[quote=""RyokoTK""]Callback[/quote] I did notice that. I haven't played these maps. Do you have to kill them to proceed? I've always seen Juggernauts as enemies to avoid rather than kill. Seems in most situations there's a choice between evasion and dumping ammo to put an end to the evasion. Depends...

Fun, as usual. Terminals seem more polished/interesting this time around, maybe I was just too busy shooting at things to notice in Phoenix. On a different note (probably been stated before, but fuck it): I feel like jugger battles are pretty much worthless in terms of gameplay, they're just giganti...

Maybe nobody writes manuals anymore. If you read the Marathon manual, it interweaves practical information like how to throw switches, or what powerups do, with story-enriching, entertaining writing. Games of that era had manuals I could sit down and read cover to cover. Now, what do you get? If yo...

Saw Purity Ring last night. They were really good, and their openers, Headaches and Evian Christ, were good too. Evian Christ might've been better than Purity Ring actually, but Purity Ring had more stage presence and better lighting and shit like that. I was right up next to the stage; the chick f...

UPDATE: Went to Purity Ring last night. Absolutely friggin' awesome. Evian Christ and Headaches opened for them, both of whom are great, although Evian Christ's sampler shat out near the end of his set and he had to end early. Purity Ring was one of if not the coolest show I've been to. EDIT: Also ...

Well, my knowledge of the Halo universe is pretty outdated (I only played the first two games on PC) so any help is appreaciated. Wouldn't worry about it, you pretty much already know the gist of the canon stuff. The canon novels are utter tripe, so you're fairly free to mess with it as you wish. P...

Same! They're coming here in September, and on a night when I don't have any morning classes the next day. I haven't had a chance to listen to all of their album yet, but I've been following the singles from it since around Lofticries. Shrines is one of the best albums this year. Also, turntable.fm...

Squadron and RtM are on the old fileball FTP, Apothesis might be as well. I know for certain CatHunter linked to it here also.

For more miscellany, there's also the semi-working Wine port of Trojan and EMR, which isn't even in the Marathon universe.

-snip- Each scenario has it's own strengths and weaknesses. Marathon Phoenix by far has the best gameplay, it's pretty much non-stop action, and very challenging on Total Carnage. Not much switch hunting, objectives are fairly linear and clear without being overly direct or holding your hand for th...

If you care to, you can emulate OS9 with Sheepshaver or Basilisk II. Just played through a fair amount of PiD and a couple of nostalgic games on OS 10.7

If you mean weapon in hand sprites, what we have is what we're gonna get. To be fair, many of them were rendered in 3D and then exported into frames for the sprites.

Not shabby. Might need some tweaking for difficulty reasons (namely, it's pretty easy to cheap out by using the 2x regen.). Only other thing to note is that you might consider some tweaking as far as how you deliver monsters onto the field - those small doors bottleneck them really easily, making it...

Alrighty, I've done my map. And the polygon count is... exactly 100! Somebody test this out and tell me if it's KTA worthy. That was... okay? I'm sort of ambivalent. It felt really cramped, much more than usual KTA fare. Mostly because you relied a lot on sharp turns and way too much scenery. That ...

Well there aren't any ways to cheese the fights, really, but there's always plenty of space to just circle-strafe around everyone, which is usually enough.
