    Yep! It makes for some cool screenshots, but it does cost a few frames.

    And I just found this lone, grizzled Imperial soldier standing stoically in the middle of nowhere. I thought to myself, this guy has a story.

    Dashui, those pics are great, but I really like those with the Imperial soldier. The one with you behind him, as he gives those mountains the thousand yard stare, sends chills down my spine.

    Duke Nukem 3d time. Whoever said earlier that DooM looks better was right, I think, but Duke wins in terms of character, hands down.

    duke0004.jpg
    When you use the "quick kick" hotkey it says "MIGHTY FOOD ENGAGED" which is quite endearing.

    duke0006.jpg
    Evil cat aliens are in our prison showers. DUKE IS THE MAN FOR THE JOB.

    duke0001.jpg
    If you squish an enemy under a door, this little stringy thing of alien goo sticks around.

    duke0014.jpg
    This is a character from Rise of the Triad or something. Can't really remember.

    duke0007e.jpg
    Remember those showers? This lightswitch turns the light in that room on and off. That's more interactivity than most first person shooters that are released these days. Can you turn the lights off in Half-Life 2 or Halo 3? No.

    duke0008.jpg
    The face of innovation: when you use a keycard Duke actually uses the keycard.

    duke0010.jpg
    Dunno what I was going for with this screenshot.

    duke0011.jpg
    A prisoner (all the prisoners are aliens for some reason, you'd think that having just invaded Earth they'd be keeping some humans or whatever) has a poster of a sexy lady!

    duke0012.jpg
    But really the poster is just hiding a hole, Shawshank Redemption style. Down at the bottom of this cave I found some pipebombs!

    duke0013.jpg
    A pointless map of the prison complex.

    So really I just posted 10 screenshots and at most 2 of them are of combat, and I think part of that is because Duke Nukem 3d has so much fun interactive stuff that it's hard not to get hung up on pressing buttons and flipping switches and stuff. Unfortunately screenshots can't capture the magic of Duke's voice. "Hail to the king, baby!" doesn't come through in pixels.

  • AsheAshe Registered User regular
    Haha, great stuff. I can remember being utterly amazed the first time I came across the pool table and realised I could actually move the balls around. Also, I never did find the final secret area on the very first level despite trying to for ages... I'm gonna have to Google that now.

    I bet killing him would allow you to get one of the dungeon words in the shout chain "Diah Bee Tus".

    I hear that it's not that good of a shout though. From what I heard tier 3 makes your feet fall off if you use it too much.

    Haha this needs to be a mod. Using the shout spews out a powerful stream of sugar rolls, knocking the enemy for a six.

    More Duke 3d:

    duke0015.jpg
    This is the submarine I will use to escape the prison. What is a submarine doing here? I don't know.

    duke0018.jpg
    The sub takes me to some sort of... place... which does stuff. See that claw? It picks up barrels. Or...

    duke0017.jpg
    It picks up Duke! This is where Half-Life 2 got the idea for that ride in the end part of the game, probably. This factory also has a layout suspiciously similar to a factory-esque part of Xen from the original Half-Life.

    duke0020.jpg
    Two other little touches that Duke does better than most contemporary games: sometimes when you kill an enemy, they take a little while to die (although you can finish them off), and if you step in blood, you leave some footprints.

    duke0021.jpg
    Hmm, what does this device do?

    duke0019.jpg
    Oh, it shrinks me down until I'm 4 inches tall so I can explore hidden places. If you run into an enemy while you're shrunk, they try to step on you. If they do, you're instantly crushed.

    duke0022.jpg
    "What did you do in Duke Nukem 3d?" "Oh, you know just your average stuff, like fighting floating levitating octabrains underwater with a shotgun while dodging nautical mines and keeping an eye on my scuba equipment..."

    duke0025.jpg
    "...then I fought some jetpack-equipped cat aliens in a ravine..."

    duke0026.jpg
    When you read this sign, an earthquake happens, half the level collapses, and Duke says "holy shit!"

    duke0027j.jpg
    Why is a nearly naked lady dancing around a fire in the San Andreas fault? BECAUSE DUKE NUKEM.

    I definately agree too.

    But multiplayer FPS is something I considedr as seperate so I feel comfortable saying BF3 is on par with Final Doom (my REAL favourite old-school fps) in terms of pure fun.

    I think after that golden age came some of the worst single player fps ever made. Blood 2, Sin, Unreal, anything that came out in that era up until Half-Life kind of sucked.

    This does not include the Thief games, because I don't consider those to be shooters.

    You shut your goddamn filthy mouth.

    Unreal is one of the big FPS series out there. The Tournament series in particular is legendary amongst many gamers, especially tournament types. With the exception of the last one, that is. 2004 is also right up there as one my most played games ever. The second to the last tournament game also has AI that stands up to todays AI, and will gleefully kill you if you screw around with it.

    Of course, then they looked at everything the last few games did right, stripped the features out of them, then made bland, boring, "grey is the new real" maps in the newest one instead of maps like that giant tree map you could fight in. Or a death world where everyone goes insane in 24 hours because of solar radiation. Or the arctic factory assault map. Or the giant robot factory. Or convoy, which i've not seen replicated ever in any FPS of that scale.



    Or the Skaarj Assault map. Which was basically what happens when Unreal impacts violently with the Death Star scene. It even had you fight the enemy in space first in space interceptors and bombers (Letting the defenders pilot turrets, too.) before you could board the Skaarjstar to try and blow it up from within.


    And then there's maps like this, which were fan made/extras that were in later editions of the game, and are utterly hilarious:
    (Video because you can't show it off really, with just screenshots due to the nature of the map.)



    You don't see games like that anymore. It's all "modern warfare grim gritty realism, die in a few hits" affairs nowadays. :(


    On a more related note, the X series came out with an expansion to Terran Conflict. It adds in hard-coded warfare, which mods can then amp up and give more depth too, amongst other things.

    Took some screenshots of a few fleet battles with XRM and Improved Races enabled in their alpha state for Albion Prelude. The results were pretty amazing, though they'd probably fry a lesser CPU.

    The screenshots with what appears to be a sector map overlaid over the image is showing just how many ships are fighting in my immediate area. Often I can't even get the list of them all on one or two pages. The screenshots in question detail a major Terran offensive to push out past the chokepoint set up by the Argon Federation, out past Circle of Labour. Which is the only route to and out of Terran space in-game unless you have a jump drive and a lot of balls.

    None of the screenshots were generated by a "story" either, the game just built the ships and decided to go wreck another empires space and take it over on its own.

    I said single player fps. It was actually a golden age for multiplayer shooters, we had the godfather of classic deathmatch Quake 1, followed shortly after by the pretty damn neat Quake 2. Unreal Tourney as you pointed out came out along with it's superior contemporary Quake 3. There was also weird mod stuff going like Action Quake and Rocket Area. Then towards the ends of the era we got the Counterstrike beta.

    Fair enough. Though i'd argue that Unreal Tournament is a SFPS. You can certainly play it that way with no problems. The AI is smart enough to give you a challenge. Especially on some maps like Skaarj Assault, where if your team isn't fast enough they'll set up choke points in hallways and at that one stair-well and block you for the rest of the match in a meat-grinder.
