Bug Reports / Chainsword is a blunt weapon!
« on: September 07, 2016, 14:00 »
I assembled a chainsword and proceeded to promptly ripping and tearing some demon guts. Instead of a satisfying buzz-roar expected under such circumstances, my strikes sounded like hitting a wet sponge with a forehead covered in guacamole. Which means they made a default melee sound.

Is that meant to be? I realize it has no impact on the gameplay whatsoever and it's just a puny matter of aesthetics, but come on. :(

Play-By-Forum / ...In Which TGR Does A Global Interest Check
« on: August 22, 2016, 14:25 »
Seeing this place so very dead and realizing the PBF subforum mod had given his/her/its last display of life functions only about three years ago (what is it compared to eternity?), there is a question I would like to ask:

Are you guys all so super hyped for Jupiter Hell that nobody plays any other games anymore, PBF included?

If negative, would anyone be up to anything, given the chance?

That was... slightly underwhelming, to be honest. But then, I suppose the Random Number God was quite gentle unto me.

 29 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 24 of those were killed.
 1 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 2 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 2 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 2 killed the bitch and survived.

A few afterthoughts I'd like to share:
+ Having a Trigun and an invulnerability globe on turns alt-reload into a "skip level" button. Satisfying, especially with a Cyberdemon in sight when you descend. I really liked that, especially by the end, when I was slowly growing tired.
+ What I didn't really like was the way the game turned into "spot the Arch-Vile" past level 50. It felt slightly grindy, too - though the thrill of "there could be unique goodies" was enough to keep me pressing forward. Overall, the challenge was fun, but I feel I won't be doing another one anytime soon. Need a bit of R&R.
+ I got a sniper mod pack early - decided to slap it on a plasma rifle just for kicks, since I was going for a shotgun run. Smartlinked plasma cooker turned out to be an excellent backup weapon, really helpful with these "spot the V" minigames. Not to mention notions like running out of ammo for boomsticks.
+ Malek's Armor a.k.a. Malek's Training Wheels. Gotten early, probably taken off once to see what Plasma Shield did. It sustained hideous amounts of damage throughout the whole game and significantly helped me with, well, not being dead. The game turned out to be a real piece of cake, not having to worry about collecting bits of armor. Thanks for lending me your shirt, man.
+ Another set of training wheels, just in case I managed to fall over anyway - Enviroboots. Afterwards it was just waiting for certain levels to flood completely with lava, then move on. And another layer of micromanagement off - who needs envirosuits, boots or all that crap, when you can have more thermonukes?
+ Lovely, lovely chainsword, my poor man's Dragonslayer. Why doesn't it make that satisfying chainsaw buzz, instead torturing my ears with that wet sponge punching sound? Or did I miss the power switch?

(Replaced it with the Butcher's Cleaver later on and deeper into the base.  It's fun to be a blademaster even though you aren't, though wielding any other weapon with this armor on felt just wrong.)

Overall, good to be back.
