PC Games / Space Station 13
« on: July 18, 2009, 12:14:30 pm »
You guys should be ashamed of yourself, Space Station 13 has only been mentioned once on this forum! :o

http://www.byond.com/games/hub/Exadv1/SpaceStation13

What is Space Station 13?

Space Station 13, set in space in the future, on board a space station, where disasters continuously occur to the displeasure of the crew. The ability to knock down walls, build new ones, and almost completely reshape the station (with the exception of a few things), is very appealing to strategy/roleplay gamers, and especially appealing to online gamers; due to the game being online-only and round-based.
You could work as a medical doctor, Security Officer (To put those nasty griefers behind bars), Station Engineer, Janitor, Captain, Scientist (These guys can make everything, ranging from flamethrowers to bombs), Geneticist, Chaplain, Head of personel/research/security, Atmospheric technician (Yes people, atmosphere is important in this game and these guys must try to keep the air okay), Detective, A.I., and a LOT more.
Some say this is like Dwarf Fortress in space, because of all the possibilities you have (and the terrible graphics, but I don't think they're that bad)


What is the goal of this game?

There are multiple game modes and coders are adding more and more to the list, but the most used ones are:

-Extended (or RP-mode): In this mode, there is no goal, you just RP and have fun with the fellow crewmen or, more likely, work on keeping the station intact even though griefers are trying to blow the station up.

-Traitor: At the beginning of the round, one player becomes the traitor. The traitor has a goal (For example, kill the Chaplain and escape with the escape shuttle, reprogram the A.I. or whatever). The other players don't know who the traitor is, so it makes for some very interesting situations (It was you, who killed the chaplain!)

- Revolution: Basically like Traitor, only now, the traitor has a brainwash device that brainwashes players into helping him kill the targets.


What makes this game fun?

The coolest thing about this game is the kind of **** that happens every round. In one round, you might have a person secretly murdering people while the others try to figure out who it is. In other rounds, you have the ship blown apart because of bombs placed by a person. Next, you have the A.I. (The A.I. is a player as well) malfunctioning and going on a killing spree, forcing the crew to try and take down the A.I.
There's just so much happening, a round is never the same.
 RPing is also enforced in this game, which is really interesting.



Well, that's it, I suck at writing these things. You really have to try it out yourself in order to know how great this game is.

PC Games / GOG (Good Old Games)
« on: January 21, 2009, 08:05:39 am »
I recently stumbled on a site called GOG where you can buy 'old' games like fallout and stronghold for a reasonable price (between 0 and 6.99, with a rare exception) and enables you to download them, guaranteed to work on XP and Vista and no DRM :D.
I suck at writing long winded stories so to cut it short, just go to the site and look at the games, there are some pretty cool games out there :)

PC Games / Resident evil Cold Blood (half life 1 (steam) mod)
« on: July 05, 2008, 11:32:40 am »
Well, yesterday, I was bored and decided to look for Half life 1 mods and I stumbled across a very interesting mod: Resident Evil: Cold Blood.

Basically, it's resident evil+coop with the half life 1 engine and it's great.
There are a couple of different game modes, but I've only played one of them.

The game is incredibly fun, but there aren't many people online, but usually, there's one or two servers online with a couple of players on, enough to have fun trying to survive an army of zombies. I can't really explain what the game is all about, but it's scary, online and a lot of fun. What more do I have to say?

This mod works ONLY in the STEAM version of Half-Life 1.

Running.

It feels like it's the only thing you've ever done. Run. Ran. Fled.

But who could blame you?

It started with the flu, or some sort of strange cold. That **** doesn't matter now. What matters is the fact that zombies, and strange monsters, and god knows WHAT else are out there. Better yet, they're right behind you.

Kill them? Fat chance. The only gun you've seen in a good amount of time ran out of ammo hours ago, and that rusty old pipe in your hands doesn't look like any zombie killer you've ever seen.

Finally, you see something that looks safe. Its an old Inn, the kind you'd see on the side of the road while driving down an interstate. You seem to have traveled from the city a bit, and the door to the main building is open. As you draw closer, and closer, it shuts!

Suddenly, the entire situation seems ten times worse. From all around, zombies are swarming over you.

You bring the pipe up, and hope for the best. WHAM, one rotting bag of flesh falls to the ground as its skull is cracked, but the rest of them are on you in a heartbeat.

Well, ****, you think. Better luck next time.

Welcome to Resident Evil: Cold Blood

Cold Blood is an online story driven coop mod based in the Resident Evil universe. You'll come across many areas from the games, plus a few original areas you'll have never seen before. Using weapons you thought you'd never use, you'll dispatch dozens of different kinds of monsters from Hunters to Giant Spiders to our favorite deadites, zombies.

Cold Blood is a Half Life 1 mod, and will be available when it's released. And yes, it's been released.

PC Games / Looking for 'evil' games.
« on: July 04, 2008, 06:23:08 am »
Hey all, I was wondering, does anyone know any quality game that allows the player to be evil, like in Fable and Jade Empire for example.
I don't care about the genre, everything that allows me to NOT be the hero that saves the day and saves innocent kittens from nasty trees.

I'm looking for games like these:

Fable
Jade Empire
Star wars: Knights of the old republic
Dungeon keeper
Evil genius
Overlord
Black & White
Stubbs: The rebel zombie without a pulse.
Grand Theft Auto
Dark Eden
Destroy All Humans
Fallout.

Also, a game where I could be a demon or part of the undead would be great.

Games I'm going to try:

Baldurs gate
Arcanum


Edit 1: Added GTA, forgot about that game :P
Edit 2: Dark Eden
Edit 3: Forgot about Destroy All Humans. Also added Fallout.

I've been using the creature creature trial for about 4-5 days now and there've been a couple of creatures that I kinda liked and there will probaly be more with each passing day, as I'm finally starting to get the feeling, despite only having 24% of the parts :P
By the way, comments would be appreciated, I'll add them to my creature notes.

Well, I'll start with my favorite: The comabull



Although small, this creature is a serious threat. With its middle horn, it pierces its prey, killing it and eating it. Its bigger horns are mostly used for defence and for impressing females.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwRuVgxOekU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwRuVgxOekU</a>

Notes: This was my first 'detailed' creature, my third creature I've made anyway.

The Faloopa:


This strange creature was dropped by the holy visitors. The reason however, was unknown, as these creatures don't seem too aggresive.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFKwZgpqjF4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFKwZgpqjF4</a>

Notes: My first attempt to create a creature for a planet other then the green one and also my first  creature that could be sentient I'm satisfied with.

Nice design. Looks like some sort of space anteater.

Capt-Casper commented:Sun August 10, 2008
good job

Rubric commented:Sat June 28, 2008
I like this guy. The stooped posture makes him look friendly and passive.



Snappie:


Lurking in the dark, this creature stalks it's prey until it is alone. At that moment, this creature charges at his prey, slowing it down and finishing it with its mouths.

Notes: This creature was basically a test to see how multiple mouths sounded. I liked the result so I made up a story around it and uploaded it.

cool, he has heads for hands :D

The Barimo:


The Barimo is a packhunter, plain and simple. It works with others of the same species to kill medium-large sized creatures. There have even been reports that this creature uses tools.

Notes: I made this creature the way I would most likely have my first creature in the full spore game.

Gizmo:


These cheeky creatures are incredibly curious towards everything that moves. Not very agressive, although its bites can still hurt.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1vX0_vxpp4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1vX0_vxpp4</a>

Notes: One of my most simple work, yet one of my most populair one as well :P

You have some great creations. You should check out http://sagan4.com/ and make some here.

Yosoff commented:Wed August 6, 2008
Cool creature! Thumbs up.

vonboy commented:Mon July 28, 2008
simple yet nice.


Slaughtosaurus:


Despite it's size, this creature will most likely be the last thing you'll see before you die.

Notes: Basically, I tried to make the ultimate predator in terms of damage dealing. Only problem is, I forgot to made him big :(

Comments: -

Mobassian:


The Mobassian is a creature that lives on the vulcanic planet of Mobassa. They tend to hunt in packs, but shouldn't be underestimated when a single Mobassian has it's eyes set on you.

Notes: I'm pretty satisfied with this creature, although I'm hoping that if you encounter it, it will be on a vulcanic'ish' planet. I wouldn't like seeing it walking in a bright green valley :P

Comments: -

Miniopolis:


These small and harmless creatures tend to clean the land of carcassess. However, when in huge numbers, these creatures do pose a threat when threatened.

Notes: I made these creatures to fill in the lower tier creatures. I wouldn't call them fodder as they are carnivores (I only have the trial CC so...:()
Also, anyone who's been following spore for a while will recognise this critter :P

Comments:
"ha, very cute and simple. Nice one"

ps: Vids to come.

Spore: General / Spore item/part highlights (Warning, image alert)
« on: February 17, 2008, 04:01:27 am »
Hi all,
I've always tried to read what certain descriptions and names were from different parts in vids. From now on, I'm trying to save the names and all from the parts we can 'see' in vids, but can't read because of the speed and all. I'm trying to get editor-only content and am trying to keep the pics as small as possible. Anyway, the first vid I used was the Kotaku Creature Creation Video.

Pick your editor:















Details:





























Eyes & Sensors:



Arms & Legs:





Hands & feet (?):



Weapons:















Mouths:

Spore: General / Question about a certain quote.
« on: November 08, 2007, 11:20:46 am »
There's a certain quote coming from a preview:

Quote
When you're editing anything in the game, you're given free reign over the structure. The initial plan of just dragging out shapes and forming bodies has been tempered slightly: now there are anchor points to pull around, which is how, following Patrick's creature's swift evolution from purple blob to many footed land-crawler, we ended up with knees at an acute angle three feet behind the body and a tail somewhere near
the forehead.

Don't tell me the anchor points are true, that would suck big time.
