Graphics soooo bad, they're good!

This actually looks kind of fun. I hope the trailer isn't too jizzed up.

Fuck me! Do you remember 'first contact' with its voxel magic and strangely empty world?

Ulukai? Ulukai, it is you!

Such an impressive game in so many ways, and also how the voxels meant that even if you did have a shiny graphics card (3DFX back then maybe?) you'd still get shit framerates.

I heard pretty bad things about this remake, but for the price of free, I'm in.

I never even heard of it. Trailer reminds me of original Star Trek series crap FX.

Yeah, I watched the trailer for the original first and almost decided to pass on it, but the sequel looked way better (though still pretty lame). When that came out I was playing Mac games such as Bungee's Marathon. Then I got a job where I had a pc with a TNT card and started playing Tribes at work. That was a fun multiplayer game because of all the crazy cheats. I had too much lag to get into CQB so I hung on the periphery with a laser sniper rifle. I went by the nicks "backshooter" and "Elvis" (typing "Thank you, thank you very much!" into the running dialog console whenever I killed or got killed). Once in a while some dudes would come looking for me and I'd have to run waaaay out, often getting lost.

I feel a new thread coming on.

The first game I remember playing that used Voxels was Vangers. Some strange top down driving/racing game. Can't remember what you actually had to do in it though.

Oh, I think that was a proper example of Russian weirdness. I never did get to play it though. Delta Force was another voxelly game I think, and Comanche something-or-other helicopters.

I didn't realise it was a Russian game. Looking at some videos it's more weird than I remember. I think I tried it out multiplayer too. Can't remember if it was split screen, or on a LAN.
