Bugs: Recent Topics Paging, Uploading Images & Preview (11 Dec 2020)

Recent Topics paging, uploading images and preview bugs require a patch which has not yet been released.

× WELCOME TO TRASHDOME!

This is part of a series of bloody matches to the death. Show support for your favorite game so it will do better in the fight. You can support it by writing why you think its the better game and more importantly by betting (i.e. voting for) it. Please make it clear for when I check the bets later. You have until Friday when I tally the bets and declare the winner. I will reserve my bet for any tie-breakers.

Although you should be familiar with both games, there is no rule that says you have to have played both of them. The only rule in Trashdome is this;

Two games enter! One game leaves!

Somebody mentioned earlier that the monsters in Doom stick around longer than the ones in Descent (ie. you actually have to track wounds on the guys), is this true? if it is, I might be tempted to pick it up/try it out.


I haven't played Descent, but its not uncommon for DOOM monsters to hang around for mulitple turns of combat. We've damaged some and still ended up running away from them for fear of being killed.

Marines with grenades and rocket launchers vs. elves and fairies with bows and magic. Let me think about this for about 2 seconds.

Easy answer: DOOM

There are no fairies in Descent! How about a Minotaur!? Yeti!? Barbarian!? Viking!? Dwaves! Orcs!

Also there's WAY more cleavage in Descent.

Cleavage ...of skulls?

Wow, Doom is kicking Descent's ass. I hope that the FFG guys are reading this. They could do another Doom expansion, except just not use the word Doom anywhere. Make it just barely standalone game with a very similar theme that just so happens to be completely compatible with Doom. That way, they can avoid paying additional licensing fees or royalties or whatever.

Red Scorpion alone counts for a LOT of cleavage, but there are plenty of other scanty female heroes. Yeah I know that's a Runebound card, but I couldn't find a good pic of the Descent card. It's the same art.

Do the Doom marines even have character cards? How much variation is there in being a marine compared to Descent's plethora of characters?

No, marines don't have character cards. You get skill cards like Sniper or Medic that you combine to make your character unique. I'd say there's more variation because who your character is is left to your imagination instead of written for you on a card. If you want your character to be Bruce Campbell and carry a chainsaw and shotgun the whole game, you can do that. Red Scorpion can never be The Rock, Red Scorpion is always Red Scorpion.

That makes sense! Never thought about that. Gamedesigners take note of those wise words!

You can create your own Descent hero from scratch!

Yeah, there is a fairy hero in Tomb of Ice, and we can build some up with the hero character creator.

Doom is great. I enjoy it for it's simplicity.

Descent is great. I enjoy it for it's great big sprawling obesity.

I couldn't pick one or the other, they both serve a different purpose. Descent is more polished, Doom is more immediate.

Yeah you're right, but it's not "all elves and fairies"
