    Bus Slayer - An AI that plays Revenant Bus

    This is the kind of innovation I can get behind.

    Favorite Source Port?

    Zandronum all the way, unless it can't run something, then I switch to GZDoom. I appreciate simple multiplayer and don't mind not having edge distortion or lense flares.

    How would you rework the Arch-Vile?

    And somehow, chaingunners are involved.

    How would you rework the Arch-Vile?

    I like the archvile but if I had to change it, these are my first impressions. I think I'd make it slower. If you ask me its whizzing around makes it far more obnoxious to try and lose line of sight, especially with dooms classic control scheme. If it were like a healer/tank type monster that'd be interesting imo. The fact that it zips around means its pretty hard to nail a shot and it's not particularly fun imo to successfully land a shot and still have about twenty to go. At the very least, I wish shooting it would cause it to stagger for a little bit to give a chance for the player to run out of its line of sight or even attack some more. I'd also change the flame animation to be wrapped around the edges of the screen instead of smack in the center.

    Top 25 Cacoward Snubs

    I agree that for a consumer, gameplay is more vital than technical achievement. That is true. However, for a general 'greatest doom mods of the year' selection of awards, I think that the pure innovation or ability on display is often award-worthy, regardless of how fun or not fun something is for a consumer to play as if it were a standalone game. EDIT: hit enter prematurely For instance: Doom 64 Retribution is a fantastic mod, despite the fact that often times Doom 64's level design and encounters aren't very fun at all. The way that they managed to faithfully recreate Doom 64 on the gzdoom engine though, and even tastefully improve some areas, is definitely worth a cacoward once the mod is finished if you ask me.

    Things about Doom you just found out

    E3M2 is shaped like a hand.

    The "stupid mod idea" thread

    Every weapon fires bfg shots except the bfg, which fires pistol shots. The effect is given to all the enemies as well.

    Another DOOM movie being made?

    If you consider a backstory that has objectively nothing to do with the main plot of the game 'integral' than sure I guess he his. Idk I guess I just can't tell what 'making the doomguy a part of the movie' would even entail. Is it shoving his backstory in haphazardly? Casting a guy with a similar looking face? There's nothing to work with. When I think about the tone and story of classic doom, the doom guy is the last thing I think about. The locations, the demons, the guns etc are more important to me. Heck, honestly the guns are more likable as protagonists than the doomguy is. Its fine in a video game because I'm to one making all the decisions and feeling the emotions, but in a movie version theres nothing forcing them to like, cast a guy with a similar face, or work his backstory in anywhere. It's all besides the point.

    Teaser pic of "Sonic" movie pretty dang weird

    I'm definitely watching this nonsense in theaters.

    Another DOOM movie being made?

    I think you're probably mostly right, but I'm a little more optimistic. Maybe we'll see some more monsters like imps, which can easily just be guys in costumes. More complex monsters that don't directly interact with the characters like a Cacodemon might make it too.

    Less annoying E3M7

    If the maps of chaos can be released publicly without any second glances, I see no reason why this couldnt be

    Top 25 Cacoward Snubs

    No thats totally fair, I just think that the point of the cacowards is to reward excellent mods more than excellent 'games' if that makes sense. Sometimes the sheer vision or technical know-how behind a mod is enough for it to deserve something imo
