Been messing around with other games the past two days. There's more on my flickr, but no pressure.

I've been getting into video game photography over the last four or five months... No training or education, just what I think looks nice. I like to think I've improved a bit! If you're interested in this kind of thing, I've got a flickr over here that will hopefully satisfy your eye parts.

Is the soundtrack the sort that I can head-bang to it in the car, or did they go the Hans Zimmer/Jerry Goldsmith bombastic movie route?

The soundtrack is absolutely killer.

@baronsamedi: It's starting to sound a whole lot like some of the music in this game and that's really not helping.

The best thing about this new Doom game is it is entirely self aware of just how stupid it is. It leans hard and heavy on the bullshit in the setting and story because why not, man.

"we went to mars to harness raw hell juice to solve our energy crisis. the giant corporation that gets everything done is run entirely by out and proud devil worshippers. if you wanna move past unpaid intern or sanitation worker you have to get a pentagram tattoo. our slogan is literally ‘the road to hell is paved by the energy source we have a monopoly on’. fuck it"

"also their president is a robot. bye"

I played this game for six hours with no breaks. This game is INCREDIBLE. The pace of combat and the feedback on the weapons is blowing me away. I had watched the trailers and streams before release and I thought it looked somewhere around "pretty okay" but the feeling of playing it myself is just on a totally different level. My body and mind are saying "you're exhausted, get some sleep" but my heart is repeating PLAY MORE DOOM over and over without waiting for it to properly loop. it just keeps layering. it sounds totally incomprehensible and it's incredibly loud. please help me

I just started playing this game again after a really long time away from it and I'd be interested in being reinvited to the clan, if that's okay...? My in game name is Artemesia.

Sexist garbage is pretty common no matter what form of media you're exploring, and it's not really your place to decide what is or isn't degrading to women. Trying to say it's "childish" or "fussing over nothing" and somehow not valid because the game isn't even out yet is a really bad attempt on your part to silence discussion and take the validity of people's feelings and opinions away.

It took you two sentences to contradict yourself.

I dunno if you're aware, but snakes don't actually have boobs! Reptiles don't need 'em! There's literally zero reason for that snake to have titties other than "we want to let you know they're girls and we don't have any other ways to tell you that other than long hair, eyelashes and titties so we settled for titties"

Did you miss the entire post where I state the reason?

Your hypothetical reason, one that isn't substantiated by Word of God, so trying to yell at me like you're presenting a fact that I just ignored is uncalled for. You're also doing the thing known as "The Thermian Argument."

It's not a contradiction; if you aren't a woman, you don't get to dictate how it makes women feel to be represented in this way or tell them they're overreacting. Trying to tell people they're acting like children because they have feelings about something that does not affect you at all is what shuts discussions down and tries to tell them their opinions aren't valid.

You make some good points, I am interested if that gets somehow used in the story. I heard from an streamer invited to play the game early that the snake is actually the new form of the thin man. Because now they don't longer have to disguise themselves as human. The snake and the Thin man have the same attacks: spit poison and jump around the map, but the snake has some new moves.

Also the fact that there are people making a fuss about unnecessarily sexualized units in >>> XCOM2<<< is just sad beyond words. How childish is it that the first thing some people talk about is the fact that an alien snake soldier might have breast armor. And of course this happens before most people have played it, because all we need for a fully formed opinion is 1 screenshot.

That could all sound more hostile than it is meant, but i get so tired off all these internet fuss about nothing moments. And snake boobs and floater abs seem like a new low.
