PC Doom


UMBWGMG (Unidentified Human Being.)
Doom 1 and 2 are great games, and are better than almost all modern FPS shooters, like COD and BF3.
Why do I think this? Because it's hard, you have to use your resources wisely. Instead of Sub Machine gunning every single person, sniping some guy in the head from 50 metres away, you have to use the shotgun and blast your way through hundreds of monsters, and then by the fiftieth monster, your ammo is no more. When your ammo is no more, you can't go to an ememy and get their gun. You have to either change gun, or pick up more of that ammo type (items on the ground, shotgunners). Also, you don't start off with the shotgun, you start off with a pistol. You go around, trying to find secrets, getting their items. Sometimes it's something epic, like full health, or sometimes it's a better gun. Doom is a a 2.5D game, and the game won't have their hand on your back. Instead, it puts you right there on the spot, turn the corner... BAM, fire coming at you, or a machine gunner starts shooting, killing your ass. There are no checkpoints, so when you die, you die. You restart the mission EVEN if you got to the end.

This game is such a joy, because if you use the best weapon too much, you'll lose your ammo. There are a total of 8 weapons in the game. And 6 of them you find,
1. Your pistol. Your have your trusty pistol for a shortwhile, but if your playing on easy, all the way.
2. Your fists, haha. Try punching a machine gunner to death in COD... Oh wait, you CAN'T!
Those are the two guns you have.
3. Shotgun, if your playing on harder diffuculties, you kill two shotgunners and get the shotgun on the first map.
4. The Machine Gun, you get this later on in the game and uses the same ammunition as a pistol, it deals the same amount of damage as the pistol, but it's automatic.
5. The Rocket, you don't get much ammunition.. But... IT'S FUCKING FUNNY TO SEE THE END RESULT!
6. The Whassamacallit. This is the name of a gun I don't know, it's automatic, deals alot of damage, but you don't find much ammunition for it.
7. The BFG. Stands for 'The Big Fucking Gun,' as you may imagine.... It's big. It will kill any monster on impack, and deal damage to those around it. It's the best and biggest gun in the game, but it takes a lot of ammunition... You only use it on bosses.
8. The Chainsaw... Upgrade to teh fists... but isn't it funny to see something not being able to shoot, and having a spasm?

As you can see, I really love this game... CoD is OK, but... it's too easy.
There are two bosses in the game, as well as harder creeps. The BFG doesn't kill everything in one hit, but it does severe damage to anything. It also kills those shotgunners and pistolmen in one hit, but it's expensive to use.

You might be left with one question: "This is singleplayer, it's shit!" Just... just wait... It's not only singleplayer, it's Multiplayer too. Multiplayer is a bit easier, except when you die... You lose everything. Even the BFG... Goodluck getting that one back! But, Multiplayer is a bit hard to set up.
As you may have been able to tell, I fucking love this game. It's not easy, and no game should ever be easy. You have to use the keyboard to play, but you can also get mods to let you use the mouse and WASD, it takes longer to set up though.
Overall enjoyment: High. This is something you'd play when you have time to spare, say 10-20 minutes. You could get 2--8 maps done.

    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.

    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
