  1. hey guys, how are yall doing today? i've been well. it's been awhile since i posted anything on Doomworld or messed around with Doom 2, perhaps i'll cook up another project sometime soon. ima have to learn how to code stuff again cause i probably don't remember how to do any of that. lately everyone has been talking about how bad of a year 2016 was, but for me personally it wasn't that bad. just the same old same old. i look forward to seeing what 2017 brings to the table. shout out to everyone who remembers me, not sure if ill become active here again or not. i dont think you guys missed me that much lol but ill prob drop a post or two from time to time. i need to reinstall slade and gzdoom builder and start messing around again.

      I noticed you weren't around and wondered where you'd gone. Glad to hear 2016 wasn't a stinker, it was alright for me too.

      Gyros. That's my favorite treat.

      Indeed. With everything. Forget about other food.

      There are companies for pizzas?

      I only have those tiny home-alike pizza sheds in the entire country. (not meaning distaste of the sheds)

      I never much cared for afros myself but I would look bad with an afro.

  4. About two days ago I got my shiny new Wii U in the mail. I got the deluxe edition for like $280 or something off Amazon. The games I have now are Nintendo Land, Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and Earthbound. So far Im liking the system and hopefully buying it wasnt a mistake. Oh yeah does anyone know if buying the pro controller thingy is a good investment because it seems kinda pricey.

      I have one. I enjoyed Mario 3D World and Mario Kart 8, but lately it has been idle. The Pro Controller is a good controller. It has superior battery life to either the Dual Shock 4 or the Xbox One controller... almost freakishly long.

    3. Avoozl


      Is 3D World more of an improvement over 3D Land? 3D Land was okay but it was just too simple and easy compared to many other Mario games.

    4. ReFracture


      The late game gets decently challenging. I think it is a much better game than 3D Land was.

  5. What did I miss?

      You didn't miss Plutinya's IDgames release, that's for sure.

      I think we are loose (greatfully) on a rehabilitative stint. The collar is tighter than usual, see.

  6. Help me I gotta storm up a science fair project idea fast. I was gonna do "What Soda Produces the Biggest Geyser When Mentos are Dropped In It?" but my teacher told me that it was "done a million times." If anyone could recommend a killer science fair project that the teacher will love that would be great.

      I love the calm voice-over (2:11): "Let's try Caesium..." Right up there with "Is it a good idea to microwave an airbag?"

      Haha, yeah, I expected what would happen but that voice over just makes it hilarious.

      I might end up loosing a hand so no thanks.

      Look on the bright side: you could put before and after pictures on your poster board.

      Might as well put the severed hand itself on the board.

  7. Oh boy. Got myself a Retron 3 to replace my NES which is now having trouble playing games for some reason. I know the Retron 5 is out but I heard it had a lot of problems so ye. I bought a Game Genie to stick in the game slot because it's somewhat difficult to pull out an NES game from the system and I fear it will overtime damage the cartridge. However the SNES games are easy to pull out. Can't say much about the Genesis slot because I don't own any Genesis games. Overall I think this is a pretty good product.

    Oh yeah I forgot to mention I didn't bother trying the controllers that came with it because they felt super cheap and everyone said they were trash anyway.

    Here is the Retron 3 hooked up and playing SMB3.

      *ahem* Excuse me while I drool lustfully at that box of NES games you've got sitting there. I've considered on and off getting one of those retro systems, but I'm always worried about games that might not work perfectly (I know there are issues with at least some games using features of the NES that haven't quite been perfectly reverse-engineered). That said, for the time being, I'm quite happy with my current NES, though I think if I ever wanted to start collecting SNES games I might consider getting something like this, partly because actual SNESs tend to be more expensive than NESs, in my experience.

    2. Canofbacon


      So far every game I own I have gotten to work on it. Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt and Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt/World Class Track Meet didn't work until I got the Game Genie put in there. After that it worked fine. I think I saw someone say that Castlevania didn't work for them, but it worked first try for me, even without the Game Genie. It seems like every Retron 3 has different games it can and can't play. Weird.

      Nice. I saw these advertised a few months ago; it's good to see a positive review of them.

      These things are just missing the Master System IMO.

  8. I've been wondering... who is he?

      That's a pretty impressive research area. Props to all (not) logged in Fredriks.

      It was an obvious extension to your joke, which has now been discontinued. So I have nothing else left to add to it.
      (I've known for a long time that the real Romero has much darker hair, so it obviously isn't him in the Post Hell corner.) :p

      Anyways, it's amazing how this Fredrik guy has changed over the years.

      Leave it to Fredrick to have a job title/field of study I can't even begin to comprehend.
