  1. Not enough time to read through four pages of posts, but my take on it is that Unreal is well known to players of classic '90s PC games. Unlike the Tournament series, it never received a console port and wasn't as widely available to players in general. For console players, it's only natural to gloss over it, if they even know it exists to begin with. Regarding the comments on UT3, many perceived downgrades from 2K4 aside, the game's performance issues unlikely helped it either. 2K4 and prior were just simply smoother games to play. A shame, because the foundation of UT3 is solid and I still enjoyed it for what it was. The player base was also pretty much dead in that first year it was available. The Titan patch helped with features and polish, but by the time it hit no one really cared. It would get a small boost in players for a weekend when the game would go on sale, but then it would go right back to being difficult to find a worthwhile server to play on that wasn't filled with bots. UT3 probably would have done better on the market at the time if the landscape hadn't shifted so much towards realistic military shooters. We were already starting to see this after 2K4 and the rise of Counter Strike, but Call of Duty was sort of the nail in the coffin for the arena shooter in general. Nothing in the genre has been able to make much of a splash ever since.

    Post your Doom video! [but don't quote video]

    Christmas stream archive with a variety of wads (The Spire, Fruit Salad, Firebox, Sunder and a futile attempt at TOTG).

    Doom 32X fix

    I don't understand why people don't just use OBS to capture footage these days. It's free and does an excellent job.

    It's been a little while. Going to play some WADs for a couple of hours. https://www.twitch.tv/amackert
  5. There's an interview with the devs on the Xbox site, but they are super vague about what the game is. Still have no idea what type of gameplay they will be focusing on. Third person? First person? No clue yet. Overall I am glad they are bringing back this property. I hope they do it justice.

    Just posted another Sunder video, this time going through Map 04.
  8. I don't recall if I got it working in Windows 10. I have it on an older Windows 7 rig. Funny enough, I get sound issues running it in XP. Like half the instruments don't play at all, or something. It does crash once every couple of hours in Windows 7, but I save often so I deal with it. It looks/plays/sounds fine outside of that one issue.
  9. Lithtech. It's a solid game in my opinion (at least the PC version, Dreamcast is another issue all together). Always enjoyed this one, personally. It has some issues, but also some fun concepts and decent enough level design and enemy variety to make it enjoyable. Some of the last stages are BS on the higher difficulties, but other than that I dig it.

    Going live with a full playthrough of 3DO DOOM, with a twist.. I have it run into multiple capture cards, which lets me zoom in the gameplay at its smallest window size, while still having the status bar visible. Fun times. Link: https://www.youtube.com/c/gameplayandtalk/live

    Made a YT channel, and I'll play your mods, guys!

    Yeah, agreed. With commentary it can be a different story.

    Yeah, what the above post said. Also I'll add that personally speaking, I don't find gameplay videos where a player is bumbling around clumsily to be all that entertaining. Anyone can slap together easy gameplay videos like that. Anyway, I don't want to sound overly harsh. Everyone starts somewhere. Best of luck finding a direction for your channel.

    Mouselook or autoaim?

    You should do whatever you want. Personally, I play with traditional auto-aim because that's how I've always played DOOM. It feels most natural to me that way. When I mess around with mouse aiming, I feel like I'm cheating. I only use it in WADs that were designed around it (same with things like jumping).
