    what are you working on? I wanna see your wads.

    Are you KIDDING ME? Please drop me a line if you need someone to playtest!
  2. I'll let this speak for itself.

    Why was the guitar teacher sent to prison? He was caught fingering a minor.
  4. Heretic: reduce enemy health and increase speed and deadliness. Hexen: more enemy and weapon variety, greater dependence on artifacts.

    Good Things About the Doom Movie

    On the same note, how would you feel if I responded to your threads with browbeating lectures about your old posts in unrelated threads? I'd look a bit like a condescending prick, yeah? That thread asked for opinions on Plutonia, and I answered honestly. If fans of the mod got mad that I knocked it, that's their problem -- I clearly criticized the design, not the people who play it. If you want to talk about how tone is more important than content, make a thread about it or PM me directly. That's my biggest issue with it as a Doom fan. Outside of the license it's supposed to be based on, it's still worth a watch now and then. And I totally agree that the Rock probably shoulda been Doomguy, althought it was a lot of fun watching him turn.
  7. Everyone has plenty of gripes about the Doom movie starring Karl Urban and the Rock. I'd like to highlight the good points, and encourage others to do the same if something noteworthy hasn't been mentioned yet. - The main characters are estranged brother and sister. The obvious choice for this sort of thing would be ex-lovers who rekindle their previous fling, so I really like that they went off the beaten path here. - They could've easily just done CG beasties, but they went old school (Guys in rubber suits!) for most of the creature effects. Having grown up with monster movies filled with nothing BUT practical effects, this really tugged my heart string. - The first-person segment is pretty divisive, but it's still the highlight of the movie. If they'd done the entire thing this way, it could've really been a cinematic oddity and maybe could've had a cult following. - If you forget that it's supposed to be Doom, you can still enjoy it for what it is: a dumb monster movie. - The soundtrack is badass. I got it for my birthday the year the film came out.
  8. People whose first experience with any of my mods is on the UV setting would disagree. I don't get it, either. Not all mappers will balance their maps for difficulty settings the same way, so my first playthrough is always on HMP, and if it's well-designed, it's still fun and still a good challenge. I play on UV next when I want a tougher challenge. Why someone would rather have their first playthrough require constant savescumming is beyond me. I have yet to see someone on youtube enjoy themselves while playing a mod on UV that kills them every two seconds, yet they insist on doing it like it's some kind of macho Doomer code. I believe that's what the OP is referring to. That's not what "save scumming" is. Save scumming is saving every two steps, or at every door, or after every kill, or otherwise being obsessive compulsive about saving after any tiny amount of progress. It's perfectly reasonable to save before going through a teleporter or grabbing a key, or after finally killing that damn cyberdemon.

    Do you actually finish Megawads?

    1. If the quality is consistent throughout and it doesn't degenerate into another Hell Revealed exercise in elitist tedium. 2. I think so, since it's easier for players to finish, AND easier for the modders/mappers to finish. I released Midgard Outlaw as an 11-map episode instead of a 3-episode megawad precisely for this reason. 3. I suppose so, but I'm still more likely to play a smaller project to the end. I'd rather be left wanting more than have the wad outstay its welcome. 4. Let them contemplate their lack of creativity on the Tree of Woe.
  10. I've concluded this project with Version 3.0: due to life stuff and lack of public interest, I've taken all the unreleased maps and turned Midgard Outlaw into a finished 11-map wad, since I hate having unfinished projects laying about. It's easier to finish individual episode releases, so that's what I'll do from now on. The new maps (revised bonus maps from the previous version, and never-before-seen maps) follow where the demo left off, bringing the total map count to 11 (12 if you find the secret map). I'm pretty sure it's working properly. Give it a whirl and let me know if anything breaks!

    Strange Aeons 5.7

    By that point you should have discovered that the revenants are friendly and fight monsters for you.

    lol I did get carried away in the Heretic one. They shoulda just removed my entry, since I ended up putting it in its own mod anyway.

    I would love to join this, if able. My drivers are still kaput and it still affects my ability to make Doom-related stuff, but I might give it a try anyway if I think of something worthwhile.

    A father was so caught up in preparing his daughter's 8th birthday party, he forgot to get her a present. He asked her, "Sweetheart, what's the one thing you want for your birthday more than anything?" The little girl thought for a minute. She said, "Daddy, what I want for my birthday more than anything is a Barbie and a GI Joe." The father thought for a minute, puzzled. "Barbie and a GI Joe? But Barbie comes with Ken!" The little girl gawked. "No, Daddy, she FAKES it with Ken! She REALLY comes with GI Joe!"
