    4 Wolf or Bethesda News Items


    1. Rage 2 Announced

    Rage 2: Announce Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7eXH25_KC0
    Rage 2: Official Gameplay Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rQMytyBFeA
     
    The first Rage game was in 2011.

    Rage 2 is from Bethesda Softworks, ID Software, and Avalanche Studios.  An asteroid hits Earth in 2185 and apparently humankind splinters into tribes.  I don’t know what country the game takes place in, but some of them are European-looking punks somewhat like in The Mad Max movie.  Watching the official gameplay trailer, there are so many people on the screen shooting at the same time, that this reminds me of Quake or Unreal Tournament.  Watch here where MrMattyPlays is explaining that the protagonist is using an energy push, which seems to remind me of a Heretic magic move.

    2.  Thread for selling Wolfenstein related games

    The Wolfenstein twin pack and other Wolfenstein games are for sale for at least $3.00 here.
     
    I don’t know belgarath1, but he has some Wolf auctions.  He has 100% positive feedback.  His items show that he lives in America and will ship to America.  You have 3 days to bid before the auctions end.  One of his auctions is for The Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: The New Blood twin pack edition that I didn’t know existed.  Another auction is for The Wolfenstein 2009 game.  Another is for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.  These are the PC versions.  Shipping for everything is at least $3.00.  He also has an auction for a non-Wolfenstein expansion game, and a lot for a Game Boy Micro black with a charger and 3 games.

    Edit on May 24: I checked back and it's sold.

    On a personal note, it’s OK with me if you want to post something for sale mostly related to Wolfenstein, Apogee, 3D Realms, or Bethesda Softworks into this thread if it’s to somebody with 100% positive feedback, nobody is offended, and you either later delete the post when it’s no longer for sale or put strikethrough through the text when it’s no longer for sale.  I’m not offended if nobody else is offended.  Just don't have an argument when somebody else gets the winning bid or do something like that.

    3.  Fabiana’s Wolfenstein Cultural Fan Fiction

    Fabiana and/or Juan Alejandro are Spanish or Portuguese speakers who posted her cultural fan fiction of a Wolfenstein Timeline onto one of the 2 Doomers United Facebook groups.  I can’t believe that in 2017 that this got lost in the shuffle of my notes.  It’s been so long that I’ve forgotten her last name or how to contact her.  I’ve heard that an English speaker wrote that the man from Doom is Stan Blazkowics in his fan fiction and that Billy Blaze from Commander Keen is William Blazkowicz’ grandson.  Fabiana's text is 13 pages and the font size is 20.  It’s interesting.

    It’s creative, but don’t take it too seriously.  I’m not going to pretend that I understand all the nuances of the culture, language, and verb conjugates.  I don’t mean to be superficial, but I think that I could be making 1 or 2 translation errors.  Or Fabiana could be making 1 or 2 misunderstandings of German.  I had heard from somebody who doesn’t joke about this that you can’t dot every “i” and cross every “t” in reading an English language Holocaust book because some German accounts were translated to French and then to English.  I don’t know about how it works with translating German into Spanish or Portuguese.  Cross-translating reminds me that I can find about 5 mistranslations in the English New Testament because the apostles’ work was translated from Aramaic or Hebrew to Greek and then from Greek into English.
