a big THANK YOU and YASD
« on: December 15, 2007, 14:57 »

Hi, it's me again. It took me a while to notice that there's new RL game from Chaosforge - boy, what did I miss! I really love AliensRL, mainly for its great playability and all those little touches (hearing "Nash is dead..." again was a positive surprise I secretly anticipated - even though I never owned Amiga I DID saw the original).

Hereby I'd like to thank Kornel again for making this great game. Even though it's small by comparison, its greatness lies in high playability, something what even big titles miss sometimes. This is already third game made by Kornel I play and find enjoyable. So this is not "beginner's luck" or coincidence. This guy has talent - capturing those elusive elements of gameplay and bringing the right "blend" that would suit our taste is often a subject of expensive marketing studies - and this guy strikes three times in a row!
I guess I will check out that Berserk game too, even though I don't like Manga theme (one of the reasons was "Secret Service" mag wasting pages on Manga Room - I pay for game reviews dammit! and the X-Files... uggh... It's a game magazine, guys... I'm sure Kornel remembers times of "SS")

Here's my YAVP-wannabe... as the graveyard shows (wow, it worked THIS time) I got killed only few tiles from the elevator that would take me to lev2 when the aliens popped from nowhere... but I managed to kill that alien b*tch! yee-haaw! And seeing I've only 6% life left I took my killers with me using a grenade (reminds me of "Predator" movie ending scene, hehe!).

I guess I'll give the new game version a try as well :)

The game might be small now, but since the recent introduction of bugtracker, we spammed Kornel with RFE's.. erm, I mean we pushed him a bit, so after getting care of current Doom stuff, he's likely to get working on that.

Not sure about Kornel, but I do remember SS - even though I preferred Re$et ;P

Personally I think this more reminds me of Vesquez/Goreman scene in second Aliens movie :)

EDIT: ohh, I see you had Gero-stab and Smartgun... never managed to use Heavy Weapons myslef.
