    Doom - 25 years old today

    First played Doom in college when doing my A levels. Wally the computer science lecturer had installed it on one of the PCs in the lab. As a console gamer at the time I remember being blown away, the speed! The atmosphere! Bought a PC for uni in 94 and borrowed the disks off a mate (no copy protection) and played the fucker to death. Best episode for me was definitely the first. Spent the 1st year of uni deathmatching and even entered the national doom competition PC Zone held. (Didn't do well as I used cursor keys, changed to wsad and mouse after getting my ass kicked) . There were a lot of Doom clones back then, but none of them looked as good as or played as well as the daddy, until duke3d that is.
  4. I saw this today, as a huge fan of the original I felt compelled to do so. My first thought was 'Why is it so dark?' The original was definitely a case of style over substance with an ending which just seemed to be an afterthought. The new one definitely had a better story but lacked the haunting atmosphere that made the original so great. I suppose the ideal Suspiria would be a combination of the both. If I had to choose though, I'd choose the original. The new one just wasn't scary....

    Sleaziest film ever made

    Overlord

    My thoughts exactly. It started off fantastically well, the sequence in the plane was brilliant. But it never lived up to its premise of 'Nazi Zombies' and was rather subdued. Just give me the balls to the wall zombie schlockfest the trailers implied and not a Saving Private Ryan retread. Don't think it's going to do well either there were only 2 people at the screening I was in.

    The Great British Bake Off

    I like Rahul, prior to the last two weeks he's been the most consistent baker. Looks woefully short of confidence now though. Still think he'll sneak it with Kim Joy coming second.

    Super Nintendo Appreciation Thread

    The Addams family will always be infamous in my house, my brothers and I had been saving for ages for Mario Kart, when we had enough cash we went to town to buy it, unfortunately it sold out everywhere and not wanting to come back empty handed we settled on this. Never did own a copy of SMK, although we did rinse the game as everybody else seemed to have it at the time and no one had Addams family

    Hereditary

    Loved this. But then again I am a sucker for diabolical conspiracy thrillers. Reminded me a lot of Rosemary's Baby.
  11. Cheers chaps. Decided to check this out based on this thread. It's great, getting Lost vibes, which is no had thing. Also like the fact each episode is only 20 minutes or so, it means I can binge on them without being knackered in the morning

    Your retro youtube videos

    I bought HOTD on Japanese import with black lightgun when it first came out. Probably the most disappointed I've ever been. And this is from someone who loved the original iteration of Daytona

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Guardian gave it a very positive review. Looking forward to it.

    Game On - "Tea Martin"

    Neil Stuke was a better Matthew than Chaplin. Chaplin didn't make sense, far too good looking to be considered a loser struggling to get a shag. The writing was better in the 1st season though, don't really remember what happened after that. Where does the time go? I was in uni when it came out now I'm middle aged.
