    Unreal Gold is currently free on GOG

    I still have the original and Unreal Gold disks. The best part is that it doesn't need a disk to play the game.

    You missed out on a lot of fun. Hope you will enjoy Unreal Gold (and the series as a whole) as much as I did.

    Oh my goodness, I completely forgot about this until you posted this topic. Happy 20th anniversary to Unreal Gold, a never-ending adventure that is still a unique experience. It has aged incredibly well. I need to play the campaign again, there still needs exploring on Na Pali.

    What are you listening to?

    Just listening to Quake. So dark, yet so catchy.

    Opinions on Modern First Person Shooters

    You can't forget about the enemy sound design as well. The A.I.'s reaction when you throw a grenade, communicating with a teammate, or kill one with the element of surprise ("Where did that come from!?" still never gets old). There is none of that in today's games, as far as I can tell. Hell, F.E.A.R.'s sound design is what drives the games atmosphere, as most of the time, the player is all alone, carefully treading his steps, and getting the lights scared out of them when they trip over a soda can. With no presence of Replica's/ATC/Nightcrawlers or the paranormal threat of Alma around.

    You have to stop Lord Voldemort then. That's the quest.

    In retrospect: Caleb from Blood needs to be on here instead of Chex Warrior. It's heresy without Caleb as an old-school hero.

    I'm just saying that Corvus is an ancestor because of the similar weapon lineups. Sorry, didn't think this through enough. My theory is something I pulled out of my ass.

    The story behind your custom avatar

    Unreal 2 is a disappointment, that I agree with you on. At least Unreal original had something going for it besides graphics, with a simple, but deep plot that unravels through, and decent gameplay. Legend also made the Na Pali expansion pack, and while it has it's fair share of letdowns, it's still better than Unreal 2 by a mile. The movement is fucking terrible, I couldn't agree with you more on. It's on par with Half-Life 1's slippery ice-skating movement, and I can't decide which one feels worse. I have the feeling that Legend crippled the movement to make the game seem longer. That is horrible game design right there. Oh, and dodging is turned off by default. Even the music feels disappointing, as there were only 2 tracks that gave me an Alexander Brandon/Michel Van Den Bos vibe. All Unreal 2 has going for is the graphics, and that's it. Honestly though, Quake 2 is worse. Unreal 2 at least had colors and some unintentional hilarity, whereas Quake 2 bored the lights out of me with dull orange-brown colors and muddy combat. Quake 1 is the only Quake worth playing, as the whole series went downhill fast.

    The story behind your custom avatar

    Low polygon count has aged like fine wine because of Unreal's science fantasy art style. I actually like the dull grey environments of Deus Ex, since it adds up to the games depressing atmosphere. I played and enjoyed Unreal 2, but it doesn't hold a candle to the original. It's more of a spinoff than a sequel, honestly. I have an obsession with the graphics, probably some kind of fetishism. I see your username has Jupiter in it, referring to the Lithtech engine which F.E.A.R. runs on.
  11. I enjoy John Wayne movies. Personal favorite has to be The Searchers. Watching a movie with John Wayne in it is like golden sugar.

    Haven't played Hexen, but I am familiar with Heretic (Shadow of the Serpent Riders particularly). Corvus is pretty much a medieval ancestor to Doomguy. 849 is the protagonist in classic Unreal, pretty much a subversive Glass Cannon/Lightning Bruiser type of character. Haven't played Marathon, but I do know that the Security Officer can dual-weld double-barreled shotguns and can grenade jump.

    The FPS heroes of the 90's. Wait, are we missing someone?
  14. I think Scarface 1983 is overrated. Feels more convoluted and edgier compared to the 1933 version.
  15. Thanks for the clarification. I haven't seen 12 Angry Men in a long time, so my experience of it is a bit hazy. That movie is loathed by almost everyone. Why is it overrated? Practically every video game movie sucks. And I am being hypocritical by thinking the Jaws sequels are overrated while not thinking about the Doom Rock movie. Oh, I am losing my movie tastes.
