  1. Well, with all the crazy crap going on in the world, I figured I should read it, just in case anything happened and I either died or electricity went out for the foreseeable future where I live. Unlikely, but with the wars and tensions these days...
  2. Sorry. Since it was based on a Dark Mod campaign, I thought it would go in the main section.
  3. A year or so ago, after having set my mind in acquiring a Kindle to be able to read it, I set out to finish Shadowcursed, a book based in a campaign here in The Dark Mod by Gelo Fleisher. I read through it over the course of a year or so. Sadly, due to my eyes not being what they used to be and extended reading now causing me headaches, I wasn't able to binge on it like I used to do with books in my youth. Instead, I read it off and on over the course of the time since I got it around the midpoint of the Covid 19 pandemic. Having finally finished it, I can saw it was a truly beautiful story taking inspiration from the original Thief trilogy by Looking Glass Studios! I'm glad I purchased it, and also glad that I finally brought myself to finish it despite the migraine behind my eye as I type this from extended hyperfocus of my vision even with my glasses. It had a thrilling, gripping story and a beautiful ending, and I'm glad I have experienced it now.

    I heard there was an update regarding an Inn and a Werewolf?
  5. It looks like the people aren't giving up, even in the face of the regime's usual thuggery.
  6. Just gonna leave this here, saying support for the women in Iran fighting for their rights from being treated like lesser beings, and also support for those men who choose to stand with them against the Ayatollah's madness.
  7. It's meant to be evocative of the PS1.
  8. Has anyone else seen this game? It looks pretty good. It's apparently based off of the 1980's Italian zombie films of Lucio Fulci and Bruno Matei, the ones like Zombi that started as a way to make dough off of Dawn of the Dead. I watched a walkthrough of it, and it reminds me of a more raunchy version of the They Hunger trilogy mods for Half-Life and the unreleased "Against All Odds" gane by JamesyDev on YouTube.
  9. It's not just They Hunger. If I were to ever get filthy, stinking rich... well, I'd probably spend the money on charity, to be honest. But I'd save just enough to fund a passion project of bringing back good old games from my childhood into more modern versions so they aren't forgotten by future generations. I'd pay for remakes of Cthulhu: An Unspeakable Mod, Half Life Ultimate Redemption, Wanted!, Swiss Cheese Halloween 2002, USS Darkstar, and Heart of Evil. And that's just the Half-Life Mods! I'd see a true Thief Remaster, an exact remake but with a more modern engine. I'd bring back good old PS1 Games like Shadow Man, and I don't just mean that remastered version, I'm talking a sequel. I'd do a remake and sequel of Stubbs the Zombie, and Akuji the Heartless! I'd remaster all 3 Gex games in a remastered trilogy like Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot got. I got all these great ideas swirling in my head, but I'm stopped by a mixture of no programmer skills and, even worse, a lack of money. Still, the latter might be gone soon. I'm gonna try to get a job again soon. I applied at my local Burger King. Probably will take a while to earn enough money to pay a single dev for even a single level, but it's a start.
  10. I've mentioned a few times before, I'm a big fan of old Half-Life 1 mods, especially the They Hunger trilogy. But the sad thing is, Half-Life is an aging game, albeit with a meme fanbase. Not many people in the newer gaming generations are familiar with these great games simply due to them being mods for other old games. So, I want to try and share that special, magic feeling I got going through the adventure in the County of Rockwell the first time with a new generation of gamers. But I'm not good at modding myself. My question basically boils down to, how much would I be looking to cough up in dough to pay a programmer to recreate the They Hunger Trilogy in a newer, more advanced engine?
  11. My mom loved the Mila Jovovich movie adaptions even though they're so different from the games, and I thought the first two were okay, but the rest kind of jumped the Shark by making it a global apocalypse. Apparently this show does that too. Still; I planned to watch this movie a few days ago with my family because we don't hang out as much as we used to. They're busy with jobs and I'm left alone in my autistic mancave basement, so I was looking forward to hanging out with them. Maybe I could sit through a shitty show if it means I could be with my family, although it sucks that a series dear to my heart has been raped by woke Hollywood.
  12. I was excited at first when I heard Netflix was going to make a Resident Evil tv show, but I heard from multiple people who I tend to agree with that it's woke garbage, in particular Mutahar from SomeOrdinaryGamers. I did a quick review of others' reviews, and it sound awful. Nonstop woke propaganda B.S. and cringe pop culture references like to "ZOOTOPIA PORN". I heard Netflix was firing most of it's woke writers, but it would seem they managed to squeeze out one last shit from between their asscheeks before they were kicked to the curb. It sucks, because I love the Resident Evil game series.
  13. That's stupid. "You can't ever stop murder/pedophilia, so don't bother making it illegal HERP DERP"
  14. Understandable. I'll admit censorship has gotten out of control in many regards online.
  15. I mean, banning any site that repeatedly hosts actual or simulated CP like Lolis or other sick shit like that is something I can get behind.
  16. I want a Gex trilogy remaster, Deep Cover Gecko was amazing and alongside the Spyro trilogy what made my childhood on PS1.
  17. I want a Duke Nukem game where Duke fights against an alternate version of himself from the past who is from the future. Confused? Basically, FutureEvil!Duke goes into a depression over his loss of popularity since the 90s, along with changes in pop culture, global geopolitics, entertainment, etc. So he builds a time machine and goes back in time and takes over the Earth instead of saving it, forcing the culture of the 90s to never end, so like in 1984 it is forever looping from 1990 to 1999 and resetting. GoodPresent!Duke has to stop his older self who went to the past from ripping the timestream apart with the repeated decade loop, fighting against EvilDuke's army of alien mercenaries, roided out mutants, and robots he bought from Dr. Proton. Eventually, Good Duke beats Evil Duke and learns a lesson that even though times change, and sometimes not necessarily for the better, we can at least choose whether we react poorly or positively to those changes. Then he eats a triple cheeseburger while riding down the highway in his monster truck.
  18. Maybe the only way to fix the gaming industry is to join it and change things from the inside by force.
  19. It could make it more mainstream without having to dumb it down. And attempts at making modern action movies in all but name out of classic games has lead to series losing their original theme at times.
  20. I hope they bring back, in the classic spirit of the original games, without this nu-Theif or Nu-Tomb Raider type nonsense, Gex, Tomb Raider, Akuji, Soul Reaver, and Thief. Straight up just embrace the retro with better graphics, none of this "everything has to be an epic action movie with super cereal stakes and emotional drama".
  21. I also have discussed this idea with people on the console game dreams, and they've made some cool things, too, that people who can't afford to travel or are sick or old and so can't travel, will be able to experience for much cheaper and at home/hospital/retirement home. People have made Zoos filled with Zombie Animals, a recreation of a real life aquarium; one guy remade Disneyland, and one guy is making a collection of theme park rides that have been taken down or replaced, like Jaws The Ride and Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
  22. I was thinking about what you said, nbohr1more, and while I stick by the Basic idea that talking about stuff so people discuss it and come to consensus on how to deal with it or address it is good, I also admit I can be pessimistic at times. So I started a new post, one about a way that programmers of games can help people who are sick, old, or don't have much time left in life to experience fun things they otherwise wouldn't be able to with VIrtual Reality. It's on a new thread.
  23. I was thinking about how I've been a bit of a pessimist whenever I post stuff in the off-topic section of The Dark Mod Forums, and whilst I do stand by the fact that it's healthy to face unhappy realities of the world in order to provide discussion so that people will spread that discussion and the problems are eventually gained notice of and fixed, I also realize that it's kind of depressing, talking about war and strife. So, I decided to talk about a topic of how we can make the lives of people who are sick and dying happier, and help them experience things they wouldn't be able to otherwise due to their conditions, such as elderly in retirement homes or cancer patient children undergoing chemotherapy or other people who can't go out and travel much. I was thinking about how I haven't gone to the Zoo, Aquarium, or Museum for over a decade, and how I haven't gone to an amusement park, water park, or the beach in summer since covid started. Then I thinks to myself, at least you've done that in your life, some people aren't as lucky or well-off as you've been in life; some people never got around to doing that sort of stuff in their life and now they're stuck in a nursing home, or some are still young but stuck sick in the hospital, and may not live long enough to do that stuff. So I got to thinking, I've seen people on The Dark Mod Forums who've discussed making a VR version of The Dark Mod. And I wonder to myself, hey, you don't know how to program any of this for the less fortunate, but you like to suggest stuff to people, plant seeds in their ears like, so I decided to suggest this to you guys: What about making VIrtual Reality Experiences for the less fortunate? Zoos, Aquariums, Amusement Parks, Carnivals, Circuses, Fairs of the normal and medieval variety, Museums, that sort of thing. And they don't just have to be based on reality, with V.R. you could create a zoo full of unicorns, dragons, zombie animals, aliens, demons, and other fantastical beasts, or make Amusement Park rides that aren't feasibly safe with modern technology, like a roller coaster that reaches up into outer space and through an asteroid belt! I know this comes out of nowhere, but the idea hit me and I'd feel guilty if I didn't share it.
  24. I'd like the idea of steampunk versions of the cyborg demons from Doom 3 as enemies in Dark Mod, a sort of pseudo-prequel vibe that Hell's technology grows more advanced as more intelligent evil souls are sent there. So at the time of The Dark Mod, they're limited to the same technology as The Inventors Guild.
