He's fighting literal Nazis though right? Posted Image


Do millennials even know what a literal Nazi is? I doubt it, since they regularly misapply the term "literal" as well as the term "Nazi".

The whole concept of Wolfenstein is pretty contradictory because your goal is to defeat evil incarnate but, considering they have to keep milking the cow, BJ can never truly win over the Nazis.

Nevertheless, I like the new games a lot and stand by them, although I'm not planning to go through TNC anytime soon, still busy with the old ones.

I can't help but feel they retconned the old games out of continuity with the release of TOB, though. In TOB, what you do is basically what takes place in the first few chapters of RTCW, concluding with Helga being killed by the horror she summoned. Then the prologue of TNO is a reimagining of the Deathshead levels in RTCW with a different conclusion because the intent of the plot is to make the Nazis win this time.

There are a couple references to the classic games but I feel like they're pretty much just easter eggs with no impact on the story itself. I just can't logically work how BJ would thwart the plans from the SS Paranormal division in RTCW only to do the exact same thing 3 (5?) years later in TOB with the events following the exact same pattern (Wesley being electrocuted, rendezvous with Kessler, Helga being killed by the beast).

There is actually no retcon at all, as Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Wolfenstein (2009) are mentionned, threw Blascovicz being swimming in the butcher's pit under his lab and the presence of Caroline Becker having survived

Which I wrote earlier.

BJ mentions the X-Labs both in TNO and TOB but, to attain a cohesive lore, RTCW and Wolf09 must be discarded IMO, as RTCW conflicts with TOB. If they hadn't made TOB, everything would've been fine and dandy.

I really wanted to play this but I'm slightly behind "minimum requirements" even though both previous games ran just fine.

So I tried the demo and it does run fine, except that all text, including on the hud, appear glitched. This seems to be a common issue and on Steam forums people have solutions for it, none of which work, and the mods answer to this problem is pretty much "we don't give support if you're below sys requirements"...

So I'm wondering if anyone here had that same issue and actually fixed it?

BTW the demo consists of cutscenes, the wheelchair segment, and more cutscenes. Pretty stupid.

Alors le temps est peut être venu d'acheter un nouvel ordinateur, haut de gamme de préférence :D

Comme diraient les Inconnus : "Plus Commodores 64 depuis 3 décennies" :lol:
