I looked at the hardware specs for the new version and my jaw hit the floor!
I'd have to spend the best part of £1000 to get a PC capable of playing a £40 game! Elephant that!
Doom 3 I played a couple of times, but it was too linear (same problem with Duke Nukem Forever) - you couldn't play it the way you wanted to, you had to go the way they wanted you to go, do what they wanted you to do, when they wanted you to do it. I preferred the sense of freedom you got (though you didn't actually have any) in the originals.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
I was lucky enough to just fall into the category, where my hardware is good enough to run on medium to low settings. I will surely replay it once I get a new, better computer. I can see why you wouldn't want to upgrade your computer just for a game, I wouldn't either.
Yeah Doom 3 was linear, but I liked the atmosphere. It got cheesy at times, but the first few levels, Delta 4, Hell, levels leading up to your confrontation with Sarge and the last two were pretty good. The rest were more or less filler and yeah it gets boring. I've played Duke Nukem Forever too, but didn't really expect it to be as 3D was. Same with Tomb Raider, while the reboot is very good in 1-4(Last Revelation) you could pretty much complete a level the way you wanted. Do a speed run and skip most of it, or just spend a few hours per level, finding everything. With the new ones there is a mandatory path for completing the story and it's pretty much linear, but you can always go for 100% completion, which extends your gameplay time.
No, to feel old you have to remember typing in 1,000 lines of code from a C&VG article, finding it won't work and spending weeks trying to find the bloody typing error that you hadn't made because the b'stard editor had printed the wrong bloody listing!
A few years back, I have actually caught myself out once at home when I managed to lock myself out of my own computer I was on, and could only recover by powering it down. I had RDPd across to a VM at my ISP and then meant to then rdp to another machine somewhere, but accidently RDPd back into the machine I had started from (I had enabled RDP on it so I could access it when offshore), This then locked me out of everything.
Epic. Just like creating time machine and going to current time. Then, stopping yourself from creating time machine. So now, you are in now and cannot get to real now since you don't have time machine in this (real? fake?) now you are in. Hey Einstein, where you at? SOS
