Clearly fact that I managed to beat Aldrich with my current character in DSIII on first try is worthy of small celebration.

Cool. I actually just picked up Majora's Mask 3D. It's only $20 now.

Even though im looking forward to it, Cyberpunk 2077 is probably going to be one of the most overrated and over hyped games in ages

Random question time. Does GOG sell a copy of DOOM (the 1990's original) and if they do does any of the money go to the people who made the game?
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

They sell The Ultimate Doom and Final Doom + Doom 2. I don't know, my guess is that the money goes to modern Id?

Not a bad company tbh constering how Doom 2016 did.

If you’re going to get any of the original Dooms, I’d recommend getting ZDOOM or a similar source port, because they’re kinda hard to play otherwise. I can personally vouch for ZDOOM, being able to have full screen and improved graphics is a godsend.

ZDOOM still requires you have the real official WAD though.

I mean, you can check their listing. It lists id Software and Bethesda Softworks LLC as the company, so that is who the sale would go to minus the cut for GOG. Nothing goes to the "original" creators, just who owns the copyright and distribution rights.

Consider that with Bungie breaking away from Activision and no real projects in the pipeline for Blizzard (two remakes and a mobile title), the company is looking long term. The layoffs happened in non-development areas of the company (which I read as sales and administration) and they're still planning to expand development positions by 20%. This is all just preparation for 2019 being a lot less profitable than 2018.

Imagine if it was Banjo & Kazooie and one of his moves was the Ice key from stop and swap.

Then when you think it's over Sora comes out of nowhere and says "Cool, I have one just like that." then equips his Frozen keyblade.

Then The Other Promise/Vector to the Heavens from KH3 starts playing and chat explodes.
