The /newstuff Chronicles #455
jmickle66666666 on Ultimate Doom 2 : Dead Anomaly: I don't think anyone but Fellowzdoomer could ever think "Dead Simple would be way better with barons instead" [...] I have to admit it is pretty flawless. [...] I don't mean the "standard" definition of flaws, such as terribly aligned textures. Basically no gameplay, the sky texture being used on a wall, terrible item placement, the appearance of being created in 1994, and many many more; this is MORE than that. It transcends criticism in ways that people have been striving for for years. (more)


Dooming on Mount Elbert

Ant sends word of this recent happening. Why would a group of people climb up to 14,461 feet with a bunch of laptops, keyboards, and a wireless router in tow? To play some Doom, I guess.

Zandronum Saturday Night Survival #134 - Knee Deep in ZDoom

Today we are doing what you probably never imagined us doing - running the eye-opening, CPU-stressing, amazing Knee Deep in ZDoom! Yes, it has been successfully run on Zandronum before, so let's play it survival! Enough detail has been applied within these maps that you may think some of the authors are crazy. But it did win two awards, so I am not one to complain.

The /newstuff Chronicles #454

kmxexii on Robot Junkyard Workshop's Doom Pack: This is a pretty cool nine-map episode from another dude named Nick Baker. It's full of classic Doom II action and is pretty forgiving in the health and ammo departments, especially the latter. There's no strong sense of progression as you flip back and forth between tech and Hell, but there is a bit of a narrative as you move through this little Doom microcosm. (more)
