    Top 5 Star Trek Episodes

    Five is tricky, but I'll do my best (but am counting two-parters as one): The Drumhead (TNG) Chain of Command (TNG) Tapestry (TNG) All Good Things... (TNG) In the Pale Moonlight (DS9) Wow... this is super-TNG heavy, but I like DS9 more as a whole. In the Pale Moonlight is one of my favorite episodes of TV ever, though, so there's that, I suppose. OS and VOY both had some really good episodes, but I'm not sure I'd put any of them in my top 10, let alone 5.
  2. Only one pwad is needed to no longer be considered to be a poseur, and that is end1.wad
  3. When I was in the early stages of discovering new wads, HR13's blue key trap murdered me a few dozen times for sure. That's my first memory I have of really feeling stuck

    Doom Streams

    Very self-indulgent (and likely short) stream for Doom's birthday as I try and put a mental hurdle to rest. Playing Unholy Realms and talking about influences, ideas, and a shitton of self-criticism: https://www.twitch.tv/snakesyafilthyanimal

    Awful news - hurts that much worse when it's someone so young. My condolences to all his loved ones.

    Yo, why didn't anyone tell me this song is so good?!

    Possible goodbye to lootboxes?

    Read the Ars Techinca article on this and the whole thing focuses on age groups under 18, which is far from a majority of the gaming community, and quite frankly, something parents need to lock on down as opposed to the government (or they need to follow Belgium and define it as gambling). The language also feels far too broad to gain any real traction in its current state. Also describing it as "monetizing an addiction" is a ridiculous notion. I get that microtransactions and lootbox designs in general suck big floppy donkey dick, but the idea that gamers don't enable this shit by constantly buying into it is kind of laughable to me. If you don't like the practices, don't support the product. I know it's challenging because something you get excited about is suddenly saddled with bullshit, but if gamers want to see any real, significant change, maybe they should bite the bullet and pass on the latest hot-shit title instead of expressing outrage, kinda-sorta settling/caving, and then forgetting the whole ordeal when the next new hotness comes about.

    WADs to 'Git Gud' with that also look good.

    Scythe isn't pretty per se, but it has a great difficulty curve with a third episode that will really test with only a pair of slaughter maps (26 and 30). Scythe 2, though you may run into a wall starting at Map23. The first 22 have a good difficulty curve that gets quite challenging before transforming into a rather brutal wad towards the end. If you play these back to back, then you'll kind of quietly grind your way up in skill without even noticing it. Plutonia 2 and Plutonia Revisted are both quite difficult while staying true to the original's style of difficulty (and both are slightly harder as well). Valiant changes/replaces a lot of the base monster behavior in the game, but it's gorgeous and only has one or two slaughter-styled maps while remaining quite the challenge.

    First Doom fan site(s) you ever found?

    Visions of Doom Not sure exactly how I came across it. I think I was trying to find a site with sad reviews to figure out what the β€œbest” wads were and that popped up. Got me to try out Memento Mori, and the rest is history. So, y’know, thanks Andy
