    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    What I'm listening to: Amon Amarth - Destroyer of the Universe

    Yesterday I didn't post an update. The reason is because I wanted to finish Master Of Orion. That was going to be the theme of yesterday's update but something near the end of it made me change my mind.

    See, Master of Orion is a good game. It's made my Microprose, the guys who did the X-COM series. That right away for me is reassurance that they probably got this right.

    The game's alot of fun when you know what you're doing and it can be quite challenging too. The thing that guards Orion uses Endgame technology and thus is incredibly dangerous to anything that crosses it's path.

    But the endgame is where I felt it lacking. I'm about to play through it again at a higher difficulty and with two races rather than one. The end of my first game resulted in the Humans failing to make a ship that could match my endgame ship.

    Anyway. Cave Story wont be touched till Saturday. On Saturday it will all be recorded and start processing. Videos will appear either Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    Yeah, that always was one problem with Master of Orion - the end is pretty much always going to be anticlimactic, because by the time you get there you already control 99% of the factories in the galaxy.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    What I'm listening to right now: Dimmu Borgir: Burn in Hell (Cover)

    So tomorrow I record what may be the last session of Cave Story.

    Yay?

    Well, no. I'm looking forward to recording it but not ending it, if you catch my meaning. I will attempt the Sacred Grounds for definiate aswell as the special area before the Balcony.

    After this? I'll see about recording a game called 1213. I quite like that game despite the difficulty of the bosses.

    But afterwards I have no idea. I've got no clue for a new project Let's Play wise. One hand has Zone of the Enders: Fist of Mars, a turn based GBA game that I love to bits but never finished. The other hand has S.T.A.L.K.E.R Clear Sky or Call of Pripyat. I'm hesitant on these two due to the sheer requirements of getting them to run flawlessly, let alone record it. There's also apparently issues trying to record it with FRAPS running before the game is.

    But suppose that the hands are two sides of a coin. It can also theoretically land on it's edge, the rim of the coin itself. Suppose it does that, what would the result be? Well, Battleships Forever comes to mind (I'd have to check for the most recent version but I heavily doubt it's been updated. Game's pretty much dead) as does another favourite of mine, DooM 3. Nexus, the Jupiter Incident's another game I like but is amazingly hard in the main part of it.

    Starship Troopers: FPS is the final idea I can think of that I'd be willing to do. Another game I've never completed but I got damn far.

    So here's my question, what should I do next? STALKER would take a while, both gameplay and editing wise, but would be alot of fun to pull off (Heck of alot of interaction on this one) but the length of the game might put you all off (Could be 60+ videos to do the entire game of Clear Sky or Call of Pripyat decently and without dying every 10 minutes).

    So there, the question has been place. Out of the following, which would you want to see me Let's Play next and why?

    Zone of the Enders: Fist of Mars
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R Clear Sky or Call of Pripyat
    Battleships Forever
    DooM 3
    Nexus, the Jupiter Incident
    Starship Troopers

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    I'll vote for ZoE:FoM, since I haven't seen you do a strategy RPG yet.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    The vote thing will stay open (And appear as the question) until both games are done (most likely next wednesday).

    As for today.

    I bought black fabrics today and a baseball hat, a black one at that. The reasons for this will hopefully become apparent sometime soon (Killjoy should hopefully remember the reasons why I've got black fabric and a black baseball hat).

    What I'm Listening To : Rammstein: Waidmanns Heil (Huntman's Greeting)

    I have infront of me a red plastic suitcase about 30cm wide, 8 cm tall and 10 cm long. It's in a rectangular shape incase you were wondering.

    "What's in the suitcase" you may not be thinking. Well it contains the most infuriating thing I can think of that's ever been concieved. It tears families appart despite it being a family activity. It causes stingy people to cry horribly. It makes the homeless have hope when they see what they've got.

    It is of course Monopoly. The suitcase is a travel version of the rage enducing boardgame that makes everyone threaten someone with a kitchen knife or other sharp object lying convieniantly next to their hand. A game where you have to deliberatly screw people over in order to win.

    Why do I have it? I have no clue. It came in the mail for me. By in the mail, I mean I found it jammed in my letterbox. This isn't the first time I've recieved something like this. I also got Summoner 2 for PS2 like this aswell as Command and Conquer Generals: Deluxe Edition.

    Some other items I've had given to me anonymously includes a box of 20 condoms, a protractor, a tape measure, a paintbrush, a tv remote and a letter from Jehova's Witnesses asking me if I want to become one.

    I don't know if it's just where I live that does this, but random stuff ends up shoved through my letterbox like a fat guy trying to reach the bottom of the cookie jar.

    So my question is this: Have you ever received something through the letterbox that makes no sense?

    Also I'm still open for suggestions on what game to Let's Play out of the following:

    Zone of the Enders: Fist of Mars
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R Clear Sky or Call of Pripyat
    Battleships Forever
    DooM 3
    Nexus, the Jupiter Incident
    Starship Troopers

    At the moment only ZoE has a vote for it. This will again be done in video format but then, they all will be. As I said at the start of the post, the suggestion voting thing will probably end next Wednesday.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    I wish anonymous people would randomly give me free stuff. So, yeah, my answer to the question is "no."

    Looking forward to all of these upcoming LPs, particularly ZoE and STALKER.

    ZoE is one that'll take a while to figure out how to record. If FRAPS likes it then I'll use that. If Hypercam has to record it I pray I don't have to change any settings.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    What I'm Listening To: Anubis: Zone Of The Enders - Beyond The Bounds

    Cave Story One Life Edition is over. Next I get to try and record all of Twelve Thirteen. Hopefully I can.

    Voting and such remains open until Wednesday.

    Doctor Who made no sense again. Nothing new there.

    As for today's topic. That remains to be the discussion of a thing called Skulltag. Specifically, ZDoom Wars (Yea, try and figure THAT one out). Even more specifically, Team Zdoom Wars.

    Let's start from the beginning. ZDoom Wars is a ZDoom and Skulltag mod (WAD) that enables people to command armies of monsters from each respective DooM Engine game. That would be DooM, Heretic, Hexen and Strife. Chex Quest is also added and for some reason so is Virus.

    I know that BaronofStuff has played ZDoom Wars before and that he dislikes it because of how it's played.

    I find the game has a severe Love-Hate relationship going on. In some cases what you want to work will work, in other cases you'll find your Melee only units not attacking the thing you spawn them next to which is usually a Player. Instead they run the Triathalon to attack that drone / commonus / imp / afrit / zombieman at the OTHER end of the map.

    I recall far to many situations where the Melee units have been unable to reach something and haven't changed target to the Player pushing them off of whatever place they're stood on.

    I digress. It can be a fun game. Emphasis on CAN.

    As for Team ZDoom Wars... That can either be fun or the equivilant of having every nail torn out whilst your hands are being Band-sanded down to the bone during a Tripanning session.

    Example. I was in a match of 4V4. We were on a map where there's a prominant position that's hard to get to and quite good to defend and attack from.

    At the start of the match I tell the entire team what we're going to do (2 of the 3 asked what the plan was, the 3rd was busy messing around with controls to realise what I typed there and then so I re-sent it).

    So what happened? They ignored it. One of them went off and fought two people at once, lost, ran away and blamed me for not helping whilst I was tied up trying to help the two people near me get out of a sticky situation.

    It gets better as that one person who decided that I was the Anti-christ in this situation immediatly from that point on made it his life's mission to tear appart the battlefield and go straight for me. This was evidenced in the 2nd match on a different map. On this one he laughed and mocked the fact I died.

    ...After 20 minutes. The Average Lifespan of a ZDoom Wars Player is 0-8 minutes. Some last as long as 14 in a 4v4 match but it's rare to see it go past that.

    How had we survived so long? Everyone listened to me and we dug our heels in hard in the only position we had. When I died, the remaining 2 started dying (Our third had to go mid-match).

    So this goes to serve two purposes: One, I know exactly what I'm doing most of the time. Two, Skulltag is full of numbnuts who have no idea how to work in a team situation in a Real Time Strategy setting.

    Question: Have you ever injured yourself in a stupid way? I for one have closed a door on myself and that resulted in a bloodied nose.

    And as usual, here's the Let's Play list:

    Zone of the Enders: Fist of Mars
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R Clear Sky or Call of Pripyat
    Battleships Forever
    DooM 3
    Nexus, the Jupiter Incident
    Starship Troopers

    At the moment only ZoE has a vote for it. Though I'm not surprised that no-one else has posted a suggestion. It looks like it'll be Zone Of The Enders at this rate.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    What I'm Listening To: Blind Guardian - Sacred Worlds

    So yet ANOTHER Let's Play is being done by me ( Cave story was my first to appear here. Starship Troopers came before that but never spoken about here) and this one will be fairly short (I predict no more than 14 parts) and hopefully interesting.

    Moving onto today's topic, it's another DooM Mod. A Skulltag one called Ghouls V Humans. Let's begin

    Ghouls V Humans started out as Ghoul's Forest. The idea was that a badly sprited disembodied head would chase you around at a speed equal to your fastest running spead and would try and eat you. You had to kill it.

    Quite fun and challenging.

    Then Ghoul's Forest 2 came along. This time a flying disembodied head that made screaming noises chased you and every time you damaged it, it would disappear. What made this ghoul worse was the fact it had Noclip and that the game could be extremely drawn out simply by running out of shotgun ammo.

    But Ghoul's Forest wasn't finished just yet. Cutman Mike, the creator, released Ghoul's Forest 3. This included four ghouls. Three new and the one was from Ghoul's Forest 2. This time you had a bow and arrow instead of conventional firearms.

    The first ghoul would be randomised. It could be a disembodied head (Wow, common theme here) that "jittered" around and would try to swallow you whole. The other was a ghost of sorts that was incredbly small and almost blended into the fog on the floor. This one had the possibilites of charging straight at you when injured or running away.

    When all three ghouls are killed (Ghouls' forest 2 + THe ghost and swallow whole head) you would fight the fourth.

    Now this is my main problem with the game. I can never hit her. Even when I hit the 4th ghoul, it doesn't register and I end up dying. But hey, Dying's normal right?

    Cutman Mike thought it'd be a great idea to make it so that when you die to this 4th ghoul you'd see Aborted babies, severed heads (Severed head fetish springs to mind here) and the usual assortment of "scary" images.

    The heads I understand same with the images. But why the Aborted Babies? That's not needed at all. I've never played a horror game and demanded that Aborted Babies be shoved in my face everytime I die. No, just no.

    And then a Multiplayer version of this Ghoul's Forest came out. Sjas (GF2), Choke (GF1), Jitterskull (GF3) and Creeper (GF3) were the Ghoul team (no surprise) and the Humans had a Marine (GF1+2), Hunter (GF3) and a Cyborg who never appeared in any of the games but WHY NOT.

    Humans get a guy with magical bow and arrow attacks, a guy with firearms and grenades and a FLYING ROBOT WITH PLASMA that can regenerate ammo.

    Ghouls get an army of 1-hit-kill ghouls. One can become invulnerable and reflective but can't move. One can fire a 1-hit kill gravity effected "bloodball", one teleports and effectivly has Noclip since his movement's never affected by terrain and the last can stop you from moving and then kill you which refills all of it's HP.

    You can just tell that balance was a key thing here.

    It got worse. New classes were added. Frostbite, a guy for the ghouls who has bouncing ice breath that can go through people and he himself as regenerating armour. Humans got Santa at first who fired snowballs, threw hollies and shot stars at ghouls. Then it got replaced with the Engineer who fired nails, threw sawblades and shot balls of magma and rock at ghouls.

    And now even more classes have been added. Each more overpowered than the last. Want a ghoul that doesn't have to see someone to hit them? They made a ghoul that can turn invisible and fire shots that don't care about terrain and deal immense damage when they hit.

    Want a human that can one-shot kill almost every ghoul? There's a melee class that has a hammer attack which sends lightning out across the floor. HP drops fast.

    And yet, for all it's unbalances I still play it. Why? Because it's a great time waster.

    So my question is this: Have you ever done something you know is horrible / bad but you needed to pass the time somehow?

    And as usual, here's the Let's Play list:

    Zone of the Enders: Fist of Mars
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R Clear Sky or Call of Pripyat
    Battleships Forever
    DooM 3
    Nexus, the Jupiter Incident
    Starship Troopers

    ZoE is still the only thing that has a vote for it.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    What I'm listening to: A shameless plug that you've all probably heard

    1213's coming along greatly. It'll be finished tomorrow. Since no-one's put any input in at all asides from Killjoy I might aswell plow straight into ZoE once 1213's done.

    Today's topic?

    I was stood behind an old lady talking to the shop clerk. I was stood there with a packet of Millionaire Shortbread in my hand (Shortbread, caramel and then chocolate going up in that order). It took a whole 6 minutes before I could buy what I wanted.

    What took so long? The old lady was talking about how bruised her arm was after it was in a sling.

    Now it's bad enough when they talk for a bit. A minute is how long it usually lasts. 6 minutes? That's absurdly long and shows the lady is clearly lacking someone to talk to.

    I then had to go back in later to buy birthday cigars (I don't smoke but the person who does sees it as a celebration worthy thing to smoke a cigar on someone's birthday) and the same old lady was stood there. She had trapped a different shop clerk this time and was talking about the EXACT SAME thing as she had done earlier in the day.

    Now this really got me thinking. Is she craving attention? Does she love spreading the story about her ravaged arm because of a sling? Is she bored and wondering how many people she can tell the same thing to before they start blanking her out?

    So aptly, the question today is this: Has anyone you don't know walked up to you and talked about something uninteresting?
