    Doom: Annihilation update

    Bit spoilery review-ish thing The movie went by very fast. It didn't take long to get to the action and it had a small running time. Because of this it didn't overstay its welcome but also things felt very rushed, none of the action or events had time to breathe. The squad dies very fast and almost entirely to zombies (or whatever they are). The only two members of the squad that I liked were the sarge (or captain) and the main actress. The only other notable actor was Betruger. Zombies were weird. You can tell there was only literally 3 zombie actors (two in scientist garb and one with a suit and tie) You never see more than 2-3 on screen so its hard to get a sense for just how many there actually was suppose to be. They were also the typical braindead zombie that eats human flesh but they could also parkour.....? It was so random lol The imps were cool, they had the fireball charge up from Doom 64, but they weren't very mobile. In the hell sequence you can see Imps climbing walls and jumping around but for the rest of the movie its a dude in a suit. The BFG. It don't work like that. The weapons in general also looked too fake and clean. The double barrel shotgun scene was nice, but again, way too short. There was so much fanservice. From the names of past id Software characters to the Red/Blue/Yellow keycards to some of the weapons (exception to BFG) among other things. Some of it felt cringey while others I thought were nice. Overall a decent low budget action movie. It wasn't a pain to get through but I don't think I'll ever watch it again.
  3. Whenever I see Eduardo Franco, I just remember that he's the guy that cuts his own dick off in that one Netflix movie (called The Package I think?) He's absolutely got the hair down for Romero.

    Am I crazy or do you not pronounce Phobos as "Pho-bus"?

    I don't like the marine's armor. Thats about the only real complaint I have with what I'm seeing, the rest is looking good.

    John Carmack on the Joe Rogan show - it happened!

    The first hour and a half is a lot of Carmack talking about technology and the future and the rest is more about his past like id or ferraris. Rogan has barely talked at all lol Hes essentially done with rockets :(

    John Carmack on the Joe Rogan show - it happened!

    Only ~10 minutes in and while Rogan is clearly out of his element he is doing a good job of letting Carmack just speak and steering the conversation into new areas. Someone bringing a jacket with sensors in it that whenever you got shot in Quake 1 the sensors would "hit" you is pretty funny. Rogan clearly knows about Quake, name dropping Rocket Arena and Thresh nochalantly. An hour in and there's only been a couple minutes spent talking about video games, whether its about Quake or Esports or whatever. Carmack just keeps escalating into more and more fascinating subjects on technology.

    A simple method of scaling up 2D sprites with ESRGAN

    Beautiful Strife art, not so good Doom 64 result. Strife stuff just needs some small touchups like to the gun, muzzleflash, or that dudes neanderthal face. Doom 64 would be better remaking the models and doing new captures from those.

    Best way to experience Doom 64 today?

    Ex is the best way to play in my experience. Pretty faithful. That said, there just might be an official release coming soon to PC and consoles by Nightdive...

    I found the ouch face!

    I used to be able to trigger it on the Mac version of Doom 2 in the spawn room of Icon of Sin. Rocket launcher at a wall right before (like a single frame) you walk into the Megasphere and it would trigger.

    ion fury is out

    It might just be me getting old, but while I think the levels look great, the amount of detail is too busy and a lot of the readability gets lost on me. I'm finding myself getting lost probably more than I should be as a result.

    Doom: Annihilation update

    Is the quality of the video incredibly bad for anyone else? Its like it refuses to stream correctly half the time and the other half it looks good. I like that the clip has more demons in it than the entirety of the 05 movie *edit* Just realized the teaser on the website is slightly longer than that twitter teaser. I was wondering where the SSG was at
