Re: Last movie you saw

Just happened to glance at this thread as it was recently revived... as it happens The Thin Man is the most recent movie I watched, as my Dad recently bought it for me on DVD. Felt compelled to pass comment. After the Thin Man. One in the Thin Man series, with Nick and Nora Charles the husband/wife ...

Re: Total points in Keen4 entirely

Is it known who the best people at actually playing Keen are? Much more difficult to find out this information in this kind of game, compared to competitive multiplayer games. It's definitely not me anyway!

Re: The Ice Factory is about 20 years old!

Fond memories of the excitement of downloading Ice Factory - the first fanmade keen level I encountered -probably in the early months of 2001 when modding was not on the scene. Even then levelpacks for Keen1 interested me a lot more than the various fangames that existed at the time. This began the ...

That is the crux of life in general isn't it!

Splendid art though and as always I hope to see mod projects bringing these ideas to full fruition.

Re: Snow

I have played Ice-Keen and in fact it was one of the main inspirations for my most recent mod which I released later that same year (hoh garg that's five years ago almost)

Snow

Does snow make people think of Commander Keen? Or is it just me? Not sure why it makes me think of Keen. It doesn't snow much in Ireland and I don't think there was any snow at all in the years when I was getting into Keen. I was always in particular fond of the ice levels in Keen1, probably more th...

My Keening involvement consists of reading every thread on pckf, occasionally posting, and thinking "well if I ever find myself living alone and jobless/on annual leave I will make another Keen1 mod"... could happen sooner than you think...

Re: What Music Are You Listening To?

Haha Pantera was the first thing that came to my mind before clicking the link... I also love 'Forever Tonight'. Exquisite guitar from Dime on this one as always - the one thing that unifies all Pantera material from beginning to end.

Re: Planet Of Agony (Keen 1 mod)

Wow I like this!! Just realised I havent downloaded/installed any software on my computer in over a year, so you (and the people who make DosBox) should feel honoured! I like what I've played so far. Reminds me a tiny bit of KeenX. But, as it is a KeenRush mod, I feel on edge, expecting distressing ...

Re: What Music Are You Listening To?

Once again a week of on-call night shifts rolls around and Benvolio gets quite anxious. To settle the nerves beforehand he grabs a strong coffee, lights up a cigarette on his balcony and selects a few so-called golden oldies with which to accompany his pharmacologic relaxation routine... https://www...

Re: Classic cars

I love cars of all eras but actually would have far more interest in late 70s and 1980s cars. I see no reason why automobile design had to pursue a trajectory from the cars of 1990 and the vehicles we see today. Interestinly Ireland has a unique feature in its number plates where the year of first r...
