  1. No. We all need to fight and yell and scream and argue about pointless bullshit 95% of the time, we also need to use really complicated, needlessly long terminology so we all sound smarter than those assholes we're arguing with and we need to do it all on national TV! Oh yeah, throw in some war and famine and stuff too, just for good measure.
  2. It's important to find a balance that works for you. It's good to be aware of what's going on in the world but if keeping up to date is stressing you out, take a break. It's true that unless you plan on becoming a politician (barf) or a revolutionary or a somewhat prominent voice, all you really have is your vote, so read enough to keep informed but don't hesitate to take a step back and breathe for a while, ignoring politics for a few weeks, if it's what you need to do to keep your head clear and keep your stress/anxiety levels in check. There's no shame in admitting that it's all a bit much from time to time, nor is there any shame in admitting that it all moves a bit fast and is hard to keep up with. Protip: Anyone who claims to be a political guru is probably full of shit!
  3. I watch a wide variety of YouTube channels that do review type things but this pretty much sums every every NC video I've attempted to sit through over the years. The "Angry Review" humor he does just never landed with me in contrast to people like AVGN and the actual substantive aspects of his reviews fail hard in comparison to channels like IHE or Cinema for Cynics or whatever else. The sketch bits are cringe in it's purest goddamn form, as they are in 99.99% of YouTube videos regardless of who makes them. The Doom movie is kinda crappy but I'd easily rather watch it than a lone NC video, at least it doesn't make my skin crawl with laughably awful attempts at humor and "acting". Its strange that some YouTubers who I find genuinely hilarious like AVGN and TJ Kirk sucked his dick so hard (creatively speaking) because their delivery is so much better and more genuine, thus getting the kind of laughs NC is clearly striving for. Obviously it lands with a lot of people, but he's always just annoyed me. A couple of my friends really like him, maybe that's why I have so much crap to spew about him. There's my one time rambling response to any threads about Nostalgia Critic for all time. EDIT: I just watched this for 30 seconds and it fucking sealed the deal
  4. It's definitely not chess - the enemies are basically pawns with specific movements and means of attack, you have to calculate various factors to make the most effective kills and I'm sure there are other parallels to be drawn. I get the choice of a Dora game, it's pretty much opposite tonally and where Doom is fun and full of action, I can wager a Dora game would be neither. I'm interested to hear elaboration on Myst as an answer, that could be interesting. I'm struggling to think of an answer here, personally. Some important key factors would be slow movement, bad music, no killing or violent combat whatsoever. I can think of plenty of games that have the first two down-pat but even most shitty games feature some kind of fighting or killing, even in a G rated sense. lol I love thinking about pointless things like this, very amusing, curios to see what others will pick
  5. I was going to say that Doomguy wouldn't fit in with the rest of the crew at all, but since Brawl there have been loads of character choices that seemed weird/unfitting/balance destroying/goddamn game ruining (salt levels rising) so I guess I retract my initial thought. Put him in there with Ranger as an echo fighter, why the hell not at this point?

    Is the 8th Generation of gaming terrible?

    I only just saw this post, what do you mean by the 'first few'? Like the first few games ever made? If that's what you mean, even then it's debatable - I'd rather play pong with another person than the majority of games from any generation. If 'the first few' includes stuff as late as Tetris then doubly so. Just as with every generation since, there was a mix of mind-blowingly fun games that you can sink countless hours into and awful crap you're tired of after a minute even back in the prehistoric era of gaming.

    Getting annoyed by some words

    This one really gets to me for some reason, especially when people call things "objectively better" or "objectively the best" or whatever - it's so weird to see people use it specifically and exclusively for things that are subjective by their very nature..

    Levity In Doom Games

    Firing a lone BFG shot into a crowd of 8 people in deathmatch and killing most/all of them - Even better if its a lone, well placed rocket. I also love seeing absurd chains of events in DM games, someone fires a rocket, gets shot, but as they're dying their rocket hits some barrels or something and scores them a double kill. So many funny chains of events happen in DM, coupled with the fast pace and high kill count it's one of the factors that keeps me coming back!
  10. Resurrection is way overused in the Doom series as it is - not only the iPhone game, but Erection of Evil back in the early 00's as well. That's on top of how cheesy it already is by default to add "resurrection" to any title.. I cannot think of a more overused word in sequel titles, except perhaps "returns"..

    Is the 8th Generation of gaming terrible?

    Every generation has it's ups and downs and even just a little bit of reading will show that shady practices and subpar / rubbish games are nothing new. For all the (totally valid) complaints we see about DLC and 'bought reviews' and everything else, we actually have access to information about games before we buy them now. In the past, sometimes the one and only lead you had was word of mouth and just maybe if all the planets aligned, you might even have had access to Nintendo Power or whatever, but even then we were essentially seeing ads disguised as reviews. Garbage was peddled right there alongside gold with the same price tag. tl;Dr only the classics stand the test of time and the grass is always greener on the other side.

    Excellent port!

    I'm Also Looking to Play and Record Your Maps

    That ending could have been way more obvious, definitely a flaw in hindsight. On UV, that area spawns monsters just as the real IoS does so perhaps that makes it more obvious, while also giving to some targets to spend all the BFG ammo on. There's also more fodder in general and a few extra teleporting enemy traps that were reserved for UV, for whatever it's worth. Really enjoyable playthrough as always!

    What are you listening to?

    So apparently Chinese hip hop kicks ass, that's good to know!
  15. Seriously, it's not hard. It's like they're embarrassed about there being 4 of them or something. Doom Eternal isn't the best name Imo but it's a hell of a lot better than just "Doom" or "Doom 2".
