    Oops! All Techbase - Project Thread

    @ZeMystic, I'm going to have to relinquish my claim on MAP29. I've made no progress on the map and at this point I don't think I will. Hopefully someone else has time to make an awesome map for this!

    Have you ever gotten malware?

    Naw, this wasn't early 2000s, more like mid 2010s. If this was the early 2000s I'd have been between the ages of 2-7 years old. I still remember the days when my dad used Netscape as a web browser, but I was too young to be allowed on the internet at the time...

    Have you ever gotten malware?

    I once got some malware on my previous laptop after downloading a copy of Strife. This was before Nightdive had the rights, and the only way I could play it was by illegally downloading it or finding a rare physical copy. Anyways, I visited some websites that I instantly regretted clicking on. Shortly afterwards all the advertisements in my browser became excessively sexual in nature. "It's like having a pussy magnet on your cock!" (complete with a questionable cartoon depiction). No popups, just the ads you'd see on the sides of webpages. I downloaded an adblocker and the issue disappeared entirely. The laptop fried for unrelated reasons afterwards and I got a different one.

    unpopular retro opinions

    Of all the Legend of Zelda games I've played, a Link to the Past is the worst one. It's the game that solidified the Zelda formula, yes, but it's Link's Awakening that perfected it. I love the Legend of Zelda series, it's probably my second favourite game franchise after Doom, but holy shit that game has aged poorly.

    This looks interesting! I think I'll reserve MAP29.

    The steak thread

    I personally prefer my steak cooked at medium. Not medium-well or medium-rare. Just, medium. Most of the steak I've had in my life was cooked by my mom, and it beats the shit out of any steak that you'd order in a restaurant. I haven't been able to have much steak for the past several months but now that summer is starting and university is ending for a while I'll be home again for a few months to enjoy it again. I'm from a farm that raises beef cattle so there is a very, very slim chance that you may have had beef from our farm if your steak is Alberta Beef!

    Cacowards 2019 Mentionation Thread

    I just finished it last night and was on my way to mentionate it myself. I loved it form beginning to end. Considering the scope and ambition of this project, as well as some of the honourable mentions in the credits, I'm surprised that no one else has talked about it here already as far as I've seen.

    Obviously very true Doom facts thread

    At one point during the development of Doom, John Carmack got so fed up with Tom Hall's insistence that the game be about killing demons instead of befriending them that he locked Tom Hall in his office by wedging a battle axe between the door and the frame.

    Random Image Thread

    I saw this fake movie poster years ago, and every once in a while something reminds me of it and I can't stop myself from laughing out loud in public and embarrassing myself:

    How many maps have you created and released?

    Haven't released much yet, but here we go: 2017: Heretic Upstart Mapping Project (HUMP) ~ E1M1: Sidhatraz 2018: Heretic Upstart Mapping Project Mini (HUMPmini) ~ E2M5: Cave of Damnation 2018: HeXen Upstart Mapping Project (XUMP) ~ MAP01: Pit or Sorrows 2019: Nova III ~ MAP2?: Platform Base Nova III isn't out yet, though early versions of Platform Base were available on the Nova III development thread at one point last year (I've since removed the links). Ironically, while I've made probably close to one hundred unreleased Doom maps, most of the maps I've released so far are for Heretic (Sidhatraz is actually the first map I ever made for Heretic, yet it's my first public release). I keep track of my releases in my profile description, so any future releases will be included there.

    What were your first Doom impressions?

    Wow, there's a lot of parallels between our stories SirJuicyLemon. My dad introduced me and my older brother to Doom probably before I could read, and I've been in love with it ever since. That Doom '95 bootup screen sure brings back the memories... I still remember watching my dad play the first few maps of Final Doom before I could even comprehend how to use a keyboard (I vividly remember seeing Well of Souls for the first time). The time frames in which we were first introduced to the game are fairly in sync, I was probably around five years old when I finally started trying (and failing miserably) to play Doom on one of my dad's old computers. Similarly to InsanityBringer, I don't really remember what my first impressions of the game actually were, but I'd safely assume that my three-year-old mind was blown the first time I saw my dad boot it up...

    Ion Fury, a new Build Engine game out now.

    They've nerfed the bowling bombs. They were overpowered in the earlier versions, but I think they went a little too far with how much less powerful they are now. It's a great map, I'm greatly anticipating future updates. Shelly's new lines are a major improvement over the ones she already had. They're so much more playful and aggressive. (Though I wish they'd remove the 'Mr. Roboto' line, I hate that song so much...)

    Who here is a video game collector?

    I'm slowly meandering into collecting games. Last year I bought a Super Nintendo and have since acquired three games for it (Super Metroid, A Link to the Past, Starfox), haven't had much time to play them though. So far I've only beaten Super Metroid. I have a sizable PS2 collection (haven't counted, but almost all of them are from my childhood). Plenty of PS3 and some PS4 games. I'm interested in getting an original Xbox. I recently got a handful of Gameboy games from one of my cousins. Got a Wii a while back, but I need to clean it since it had to endure a flood not that long ago. But sadly, I am but a humble university student and can't afford to expend substantial funds on such trivialities.

    Going out to do some errands today

    It's not quite that cold here in Southern Alberta, but it's still pretty damn cold. I think I heard that the temperature is going to get to -35c tonight. I personally prefer chillier weather, but this is a little too much for a university student that needs to constantly move back and forth between separate buildings throughout the day. It kind of pisses me off that who ever is in charge of the heating can never get the temperature right, you need three thick layers outside but as soon as you're indoors you better strip quick or you'll pass out from heat stroke... I don't really think I can complain that much though, I expect the Chinook winds will be passing through shortly to clear up this coldness...
