  1. we all remember wolf3d, doom and quake, but what about the hundreds of clones that were made?

    if you grew up or were older at the time of doom's release then you remember the doom clones. i remember a few space invader clones and pac-man clones. Some were really good games, others just really sucked. some were left out becuase there was no real way for them to measure up to the large games like doom and quake.

    before PC and gameboy i was into atari. i loved my 2600 and 5200 systems. we had a shit load of games. of course some of these were clones of popular games like sapce invaders and pac-man.
    one game i do remember was called "theif" no not that 1st person game. it was a pacman clone. get the pellets, or in the case i am guessing coins or diamonds. however unlike our yellow friend pacman. this guy could defend him self anyware on the map. you could place up to 3 barriers to keep the cops from getting you. if you needed another after the 3rd was placed the 1st disapeared. well thats what i recall of the game. also your guy was a red hat with feet.

    a space invaders clone was nearly unplayable at that age. the invaders shot things at you and randomly ones you shot would come falling down toawrds you. however this may have been a tandy game.

    years later i am to PC gaming and doom. Soon i saw a number of doom clones. my mother registered with a game company and each month they sent us like 10 CD's with shareware and full games. most sucked. however i do remember a few.

    cyclones was kinda cool, but i hated the way you contorled it. it had "3d" floors and i recall jumping. not much else.

    ken's 3d deal, i remember this one for being kinda tacky. it was fun even if wierd. i never understood why growing tall and small mattered in this game. however it was the base of the build engine the duke3d later was made from.

    ROTT - best clone ever! if i recall this was to be the second wolf3d, but that changed for some reason. anyways it rocked. however never got the attention that doom got, i mean it came out between doom and doom II and then quake and duke3d.

    Duke3d - i remember it because it was a fun game. however i remember all the fights about duke3d engine being better than quake. This game was just as much a blast as ROTT.

    now onto playstation. There is one game that i think is a direct copy of RE and its gameplay. however i dout the story, even if they are similar. I am talking about parasite eve 2. however those games are based off a book, that i think was out before RE. either way you really think about RE when you play it. you even have to hit action to go up/down steps. Unlike RE it has some RPG elements to it. you can unlock powers and you have MP. This one is one of my favorite games for the playstation.

    what other clones are out there. these are only the ones that stand out for me.

    You think banning books is bad? In most schools, try going to any website that talks about banned books (including government sites). Good luck getting past filters. I was going to do some research on banned books as part of a project for an English class, and none of the computers would let me even Google search on the topic because of a "weighted phrase limit."

    "Land of the free" indeed.

    in high school i remember being able to visit the american cummunist and socialist home pages with no problems. i even set the hammer and sickle as the back ground.
    I rememeber a teacher was upset by the fact i did that, but i told her i was really a communist and did it as a joke. i guess that worked for her cause i was never hassled about it. at the time i did it because i was bored and because i wanted to.

  3. like he said find a porn game if that is what you are looking for.
    nope, no nudity or graphic sex. maybe there is a mod, but out of the box, no. maybe clouds and blurs. its a teen rated game dude so what would you expect.

    personaly i hated the sims. ok i didn't really hate it, but its more of a game i would pick up from a bargine bin. i would not waste my money on the other 2 or 3/4 games that have been made.

  4. wasn't the article about the doom movie in some dumb ass tabloid mag? if so you guys are too fucking easy! I mean come on, a store check out isle mag!

    i don't know why they would be serious about those changes. one reason is that it would be very stupid and too much like RE or similar to a great number of other zombie movies. personaly i think it is a joke. maybe it was a sudgestion.

    as far as the rating, has to be R. i mean come on its a mature rated game. either way the movie, no matter how it turns out, will most likly be fairly bad.

    a good game that would make a good b movie is parasite eve, or parasite eve II. has all the makings of a classic B sci-fi horror movie.

  5. i have heard it all at work. everything from jews to the devil are INSIDE games or behind them. a woman claimed that HP was supporting gays and was run by the devil. lets not forget the fact that the electrical field from her body killed her computer, not the fact she dropped it down a flight os stairs.

    games can be a bad thing if they take up too much of your life, just liek anything else. also young children really should not play games like doom III and silent hill or GTA. but that is the parents choice and responsibility.

    its like thos dumb fucks sueing wall mart because a cd had the f-word in it. its times like that i wish the court would break out the cerimonial gun and place it in that persons mouth and pull the trigger.

    lessons of life
    SHIT happens, no matter what! bad shit will happen and sometimes there is nothing to blame.
    take responsiblity for your own actions and or stupidity.
    don't be a jerk to other because the world isn't the way you want it.

    i think it is good to see a good attitude towards games. after all it is a good way to release the stress of the day.

  6. yea those things use alot of power and as of now are not very efficient compared to chemical explosives.

    i remember seeing a home made "rail gun" on a site a while back, but it didn't launch at high speed. not even a speed that could hurt or leave a bruse.

    try making a tesla coil or something.

  7. I am not into online play that much. yea it's fun, but i am not doing it 8 hours a day. i might do it everyonce and a while. personaly i would rather go to a small lan party and play a few games just for the hell of it.
    i then think of people who are totaly hardcore about online play and clans. a number of clans seem to be little more than comical misfits who take it too seriously. However i have never heard of or seen any of this drama end up in a court room or get media attention.

    so here are some events that i am sure will happen, if they havent already.

    clans face off in court room over name, logo or site. I am surprised i have never seen this happen in our sue happy age.

    fist fight stops lan party.
    hey it happens in sports so it bound to happen at big lan parties. i am sure there have been a few small fights. however i have never heard of 2 groups getting in a massive brawl at a lan party.

    company sues clan or clan sues company overr name, logo or site. i could see this happening first. a big company or group sueing a clan over some copy right issue dealing with a name, logo or site.

    i am sure it is only a matter of time before we start hearing about such things

  8. unless you have something wrong with your system there really should be no reason mozilla or firefox don't work. i have never had it cause an major fuckups on any system i have installed it on.

    honeslty i don't really think IE is bad or terrible. The only real reason i grabed mozilla for windows is because it has a built in pop-up blocker and tabs. it is more secure in the sence people just havn't found the holes in it.

    I really mainly got it for linux because it has more support than konqueror for stuff like flash.

  9. same around here the local radio stations have been playing nothing but pantera. can't say i really listened to much pantera, but still it sucks he was gunned down like that.

    of the concerts i have been too i don't reacll many police or even security guards.

    i would see CNN giving this more coverage over rumsfeild being made look like an ass. even if just to save from critsism and embarrassment.

  10. i have never had any issues with mozilla/fire fox. i was a bit untrusting at first, but then i tried it out. works great.
    i have never had an major issues with it. i have run it on 350Mhz systems with 64MB ram and i run it on my dual 2400+ system.

    i have run into few pages that have issues with fire fox.

    as far as security goes there is little spyware that affects in and it stops 99% of popups. however i am sure as it grows spammers and spyware makers will find ways to deal with fire fox. however with that many people working on firefox i am sure they will be limited.

    either way it works great and is worth a try.

  11. how about which ever one you DON'T have to pay to play. honestly you buy the game and then you have to pay to play it, that is nothing but pure bull shit.

    I am sure you have to pay to play everquest, not sure about world of warcraft. now i can understand paying for a service that works for other games, but not for a single title. maybe a service that allows all MMORPG's, then i could see paying and would most likly do so. not gonna pay to play each title, nope i dont give in like that. no matter how good a game is.

  12. Nice to see the whole linear vs open ended flamewar is still burning strong.

    So what! Doom and half-life 2 were made that way. If you dont like games that play out in one direction then ok. You don't need to bitch because the game doesn't suit you. If i don't like a game I don't play it. Example I don't like the GTA games, so freaking what! Thats MY choice. I don't care how much anyone loves those games, I don't care. It's one thing to state why you didn't like it, but another to bitch that it wasn't the way you wanted it.

    anyways i have enjoyed half-life and doom III. half life runs better on my system. however it was made with ATI cards in mind. However doom III has alot of cool stuff compared to half-life 2. the shadows in doom III are far better than half-life II

    Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is my favorite game of 2004. To anyone who hasn't played it, do so now!

    don't own a system that can play it. unless it is out for x-box or PC. just like i want to play metroid prime, but cant, as i dont own a game cube. i am not gonna buy a system for 1 game.

  15. heart was ment for the gay children and people i guess. i dont know. i remember the show and i thought it was a bit amusing. however i prefered some GI joe and gonad the barbarian. I also remember watching the A-Team a shit load, but cant remember any of the details or even what it was about.

  16. hmmm maybe i should put that "ghost" from my grandarents house in a bottle. but if it was real i would save it for someone i really hated and release it there.

    maybe the bottle is worth something. I think i should open it up and breath the contents.

    man maybe there is room in the business world for a a ghost buster. that would be a sweet ass job.

  17. i havnt gotten to play witht eh new hammer editor. i asume things a really differnt compared to half-life. i was getting good at doin gsome maps but never completed any. i would have a small idea and do it, then get bored. the only complete map i did was for a graphics class in high school. sence the computers we used where shitty and down alomst every day. i made a map and got a 100 percent for it. i even had to bring in my laptop to do it cause the computers there where so terrible.

  18. i found my demon gate CD, has 6000 wads for doom and doom II. most are trash, and i mean trash. some even look like test maps for showing off effects and ideas. i remember one really bad one that showed a doom bug. "amanda.wad" showed what happened when you had too much on the screen. another also showed me for the first time the voodoo doll effect.
    i have D! zone too and another i stole from this woman. the cover was really really bad. looked like a 10 year old made it in MS pain and printed it out on a inkjet, infact i think it was printed on an inkjet. anyways it came with loaders and a few editors. i think she must have picked it up at a computer show
