    So... Podcast der Toten?

    PDT was very fun but also a labor of love. At first we used a free program called “Pamela” that allowed you to record the Skype calls, but the quality sucked and we didn’t want to buy a program (more on this in a sec). From there, I would put it into Audacity (free editing program) and boost it up/add effects/whatever. After we decided to ditch Pamela, I had each PDT member download Audacity and taught them how to record themselves - then they would send me the audio tracks separately. This proved to be exceptionally hard to line up given respective latencies for each member. The final solution which worked best was to simply use a 2nd computer. I created a 2nd Skype name “Grillmic”, which would join the conversation and record all parties onto one track.

    Blackout Zombies

    @Boom115 it’s a bit jarring at first. You have to get used to the concept that you are never safe, and that an enemy player could literally be hiding behind any tree, or door. You also have to get used to basically disregarding all of what I just said, because if you play too conservatively then you’ll never get very far. The thing that really hooked never about PUBG was the teamwork. When you have a fun team, it doesn’t matter if you win. Solo is super fun too, a nice challenge. If you want to get right into the action or are looking for a quick game, you can drop into a popular spot. If you want to play conservatively there are a million places to land that are remote. In general these battle Royale modes encourage creativity, and they often play out in unique scenarios - which is why each match feels fresh.

    Blackout Zombies

    @Lenne I’m excited to get my hands on this tomorrow. Been following some folks playing on twitch. I’ve been playing a lot of PUBG myself, you kind of have to embrace the chaos and thrive in it. I equate it to gambling - mostly luck with a dash of intuition and skill. Good headphones are a must. in terms of map design I’m excited for some familiarity. Coming from PUBG (which looks like PS2 era graphics sometimes and has stale reused textures) it looked way better, but I’ll report back when I get some hands on experience.

    Airing Grievances.

    Hey dudes! Touching words, meh. Reminds me of a lot of the posts i made before I was staff (in a good way). I was the producer of PDT while trying to revamp the YouTube. The #1 issue was always getting the community’s to participate. Considering the community is so small here now, I’d reckon it would be difficult to attempt to get new active members through a medium that has essentially surpassed ours (YouTube/Reddit). that being said I’m all for fostering the remaining kick ass community. I like the idea of catering to those that stuck around, rather then catering to some jerk who thinks we are JUST an old dusty museum.
  5. The thing is, for what it's worth, they've cultivated a brand. Bringing out the O4 (am I old because I don't refer to them as the "primis" group?) is like bringing out the greatest hits; it's a safe bet. 3arc tried to take a chance with TranZit - and a lot of BO2 - look where that left them (weaker then a nerfed Sliquifier - seriously guys, "verticality" is your best selling point? I'm pretty sure we got that with Tetris). I'd love new characters, but I'm not surprised the O4 are making a comeback. BO3 zombies was much more commercial success all around (see: inclusion of the O4 and p2w), so get ready for microtransactions aplenty and a revamped <s>Dr Magorium's</s> magical gumdrop machine.

    What's up with User of the Month?

    ALSO also (also) we could just make it bimonthly maybe? Until traffic picks up? UotM(s). Just a thought. I'm happy to help work this out as well, in terms of sharing judging responsibilities or whatever.

    What We Want: Treyarch Zombies 2018

    ^^^^^^ this a thousand times my dear numpty. Would it be too much for to ask for just a straight up zombie map with no buildables, no parts, PaP behind a door, and a sidequest that doesn't scream at you to complete it? Who's leg do I have to hump to get an EE that doesn't prompt you to start it on the first f***ing round? The Call of Duty Zombie community is absolutely brilliant, and in that fact we can appreciate subtlety as much as complexity - we don't need this bullshit hammered into our skulls over and over every new map that there is a secret quest. WE F***ING GET IT, a standalone tower defense game doesn't jive with your marketing anymore so you have to amplify the fact that it is more then just a side mode. News flash, it didn't jive to begin with. It's always been a mode apart from the mainstream What I have seen, I don't know about all of you, is a systematic dumbing down of the overall complexity of the zombies mode. It seems more important to find a modern yet retro nostalgia cast then to actually focus on replayabiilty. It seems more important to focus on what parts you need to get to the next step on Round 1, then just f***ing enjoying Round 1. Don't tell me I have shit to do, I know I have shit to do - this is zombies... and here's the important part, IF I DON'T KNOW then eventually I will learn from other players what to do. It's honestly part of the magic, learning from people. I never knew there was anything more to zombies until someone showed me the EE on Ascension, my mind was blown. Yes, Yuri gives you a hint at the start, but it is nowhere near as specific as the directions given in zombie maps now. I'm rambling. It's quite simple (to me, at least - but I'm just a dude so what do I know): have your Origins (loved), have your TranZit (technical difficulties), have your Die Rise (vomits in mouth), but give us a Kino. Give us an Ascension. Give us a spooky throwback that doesn't rely on any mechanics past BO1, when the formula was intact. There are so many zombie survival games out there, all I want is for it to be the game it was. We don't want a copy of a copy of a copy. /endrant also hi.

    If the original post (from 2011 - and through the years) could see what it's become, it's kind of like a multiverse in itself. Welcome back :D Where would you like this thread moved?
  13. Just needed a good regeneration, that's all.
