    The codex stuff is also a big step down from Doom 2016. In Doom 2016 they were all done as UAC corporate reports and blurbs. So you had the juxtoposition of corporate jargon and workplace culture, and occult hell stuff that got progressively more and more off the wall. In Eternal, they're mostly just dry info dumps. Very disappointing.

    EDIT: Like, 2016 had a very big air of the plot just being nonsense to justify shooting endless hordes of demons and the game knows and embraces it. Doom Eternal feels like it's high on it's own supply and that it thinks it's heavy metal scifi epic is just the raddest shit in the world and you can either sit back and enjoy it in all of it's gory details, or just skip the cutscenes like one of those people.

    The air of "The Doomguy does not give a shit about the plot" is almost entirely gone, replaced with "Doomguy has to chill out repeatedly so plot and exposition can happen." It puts the onus of not taking the plot too seriously away from the Slayer and puts it back into the hands of the player, which removes one fo the best things about 2016.

    I think this is in part a victim not really of the developer "not getting it" as much as their entire story not really being revealed until about 2/3 of the way through this game. Spoilers for Doom Eternal
    It's shown that Doomguy, at the end of I guess Doom 64? Was transported to the Space Warriors Planet and rises up through the ranks of their army until he's given his current magic powers and then trapped in Hell.

    So in Doom 2016, he literally does not have any time for this corporate hell bullshit because he knows more than they do, is stronger than them, and has only one goal, which is to stop the invasion.

    In Doom Eternal the corporate stuff is all done, earth is being invaded actively, and the antagonists are people that he's on the same level with. So he engages with it differently.

    You actually see more of the "throws the plot aside" in one of the later levels when he's interacting with humans for the first time in the game.

    I get why people are disappointed by it, but I actually really liked how Eternal shifts between those two modes.

    listened to Teenagers With Attitude episode 195, it's the first episode with Jason back on the team and they defeat the main villain, anyway a good chunk of it's about baby food for some reason
    "Oh, Zack's back in the hosting chair. I guess I'm being replaced."
    "Zack, I want to seriously challenge your claim that they can run out of colors."
    "I love Power Rangers, I love all their shit, I've never given a single crap about the motorcycles." it's always just like, they use them in like two episodes for no reason and that's it (I'm pretty sure it's like that in Sentai too)
    "If these guys just owned some companies in Angel Grove, their brand of evil would thrive." gotta be a brand for your brand of evil to work
    "Do you think Zordon gives performance reviews to the power rangers?"
    "Tommy gives weekly reviews."
    "Can I tell you that I stubbed my same toe four times in the same day last week?" thanks to Zack, Teenagers With Attitude really has more physical comedy than you'd think a podcast could have
    "I have to get into the mindset of Mike from like two minutes ago."
    "When you get a new zord, it's not a new fuckin' iPhone"
    "Please see my new fetish website, just the feet dot com." "I guarantee that's an actual website, and people should not go there."

    I can't imagine someone who looks at those filmographies and goes "Hmm, yes, the ones who make all the crime movies would be more interesting to talk about than the guy who made Marwen, Polar Express, Roger Rabbit, and Back to the Future"

    New teaser for the magnus archives was released, confirming this to be the final season

    man, what a bummer; I finally find a good 'cast and it's about to wrap up

    it's weird that effective narrative progression is considered an overall con instead of a pro, I know. I just wish that universe didn't have to "end", as it were. There's something to be said for the ol' monster of the week trope - there's always another week coming

    my issue with Zemeckis is it's so long, it's 19 movies, exactly as long as Demme just was and that took 5 months

    I want them to cover more people more often

    this is why I am ride or die for the only choice, Bong Joon-Ho

    seven episodes, all killer no filler

    I want a Martin Campbell series.

    I'm also starting to think he should have done The Force Awakens instead of JJ.

    listened to Totally Reprise episode 139, it's a long one that's mostly about bad home improvement projects, it's great
    "If I tell Zack what we're doing after we're done, can you bleep it out, Ashley?" "Yeah." "[BLEEP]" "Oh, Jesus!"
    "What a specific beef, from years ago, like, I'm mad that I know what you're talking about." fortunately I don't know what it is
    "Here's the thing: Power Rangers sucks shit!"
    "Oh, yeah, why would you want to talk about good things?"
    "and then he sent a skunk robot to Earth to make everyone too stinky to fuck each other." okay sounds like power rangers is gonna be getting pretty wild pretty soon
    "I think wrestling might be stupid." "You're just now getting there?"
    "You're gonna drive to your ivory tower high school with that classic car."
    "I think all dads eventually become deck werewolves."
    "When we moved into our house, it had 0 gazebos."
    "We called it a creek, I think everyone in that town called it a creek, it was a drainage ditch."
    "He did finish the pond with the waterfall, but he tends not to finish most projects."
    "I have a fuckin' dad, I know how this works."
    "So you have like 2.75 gazebos."
    I can't even picture what's going on in this yard at all
    "Well my dad is building three gazebos, clearly a monocle isn't out of order."
    "He really wanted to make it look like a TGI Friday's" excuse me
    "You gotta save it first, but then you can ruin it."
    wait this villain was actually in another episode?
    "The US government was just developing foot fetish AI."
    "Let's go back and listen to that Catwoman one, see how that Yanny and Laurel joke plays now."
    "Somebody just like, invented snakes, but they have legs now."
    "WOOHP has its own prison, huh?" extremely
    "Speaking of terrible things, is Alex of Asian descent?" "Nope!" "No." "No." "Okay, do you know why I'm asking that question?" "Yeah!" "Yep." totally spies really slipped some racism in there just out of fucking nowhere
    "I feel like they almost tricked themselves into believing that she's Chinese."
    "Yeah, these three spies get taken down by four Barbie dolls." well of course they're outnumbered, what can you do
    pretty sure I've only heard of Small Soldiers in the context of podcast episodes about tv show episodes where toys attack people
    very bothered by the whole seth toyman continuity situation
    "So Jerry made a robot servant that has feelings, and then made it do all of his work, is what happened." yeah that sounds like something he'd do
    "Sam's accessories are a gun and a man cowering in fear."
    "Boy, I don't like the term 'WOOHP chute.'"
    orange tictacs really are just candy
    "Can I go?" "No. We're smoking the whole pack."

    Also this was as good as you'd imagine



    Also there is a new Behind the Bastards on the notoriously alarming literature 'The Survivor' by notorious lunatic Kurt Saxon which I am definitely not extremely familiar with due to a terrible childhood

    The second robot is also a bomb

    I'm going to need every episode of Newcomers to feature Paul F Tompkins moving forward.

    He was a fantastic addition for their Force Awakens episode.

    Interesting Facts: Drainage ditches are usually put in places where creeks naturally form because that's where the water goes, that's why there's a creek there in the first place. Creeks are nature's drainage ditch, you could say. See also LA's giant concrete flood canals as seen in Terminator 2 and GTA San Andreas, AKA the Los Angeles River.
