    The Doom universe? Anyone else interested?

    It'd be pretty sweet if they'd have the game react to people that want lore. Characters that respond when the Doomslayer actually stops and listens to the lore they spew out instead of just walking past them.

    Balance between Graphics and Gameplay

    A more useful discussion (in my opinion) is choosing graphics or simulation. There are only so many people a company can hire, so there is going to be a choice what the programmers do... make systems and AI or set up a good graphics pipeline that gets the fanciest pixels for the least amount of GPU work.

    Balance between Graphics and Gameplay

    What the fuck am I reading? Of all the primitive 3D games, Quake 1 is easily one of the most aesthetically pleasing games from that era. Especially when you run it at high resolutions in software rendering on (relatively) modern hardware.

    Bethesda.net issues

    Well, they'll try to convince you it's completely legal despite things being illegal under EU law. After all, computer distributors in the EU put those "warranty void if seal is broken" stickers all over their products despite the fact that you can just open up computers in the EU and still send them back within the warranty if something breaks. Companies are forced to accept warranties regardless whether the seal is broken.

    SIGIL - New Romero megawad for Feb 2019

    So I'm a bit disappointed it's not Blackroom related, but how can you say no to a Romero made .WAD? Excited as fuck. The level design looks insane.

    SIGIL - New Romero megawad for Feb 2019

    It better be Blackroom related. At first I was really skeptical of Blackroom (with a story about a VR game gone WestWorld), but Romero's E1 remakes really make me open up to how surreal you can make just about every map in a complete cyberspace based game. Nevermind that Blackroom sounds a bit like Daikatana: Remastered in concept and I always thought that game deserved a spiritual successor.

    Share a random fact about yourself

    I can watch the grossest gorefest horror film (I must admit, I gotta brace myself for the throat excavation scene in Zombi 2 when the worm zombie rises from his grave), but god forbid someone talks about that papercut they got.

    Diablo Immortal

    There's a difference between making money, and trying to get a monopoly on the concept of money...

    Diablo Immortal

    Lemme tell you what the hell is wrong with the people in charge. They sold their soul to the devil (shareholders), and the devil always wants MORE money than the last game you sold. That's how you get fucking idiotic shit like Game 1 selling 10 million units, the shareholders expecting Game 2 to sell 40 million units, and then Game 2 sells 20 million units to critical acclaim, and it gets called a commercial failure for missing the expected target and the studio gets liquidated and all the employees fired.

    Because people need to eat and capitalism ruins videogames.

    This is what dark Seraphime entities are...imo

    Could also mean the Doom lore takes on a gnostic/luciferian tone, where God is evil, angels are demons, and the demons are angels. Which actually makes the Heretic/Hexen vibe even stronger, what with you taking the role of a "heretic" fighting against the world order created by "the gods".

    Who is your favorite character from any 90's FPS game?

    Does 2000 still count as the '90s? If not, what a shame.

    Who is your favorite character from any 90's FPS game?

    Freeman and Doomguy. Can't say much about BJ because I've only played the shareware version of W3D. Caleb, Duke and Lo aren't really characters. They're caricatures.
  14. This is fucking dumb lads. FO76 isn't even a game. It's a techdemo for multiplayer modes in upcoming Bethesda games. You think Bethesda gives a shit about the Battle Royale fanboys? Of course they don't care, just like they don't care about FO76. They're testing out new components for Gamebryo on fucking idiots, that's what FO76 is.

    Making the mastermind a better monster

    Still think the trick lies within the concept of "magic" or "psychic powers" to really distinguish the Mastermind from the brutish Cyberdemon. The Mastermind came up with the invasion of Earth, it really should be more of an insidious boss than the "imma shüt u n u shüt me" Cyberdemon. Maybe have it shoot Lost Souls at near-hitscan speed hahahahaha.
