  1. I really don't like it when enemies are aware of the player right when the level starts. The absolute worst case I've seen of this was in Plutonia Map10 (I think), where a chaingunner's pointed at your back the instant the map loads.
  2. You can edit the GAME.CON file in a text editor and give yourself the ability to rescue them. Zaero on the 3D Realms forums shared a way to do it: https://forums.3drealms.com/vb/showpost.php?p=523592&postcount=48 If you're playing the 20th Anniversary edition of DN3D, replace 125 with 131, otherwise you'll get the "Babe saved!" message whenever you pick up incinerator ammo. EDIT Edit GAME.CON unless you're using eduke, in which case it's eduke.con like in the quote.
  3. I've always thought Reelism and Russian Overkill are funny, largely due to how ridiculous they get, and Reelism has a lot of wry messages. The whole premise of @Jimmy's A Boy and His Barrel makes me laugh, too.
  4. I'll take a scene of Doomguy's home and lost family if, and only if, afterward we can wreck the house while sad Robocop music plays. Some of us need a convoluted narrative to really get off.
  5. I've never been convinced that Doom 2016 is a direct sequel to the previous games, and honestly been surprised at how many people have claimed it is. It always struck me as a brand new storyline that uses elements from the previous games, plus Easter eggs as was mentioned earlier. Also, wasn't there something that called the First Age ruler of Hell "the Great Serpent?" Sounds like Satan to me. EDIT As far as liking the Doomguy, I wound up liking the Doomslayer just based on his actions in the game, such as fist bumping his doll and backing up VEGA.
  6. I don't know, I wound up using the SSG more than any other weapon, especially once I upgraded it all the way. It's fun to jump and double-tap Barons in the head with the SSG.
  7. Some of us need a convoluted narrative to really get off.
  8. I... didn't think it was very funny. Too much "lol random!" humor.
  9. Same, though I'd love to play Doom64 EX with reload animations and enhanced lighting.
  10. I had the same problem recently, and it was because I dragged Hacx 2.0 onto GZDoom's icon, then selected the Hacx 1.2 iwad, so it ran both of them simultaneously and screwed it up. Replacing 1.2 with 2.0 fixed it. Could you be making the same mistake I did?
  11. You might give Doom Tribute Project a shot. It's a really well done homage to Doom 1 and 2, and I think it may be just the sort of thing you're looking for. http://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=49292
  12. I remember Map07 of [url='https://www.doomworld.com/vb/wads-mods/62339-doom-2-in-name-only-now-supsiciously-on-a-load-of-gaming-articles/']Doom 2 In Name Only[/url] being sarcastically referred to as "avant garde," and I think it may actually meet the definition. You can tell it's great art because people either love it or hate it. I stopped playing D2INO at Map07, so I'm sure you can guess what camp I'm in.
  13. The Soul/Megaspheres make me think of Doom 3's Soul Cube, so I think of them as good souls trapped in Hell that are helping you fight. Heck, if I ever get around to actually making some Doom levels, I might replace the spheres' pick-up sounds with the Soul Cube's "USE US."
  14. Doomguy uses his left hand for punching and pistoling. He uses his right for everything else. Also, he manages to take his gloves off or put them on again when switching to or from the fist. Things like this keep me up at night.
  15. The circlejerks in the comments hurt my head.
