I am a little brother. My brother and I(roughly 10 or 11 years ago) get copies of blue and red version from a pawn shop. We both start our games at the same time. Skip ahead to choosing starter, we choose our starters without telling the other which one for balancing purposes. He picks Charmander, and I chose Squirtle. Skip ahead to Pewter city, we whip out our link cable. We fight, I lose to his Charmander, I get mad. He tells me that I suck at video games. I power train my pokemon 'til I get to Celedon city. Next day we fight, I wreck his team. I... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
she always, always hated fighting. i think i turned her off of games by being too competitive when we were kids. she'd be proud of a high score then i'd beat it easily and tease her instead of encouraging her. i honestly regret that a lot, since she had great potential to be really good at games. (she was always clever and clutch; there was a time when she was better at tetris than i was despite me playing more often, for example.)

Literally how the fuck are you supposed to get good at this game?
I have literally 5 scouts facing the same fucking direction, all set on auto fire, and NONE OF THEM perform a reaction shot on a fucking alien that pops out, staring right at them, all while having 60+ reactions.
what a load of fucking horseshit. please tell me this game gets better.
0. openxcom 1. break line-of-sight and get behind a wall if you can, or drop a primed smoke grenade 2. aimed shots should be used, no auto shots unless you're at or above 100 firing accuracy 3. if you find your first mission with cyberdiscs just abort the mission with all soldiers inside
protip about reactions: 1. Autoshot isn't used, SNAPSHOT is. 2. Current TU divided by Maximum TU, and that number is then multiplied by (reactions / 100). That's your actual chance to reaction fire.
67/80 TU = 0.83 70 reactions / 100 = 0.7 0.83*0.7... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I just beat Equinox for super nintendo. It took me like 2 months. It is an isometric action adventure game with 8 dungeons. It is ridiculously hard. The puzzles use confusing perspective, pushing blocks, exploding blocks, levitating blocks that only levitate after you have been on them after like 20 seconds, blocks that begin to fall as soon as you jump on them, floor that pushes you in different direction, blocks that move piled over blocks that dont move, blocks that move piled over blocks that move piled over blocks that move, invisible doors, spikes, pushing blocks...

I bought Doom on Steam and it's cool and all but I have a really hard time with the controls. I'm using the default with WASD is U/D/L/R and the left and right arrow keys to turn. Shift is run and Ctrl is shoot, and that's a real problem for me because with WASD I can't shoot with my left hand, and it's hard to touch right Ctrl and maintain accuracy while turning with the arrow keys.
So how can I remap shoot to another button? Preferrably the Up arrow. With Steam I don't see how to do this since you click play and it launches right into the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Play it with a source port, like GZDOOM, or Zandronum zandronum.com http://devbuilds.drdteam.org/gzdoom/ Just put the DOOM.WAD file from your steam version folder and put it in the same folder as the source port you're using
I'm going to assume you meant chapter, not level (map)
It stays about the same, give it another chapter.
It had lots of very fun set pieces and was the first a lot of players had to experience them. Running up to an artillery piece or heavy machine gun and actually being able to use it. Seeing a vent and actually being able to crawl inside it.
Mod community was also huge. Several modern full fledged companies got their start modding HL. When you were done playing the game, there was a bunch of extra levels available on PC Gamer CDs or off the internet,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The reason it was so famous is because it looked great and played unlike what had been typical for FPSes since Doom. I remember the level of graphical realism adding a lot to the fun of the weapons, combat and especially level exploration.
With a limited palette, pink and cyan isn't the worst combination for readability/contrast. How well it would work with complex graphics in games for one and a half neckbeard to play wasn't even an afterthought, that was back when computers were first of all work machines.
>>2805562 My first UIltima was 7 so it was hard for me to get into previous ones and the later ones sucked. I wish it was remade with better interface (namely inventory) and combat but it's still very good, I'm still amazed at the amount of detail it has and how npc's behave
>>2805616 I've never played any of the spinoffs but I heard the GameBoy ones were good.
>>2805649 The first three and 6 have some pretty bad interfaces which is going to prolong my playthrough, but 4, 5, 7, and 7pt2 were well and good. I'm dreading getting to 8 and 9, considering I've never finished them the first time around.
>>2805507 >aside from having 100% compatibility most of them are pretty close honestly. Genesis flashcart can't play 3 games(?), unless you get the expensive one. Beggar Prince, Pier Solar, and Virtua Racing. NES one has pretty high compatibility, just doesn't work on a few koei strat games that are also on different consoles. PC engine has every game except SF2 SD2SNES has a good list except a good 8 or so games that they are trying to program.
Also not a flashcart... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
