Re: POLL: Current state of Marathon and the community

I haven't been mean to you. Also, in the short time I've been in this community, I've learned that you should just treat all insults (or at least iron/wrk/patrick's) as a joke.

Re: marathon.txt

I doubt Alpha knows what "doxx" means. Of course I don't know what that means, I don''t speak newspeak . How so? I'm not seeing anything useful out of this besides wasted time. "My strong strait forward personality is very similar to Linus Torvalds's personality." "PC gamers are arrogant fat ass lo...

Ok! Calm down man! I didn't mean to piss you off. I get your point with overkilling the number of categories. I get it. I understand. Just forget I mentioned it.

Re: Possibility of a Marathon Speedrun

I don't think that's entirely true. Here's a vid of me speeding through the first couple levels on normal difficulty. I know it's not vidmaster quality, but hey it's something.

Re: Possibility of a Marathon Speedrun

Any reason why you chose kindergarden? Playing the first several levels on normal difficulty is relatively easy (total carnage is a different story).

Re: What is the DS_STORE

I never owned a Mac. I played Marathon on an Amiga 3000 (68060) via Fusion Emulation to run Mac OS 8.1 back in the day. It was funny as my Amiga (which cost way less) ran the Mac OS better than the Mac hardware. I've never owned a Mac. Technically, you were virtualizing it, not emulating it. Emulat...

Re: What is the DS_STORE

Considering only three out of ten uploads on Simplici7y's first page were mutliplayer maps, yeah, I can safely say this community does do other things. And I didn't even have to Google that. There are some pages of Simplici7y that are completely full of netmaps. If I'm not mistaken, the first page ...

Actually doing a bit of research into it, turns out we were both wrong. The composer for Oni was Michael Salvatori, a close colleague of Marty.

Re: What is the DS_STORE

Not really. Netmaps take hours or days to develop. Mappacks can take weeks or months. So when you " simply " toss that thing off as "worthless" it's a direct insult to the time and effort Ryoko and I put into our respective works (and keep in mind, you yourself have admitted these insults were noth...

Re: A fourth Marathon??

Destiny's original concept was excellent. For those of you that don't know, GameTheorist's video on Destiny reveals exactly that (I'm obligated to give you a spoiler warning about the video for obvious reasons). The problem arouse when Activision, in an attempt to make their mindless CoD fans play D...

Re: A fourth Marathon??

And my point was that, gameplay wise, it was that bad. I know I went on a tangent about story, but the gameplay in Halo 2 is shit. There's little things like getting rid of the health bar in favor of just an energy shield. To be fair, even Marathon does this. Sure it has 3 levels, but it still does...

Re: A fourth Marathon??

Fallout 3, one of the most highly acclaimed American RPGs of all time, and with a massive community of fans both of the original game and of modding it, and a game good enough to get a spinoff game (New Vegas), was a piece of shit? That's not fact, that's just bandwagon. Come on, we learn this shit...

Re: A fourth Marathon??

Honestly I don't think there's any reason Bungie should make another Marathon game. I'd like to see another company, like Machine Games (who made the modern Wolfenstein games), take a shot at it. Their take on Wolf was really remarkable and memorable, they made a fantastic character out of BJ Blazk...
