For the majority of people, he wasn’t wrong as not many stuck around Classic in the long run. Read more

There’s no pleasure in being right about it, but people predicted exactly this before classic even launched. Particularly, that launch would have a big influx of “tourist” players who lose interest a few months in, while the long-term players all hit level cap and stay there. Manually assembling a group below cap Read more

Yes, as it turns out, many of Classic’s systems were changed because they weren’t good, and nostalgia changes a lot of memory

Oh that’s right! Thanks for the reminder. Now I’m getting the urge to start re watching DS9.

I suggested the same thing to my wife if we ever have a daughter. Although I’m actually a little more fond of using her surname as a first name. The spelling would be a little awkward but it sounds beautiful. Now if only I can convince her that Quark is a totally normal name that won’t get the kid picked on.

... I guess I didn’t think that through too well. I was thinking along the lines of “If this guy, who is totally unashamed to boast about all these other things, is still afraid to admit to being a prostitute, then it has a blanket effect on basically anything else,” but yeah I guess that is bad logic.

Not truly related, but I’ve always thought the line from AMG’s “B**** Better Have My Money” (no, not the eponymous Beyonce song, that’s a completely different song), “I ain’t a prostitute, but I’ll knock the boots” displays a huge amount of insecurity that anyone feels about sex work. Read more

Man, I really loved the 2016 Doom and was very excited for Eternal. And when tearing through Doom Eternal I was having a blast at first. Read more

It was a pretty good line. Probably one of my favourite of the game so far.

My wife and I loved what they did with this bit. It’s basically as if the creators knew they couldn’t do what they did before but knew they could still have a lot of fun with it without it being at the expense of a specific group of people. Instead it is a caberet show that asks you to get invested in the energy and Read more

FYI: played it more, got all the tools, and I take back everything I said: the game is an absolute blast and I am completely in love now. Particularly the fourth slayer gate: I honestly can’t remember the last time I had that much fun in a shooter. But holy hell, I also cannot remember the last time I was so exhausted Read more

Well part of what makes things fall into place is the progression and actually *getting* the whole kit. Some of the mechanics start out bordering on non-optional during the early levels because you have so few options, and it’s only once you actually start getting key components of your arsenal (especially the rocket Read more

I certainly think higher difficulty settings make things fall into place more. There’s way more incentive to use your kit to the fullest where that doesn’t always happen in the lower tiers.

I’m eager to play this on PC! Having faster weapon changing will probably feel like a godsend.

Also: don’t be stingy with using your flamethrower or chainsaw, there’s plenty of ammo for them everywhere, and they will save your but if you’re down on ammo or health. You’re supposed to frequently use them.

I hated reading that people are afraid to talk because the community will attack them. Why does every community need to attack everyone? Why can’t we let people speak and if you don’t like what they are saying either ignore it or dispute it? Cancel culture really needs to stop.
