  1. I know it's been a long, long while, but I wanted to update this thread with the latest episode I've posted! Jurassic Park: Trespasser - Knee-Deep In the Dead Episode 16 Jurassic Park: Trespasser is a unique first-person shooter tie-in to the blockbuster film The Lost World: Jurassic Park. It was also considered the worst game of 1998. Is it actually a hidden gem, or are the rumors of its terrible nature true? +++ Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2 - Knee-Deep In the Dead 17 Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2 is the sequel to the hit game Star Wars: Dark Forces (Which we covered in the 3rd ever episode of Knee-Deep in the Dead here: https://youtu.be/Yv1amyp7Tzw ). This game brought the Star Wars experience into the 3D environments that were dominating late 90s shooters. +++ Call of Duty - Knee-Deep In the Dead 18 Call of Duty Month begins for the first time ever with the very first entry into the franchise! How does this 12-year old game hold up and was it truly worthy of kicking off one of the biggest franchises in gaming history? +++ Sorry for the spontaneous bump out of nowhere, but Angry Joe and the site's been great, I just wanted to keep this updated. Been trying to keep to an actual production schedule, at least for the time being. Thanks again for everyone being super awesome!
  2. Thank you. It's something I'm kind of tweaking. Have a new one in the works, so we'll see. Thanks for your comment!
  3. IT RETURNS! Episode 15 of Knee-Deep in the Dead focusing on the 1999 release of Aliens vs Predator: Aliens vs Predator is a fast-paced action shooter that focuses primarily on the playstyle differences between the three species: Alien, human and Predator. N'Eligahn jumps into each species to give you the lowdown on this action classic. Knee-Deep in the Dead is an ongoing series studying the evolution of the First-Person Shooter from the early days of the genre to today. Season 1 mostly focuses on the most important titles released in the FPS "Golden Age", between 1992 and 2001.
  4. Whoo! Thank you very much for the spotlight on my series! I'm working on a new one as we speak!
  5. Awesome! Thank you very much for your reply.
  6. FPS is my absolute favorite genre. If you wand GOOD FPSes from this year, play Shadow Warrior or Rise of the Triad. There's also Wolfenstein 2009 if you want some Nazi-killing goodness. There's also Hard Reset. Bioshock Infinite was okay but not a great shooter. Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty Ghosts are also pretty much rubbish FPSes. Destiny is basically Halo in a new setting (Kind of like Halo was Marathon in a new setting.) As for getting sick of them, there's plenty of classic FPSes on GoG and steam you can play such as Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, Doom, Quake, etc. if you need your love of the genre to get a nice shot of adrenaline. Remember that the BFs/CoDs of the world aren't all the genre has to offer.
  7. Episode 14 of Knee-Deep in the Dead focusing on the original Rainbow Six: Rainbow Six is a hostage rescue simulation FPS focusing on an international team of operatives out to rid the world of terrorism. N'Eligahn dives into the game to find out what this game contributed to the future of shooters. Knee-Deep in the Dead is an ongoing series studying the evolution of the First-Person Shooter from the early days of the genre to today. Season 1 mostly focuses on the most important titles released in the FPS "Golden Age", between 1992 and 2001.
  8. On December 10, 1993, a shareware version of a brand new action shooting game was uploaded onto an FTP server at the University of Wisconsin. This game, developed by ID Software, was called Doom and it would eventually sweep the world, creating an entirely new genre of first-person shooters. I played Doom for the first time on the admittedly terrible Sega 32X port., but it prompted a love of the FPS-genre that I still have today. Its shooting mechanics are still solid, the enemies varied and the music amazing. I still enjoy listening to the classic Doom soundtrack. To celebrate this game, I'll be hosting an all day livestream at twitch.tv/neligahn startin at Midnight on December 10th. It'll be full of lots of death and reminiscing. And maybe some discussion about where the first-person shooter genre has gone in the 20 years since the Hangar level, E1-M1, captured the world by storm. Do any of you out there have great memories of this series, or first-person shooters in general? Please share and talk about them! Game on and take care!
  9. It's /technically/ not a "shooter", yeah, it's more "action adventure", but I think it's enough of a grey area to be considered an "FPS". Also, this is the latest trailer for it: So many cutscenes...and the only real gameplay was of pickpocketing, which actually looks more based off of Sly Cooper than Dishonored, which is interesting. Like I said, I'll still play it, but at this point I've a feeling it'll be more like a Max Payne 3-style interactive movie than a genuine Thief game.
  10. Oh believe me, I'll play it and make a series out of it. But everything in the trend of FPSes is pointing towards more scripted CoD-like games and farther from the open enviornments of Thief and its ilk. It will most likely be a /good/ theme park ride, but still a theme park ride. Also, since Thief basically created the stealth genre, any game utilizing any sort of stealth mechanics owes an homage to it, so no, I don't think Dishonored ripped Thief off anymore than Splinter Cell, Assassin's Creed or No One Lives Forever did.
  11. 1. Doom 2. Half-Life 3. Aliens vs Predator (1999) 4. No One Lives Forever 5. Bioshock 6. Unreal 7. Aliens vs Predator 2 8. Wolfenstein (2009) 9. Call of Duty (2003) List will probably change as I play more FPSes and catch up to all of the ones released over the years.
  12. Whereas Dishonored paid homage to Thief, this looks like it's blatantly ripping off Dishonored. I actually just did a video on Thief 1. And based on the gameplay footage, they're doing to this the same thing they're doing to the new Wolfenstein: CoD-ifying it. i.e. Scripted, theme park rides with little player input and big set pieces. It's like modern games are TERRIFIED of the player having any sort of downtime. Like if there's quiet moments they'll immediately collapse from sheer boredom.
  13. Ha, definitely. Playing Rainbow Six for the next episode. Now THAT'S a game that has /not/ aged well. Both in graphics and in pathfinding.
  14. I was behind the gaming times the year it was released and wasn't able to really start catching up until the mid-2000s and this was my first time ever playing Unreal. It was the first FPS in a long time to give Doom a run for its money in terms of sheer shooting mechanics and it surprised the heck out of me. Even today the graphics hold up well. Better than some of the other games from this period I've played.
  15. Episode 13 of Knee-Deep in the Dead focusing on Thief: The Dark Project: Thief: The Dark Project tells the story of Garrett, a thief who thrills for the art of the steal and who gets himself into major trouble. N'Eligahn moves through the shadow to talk about the father of the modern stealth genre. Knee-Deep in the Dead is an ongoing series studying the evolution of the First-Person Shooter from the early days of the genre to today. Season 1 mostly focuses on the most important titles released in the FPS "Golden Age", between 1992 and 2001. Feedback and comments are appreciated. Game on and take care.
