Alternatively, CP, you can set your system clock to May 16 and play any level. That's supposed to be the birthday of Scott Host. You'll see some funny stuff. Besides the coconut-shooting monkeys, there's other stuff, such as artillery cows, laser-shooting metal manta rays, andI think there's a Star Trek reference on Outer Regions Wave 4. If you shoot that bugger, you get a raw freylium ore. ;)

Nobody's allowed out over here anyway.   I nominate E (as a fair and just overlord) to arrange a Zoom HLP Social.

Well, there's a shareware Windows port at Mountain King Studios' website. You don't need DOSBox to run it, but I suggest using the mouse.

I have every reason to believe that they renamed themselves from Cygnus Studios. :doubt:

as for monster respawn if you feel up to it of killing a rumbler, bring up the console i think its shift + : (unsure, not including '+') and type in 'summon_obj rumbler' im not sure if their is something else that is needed, the same with a laser_turret and hack it when it spawns :D, place in an area where you know you will encounter enemies. i never did because the game is so easy.

Sorry for dredging up a post 3 pages old, but I just saw this.

System Shock 2 was EASY?

I don't know if you were playing on Very Easy, had the monster respawns and weapons degradation off, or were just playing a different game but on it's medium setting SS2 is difficult, on hard its damn near impossible, and Impossible is quite simply telling the truth - at least, for a Psionics specialist.  Maybe starting as a marine makes it easier. I beat it on Hard - once (and only by reducing the rate of monster spawns and weapons degradation) - and tried it on Impossible.  I couldn't get off Deck 2.

SS2 is quite possibly the best game I've ever played, but it is without a doubt the most difficult as well.

hey, s ocarnia of time for virtual console any good? i finnaly got some GC controllers, and my parents are going to get me some wiipoints today
Sig nuked! New one coming soon!

hey! don't knock the game that is in my view, im just as intitled to my own corner as you are :P.

the only way you can kill your enemy is by study and adapting, find a weakness and exploit it however im not a hardcore ss2 player looking to try become an unlikely hero in impossible odds, if you want to do that, be my guest :lol: go ahead and die everytime!!.

Old games...hmm...

I made this for a game that was originally released in 1998, but was given a few extra levels in 2007. Might be worth a look.

interesting.. however i have played my share of commander keen and god of thunder. graphics are similar to that of an old building game meant for kids, i can not remember its name.

speaking of old games, i have been looking around of ages trying to find this 3d version of chomper (pac man), it was created for dos however the graphics of the game was far above that of any dos game and even rivals that of todays games, it doesn't have your typical layout of what chomper is, like the square with some walls and truckload of pills with 4 big pills. this was a lot less tranditional from chomper games i have seen.

i will continue lookinging, its also worth saying that since i played it 4 months after i started looking around for it, total of 8 years has been spent looking around to no luck.

Does anyone here plays or owns Ikaruga and/or Radiant Silvergun? I don't have either, but they sure are fun to watch. :nod:

The music in the Windows version sounds off though, since it was originally designed to be used with the SB OPL synthesizers. The DOS version works flawlessly in Dosbox though.

20 minutes into raptor i half completed half the 3 campaigns. sufficed to say its too short per wave. besides it gets repetitive its very much like galactix.

Have you done all of them on Elite? I think I've done both the Bravo and Tango Sectors. :D

Waves 4 and 7 of Tango Sector are nightmares on Elite. :shaking:

Those aren't too bad. The ones that I remember being particularly hard are Outer Regions 6 and 9 on elite. At one time, I used to play this game so much that I knew all the enemy waves by heart and could beat the game on elite without using any phase shields, although I wouldn't be able to do it now.

This game is very short though. I still go back to it occasionally and can complete it in less than two hours.

:eek:

I still need Phase Shields on the highest difficulty level. The furthest extent I've gone is to complete Wave 1 of Bravo Sector on Elite difficulty without taking any damage.
