Good evening all.

For tonight's tale I thought I would break out an old favorite of mine - Undying.

To those that may have missed it over the years, Undying is a first person shooter based on a storyline
written by horror master, Clive Barker.

As I think back I find it safe to say that Undying is probably the most enjoyable FPS I ever played. I can still remember playing it when it first came out and being impressed by the quality and how it was strictly a single player experience when most games in the genre had switched to being primarily multiplayer.

Unfortunately though, despite receiving many positive reviews, just not enough copies were sold to warrant a sequel. A pure shame.

Many people who have played Undying before have complained about the storyline, (specifically the ending which seems to come out of nowhere), and the first time I finished it I agreed with them. After several playthroughs though, I discovered that a good chunk of the story is actually contained in the journal entries, (written by Mr. Barker himself,) which I had previously only skimmed over. Reading them more closely gave me a better understanding of the game events.

So for those interested I will post these entries separate from the videos as most of them contain large amounts of text.

Another feature of Undying that was unique to FPS's at the time (and still is I believe) are the custom death scenes with almost every creature type. These are pretty sweet so I will included them as well on the side.

Also for the sake of completion I will be finding all of the secret items, scry points and hidden rooms.  Death Disco? 

So sit back, relax, and try to hold onto your head...
