"One Unit Whole Blood" :lol: That's awesome.

Man, that's Build engine, right? I wonder if I'd still have fun with those-back in the day they looked and played awesomely. That engine had a pretty long life-last really big "fake 3D" engine, I think.


Looks great, plays awesome still, it's better than a good 95% of the FPS we see in this generation.

All we need to see is Shadow Warrior on GoG (and I believe Atari has the rights) and we'll be all set.

I still have my boxed copy of One Unit Whole Blood but that's gonna go. This is an awesome deal even though it's not on sale.

My Cryptic Passage won't run... anyone else having the same problem?

The shortcut does nothing and it won't load manually through dosbox.

Nevermind, got it to work - had to enable both admin and XP compatibility mode, I got thrown for a loop since Blood worked without either.


I think on the GOG threads they stated that too.

Same here. I didn't have a PC when Doom was released, but got one when Blood first came out and this was my introduction to online FPSs. I use to play this game a ton on TEN, an online gaming service. The actual game developers would jump online with us players and would take recommendations on gameplay changes that they later implemented in game patches. I remember the game came with a music video on the game disc done by Type O Negative and just found out that the lead singer died this past week.

</nostalgia>


yep, huge nostalgia.

I do have Blood 2 and Nightmare exp, they are good too.

Yep, that's right, and IIRC it's a heavily modified version of it.

Wow, I've honestly never heard of this game, despite the reverence shown it. I think I was stuck on Diablo.

Blood (and Shadow Warrior) also added voxels for some elements.

So that's two games with voxels in one week. What's next, Hexplore?

Does Blood use DOSBox, or did they port the code?

HOLY FLURKING SNIT!!!

Another game that I once paid a lot for gets released for cheap.
Around five years ago, I payed $75 for all of the Blood games,
and their addons (Blood 1, two addons, Blood 2, 1 addon),
and they were used. I paid good money for the Redneck
Rampage games, except for the racing one. I paid for used
copy of Kingpin.

Oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy, oh joy...

And I'll assume you've seen these.

Just a side thought: some years ago, Blood 2's source was released. It can be found
on FilePlanet. It was a Windows game. I hope that nothing, legally speaking, keeps them
from releasing that.

Using the Build Engine, released after Duke Nukem. Any true 90's FPS fan should get this.. and $6 for Blood + the expansion packs = no brainer, just do it.

I wonder if they still have the source code around. They should see if M$ could
port it, like they did with Duke Nukem 3D. I'd pay $10 for that, as well as an
XBLA port of Shadow Warrior.

Oh, and ROTT.

You might want to rename your thread, the game is just called Blood. (Because as a longtime fan I was confused by your title, I know that much)

And Monolith created it. 3DRealms only created the concept in conjunction with Monolith who bought out the IP from them to create, and then release it themselves.

Blood_(video_game)

It's a decent build engine game and Caleb is a cool character, so I recommend it, just wanted to correct a few of the "issues" with the Thread title. Since I own both on CD, I don't need this, but I appreciate you posting on a game that I'm sure many people don't know much about. ;)

Agreed the title through me off. Thanks for the heads up. I love blood that whole era of pc gaming was special.
I am going to need a bigger boat LOL

I would definately buy on live if alot of these older gammes were rereleased.

I really wish someone would remake the Blood series. Some of the weapons were great. The atmosphere was too.

One Unit Whole Blood was a fantastic package. Any Blood fan would know this.

We already have a thread on this anyways.

Agreed. Just to one-up the geekiness, I knew exactly what was being discussed. ;)

Even as an owner of the original game and the OUWB, I will still get this.

I even searched too! WTF?

FML

Oh well, finally be able to pick this game up instead of bleeding thru the nose for the original copies on the bay.

What GOG needs now is a virtual bargain bin, where they put their specials.
To make it even better, as the special comes to a close, the box can have
digs and crushes added to it.

Has anyone here bought GoG's version of i76 and ran it under Windows 7 64bit?
I have (multiple) copies of i76 on original disk but I cannot get them to work after many hours of trying. :(
Even the virtual XP machine barfs up a lung on this one.
