Re: Hello, thanks for the mod, and FANART!

Damn, I think you managed to capture the feeling of the characters perfectly. Your style fits very well with the feeling of the mod. You even managed to capture the feel of Deus Ex. Awesome job! Good luck with your game development aspirations! I'm in the same boat, except I'm a modeler. It's a long...

Re: Would you rather exist or not exist?

"Thou shalt not kill. Unless she didn't scream loud enough while being raped. Kill that whore, she was obviously asking for it." I believe the original reasoning behind that was having to do with being raped specifically in a city. Obviously if you live in close proximity to other people you'd be a...

Re: Would you rather exist or not exist?

Hm, I do see the justifications in the city-rape. I think Chris is right, it's more a sign that Yahweh's an jerk. But it just goes to prove that morals as given by God are a long-shot from God's Perfect Benign Word... And I do remember it being 'thou shalt not commit murder.' Which is funny when you...

Re: Would you rather exist or not exist?

On the subject of the topic: I'd rather exist. I'd have more appreciation for non-existence if I, at one point, existed. I wouldn't appreciate it while I didn't exist, but I'd appreciate it while I did! On the subject of God/Religion/morality: There is no good or evil, just as there isn't always a r...

Re: How do the other forum cities function?

Does anyone know of ad blockers? Pop-up blockers? Any of that ring a bell? No? Too bad, I browse 99% ad-free, AND I can block images and annoying flash things that are NOT ads. :D I use Firefox, and I advise everyone with something other than Dial-up (Nothing is going to help Dial-up...) to either ...

Re: High Brow TNM Reviews

Meh, you're always bound to get those kind of reviews. Unintelligent, yes. But worth getting up in arms about? Nah. There will always be those who can't play a game that isn't "ohmygodsupernextgenbloomwowawesomelooking." Anything short of a trillion polies is far too low-poly for some of these peopl...

Re: The Matrix, or .hack//SIGN as influence?

Wait, similarities between TNM and ****ing ANIME!!! AN OUTRAGE I SAY!!! Seriously, Anime sucks! (In my opinion) At least TNM is not anime themed :D As much as I dislike most anime and tend to gravitate more towards conventional western-themed comics and such, I have to disagree with your grouping o...

Re: The Music Thread

Iced Earth, Sabaton, and Rammstein are my three favorite bands, probably. Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Motörhead, Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer, David Bowie, Alice Cooper, Pyramaze, Dark Moor, Winter's Bane, Beyond Fear, Primal Fear, and Wuthering Heights are among some of my more preferred bands. But y...

Re: End of an era..

Deus Ex modding will probably have come to an end due to how redundant the engine is getting and how bored we all our with its features- if you're using outdated technology, game development can become a tedious task of "why the hell am I even bothering". That's why projects like HDTP and TNM and t...

Re: Whats Next?

No, good graphics are for jocks. We will make an RPG version of Tetris with unparallelled character interaction detail and meaningful long-term consequences to your actions. I can see the cutscenes now! "T-Block, I love you! I want to spend the rest of my life with you!" "Fuck off, L-Block! You're ...

Re: John Q Pierce

Ah, damn. :lol: I was kind of hoping there'd be a bit more to read. Either way, it definitely fits with the general decor of the place. It kind of caught me off-guard to see such a reference and an interesting, less-gruesome/taunting version of Jack somewhere. Such a shame. Thanks for the quick repl...

John Q Pierce

Alright, I may be setting myself up for a dumbass-moment here, as I haven't played the entire mod yet. But I ran across this book while in the voodoo shop. As it mentions two of my prominent interests (urban folklore and serial killers), I was curious to know if there is anything more to this little...

Re: First Impressions

Just realized I never actually posted a review yet. First off, I keep forgetting that the game is a mod and not an independent product. I'll see something like the Hitman posters, the various CDs, etc. and it'll take me a second to realize that you all can 'get away with it' because it's a mod and y...

Re: End of an era..

We're pretty much done with modding, sorry. We'd like to move into independent game development now. No surprise there, really. Modding is a good way to get started and all, but if you're going to be dedicated to getting into the industry, I can't imagine how much it would suck to have to spend the...

Re: End of an era..

Sure, modding may be dead, but the lessons learned from Deus Ex are still strong. Well, in my seven or so years on the DX scene I've seen a number of mods finish, a number of mods start, and a number of mods start AND also finish. Not die: finish. Yes, people are still starting up DX mods even this...
