthrough, I used the Hejhujka Hardcore mod.

Here's a link if your interested.

http://www.moddb.com/mods/hardcore-dx

The mod provides many new gameplay tweaks and perks. The biggest draw are the weapons - nearly all have at least two modes of firing.

Many of the "Scrappy weapons" have been refitted and are now more effective.

I'll explain some of the changes.

A few examples...

The Sawed-Off Shotgun is given a dramatic overhaul, becoming a rapid and extremely versatile street sweeper that can chew up even the toughest enemies when used right.

The Assault Shotgun is now a Sabot Cannon. It fires caseless high-speed rounds that are truly crushing at close range. It is effective against all targets and is an effective interdictor against those pesky Mini-Spider bots and the smaller security bots. Alt-fire chucks out a sabot frag round, vicious against infantry and very helpful against bots.

The Stealth Pistol is now one of the most effective weapons in the game when used correctly.
It has three firing modes - semi-auto, burst, and full auto.

The Assault Rifle, arguably one of the best weapons in vanilla DX, is even more effective. It fires high-speed caseless rounds and has dramatically less recoil, better base accuracy and a higher ROF. It still has the 20mm HE launcher. The launcher can be fired with alt-fire key now, negating the need to use the "Change Ammo" function. The only downside is that the grenades don't seem as effective against bots as before. They also are somewhat unpredictable as they bounce instead of exploding on contact. They are brutally effective against infantry though.

The PS20 is changed from a one-use plasma zip gun to a rapid-fire energy micro-pistol that stuns enemies, allowing for more effective non-lethal attacks, even at long range. It's also helpful at jamming security cams and guns. It can disable bots, too. It's so versatile and flexible that it largely replaces tradition non-lethals, like the baton and crossbow.

The laser weapon mod is now always active. No more need to switch it on every time you use a weapon equipped with it.

The Plasma gun is effectively retooled to function like the ASMD gun from Unreal. Primarily fire lays down a thin, flat beam able to hit targets from incredible distances. Alt-fire without a scope shoots a round plasma mass that hits with a small AOE damage radius. Very effective against clustered enemies. With a scope, the gun can sense and fire upon enemies through walls, like the super rifles from Eraser.

The Dragon's Tooth/Non-Eutactic Blade can be hurled at enemies like the sabre throw from Jedi Outcast.

The 10mm Austin has a bit more stopping power and can also be dual-wielded (tap the alt-fire button to pull out the second pistol) a la John Preston from Kurt Wimmer's Equilibrium (which I highly recommend by the way).

The Pepper Gun now is a Biotoxin gun. The Biogun fires a glob of gel that explodes after a few seconds and releases knockout gas. A point blank hit is almost a guaranteed easy KO on most enemies.

Those are just a few of the new weapon features. There's much more where that came from.

These weapons may sound like they'd let you cheese the game. Well, you're wrong there because this mod is tough as nails, largely because the regular NPCs/enemies have received a massive overhaul. There are also new enemies that will make life much harder.
The enemies are able to (and most certainly WILL) use every single weapon and attack you can. Never underestimate the enemies. Even the lowliest enemy can take you by surprise.

Oh, and bots are worse than ever. They can withstand much, much more damage than before. It can often take as many as 4 EMP grenades or LAMs to kill them. They will chew you up and spit you out. They will put the fear of God into you.

I'll detail the enemies.

NSF Officer a.k.a. NSF Member - Better-trained and tougher NSF variant, with higher battle skills and weaponry. Many seem fond of using throwing knives to devastating effect.
UNATCO Officer - A more elite variant of the regular UNATCO troopers. Have higher battle skills and better weaponry.
MJ12 Mechanic - Like regular mechanics, but not friendly at all. Love to use shotguns, heavy weapons, and throwing knives.
MJ12 Sergeant a.k.a. MJ12 Officer - More elite variants of the MJ12 Troopers. Have more health, better training, and better weapons.
MJ12 Researcher - Wolves in sheep's clothing to be sure. Look very similar to normal scientists, but don't be fooled. These tough - likely augmented - assholes always carry devastating weaponry and take an annoying amount of punishment. They don't even panic when they're on fire!
Have no pain chance and cannot be stunned by rapid attacks.
MJ12 Security Agent - Tough jack-of-all-trade enemies, somewhat of a compromise between Commandos and MIBs (without the self-destruct). Bald guys in blue suits with sunglasses. Not the most dangerous enemies, but still quite dangerous. Seem fond of Rifles. Somewhat rare. Seen at Versalife posing as security guards, in Vandenberg aiding in the attack, and in the Missile Silo guarding Howard Strong.
MJ12 Special Security Bot - Uses an unused varient of the security bot. Incredibly dangerous and somewhat fast, with rapid-fire plasma cannons.
Detonator Bots - Basically CleanerBots rigged with attack protocols and strapped with explosives. They don't do much damage, but work in numbers, are very annoying, and often alert more powerful enemies when they detonate.
Dark Maiden - Pale-skinned, white-blond women in black combat armor that serve as elite black operatives for MJ12. Extremely fast, highly weapon-proficient, and well-armored. Very fond of Stealth pistols and mini-crossbows. Have no pain chance and cannot be stunned by rapid attacks.
Augmented Elite Commando a.k.a. Augmented Merc - The absolute elite of the elite. Big, tall, clean-shaven, chrome-domed guys in trenchcoats worn over assault gear. Though called mercs, they actually resemble JC in appearance and may be one-off clones of him. Extremely fast, very heavily armored, devastatingly proficient with weapons. They also sport numerous augmentations which they can and mostly certainly WILL abuse. Unequivocally and without question the most dangerous enemy in the game. Nothing except a Military Bot takes more damage than them. They also have no pain chance, so rapid-fire weapons will not stun then. As a final insult, if you manage to kill one, he self-destructs and damages everything within a large AOE. Think of him like the regular commando combined with a bot and an MIB/WIB. As a final annoyance, they are quite common for such high-powered enemies.

There are many other changes and surprises, even a few new augs.
I suggest you give it a try. Very hard gameplay, but rewarding.

Nice. I love Red Alert 2.
The Rhino has always been one of my favorite units.

Target sighted!
Attacking!
WE WILL BURY THEM!"

(BTW, the Rhino is voiced by Grant Albrecht, who voiced The End from Metal Gear 3 and Crypto from Destroy All Humans)

Well now, don't I have egg on my face?

After complaining about Splinter Cell's game mechanics alongside Alex on page 10 of this thread, I'm finding myself enjoying the game quite a bit.

I'm not gushing over these pictures at all (except I totally am).

Two Tupolev Blackjacks, a Kiev-class aircraft carrier, and (I think) an Oscar or Sierra-class sub...makes me wanna read Red Storm Rising again. (Also two T-27 tanks.)

Replayed Doom 3 and ROE recently with the Absolute HD mod from ModDB.

Had to tweak it a bit further since most weapons still can't be switched from if currently in a reloading animation.

Was pretty fun, veered way off from the original 1 and 2, but atleast pretty acceptable.

Here's hoping the new Doom doesn't suck.

Finished the sequel, Poke646: Vendetta.
While much shorter, it's very satisfying and does away with a few of the annoying gimmicks in the first installment (namely artificial lengthening tricks like making you walk on frustratingly tiny ledges and windowsills).

Well, it's certainly been a while since I dropped in. My new job has kept me very busy, so I haven't had as much time for gaming. But I've been making the time I do have worth it.

I've been revisiting yet another favorite franchise of mine, the Journeyman Project.

This trilogy of classic adventure games is about the trevails of Gage Blackwood, agent (and later Captain) of the Temporal Security Agency, also called the Temporal Security Annex and the Temporal Protectorate.
The TSA's objective is rather obvious, protect history and the time/space continuum from abuse by the recently discovered technologies of time travel.

The meat of the games mostly involve puzzles, but occasionally, you do run in to action sequences (after a fashion) and time challenges (to the player's possible dismay).

The games were made by Presto Studios, which also made such titles as Whacked!, Myst III: Exile, and Myst: Masterpiece Edition.

The first installment was The Journeyman Project. The game was quirky but well-loved by its players. It was later rereleased with many updates as The Journeyman Project: Turbo!.

After the release of the sequel (which constituted a quantum leap as far as production values were concerned), Presto Studios took apart JP1 and remade it from the ground up, almost creating an entirely new game. Called The Journeyman Project: Pegasus Prime, it came with new details, features, challenges, and cameos by characters that would appear later in the series. The most notable cameo is by Canadian actress Michele Scarabelli, recognizable from the cult classic sci-fi movies Alien Nation.

She plays Agent 3, one of Gage's co-workers. She's pretty cheesed off here because you were supposed to relieve her from her shift and you're very late (and it's not the first time, long story...).
(http://i.imgur.com/Us1vB0x.jpg)

Despite all the advancements and nifty way-cool features, Pegasus Prime didn't sell very well. It was also only released for certain Mac systems. A Playstation version was planned, but later scrapped.
For many years, simply finding a copy was quite the quest. Because it was so rare, hard copies demanded ludicrous prices on the net. In addition, you had to be a Mac user to even run the game. Well, either that or break out the emulators, a spotty state of affairs to say the least.
However, just this year, Tommy Yune, a key JP team member rallied together a special team of associates and set to work updating the game yet again. They whipped it into shape and it now supports modern Windows and Mac OS setups. It also incorporates features and details cut from the unreleased Playstation version.

Your overall mission in JP1 is to prevent a global catastrophe from comping about. A sinister plot has been hatched to kill an alien ambassador and wipe out the chief capital of Earth, the floating sky city of Caledoria. The threads of the conspiracy stretch into the past and beyond. A fair warning, this game is tricky, sometimes deviously so. Guides almost certainly will be needed at some point, as a choice few puzzles are so ridiculously difficult.
Prime is unequivocally the most difficult of all the games, but is extremely rewarding when you triumph.

The next game, Buried in Time, takes place ten years after the conclusion of the first game. You are meet by a future version of you, who reveals that someone is trying to frame you for abusing time travel technology. Why is not immediately clear, but ultimately culminates in an epic chase across the past and into the far future, from Chichen Itza to a forgotten space station in Saturn's orbit.

It also introduces a delightfully pop-culture-savvy and hilariously snarky AI named Arthur who joins you and aids in the adventure.

This screen shot shows the expansive Temple Complex at Chichen Itza, a critical location of the game.
(http://i.imgur.com/hkJB7sl.png) (http://imgur.com/hkJB7sl)

The 3rd game, The Legacy of Time, was the first game of the series I played and it consumed countless hours of my childhood. Nostalgia for JP3 spurred me into purchasing it again as well as the other two titles. Sadly, Legacy was the final installment in the series. A fourth, tentatively call Resurrection was planned but never materialized. The demise of Presto Studios played a part in this, but a drastic shift in the gaming market was also responsible.

In Legacy, the TSA has been suspended due to fallout from a scandal spurred in the previous game. The suspension comes at the worst possible time. A severe distortion wave is detected and it threatens to rewrite history. Equipped with a new experimental time-suit, you disobey orders and chase down the source of the distortion only to find it linked to an old enemy who has discovered a shattering secret in the past. So shattering that the culprit is willing to turn themself in in exchange for you witnessing the discovery. It leads you to the discovery that two races have secretly been battling for centuries to find several remarkable artifacts left to the civilizations of three lost cities of legend. You travels take you to El Dorado, Atlantis, and Shangri-La (also called Shambala). In a welcome twist, Arthur returns to once again accompany you on your time hopping adventures.

Screenie shows the destroyed lost city of Shangri-La. The adorably goofy-looking critter in the lower right corner of the interface is Arthur's avatar.

In JP2 and JP3, Arthur is voiced by comedian Matt Weinhold, who also wrote Arthur's lines for the game.

All three games are available right now on GOG.com for ridiculously low prices.

Speaking of Metro...


Recently tried playing "The Stalin Subway" with this mod i made, since the computer i'm using is quite old, i didn't really have too much problem playing the game as with other people (Black textures or Audiere.dll.).

I pretty much treat this game as if i was playing a realistic HL mod (Ops 1942), so, going through the game wasn't that difficult in my opinion, crouching actually increased the accuracy of some weapons, ricochet is useful is some areas and deadly in others, the PTRS is one fun weapon to use.

I actually had fun playing this, and can fully understand why a sequel was made.


But GOD! The second game, Red Veil, screw that!

I decide to foolishly install the game yesterday and was figuratively SLAPPED by the developers!

That game has worst mechanics than the first one :

- They got rid of the green/brown crates (Source of health/ammo.), good luck getting to the next level with more than 20 health since enemies drop health less.
- They added a rail shooter level where you can only see about 30 degrees, so, if the enemy goes behind your car, you're screwed since you can't shoot the bloody arses! And they really did literally spawned a crap-ton of enemies FROM BEHIND! And enemy cars that want to KAMIKAZE TOWARDS YOUR CAR LIKE HOMING TORPEDOES!
- They decided it'll be funny to troll the player by spawning enemies BEHIND players from time to time! WITH NO WARNING WHATSOEVER!
- They're apparently masochistic enough to add an excruciating escort mission where even though you've laid waste on the area as if you're friggin' Chernobyl, if you left the VIP for even a second, an enemy will literally SPAWN RIGHT NEXT THE VIP AND BLAST HIM!
- Also, the VIP in the escort mission walks slowly due to injury, add that to the list of annoying.
- Limited weapon capabilities (3 weapons, no more.) unlike the first one that gives you access to all weapons.
- The PPSH actually shares ammo with the AK-47 (Seriously, i was facepalming hard when i saw this, Stalin Subway 1 didn't do this).
- The first level literally spawns enemies in front of you, granted, Stalin Subway 1 did this too, but they gave us time to reload the gun first and taking cover before the enemy spawns, NOT HERE, NO SIR, i was splattered with Shpagin bullets before i could even rechamber my god damn Browning pistol.
- Some areas that i'm not supposed to go through is placed with 1 or 2 enemies that have their damage output increased to 999, normal enemies would normally have to blast a crap-ton of bullets before putting me down, one mere soldier standing in a place where i'm not supposed to go can put me down with one makarov bullet even when i have like 100 health AND armor, that is a horrible way to have players go where you want them to go.
- The voice acting is EVEN WORSE than the first one, they replaced pretty much all of the original voice actors that has average sounding voices with voice actors with shit sounding voices.
- Once again, the translator of the game needs to be SHOT!


Those mechanics piss me the hell off, causing me to sometimes cheat out of frustration, which is kinda sad because i sort of liked some of the levels in that game, the music even though it doesn't fit with the Soviet style era was quite still enjoyable to some extent, and i kinda liked the end part where the VIP finally has a gun and can protect his own sorry arse, along with the sniping parts.

I'll be replaying the first one today with the Hard difficulty, and the second one with Easy, i just hope that the previous frustration can actually be extinguished with the lower difficulty curve.



EDIT :

Holy Bolshevik on a Stick! It's true! The second game is actually enjoyable in Easy mode! Red Square gone through first try! Escort mission, also first try! Only one quick load!

Even though it's actually really fun this time, i still stand by my previous statement, Red Veil is still a disappointment to the first one.

Oh hi, guys.

Just replaying one of the greatest game franchises ever - Hitman!!

Finished Codename 47 very quickly.

I'm currently working through Silent Assassin. Currently in the arc of Japanese missions. The one I just finished, Tracking Hiyamoto, is pretty damn good. I like tampering with young Hiyamoto's fugu. Nothing more fun than offing a bad guy by making it look like an accident.

...stab this Spetnaz agent so hard that he lifts him bodily into the air! Yes, 47 is so badass that he breaks the laws of physics.

Yeah, Silent Assassin.

Tried to get the perfect score on all levels a couple months ago.

As one might expect, the journey ends on Hidden Valley.

Either it's the snipers (Who apparently can see through a disguise because they're psychics for some reason.), the arses checking IDs in the tunnel, the random chance of someone getting run over by the truck resulting in mission failure, or plain old stupidity on my part.

Post by: Trilkin on December 21, 2014, 07:09:31 PM
Humorously enough, I actually had an easier time than I expected on Hidden Valley, that is - I cheesed it big time. Following an amusing comment I read on a YouTube video, this is what I did - I grabbed the crossbow and a ninja disguise, then ran back to near the start, holstered the crossbow and jumped into the truck near the start. Then I faced the front ofthe truck and did nothing else else until I was right at the end of the mission!
Pretty amusing that such a thing actually worked.

I then went on to finish the Japanese arc and quite enjoyed the other missions. Shogun Showdown was actually quite enjoyable.

I'm currently on Tunnel Rat. This one's pretty fun, but regardless I'll be quite happy to be done with the Sandland - I mean Middle East missions.

The geography in this particular arc is rather hilarious if you're the least familiar with the area mentioned.

It takes place in Nuristan, a sub-province of Afghanistan - which looks nothing like what you see in the game. It's neither pan-flat nor desert-like or dusty. Actually Nuristan is rather green and lush. Oh well, artistic license and all that, I suppose.

The one thing i was a bit disappointed about Silent Assassin is the final level, "Redemption at Gontranno", where the majority of stealth is USELESS there.

All guns blazing 'till the big bad dies.

Of course, it might be just me being stupid and all.

Yeah, basically.
I think they did this mostly because the "gunfights in church" setup looks cool. Whether it IS cool depends on your taste. It's certainly jarring if you've spent the whole game going for SA on each mission.

Although, I find a certain catharsis in letting loose after going through the whole game sneakily.

(http://i.imgur.com/ZuBeZpV.png)
I actually went to the trouble of sneaking up on a bodyguard, killing him, and taking his Beretta. Then gunned down about half a dozen guys who ran up to investigate. Then went to the shed.
Spent the rest of the mission sniping guys with the good ol' MP-5. Finished Sergei off with the Ballers.

(http://i.imgur.com/QXPo3hF.png)
(http://i.imgur.com/Qdbzoz9.png)

I've always found the ending a little sad, because it implies that 47 will always be a man apart from others, that he will never find any peace.
This was the first of the series I played and it's probably still my favorite of the series. I guess I like it so much because it shows a more human and vulnerable side to 47, buried beneath the steel nerves and iron will.

Post by: zikshadow on December 24, 2014, 03:48:20 PM
Yes, it does feel relaxing after going through mission, saving/loading/restarting to an insane amount because i couldn't get SA because of this or that, and then put out the big guns and go KABOOM on the Custom WA2000 weilding sniper arses.

Funny enough, i tried charging the first guy in RaG, and i somehow choke him from the FRONT, i was shocked that this was possible, of course, it may be just me charging at him clicking the garrote button furiously...

Then i fought my way to the gun shed where i then later let loose with the M60...



Now i kinda feel like i should finish Blood Money, have not finished it yet.

But alas, it'll have to wait, since now i'm playing Mirror's Edge.

It's quite disorienting when you play a platformer game after you finished another, due to the experience of the previous game that sometimes transfer to the next.

Managed to get to the Docks without the red-runner-vision-modern-tr-white-ledge-like-cheat thingy.
Got REALLY confused at some parts because of that though.
But, all is well with time, patience, and a number of dead bodies due to stress after getting shot dozens of times while climbing a pipe.

Just finished Hitman: Blood Money.

Great game, though the ending was a bit meh. Though I've played the game once before, I still feel let down by how lame of a villain Mark Parchezzi was. The game itself, as well as promos and especially trailers in particular, played him up as a badass rival to 47. Too bad that was just baiting.

Man, fuck the second Hitman game. Just standing still in front of another guard for 5 seconds, while disguised as one, will instantly alert everyone and their mom. Simply pulling out your gat and clearing the entire map is, for me, the best way to advance while keeping your sanity in check. Trying to get the SA rating got tiring real fast so I went on to install and play Contracts. The very first mission where you basically just walk out the hospital is already more entertaining than what I've played of HM2.

Been some time since I've last played Blood Money, but remember it as being a good game. Yeah Mark blows. He comes off as a gay, ripped but snooty old guy with a big ego. The best bit is one-hitting him with the sniper rifle, if you're willing to hump that (and if I remember correctly that is).

Shooting him with the sniper rifle is perfectly feasible. In fact, from videos I've watched, it's heavily favored (mostly cause the player and Mark slinging lead across the roof at each other with pistols and SMGs is painfully tedious).

Hilariously enough, I used an LPer's suggestion to drop a remote mine behind the A/C units where Mark hides beforehand then trigger it when he gets into position. With an upgraded detonator you can drop him without even having to get in range or fire a single shot (also, a karmic piece of payback for him trying to blow you up in the Oval Office).

Yes, that's right. Mr. Scary Albino Assassin doesn't even bother to check around his feet for traps.

It's probably a game limitation... or perhaps the developers didn't consider it, or maybe it was even intentional, but it still glaringly stands out and highlights perfectly that for all his smug bluster, Mark simply can't back up his boasts.

Almost done with Bioshock. Like what I've seen so far. A worthy spiritual successor to System Shock 2 and a great FPS/RPG hybrid.

Creepy yet cool enemies? Love 'em.
Crazy awesome powers? Love 'em.
A fantastical and improbable setting? Very much love it!
Nostalgic big band music, inculding "Beyond the Sea" (one of my favorite songs) - icing on the cake.
Eleventh-hour escort mission?  Er...kinda kills my buzz, I'm not gonna lie.

Great game, regardless.

Edit: Alright, finished. I'm not sure what to think of the final confrontation with Atlas. He looks and sounds awesome and he has quite a few nasty tricks. But...once I got the lay of the land, er, arena, I was able to cut him down with a bit of effort. Not nearly as much effort as I expected. Oh well, game over. All's well that ends well.

I chose the "good" path and got a nice heartwarming ending that made all my troubles worth it.

Finished Bioshock 2 a few minutes ago. Very satisfying.

Many, many players despise it and say it's A lame disappointment. I didn't find it disappointing in the slightest.

To be perfectly frank, I think I enjoyed it slightly more than the first game.
I felt like it played and flowed smoother than Bioshock 1, had better pacing, more action, had more interesting weapons, and had a narrative almost as interesting as the first.

A wonderfully "love-to-hate" villain as well. Sofia Lamb somehow manages to be more of a monster than Andrew Ryan and Atlas combined!!

Oh, and I absolutely-positively adore Gil Alexander/Alex the Great!

If there's one thing I love, it's a hammy villain.

What a funny coincidence, i actually was just finished playing this :

(http://i1356.photobucket.com/albums/q727/ZikShadow/Wuffenstein_zpsfd1ff748.jpg)

Played it with a HD pack that i put together from others, so, pardon the different look.

I had fun playing it, for the most part.

Except the first stealth mission, screw THAT, large open area where you can't see the enemy, but somehow, they notice you from miles away, alarming the entire compound in seconds, must be that bright allied uniform BJ is using.

The second stealth mission is kinda okay though, with the ability to lean with the flat buildings instead of uneven terrain where leaning too much can blow your cover and everything, felt like any stealth game i played with the lean/walk-sprint/walk/crouch/knife/sten/snooper/luger.

The secrets are a bit underwhelming though, yeah, you get the usual treasures, but without W3D's scoring system and the end game stats, it's a bit disappointing somehow, i just don't feel rich, nor the wish to find all gold.

I do heard the console version have this upgrade system though, so, good for them i guess.

Also, isn't it funny that the supposedly "all powerful Heinrich" the game's been building up as this hard as heck final boss with super magic powers and dangerous deadly minions just suddenly dies only after a single belt of Venom Gun magazine, not to mention his plain simply weak powers of summoning easily killed "Dark Knights", or force pull me to his blade, using only usual strafing to avoid?

He died less than 3 minutes, 3 MINUTES!
All of those frikkin's Deathshead Uber Soldat Prototypes (Especially the actual finished product.) was more challenging than him!
Epic fail for a final boss.

Post by: Trilkin on February 14, 2015, 09:23:36 AM
Oh yes...Heinrich. Another boss that can't back up his arrogant attitude.
The fight is actually near-impossible with zombie Marianna Blavatsky's annoying magic trick blacking out your vision and sending ghosts to suffocate you.
Take her out immediately though and he's toast.

Possibly very slightly justified in that he's just come back from the dead after several centuries and would naturally have no clue how to react to the radically changed methods of war.

The final boss in the next game, Wolfenstein (2009), does a much better job. Hans Grosse actually presents a tough challenge. If you haven't sufficiently upgraded your arsenal and powers, the fight is pretty brutal. Open secret, collecting all the intel and tomes gets you all the powers and upgrades. Even with all of that, he's still  a pain in the ass.

Yeah, W2009 was a bit better, i still wish it had the oldschool health system though, regen health felt like kind of cheating.

Also, is TNO good? I'm still stuck with XP since i don't have the money nor job/finished school to get that new W10 and everything.

I too think the regen is a bit of a copout.

Your Evil Twin's mod Retrostein does a fair job making the enemies more dangerous and very slightly lowering the effectiveness of your weapons. You're still a crazy walking whirlwind of death, but the enemies are actually worth worrying about. The Heavy Trooper in particular is very noticeably faster and his weak points aren't so fragile - you can't kill him with 3 sniper shots anymore.

Haven't played The New Order yet, sorry. I'm honestly not sure I can could run it with out burning out my computer. I can run Deus Ex: Human Revolution quite well, but graphics and gaming have made such leaps since then that I doubt that's a decent measuring stick anymore.

From what I've seen from videos though, it's very delightfully over-the-top and bombastic. Oh, you dual-wield just about every kind of firearm, even heavy machine guns!
Deathshead's back again and still the delightfully hammy bastard we know and love.

BJ's now a brooding mess (not that he doesn't have good reason) and occasional overlays cutscenes with his jaded thoughts (though they might border on faux-philosophical rambling, depending on your taste). Oh, and the world's somehow a bigger mess than the one we left in Wolf 2009.

Seems promising to me.

Post by: zikshadow on February 16, 2015, 01:42:53 AM
Yeah, Wolfenstein IS practically World War on acid, and the screens/videos look kind of fun, ol' health's back, all weapons as usual, some stealth for the lowly equipped, DH being the usual freak bald arsehole, nice small things here and there, now i do feel kind of jealous for people who have played that, good for them.

Reminds me of when i first found out about MoH : Pacific Assault, i was anxious to play a new MoH game, and seeing a different setting other than the usual Nazis is a welcome thing, i'm sure other MoH's have tackled the Japs before, but since i'm with the PC, it only took this long to get a good Pacific Theater based WW2 FPS game to come to play.

The worst thing about it is that it took me at least 6 years from the game's release date to actually enjoy the blasted thing, only to suffer from freaking "night vision" wearing snipers shooting beyond bushes and japanese soldiers who managed to go through an entire area that are supposed to be occupied with US soldiers who can't seem to stop this one idiot with the sole purpose to stab me when i went down for more than a couple of seconds.

*sighs*

Well, since i won't be able to go to the moon today, i guess the Valley of the Jedi would suffice.

Have you tried to play Wolf3D custom maps Trilkin?
Some of those are really innovative despite using the W3D engine.

I recalled the most playing Wolfenstein/SoD Reloaded, Absence,  and Totenkopf, really fun when i still want more of W3D, but no more official stuff to play.
Title: Re: Post what you're currently playing! [Screenshots] [56k is a JPEG saved in paint]
Post by: Trilkin on February 20, 2015, 05:44:24 PM
Oh yes, indeed. I played a slew of mods a few years ago. Top quality stuff, several of them easily surpassing the original games in some ways.

I played most of Wolf Skevos-Jones' works - Castle Totenkopf (original), Project: Eisenritter, Operation: Heimzahlung, and Coming of the Storm.
Totenkopf was my first real venture into custom Wolf adventures and is one of my favorite along with Eisenritter.

I also played the very awesome add-ons by MCS Amsterdam and AReyeP - Spear Resurrection and End of Destiny.

Haven't been able to get through the new Special SDL Edition of Totenkopf yet, though. It's rather tricky.

Majik Monkee's stuff is pretty damn good too - Halls of Stonehenge, Operation: Letzterschutz, and the first two Mutant Strikes.

I'm currently revisiting some of those good old memories.

Spear Resurrection is just as good as I remember. Pretty sadistic difficulty at times, but exceptional work, nonetheless.

(http://i.imgur.com/ANvYlN0.png)
The SS boys are back in black. I like getting up close and personal. Using the knife is actually rewarded in Spear: Resurrection and Spear: End of Destiny. Sneaking and stabbing won't alert other, unaware enemies like in the original games, so a new stealthy element is adding to the game. Since being responsible with ammo is more important than ever and there are so many enemies that they practically bleed out of the walls, the knife is now an indispensable tool for ammo conservation.

(http://i.imgur.com/Xs7O7Fs.png)
Oh, boy. These guys are annoying. These clones are quiet and sly. The pistoleers are almost as annoying as Schabb's mutant goons, but relatively straightforward to deal with...then there are these assholes.
The pistoleer's irritating cousins are suicidal schmucks with bombs strapped to their waist and blow themselves up when they close in. They are entirely silent unless they arm their det-packs. You can still weave away when they arm up, but they love tight spaces, so when you hear the arming click, it's usually too late. Luckily they die to bullets quite easily.

BJ's redecorating...wall to wall carpeting with dead bodies. Like I said, lots of enemies in this mod.

(http://i.imgur.com/FniybHP.png)
"Hiroshima" Hyoto, the second boss. He's actually pretty easy despite how threatening he looks with that machine gun and rocket pistol of his.

(http://i.imgur.com/XLXXkoJ.png)
Oh crap, a Soulsphere! Gimmegimmegimmegimme!  Well actually it isn't so great. It'll instantly boost your health to 125% and that's about it. Oh hey, if you somehow manage to keep your health at 125% (good luck!) and pick up another Soulsphere (or Artifact of Life as the mod's manual calls it), you'll get an additional boost of 25% for each sphere up to a max of 200%. They're still useful in a pinch, though.

Had to smack down three of these jerkwad Superclones. Luckily, the developers rather questionably (or mercifully) put two Invulnerability spheres in their chamber.

Playing Mysteries of the Sith right after Dark Forces II.

(http://i1356.photobucket.com/albums/q727/ZikShadow/SHOT0000_zpsa348dc0c.jpg)

While having friendly troops is kinda nice, they often than not almost always accidentally shoots at me when i'm busy hacking the storm troopers, well done Rebel Alliance, your accuracy is almost as bad as the stormtroopers.

(http://i1356.photobucket.com/albums/q727/ZikShadow/SHOT0001_zps3c263f21.jpg)

This puzzle took me literally months before i actually got it, you have to shoot a button on the far side of this canyon to enter the Imperial base, how in the actual hell am i going to actually know that!? I found out about that by randomly shooting rail detonators at constantly respawning storm troopers that came from the elevator! Goddamn it LucasArts!

(http://i1356.photobucket.com/albums/q727/ZikShadow/SHOT0002_zps1dd1e9fa.jpg)

Decided to test the Carbon gun, was not at all impressed, too slow, too useless, have to break the enemy otherwise they go free, absolutely useless in SP, i guess you can find more use in MP, since the enemies are players who have more health than the enemies on SP and freezing them would allow the user to switch to the lightsaber/other weapon and destroy them while they can only watch in horror.

(http://i1356.photobucket.com/albums/q727/ZikShadow/SHOT0003_zpsdfed41fc.jpg)

Interesting that the character switches after the 4th mission, for this mission to the last, i play as Mara Jade, Kyle Katarn's student, too bad there's not really too much difference than playing as Kyle, besides losing all force powers, which is a bummer.

Interesting note is that while you can use a disguise in this map, it will not work against other enemies, so much for going "Hitman : Jedi Assassin".

(http://i1356.photobucket.com/albums/q727/ZikShadow/SHOT0004_zps5fc377ce.jpg)

Not really too much interesting stuff until i reach the Sith temple at Dromund Kaas, the only weapon i can use is the lighsaber/force powers, and i faced the worst enemies of the game, the white lion bastard, which is basically the sawcrazy from Cry of Fear.

Final battle was interesting though, wasted almost hours of fighting (Seriously.) before i finally know how to defeat the final boss, way to go light side, Jade.



I have played the other parts of the series not too long ago though, and i don't have anything else interesting enough for me to play, so i guess i'll go return to mod some more.

I love the Dark Forces series. Dark Forces I and Jedi Outcast are my favorites, but Jedi Knight and Mysteries are very close runners up.

I thought Dromund Kaas was a pretty cool stage. I kinda like the Vornskyrs (the white wolf things). I hate that they can kill you so easily, but on the other hand, when you manage to kill them it feels so satisfying.

I hate the diagnogas though. The Sith mummies are annoying as well.

Good games, good games, so many good memories.
Title: Re: Post what you're currently playing! [Screenshots] [56k is a JPEG saved in paint]
Post by: zikshadow on February 22, 2015, 12:27:00 AM
Yeah, i agree.

One of the most unnerving moments in DF1 has got to be the sewer level, where you had to hunt down Moff Rebus.
Being alone in the dark sewers with freakin' dianogas was awful, i hated it.

The only gripe i had about the game is the simple fact that there's no save point anywhere, i really hated it if when i was this close to finish a level, but i had to do something first like go to school or anything.

Jedi Outcast was really good, with all that thing with Desann and his force Reborns, i was a bit confused about the lightsaber Kyle got in Yavin, since i'm pretty sure that the lightsaber he left from MotS was still Yun's yellow lightsaber, but after a few wiki reading, it all made sense.


Jedi Academy was great, but not as high as the others.

One thing that really peeved my consistent self is the simple fact that the ending, unlike Dark Forces II, straight up gives you a choice to pick light side/dark side ending, it didn't even matter where you put your force stars into/your actions in the main game like DF2, it's the same bloody thing.

Kyle and Luke can cry all day about me being dark and evil when i pick too much dark side powers, but it's all back to light side Jedi boyscout again when i refuse to whack Rosh.


In the end, DF saga, best Star Wars game series ever in my opinion, Battlefront can go fly into the bridge of a Star Destroyer for all i care.

Well, I finished Spear: Resurrection. Great ending...but it's not over yet. The Spear story is completed in End of Destiny, which I plan to play next.

(http://i.imgur.com/rETZYhu.png)
Killed Baron Von Schmitt, the penultimate boss. He's a major pain in the ass. He not only takes an absurd amount of punishment, he wields two heavy machineguns and a pair of shoulder-mounted rocket/flamethrower things.

Shot taken near Hitler's tomb, just before I snatch the Spear. A bunch of commemorative statues to the slain bosses of the previous games.
Ho-hum, all in all they're a bit creepy but harmless.

(http://i.imgur.com/aERw1Wu.png)
LOL, just kidding.

After running from the ghosts, I ended up in a bizarre spirit world or perhaps the afterlife.
(http://i.imgur.com/2b7ncuR.png)
Apparently the Hereafter has taken to using the same color palette that current-gen shooters have... very, very drab and very, very boring -- erm, oops, I mean realistic, yes heheh, that's what I meant.
Oh, hey look it's our buddy the Angel of Death. Sadly, he's only half the otherworldy abomination he used to be. Well, hang in there, pal. Something good is sure to float your way.

(http://i.imgur.com/ti9kTAh.png)
And hey, it's the final boss, Adolf's specter. He's actually rather simple to beat, you just have to keep dodging his insanely dangerous energy/ectoplasm projectiles, which can put your lights out in one or two hits. But get the pattern down and it's pretty manageable. The REAL danger in fighting him is the specter of the Angel of Death and the ghosts of Hans, Gretel, Trans, Fettgesicht, Schabbs, and Wilhelm who will follow you around relentlessly and they will cause crippling amounts of damage if they touch you. And unlike Hitler, you can't hurt the other ghosts in any way. So you have to avoid them as well as the Fuhrer's blasts, but it's doable. I finished on the highest difficulty.

On to End of Destiny...

Post by: Trilkin on February 28, 2015, 09:08:28 PM
Alrighty, then. End of Destiny.

After retaking the Spear in the previous mod, BJ threw the Spear into the ocean. But the Baron was savvy enough to plan for his death and had placed a tracking device in the Spear's shaft. After discovering the wrench in their plans, the Nazi remnant, led by Heinrich Haufmann, retrieve the spear with divers and restart their operations yet again, this time at a country mansion in another part of Spain. This is it, the final chapter in the Spear's story.

In addition to exquisitely detailed maps and new enemies, there are even more new features and tools.
Besides the knife, pistol, SMG, MCS Mk3, and MCS Mk4, there are new further additions to your arsenal.
There's a missile launcher. Blows turrets and enemies to minced ribbons, but the splash damage makes using it tricky.
There's also a stealth rifle, kills tough enemies like clones and SS instantly and efficiently from long range but the ammo's extremely limited. Basically the Snooper from RTCW.


(http://i.imgur.com/VbECC58.png)
That squarish blue thing is actually what's left of a new enemy - a Rocket Turret. They have a delayed response, but they are very dangerous when they catch sight of you and open fire.

Hello again, my friends. Still pushing through End of Destiny. I'm very bowled over by the design and trick the designer's managed to pull off. I neglected to mention a few features before, so I will try to fill them in.

Besides weather, the game now sports parallax skyboxes..kind of. There's a artifact called Fury that massively amplifies your damage...but only your melee damage. Cruel tradeoff here - you can kill most anything in a single stab, but you have to get up close and personal. That said, it is very beneficial in the right situation.

Like here in Level 15 - The Underworld, where I was able to kill no less than 4 minibosses in less than a minute.

(http://i.imgur.com/60UHW0t.png)

These minibosses are also new enemies.

The blue scrapheaps are Cybertroopers, mechanical giant soldiers that each carry twin chainguns.
The two shredded piles of brown crap are Ultraclones, similar to the Superclones mentioned earlier, but they are different in that the have a chance of coming back to life after a short period.

Post by: Trilkin on March 01, 2015, 07:58:25 PM
Okay, finished. Towards the end, the game really starts throwing a lot of stuff at you. At the very end, you face an ensemble of bosses.

(http://i.imgur.com/wnBIdGS.png)
Otto, Heinrich Haufmann's chief enforcer. You face him in a dark and creepy dungeon full of mangled corpses. Luckily, he isn't very tough.

(http://i.imgur.com/5Fb3sTi.png)
Heinrich Haufmann, the penultimate boss, Baron Von Schmitt's disciple and the man who stole Spear again and kicked off this whole mess. He isn't the worst either, but that shouldn't lull you into a false sense of security.

Once you pick up the spear, you are transported to a scary fiery dimension, presumably Hell. The Baron swore he'd see BJ in Hell and he certainly tries to back up his boasts. Hellish specters of him and the Grau Adler from Spear Resurrection are there to try and keep you in Hell, but they're no match, because now you wield the holy power of the Spear itself.

Then you meet the REAL final boss...

(http://i.imgur.com/r7VT0qr.png) (http://imgur.com/r7VT0qr)
This guy...Death Incarnate.

He's pretty tough and his attacks really hurt. But he can be overcome.

With the Spear in hand again, BJ realizes that the Spear must never be allowed to fall into the wrong hands again and destroys it.

...
A very satisfying conclusion to a great pair of mods.

Next up, Castle Totenkopf.

Finished playing Dying Light, truly one of the best zombie games I've ever played (especially playing Co-op with friends), The only major letdown was the final battle, the last fight was nothing but a bunch of retarded quick time events.

I can't wait for it to get official modding support, I'd love to see a mod that makes the final battle a proper battle.

I've also been playing Dirty Bomb, a new FPS from Enemy Territory creator Splash Damage.

Also R.I.P Maxis, your were a true inspiration/pioneer to the gaming industry.

I'm going to play both editions of Wolf Skevos-Jones/WSJ's Castle Totenkopf, the original DOS version first, then the SDL Special Edition.

I suppose I should mention that WSJ's series (in order of its timeline - Castle Totenkopf, Operation Eisenritter, Operation Heimzahlung, and Coming of the Storm) does not really act as a followup to any of the Wolf games. Rather, it takes place in its own continuity. It does feature a few familiar villains and several familiar enemies, however.

(http://i.imgur.com/akayVCi.png)
The title screen, now grittier and edgier.

(http://i.imgur.com/N6Iq0jq.png)
Snipers - a pain to deal with even in the original version.

(http://i.imgur.com/iH9NE9X.png)
The SS, with a badass new jet-black look and blood red armband. Much more true to the real SS than the original games.

(http://i.imgur.com/Van8ZEv.png)
While the regular Heer guards have their officers, the SS have their own elite field officers. They are much faster and deadlier than their subordinates.

(http://i.imgur.com/Rb3ixOu.png)
Pushing through the first boss area of the mod.
Features a new twist on an old buddy of ours...

(http://i.imgur.com/LXigS11.png)
It's Hans Grosse, now as an enhanced SS Hauptsturmfuhrer (Captain). He also has a noticable deeper voice. Guten Tag, indeed.

(http://i.imgur.com/fcgEYxF.png)
Another new enemy type, the SS Flame Trooper. They closely correspond to the Venom Flame Trooper from RTCW and the Drache Trooper from Wolf 2009. He's more like the Drache , though in that he can really put out the hurt, but can't take much damage.

I finished the original edition of Castle Totenkopf. Next is the SDL Edition.

(http://i.imgur.com/JhoeFR7.png)
A new weapon introduced by the mod, a rifle. Nothing too special. It fires slowly and is fairly unweildy. It does do quite a bit of damage and drops officers and SS with 1-2 shots.

One of the castle's science team members.

(http://i.imgur.com/nI6FvgL.png)
Dual Chaingun SS Troopers. They closely correspond with the Venom Chaingun Trooper from RTCW, but they can't take nearly as much damage.

(http://i.imgur.com/UatNPmm.png)
The mod's second boss, Dr. Schabbs. In this mod, he heads the castle's science team.

(http://i.imgur.com/CqsAeW4.png)
A new enemy, the Waffen SS Trooper. They take more hits than regular SS. They also do more damage as they carry the Stg44, which I am also wielding in the shot.

(http://i.imgur.com/gMvPWko.png)
The Waffen SS Officer. They move fast, take a lot of hits, and dish out a lot of damage.

(http://i.imgur.com/Dfbr19t.png)
The mid-boss of the mod, Hauptsturmfuhrer (SS Captain) Narbgesicht (German for "Scar Face"). He's the guy who tortured and interrogated BJ after he was captured. BJ has come to pay him back with interest as well as take a key he holds. He has  a chaingun and rocket pistol. He's actually a bit frail on his own, but he has loads and loads of soldiers protecting him.

On the last level of the mod, BJ meets and defeats Hans Grosse again (who aparently wasn't quite dead from the earlier fight and has come for payback).

Then he meets and fights the final boss - Hans' older meaner brother who goes by the nickname "Panz."
(http://i.imgur.com/Y6sLqaV.png)
In addition to his chainguns, he has a pair of shoulder-mounted rocket launchers.

After defeating Panz, BJ escapes the castle and turns the intelligence he found over to his Allied handlers.

The intelligence is about a project called Eisenritter...

Totenkopf SDL, alright then. This one was simply amazing.

The story in the SDl Edition is very slightly different than the original DOS edition. Instead of being in an alternate continuity like the original, the story is retconned to take place just after Eisenfaust. Hans Grosse is already dead, so he doesn't appear...well, that one's a bit complicated...you'll see.
The big bullet points of the mod are still in place, you're captured trying to find out more about Project Eisenritter.

A new feature - you can take control of a mounted MG42.

(http://i.imgur.com/YRSAJMy.png)
BJ fighting the prison level's Warden. He bears a suspicious resemblance to Hans Grosse. A followup story screen calls attention to this. He may be a part of Hans' big family or a clone, it's not clear.

The leader of the mutants is...Schabbs, who is now a mutant himself.
As he lay dying, he injected himself with a new version of his chemical agent, which allowed him to cheat death. Well up until now. Dead for good this time.

(http://i.imgur.com/KsJ3PIt.png)
The SS interrogator again, this time he's called Narbengesicht (which means "scarred face"). He's a bit tougher than his original incarnation and he also taunts you a lot. He's not the worst, though.

(http://i.imgur.com/WLg5Q86.png)
The big boss from the third secret level. He's presumably called Death's Head (after the level he's in). You can't permanently kill him, but you have to incapacitate him or the exit door won't open.

(http://i.imgur.com/c7zESJP.png)
"Panz" Grosse, the final boss and the commandant of the castle.
He's really tough, but that's eased a bit by the the weapon I'm holding. It's called a Flak Gun and you get by collecting a component from each secret level. When you have then all, the beastliest weapon in the mod is yours to command.

Props all the way to WSJ for a great remake.

I'm now playing Project Eisenritter. It has a fond place in my heart as I was one of the very first Wolf mods I ever played.

It takes place just after Castle Totenkopf.
Having escaped from the castle, BJ meets his handlers from the resistance and OSA. Pooling information he has recovered with that of his allies, he learns that his next mission is to take apart a secret and lethal project being staged in the a secret base in the icy reaches of Norway.

The Project is (of course) called Eisenritter (German for "Iron Knight"). The project is led by a brilliantly gifted yet twisted scientist named Erich Fleischacker (from Fleischhacker - a real surname - which in German literally means "flesh cutter/slicer". It roughly means butcher, but in a traditional job sense). He is a mad genius, said to be centuries ahead of his time. Too bad he's working for the bad guys. He was once Dr. Schabb's chief disciple before paving his own road in twisted R&D.

Dr. Fleischacker has developed a prototype version of the Eisenritter, a giant mechanical powerhouse that uses the brain of human soldier. It possessed the raw power of mechanized warfare, yet has the intelligence and cunning of a human. Since its brain is the only organic component, the Eisenritter is all the more resilient. Once the project is perfected, Nazi Central Command plans to mass produce the things and effectively steamroller over the Allied armies.

Fleishacker's work has already been seen in limited engagements, with new breeds of mutants, super soldiers, and mechanized troopers. He has also been developing advanced weapons. His demise is the primary objective, along with the total destruction of his Eisenritter prototype.

New weapons and enemies are aplenty.

In addition to lots of new textures and sounds, it also has a good variety of music, some of which is from the cult classic Corridor 7.

(http://i.imgur.com/cWyKCBq.png)
Some of the Dr.'s new creations, a variation of his mentor's pistoleer mutants. I call them Knifers. They can only hit at point blank range, but they have a fast rate of attack, are very speedy, and travel in large packs. Luckily, they are quite frail. A stab or a single shot will do them in.

(http://i.imgur.com/DSlugHh.png)
A new feature, automated security. Dr. Fleischacker has deployed a number of automated ceiling Gatling turrets. Quite annoying, much like the ceiling guns in C&C Renegade. Not too durable, but it's tricky to take them down without suffering a lot for the effort.

(http://i.imgur.com/fJITllb.png)
The Flame Trooper, also making a return. Once you kill one, you can use their flamethrower.

(http://i.imgur.com/7WQ5c88.png)
The first boss of the mod, a Super Soldier, created using the same means used to enhanced the Grosse siblings. Even worse, he's merely one member of an entire line of cloned Super Soldiers, so he's actually a recurring miniboss.

(http://i.imgur.com/IlTzWFo.png)
The flamethrower in action. It's area of effect is actually significantly wider than its flames sprites. The flames move a bit sluggishly, but this is actually very helpful if used appropriatly. If a large group of enemies is heading you way through a narrow doorway or hallway, you can jump in and fire a chain of 5-10 flames, jump out of the way, and then repeat. Timed right, you can deal a lot of damage quickly. Being a projectile weapon and not hitscan means you don't have to maintain a constant line of sight and take unnecessary damage. The weapon's a bit tricky to use but funny. The ammo cap is very low, though - only 50 shots. Presumably to prevent abuse (being a "whore gun"/game breaker).

Bloodshed and superscience. Oh, new item by the way. That little green needle and vial is like a stimpack from Quake or Doom. These things give a tiny bit of health - 4% each. Since there are tons of enemies and hazards in this mod, these are useful if you're wanting to conserve the big medkits (and believe me, you will).

A diagram of a new nightmare of a regular enemy... see the next shot...

(http://i.imgur.com/2vhoGqI.png)
..this obnoxious douchebag, called the Kyber Soldat (Cyber Trooper) or Kyber VK. 87.
VK is not an acronym, it's the German equivalent of Mark/Mk, as in "type" or "version."
A tall, heavily-armored, fully robotic abomination, this guy is a true mass-produced misery-fest. He's silent as the Reaper (thus  no warning you're in his crosshairs), is quick on his shod-heeled feet, is highly accurate, wields a viciously powerful assault rifle (retconned in Castle Totenkopf's SDL Special edition to be an MG42!!), gets ever more common as the game goes on, and takes a frustratingly high amount of punishment (up to about 35-40 shots from the flamethrower, 3 rockets from the panzerschreck, and about 60-70 shots from the chaingun).

(http://i.imgur.com/hHexPCa.png)
Blowing away a Kyber Soldat with a new weapon, the Panzerschreck. The READ THIS! briefing calls it a Panzerfaust, but that's a (very common) mistake. The Panzerfaust was a disposable, single-use recoilless rifle. The Panzershreck was a proper man-portable rocket launcher. As this weapon can be used over an over, it's clearly a 'Schreck.

(http://i.imgur.com/bc9XpoT.png)
A diagram of a nasty-looking character, who, apart from closely resembling Submarine Willy from the terrible FormGen expansion Return to Danger, just happens to be...

(http://i.imgur.com/osYoaC4.png)
...the second boss of the mod, the Kyber Soldat Vk. 109, also called the Cyborg Prototype. He wields a rocket pistol and a chaingun and really soaks up the pain.
He's quite straightforward as a boss, a "warmup boss" you could say. Though, given how difficult this mod is, "harsh wakeup call boss" might fit the definition better. Has a couple of Uber Soldats supporting him. For some odd (and wonderful) reason, the Uber Soldat in the back glitches out sometimes and won't respond to you shooting weapons or attacking the boss. If you shoot him however, all bets are off. Humorously, there's another exploitable glitch. If he's still "asleep" after you kill the Cyborg Prototype, you can close in to point black distance and stab him to death with your knife (he'll still let loose his guns, but for some reason they won't hurt at point-blank). All of this only happens with Uber Soldats specifally set to "sleep" by the mapper, though.

Okay, finally done. Boy, that was extremely frustrating, but very fun and satisfying.
A very pulse-pounding and thrilling experience.

Next up, Operation Heimzahlung.

The mad genius himself, Dr. Erich Fleischacker. He uses powered armor like the Fuhrer. You have to fight him in two phases. The Dr. is closely based on Wilhelm Strasse a.k.a. Deathshead. He even uses Deathshead's greeting from RTCW - "Well, Agent Blazcowicz, is it?"
This setup is quite hilarious in hindsight, seeing as how Deathshead ended up actually using almost exactly this kind of armor in the New Order! I bet WSJ had quite a laugh over that.

(http://i.imgur.com/89gOk7u.png)
The Doc is no slouch and will continue to fight you on foot when his armour is destroyed. He's arguably more dangerous on foot as he's not only faster, but wields a Blitzgewehr, which can rip you apart in seconds.

(http://i.imgur.com/8yxFnUe.png)
Erich Fleischacker, finally brought down. When he is defeated, he uses another one of Deathshead's trademark lines from RTCW - "What?! NO! That is impossible!"

(http://i.imgur.com/R4ZZHLJ.png)
The final boss, the Eisenritter. An insanely dangerous opponent, he has three distinct attacks and has a chance of combining them. He has a pair of shoulder-mounted rocket launchers, dual chainguns, and a Blitzgewehr.

Having done all he set out to do, BJ makes a triumphant escape.

Umm, Trilkin, both of your posts have like a duplicated thing going on.

Is it intentional?

1st one is with the explanation of the KyberSoldat, half of the entire thing is duplicated.

2nd one is with the Blitzgewehr picture, they're the same.

Okay, then, playing Operation Heimzahlung (German for "retaliation" or "payback").

The story here is not nearly as complicated as the previous mods and is, in a manner of speaking, a return to basics gameplay-wise. The enemies are all regular soldiers and relatively mundane threats, kind of. None of the enemies are supernatural or paranormal in any way. Thus, I'm not entirely sure if the mod is actually connected to Totenkopf or Eisenritter - the READ THIS! states that BJ has fought many secret Nazi plots and schemes, leaving it ambiguous. I usually assume it does, though.

The story is thus...

The OSA has discovered evidence of a secret plan called Heimzahlung. Hitler has dispatched a fanatical general, Field Marshal Johann Schwartzensturm, to coordinate and lead a shock warfare campaign to break the Allies' increasing grip on Europe and turn the tide.

The OSA and Allies want BJ to seize the battle plans so the operation can be defeated, but the Field Marshal protects them with his life. He has serious firepower and tons of soldiers protecting him.

BJ has his work cut out for him.

The mod contains many new assets like weapons and enemies a great deal of which are inspired by RTCW. Several music tracks are based on RTCW's soundtrack.
The READ THIS! briefing has Jack and the Director from RTCW make cameo appearances.

A new feature and danger - alarms. They do exact;y what you'd expect. If an un-supressed weapon goes off (yours or an enemy's, it doesn't matter), droves of troops come spilling in on you. They can be overcome most of the time, but it's easier to take things slow and carefully, while sticking to your knife and suppressed weapons.

(http://i.imgur.com/trb66Lf.png)
A new weapon in action taking down a Heer officer. It's the Sten. Just like the RTCW Sten, it's accurate, very powerful, silent and does everything the MP40 does, but better. Better yet, it has no overheating factor, so it has no drawbacks and completely replaces the MP40.

(http://i.imgur.com/JX1RFTF.png)
The first boss of the mod, an SS Scharfuhrer (Sergeant) named Gunther. A pretty standard boss and a "starter" one to be sure, but he's still no slouch as he wields dual MP40s.

A Venom Minigunner. He's holding the elevator for me. How thoughtful of him.

Level 15 pulls a nasty trick to enforce a stealth approach. If an un-surpressed weapon goes off, an alarm sounds. Then about a dozen security doors slide open and vomit out...oh, I'd say and least 100-150 troops in all. They can't be hurt in any way, so you absolutely must use stealth weapons.

(http://i.imgur.com/kcz6bNk.png)
Gertrude Grosse, the mod's penultimate boss. An older sister of the Grosse family, she wields dual chainguns and a pair of shoulder mounted rocket launchers.

(http://i.imgur.com/B7uvRmT.png)
Field Marshal Johann Schwartzensturm, leader of the operation. Attacks from a tank initially, then continues fighting on foot with chainguns.

After defeating the Marshal and his bodyguards, BJ use's the Marshal's key to unlock the room containing the battle plans. With the plans in hand, BJ escapes and meets his handlers. With the plans in custody, the Allies are able to defeat the Marshal's strike forces and keep their hold on Europe.

Just finished Coming of the Storm.

The story is as follows.

In a castle centuries ago, the German countryside was terrorized by a fanatical Doomsday cult called the Faceless Brotherhood. Led by their bloodthirsty prelate, known only by his title of Archpriest, the order schemed to unleash otherworldly forces on the world in what they called Second Ragnarok. Their plans neared fruition as a final ceremony took place. Led by the Archpriest, the order began to open a portal. Just before the ritual was complete, they were interrupted. The county's king, fed up with the order's crimes, had track them to their hideout and dispatched knights to storm the castle. The Archpriest was killed quickly and the ritually stopped, by the castle began to shake and collapse. The knights fled, but the order was buried beneath the ruins.

Centuries later, a Nazi task force has shacked up in a forgotten old castle. Catching wind of the mystical powers of the extinct order, the force- assisted by a group of occultists - has begun planning to subvert the order's dark rituals to turn the tide of the war in their favor.

The OSA has hear rumors of the rituals and are skeptical to say the least. But BJ, having had numerous scrapes with the supernatural, jumps at the call.

Thiss mod was the last production by WSJ...until he rebooted Totenkopf, that is. Will we see a new mod from him in the future? Only time will tell.

Rockets (yours and the enemy's) in this mod have a significant AOE, making him quite a respectabe threat. He's also backed up by a large amount of troops, as seen here.

The TotenMutant, the third boss. Has two forms. He initially wears a powered armor suit with two rocket launchers and dual chainguns.
When his armor is criplled, he fights you with dual chainguns and a chest-mounted flamethrower.
As can also be seen, the Cyber Trooper from Eisenritter makes a return appearance.

(http://i.imgur.com/q7dRYd8.png)(http://i.imgur.com/Uxx9JQe.png)
The ultimate boss of the mod, the Shadow Demon. The gatekeeper of the Ragnarok otherworld, he must be defeated to close all of the portals.
It's pretty miserable fighting him. First off, he cloaks. He cannot be seen (or even damaged, if my suspicions are right) unless he attacks first. He fires chains of fast moving lightning spells, horrendously painful and very difficult to dodge. An additional problem is that there are scads of ghosts that seriusly mess you up if you touch them and they cannot be harmed in any way.
Luckily the Shadow Demon is not the most durable boss. His attacks and said gimmicks more than pick up the slack, though.

With the guardian defeated and the portals close, BJ flees the castle. The castle itself is destroyed when the earth shakes and opens up, swallowing the ruins whole.

I just finished the PC port of Deus Ex: The Fall.

I really liked it!

The game is NOT as bad as complainers make it out to be. It's far from perfect and it suffers from several questionable decisions, make no mistake, but once I got used to the setup it was great fun.

Since I just read the tie-in novel Icarus Effect, the experience was even better (the game IS a sequel to the novel after all).

Anyway, I certainly don't feel like I wasted my time.

I finished Double Agent and loved it for the most part. I didn't find too much about the presentation or the game to be too bad. The port itself, however, was quite lazily done - almost to the point of incompetence at times.

Nothing so dramatic or game-breaking buuuuuut...

-The way the game is optimized for Steam is unacceptable graphically. Blurry textures, bad shadows, crappy effects, you name it. Fortunately, it's easily fixed if you take the time to edit the appropriate .ini files. Not hard at all, but tedious and time consuming. Time you'd rather spend getting into the game.
-Before you play the Steam version, you have to apply the two UbiSoft patches manually. Yes, that's right. If you don't do this, you don't get access to the gadgets you're awarded for completing challenges and conditions. I had to play through 2/3 of the game before I figured out why my perks weren't showing up. Mercifully, the patches didn't nuke my savegames and was able to jump right back into the action, new gadgets and all.
-Quicksaves are horrendously buggy. Take my word for it, hard-save often or you'll bitterly regret it. It's downright dangerous to depend on quicksaves. If your game crashes (it did for me and a lot - not as often as you might expect, but it did get really old after a while), there's a good chance your quicksaves will. It's painful to have to replay huge tracts of levels because of a broken save. Luckily, I'm paranoid and hard-saved to an excessive extent, so this only happened once or twice.

That said, I liked the game a lot. It was noticeably harder than previous titles and I liked the extra challenge, even though the designers went overboard with time limits (seriously, a time limit EVERY time you go to JBA headquarters? It comes off to me as more of an excuse to needlessly pressure the player than anything else). The extra gadgets were nice too. Using the Ultrasonic Emitter pistol is one of my favorites - it's great fun to mess around with a guard by making him chase noises around a room. The charge upgrades to the Five-Seven's OCP is very nice too, especially since shooting lights counts against you in DA.

I've been playing Bioshock Infinite, some dinosaur games, and this obscure FPS I discovered on the Internet called PRISM: Guard Shield, believe it or not this game was sponsored by the National Guard.

I'll post some screenshots of it when I get around to it.

Been going back and forth playing these games, not gonna put any screens unfortunately since they would probably clutter the entire thread and let's be honest, no one likes scrolling a humongous post.

Just gonna list them here.

- Deus Ex. (I wonder if saying that truly makes someone out there reinstall the game.)

- Sven Coop (Solo since my internet suck arse, really hate the maps where you need 2 guys to
press buttons, feels like a cheap attempt at a "co-op requirement", thank bloody god for cl_noclip.)

- System Shock 2 Custom Mod : Infinite (Not bad, just dislike the fact that energy dispensers run out, while those kamikaze bomberbot does not.)

- Hidden and Dangerous Deluxe (Screw. All. The. Stealth. Based. Levels. ESPECIALLY GREECE. HAD NO ONE LEARNED OF SILENCED GUNS BEFORE?)

- STALKER CoP with Misery, and STALKER CS with Arsenal Overhaul (Died A BLOODY LOT in Misery, yet being godlike in CS:AO, switching between them prevents stress and frustration.)

- Rayman 1995 (An enemy appearing out of nowhere after you going through a tedious long platforming section, making you jump back in invincibility frame falling to your doom is most "lovely".)

- Prince of Persia 2 : The Shadow and the Flame (DOS, not the craptacular IOS version.) (Besides triggering my phobia at a certain part of the game, causing me to skip level the parts, the game's all right, love the combat, weird as what-the-heck Jaffar fight, hate the stiffer-than-PoP1 platforming, had to read the manual to have an idea what the heck to do and all that, not as bad as Rayman 1.)

- Half-Life mods (SiC, SiC2, OpBT, NOffice, Cthulhu, Prison) (Mostly to HD-fy them, which means repeating them over and over until everything works perfect and not crashing or looking like a horrible mess.)



As you can probably guess, putting screens of them would be unpleasant for the travelers of the thread.

Same here, had to use the HD mod since i got so used to the original that i need some variety to break it up.

Finished Lord Bafford's in Expert.

Can't wait to get to my favorite level, Thieves Guild.  :joebiden:


Still haven't played T4 yet though, first reason is because my PC is weak, second is that i heard/seen some gameplay changes that might settle off the original fans.

Finishing up the Thief trilogy yet again.
I'm about 2/3 through Deadly Shadows but I'm currently trying to negotiate (and overlook) what I think is the worst aspect of the game. No, not small levels. No, not loading zones.

I'm talking about the Keeper Enforcers. The concept behind them is brilliant and they look and sound amazing, but the execution of that concept...er....

Need I mention these guys are supposedly to be STEALTHY killers. I suppose the team couldn't make that detail work because of technical limitations. Maybe? Or ran out of time? Or something?

In any case, Orland ordering the Enforcers to "erase the problem" shouldn't equal slaughtering everything in sight.

*Sigh* By the Builder, these guys are foolish.

Playing They Hunger thanks to the recent RTSL reminder.

Can't think of a good replacement for the 9mmAR.
It's either Red's THG3/Tommy/M16.
Ended up using the former due to screw army weapon logic.

I can't even think when did TH happen.
It has oldies style locations, NPCs, and zombie mad scientists tropes while having modern weapons like berettas, G3s, and G36s.

I think They Hunger takes place in the 50's, 60's, or 70's.

BTW are you going to release those Models you've made for They Hunger?

Nah, all i did was just replace a couple of weapons in R1chard's TH pack.
Most of those are way too easy to find and replace.

Also, i didn't made those models, pretty much almost all the projects i've been working on and manage to release just involves rigging other models, altering maps, editing sounds, modifying sprites, and possibly adding textures.

The only projects where i actually create the maps are just Cry of Fear custom maps floating around ModDB, not pretty good too, considering the feedback i got.

Recently upgraded from my shitty old pc, and decided to give Bioshock Infinite a whirl. Yeah it looks pretty and all that, but it feels and plays like any other generic shooter. The NPCs scattered across the map only have one scripted line, and I keep finding myself sidetracked looking out for tapes and pickups.

Played and finished System Shock again, this time with the Enhanced Edition. It was awesome, naturally. I always wanted to see SS1 get a re-release, so news of the Enhanced Edition made me happy.

Now playing System Shock 2 once more. It's an amazing game, even as old as it is.
Ah, but you've heard me say that before.
Anyway, I'm playing with the SS2 Community Patch (SCP). It's a fairly extensive mod that combines many gameplay fixes with the NewDark engine enhancements as well as a ton of fixes and features.

I don't agree at all, but there are no sacred cows for me. I respect your opinion. The game isn't for everyone.

On that note, I cannot deny that there are several things that rub me the wrong way about SS2.

The weapon degradation is a great example. I had almost forgotten how fast the guns break. They always seem to go pear-shaped at the worst possible time. It should really say something that half of SS2 players probably use mods to excise that cancerous gameplay element. I never do, though, since I like to be challenged.

It's still very dumb, though. That there's no explanation for it whatsoever. No wonder the good guys got slaughtered. There was originally supposed to be a log explaining why, admittedly in a bit of a hand wave. Never put in though, probably because "fridge logic" would set in and make you wonder why the ships you fight through aren't rapidly degrading.

The ending still confuses me. I've heard the theories that the vagaries of FTL gave SHODAN almost godlike powers and allowed her to "possess" Rebecca Siddons or that perhaps she transmitted herself into Rebecca's cybernetic implants. Interesting explanations and decent enough, but it's bad design to make gamers have to figure out the ending.

Recently, Ken Levine stated that there was apparently disastrous miscommunication on the ending.

Me neither. The game went on for way too damn long, and the over-hyped ending didn't deliver at all. It was too easy as well. I never really ran into trouble, and only used vigors where it was required for the objective, or in mini-boss fights where vigors would do much more damage. The upgraded smg is accurate and easily cuts through everything they'll throw at you. Repercussions of Evil summarizes the story pretty well:

Quote
“This is Joson” the radio crackered. “You must fight the demons!”
So John gotted his palsma rifle and blew up the wall.
“HE GOING TO KILL US” said the demons
“I will shoot at him” said the cyberdemon and he fired the rocket missiles. John plasmaed at him and tried to blew him up. But then the ceiling fell and they were trapped and not able to kill.
“No! I must kill the demons” he shouted
The radio said “No, John. You are the demons”
And then John was a zombie.

It's abit insulting that they called Bioshock a "Spiritual Successor" even though some of the Original System Shock Developers Worked on it and it has some Vaguely Similar Gameplay and Story Elements.

Isn't that what defines a spiritual successor?

Post by: zikshadow on December 26, 2015, 04:24:56 AM
Somehow finished the insanity that is Oblivion Lost 3.1 mod for SoC, i think i broke down in tears a couple of times from the frustration.
Simply put, this is the kind of mod i'll never replay ever again, ever!

Just gonna put cons list here because the hatred i felt from this mod practically swallowed all of the good of this mod like a consuming shadow.

- Grammar in this mod is bad.

- The weapons of this mod are mostly hit-scan.

- The AI doesn't respond well at long range.

- Too much military (literally all maps have atleast a dozen military personnel), both Bandit and Duty is reduced, Freedom even further (almost to a non-existant point).
This also means 5.45 weapons with GLs practically rule the Zone due to the obscene amount of ammo, survival my arse.

- Blowout safe areas are not marked, sometimes open areas provide cover, sometimes closed areas still killed me.

- Some weapons don't match real-life counterparts.
Example : The VSS has almost hit-scan like accuracy while having an astounding 30 rounded mag.

- Traders sell ammo for weapons that they don't sell, how much sense does that make?
I would have liked it if the trader sell more unique but expensive things.
Or at the very least have them sell the lesser versions of them.

- Spawning is bullshit.
At least 5 minutes after i killed everyone, they respawned, there are multiple dozens of dead military bodies lying in front of the Bar as i'm typing this.

- Enemies spawn in front of me, point blank range right after i loaded a new map, Pripyat to Radar is most guilty of this problem, multiple maps suffer from this problem too, i had to be alert while expecting immediate gunfight loading a new map.

- Item description isn't gameplay specific, they were just copy pasted online from the looks of it, Saiga claims that it can use the PSO, that is false.

- Sleeping in the open is not dangerous at all, i slept in front of the NPP and was not attacked, i even managed to recover most of my lost health sleeping mid combat.

- First time i played i didn't know that the constant blur was because of sleepiness, basically was going from place to place with a goddamn blur on my face till i searched online.

The mod never indicated sleepiness was a thing. No ZZZ icons, no notes ala' LA, nothing.

- I understand that Oblivion Lost was supposed to "emulate" the beta version of SoC, but they didn't even bother changing vanilla SoC models, even "SoC Beta-like" mods like LA knows to implement CS/CoP's model system for people to HD mod it while changing the models/animations of vanilla stuff.

- Controller. I've learned a new level of hell from the mod's overuse of them.

The controller sound after death bug is not fixed, of course, this mod had to made it worse by literally throwing dozens of them in one map.
I was killed multiple times because of controllers i can't even see!
That aura killing thing was already annoying and they had to amplify it a bunch.

- NPP was arbitrary difficulty, especially if one would count in the respawns.
An entire armada of burers, chimeras, and bloodsuckers, respawning, think about that for a second.
Rows of them just standing in front of NPP.
Rows.

- Of course, "LAB X26" is the WORST of all.
Literally all of the most dangerous mutants including multiple fire poltergeists packed in a small map.

Stressful, frustrating, it wasn't even tense due to multiple enemy's OP ability/gangbang ability to destroy my health in mere seconds.

I was yelling obscenities the whole time i was down there.

I ended up modding the main menu to be silly just because that's going to be the thing i see the most after dying from one arbitrary bullshit to another (attachment).

- The new storyline.

Honestly, the developers can just sod the fuck off.

The hints were piss poor.
They could have described the building it was kept in. AT THE VERY LEAST!
It took me countless boring & tedious hours finding them, and was not even glad when i did.

The final boss fight wasn't even worth it, he's just another military personnel but surrounded by his controller friends, easily fooled by running straight for the sand bags and sniping him from there.

AS IF I WASN'T BLOODY SICK OF THE MILITARY AND THE CONTROLLERS ALREADY.

And then the ending was sudden, abrupt, and didn't feel satisfying in any way, it was just talk to this guy, talk to another, that's it.
No conclusion, no nothing.

Basically the mod's way of saying "Fuck you" after going through hell and back.

- NPCs from other games cameos (featuring some from CoP, Metro, and other things i don't know about), they are worthless to be honest, they just stand and talk, nothing else. Not even custom NPC models, just existing ones. They could be just a randomly named NPC and i couldn't care.

- Finally, sell a weapon to Priboi and marvel as it floats around him, beautiful.

And that was it.
Oblivion Lost.

A mod that should have just stayed lost in oblivion.

Calm down, lad.

Just because a game is a historic foundation doesn't mean that it doesn't have flaws.
Besides, these are all opinions, people's tastes are different from each other, so of course there is possibility of someone loving and hating a game like this.

Trust me, Spork. I've beaten that steaming pile of shit of a game and it doesn't get any better, so you've made the right decision stopping.
Oh will you just Shut the Hell Up, Stop giving Shit to a Video Game Classic.
Be Glad System Shock 2 exists, because if it didn't we would have had no Bioshock, Dishonored, & Deus Ex...

Show some Respect for once.



Calm down, lad.

Just because a game is a historic foundation doesn't mean that it doesn't have flaws.
Besides, these are all opinions, people's tastes are different from each other, so of course there is possibility of someone loving and hating a game like this.

Meting out some carnage with mah boomstick in the level "Command Post" in mission 4. Probably one of my very favorite missions of all. It's very well designed, very atmospheric, the fights are fun and well paced. The enemies are mostly higher ranking enemies like elite sentries, Heer and SS officers, and tank commanders. I often trying to sneak around with the Hi Standard as long as possible, just for fun.  Also, blowing up two King Tigers is like icing on a cake.

Oh yeah, MoHAA, haven't played that in a while.
Funny because i never removed it off my computer for some reason.

The "stealth" disguise missions are my favorite, all the way to the expansion packs.
Always liked some missions with variety like that, really breaks it after getting shot a lot by these guys.

Unfortunate that the expansion packs REALLY limits you of ammunition and weapon choice, particularly since some enemy dropped weapons are not pickable for some reason.
Really brings painful memories during the Italy missions of Breakthrough when you're stuck with nothing.
No, i wasn't wasting all of my bullets on rocks, they really did ran out.
I had to save the soldier from the executioner by using my last Beretta magazine on the officer and whip-flinch the others, barely made it.

MoH's night levels are always atmospheric, i liked most of them.
Also, nice cameo from Underground, sad that it was for only like, a line or two.

Spearhead's Bastogne can sod off.
The turret section was bloody awful, whoever designed that probably smoked something and forgot to set the difficulty settings to "fair" instead of "a lunatic's description of fair".
The "protect the line" mission was a bit piss on my socks, though the level after that was okay.

The Berlin levels are fun.
Tank part is a lil' odd, i don't remember health kits for tanks being a thing in MoH...

AA's Bocage missions are kind of a pain, fogs and shrubs hide enemies while they clearly open fire at you with little problem.

Also, snipers, hidden in the middle of nowhere.
Don't get me started on Sniper's Last Stand or the early foggy forestry levels of Schmerzen.
Many Powells died that day.

Omaha was simply awesome, reminds me of a particular movie...
(yes i know ol' Steven wrote this)

Love the fact that if you spam the alarm button till it stops ringing automatically in "Die Sturmgewehr" after blowing the weapons cache up, the nazis that spawn would still think you're an officer and wouldn't fire, even the ones outside didn't do anything (except the mg spotlights, but they're scripted so that's that).

I remember hating the mortar section of Breakthrough the first time i played it, but getting used to it in subsequent playthroughs, it's not that bad.
Still tedious though since it's all guesswork and you're screwed if the tanks get close.

Really loved MoHAA and it's expansion packs for the most part.
Probably gonna replay them in a bit.
Just need to replace the weapon sounds so it won't be a 1:1 replay.

So i finally finished Papers, Please.


Goodness me, it's again one of those games that got my hands shaking after i was finished with it.

Who knows it could be actually be fun to be on a border checkpoint in the olden days?
Though real-life would probably be more boring (and dangerous) than this, ah well.

The rules piling up day after day can really put a bit of a stress, though thankfully the only time i got a -5 citation was at the final day, the others being fillied with last warnings.

I was conflicted between denying someone or detaining them, but i found that denying them seem to go just a tiny bit faster, so i mostly just deny /& reason stamp people if there's any discrepancy.

I was a bit curious about EZIC, but decided against following it, looking at that gestapo-looking secret service guy definitely helped.

Escaping was also a no go, i'd figured if i escape i'll probably get some bad ending immediately or something.

I did help a few people in, at the cost of me getting a citation, though it's good for the feels.

Arrested Wens, knowing the time period and location, he's getting the rifle anyways.

Never missed a single shot, thankfully.

Don't know if i'm gonna ever replay it again to see the other endings, i figured the other ending's probably have got to do with you escaping or joining EZIC, but i never figured it would go up to 20.

Finished max payne 3 recently. It felt like a drag. There's a minute of cutscenes for every minute you play. The cover system makes bullet dodging unnecessary, leading to the impression that it's just tacked on. Its only real use for me was when engaging bigger groups while being low on ammo. Max as a character is utterly depressing to "play as," and all the other characters are barely memorable. Oh that one kid got burned? Nobody cares.

Someone gifted me R6 Siege and it's actually pretty fun - multiplayer at least. I like the concept of having the different characters with their own abilites. Though nothing new, it feels refreshing compared to the CoD-style class system every game ever is using at the moment. There are always enough ways to get into a building or room, and depending on your character and play style you can methodically scout through an area, or just blow up a wall and go in guns blazing. No one ever cares about actually extracting a hostage or getting hold of the objective though, every game pretty much turns into TDM with one side camping and the other team going in.

Yes, it is. Suffers from console-itis, but the RetroStein mod (by Your Evil Twin) goes a long way to fixing a lot of the game's shortcomings.

The game was made by Raven Software, the same people who made Heretic and Hexen, so it's an in-joke/reference or shameless plug, depending on how you see it.

Got the Quake 2: Quad Damage pack from GOG a few days ago. I just got finished with vanilla Quake 2. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Over the years, I've seen a HELL OF A LOT of trash talking about the game - people accuse it of being cliched and uncreative, of being a just yet another "space marine" jaunt. I won't deny it's a bit boilerplate, but the gameplay is still pretty solid. The Makron, though...eh, he wasn't that interesting.

Haven't played D4, but from what I've seen I get the feeling that Id got a bit too enamored by Brutal Doom. As for the personality thing, maybe they took inspiration (right, we'll go with that) from Doom Guy's Mind (as seen here ...which happens to use Brutal Doom.

Hmm.

Anyhow, I just finished playing Deus Ex 1 yet again, this time with the Revision Mod. I really liked it.
Revision adds lots of spiffy new changes to the game to give this old warhorse some new flavor and vim. The map changes are very extensive, but the mod also adds a few new enemies and weapons. It also has some great new music, though not everyone will like the change, naturally. Instead of energetic, techno-ey like the original, it has a downplayed and somewhat cinematic-sounding OST. I like the music. It's an acceptable change that I feel emphasizes the game's epic story in its own way.

That said, if you really can't live with the music, you can use an option in the sound menu to switch back to the original OST.

An added bonus is that the devs integrated mod support...in a a way.
You can use the options menu to either play the game on its own (with Revision additions, 'natch), Shifter, or BioMod. I chose Shifter. It all worked well.

A new enemy can be seem next to the MJ12 Commando: the MJ12 Elite Trooper.

The Elite AR has everything you would want an AR, basically; comes with a scope, laser and a huge magazine cap of 50 by default. It also has high base accuracy and lower recoil. You can upgrade it even further with mods like a silencer range to make even deadlier. A must for Rifle Skill specialists.

The iconic moment before you go down the rabbit hole. Page taunts you about having JC's parents assassinated. He then sends up the man that did the job...and it's Walton Simons!
That actually makes perfect sense now that I think about it (EDIT: Pretty much accurate, I've found; Page's personal computer in the office overlooking the gateway to Sector 4 has an email from Page ordering Simons to terminate the parents, but leaves it ambiguous as to whether Simons sent assassins or did the job himself).

This only happens if you spare Simons at the Ocean Lab AND the bunker exterior. Otherwise, Page sends up a Man in Black and two supporting MJ12 Troopers.

And finished with DXIW. Always makes me a bit sad when I've finished the series. It feels like I've come to the end of a long journey.

Went with the ApostleCorp ending, as I always do. None of the other endings feel like they're worth it to me.

After screwing him over, Saman decided to come and kill me personally. Guy's got guts. For as much of piece of shit as he is, he's pretty badass and a huge pain to bring down. He's reacts quickly and moves quickly. His launcher also hurts a lot and he's pretty skilled with it.

He's not enough against me and my friend here. For some reason, Leo decided to come out and help. He proved to be quite the badass, too.

A few last words from JC before the endgame.

I've been hooked to Mechwarrior 4 lately, tried No Man's Sky for a couple hours then decided it's minecraft with space ships.

...tried No Man's Sky for a couple hours then decided it's minecraft with space ships.

It is as I feared. Think the hype overblew what the game designers were actually doing.

I've been enjoying Tropico 4 and 5. Bundle Stars had them on sale for less than $10 with all the DLC (each).

I dont really care about NMS, it seems to me like the devs blew their entire budget on making a procedural universe, forgetting to put in any cool objectives or goals (other than exploring and getting dosh to explore some more).

Ive tried the telltale game of thrones thing. My god is it bad; the transition from high-budget aaa tv show to low-budget indie feeling game was rough. The crowds and animations are stocky as hell, the plot seems generic with the got name slapped on, and the gameplay is painfully slow. Graphically, the pisspoor flat and boring lighting stood out the most to me. I get it, telltale games have that look, but throw in some simple fog, crank up the contrast and do some color grading. Code for these shaders are widely available by now and it would take a few hours at the most to get this SHIT sorted.

Uninstalled.  :smile:

Played and finished Clive Barker's Undying in about four or five days. Pretty decent and fun, but I also found it very hit or miss at times.

The weapons were fun and the spells were cool. The characters and enemies were...unique. The plot and story were really nifty. The pacing...well, it felt a bit uneven. The last two big fights...ehhhhhh....both rather boring. Bethany was annoying and kinda dull. The Undead King was annoying and UNBELIEVABLY, MIND-MELTING BORING. Hit weak point, hit his head with Skull Storm, continue again and again until I wanna send my face through my screen from the irritation.

All in all though, I did like the game and felt it was very much worth it.

Now I'm playing American McGee's Alice. I got these two games together in a pack when I ordered Alice.

This game's version of Wonderland is pretty twisted, but it gives the game it's own unique appeal.
Alice is a pretty adorable little badass. I really like the Cheshire Cat too, though Chesh has always been a big favorite of mine regardless of incarnation or continuity.

Clive Barker's Undying

Oooh, I've been wanting to play that too. Anyway, been going back and forth between Mechwarrior 4 and emulating Monhun Portable 3rd with PPSSPP. Arena medium using Bushwacker with 2 Clan Ultra AR is fun.

Finally got around to playing HL1 again. Never gets old.

I mixed and match a lot of stuff but it was mostly the Overhaul Pack from ModDb. Pretty good pack, but Diamond's Final pack is still my favorite.

Some interesting new skins in Overhaul, but there a few from Trusty Crowbar as well.

(http://i.imgur.com/tZuVPNp.jpg)
The Blast Pit monster, no description necessary. Boy does it ever feel good to roast this asshole. Burn, you bastard, burn.

(http://i.imgur.com/SV3BoXD.jpg)
The first encounter with the female assassins in the iconic fight in Apprehension. These models are from the OP4 pack by Trusty Crowbar. Unlike other models, these wear more than just skin tight suits; armor most notably , but also a few small techy details. On one arm is what seems to be PDA...or perhaps an Aliens-style scanner/detector? Also some wires hooking in the suit, poosibly for their googles but perhaps also for their cloaker (I played on Hard); some wires on their boots, too - perhaps to suggest that they're augmented, explaining why they can jumps so high? Just guessing

No matter how many times I replay Half-Life and its Expansions I never get bored of them, for some unexplainable reason Doom & Half-Life give me more replay value than most Post-2000's/Post-2010 Games do, I guess its because all those kick-ass Mods made for them.

Also I've been playing with and working on my own HD Pack for Half-Life, Opposing Force, and Blue Shift (like every Map Texture, Model, Sprite, and Sound has been replaced, and there are some Model Edits and Rigs I've done), but I'll probably never release it publicly mainly because I'm constantly tinkering with it, and because HD/UD Packs in this day and age are frowned upon unless it's something made by Trusty Crowbar.

And I've been playing through the First Borderlands and Fallout 3/New Vegas with the Tale of Two Wastelands Mod with extra ones ontop.

The Combat in the first Borderlands feels a lot more "punchy" compared to Borderlands 2, like it feels like all of the Weapons even the weaker ones feel powerful and do reasonable damage and all that.

Also I've been playing these.

I think you should release the pack regardless of what the common herd thinks. If YOU like the mod, that's really all that should matter.

And on a related note, while Trusty Crowbar's work is very good, I didn't find it that impressive - or, rather,  as impressive as its fans try to hype it up top be.

To be brutally honest, I don't find TC's work to be any better than similar packs, like the Diamond Final Pack.

Oh, and TC's stuff seems to include a lot unnecessary miscellaneous junk in released packs. Needless scripts, alternate models, model reference files, and even changing the spoken language of several characters. Very clearly copy-pasted from the creator's desktop.

I don't like messy releases and having to dive into a pack and double-check for hours just to make sure critical dialogue isn't being overwritten counts as a mess as far as I see it.

This gripe applies to the Overhaul pack as well. A lot of stuff that doesn't jive or isn't necessary.

I can appreciate all creative works, but I'll always have a bias against the heavy use of retail game assets. Looking a TC's stuff, there seems to be a lot of that going on. Still cool, but it takes a bit away for me.

I usually try to avoid things like that as well in my remods, though sometimes I do ended up catching the odd one, either because I couldn't find a better alternative or because I just like it (the islaves, for instance).

Thinking I should probably do something similar to TC and dissolve all the mod pages under one single "Remod" banner.
Might be more efficient too, considering everything I do just to either post WIPs (on my profile images section), release mods (having to create sections and all), or check comments (that ModDB doesn't exactly remind you of unless it's a reply to a comment).
Though I'm kinda afraid if things might get messier if EVERYTHING is packed in one place, articles, downloads, images, and all.

And in other news, just to be on-topic, been playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Chernobyl and the Ispitatel quaTrilogy again.
First one, truly masterful, no wonder this got MoTY last year. Second one is still as wacky as ever.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think it won MOTY twice.

And I don't think that would be a good Idea, because like you said it might get messier if everything is packed in one place.

Recently got a PS3 with the Last of Us. I've been wanting to play it for quite some time but never had a console until now. I was pretty stoked, trailers looked good and the reviews were favorable as well. Too bad the game is a shit sandwich. Was actually planning to write a long rant about the joke ai, how extremely linear it is, lack of exploring (there are notes hidden throughout the game but other than the main path everything is a dead end) and how bland the characters are, but i guess idc enough to do so. I'll probably finish it some day.  :sagan:

Only played the PS4 version; I think the hype does it disservice, it's not that much better than your other popcorn games. Replay value is pretty minimal.

Used my Wildstar max level boost last week. I tried it out when it was in beta, again when it became F2P, and again for this free boost. It's great on paper but I'm not feeling it.

Finished the First "half" of Final Doom, TNT Evilution, a few days ago.

I'm currently on the Plutonia Experiment.

From TNT:
MAP 31 - Pharoah. Fittingly for the title, there's mystical Kemetic/Ancient Egyptian decor with traps, tricks, lots of nasty monsters and a VERY nice variation of "Legion of the Lost" by Grave Digger as background music.

Also, a guest appearance by David Blaine as the Cybie.

From Plutonia:

The map I'm currently trying to survive...MAP 11: Hunted. Hey, guys, what's better than dealing with an Arch-Vile. Dealing with 18!
