  1. This is great news for Switch players!! Good job for keeping this game alive team! It does suck though that due to the fact that XB1 and PS4 don't have openGL that they cannot get a port. I'd love one for Xbox but it's understandable i guess. Off Topic: I tried getting a regular Switch brand new (not used) and man, they are hard to find for the normal price. Usually they are sold out and price scalped everywhere else. I can't use the Switch Light because of my neck issues that i am currently going through so i would need to use one that's hooked up to a TV.

    What was your first DOOM experience?

    I know i played Doom 64 sometime around the early 2000's (i may even have rented it in the late 90's but i doubt it) so i'm just going to count the original Doom as the first time. The first time i played any port of the original Doom was around 2005 on the Xbox via Doom 3: Limited Collector's Edition. I would of been 15 ish. So Doom 64 or Doom 3 would of been my first Doom game tbh, followed by that port of Doom/Doom II. Like i said, i may have played Doom 64 beforehand as i did own an N64 in the late 90's but i don't think i played many M rated games (besides Perfect Dark) at the time. Not until i was 12 ish and i got a PS2 and GTA III that is ;)

    Eddie Van Halen has died

    R.I.P. EVH. One of my main influences even though i don't really play many Van Halen songs on guitar. They are one of my fav bands and obviously he contributed so much to guitar and music in general (even keyboard and guitar amplification). I used to listen to this guitar solo from an '89 Japan show from a bootleg all the time before school (back in highschool). It would always pump me up as well as wake me up too. I got into playing guitars with Floyd Roses on them due to him as well as owning a few 80's Kramers thanks to him (one could use a new neck but i'll never find one). Also, I heard the first record as well as 1984 when i was pretty young. Eruption to me was just like "WTF?", and this was in the late 90's when i was a kid still. I couldn't imagine what hearing that was like back in the late '70's. Rest in Peace Eddie.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Final Fantasy VII on XB1. I've only briefly played it before so i don't really know the game or the series so i figured i'd start with VII and it was on sale. So far i actually like it a lot. There are a few "boosters" that make it easier for beginners (like me) that you can enable at any time such as: restoring party members' max HP, MP and filling their LIMIT gauge at any time and you can toggle random encounters on/off also. I can see why this game is such a classic. The story is really, really good. I don't even mind the blocky characters tbh. I mean, i play Doom and Quake so why would I? Haha! SNK 40th Anniversary Collection on XB1. It has a bunch of vintage SNK games including Ikari Warriors, Beast Busters and Prehistoric Isle and it also includes a museum as well as a soundtrack area. Unfortunately it doesn't include the soundtracks for every game and i've been having control troubles with some games. Once in a while the character (or w/e i'm playing as) will float upwards toward the top of the screen, no matter what game i play or what controller i use. The game has its issues but if you catch it on sale it's good fun. Doom/Doom II on XB1. Still playing the newly added WAD's. Actually i'm still going through TNT on HMP difficulty (or trying to at least). I might need to tone it down a bit. I still suck with a controller lol. Doom/Doom II on PC. I still mess with WAD's on PC but not as often anymore unfortunately. When i'm feeling good i'll play through a few maps though.

    Rescue of Earth

    I mean, the fact that there is a huge language barrier here might also be a problem...just saying.

    What's your favourite DOOM source port?

    GZDoom because i like how it "feels" control/mouse wise even though i play a ton of vanilla WAD's (the Doom Strict setting is good for that). Otherwise i do have Crispy Doom set up as well as PrBoom+/GLBoom+ (the older 2.5.1.4 versions). For MP i guess Zandronum. I've never played against other people tbh; only bots, so i don't play MP very often.

    Should there be a new Quake Port?

    Hell yes i think there should be new ports for consoles! Not really remakes but just modernized ports like what Doom recently received. Not sure what consoles though as new ones are coming out soon (not that i plan on buying one anytime soon though, if at all this gen).
  8. I was actually just playing the Xbox 360 port and that one could really use some updating (an auto-map option for one). Also the music is slow for some reason as well as the turning sensitivity being slow. Anyways i don't want to go offtopic again so this is the last i'll talk about it here. Oops, i totally forgot about that. It's Raven Software not id Software... Anyways, back to Doom talk.

    Controller Doomers - how's it going?

    It's definitely harder for me to play with a controller than a keyboard/mouse but it's also very doable at the same time. Changing weapons is slower, even with weapon shortcuts (a controller can't fit them all) and aiming isn't as accurate but i just either strafe more or just play on a lower difficulty than i normally would. It's def not as bad as something such as SNES or PlayStation Doom though. Having joysticks helps a ton! Also, the fact that you only aim horizontally and have auto-aim helps a bit too ;) If my GPU had two HDMI outputs i'd def have my PC hooked up to my TV and play via GZDoom since i might be able to bind my buttons better but since it only has one, to my monitor it stays lol. The damn thing has like 3 display port outs which are of absolutely no use to me and since DVI/VGA doesn't carry sound (and i don't have any extra 3.5mm ports on my PC to carry the sound) that's a no go as well. For now i just play Doom/Doom II via my Xbox One. I even have Doom 64, Doom 3, Doom 2016 and Doom Eternal on it as well and they all play fine.
  10. About that PCDOOM.WAD info, here's where that page leads: https://web.archive.org/web/20130407060714/http://rome.ro/lee_killough/articles/doomconf.shtml It's a transcript of an online Doom conference by CGW with Shawn Green and American McGee and they discuss Doom II which wasn't released yet. It took place in September of '94. It mentions the guy who made PCDOOM.WAD (and some of his other WADs) at the beginning and a few other places as well. 

     

    Example: "[Note: PCDOOM.ZIP is also available here. Both are modeled on Ziff-Davis HQ bldg at 1 Park Avee, New York. PARKDO.ZIP is the 11th floor, where Computer Shopper and Windows Sources make their home, and PCDOOM.ZIP is the 4th floor, home of PC Magazine and PC Labs. Both are excellent creations of Steve Baldwin, an editor for Computer Shopper. --RL, sysop]"

     

    I guess he was an editor for Computer Shopper which was a magazine.

    What's your favourite pistols in games?

    The first one i thought of was the Duke 3D pistol followed by the pistol from Halo: Combat Evolved. But pretty much anything but the Doom pistol is fine by me lol.
  12. Really neat! I haven't played Quake in quite a while and i've never even heard of the Quakespasm Spiked port before (i just use Quakespasm normally). I might have to try that out.
  13. Heretic/Hexen on console first boys imo. But i agree, Quake/Quake II need console ports (not counting the X360 port of Quake II which has iffy controls imo). Also i think a lot of people here are playing these ports on Switch since it's an extremely popular console. I don't have a Switch (thx Nintendo for not making any available for like a year now) so i play Doom/Doom II on XB1. Ever since the update i do find the analog turning fairly laggy but only with Vsync on. With it off it's great but then there is a shit ton of screen tearing (obviously). I just deal with it but my enjoyment of Doom has been brought down (due to that reason) since the update so i haven't been playing much Doom on console. There is only so much screen tearing i can take before it gives me a headache unfortunately. I'm still excited for all of these new WADs though (and now a TC!) and i love checking them out. Keep 'em comin'!

    What is the best Master Levels map in your opinion

    I recently played these on Xbox One so i remember a few of them. Any of Dr. Sleep's maps (Virgil's Lead ect.) are great. Mephisto's Maosoleum is a good one although it is quite hard for me. I thought "The Express Elevator to Hell" was an interesting one. It took me quite a few tries to figure out what to do at the end to get to "Bad Dream" (it was an accident actually). Another one would be Black Tower. It was hard for me yet fun at the same time.
