    Voodoo Detective - New point-and-click adventure game

    I would have called it "Voodootective"!

    What version of Serious Sam should I get?

    Oh, this reminds me: forget the Space Monkey, the worst enemy in Serious Sam 3 has to be the Dark Bride. Now, that is an annoying enemy: not only does it behave like Doom's Arch-Vile (with an even more annoying paralyzing attack), but also the fact that she keeps slowly teleporting around and is only vulnerable when attacking makes it impossible to quickly dispose of her. Luckily, she is not that common of an enemy, so she does not ruin Serious Sam 3 for me, but holy shit. What were Croteam thinking?
  3. I guess that is fair, but what is driving me nuts is that I am not sure if I am missing something or if, as Captain Keen surmised, some kind of bug is preventing me for getting the secrets.
  4. Pretty much. I can see it ending up as divisive as Doom 3, ironically enough. And who knows, maybe just like Doom, Duke Nukem 5 would have had to be a "return to form", like Doom 2016.

    Actually good movies!

    Yeah, if anything, it suffers from the same problem as Aliens - which Stan Winston also worked on - where the creature becomes less intimidating the moment you get a good look at it and witness how awkward it looks when it moves. However, the movie is not meant to be taken too seriously and Pumpkinhead is still an impressive creature (even if it is a bit derivative of the Xenomorph), so I am more than willing to forgive its shortcomings.

    I do not understand why people keep comparing Serious Sam 3 to a military shooter. Serious Sam games have always featured at least one reloadable weapon, there is no health regeneration, no stamina bar and no weapon limit, and hitscan enemies like Arachnoids have been a series' staple ever since the first game, so it only makes sense to have Cloned Soldiers who drop ammo and essentially behave like Doom's Zombiemen. If anything, Doom 3 is closer to a military shooter than Serious Sam 3!

    Ah, come on. The Space Monkeys are not that bad: most of the time, if you do not feel like blowing up their covers, you can just run past them and they will not follow you if you leave the room or the site they are hiding in.

    Games like Serious Sam: Bogus Detour?

    Allow me to answer to my own thread by bringing up a recent discovery: There is already a free-to-play version called 10 Minutes Till Dawn and it sure is addictive!

    Just saw Pumpkinhead: It was the late Stan Winston's directorial debut. Even though it did not do well commercially, it is a simple but effective John Carpenter-style horror movie with great practical effects (the opposite would have been surprising coming from Stan Winston), decent performances and a good, atmospheric score.

    Given how the fight is best played in third person, I have to disagree. :P Joking aside, the boss can be really frustrating if you do not know what you are doing. On my first attempt, I tried to rush to the pyramid's entrance and make my stand there, not realizing that it was pointless and that I could actually shoot down most of its projectiles. It is only when I figured out that I was allowed to backtrack and grab supplies that I missed during my mad dash that the battle did become actually enjoyable. I do hesitate calling Ugh-Zan III the best boss fight in a first-person shooter, however, as outside of the health regeneration gimmick, it is essentially the Cyberdemon fight from the original Doom all over again. It is still visually impressive, given the size of the boss as well as the arena, do not get me wrong, but from a gameplay perspective, it is fairly straightforward.

    You are not, do not worry. It is all a scam and you should not fall for it.

    The ongoing cryptocurrency crash

    @Lizardcommando I just hope that Larry David has the humility to make fun of himself by turning the whole situation into an actual Curb Your Enthusiasm skit. Like, he would convince his friends to invest in cryptocurrency, only for it to backfire horribly and Larry having to awkwardly flee. :P
  13. After spending an hour or so shooting and humping walls in E1M5, I had to give up and noclip my way to them; I still could not find the last one, however. If someone knows how to get the secrets, I would really like to know.

    This is an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm writing itself. XD

    Apparently, Larry David was one of the celebrities who endorsed cryptocurrency.
