  1. In Topic: Exhumed/Powerslave PC DOS underrated?

    Yesterday, 03:55 PM

    It's always had that "old game put on the backburner by the publisher" feel to me, especially considering how little has changed since the Dec 1995 public alpha demo release... it would be truly underrated had it came out on schedule before Duke3D to be appropriately together with the rest of the early clunky Build games, rather than the too-little-too-late it is.
  2. In Topic: Restoration of a few games' EXEs versions

    Different lineage, there's also some functionality loss in the source releases for Quake and Quake III Arena that existed in prior versions that are hard to recreate and have been omitted from the source release:

    Quake:
    - Menu fade tint (easily recreateable with the dead gelmap code scrap)
    - Sound attenuation calculation is different
    - DJGPP makefile is missing from source release

    Quake III Arena:
    - Dynamic lights updating the lightmap (Q3Test 1.01 to 1.07)
    - Null sound effect sawtooth buzz (Q3Test 1.01 to 1.08)
    - Fast 8-bit sample mixing (Q3Test 1.01 to Q3 1.27g - s_loadas8bit and s_compression)
    - Earlier protocols/traps before the big mod regression (1.11 to 1.17)

    Just mentioning it here because the q scene has 0 interest in anything that's not fucking promode aerowalk / brutal phase / bad hd packs. I don't really see interest in anything historical elsewhere.
  3. In Topic: Half-Life corner

    14 May 2018 - 06:46 PM

    "game genres i dont like are cod" isn't the point. The point is the big budget being pumped out for an annual 'popcorn depth' title, and Activision and Ubisoft can afford that with iterations of the same Sgt. McShoot / Open "World" formulas to the point where linear story-driven notMcShooty games are becoming a disturbing rarity of a hazard that investors are scared of.
  4. In Topic: The return of Rage

    I was expecting Brink 2 to be honest. Brink would benefit from this, even though another Splash Damage'd Brink would mean the same poor buggy sluggish objectives game.
