  1. My factory ALWAYS lets us play DOOM whenever we don't have any work to do. We have two rooms in the factory reserved for those times, a game room and a computer lab (I helped set up the lab and populate it with games on every computer). Right now DOOM's only on one of the computers, but when I go back on Monday, I'm gonna put it on the other three. I even donated a router and they're trying to bring in ethernet cables so we can play DOOM, StarCraft, Diablo II, and other games against each other...
  2. The BFG Edition for me was so-so, especially since I own more than 1 copy of the original versions of the games. I'm REALLY glad they made it for PS3 though. DOOM hasn't been seen on PlayStation in over 15 years and I have no intention of buying a 360, so I'm very grateful for that move. However, there's also DOOM Classic Complete on PSN that has Final DOOM and the Master Levels, thus making it the only way I need to DOOM on PS3, as I already prefer Classic DOOM over DOOM 3.
  3. ...what would be the first thing you'd do after finding out? If and when Classic DOOM became freeware, I swear, I'd make 500 CDs, each packaged with all the Classic DOOM games, and casually hand them out to ANYONE who didn't already own the game...
  4. Exactly!
  5. I meant the levelling-up, but they both sound fun... EDIT: My local buddy looked at your post and said he likes the planetside idea. Whatever way it goes though, I'm sure it'll be exciting...
  6. Is it possible? I was playing ZDaemon and Zandronum craving online multiplayer, and it just dawned on my that an MMO rendition of Classic DOOM would be stellar... If this has been discussed before though, I apologize.
  7. EDIT: Asked a question that already got answered. :P
  8. I would've gladly helped you out here, but the place I usually get my DVD and Game Covers (cdcovers.cc) didn't have it either...
  9. Thanks digger! You just made my day ;)
  10. Even though I can downgrade Ultimate DOOM to DOOM v1.1, then re-upgrade to DOOM Registered v1.9, I'd really like to buy this version someday, so I can at least say I bought the original version of DOOM. Which leads me to ask: Was Registered v1.9 ever packaged on CD and/or Floppy? It's hard to tell from Ebay and Amazon offers, so I figured I'd ask the pros...
  11. I work at a factory in Traverse City MI, and am allowed to play DOOM on my laptop whenever there's no work to be done, which happens to be one of those days. :P. Not only that, I was even able to get away with putting DOOM and DOOM II on their game computer, as I used the GBA versions. :D So, as the title says, who here are lucky enough to be able to play our beloved shooter at work?
  12. Until I'm able to get another GBA SP, I just play the GBA versions of DOOM and DOOM II on my Xperia Play.
  13. Some time mid 1997: My mom rents DOOM 64 from our local video store, I take it home, play it, get my mind blown. First time playing DOOM. July 10th 1998: After my birthday party, I go to my Windows 95 computer, install Depths of DOOM Trilogy, fire up Ultimate DOOM under DOOM 95, and although initially disappointed that it wasn't like DOOM 64, get consumed nevertheless. First time playing DOOM for REAL.
  14. ...and DOOM II is now my DEFINITIVE Favorite Game of All Time!

    The only thing that was keeping it from being my favorite game was Super Street Fighter II Turbo and my love for fighting games. This changed after a brief visit to Shoryuken.com, where, even though I can beat the game and am pretty good at it, I was basically told "YOUR SKILL IS NOT ENOUGH". And then they had to throw in "Maybe a desk job would fit you better".

    Now I've been playing and loving video games since I was 5 years old, so the fact they think I shouldn't even be playing them pretty much sealed their doom (no pun intended). I'll still play fighting games, but if I had to change my Favorite Game of All Time for any reason, it will never be a fighting game again. Besides, there's a LOT of classic and a few modern shooters I DO enjoy playing.

    To Doomworld, where you're free to love what you do and not have to have the skill or the experience to do it.

      I'll still play fighting games and other game genres, but I'm not touching Mortal Kombat ever again. After the shit they pulled in the 2011 game? After the fanbase turned into a brutal fascist government? No fucking way. I'll play Street Fighter (my favorite fighting game), Tekken, Soul Calibur, KOF, Virtua Fighter, but NOT Mortal Kombat. Don't get me started...

      I don't really know what "shit" they pulled in the 2011 game other than the screamer in the Krypt: I loathe screamers. //_- I dig Tekken quite a lot as well, but my copy of Tekken 5's AWOL at the moment so I can't play it. My favourite character's Yoshimitsu. =D

      I rock playing as Law.

      My brother used to kick my butt with Law in Tekken 2. Freaking flipkicks...X-D

      *sniff sniff* I smell some "competitive" adrenaline oozing from there....yup, those places tend to be somewhat unfriendly to anyone who's not "selling" themselves as top-notch "pros".

    7. Mystery Man in 3D

      Yet they applauded me when I announced that DOOM II is now my favorite game and FPS is my favorite genre. They even started having a friendly conversation about classic DOS shooters. :P

      In general, be careful with who you challenge in such environments, especially if you're new and don't yet know who is who.

      If you're new to online competitive PvP in general, there are a lot of "tricks to the trade" to learn. Not only game-specific, but -perhaps most importantly- diplomatic.

      A "fearsome" community presence (verbally aggressive, condescending, paternalizing, abrasive, always based on the premise or presumption of superiority at the game itself) seems to be almost as important -if not more important- than actual competence at the game. If actual superiority is indeed exhibited, then there's no stopping the "pwnage 1337" behavior. Complaining about a perceived injustice or unfairness just feeds the "competotrolls". Serious business, indeed.

      It doesn't mean all people hanging there are necessarily bad, but there always is a "competitive bully" or two hanging around, ready to pick on the "newb". Yeah, getting an easy win or two against the newb and then calling him a "scrub" to his face is what some people live for in those environments, taking their role as "breakers of noobs" a bit too seriously, so don't be too surprised at the "welcome" you received.

      Already learned that the hard way a long time ago.

      No PC port, perhaps. It's admittedly disappointing.

      I'm pretty curious about what you posted on shoryuken.com to get that sort of replies. Beating the game in arcade mode has nothing to do with competetive gameplay in street fighter. So logging on to shoryuken.com and being all smug about beating Seth on the hardest difficulty will most certainly cause people to either laugh and troll or sigh at the naive "smugness".

      Shoryuken.com has been a goldmine for me when I was learning new characters and their bnb's, but other than that it's a pretty lame forum. The whole competetive gaming scene is full of fanboys and the gossip and bullshit is often worse than the shit you can read in various gossip papers about celebreties.

      The only reason to even register on shoryuken.com is if you're looking for practice buddies or want to show off your ultra-cool-super-modified-fightstick-deluxe-sanwa-whatever.

  15. I just bought the boxset you guys were pinpointing me towards. Thanks for your help! Much appreciated. Plus, with fraggle's comment (which I actually read AFTER buying the boxset), that will make this an even bigger trinket in my grand archive...
