I like this new Fallout 3 DLC  

Paid tribute to some of the featured artists in my Animal Crossing home

Picked up my oculus quest headset and purchased and played through quite a few titles. I don’t consistently game but when I do I really get into it. The quest is pretty low-powered compared to PSVR bu

@ambergonk I could be wrong but I think Doom64 is supposed to lead into Doom Eternal, which is why they gave it to us with it. IE 64 is somewhere between the 2016 Doom and Eternal.

edit: apparently it’s just a new level in 64 that bridges the gap or something. I dunno! Sam Hayden is around tho, I can feel it ?

so far I’m enjoying it I prefer the fast pace and extra difficulty compared to 2016. And the visuals, it’s a purdy game for sure.

I heard that Doom 2016 followed the events of Doom 64, but don't quote me on that.

Yeah the amount of detail in the environments is pretty crazy. And I'm gradually getting a better feel for the new mechanics, like learning to use the chainsaw on fodder enemies when you run out of ammo, plus side attacks like frag grenade, flame belch, blood punch, etc. Feels like a combination of boot camp and martial arts training in a psychological sense.

Yes! The little things in combat make a huge difference. I find the bigger battles really exciting so far. I’m playing on nightmare. Gets my heart rate going lol. 

edit: I lied - just double checked, I've got it on Ultra Violence

Many are in the same boat as you, and it's a feeling I'm all too familiar with. Only this year was I finally able to afford new hardware.

Doom Eternal is super demanding in terms of reflexes, and the difficulty is so amped up compared to other shooters that I struggle to keep up sometimes. I was literally breaking a sweat in one combat section and had to remove my socks just to cool down. Guess I'm used to the slower, more relaxed pace of No Man's Sky.

Classic Doom is still great though. Plus Doom 64 is officially available on Steam now (not a coincidence) - one that I never actually finished.

Started playing Pikuniku and finished it in about 4 hours. It's a sweet little game, but it strangely has very little content for the kind of game it is. Also, some transitions and scripted events are done very cheap, especially compared to its awesome physics. Dunno. 6/10.

Doom Eternal was a blast. I think I liked Doom 2016 a tad bit more but I was stoked that they brought back the hub level system with the Fortress of Doom. Much love.

Bring on the Chex Quest dlc

Thinking that the police see the electricity usage and think there is a major grow-op, raid the place and find that, they'd probably arrest him anyway just because.

Yeah I plowed through. Fuck Marauders.

I'm really impressed how fast and efficient the new IdTech engine is. It ran pretty smooth even on my aging laptop.

Yeah the engine is amazing imo, with  all settings cranked still averaging 120fps. I’m really enjoying the game with the difficulty cranked up, having to try some of the big battles like 10x but it’s so rewarding when I finally pass them. 
 

so far this is my fav Doom game since doom 2.

      This is just a rant.
       
      I am so fucking sick of people dismissing Ae's post-Chiastic output ("where are the tunes?!") and recommending their early albums instead as "absolute masterpieces" with "soul" and "melody" and "blah blah blah".
       
      It just screams "I am a stupid, impatient, close-minded, casual, basic, stuck-in-the-past, not-capable-of-listening, knowing-nothing-about-music-melody-rhythm-and-structure, accidentally-bumped-into-IDM-when-I-was-young-and-now-I-am-old-and-tired-with-kids-in-need-of-easy-fun, rather-listen-to-boards-of-canada-because-deep-emotions-tunes-nature-and-geocatching-for-rare-eps, I-can't-hum-it-in-a-shower dumbass".
       
      I fucking hate those idiots (especially when they talk about melodies when they actually mean timbres...).
       
      I absolutely get they don't like the music (and that is perfectly fine, don't get me wrong) but their arguments and points are asking for a punch in their faces. So fucking stupid it actually hurts.

      So for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle.
       
      I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...)
       
      Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game.
       
      Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).

      Anyone else been playing Elite: Dangerous recently? I've got it and have been enjoying it like hell. I've recently been playing around Alliance territory in my ultra-modified Viper Mk III destroying any wanted ships in my path. Although it's amazing, the game still feels a little empty, but I'm sure the developers will flesh it out more soon enough.

      And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES
       
      So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation!
       
      There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like!
       
      So, here are the important rules:
       
      1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015!
      2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc.
      3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom.
      4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes.
       
      In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime.
      In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully.
       
      Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
