Well lookie here, a nice little review of Dimension of the Machine, the new expansion, I haven't watched it all but it certainly makes me wanna play it myself.

I believe I have forgotten how to embed youtube videos.

Oh, that's no good!  If it affects your health I would recommend against them then.  The Ancient Gods 1 has really intense claustrophobic fights, and The Ancient Gods 2's final boss is a marauder fight on steroids.

I actually enjoyed the platforming in Eternal so that shouldn't bother me.  My bigger issue would be the Marauder fights and the new enemy encounters.  I don't necessarily mind having to use a specific weapon to take out an enemy, but I'll inevitably run out of the ammo I need, and having to constantly micro-manage my ammo as well as my health and armor to stay alive stresses me the @#$% out.  Some of the Slayer Gate challenges in the base game gave me actual heart palpitations and my vision started fading.  I literally had to stop playing and just breathe for a minute or so.

Glad you got it working!  Anything else breaks let me know.  Doom - Thumbs Up!

I would say that if you liked Eternal overall and were left craving more then they're worth getting, especially if you're a completionist.  If you thought Eternal was "meh" and don't like platforming and abusing the meathook, then you probably will find them frustrating and annoying in places.  There's definitely more marauder fights, monsters with weakpoint gimmick (Maykr angels are the worst for this), and forced weapon mod usage (Spirits and Stone Imps).

How do you both feel about the Ancients Gods overall?  The season pass recently went on sale for $15 off but I held off on buying it because I feel like id doubled-down on everything I disliked about Eternal.

Whoops! It seems I forgot to install the .99f Server Patch. Nevermind!

Hey Phoenix! I tried hopping into the FFA server, but it said I needed "pak9_VM_1" and I was not able to download it from the server. Do you know where I can acquire this pk3 file?

Don't mean to double-post.  Just forgot to add some stuff to the list.

- E2M6 now includes cut content.

- Two new DM maps have been added.
-- The Court of Death / Acrophobia from Quake 64
-- The Edge from Quake II / Quake Arcade Tournament Edition?

But seriously, if you like Quake, and you probably do since you're on this forum, you should pick this up or check out the new port if you already own the game on Steam.  It's pretty clear just how much love has been put into this thing, and if the recent DOOM remasters are anything to go by, there'll be plenty more!

Here's a huge-ass list of why this port is awesome:

- It was developed by Nightdive Studios.
-- These are the same folks that ported DOOM 64.

- It's available on consoles.
-- You can now play Quake while you poop!

- It's included with your Xbox Game Pass subscription.
-- Quake II and Quake III Arena are also included for PC subscribers.

- It includes Scourge of Armagon and Dissolution of Eternity.
-- This is true even for Steam users who only own the base game!

- It also includes Dimension of the Past and Dimension of the Machine.
-- DOPA includes a brand new secret level.
-- DOMA is a brand new mission pack altogether.
-- Both DOPA and DOMA were developed by MachineGames.
--- MachineGames is the company behind the recent Wolfenstein titles.

- You can download free add-ons.
-- One of those add-ons is Quake 64, in its entirety.

- Multiplayer's included.
-- You can add bots to matches.
-- You can play online or split-screen.
--- Online multiplayer supports cross-play.

- There are achievements to unlock.

- The whole thing only costs ten bucks.

- It actually includes the original soundtrack(s)!

- You can rebind controls and adjust render options!

- And most importantly, no configuration is necessary!


And here's a small-ass list of why it's not:

- There's no CTF support.  (Yet?)

- Bot support is limited to DeathMatch maps.

- Free source ports already exist for PC owners.

- The netcode is based on the original client, not QuakeWorld.
