Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

Honestly I would have played through by now if it weren't for steam and the dreaded 16 bit installers. I probably would have played NOLF by now as well if it were not so DirectX tied and I did not have such a great unwillingness to p*** around with WINE for anything that does not have Caleb in it. ...

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

I totally know what you mean by "forced complexity," N0t_mINe. The pressure the game puts on me to perform just right does get pretty annoying, as well not being able to carry all the gadgets that I want either. And rest assured, Tchernobog, that I have no intention for Blood III to conform to NOLF ...

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

Recently played for the first time the retail version of No One Lives Forever instead of the few demos I've played. What impresses me the most about NOLF is that it's success was born from the shortcomings of Blood 2: The Chosen and Shogo This quote from the Wikipedia article on the game explains it...

Tchernobog, you have made me feel like the luckiest Bloodite on the face of your wiki. :D :D :D

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

Here are some more fan art. http://i.imgur.com/z5zhzTFl.jpg This image was inspired from looking at the Blood Alpha. I thought of a mod idea that would re-imagine Blood with help from the Blood Alpha, but add more atmosphere to it by borrowing influences from Rise of the Triad, Quake, aspects of Duk...

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

Excellent work BEAST. The Caleb's conquest one was of particular interest, especially the use of perspective. The others hav a movie posterish feel that works. I await your fanfic, will it have any art? Thank you! :D I'm close to writing my Master's Thesis, so I don't think I'll have time to write ...

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

Here's a link a thread in The Postmortem. Just posted my old B2R art in tribute to kurt. Thought it would be more appropriate to post it there.

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

Just some?!? Why not release it all! 8) You want em? Here ya go! http://i.imgur.com/JcxqIhVl.jpg I did this back in the early 2000s. I did it when I was visiting my uncle's house in California. After watching his VHS for Tim Burton's Batman , I thought of Blood 2 , and decided to do this. Back then...

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

You're right, dosgamer000. Caleb may like disemboweling his enemies in hundreds of ways, and has no qualms about doing the same to civilians for their life essence (if you want to be THAT bad), but he doesn't regard The Chosen with the same contempt as he does the Cabal. Even though I found the cuts...

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

Unfortunately, it is an example of my tenancy to ramble away from the stated subject. My apologies, I'll get your thread back on track. At least we know the youtube linking works! :P Don't apologize for rambling. As I demonstrated in my last few posts, I have a tendency to ramble away as well. I se...

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

Interesting, but exactly is the purpose behind showing a long gameplay video from Might and Magic 9? I checked Moby Games, and does use the LithTech engine, yet according to the date, it was released in 2002, and it looks way older than that. No One Lives Forever was released in 2000, so I'm confuse...

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

I am little overwhelmed by the amount of text here, as I have not been able to write down my thoughts in the form of a written reply for the past few days, and have now fallen well and truly behind in following all of this. Still, I would now like to contribute one new entirely separate point which...

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

I like that you like Tcher's and mine's opinions. :D I find these discussions more helpful, rather than discussions which tend to be too dismissive or not thorough. I've encountered some reviews on Moby Games on a few classic games, and I find it weird how other game reviewers of my generation or ol...

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

I too have a soft spot for JK, and I recently played through it again over the summer as my main machine was down and I was stuck on an old Dell D600 laptop. I certainly find it better than JK II, which I played for the first time last June following the source code release, which was amusing but d...

Re: Influences and Ideas for a BLOOD 3

You are a hell of a person to brainstorm with BEAST. :shock: :wink: You don't know how happy you made me when you posted this. Granted, some words were missing in my brainstorming, and there were some typos, but yeah. There's a lot that I've had going in my mind over the years. :wink: I can't speak...
