Hey, I didn't know Aerosmith covered that song! Pretty cool rendition.
Yeah I can hear what you mean. :)

Someone actually made the connection to "Come together" before, must be the vocal melody which has a similar feel.
(unintentionally though).

Here's a song from De Staat to compare. The similarities are within the music and the groove, not the vocals:

War3d
Ratone
12 November 2009

War3d is one of those maps one group can play until morning, some places where to escape and avoid hits, damned fast map, nice movements possible for a long time fun, a classic.

Although this track was mostly inspired by more recent bands like Queens of the Stoneage and De Staat (Dutch band)
Listen to the song you posted,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlF8OEG4d4M

then listen to aerosmith's version of 'come together'.

the lead & keyboard sound deep-purple
the bass and vocals sound aerosmith

Lol! :D

Deep purple will always be an influence, especially the hammond organs.

A dream-like map that spans multiple environments.
The premise is to transport yourself out of a hub area to different locations, solve the puzzles, return to the hub, and open up a forcefield. There's no real set theme, and most areas only vaguely resemble familiar environments; one area looks a little like it might be a wing in a hospital, another sections looks like some kind of mud and ooze flooded industrial plant. There's what looks like an empty warehouse basement, and there's also a rather nondescript maze with walls of assorted textures. Generally everything is gloomy and done in shades of browns and greens. Even though most areas are pretty boxy, and the author has a thing for ventilation grating and fans, it's decently detailed out.
Game play is mostly about finding switches, then trying to figure out what unlocked. After that the player is rewarded with the key they need to open the final force-barrier, just to have to use it to escape from the dream-location they're currently trapped in. Repeat this several times until the section relents and lets the player collect the final key and return to the hub. Combat is balanced, but tedious. There are a lot of healing items, a few heavy weapons, and limited ammo for the heavy weapons. It mostly depends on which gate is entered first, but a good portion of time is spent putting hundreds of pistol rounds into aliens. More fun that organizing m&m's by color.

Overall I'd give it an 85

is that the one that triggered all the sjw's over some comment about demons being, 'soul challenged', or something like that, & they made invisible connections to say it was referring to illegal immigrants?

If sjw's hate it, I hope it sells a billion copies.

Woah, I was just browsing old Calculated stuff because I'm in a nostalgic mood and now I see this haha. :)

The band Calculated no longer exists, unfortunately. Our drummer moved to Denmark, and we couldn't find a suitable replacement for him.

However! We're still doing gigs with a new band called Tea Rex. The music is still very much Oostrum-style, but it's a bit lighter and more upbeat compared to Calculated. In fact, we just recorded an EP, which will be released on November the 16th. I'll post the link once it's available online.

Here's a recent live performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlF8OEG4d4M

You can browse the channel for more videos, there's even a Pink Floyd cover in there. :)
still sounds like something between old aerosmith and deep purple.

those two girls on the left are ugly.

Sorry for the uber-late reply. I haven't visited this site in a while.
But thanks for the comments, glad you liked the maps!

As for the 3rd part, I've been working on the Alien Armageddon mod the last few months.
And right now I'm busy with music again. So it might take a while..

But sooner or later I'll make the map. I do have plenty of ideas for it.
