    Another DOOM movie being made?

    *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

    The big fat thread of what phone do or did you have!

    I started off as a kid with a Sony Ericsson something something. It was a cool phone, I didn't spend my ass on it the whole day, and it served well until it retired from the service, as I got a Galaxy Mini (cannot remember which one), a tiny but cute smartphone which I was promptly hooked on. Like, real bad addiction. I used to joke that I stored my soul into the phone so in case I die the next person who would pick it up would be haunted and forced to carry two souls in a body. It did well, but I mistreated it horribly. It now lies in one of the drawers, tossed aside like a plague-ravaged corpse, decaying. The first phone finds itself in the hands of one of the villagers who soaked her phone in the rain, it was the same model, and I didn't mind parting from it, so I gave it to the old lady, free of charge. Then, I obtained a Chinese knock-off that I won't ever name (just mentioning it gives it more honor than it deserves), which, at first, was great, but: -It had it's batteries replaced three times in a span of a year and a half because they kept overheating. -It would kill itself over at least once a day, if not for the battery, then from something else. -The front camera died off and the face camera was about to die as well. I cast down the phone into the bowels of hell from which it came from, and got myself a Huawei P10 Lite which I now use, and to be honest, it's the best thing ever. My days of addiction were long gone, but it still finds use even with me, a casual user at most.

    Which DOOM did you play first?

    Woob, time to get bashed to death: Doom 3, because I was looking for something to do over the weekend, and I needed a game that wasn't a time sink nor a game that just goes on forever. I played Doom 3, liked it, and went to see what's all the fuss about. The thing is, since I am more of an "Half-Life" type of guy, I wasn't amazed by Doom 1 or Doom 2. That doesn't mean I didn't finish them, but I never really truly fell in love with it, only got a bit of a crush with the map editor. Latest of the Doom games I played was Doom 2016, and whilst I do not know why people think it sucks, I found it to be great, even if it was a demo for the Playstation 4 (a console family I never touched until that point, last year), finished it on Ultra Violence, and loved it just as every other game in the franchise. If anything, I guess I am one of those *sigh* Doomers who find every game of the franchise to be absolutely great, even the N64 one (which I didn't finish but I kinda liked the mood).

    [GZDoom] Doom: But It's Completely Fucking Unplayable

    Nah, it isn't completely unplayable. It's just cheesed up so much on the fake difficulty it looks like so. I know its a meme mod and that it's purposely made like so, but here are few tips I gathered by playing and experimenting on this (for those brave heroes who want to make playthroughs on this, obviously, knowing this community, someone is already making a UV 100% max run with this concept or whatever): 1. Giving a small tilt to either left or right will turn you left or right, but only after a small delay during which the screen moves in the opposite direction but returns to your preferred position. Same works for up and down. 2. Crouching and or jumping can stabilize you if for a bit, requires a bit of timing and practice. The mod will move you up and down, but will move you up (jump you up a bit) once it reaches the "upside-down" version you can see up there. 3. Taking time to retreat and re-arrange your field of view is nothing to be ashamed of, with a situation like this at hand, unless you can psychically connect with GZDoom to preform what you need, you might want to take a few steps back and re-arrange your screen. Just screwed around with it, played MAP01 of Doom 2 and finished it (didn't record it though, and I didn't make a 100% run or anything). If anything, it felt like riding a tank with damaged optics. I didn't felt nauseated though, if anything, I did feel like I was playing a action shooting game and that the game bugged out and I was infinitely dodging to the right :D Fun, casual, might screw around with it more later. I'm sure it's playable.

    Worst Ending in a videogame?

    Hotline Miami 2. Oh, the story is going great, a lot of things can be done with the setting and the franchise and the gameplay, I simply wonder how it would all wrap up--- Devs literally dropped a nuke and killed everyone. THE END. I mean, there was a lot of foreshadowing done in the game with regards to this ending, but it still chipped off the fanbase, because it was literally the cheapest ending anyone could ever pull. At least the fans continued making campaigns with the stuff devs gave. I didn't get to play any of them yet but I guess a lot of stories and gameplay mechanics are being explored as we speak :)

    Enough about good shotguns, let's talk about the worst!

    Hm. I would be hard-pressed to find a shotgun I didn't like. I can freely say the shotgun from Quake 1 was just... inadequate, I dunno. I literally love every other one, even the Doom 3 one. This thread's question has me sweating.

    What is like to live in your country or city?

    Split, Croatia. Won't talk about politics either because I am kinda allergic to them, so I will just coast over to the aesthetics. It's kinda tightly packed, but at the same time not really. I live somewhere in the center of it, at the 3:4 of a distance between two primary schools. And as you guessed it, it's a pretty lively squadron of neighborhoods. Tourists and tourist guides can yabber on about the beauty of it, but that is mostly the coastline and the old part of the city. Newer parts (like 80% of it) is like your average East European city (ctrl+v apartment blocks for instance), but with a pretty big dash of Western architecture and culture sprinkled over it (mostly Italian). The neighborhood I live in is littered with kids and old people. In fact, just about every age demographic can be seen. Most of it are old people though. The neighborhood I have to walk through to get to my college is the same. And, as far as I can gather, the neighborhood with the university as well. Especially now, these days, there are a lot of people on the streets, even kids, for whom they get regularly accused by internet headlines and articles to be "inside the house" all the time (which they aren't). I myself can get everything I need, and my favorite and only mode of transportation is on foot. Not only because it's economical and healthy, but because of the vast amount of cars and little bit less parking spaces (the area at the university is the worst with this, sometimes I think there are more cars than students, even if it is a bit illogical). I have to take a half an hour commute every morning and afternoon, but it's not like I mind. I just put on my headphones and rack up that steps count, do my healthy quota, whilst observing the daily life. The local news and media made it so that what I am supposed to see are criminals, skeletons and beggars whilst traversing, but I do not. Heh. That might count for the peripheral area around the city. For me, I am set in nicely. That being said, I do miss the countryside a lot. I always wanted to live off the land and the sun, but that is considered disgraceful apparently, so I have to go to college to be an IT guy for some company in the future, yay :D The place from where I truly originated is astoundingly beautiful to behold, not to mention, calm and simple. I feel like myself the most whenever I get here on the weekends, and whenever I feel troubled whilst living in the big city, my mind often wanders to the "homeland".

    Share a random fact about yourself

    My right shoulder snap, crackles and pop time to time. No worries, it's a painless type of pop; compare it to knuckle-cracking (which has been proved to be harmless, even in the long run). Either way, this means that there is a chance you will hear a slight "crack" coming from somewhere and then see me with a stupid grin on my stupid face because the cracking of the shoulder is satisfying to me in a weird way. It's painless, my shoulder gets some action, and mostly it feels like a popping a bubble wrap. Stupid but satisfying :D

    Female Protagonist in the new Doom movie?

    Either way, all the hot air for only an unbiased rumor and an assumption, that's... just... dumb. I mean, okay, Doomworld kinda handled this better, but when I commented on this post on Facebook yesterday, I swear, each and every commenter on that post whipped out their copy of the Modern Dictionary Of Internet Politics 2018 Edition, closed their eyes, opened up random pages, and randomly selected words and typed them into a comment, choosing to stop when they got distracted by something else, and posting it before going away. I had seen two three reasonable souls who knew what the articles said (that there was only a female lead character, not a Doomgal), but that was it, everything else, well, you had already seen it here, folks.

    Female Protagonist in the new Doom movie?

    I love it how 95% of people I met on the internet follow this logic. "Female actor => Confirmed as lead character === OMG ITS GOING TO BE A PC DOOMGAL WTF!?!?!?!?" Chill, no one said anything about a Doomgal, I checked the news, a lead character can be anyone, a regular space marine, a researcher, a civ, who knows? It's a movie! And I mean it, no one said anything about the lead character being Doomguy or Doomgal. It could be a researcher who got a good idea to wake up Doomslayer though, who would still be a war-machine that surpasses humanity and limits of rage... whilst having a female actor be a lead character, whilst having a good movie at the same time. Either way, yall should chill, we don't even have a trailer yet!

    Another DOOM movie being made?

    That is what I had been saying whole day. I mean, Doom 2016 is a reverse horror movie, basically, because you play as the "monster" who is performing a genocide on the demons themselves. So, a good movie about this would be all about waking up Doomslayer. I mean, nothing guarantees it would be a Doom 2016 based movie, but it makes most sense (much like the first Doom movie was kinda based off Doom 3), unlike the "OMG THEY WILL MAKE DOOMSLAYER A GIRL ABORT ABORT". Also, there can be multiple storylines to follow in the movie: A) UAC shenanigans, Olivia Pierce wants to be a God, and Hayden is getting more and more amoral about shit, and the staff is kinda freaking out. Doomslayer gets found, and transfered over to the base. B) Demons freak out bc they just recouperated from Doomslayer's latest spree and they go invade the base to stop him from waking up. C) The two above stories collide, and the UAC staff is either trying to fight back, hide, or evacuate, and the fem protagonist has a good idea what to do and goes through a whole trial with a group of people and they cannot fight for shit, and the group gets picked one by one. There are some Space Marines who are fightning back, but what makes for a small arena in Doom 2016, that is a massive battle for survival to them. D) Doomslayer wakes up, mayhem and genocide ensues, but at what cost? A lot of ppl are dead, and the only thing the survivors can do is to try and evacuate the planet. This should be the new movie, ladies and gentlemen.

    Just who will be the protagonist in this case? If they got more than two marbles in their can they will obviously keep the Doomslayer male (or Doomslayer will be "more than human" and won't have a gender because "sex = useless"), and have another protagonist be the female, probably a scientist or an assistant of sort who is going to have to wake up Doomslayer, who will, in turn, rip 'n' tear the demons surgically, whilst every other human character is probably going to be playing hide and seek and one guy might take down an Imp and people will see him as a badass for that. That's how I see it, and that makes the most sense. After all, who is going to bring in/wake up Doomguy/Doomslayer? What is he doing here, on Mars (most likely)? A lot more questions pop up by just thinking, and a good movie would answer such questions whilst giving us some good old r'n't. I know Doom 2016 gave us a good coverage on such, but still, there is a way the movie would remain true to the source material whilst being fun and while having a female protagonist.

    Another DOOM movie being made?

    I wanna know who the fuck reads the article and immediately thinks a woman would play as the Doomslayer? Not saying that anyone is stupid or whatever, but in-so-far, lead characters can be anyone, and more of them can be even. Maybe Amy would play as Olivia Pierce, or she would probably be trying to revive Doomslayer whilst running for her life from all the monsters? I mean, I haven't even come across a single article that specifically states Amy will play as The Doom Slayer/Doomgal (if you insist), and I am asking to be proven wrong on this. Just chuck me a paragraph or a line which states "Amy = Doomgal" (with the source of course). That would be all.

    Share a random fact about yourself

    I myself wanted to have a medium-long type of hairstyle, ya know, like, reaches your cheek and a bit more. Turns out, when I don't cut my hair in a while, it becomes super curly, and while I did manage to have my front bang reach my eyebrow, just saying... if my hair was more straight, it could have reached that stage a long ago and I wouldn't have to deal with a mixer between an afro and a... well, best described as the haircut of Ancient Romans whenever they posed to have their statues made... at the same time. It was a bother, but deep down inside me, I wish I could have kept the atrocity that was on my head that time. Who knows, if I took good care of it, I would have looked like a rock-star, instead of a gopnik I am now :D

    Another DOOM movie being made?

    I am genuinely looking forward to it. The only thing that is going to make my viewing experience shit is the "echoing-back-into-the-present-from-the-future" echoes of the Doomers and gamers complaining about some trivial stuff and/or blowing it up as even worse than the first movie. It's probably going to be fine, as long as they don't deliberately fuck it up. (that being said I might as well start following the news regarding this)
