I noticed this some time ago but I'm still curious: why the change in the look of the title?

I feel like jugger battles are pretty much worthless in terms of gameplay, they're just gigantic ammo sinks 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 ...

Is this a case of game developers not giving enough credit to gamers these days, or simply a necessity resulting from games becoming more and more complicated? Games get easier every generation. Look where they started. Back in the day, games were hard as hell. That's because the only way to make t...

This question has been answered already but I think this is an excellent visual (with SPOILERS):

I just had a thought, after remembering one of your other posts. If a Marathon film is saved as a series of keystrokes, wouldn't this include the key to save a screenshot? If so, instead of making us download MEGABYTES of pictures you could just upload the tiny film file and have people generate th...

Ok let us be reasonable. Pfhor are not insects and pfhor are not humans. They are what they are. If we look at the pfhor species as a whole many of them are human like, but there are also other qualities to them, qualities I refer to as insect-like. Pfhor are found in eggs as we see in M1. The alie...

Everything's looking great except for differential shading. It's looking a bit flat. I can also see you're trying for some realistic lighting effects, but that's a slippery slope with this engine. It can sometimes be done and look good, but only if it's done just right. I think the best solution giv...

It surprises me that some of this is being debated. We know for a fact that the Pfhor have skeletons. And it's clear they have skin. If there is chitin, it's under the skin. As for what Tycho or Durandal say, don't always take them literally. Both of them have a sense of humor and take literary libe...

Personally, I don't trust the typo in skraeling's quote.
Then you must not trust the typo in the game either.

Dreamers with nothing substantial to show is a recurring topic. Old timers burning/guiding them is also recurring, and pretty much everything they have to say is just a repeat of what they've already said in simliar topics. There would be a lot less redundancy on the pfhorums if the old timers just ...

Incidentally, it is by far the hardest M2 map to complete fists-only on TC. 27 other maps, and not one of them comes close.

There's the mariusnet widget, that lets you see if there's people playing without needing to launch the game. It's for Mac, don't know if there's anything like it for Windows or Linux. If everyone does that, then it will seem like no one is playing! That makes sense... but it is what I do. Or did, ...
