Yea, I missed the "county" thing. They wont achieve much with only "recommendations" tho, I guess they are trying out a hybrid of social distancing and crowd immunity, but this will be a dangerous experiment, I have heard that many prominent virologists are facepalming themselves after hearing Sweden's sluggishness and indecisiveness, but hey, good luck and stay inside as much as you can, Sweden could be a huge ticking bomb.

On the other hand, as of tomorrow, we are more or less in a lock-down here. Leaving your home is permitted only for necessity purposes, it is even forbidden to travel/drive outside of your county, you must wear a mask inside every closed public space etc. Still, I have a dog and with it a green light to pretty much roam around freely, so no biggie.

Well, in the meantime, Doom Eternal is insanely fun. Rip and tear, until quarantine is done!

Mexico is going the same way as Sweden by the looks of things.

Didn’t we have a Mexicanese here?

Re: Quarantine Thread

I've been off work for almost 2 weeks. My wife and I just been gaming and watching a lot of movies and shows we've been meaning to watch and smoking our weight in weed. We watched Jojo Rabbit last night and it was pretty good. Finally going to watch either Doctor Sleep or Zombieland Doubletap tonight.

Here, in the southeastern states, it's been a really weird couple weeks. Half the population seems to be panicking, others couldn't give less of a fuck. There's hardly any products on the shelves of any store because a lot people refuse to stay indoors. Cases of covid-19 rises everyday so I wouldn't be surprised if I won't be returning to work next week. I wouldn't mind, that way I can focus on FF7 (I'm already chomping at the bit for RE3).

2 years is doubtful since they said a vaccine is at most a year and a half away.

Wrong thread, but I haven't been enjoying it. I don't like the Q3 style cartoony pickups, i'm miffed the arsenal is almost identical to 2016, I don't like the fixed combat gameplay loop (hardly any ammo-> chainsaw. Health -> glory kills. Armour -> flamethrower) and I hate hate hate all the dumbass platforming. Tis Doom, not Mario.

I just wanted a game where I shoot hordes of demons with guns and grab pickups. Not down for the brightly coloured jumping acrobatics party and forced kill/resource harvesting.

you can turn off the brightness of the ammo drops in the menu somewhere. The platforming thing is okay, I could take it or leave it. I kinda like the resource harvesting though. It makes things more frantic when you're really in a bind and you've down to a little bit of plasma and a couple rockets.

Good to see you back regardless, glad you're not caught up in the mayhem back east.

Re: Quarantine Thread

Thanks, it's good to have another forum to visit again. I'm asocial and a driver service provider for one of the big companies, so my life hasn't actually changed much during coronavirus. = )

However, I am severely immunocompromised (as is the family I live with) in the ways COVID19 likes, so being anal about sanitation and trying to use PPE is a new thing for me. My employer (and the other big players in this industry) don't do much to help protect their people. They've only very recently started attempting to do the absolute bare minimums (and failing).

Re: Quarantine Thread

It is unbelievable how quickly mankind can be tamed. Millions of people have been locked at home within just a few days. No need for wars and other threats. A simple virus dictates its rules to the whole planet. It is incredible, do not you think so? I am from https://postcodefinder.net/northern-ireland/ and I could never imagine such a scenario here. It looks like a thriller movie.
