    Do You have a original World?

    Well, I have, one "universe" (a la our good ole Terra Firma for one setting and this fuck-distant planet for another). Made it up in 4th year of High School, from a short story I was supposed to present on a radio show, then I just shoved all of my old stories into the same "universe", therefore it's kinda big. Details? For Earth-clone: energy bending, power armor from WW1 and onwards, and Tyranid knockoffs. Tyranid bootlegs are in the background 98% of the time, and most of the stories revolve around people living their lives. For that fuck-distant planet: medium fantasy, medium magic setting, which has elves with (steampunk-ish-but-not-really) prosthetics, tribal men with "three arms", goat-cow people (not furry material, not in the slightest, more like nightmare fuel), then typical early medieval stuff. Also, steampunk-ish-but-not-really guns (crossbreed between WW1 stuff and 19th-century firearms, coupled with magi-tek on some super super rare occasions). Supposed to be a setting for a DnD campaign or something.

    Share a random fact about yourself

    I myself have a tiny case of bad luck. I'm the type of guy who will get the most bones/pepper bits/chunks of whatever in his meal, I'm the type of guy to get a 49% on an exam, and I'm the type of guy to get accused of doing nothing but gaming whenever I did some actual hard work and decided to relax a little, but then someone barges into my station. I trip occasionally, but never fall down. It never goes worse from here, I never had anything lost or burnt or whatever, it's just these tiny cases that can be enough to try and ruin my momentary mood. My script says I have to complain that nothing goes my way, but nah. I try and learn from my mischiefs, and I take failing at first try to be nothing but a bad start, and I try again and again until I get it right, like, using the power of cognitive dissonance I regularly accuse my bad luck instead of my skills, prompting me to try it again :D I still cannot find a way to combat the "49% on an exam" situation though :(

    Your pet peeves for what people do in doom

    I also love to roleplay while playing "silent" wads (those without a bit of story in them). In fact, I do it all the time. I never play Doom to crack my fingers about on the mouse or keyboard, it kinda needs a bit of a story, and I kinda need to act along with the story (imagine reloading when there is none, taking cover, shaking the mouse while running, etc.) :D

    Your pet peeves for what people do in doom

    A lot of things were said, and the most relatable for me is the "picking up the soulsphere first" and variants of the trope. What also bothers me a lot is custom sounds for things. Say, you got a comedic sound effect or a joke thats gonna be played everytime a thing appears on screen and does something. Cool. Just make sure it's a cool enough effect that won't get stale after the first 10 times, kay?

    My speaking tic is letting off a super tiny chuckle after every sentence that isn't 100% serious. I dunno why I do it, probably to signalize people that I am feeling chill atm. And whenever I am sarcastic, I dial up my native dialect by 200% to drive the point that I am making fun of something.

    [Poll] Freelook users - do you also use autoaim?

    Since a lotta of FPS games I play are newer and by default have freelook always and autoaim never (imagine playing COD2 without freelook but with autoaim for extra giggles), I use the same options with Doom. It gets weird with Software mode on for Zdoom, but in general, always freelook, autoaim never.

    a new doom.wad? thoughts on sandbox and community

    I bet the main idea behind this wasn't really to throw away Doom 1 or Doom 2, but to kinda create a new platform for dooming I guess: a new alternative standard that would have it's own gameplay mechanics, stats, whatever, for people to make stuff on; kinda like for people who had grown tired of the "ye olde" style and seek a change, one that isn't 100% their effort (say, see others make maps for this specific new type of "Doom" and stuff). Behind that idea, I can get. Sure, it would pose a great imbalance to the "older" maps, who were tailored around Doom 2's gameplay, but, the new "Doom" would work well on it's own. But this new platform would be akin to a new FPS game, and that is, I guess, the problem here (plus all the licenses and stuff). I guess this idea is something above a regular "gameplay mod", I bet, something like for people who map for Hexen or Heretic. No matter how many similarities you try to draw together, Doom and Heretic would never be the same. And the similar situation would be with Doom 2 and "the new Doom". Thing is, I won't need to get into this since everyone else said it, but it ain't simple, and it would need to be open-source, free and whatever - but I guess, if a new "Doom" would come out of community effort, I think I would certainly like it, and probably other people as well. But it seems like it will take a plenty more time (decades at least) for the modern day Doom community to collectively get tired of Doom 2 :D

    Hard maps with low enemy counts?

    Why do I have a feeling most of these "hard low monster count maps" are just archviles in open fields?

    I'm legit tired of all the cynicism and pessimism on the internet, like, where are you going to find a legit reviewer of things (music, movies, games etc) that isn't like: "Oogoo, I expected this to be total shit, but I was absolutely dumbfuckingly astounded by how shit it was. Granted, shit like this is always shit. Oogoo, shit". Like, ffs, if I could find some dude who doesn't rely on cynicism or satire to review popular stuff from at least an objective standpoint, if not, in the fair optimistic spirit of pioneering, am I right or am I right, my lads? Like, not just reviewers but everyone is expecting the worst these days and they still keep finding faults even when everything is right, and claim that something is "beyond saving" when all it takes is a bit of hard work to get something right (again, be it a game or song, whatev). Makes me wanna start my own blog/channel of optimistic reviews of stuff.

    DOOM: Annihilation - the new Doom movie

    *pokes his head out of the bunker* Umm, hi, is the gender battle over, is it safe to come out? - Other than that, I am liking what I am seeing. At first I expected a Doom 2016 movie, but I am fine with this as well, kinda like a mixer between old and new, I guess it's going to be great in the end. I do still hope for the "wake up Doomslayer" plot to be a thing, and in-so-far nothing has been mentioned that would negate such a possibility. So what, a crew of generic Space Marines? Greater stories started with even weaker people before, nothing to get agitated about. If anything, I did feel agitated about the whole "Ooof if they make Doomgal then they Ess-gee-double v trash oof world is shit ooooof" because that is just a lot of hot air over nothing, lol. Now I am calm and I might check in this thread once in a while. Thanks guys, keep posting those twitter updates (I would myself but I cannot afford the luxury of time) :D
