Re: Random quirks in Blood

This was probably brought up in the past, but has anyone investigated the mysterious gill beast die-off that happens if one jumps in and out of the water in the first E2M9 cavern (the one opened via plunger detonator)?

Re: If you could change the way monsters and weapons behave

Some other general adjustments - Underwater gore : Floating bodies and realistic bleeding, ala Powerslave. - Bullet trails , Shadow Warrior style - Different art for underwater explosions - Optional enemy patrol routes , which could enhance non-linear level progression and add more opportunities to ...

If you could change the way monsters and weapons behave

Post ideas for hypothetically improving Blood's monsters and weapons. They don't have to be restricted to the engine's limitations--just consider what would be different in your idealized vision of Blood. This includes both cosmetic and behavioral changes. Why do I believe there's room for improveme...

Hellstorm project for Doom

This abandoned project is worth mentioning here since it's very likely inspired by Blood. It also uses modified Cerberus sprites. As the previews suggest, it was meant to be a TC with an occult/horror focus. Would only have to be a partial conversion were it meant for Blood! http://www.doomworld.com...

Re: BLOOD 18th Anniversary Special

Different modules can significantly alter the mood of the MIDI soundtrack, and this one sounds ideal.



Around 2:25, a ghastly wail begins to repeat that I don't remember hearing before. Quite amazing.

Re: What's so bad about Dead Reckoning?

Dead Reckoning is a good mix of great at the beginning, great but clunky in the middle, and mediocre at the end. Inconsistency is probably the biggest flaw, as mentioned previously. Much of its levels stood out to me very much when I played Blood for the first time. From the flickering refurbished d...

Re: Which is the quintessential Blood map?

E3M2 is definitely among my favorites and a runner-up for the position I have in mind. However, I see the map more as a "unique treat" due to its atypically energetic and frenzied setting. I am not at all trying to say that it was out of place, far from it (I think that it was pulled off very well a...

Another Blood review



Good amount of effort but it felt like he was grasping at straws when he brought up a supposed inconsistency in level themes as a con. With the exception of Dead Reckoning, the level progression feels natural and there is somewhat of a unity in each episode.

Which is the quintessential Blood map?

One of Blood's many features is unmatched thematic diversity in levels, very few of them are even close to being unmemorable. But if you were given a choice of selecting one level to serve as not only an introduction, but also an inclusive demo to Blood's content, which would it be? I lean towards B...

Re: New Monster/Enemies ideas

That is somehow a very familiar image. http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/510/326/adc.gif The inventory item also gives the idea of a "ghost diver". The Scooby Doo series accumulated a memorable bestiary. http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101225162904/entertainment1/images/6/68/S...

Re: New Monster/Enemies ideas

How well would walking skeletons fit in Blood? I remember Kurt's B2R promising such a treat. Theoretically, they can be armed with melee weapons and serve a role related to the ax zombie, or for a twist; gun-toting skeletons? When it comes to monster strengths and weaknesses, Blood adds the perfect ...
