Oh, but there's no fun cheating in Basewars...no challenge, and it's too easy...

...tho it would be faster to get those Doom Vultures through cheating...:P

I thought that was kindof the point of cheating.  :P

Except maybe if you're turning on the super-speed mode on D1. I, for one, believe you should be given more points for using it rather than be called a cheater and have all your points deducted.  ;)
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

Yea, its more fun that way. I would consider "Astral" a cheat though.  :P

O. Right. That would kind of rule out the primary gameplay mechanic on which Descent operates.

Cheating is pointless, takes all the fun out of the game. NOT fun. The only exception might be during level development, to get more quickly to areas you are working on.

There are times when you desire to strive for greatness, to nobly overcome adversity and honorably achieve lofty goals. Then there are those other times you just want to blow $#1T up. “GABBAGABBAHEY”!  ;D

I don't consider a walkthrough cheating, it's more like a hint. But I agree, only after a lot of trying without a hint.

Walkthroughs are good really only when you've lost all hope (very easy to do in many Nintendo action-adventure games).

But I remember playing through Zelda: Majora's Mask the day it came out step-by-step with the Nintendo Power Player's Guide That was when I was 12. I began playing through it about a year ago again without that and had so much more fun with it... I remembered very, very few puzzles in it, so the game forced me to think really hard about stuff. Then I got stuck at that dungeon that you can flip upside down and right side up and haven't touched it since.  :P

That's how "cheats" came about, you know. Little secret codes the game's developers used to quickly get through parts of a game to get to the parts you're experimenting or testing with. Originally, rather than taking the time to get rid of them when they're done developing, they left them in. When players started finding these codes, however, it rapidly became a tradition to include "cheats" for every game, whether or not they were actually "needed".

Some games simply do not have cheats. They are replaced by.. "THE DEVELOPERS CONSOLE!!" Thats really fun, if you know all the functions of the game, you can do really cool stuff.  :P
