Broke down and bought the Quake pack, Appearntly there is even patches for Quake for the steam version. In these two forums on steam.

Quake 1

Quake 2
http://forums.steamp...d.php?t=1756937

I am excited as Quake was like my second FPS I remember playing it all the time in secret and having to hide the files and game path under a different name had to do the same thing with Diablo. At least I'll know the tricks when my kid tries to do the same thing :twisted:

It was acting weird for a few minutes a about 10 minutes ago but now my community tab is working using the website and the client. My guess is it is just a glitch but you might wanna check it.

Oops I meant the Quake pack, I should edit that. Also that's really great of you too :applause:

Ya there really simple games, but also what is kind of nice too. Can just launch play for 10 minutes or so and then quit. Don't need to have like a committed block of time to play them. I'm surprised they havn't found a way to put them on like tablet's because of this.

O.K. so I already have Return to Castle Wolfenstein GOTY on disc from way back, but I want to pick up the one Steam pulled from the store from 2009 named just "Wolfenstein", so where do you find the cheapest copy? (Download preferable)

Anyone who wants a 72-Hour guest pass to The Secret World, just PM me your email.

You're going to have a hard time finding a digital copy, because it was pulled from Steam due to a rights issue. I assume that means every other digital site would have to pull it as well or be in violation of their agreement with whoever holds the rights now.

So the only difference being that you don't receive full credit for the price on steam?

Thanks!


You still receive full credit, as long as they're 20% of your total contributions or less. For example, let's say a user has contributed $200 in games not from a bundle or before the bundle took place. 20% of $200 would be $40, meaning they'll receive full value for $40 of possible bundle games they've previously posted, or decide to post.

The order doesn't affect the result, so even if they submitted $40 in bundle games to start and didn't receive full value, but then decided to post those $200 in non-bundle games, they still end up with the full value of $240.

In short, the vast majority of users will never see a reduced value whether they're posting bundle games or non-bundle games. It just acts as a fail-safe to keep users from reaching high contributor values by only gifting bundle games.

Well ended up buying myself Quake 4 and Commander Keen. After going to a very small comic con and not spending much, I decided to pick those two up. I just hope Commander Keen is not going to be a bitch to get working.


Worked just fine on my Win7. It took me a few minutes to remember the control keys though.

Alright Quake 4 is tempting me and my hold on my wallet is weak. How is the game if I was only going to be looking to play single player.


That should be all you're looking for from Quake 4. Q4, despite getting lots of improvements in the long run, just never drew enough people from Q3. It has a nice campaign in it though, so no problems enjoying the singleplayer aspect.

re: Legend of Fae


The horizontal only movement part doesn't bother me. At first I was expecting vertical movement but once I got used to the mechanics I was fine with it.

I do agree though that it get significantly harder as you progress. I will confess that sometimes I just go nuts and spam moving blocks around randomly at a frenzied pace. And you know what? It works!

It's a lame cheesey thing to do but gotta do what ya gotta do what do sometimes.


I've read the difficult level spikes drastically towards the end. I'm not looking forward to getting my ass kicked by Legend of Fae.

I also do the frenzied clicking- especially when the low health music starts playing, and my panic level shoots through the roof. I feel bad when I let little Claudia die. So, I frenzy click and use all the mana tubes for health. I rarely beat the time limits.

Also its finally nice to see Coconut queen dethroned for play time in the BGCQ group.

    A New Game Everyday

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 06 August 2012 - 01:51 AM

I just downloaded CK and fired up a session. While it was strange to see a game start up in DOS mode everything seemed to work fine. I'm using a laptop with HD3000 integrated graphics and Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I did get a "not optical resolution" message after exit but nothing actually changed from my settings before starting the game.


Same for me. Commander Keen works fine here with Windows 7 64-bit. No issues at all. It has Dosbox built into like a GOG game so anyone worrying about it not running on modern OSes don't.

It's a fun little game with several different sequels collected and definitely worth the $1.24 if you like retro side scrolling action games.

Also its finally nice to see Coconut queen dethroned for play time in the BGCQ group.


Heresy! :fridge:

In all seriousness though it is a good game and it's worth the playing hours a lot of us did put it into.

Having said that, the total hours played per group for any game will always be rotating since it looks at the last two weeks.

EDIT: And after over an hour of refreshing, I complain, and it looks like it just came back. See kids? When you complain, you get what you want.

EDIT 2: Scratch that, it's still up and down.

So this may just be a small annoyance, But does anyone else hate when you launch a game and the default resolution is super small mostly because it is a older game like with Quake. And it ends up resizing your Steam window and so you spend like minutes/hours trying to get it to the exact same half size you had it before but it never turns out right.

On that note, everyone should hassle Steam to offer Corridor 7. When most people were playing Doom, I was stuck with Corridor 7. I was pretty young back then so those floating eyes were pretty scary. Apparently its set in 2012, pretty sure the game was accurate with its prediction.

It isn't even just older games, I have had this very problem with many indie titles. Granted I run dual monitors, but I am really tired of indie titles that don't play well with common video settings.
