    Good Horror games

    Clock Tower on the ps1 scared the shit out of me. Point and click horror mystery adventure where the scissorman could show up at any time and start chasing you again. Really love Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth as well. Also there's a very creepy point and click game called Scratches I remember enjoying.

    Doomworld Members' Sketchbook

    Splatterhouse movie/comic designs. Plus, some Then and Now Deviantart memes I did years ago, comparing my old drawings with newer efforts. 1) Sexy bunny girl. Left is very detailed but has no character. Right is cartoonier but her personality is unmistakable. 2) Egyptian Goddess Hathor: left is junior high, right is post-college. 3) The storyboards I posted earlier weren't my first attempt at a splatterhouse comic. Left is a sequence from the one i drew in junior high. Right is the same sequence reimagined in my storyboards twenty-odd years later.

    Your favorite video game announcers.

    The overworld and dungeon narrators from original Dungeon Keeper are among my all-time favorites. I also like the robots in another Bitmap Bros game called Z, which I guess technically counts...? Least favorites: the asshole announcer in Crazy Taxi, and the god of Funkotron in Toejam and Earl 3. The second either of them talks, I lose my temper.

    A few excerpts from my old Splatterhouse graphic novel storyboards.
  5. It does. Maybe you were lucky, but it's happened. I have rubbed up against a monster, pointed the gun in their mouth, pulled the trigger, and left a Looney Tunes outline around the unharmed monster.

  7. The monsters die easier. That's not the same as a weapon being overpowered. Even then, you can't miss with the SSG at point blank, unlike the Doom 3 shotgun, which more than once COMPLETELY MISSED A TARGET AT POINT BLANK RANGE for me. Utter garbage, even compared to the rest of the garbage arsenal. I'd also like to nominate the Riot Gun from Shadow Warrior. Awful fire rate, wasteful alt fire, and either way you're forced to reload after only four shots. Even regular pump-actions have a minimum of 5 shots before they go dry, plus one in the chamber. It has a magazine and four gatling barrels. The damn thing should be a fully-auto shotgun, not a pepperbox gun with one shot per barrel. The riot gun LOOKS awesome, but it's borderline worthless.
  8. I've played tons of wads don't start out as slaughter wads, but turn into them little over halfway through. So the bitching is valid, and "get gud" isn't a valid argument because you can be a master at Doom and still find them tedious and unfun.

    Worst Ending in a videogame?

    You have to be asleep to go to subcon. It all really happened. Hacx has the worst ending. Don't end your game with a To Be Continued, guys...

    Drew Dr Gaul from Last of the Ghost Lions (which I'm still struggling to finish writing), based on my Project Einherjar mod. Inspired by Mazoyah's fan-art for the mod (right).

    Female Protagonist in the new Doom movie?

    Assuming it isn't speculation and they are indeed arbitrarily turning Doomguy into Doomgirl, they're doing it because of the current genderswap trend in media. They made a genderswap fanfic Ghostbusters movie, and they're giving Dr Who and James Bond the same treatment (despite male/female timelords being established as canon, and despite there being plenty of female Bond equivalents in print at the same time as Fleming that would make their own great franchises). Brand awareness + fan controversy = (theoretical) $$$. That's it. I've planned female protagonists for a few of my own Doom books, but I stuck to the source material in the beginning, THEN took creative license with the rest. Didn't just take the original Doom story and do whatever the fuck I wanted. EDIT: Kinda reminds me of similar issues with arbitrary character changes, where depending what the change was, the same people would react differently. Change White Nick Fury to Minority Nick Fury and someone goes "omg like it even matters who plays him lol"; a white guy gets cast as Iron Fist and that same person is outraged that it wasn't an Asian actor (Iron Fist was white in the comics, dumbass). My point being, artistic integrity has become a joke for the sake of profit and far-left internet politics. Kinda curious how Blade woulda turned out if they changed him to a cholita.

    Twitter locking accounts for thanking others

    Coulda fooled me, this day and age.
  14. In the four years she had been the facility’s warden, Juno had seen all kinds of clients: abusive foremen, lonely old maids, military recruiters, and curious girls looking to celebrate their eighteenth birthdays. She had rented stock to politicians, police captains, single mothers, and even her own valkyries. She had signed for her men to be subjected to eugenics tests, medical experiments, military drafts, and violent sporting events. She had never served the despot of a neighboring city before. Nor had she been politely asked to inventory and surrender all of her homosexual males. The letter from Gaulheim had done just that, after praising Juno’s service to the state for several purple paragraphs. Juno grunted. “I have better things to do with my time than entertain an entitled dinosaur with a bloated ego.” “Shoulda replied to her letter, then.” “I couldn’t be bothered to put ‘Fuck Off’ on a postcard.”

    Podcast I appeared on recently, where we read a terrible story, and then the most amazing story.
