DooM Mod review- Strange Aeons

That which is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons, even death may die

Strange Aeons is a mod for doom which puts you in the place of the Traveler, a Miskatonic University researcher who has recently lost his son David in a strange accident. To cope with his loss, the Traveler takes solace in his work, dedicating all his time to the translating of the Kadath Tablets, arcane relics which appear to have a connection to the mysterious “Dreamlands”. One day, while working, he gets a vision of his son alive in a utopian world. This pushes him to embark on a dream quest, traveling across the cosmos in an attempt to be with his son. The mod has 5 episodes, the last one being a spin off of sorts, where he must stop his nephew Daniel from being used by cultists to awaken Cthulhu. The first chapter, The Shattered City, takes the Traveler through ruins of a once-great civilization now dominated by warlike creatures. The overall setting of this chapter is as you would expect, mostly broken down buildings and ruins. Also, the ground is floating. In little islands. This helps create this atmosphere of it just feeling… wrong. This mod is not a horror mod in the traditional sense, but it creates this uneasy atmosphere that makes it do perfectly as an homage to the source material. The second chapter, The Stagnant Fortress, is a foreboding monument to technology. The place is heavily industrialized, with conveyor belts and gears and waste materials all over the place. The long, dark hallways of the fortress create this overall sense of being completely, utterly, and helplessly alone. The third chapter, The Land that time Forgot, is a prehistoric world which has a vaguely Egyptian-Aztec theme to it. This third chapter has a similar feel to the first, except this part has a lot of just mind-bending level design. You go down a hallway that loops back but somehow enters into a completely different area. You head back through a level and try to get to a door you used to enter the place and suddenly its not there anymore. The fourth chapter, The Plateau of Leng, is a cold, barren wasteland on the Moon. The population of which is giant spiders and the Men of Leng. Now the fifth chapter, Out of the Aeons, takes place in the Underworld, a dark place with most of the light coming from small holes in the surface world above.

The mod does add some new weaponry, such as the AK-47, which replaces the Chaingun and has a drastically higher rate of fire but otherwise is identical in terms of damage, and the Scepter of Souls, which replaces your pistol and acts like a slightly longer range chainsaw that also requires no ammo. There is also a final, secret weapon, but I will leave that one to be found by you guys.

All in all, go play this mod right. now. Its an amazing experience, and I find myself revisiting it regularly. A word of warning, it can be a bit harsh, but I was playing it on Ultra-Violence, so it might just be because I was playing on a harder difficulty. So now you’re done reading this, go play it already!

A short Doom Rant

So as you might guess, I like the game series “DooM”. I have played through every installment, and done some really tough challenges and pretty much mastered the originals. And out of all of the games, the one enemy I would pick to be deleted out of the game series permanently is the face of pure pain and children’s tears, the Arch-Vile. This thing is STUPID. It can hit you with its attack from anywhere on the map, as long as it can see you. IT DEALS A WHOLE 90 DAMAGE. THAT IS PRETTY MUCH ALL YOUR HEALTH. As a bonus, you get tossed up in the air if you do somehow survive, so everything else can take a potshot. And it has a metric ton of health. Oh, and did I mention it can REVIVE DEAD ENEMIES? ANY DEAD ENEMY, EXCEPTING BOSSES? Yeah, where is the downside? I am actually reading the wiki page on it and seeing if out of my probably thousands of hours of experience I missed something about them. Also apparently they are THE fastest enemy in the game excepting a charging lost soul. Apparently they can be hurt by their own attack… that isn’t that powerful of a weakness. Enemies also apparently will never fight one even when provoked because it is hard coded for them to ignore being damaged by one? So lemme get this straight. An enemy that is fast, has a ton of health, can hit you with an extremely damaging attack, can hit you as long as he sees you, can revive fallen foes, and is IMMUNE to monster infighting, but hey, it takes damage from its own attack! Seems pretty balanced to me, said no one ever. I always HATE hearing them on maps, as I know there is a walking ammo drain right there, that can really screw me over if I let it live for more than a second. Seriously, who thought this was a legit idea that was good? It makes the game painful to play as it just undoes your work. In terms of pure power, this thing is on par with bosses, but the level designers use them in what feels like every other level. Yeah I know, its *hell* but seriously? At least their death animation is satisfying, getting to hear their death gurgles as their body collapses in on itself. Anyway, just wanted to rant a bit. See you guys next time!

Aaaannd they are back….

So I did a post on the spambots, and the more hilarious examples of them, and I figured that was a one off thing. THERE ARE MORE, AND THEY ARE FUNNY. I’m saving the one I got an E-Mail notification for last, as it motivated me to write this up, and go through them all.
ALSO BEFORE WE GET INTO IT, FINALLY A PERSON! SOMEONES READING THIS! I DON’T KNOW WHY!

I keep listening to the news update lecture about receiving boundless online grant applications so I have been looking around for the top site to get one. Could you advise me please, where could i acquire some? ebffgeddfffedfef
Why exactly do there exist spambots that are blatantly spambots? Does this really fool people? I mean the run-on sentences and random letters at the end kinda are red flags in my opinion….

You know the one where the guy points his phone at a local restaurant and reviews his friends have
left pop up. There’s nothing more frustrating to the viewer (and the potential buyer) than seeing a
video of a once in a lifetime event and hearing the person filming saying
nothing but “Oh my God” over and over again. If
you are looking for a way to rid yourself of all of life.
So, several points. 1. I do not know this ad, and 2. that last sentence. It is a fragment, and what exactly do you mean by “looking for a way to rid yourself of all life”? We talking suicide? If that’s it, remember cut wrists horizontally for attention, and vertical for results. (I should not be consulted for advice)

はじめまして!通りがかりの者で急のコメントで失礼します。身体のあちこちの黒ずみってツライですよね、ほんとに。わたしも正直だいぶ耐えに耐えましたが、あの美白クリーム買ってから良さげになりましたよ。(Translation:
Nice to meet you! I’m sorry for being a passer and rushing with a sharp comment. The darkening around the body is trivial, is not it? I also endured tolerance quite honestly, but I bought that whitening cream well.)
So, this one I am gonna ignore the grammatical stuff like “being a passer and rushing with a sharp comment” as just the language divide, as I did just go copy paste into Google Translate, but what exactly are you selling here? “whitening cream”? Like for baggy eyes or something?

I always emailed this blog post page to all my associates, as
if like to read it next my contacts will too.
This one is generic, and several hundred spam my posts. The name of the poster, on the other hand….
“How to learn colors number surprise eggs toy for kids m&m chocolate” is arguably not generic.

If you are playing in another town and want vampires to come into your town (if
the ‘Late Night” expansion is installed) you’ll need to turn on the story progression for at least a couple of days to get both vampires and celebrities in your town. Nicely, in circumstance you in actuality are like most other purchasers of women’s Harley Davidson boots, you would would would instead preserve them for so extended as probable. However, with so many designer bags available to choose from, how can anyone choose the most popular and most valuable one.
What… the… What are you talking about? You went from some thing about vampires and video game expansions to Harley Davidson women’s boots, and designer bags. (EDIT: I googled the “late night expansion” and found out its a Sims 3 thing. It adds vampires and a “nightlife” to your game.

HB
OK.

Salman Khan and Asin are coming together in this movie after their last movie London Dreams.
Their courtship may have been short, but it is still made very believable
by de la Baume’s ability to effortlessly draw people to her as
Djuna. Movie previews could be witnessed in a genuine manner because of which you get to realize all those features that are necessary for maintaining perfect quality standards
in an exceptional manner.
Good for them… but what does this have to do with me having internet issues at a hotel and DooM?

Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve visited this site before but after browsing through
a few of the posts I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely pleased I discovered it
and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!
Im dead. not because of the comment, but because someone named their bot “videos porno de republica dominicana en porno.com .do”. Just take that in. SOMEONE LITERALLY NAMED IT THAT AND THOUGHT IT OK.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about
this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit,
but other than that, this is great blog. An excellent read.
I’ll definitely be back
(Immediately followed by this)
Its like you read my mind! You seem to grasp so much about this, such as you
wrote the guide in it or something. I think that you could do with some %
to pressure the message home a little bit, however instead of that, this is excellent blog.
A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
Seems familiar, like I just read this…. nah its just me.

What i do not understood is in truth how you are now not really a lot more
well-liked than you might be right now. You are very intelligent.
You recognize therefore significantly in terms of this matter, produced me
individually believe it from so many numerous angles.
Its like women and men aren’t interested until it is one thing to do with Lady gaga!
Your individual stuffs excellent. At all times deal with it
up!
Being flattered by bots is still being praised. I accept this glorious praise and bestow upon you more posts.

And now for the one thing that showed up in my email and caused this whole thing.
I got an E-Mail notifying me of comments, and the first one listed was, and I quote,
“Hello! viagra from india”. Just that. NOTHING ELSE. This is probably not that funny, thinking about it now…. whatever. It still made me laugh. Not something you expect to see in ones mailbox.
Anyway, I think that sums it up. Cya next time, year, or whenever I remember this blog exists.

Spambot revenge! The entrapment of the E-Mail

So a (long) time ago, I did a post discussing the rather amusing spambots that kept commenting on my blog. I had thought them vanquished by sheer hours of clicking “delete” over and over and over and over and over and over and over. So today I decided to go through my email. Personally, I enjoy cleaning my email, which is apparently strange. So anyway, I was cleaning the emails, and was browsing titles. Not many really stood out, most were generic “buy this” or “shocking newz”. But…. some were rather odd.

“legofan sip apple cider and get a flat-stomach next week” Um….. ok..? I don’t really know what to say to this. NEXT!

“(HELLO?) Can you send an email?” Yes, I can send email. Next question, please

“legofan drinking apple cider with make your stomach-flat” This guy again? Also, WILL, not with.

“3 things Jesus said about how to cure disease” No comment.

“Discover the fountain of youth” Ok. NEW GOAL EVERYONE!

“PUBLIC SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENT- Someone in your life could be dangerous!” Yeah. ME. I AM THE DOOM SLAYER, THE END OF DEMONS.

“Michael, Unleash Your Buying Potential Today!” Two Things: I Hate When People Capitalize Every Word In A Sentence, And 2: Why So Dramatic?

“Lifehack — How to walk into a Subway and get free subs.” But what if I want pizza? Or chips?

“Carry a pen that doubles as a tactical defense weapon” (so I was chatting with my friend Spek, and his response was) “Pens are already Tactical Defense weapons, have you seen pen injuries? I once made a pen shoot out its tip in the middle of class”

“I also may support you to have fun” Thank you for potentially supporting me on my endeavors of having fun.

“I’m a woman and I’m losing my hair. What can I do about it?” Hmm… Good thing you contacted me, the leading expert on hair loss and kicking demonic ass. I prescribe 3-4 hours of DooM with random intervals of Chuck Norris motivational quotes.

“Amanda wants to chat” Why is Mom emailing me about this? I have a phone. (not from my mom btw, was joke about how they are same name)

Well, that was interesting. Off to go play games.

ADVENTURES OF ADMINING (yes I know that is not a word shut up it is now)

So it has been a while, hasn’t it? Well, I can explain it very easily- I’m terrible at being consistent. Also I had a glitch with the login that kept saying my password was wrong and making me wait 10 minutes to retry, which was too long for my attention span, so I just forgot. I am the WORST at this. So I finally got around to fixing it, and I’ll try to keep a steady schedule. So with that outta the way, I have funny anecdotes from my “job”, which is being an administrator of a Team Fortress 2 server. Not much happens, so when anything happens, its noteworthy. But anyway, one day me and my friends were hanging out, chatting and joking and slapping the hell outta each other with fish, when some random guy joined. Now this wasn’t odd, people connect all the time, but he had the most uncannily accurate aim. This aroused my suspicions, and so I decided to take a closer look. As it turns out, he was not only cheating, but blatantly. I tested this by using the Cloak and Dagger invis watch for spy, which allows me to remain fully invisible while its active, at the cost of movement speed, and stood in the most out of the ordinary spots that NOBODY would be in. What did he do? Locked right on and BOOM. Headshot. Obviously cheating, I told him to stop cheating before I took action. He dared me to try to do anything. Issue is, I couldn’t do anything at that point, because I was only an apprentice admin, and apprentices aren’t able to issue a ban, and all the senior admins were offline or in a different game. So I had the issue of how do I get rid of him without the ability to ban him? So my friend Winter (another apprentice admin) decided to duel him as sniper to prove his ego, and I recorded the view of the cheater. After about 15 minutes of capturing evidence, I finally had an idea of how to get rid of him. A long while back, I got banned by the automatic chat filter for typing into the chat “Get good, Get LMAOBOX” (a common hack, if you use the free version you spam chat with that bind, so servers have filters to ban people who use that in chat). I got unbanned because it was a misunderstanding on the automatic filter’s part, but I asked him to type that in chat. Best part is, he did. And we had woken up a manager at like 11:30 to join for NO REASON, and me and Winter had handled it. The manager wasn’t even mad, he was actually rather impressed at our ingenuity. And for the next few days weeks months, I told people this story. Whew, I hope you liked reading this, as I said before, I will try to get a regular setup going. See y’all next time!

The Siege of the Spam: Battle against Bots

So, I get a lot of spambots on this site, and I go through EVERY comment and decide whether or not it’s spam. Occasionally, I get amazingly hilarious buggy bots. Here are a few I have encountered.

Nordstrom not long ago served a two-game postponement, interruption after your dog illegally reach the Az Coyotes’ Oliver Ekman-Larsson inside the forums while in the closing minute in the 3rd period in the gameplay on Goal fjorton. Nordstrom gained a problem in the game as well as was revoked these kinds of video game. Ekman-Larsson has been injured to the participate in and had for you to get away from, nevertheless he go back in the Coyotes’ next match.

i have a brother that is autistic and we love him so much and gave all of our support on him.(ON him, you say?)

Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot! (ohhhhh the utter irony of this. A spambot asking for anti-spambot stuff. Actually, this makes sense if the guy who made it is trying to get around them.)

I used to be able to find good information from your blog posts. (Really? Now they are insulting me?)

It’s simple to get sucked into this massive online world of penguin secret agents. (Ummmmm……. Ok. Good for you, I suppose.)

I leave you to your DOOM, MORTALS.

Day 14: Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse. Also spells of Create Pancake, and Eating a human ice cream.(Buffalo to Lusk)

Today we drove through a ton of cool things! Firstly, the hotel we stayed at had a MAGIC machine of PANCAKES. Literal magic. Push a button, wait a minute, then it spits out pancakes onto your plate! After the wonder of that, we got on the road. The drive was nice, but it was mainly flat. And slightly hilly. Mostly flat, though. We drove through Deadwood, which is where Wild Bill Hickok met his fate. Also, apparently there was some kind of motorcycle convention going on, as all the parking was FLOODED with motorcycles and bikers. Anyway, after that, we drove on down to Mt. Rushmore, and walked around there some. After that, we drove a short distance to Crazy Horse Monument. It was really cool to see it and be shown how much progress has been made on it. Anyhoo, time for me to sign off, and give you tons more photos. Gonna be home soon!

Supa-Dupa Double-Trouble Blog Post!!! aka. Thank goodness for og DooM. BEST STRESS RELIEF EVER

Blog day 12: LOOOONNGGG DRIVE (Edmonds to Missoula)

Today we drove a long way. We were a bit behind, so we didn’t do much other than driving. We got to see the effects of coastal mountains, which is basically a wall to weather. It was all cloudy and chilly, and then we drove through a pass, and then suddenly everything was clear and pleasant. It was cool. It was also REALLY windy, and it shook the car. Anyway, when we finally got to our hotel, the worst thing happened. My laptop failed to locate the wifi. So I get to write ANOTHER post in Word. Meh

Blog day 13: The revenge of the wifi… (Missoula to Buffalo)

Today we drove from Missoula to Buffalo, Wyoming. Today was another long drive, but at the end of the day we stopped at the monument at Little Big Horn. It was really sobering to realize that it happened so recently, and yet it feels so far away. My dad was 3 years old when they got the survivors back after 50 years. The park also has small tombstones where the bodies were found, and it really helps to demonstrate how the battle played out. After that, we drove on to Buffalo, and got to our hotel after a bit of searching. I also found out why my internet was not working. My laptop is ancient, and has a CD drive, and many other relics of technology (yes, I just called a CD a relic of technology. I REMEMBER WHEN IT WAS NEW). One of these many relics is an on-off switch for the wifi antenna, which had somehow gotten turned on at some point. Anyway, I turned it on, and guess what? THE HOTEL WIFI is now the culprit. I guess y’all are gonna get more multi-day posts.

 

Also, if you are wondering where pictures be on some of these posts, my sibling might make a slideshow and I will upload it to here when it is done. If it gets done.

Day 9+10+11: (Newport to Forks to Edmonds) Pagan Pancakes, Blessed Cheesemaker Assassins, and Fifty Shades of Green.

 

Ok, I did not have internet access for 2 days, so I am writing this in word until I can get it uploaded.

Day 10: Cheese, Grommit!

Today we got up early, went to eat breakfast with my parent’s friend again at the Pig ‘n’ Pancake (which my sister misheard as the Pagan Pancake, which brought to mind images of the nice little old lady type of person who secretly is a Satanist). After breakfast, we started our LONG drive to Washington. On the way, we stopped at Tillamook Cheese Factory. It was really cool, and we got some souvenirs. One of which was a new travel mug for my sister, which had an old logo on it said “Tillamook Cheesemaker Assn.” on it. She commented that every time that she saw “assn.”, her first thought was that it meant “assassin” instead of “association”. So therein we started a conversation about Cheesemaker Assassins.   Not much else happened on the way, but after driving on a scarily long bridge, we finally crossed the state border. At the rest stop in Dismal Nitch, which has one of the best names I have seen for anything, we looked out into the nearby river and saw OTTERS! They were quite amusing, and I got some photos and videos of them. After that, we drove on and eventually got to our stop for the night. The place is cool. In the bathroom, the shower controls are on the outside of the shower. Above it reads a small note: “Yep, the shower controls are on the outside. We don’t know why.”

 

Day 11: Fifty Shades of Green

Today, we did a couple of hiking trails in the Olympic National Park. It was amazing, and perfect weather to go out and do things in. I got many a good photo, and spoiler alert: Trees. We are also in the area that Twilight was set in, and you would not BELIEVE how much they are playing it. Actually, y’all might be able to, it is basically normal types of milking. Anyway, we were discussing how badly Twilight had described this kind of terrain, and I commented on the fact that Fifty Shades of Grey was originally a Twilight Fan Fiction. Then my sister remarked on how the human eye can see many different shades of green, the most out of any color, and I just put the two together. After we stopped laughing enough to continue hiking, we finished the trail, and went home. We ate at a great side-of-the-road burger place, and got munchies for the trip ahead.

Images for the two days

Day 12: Furthest Northwest and ferries.

Today we pushed onwards, which means starting to head home. We are taking a different route than the way we came though, so more adventures abound. Today we took a small detour to go to the furthest northwest point of the continental United States. It was fun, and on the way out, we stopped at a museum that was about the Indian tribe that lives there and how they excavated it. It was really interesting, but we were then behind on our schedule, so we changed our plans somewhat. We still took a ferry across a river, which was really cool, and are now staying in Edmonds. I got plenty of photos of the northwest coast, and a video of the ferry.

Day 8: BEACH & OCEAN (Still in Newport)

Today we met up with an old friend of my parent’s, and walked around on a beach. I did not take my camera, but I will upload my photos and videos of Crater Lake instead. On the beach, I found many shells and jellyfish and a part of a sand dollar and jellyfish and little crab-like things and jellyfish and seaweed and I think a few jellyfish. It was REALLY windy on the beach. The wind was so strong, I could lean backwards into it and not fall down. After that, we went back to the apartment. Just beat Misty with a MAGIKARP. Anyway, as promised, here are my photos from Crater Lake.
