Hello!

Quaker540 Blog 2 comments

Welcome to my profile! Name's Michael, and it's a pleasure meeting you. I often help out people on this site and upload a bunch of mods and add-ons for many games that I like, revolving around graphical changes, sounds, music, code rewrites, or completely different mods, you name it.

Now, let's talk a bit about myself.

My full name is Mihail (Michael) Donatos Karagkiaouris, coming from Greece. My sex is Male, my height is 1.89 metres and my blood type is O+.

About me


I'm a freelancer programmer working on multiple projects (Currently my own game engine), a computer technician, a freelancer sound designer (I have contributed to a bunch of web series/films around many sites) and a guitarist. I sometimes give concerts to clubs and parties (I'm the one that sings and plays guitar). The other instruments are covered from my friends. My interest on computers started when I was 4, though at that age all I could do was to destruct computers (lol), and from there I wanted to learn more and more about computers. So here I am!

My Appearance


  • Head: I have dark blond wavy hair, green eyes, "fleshy" lips and very few facial hair.
  • Body: Thin, abs, muscular chest/hands/legs and all that because I used to gym a lot (I'm not into drugs though). Kind of like Bruce Lee, but with a larger chest.
  • General: I always smell good and clean because I always bath, brush my teeth, use deodorant and sometimes a bit of perfume.

Before you ask, yes, I somewhat care about my appearance. That is the style I was born with ;)

My Character

I'm level-headed and bright, always cracking jokes and having a smile on my face, being fair and supportive. I listen, understand and feel other peoples sufferings and help them when they need help. I also look and feel free, sometimes going with trips with my family or friends, visiting beaches, exploring new places and taking challenges.

I'm never shy, coy or anxious with people. I never understood why people worry/get shy way too much when they are around unknown people. I treat everyone like it's my buddy (Kind, cheerful, helpful etc.) because hell, we are all human species - The people around us aren't different.

I'm not a smoker or an alcohol drinker, but I have to admit that beer is my favourite alcohol drink. It's satisfying and refreshing. Mind you I carefully watch my health so I drink very rarely or at special events.

I'm always against terrorism, war, racism, fascism, bullying, manslaughter or other actions against humanity. Frankly speaking I don't always have the greatest things to say about humanity but I love and respect the people around me, and I'll do my best to keep everyone feel comfortable, safe and protected, implying I'll help everyone no matter who s/he is and what s/he has done. It's true we have done many horrible things in our wonderful planet Earth, but I can assure you that our mistakes are recoverable. We can change.

Oh, and my favourite colour is blue.

My Personal Computer


I only have a Laptop that's pretty weak but here goes:

  1. CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor (Clocked at 2.00 GHz).
  2. GPU: On-board Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS 910GML Express Chipset Family.
  3. RAM: 1 GB x 2 (Dual Sticks) DDR2.
  4. HDD: FUJITSU MHW2080AT (IDE, 80 GB hard storage).
  5. OS: Windows XP SP3.

My Favourite Quotes

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
― Albert Einstein

“Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.”
― Bruce Lee

“When life gives you obstacles, you must summon the courage and walk on!”
― Bruce Lee

“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”
― Bruce Lee

“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it.”
― Jordan Belfort

“No matter what happened to you in your past, you are not your past, you are the resources and the capabilities you glean from it. And that is the basis for all change.”
― Jordan Belfort

“If you want to be rich, never give up. People tend to give up. If you have persistence, you will come out ahead of most people. More importantly, you will learn. When you do something, you might fail. But that’s not because you’re a failure. It’s because you have not learnt enough. Do it differently each time. One day, you will do it right. Failure is your friend.”
― Jordan Belfort

That is all folks. Like I said, I would be more than glad to help you no matter what, so please don't hesitate and send me a message if you need anything. Again, welcome to my profile and have fun browsing around! :D

You're right. I'm sorry, I misread.

Hard to tell from a short teaser. There's no real gameplay footage so we can't know how well the game plays. I don't like the idea of each player having it's own unique abilities though. It sounds "Blizzardish".

Hey Quake! What is your opinion about the new Doom? Does it suck or does it look like cool as hell?

Hello there, thanks for the comment! I haven't played it yet, but from what I have seen it looks great. The gunplay seems solid and Doomish, the sound department is amazing, the graphics are gorgeous and the visceral violence, executions and movement are all well done. Here's what I like from what I have seen, in more detail:

- Fast movement with high mobility (Double jump, no landing damage).
- No health regeneration.
- No Aim-Down-Sight.
- No reloading.
- No weapon limit.
- Hordes of enemies on screen.
- Beautiful visuals.
- Break neck speed.
- Refreshing, old-school model design.
- Little to no hitscan enemies.
- Infighting.
- Focused on gameplay, not story.
- Few QTEs, and most of them are optional.
- Full fledged arena multiplayer ala Quake 3.
- Built-in map-maker for singleplayer and multiplayer.

So far I have few gripes with the new Doom, I'm not really a fan of the QTEs and music (I like the music, but in my opinion Metal/Rock would be more fitting).

To sum it all up, the game looks amazing, and I would recommend people buying it. From what I've heard there will also be post-release development, so expect gameplay updates and patches soon.

I love the violence of this game. Is really good to execute the monsters like Brutal-Doom.

Yeah, me too. Not really a fan of the fatalities, but they are a good gameplay addition.
