  1. Cola 3: The Soda of Style

    Makes me think of this:
  2. Third Person Action Adventure Games

    Probably one of the greatest action adventure games ever made right here. I've heard bad things about the PC port, but the PS1 version is a masterpiece.
  3. Any Heretic/Hexen fans here?

    Heretic is incredible. The only thing I don't like about it is the BFG replacement. Hexen is great but not as good as Heretic. I don't care much for the hub style of mapping, and the puzzles aren't very interesting or meaningfully connected in any way. The combat can also be a little slow in certain parts. Still, it's amazingly well detailed and has one of the very best weapons in any first-person shooter (Wraithverge). I didn't find anything about it confusing and never once got lost, but there were a couple of instances when I got locked out of the game due to bugs and had to resort to noclipping. I'm about a third of the way through Hexen 2 at the moment. I think it's just alright. I guess my main issue is that the combat just isn't very good. Like, it doesn't flow or feel very good somehow. It's kind of jerky and random, and something about it is just off. Random question for those in the know. Are there any Hexen WADs that don't utilize the HUB format, but rather the standard mapping format? I don't recall ever any hearing of any.
  4. I'm simultaneously watching Chronicles of the Heroic Knight and Season 2 of Umaru Chan.
  5. What a goofball. Impossible to take anything he says seriously. Wouldn't be surprised if he becomes president some day.
  6. What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    I'm playing Hexen 2. I played the demo a long time ago and hated it. It's better than I remember, but it's not exactly setting my world on fire. Some good ideas, but the combat feels sloppy, and a few of the puzzles are a bit obtuse. I'm amazed that I haven't gotten stuck yet. I've heard a few times that it's literally impossible to beat the game without a walkthrough, but I'll see if that's true or not.
  7. What Quake port is best for me?

    Quakespasm is a fork of Fitzquake.
  8. What Quake port is best for me?

    Darkplaces looks pretty nice when you apply a small number of the graphical enhancements (smoke and blood effects, in particular, look good), but when you turn all of them on, it looks downright weird and nothing at all like Quake.
  9. What Quake port is best for me?

    It really comes down to either Darkplaces or Quakespasm. Darkplaces has a bunch of flashy graphical enhancements, but Quakespasm offers a much higher range of mod compatibility. To my knowledge, I only know of two mods that will work with Darkplaces, but not Quakespasm. Nowadays there's a lot of stuff coming out that will only work with Quakespasm and nothing else. I used to be all about Darkplaces, but I switched to Quakespasm and haven't looked back. I recommend it wholeheartedly. It's an all-around phenomenal source port, and will always have a special place in my heart.
