An FPS RPG in the Doom engine from '96? Why has this game eluded me for so long?
I never played this back in the day, as I was not a fan of games with backtracking like Hexen.
However, after giving the Veteran Edition a shot, it's one of my favourite FPS games. I dig the Veteran Edition for having a marker for your current objective to prevent shit like Hexen
Same. Never even heard of it but saw Veteran Edition on sale on Steam, bought it, and now it's one of my favorites. Compared to games like Duke, Quake, Blood, etc from around its original release date, Strife feels so unique and ahead of its time.
From the screenshots I expected it to be some shitty hack job of an FPS since some of the weapons looked like they were ripped off of other games. Melee punch dagger thing looks like the fist from DOOM, grenade launcher design looks like the nailgun from Quake, crossbow taken from Heretic, missile launcher looks like the chaingun from DOOM. The weapons are pretty good though.
why is there always a thread up for this? Srsly, same pic, every fucking day.
It's like someone who's recently re-released it wants to get people to know about it outside of the context of simply playing it on zdoom so that they can maximize revenue...

Just look at the way the rebels hold their guns when they walk. They're edited Doom marines.
Just played a few minutes of it to see what it's about. Seems pretty badass, gonna play through it in a few days when I have free time.
Anyone else want to give it a go, it's $1 on steam right now
It's got that 90s live action cheese that I love.
This mod is so great, if only because of the changes to the crossbow.
>Crossbow (electric): Now a useful weapon! The bolts travel faster (though in a slight arc), and will stun most enemies for a moment on impact. It also deals doubled damage to fully mechanical enemies. Due to these enhancements, a pack of electric bolts will provide 10 instead of 20.
it's just the base game with some pretty lighting effects, just launch the game with a source port that supports dynamic lighting.
pss. strife can legally be downloaded for free (under the name strife1.wad,) but you'll want to look around for VOICES.wad or else you'll miss a lot of the story.
