  1. Glad I'm not the only Gaga fan here. I also like Metallica, so if no one ever posted this, here's the dress rehearsal where Hetfield's mic actually worked.
  2. Audio on this is a bit weak, so crank it!!!!!!
  3. Be adventurous. :)
  4. My favorite platform port is DoomAttack for the Amiga. It's very fast and it has freelook and jumping. ADoom was also pretty good, but slower. It allowed resolutions up to 1600x1200, which was hilarious on old 68K Amigas because it resulted in a 1 fps slideshow. ;D Fave source port is GZDoom. I love GL rendering and the non-intrusive HUD, and it handles just about everything. I'm starting to use PrBoom+ a lot more because of the Ironman League and the need to make demos. I'm liking it more than I used to, but can't see it supplanting GZDoom. Risen3D was once my fave GL port until I went over to GZDoom for its monster and secret counters. When I play Risen3D now, it's because I want extra pain. Risen3D seems to have the most player-hostile RNG and auto-aim of the ports I use. This bumps up my death count and overall feeling of desperation on my extra-masochistic days. ;)
  5. An old favorite PC demo by the German group Farbrausch. Has a jammin' track by paniq.
  6. That's a good question. I'm guessing that at a minimum they were loaded into RAM for precalc, thus not true realtime generation. They have a lot of tricks. ;)
  7. The Black Lotus is perhaps the most legendary Amiga demoscene group. This demo, ranked 1st in its category at Assembly 2006, was meant to be their farewell to the Amiga so they could move to more powerful hardware such as the Playstation Portable and PC. They eventually came back, though. This particular demo requires an Amiga 1200 with a 100Mhz 68060 accelerator. The slight hitching you see is the result of the A1200's DMA being a little too slow to handle it. The scene where the view pans back from a crow's eye influenced a scene in the PC group Andromeda Software Development's "Lifeforce" demo in 2007.
  8. Of course, she totally nails it.
  9. Obviously the best, most TYRANNIC version of this song, when they still had Fast Eddie and Philthy Animal. Great job on the fan video at getting close to syncing it up from a different performance.
  10. Second to last spam post for today. Hey, I'm making up for lost time! ;D
