I have some really fond memories of playing through Gauntlet on the NES. "Red Warrior needs food, badly!" it would warn, reminding all of us that the Red Warrior player SUCKED. "Red Warrior, your life force is running out!" Then the annoying heartbeat-esque sound effect would kick in. Jesus, Red Warrior, get it together!
"Someone shot the food."
Hammerwatch rekindles some of those great Gauntlet feelings, except with online multiplayer and a custom level editor, and without charming sound bites to demean its players.
