[Finished] The Russian Overkill - 2.5, Vodka Strikes Again

SOVIET POWER SUPREME!

Image

So what this thing is all about?
My answer is pretty simple - hurt hellspawn with most overpowered and ludicrous arsenal in history, such as gattling rocket launchers, tank cannons, anti-tank HE shotguns, medieval maces, portable laser cannons, slamming ammo packs in monsters face, fists made of shovels, gesture-coming-true device (TM) (aka. shooting fists), super-compressed gas eruption device, jumping sticky bombs, inconspicuous superpowered revolvers, huge nuclear-powered energy cannons, gattling gauss cannons and of course - nukes (sometimes in a moment you would rather not expect a one).
This mod is slaughterish enough to be compared with Serious Sam, as monsters are mowed down in hundreds, so you surely will enjoy it if you feel going nuts after day of work and want to stress out.


There's... uh, pretty much weapons up here. Won't it be complicating to fight with such amount of weapons?
Indeed, there's more than plentiful of them. So far I've got pretty much three different gun sets. If one feels too overwhelmed by their amount, slap in the class-oriented loadout patch!

But... what if somebody wants to play this thing without hundreds of monsters? For instance, stock doom 2 maps or something?
Of course, somebody may ask - is killing 500+ cyberdemons with one damn shot isn't WAY too ovepowered? And I'll say: "Yes, yes it is!"
To counter that, I've cooked some custom difficulties. Everyone is gonna find something suitable for his taste, at least I hope it will. (If somebody want's to play hardcore, here you go - most monsters get quite "healthy". Or go for totally wrong side - total insanity with trigger-happiness, each ammo pickup giving you full ammo and being invicible all the time? As you know crowd, Communism is a powerful force!


This sounds really cool... but what about for rest of stuff, is it gonna have any maps, monsters or items designed specially for it?
Uh, mapping isn't my strong side, actually. If somebody would decide to make slaughterfest maps for it - be my guest. About monsters... I could make some, but I think they would be pretty boring and unsatisfying. Items? Well, how about quick-launch nuclear missile? (As I said, you can encounter very much nukes in this mod. Never enough nukes for me!) Or missile pod that spews out deadly, fast, homing missiles at ludicrous amounts? Or sphere which turns you into overloaded with powerups, extremely screamy deathbringer with metal playing in background? Or perhaps you would like to turn yourself into almighty pitchfork deity, with a little lack of sanity?


Is this mod making any sense!? I mean, Where's the balance? such overpower can kill the gameplay!
...Or make from it an unforgettable experience. Well, it depends on taste. If somebody wants something challenging... well, he would be surely dissapointed. But if somebody looks for some mindless destruction... I guarantee full satisfaction. :wink:

THE MOD'S NOT WORKING. I GET ERRORS, DURRRRRRR~
- If you get errors while launching, there are few options. Either you need the gzdoom beta, which you can grab here, or revise your loading order - best to load the maps first, then Overkill, then class patch if used. Ooor you are loading something with it that wasn't supposed to be mixed up with in the first place. (Or you have something in autoload that clashes with it, the possibilities are endless!)

COMBO SYSTEM
This mod utilises combo system, similar to fighting games. Each character sports a different starting armament and melee, plus some more specific traits, like running speed, damage taken, max basic health... stuff like that. Oh, and most important - melee combos! Each character has different ones. Check the details of the classes to see what kind of combos each class has. They are triggered by proper moving sequence and triggering it with fire or alt-fire. Depends on the combo.

W-Forward
S-Backward
A-Left
D-Right
Fire
Alt-Fire
Reload (Holding reload button while having melee out shows you the comboes aviable to your character.)

That's all you need to unleash super attacks!

YES.

I'm really looking forward to getting this, and even better, deluding myself into thinking I have some sort of skill when it comes to killing monsters. :P

And I'm glad you like it! I must say that I couldn't find more fitting rifle for my needs than that one.

Oh, and can some admin change my name to "PillowBlaster"? I would be really thankful.
