Doom Eternal: This Ish is Fun

Livestreaming Doom Eternal: This is Some Fun Shit

I haven't had this much fun with a videogame in a long time

Doom Eternal works a little differently than what you'd expect from a standard first-person shooter--which is what makes it incredibly difficult to livestream it. 

It's a bit more like a resource management game, where you're constantly using either health, armor, or ammunition. I'm sure there are other resources because I've barely tapped into the game, but with initial looks, this frag-fest is unbelievably fun—and badass.

But Doom Eternal takes this constant resource management and wraps it into an absolute gorefest. I honestly regret at this point not picking up Doom 2016 simply because this title likely speaks volumes about how the previous game was.

And I'm sure with Doom Eternal's popularity right now, this is a sign that the latest release is definitely better. Even watching a twitch livestream of the game is entertaining as hell because there are moments that are non-stop, where the "Slayer" is constantly moving, using weaponry, dodging, dashing, and trying to stay alive in the midst of a pit of horror. Livestreaming Doom Eternal and defeating bosses is easier said than done.

And it does it so that the Doom IP doesn't feel old. There are a lot of returns of enemy favorites--the Cacodemon, the Revenant, the Imp, the Cyberdemon--but plenty are new as well. There's a total of 27 enemies to frag, and that seems small in comparison to the original Doom games--but trust me, that won't be on your mind playing this title.

I have to admit that I've been waiting for an FPS for years to satisfy what I've been looking for, and I think Doom Eternal does it. Move aside, Half-Life 3. This game is what I'm sticking to.

Classic and New: What Doom Eternal Brings Back and What it Does Differently

Keep in mind that I'm writing this from the perspective of someone who hasn't played Doom (2016), so some of this is new to me. However, I'm incredibly happy that I made this (risky) purchase, and here's why:


It's a bit of fan service to bring back classic enemies and weapons. The Cacodemon, Mancubus, Revenant, and Arachnotron are back (who couldn't bring back the Revenant?). But now a lot of enemies have specific weak points that make your game sessions a little easier. For instance, the cannons on an Arachnotron can be shot off. Cacodemons can be one-shotted with a grenade (and an ammo-less blood punch). Most of your heavier enemies can be disabled—if you're lucky enough to aim at their weapons.

As you'd expect, the shotgun, plasma rifle, rocket launcher, and other weapons have returned with a familiar, classic feel. However, with DE it's a 2-for-1 package with each weapon. They have modifications which turn your method of assault into something a little more special—want your shotgun full-auto? Change the modification. Would you rather lob grenades? Change the mod and lob away. The tried-and-true weapons are there, but modifications bring some refreshments.


The same kind of lock-and-key levels are back with plenty of secrets to find and goodies to scores.  However, the levels in Doom Eternal are grandiose as all hell. We're talking skyscraper-size doors opening with rotating cyberpunk locks and massive, intricate gears.

And this time, the map is a lot easier to understand—old Doom maps were never very easy to read. 

Thank you to ID and Bethesda for giving me a first-person shooter that I've wanted for a long time.

Also, here's a clip of me and how bad I am at jumpscares, playing Rise of the Tomb Raider:

Thanks for reading, and check out my stream if you'd like. I typically stream at Noon PST, weekends, but with the state of things currently, I've been streaming a lot more.

How to Tell if Someone is Viewbotting (and other malicious things)

There's an aspect of livestreaming video games that gets under my skin a bit. Viewbotting. A lot of streamers have done it in the past. In fact, I once caught someone viewbotting and looked at who the bots were "following." A laundry list of very familiar names showed up, many partnered accounts on Twitch with millions of followers. Well-known streamers making a living. It's definitely abused a lot on streaming platforms, sort of the "black hat" method of livestreaming. Thankfully, nobody I saw listed from those bot accounts was any streamer that I was supporting. I don't bother supporting anyone trying to find "get partnership quick" methods. If you want to build a business out of streaming video games , then please don't bother viewbotting. You'll eventually find you wasted your money and your community will likely abandon you. However, if you feel that someone is viewbotting, here's a few ways you can tell someone is

Horizon Forbidden West: A Totally Biased Review

 A Look at Guerrilla's Smash Hit I'll admit I'm biased. I originally played the first Horizon (Zero Dawn) upon it's release, knowing that the game would be something special. I had seen it advertised at conventions in the past and had a strong feeling that if Sony was going to pump millions of dollars into its advertising, the game would be phenomenal. I was right, and so when the second was announced, the only action I cared about was procuring the game so I could stream it on Twitch . Because of the first game, I'm heavily biased about the second. But that doesn't mean I still can't have a critical eye for Horizon: Forbidden West, and so before I jump into the positive aspects of why I make sweet love enjoy this game, I'd at least like to provide what I hated . Which, admittedly, isn't a lot. What I Hated About Horizon: Forbidden West Lens Flares For anyone that has picked up a Horizon game, you'd probably think it had a lot of influence from

3 Ways How to Stay Motivated When it Comes to Twitch Streaming

  This is a difficult topic for me for various reasons. Probably the most glaring reason that it's difficult for me is that I, among others, have been going through motivational slumps in the past several months when it comes to twitch streaming . For others, their stream is entirely a business so the motivation isn't really a factor; if you don't stream, it affects your standard of living. For others, especially those that are trying to establish their selves by "doing the grind," motivation comes and goes. It's never an easy answer to the motivation question, but I think I've been able to whittle motivation when it comes to twitch streaming down to 3 methods. Here they are: 3 Methods to Motivate Yourself Streaming A Quick Guide to Getting Back on the Twitch Track So, as before, these are 3 methods or ways for those of us that are trying to push the envelope when it comes to streaming—not the ones that are well established and make a living from full-time
