  1. I've gotten just to the Foundry level just far, but man, ultra-nightmare mode has made me realize just how balls to the wall intense this new Doom is. Before playing on ultra-nightmare mode, I thought that Doom 2016 was too easy, that it didn't quite capture the same sense of dread that the original had where it felt like you were up against overwhelming odds, but all that's changed. You CANNOT fuck up in combat in this mode or else you're done. You have to move, you have to be fast, you have to kill everything as quickly as possible since even weak enemies can kill you quick. Although ultra-nightmare mode can be frustrating at times due to all the restarts, it has breathed new life into the game for me. Really, in my opinion, it captures the absolute intensity, speed, and brutality of the original.
  2. Well, I'm hoping personally that Robert Duffy can make what he said about Ryzen a reality : "The additional threads and cores allow us to turn up a lot of things: better frame rates, more AI, more things happening in the game space, more simulations running, more realistic worlds." As much as I want a Hell on Earth sequel already, I wouldn't mind waiting a little longer while so they can create a souped up graphics engine and combine it with advanced physics and better AI so that when Doom finally comes to Earth, it will be the most mind blowing Doom game ever made. However, some SP DLC for the current Doom game would be nice too. Someone mentioned making a DLC similar to the Episode Thy Flesh Consumed to act as some sort of intermission between Doom 2016 and presumably Doom: Hell on Earth. Something that I was thinking about the other day after playing Doom 2016 is how I wish that id had made Hell a little bit more gruesome and oppressive. Last year, I played Brutal Doom 64 and found the Hell sections to be extremely foreboding and oppressive, especially in one level where there was a room full of captured, mutilated UAC marines crying and shouting due to their torment. Seeing something similar in Hell in the next Doom game would really make Hell seem more like, well, Hell: a place were unfortunate souls go to be tortured and tormented for all eternity, not just a place where demons live.
  3. Aztec by far. I want to replay Goldeneye on PC with keyboard and mouse. Some gameplay videos of the game being played on PC just fill me with nostalgia, and I want to be able to shoot accurately and fast like James Bond would in real life.
  4. I wish that nightmare mode was also more than just enemies hit harder. I wish that they could incorporate monster respawning like they had in the old games. That would quite a fun challenge.
  5. Eh, I like each one for a specific item. McDonald's Double Quarter Pounder with cheese is always my go-to burger when I eat there. When I go to Wendy's, their spicy chicken sandwich along with a cup of chili and fries makes an absolute divine combination. Subway's Italian BMT is absolutely delicious along with their macadamia nut cookies. Burger King is alright. Their Whoppers are huge. Carl's Jr. is ok too. There criss cut fries are marvelous and their burgers taste pretty good as well. Used to eat out at Arby's a lot. Their roast beef sandwich's are delicious and they have amazing curly fries. I haven't eaten at Whataburger in ages, which is a shame since I live in Texas. I need to go there before I fly up to Idaho this upcoming New Year's Eve. My family and I used to call it Whatabum because the first time we ate there, some panhandler came in and tried to bum some fries off of us. The manager kicked him out after that. When I was a kid, I used to go to a place called Rally's a lot. Out East I believe it's called Checker's. They had absolutely amazing cajun fries. Which reminds me that Popeye's is my absolute favorite place to get fried chicken and it beats out KFC any day of the week. Another place that I really love is Chipotle. Their steak burritos are amazing. Pizza Hut is alright. When I'm up at school, however, when I crave pizza, I usually get Little Ceaser's 5 dollar hot and ready pepperoni pizza. Can't really beat that price for pizza. Don't like Taco Bell. Taco Bell is shit and is an insult to Mexican food.
  6. Of course it did. I guarantee you that you more people in the gaming community know about Brutal Doom than the Doom comic. And don't misunderstand what I'm saying. I'm not saying that Id was inspired by Brutal Doom or that Brutal Doom is the reason Doom 4 is the way it is. I am talking about the impact that it's had on how gamers view Doomguy and who Doomguy is. That's it.
  7. I never said that Doom 4's glory kill system was inspired by Brutal Doom. Neither did I say that Brutal Doom was the sole inspiration of the psycho-badass interpretation of Doomguy. I said that it simply has CONTRIBUTED to the idea, and considering Brutal Doom's popularity not just in the Doom community but in the broader gaming community, it's undebatable that Brutal Doom has shifted people's views and interpretations on Doomguy and caused them to view him more as a psycho-badass rather than a lone survivor badass.
  8. I think, unfortunately, Brutal Doom has contributed to this idea that Doomguy is this psycho-badass who loves killing and torturing demons. And that unfortunately has caused lots of people to think of Doomguy that way rather than the way Touchdown and also I viewed him in my earlier years of playing Doom. I like the idea of Doomguy being just a regular guy who is really good at killing demons but just does it to survive and to try to stop the invasion. To me, that makes him more relatable because that's how I would feel if I were in his position. I don't want to go to hell and I don't want to spend all my time killing demons and possibly get killed doing it, but I have to do it because that's the only thing that's going to save humanity and also save myself. Doomguy as some psycho-badass demon killing god is just totally unrelatable to me.
  9. I would be careful about trying to inject too much religious meaning into Doom. It would just come out really dumb. However, hell in Doom is real hell. Not just some alien planet.
  10. Definitely. Sign of Evil is by far one of the more memorable tracks from the original Doom. To me, it's memorable because it gives off that sense and feeling of doom, that no matter what you do, the demons are going win, which is what happened at the end of episode one anyway. Even after defeating "the big badasses" or the hell barons, you die anyway and go to hell.
  11. I wish that hell would have been interpreted that way in Doom 4. I always viewed hell that way in the originals: some undefeatable, oppressive, monstrous force that, no matter what you did, would eventually defeat you in the end. I guess I viewed it that way back then because when I was young, I was really bad at Doom and I died a lot. Anyway, the name of the game is DOOM afterall. Not Demon Asskicker. The very name describes what, in my opinion, one should be feeling throughout the game: an overwhelming feeling and sense of doom because you are up against overwhelming odds. However, through sheer will and might coupled with massive firepower, you overcome the overwhelming odds and win. Hopefully in Doom 5, Id will be able to strike a balance between the two. Afterall, if Doom 5 is set on earth, then it will have to have that tone because you are talking about all of earth being invaded and overwhelmed by a massive demonic force determined to exterminate humanity.
  12. Wow. Now that you mention this, I have realized that this is a big one for me too. I almost get sick and mad jealous seeing former acquaintances and friends posting lovey dubby status updates on their Facebook walls that end up in my news feed. Especially girls that I have gone out with in the past or was interested in but are now in a relationship with some other guy. Makes me pissed and sometimes even depressed.
  13. I liked Doom 4 too, but like Touchdown, I wish they had taken the atmosphere and story a little more seriously. I always thought that the original Doom's story and gameplay was so arcadey and unserious simply because that was what the technology allowed at the time. If I recall correctly, I believe that some of the old devs said that Doom 3 was basically the game that Id would have made if they had the tech back in 1993. It was their modern vision of Doom. I am not saying that Doom 3 was the perfect version of Doom or that Id should have just remade Doom 3 instead of making Doom 4, however, I wish they had kept a serious atmosphere and combined it with the fast paced and hard hitting combat of Doom 4.
  14. I placed first in a sexy legs contest on a Caribbean cruise.
  15. -26 years old and still living off and on with my parents. -Never have had a girlfriend or even kissed a girl. This probably is mostly due to me not having much "game" as some would call it and not setting aside enough time to actually get one. -I have struggled with OCD and intrusive thoughts in the past which have been quite debilitating. However, I have recovered quite a bit and now am able to function a lot better. I still struggle a little bit with intrusive thoughts though. And that's all I can really think of. Oh wait: -Pretty lazy and unmotivated when it comes to important things like school and work. I am currently pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering and have made it all the way to my junior level classes, but due to my laziness and procrastination in my past classes, I now have a 2.9 overall GPA. I am going to try to kick it into high gear in the upcoming semester, but it is going to be really tough. I wish I would have tried harder in my other classes because some of those classes were a lot easier then the ones that I will be taking and I probably could have gotten a B or an A if I had applied myself more and studied hard like I was supposed to. However, I only scraped by in those classes with a C. And now, I have a GPA below a 3.0 and it's going to be a real bitch to get it back up above that. Hopefully, I can do it. Other than that, I can't see really anything else wrong with me. I love working out and bodybuilding and what not and look pretty impressive physically, so if I actually set aside the time and effort, I probably can get a girl friend. I just need to set aside the time to do it and find one with which I have some chemistry.
