    Thoughts on Boomer Shooter YouTubers?

    ❤ Civvie ❤ Anyway, the reason this thread caught my eye was I watched a Minecraft WR speedrun and the runner said their friend (who did Half Life runs) told them "why did you get a YouTube partnership?" and the Minecraft runner said "because you run a boomer shooter LOL". This was my first introduction to the term and I feel bad YouTube apparently doesn't care about them. decino was mentioned whom I also love BigMac I want to love but has said mean things about the Twilight series Can I forgive the BigMac? Time will tell

    It Runs Doom: Nintendo's Game & Watch Super Mario Bros edition

    This Game&Watch hacker had a great use case for miniwad and was able to find it with a bit of research. Good job again fraggle! I'm very excited what further frontiers 'real' doom source can reach with miniwad.

    Ultraviolence = HARD

    I may be the last to learn this but to me it's a huge revelation. I'm very glad to hear it. I might be reading this wrong but to me @whybmonotacrab's point was more about some of the tryhard attitude that infiltrates this community just like any other. When someone says "I'm not that good, sorry" then blasts through everything in UV, they're probably just trying to shield themselves from the "u suk" idiots in the comments. On top of that is the whole "decino isn't that good" stuff that's gone around for a while. Sure, he's not the best ever or god-tier, and I'm sure he's got some obnoxious fans who need to hear this, but to me it just causes people to watch decino vids thinking "wow ok so this is what it looks like to be 'okay' at doom, no wonder modern doom maps are too hard for me". Yeah that's a criticism I've always had against Doom's difficulty settings. I think, like it is in the modern Doom games, most people still want to kill the same enemies, not some zombieman replacements or an emptier-looking room. And I don't think that's unreasonable.
  5. This is how I felt when I started playing, as did many people, but if you stick with it you'll learn the mechanics and the game really starts to shine. Just keep at it. Also don't be afraid to turn down the difficulty, especially if you're playing on UV. Even ITYTD is difficult, at least to me.

    Alex Trebek has died.

    As others have stated, pancreatic cancer is pretty much a death sentence, still I'd hoped maybe he'd gotten some exclusive, experimental treatment that was working. I actually saw the episode this clip is from when it aired, and even watching it now it's hard not to tear up.
  7. I agree with OP about E2M9, it's a fun map to attempt some infighting, and overall it's a weird little alcove of nonsense, something I expect from a secret level. E4 has been pretty divisive in general for as long as I can remember. I love it though.

    Doom Books [JOKE]

    I'd probably buy all of them, Kindle versions except for revenant deodorant, of which I'd own multiple hard-cover copies.

    What's your favourite DOOM source port?

    I was all about ZDoom back in the day but literally became a filthy Boom-er at some point and play glboom-plus now, for the demo compatibility, extremely efficient performance, and mostly-vanilla experience. I remember when glboom-plus was the only port that could run nuts.wad at an acceptable framerate and I wonder if that was the moment that changed me.

    The DWmegawad Club plays: Demonfear & 1000 Lines 2

    MAP05 Cool brick house. I do see the yellow key clearly (prboom-plus2517 complevel 2). I enjoyed the small-roomed house motif from earlier and I enjoy it here as well. The tall windows look anachronistically modern, while allowing me to easily step over the sill. MAP06 Crusher time! I like the green tekwall theme. I managed to linedef skip the exit lol

    When setting up a Doom rig

    Simple answer is no. But there are so many dimensions to this question. Some folks try to run Brutal Doom/Project Brutality on a 10-year-old laptop and wonder why their frames drop. Running something like prboom-plus though, you'll probably get over 1000 frames per second on any system built this century. I do remember a time when Doom Builder 2 wouldn't work in Windows Vista without killing windows explorer. But that's just old-folk reminiscing.

    Doom 1 and 2 are ugly?

    3 times? It's ok if a friend likes different things, I'll make a passing suggestion of something I like to a friend if the situation calls for it, but I won't push past that. I'm sure you'll meet some other human who loves the Doom games at some point and you can be friends with them too! There's just so much content in this day and age I feel like it's almost a waste, having an 'overlap' in interests. In other news, I don't think anyone's commented directly on this yet, but filtered textures are just as pretty as un-filtered textures. Fight me! That was a great one. The Ars Technica War Stories in general are an awesome watch, at least from what I've seen. I need to finish the rest of them.
