What stupid things have you done in a Turok game?
« 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.
"I am Turok, Son of Stone! Turok of the Kiowa-Apache! Turok, the Hunter! I won't forget these things, nor will I forget how to use my weapons: my bow... my brain... my knife! However, I'm no fool... I'll keep the gun, too."

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...
