  1. 25th, in fact. Or a quarter of a century. Or a fortieth of a certain DooM project.

    /me goes off to update his site that's lay un-updated for a quarter of a year :p

      You're 9 years older than me now. :D

      They let people of your age use the internet?!

    3. Bucket


      People our age made the internet what it is.

    4. Sporku


      People my age shouldn't be alloud to use the internet. Either that, or stupid people my age (which accounts for 75% of them) should be denied access to computers in general.

      Oh, and happy birthday, too.

  2. Next week (Wednesday in fact), I'm changing from narrowband to broadband (hooray!). Soon I'll be able to do stuff 5x faster, go on the web whenever I want (no phones), and of course visit DW even more often than I do now (and that's often). Who knows, I might even venture into the world of deathmatch, watch this space.

    In other news, I've finished map 19 of SSD (currently working on a cool part of map 20), grabbed a couple of great albums, I'll be visiting my 4th live robot combat event in 7 weeks (don't ask me how, it's just timing and placing) and looking forward to the new footie season, which kicks off tomorrow.

    Anyway, that's it for now.

      Just because you can surf it faster doesn't make the internet better.

      Man, I didn't know you were on dial-up, well, at least your not anymore. Prepare to waste even more time in front of the screen =-)

    Pretty cool, I finally get to see the source of the saying. Is that the original dialogue or is it the movie-maker doing voice acting through one of those things that alters voices?

      Here's an animated gif. I think it uses the images from the game. I don't think it's meant to "seem right" though.

    3. Piezo


      I first found that on Newgrounds.com and it had a link to the audio source Laziest Men On Mars. It was a page to supposedly buy their album but now they don't seem to exist. The animation was also supposedly done by bad_CRC. Anybody know what happened to them?

  4. What's the longest it's ever taken you to finally beat a game?

    Mine is 9 years - that's how long it took me to beat Legend, an old but very addictive RPG:

    Early 1994 - first got it with my 386, learned how to play it and was defeated on a puzzle early in the 3rd section out of 10. Spent a while just bouncing around in the outdoor areas (away from dungeons) then dropped it.

    Late 1996 - worked out how to do the puzzle (after mainly letting it rest), so I decided to play it again. Went on what was arguably my most memorable period of gaming, but 3 weeks later was defeated on a puzzle later on in the 9th section out of 10. Tried everything to beat it after then but couldn't, so I dropped it.

    Late 2001 - Worked out how to beat the puzzle in my head (it just came to me suddenly) but thought I no longer had the game.

    Early 2002 - Proved myself wrong by finding it by chance in the attic with all the old shareware stuff (including DooM, heh) so it made a nice 22nd birthday present. Immediately got it running on my P200, and a couple of weeks later (my most memorable period of gaming again, as I'd completely forgotten most of the game) I finally finished it. The ending? One message scroll with a victory message on it...

    And to commemorate the occasion, I recreated that infamous puzzle (albeit with a different, but equally creative solution) and the dungeon area immediately around it in E5M6 of Shadowcaster.

    I also took 6 years to beat Lemmings 2 - after getting stuck on the last Sports level - (first got it in 1994, finished it in 2000 after coming up with a brainwave, commemorated it by adding the victory tune to my Lemmings 2 music cd) but this one was definitely the longest-running saga.

      Civilization, I suppose. My dad got it for me in like 91-92 after telling me about this game where you play as a king and make decisions. I was like "OOOh, I want to play that!" and he was like "I dunno, it's pretty advanced", but I insisted and he got it (warezed from a friend, he never bought any games, the cheapskate). Turns out he was right. I sucked royaly at it. For some reason, it took me almost a month just to figure out how to build a unit. Anyway, I played it for years, and finaly got good enough that I could score a space race victory on almost every game. I could not, however, get any military domination victories before the end of the game.

      I finaly did it in what was possibly the last time I played the game, right before i got Civ2, so probably 97-98. So I guess it took me a good 5-6 years to get it. I remember what the victory date was too. 1932 AD, as King Bonham (wtf?) of the Germans. Can't remember the score though.

      I don't beat very many games. 90% of all games I play, I just diddle around with for a week, then when I get back to them I start a new game or something, so I never manage to beat them. I still haven't gotten military victories in Civ2 or Civ3. I havent beaten Diablo 1 or 2 on single player despite the thousands of hours I've put into them (though I did just yesterday get a sorcerer all the way to the 11th dungeon level in Diablo, so perhaps I'm getting there). I've also never beaten Doom2, not even with cheats.

      No, überspamming != ownz0ring

      Blogs may well be the BS spam forum, but it does serve a purpose, and monging it up by spraying every thread with random crap will still irritate people after a while.

    (I thought this up after I posted the other one, so I couldn't change it then. So you get the DooM polls all in a pole of their own)

      All I care about is the pole position

      This presumably knocked some poles over too.

  15. We all know them and love (or hate) them, so which do you think is the best?

      Come to think of it, the third one looks most like an 'r'...

  17. If doing most of map 25 and the finishing touches to map 29 wasn't enough, I now get to do map 24 as well! More hellish-mapping practice for me then... (which is handy, as I'm less than a map away from doing the hellish maps for Super Sonic DooM - which is going to be put on hold again...)

    btw (for those who've forgotten or don't know), Plutonia II is a megawad designed to be a sequel to the best megawad ever (Plutonia), has been in production for 2 years and is nearly complete. It also has a seriously up-to-date site.

      is it going to require a certain port? Like ZDoom, or will be just like the original and run with doom2.exe?

  22. Had what could be described as a mini-hurricane this morning, with dark skies, thunder/lightning, wind and rain moving quickly together, flooding my street completely (which is the first time I've ever seen it happen!). And it finished as abruptly as it had begun, now it's all hot and sticky again. (it was even sunny beforehand!)

    British weather pwns all others! (not)

      Here (Bristol) there was thankfully a pleasant breeze today, which make things far more pleasant. It had been getting a bit ridiculous.

      My parents are on a coach tour of Spain at the moment; they just called me, and mentioned that the temperature where they are had peaked at around 47 degrees C today.
