Download the game legally HERE. Oh, and you can freely hack/mod the game legally too, since it's OpenSource.  :D id Software are nice people.

Ubuntu Users: No need to download and compile the code. Just use the following PPA and click "Install" in the Software Center.

ppa:pmjdebruijn/chocolate-doom-release

Just for the sake of clarification, the Chocolate Doom source port does not include Doom's proprietary iwad files needed to compile the main maps and artwork of the game. Those are still licensed to Id, and they're still selling the various incarnations of the game on their website. The engine upon which Doom is built is open source; Doom itself is not.

I don't like being a killjoy.  :(

Yeah, my bad. Sorry. Chocolate Doom is simply an OpenSource remake of the original Vanilla Doom, keeping it exactly the same as the original. But if one wants to play other Wad files (such as Doom 2, Final Doom, etc.) they'd need to buy the original. Ah well, Chocolate's good enough for now for me, nonetheless. Installed it on my Ubuntu machine and works like a charm.  :)

Haha saw FF7: Advent Children Complete today. A few things:

1) Too much spirituality compared to the original. And I loved it!
2) Pertaining to spirituality, Aeris isn't just an "Ancient connected with the Planet" person, a similarity to a few Pagan and/or Earth Religions that consider Nature as their God. In this movie, she symbolically is the Planet's Spirit, and often mistaken for "Mother" (Jenova) by Kadaj. Haha, I love the concept here:

Aeris = Spirit of the Planet
Zack = Spirit and Heart of the warrior; Hopes and Dreams.

3) Cloud isn't needlessly emo like in the original movie; he has a valid reason be (or it seems so), and I wouldn't spoil it for ya.
4) Loved the last line at Zack's grave!

Denzel: Is this place someone's grave?
Cloud: No. This is the place where a Hero began his journey.

5) Watch Cloud's Omnislash in slow-mo. It rocks! You'll see things you never caught in the first play.

6) CHECK THESE AWESOME WALLIE!! (Right Click on them and hit "Save Image As" to download HD version)








Yeah, I'm a wallie expert all of a sudden. You're welcome!

So... I finished Lost Odyssey and I must say it's one of the best JRPGs I played in my life... together with the Chrono games... T_T

Xenoblade Chronicles is amazing. I want to say it's my favorite rpg since CT, but I think the huge rpg drought as of late is making me think that. It's definitely up there with the greats tho.

I want to play that one too. I doubt it will beat Lost Odyssey but I will see.  I am really hoping they bring Last Story too.

I loved Lost Odyssey, but this game is in a tier above it. Definitely get it it's worth every penny.

There's some impressive stuff coming out of the Australian indie scene these days. Take a look at this one (trigger warning in case anyone's actually been through combat situations):

[youtube]sQlkYY88wLM[/youtube]

More info on that one here. My understanding is that a bunch of AAA developers imploded Down Under awhile back, and now the released talent has started floating back to the surface and creating stuff again, enabled by distribution platforms like Steam, the App Store, etc. It's starting to make me wonder whether Oz is going to have a shot at being the world's videogame production capital, kind of like Japan was for so long.

I got wind of a new game by a friend of mine called Radiant Historia. It has, from what I can tell, the time traveling/parallel universe system that Chronos Trigger and Cross had, plus the human/beastman duality and sand motif that Sands of Destruction had. I searched the archives here and found that Jutty was playing it. So, based on what you played, Jutty, would you recommend it to me, someone who's loved Chrono and Sands of Destruction?
