Title: What stupid things have you done in a Turok game?
Post by: AbyssalDragon86 on November 08, 2015, 04:21:07 AM
Hopefully this thread hasn't been done yet, but I haven't seen one...

Anyway, what's some real dumb things you've done in a Turok game?

-

The other night I was playing the Death Marshes and 2/3 ammunition dumps, I died while escaping. I know it's been a while, but I still know how to play this game. xD

I had the brightness at normal (I love the dark ambiance) when in the past I would've kept it high, but I was running blind into a wall/box. Flashlights/Flairs don't work on the emulator but it was a stupid way to die, none the less. The second time I kind went the other way, when I should've just used the map to follow the way I came.

I'm sure you all have much more funnier noob moments, though? xD

Cant really think of anything... Maybe this counts?
I died like a 100 times in the Turok Evolution flying levels. The controls are unbearable.

Thats not so nooby. Speaking of the word nooby, it doesnt make sense with this topic.
Noob = Newbie. Nobody here is a newbie in turok. It would make more sense if it would be called "Stupid things you've done in a Turok game?".

I know what the word means and it was meant to be more of a "what noob thing have you done as an experienced player?", kind of thing.

Anyway, I changed the title seeming it sounds misleading even though it wasn't meant to be.

Sometimes I forget the Purr-Linn are immune to the Cerebral Bore in Turok 2 and wonder why the damn thing won't fire.

Literally every time I play Turok Evolution I get the Next Weapon/Previous Weapon buttons mixed up and cycle the wrong way when trying to get to a certain gun.

I don't always miss ledge jumps in Turok Dinosaur Hunter, but when I do, It's because it was a huge gap and I forgot that side-jumping covers more distance.

With the people I know on a multiplayer, we use that word a bit. Even though I've been playing it for a few months and I'm much better, I still do a lot of stupid things... Things only a noob would do. xD

The laws of physics in the Turok universe deem strafe jumping an efficient way to travel much faster. :P

Yeah, the Purr-Linn just swat the bores like insects. I forgot about that one. xD

I'm not going to lie I don't think I ever have done anything nooby honestly :D I beat all Turok games. Most nooby thing I did I would guess took place in Turok 08 xD and that was getting killed by the damn soldiers. Those soldiers have unbelievable aim imo...

Yesterday while playing The Lair of Blind Ones in Turok 2 I realized near the exit portal that I haven't gotten the Heart of Fire Talisman despite having the Eagle Feather in my inventory. I had to backtrack all the way near the beginning, only to get lost a few times and almost getting myself killed by a Guardian.

Also, I once got killed by a Campaigner Soldier or Poacher that I didn't see while taking a corner with low health.

The Lair of The Blind Ones is a confusing level. It's a pain in the butt to backtrack for that talisman, though. Even from where you get the Eagle Feather. I still do it because I'm clumsy in those lava filled areas. xD

Also, there's an ammo respawn location on the lava, so that's another reason. The only other lava I remember is in the Hive of The Mantids.

Yeah, right now I am backtracking in the Hive of the Mantids as well. I remember that there is a hidden switch that deactivate the barrier blocking the Warp Portal for the Talisman Chamber. It's been a while since I finished Turok 2 so I can't remember where it was now.

When speed running Turok 2, in Port of Adia, when preforming the water speed boost glicth in the second water puddle, which leads to the first child, I can hardly ever make a successful jump onto land for some reason. The hit box is in my way.

The first time I had played Turok Evolution in 2003, when we rented it from Blockbuster, I made it to the second area where the brachiosaurs are in the water, and couldn't figure out how to get to the next area. So I gave up and returned the game. Little did I know that I would come back to that game much later as a huge fan.

Dinosaur Hunter: I used the grenade launcher to blow up a boar to get health, but I missed and hit a tree which collapsed and knocked me off a cliff.

Turok 2: I Ran out of arrows and got killed trying to shoot enemies with a flare gun instead of pistol.

The maps are not so dark so yeah, not really useful...

The most stupid thing hum....using the grenade launcher with being to close of the enemy, just noticed i lost a lot of hp and i was near to die...the radius was bigger than i thought, not at least, it wasn't punitive.

Something I constantly do is skip past my Tek Bow to the standard one and then die because I haven't worked out that I can't fire my Tek Arrows...  Twenty years later and I STILL do that.  Drives me mental.
