Title: Other games
Post by: RMF on December 14, 2009, 10:54:13
How about playing some other games too? Iím sure ya all know Duke Nukem 3D ;) Released in 1996 but still kicks ass and chews bublegum :D (Ďits time to kick ass and chew bublegum, and im all out of gumí is one of the most famous quotes from dukenukem). As far as I know there are no active players anymore, I only saw a online game with 2 players and some bots last year when I was going to play it with someone else. All development on remakes stoped (as fas as i know), but there are some free working versions for online, and probably a ton of maps too.


Or HoverRace. Released in 1997 by the famous software company Grokksoft.. Nah that is a lie noone knows the game :P (and the company quit 2/3 years later after HR being their only game). Though it was pretty populair at the time. I was just lucky to have an old demo CD I got once when I was a child. On that was hoverrace demo. I found the cd last year june 17th (that i remember that :o) and started playing and met the community (which is real small, and it gets smaller every year). The game is now being developed by one or two developers as free opensource software (didnít hear from the second dev for months though), but at least is is making a bit progress. For example it now works in 32 bit mode so you donít have to switch to 256 colors anymore :D Disadvantage is that you need to forward ports, previously you needed to join a hamachi goup (hamachi is an program which makes the computer believe the others in the hamachigroup are in the same local-area-network as you. This way you can play games online which usually can only be played on LAN).
But seriously, I talk a bit joking about the game but multiplayer can still be real fun. Or trying to beat the best time ever recorded is a nice pasttime too :) If you would ever download it try the track The Alley 2, and beat the world record of 36seconds.... I didnít get less than 48 so far ;)
Hmm I didnít actually say yet what the game is.. Well you are a hovercraft(racer) and the craft can jump and shoot and use some items like cans for speed and rockets. The standard goal is to drive rounds as fast as possible, but there are tons of posibilities with this game. For example there are tracks for:
-standard racing from all dificulties
-hoverrace hockey, one player is the puck and 2 or 4 (we dont have more players :|) play
-football, similar to hockey but larger and faster
-golf, one player is the ball and another player bumps him (there is no damage in the game, even rockets make you only have no control a few secs)
-war, get the least hits and hit time most with your rockets :D
-wrestling, there are some maps where you have a ring and you have to push the other player out
-sort of pong, you have two sides and you can shoot trough but not move through. The goal is to get the other team in the gap behind them.


POD. Actually we should send thousands of mails to ubisoft untill we finally can get or buy the original full vesion of it. That racing game is so awesome! Whipper knows what Iím talking about. I found this on the same CD that contained hoverrace, but it is a demo so no split screen or online. I canít find the full version anywhere on the web (only some stupid remake). Men it would be so awesome if we could play that online XD


Or how about a more modern game maybe. Hmm another quake-engine based game like Call of Duty 2? You can play CoD2 free over the internet, if you know where to get your stuff at least :) I play it sometimes with another friend.
Cod6 (modernwarfare2) is cool too, but not everyone can run it and i canít get it to play online yet. The lastest patch is not cracked yet. The other callofdutys suck so who wants cod2? Some guy even made a map of where I go to a lanparty every summer and it is an allright replica so I can show you :D


If someone would like to we could also play RedAlert2 or Kaneís Wrath from the Command and Conquer series. Dunno if Tiberian Sun works online (or lan is good enough, hamachi fixes the gap between lan and internet).
Orr I got some NES emulator with supermario, if someone could get the multiplayer to work.. :D



So what do you think, play some?

or look at portforward.com for your router model. Of course I can help with any problems too ;)

Call of duty 2 http://www.easy-upload.nl/index.php/file/104b2884baebfc8

those games are almost guaranteed to work on any pc, even my laptop can handle it (from 2001: 500MHz, 64MB RAM), so your old windows should be able to run it too :) If it has internet we can maybe play some time

Crash Bash!!! ( Tiny is one of the characters in this game ;) )
O.o You got your name from Tiny Tiger? I love the game O.o Crash Bash kicks ass! There are more Crash games like crash team racing, nitro cart ('auto' racers) or the crash bandicoot 1,2,3. Best games EVER!

I had psx or ps1 dunno how to call.. I loved to play red alert  as well. Warcraft 3 and Red Alert are the best stategy games :)

ATM i have on my com the following games:

-OpenArena - hard to find a 'community' to play with.. usually i just find bots and newbs. :/ But if i find it, i love it to play :)

-HATE_QUAKELIVE - no problem with the community. But as i noticed, the ppl care too much with their profile. (when teams are unbalanced, f.e. 2v5, ppl dont change team...)

- Urban Terror - I just installed yesterday, q3 in counter strike style.. cool! im just a noob, but i really enjoy playing it. I dont think its good for competiting game, but its fun, for sure!

- Area51 - im just downloading, but it looks cool. :) It reminds me at halo a bit.

These are all FREE GAMES!!!

There is also
- CoD 4 (Modern Warfare) : The campaign is the best of all games! i havent played online, but the single player O.o

-Halo: combat envolved - another great singleplayer game. Didnt play online either, but the single is great. almost same lvl as mw. :)

-TimeShift - didnt play yet, its just installed, but SoSo (he is my real-life friend and an oa player) said its great :)

You can dl the most things at www [dot] isohunt [dot] com

Haha yeah, i knwo the feeling :D sometimes i just launch it, and walking around on the island :D

BTW... im bored about playing online games, even now, i have ping 300-400 usually, so im thinkin about leavin multiplaying (for a while or dunno..) Not fully, just to prefer sp from now on. So..
Could you give me a good single player game? Best would be some kind of cyberpunk/neopunk.hm.. hard to explain.. if you saw Akira, you know what i am talkin about :D It should be played in an alternate future.. doesnt matter if first placed, third placed shooter or strategy :D

Could you give me a good single player game?
For singleplayer I like race games, now I'm mostly playing Dirt2. Nice gfx, awesome gameplay, and just well set up. With that last I mean that the menu's work good (after you played about 3 times and got used to it:P), you can select any race and any car you like, you can participate in real existing tournaments like the X-Games, you got different types of racing (though centered around offroad), anything new is explained well before the race with a short video, you can look everything back you have archieved and stats and such, other racers speak a bit with you by phone so that gives a bit of personality, in rallys the co-driver tells you what corners are coming up (like in real rally games, works fantastic) and responds to what you do (my head is spinning sometimes when you spin out ;D), and above all: all those cool features are put together in a good way. Now that is a combination I don't see often: many awesome and original features put together in a good way.
Is the game all perfect 100/100? Well I gotta say it comes close, I can't spot much important cons. Just a few small points: it loads menu's a bit long (races I can imagine but menus must be quick), one of the voices is really lame and even worse than nerd-like, and the crowd is dumb.. The IQ they put in the racers (which is also awesome) lacks completely in the spectators. Look here (http://www.easy-upload.nl/index.php/file/104b4903820b7ec), this fellow is just jelling and cheering into nothing, i didn't even start yet :o But neither the loading, voices or crowd is part of the gameplay so I really like the game ;)

Also I enjoyed FUEL and Race Driver GRID before. In fuel you could also drive bikes instead of only cars, and the world map was HUGE. You could just drive something like 1 hour in a straight line from one side of the map to another. GRID is a bit more competitive, you have race teams and professional tracks and such. Not that dirt2 is such an easy game if you set the dificulty high, but it is a lot easier to learn to control than grid.
