I wonder why he didn't bring that up. When I heard it was Trent Reznor who composed the Quake soundtrack, while I was playing that game on the N64*, it blew my mind!slo said:He forgot to mention all that lovely ambience by Trent Reznor, that you only can hear if you own the CD version.
Or if you run it through quakespasm and happen to have the music files in some other format.
It almost feels like a different game with the ambience on. The horror aspect becomes much more noticeable.
Yes, I too remember the Ogres, who can all GET FUCKED. It took me, like, 20 grenades or rockets to kill one, and a hell of a lot of nails from the Super Nailgun. Because the vanilla Nailgun just wasn't Nailgunny enough for my Nailgunning needs.ephesus64 said:I do remember experiencing awe at the atmosphere and the character design as I played it for the first time years ago. "Okay, I'm barely alive, but I think I'll make it thr-AHHHH IT'S SOME KIND OF ELECTRIC POLAR BEAR BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE A FACE IT'S JUST A BLOODY MOUTH". And then I died.
After that I mostly spent my time in god mode, noclipping through walls. Oh, and looking at the graphics settings and wondering what kind of magical box could ever run that game at 1280x1024. Maybe one of those Pentium Pro 180 mhz computers could do it.
*Good god, I feel old.
