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

    Some thread necromancy, but it's on topic at least. Watch partied this last night with some friends who are either loosely invested in Doom (have played original once) or not at all (no experience with doom). Overall, I found it enjoyable if for nothing else than to make fun of it. Whereas the 2005 movie really just felt like it had no redeeming qualities to me, this one at least tried and for the budget overall was... watchable! That said, bring popcorn, take it about as seriously as a bad slasher, and laugh along at the inconsistencies. I almost genuinely wish they do a sequel.

    Coronavirus pandemic chat [no medical advice plz]

    Good news; I'm getting better! Now just gotta avoid Pneumonia! My girlfriend is still a little back and forth but also seems to finally be on the mend. 2/10, would not recommend.

    Coronavirus pandemic chat [no medical advice plz]

    So fun story; I caught it. I've been jammed in bed carefully watching my breathing. Hartford CT hotline is advising me to stay home or go to the ER if it gets any worse. I have asthma and immune system disorders so I'm in that endangered group. My girlfriend who also caught it (we think we both picked it up in Boston at the same time) is also immunocompromised to the point that hospitals on normal days are a scary gamble. So it's really tough right now keeping a positive look.

    The greatest video game of this decade so far

    I'd say DayZ, not because it was good or anything, but it literally defined and created the "Battle Royale" gameplay style that has become an entire genre. Minecraft has had huge impact. As for fun, Undertale, Ori and the Blind Forest, Kerbal Space Program, all fun

    Now that my husband and I have the most expensive Halloween costumes ever, we'll be spending the night handing candy out to the little Pakistani kids at our apartment complex all night. I think we'll do the Evil Dead series as well the night before.
  7. That was really fantastic to watch, thanks for sharing! I love the hell portals at the end

    Why havent you played Doom 2016?

    Lack of hitscanners is really what's doing it for me so far. I can dodge imp fireballs and undead marines for days by just strafing a bit. I think if there was more direct punishment for being in line-of-sight it might be tougher. Glory kills also seem overly effective and kind of break the pace a bit for me. Why would I ever not save the bullet though, especially when shotgun shells are somewhat tight so far.

    Why havent you played Doom 2016?

    Bought it on the steam sale. It's pretty fun so far (only a few levels in). Movement seems a bit weird still, but I'd say it's worth the $20 so far. So far even UV/Nightmare isn't particularly tough...

    Came here to say this. Wick is insane, but human still.

    Principal Skinner vs Nelson Muntz (debate thread)

    Was an interesting first debate. Trump had a lackluster opening 30, and it felt like he was 2v1 for most of the debate as the moderator picked on him very strongly with questions while being very graceful and gentle towards Clinton. He's not good on the defense, and she is the better debater by far. I'd say they both got a few good hits in. It'll be interesting to see the next one.

    Making sense out of the Doom 2 levels

    Hitler's private lair in hell, filled with the damned souls of other fellow SS?

    Why havent you played Doom 2016?

    Honestly I haven't felt the cost justified the game to me so far. The story looked pretty good and the graphics seemed decent enough. I'm not sold on a few of the major aspects of the game still (gibbing-for-items) and the soundscape doesn't really capture the Doom feel as much as I hoped. I've watched a few playthroughs and speedruns and such, and always said I'd grab it and give it a playthrough when it's on a steep sale. Might still, dunno. The fanboying is hard in this thread though. Geez guys, some people have different opinions.

    Dimaension X Doom 2 Covers

    Just found this collection of Doom 2 covers on an old harddrive and I'm once again blown away by how fantastic they are. For those unfamiliar an artist that goes by Dimaension X ran a project of covering every song in Doom 2. I recall him posting a few demos on here that I've since lost. Figured some new members might enjoy a listen, and maybe someone can help me track down the old demo versions https://archive.org/details/the_doom_2_variations I think his "Dave D. Taylor Blues" is my favourite Doom music cover of all time.
