About You

Name: Megan Lee B. (which initials spell out an acronym for one sport that I actually enjoy)
Age: Mid-twenties.
Hometown: One of the worst towns in Michigan, Snover (https://975now.com/avoid-these-least-liked-small-towns-in-michigan/).
Relationships: Single.
Occupation: Student as of right now, but COVID-19 has made that harder.
Current goal(s): Finish up school, get a job in the tech industry, and hopefully finish several projects I've been working on (for the past decade).
Politics: Far(ish) Left
Religion: Apathetic Agnostic

Favourite Things

Food: Pizza. Seriously, you can throw almost anything on a pizza and it'll taste great.
Hot drink: Couldn't tell you. I don't even drink the typical hot drinks when they're hot. I guess I'll just say (iced) coffee.
Cold drink: Soda and fruity alcohol-containing drinks. Coke is choice number one for soda, though.
Snacks: Gardettos' Powdered Mustard Pretzels and their Chex Mix competitor (as well as Chex Mix itself).
Movies: Fight Club, John Carpenter movies, B-movie Horror as well as just B-movies in general. I can really only name one movie as a favourite since it's the only one that has literally changed my life for the better in the end.
Videogames: DOOM (all the way up to the expansion for the third game), Burnout series, Killing Floor 1 & 2, Half-Life: Opposing Force & Blue Shift, Ratchet and Clank series, Twisted Metal series, Gauntlet series, Gran Turismo series, there's a lot. I'll just stop here.
Music: Industrial, Electronic, Rock, Alternative, Grunge, etc. I could go on for awhile listing all the subgenres.
Other: I love to collect physical media and big PC game boxes. I also love to share rare music with the world as I feel like I shouldn't hoard it for myself.

Disliked/Hated Things

Food: Remember when I said pizza could have almost anything put on it and taste great? Well that doesn't include you, you dirty pineapple pizza eaters.
Hot drink: Dunno.
Cold drink: Hard liquor. Sorry, not a fan. (Though there is a scale for me where some liquor tastes so damn awful that it rolls back around to tasting good somehow.)
Snacks: I can't think of any snacks off the top of my head that I dislike.
Movies: Blade Runner (Yeah, sorry. Deckard as a character is boring and the movie is pretty to look at but feels ultimately pointless following his character. Would've much preferred watching Roy's character instead.), generic run-of-the-mill comedies and romance movies, bad sequels (or reboots) to movies I already love.
Videogames: DOOM (2016), System Shock 2, games with an excessively long grind or pay2win mechanics. (I actually don't really dislike very many games at all, it's mostly just bad sequels to games I've already loved.)
Music: Modern country, a lot of modern rap and hip hop, repetitive electronic music, and modern pop as well, not sure about anything else.
Other: I hate being depressed and tired all the time.

I mean, if DooM 1 were to be made now it would have glory kills, because technology!

Not so accurate. Brutal Doom is older than Doom 2016, which, btw, copies all the mechanics of Brutal Doom and, afaik, Bethesda did not mention the guy who created Brutal Doom. Correct me if I am wrong.

BTW: Doom Eternal is overwhelming in what secrets, easter eggs and exploration is about. And I love it!
Posted 1 year ago2020-04-13 12:36:00 UTC Post #344100
Regardless of the glory kill mechanic (which is a perfectly reasonable means of getting a small health boost in terms of gameplay) DOOM 2016 feels a lot closer to the frantic fun my friends and I had with Doom 1 and 2 back in the early 90s. They were never scary, but they were always hilarious. I enjoyed Brutal Doom for a while, but I much prefer the vanilla Doom experience.

DOOM 3 was such a massive disappointment in terms of the overall feel and sluggish pace. At the time it was visually stunning, but I never finished it because it was boring and it got uninstalled as soon as Half-Life 2 came out.

Looking forward to grabbing Eternal on pay day. :D

As someone who played through Doom 2016 again recently for god-knows-what reason, I thought it was completely and utterly... fine. No more, no less.

I'll always remember that Doom 3 expansion pack, featuring the most blatant gravity gun rip-off ever :lol:
Posted 1 year ago2020-04-14 11:43:12 UTC Post #344110
Doom 3 is a decent game, it feels competently made and cohesive with a lot of world building details in things like the PDAs and computers you interact with, even if it drags on for too long, but it barely feels like a survival horror game, more like an action game with a spooky atmosphere.

About You

Name: Thomas J. Boyle, hence the name TJB
Age: 27
Hometown: Depends how you define it. At the moment I live near-ish to this place, but these days I rarely go into town
Relationships: 1 previous that lasted a few years. I've been single for the past ~5ish years, and I'm intending to stay that way
Occupation: I work for a company that leases aircraft to airlines. The main part of my job consists of reading lease contracts and working out from that when maintenance is going to happen in the future, and the associated costs
Current goal(s): I dunno really. I'm interested in being able to play VR games, and then create things for them
Politics: N/A
Religion:
Apathetic Agnostic
Sounds like a good description

Favourite Things

Food: Steak, usually with rice. I've been preparing my rice like this recently, would recommend
Hot drink: Good quality tea. Coffee can be alright too, I suppose
Cold drink: I like root beer, although it tends to be kind of hard to get here. My go to (other than water) would be Coke Zero
Snacks: If I'm watching a movie I might make some popcorn in goose fat, sometimes with a bit of bacon grease. Makes for a very delicious, if probably horribly unhealthy snack
Movies: I tend to like Sci-Fi, among others. I find it hard to answer as I haven't watched many movies over the past few years due to lack of time.
Videogames: Honestly I've played very few games in the past few years. I like Kerbal Space Program, although I haven't played too much of it recently - whenever I advance enough to start building large stations or mining bases it just kills my processor. It's definitely a game I would like to play in VR.
I like Deus Ex, the first System Shock, Halo, Half-Life (obviously). I've also been playing Deep Rock Galactic recently, that's pretty fun.
Music: A lot of different kinds of music, but mainly Metal and Synthwave. Recently I've been listening to Master Boot Record. I'd say my favourite metal band is Rammstein, and my favourite synthwave artist would be Perturbator. For the past few years I've been collecting music in the form of vinyl records - I like physical media, it's nice to have something you can hold in your hands
Other: I've been watching Star Trek recently, it seems pretty good.

Disliked/Hated Things

Food: There are a good few things I'm not a fan of, but if I had to pick one it would be coconut. Fuck coconut, and fuck anyone who ruins snacks by adding it in.
Hot drink: Poor quality tea, which in my book also includes any tea that's got milk in it
Cold drink: I'm not a fan of most fruit juices
Snacks:
Anything with coconut. The creator of Bounty is a sociopath.
Movies: Hard to say. I thought Suicide Squad was terrible, but I knew it would be ahead of time.
Videogames: The only game I can remember actively disliking would be The Stanley Parable. I would have preferred to spend the money on an hour watching paint dry, because at least then I would know ahead of time not to get my hopes up.
Music: What with the advent of streaming services, I don't know how to answer this one. I can't remember the last time I listened to music that I didn't specifically request.
Other: Daylight Savings time. Whichever sadistic bastard thought that up must be having a great time in hell right now.

And thats bacicly my life story.....

@Archibald

I do care when somebody wants to challenge my logic, but usually those who do are easily defeated only becase it is the principles that are important and not the little details they try to cling onto.
Religion, a science of the mind, traslated meaning would be "a way of which ones life is led" is present in every man, woman and child. What is your religion, depends on what you nurture within you, and is with out a doubt a set of principles that are applyed to everything that person defined and applied within it self (talking about ones mind).

To arrive at this statement where I am took a lot of sacrifice and endured hardships in life out of which many cost plenty of time, health and money.
It is pretty simple to defend your self online but I would like to see us discuss these things in person as much more information is passed via guestures and just by a display of physical presence and emotion.

Simply put - If a man could just like that realise that everything he knows and does is wrong he wouldnt be here in the first place. It is very hard for one to give up himself and change to something completely diametrically different.

But the key is in ones life principles as they are the starting point of all expressed emotion.

About You

Name: Luis
Age: Teen
Hometown: Closest I'll specify is Northrhine-Westfalia
Relationships: None
Occupation: School
Current goal(s): Get rid of my shitty manipulative friend, finish school decently, expanding my home lab
Politics: Not interested
Religion: I don't believe in god, but one objectively can't say what is truly real, so I just choose what I like most, which is science,

Favourite Things

Food: Everything very spicy
Hot drink: Would be coffee if microgram amounts of caffeine wouldn't make me horribly dizzy
Cold drink: Fruity things are cool, but I also enjoy sweet things such as milkshakes
Snacks: General sweet chocolate things, cookies or cake
Movies: Fantasy or sci-fi. But I rarely watch videos, I usually watch series of fantasy or sci-fi, sometimes also horror.
Videogames: I am very picky, and picked out a lot of very great games and I all love them equally, so let me pick out a few: Half-Life series (obviously), anything from Frictional Games, I also sometimes enjoy me some FNAF. I also very much love a nearly unknown game called Distance, which is a mysterious horror game with the very experimental element of you being a car robot chasing an anomaly, and also Terraria has a very special place in my heart
Music: Dark ambient, creepy music such as earthbound giygas music or the cave from the past and the other track that plays there
Other: I very much enjoy science, and practice home chemistry and am collecting elements as well as hard to synthesize compounds

Disliked/Hated Things

Food: Many vegetables, lots of other stuff I forgot
Hot drink: Also coffee since it makes me feel very bad
Cold drink: not sure
Snacks: many sorts of chocolate, sometimes
Movies: Horror movies, romances also isn't really something I will watch if I can avoid it, some other things I don't remember are also in that category probably
Videogames: most puzzle games, most strategy games except for some games in the C&C series, some other games
Music: All that wasn't named above, except when it fits into a game (for example in Distance or Terraria)
Other: I hate when people say that they don't like chemistry because they don't understand that chemistry is the study of all matter, and that they buy everything which has natural written on it, as if everything found in nature isn't as synthetic as everything else is
