    Why does Doom Eternal suck?

    Is it me or has Doom turned into some kind of jumping game? Maybe I'm getting too old, but there's way too much jumping around from platform to platform, swinging from things, trying to "stick" to walls...... Look, all I want to do in Doom is shoot the bad guys and chainsaw shit. If I could...

    Beware the Wraith

    Ok, I have a fairly old system that has Crossfired R290X GPUs. I was going to use it to run the new mMod in HL2 to see how it looks.
