    Your thoughts on Plutonia

    Well, I wonder this, how would we be talking about Plutonia (and TNT) today if it were released as just another PWAD back in the day? Do you guys think everyone would still have the same reverence for it? For a mapset made in such a short time, it does hold up well, if a bit gimmicky now.

    John Carmack on the Joe Rogan show - it happened!

    I have to wonder what all the "objections" they had to deal with and request they had to clear were? No questions about Columbine or some shit like that?

    Have you ever changed as a gamer as years went on?

    I used to play everything that came out that I could get my hands on, and obsess over video game industry news and such, now it's a passing interest, and I play more Minecraft with my brother and old school fps source ports than I do anything else. I harbor a growing frustration with gaming "culture" as a whole, and find it increasingly toxic and immature in many regards. I don't have the time I once had for gaming, and even when I do I have much less motivation to enjoy it. I use gaming to keep in touch with distant friends and do multiplayer games with them just to hang out, it's not a serious competition anymore. I still love racing and flight sims, but hardly find as much time for them as I used to and my racing wheel rarely gets used these days. I guess I'm just getting old. Gameplay wise, I used to horde resources and VERY carefully plan things and take my time, play slowly, now I just go for it, no longer conserve everything for the boss fights, play through games faster and take much more risk. I die more as well haha. The only multiplayer game I've been seriously competitive with in the last 5 years is Rocket League and a couple of online racing sims. I've decided to start playing online Doom now, as I'm slowly returning to the old games and communities, just to have fun and kick some nostalgia around.

    Post Your Doom Picture (Part 2)

    A lot of the DB layouts I see on here look like images rendered in some high powered fractal generator. It's beautiful. The bar for Doom mapping is so incredibly fucking high these days, in all regards.

    Classic Doom level inconsistencies

    un huh Well, I run faster at 45* angles in real life, so this always increased my immersion.

    Is Final Doom Canon???

    Just wondering, how do we know if it's "official"? You're right though, Doom lore is something we make in our own imagination, and not on accident. It certainly would have been a different animal if Tom Hall had managed to included the story elements and cut scenes from the Doom Bible, and why I'm glad Carmack insisted on keeping it light on the story. Tom leaving kind of worked out for all of our benefit anyways. In my mind it always went Ultimate Doom > Doom II > Doom 64.

    [v1.5] Doom 64: Retribution

    You know, this might sound naively optimistic, but I really don't think this will be an issue. If it were a Nintendo property, then yeah (well, it would have happened a long time ago) but I don't see Bethesda and certainly not Night Dive seeing this as a financial threat, and they are certainly more aware as a company of the community backlash and the threat to sales that would entail. The same folks that value the TC's will be a good faction of the folks purchasing this if it happens, regardless of already owning the TC's, and they wouldn't really impede sales of PS4 or Switch official D64 ports.
  8. Hahah, this is of course true, but in the sense that anything that garners this much attention and awareness will be subject to such, and equally true with regards to the adulation it received do to it's ubiquity. Did folks hold SIGIL to a higher standard because it was Romero creating it? Well yeah. Many of the more well known creations from the community over the years had to endure the criticisms (as I'm sure you well know), but without the side effect of financial profits Mr. Romero benefited from with SIGIL's release. Off topic side note, I loved this youtube comment from the SIGIL trailer: "the doom community has been putting out a metric ton of new quality levels every year for the last quarter century & it pisses me off that 1. John Romero thinks he can just get some cash out of a short vanilla campaign and 2. he's absolutely right here's my money" :)

    Doom 1-3 on the Switch?!

    Because it's the difference between 450mb and 25mb on a system that is seriously challenged for space, and @seed, having any game you own put behind an additional DRM wall sucks, big. DRM should be invisible, you bought the game, you own it legally, the game should require no more additional steps to play and sure as hell shouldn't penalize you for not being connected to the internet. Even Bethesda agrees with that.

    Cacowards 2019 Mentionation Thread

    I just want to second the last three points here, I'm pretty sure Eviternity is going to win something and well deserved, just played through it for the second time. The OTEX textures are absolutely gorgeous and have inspired me to go ahead and try my hand at some mapping, and @Jimmy deserves some kind of recognition this year for being the talent he is.
  11. Turns out I was already following you on twitter Jimmy, so you must be a cool dude. I hope you find success in making some kind of living out of the things you already do for free and enjoy, there is no better reward in life than earning an income from doing what you love to do.

    An adventure game fan's first DOOM WAD - "One of Those Days"

    Cool, from what Idspi posted on twitter it looks fun. I'll check it out later this week. Balancing for UV was a safe bet, as most everyone is going to try it on UV the first time.
