Doom stuff here too; I've been working on graphic replacements for Smooth Doom using the Neural Upscale 2x textures as the source, I'm not touching Monsters and Gore (since they are tied to the monsters) but everything else gets the treatment and it... it looks nice.


Wow! That looks pretty incredible. I'll have to check it out!

More Magical Drop, finally 1CC'ed the arcade version as High Priestess. Want to do the same with the Super Famicom version, but for some reason, that version is even harder.

Presently diving into the original Devil May Cry trilogy on Switch, and my recent Steam activity has been pretty aimless and random. Some Halo here, Castlevania Lords of Shadow there, some Bloodstained, Destiny 2... the works.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

Nope, it's official! I think the 20th anniversary of the original OVA is coming up, so they commissioned Team Ladybug to make a game in celebration. Check it out on steam!

Downloading Doom Eternal. I thought the previous Doom was brilliant, cant wait play the new one later this afternoon.
I beat Wallachia on easy, may try to get through it on normal this weekend.

Oh man, I couldn't follow you down that path. The last game gave me motion sickness, and I don't get motion sickness easily. That camera was a nightmare for me.

Enjoy your game, sturdy comrade! May your stomach be iron, and your chainsaw always fueled!

Doom 2016 was already really fast paced, Doom Eternal is somehow even more so, by a significant amount. If the last game gave you motion sickness don't come anywhere near Doom Eternal.

It's a great sequel, better than simply giving us more of the same, but I definitely like 2016 more. The gameplay system in Doom Eternal is more varied, but it doesn't feel as tightly designed. There are more mechanics to worry about than before, and coupled with the crazy fast new gameplay speed, it feels a little too frantic and scattered. Still, I prefer that the developers experimented with these changes as opposed to playing it safe and sticking too closely to the formula of the old game. Not as good as 2016 imo, but still a must play if you liked 2016.

Red Dead Redemption 2. But after having to delete my save file twice that I put a three digit hour amount into, I probably will never pick it up again. Was far too bug-riddled and luck-based to be enjoyable anyhow. A good story can't save a game with abyssmal gameplay. I just persevered to see the story, but it was ultimately not worth it at all. Felt like work, rather than fun.

I played the first six hours before I decided to quit. I felt like I barely did anything interesting in that time span. I don't know if my tastes have changed since the previous RDR, but I actually played all the way through that game. I don't remember RDR 1 having such a slow start.

Playing this on Ultra Violence, and it's quite a bit tougher than the last one. It definitely separates itself from the last game, which could be good or bad.
