Extra Lore #24: DOOM

Our 24th installment of the Extra Lore series brings Blue and Beard together to reminisce on one of the earlier titles in the First Person Shooter genre, DOOM – and jokingly explain their way through yet another series that both enjoyed (and supposedly didn’t have a story). So, gear up for some ripping and tearing as we dive headfirst into the hellish landscape that is the DOOM series – but don’t worry, we don’t leave all the jokes behind…it wouldn’t be FFC without someone making fun of things.

Ep 123 Summary

Episode 123 brings Blue, an extremely tardy Justin, Green, Beard, and returning special guest co-host PurpleChimera back together to discuss a rather hot topic at the moment – the “problem” of biased presentation of in-game story information. Namely – is it a problem? The group hashes it out among them (and yes, we’re back to the familiar group of Blue and Beard not really being on the same page), using figures such as the Speaker, Osiris, Toland, and even real life examples such as stereotypes in music, the historical research and experiences of Purple, and the dangers of angering abstract artists (GG, Justin).

Ep 122 Summary

Episode 122 brings Blue, Justin, Green, & Beard back together to dive into the lore that we have concerning the Exo race and their relationship with the concept of artificial intelligence. A big question that keeps getting brought up is: is the Exo ‘mind’ an artificial construct…or is it a natural intelligence which lives within an artificial shell? Is there a difference, at the end of the day? Why are Beard and Blue agreeing with each other so much?

Episode 98 Recap: New Monarchy

Not the past, not the future. The present is where we should turn our eyes.
The City is divided. We must unite beneath a single will.
Our choice is simple: find our strength, or face extinction.
What rules us, those of new monarchy, is our service to the greater welfare of the City.
So, Speak with the voice of the people, or be prepared to face them.
For A true leader speaks with the voice of the people.
They will know you fight not for yourself, but for the people’s will.
“There is strength in unity. And a King of many, will be the King of all.”
A finger can be broken. A fist cannot.
