    Things in modern gaming that you dislike

    Hyper-realistic graphics. Although I appreciate high-fidelity graphics to an extent, they stopped impressing me once they became capable of depicting a reasonable level of realism in a polygonal world. I miss the more abstract artistic styles that resulted from working with limitations with older hardware. They inspired the imagination to fill in the gaps, and had a certain charm and character that I don't feel that much with modern titles. Although I'm being a little nostalgic, I just don't see them as a priority, and a potential detriment towards maintaining a balanced game development effort. If there is sufficient manpower for eye candy, then I'm all for it, but not at the price of refined game mechanics and bug quashing vigilance.

    (Fun idea) Spell out the sounds from Doom

    The Revenant's missile launch and 'whoosh' can be vaguely imitated by saying "around Hugh".

    So, how old are you ?

    Old enough to get a better deal on car insurance.

    Your dumb Doom habits

    I'll often try to incite monster infighting in order to conserve ammo, however constantly going into close quarters with them usually ends up costing me health, making it a somewhat pointless action. There also times where I'm in situations ill-fitting for rockets, but I have no choice but to use them due to obsessively using all my shotgun rounds to save the rarer ammo types for when they're really needed.

    How do Doomworldeers deal with general stress?

    Long bike trips through lush nature, aromatherapy, eating dark chocolate, meditation. Latter has easily been the most beneficial for me.

    What to play after Plutonia?

    The CHORD series, at least from what I've played of them, seems to offer a tight, knockabout styled gameplay reminiscent of Plutonia. Small, though precarious encounters where each monster is significantly relevant as to their placement and levels that don't drag on for long. It's a step up in difficulty from Plutonia, though it's a cakewalk compared to something like Sunlust.

    Post Your Guilty Pleasures Here

    Though my favorite films consist of sci-fi, documentaries, and anything by Tarantino, I'm also quite fond of chick flicks, and I find the more competent ones to be inexplicably entertaining. Clueless and Legally Blonde are easily my favorites in the genre. Though I certainly favor the former, the latter has somehow got the distinction of being my most viewed film of all time, partly due to a few months' period in my youth where I would watch it every day after school.

    Your favorite final boss in any game?

    Ganon, from the Ocarina of Time While the boss didn't bring anything new to the table difficulty wise, the build-up to, presentation and atmosphere of the fight was top-notch.

    Just had a partial eclipse from my location. I found the gradual darkening of the environment to be much cooler than what I saw through my pinhole projector.

    The "stupid mod idea" thread

    Monster upgrade pack: Pain Elementals get a 50% chance to spawn another Pain Elemental. The same goes for their death, meaning you may never get them out of your hair when encountered. Archies can resurrect monsters from previous levels and summon them to your immediate vicinity. It hardly attacks now due to its persistence in doing this. Inescapable Revenant rockets that can dodge enemies, travel through teleporters, and open doors with ease. Arachnotrons can sneak BFG balls into their stream of plasma, complete with tracers. Hitscanners can eat the remains of their fallen companions, which instantly fattens them up into mancubi. Cacodemons are infinitely tall again. Go underneath one and you'll be instantly assaulted by a series of chin tendrils. Every key/powerup pickup has the chance of spawning three Chaingunners behind you. Monster spawner cubes will attempt to telefrag you.
  11. Farscape being cancelled after the cliffhanger finale of its apex season was pretty rough. Although it was somewhat made up for with a short miniseries wrapping things up, it came only after gutting and stripping season 5 down to the bare components necessary to conclude the plotline.
