Take down a resurrected Maggie Thatcher in this upcoming Doom II campaign

By - | Views: 19,690

Yes that's right, Maggie Thatcher has somehow escaped from Hell in Thatcher's Techbase, a new Doom II campaign that has been announced that will be free to grab on September 24.

Developed by 3D: Doom Daddy Digital this will be a very British take on the whole Doom thing that I can't wait to jump into with a cuppa. Might need a few biscuits too as apparently the UK is the 10th circle of Hell - well it's not wrong. It will be provided as a standard WAD file so it will be playable across any system that can play it. The developer mentioned compatibility with PRBoom, DSDA-Doom, ZDoom and GZDoom.

The trailer mentions it will have support for five difficult levels, co-op and deathmatch support, gamepad support and an original soundtrack too.

It will need a copy of DOOM II which you can get from GOG and Steam.

Stuff like that is insidious and disgusting.

This writing is so cute of naivety and philosophical, political and ethical ignorance that I wonder if you were trolling considering your pseudo or making second degree humor?

People that claims to not communicate on personal opinions about politics, world state(economic, ecological,...) were already said by Plato as "very political" (so old problem, no new ideas): in fact, they agree and are fine with the current system. And by saying to other to not tell their political opinions in their daily life and products, they ask them to shut up and join their "every thing is fine in our current system view". This is a corner-stone of consequentialism.

Claiming/requesting people to not talk about politics in arts, culture, etc. is thus ultra-political.
I agree with much of the substance of this but I thought it was said rather more rudely than it needed to be.

Spoiler, click me


That allows for more civil discussion than satire. Believe me, being a moderate in my neck of the woods depends on listening to everyone, otherwise I'd get run out of town on a rail. I really wish us in the USA had a third political party for those willing to cooperate with both sides rather than fight the others. Yes, there are independent parties, but most of them are even further right or left than Democrats or Republicans. There's no large enough party dedicated to compromise to make much difference.

People are dying because neither side is willing to compromise on the smallest things. I'm sick of that. I can't even watch the news without crying anymore. I find myself asking "Please people, can we love each other like we're supposed to?" in my daily life nearly every day.
One thing I've always found strange about US politics is their notion that the Democratic party is a thing that's somehow "on the left", so that for instance someone can be amazed at something being "even further . . . left than Democrats".
By the standards of most countries with multi-party politics, the US Democrats would be equivalent to about the second furthest right party they've got, with like four significant parties further to the left.
Bottom line: Corporate neoliberals who don't even mostly believe in public health care are not left wing.
