Re: The Alphamatic (Version 2 + Marooned Over Mars Expansion)

I don't know that there's much you would need to censor in Atroxian Realm outside of the corpses in the Kridonea Ruins levels, which border on Bio Menace levels of gore, but I can understand. As an adult, it's pretty tame, but if I were a little kid playing that mod, I might have had a hard time wit...

Re: KeenWiki on a new server

I noticed that database error thing, too. It's been a problem since last Friday. I figured it was something that would've been fixed pretty easily, so I didn't bring it up here, but it sounds like it's a bigger deal than I thought.

EDIT: The errors are fixed now.

Re: My keen childhood "trauma"

The first time I saw the Dopefish, it freaked me out, because it was so much bigger than the other enemies...up until it ate a Schoolfish, and then looked at the camera and belched with a derpy expression, and then it became a lot more endearing. To me, the scariest enemy was Robo Red. It was also a...

Re: keen 6 and keen dreams

Why did that version ask for that, anyway? Copy protection. The enemy names in Keen6 were probably not widely known back when the game was first released, and a lot of them sound very nonsensical, even for this series (Bip, Babobba, Blorb, Gik, Fleex, and so on), so the names would be impossible to...

Re: Neutrino Burst Injector

When I say an enemy is "cheap" what I mean is that they get in cheap shots on you very easily. Think of the Vorticon Elites, and how easy it was to get sniped by one. Shockshunds are just that. True, they have one less hit point, and their projectiles can be stopped by your weapon easier t...

Re: Neutrino Burst Injector

Neutrino Burst Injector as a level was always a weird one for me. Me too. It's the backgrounds, I think. Also, it's the only level on easy difficulty to have a bouncing Slicestar, which is quite a wakeup call. Brings back memories of the giant Jacks in Keen3 and how dangerous and unpredictable they...

Re: Neutrino Burst Injector

I played the game on easy mode first, so my first encounter with the Shockshunds was the horde of them in the last level, the only time they showed up in easy. They weren't very hard to take down, especially since you're given tons of ammo, so my initial reaction to them was amusement. In harder dif...

Re: Playing through Keen on Twitch and Youtube (Recommended Mods?)

Check out Atroxian Realm, though you probably shouldn't attempt to do the whole thing in one sitting. The Ruin of Roib is good if you're feeling especially masochistic (don't be afraid to turn on God Mode if the difficulty gets too extreme). The Terror from Outer Space is a simpler, shorter mod than...

Re: The Alphamatic (Version 2 + Marooned Over Mars Expansion)

I've been looking forward to this one. :) Hopefully it's a little more balanced and less punishing this time around. Looks like its Keen Wiki page needs an updated link, though. EDIT: Also...4-5 hours for one level? :O I can beat the entirety of vanilla Keen 5 in less than half of that time. Can't w...

Re: Commander Keen: Sunset (K1 mod with new game mechanics)

Has anyone done gameplay video of this yet? :D There's a lot of great reactions to be had here. Even if it's just raw DOSBox video, it would be very cool (and entertaining) to see how people first react to the new environments. And I'm sure KeenRush especially would appreciate the live feedback. ;)...

Re: Commander Keen Collection (floppy disks, mail orders etc)

Ah yes, a CD. An ancient technology that many speak of only in hushed tones. I've merely heard tales of it, myself.

There's no point in signing it now. The reboot's already cancelled, and this petition is beating a dead horse.

Re: Commander Keen Is Now on GOG!

Is it really true that the shareware version of Keen Dreams is actually the full game? Yep. According to Wikipedia, there was originally supposed to be an animated intro and outro, in addition to "You've Got to Eat Your Vegetables" as the theme song, but the game wouldn't have fit on a si...
