29. Aliens TC for DOOM... Oct 15, 2014, 19:28 Ant

I would definitely like a client to organize all my GoG games in a nice STEAM-like way.

I feel like getting back into Aliens TC for Doom 2. What a killer mod that was.
Uh, I am pretty sure it was for DOOM 1 only.

6. I actually played more! Oct 5, 2014, 16:55 Ant
 
I played more before the free weekend ended with another single player level. I still got dizzy. No capture the flag (CTF) multiplayer and frak death match (DM). The super long credits feature was cool to look. It even shared the original game! OK, no more ROTT. It is not bad, but better than the original one.

Played the shareware plenty, but it was dated before release.
Same here. I didn't get the full game. How did you like that one compared to this new one? It looks like I won't be playing more of this new one today since I only have an hour left and got things to do.

I just installed this yesterday out of boredom, in part because the copy of Wolfenstein I bought for the 360 won't get here till Monday (bought it after people here raved, bought it for the 360 because it was $30 whereas the PC was $60.)

Like Ant, I did the first level. And, for the first 5 minutes, I was disoriented because it's ridiculously fast.
But I wasn't hugely into it. For some reason it has a plot. And for some reason you can only hold one super weapon. Pick up a rocket launcher? Awesome. Pick up a double barrel shotgun? You're dropping the rocket launcher for it!

Plus the combat felt really weird. I don't know what it was. Maybe it was guys felt narrow, maybe it was weapons fire in the same spot every time, but it felt weird. And, for some reason, you can use iron sights, which zoom a bit but don't increase aim and take like 3 or 4 seconds to actually look down.

I'll play a bit more, but I wasn't in love. It seems like something that, after maybe 40 minutes, you've seen enough of. It was only the first level, but on Hard my health never fell below 55%.
Did you ever play its original ROTT?

I played the first level in single player. I liked it. It was better than the DOS version I played in college.

Great, now let's get Golden Axe, Magic Sword and Gain Ground modernized and released.

Then you can add T-Mek(!) and the vector graphic Star Wars and everything old will be new again!

We already have most of the top pinball tables available ... we just need those cabinet games.

RASTAN!!!!!
Yeah! I love its theme song! Golden Axe 1's too. So many good old games.

loved the original, i think it was possibly the first game that i played on a home console after first playing it in the arcade.

gauntlet first, then golden axe are probably my fav cabinet games of the 80's
They did remake Golden Axe for PS3 or something, but it sucked? I played its arcade and IBM PC DOS ports a lot!

Was trying to ignore all the positive Wasteland 2 talk, since I really don't need any more games... Failed...

Fortunately I don't have a joystick, so it should be easier to resist Elite: Dangerous, at least for a bit longer...
Neither do I with old and free games. I barely have time to surf the web and read Blue's News daily.

Free games = awesome, and Bejeweled is ridiculously addicting.

Thank you, EA. This is much appreciated.

Ditto even though I am not a fan of Origin. EA, you still need to make your improve your game quality and support though. These free games will not make me like you more.

I added Bejeweled 3 via Origin, and I have to say, I can see why people get addicted to these little pattern games. This one in particular is extremely polished and well done. Definitely casual gaming, but still a well made program.

Clearly the Free Games portion of the EA store is mostly there to draw traffic to Origin, but they do actually give away games for free. Win/Win? Origin is about as intrusive as Steam, honestly.
Yep, I finally installed Origin on my very old production Windows XP Pro SP3 machine.

I believe I had LR on an Atari XE. Was it one of the first games with a built in level editor?
Yeah, original LR game had an editor. IIRC, you press ctrl E during the demo screens.

I just found this out this mawning on a Lode Runner Y! mailing list since I don't come to BN anymore due to BUSY life. I was a huge LR fan when I was a callow ant. I drew pictures, passed Championship LR and got a paper certificate, made my own levels, etc. on my Apple //c. I never liked the newer LR games though. Apple 2 and Commodore/C 64 were the best LR to me.

Redditors, I have a subReddit for LR games: https://www.reddit.com/r/loderunner/
