    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    I recently picked up Barotrauma by a friend's recommendation and it's one of the most fun multiplayer games I've played in a long time. It's hard to really do it justice through descriptions alone but it's a sci-fi submarine survival sim and inevitably everything goes horribly wrong, I'm in love with it. Giant alien-looking sea creatures try and break into the ship while the entire crew tries to hold it all together, whoever plays security is predisposed to go AWOL and take the ship prisoner, casual mutiny and trying to keep order as the captain. You really do need a good group together to experience it to its fullest but I've gotten lucky enough to have an amazing one. Hitman and Hitman 2 as well. Been really hooked on that too, used to love Blood Money and it's a wonderful extension of that.

    What "Lost Media" are you interested in?

    Lost media is a topic I find deeply fascinating. I'm the kind of person who wants to know everything about anything so it really stokes the fire inside my Sherlock heart. There aren't any in particular that I'm interested in above any others but I did witness some lost media growing up and I didn't even realize it at the time. To set the scene, it was the early 2000's. I was very young, around 4 or 5 at most. Mindlessly sitting in front of the TV, nobody else in the room, Spongebob Squarepants in front of the wide-eyed little me. Same episode I watched dozens of times before. I don't know how many of you grew up with the show too but for the sake of reference, it was the episode about the hooks. It got to the scene where one of the characters rattles off some motto about never going near the hooks which again, I've seen so many times until this point. One thing changed though; all the characters became puppets for apparently no reason and the scene continued as normal, just with all three characters present being replaced by live action puppets. It lasted for the entirety of the hooks sequence and returned back to normal like nothing ever happened. I remember being understandably so confused by this and none of my friends or siblings ever believed me when I told them about what I saw. Fast forward to maybe three or four years ago, 15+ years after the whole ordeal happened and I still couldn't find ANYTHING about it online. I hadn't talked about it for years at that point because it sounded like a cheap Creepypasta, which it absolutely does. I legitimately started to believe maybe I just dreamt it up or I was so young that it became a case of somehow embedding a false memory into my psyche, I don't know. But lo and behold, after so many years and countless uncomfortable puppet-centric nightmares later, someone dragged up a screenshot of the scene and finally proved it wasn't just my imagination. The entire thing was some mid-show promotion for a new cartoon at the time. You can now find the full puppet sequence up on Youtube if you search around for it but this has always been such a funny story to me and I believe it was the inception for my interest in lost media as a whole.

    Goodbye Adobe Flash...

    I grew up with a really tight-knit community for a flash game making site so this hits especially hard. The memories I made during my 11 years there and the people I've gotten to know are beyond precious to me.

    2021 Goals & Intentions

    I've been lurking around here for ages and admittedly I haven't done too much, so I plan on getting more involved with mapping. Several ill-fated attempts were had over the last couple years but my godawful perfectionist mindset ceases work on any of it the instant I am even mildly unsatisfied, then I start something new after somehow reasoning that it can't be salvaged and the cycle continues. I'm putting a stop to that and I'll actually have something to show sometime soon. Mapping and the creative side of Doom has always been my absolute favorite part of the series, it'll be fun to finally participate. Another mildly Doom-related project I've been telling myself I'll start this year is properly streaming over Twitch or something, I don't really know. A lot of people have been encouraging me to do it so I'm at least going to give it a shot. Here's hoping I own up to all this and don't leave it in the dust like I normally do. Posting this here now means I have to do it. It's been etched into the annals of Doomworld, it's now sacred text.

    What do you think of the "boomer" meme?

    I think the boomer meme is adorable, albeit really played out. When I think "boomer" I think vaguely political Facebook dad who just wants to grill, unbothered and untainted by the deviancy of the internet. I realize I'm alone here but that perception has stopped the meme from ever getting old. Although seeing people use the boomer meme disparagingly is just weird, I always thought it was wholesome.

    Doomworld is full of old cranky curmudgeons.

    I wholeheartedly agree. I don't visit here very often at all, but I always thought there was something really special about this place. Everyone has always been overwhelming kind to me when I do show up and the community is dotted with so many talented folks. It's so cozy.

    What is your honest opinion on the Doom comic?

    I have such a soft spot for hammy dialogue with what seems like zero self-awareness so naturally I love it to pieces.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    I know I'm years behind, but recently I finished RDR2 and on impulse I picked up GTA V while it was on sale. Never touched a GTA game in my life before now and it's really been something else. I love how vast the world feels and the dialogue is so absurdly obscene sometimes that it warrants a giggle. So many colorful characters. SWAT 4 is amazing. If you haven't looked into mods for it yet, I highly recommend you check out SSF Realism. It improves the already impressive AI even more with a bunch of other really neat tweaks.

    Favorite non Doom FPS

    STALKER, specifically the mod Call of Chernobyl. I urge anyone with even a passing interest in post-apocalyptic settings and sandbox shooters to pick it up, It goes on sale frequently over on Steam. I've gotten a lot of enjoyment out of it.
