    Best/worst video game flamethrower?

    Call of Duty Black Ops has a weapon mounted flamethrower that can be overpowered by harsh language, literally used exclusively to artificially handicap yourself or to troll. Fallout New Vegas has quite possibly my favourite flamethrower of all time though, in the Gun Runner's Arsenal DLC there is a flamethrower called Cleansing Flame, it fires long range hot gas that tears through targets and has the added bonus of causing an explosion if you kill someone by crippling the chest, absolutely glorious weapon. EDIT: Turns out Cleansing Flame is not hot gas but is actually bugged, it is actually a deep blue flame that renders 100% transparent for some reason. When fixed it looks even better.

    What popular megawads do you think are overrated?

    Eternal Doom is up there in my overrated, I think that it being highly regarded is justified though as it nails exactly what it wanted to be and is very well crafted, what it wanted to be is a complete pain in the arse puzzle and it does not appeal to me, in fact I'd say it shouldn't be as recommended as much as it is to new players as it will be sure to frustrate them. It's a niche mapset that appeals to a certain sect of people, not just anyone.

    Discussion About the Gothic Series

    I feel like Gothic's brutal difficulty and jank, whilst charming and a reason as to why it is so good, didn't net it mainstream appeal like Elder Scrolls as those games are remarkably more accessible than Gothic. Even Daggerfall is more forgiving than Gothic is.
  5. I was looking at the GOG RPG sale one day and saw the entire Gothic series on sale, I heard that it was a niche, clunky but ultimately held in high regard game, so I bought the entire series. Starting with Gothic 1, I didn't know what to expect, the game did little to explain what to do and how it worked, after minutes of fumbling like a moron I figured out the controls. That's when the chicken attack happened, large birds named "Scavengers" started clucking at me and they ripped me to pieces in moments, all progress lost. I knew I was in for a ride at this point, time to buckle up. The first few quests were odd, unclear and vague, I learned that human enemies will just rob you rather thank kill you (which is remarkably worse), the first human fight I had was to initiate into the "Old Camp", I had to challenge the toughest fighter and he would 1 bomb me every time and rob me, loading again I had an idea: You can't rob me if I have no money I stashed the dosh round the back and let him clobber me, mission complete with no money lost. It was one of those games where understanding it was half the battle, you had to fight the mechanics to make progress rather than work with them, I realised this. I went out and exterminated the population of Scavengers, did meaningless tasks for sweet XP, trained to use weapons, killed bigger pests... I had come back a formidable force only after hours of studying and reflecting on one shot death after one shot death, failure after failure I learned what to do. I loved this experience, infuriating yet so rewarding! By the end of Gothic 1 I led a 1 man crusade and purged the map of all hostile life, only friendly/neutral NPCs remained, during the final boss fight I summoned an army of golems to fight for me as I had learned that I can abuse the game's mechanics to my will, Gothic 1 was amazing in this way, brutal and unforgiving yet malleable and breakable, so satisfying too. Not to mention the story, subversion, betrayal, surprise, stakes, it has it all going, it is a topic all up in itself. I then went onto Gothic 2, one shotted by everything, enemies of all levels and danger dotting everywhere, the struggle was amplified because I was using the Gold version that makes the game nigh near impossible, no amount of Gothic 1 could prepare you for this... The fun begins again, I am so looking forward to conquering Gothic 2 like the first game, I highly recommend these games if you want a satisfying challenge and don't mind mad jank.

    Opinions on Social Media.

    Ok then, I'll go pay for a stamp to send off a letter that I'll be unsure of if it reached them or not and that'll take a considerably longer time to arrive and I'll also consider disregarding the phone bill I get by opting not to use the free service (especially when we think about overseas calls yeah). It's shit but that's on purpose, also who is sending letters in 2020? Serious question.
  8. You just reminded me that Blood on the Dancefloor existed. You can all feel free to hate me for bringing this to your attention :)

    Opinions on Social Media.

    You can sit there and explain how buttfuck awful social media is and be right, it is buttfuck awful, however social media is the only viable way now days to keep in contact with friends that have moved, live elsewhere or have little time anymore and for that fact alone it still has a value. It may be a hive of brainlets, insanity, total drek, absolutely insufferable parents/boomers ect but at the end of the day I'd chose social media to stay in contact with the good folks I have met in my life over the mail system...

    Responding to GmanLives' Unity Doom video (Removed)

    It's always fun when someone speaks with authority about Vanilla and instead are talking about GZDoom because they know no other version. Reminds me when someone on the Doomyard Facebook page tried to convince me PSX Doom had Nightmare then linked me a video of GZDoom, to which I responded with pictures of the actual disc. I own the Unity ports, they are basically Vanilla + and play exactly like every other vanilla port with fixes and life improvements, I've played enough with controller and MnK (which you can do on console if you know how) on both platforms to confidently say it's Vanilla Doom.

    F.E.A.R. Should it be rebooted?

    Odd, my issue is usually with Extraction Point having physics be processed quicker than usual leading to some interesting scenarios (I had a medical table prevent progress because a Replica took it with him down the corridor) but no mouse issues, I'll have to peak at my config to see what my mouse sensitivity is.
