    Emergency medical help needed.

    I am not sure if this is allowed on here, but I am trying it anyway. My apologies if this is not allowed here, I just don't know where to go anymore with this. I need serious help for my mother who suffered a brain aneurysm and we cannot afford the costs for an emergency surgery. She is suffering and has been suffering for some time now. Before this happened, she was diagnosed with a blood disorder earlier this year and we believe that may have led to this. She has no medical insurance or healthcare. She previously did but lost it a few years ago. With no healthcare, my family has went into something of a downward spiral financially as we all have pitched in to pay for the ridiculous insane prices to send her to doctors. These doctor visits have cost hundreds of dollars and prescriptions for much needed meds that are also outrageously priced. Back in May, I started selling off various collectibles I've owned throughout my life and she pawned off all her jewelry over time to pay for these costs. I sold off the majority of my Star Wars collection of figures and memorabilia, as well as all the vinyls I had been collecting from my childhood. We are to a point where we can't bring anymore stuff to any pawn shops or the flea market. Usually I would never post something personal like this online, but it's becoming scarier by each passing day as you watch someone suffer helplessly. I don't want to end up losing my mother. If you can help us, please do. https://www.gofundme.com/rm3h8c-emergency-surgery-for-mom&rcid=r01-153179521281-50f0f93bb7d74ba3&pc=ot_co_campmgmt_w

    Sprites and textures extracted from id mobile games

    These look pretty cool. They look like refurbished versions of the classic sprites.
  3. I think all of us have a number of rocket launcher deaths from being reckless with it. Lost souls running into you while firing a rocket often is an automatic easy death. Revenants have killed me a number of times trying to do dumb things.

    What do you listen to when you're playing Doom?

    Nothing, just the music that's playing. I get tired of the Metal style MIDIs though and often replace them with a WAD that uses the ambient Aubrey Hodges music from the PSX version.

    Something doesn't seem right...

    Youtube's recommendations are pretty bad. Lord help you if you end up accidentally clicking on something conspiracy related or with the word "feminists" in the title and then having your recommendations get overrun with pseudo-intellectual bullshit.

    Your Guilty Doom Pleasure

    Mine is wasting the rocket launcher on hitscanners and imps just to see them explode into gibs.
  7. Net neutrality was just killed in the U.S., so I expect eve more problems to arise.
  8. This is a tough one for me. Where I grew up, we had to travel 1 hour into town to find the nearest commercial fast food joint. The rural town I grew up in was dominated by local mom and pop style diners. Most of those diners are still standing today, with one of them having existed for several decades now despite their expensive menu. The only real commercial fast food place we had was a Hardee's way deep in town. Going for fast food like McDonalds and Burger King in my childhood was something rare and seen as an amazing thing (my family was very poor back in the 90's and the recession from 2008 has made my adult life a difficult one in terms of financial stability). In the early 2000's, Sonic came around and was there for a while. By 2008-2009, we finally saw a McDonalds in town. Sonic quickly went out of business in less than two years. Hardee's could've stuck around since they did get a lot of business in the morning hours when everyone was going to work, but they eventually shut their doors too. Going to have to say Wendy's though. Their fries are my favorite though I can count on my hand how often I've been to a Wendy's, since it's a long drive for me. I wish they'd build one close to where I live cause it's just nothing but McDonalds now with Hardee's and Sonic gone.

    Recommendations for Total Conversions?

    Try Doom 64: Retribution. It uses all the wonders of GZDoom's lighting effects and has tons of bonus content.

    I think John Carmack was wrong in regards to a story in video games.

    You have to consider the era in which Doom was made and video games at the time. Gameplay always comes first above everything, Carmack's words are still correct regarding this. But most games at the time did not have big cut scenes and elaborate storylines, and the ones that did often kept it toned down compared to the standard of today. Video games today are like Hollywood movies and it's the norm to have a big storyline and tons of dialogue and so on. I like how Doom barely has any story because it forces the player to use their imagination to fill in the gaps and come to conclusions on their own. Doom didn't need a big story, since it was just really about you killing demons in outer space. The original Legend of Zelda followed this approach. All the storyline was in the manual and the start screen. You were dropped into the world of Hyrule and just start exploring around. All the dialogue was clues and hints to help you. You had to use your imagination with the places and locations. Maybe it's because I'm older and grew up with these classic games, but I'd prefer seeing games go back to this simplistic approach of not caring about a storyline and focusing all their efforts on gameplay. I could care less about witty dialogue, cut scenes, pretty graphics and a grand storyline that makes me feel special. Just give me something that is fun to play and a challenge I'll feel good about conquering.

    What are you listening to?

    The greatest Post-Punk album ever made. If you don't have Marquee Moon in your collection, you're missing out on a masterpiece.

    Doom 64 Monster Count

    Just a couple levels. The entire monster count for all levels is missing.
  15. Just hoping when Nintendo comes around that we get an announcement for Fire Emblem on the Switch. My dream for Fire Emblem for several years has been a remake of Genealogy of the Holy War. After seeing Gaiden remade into Echoes: Shadows of Valentina, I think it could be done right.
