Re: What bands or musicians do you listen to?

NIN and Depeche Mode are definitely bands I need to hear more of (not that anything's really been stopping me recently...). My first exposure to NIN was listening to "Germs" by Weird Al Yankovic and learning that it was a style parody based on "Closer" by NIN. Checked out a few s...

Re: What bands or musicians do you listen to?

Definitely seeing a few familiar names through Syllypryde's and Benvolio's lists, including A Perfect Circle, Tool, Metallica, Slayer, Rob Zombie, Pantera, and Slipknot. Most of those artists would have songs featured in my 'top 100' for the past year. I'd be adding Megadeth, Iron Maiden, and Judas ...

Re: Strife Forever (unrelated to the game "Strife")

I'm a bit late to this post, but just wanted to say thanks for posting! It's been a while since I've thought about Strife, but I was a big fan back in ~2001 - 2005. Since then, I remember occasionally searching for an archive or something of the strips but don't think I ever found anything, so it's ...

Re: Korath III problem

K1n9_Duk3, that is probably one of the most interesting things I've read about Keen's inner workings in a long time. I had no idea the difficulty level affected the gravity in the game (and of course the impact that has on the Korath III fuse). One of those things I've probably seen a hundred times ...

Re: Crystal Caves HD remake confirmed!

This looks really cool!

A new episode, level editor, soundtrack! Achievements are a guilty pleasure of mine, so excited to see how they'll look too.

Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

Never would have thought I'd see another Commander Keen game after GBC, regardless of format. Also just noticed the everclear powering the Bean with Bacon Megarocket in roobar's screen cap. Neat. Edit: I've been reading some of Tom Hall's thoughts on this (on Facebook). It's a real shame Tom didn't ...

Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

Was definitely not expecting a new Commander Keen game. Not sure how I feel about the gameplay, will probably have to actually play it to really make up my mind. The announce trailer was pretty cool though - whoever was behind that has obviously been paying attention. Family photos shot has a photo ...

Re: Did you know Jill of the Jungle also had a Bible-themed mod?

I've heard about Super Noah's Ark, but this is a new one to me. Who can forget the classic part of the Bible where a guy turned himself into a fish to swim up a waterfall to collect a level gem?! It's always fun to see these reskin\mod games (not sure what the proper term is) to spot the similaritie...

Good to see Keen (and the forum) still gets a run with all ages.

After university I worked in hardware/ system admin for some local schools, then moved into technology and software support (in house and for clients using the software), at a neat software dev company.

I always thought that was the final straw in the decision to move the community here, but reading the Computer World article above, the attack was around 2 years before the move. Was there another smaller scale attack\disruption in 2007 prompting the move, or have I just remembered very poorly?

I think I'll need to buy this.

Also the image they're using for the anthology with all the Apogee characters in it is probably the most awesome thing I've seen in a while.

If the meet up makes its way to Melbourne, let me know because I'd definitely be interested!

And Keen 4 for me.

This is awesome! Can't believe I've somehow completely missed the existence of this project until now. I always imagined the surroundings of Keen 1 to mostly be barren, desolate Mars with a few mountains and nearby domes, but I really like all the busy city things going on in this game. It kinda rem...

I'm looking forward to the game being developed by The Two Guys from Andromeda (creators of Space Quest), though I wish I'd pledged some money to them to get some of those nice sounding bonus goodies (as well as the game!). I haven't really read much about Kickstarter as a whole, but I think it's an...
