Hats off to the Red Sox nation. My father, a member for 54 years, was deliriously happy last night when Renteria grounded out to Foulke. Good job, fellas.

As an Oakland Athletics fan, I can speak from experience on the joy of a sweep in the World Series. Particularly satisfying indeed that it came against the San Francisco Giants. We miss you, Tony LaRussa.

Hey, Yankee fan. . . how about them apples?

BTW, I thought this thread was about baseball. What was up with over ninety posts about politics, threats on online ass kickings and the boiling and drinking of goat pee? Blue, you got a thought on this?

So let me get this straight. . . what you're all saying essentially is that the special edition VHS copies I bought five years ago for twenty bucks at Dimple Records (and barely ever watch so the quality is still excellent) are actually better than the sparkling new DVD's costing sevety bucks that people have been waiting on pins and needles for?

HA HA HA HA!

Probably a few months since I posted on this forum, but I wanted to make a quick note on this subject. The song "A Boy Named Sue" was, in my own estimation, one of the top ten best songs of all time, ranking right up there with "Hey Jude" and "Jumping Jack Flash." It was also a very seminal song in that it was the first one I ever heard that had swearing in it.

Johnny, you were the original son of a bitch, and we loved you for it. Thanks for the memories. . . you really did it "One Piece At A Time."

I have to say that part of the reason I like a good FPS session is sometimes for the graphics. While getting a silky-smooth running game is always great, it's nice occasionally to kick the settings up higher and endure some choppiness from time to time in order to appreciate the environment I was running in. Serious Sam was phenomenal for that, and added a big run-and-shoot factor as well.

UT2003 looks like it's going to fulfill all those requirements, with the exception of the "lots of enemies with minimal slowdown" factor.

The mini-spider was called an "arachnotron."

Jesus, I need a vacation just for being able to know that right away. Too many freaking videogames. But yeah, the arachnotron. . .

As a side note, I love seeing the poorly-spelled, poorly-conceived and poorly-presented posts on forums like these, and hate them at the same time. I love them because I know these are the same people I am in competition with for employment and advancement, which makes me feel great about my chances. See you at the minimum wage line, grammatically challenged pinheads!

On the *same* note, I feel badly because these people might actually decide to vote in an upcoming election and elect a turkey baster for president. It's certainly possible.

Trolls, go back under your bridges and wait for schoolgirls to walk by so you can try to peek up their skirts. It's the biggest thrill you'll ever get in your lives, I assure you.

Come on, don't be retarded. This game looks great, and if you haven't seen the Doom legacy movie, check it out. It's safe to say that this game will make UT 2003 look like, to recycle an old quote, "a sad little cartoon." Not to say that UT 2003 will be crappy; on the contrary, I think it will be a great game. There's more to games then just great graphics.

This game is designed to be played in a room with a black blanket nailed over the window, candles (if any light at all) and the subwoofer cranked. If you're sitting there nitpicking over individual polygons on a screen shot that it is freaking HUGE, it bears mentioning, you're not getting the mpoint.

However, since I assume that you idiots are just trying to troll, don't let a little rationality get in the way of your brand of "fun."

I was able to recognize which level they were showing in 5 out of 6 those screenshots for Doom II for GBA.

No, no. The thing that made those games -- and more modern counterparts such as Doom or Tony Hawk Pro Skater -- is the addictive single-player experience those old games provided.

In today's gaming age of EverCrack, Quake III and Diablo II, the single-player game is somewhat forgotten. In those old games, you could do two players, but almost all the time, you just took turns on playing the same good game.

Good games to remember from that era: Star Castle, Time Pilot, Red Baron, Scramble, Zaxxon (don't think it will play the same on a PC without that great controller, though), Elevator Action, Cloak & Dagger (ignore the movie with Dabney Coleman), Tempest, Satan's Hollow, Food Fight, Robotron and Defender. Gauntlet was great for multiplayer.

Also, Smash TV was a worthy modern throwback to those games. God, they were fun. Single player is the main reason I play so much THPS 2 these days, most modern games just don't supply that experience.

There's a great article available at Planet Quake which talks about all the old stuff that id had intended to put into Quake, not the least of which was the idea for "franchising" Quake for local players through LAN setups. I'm happy to say that for a short time, I got to experience what that vision was like. Sort of a "pay to play" kind of thing in a virtual zero-ping environment. Add in sodas and pizza, and you had the makings of al all-night LAN fragfest that signaled some of the best times in my life.

I used to live in Chico, and I'd like to give a quick shout-out to VR Maxx, one of the places that started a business based on this model. Sadly, they went out of business but I still have my first place prize in the tournament, a registered copy of Quake that had brought my boatloads of joy ever since. They even had the virtual-reality helmets as well. As a quick side note, I have to say that the reason that the helments didn't catch on wasn't because of their price. . . it was because you couldn't do a mouse flick in it wuthout breaking your neck. Anybody with a decent command of a mouse and keyboard would work you every time, guaranteed. . . are you listening, CrunchyCat? I have to say though, those first few matches inside the helmet made my heart race. Good old Quake! Thank you, id Software, for such a great game.

As a final notes, QuakeOn is still available as a freeware program and it's the best front-end GUI for Quake I have ever run across. Check it out at http://www.planetquake.com/quakeon and you won't be sorry.

Peace.

Wow, lots of replies on this one. Personally, I'm amazed that PC games run as well as they do out of the box. Think of all the tweaks, drivers and utilities that are out there in addition to company-sanctioned products such as driver updates. This creates one nightmarish patchwork quilt of settings and rates that programmers have to keep in mind when making the games. A patch is necessary in today's age, because we aren't all sitting on 486's or P1's any more.

And the post about the clipping is right; I don't think that will ever truly go away, although I have hopes Doom III will finally pull it off. It's really not that annoying, though. Most of the time when I see a guy lying halfway through a wall I laugh and move on. Occasionally I make a joke about him being half the man he used to be, like John Wayne Bobbit. Then I move on.

Come on, folks, it's a game. Treat it like one.

A first-person shooter with a decent storyline and graphic engine by John Carmack, followed by the usual amazing art from id's guys and topped off by Trent Reznor's sound effects and music sounds phenomenal. Anybody remember John Romero saying that "Quake will make Doom look like a sad little cartoon"? This will be the game that will do the same to Quake III Arena.

Damn. . . this is gonna be expensive. . .

That doesn't really mean anything. The Prima strategy guide for Deploratana (aka Die-katana) came out two to three months before the game did. It was released in April as a guide and didn't hit stores as the game until June. Also, it looks like this is a Brady Games guide, not a Prima one.

BTW, IMHO, Game guides = food for cheaters. Just play the game.

Jesus H. Christ, and I thought college was hedonistic. Thirty dollars for admission? Seat cushion rental? Oral sex from people you just met? If this is the way it is, John Belushi would be the top UT player in Hell!

Seriously, we all know this is bullcrap. They're making the typical LAN party sound like a cross between John Romero's office and the set of a porno flick. The LAN parties I went to were considered high-class if we had Heineken instead of Miller Genuine Draft, and the chairs were metal folding jobs. Weed? Maybe on payday, but it was only for the smokers. It's not like there was an en masse frenzied rush of red-eyed CS players leaping for the bong.

As a former journalist myself, this kind of garbage makes me sick. Piss on Salon.

Hey folks--

A few quick questions/comments to put out there.

1) Has anybody heard if Gore (when it reaches full-fledged demo status, as opposed to Test1, Test2, etc.) will be put onto a game magazine CD for people to test out? Some of us don't have the kewl cable/DSl/T-Whatever connection and would like to give it a spin but don't want to wait 6 hours for the download.

2) Sounds like a lot of the slagging that is going on is because it seems unpolished, unimagintaive, etc. Well, this *is* a FPS game, and killing things has always been the goal of a FPS game. No originality there, that's for sure. Q3A wasn't original, but it does deliver a fine game, so who cares if we've seen that particular cow before? The game is the important thing, and if people are having fun, why not let them?

3) Oh, also, this is a *test* game. I posted something similar like this for the Wolf test thread as well. People, you can't expect a TEST to fully measure up to established games like CS, UT and Q3A. Until it's gone gold and in the stores, be constructive with the criticism.

4) I have to admit, it doesn't look that impressive in the screenshots. Then again, I wasn't particularly impressed by my first visual evidence of Quake back in 1996. When I got my paws on it, boy was I wrong about that game. Not saying Gore will be Quake Redux, but I'm willing to give it a chance, at least on the full-fledged demo version.

5) All of this is being written by somebody who has never played the game. I'll wait for the finished demo, no tests for me, thanks. Tests have this way of crashing systems. . . let the downloader beware!

Agreed and agreed here with the poster earlier who commented on JDOOM. Although it takes some getting used to in terms of mouselooking, JDOOM looks and runs great and will run just about any vanilla DOOM levels out there. DOOM II looked phenomenal.

In fact, I like this guy's work so much that I went on Ebay last week and picked up a game pack from a guy who was selling Heretic and DOOM I, among others. In terms of freeware and getting new life from what's already a great game, you can't beat it. Glad to see some positive stuff going on in the community.

I'm looking around for some DOOM II levels that I used to have (back in 1995), but apparently CDROM.com may be pulling the plug on this archive. Does anybody know of good archives with a wide variety of the levels?

Thanks all.

Uh, wasn't the main focus of RTCW supposed to be a *single-player* campaign? Hell, we should be happy they even decided to put in multiplayer. Count your blessings, even if you don't see them as such.

People slag now and it's a freaking tech test, for God's sakes. I shudder to think what would have happened if they hadn't put in MP and had people screaming out on ever forum they could find about how it's "only half a game" or some garbage like that. Then, those who already game online would have said, "See, I *knew* that would suck because of no MP" and just gone back to playing Q3A, UT or HL.

Of course, now they can btich and whine about how the tech test doesn't live up to the standards of games that have gone throughe extensive patching, aka bug fixing.

You people are never satisfied with anything.

Sorry #45, that was a little bitchy of me. Serves me right for posting before I've had the third cup of coffee. No offense, my bad. I still haven't seen any reviews that state it as a Q1 engine, but since the Q2 engine is an outgrowth of the original, I guess we're both right.

On another subject, though, I *did*, however, find it a bit odd that Half-Life has gone with the Deathmatch Classc mod for the game that essentially re-creates the DM experience of Quake 1. If they are running the game off a modified Q1/Q2 engine, is the gameplay any better on this game than the straight vanilla Q1 experience? Since I'm always looking for good DM stuff and I have Half-Life in the stack of shooter CD's, is this anything I should look into?

Just curious, I'm always on the prowl for more fun. After all, more fun does *not* suck.

> Half life's engine was built on the quake1 engine... not quake2...

Every review I've seen of that thing said "built on a modified version of the Quake 1/Quake 2 engine," but if you really want to split hairs, whatever. So we'll say Quake 1 engine. That's even moldier than the Quake 2 version, and it's *still* made by id.

Note that below I did not say that moldy = bad, because I still like Quake 1. However, I *am* wondering if there was a point behind that besides pointing out your own technical knowledge.

Was there?
