    Game that everyone hates but you like?

    Flaming Chainsaw. That automatically makes it the best fallout to me. lol

    Game that everyone hates but you like?

    Borderlands 3. It got shit on because it's wasn't Borderlands 2 2, but the actual gunplay is so much better than its predecessor, not to mention the movement. Jumping is still janky as ever but running and sliding around during firefights feel really fluid and satisfying. Really makes me wish to have a Borderlands this kind of gameplay that has every Vault Hunter in it. A more mobile Brick, Sal or Kreig? Inject that into meeeee
  4. I find the regular shotgun to be a more balanced / versatile weapon in comparison to the SSG. For me, the SSG is strictly a "close range rocket". Bunch of fodder clumped together? SSG. Pinky demons around? SSG. Revenant? SSG. Hell Knight? Yup, SSG. So on and so forth. How long it can take to reload on a fumbled shot makes it much more of a strategic choice rather than a "workhorse" type of weapon, especially if you are in high pressure situations (Doom 2' The Living End and Plutonia's Onslaught come to mind).
  5. Well, I'll be damned. :D The last update on that page was a little over 20 years ago(!!!). Where has all the time gone? The name was quite common back then, yes, and it doesn't help that there's a zdoom mod with the same name (quite fun from what I recall). I'm not sure why it wouldn't translate; my Firefox extensions don't seem to register a non-English language either. I speak Spanish, however, so at least I don't need to translate the page. Many of the updates are Doom 3 talk--such as rumours of Reznor being kicked off the project, which makes sense considering the year. Most of the links don't work, such as their maps section. A shame, it would've been interesting to browse through. I don't think a lot of the people in that community went to or got featured anywhere else. DZ seems to have only been active for two years, too. I wonder why. Thank you for finding that! It's a nice nostalgia trip from...different times in my life. Mostly good, though!
  6. No, that doesn't ring a bell at all. The website layout reminded me of New Doom, that's for sure. I remember posts about a DoHom mod for...I think it was Edge. There might have been mentions of a mapper named Cabro, too.
  7. I appreciate this post so much, words can't even convey. I've lurked for literal decades precisely because I've felt that I haven't really "earned the right" to interact with the community. Like going to a wedding without a gift sort of thing. I've loved this game since I was 10 years old and I turn 40 this year...I've been "challenging" myself to be more present because I do eventually want to contribute to the community, but between the wedding gift analogy, social anxiety and overall impostor syndrome, it's kind of a bitch to overcome. But I'm working on it. Hopefully one day I'll feel like I actually "earned my stay" or I'll shoot a rocket at it one day, time will tell, haha. edited to add: I've lurked around for so long that I remember NewDoom, the notgod forums (original zdoom) and this one Hispanic 'doomworld' of sorts that I can't remember the name that well. Doom Zone? No idea. Been too long.

    Self-imposed challenges: how hard do you really like it?

    UV continuous with start saves only. Growing up with PSX Doom and 64, I find it best emulates the experience of having a password system. I'd do pistol starts back then but ain't got no time for that nowadays.

    what does the G in GZdoom stand for

    Great ZDoom, because ZDoom needed a big sword-like equivalent.

    Strange but maddening projectile issue [MBF21]

    That was indeed the culprit. ZDoom has a similar caveat with the projectile speed but I didn't know vanilla had a more restrictive one, thank you.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Been playing through Dark Souls III with the Cinders mod. I can never go back to vanilla DS3 again, lol. The QoL changes are too many to ever be satisfied with the amount of things it does better than the original. Also trodding through Warhammer 40k Inquisitor: Martyr. Love me some 40k.
  12. I love this. The beautiful thing about this sentence is that it not only applies to Doom maps, but to so many other things: movies, music, shows, et cetera. Sometimes you become captivated instantly by a thing, sometimes it invites you for another visit, and so on. That's how I've gotten acquainted with some of my favourite games, albums, and other things that nowadays I can't imagine not indulging into from time to time. In regards to Doom, this happened with Alien Vendetta back in the day. I found it 'ok' at the time but kept coming back to the maps I enjoyed the most and eventually grew to like 90-95% of it. Still among my top 5 to this day.

    40. I've tried all sorts. A little off to the left, to the right, up, down...
