  • shambler

    Ok much debate has come out of whether the Shambler is a wooly beast or a muscular hulk?

    if u look at the fiend skin,
    the shambler
    it appears to me that the dark areas are skin over bones so to me actually looks like the shambler is some kinda hornless white rhino with major claws!
    Maybe originally the shambler was gonna be like a MEGA fiend....

      I agree with you. The Shambler is a hairy/furry powerhouse.

        I voted "furry" just because I want it to be furry.

        But it's not, it's a naked, fleshy, genitalia-less monster. I know this because I'm psychic, and I'm psychic because I'm psychic.

        Which is all the evidence psychics typically give...
        ....I should start a poll on how many people believe I'm psychic...

            ...I should start a poll on how many people believe I'm psychic...
            Right before I read this line I was thinking "He should make a poll". So, either you psychically knew I would think that or I psychically knew you would write it.

            ...I know right
            ...Hah
            ...Under the sofa

            There I just psychically answered the next 3 things you will think after reading this. If I'm right, then it's me that is the psychic.

            -shambler is covered in pixels is what I always thought.

              Well, the Shambler is supposed to have a shaggy coat according to John Romero. I never understood why people started making him with just skin. I always thought of the Shambler as a vicious alternate version of the Abominable Snow Monster!

                Can a psychic person do well in mathematics?

                  if he's a abominable snowman rip off, why are there no winter quake maps? isnt it odd a yeti-like creature would be found in a HELL-LIKE dimension , with lava?

                      well, to simplify, why would he have fur? it would be much cooler (temp wise) to have skin so he doesn't burn up.

                        At this point in my life.... I'm quite certain I am not this man's bitch. Therefore everything he says is a lie.

                        I Am Not a Bitch * Diakatana + John Romero's lies = Shambler isn't fluffly

                          Well he has shaggy coat, because it was id Software's intent. Enough said. I think we all saw enough bare skinned monsters following up the release of Quake anyways.

                            Plus, you can't explain Quake. If you find it odd for a yeti-like creature to be in a hellish environment with lava..well consider the game itself! A lot of things don't quite make sense in Quake and that is what makes it intriguing to this day. There is no official storyline to really explain everything. Hell, we don't even know what outside temperature is. We just know the game is completely awesome.

                              I've never been too sure how the "furry" Shambler fits in to a world of molten lava, bubbling slime pits and so on. There was a novel take on this which you could see in a fairly detailed piccy on here some time ago that had a Fleshy, rather than furry, Shambler where you can almost make out every sinew. I'm not saying one is better than the other but it looked really interesting IMHO. I'm not sure if the following was the exact piccy as it seems a little too "shiny" compared to the one I was thinking of but you get the idea...


                              I also spotted this one from my good friend Seven which although it has some fur, it doesn't have that afro /cousin it / spent 20 mins in the tumble dryer / Slash from GNR look ...


                              Food for thought maybe

                              Kind regards (...and a very happy new year to you all)
