    Why does doomguys' armor expose his stomach?

    I'm feeling nostalgic right now.

    The tone of DOOM [BEWARE: walls of text]

    Yeah, one thing to consider is that this game came out after a slew of cult classics like They Live, Evil Dead 1, 2, and Army of Darkness, Robocop, and... Man this list could be quite large. The thing these all have in common is how serious you could take the story one moment, and then be able to step back and recognize how deliberately ridiculous they are the next moment. Fans have always been able to completely ignore the other aspect based on their preferences. One person might see Evil Dead as a horror, while another would see it as a comedy. I think Doomguy diving into hell to avenge the death of daisy is only part of the ridiculousness of doom. Based only on the ending texts, the monsters could be hell spawn, aliens, or mutants. Personally, I think it's all three, because why the hell not (shameless pun). You can actually see this coming back in 80s & 90s retro shows and movies such as Futureman And Thor Ragnarok which are comedy mixed with serious action. Doom’s brilliant fusion of the two-tone aesthetic is just a relic of the times that the game came from. A relic that I cherish and wish Doom could make a return to someday.

    Yeah, but- I was once on the side of "doom is serious" but the community converted me long before The Doom Slayer was a thing. Edit: I should add that I think of Doom's tone as more of a nebulous thing that is caught between serious and silly.

    Another DOOM movie being made?

    woah! Khosatral Khel. is that a conan reference or something similar? (google says yes, nice!) Haven't seen that name in a billion years. Perfect comparison for Doomguy in my opinion.

    It seems weird that I only just recently shared this image. But this Doomguy loves Daisy. Ain't thothin unmanly with that.

    Doomguy 'n Daisy,

    Haha! Yep. With the release of Doomsday Engine 2.0 last fall, development has reawakened and returned to its regular glacial crawl.

    Doomguy 'n Daisy,

    @Ex Oblivione I estimate another decade or two of development.

    Doomguy 'n Daisy,

    I'm just distracting myself from finals anxiety.

    Doomguy 'n Daisy,

    @DooM_RO Well, whaddya know... So it does. How did that get in there? Also, when did Doomworld get so fancy. I can actually tag-quote peeps now? I've gone the way of the dinosaur.

    Doomguy 'n Daisy,

    @DooM_RO: [404 Error] - Mention of "Ascension" in original post not found. Please follow the WIGHT rabbit. @printz: A "mere carcass"? Good sir, I dare say she is a lady and should be treated as such! Furthermore, there is no rabbit.

    Doomguy 'n Daisy,

    ... bound together, ... inseparable, ... unyielding.

    Will there ever be a decent 3D model pack?

    Well then, you might find this thread of theirs from the Doomsday Engine forums to be of some value. http://talk.dengine.net/discussion/877/dhmp-doom-high-res-model-project/p9

    Will there ever be a decent 3D model pack?

    It is worth mentioning that the mods Tea Monster and KuriKai are working on are an excellent example of 3D Doom mods done right. I was quite flattered to see this and I wasn't going to respond to it but later this week the Doom Ascension project will be moving it's domain to a new host and I thought i'd start injecting little bits of info here and there about the current progress of the project rather than do a "we never died" type of post. The project came to a point where my vision was lassoed to certain unreleased features of the Doomsday engine (namely, Doomsday Engine 2.0 as a whole) and we kept having to hold off on certain substantial milestones. As the implementation of those Doomsday Engine features started to go into the realm of uncertainty and the visibility of the engines development progress fell off, I had decided to put the Ascension project into stealth mode as well, and eventually into hibernation. It was no coincidence that I was also dealing with a controlled collapse of my own business at that same time. Doom Ascension is alive and with the release of Doomsday Engine 2 it has had a bit of a re-generation phase. It is quite exciting on this side of the veil. That is all i have to say about it right now. :)

    Forget Oculus Rift, play Doom with a Toaster

    I think it is too. I can't bring myself to watch it a second time but watch the screen as hes beating the hell out of those toasters. Nothing is happening in sync with his fisting and doomguy is moving while dude's fists are in the air. A joke video maybe?
