@peacebrother: Yeah, many times I tried getting used to the "d-pad", but just couldn't. =(

I've finished it on the Switch. Really unhappy about the analog controls for dashes. The game should have an arrow or something to show where you're aiming, it asks you crazy precision and with the analog stick you don't have any feedback for the direction you're pressing whastoever. I would only recommend playing it on the Switch with a Pro Controller, on the d-pad.

I think you're better off picking up Wolfenstein 2, the parts you liked about the first one are way better in W2, and having played on the PC, the difficulty didn't bother me so much.

@dudeglove: That's what I thought. Especially knowing the exact time frame it could have ran. But nothing still.

The fact that tons of people told me they remember seeing it for sure in magazines such as PC Gamer UK, EGM, CGW and the fact that I've searched all of those way past and before the possible time window is making me really start to question reality and everything I once held as truth.

I know I saw it at the time, and I'd swear it was in either EGM, PC Gamer or GamePro. I was going to suggest PC Accelerator, but in looking it up, their first issue was in '98, so that's unlikely. (also, jeebus, PCXL in hindsight... any younger folks reading this post: Think about that infamous PSP licking photo, except that was the whole fucking magazine. That and terrible "humor". Not everything about gaming in the 90s was great)

Edit: Just flipped through a scan of PCXL #1, and yeah, no dice. Also, fuck, it's worse than I remembered. I love poring through old game magazines, but I intentionally avoided most of the writing in this. Yeesh.

I went through the archives of all of those, some multiple times by now. I'm really starting to wonder if it ever really happened.

Hi! I'm looking for a hi-res version of the infamous "John Romero's About to Make You His Bitch" ad in magazines from that time, but I just can't seem to find it.

The book Masters of Doom states the ad ran in all major publications in April 1997, on Romero's website he says the ad backfired and they fired the marketing guy, Mike Wilson, in December 1997. I searched every big game magazine in that time window and couldn't find it. I've looked upon CGW, PC Gamer, Next Generation, EGM, GamePro and a few others.

Am I missing something?

Does anyone remember seeing it in a specific publication?

As a Brazilian and having only played Overwatch localized to Portuguese, I can attest to the quality and care that went into it. Something really rare to see around here, actually.

Lucio in particular speaks with the appropriate slangs and streetwise that a Carioca (someone born in Rio de Janeiro) would. Here's an article about the voice actor and the process if you're interested, Chrome's english translation seems pretty good.

Weird! I played it alone and had no problem whatsoever with your complaints! I actually loved the game!
