  1. Apogee Software has announced that Rise of the Triad will be returning to PC later this year, a title which is sure to evoke nostalgic feelings for gamers born somewhere between the height of Disco music and Dolph Lundgren's metaphorical……

    I could be wrong, but wasn't this the first game in which you could dual wield guns?
     
  3. The graphics looks good but the realism(physics) is bad. Did you saw how the man splits to two when he got shot??? Come on ( sry for the spelling mistakes)
     
  4. This was most likely the most epic FPS in the way old 486 days for me. it was soooooo coolback then.

    I also put down $1000 00000 it will be allot better than the last Duke Nukem.

    That's probably less about physics and more about just plain old fashioned over-the-top gore. The original was a particularly gory game for the time.

    I bet you're right. Duke Nukem *did* set the bar pretty low though.

    It seems like this is going to be a lower budget title. At least at this stage in development, that screen shot with the hands infront of the enemy... I could not tell what was in his hands. The propotions and-or scale seem to be out of wack a little.

    Of course it is an upgrade from the original that I used to enjoy. Hope they do the same with other classic FPS games like Blake the series, in which, when you kill a bad guy he yells "medic!" which never got old for me. hahaha

    @Guest, the last Duke game was crap, so there's nothing to see or compare there.

    I wonder if the name Rise of the Triad rings a bell with a large portion of gamers, probably not. But either way, it's cool they are reviving this, it brings memories from the shareware days of Doom, Hexen, Blood, Duke3d...
     
  11. it also brings back memories of modifying the autoexec.bat and config.sys files...omg 90s tweaking
     
  12. hmm that name sounds familiar but somehow I never played it.
    I thought I played almost all the apogee games (mostly in shareware form) guess I somehow missed this one. Guess I've got another game I have to play then.

    mmmm oldschool fps goodness

    Ahhhh this is such a classic, brings back so many old memories. This was one of the first games I played (along with Doom and Duke Nukem etc). Will have to keep an eye on this one!
     
  14. Apogee was king of games back in DOS days, I remember playing ROTT (I think I still have the original someplace) as well as Duke Nukem 1,2 (side scrollers) & 3D, Commander Keen, etc. Fun days indeed.
