  1. Crazy how this old thread suddenly has so many recent responses. Glad to see most generally agree. I guess it's sort of obvious. Those first 4 were spectacular.
  2. I write and much of my writing is in the horror genre. I would love to be considered for the project and could send you something as a sample of my style, if you prefer. However, I am NOT a scriptwriter. Short stories and novels. So, if that style works, please consider me.
  3. I've been binging. Pretty much for the entire month and have had no decrease in my desire to play, or enjoyment. That alone states volumes. I play almost any opportunity I get, with my wife, or not. Considering the amount of games I've lost XP for, what with drops, queuing, etc., I've managed to almost reach level 50 and still love the game. Perhaps more than I did the first dozen levels or so.
  4. I think I saw something about it being a Jason mode, only. You play as him, against A.I. counselors, striving to achieve certain goals, set by the game, based on some movie situations and new ones created for the game. Assumably, that might mean things like: Kill a counselor in the bathroom, as one example.
  5. For me, a 9. I have had the most fun with a video game since Skyrim's original release in '11. Only thing keeping it from a perfect 10, for me, is host migration. I know the world is full of fools. Glitchers, whiners, quitters... they aren't going away. I can deal with them, even as I am NOT one of them. The one thing that ticks me off, however, is when the host has an issue (may not even be their fault!) and it ruins the other 7 players' experiences. Once this is fixed, I'd go so far as a 10. Another map or three would be amazing, too.
  6. I have not had these issues but! NES/retro Jason's music is seriously low in volume, compared to the others on PS4. He's literally on top of me by the time these old ears hear him! I hear every other Jason juuuuust fine, though...
  7. lol Horschack's death should have elevated it to top 3! Admins, please move this where it should be? I apologize for the misstep.
  8. Hello! Not sure which subdomain (if any :/) this belongs in. If it isn't appropriate, please delete, admins. I thought it'd be fun for everyone to list their personal rankings on which F13 films they liked, from best to least. Now, I have not seen Jason X or the Freddy one, so mine are based on the first 9 and the reboot. Here goes! 1. Part 2 . I think this one has all the elements I enjoy about the genre. Jason makes his debut, which is the only thing placing this above 1, enjoyable cast of counselors. Judge me as you will, but I could have used a moment or three of more boobs. Otherwise, perfect. Sack head always freaked me out more than the hockey mask. And the reveal was excellent! 2. Part 1 . The film was gritty and when I first saw it I was surprised by the ending. Other than the lack of realism (even for an F13 flick!) what with Pamela's kills, it's as near perfect as a slasher gets. 3. Part 4 . I expect this to be most people's choice. It's an excellent addition to the franchise. Probably should be number 1, in truth, but I have a soft spot for the first 2. Hey, I'm 45 years old... what can I say? Feldman's final scenes were boss. 4. Part 3. I recall seeing this in the movies and even then I thought the 3D effects were cheesy af... But, otherwise, it's a solid entry. I rewatched a few times over the years, even as recently as 2 weeks ago, and it holds up well, despite the forced perspective for those 3Dkills. 5. Part 6. I struggle with ranking the rest, as there's a real separation for me from those 4 above to the remainder. I think this one wins out as best of the "worst", though. I like this Tommy well enough, certainly better than Part 5's. Nowhere near as much as Feldman's, of course. I also struggle with the fact that they made Jason so supernatural and, well... weird, going forward. But this was the first in that new direction. And I think still the best. 6. Reboot. Other than making Jason a feral woodsman, fast and agile, I liked this one. There was a good group of victims, well-rounded tropes. Girl next door, hot chick, stoner, jock (also a stoner) "hero", big jerk, etc. The more I think I about it, the more I a waffle between moving this up a spot. It wasn't perfect, by any stretch, and could never approach those big 4, but I enjoyed it more than I think most did. A couple of humorous parts helped, too. 7. Part 7. The last of the ones that I'll likely ever rewatch (again). Tina is ok and I like that there's a scumbag to root against, but the film, overall, is as mediocre as it gets. But hey, Russell and that Chad sweater, right? 8. Part 5. We're getting into the films that I didn't care for as much, now. This one, for me, suffers from the direction they took with Tommy. While I understand many/most of us would go crazy from his experiences, I didn't care for how it was handled. And the fact that Jason's involvement, was... shall we say minimal? did not help. Though I still would love a Roy Burns in our beloved game here... 8. Part 8. I wouldn't say I actively dislike this addition to the franchise... It has some redeeming elements. Some interesting kills, a couple of "likable" characters... But the boat and the streets are no place for Jason. As tired as it may be to be set in the woods and cabins, that feels like F13 to me. Not the Big Apple. Well, the fifteen minutes of the city it's set in anyways. In totality? Bad. 9. Part 9. Wow. Well, I watched it. Once. Don't really need to say much more than this. As I stated, I have not braved X or Freddy's, yet. So... what say yous?
  9. A middling to awful slasher, from '82? Riding the high wave our buddies Mike and Jason created.
  10. In game, I typically play as Adam for counselors and part 9 as Jason. But I've been known to mix it up every few matches, just for those giggles. Thanks Mars! Wait.... Madman Marz!??!?!?!
  11. What's up, everybody? My wife and I play on PS4, side by side, essentially. We enjoy dying together, near as much as we do living together. Please don't let that stop you from inviting us. I promise. Given the opp, I'll slay her first. Hit us up. We're in our forties. We don't cry, we don't quit and we don't tk. Kalydor RubyZen Now I'll list some really random likes, just for giggles. Things that bring me great pleasure. Good music. On vinyl, preferably. From Ayreon to Prince, RJD to Blood Ceremony. Sabbath to Tom Petty. Maiden, Priest, KISS, Uncle Acid. George Strait, Bowie. A hundred thousand others. Board games. Descent, Formula De, Mage Wars, Imperial Assault, Ys, Ra and Caylus. Retro crap. Pinball, Wacky Packages. Movies. Conan the Barbarian, Breakfast Club, Young Frankenstein. TV. Arrested Development, MST3K, Cheers, Taxi. Video Games. Skyrim, Civ V, F13 (aduhhh)
  12. You made a point in there about grip strength and composure gaining importance. I think therein lies the issue if other things then don't get tweaked. Or else poor composure counselors and weak grip Jasons will be picked far less often, I imagine.
  13. Hmm. Splitting hairs here but I think that's Michael Myers' iconic head tilt. :/
