    Is anybody else seriously disappointed with Eternal?

    Movement in DE is slick, a massive improvement on the already great use of verticality in D16. The gameplay loop took a minute to get used to, and I'll admit that after finishing the game twice, I'm not 110% happy with it, but I still had fun. I wish we could've had proper Deathmatch in the game since Battlemode kinda got old a little too fast. I feel like most of my malcontent with the game comes from the fact I had been playing Classic Doom relentlessly, leading up to release, so maybe I was expecting a bit too much of that. Silly, considering I already knew that nuDoom =/= Classic Doom judging by D16. Overall it's not the amazing masterpiece I was expecting, which was largely my fault, but I still didn't feel cheated out of my money. I wanna do another full replay of the game, but I'm taking a break so I don't burn out for now. I'm thinking of finally getting around to playing Doom 64 during that break, tbh, and maybe going through the Quake games again. Man, the mention of "slipgates" in Eternal got me all hyped up for a Quake tie-in in the new style again.

    Ammo Holy Grail Found?!

    I feel the lower ammo count drove me to use my secondary kill methods (flame belch, chainsaw, specifically) a lot more than I would've otherwise. I was kinda forced into the new gameplay loop, which was awkward at first, but very satisfying once I got used to it.

    Doomguy versus Mega Man

    Chex Warrior defeated the most threatening of villains: corporate attempts at "coolness". The real question is which Heretic class could most easily kill the Chex Warrior.

    I'm a bit confused by the lore tbh

    So, some sort of central, Satan-like figure? Eternal confirms there's specialized devils or whatever in Hell, such as Kalibas, so I wouldn't doubt it. man, I really need to hunker down and read all of the lore pickups of both games

    I'm a bit confused by the lore tbh

    More than that, I wonder how demons were made before argent energy. Hell, it may even explain why they looked so different than new demons - the bastards were just chock full of Argent (or whatever the Hell energy component is called, I forget now). Honestly, I never thought I'd say this about DOOM, but Eternal was way too stingy on lore IMO. Could've done with a bit more... cohesion? I'm just hoping they'll address these holes in DLC. I'd especially like something showing how Doomguy got all his new toys, or even just what happened between 2016 and Eternal. I was kinda disappointed to see that by the end, nothing was revealed about that timeframe, lol.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Finally decided to play Undertale, in preparation for Deltarune. I was originally planning to do a full "true ending" run, but I'm just now at the Core on the first, pacifist run and... I'm loving it but I feel like, by the time I finish the game, I'll be too burned out to go for another, like, two playthroughs right off the bat. When I'm done with that I might go ahead and finally play Dark Souls. Other than that, Taiko no Tatsujin on the Switch. Bought it on a whim after an hour of the demo (I've always been a huge fan of rhythm games) and even without the drumkit, I'm having a lot of fun with the motion controls (yeah, I know, absolutely nuts). Might invest on the drum next month tbh.

    Most recent movie you saw

    Watched the Lego Movie 2 yesterday, and it was just as good as the first one. I was really surprised to see Jon "M.C. Vagina" LaJoie's name in the final credits - but then, TLI were involved in the first one and their work is hardly kid friendly, either. Last one before that was Arrival, and... my brain is still processing that ending, a week after seeing it. What the actual. (fantastic film tho solid 8/10)
