The Descent 3 50k Tournament...

Post by Nightshade » Fri Feb 05, 2016 12:46 am

The sound is crappy and so is the video (late '90s analog video), but...after nearly 17 years, footage has been found:

oh man, my old friend "fo0" at the 8:32 mark... he's actually the reason I found the DescentBB. Met him at college orientation, found out we both played Descent, and I showed him KoolBear's level archive and spotted the DBB link.

Damn you guys are old. :P

It forever blows my mind that Interplay once shelled out $50k for this tournament.

Did they make everyone use that controller configuration? That would have been a deal breaker for me, as everyone laughed me out of the building while I made a fool of myself trying to play with it.

Yes, that is another player. I have never played D3 multi-player (or D2, and only 20 min of D1 after Rebirth was released). I'm a single-player guy and my name is a generic one I've used in a few different games.

However, I do remember that tournament and wanted to play in it, but knew I would get my ass handed to me.

Actually, once again to go through Descent1-2-3 with 1-5 mates in a coop mode, it's quite fun and interesting :)

Ah. So you're a FAKE Vision. Ha! :wink:

I guess all of the old school players have left us.

After all these years holy smokes. I remember asking Fatal several years later if he'd blown through all that cash - He said he hadn't :twisted2:
Thinking back, D3 must've had a huge budget and on top of that: a 50k tourny.

I was; what? Ten years old then?
And I could only play the games on Trainee, and I'd played D1 for five years without beating the first boss?

I mean, I thought I was good at it... I was a little bit vain at that age. :P
