    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Quake 1 was an interesting game, good to hear you're enjoying it. When it came out I was torn for a few years between it and Doom 2 being my favorite games. After source ports, Doom 2 was my favorite. But I spent a long time loving Quake. The atmosphere in Quake is palpable. Especially when it first came out, there was really nothing like it before. It felt thick and oppressive throughout, that everything in the world, even the walls wanted you dead. You were invading old dimensions, and they did not want you there. The brown, grey, and blue stone castles and ancient domains told you as much. I think it gets quite a bit of criticism because it feels unfinished. There was the discontent within id about the game's direction, so there were features left out, avenues not explored. But quite frankly, in 1997, when I got the game, I hadn't heard anything about it. And I loved it, and still love it. I love the abstract level design of the fourth episode, it made the game feel fresh and new. That was a bit of a rant there. I love Quake, and I hope you enjoy it half as much as I did 20 years ago. It is a really good game. Suggstion: If you do like Quake, I would suggest having a look at Dusk. I don't get paid by NewBlood, no affiliation, but it's a great game. The movement, enemies, and weapons are very close to Quake. The level design of the first episode is close to Blood, the second episode reeks of Half-Life and Shadow of Chernobyl, the third episode is extremely Quake-Like. It might be worth a look if you need something to play. And I'm sure they need sales.

    Most recent movie you saw

    I watched WALL-E for the first time last night. It's been recommended to me for years, even by people who know I'm not a huge Disney or Pixar fan. I really enjoyed it, definitely my favorite Pixar movie. And I don't really care Pixar or most animated movies all that much. Incredibles was decent enough, Moana was enjoyable. But WALL-E has a special depressing charm to it, and even though it had a "happy ending" I can't imagine all those people that have been living as helpless babies for the last 700 years are ever going to get Earth working again. I guess the people who thought that I'd like it know just how cynical I am. But yeah, I thought it was pretty good, and different from the movies I usually watch. Oh, and it didn't have a bunch of people talking and singing constantly. Even as a kid I never liked all the singing in Disney movies. I liked the movies, not the songs.

    Who says I haven't? I just really like Reign in Blood and South of Heaven. I've also burned Seasons in the Abyss and Divine Interventions. God Hates Us All and Diabolus in Musica. I have all of their albums on vinyl except Show no Mercy and Hell Awaits, got those on CD.

    Reign in Blood and South of Heaven. They both fit on one CD, and I'm pretty sure I'll have it in my car CD player for another month or two,

    Pretty sure that's been posted before. But it is true. I love being able to jump around maps, climb on things, and it's always refreshing when I find a game where I can get somewhere I'm not supposed to be. Falling through the map makes me happy, because I know the developers didn't put invisible walls everywhere.
  7. Right, because if it's from your bank, they already have your account number. It's amazing that people still fall for it. And I'm sure you'll get that second email soon. I feel kind of bad for him, because he's obviously from some Eastern European shithole of a country and the only way he can get money is by trying to scam people. He even said that his "Trojan" he installed on my computer lets him know when I've read his emails. Well, most email services have that ability, it's called "Notify When Read" or "Request a Read Receipt". Don't trust anything you get on the internet from people you don't know, and double check if it's from someone you do know. I figured this was common knowledge from 1998. When I first got the internet, and I realized there's a shitload of assholes out there who are trying to scam you. And I read a rather amusing thread on Fark a few months ago detailing this same scam. Some folks who worked in IT were talking about it, and they said there were two kinds of people who got this email: One was a person saying "What kind of scam is this? Do I need to change any passwords?" The others were people who didn't send an email, because they didn't want to leave a digital trail, they walked over to IT and asked them "What kind of information do they have?"

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    I've been playing Sunset Overdrive recently. I got it relatively cheap during the Steam Christmas sale. And I have to say I really fucking like the game. It almost made me consider buying an Xbox One when it came out four years ago, but I never did. It's a mix between Dead Rising and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, and it works really well. It's certainly not perfect, the story mode goes by too quickly, but the movement and combat flows so damn well. It's been a long time since I've just enjoyed playing a game this much. Grinding on power lines, bouncing off umbrellas, running on vertical walls, jumping 50 feet in the air, spinning around and killing a mutant with a glorified roman candle. I've never actually used the fast travel feature because it's just too damn fun to go through the world.
  9. Sounds like a phishing attempt to me, I wouldn't go opening up random attachments. Most companies will never send you an attachment, and if they do, I wouldn't trust that company. At most, if your account was compromised, google would send you an email asking you to sign in, and send you an email directly to your account. Last month I got an email from some european asshole with my gmail address and an old password. He said he had hacked my camera and I had 36 hours to respond and send him $1200 in bitcoins or he would send a video of me watching porn to everyone in my gmail contacts list. I'm assuming he bought a list of addresses and hacked passwords, but I haven't used that one for a few years. 10 days ago he sent me another threatening email. Jokes on him, my PC doesn't even have a webcam.

    Recommendations for E1 WADs to play

    I would recommend Doom the Way id Did. It replaces episode 2 and 3 as well, but it was made to be relatively faithful to the original mapping styles and expanding upon them. Which reminds me, I never actually played the final release. But the first episode was pretty damn good if I remember correctly. Guess I'll have to play it again.

    Whats your favorite animes

    I never really watched anime until I went back to school and met a guy who loved them. My only experience with anime before that was Dragon Ball Z, and it is shit. I'm sure that will piss some people off, but that was my first experience with anime. "Oh, so they've been fighting for the last five episodes and nothing has happened?" "Yeah". So after getting anime recommended to me again, I watched a few series, and I did start to appreciate some anime. Not all of them, but I did end up really liking Attack on Titan, Soul Eater, Death Note, and One Punch Man. Edit: Forgot about Full Metal Alchemist. I enjoyed that series as well.

    Blood vs Shadow Warrior

    Blood has better gameplay. The weapons are funner to use, the enemies are funner to kill. The level design is pretty damn good for the most part, but does start to suffer in episode 4. It also has a larger enemy variety, Shadow Warrior basically just has a bunch of ninjas. Shadow Warrior is good, does some neat things with the Build engine, and the level design is definitely good. Probably better than Duke. But I never really liked the weapons, the fact that they fucked the shotgun up so badly is a travesty. And the enemies are just insanely powerful, I have a hard time getting through the game. Possibly because the weapons suck, the UZI has quite a bit of spread so, so you struggle to hit enemies, the shotgun is the same. The only really accurate weapon I can recall is the railgun, and that's a top tier weapon so you don't find that much ammunition for it. If you have to pick one, I'd go with Blood. But I might be biased, it's my favorite Build engine game.

    DUSK pink screen problem

    How is your EEE-PC that you got in a box of cereal going to run the MAC version? I stand by my suggestion, if you have a legitimate copy of Dusk, give your system specs to the devs on Steam and see if they have any suggestions. They have a customer support forum specifically for this.

    Most recent movie you saw

    I re-watched Kung-Fu Hustle last night. I love that movie, and I'm not sure why. It seems like the little movie that could; it keeps trying and failing, but in the end it gets it right. And the scene with the assassins with the guqin was beautifully haunting.
