  1. EDIT: It seems like there’s a game breaking bug in the Lost At Sea chapter. It turns out that there is a bit of a workaround (in the Fergus timeline): There’s a vent that you have to reach, and you’ll need the constrictor harness to do so, as you’re supposed to shoot some boxes, but because you haven’t spoken to Paris Jack (since he doesn’t appear), you’ll be unable to shoot said boxes. Once you go through this vent, you’ll find Fergus’s arm, and there the main characters in Club Kreisau should reappear.
  2. So after getting the new body, I went and chose the Ram Shackles. Only thing is, I’ve found the Constrictor Harness, but completing the side mission doesn’t unlock its upgrade. I’ve run into a bug, haven’t I?
  3. I'm at the part where you first reach New Orleans, and I actually think this is a much better and much more polished product than The New Order. That being said, it's not without its flaws. While Grace may pale in comparison to Caroline, who was more of a straight-up leader, I can't help but feel that the former is more of a deconstruction of the "fearless resistance leader" archetype. While still heavily driven to fight the Nazis, it does show time and time again that she's a very flawed human being, but of course nobody's perfect. In fact, she actually seems to be something of a hypocrite, something especially shown with her treatment of Sigrun Engel. However, that actually makes me appreciate Grace's character just a bit more, as it shows that even the "righteous" can have chinks in their supposedly impenetrable moral armor. And for all the idiots crying "left-wing pandering," the game shows quite nicely that the Resistance aren't exactly the paragons of humanity either. Case in point, everyone is still calling Sigrun a Nazi and treating her like one, even when she's demonstrated herself to be just as worthy to the cause. Another example is that when BJ first meets Grace and Super Spesh, both of them are quick to assume that he's a Nazi because of his "noticeably Aryan features". As for Horton (whom everyone is calling a "dirty commie"), it's not like this goes unnoticed, either. Hell, BJ actually calls him out on this because the former's propaganda was indeed a factor in the Allies losing WWII in this timeline, and to BJ, marks Horton as something of a coward. While most people seem to dislike Super Spesh, I actually enjoyed his character. I felt that he brought an appropriate amount of levity to otherwise bleak situations. That being said, I do think that the decision to give BJ such a fucked-up childhood was a bit heavy-handed. I know that times were radically different back then, and I know that people like Rip Blazkowicz really did exist (hell, they still do), but to have BJ's dad be this much of a hate sink was rather excessive. But if there's one character that I do hate, it's Frau Engel (although this was most likely intentional). I really don't get the "fun" side of her personality, and every thing she does do, makes me want her to die in the most horrific manner possible. And that's ignoring the fact that she has absolutely no sense of personal space. As for gameplay, they made about a dozen steps forward, but about a couple of steps backwards. Of course, the gunplay is as robust as ever, but this new dual-wielding system feels rather cumbersome and unwieldy to use. There were a couple of instances where I've only dual wielded two different guns, but more often than not, a pair of assault rifles/shotguns should do. And contrary to most popular opinion, I actually feel like instead of forced stealth sections that people complained about with TNO, I actually felt that TNC went too far in the other direction, by forcing you to go in guns blazing thanks to what could be hypersensitive AI. This wouldn't be such a problem on lower difficulties, but on "I Am Death Incarnate," good luck playing whack-a-mole with every rank-and-file Nazi you come across, because you're gonna be save-scumming your way through. This isn't helped by the fact that most enemies seem to have super-vision, and can hit you with pixel-perfect laser accuracy. Fortunately, when you get the new cyborg body, the game does seem to get slightly easier. Good lord, Doom 2016's Ultra-Nightmare wasn't this ludicrous. Speaking in both themes and gameplay, I've always felt that TNO always seemed to be holding back. Clearly not the case in TNC, where you apparently get to finally see Hitler. And for some reason, I've always felt that TNO felt a little rough around the edges, but I'm thinking it has more to do with the engine. Speaking of which, id Tech 6 is clearly doing wonders here, even if there are a few textural glitches every now and then. So overall, despite a few hiccups here and there, the story feels better-paced, the new side-missions add quite a lot of replay value, and I'm enjoying it so far, even if I keep dying over and over.
  4. I just failed a midterm today. 

  5. So I’m planning on upgrading Shin Doomguy further by adding severed Imp spikes to the armor (like on the shoulders, elbows, knees, and even the boots). 

     

    Yea or nay?

  6. And EA has just won another Golden Poo award from the Consumerist.
  7. Bump, but here is part 2 of Animate Florida. https://imgur.com/a/uCyj8
  8. So I discovered the hard way that the only way your Doomguy cosplay will ever get noticed or positive comments is if it’s an exact replica of the Praetor suit.
    Welp, time to go cry in the shower lol

  9. I am obviously not worthy of such badassery.
  10. https://imgur.com/a/buoLI So it's been a while since the last update, huh? Here are some pics from Animate Florida, which happened to be on the weekend of my birthday.
  11. So how would this look as a "modern classic" variant of a DG cosplay? It already seems to be a more streamlined and modernized version of the classic Doomguy armor (and yes, that POLICE sign is sold separately) image.jpg

      Good enough.

      Unfortunately, I just found out that the riot armor is only available for government officers (military, law enforcement, etc.)

       

      A private citizen such as myself can’t purchase this. 

  12. To my understanding, I've only known about him in passing, and I was aware of the impact he had on the Doom community. What I didn't know about is the humility he showed with other players, his infectious personality, and the immense amount of skill he would display. This is currently beyond my mapping skillset, but I would like to seriously propose a DemonSphere memorial DM map, in the style of Judas23_.wad, the map he vowed to never lose on after QuakeCon 2013. This way, we can not only grieve the loss we've suffered, but we can also celebrate his life, his legacy, and his skill. Rest in peace, DemonSphere.
  13. Welp, it seems like we've gone back to basics. And now I'm sad, because I can no longer showcase my leet cosplay skillz.
  14. In light of the recent tragedy in Las Vegas, I will not be bringing my pistol prop with me to Animate Florida, out of respect for those injured/killed in the shooting. 

    Same for the super shotgun prop that I've been waiting on.

      Probably a good idea regardless of the shooting. 

  15. And now my depression is back. 

     

    Welp, it was fun while it lasted.

      if you need to talk about it feel free.

      That doesnt help everyone, some people it can cause more problems than it solves. Also, based on where he is, weed could be a serious legal issue. The best thing is to identify why you're depressed, and handle it at it's source. I know a lot about depression, and if anyone needs help, or someone to talk to about it, feel free to contact me on here.
