My Logitech mice are crud catchers, and I think one failed. I'd love to have the ones you're talking about, though.

For me, it's just the opposite. Spidweb.com is considered NSFW because it hosts games and it will slow down the peon's productivity, and the entire economy will collaspe. The boss doesn't really care about Irony Central.

Okay, so it isn't complete then. Hmm. I'd put up the complete list of spells up, but I've never played with a pacifist.
Anyway, to add to my previous reply, I agree with some of the posters here that III had the best engine, and II had the best plot.

Weird. Someone still uses AltaVista. Well, it is better then the bloated mess it used to be before Google showed less is better.
And I still use Windows 98/2000, it works fine for me.

So... you'd end up creating an almost entirely new game. *shrug*

As for the maps, there are plenty of areas that they could snip from the different games to create the arenas. What exactly defines having deathmatch in mind to you? There are plenty of boss fights and large scale battles that have maps that work for that....

Well, I would have thought that a single player map would use exploration as a goal so the user would check out every corner for hidden treasure (this is used in tandem, of course, with the usual quest of killing everything or picking up the special item, etc.) Whereas a network map would be used for players to get quickly to one spot to the other. I'm reminded of a guideline in _Marathon_ network maps; you have to have a flow, as to not frustrate people with a slow lag or whatever. I'm sure someone else could explain this better.
Anyway, I know that this isn't Marathon, but shouldn't the basic principles be the same?

Been reading Danse Macabre by Stephen King. Good stuff—has King ever written a revision to the book? I'm sure the horror genre has done something past the early '80s.

I'm just tossing an uninformed opinion here, but I thought that the engine would have to be rebuilt from scratch to change from a single player game to what you have proposed. The battle system too, probably. And, correct me if I'm wrong, the maps aren't designed for a deathmatch in mind.
So... you'd probably be creating an entirely new game. *shrug*

*sigh* Missed the deletion of SubTerra & Richard White forums. Though it doesn't sound like much changed from when I left...
To get back on the other conversation thread, I played Rock Solid and Ocean Bound. I don't believe I figured out the keys for Rock Solid, and Ocean Bound was one of those games that I found too frustrating to continue on.

I came back, said 1337 for no reason at all, and then I left again. I also got an "omg, ezAndy".
It's just one of those moments that make no sense when you look at it in retrospect. Gives you that feeling of warm, fuzzy nostalgia.

Right now, I'm playing my own, somewhat lame, Visual Basic games.
Other stuff... solitaire, minesweeper, pinball. Most games I'm holding off till the summer to play, when I have more time to do it all at once.

Yep, I have a few songs from Fellowship that I listen to. Six minutes long, so sometimes I skip them by if I want a quicker beat.

I listen to the Exile background music, converted into MP3s.
And... about 1,000 other songs that could fit into my pocket. :)

I think the reason for the difference is that some companies, when making the folders for their Mac games, put lots of segments from the splash screen as icons, and arrange them so that when you open the folder, you see the splash screen as icons. Actually, it's quite clever.
I’ve found a few applications that’ll do that, like Pict2Icon (couldn’t find a link to it, but it’s on my hard drive).

For six character parties I use Jake, Rachel, Tobias, Cassie, Marco and Ax. Hey, they fit, I can find graphics to match and I don’t feel original enough to find Nephilim names or whatever.
For four character parties: David, Christopher, April and Jalil.
I have used another names in the past, but those are the ones that I know off by memory, so they‘d get chosen whenever I start a new game in Exile.

I like to collect entire series of books, so I won’t have to rely on the library if I’m bored one day.
And I collect a lot of web pages, mostly for offline viewing. I’ve got web pages here dating back to '01 so I can feel nostalgic. Good times.
