[0.8.2|Tc|YAVP] First win as technician! (+Video)
« on: October 06, 2017, 00:46 »

So, I've been feeling like making another recording lately, but I'm in the middle of an ArchAo666 run in DRL, so I thought I'd bring some attention back to this old classic, AliensRL!  :)  I didn't expect to win; I was just kind of messing around with my new recording software and playing with putting an overlay of my face on the side of the recording, but somehow, despite some very harrowing battles and a lot of close calls, I prevailed!  Yay!  :D  (Finding a Colt .44 on level 1 was a big help for that)  :)

Here are the videos:

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

I played as a Technician for no particular reason except that I haven't played as that character much and built up the tech skill right at the beginning to play to his strengths.

It's been a while since I played, but I remember the Combat Shotgun being quite overpowered and I seem to recall saying it's the only thing that made victory possible, but I never found one in this game, so I guess that disproves that!  :)  That being said, it took a while for me to build up enough supplies and courage to take on the Queen's chamber.  (I didn't find a pulse rifle until quite late in the game)

I know everyone is busy with Jupiter Hell, but I still think this game is a lot of fun and would love to see it get some more development some day.  :)

Hmm...
I did give ARL a try once,but I couldn't get into it. Maybe I should do it again...
How is DiabloRL though?

AliensRL is a very different style than DRL, with a lot of focus on having a tense, moody atmosphere where it's actually better to avoid a lot of the enemies instead of having a need to kill everything.  So it has a very different set of challenges that I find make it a welcome change from playing DRL sometimes.

As for DiabloRL, I only played it once and that was years ago, so I can't really comment on it.  I never got into it.

The two other works by Kornel, DiabloRL and BerserkRL have very different playstyles. If you liked Diablo, the RL version is made to be as close to original as possible. I think it's completed up until the caves (charging demons are hard to implement in a RL), except for a few magical effects. BerserkRL is more fast paced "I'm about to die, but I'm doing so much damage!" style. If you enjoy playing melee DRL then give it a try.

Is there a playable version of BerserkRL somewhere?

Oh, yeah. Forgot that the page no longer exists with the downloads for it. Looks like Kornel is awesome and opened the source, so head over to sourceforge and grab a copy to play.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/berserkrl/files/berserkrl/

If you've any doubt of what to download, there's some shiny "looking for the latest version?" text near the top.

Cool, thanks!  I've been curious to see that game in action for a while.  :)
