Weee, trippy dream
outdoors, maybe on the level with all the cliffs, sorta. There was a beach, but the body of water was a lake
. I remember pulling up the map and it was an oval, like a track
, where the field was water, and the outside bleachers were cliffs and mountains and such.
I was running from a grouping of someone. (As opposed to something, not the monsters
from HL, or the soldiers, but not deranged scientists
either.) I had objectives to complete, god knows what they were, but i had ten "minutes", gaming minutes
, to complete them, which was plenty of time for running long distances w/o stopping. Motion was controlled like in HL, no visible steps, but i could here them, it was like i was hover
ing. The only gun i had was an old, like civil war era
, flint lock gun. I can't remember the name for the life of me. It was long, it was bulky, it would give away my position
, i dropped it off a cliff while crawling across a bridge "crouched" so they
couldn't hear me.
I love how crouching removes any sound
from my footsteps, walking removes some, and running is loud
. They couldn't see or hear me because i was crouching, i love computer metrics
Either way, i was running into the hills to start some form of detonation sequence
, there were 4-5 relays
i had to trip, then run back to the begining of the level, do something
, and get to an exit point
. Either way, by the time i reached the begning and did whatever it was i needed to do, it became a waking dream. I dropped down the console-map, saw where the exits were, and the timer. Uh oh. i had ~00:00:45 left to get across the level, and make my way into an exit. This wouldn't have been so hard on auto pilot, but suddenly i was in complete control. I still had hover motion
, so that was good.
I found an exit, and guess what it was? Remember Duke Nukem 3D
? My fist even did the cool motion into the radiation
sign that his did.
Ah yes, the bridges and ravenes were made hard, i was at one point able to pick off one party via sniping, i don't know how with that big clunky, non-aiming gun. But then once i threw it away (i missed a shot) it became hard. Couldn't be seen, would mean certain death. I didn't have a weapon, not even the standard crowbar. How sad
. Oh well, that sapped 5 minutes of my time now that i think about it.
