    I guess I'm out-voted there! But it's cool. I haven't seen that film and it sounds decent enough to me.

    Haha, where's your wife up to on FFVIII anyway?

    She is saved on the world map just outside the Galbadian Missile Base, a minute or two after D-District Prison.

    That missile base has the coolest music. She might have a difficult time with the boss there.

    Yeah, i was dancing to the music in the living room as she made her way through. The boss isn't too terrible (she will probably be low on time though), but i wonder how she will take it when she thinks that half of her party has died.

    You fellas up for a get together this weekend? I got nothing going on so I'm down if you folks are. This may be a bit early but next Saturday is my birthday so, to celebrate, I propose we play some classic Doom co-op and then we can even check out that live action Doom movie afterwards. A fitting way to celebrate if I do say so myself.

    I might be able to on this Friday, Saturday I am setting aside to perhaps work with a translator on some of the OLS manga/concept art. There were extra pages that Mantis & I chose to skip on our first pass so that the main story could be released sooner, but the further I go with these extra pages the more important they seem. Next Saturday i'm out of state and will only return around midnight. I guess I could join you guys if you are still playing anything at that time.

    I didn't know that the first Doom game had co-op? I assume by "classic" you mean the first DOS game? I need some explanation.

    The first games have had many Windows ports because the source code was made available, so people have created their own versions of the Doom engine. These are referred to as "source ports". Some of them are really good. Many provide options for playing Doom levels co-operatively, but the best way in addition to that would be to get a Doom mod with optimised co-op play, which are typically simple "WAD" files. It's quite easy to set up.

    I will be away to visit my visit my family (and no doubt endure hours of my nephew talking about Breath of the Wild ) on Saturday, so I guess that works for us? I'll be free to game or watch something on Friday or Sunday, so if both you and Starwind can do either let's go ahead with that. A Boomer Doomer pre-birthday get-together sounds good to me! Prepare the Monster Zero Ultra.

    As for the "live action Doom movie", oh boy, you mean with The Rock?

    Yeah, there's a bunch of sourceports out there. I'm trying to remember what Mantis and I used when we did co-op. I wanna say it was either GZDoom or Zandronum. But yeah, Zemekis, both are easy to get and install. You just need to get a copy of The Ultimate Doom and Doom 2 to run it.

    I never seen the Doom movie in it's entirety. I just know that they just made the monsters generic mutants instead of demons. That's taking away a fundamental part of the game's appeal. Seriously, Doom should be easy to adapt into a movie. Just make it Evil Dead 2 meets Commando and it's golden. I mean Hollywood can't be that stupid. I'm sure they're not dumb enough to make a Max Payne movie that removes the moody, noir story telling and John Woo gunplay to make it a generic action mov...

    Guys, I'm sorry to say I have a pretty bad fever today so for the time being you should go along without me. Plus, you both have Doom setup and I do not think my fever brain is gonna like that old-school 3D today. I will message you guys on Steam or Mantis via Skype if I do feel well enough to join. I don't have a plan for Sunday just yet, so maybe that's better for stuff i'm gonna join. Go ahead tonight if you guys are locked and loaded.

    I'm not certain which port we used either. Zandronum is what I always used but we might have gone for something else. Heh, the monsters weren't that great in Doom 3, were they? I didn't play that one much. It got a bit boring. Half-Life 2 was the shit in those days. (Still hasn't aged that much.) I never watched the Max Payne film. I treasure the original (the sequel wasn't great but not bad) game and don't want that tarnished by a terrible adaptation.

    That's understandable, Zem. You should take it easy. To be honest I don't think you should make plans for the entire weekend if you have a bad bug. Maybe we'll get a chance to do something the weekend after when you're better.
