    Do you care about the lyrics in music?

    <3 Nay-saying critics be damned, Peart writes excellent lyrics. Lyrics matter to me in the sense that terrible cringe-worthy ones easily detract from a song and can even lead to me downright hating it, while awesome lyrics help immerse me in the song even more and often get me singing along. They don't necessarily have to have some deep philosophical meaning for me to find them great, but that added layer of depth can sometimes be a nice bonus. On the flipside, lyrics that do have some kind of message the artist is shoving down my throat so hard that I'm practically dying of asphyxiation can be incredibly irritating. An exception to the whole "bad lyrics detract from the song" thing is lyrics that are so bad in the stupidly cheesy sense that I simply can't take them seriously on any level and just can't resist liking them for that factor. Such is the case with stuff like Dragonforce and Rick Astley.
  3. No. It will be called InfernoZ to appeal more to the urban youth demographic.

    I'm a coffee achiever, Sam.

    I love it. I take it straight black like a real manly man. The stronger, the better. It really doesn't have much of an impact on me at all though. Used to work at a Barnes & Noble with a Starbucks in it, so I'd be able to get my fix for dirt cheap. All my co-workers thought I was a complete nutcase for being able to down that stuff straight up. They're pretty much right on that one.

    Your True Opinon On... (#1): Mortal Kombat

    At a high level they're pretty much all about being tactical, playing mindgames, reading your opponent, baiting your opponent into certain attacks, etc. Basically like a strategy game with an advanced execution barrier to get past. Of course I myself am nowhere near that level, but I am well aware that button mashing is a very fine way to have your rump served to you on fine china. My experience with the older Mortal Kombat titles as a child basically boils down to me laming out the CPU by throwing constant streams of projectiles. That said, the latest Mortal Kombat title is great. Feels much more fluid than most of the previous titles. It's less technical than most other fighters this gen like BlazBlue, Street Fighter 4, and Marvel 3, but that makes it like a nice relaxing break in between playing those. Also the fact that NRS is constantly patching the game and looking to make it a true contender in the competitive scene is fantastic. Now if only they'd get that damn netcode patched up already...

    Vanguard.wad - now on idgames!

    I'd hate to see the sad, sorry state your hard wood floors are in.

    Vanguard.wad - now on idgames!

    Now I may just be insane, but I'm fairly certain items like ammo and health are generally placed where they will be most beneficial to the gameplay and not where they look the prettiest.
  8. I find it impossible to hate Dragonforce. I mean yeah all their stuff sounds practically the same, and I certainly wouldn't classify them as anything close to world class musicians, but they're just so damn over-the-top cheesy that I can't help but love them.

    TF2 Merchandise

    ^ This. Oh so this. It's a game people. You know, something played for enjoyment and not exactly meant to be taken seriously? I don't give two shits about the shop since I won't buy anything from it, and why in the name of black Jesus should I or anyone care if somebody else wants to waste their money on it? Also I love all these so called "unbalanced" weapons and such. Gives the game a little variety and I personally enjoy the wackiness it brings to the table. Then again I don't play competitively and am the kind of guy that enjoys items in my Smash Bros. so whatever. Ah hell, why did I even bother to type something up when a simple "deal w/ it" would have sufficed?

    Mapper's block! Show your abandoned maps here

    This thread has inspired me to dig through all my old crap, so prepare to get flooded with a bunch of screenshots from mediocre, several year old scraps. I was quite surprised since I thought a lot of this junk was gone for good. Random sp map #47586.329194. There's actually quite a bit done on this one, but it could definitely use a few improvements to both the layout and visuals. http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png http://img704.imageshack.us/img704/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png Yet another little sp map. This is actually an older version, as I remember changing the theme and making some visual improvements. Dunno where that one is though. http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png Some little outdoorsy thing. That's literally all there is to it. http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png The start to some e1 replacement that never went anywhere. I think it was actually a recreation of my first map ever. It sucks. http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png http://img253.imageshack.us/img253/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png Maps from your stereotypical "I'm gonna make a megawad even though I lack both the skill and drive to do so!" project. http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png http://img814.imageshack.us/img814/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png http://img524.imageshack.us/img524/1821/screenshotdoom201101031.png Some limit removing plutonia map. http://img683.imageshack.us/img683/5082/screenshotdoom201006231j.png http://img683.imageshack.us/img683/4661/screenshotdoom201006231o.png http://img683.imageshack.us/img683/7929/screenshotdoom201006231.png A fancy pants zdoom tower thingamabob. http://img244.imageshack.us/img244/8283/screenshotdoom200809051yy8.png Welp, that's all for now. Believe me when I say that this is merely the tip of the iceberg. This is mostly ancient stuff. Expect more when I start digging through my other hard drives.

    Is this garbage or trash?

    Looks very Piet Mondrian-esque. I like it.
