    Alright, downgrading my bow to a lower tier did my confidence better in archery.

    :shredder: It was a close contest but the one who finished shooting first wins the tiebreaker.
    Show Spoiler

    At first, I thought I should make every hit count with fully drawn powerful bows, but I can never squeeze more than 2 shots before they close in.
    Therefore to compensate, I decided to go for faster shots and poisoned tips. And probably find a small stream to slow them down.
    Time to put it into practice as I destroy Cuman camps in Talmberg forest.

    [​IMG]

    It worked well enough. The poison is a guaranteed kill over time if it takes effect. And if that fails, I have poisoned my blades as well.

    Thanks for the loot.

    This one has a different structure than the first game. Arena has a time limit and you also lose 10 minutes for every time you die and continue beyond 2.
    [​IMG]

    You can also play as different characters.
    [​IMG]

    It's randomized, you face a few different competitors and traps until you reach a fight vs either two giants apes or a t-rex.

    Then there is this boss, and you can't continue and retry the fight if you lose to him.
    [​IMG]

    You can still play if you lose that fight, escape from the dungeon, rematch the boss in a different place, then beat the wizard

    Hardest fight in the game, by far.

    To see the ending you have to beat the mid-boss on your first try and then save this guy from the dungeon before fighting the wizard

    Playing the original doom via ChocolateDoom which basically is the bug-for-bug compatible way to play them on a modern machine.

    First time since I was a kid. I have mouselook on and still managed to die a couple of times going halfway through the first episode (ie "Knee Dead in Dead" - what was included in shareware doom, near 100% Romero's work). I played doom quite a bit as a kid but a few years after it came out via Doom95. Got a feeling I only ever played the first episode, certainly wouldn't have played the fourth episode that was included in Final Doom.

    I'm sort of surprised to say that levels still stand up - and probably are better than those in many month shooters. I read Masters of Doom a few months ago. You can definitely see the nintendo influence on id: E1M4 could be a Zelda level.

    Replayed Quake 2.

    Back in 2005 or 2006 when i played it for the first time (coming off from Half-Life, RTCW and such) i was like "wtf is that, i thought ID supposed to be all-time great grandmasters of FPS genre, why does their game feel like boring crap". Since then i played and loved original Quake, and after reading about Q2 here i decided to give it another shot.

    Welp, it's still boring. And easy. I should've probably picked Hard+.

    As a big fan of Chrono Trigger, I tried several times to get into Chrono Cross. It might be a good game on its own, but man it's shit compared to CT.

    It's fine. The main problem is the lack of character development. Bland. Boring. Generic.

    Wouldn't really change all that much.

    Oh well, it does have two interesting weapons (CG and HB) and I guess Strogg base texture work is nice if monotonous.

    Other than that it has been shat on by pretty much every major FPS since and quite a few prior.
    So that's how you have unfiltered textures and coloured lighting.

    Well that's what happens when you try to shoehorn 100 different characters into a game. That wasn't the only issue for me though. I found the combat boring as well.

    Rockman Zero. A half baked idea with some terrible design choices.

    [​IMG]

    The short version is that after X6, they realize that zero was HIV positive (Zigma virus) so they quarantine the fuck out of him and a lot of shit happens.
    Some bimbo named Ciel wakes you up cause the future is some Orwellian dystopian shithole run by X.

    Basically a lot of plot-heavy shit that's impossible to cover. Instead here's the audio drama

    yeah, fuck the angel form. I hate Z1. I can't believe how my brain blocked all those painful memories of how shit this game was. Storywise? yeah, it's good.


    Edit:

    Megaman zero II is a massive improvement over the first one. No longer you have to extra grind for upgrades. It's more polished and fun.

    The conclusion of the retarded front attack against Neo-Arcadia planned by glorious reploid leader of the resistance.

    TLDR; The three guardians fuck them up real hard.

    To be concluded!


    Still... X4 is, in my opinion, peak Megaman x / zero.
