View Full Version : A race to 200!
June 8th, 2000, 03:27 PM
I don't know if this forum does this sort of stuff,(you may flame me for this) but here goes...
Lets have a race to 200 posts, if you get to 200 first you are the winner http://www.NEWDOOM.com/ubb/smile.gif

Let's not. No offense, but I think that's a pretty stupid idea. I've never heard of anything like it either...
Besides, it just annoys everyone else, if they care anyway.

Yeah ok, could one of the mods delete this topic.
June 8th, 2000, 04:32 PM
No, don't do that! I'd lose two posts hehe :)
I'm trying to post as much as possible, without just babbling away though...it's ALL relevant stuff and I post stuff the way I want Carmack himself to see it and inspire him.
Which reminds me, John I haven't seen you on ICQ lately!! Where've ya been? :)

Let me guess, you just don't want to be a Soldier-with-a-pop-gun anymore, right?
June 9th, 2000, 01:59 AM
Well, considering a it is a toy and is not even designed to hurt anybody, yes, I don't want to be a soldier with a pop gun :)
You should change your title, too. I mean...I don't think Romero's head even has any teeth in it! And it looks pretty beat up. You have a worse title than us pop-gunners do :)

This should be in the rants section anyway...

Oh, and being called Romero's head on a stake really does sound rubbish...how about spiderdemon?
June 9th, 2000, 10:55 AM
Romero's head on a stake was the big, 'final boss' in Doom II! It was the secret mastermind spawning all of demons and monsters from hell. True, he was powerless on his own, but the idea was that he was the final, final boss. Get to him and the game's won.
What are the 4 titles we should have here, then, in your opinions ?
Not that we'll use them, as we think these are pretty amusing, but just out of curiosity.
Please note, there are 2 titles for registered users (beginner and regular), and 2 titles for staff members (moderator and administrator).
Hope this helps,
More to come!

Of course I remember that! How could I forget? http://www.NEWDOOM.com/ubb/wink.gif

You thought we didn't know that wmull? haha, you're so wrong :)
Romero's head was just an easter egg; you can only see it by cheating. In fact the whole thing was originally an inside joke played inside id. You can still kill the spawner in the icon of Sin, you know, just shoot two or three rockets into the open space in his head.
So technically the toughest boss is the Cyberdemon, because the icon of Sin has no true power...he let's his slaves do all the dirty work for him! Let's hope id brings Sin in the flesh (or bone as the case may be) into new Doom! THEN he'll be the greatest boss of all...
Sin can step on the cyberdemon, but it tickles his feet. :)

I was so dissapointed when I saw sin at the end of doom2. It was such a crap boss. A goats face on a wall...woopeedoo!
June 9th, 2000, 12:51 PM
Of course the end boss in Doom II was an easter egg . . . I mean it's Romero's head on a stick! http://www.NEWDOOM.com/ubb/wink.gif
And a weak final boss is how it's done at id, traditionally. Just take the end boss in Quake1 for example http://www.NEWDOOM.com/ubb/smile.gif
More to come!

That wasn't an end boss, that was just four skanky spider-thingies whatever they are called that I forget.
No no no! Romero's head ISN'T Doom2's boss! The boss was literally the Icon of Sin. You aren't meant to see Romero's head at all, but it doesn't harm you to take a look. Unless you just blew up the icon and don't have god mode, then approaching it would do a bit of damage.

Yeah, he's right.
Listen to him!
June 9th, 2000, 01:15 PM
Argh!!! You're posting just to get more posts in, aren't you Ralph!!!! Well not me, and look where I am, MUAHAHAHA!!! Oh wait yes I am hehe.
But I'm not trying :) I just have so many ideas for Doom building up inside me for the past six years, they are falling out of me like rocket fuel from a masturbating cyberdemon. That's right, rocket fuel :)
June 9th, 2000, 11:47 PM
NO! That post wasn't just to get another post!!!
I just wanted people to understand that you're right about the sin thing...thats all. http://www.NEWDOOM.com/ubb/wink.gif
I want bother trying to catch up with you as your posting all the time!!
June 10th, 2000, 12:48 PM
Okay. Because I AM right. I always am :)
Anyway, I only post so much is because I really, really hate being a newbie :)
June 19th, 2000, 04:33 PM
You guys gotta look at it this way, if you want id to take notice of your posts, then for gods sake, be creative. you could have 160 sh**** posts, or you could have one post that catches the eye and might be taken into account at id. this isn't a race. i would be overjoyed if just one minute idea of mine made its way into the game...man that would be awsome!
August 1st, 2000, 09:24 AM
And Ralph toddles in last!!
This is one of those times where you look back (only two months back? heh) at topics like these and laugh. 160 posts? HAHAHA...
