    Share a random fact about yourself

    Just so I'm clear about this, did you mean transgender or transhuman? Did you want to become a cyborg or augmented human of some sort? Can you explain more about the thoughts that led up to this?

    Heh, I remember Entryway was pretty popular for the first game too. OMG, the Vosh 9mm! I don't even wanna know the odds of getting it now with all of the original weapons having Vault Precious skins, and those damn Vault pajamas and facepaints for each character.

    Doom's 25th Birthday - What will you be doing?

    Definitely a playthrough of Episodes 1 through 3 sorta like the old days (auto-aim and no mouselook or jump). Dunno if I'll attempt 4.

    Epic Games stops development of Unreal Tournament

    Yeah, it hurts just that bit more that the UT team created the battle royale mode for Fortnite at the time when its paid PvE mode wasn't doing very well.

    How did you come up with your username?

    It's a take on the actor's name, but where I got it is from the first GTA. At some point your character is working for the Triads and they send you on yet another mission to kill someone. This time, instead of a solo effort you're assigned this guy to help you. So I took it as my online handle.

    Who is your favorite character from any 90's FPS game?

    Unreal. I don't know if the player is told outright at the beginning or revealed Samus Aran-style.

    Who is your favorite character from any 90's FPS game?

    Caleb silent? That's like calling Duke Nukem "lanky".

    What were the first videos you watched on Youtube?

    I don't play Halo, so I don't know how I came across this video or why it stuck in my mind. Because 'tis the season, and seriously old. I don't remember the end being cut off, though.

    Your biggest WTF moment(s) in gaming

    Playing through the first Bioshock and meeting up with Andrew Ryan.
  10. I'm looking at the Doom FAQ by Hank Leukart, uploaded on Doom's first birthday on gamefaqs, and it calls IDDQD God mode. Perhaps earlier versions of the FAQ called it that as well?

    What is your favorite soda?

    I like a lot of different soda flavors. Coke and Pepsi, especially the cherry variety. Mountain Dew Code Red, though I haven't drank that for a long time. Fruit punch soda, especially Tahitian Treat. Sunkist. I'll drink Sprite/7-Up if nothing else is available. I used to enjoy grape soda, but now it just reminds me of Dimetapp. I hate ginger ale and don't care much for Dr Pepper. Club soda is for cleaning stains. I do try to reduce my soda drinking by not having any at home, or drinking a small cup when eating out.

    What Video Game(s) are you Currently Ignoring?

    I know what you mean. There was an ad on Twitch for a Samsung phone that's using playing Fortnite on it as a selling point; nevermind that Android players had just recently be able to do that. It strongly reminds me of when Pokemon first hit the US. There was advertising for it everywhere and people were playing the Gameboy games and trading card game. I'm not a fan of turn-based RPG, so Pokemon was a no-go. I definitely remember getting shit for saying I didn't like Pokemon in general. Nowadays while Pokemon is still going strong, it isn't in-your-face so I don't mind it much. They do their thing and I do mine. You know what was the kicker for me? I was watching my cousin play it on a Switch and TV, and I happen to see posters of Jazz Jackrabbit and UT99 on a wall he was about to tear down for wood. I don't mind cartoony aesthetics; they still look good today (see TF2) and they don't have to live up to the increasingly finer detail that realistic games demand. It's funny how Fortnite started off as a wave-based fortress-building zombie survival game and was a paid game that wasn't doing very well. Then the whole battle royale thing blew up with PUBG, and Epic decide that after working with the people behind PUBG, they too want in on it. So they assign the UT team to create the BR mode and release it for free. Now they're raking in the bucks like crazy, and they've even put up 100 million of them as prize money for tournaments. Meanwhile, the paid-for PvE game hasn't received nearly as much attention as the free BR game, and apparently it will go free-to-play next year. As for the question at hand, I don't care much for any of the battle royale games, or PvP for that matter. I get too tense for something that's supposed to be fun.

    I didn't see Ajora post about the Nightmare King (maybe it's not available where he's at or he takes his custom title seriously?) It's a burger with beef patty and cheese, chicken filet and bacon on a green bun. The green-ness was noticeable enough and wasn't the saturated green in the ad. With a small drink and fries, it came out to $10 where I went for lunch. Burger King has an ad campaign where they say eating the burger will increase the chances of having a nightmare by 3.5 times. Apparently they had 100 people volunteer to eat the burger and then be monitored at a sleep center. I think the real "nightmare" will be when I go to the toilet after this. I also wonder why Burger King decided to bring back the color gimmick from three years ago, when the bun was colored black and people were unaware of the food dye being so, ah, persistent. I wouldn't be surprised if some people are trying it just for that.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Been playing Castlevania SOTN lately after I saw a streamer go through it for the first time. After he got the bad ending, it was a joy to see him put two and two together and figure out how to get to the second half of the game. Then he managed to get a Crissagram (sp?) within five minutes of entering the inverted Library. That thing is broken beyond belief. I'm shooting for the 200.6% achievement, but WTF is up with the inverted Underground Caves? I keep gravity jumping and slamming Alucard's head into the water-covered ceilings, but the minimap doesn't show it's explored?

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Apparently I wrote a post about the Summer update for KF2 but didn't post it and the forum software saved it anyway. Spoilered for old news. There was a content update at the beginning of October and it's a Halloween event, naturally. All of the specimen enemies are reskinned as classic movie monsters and a new map is set in a castle decorated with string lights, bat cutouts, cakes and refreshments, and even a dance hall complete with lasers and a vampire DJ. Shooting any of the numerous balloons around the estate releases confetti, bats or ghosts. A cute touch, and a roundabout advertisment for a cosmetic headshot FX pack that's being sold. There are also traps of various kinds that you can activate to kill some of the weaker enemies (and one of the objectives requires you to do so). I tackled the hardest objective first (survive 25 waves in Endless mode) as a lvl 22 Gunslinger because he has high-damage weapons, faster movement speed and headshots slow down enemies, all very useful when kiting the largest enemies and bosses. Even so, I had several close calls in the tight hallways. One was in a dark corner that I didn't realize I was running into until it was almost too late. The most memorable one was getting gangbanged by several of the biggest non-boss enemy on a narrow walkway overlooking the most metal of fireplaces. If I hadn't kept jumping and getting knocked over the enemies, I would have been finished for sure. That, and there was a mutator that made everyone's head gigantic which meant I was landing headshots like crazy. The last boss fight before completing the Endless objective was another close call. This time was King Shit, now able to poop out even more nasty turd minions. I really hate fighting that guy because the exploding turds make the screen shake and throw off my aim. It's kinda strange; up until that point I considered the boss waves the least difficult and a given pass. I'm not a fan of Endless mode, and I had been at it for a little over an hour. I stopped after wave 27 and left the game. I'll just grind out the last objective on the lowest difficulty, bodies are bodies regardless of difficulty. Three new weapons were added for Halloween, all assault rifles for Commando. The FN FAL makes a return appearance from the first game, and the Right Arm of the Free World serves as a longer-ranged option thanks to its combat sight. It does fairly well in a Sharpshooter's hands, but it's just straight-up OP when used by a Commando. The Medic Grenade Rifle is a fairly good assault rifle with an underslung launcher that fires a canister of healing gas. Real expensive for what it does, though. The MKb42 is unlocked for in-game purchase when all of the Halloween objectives are completed. By accounts of those who got it, it's subpar for its price and acts like any other assault rifle. It's a pity the devs didn't add a bayonet to it to make it different, as one of the bosses dual-wields the weapon and there aren't many weapons with a thrust attack. The Killing Floor devs run a poll for what weapon in the first game the community wants to return. This time for the upcoming winter, they decide to just add the next three weapons since they were not picked in previous polls and I think they want to head off a bigger shitstorm of bitching about 'muh choice!'. The Fireaxe hails from the UT2004 mod version of KF and returns in the first retail game. From what I remember, people used it to flinchlock the strongest enemy to death. I don't know if this incarnation will bring back this weapon mechanism. The Tommygun was 3 DLC weapons (box mag, drum mag, steampunk skin) in the first game. As far as I'm concerned, it's a third (maybe fourth?) .45 cal SMG, one with a drum mag for even more dakka. It's getting real samey, though not to CoD levels. The M32 MGL was introduced with the Demolition perk in the first game, and I'm not very fond of its upcoming inclusion. That thing was obnoxious as hell, spamming smoke screens and screen shaking everywhere. Even other Perks were using it without bonuses because it was that damn good. I never liked how the Rocket Launcher in the first KF was replaced by it, and I'd hate to see the similar RPG in KF2 be made obsolete. The Seeker Six is going to be made even more useless since it occupies a similar niche but is passed over in favor of the RPG's raw damage. Man, ever since the M99 AMR was put into the game, the Steam forums are getting more requests for even more outlandish weapons that threaten to remove any challenge in the game. Miniguns, multi-shot explosive launchers not named Seeker Six, sentry guns, land mines, more AMRs. Some fuck even requested Cable's weapon from Deadpool 2 just now, saying it's the perfect gun to do it all. At that point, you're not looking for a horde shooter, you're looking for a shooting gallery. Almost as bad are the ones who get off on posting lists of samey firearms from Battlefield or Call of Duty without elaborating on where they fit in a Perk's loadout without being OP.

    Thoughts on Blood

    For October, I have two of the cultist death sounds as text message alarms: either "it burns! IT BURNS! burns! (anguished wailing)" or the one that's especially loud regardless of how far away he is. The spiders, though. Fuck them, the creepy chitter they make when they see you and the mother that spawned them in. I'd burn them up with the spraycan more often if it didn't have pitifully short reach and small hitbox, and its secondary attack wasn't so overkill and dangerous in the tight quarters they are often found in. Hearing this makes think of walking alone in the forest at night, searching for a mysterious whisper that compels me deeper into the darkness. Suddenly I trip on a root and stumble down an unseen slope, sending me crashing into the cold packed dirt and withered leaves. As I shake my head from the fall, I see a clearing ahead where cultists have gathered for what looks like a bonfire. But no, no. The bonfire is the portal of a summoning ritual, and right when the MIDI version of this song starts, the stars above dim and an overwhelming feeling of fear and hopelessness floods my mind like fog. An otherworldly being emerges from the smoke, with an outstretched tentacle ending in a pincer that points at me. The cultists begin chanting in their unintelligible tongue as they heed the direction of their eldritch master. I freeze in place for a few seconds, despair closing in on me faster than the cultists. Then panic strikes, and before I know it I'm running back up the slope I tripped down before. With each whimpering wheeze I breathe out from my aching chest, I pray it is not heard by the pursuing cultists, whose chanting has taken an unsettling sing-song tone.

    Go to your Account Settings (click on your name in the upper right) and you can change your display name there. I believe you can change once every 365 days.

    Weirdest/surprising game trivia you know

    If you ever played Goldeneye multiplayer, you always find one jerk who chooses Oddjob because he's shorter and harder to hit. Turns out the developers mistook Oddjob (5'10") for Nick Nack (3'11"). Jaws is rightfully taller than the rest at 7'2". Also of note is that the actor for Oddjob was in the US Army during World War II and took silver in weightlifting at the Olympics following the war. What players call hipfire What hipfire actually is
