    If you/Lewie could set up a meeting (I'm sure they have a twitter acc.) I'd love to do an interview for Savygamer. :)

    Only versions I have at the moment are for my Phone and the original XBLA release.

    I could swear you could do this in Worms 2. Maybe it was just creating "custom" weapons in so far as changing the values of already existing weapons.

    Ah, the days of the Holy Hand Grenade and all-mighty prod.


    Anybody else kamikaze everything? It was a matter of honour.

    Edit: Oh! Oh! Those intro movies. The intro movies! How great were those?

    Ouch - £18? That's the price of most proper retail PC games! The 'pre-order and get extra hats and forts' thing doesn't bode well either - it means DLC is now coming in the form of teeny tiny 2D sprites.

    I'd have guessed the price would have been like half that.

    Will probably still buy it just because it's Worms and there will be loads of active players for a few months.

    The Worms games have consistently had some of best themes of all games.

    But you're all terrible people for not linking the WWP theme.

    It may not have any fancy lyrics, and it may have been from a game that basically identical to Armageddon

    But damn

    Wait, one of the pre-purchase bonuses is 24 hour earlier access to the game? Since everyone gets it, doesn't that just mean that the game is really launching 24 hours earlier than it says?

    The Worms Game used to be Worms: Armageddon for the PC. Nowadays it's whatever has the most player base.


    I remember when there was this program called the Fiddler, where you could basically design your own weapons, like a minigun that shot poison donkeys that rubberbanded across the landscape and exploded into 20 kamikaze worms which exploded into rocket bananas that homed in on enemy worms and set them on fire forever then punted them 10000 feet into the air with zero gravity before exploding into 400 holy hand grenades which crashed the game


    Or the landmass strike where a flying fat guy dropped 5 entire landscapes on top of your landscape that bounced right above each worm's head a hundred times a second before exploding into a five minute fireworks display of every sprite in the game and ended up causing 1 damage to everyone

    I used the shit out of that. Made a baseball bat that didn't end your turn until the timer ran out, did 1 damage, and caused no throwback or launching. It's name? The Rodney King. :P

    Also made a Biblemageddon. The irony was indeed quite delicious.

    I remember in Worms 2, if you could jump backwards correctly, you'd end up behind (like, depth-wise, not actually behind) the worm you were trying to jump onto, instead of on top. You can then drop a cluster right at your feet, and run. When the cluster goes off, every cluster spawns right inside the worm you were hiding behind, and BAM. Worm goes flying, like out of a canon. Instant kill.

    Did that all the time. People hated me.

    I'm willing to forgive Worms 3D anything simply for having the level The Mighty Kong.

    I had it on the Gamecube, and it actually seemed like about as good as a 3D Worms game could be on a first attempt. And I hear Worms 4 is better?

    Worms 4 was worse than 3D, simply due to the presence of game-breaking automated turrets.

    Worms Armageddon was (or still is) the definitive Worms game, but it does have some issues nowadays with systems newer than XP. It does work, but you might have to do some elbow grease last I checked (even with the latest patch from '08, which is pretty good for a game coming from 1999).

    If you know how to do this or have a link to some instructions, please share. I could never get it running on Windows 7 without all the colors inverted, and it would crash whenever I tried to boot the resolution to something properly substantial. This was after fiddling with compatibility modes and installing the beta patch.

    Even if this new Worms is nothing other than Armageddon without all the fiddling around to install it, it'll be a pretty good deal.

    If there are 3 more people interested I could buy it myself.

    I love Worms, but why does Team 17 just continually bring out the same old games over and over again??!

    Alien Breed on XBLA is different but still the same IP of old. Cmon Team 17 bring out something DIFFERENT and NEW!

    I submit that WWP was not different or new. Still, I loved the game, chiefly because I never owned Armageddon.

    Still, I do think that if Team17's idea of a great new innovation is Worms 3D, then yes, they should absolutely just stick to refining their pre-existing formulas as much as possible.

    The one thing I never liked from Worms 2/Armageddon was how soft explosions felt.

    Worms 1/plus had the screen shaking and debris flying everywhere with every explosion, it was madness.
