    SIGIL - New Romero megawad for Feb 2019

    interestingly enough, all the items on Limited Run has been renamed to "John Romero's X" (X being what edition and content there is). the only reference to Doom on there now is a disclaimer that Doom is a trademark of the respective owners, and i guess it being called a "megawad" in the item description.

    Doom music: Sign of Evil - intended instrument?

    i'm thinking it's supposed to sound like some sort of demon that's stalking you, as it kind of sounds like the Imp's active noise to me. hence the "suspense" of not knowing when something's going to pop out at you.

    SIGIL - New Romero megawad for Feb 2019

    no, that doesn't seem to be the case. i could add 8 or so of the beast box into the cart and it still accepted that.

    SIGIL - New Romero megawad for Feb 2019

    what confuses me is that the standard edition is an "open pre-order" but pre-orders close the 24th, and the beast box is "limited to a 2 week pre-order" and closes the same day as the standard one. what even is an open pre-order, anyway?

    it says there is no purchase limit and pre-orders are open in two weeks, so i got the impression that they'll manufacture as many orders as they get.

    SIGIL - New Romero megawad for Feb 2019

    for what it's worth, Romero seems like he really cares about the community. he did release a bunch of Doom assets, as well as WIP stuff, from the creation of Doom a few years back, right? that was an incredible amount of content that, for all we know, could've been lost forever and wouldn't have any idea it existed at all. that stuff is a lot of historical content that now could be properly archived thanks to him (unless my memory is failing me on this). i'm definitely intrigued by this, and the merch is pretty cool as well.

    5 core elements reminds me of LGR's 5 points of what makes Classic Doom so great, a combination of controls, level design, pacing, weapons and atmosphere. incidentally, LGR updated the title of his Doom video:

    The Official 'Trying to Find a Specific WAD' Thread

    oh wow, i'm blind. i even searched for it online and found the exact same entry i was looking for, down to the typo of the filename, but disregarded it as not what i was looking for. thank you!

    Prodeus [retro FPS]

    the pixel filter works in Dusk because the aesthetics are intentionally lo-fi, whereas Prodeus bears a striking resemblance to Doom 2016 and the visuals are of noticeably higher quality than Dusk. adding a filter to it doesn't make the aesthetics more "retro", it just makes them look worse, because the art-direction is much more modern. note that there were other games with higher quality artwork in them than Doom but also has limited frames due to technical restraints, like the Crusader series and old Fallout games, or even Redneck Rampage having higher quality sprites. hopefully it'll at least be a toggleable effect, because it doesn't really mesh well with how this game looks.

    Prodeus [retro FPS]

    why bother making the assets that high quality if you're just going to cover them up in an ugly pixel filter? we'll have to see where this is going i suppose.

    The greatest video game of this decade so far

    Doom 2016 is the best FPS of the decade for sure, though Doom Eternal might trump that honor when it releases. was definitely a good comeback after Doom 3 being rather mediocre, and had one of the most eye-catching styles - and soundtracks - i've seen in this sea of modern military shooters that exists today. i haven't played too much of it, but Minecraft is definitely something that intrigued me when i first played it this year. not so much the building aspect but more the survival gameplay that stuck out to me. there's something incredibly unique and tense to be stuck in an abandoned mineshaft and forgetting how to trek back with monsters all around you. Portal 2 remains the only Valve game so far with a story that actually concluded, somewhat. i don't think too highly of it personally, but it was certainly something i enjoyed, with its witty story, incredible sense of scope, and a really iconic soundtrack. also the level editor was fun to play around with. Undertale might be rather overrated now, but i can't deny that it isn't without some truth to it. the game really resonated with me, and the music is always going to stick with me now, particularly with how it heightens the emotional connection of the game's quirky and self-aware story. it's definitely not a game for everyone, but for me, it's definitely up there. the XCOM reboots are also great. they might be a bit too hard for me, and the second one can be really stressful, but as far as turn-based strategy games goes, these games are top of the line for this decade.

    i don't think i'm getting anywhere with MAP31, so i'm relinquishing my slot.
