Wish my computer wasn't busted right now =/. UT2K4 is one of my all time favorite games, though a lot of my time was focused on instagib ctf.

A couple I forgot from yesterday.

Chex Quest

I remember getting this in a box of Chex in 1996. It was one of the coolest things I thought I had ever got with my breakfast cereal. It was a total conversion game with the DooM engine. I remember it being pretty fun, and I still hve the CD around somewhere.

YES! Chex Quest was great in that it was my goofy childhood introduction into the FPS genre. Last time I was visiting home, I was going through some things and came across the CD. Installed that shit and killed some time. There need to be more hilariously illogical engine conversion cereal tie-ins. That was a genre waiting to happen!

Yeah I know right? The whole cereal themed video games thing seems like it would be silly dumb fun, and that is what Chex Quest seemed to be. Not only that, but those animated videos within the game were awesomely ridiculous. By the way, they went on to make a Chex Quest 2 in 1997 and Chex Quest 3 in 2008 but were digital downloads only. The fact that Chex Quest 3 is a game that came out in 2008 seems crazy to me. But obviously the games do seem to have some fan base, as there are quite a few mods and expansions that have been made for the games.

Fury 3

A 3D space shooter type game. I remember that it had a Descent kinda feel to it, but with more open areas.

Monster Truck Madness 2

BIG FOOT IS DOING IT...IN THE AIR. Man, I sunk some hours into this game in multiplayer on MSN. With lots of custom trucks and tracks and rumble arenas, this game was always a blast to me.

  • The Peace Keepers - Old beat 'em up game. My friends and I played it a lot.
  • Maximum Carnage - Spiderman beat 'em up. I played this a lot.
  • Aliens Online - An FPS game that came out on a pay to play game network way back. I loved this.
  • Delta Force - A modern military shooter that had large scale maps. Before Battlefield's time.

Just a couple I could think of, and I forgot a couple as I was typing lol. Guess i'll post again if I can think of them.

[EDIT] Oh, also...

Not sure how good these games are, and some might be awful, but they are a few I remember playing.

Snowboard Kids - Kinda like MarioKart, but with snowboards.

F-Zero X - Futuristic racing game.

Battletanx - A tank like deathmatch type of game.

Buck Bumble - At least play it for the intro music lol.

Gauntlet Legends - I guess not a great game, but my friends and I put a lot of hours into playing it as kids.

DooM 64 - Because DooM.

Killer Instinct Gold - Some fighting game...dunno, just remember watching my friends play it.

By the way, if you do end up playing Superman 64. Be sure and tell us how awesome rings are once you are done playing. ;) hah

@Bass: Yeah, I believe you are right. I've play through twice now and I didn't see their names anywhere.

And to answer the original question. About the only thing I watched or saw about the game was the first Building the Bastion, and a couple minutes of the quicklook, so I never really followed it to begin with. The art style and the way they told the story is what got me interested. Although when I saw the gameplay in the quicklook, it looked to flow smoothly and in the end is what had me sold.

I fucking hate the name of the band.

Beat Hazard, you can find it on Steam or on XBox live, under the indie games. It's a dual stick shooter with lots of bright colors, explosions, and god damn if it isn't trippy. Although, I will say that it uses music to determine gameplay. So you would maybe wanna load up your XBox or PC with some electronic music, which isn't necessary but I think they intended it to be played with electronic music.
