Id Software bundle sale on GOG

Postby toneddu2000 » Thu Nov 05, 2015 5:49 pm

I really cannot understand why old ID games are still so expensive nowadays (Quake 3 gold at 18,00€ :shock: )but, at least, for 44 hrs from now they will be less expensive!!

This probably is a good way to have the whole bundle at a reasonable price!

Yup. Too bad I already bought all of them on Steam, but OTOH it was really in a inexpensive bundle (like this one).
I know FrikaC made a cgi-bin version of the quakec interpreter once and wrote part of his website in QuakeC :) (LordHavoc)

75% off right now on GOG.

Do the Quake/Doom series come with modernized engines or must users find one in the community?

I think the last one. They come with dosbox setup iirc. But, that's not a problem. DoomsDay engine it's just few clicks away from here.. :)
And for Quake, I mean,.. probably the greatest problem is that users have too many choices (but probably for a very "nostalgic leap in past days" I'd use yours)!!

Basic angular 3D spaces work better than complex shapes or curves to get a sense of 3D, so Doom maps work well. I played some newer stuff (which can get complex) but also Oblige maps. Takes about 10 minutes to get into it, and headache after about an hour. :lol:
