See, that's back from 2008, I wasn't going to zombify it. I understand, I just put it there in case anyone who hadn't seen it before felt like reading it. And I thought everyone had given up on Duke Nukem Forever long ago. I mean, it's been well over ten years since the development supposedly began...

-Batman: Arkham Asylum
-Duke Nukem 3D

And just in case you're interested in reading it, I've made a past topic that was similar to this?http://www.pfhorums.com/viewtopic.php?t=3766

yeah, psilons are probably the best because of their technology bonus. I prefer the humans because well, because I root for my own kind. The 2nd moo is a bit more complex in terms of its gameplay. Are you playing it through dosbox? If so, check your dosbox settings. I played both versions on the ma...

I started playing the first MOO several months ago, and it's actually become one of my favorite games now. I prefer playing with Psilons. I've also played the second, but it for some reason has the tendency to crash within the first ten minutes of gameplay.

Maybe it would work out better to separate the factions based on their race instead of their allegiance in the games, as Master of Orion is more about development and technology-management rather than troop-to-troop combat.

I wouldn't really call the linked video a "review," as it is more of a play through of the first level with some commentary by a new player. And his statement about Bungie and id software ripping off of each other's games was done in a very sarcastic manner, and I don't think that should really be t...

Just go to source.bungie.org/get, download the A1 that corresponds with your operating system, and replace your old A1 files with it. The one you download from there is _always_ the latest version.

It's kind of annoying, though, when you are somewhere where you cannot kill the monsters shooting at you, and so you speed through the terminal to teleport out of the level and never get to know what it says. True, true. I remember the first time I beat M2's last level, I just went to the final ter...

With the original Marathon 1, the game would pause whenever you log onto a terminal. I always preferred the M2 and beyond method of having to clear out a room before being able to read the terminal within it.

Yes, Marathon.org breathed its last breath quite some time ago. Its demise was likely due to the love for it degenerating, as it hadn't had any updates for years. However, at least there's, of course, still marathon.bungie.org.

Very good analysis of the levels so far, Ryoko! Since I'm a lot more familiar with Infinity's levels than Rubicon's, I think I will enjoy following this commentary even more.

I think I may have to agree with gmanyo on Evil. I mean, the devlins did startle me at first, but I quickly became quite used to them. I stopped playing on the level "All Dressed Up And No Place To Go." But I suppose I should try and get back into the game at some point.

I prefer Eternal much more because of its excellent story, music, and tone that is carried from the original trilogy; there's more of a feeling of depth.

In the original M1, you had to start and stop the platforms when they were at exactly the right height, which apparently was extremely annoying for some.

"Come and Take Your Medicine" and "Son of Grendel" were two of my favorite levels from the trilogy.
