Discussion / An old fan...
« on: April 15, 2008, 09:40 »
Hey all, I kind of forgot about this game for about a year, and I just decided to give this great game another try, and was I impressed by the changes!  I especially liked how the computer maps are useful now!  And besides that, I noticed tweaks to the monsters and weapons which I greatly appreciate!  Bravo!

I did WAY better on this than I thought I would; in fact, this is the farthest I have gotten in this release so far!  Who'da thunk it?  By the way, Dualweilding with an advanced pistis is sweet; it's almost like having a miniature double shotgun! (Of course, I'd still prefer the shotgun...)

Discussion / Wolf RL?
« on: September 09, 2006, 15:56 »
That's right, Wolfenstein RL.

I know I'll probably never see it, and I'm not sure why I'm so gun-ho about it, since it's essentially a dumbed-down version of Doom RL, but I still want it.  Perhaps if one of us could get our hands on the Doom RL source code (wink wink, nudge nudge) this could happen.

What I see would make this different from Doom is there would be more stealth and conservation of ammo (there is only one type of ammo here!)  Does anyone remember the really, really old version of Wolfenstein, before it was 3D?  You had limited ammo and a few grenades, so you had to use your wits.  I guess what I want to see is the original Wolfenstain plus the features and enemies implemented by Wolfenstain 3D.

This is what I see as far as enemies:

Guard: Your average Former Human.  I remember from the game he went down with a single bullet -- That's my kind of enemy!

SS Troop: The Former Human Sergeant or Captain with a sub-machine gun.  A bit more health.

Dog: Basically an itty-bitty demon.  Isn't it cute?  Also goes down with a bullet.

Mutant: Two pistols, fast firing rate; my childhood memories of these guys were painful.

Bosses: Remember the big beefy guys with grappling guns for hands?  They could easily replace Hell Knights and Barons.  Only every couple levels, mind!

I'm sure there were more.  I think there might have been ninjas for some reason, as well as Hitler-ghosts and the Fueher himelf in his little robot suit!

In Wolf 3D, there were only three guns and a knife, as well as only one type of ammo.  The origianl non-3d Wolf had grenades as well.  Like I said before, maybe this one would rely a bit more on strategy than running in guns-a-blazing, since Guards and Dogs both easily fell to a single bullet each.

Anywho, I'm starting to ramble, so I'll throw this topicopen for discussion.  I know I probably won't see this happen, at least not here, but tell me what you think!

Discussion / Official Doom Extreme Haiku Challenge
« on: August 26, 2006, 03:57 »
In the pirit of livening up the discussion boards and wasting time, I present the Official Doom Extreme Haiku Challenge!  Try to come up with the best Doom related Haikus!

For those unfamiliar with the rules, a Haiku is a three line, non-rhyming poem  of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.
I'll go first:

BFG9K,
Slices, dices, toasts and frags,
All things in its path

 He started his journey on the suface of Phobos.
 There finally he was killed by a former human.

I got 43 points!  Can anyone else do better-- I mean, worse?
And if anyone thinks this was a complete waste of time, that's what video games are for!

Requests For Features / Playing as a demon
« on: June 24, 2006, 02:41 »
Hey everyone.  Here's an idea.  What if as a bonus for beating the game at a certain difficulty level, the game unlocks a special level where you play as one of the demons?  For instance you could play as an Arch-Vile, killing humans and resurrecting them as your own minions?  Maybe the higher score or difficulty you beat the game in, the stronger demon you get to play?

I beat the Cyberdemon by collecting 4 plasma rifles and overcharging them all, then I finished him off with two busts of ye olde BFG.  In the battle I used a large medkit and a phase device.

Wow, what a rush, I didn't expect to beat him on my first encounter with him!
