General Discussion! / UFO: IWBTF Unknown
« on: November 22, 2009, 10:37:54 am »
UFO: Enemy Unknown (AKA X-COM: UFO Defense) is a game that does not require any introduction, so...

Introduction: check if you don't know about this game

Hell, I'll do it anyway. X-COM is a great game for PC released in the early 90s. In it, the year is 1999, and humanity has made contact with aliens. Unfortunately, the aliens don't respond to communication, and start to abduct humans. Earth's governments try to fight the aliens of on their own, but unfortunately the aliens ships are so fast tthat human aircraft can't even keep up, let alone attack. So, they decide to found a multinational team of soldiers, researchers and engineers to study and repel the alien threat.

This group is named X-COM (Extraterrestrial Combat Unit).

The game is divided into to parts: The Geoscape and the Battlescape. The Geospace is where you found your bases, intercept UFOs, research stuff, buy weapons and the like. In Battlescape you command soldiers against the aliens in an isometric turn-based battle sequence. These battles lead to recovery of alien artifacts which can then be researched and possibly reproduced at the X-COM bases, and can also lead to the recovery of live aliens which may then be assigned as a research project to produce information, possibly leading to new technology. Also, Earth's governments are the ones who give you the money to do all this, and if you mess up too badly they will disband the whole operation, leading to you losing the game.

The goal of the game is to find out where the aliens are coming from and stopping them. Simple, right? Not so. This game can be hard: even at the start your soldiers will have to face aliens wielding far superior weaponry. How do you get better weapons them? Well, you will have to kill the aliens that have the and reseach them.

There's a lot more to this game, but this post is looking too big already, so I'll cut to the chase:


I still play this game regularly, and what's neat in it that you can name the bases and the soldiers. So I thought to myself, 'What if I named the soldiers according to people from IWBTF, and then played through the game with them? And then post screenshots of the results?'

At the very start we only have 8 soldiers, but we can quickly recruit more. So do you have what it takes to protect the earth? Then join up! Make a post including the following information:

Name
Male or female
You 'role' (Medic, heavy-weapons, jack-of-all-trades,) in the team (optional)
Bio (optional)

As I already said, there's a lot in this game, but don't worry, I'll go through it as we progress in the game.

Feel free to RP in this topic as much as you want. Just don't except me to give you a Blaster Launcher in-game just because wanted one, okay?  ;D

Crap! / It's my 18th birthday
« on: July 29, 2009, 05:51:25 am »
So, I'm now 18 years old.

So far I've gotten a new chair for my computer, the Watchmen comic, and the House of Leaves novel.

Best of all, now I have no restrictions for my computer use/gaming, so I can play all I want! Woo!

Ordered it last week, arrived today. Seems very neat.  :) Very briefly tested Animal Crossing, works just fine.

Gonna get some games later, any suggestions for them?

Violence perfected

I found out about this game on Monday, and I must say that it rocks to the moon and back.

It's a fighting game, although not in the traditional sense. You control a Tori, and the goal is to win the game, which depending on the rules is achieved by knocking your opponent to ground, causing enough damage or forcing him out of the ring.

There are no pre-defined moves in this game. In each round, you and your opponent choose what joints you wish to interact with. For example, you could contract your left hip and hold your left knee, or do pretty much anything. Decapitations, ripping your opponent's arms off, it's all there. Just check the trailer on the frontpage: all that and much more can be done in-game.

The game features single-player for practicing, and multi-player for the real action. Check out some of the fight's I've had: they can be found at the end of this post. Just place them in the replay section of you Toribash folder, open up the game, select Setup, Replays, and then select the replay you wish to view.

My nick there is Tervez, feel free to ask me questions either in this topic or in-game.

General Discussion! / So I got myself a Super Nintendo yesterday...

... and I could use some suggestions for games. I already got Donkey Kong Country, but nothing else. I'm interested in pretty much all genres except sports and driving.

(Before you say "Omg you got SNes now, not, like, ten years ago, are you some kind of Halo playing douchebag?", let me just say Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start.)
