    Absurdly well known videogame trivia

    Kirby is named after the lawyer John Kirby who defended Nintendo in the Universal Studios lawsuit over Donkey Kong/King Kong. He won. It turned out Universal didn't own King Kong either. The blood code in the Mega Drive version of Mortal Kombat (A,B,A,C,A,B,B) is the name of an album by Genesis (yageddit?). The "SEGA" jingle played on startup in the original Sonic game takes up half of the total cartridge space. The original Gran Turismo was in development as early as 1993 when the Nintendo/Sony deal was still on the table. Had things been different, GT might have been a Nintendo SuperDisc title and one of the Big N's killer IPs. Probably would have had fewer microtransactions these days, too. Psygnosis weren't provided with a PS2 devkit when work began on WipEout Fusion. The initial sizzle-reel footage was created on a PC and all work had to be scrapped when it turned out that the PS2' architecture was completely incompatible with what they'd produced. The game suffered as a result and up until last week was widely regarded the worst game in the series...
  3. What I'm finding hilarious is the amount of speculation following the announcement that Banjo-Kazooie is coming later for the N64 app. I would like to state the following: No. You Are Not Getting Goldeneye. You Might Get Perfect Dark, You Are Not Getting Goldeneye. Though, to be honest, I'd be interested to see the if the id ports show up. I know we already have native ports of Doom 64 and Quake 64, but Q1 and Q2 take a LOT of pissing around with to get them to emulate properly and it would be interesting to see just how good Nintendo's in-house N64 emulation really is.
  4. So the NSO N64 and Mega Drive games are going to cost extra and the accompanying controllers are FIFTY GODDAMN BUCKS EACH??? Fifty bucks for a THREE-BUTTON Mega Drive pad. Not to mention how much extra the sub is going to cost. My advice? Grab the N64 one and get one of the Retro-bit 2.4Ghz 6-button ones for half the price. Also Final Fantasy Kart XD

    The final boss of doom 2005

    Stahl (the prisoner they experimented on) was incredibly buff and became a Hellknight, so it would make sense that Sarge was turning into the something similar. Personally I'd have loved to see Sabaoth on the big screen, but the they'd have to foreshadow the cybernetic enhancements and the movie is already something of a trainwreck.

    Is DOOM 3 Cannon in the Doom Universe?? D:

    I still feel like they missed a trick in not designating Doom 3 and RoE as prequels in the new timeline. Think about it - Swann and Campbell are sent up to Mars to check on a rogue scientist conducting experiments not sanctioned by the company. Shit hits fan leaving only one survivor, the Marine, who is rescued and taken away for... debriefing. The UAC uses its vast resources to bury the story until the heat dies down. The facility lays derelict for two years. Then McNeil and her team are sent up to Mars on recon in the hopes of starting up the project again. Shit hits fan again and it is heavily implied that this time there are NO survivors. The UAC tries to bury it once again, but this time the military gets wind of what happened and puts the squeeze on the company to keep the Mars facility open so that THEY can exploit it. After all, the military IS the UAC's biggest supplier. Thus begins the events of OG Doom. I could spend some more time fleshing out the details, but you get the idea.

    Explain to me what the deal with Skyline Chili is

    Probably best then for me not to mention how my mum used to serve bolognese on rice...

    Why are so many indie games retro-styled?

    There's loads of those. Granted, SNES is a bit thin on the ground but the old dogs are being kept alive in earnest.
  9. I do. It cost me an entire PC.

    Do you own any old game consoles/games

    That was on AVGN's Pong consoles episode.

    Rebecca still has the resources of doom 3DO

    What I find fascinating about the whole 3DO Doom debacle is that it is basically a scene-for-scene retread of what happened with ET on the Atari, albeit with somewhat lesser fallout. Awesome to see Becky still has the raw data. Hopefully it can be preserved in some format if it hasn't already.

    Doomworld Musicians, serenade us with your beautiful music!

    Had an absolute blast putting this together, but not without cost. My trusty (rusty) old workstation of more than 10 years finally gave up right in the middle of the production, so I had to retrieve the hard drives and connect them to my (somewhat underpowered) laptop in order to get it finished. Downloads available in the description. I fully understand that I'm fucking with a masterpiece here, but I only do this with music that I love.
  14. DRM claims another scalp. TBH I steered clear of games that used GFWL after the absolute shitshow that was GTAIV on PC. I lost an entire day of my life trying to get that shit to launch, resulting in my desire to even play the damn thing pretty much disappearing. Even when I DID finally get it to run, it didn't run for very long.
  15. Kidnap the greatest warriors from throughout history at the precise point of their death and pit them against each other in gladiatorial combat for my own sick amusement.
