  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  8. 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.

    Piracy: DukeMatch map

    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!
  13. 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".

    Made any DooM OCs?

    This is somewhat on topic, I compiled a whole bunch of doomguy variant skins, got 40 all up: http://www.doomshack.org/wads/40skins.zip Could be useful as a base for modification

    Can modern FPS titles be considered as Doom clones?

    As many others have stated, no. However it would be silly to deny that many of the old batch are very 'doom like' compared to the post-half life/post-goldeneye era. Duke, Heretic, etc all have a different theme and weapons and all that but still remain visually similar in that they're 2D sprites moving around in a heavily pixelated "3D" environment. Old FPS titles were sorta forced to be visually similar in that regard due to the hardware constraints of the time so I can see how they all got lumped in together. Oh, I'm not so sure about that - being held up against one of the greatest games ever made as a benchmark for comparison seems like a compliment, if anything. I don't think these games would have done any better if the term 'doom clone' never existed, each one is good but none of them are groundbreakers. I think that's the biggest reason for them not selling as well as Doom. It's not uncommon for a modern gamer to look at FPS titles from the old batch and say "damn, that's a badass Doom mod!". I've heard it first hand from several people - that's how similar they all are at a passing glance (and sometimes well beyond that)

    What is the best map you've ever made?

    I've released about ~60 sp/coop maps and about ~80 deathmatch maps publicly over the years so it's tough shit to narrow it down to just one. Shovelware Adventure is my gut reaction, but other maps that I've gotten comments on include Map07 of TheDevilzWork, Map07 of SinSeven and Map16 of Revenge of the 90's. None of them are perfect by any means but I can see why they stand out.
  17. So, in essence, if he'd sold it as 'sealed' or 'like new', he'd be fine? Seems like he done goofed, assuming I understand this. I get that a lot of this is the result of an attempt to fuck secondhand sellers but if it's that easy to get around, I don't see it as being too horrible, really.
  18. Uncultured. There is nothing better than sitting down with a nice book while some soothing, low-key salsa plays in the background. That's probably my favorite thing about Doom 2, what keeps me coming back after all this time. Expand your horizons my friend. If these features do not make their way into the new Doom, my heart will be shattered.

    This website HAS to be satire right? I mean come on, it HAS to be..... ... Fuck, it isn't is it.

    Cool Baseball bat wad!

    Is this only for the latest GZDoom? I get an error when I try to run it in Zand:
  21. I think this is a good move overall. Censorship breeds persecution complexes which leads to radicalism. I don't want this to get too political though so I'll leave it at this.

    WTF [Doom cover art]

    I own wolf3D for SNES and the cover has always mystified me. Doom and PC Wolf take some license but they still evoke the right mood, if that makes sense - SNES Wolf looks like Billy Idol, it couldn't possibly be less like BJ. it's a result of the same mentality though I'm sure: "Just have a cool looking cover, who cares if it's nothing like the game", but in the case of Mr. Idol, it's not even cool. I mean, come on, at least have Billy shooting a nazi or something! I can only imagine how hilarious and off-key the nazi would look given how they treated BJ, it would probably be an Elvis impersonator who just happened to be wearing a nazi uniform or something.
  23. The only legal way to obtain it is to buy it, but nerve.wad requires a limit removing port. Iirc there's only a small handful of PSX exclusives, but they can all be found in the relatively popular PSX Doom TC. The Doom64 maps were recently converted over to vanilla Doom2 format by some brilliant mappers. I think that covers all the console exclusive maps.. may be forgetting something though!

    What DooM mods do you play?

    I'll play a little of anything, tons of various mods are hosted on the multiplayer servers so I leave nothing out, but the ones I actively use are Eon Weapons or FunGuns for deathmatch servers. Wads that are decent overall but have really bad weapon spawns are dramatically improved, since the overall power of each gun is a little more balanced to keep up with the SSG (plus I love railguns)
  25. I haven't made jack shit for over a year now primarily because of the "there's enough stuff of this quality or better" mentality. I don't exactly like it, but I can't seem to shake it. Why make Doomkid's Deathmatch 5 when there's better DM turf out there anyway? Why bother making yet another vanilla mapset? I would like to just revert to not giving 2 shits and slamming down loads of lines in Doom Builder til I'm suddenly sitting on a complete wad ready for release, but the drive to do so is just not there, primarily due to me finally (unintentionally) setting some kind of standard of quality. Piece of crap mentality that totally backfired.
