  1. Out of everything I've played and that includes stuff like Dota, TF2, etc nothing comes close to Minecraft. Something about that game seems to bring out the worst in people. A distant second is Eve-Online for similar reasons. I've had some great experiences with both games but they always seem to end in hot rage, bitter tears and smoking ruins.
  2. Interesting. I figured the Wikia site came along later.
  3. Wow that fake doom wiki just straight up rips off the info from the real one. https://doomwiki.org/wiki/Plasma_gun The only difference in the links is http for the wikia link and https for the real wiki. So shady.
  4. Vin Diesel is probably a pretty good bet. He's about the right age, grew up playing D&D, and loves FPS.
  5. Pinkies are for chainsawing, especially in tight spaces.
  6. I too love the pistol! That BLAM BLAM BLAM sound signifies the beginning of good times. I'll pull it out to use on lost souls, plink that last bit of health off of Cacos, Pinkies and what not. It's a good gun!
  7. Stuff like crates become cliché because they work. If crates weren't awesome they'd be a one and done. What else allows you to build an environment with lego-like flexibility? Well I guess lego does. Let go of the hate, embrace the crate. They are a-mazing.
  8. It's approachable yet deep and rewards experimentation. It's a perfect marriage of pulp theme and kinetic gameplay. But most of all I love the community that supports this game and keeps it alive. Just for the love of playing, refining and expanding the game. Doom is an incredible expression of generosity of spirit while being metal as fuck. How cool is that?
  9. Now that I think about it Heretic is like Barry Windsor-Smith and Hexen is more John Buscema. Makes sense to me anyway.
  10. Oh shit, my last table top D&D session was like... over ten years ago? Something like 2003 or maybe '02 and we were all old farts so we played 2nd Edition (THAC0 FOR LIFE). Loved the character too, did a lot of heavy collaboration with the DM on it. He was a Chaotic Neutral Dwarf Fighter/Thief. He was a compulsive liar and kleptomaniac. He'd never admit he was a thief, especially to other party members. If someone found something super shiny, or mechanical, or just plain expensive enough he'd attempt to steal it from them on a coin toss. He'd generally keep the stuff, either hiding it someplace safe or just tucking it away in his gear if it was small. Also any time I had something important to say I had to embellish on it. Pretty soon the party was wary of "Dwarf Stories" and that made for a lot of hilariously fun and dangerous situations. It was lots of fun juggling this guys foibles and after I had to leave the sessions because of work demands he remained an important NPC in the campaign. Basically, after I left the sessions, he was found out for the thieving liar that he was and ousted from the party. He then became an important contact, fence and general quest giver. Occasionally I'd run into someone from that gaming group and they'd fill me in on the latest hijinx.
  11. Well you won't find anything really close to Heretic. Heretic was made in the same spirit as Doom; It was heavily inspired by table top gaming and the stuff you found in underground 80s pop culture like comics, grindhouse movies, heavy metal music, punk music and pulp novels. Just like you won't find many movies that are actually like Doom, you can find elements of Doom in tons of stuff from the 80s and early 90s. Same goes with Heretic (and Hexen), you can feel the same sort of gnarly energy going into these things. You won't find a film specifically like Hexen but you will find elements of Hexen all over the pop culture landscape from the time these games were made.
  12. Yeah Beastmaster is good fun. I like Sword and the Sorcerer a lot too. Edit: I just notice that poster is for Deathstalker which is definitely not Beastmaster but still a lot of good fun, especially if you like a lot of nudity. The Deathstalker movies also have a lot of humor to go with all of the fantasy hacking and slashing and T and A. Totally a lot of fun if you are down for that sort of 80s silliness. But Beastmaster is good too, everyone needs to see Beastmaster.
  13. Pick any 80s grindhouse fantasy flick.
  14. They get my money. I thought the first one was super.
  15. I've had a lot of fun with Blue Revolver lately
