    How will DOOM 6 work?

    Okay, so Doom Eternal really got close-quarters combat down solidly. Like, when you get it down right, it's almost like a rhythm game, only combos mean more guts, ammo, health, and shields. What if the next Doom focused on expanding the number of demons you could take on at once? You know, like tweaked it so that combos would obliterate entire platoons of demons, Dynasty Warrior style? Not saying make a Dynasty Warrior game with the Doom Guy, but give Doom Guy the ability to shred through dozens of demons at a time and give him that kind of challenge. I dunno, I don't even think I'd want the next Doom game to be that myself, just spitballing ideas.

    New Kenner Real Ghostbusters Animation

    Yeah, I've collected most everything except for some of the movie monsters and whatnot. Honestly it's a total fluke, about six months ago I bought some of the old toys just for nostalgia, and honestly just kinda went nuts - got all the old ghosts I used to have, the firehouse, all the vehicles, and I built a whole little neighborhood playset to go with the firehouse (really fun actually, just applied my Doom mapping skills to cardboard).
  3. This time, it's Power Pack Janine piloting Ecto Bomber.
  4. So this... Is an odd one, I'm not even fully sure how I ended up here. Basically, I started to collect all the Real Ghostbusters action figures from when I was a kid, and I ended up building a whole playset. Furthermore, I've been experimenting with things like stop-motion animation, to maybe even one day make my own short films. This one is from the Gobblin' Goblins line of ghosts, and his name is Terror Tongue. It ain't perfect, but I've been having so much fun working on this stuff and teaching myself how to do it.

    Martian Solar Eclipse!

    Oh yeah, "Sigil of Evil" without a doubt, that was literally the song that popped into my head when I saw the video.

    Martian Solar Eclipse!

    lol I was thinking the same thing! Blows my mind that we can even get this video, but it's like you can almost hear the Doom music playing as Phobos glides across the sun.
  7. Funny thing I noticed when watching the "Real Ghostbusters" cartoon. So there's an episode called, "Knock, Knock," which features a portal to another dimension. The doorway to the portal is meant to be opened, "Only on Doomsday." When opened, the portal unleashed an army of "the worst of the worst" ghosts who had been held in that dimension as a prison. The Ghostbusters had to go into the hell dimension and seal the portal to save the world. The funny thing was how it was clearly meant to be hell even without saying hell. But yeah, even the background design in the hell dimension looked like it would fit right at home in a Doom level. Anyway, just thought the Ghostbusters fighting demons and sealing a portal to hell was just a funny little coincidence. Edit: Ugh and I just realized I've been here long enough that I'm sure someone else has probably pointed this out by now, and I may have even seen it, but if so forgive my failing memory.

    WOMBO Dream

    What the hell? Dammit I mean the technology itself is cool as hell, why TF do people have to ruin everything?

    WOMBO Dream

    So there's this new AI app out called WOMBO Dream that takes prompts and then generates artwork. Here's an example I did by feeding it various hell-related terms I could think of, and I'll be damned if I didn't get something that looks like it would fit right in with Doom.

    Quake Remastered

    I will say this for Quake Remastered, for the time being anyway, it's been great playing vanilla deathmatch on decently populated servers. Really takes me back to high school when we'd have big shareware Quake matches on the school network. Really wish a feature like that had been included in the Doom Unity ports, to be quite honest, but yeah, holy crap I had forgotten how fun good ol' classic Quake deathmatch was.
  11. Okay, so this is probably the most pointless thing in the world to ask - but darn it, I unlocked classic Doom and Doom II in Doom Eternal, and I want to make use of that. Is there any way to enable autorun in the Doom Eternal versions, or am I just stuck holding down the shift key for all eternity? Yeah, I know I could literally play any source port on virtually any device I wanted, just wanted to check because I spent that time finding the floppy disks and whatnot.

    Oh no, I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but I just discovered this Easter Egg while replaying Doom Eternal, and I am SHOCKED! Found this in Nekroval Part II, in case anyone was wondering. Tried to make sure this isn't a repost, so sorry if it's been mentioned before.

    [Plot hole?] Did Earth get invaded twice...?

    Personally, I always imagined kind of a "spoked" multiverse, with Urdak and Hell acting as anchors. There's only one Urdak, one Hell, but they're both connected all of the parallel universes that make up the multiverse. The Doomslayer started out in "Earth 1," wound up in Hell, stumbled upon an exit that led to Sentinel Prime, which itself was in a universe that contained "Earth 2," which had not made contact with Hell until Samur's machinations with that universe's UAC.

    Ancient Gods 1: Nerfed?

    Okay, so I confess, I wasn't super excited about Ancient Gods 2. After all, to be completely honest, I got stuck in Ancient Gods 1 and just kinda gave up. You see, there's a Slayer Gate in the Holt that was proving to be impossibly difficult. THREE Archviles, Several Blood Maykrs, a couple of Doom Hunters, and finally, a friggin' possessed Marauder! Just utterly insane, and I didn't want to skip the Slayer Gate, so for months I would load it up, give it a few dozen tries, give up, and then go back to just not touching the game. Well today, I decided I'd fire up Doom Eternal and give it the old college try, in honor of Ancient Gods 2 coming out. What did I discover? Two Archviles instead of 3, only 2 Blood Maykrs, and the possessed Marauder? He gets dizzy now when you get a good hit on him! Like, literally, you see little cartoon stars over his head as he tries to regain his composure. It still took me a few tries, but for once, the Slayer Gate didn't feel over-the-top impossible. I had made it as far as the possessed Marauder before, but never had I reached him without feeling completely physically and emotionally drained... And combined with the cartoon dizziness, I actually defeated the bastard and completed the Slayer Gate. Still a long way away from actually beating Ancient Gods Part 1, but (a) I'm glad to be done with that impossible challenge, but (b) apparently the folks at Bethesda noticed how impossible the gate was, and deliberately nerfed the difficulty there. Wonder if they made changes anywhere else? EDIT: Should probably specify that I always play on Ultra-Violent, in case anyone was wondering, and no, I didn't change the difficulty settings.

    Anyone else not like Final doom?

    Not too long ago, I made it a specific goal to sit down and play all the way through Final Doom. I really enjoyed TNT, and for once in my life, I actually really made an effort on Plutonia. I actually realized that with a little patience, I had the skill to slog through Plutonia. However, I confess I gave up on MAP30. It's just too friggin' nuts for me, to be honest.
