• Praxis posted a message on the post Types of Roguelikes.

    This was an interesting read, though I'm a bit mystified by the distinction between 'Classic Roguelike' and 'Hacklike.' Admittedly, I've only ever played one such game, DoomRL, but it seems like that ...

    @snail said:There's a lot of productive discussion going on in this page, but until Jeff authorizes an official style guide, the unruliness and oddball eclecticism of the wiki will prevail. No matter...

    @hailinel: To be honest, when I played Zero Mission I didn't really have a problem with the Zero Suit since I figured it was a one-off thing. It wasn't until I played Prime 2 and I realized that ZSS ...

    I had a similar moment of heartbreak when I realized that Retro's version of Samus Aran had been dropped in favor of Zero Suit Samus. Metroid Prime, for the first time, didn't make Samus disrobe for n...

  • Praxis posted a message in the forum topic Trying to Articulate My Problems with Kingdom Hearts. on the Kingdom Hearts board

    I was originally pretty excited about Kingdom Hearts because it seemed like filling a JRPG with Disney characters would be the perfect way to prevent the narrative from taking itself too seriously. T...

    Doom Travelogues 10: DoomRL

    In the absence of a QuakeRL, I suppose this cameo will have to do.I can’t really tell you when I first came to be aware of Kornel Kisielewicz’s Doom, the Roguelike. It most certainly wasn’t in 2002, w...

    Doom Travelogues 09: Deus Vult

    2004 was a pretty solid year for Doom WADs, which is not exactly a surprising development given the state of things. With years of mapmaking experience to draw from, design sensibilities were, by and ...

    Doom Travelogues 08: Hell Revealed 2, Part 3

    Another week, another set of levels. Or in this case another subset of the same group of levels I’ve been playing for the past two. Let’s start that again. Hello and welcome to the third and final wee...

    So in ten years' time he's produced a two-minute trailer. I foresee a Mordeth Award in this man's future.

    Doom Travelogues 07: Hell Revealed 2, Part 2

    Welcome to week two of my ongoing misadventures in playing WADs that may or may not be too hard for me. Last week you may recall that I started playing Hell Revealed 2, the sequel to probably the most...

    Doom Travelogues 06: Hell Revealed 2, Part 1

    1997’s Hell Revealed is one of the few Doom fan creations that you could honestly argue has been as influential within the community as any of the original IWADs. It is not hyperbolic to claim that ma...

    Doom Travelogues 05: Everything Old is Still Old

    It’s not hard to understand why there are so many Episode 1 replacements out there. It was the shareware episode. It was played more than any other, and it has the most nostalgia attached to it. I’ve ...

    Doom Travelogues 03: Yucatáns & Pentagrams

    And so it ends with a whimper. I finished this whole “10 Years of Doom” business this week, wrapping it all up with the RTC-3057 demo (despite the full release being available. I know, I know). Turns ...

    Doom Travelogues 02: Dark Corridors and Other Scenic Venues

    It’s been an eventful week of WAD playing here, much more so than the last in terms of the sheer number of WADs under my belt. Believe it or not, I’ve gone through twelve in seven days, and while a fe...
