      Play style: "Run screaming like a girl axe murderer"

      I've been playing Quake106 since the beginning. Single player only. I never played DM because of Win98's infamous blue-screen networking fail and because I never met anyone else around here willing to spend $1500 for a decent gaming computer. I'm retired now and have too much time on my hands so I thought I'd see if I can handle live opponents.

      Still have my Doom2 collection but I'm old and my eyes can't tolerate the 320x200 graphics anymore. I tried Q4 and hated it. Without Trent Reznor's music I was just a rat in a maze. Played through it 3 times and threw it away. I just got Wolfenstein 2009 but haven't played it yet. The intro looks good but I don't much like joypads. If I decide I like Quake DM maybe I'll quit playing other games.

      • Joypads? Why couldn't you play Wolfenstein with keyboard + mouse?

        • I plan to try but the learning curve looks steep. Does anyone know if it's worth the effort?

          Edit: I couldn't find an active Wolfenstein community. Wiki says it has a 74% approval rating and described it as "engaging but otherwise forgettable". I'll probably play through a few times to see if I like it. I'm glad I only paid 75₵ for it.

            They have this thing now called "Brutal Doom". It makes the original Dooms even more awesomer.



            They also have a mod for Doom3 that lets you pretend it's Doom1. I wasn't a big fan of Doom3 and it's been sitting on the shelf unused for many years. This might be the one thing that would convince me to dust it off and load it up again.

            • That looks good. And the Master Levels for Doom2 has 3000+ bonus levels I haven't played yet.

                I remember way back in the day that I bought a copy of some kinda "3000 add-on levels for Duke Nukem 3D".

                Just did some googling... I think I had a few different expansions for Duke3D. I had this one, Duke it Out in D.C., and it was actually a single player add-on.

                Another one I know I had was the Duke!ZONE pack. I think I bought it at a Target, and I remember seeing it being sold at pretty much every PC game retailer everywhere. It was garbage though, a total rip-off. Basically they downloaded a bunch of shit from the web, stuck it on a CD, and sold it in stores. All of the levels were multiplayer levels, reeeeeally bad ones too, piss-poorly designed, and there were no single player levels at all.

                I also remember seeing that Doom Master Levels pack in stores back then. I didn't buy it because it was kinda like the DukeZone pack. Although... I think the Master Levels pack might have contained a handful of official single player levels.

                • Yes. It has 20 official levels signed by id software which are very good. The rest are "home-brewed". I hope id at least tested them to verify they are playable.

                  Actually, I've downloaded so many maps here I might not have enough time for more. I have all the func_mapjams, retro_jams, AD, Zerstorer, Quoth, and some I haven't played yet. Seems like celephais & func_msgboard produce maps faster than I can play them.
