>Mortyr isn't the worst game ever made, it just seems that way while you're "playing" it. Maybe that isn't clear enough: Don't buy Mortyr. If someone offers to give it to you for free, it's a trick and you should run. To put things in perspective: As released, S.I.N. was a huge ripoff due to an amazingly thorough set of game-killing bugs. But later, at a bargain-bin price and after a few heroic patches, S.I.N. got a little itty bitty bit better. This same thing is not going to happen to Mortyr, because its awfulness runs deeper than just bugs. Instead of following the industry standard of half-creating a game then releasing it with a bunch of crippling errors, the visionaries at Mirage Media have made Mortyr one giant, non-specific bug. If you see Mortyr running on your PC, you should consider your system crashed on general principle - as designed, the entire package is misguided and bad.

>In every review of KISS: Psycho Circus that I've read, the author makes a point of distancing himself from KISS. Everybody's too cool for KISS. Where was all the disaffected hipness when these same jackasses were praising Goldeneye, a game that forces you to pretend you're Mrs. Doubtfire's Pierce Brosnan? I say, if you're going to go through all the trouble of hiring a lawyer to license KISS, you might as well suck it up, act like a fucking man for once in your life, and put KISS in the game. Instead, all Psycho Circus contains are lots of itty-bitty coy references to KISS. Trouble is, (1) the word "KISS" is in the title, and (2) the box has a picture of KISS on it. In other words, the man wearing the cat makeup is out of the bag. The time for being bashful about actually putting KISS in the game is totally and completely over. Trust me when I say that nobody who pays money for a game called KISS is going to be upset when it turns out to feature a lot of KISS. And if they are upset, well, I'm speechless - after I call them a retard.

Unreal Engine was made in '98 (and updated slightly in 99) you mong

I think it would be fair to count "engine" as a platform for PC games - in this case Infinity Engine, Lith Tech 1/2, idTech 3 and Unreal Engine 1 games would count as retro and thats fine by me

This doesn’t seem retro. When was build 420 of unreal engine released? Looks like it used the unreleased unreal engine 2.0 SDK too.

>> No.5444868

>I think it would be fair to count "engine" as a platform for PC games
In some cases that may make sense, but it cant be a universal rule because 'engine' is a loosely defined term and engines themselves evolve. Eg, most big games that use an engine modify the engine code to some degree, so how much modification is too much?
People like >>5444841 want to draw lines via builds, but you can even draw lines on the same build used (modified) by different games.
The other side of the coin is that stuff like darkplaces is an entirely new engine compatible with Q1 assets, but its still on-topic here because people use it to approximate a game from '96, but it's also used for new games (eg, wrath aeon of ruin).
There should be more clear rules, but the reason there aren't is probably because it's a hard to come up with a good rule around PC games, and mods just use discretion around what 'feels right' for a particular thread.

>> No.5444886

That's still UE1 version that was used in UT'99, UE 2 did not exist in any way until ~2 years later, and definitely did not exist when development of Undying started.

There are very few dedicated game engines that were around at the change of the century, so we can just name them: Infinity Engine, UE1, Quake 3, LithTech 1/2 (barely) and a few others.

DP is a "quake compatible" engine that was entirely made from scratch to comply with GPL, and it was after 2000 so it definitely does not count. A game unrelated to Quake on this engine (like upcoming Wrath) would be completely not retro.

Usually differences between various "patched" versions of the old engine and a completely new version of an engine are fairly easy to spot. UE2, like UE3 has a very particular way of drawing special effects and lightmaps that make it quite distinct.

>> No.5444908

>A game unrelated to Quake on this engine (like upcoming Wrath) would be completely not retro.
Yet there have been discussions on it here on /vr/ that mods have seen and ignored, presumably because it fit in with the general theme.
And if you restrict the definition of 'engine' to 'commercial third party engine' youre ignoring all the engines companies made for themselves and used/modified for other projects. Where do you draw the line between what is an "engine" and what is a "basecode" to work from?

>> No.5444913

They were in Doom/Quake/RetroFPS thread as part of retro FPS discussions, and mods are fairly lenient for such discussions as long as they are at least somewhat related to retrofps, and there's no dedicated thread created for it.
Like Doom'16 discussion is fine in there, but a Doom'16 thread created as such would get terminated in an instant.

It's a weird mix of oddly generic and yet somehow interesting. It keeps throwing new enemies at you throughout the whole game to keep it fresh and the enemy damage/gore system is unparalleled.
