  1. i know there are a lot of peeps here that dont like brutal doom...but man, its extremely satisfying to me when i'm walking from imp to imp or even pinkies with a super shotgun and just blowing them into bloody gibbly bits with one blast from that thing....i could do that all day.
  2. Our family got a Packard Bell with a 486DX4-100mhz with I believe 4MB RAM and a 250MB HDD as our first computer in early 1995. I remember it running doom very well. It was right as the Pentium 75 was coming out and was the cheaper option i recall. Kinda wish i still had it for nostalgia purposes lol
  3. wow, awesome! that was a quick find in a sea of wads lol...i'll have to play it again and relive being 15 years old again! Thanks for finding it :)
  4. anyone remember any wads from one of the Demon Gate CDs from the mid 90s that had the midi of Meat Puppets' "Backwater" on it? I remember that sticking with me back when i first played it and thought it was so cool that a song from the radio was in Doom. lol i was probably 14 or 15 and new to the whole doom wad thing so i was easily amused!
  5. it actually looked pretty close to the PC version from what I remembered. I cant remember too clearly how the shot sounded or how it behaved when multiple enemies were on screen, but I do remember it gibbing soldiers and imps
  6. as far as i know its the only one like that, but someone please correct me if i'm wrong! I'm pretty sure the BFG was even shown in the game manual for 32x. i love sharing the story on how i accidentally found the cheat code...this is early 1995, long before my family got internet access to look up online. my brother and i were obsessed with Doom as it was brand new to us. (we didnt have a family computer yet)...but anyways. it was taco night so we wolfed them down and rushed to the 32x to play...my brother beating me to it, never bothered to wipe his hands so the controller was all greasy when it was my turn. I took it, put it in my t-shirt to wipe it and when i looked up at the screen i saw Doom guys eyes were white! then i scrolled through the weapons and saw that i had everything...even the BFG! my 14year old self and 10 year old brother were astounded! I had by sheer luck, mashed the buttons just right to enter the god mode/all weapons code in to the 6-button controller. so from then on, i would mash the buttons with my t-shirt until i got the code entered correctly, never knowing exactly what button combination actually did it. lol the good old days.
  7. 32x doom never had the BFG accessible to find in game unless you used cheat codes
  8. this is an excellent mod! loving it so far. i really like the setting and Lovecraft-ian theme. great use of colors and cool to see monsters from Blood, Quake and Heretic make appearances! awesome job on the music. 10/10 so far! Yuki...have you done any other maps? i'd love to play more like this!
  9. Where can I download these to play? I'm either too tired or too dumb to find the link Thanks EDIT: i just saw Jimmys post a few up from mine....that explains it...i was too dumb to see that lol
  10. i save every time i kill an archvile :)
  11. Here is a story of how I accidentally found God Mode and all weapons cheats on the 32x back in the day: one night not long after my brother and I got doom 32x Christmas of 1994 I believe, we had tacos for dinner. eating in a rush to try and beat my brother back to the game, our hands were still oily and greasy...he beat me to it so I had to wait until he died and i could take over in game. when i took the controller in my hand it was taco grease slippery so I took my t-shirt to it and was wiping it off. when I looked up at the screen, I noticed my eyes were white and I had every weapon in the game and had no idea what happned. we were in total disbelief when we scrolled through and saw the BFG (which as I came to find out later that it wasnt actually anywhere in the game to find and could only be acquired with cheats). Keep in mind this is before we had internet and I had no idea what I did and this was our first experience with Doom lol...so the next time we fired the game up, I would sit there and try and duplicate the method of putting the sega 6-button controller in my shirt and mashing the buttons all different ways until the eyes lit up white! lol it actually worked a couple times after that! i think it was in some video game magazine not long after that showed the actual button combo. thanks for taking the time to ready my pointless, yet funny story! i think i'll get some tacos this weekend and play some doom.
  12. IIRC, you had to press up on the D-pad, all 6 buttons (abc and xyz) and the top "mode" button all at the same time. funny how stuff comes back to you after 20 years just thinking about it out of the clear blue
  13. My first Doom experience was Christmas 1994 on the 32x. Didnt have a home PC at the time so that was my only way to play it. My brother and I spent ALL of Christmas break playing. We were obsessed. Little did we know at the time how crappy that version was compared to the PC...later in '95 we got our first home family computer with Windows 95...486 DX4 100Mhz. I remember being in K-Mart and finding some oddly packaged CD with the shareware version on it. Didnt know what I was doing so I ran it directly off the CD and constantly got the blue disc icon lol...but i was blown away how much better it was than the 32x. The colors were so vibrant, the music was so much cooler and you could actually see the backs and sides of the monsters! lol we promptly went to Egghead Software the next weekend and my parents bought us The Ultimate Doom and the rest is history. 22 years later and the obsession is still strong.
  14. 32x even though the music sucks and a lot was cut out because of the good times me and my brother had playing that Christmas. that was our first taste of doom so we didnt know how much it sucked compared to the PC at the time. it was amazing for us.
  15. ahh yes, i remember seeing the heart and remembered that from the original! i was really hoping to find the crazy smiley faces or whatever they are called somewhere too. those always stood out for me in the original.
  16. seeing the decorative doors in Hell with the goat heads and skulls brought back a warm fuzzy feeling for me
  17. my brother and I used to call pinky demons "Pigs" back when we first started playing it in 94 on 32x. partly because of the snorting sound they made when killed and the fact that they were pink lol
  18. when i first played Doom back in '95 on the 32x, I thought the zombie man growl that you hear when they are alert and nearby looking for you, but not in sight was the sound of Doomguy breathing after running so much lol also, i remember the first few times i played i thought the sound of the door opening was actually a demon/monster sound lol you have to remember i was 14 and the first person shooter was a mind blowing experience and i was completely clueless! :)
  19. maybe its my 14yr old self (when i first played the original Doom) speaking here, but I for one, love the excessive gibbing! MUCH better than Doom 3 and the lack of giblets at all! i've missed them :)
  20. no doubt. game runs silky smooth on ultra for me and looks amazing. i can live with a few crashes from time to time and i'm sure it will get patched.
  21. add me to the list...happened today once. first time in the 2 hrs (if that) that i've been playing. just went straight to the desktop during a big imp fight. i7 6770k 4.0ghz 16gb ddr4 msi radeon r9 390 (newest drivers that fixed the fps problem in doom) msi gaming mobo 250gb ssd
  22. also for some reason, the sound of punching a cacodemon was ultra satisfying...even tho the sound is the same for all monsters. maybe its because they are like big punching bags!
  23. the gibbing sound by far...my others include the Baron of Hell's alert roaring, the trademark door opening sound and the Cyberdemon's walking sound. scared the shit out of me back in the day! a nice warm fuzzy memory for me was when me and my brother first saw the "bruiser bros" at the end of the 1st episode and we freaked the hell out. that moment and sound has always stuck with me ever since.
  24. So, I keep reading that a lot of people are having problems with their Radeon R9 390s (and that unfortunately happens to be the card I have) and I'm STILL waiting for my collectors edition pre-order from Amazon to arrive. So how is it running for those with Radeon cards? I dont want to play this game if I cant get it to run at 60 frames on ultra @ 1080. :( i7 6770k @ 4.0ghz MSI Radeon R9 390 8GB VRAM 16GB DDR4 250GB SSD MSI gaming mobo
  25. so yeah, I originally had a delivery time of "by 8pm May 14th"...never showed up...now the tracking says "we're sorry your package is late, if it hasnt arrived by May 18th please come back for more options" this pisses me off...it was bought with Prime too. anyone else dealing with this bullshit? sorry to rant, i'm itching so bad for this game right now though!
