    What do you consider to be the most annoying game mechanic?

    Slippery ice in ice stages are something I hated in retro games, and still hate when modern games do it. I can see you enjoying it if you're good at platforming and stuff, but personally I'd just prefer being able to stand still and not have to fight against momentum very time I so much as fart in any direction. Quick time events. The only time I would say I actually enjoyed QTEs was in Metal Gear Rising, and even then it has some really annoying ones, like when those gorilla robots grab you and you have to rock your analog stick back and forth real fast to the point where anything short of breaking the damn thing will make you fail and take damage. Worst one I can think of though(and mind you, I don't play that many modern AAA games, so there's probably worse out there) is in Sleeping Dogs. The enemy type that grapples you and makes you do QTEs to avoid his attacks is incredibly NOT fun to fight and completely ruins the otherwise awesome kung-fu action in the combat. Overly complicated skill trees, and upgrades and such. I do enjoy it when it's done like in the original Deus Ex, where it's simple and straight forward, but modern games overly complicate it usually and have several "forks" and requirements, and billions of skills, and by that point I can't be bothered to keep track of any of that. Looter shooters. [let me reiterate for the 500th time how much I hate Borderlands] And lastly, while I don't think it is a mechanic, but more so a trend, is unbroken first person narrative. This might be a bit of a hot take, but for everything good Half-Life did, I absolutely hate that it popularized the whole "first 20 minutes of the game is a boring slog to help you 'get immersed in the universe'", and sections where you're just standing there having exposition spat at you. That's one thing that makes me enjoy the Half-Life series as a whole considerably less, and makes me hate any other game that attempts to copy it. Just let me play the damn game I paid for.

    Where would you sleep in Doom?

    Pretty much anywhere in the early maps of Lost Civilization.

    Arachnotron turns into ham when it dies?

    When I was small, I thought that the pink part of it's corpse was a big, otherwise unseen tongue. Only realized years later that it was the part of it's face that's still attached to the legs.

    The Ancient Gods - Impressions and Story Spoilers

    Kinda sad that Hayden went full villain so quickly into the DLC. I was expecting that to happen ofc, but I'm gonna miss the banter between him and the Slayer. I wonder he'll show up again to begrudgingly help Doom guy, if he does indeed lead "heaven's army". They are technically on the same side even if Doom guy kicked his ass black and blue.
  5. That's a fair point of view. Now that the hype has died down I myself notice that Doom 2016 was in a very nice middle ground where it brought something new to the table, but didn't go too overboard with it. Eternal is very overwhelming with the strategy, which leads to fatigue unless you're a pro; and the "combat puzzle" angle does take a lot of freedom away from the player and this DLC looks like it takes that and shoots it through the stratosphere. That boss battle at the end drags on for a painfully long time too it seems. As for the plot, I thought it didn't matter much since you could skip cutscenes unlike in Doom 2016, but you're also highly discouraged to do so since everything that happens in-game is so contextual (not to mention, Hugo seemed quite annoyed at that one speedrunner skipping story, which for me is a clear indication of the developer intent). I don't know how I feel about the relationship between Doom guy and the Maykrs. The angels are pretty manipulative which is interesting, but the way they wrote the friction between them and Doom guy just makes him seem like Kratos: part deux. Part of me wishes that Doom guy had no relation to them at all, and was just a wild card, like say, trying to stop them from waging war on the demons and ending humanity as collateral or something like that. I don't dislike Eternal, and I did think it brought some interesting ideas to the table, but with the power of hindsight I got several mixed feelings about it now, and the way the DLC is presented isn't doing it any favors. I do hope they streamline the experience with future DLCs, but I also find that unlikely. I feel like if they do anything other than double down on what they're already doing the most people will be turned off.

    So sad that I will never have a chimp friend

    What's Your Favorite Doom Enemy Ass?

    As an ass man of culture, I feel like this is my chance to be needlessly vulgar so let's go through these: Zombie/Sarge(Doom guy by extension): While we never get to have a good look at them cheeks because of the military garb, I would be willing to bet they got some juicy cheeks on them. I mainly say this because of the mild shortstack-ish build of most Doom humanoid characters. Imp: Delicious, nice, plump. I don't blame Doom guy for the Imp encounter. Pinkie/Spectre: Too small, specially for their comically disproportional body. Maybe if they got some of the mass from that massive head into their ass I'd be willing to reconsider. As for the spectre in particular, come on man, half of the fun of a nice pair of badonks is the visual appeal of it. Baron/Knight: Firm and toned, and I would expect nothing less from the powerlifters of Hell. Cacodemon/Pain Elemental: No cheeks in sight. And while they have clearly defined holes, the fact that they're naturally, permanently gaped is worrying, specially given their size. I wouldn't venture close to anything that can't clench their sphincter at least moderately. Lost Soul: I wouldn't give these the time of day. And i'm not even talking about their lack of a butt, I just think they don't deserve any love. Fuckers. Mastermind/Arachnotron: Given how their lower body is mechanical, you could probably upgrade it and give it a nice pair of jiggly silicon cheeks. The four legs would give them a terrifying twerking advantage. Cyberdemon: The best one, and my vote for this. I know it's a popular opinion, but there's a reason for that. He's HUGE, that means he has HUGE cheeks! Spank and smack! Chaingunner: Like the zombies, but on steroids. Cheeks like these go against the Geneva convention. Revenant: what Mancubus: Hank Hill ass. It's so flat despite it's amount of body fat, and the crack is barely visible. Even if he had more junk in his truck, it would probably be mishapen and gross. Sorry man, I love the Mancubus, but they get a solid "no" from me in this regard. Archvile: While their butts in a vacuum are nothing to write home about, that waist-to-hip ratio though will make them worth your time. See people, it's not all about the butt, but what's around it too. Wolfenstein SS: Same thing I said for the zombies, although I'm giving them a caveat- Given their extreme beliefs, and the way they lionize themselves, if they don't live up to their own perfectionist standards, I want nothing to do with those cheeks. Commander Keen: That's fucked up, he's a child Icon of Sin: lmao skull fucking John Romero: Listen, he has a beautiful wife and children. I wouldn't in a million years want to be a home wrecker.

    Most recent movie you saw

    I saw "The Platform" yesterday on Netflix. I'm still intrigued by the concept of the movie even now. Even if you're not into the whole social commentary of it I still highly recommend as it is a frightening concept. Probably one of my favorite recent horror movies (or thrillers if you wanna split hairs :p )

    What / how many languages do you speak?

    Native portuguese, and English as my second language. I also want to learn Japanese because I'm a stupid weeb.
  10. I have loved the idea of liminal spaces for a long time. I want to share my joy with all of you now.

    Cacodemons live-birth or lay eggs?

    I think they, and all other demons are asexual. The holes in the back are for locomotion which I theorized in a cursed thread many moons ago. I really don't wanna think as that hole in the brain as a cloaca. That would imply other stuff comes out of there as well.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Like I said in another thread, playing GTA V. It has surpassed all of my expectations and I'm having an absolute blast with it. Did 3 playthroughs of Hylics 2 as well. Highly recommend Hylics 2 if you're into weird, surreal and psychedelic aesthetic.

    What "Lost Media" are you interested in?

    There's a documentary about trepanation in which a woman drills a hole in her own cranium, which sounds interesting to put it mildly. I got interested in a certain "Saki Sanobachi" too, but sadly that's been all but confirmed to be fake.

    What's the best movie you've ever seen?

    As far as I care, Evil Dead 2 is the best movie ever made. There are many movies I wanna mention here, but Evil Dead 2 just has them all beat for me personally. But still, shout out to The Thing, Braindead(Dead Alive in the US), Bad Taste, Toxic Avenger, Re-Animator, and anything by Dario Argento, and many, many others.

    Worst movies you've ever seen

    I remember watching "2012" one time (remember when the world was supposed to end?) Good god I have never been more apathetic, bored and disinterested in a movie in my whole life. I cannot remember a single character, or what the plot was other than the world ending. The disaster scenes are pretty much the only thing it has going for it, everything else is just the typical uninspired Hollywood crap at it's dullest. Stuff like Birdemic and Jack and Jill you can tell it's shit from the get go. The type of movie I find truly insulting are the "insidiously bad" ones. The type no one really talks about when discussing bad movies, and which you could even mistake for a good movie if you weren't paying enough attention.
