Some new old media

Post by Willis »

A couple new scans have been added to the repository.

First, the 8.5" x 11.75" Blood II poster that had previously been mentioned in another thread that is similar to the insert in OUWB

Image & Image
click for a larger image, or for massive, see front and back

Next up, The Blood 2-page ad from PC Gamer, July '97 (the issue of its PC Gamer Review)

I'm not sure why, but phpbb won't show the thumbnail for this on, so I'll just link these.
medium & large


And lastly, we have the actual PC Gamer July '97 review on Blood
Image
and large
yep, points taken away for being too difficult :evillaugh:

If I find any other interesting stuff, I'll be sure to add it.
Coming soon: complete box scans.

Sweet. Thanks for sharing! :)

What’s that bloodied valve on Blood-1 ad? I’ve never seen it before. I thought the red handprint was supposed to represent Blood.

PC Gamer review: Does Caleb’s mortal form really resemble that of the Undertaker? Oh, probably I missed something…

Blood's original advertisements were of a rather young guy in a bathtub filled with blood. This image was also used on the back of the shareware retail box. I guess this valve was probably a part of the same photo set.

I think the Undertaker reference is pretty much just in character darkness.... I hope...

on the back of the poster, on the third screenshot where it says "four customizable characters", check out the dude in the hat, probably a multiplayer shot with an early caleb model!

Yeah, that's the early Caleb mode. It's actually the one they have on The Chosen's Caleb page.

Slighted for being too difficult? Explains why HL2 got a friggin 98, that game was easier then start.bsp of Quake. I stopped playing cause it wasnt even a difficult movie to "play".

I still love the bathtub full of Blood, I vote that that guy somehow make it into Transfusion.

Story...Story? What Story? I hate it when developers (except People can Fly) lie about this in particular!

Fully 3D modeled? Were we expecting sprite based charcters in Lithtec? :roll:

"Improved" flaregun? :reallymad:

Seems like they did'nt set the standards very high for Blood-2, to begin with.
