Alt+Print Screen will be a weekly (depending on my motivation) screencap documentation of my game night.
Screen captures fucking rule. If you're a pc gamer and you haven't downloaded Screenshot Pilot yet, do so. Now. Last few weeks I've started documenting game night and emailing the results to the guys I game with. Figured it'd be more fun to share on my c-blog (and less work, frankly - formatting pictures in outlook is a pain in the ass).
So that title is actually a misnomer since screenshot pilot lets you set a hotkey for captures, but screw it, I thought it had a nice ring.
Just some background: I game with the same four guys every week - FyamanD, Thomasthecat, Qrnef, and ZincoBX. We have a decent amount of games in our weekly rotation, but lately we've been hammering Killing Floor, Demigod, and Sins of a Solar Empire.
Anyway, last night was all about Killing Floor. We downloaded and tried some of the white-listed user maps last night. We got Elementary School, Ganjafarm - Reweeded (tee-hee), Evilresidents, and a Doom 2 map. All of very good, and if you play Killing Floor at all I definitely recommend giving them a shot.
We started the night on Ganjafarm which, while a very nicely realized map, has one of the most ridiculous background "stories"
We found that the level has a nice two tiered fortress design that allowed us to funnel the specimens quite nicely.
But after a bit, Fyamand and I got the itch to go hunting.
With 100 enemies left in the wave, this is a slight breach of protocol. But protocol be damned! Shortly after, we faced what Killing Floor calls the Patriarch, and what we call The Bonster. Mainly because he slightly resembles Bono. So Bono + Monster = Bonster.
We stomped his ass good.
Elementary school was an ok map, functional, but not really anything special. We rocked this one too.
Same goes for EvilResidents, not the most inspired level, but entertaining nonetheless. This is us barricading ourselves into a creepy room, awaiting the Bonster. We're also doing the Bonster Dance, which is done by crouching repeatedly.
Next we jumped on the Doom stage, which proved an incredibly accurate recreation:
The stark, bland colors also make the bloodiness of Killing floor all the more apparant. I dig it.
We also double-popped a couple "Fireballs" as we refer to them. Assholes who shoot rockets at you.
We won on the Doom map, but not before Fyamand died and went all crazy-dangly in the sky.
