When I was little (1996 - 8 years old at time), I was playing Quake 1 and each time I encountered a Shambler I used to call my big brother to come and kill it… xD I was really young and that demon always scared me xD hehehe.
De Vermis Mysteriisby Peter Szmer from the artist: “De Vermis Mysteriis – work of Ludwig Prinn, an alchemist, necromancer, reputed mage who boasted of having attained a miraculous age before being burned at the stake in Brussels during the height of the witch trials…Bloch describes the book as containing spells and enchantments, particularly those that can summon strange entities. One such spell, included in a chapter dealing with familiars, summons the titular shambler from the stars.”
And they have super sharp everything ready to tear you to pieces.
But we just need to be made aware of something:
LOOK AT THAT. THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE WHEN YOU ATTACK OUR TENTACLED FRIEND. YOU LEAVE THIS POOR BABY ALONE. MAYBE THEY’RE JUST LOST AND SCARED. IF YOU’RE IN A DARK HALLWAY, LIVIN’ IT UP, AND THEN SOME THRICE-CONFINED MENTAL PATIENTS LOOKING FOR MUSTACHE CREAM WALTZS IN AND START STABBING AND SHOOTING YOU, YOU’D BE PRETTY UPSET TOO.
Did you know that canned bananas are a thing? I was already weirded out by those pre-peeled, canned new potatoes, but canned bananas takes the cake…or pancake I guess.
But I was thinking about canned bananas because in season 3 of “Zombies, Run!,” Sarah Smith reminisces about the banana pancakes she used to make her boys before the apocalypse. While it may be a wee bit more difficult to get ripe bananas in England after the end of the world, with all the canned goods you (as a runner) pick up I’m sure you’re bound to find some bananas. We all know the Shamblers only have a taste for meatier things. You won’t even have to share them!
When I picked the name “texelstorm” for this Tumblr, I firmly had Quake in mind. A frenzied, furious, gritty, lightmapped, mipmapped, perspective-warped world that lived behind the thick glass of my 13" CRT monitor twenty years ago.
Many hours I walked the cyclopean halls and cold corridors, past lava and slime and through slipgates and teleporters. I danced with thousands of Ogres and Demons and Shamblers and Vores, bounced multitudes of grenades around the impenetrable brush surfaces, unleashed hailstorms of nails through the nodes and leaves of each map’s BSP tree.
Twenty years after its release, Quake stands as the stark, hideous, scifi-meets-fantasy-meets-industrial foundation that first-person gaming rests on — and it’s still a bloody great game to play! id Software, please make Quake Champions as great a tribute to the Quake series as Doom 2016 is to Doom.
