    Is TNT and Plutonia canon?

    I don’t even think Doom is canonical from level to level

    Terrible puns/jokes

    To people who might not get it at first, this is a reference to the fact that ducks do not go into bars due to a mixture of disinterest on the part of the duck and legal issues surrounding animals in food and drink establishments on the part of the bar.

    What is/was a meme you hate/hated?

    - Doggo talk (heckin booper snoot pupper) - Pretty much all cutesy talk like the above unless done as a joke about some stupid reinterpretation where the misspelling is supposed to reflect the terrible likeness - that thing that was popular with clickbait articles and Reddit posts for a while where the author would condescendingly shout at you with a lot of swear words to emphasize how “cool” what they were saying was - dae le gem??!?!! Til!!! You won’t believe what happened next but it was amazing - pretty much anything that reads as very condescending and irritatingly cutesy or very clickbaity and tripey headlining I know I’m stretching the definition of internet meme a bit with some of these.

    Random Image Thread

    I’m not a gun person but over the weekend I was out of state at a wedding somewhere guns are less restricted and went with some people to go trap shooting (orange clay disks flying into the air). I chose the wood and metal Remington pictured here in the middle after the instructor gave us a 30 minute course on shotguns. Thought it reminded me of the original Doom shotgun :D Also I was pretty good for my first time, it felt like distance shooting lost souls. Unfortunately I don’t live in a place conducive to sport shooting due to laws and convenience so it’s probably not a hobby I’ll get to really explore, just like surfing which I also enjoy once every few years before returning home with no local surfing prospects :(
  5. The main issue I have with some of the replacements is that they don’t evoke the necessary imagery. I get if people really want to change this even though I think it’s a bit hysterical, but “primary” and “secondary” for example don’t imply the same thing (that one is a controller of the others). Maybe “boss” and “hapless employee” as a tongue in cheek reference to wage slavery would be a good alternative :D

    What are your favorite and least-favorite flavors of soda?

    I used to like all kinds of soda when I was younger but they all taste too sweet to me now unless they are ice-cube'd (which makes them cold and watered down). The exception is real cane sugar soda which I guess is why everyone swears its better, somehow its not as sickly. However, I really like rum and cokes in the summer so my love of coke has continued on although now coke without being half-cut with rum tastes too sweet a lot, especially with fountains that are flat and mis-calibrated. I moved over to sparkling and seltzer because honestly soda in the amounts I drank when I was younger is just bad for you. I really like Schweppes over all other similar brands (Seagrams/Canada Dry) because at least where I am, it seems to be bottled with a lot more carbonation. I never thought I'd be able to distinguish between blue-label grocery store seltzer brands but here we are. However in an effort to cut down on plastic waste I have switched to fresh direct brand sparkling water in glass bottles which I order by the case. I kind of miss seltzer though (versus sparkling) but it's really gross how much plastic I was throwing out (and drinking out of).

    British or American spelling?

    The weirdest British spelling to me is “maths” and when I first encountered it online over 10 years ago, I just thought the people using that phrase were doing cutesy baby talk as some sort of joke (in-line with asterisks around narrated actions and fake stammering). Sometimes it seemed really out of place to the point of being passive aggressive (like when someone acts really condescending with baby talk). It cleared up a lot of things when I realized for some reason the Brits just pluralize the shortened form or I guess Americans depluralize it to be fair. Still, I cannot read “maths” normally, I still hear it in my head as an American talking to their significant other in a cutesy voice.

    What did you remember from Toys 'Я' Us?

    If toys r us is still profitable then there should be people swooping in to buy them at steep discount regardless of what weird bankruptcy machinations are at work.

    British or American spelling?

    British spelling is the fedora of prose.

    Your favorite track throughout classic doom?

    E1M8 but specifically this remix I found it on John Romero's site probably 10 years ago. It really captures the feel of the game I think, especially the desolation of it which I've always thought of more than the hordes of monsters. The artist above is Rimco since that doesn't appear in the embed, but it's his official Youtube page.

    Post your Gamer Throne®

    That picture scares me. I remember reading a story about the hydraulic systems in office chairs in some crappy off-brand shooting up through the seat like a rocket.

    Post your Gamer Throne®

    Yeah you’re right, there’s gotta be at least like 7 of us

    Post your Gamer Throne®

    @Linguica I have the exact same chair! I've never felt so close to fame in my life. To prove I'm not lying about this mundane reality I attach the following image with a username/date on the back of a home depot receipt. I await the doxxing that will probably somehow come of this seemingly innocuous image

    Liking posts

    Guys, this is ridiculous, trying to unravel or assign meaning to the power ups from Doom used in the context up upvoting messageboard content is a complete waste of energy and time. I mean come on, we should be putting this collective brain power back into figuring out if you actually die at the end of E1M8 (spoiler alert).

    Is Split-Screen Multiplayer Dying?

    It's interesting that now more than ever split screen would be less of a mess also with regards to enjoyment. I can't believe I used to play split screen video games back on 27 inch CRT televisions and think that was a friend with a good television. I don't even know how I made out the characters. Now everyone has 50"+ screens with amazing clarity if they want (practically disposable to buy a good enough large HD television) and you'd have more screen real estate and visibility for your half of the screen then you would have had for a single player game during the split-screen heyday.
