    Is Doom's logo from the 80's?

    Doom have always been a very underground band, Romero's tastes were much more mainstream. I'm pretty sure the game's logo is mostly inspired by the old Metallica logo. Maybe the band's is too.

    Sunder - Map20 Appears, finally.

    Wanted to replay MAP16 and encountered a strange bug: a switch supposed to lower the obstacle raises it even higher instead. PrBoom Version (OSX), Sunder 2407. The switch works as it should in GZDoom. Weird, since I'm sure I've beaten the map before in the same PrBoom version.
  3. Hooray, it's happening! And the screenshots look very intriguing, 3 and 9 especially.

    Chaingun nitpick

    It's not an ammo belt, it's a golden chain. There's a lot of money in killing Doomguys.
  5. They have always been connected: https://heretic.fandom.com/wiki/Serpent_Riders
  6. Damn, Doom and K2 together? That's more death than megadeath!
  7. It takes time and practice (and then a bit of luck anyway) but yes, it's possible. Not taking damage is kinda the point.

    Doom Podcast - An Evening with Nirvana

    Haven't listened to it yet, but I already want a John Romero commentary track to go with it.

    Buying music nowadays

    I buy and collect CDs (mostly old pressings from 80's-90's). Sometimes buy stuff on Bandcamp. Most of my iPhone is filled with mp3s. Streaming services pay miserable pennies to artists, and tend to use loud remasters, so I'd rather rip an original CD and put in my Vox. I got a few LPs, but they are kinda costly, so I only buy selected things. I grew up with vinyl, I like it, it sounds great when an album has been specifically mastered for vinyl, but for the most part I prefer CDs.
  10. "It is payday!" (c'mon, you know the game)
  11. Had a blast playing this. Welcome back, man!
  12. Not gonna lie, this hits on a personal level, so I tried E1M5 just to give it a try and it was scary as fuck, especially the exit. Incredible work. Will definitely give it a full playthrough one of these days.

    Sunder - Map20 Appears, finally.

    The weirdest looking map so far, and most intriguing. Kinda hard to imagine it with monsters and ammo. Can't wait to play it =)

    Oldest game you've actually enjoyed.

    Gotta be Alley Cat (1984). Back in 1993, on my first ever PC, which I only had for a year.

    Last Concert You Were At??

    Paul Romero & orchestra playing HoMM2-3 music a few years go. It was fantastic.

    My 4-year old daughter likes to come and watch, but we're not killing demons, we're "destroying robots". And I tend to turn away after firing rockets. These days we're playing Might and Magic 6 before sleep, she likes to press the attack button, especially when fighting goblins. A green goblin is one of her favourite toys. She is not familiar with the concepts of death and religion yet.

    DW Facial Hair Census 2022

    Had a goatie since 20, sometimes I get annoyed with and shave it off, but my face looks too stupid roundish without it.

    What country are you from?

    Russia (well, used to be until recently).

    Most confusing map ever?

    The Tomb of Varn? Sorry, wrong forum.
  21. Hell Beneath and Perfect Hatred are disliked? They're about the only levels in DOOM1 I really love, 5/5. Barrels O' Fun are nothing but fun. The Chasm is king. Nirvana is a meh rush job, but not *that* horrible.
  22. You start a map and there is a berserk in front of you. You pick it up with an evil grin, open the nearest door and smash the surprised zombieman behind it to tasty meaty gibs before it even can say "HUH?" That's me. Or maybe I'm the Mancubian candidate - old, fat, trapped alone on a bloody rock, and hoping that the doomguy won't kill me until the very last minute.
  23. Definitely Shotgun. I still have nightmares from shotgunning barons in Doom 1. I mostly use it for Imps, prefer chaingun for general sniping, and the rest gets plenty of use (I gravitate towards harder wads where BFG is common).

    WADs with no secrets?

    Yes, Sunder won't waste your time with stupid secrets. No more wall-humping. Except the passage to MAP31, but it's a very simple one.
