    So, what kind of music do you guys like?

    Genres suck. I can't even define a lot of the artists I listen to by a single genre because they switch up their styles so often. Sometimes on the same album. I'll just sum it up and say I like dark and gloomy music with a sprinkle of good feelings. Like a grey world with an occasional rainbow. My new (and still growing) playlists so far contain the following artists: 3TEETH / Alice Glass / Atmosphere / Birthday Massacre / Blanck Mass / BONES Bring Me The Horizon / cat soup / Chelsea Wolfe / Chris Travis / CHVRCHES / Craig Xen Crim3s / Crosses / Crystal Castles / Cypress Hill / Cure / Danny Brown Dan Terminus / Denzel Curry / Death Grips / Deftones / Dir En Grey / Drew The Architect drip-133 / Emma Ruth Rundle / Enter Shikari / Front Line Assembly / ghost/\/ghoul / Ghostemane Grimes / Have A Nice Life / HEALTH / Ho99o9 / Home / How To Destroy Angels KMFDM / Lil Ugly Mane / Low Roar / M83 / Mac DeMarco / Machine Girl Marilyn Manson / Mindless Self Indulgence / Method Man / Nine Inch Nails / oOoOO / Purturbator Ramirez / Sidewalks & Skeletons / Slipknot / Smashing Pumpkins / Soundgarden / Stepdad Street Sects / $uicideBoy$ / System of a Down / Trevor Something / ToyTree / Type O Negative Whitewoods / Wu-Tang Clan / Xavier Wulf / Earl Sweatshirt / Vince Staples / monomer Gost / Highly Suspect / Fuck Buttons / Vulturehead / Crossfaith / Emmure Suicide Silence / Black Dahlia Murder / Job for a Cowboy / Oceano / Del The Funky Homosapien / Aesop Rock

    I recommend Quakespasm (and so does John Romero!). Mark V is another one that gets recommended a lot. I personally never cared for all the fancy stuff like hi-res textures or models or ports like Darkplaces. It's all too much and sucks the charm right out of the aesthetic. I like my gritty chunky pixels and low definition horrors.

    Is Split-Screen Multiplayer Dying?

    Never cared for it.

    The Dune computer game appreciation thread

    Dune was neat, but I found it kinda slow. Dune 2 was an important game but it's clunky and cumbersome to play now. Dune 2000 is like the remaster of Dune 2 and it's pretty fun, beat it a couple times. Sadly, never got to play much of Emperor. Unfortunately, being licensed titles, the likelihood of being sold again through a store like GOG is low. Much like Westwood's other licensed title Blade Runner.

    Quakespasm with the appropriate .lit files for the maps. You can find those (and .vis files for transparent water) here.

    Your favorite video game announcers.

    My favorite is Dungeon Keeper. The first game has two, the second game has only one (the ever so wonderful Richard Ridings). I like the first one's mix between the two, the other voice is harsh and demanding (Dene Carter), Riddings is deliciously evil. Ridding returned to War for the Overworld which is essentially Dungeon Keeper 3 in my eyes. Honorable mentions: Grand Theft Auto 1 and 2 for being hilarious and wacky. The canned audience you sometimes hear just further adds to the charm. C&C and it would be a toss up between the classic EVA and Cabal. Metal Slug for its similar charming cheese to GTA 1 and 2. Unreal Tournament, specifically the classic '99 voice. I didn't really like the other choices in '04 so I was happy they kept him as an option.

    Why game makers like EA are nowadays evil?

    I will say I think most of the time people do overreact, but in the case of EA they've displayed a complete lack of morals on multiple occasions. There is a clear line between being dicks and being "evil" in my mind. I feel like EA in particular has crossed that line more than a few times.

    Why game makers like EA are nowadays evil?

    I'd say a company (EA) stealing technology (football game engine iirc) from another company (Bethesda) and using said technology to profit greatly (Madden) is pretty evil, and that's just scratching the surface. Or how about the EA Spouse incident? Where EA forced unpaid insane overtimes on its employees to the point family barely ever saw them? The main plaintiff of that resulting lawsuit got $14.9 million for unpaid overtime. I'd also say intentionally mismanaging companies and involving dev companies in lawsuits just to bankrupt them is pretty scummy. Some might say a bit evil even. And now you have all this lootbox nonsense, with EA being one of the biggest offenders of being absolute financial predators. Also didn't EA host some contest a few years back that allowed people to submit indie games or something and in the contract it basically said anything you submit would be owned by EA? And when they got caught they basically reworded it to say basically the same thing but nicer? (My memory is iffy on this one) Regardless, yeah fuck EA. EDIT: And how can I forget, EA is one of the biggest offenders of releasing games dependent on a server then completely shutting them off only a few years later. What a trash company.

    Rage 2 leaked?

    The first Rage bored me to tears. I'd be welcome to a sequel that is a little less serious with some varied environments.
  13. I wouldn't put it in my top 10.

    Worst Ending in a videogame?

    I cheesed this bullshit by using a console trick to turn a small cardboard box next to the rocket into the gnome and sticking it in the rocket.

    How did you come up with your username?

    Started as CARRiON+FLOWER, which is a real flower that smells of deceased bodies. I found it morbidly beautiful. I shortened it to just CARRiON, because I often feel like rotten decaying flesh anyways. Especially when the insomnia hits. Sometimes I'll make it CARRiON-XCII, the number has significance to me. E: At one point I thought about Muerte+Perro
  19. DOOM 3 shotgun instantly comes to mind.

    Share your music Collection

    I had 200-300 CDs years and years ago, somewhere in that range iirc. It was mostly a lot of hip-hop and heavy metal. If I were start over, it would probably be a lot of folk and electronic now with some alt metal and industrial sprinkled in for good measure.
