  1. Bear in mind that this hasn't actually killed it off, it's sent it back to the negotiating table for changes. (due Sept 10-13th) And there's a disturbing amount of finger-pointing going on from the elites...blaming Russian botnets and fake news etc. for the wave of activism that won the day. It's now a standard excuse for anything they don't like (Trump, Brexit etc.), and sadly most folks are falling for it nowadays. IIRC that was shot down with a huge majority (something like 4:1 or 5:1), this was only just defeated by a whisker.
  2. Because it's the one distribution channel (news, info, entertainment etc.) they currently don't control.

    Expansion Packs: Your best, okay, and worst

    Malice is pretty good, though not without flaws. I remember the controls being a bit screwy (IIRC turning speed was the opposite of what it should be with run mode on/off), which led to a weird but oddly fun movement style (this was the original CD version though, and I don't think I was using the mouse back then). No armour/powerups but you get some cool gadgets instead (notably a hoverboard), gameplay is fast and no melee weapons but secrets are a real pain (many aren't classed as such) and some maps are a little confusing. It has a neat cyberpunk/dark future/dystopian atmosphere though, with a soundtrack to match (probably the best pre-synthwave method of doing one IMO) Worth checking out though, especially if you like that kind of setting.

    Cacowards 2018 Mentionation Thread (don't toot your own horn ffs)

    Quirky Domain - mindbending at times. (edit: fixed link, damn this new forum software)

    Expansion Packs: Your best, okay, and worst

    There was also a distinct absence of ambient sounds, that greatly enhanced the original and the other mission pack.

    Have a look at this improved version for UT: (lots more maps for a start) https://unrealarchives.com/return-to-na-pali-ultimate-edition/

    Worst Ending in a videogame?

    XS - you win the tournament, escape with the prize, then get shot in the head. HL* - you've just been on a very long journey and "oh you're a corporate-controlled slave". Opposing Force even worse (locked up forever) and HL2 because it never got finished. (only Blue Shift had a reasonable ending, and even that was simply a side story) Hotline Miami 2 - NUKEM (get them before they get you) That's pretty much every Speccy game that ever existed. (that is, when it's not sending you back to the start and maybe flipping the screen or making all the enemies hardmode etc.)

    First/Second/Third gen Doomer?

    Playing in 1995, mapping in 1999...first gen all the way I guess.
  9. In other words, it will end up feeling like a sequel to the reboot rather than the original. *presses the nuke button...get them before they get you* 30 years would be more than enough time to build Delta City...then it'd have to be all bright and shiny instead of dark and sinister.

    Favorite RPG/JRPG?

    Haven't played a huge amount, but probably Legend (PC) for western and Tales of Phantasia (SNES) for Japanese. (the former had some really tough puzzles and an awesome spell creation system, the latter had story/characters/music that all combined together, along with that weird active combat system)

    Brutal Doom wins mod of the year on Mod DB

    Throw in the Hell on Earth Starter Pack and I would've agreed...on it's own, nope. (also seems daft that it's not only stuff from 2017)

    What was your first anime?

    Dragon Ball (I thought I'd start with the lowest common denominator), followed by Ghibli films (based on recommendations) and Black Lagoon. (because I remember a Revy skin being used in Skulltag :P).

    Doomworld & The End of Net Neutrality

    Over here we used to have traffic shaping at peak times (ie. DL speeds would be slowed down if you went over a daily usage cap) to prevent heavy users from hogging too much bandwidth...but that was dropped years ago, presumably due to upgrading infrastructure. (and this was well before streaming was a big thing)

    what would you like to see more of from the doom community?

    More Heretic stuff: they come out occasionally, but not enough. And somebody, finish HPack. More Hexen stuff: still incredibly rare. A community project would be nice, the hub format can be workable if regulated properly. More Strife stuff: the one thing we still haven't had yet is a full Strife megawad (CIF3's psuedo-TC comes the closest) - community project maybe? (see above point on hubs) More (G)ZDoom stuff: this year has been surprisingly good, and there's still plenty more that can be done - particularly in the no-frills category. (analogues of various projects like 1994-tune-up, CC*, Slaughterfest etc. would be cool for example)

    Duke Nukem 3D is depressing

    There's also the Christmas one...which tbh isn't very good. (the other two are)
