    How much of a DOOM purist are you?

    Probably a 2 or something. Given BD was how I got interested in playing Doom, I never really had any interest in playing Doom the "true" way. I mean, playing it vanilla is fun for a novelty every now and again, but I've been spoiled by tons of mods that it's hard to play it that way, so I usually play new maps with something like Beautiful Doom or Final Doomer just to add a bit of visual niceness without altering the game too much.
  2. Ah, I missed that part. Well I'm a bit less helpful in the laptop game.
  3. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ZKXBwh I've put together a build list that I think will adequately suit the needs you're looking for, all for just over $1,000. Ryzen 5 3600 - Fantastic mid-range CPU, six cores, good performance for both gaming and productivity. MSI B450 Tomohawk - Good budget motherboard with plenty of ports. Corsair Vengeance 16gb - Inexpensive dual-stick of 16gb's of RAM at DDR4-3200. IMO the bare minimum for good gaming and productivity performance. Samsung 1tb SSD - 1tb drive for your OS, SSD for super fast performance. Seagate 2tb HDD - 2tb drive for storage of whatever you might need, like your videos. GeForce GTX 1660ti - Great mid-range dedicated GPU for gaming and video editing. Should run any modern game at good settings. Fractal Design Meshify C - Nice looking case with lots of space. Cooler Master 650W PSU - 650W to give your system plenty of juice. Also fully modular so no need to worry about excessive cables.

    AMD returns to the top end in GPU race

    Some of us just are glad that both Intel and Nvidia have actual competition for our wallet. Both have for far too long held pretty much a monopoly on their respective tech fields, and Intel is really suffering for it compared to AMD while Nvidia now has a competitor offering similar cards for cheaper prices. It's a good thing for both the industry and for us consumers.

    What Is Your Opinion On TLOU2?

    Harassment is not okay, not ever, never will be. I don't care how much you dislike a person, you're not the better person if you go out of your way to make their life hell, and in fact that makes you objectively worse. And I'm not talking just making shitty comments. I do not care how much you don't like people like Druckmann, or Anita Sarkeesian, or anyone else in a similar position of public scrutiny. These are human fucking beings like you and me, and making threats on their life or the people around them because you don't like the work they do is one of the most low-class and awful things you could do, and it just makes you a shitty person. It's like SWAT'ing the person that killed you in a game; you put a person's life in danger because you got mad and thought it would be "funny". There is no excuse for it, and there never will be, and it's why I don't like to call myself a "gamer" anymore or associate with the gaming community, because it's become a toxic hellpit, as evidenced by what's happened with TLOU2.

    Doomworld is full of old cranky curmudgeons.

    I'm talking about when DW users talking modern games, not mods.

    Doomworld is full of old cranky curmudgeons.

    I've taken issue in the past with some of the users on the ZDoom forums, particularly some of the mods/admins, and I just think it's less welcoming overall for some reason. I don't hate the place, I'd just rather be here most of the time.
  8. But I love it anyway. <3 No but for real, just felt like saying that I think Doomworld is one of the better online forums I've been a part of, even if a sizable chunk of its base can be contrarian "they don't make 'em like they used to" knuckleheads. :P I'm mostly joking. I appreciate you guys more than other places like the ZDoom forums and the Doom subreddit especially. You guys make this place fun to be around.

    What Is Your Opinion On TLOU2?

    @TheMagicMushroomMan It sounds like Naughty Dog games are just not your thing, because... Jesus, you really have not liked a single thing they've done? That's honestly impressive. Anyway, I think both are good games, but that's not what I want to talk about. The thing that pisses me off is the absolutely fucking awful breakdown of discussion that has happened with this game on the internet. I've never seen a game inspire such virile hatred and vile toxicity that I've seen it spark with this one. It's gone far beyond just discussing the game itself, but the full-blown bigotry on display by many people, because the game dared to acknowledge LGBT+ people. Then there's the absolute harassment that the development team has gotten online, which I don't care just how much you dislike a game, if you harass a dev team and do things like send the director of the game fucking death threats, than you're just a bad fucking person. It's an absolute fucking shame, because what's lost is discussing the absolute technical masterwork that TLOU2 is, the time and work put into it. People put years of their life into this game, and that should be recognized first and foremost. /rant over

    Sgt_Mark is making his own game, "Brutal Fate".

    So you based your entire opinion of the game off of a short teaser of a game that's still in its alpha state, where you aren't able to play it yet. Okay. Seems pretty unfair, but okay. Also, does Hedon not count as a game given that it was made in the GZDoom engine? What makes GZDoom any less viable to use than something like Unity? Total Chaos also runs on the GZDoom engine, and yet you seem to have glowing praise for it as a mod and seem like you would be happy for it to be a standalone game.

    It could be people seeing things and thinking it's from something else, because yeah I don't see the similarity.

    I guess you guys could just try asking him yourself here or on his twitter.

    And keep in mind, guys, it's still in it's alpha state. A lot will likely change/be added down the line.

    Nvidia's RTX 3090 is a "Big F**king GPU"

    I was more talking about something like the 3090, which is apparently $1400.
