    unpopular retro opinions

    Resident Evil was garbage when it came out, and why it got popular still baffles me to this day. Zombies? Boring. Jump scares? Cheap. Shitty control scheme? wut. I can understand the control scheme being weird in Silent Hill since you are a regular joe but in RE you're a fucking cop/special agent/whatever it is. It shouldn't be cumbersome to move around and aim your weapon. You were trained for this. Come on. Zelda never stood out to me in any way at all. It always felt uninspired to me, nothing about the story stood out to me as 'great'. Very plain aesthetic, too aimed at children (imo), and I was exposed to it as a child. That being said, LttP is the best entry in the series to me to this day. Link's Awakening was an interesting story, different from the usual 'get the triforce, stop Ganon, save the princess' shtick and overall felt like its own thing. I appreciated that. On the subject of Nintendo, for how much people complain about other developers 'reusing assets' or being lazy, Nintendo has had the same formula with Mario for decades and you never hear people bitch about it. Still Bowser. Still mushrooms, and goombas, and...whatever the fuck. 2D, 3D, all the game are the fucking same. Yet CoD is the king of rehashes? (Not that I am defending CoD; that's still garbage) Mario Kart doesn't count, of course, since they actually did something different there but it's still nothing to write home about. FF7 is a hot convoluted mess that was ugly back then completely fell apart after disc 1 ended. Picks up again near the end of the third disc, but it fails to capitalize on the final area by giving it a stupid song and making it dull and cumbersome to traverse. Half Life's most interesting aspect is its creature design, nothing more. Been a while since I thought of these, if I remember anything else I'll jot it down.

    SIGIL v1.21 - New Romero megawad [released!]

    Is the ST in a wad? If it is, I'd say from GZDoom from a shortcut with the two files added.

    Need help running some of mods.

    You are running two monster mods together. Bad idea.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Currently fluctuating between Doom, Bloodborne and Diablo 3. Three wildly different styles but hey.

    What do you listen to when you're playing Doom?

    Either Death Metal or Dark Ambient. Nothing else makes it justice.
  11. On the subject of custom wads, I want to recommend BloodStain, Hellbound and Sunlust. These are all on idgames and are fantastic megawads. If you are looking to spice up good ol' Doom II, look up Doom II in Name Only and Maps of Chaos, the latter of which spruces up the original maps in interesting ways.

    Who made this sprite?

    Sorry for the bump, but the shotgun is by GAA1994.
  13. Most interesting mod! Will this detect switches in secret sectors? Or can that be disabled?

    Share a random fact about yourself

    I've never been a competitive person. In fact, the concept of pvp bothers me to a great extent. Yet I played UT2k4 with bots till my eyes bled.

    What do you listen to when you're playing Doom?

    Oh man. DSO is such a transcendent feeling for me. Completely different from Doom but oh so amazing...wordless, even. Good choice.

    What do you listen to when you're playing Doom?

    Indeed it is. My absolute fav track off of all his works. I get lost in it. I could (and have) listened to it on repeat for extended bouts of editing/writing.

    What do you listen to when you're playing Doom?

    Something ambient. Either the PSX or N64 soundtrack or something by Lustmord or anything in that vein. On occasion I'll load up some death metal, since I grew up listening to Morbid Angel and King Diamond (not DM but still) when I would play Doom as a young 'un.

    What are your Favorite Heretic and Hexen Weapons?

    Heretic's weapons never really did it for me. I felt they lacked "oomph" to them. HeXen, however, has the Firestorm, the Frost Shards and the Bloodscourge. Freakin' loved those. Heretic needed something like that.
