  1. Man, if you want out of here for good, why don't you just ask? Or just leave? I guess I get your desire to go out in style and leaving a lasting horrific impression, though, so who am I kidding.

    The Metal / Rock Music Fans

    80's thrash NOFX is best NOFX.
  3. Drone, noise, musique concrete!
  4. If you had asked me about "social justice warriors" circa 2012-2013, I might've grumbled something about them. To me at the time the term referred to those detached cultists on social media who ride on the coattails of prominent social issues as a mere pretext to their own nastiness -- douchey preps, basically. That's why they only ever seem to pick the dumbest, most insignificant battles, such as dumb celebrity tweets, names of rock bands, whether a corporate Disney movie is "intersectional" enough, and whether someone's hairstyle is an act of "imperialism" -- all while incessantly sprucing up their social media pages, never really doing anything. I still think that those people exist, but I wouldn't think to use the above term to designate them now, because in our current discourse it simply means anyone to the left of Trump, or anyone who expresses any care about social justice whatsoever, or anyone who even implies that (the horror!) things like inequality aren't because some people are simply of better breeding and therefore you should just be a good little meek peasant of magically predetermined caste and pick my fucking turnips, pleb.

    E1 cult - why?

    I've noticed that there's a certain preference among many Doomers for E1 of Doom, and I wonder if there's any particular reason for that other than nostalgia. I don't see the same fetishism, so to speak, for something like Episode 3 (which I find to be much better), a section of Doom II, Plutonia, etc. Is it a matter of E1 having a certain design and immersion that Doom's experience afterward doesn't have? How do you explain and quantify this? I'll grant that playing E1 of all things through now would bring me the closest to the original feeling I got from first playing the game, but I don't see that as making it necessarily better.

    Your least favourite enemy?

    Chaingunners + Archviles alone = Hell (even by Hell's standards)
  8. What "scores"? What "male feminist"? What "crusade"? Are you referring to how we gave a prediction for how someone else would rate the movie (for clearly divergent if not undisclosed reasons) and expressed brief bewilderment at some of the ire surrounding it? Ah, damn, sorry we ̶l̶e̶t̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶s̶e̶e̶n̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶i̶n̶c̶i̶t̶e̶ ̶a̶ ̶l̶o̶n̶g̶ ̶s̶c̶r̶e̶e̶d̶ forced our agenda down your throat again.

    Most annoying sounds in video games?

    I remember in Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds the deathsound of Royal Naboo infantrymen could be grating as fuck. "YO-HA-HAAAAAAAAEEEEEEEEEeeegghh" over and over again. You can hear it repeat a bit starting 18:22 in this video. You can imagine how annoying it gets after a while.
  10. Heh, glad my picture was a hit. :3 Just a little ribbin'. I had already been aware of GoatLord's affinity for psychedelics, which includes shrooms, which kind of rhymes with Doom; so between that and his recent posts about what it means to know and to hallucinate, well, I saw an opportunity too rich to pass up.
  11. Women ...Nope. That's a good idea, though. There should be a filter for "SJW" too.
  12. Hell, I don't know. The first that comes to mind is any good recording of an orchestra doing Gustav Holst's The Planets. I'm not even much of a classical listener, but I got one such CD and found what I heard to be singularly moving and, dare I say, transcendental. I also like that I got it for pretty damn cheap due to the fact that people generally don't buy that kind of stuff. Funny to think that I'd have to pay thrice the amount for some disposable manufactured pop dreck. I still can't definitely point to any album as standing head and shoulders above the rest in terms of emotional content or quality.
  13. Mechazawa, if the scientific explanations given to you for the origin and progression of things are nonsense, what is the right one according to you, and on what basis and reasoning? Something having been called and used as a "theory" doesn't mean it hasn't been verified in the years since, and certainly not by some magic luck/coincidence. Not coincidence, and I don't think any of us are calling it that. More like literally billions of years of coalescing adaptation, struggle, and death. It certainly wasn't a smooth ride. We're still on that long, slow journey, and one could easily make the argument that we've been taking a few steps back lately. Try to actually follow through with this subtopic this time instead of just silently abandoning it and moving to a new one while trying to tie it all together with your "superstitious atheists" incredulity. Speaking of "insults with no answers"...

    Most annoying sounds in video games?

    When I used to play Unreal Tournament on InstaGib with bots, I'd rack up kill-chains pretty quick, to the point where I'd keep hearing, "M-M-M-M-MONSTER KILL!" over and over and over. Got annoying and kind of discouraged me from continuing my winning streak. +1 on "plebs are needed!" in Caesar II. I haven't played the game in years, but I think I had a copy of it that was buggy, because it would make that message even when I did send plebs to whatever task was needed. That, coupled with some other things, just made me want to quit the game and not bother.
  15. 66.6% They should make a movie about the fucking reactions to, and debates about, this movie. I think I'd like that one more. I don't even have plans to see the new Ghostbusters. Not because of any vendetta either, I just don't feel the need.
  16. No meaning to you, perhaps. I apply meaning to it and find it worthwhile, and I don't think it's necessary to be given some meaning from an outside source, especially one that I don't have sufficient reason/evidence to believe exists with all certainty. The possibility of there being nothing more does not negate the value I find in various things along the way -- which again, by the way, I find superior to a state of nothingness. Why is this so hard to grasp? Also, it seems rather loose to call that superstition. "A belief or notion, not based on reason or knowledge, in or of the ominous significance of a particular thing, circumstance, occurrence, proceeding, or the like." This is the most general definition of the word I found that does not mention belief in something supernatural; and since I already gave you reasons why the concept of eternal oblivion doesn't make me want to off myself (a ridiculous notion) and I know the things that I like, you can't correctly call me superstitious. That's not what I said. But I don't think death is. You seem to falsely assume that: -We share your dismal view of existence or are obliged to. -We share your view of meaning and its source. -We have atheist (and perhaps agnostic) leanings merely as some kind of rebellion. Not the case for me -- in fact, I was raised in an atheist/agnostic household. It bears repeating that I haven't totally ruled out the possibility of an afterlife. I've recently developed an interest in the esoteric, and would be glad to be able to return. I'm just not about to put my money on a beyond as a reason to live my existence, especially when it comes to enduring garbage from other people -- and though there's nothing wrong with believing in an afterlife, you've gotta admit that it's been one of the most effective tools in getting people to accept getting pushed around. "You don't have proof either" is not excuse for lack of proof -- and in the end, how could I prove to you that I find my life meaningful, if only by my design? Even if I could, you clearly don't share that sense of meaning. At this point, Mechazawa, the question with your attitude is less, "Why don't we kill ourselves?" so much as, "Why don't you?" I'm not saying you should, but you seem so bent on convincing us how bad existence is and how there's an afterlife that somehow redeems it all. I'd assume you think there's a divine consequence for suicide, right? By the way, pulling the "teen angst" card is pretty funny for someone so bent on being the "COLD HARD REAL CYNICAL REALIST WHO REALIZES DEATH IS BETTER THAN LIFE WHY DONT' YOU GO KILL YOURSELF" guy.
  17. Because I'd still like it? My net experience has been, and likely will continue to be, better enough than the non-experience of deep sleep. Naturally I'll want to keep that up for a good long while, even -- especially -- if my consciousness should eventually cease altogether.
  18. ^Sorry, but that's dumb. The fact of something having to end permanently doesn't negate the value of the journey. I'm sure plenty of people would want to hold on to life all the more feverishly knowing (or at least thinking) that nothing would follow.
  19. No, at least certainly not the way that humans have by and large come to conceive of them. I'm not sure that there is such a thing as a hereafter. I would certainly like to come back and have a wider breadth of experience, and I would like that for a lot of other people, especially those who got a raw deal in life; but to paraphrase the bright Carl Sagan, our preferences don't determine what's true. I can hope, though. I would imagine that if there is anything like Heaven or Hell, it's more of a transitory period in which one feels the collective essence of all their actions and/or experiences, which can be a net positive or negative. Kind of like the "life flashing before my eyes" experience people talk about, but maybe a bit longer and fuller. However, the notion of Heaven and Hell being actual places of eternal fate that everyone goes to one of depending on how well they followed a particular system and set of rules seems like a bunch of fearmongering crap to me. Social engineering at its worst.

    Favourite Doom sound?

    Not really Doom-specific, but I love the sound of a MIDI open hi-hat hit. One of my favorite things about "In the Dark", actually.

    Specific Things in Doom that Amuse You Greatly

    Good ones in here! I'll add some: -Archviles getting into fights with monsters, killing them, resurrecting them, killing them again, etc, which sometimes leads to them being so distracted that they don't seem to notice me slaughtering them. -Me leaving a room that I didn't realize had an active pain elemental, and coming back to a room clogged up with lost souls. -Me knocking back a group of floating cacodemons one by one, which makes me feel like I'm playing with balloons (especially if the room is kind of colorful, like in that hall at the beginning of Tricks & Traps). -When a demon has made enemies with other demons surrounding it and can't focus on attacking one long enough before getting distracted by another, to the point where it just spins around, gets overwhelmed, and dies. -The sound of a group of revenants dying in rapid succession, especially because they don't sound the way they look like they're dying. Also, +1 on those dumbass ogres in Quake, especially when their grenades hit them and they just keep on killing themselves.

    The Doom Confessional Booth

    ^You're definitely not the only one. As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I've never really played Doom on multiplayer save for bots on Doom Legacy back in early 2005.
