    Most recent movie you saw

    Okay, some more movies I watched: Scream 4 is better than the third film, and it enjoyable to a degree, but it's worse than the first two. I think the villains are a bit better than those in Scream 2 (mostly because they have more screen time) and the joke about the "Stab" series is amusing, but there are too many characters who are dumb redherrings, and distracts me from the plot. Oh well. The new cast members work well. Some non-Scream films now: Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb - great title, and great political satire! Very funny, with a load of oddball performances (mostly from Sellers, Scott, Sellers again, Pilkens, Hayden, and... well, Sellers, I suppose?). Kubrick really was legendary in every genre he went into. Misery (1990) - pretty good suspense thriller. James Caan and Kathy Bates have great chemistry (and give great performances).

    What is the most epic thing you've ever done?

    Most epic thing? Passing my baccalauréat without needing to redo it, I guess?

    Best/Worst maps in The Plutonia Experiment

    Best: So many to count that I'll go straight to the Worst. Worst: Maps 03, 04 and 25 would rank as my least favourites, and they're not even too bad. 03 has a couple of traps that are more annoying than engaging (the AV with just a hallway for "cover", for example), 04 is a tad boring (but not frustratingly so) and 25 is the only map that can be considered not that good. The beginning is bullshit, and while the map improves after that, it's certainly not my fav. But yeah. Plutonia is just... so good.

    "A Chilean blog called UAC Labs". Now that is unfortunate.

    Most recent movie you saw

    Watched the first three entries of the Scream franchise. I'll watch the fourth one a bit later. Scream (1996) is awesome. A good idea to make a satire about horror clichés, interesting and unique characters, a good villain (or, villains) and alternately scary and funny. The acting - especially by Campbell, Cox, Urich, Lillard and Barrymore (oh, and also the voice by Roger Jackson) - is great. I love it! Scream 2 is a satire on horror sequel clichés. It's alright, I guess, but it has some dumb moments (not killing or unmasking the killer when he's unconscious) and also some unnecessary or annoying scenes (the cafeteria song scene is cringeworthy). It's still funny, but not as scary, nor are the baddies as memorable. Scream 3 is the embarrassing third installment. The kills are either boring (a LOT of stab-kills) or have convoluted set-ups (one involving a gas explosion). The new characters aren't as engaging and the killer isn't too good, either. The film is simply too corny.

    Best/Worst maps in TNT

    I hate TNT. There you go, Garrett.

    Best/Worst maps in TNT

    Best: 03, 09 and 28. All have a lot in common: good resource-placement, good enemy placement, great design, interesting layouts and great gameplay. Worst: pretty much everything else. They're either boring in terms of design (almost the entirety of the third act, consisting of an overabundance of caverns, or tunnels of some kind), boring in terms of gameplay (06, 07, 08, 12, 21, 22 and 25 are good examples), are annoying (waiting for enemies to slowly teleport in, like in 11 and 19), are ugly as sin (a lot of the second half), are broken to the point where you can finish them in mere seconds, with almost no opposition (a sign of bad mapmaking, present in 04 and 22) and... well, a ton of other reasons like crap gameplay and continuity. The only other maps I'd exclude from the "Worst" category that aren't in the "Best" are levels like 10, 17, 31 and 32. And maaaaaaybe 18.

    Resurgence demos [-complevel 9]

    I think that means all of Resurgence has finally been maxed!

    Disjunction demos [-complevel 9]

    Getting pissed off is a general reaction from me when I speedrun (which is sort of why I've not attempted one in ages...).

    Going Down demos [-complevel 9]

    I wonder if anyone can beat V1perK1ller's quote-on-quote "unofficial" runs of these maps (since he used mods and whatnot). I'm just gonna say, more than likely, I won't be the one doing so, as it would only make me pretty mad. :P

    Going Down demos [-complevel 9]

    I imagine Map22 will be a bitch to do. I've tried to play it casually, and it's simply impossible.

    Maps You Used To Hate But Now Love

    In terms of official WADs, I used to dislike E2M2, but I've grown to like its non-linear design. Also, I used to hate Map24 (The Chasm) of Doom II, but I love its design and, honestly, the ledge-walking isn't hard at all. I don't know why people have issues with it, even with the enemies that attack you. For fanmade WADs, off the top of my head, I remember using to dislike Map05 of Tangerine Nightmare, but after V1perK1ller's speedrun of it, I tried to strategy and, except for the AV/Cyberdemon section right at the end, it's a pretty good level. Same goes for Map28 of Ancient Aliens - after watching the speedrun, it actually became a lot easier.

    Popular/highly rated WAD's you're not a fan of?

    For me, it'd be Speed of Doom. Hear me out, I enjoy challenge as much as the next person, but most of Joshy's maps are just more frustrating than genuinely difficult (whether you have to punch out 5 AVs, like in Map21, or just cross your fingers if you want to live [Maps 23, 27, 32 come to mind]). Luckily, most of Darkwave's maps are pretty good, but they aren't enough to make the whole package worthy of loads of praise (for me, at least).
