    Romero And Carmack Live Stream

    Carmack is entirely uninteresting to me in 2023. He hasn't done anything worthwhile since 1999.
  3. The CD32 is basically an Amiga 1200. It's not even on the level of the 32X and Jaguar, and both of those ports got aborted. Also it never actually hit the US -- just Europe and Canada as far as I know.

    Is DOOM 64 the best looking N64 game?

    Some contenders: Star Wars Rogue Squadron Star Wars: Battle for Naboo Perfect Dark Paper Mario Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards Conker's Bad Fur Day 1080 Snowboarding F-Zero X (basic textures but super fast gameplay and consistent 60fps) The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Sin and Punishment I do love how Doom 64 looks and feels, though.
  5. The 3DO was the only console in the US that could actually run it in 1994. The PS1 and Saturn were out in Japan in late 1994, but they didn't hit the US until 1995. There was going to be a Jaguar CD port but it was canceled due to the failure of the platform. And the game was beyond the capabilities of the SEGA CD, Turbografx CD, CD-i, or CD32.

    What is your favorite book?

    Dune. It's the defining work in the science fiction genre in any medium.
  7. None of the Turok games were ever good. I felt that way in the 90s playing them on my Nintendo 64 and I feel that way now playing the modern ports.

    Doom 3 in 2023

    It wasn't good when it came out either. It had impressive visuals and sound design but the gunplay is and always has been horrible, the story is horrible and unskippable, they try to make it a horror game but supplies are too plentiful and the difficulty is too low, they rely entirely too much on jumpscares, etc. If it didn't have "Doom" in the title I'm convinced it would be forgotten as it deserves to be.

    What Was Your Last Purchase?

    65" LG 4K OLED TV Dolby Vision capable Sony 4K Blu Ray player Yamaha receiver Klipsch reference 5.1 home theater speakers Can't wait to watch some 4K Blu Rays on this setup. I already had a 4K player and a 4K LED TV, but this new setup should be a massive upgrade. Going to watch these on 4K Blu: Lord of the Rings Extended Edition trilogy Dune (the good Denis Villeneuve version, not the hot garbage David Lynch version) Blade Runner 2049 Arrival Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse The Batman Dredd The Fifth Element Atomic Blonde Those are some of the best-rated 4K discs as far as picture quality goes. Should be enough to put the new equipment to good use. Just waiting for it all to arrive.

    How do you launch your favorite source port?

    I use GZDoom on Linux. I have the .wad and .pk3 file types set to automatically open GZDoom when I double click on them, so I just click whatever I feel like playing. Then the GZDoom menu asks what IWAD I want to use with whatever I clicked on, I select the right one, and it launches.

    What are some WADs you don't think get enough respect/recognition?

    The Golden Souls .WADs are all incredibly well crafted.

    Do you destroy all the explosive barrels or leave them?

    I save the ammo unless I can use them to damage enemies or trigger something else (such as the secret map in Doom 64).
