    Things about Doom you just found out

    Most likely a reference to NIN's "Broken" E.P.

    What would be your ideal doom movie?

    At this point I'm waiting for someone to make a movie using the Doom 2016 characters and monsters and moving though locations that recall OG Doom, kinda like those Red vs Blue Halo movies. Okay, I just found out they're called 'machinima'. Yay for research.

    Doom II - 25 Years Later: An LGR Retrospective

    "Just two metal barrels held together with a piece of wood and explosives in the middle, it undersells itself on aesthetics, and completely overdelivers on power." "The revenant: a tall, lumbering skeleton beast with shoulder-mounted rocket launchers and blood for pants"

    Any peculiar Doom habits?

    Always gosta unf. I too enjoy that. Revenants as well. Oh yeah. LMAO yes this I used to be terrible doing this when I was young, playing nearly any type of game and I was into it (yes, I was that asshole who would swing my hands holding the controller left and right while playing racing games). I still kinda do these things to this day. There's also the one where after a big plasma-spam slaughter and you end up with like four cells left, you just expend them into a wall for no reason. I like it when I save the game when I'm on less than 10% health, because I think I'm a badass, and not realize that there's a chaingunner right behind me. I sometimes fire a rocket point-blank at the exit switch as I press it. I do the 'jiggle dance' while waiting or riding on a slow-moving platform. These days, I immediately type IDBEHOLDL when I encounter a room with fuckin strobe lighting. I always check destination teleporters to make sure that they take me back to original one (or if it takes me somewhere else). Ever do the thing where you screw up in a fight and then just stand there and say "ok kill me, hurry up, kill me" instead of reloading a save?

    Superb level.

    Reimagining Maps. (Contest idea...?)

    I'll be the one to put a button in that room of The Spirit World, instead of that shootable wall. Friggin' hated that.

    Things about Doom you just found out

    Realized this a few months ago, but it bears repeating.... because it is so damn obvious.... All the startup demos in Doom were played with keyboard + mouse. There was a topic here that Doom was ALWAYS meant to be played with keyboard and mouse (as opposed to keyboard only), and the guy pointed the demos out as proof of this. When I read that, I immediately realized, I didn't even need to look them up, I have them burned in my memory, and holy shit I never consciously acknowledged that. BTW, I still play keyboard-only, because I always have. Keyboard + mouse feels more like a Quake thing to me

    Which monsters you have faced as ghosts?

    Only ever happened to me one time in all my years of playing, in a big arena with multiple cyberdemons and spider masterminds. It was glorious - dodging rockets in the void and so forth. I saved it, but reloading the game didn't preserve this phenomenon- the cybers were now stuck out in the void :-)

    Yeeeaaaahhh man that would be awesome
  14. When you're charging around a big-ass slaughtermap taking out loads of the heavy monsters by the skin of your teeth.... and then get killed by a trooper.

    Doom Annihilation was lame. What a disappointing movie. :/

    If I were to make a Doom movie, I'd make the Arch-vile the creature that can turn humans into 'zombies'. Like it can hypnotize you into turning on your fellow soldiers, you could come up with some cool situations with that. And I'd make it look all freaky with long fingers and huge teeth and it can like hang from the ceiling and stuff. The monster that does the spider mastermind's dirty work and can control all the other monsters. Shit, I could make an awesome Doom movie. Somebody give me 150 million dollars

    Is it Doomguy, Doom Marine or Doom Slayer?

    Someone here recently called him 'Guy Doomington'. I like that.

    You know what would be awful?

    I always thought rocket launcher zombies and plasma gun zombies would've been an awesome addition to Doom and a great expansion to its' techbase side. Like the plasma zombies just shoot single shots, like at the same rate as the trooper/shotgunner, but of course if there's a group of them it would turn into chaos - and then rocket launcher zombies.... just imagine the carnage. And I always thought the arch-vile should've had a melee attack.

    I Want To Finish This Map Very Badly

    I heard you can kill him by splash damage if you shoot rockets at the structure he's in at a certain angle.

    Is it Doomguy, Doom Marine or Doom Slayer?

    What about Quakeguy? What the hell was his name?

    What is 'The Void'?

    And you ever try noclipping out to kill it? And then it charges you, flies through you, then you turn around and run after it in the void? Now THAT'S some trippy shit.

    What's the best gun in Doom II?

    I always though it would be cool if the Icon Of Sin, and any of the fleshwall textures, would produce squirts of blood when you shot at them (instead of a bullet puff). Would've really driven home the implication that you're in some sort of organic structure

    Which monsters you have faced as ghosts?

    I remember first encountering ghosts in Monster Condo (I think like a specter and a shotgunner). Had no idea how it happened, thought it had something to do with the fact that I was noclipping around the map myself on God mode (I never legit played through Doom II until way later). I remember yelling out at my brother "HOLY SHIT CHECK THIS OUT THE BADGUYS ARE NOCLIPPING QUICK COME LOOK" or something to that effect. Easily the most unnerving thing in Doom, as even the ancient tactic of "hide behind the wall and you'll be safe" is now unreliable, and if you don't have a rocket launcher, you're basically screwed for the level. It's amazing how this particular quirk wasn't noticed by the creators.
