Haven't played this since the what, the 90's?
 
2012-10-17 05:32:55 PM  
YES! I didn't even know this was coming out. Thanks Subby!

Man they need to get the original X-com on there
 
2012-10-17 05:33:23 PM  
Stunning C... uh... Cunning Stunt Bonus!
 
2012-10-17 05:34:21 PM  
Man, this game did not age well.
 
2012-10-17 05:41:52 PM  
I wasn't doing anything for the rest of the week anyway....
 
2012-10-17 05:43:35 PM  
I just installed Carpocalypse last month when I found my old cd-rom copy while going through old piles of stuff. Still fun as it ever was. The ability to win by killing all the pedestrians is the best.

BlackPete: Man, this game did not age well.


They also did a shiat show job on those iOS controls. Ugh. Bad. Not good. Bad.
 
2012-10-17 05:47:54 PM  
I still have the PC version. Now stop driving through my lawn.
 
2012-10-17 05:54:16 PM  
Won the first race by wasting everyone! Forgot how easy this game was. And how much fun the action cam replays are.
 
2012-10-17 06:09:50 PM  
I played Carmageddon 2 to death....what a fun game. Thanks for the tip, Subby.
 
2012-10-17 06:10:15 PM  
I'd love to play Deathtrack again
 
2012-10-17 06:13:19 PM  
If love your slave labor phone, then you'll be sure to this price. Consume more!
 
2012-10-17 06:13:49 PM  
Huh. Played one race, won, screen went black. Makes pew pew pew noises whenever I touch it.

So, game's worth what I paid for it.
 
2012-10-17 06:22:57 PM  
GOD DAMN IT!!!!

I want it for the PC...

Holy shiat .. I have (I swear) been sitting here playing Carmageddon 2 for the last hour.

Ooooh...thanks. I might have to do that. So much for getting my work done.

Roook: YES! I didn't even know this was coming out. Thanks Subby!

Check out "Aliens versus Humans" for iOS. It's about as close to the original XCOM without being the real thing. I'll apologize in advance for the hours you're about to waste while sitting on the toilet.

yes! today is a good day for my ipod

"Free for the first day"

Price according to the store on my iPad: £1.49

That's because you use that queer money. WTF is a £ anyway? Limey!

/don't know
//could be the reason you have to pay
///mmm, lime! Slashies in 3's
 
2012-10-17 08:26:29 PM  
Dear Apple,

fark GameCenter!

Sincerely,
PluckYew


Does anybody, who I haven't offended recently, know how to turn GameCenter off in iOS?

Odd. Carmageddon was classified as abandonware for years. You could get it for free right in the open.

Bloody septic tanks running around waving their fabric around like its worth something. Away with you and your gnats piss beer I say Away!

That's not real money, so technically, it *is* free.
 
2012-10-17 09:04:32 PM  
Damn missed that on PC. Damn fun game once you get used to the controls. Been playing doom on my iPad as well lately along with chrono trigger. Want to get final fantasy tactics.
 
2012-10-17 09:13:30 PM  
This takes me back to the mid 90s...
 
2012-10-17 09:15:15 PM  
Where's Baldur's Gate? i thought that was up for ipad release this year.

/go for the eyes boo!
 
2012-10-17 09:16:54 PM  
But when will someone port Marathon to the PC for chrissakes!

/not including Aleph One...

They were supposed to release it last month, but delayed it until the end of November, citing some unfinished bugfixes.

DWitchiewoman: Article fails for never stating wtf Carmageddon is


"Gory racer" didn't clue you in?

/I know, that could mean quite a few things, giggity
 
2012-10-17 09:42:51 PM  
If you can hit her the little old lady with the walker is the highest scoring pedestrian in the original Carmageddon game.
 
2012-10-17 10:16:01 PM  
Really? There are 1200 similar Flash games you can play, but Apple is benevolent today and offers you the chance to play a crappy game that is worse than 70% of those Flash games. Maybe your nostalgia will make up for the rest. It's free! Free!!!

/I played the damn game's sequel for free in 1999, in case my sarcasm masked all my other sarcasm. Don't be a tool. But, hey, free!!!

//OK, if you really miss it and haven't thought about it in years, I understand. I may be a bit bitter because no one has told me how Wine works on a Linux so I've been overdosing on Flash crap.
 
2012-10-17 10:19:38 PM  
Gimme for Android, or go fark yourself.

/already picked it up on GOG.com
//want on my tablet as well
 
2012-10-17 10:42:55 PM  
Good luck trying to play it on a 1st gen ipad.
 
2012-10-17 11:25:29 PM  
So apparently the first day ends before 8:00pm Pacific time.

Abandonware isn't freeware.

It's odd how much anger the release of a free game brings out. Don't like it, don't play it.

kazikian: It's odd how much anger the release of a free game brings out. Don't like it, don't play it.


And it isn't even free...

Downloaded it and for the first time I decided to throw on the parental controls. 12+? Really. Yeah there's no penetration or language, but even when I first played this I realized it was blatantly offensive.

That said it plays a bit easier on the iPhone than GTAIII.

croesius: But when will someone port Marathon to the PC for chrissakes!

Now that bungee is out from under Microsoft, I really wish they would redo the marathon trilogy into the modern era of game design.

Durandal is just too damn good of a character to keep him buried in the past.

/yeah yeah yeah, halo, blah blah. Substandard story when compared to what we got through text terminals in the marathon games.
 
2012-10-18 01:36:55 AM  
Huh, Marathon trilogy is on App Store as well, free.

Yup, that just killed my weekend plans.

Hmm, really? I thought it was strongly implied at least. The abandonware sites don't seem to have any issues at least.

That's because the rights holders that could sue are out of business or not supporting the IP.

It's not *legal*, but there's also no enforcement.
 
2012-10-18 07:55:57 AM  
Nostalgia only goes so far. Playing it again, it is a bad game. The controls and control of your car are awful and I forgot how really rather easy the game is.
