The /newstuff Chronicles #469
mouldy on Bloody steel: This is billed as a ten-map episode, though technically it's an eight-map adventure with a "thanks-for-playing" and a bonus map at the end. It sure felt like more than eight maps though, as a lot of them are pretty epic in scale. [...] I have to say I really enjoyed this wad and would definitely recommend a download. (more)

New Doom 2 Speedrun Record

In speedrunning circles, few accomplishments are more prestigious than owning the world record for fastest speedrun of a whole game. As Doom inspired the very first online speedrunning community, any Doom speedrunner who can claim such a record must find it doubly so. The Doom 2 speedrunning record fell in dribs and drabs over many years, first dipping below 30 minutes in 1999, to below 29 minutes in 2001, to sub-27 in 2003. A record of 26:09 was set by Radek Pecka in late 2003, and stood unbroken for seven years, before being smashed by Looper in 2010, who dropped the record all the way down to 23:25. Now, after four years, relative newcomer Zero-Master has broken the record with a new single-segment Doom 2 UV speedrun in 23:03. Could sub-23 be far away? Just how much more improvement can be wrung out of the routes? Only time will tell.

A download link for the demo can be found on the COMPET-N website, and discussion of it can be found on the Doomworld forums. Zero-Master has also uploaded a Youtube video of the demo, for those who feel like using a few orders of magnitude more bandwidth to see the action.
