Turok General Discussion / Re: Turok Timeline
« on: May 30, 2020, 04:46:49 PM »
I did a thing and made another one. Wasn't sure if it warranted a new thread, though. I present to you: an in-depth (and exhaustive?) timeline of events as they relate to Acclaim's Turok comics.

This thing cost me eight days and roughly four major headaches, so you better look at it, lol.

I played through this the other day, and I wanted to say good job! The atmosphere of maps 3 and 4 was amazing. Wouldn't have minded map 3 being longer if there were a just a bit fewer deadmen. :P  The lighting reminded me of what I've seen of Shadowman.

I also gotta say that I completely cheesed the third Sister fight by activating the door and then jumping back across the moat. I could shoot her and she could shoot at me, but she never moved and I could dodge, lol.

Turok General Discussion / Re: Turok Collection
« on: April 21, 2020, 09:24:45 PM »
I good long forever ago, I promised that I would post pics of my collection here in the thread. I have finally come to deliver, lol.



Most of my games. A couple of the others were grouped in other images. And after all was said and done, I re-uncovered my boxed copy of Seeds of Evil, so that's here if anybody cares.



Four Color Comics 656
Turok, Son of Stone 40, 96, 100, 118, 130
March of Comics 378, 399, 408
Golden Comics Digest 31

And then I forgot that I had one tucked into the back of other comics, so here's Dan Curtis Giveaway 5.



Turok: Dinosaur Hunter 0-23, including an extra #1 just because.



24-47



Yearbook, Turok: The Hunted 1-2, The Original Turok Son of Stone 1-2



The Acclaim Turok comics
and here's the magazine comics because they wouldn't fit



Dark Horse Turok, Son of Stone 1-4
The Turok, Son of Stone Archives 1, 4, 7, 8



Dynamite Turok: Dinosaur Hunter 1-12, the first two TPBs, and a TPB that should've been in the last pic



Dynamite Turok 1-5 and TPB



Dynamite Turok 1-5 and an Acclaim variant that I forgot because it's a running theme



Strategy guides



It's a grab bag! We have:

The Turok Reader series (plus the variant "Seeds of Doom" cover for book 2)
Loose manuals for Dinosaur Hunter and Evolution because why not
Comic Shop News 558
Acclaim Adventure Zone 1-3 (2 has a Turok story in it is why it's there)
Signed copy of Turok: The Empty Souls variant



Nintendo Power vol 113
Game Informer 69, 106
Previews July '96, January '98



PC Dinosaur Hunter (and 3dfx version)
Turok: Son of Stone movie and TPB
Turok: Evolution GameStop preview copy
Turok 2008 dog tag
Turok: Evolution button pin
Turok 2008 demo box and also hat
Turok trading cards
Turok and Turok 2 Limited Run soundtracks
The French Turok albums
Playmates' Turok LCD handheld
Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion N4TKER15 beta
Seeds of Evil and Rage Wars hats



Two Nintendo Power posters
A Seeds of Evil shirt in bag
The Playmates Turok statue



And here's a thing that I'm pretty happy about. This is the concept art for the statue's box. It's colored pencil on the waxy paper, and it's taped to some thicker card stock-like stuff.

Not pictured in the above are another copy of the Acclaim-made Turok 2 strategy guide and a copy of the Prima Turok 2 guide that doesn't have the stickers in them. I also have the action figures (all out of box because I was 8 years old), but they're in storage elsewhere.

Somewhere around here, I have some of the Valiant trading cards and some pins, but they seem to have disappeared when I moved a few years ago. They'll turn up, I guess, and if they don't, it's not like they were too rare or expensive. :V

Turok General Discussion / Re: Ideas For New Turok Game by Nightdive?
« on: February 28, 2020, 09:48:28 PM »
Thread necro because I had an idea at work today.

One of the random things that seems to circulate through the internet when regular people discuss Turok is the fact that Joshua Fireseed had an uncle, Carl, who was the previous Turok (I dunno why this fact is so prevalent considering it's comic-exclusive and not brought up in the games at all, but I've seen it a bit).

So in the Acclaim comics, Carl becomes Turok when Joshua's dad disappears. But in the game continuity, his dad doesn't disappear; Joshua's parents were killed in a car crash when he like 15 or something.

So I say let's have a Turok game where you play as Carl that does one of two things: either

1. The car crash was a targeted hit by the Dinosoids to take out the Turok lineage, and Carl takes up the mantle for vengeance-related reasons (this assumes Carl is the younger brother like in the comics). Or

2. The crash was still a targeted hit by the Dinosoids but instead meant to demoralize Carl, who in this would already be the current Turok and would then go kill stuff for vengeance-related reasons (this assumes Carl is made the older brother and also that the Dinosoids are pretty stupid to think that this plan would work).

I imagine the player starting in Oklahoma City and having to fight Dinosoids to track down whoever/whatever would give direction to whichever part of the Lost Land the Dinosoids are currently inhabiting. The Dinosoids would be a large force, well-armed and  organized. It could even be the game version of the Amaranthine Accordance, so I guess kinda like the Sleg army but with more ridiculous sci-fi tech and an equal amount of religious fervor. Unfortunately for them, Carl dismantles their operations in a less-than-peaceful manner. Could maybe be an explanation as to why the Dinosoids so willingly join with the Primagen a few years later: they're not as strong as they used to be.

Included among whatever the weapons would be are the Timefire arrows. In the Lost Land, they work like regular arrows, but on Earth, they immediately transport the enemy to the Lost Land like in the comics. This rids the player of an immediate threat but has the potential to backfire on them at a later date in the Lost Land levels if they transport multiple enemies. Not sure how limited these arrows would be, because they're kinda OP but ??????

tl;dr
1. Play as Carl Fireseed, seeking vengeance against the Dinosoids that killed your family
2. Dinosoids are organized like the Sleg w/ crazy weapons
3. Levels both on Earth and in Lost Land
4. Fancy Timefire arrows that can permanently remove an enemy from an Earth level but deposits them in the Lost Land to fight later

I had initially taken the reference to selling weapons to Araissi to mean that they were also based in Araissi, but looking at it again, that's purely speculation on my part. The timeline has been updated to remove this. Thanks for the catch!

Heh, I kinda just guessed on her age. The strategy guide puts her at 14 when her father is killed, but that's it. It's very helpful, lol. Since the text doesn't use any language that implies a large amount of time passes (think decades), I decided that she's probably close to Joshua's age. Again, purely speculation, but I needed to put the entry somewhere. :V

Turok General Discussion / Turok Timelines
« on: September 15, 2019, 10:17:14 PM »
So I have no idea exactly how many people would even find this interesting, but a couple of weeks ago, I decided to do a thing. I present to you: an in-depth (and exhaustive?) timeline of events as they relate to the Turok video games.

https://turok.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:Operative_lm/Turok_Timeline_-_Acclaim_Video_Games

I mentioned it in the opening paragraphs, but I'll repeat it here that this timeline only concerns the main, non-Game Boy video games and their officially published supplementary material. That's the manuals, strategy guides, and websites. Any bit of story from a magazine or gaming website, even if it was from a developer interview, was not considered for this project.

I'm willing to answer questions if anybody has them, lol. :V



EDIT 5/30/2020:
For those just joining us, a quote from a post down below:

Holy hell. I'm honestly surprised to see this after all these years. It looks like it was uploaded just a couple of months after I had stopped looking for it, too. :V  Thank you!

If you don't mind my asking, which magazine did you find this in?
